London's galleries refresh their walls with exciting new exhibitions this autumn.
Opening on the 13th of October, Savil Row's Luxembourg & Dayan will host to the complete works from an entire single-owner collection dedicated exclusively to Boetti.
Featuring over sixty works that date between 1965 and 1989, the exhibition is a mini retrospective of one of the most influential Italian artists of the twentieth century. On show will be rare and important works that celebrate the diversity of Boetti’s oeuvre including: Mimetico (Camouflage), Lampada Annuale (Annual Light), both 1967; Dama (Checkerboard), 1969; Lavoro Postale (Postal Work), 1973; and many more. Viewing the works as an ensemble will present an opportunity to enter the mind-set of this unique collector, who for the past twenty years has rigorously honed this collection in order to fully encompass each nuance of the artist’s distinct philosophy.
Saatchi Gallery will also open its doors to Japanese collectives next week as part of the START Art Fair.
Kicking off from the 10th of September, the exhibitions highlights are Chim Pom who will be making their first solo debut at the art fair. Their exhibition "Super Rat", involved the collective capturing and stuffing several large rats that browse through garbage in the alleys of Shibuya, Tokyo's teeming youth-culture mecca. Chim Pom arranged the animals in poses reminiscent of the Pokemon anime character Pikachu.
Another Japanese collective making their UK debut at the fair is the 'ultra-technologist' group teamLab whose gorgeous, immersive installations have taken Tokyo by storm.
The collective that makes digital, interactive pastorals - blooms and flowers that respond to the viewers' movements, is Asia's biggest arts collective with 500+ members. Next week the collective will be exhibition the immersive environment Flutter of Butterflies beyond Borders.
