From 9 October, Tate Modern will present the first full retrospective on Sigmar Polke (1941 – 2010), one of the most experimental German artists of recent times and a key figure in the generation who emerged in the 1960s.

Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963 – 2010 will feature unseen work that demonstrates the unusual and wide range of materials with which artist worked, such as antiquated and sometimes poisonous pigments, extracted dye from boiled snails, meteorite powder,  and paintings created by brushing photosensitive chemicals onto canvas.

Viewing all forms of authority with an irreverent attitude and ironic humourPolke explored ideas of contamination and transformation, often confronting the remnants of National Socialism in his imagery while incorporating the radical cultures of the 1970s into both his art and lifestyle.

Five teams from design collective Okay Studio caused a stir at Clerkenwell Design Week with their eclectic mix of designs coined ‘Five’ for the American Hardwood Export Council, who have set a precedent with their festival collaborations.

David Venables, Director of AHEC explained “One key aspect of this project for us is promoting and demonstrating the performance of the material. Out of a single set of materials, have come five very different designs and the teams at Okay Studio have risen to that challenge extremely well and I think we have all learnt more about the versatility of the materials as a result.”

Hunting and Narud worked with the complete range of species – American ash, cherry, hard maple, red oak and tulipwood, on their ‘Apex Tables’ – a series of side tables. Black and blue colour stain match the seat on some of range, whilst others are left natural. Glass reveals the quality of the wood on the hardwood cones and is clear as well as smoked.
