Kiki Kogelnik: Riot of Objects / Athena Papadopoulos: Cain and Abel Can’t and Able @ MOSTYN Gallery, Llandudno 

In 1961, Austrian Kiki Kogelnik left behind the Viennese avant-garde scene, trading it for Santa Monica. In the US, she was influenced by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Robert Rauschenberg and Claes Oldenburg. Responding to this male-dominated world, she introduced feminism and criticality to the already fertile ground of mass media and consumer culture, becoming an interesting (and underexposed) outlier of pop art in the process. This MOSTYN Gallery show is the first in the UK to focus solely on her ceramics output. Dovetailing nicely is a new body of work from Canadian artist Athena Papadopoulos, which questions traditional binary perceptions of gender and sexuality.

Drawing from the biblical story of Cain and Able, Papadopoulos reflects on her own personal experiences of sibling rivalry and competition within romantic relationships but also, crucially, the struggle between good and evil.

After moving to New York in the early 1960s, the Austrian-born artist emerged as one of the few women associated with the Pop art movement. She is perhaps best known for her series of Hangings: life-size tracings, cut-outs and paintings of human figures. But from 1974 ceramics became a key part of her practice. This is the first UK exhibition to focus on her work in this medium, by turns fantastical and darkly comic.
