Nicolas Party “Arches”
November 30, 2018 – February 24, 2019
Opening in November 2018, M WOODS presents a solo exhibition by Swiss artist Nicolas Party. Working across painting, pastel, sculpture, video and installation, Party is renowned for a deep sense of site specificity and temporality in his projects, which often feature hand-painted murals that exist on gallery walls only for the duration of an exhibition. Within these painted environments sit two and three dimensional works which, through a style and colour system unique to the artist, offer a contemporary take on traditional subjects such as still life, portraiture, landscape and the sculptural bust.
Party’s exhibition at M WOODS will be his first at a non-profit institution in Asia and his largest to date, bringing together recent works with a suite of new sculptures and wallpaintings created on site at the museum.
