Gagosian is pleased to present “ENTIRELYFEARLESS,” an exhibition of metal sculpture by John Chamberlain. Organized in collaboration with the Estate of John Chamberlain, the exhibition is the first in London since “New Sculpture” at Gagosian Britannia Street in 2011.
This summer, the north wing of Herrenchiemsee Castle, built by Ludwig II, provides the glamorous setting for artworks from the Pinakothek der Moderne. For the first time on this site, modern meets tradition, Europe meets America. Exhibition spaces filled with major works by Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Arnulf Rainer and Eugen Schönebeck respond to large-scale installations by Dan Flavin, Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning and John Chamberlain.
Two of John Chamberlain’s monumental aluminum foil works will be installed at LongHouse Reserve from April 2017 until October 2018. FROSTYDICKFANTASY (2008) and PINEAPPLESURPRISE (2010) are among the later sculptures produced during the artist’s sixty-year career. As much as 15 feet in height, the works are constructed from silver and copper colored industrial aluminum, which has been looped and flexed into whimsical, biomorphic forms. The sculptures will be situated within the gardens, emphasizing their formal connection to the wildness of nature.
