Pilar Corrias is pleased to announce the representation of New York-based artist, Ghada Amer (b. 1963) The close collaboration with the artist will be inaugurated with an exhibition of new painting and sculpture in London in 2020. Ghada Amer's work addresses first and foremost the ambiguous, transitory nature of the paradox that arises when searching for concrete definitions of east and west, feminine and masculine, art and craft. Through her paintings, sculptures and public garden projects, Amer takes traditional notions of cultural identity, abstraction, and religious fundamentalism and turns them on their heads.

Thousands of cacti in various shapes and colours impose a virtuoso pattern on the ground, a manipulated and sharp reference to the great tradition of western abstract painting this hostile garden is a formidable way of tackling the question of female stereotypes.

Internationally known for her embroidered canvases, Ghada Amer focused in the last years on creating works out of clay. On thin panels, Amer paints with liquefied colored clay or folds them into abstract, colorful sculptures. The exhibition shows the scope of the Amer's work by bringing together her ceramics with a selection of her recent canvases, a steel sculpture and a number of works on paper that are the result of her collaboration with Iranian artist Reza Farkhondeh. Questioning relationships of power by expressing archetypes of gender and sexual representations are always at her work's heart.The exhibition will open in the context of Gallery Weekend Berlin's VIP Preview on April 29 from 11 am. The official opening will be the evening from 6 to 9 pm.
