Nick Cave: Spinner Forest
Remai Modern’s atrium has undergone a huge transformation with a large-scale work by Chicago-based artist Nick Cave. The work, titled Spinner Forest, is made up of strands of thousands of wind spinners that cascade from the ceiling and envelop the staircase from Level 1 to Level 2.
Spinner Forest is a striking work when seen from afar, creating a meditative and mesmerizing constellation of shapes, colour and movement. But it reveals more the closer you get. Within each spinning mobile are shapes that comment on gun violence, specifically in Cave’s home city. Alongside the concentric shapes most commonly seen in these popular lawn decorations, the spinners also contain the outlines of guns, bullets and teardrops.
Laure Prouvost: Oma-je
Oma-je is acclaimed French artist Laure Prouvost’s largest exhibition to date in North America. It celebrates her relationship to artistic predecessors including John Latham, Louise Bourgeois, Agnes Varda, and Niki de Saint Phalle, amongst others. The exhibition also transitions into more recent works that look to embodied ways of knowing for inspiration, shifting from Grandfather to Grandmother and forefather to foremother. Prouvost is known for her playful use of language, translation and transliteration, experimental narrated video, and immersive and surprising installations that transport visitors into unfamiliar worlds created largely from everyday objects.
