The exhibition at Rivoli, curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Marianna Vecellio, reflects on the combination of tangibility and absence found in the phantasmagoric dimension of the venue: an ancient castle “under a spell”, perhaps inhabited by ghosts, where such a material intangibility seems to be rendered by the artist via the reality of HD and the digital realm. In contrast, the contemporary architecture of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo hosts the artist’s most recent work, Safe Conduct (2016), a three-channel video-installation whose images incorporate footage of airports that show travelers the procedure to follow in order to pass security checks. In addition to the video-installation, a series of new graphic works related to Safe Conduct is on view in the foundation’s spaces.

For Standby Mice Station, with the full alliterative force of his deliberately nonsensical title, the artist has imagined just such an ensemble of new sculptures and images, the latter fashioned in that anachronistic technique of wood marquetry (mostly bygone in art, now more known in the realm of furniture making). at Kunsthalle Basel
In Paul Mpagi Sepuya’s photographs, the history of the medium of photography studio portraiture forms the background for his exploration of the dynamics of intimacy. The figures populating Sepuya’s photographs are people with whom he is close: friends, lovers, or members of the queer and artistic communities of Los Angeles and New York of which he is a part. at Modern Art, London
