Lehmann Maupin gallery now represents London-based artist Mandy El-Sayegh, whose work with drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation figures in “a complex investigation of the body as a signifier in the context of shared cultural trauma, linguistic entropy, and the endless mutability of meaning itself,” according to a release sent out by the gallery. Lehmann Maupin presented a solo show of her work in New York last fall and will feature her again in Hong Kong in July. El-Sayegh also has a show opening Friday in London at nonprofit space Chisenhale Gallery.
About her move to Lehmann Maupin, El-Sayegh told ARTnews, “I look forward to developing my practice within the gallery’s bold and multifaceted program with the support of their truly stellar team.”
In a statement, Rachel Lehmann said, “Mandy stands out amongst her generation for her intellect and talent, producing extremely relevant work that spans various media but with a cohesive point of view. I knew she would be an excellent fit for our program very early in getting to know her work, and we are looking forward to all that is to come for her.”
