Mostyn, Wales present 2023 programme

2023 program

Mostyn, Wales, has announced their 2023 program. The gallery will host five artists in their first solo institutional shows in the UK, and Mostyn is also happy to be a partner gallery for Artes Mundi 10. Alfredo Cramerotti, Director of Mostyn, and Kalliopi Tsipni-Kolaza, Associate Curator of Visual Arts, curate the program.

Cerith Wyn Evans
Until February 25, 2023

Cerith Wyn Evans, the most highly known and internationally recognized Welsh artist working today, will have a major solo exhibition. Wyn Evans’ work at Mostyn has been centered on the folds and flows of energy through tangible and immaterial conduits, circuitry, and choreology: the art of translating movement into notational form. Intricate neon sculptures examine vision and how we interpret works and their spatial contexts, which are used to build meaning. The visual assemblage displayed in concert throughout the galleries unfolds in a kind of ‘managed randomness,’ in which artworks coexist in a game of intervals and intensities exchanged.

Stefan Brüggemann
March 18–June 17, 2023

The Mexican/German London-based artist Stefan Brüggemann’s first major museum-scale exhibition, spanning painting, works on paper, sculpture, installation, sound, moving image, and his very first special edition of NFTs. Brüggemann’s work employs text in conceptual installations packed with scathing social satire and a post-pop aesthetic, spanning sculpture, video, painting, and drawing. His work is distinguished by an ironic fusion of Conceptualism and Minimalism with a punk attitude. In this regard, Brüggemann’s approach is distinct from the canon of conceptual artists working in the 1960s and 1970s who sought dematerialization and opposed commercialization of art. View from the press: March 17th.

Diane Dal-Pra
July 1–October 7, 2023

The young French artist’s first UK museum exhibition, whose beautiful work both seduces and disturbs the viewer with its confusing composition and details. Dal-large-scale Pra’s figurative paintings blur the line between realism and abstraction, while her geometric compositions of human bodies and objects generate visual tension and mysterious storylines. Each painting is a fresh voyage, with its own length and set of surprises. A solo exhibition from a rising star of contemporary art that promises revelations.

Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum
July 1–October 7, 2023

The Botswana-Canadian artist’s first UK institutional solo exhibition. Sunstrum is a transatlantic diasporic artist who works on 2D and 3D installations, painting, sketching, and animation. This exhibition will offer a mid-career look at her complicated and beautiful multidisciplinary artistic practice. Her art alludes to mythology, geology, and cosmological speculations. The drawings are narrative landscapes that appear both futuristic and old, alternating between representational and imaginative portrayals of volcanic, underground, cosmological, and precipitous environments. Sunstrum’s other major efforts include a 2018 mural that wrapped around the facade of The Showroom in London. The work was dedicated to South African Novelist Bessie Head and formed part of the exhibition titled Women on Aeroplanes, curated by The Otolith Group, Emily Pethick, and Elvira Dyangani Ose.

Oren Pinhassi
July 1–October 7, 2023

The artist’s first UK museum exhibition, presenting a collection of sculptural pieces that address the link between the human figure, nature, and the constructed world. Pinhassi is really interested in how architecture molds and dictates how we do things—how we eat, sleep, have sex, and protect ourselves. His art investigates architecture that is intended to separate bodies, and he wonders what these structures reveal about our aspirations and concerns. He is interested in the boundaries we build to avoid contagion and fear of the Other, as well as how the breakdown of these limits is fundamental to sensual experiences.

Rosemarie Castoro
October 21, 2023–February 24, 2024

The late American master’s first UK institutional solo presentation. The exhibition, which includes painting, work on paper, poetry, wall relief work, and sculptural, floor-based pieces, provides a full view of her wide activity from the 1960s to the present. In 1960s New York, Rosemarie Castoro developed her distinct artistic idiom within the background of Minimalist and Conceptual art. She and then-partner and fellow artist Carl Andre occupied a SoHo apartment, which became a social nexus for creatives such as Lawrence Weiner, Richard Long, and Sol LeWitt. She started affiliated with the New Dance Group while studying graphic design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and later featured in multiple works with noted Minimalist choreographer Yvonne Rainer. Defying easy categorization, Castoro did not like to be classified in categories, she said: “People call me a minimalist, but I consider myself a maxiMUST” and she termed herself a ‘painter sculptor’. Her sculptures are informed by her dancer’s awareness of space, as evidenced by the performative Polaroids she made of herself engaging with them in her studio.
