It is a pleasure to announce that Nobuko Tsuchiya is now represented by Gregor Podnar. We are delighted to be the host of Tsuchiya’s first Berlin solo exhibition. Gregor Podnar is pleased to present a collection of recent and new sculptural works with Nobuko Tsuchiya joining us in Berlin to create and adapt works especially for ,,,. The exhibition is in collaboration with Anthony Reynolds, London and SCAI The Bathhouse, Tokyo. With her intuitive use of materials, Tsuchiya builds delicate elements and layers that become part of the landscape that make up the entirety of an individual sculptural work. Tsuchiya’s visual language reflects her intense understanding of the characteristics of different materials. In her work she approaches the parameters of their physical limitations to create the sensitive and challenging sculptural works. Tsuchiya precisely transforms ubiquitous objects and detritus materials into curious microcosms. Each fragment of her uninhibited and instinctive assemblages – every material surface, component and form – are in poetic dialogue with one another and the surrounding environment.

Nobuko Tsuchiya (born in Yokohama, Japan) lives and works in Japan. Her education brought her to Europe in 1994 where she studied art at Accademia delle Belle Arti di Firenze, Florence before resuming studies at Goldsmith’s College and the Royal Academy, London. Galleries representing Tsuchiya, Anthony Reynolds, London and SCAI The Bathhouse, Tokyo have held several solo exhibitions of her works. Tsuchiya has also been selected for numerable exhibitions at international art institutions and museums, including, 50th Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy (2003); Saatchi Gallery, London, UK (2004); New Museum, New York, USA (2007); Busan Biennale, South Korea (2016); Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan (2019); and Yorkshire Sculpture International, Leeds City Art Gallery, Leeds, UK (2019) amongst others.

Gregor Podnar is delighted to present a manifestation of William Engelen’s solo exhibition ‘Heute hat die Orgel wieder schön gespielt’ [Today, the organ has played beautifully again] (2018), originally exhibited at Kunsthalle Osnabrück. This is the first exhibition at the gallery by the Berlin-based artist who navigates the spectrum between visual and musical expressions. Engelen adopts strategies from visual art to extend the boundaries of musical compositions. Written scores, concert-like performances, filmic documentations, sound recordings and releases are the product of his amalgamations of sound and image. His compositions are written by his visual response to an environment, ranging from museum and gallery spaces, churches and construction sites. Subsequently, a distinct factor of Engelen’s artistic practice embodies methods of acoustic interpretation through his collaborations with musicians. Engelen’s nonconformist musical scores embrace drawing techniques that structure their own melodic rationale and the performances that result are a communitarian exchange of the different variables established by the artist.

William Engelen (b. 1964, Weert, The Netherlands) lives and works in Berlin. Engelen has exhibited substantially within Germany with significant recent solo exhibitions held at Kunsthalle Osnabrück (2018) and Kunsthalle Mannheim (2019). His work has also been selected for several group exhibitions at internationally renowned institutions including, Documenta, Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel, Germany (2005); Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2008); National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo, Norway (2012); Cartagena de Indias Biennial, Columbia (2014); and Akademie der Künste, Berlin, Germany (2016) amongst others. His work is also included in several public collections throughout Europe.
