Fall season 2013: Otherworldly & Siobhán Hapaska

Each year, Magasin 3 dedicates two galleries to annual exhibitions featuring works from the permanent collection, seen through the eyes of varying curators. For the 2013–14 season, chief curator Richard Julin has focused on Irish artist Siobhán Hapaska and Bronwyn Griffith, collections curator, has selected five artists for inclusion in her exhibition Otherworldly. Both exhibitions provide excellent opportunities to juxtapose recent acquisitions with long-held works in the collection of Magasin 3.


OTHERWORDLY

Annika von Hausswolff, Anish Kapoor, Charles Long, Pipilotti Rist, Per B Sundberg

September 28, 2013 – June 8, 2014

Curator: Bronwyn Griffith

The works presented in Otherworldly explore perception not as a passive process, but as a creative one. Our life experiences inform how we read and interpret what we see, and by encountering the unexpected we are incited to see anew. Through scale, spatiality and process, the works included explore the act of aesthetic perception and experience.


SIOBHÁN HAPASKA

September 28, 2013 – June 8, 2014

Curator: Richard Julin

Siobhán Hapaska creates multisensory works that continually extend the definition of sculpture. Magasin 3 first exhibited Siobhán’s work in 2000 and now owns one of the most extensive collections of her work in the world. Hapaska was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1963. She lives and works in London. Her recent solo exhibitions include the Barbican Centre, London (2010); Glasgow Sculpture Studios (2009); and Camden Arts Centre, London (2007). She is a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Award (2003), represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale (2001) and participated in Documenta X (1997).
