Founded in 1980, the Fellbach Triennial for Small Sculpture is one of the most longstanding art exhibitions in Germany, tracing the current impact and significance of small sculpture in contemporary art.
Following the 2018 acquisition of "Privileged Points" - a monumental sculpture work by Nairy Baghramian into the Mudam Collection, Mudam Luxembourg - Musee d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean has invited Baghramian to present her work for the launch of the Park Dräi Eechelen's new sculpture programme. The installation of the artworks will be split between two locations, the collection piece will be displayed in the Grand Hall of the museum while the accompanying two works of the series will occupy the esplanade of Park Dräi Eechelen.
Nairy Baghramian continues her investigation of traditional sculpture with her new series Maintainers, which comprises three independent elements : raw aluminium casts, various shapes in coloured wax and lacquer painted braces. Arranged in the exhibition space in an apparently disparate manner, a resonance sets up between these objects with an inherent potential for interdependence and visible correlation between them.
Museo Reina Sofía presents “Breathing Spell,” Nairy Baghramian’s first solo show in Spain, at Palacio de Cristal.
The sculptures and installations of Nairy Baghramian revise inherited forms and concepts as they address notions such as functionality, abstraction and feminism. With a clear reference to art history and modern architecture, notably Minimalism and Surrealism, the artist calls into question the strain that exists between aspects such as function and ornament, industry and craft, among others. Her sculptures, made of steel, resin, silicone, and leather, often assume organic forms where visible protuberances and recesses in human physiology and subjectivity, as well as interior design and decorative objects, resound.
Nairy Baghramian, Pierre Huyghe and Cerith Wyn Evans participate in this year's Skulptur Projekte Münster, curated by Britta Peters and Kasper König.
