Perrotin is pleased to return to Frieze New York with a selection of new sculptures by Daniel Arsham, Bharti Kher, Takashi Murakami, and Paola Pivi, alongside new paintings by Cristina BanBan, Zach Harris, and Claire Tabouret.
In the center of Perrotin's booth will be Paola Pivi's It's me, a nod to her concurrent public installation on The High Line in New York, titled You know who I am, which is a scale replica of the Statue of Liberty. Pivi's High Line installation features a set of rotating masks, each a stylized portrait of an individual whose personal experience of freedom is directly connected to the United States, and, at Frieze, It's me will showcase a stagnant mask is of Pivi's adopted son who had his own battle with citizenship.
Nearby, Takashi Murakami will also debut two new artworks, ahead of his expansive exhibition at The Broad in Los Angeles, Takashi Murakami: Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow, on view May 21 through September 25. Both works will feature the artist's signature flower motif. Derived from his studies of Nihonga painting, the flower outwardly signifies peace and happiness while inwardly evoking repressed emotions experienced by the Japanese as a result of 1940s historical trauma.
Additionally, the booth includes Brooklyn-based Cristina BanBan’s painting The Three Graces, showcasing a new style for the artist that favors a gestural language to explore the female form, which she unveiled in a concurrent exhibition at Perrotin Paris, on view through May 28.
Finally, the gallery is excited to showcase a new painting by Nikki Maloof, marking our first collaboration with the female artist. Maloof’s psychologically charged still lifes often depict dejected aspects of domesticity. Here, she juxtaposes dismembered fish and sliced fruit against rich, undulating wall patterns, producing a quality of solemnity and strangeness.
The gallery will also present a curated selection of work by Iván Argote, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Thilo Heinzmann, Leslie Hewitt, Gregor HIldebrandt, JR, Izumi Kato, Klara Kristalova, Gabriel Rico, Danielle Orchard, Jean-Michel Othoniel, and Kathia St. Hilaire.
