Thomas Zipp: 3 Contributions to the Theory of Mass-Abberations in Modern Religions

For his third solo show at Alison Jacques Gallery, Thomas Zipp has transformed the spaces into atmospheric rooms reminiscent of a place of worship, in which religious imagery and sexual motifs collide. Zipp combines a range of forms - from aluminium paintings to electric candles, oversized conical ear tubes to photographs of life-sized dolls - to transport us into his visionary world. The show and its title are premised on Sigmund Freud's 'Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex' (1920), which fixated on our need for deviations from pure connections between the sexual object and sexual aim, and which Zipp uses to navigate us through his uncanny landscape in search of strange interconnecting reference points and dialogues.

Yayoi Kusama

9 February – 5 June 2012

The nine decades of Yayoi Kusama's life have taken her from rural Japan to the New York art scene to contemporary Tokyo, in a career in which she has continuously innovated and re-invented her style. Well-known for her repeating dot patterns, her art encompasses an astonishing variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance and immersive installation. It ranges from works on paper featuring intense semi-abstract imagery, to soft sculpture known as "Accumulations", to her "Infinity Net" paintings, made up of carefully repeated arcs of paint built up into large patterns.

The Curator's Egg. Altera Pars

Back in 1994, a year in which the end of the world was confidently predicted by Jehova’s Witnesses and the first women priests were ordained by the Church of England, a year which also saw the launch of the National Lottery, Anthony Reynolds Gallery organised a large group exhibition in a very small space and called it The Curator’s Egg.
