    Zac Langdon-Pole is currently exhibiting work in the 2016 Fellbach Triennial of Small Sculpture titled FOOD – Ecologies of the Everyday in Fellbach Germany. Curated by Susanne Gaensheimer, Director of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main, FOOD – Ecologies of the Everyday includes more than 40 international artists whose works reflect on the subject of food and the context of it’s production and consumption as paradigmatic, universal examples of social, political, ecological and economic interrelations. 

    The Triennial borrows its title from the still relevant project FOOD run by Gordon Matta-Clark together with fellow artists Carol Goodden, Tina Girouard, Suzanne Harris and Rachel Lew in Lower Manhattan in 1971-1974. The conceptual interest lies on the restaurant as a microsystem mirroring complex broader cultural, social and societal interlacings and cycles by the means of food, eating and nutrition.
    The Triennial will run until 2 October 2016 at the Alte Kelter Fellbach, Untertürkheimer Strasse 33, Germany.

    Ronnie van Hout's five-meter tall sculptural work Quasi has been installed atop the Christchurch Art Gallery. The work comes from a scanning of van Hout's body parts, combining them into a single figure that is surreal, uncanny and humorous. The sculpute refers to the fact that it is a quasi object, neither a full fledged person, nor just a part of a person, and references the notion of "the artist hand" whilst also touching on the fictional Parisian hunchback Quasimodo.

    Quasi will be on display until December 2017

    Daniel Boyd is currently presenting his four channel video installation A Darker Shade of Dark (2012) in The Shadow Never Lies at the Minsheng Art Museum in Shanghai, China. Cruated by Jiang Jiehong and Mark Nash this exhibition features more than 30 international artists from 16 countries and takes its theme from the Chineese word 'Yingxiang' — translated literally as ‘shadow image’.
    In the context of contemporary art, Yingxiang refers to visual media including both still and moving images, such as photography video, film and animation, whether produced through traditional or digital techniques. But here in this exhibtion it is no longer simply a definition of visual media, but a particular concept, a new perspective, through which we re-experience its ‘remoteness’ and ‘ otherness’.
    The exhibition runs until 31 July.

    Laith McGregor is presenting a small group of works in Got it for Cheap, a traveling group show with over 200 participating artists at Gallery Steinsland Berliner, Stockholm. The exhibition is one night only, and the principle is: first come first served! No previews and no early admission. The idea is to create a democratic model where established, up-and-coming and unknown artists can show and sell alongside one another. The price is set at 300 Swedish krona to make the works affordable to people who are normally not able to buy original works as well as encouraging the artists to make quick and loose drawings. The works that are not sold during the shows will revert to their market prices the following day.

    Opening on 20 May, this iteration is the second of three locations that the show will travel to, with it already being exhibited at David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen and soon to show at Agnes B's Gallerie du Jour, Paris.
