Derek Fordjour: Fly Away

At the center of the presentation, Petzel showcases Derek Fordjour’s new film “Fly Away”. In conjunction with his exhibition "SELF MUST DIE" at Petzel in November/December 2020, Fordjour co-created a puppet performance with puppeteer and theater artist, Nick Lehane. The performance, titled "FLY AWAY", follows a man whose name we never know as he navigates through his life. We follow his quest for mastery along a series of fateful encounters and a cycle of wins and losses leads him to profound confrontation, raising questions of autonomy, control, and independence. The performance is now a film, available in an edition of 5.

Petzel brings together new and historical works by over twenty of its artists, complementing international exhibitions as well as the gallery’s upcoming expansion in New York. New examples preview a diverse survey of contemporary painting by recent additions Joe Bradley, Rodney McMillian, Pieter Schoolwerth, Emily Mae Smith, and Xie Nanxing. Following Jorge Pardo’s eleventh solo show with the gallery of paintings, couches, and a monumental lamp, Petzel spotlights a set of five glass lamps, one of the artist’s signature works that balances sculptural form and everyday function. Heimo Zobernig’s bronze mannequin alongside one of Cosima von Bonin’s classic neon lamps expand the gallery’s dialogue in sculpture. New paintings by pillars of the roster include Sean Lander’s investigation of language within seascapes and wildlife, Sarah Morris’ precisionist and architectural compositions, and Hiroki Tsukuda’s bionic and dystopic portraits.
