About ‘Isa Genzken. Wasserspeier and Angels’ 
On view is a revival of Isa Genzken’s expansive installation ‘Wasserspeier and Angels’ (2004), marking 20 years since it was displayed in Genzken’s first major solo exhibition in London, UK. Originally responding to Hauser & Wirth’s former historic space in Piccadilly in 2004, the representation of Genzken’s complex assemblage in the city brings her work into a contemporary context, confronting sociopolitical themes that are still relevant today.

About ‘Harmony Korine. AGGRESSIVE DR1FTER Part II’
Over the last 30 years, American artist and filmmaker Harmony Korine has cultivated a multidisciplinary practice built upon tireless experimentation. A second chapter to Korine’s 2023 exhibition, ‘AGGRESSIVE DR1FTER,’ at Hauser & Wirth Downtown Los Angeles, this presentation in London features a series of paintings drawn from his newly released film ‘Aggro Dr1ft,’ which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2023 and was notably shot using infrared cameras. The exhibition’s acid-hued oils display an unprecedented fusion of Korine's painting and filmic practices. These hallucinatory works, like his films, blur the boundaries between ‘high’ and ‘low’ in ways that simultaneously attract and repel viewers with their hypnotic, otherworldly atmosphere.

Both exhibitions will be on view through Saturday 27 July 2024.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
