Continuing and expanding upon the narrative arc of Anne Imhof’s recent exhibitions, the works in Avatar II interweave notions of reality and artifice, presence and absence, exposure and concealment.
In the first show to span all four of the London gallery’s floors, the works range from oil paintings, large-scale paintings on aluminium panels, and drawings to film and sound works. Fitness equipment and gym furniture are installed throughout the gallery, blurring the boundaries between functional objects and art while creating a multilayered experience as visitors encounter and move through Imhof’s abundant spaces.
Imhof’s spatial orchestrations are evident from the outset: as visitors approach the exhibition from street level, their line of sight into the gallery’s glass storefront is delimited, boxed in by rows of lockers and blocked in part by the back of one of Imhof’s aluminium panel works suspended unexpectedly from the ceiling.
