Viewing Ekkyklema at Gagosian

Craving an artful winter escape? Jenny Saville’s exhibition, Ekkyklema, gracing London’s Davies Street gallery symbolises her quest for a visual language that navigates our dual existence in material and screen-centric realms—a universal theme encapsulating the moment and enigma of conception.

Inspired by colossal digital screens at major venues, Saville dissects body parts into angular, panels, echoing desktop interfaces and news broadcasts. Over the past year, she has refined this system, merging figuration and abstraction to capture our interwoven physical and electronic realities. The reclining figures resonating Picasso’s fragmented portraits reference the Greek myth of Danaë, with a palette drawn from watercolour studies of the Greek sky at sunset.
