Dark Matter is a three part exhibition by Thomas Kneubühler, a Swiss artist based in Montréal, presented at different venues across Montréal – Patrick Mikhail Gallery, RIDM Headquaters and Galerie B-312. Dark Matter unites Days in Night and Land Claim, two of Kneubühler’s recent projects. Produced as the result of an artist residency at CFS Alert, a military and research station in the high Arctic located 800 km from the North Pole, Days in Night examines the phenomenon of 24 hour-long polar nights, an experience of living in the dark and the limits of how much one can see. (shown at Patrick Mikhail Glalery and RIDM Headquarters) Similarly, Land Claim (shown at Galerie B-312) investigates mining conditions in Northern Quebec, a highly controlled territory hidden from the public eye and its connection to global markets. Thomas Kneubühler is interviewed below about his upcoming exhibition series, by fellow artist Andreas Rutkauskas Read more

DAVID BEN WHITE
30 October – 5 December 2015
l’étrangère is delighted to present Inside Outside: a new body of work encompassing painting and sculpture by the British artist David Ben White. Absorbed within the language and aspirations of modernist architecture, design and art, White’s paintings and sculptures disrupt the self-enclosed logic of this prescriptive legacy through a subversion of its objects and spaces.

The transition from the bright but fragile autumnal sunshine and colours of The Regent’s Park into the 13th edition of Frieze London, which ran from 14th – 17th October, was unsettling. As one’s eyes struggled to adjust to being plunged into darkness and the looming shapes of other fair goers and staff, white daubed slogans didn’t reassure: ‘welcome to purgatory’.
Spine-tingling and mystifying the space was created by the equally mysterious American artist, Lutz Baker, and immediately initiated one into this year’s Frieze Projects. Curated by Nicola Lees, the commissions create hyperreal environments subverting and transforming the visitor’s interaction with the fair.

White Conduit Projects, London
White Conduit Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of Nick Waplington’s 1990s photographs of the ruins of Japan’s Battleship Island (Gunkanjima). This tiny abandoned island off the coast of Nagasaki, was once a coal mine with a population of 5000, squeezed into a complex maze of imposing concrete apartment blocks (Japan’s first high-rises). Vacated in 1974, Gunkanjima was recently approved as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

WHY IS THE REMOTE ALWAYS SO FAR AWAY
11 September – 24 October 2015
Maria Stenfors, London
Text by Yasmina Reggad
With his first solo exhibition at Maria Stenfors, Finnish artist Hans Rosenström outlines themes that have punctuated his practice in the past years. The exhibition presents recent works that address the notions of liminal and transitional states and study the limits of our experience of the world from a singular perspective.
The title Why the remote is always so far away clearly points at something unattainable ahead of us and at the same time paradoxically replicates the precision of a measuring tool. Nevertheless, the very question Hans Rosenström is raising lies in the position of the body itself in relation to the remote. The body stands in the centre, in the in-betweeness surrounded by unreachable far-aways. In this exhibition, the artist investigates the multiple nature and social functions of liminal spaces. Rosenström also strives to draw and mould the contours of the inside and the outside of the body as well as reveals its faculty of resonance that gives shape to its surroundings.
