Marking a highlight of London’s busy arts calendar this October, Maddox Gallery are pleased to announce a collaboration with prestigious member’s club Annabel’s to showcase a series of bronze sculptures by Joseph Klibansky throughout the building’s opulent rooms. The installation will be on display for members to explore from 14th until the 29th October, celebrating culture and creativity in the heart of London’s most iconic member’s club.

"Installed throughout the iconic Annabel’s, Joseph Klibansky’s work creates a juxtaposition between symbol and association that is now presented on a scale never before experienced by fans of Klibansky’s work. We are honoured to be working with Annabel’s and inviting their members to enjoy these artworks this month." Jay Rutland, Creative Director of Maddox Gallery commented.

Klibansky (born in Cape Town, 1984), is an emerging artist who has exhibited internationally from LA to Venice, exploring ideas of perception, appearance and reality. Using iconographic and pop culture vernacular, Klibansky's work questions the surface value of his subject matter, exploring the bleak and melancholic through a seemingly utopian lens. His series of bronze animal works on display at Annabel’s are a playful juxtaposition between symbol and association, and include works such Big Bang (2016) which fuse technology with traditional artistic technique.

Klibansky added “Annabel’s is a beautiful environment, like a handmade art piece in itself. My dream is for Members and their guests to take time discovering these sculptures throughout the Club and enjoy the journey of this collaboration.”

The luxurious Club at 46 Berkeley Square will invite members to discover Klibansky’s unique works outside of a gallery space for the first time. The dynamism, movement and colours of Annabel’s’ distinctive interior act as a natural habitat for Klibansky’s perfectly polished animal kingdom – with works such as Reflections of Truth and Beautiful Tomorrow complementing the opulent tropical aesthetic of the space. Guests are greeted by Klibansky’s White Universe – a gilded astronaut in a meditative pose in the reception as they arrive, and will discover six further large scape gilded works ensconced throughout the building, from Bare Hug in the lush garden room to Baby We Made It in the decorative club rooms – complementing the building’s jungle-inspired interiors.

Continuing Annabel’s legacy for celebrating creativity, fine art and opulence since its foundation in 1963, the partnership with Maddox Gallery toasts the Club’s creative heritage with a look to the future, presenting one of the most exciting emerging artists from Europe to their members this October.
