Mike Nelson

'Measure' at Middlesbrough Art Week 2023 and 'All Crescendo, No Reward' at Zabludowicz Collection

Two shows featuring Mike Nelson’s work are now open.

Mike Nelson is exhibiting during Middlesbrough Art Week 2023 at The Auxiliary Project Space a version of one of his early fire encampment assemblages, Amnesiac Beach Fire, 1997 (remade 2023).

Amnesiac Beach Fire is built from the remains of a burnt-out beach fire. An archaeology of the unremarkable, it would seem, but the addition of flames from a wave-battered traffic cone compounds the mute representation of this primal moment in human development: the creation of fire. This is an object that depicts, but that does not deliver, light or heat.

Middlesbrough, TS1 1SR

The show runs from 28 September 2023 to 07 October 2023.

All Crescendo, No Reward is an exhibition of works from the Zabludowicz Collection that explores the formation and re-formation of subjecthood and objecthood. The notion of ‘the loop’ is central to the show, with the circulation of images and ideas felt across the exhibition. Contained within the narratives and imagery of the works is a constant flux between desire and the frustration of that desire.

The show runs from 28 September 2023 to 17 December 2023.
