Christopher Wool’s Birds Lead Phillips Inaugural Sale at Berkeley Square
16/10/2014
LONDON — A large-scale Christopher Wool painting fetched the top price at the inaugural auction by Phillips at its new London headquarters building in Berkeley Square. Phillips benefitted from Frieze Week after moving into the center of the British capital, closer to the other auction houses and main galleries of Mayfair. Its former base was next to a mail office to the south near Victoria Station. The new location is likely to attract more wealthy collectors who do not need a taxi ride to get to the salesroom. Phillips, owned by Moscow-based Mercury Group, opened its new building shortly after it got a new chairman and chief executive, Edward Dolman. Wool’s “Untitled,” a 1990 alkyd and acrylic work on aluminum featuring black eagle-like birds, sold for £2.1 million, alongside an estimate of £1.8 million to £2.2 million. The painting, 95 inches tall, is one of a series of images that Wool made using designs such as wrought-iron gates, birds, and rudimental human forms. “Untitled (Fold)” by Tauba Auerbach, painted four years ago, also sold for six figures, setting a personal auction record. The acrylic-on-canvas abstract, with a gentle relief over the pale surface, fetched £1.1 million after being estimated at £800,000 to £1.2 million. Still, works that went unsold in the 46-lot, £14.9 million auction included Andy Warhol’s “Guns,” the dark “Four Marilyns,” and “Untitled (The Ambassador’s Wife),” and Gerhard Richter’s “U.L.,” dating from 1985 and estimated at as much as £2 million. Richter’s “Netz” failed to sell in Christie’s London auction on October 13 and later told privately. The Phillips sale rate was about 80 percent and its total low estimate was about £15.5 million. One of the most dramatic works was by British graffiti artist Banksy. “Submerged Phone Booth” from 2006 is a red telephone shelter which apparently sinks into the ground. The work fetched £722,500, beating an upper estimate of £500,000. Works by Jeff Koons in demand included his “Jim Beam – Observation Car,” dating from 1986. The detailed stainless-steel model of a bourbon-filled train carriage is part of his series “Luxury and Degradation,” showing what lengths drinks manufacturers and large corporations go to promote their products. It made £962,500, against an upper estimate of £1.2 million. Another Koons work, “Stay in Tonight,” also dating from 1986 and inspired by a liqueur advert, was knocked down for £386,500, below the upper estimate of £600,000. A large-scale and instantly recognizable Damien Hirst spot painting, “5-Fluorotryptamine,” dating from 2007, was estimated between £550,000 and £650,000 and sold for £578,500. The week also includes the Frieze Art Fair, where works by Pablo Picasso, Sigmar Polke, and Hirst were among early reported sales.There are also auctions by Christie’s (tomorrow), and Sotheby’s and Bonhams (Friday). Christie’s kicked off the week with its £46.9 million auction of 43 works from the Essl Collection, which it said was London’s most valuable auction ever of a private post-war and contemporary art collection.

Tim Noble Steps Out On His Own in London
15/10/2014
Tim Noble Steps Out On His Own in LondonWith his wife and collaborator Sue Webster, Tim Noble is known for inventive sculptures that often cast unexpected shadows — like a contorted assemblage of banana-yellow penises that, on the wall, reads as a much more refined double silhouette of two faces. For Frieze Week, Noble is going solo, presenting a new sculpture that he made sans Webster at The Door (an always-open-to-the-public space described as “literally a doorway on Ingestre Place, Soho, which will rotate its exhibitions on a monthly basis”). The piece is called “Half Cast,” and it depicts a single human body composed of the top half of Webster and the bottom half of Noble. The figure’s head is obscured by a bag; the male-female hybrid wears a T-shirt emblazoned with the word S.C.U.M. (which is not an insult, but rather the name of a defunct London band that Webster and Noble have directed videos for). Noble described his marital art-making practice as being “about two opposite forces working together. In many ways I needed steering in a certain direction, and so did Sue.” (He was quick to point out that the duo is still actively a duo, and that they have an exhibition of paintings on view this November at the Suzanne Geiss Company in New York.) Of “Half Cast” itself, Noble explained: “This is not so much a portrait of my wife... this is more an encounter, with something strangely familiar, a double dose with a twist. As the name suggests, it serves you up two halves of an inseparable relationship that have been torn apart and somehow stitched back together in a brief, suspended marriage to form a bastard child.” Perhaps a Freudian might read something amiss in the sculpture — the aggressive invective of S.C.U.M., that paper bag — but Noble insists there’s nothing of the sort at play. “The paper bag on her head is on no way a malicious attack,” he clarified. “It references the American conceptual artist John Baldessari, who realized the power of covering the face, and of how the mind is disturbed by trying to fill in the missing bits.” Noble is especially taken by The Door’s public, 24/7 access. “The fact that you can be walking through Soho any hour of the day or night and come across this piece makes it a very unique space,” he said. “I believe this is London’s smallest gallery — and behind The Door is The Society Club: a bizarre, lawless bookshop, cocktail bar, and home to an assortment of five dogs.” “Half Cast” will be on view at The Door in London from October 16 through November 18.
