Moral Dilemma of a Confused Mind, 2016
Acrylic on canvas, 152 x 122 cm / 59 7/8 x 48 in

Hauser & Wirth Somerset is pleased to announce a new solo exhibition by Djordje Ozbolt, following the artist’s residency with the gallery in 2016, at The Maltings Studios in Bruton. ‘Brave New World’ introduces an entirely new body of work conceived during Ozbolt’s residency, and the show’s title takes its name from the 1932 science fiction classic by Aldous Huxley. It is also a reminder of the renowned line uttered by Miranda in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, ‘O brave new world, that has such people in’t!’ – with both references rousing feelings of nostalgia and wonderment.

In Ozbolt’s ‘Brave New World’, the visitor is sent on a journey in which they encounter a variety of landscapes populated by myriad characters and rituals, passing from one zone to the next as though on a quest for divine inspiration. Ozbolt himself is an avid traveller, whose work irreverently borrows from a plethora of cultures, traditions, and curiosities, inviting viewers to look afresh at each reference. This exhibition reflects Ozbolt’s ongoing interest in combining canonical art historical motifs with cartoon imagery and kitsch, using a wide range of techniques including painting on canvas, casting in resin, sourcing ready-mades from the Internet and sculpting with remnants from the studio.

An exhibition focused on Henry Moore’s early drawings and etchings inspired by, or relating to, poetry and myth. Including poetry magazine covers, illustrations for poems by Herbert Read and sketches of the Prometheus myth, the presentation explores the graphic side of Moore’s practice and illuminates his interest in sculptural mythology. It is curated by the artist’s daughter, Mary Moore.
