Rita Ackermann & Andro Wekua: Chapter 4

11:00–19:00・May 01, 2021–Jul 03, 2021・Fergus McCaffrey Tokyo 3-5-9 Kita-Aoyama, Minato-ku

European-born duo artists Rita Ackermann and Andro Wekua stage chaos and political fragments as the touchstones of their artistry. Using graphite and oil crayons, Ackermann paints large-scale compositions that are figuratively abstract and provokingly bold, oftentimes producing a final picture that rakes viewers back to her early life in the 1990s Eastern Block. Wekua, too, works in a range of broad media, from collages, sculptures and installations, to evoke a dark emotional dialogue — a direct trajectory against his preference for Rothko-inspired bright hues of pink, magentas, acid yellow and more. Collaborating together on the grounds of their common repressed experience and, above all, their long-time kinship, this dual exhibition oscillates between subtle symbolism and audacious artistic strokes, the hazy past and the present.
