Lehmann Maupin at Frieze New York
by Lehmann Maupin
Location: Booth C11, Randall's Island, New York
Artist(s): DO Ho Suh, Teresita FERNANDEZ
Date: 10 May - 13 May 2013

Lehmann Maupin participates in the second edition of Frieze New York with a two-artist installation that poses a dialogue between the work of Teresita Fernández and Do Ho Suh. While their work is characterized by various stylistic differences, these two artists are linked by a shared interest in architecture and an acute awareness of the surrounding environment. Teresita Fernández and Do Ho Suh both approach the formal concepts of sculpture through a unique engagement with material, and produce works that exist independently but also respond to their architectural settings, creating immersive, perceptual experiences for the viewer. Lehmann Maupin's booth will feature new large-scale drawings by Fernández juxtaposed alongside Suh's freestanding polyester construction Wielandstr.18, 12159 Berlin.

For Frieze New York, Teresita Fernández debuts a new body of work that continues her inquiries into ideas of materiality, mining, historical landscape painting and land art. These large-scale drawings made with India ink on reflective chromed metal explore the materiality and cultural significance of gold with ephemeral ghost-like floating landscape constructions. The works also relate to the sculptural installation she recently completed in Shanghai, China, titled Yellow Mountains. Made entirely of gold chains and pyrite ("Fool's Gold"), Yellow Mountains is an inverted topographical sculpture that refers to Huangshan, the mountain range that has inspired countless poems and paintings throughout Chinese history. These new drawings become like gestural film stills or cinematic panoramas. The transparent ink marks and the mirror-like golden surface play with the painterly convention of figure-in-the-landscape by superimposing the viewer's distorted reflection into the image. This August, the Aspen Art Museum is honoring Fernández with their annual Aspen Art Award for Art in recognition for her outstanding contributions to the visual arts. In 2014, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, will present a major solo-exhibition with the artist.

Conceived while in residency at the DAAD Artists in Berlin Program from August 2009 to 2010, Do Ho Suh's Wielandstr.18, 12159 Berlin (2011) is a life-size replica of the three corridors within the 18th-century apartment the artist called home during his time in Germany. Throughout his career, Suh has replicated various architectural spaces charged with personal significance, including his homes in Korea and New York. Stemming from his interest in site-specificity and the transportation of architectural spaces, Suh's intricate reproductions of the places in which he has lived blur the boundary between private and public realms by allowing viewers into some of his most personal and intimate spaces. Wielandstr.18, 12159 Berlin has been exhibited in the artist's solo shows Home within Home at the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2012), and Perfect Home at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa (2012-2013). Suh's work will also be included in Homebodies, a group exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, on view from 29 June - 13 October 2013. Additional works on paper by the artist will also be on view at the booth.
