Posted January 28, 2013 in Events

Art Fairs London Ltd is a new art fair for London, showcasing the best in international Modern and Contemporary Art. Sponsored by Citi Private Bank, Art13 London will be truly global, bringing together over 120 galleries from 29 countries around the world.

Art13’s commitment to showcase works by established and emerging international artists is complemented by the diverse line-up of the 20 projects that will feature throughout the Fair. Visitors can discover installations by artists from Asia, the Middle East and Africa as well as the West, and the range of media employed in these works will enhance the multi-sensory experience of visiting the Fair.

Eastern European sculptural practice is seen in Hungarian artist Szilárd Cseke’s Deep Look (2012) which features a spinning neon light inside a tower of tyres and Lithuanian artist Žilvinas Kempinas’s kinetic sculpture Fountain (2011), in which a fan rotates disturbing a minimalist array of black tape on the floor. Everyday materials are reconfigured into witty and epic sculptural forms by Scottish artist Mhairi Vari and Indonesian artist Handiwirman Saputra. Vari’s coreropememory (2013) is made from a profusion of silk ties whilst Saputra’s Tak Berakar, Tak Berpucuk – no.7 (No Roots, No Shoots – no.7), (2011) repurposes plywood and corrugated roofing for the enormous sculptures which seek to challenge the relationship between the extraordinary and the mundane.

Suzanne Gyorgy, Managing Director, Citi Private Bank Art Advisory & Finance said, “We’re excited about the range of Fair Projects at Art13 London. The variety of territories represented and the sizeable number of emerging artists from areas of growth markets very much illustrates the global vision that the Fair is committed to and is consistent with Citi Private Bank’s own international perspective.”
