21/12/2020

Installation views of León Ferrari’s exhibition “The Kind Cruelty” in the Sabatini Building of the Reina Sofía Museum - on view until April 12, 2021.

“The Kind Cruelty invites the visitor to understand León Ferrari’s oeuvre as “a deconstruction of the pedagogies of violence propagated by the bellicose and religious array of Western history”, in the words of the curators. Ferrari’s legacy makes up a broad repertoire of works that explore a display of materials and languages to examine irreverent forms of assembling and dismantling visual and discursive power rhetoric, be it political, religious or in the media.

The artist’s work, moreover, shuns traditional art-world categories; hence one of the main strands of the show evincing how the work León Ferrari produced in the 1960s — his initial drawings, collages and watercolors, wire sculptures and his engagement with writing and poetry — reveals an early area of exploration in which formal experimentation, poetics, concepts and politics combine. Thus, the exhibition surveys a dismantling of the binary distinction between an abstract phase and political phase in Ferrari’s work, with the two poles actively and singularly present through his career.“ -museoreinasofia.es

Studio Visit bei Henrike Naumann für C/O Vienna Magazine.

"Meine Rolle als Künstlerin sehe ich nicht darin, mir etwas ganz Neues auszudenken, sondern zu versuchen, aus dem, was da ist, einen Sinn zu destillieren, eine neue Bedeutung oder andere Zusammenhänge zu schaffen. Ich habe im vergangenen halben Lockdown-Jahr viel bewusster reflektiert, wie ich eigentlich arbeite, weil ich das erste Mal in meiner künstlerischen Laufbahn über Monate nur im Studio saß und viel allein entwickelt habe."

OPENING TODAY

Hiwa K’s solo exhibition “Do you remember what you are burning?” at Jameel Arts Centre Dubai is opening today. On view until July 24.

“Hiwa K blends humor with personal experience to produce a cohesive body of work that at once speaks to contemporary experiences of displacement, belonging and resilience while at the same time producing a highly personal portrait of the artist’s life experiences. Many of the works relate to the artist’s home city of Sulaymaniyah, in Iraqi Kurdistan, and his experiences of fleeing in refuge and returning many years later. Based ‘on his feet’ Hiwa K often inserts himself into situations of uncertainty, occupying the productive space of the amateur, or the ‘learner’, to query dominant forms of knowledge and the infallibility of academic ways of knowing.

Bringing together works spanning over 10 years of the artist’s practice, this is Hiwa K’s first solo exhibition in Asia and the Middle East, and includes the outdoor installation, One Room Apartment, originally commissioned for Documenta 14 (2017), and a new, interactive large-scale commission.

‘Hiwa K: Do you remember what you are burning?’ is conceived as a three-venue collaboration with Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin and The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto and the artist Hiwa K.” - jameelartscentre.org

OPENING TOMORROW

León Ferrari’s retrospective exhibition “The Kind Cruelty” is opening tomorrow in the Sabatini Building of the Reina Sofía Museum - on view until April 12, 2021.

“The project The Kind Cruelty, 100 Years aims to shine a light on the work of León Ferrari (Buenos Aires, 1920–2013) in Europe and preserve part of his heritage across three European institutions by dint of a far-reaching and pedagogical vision fostering the contextualisation and dissemination of his legacy on the hundredth anniversary of his birth. The project stems from an agreement reached between Fundación Augusto y León Ferrari Arte y Acervo (FALFAA, Buenos Aires) and Museo Reina Sofía and, together with the exhibition, reflects a donation of 15 original works and the production of 219 single copies of the artist’s objects and series, to become part of the Museo Reina Sofía Collection.  
Ferrari’s legacy makes up a broad repertoire of works that explore an array of materials and languages to examine irreverent forms of assembling and dismantling visual and discursive power rhetoric, be it political, religious or in the media. 
The artist’s work, moreover, shuns traditional art-world categories; hence one of the main strands of the show evincing how the work León Ferrari produced in the 1960s — his initial drawings, collages and watercolours, wire sculptures and his engagement with writing and poetry — reveals an early area of exploration in which formal experimentation, poetics, concepts and politics combine. Thus, the exhibition surveys a dismantling of the binary distinction between an abstract phase and political phase in Ferrari’s work, with the two poles actively and singularly present across his career arc.” -museoreinasofia.es

Three “Low Reliefs” by Marco A. Castillo are currently on view in the KOW showroom.

“This body of work designates a series of cardboards, which the artist carved into. Cutting through piles and into the various layers of paper, Castillo creates geometric drawings made of bas-reliefs using the physicality of the support to give the composition depth, layering and symmetry.
The pieces evoke architectural elements, and capture a historic endeavor for modernist, utopian and high-minded aesthetics through its razor-sharp lines and perfectly geometric designs.”

Mario Pfeifer’s “Corpo Fechado” (2016) is featured in the International Photography Festival Belo Horizonte Brasil.

Streaming via www.2020.fif.art.br until December 12.

“Corpo Fechado is 4K Video Installation produced in São Paulo, Brazil, focussing on societal conditions in relation to spiritual and religious practices in the megapolis. 
Constructed in three episodes and three interludes the video introduces the practices of Christavao Chrystal, Tata Katuvengeci and Makumba Cyber. The episodes are interconnected through interludes that introduce sites of production of religious objects. Here chain and hand-produced objects are manufactured and distributed globally for believers of all major religions, on the junction of labour, market and faith.”

“FIF – Belo Horizonte’s International Festival of Photography is a biennial cultural initiative, which seeks to promote the dialogue among the photographic production from different countries, as well as to advance the encounter between photography and other means of creative expression.
Focused on the photographic universe associated with the research and the practices in the field of visual poetics, the Festival seeks to investigate creative processes which explore photography as a potential element of the poetic speech and its intersection with other media, for the production of knowledge.
The proposal for FIF BH 2020 is to reflect how the images can collaborate for the understanding of different cultures and the richness of multiple forms of life. Each image brings with it a culture, a way of thinking and perceiving the world with its challenges and ways of dealing with the issues we live in.” - fif.art.br

LIVE TODAY // 28.11

For Franz Erhard Walther’s retrospective exhibition „Shifting Perspectives“, Haus der Kunst München is hosting a one-day streaming festival - live feed and programme at www.hausderkunst.de

“Live activations of historical works, an artist talk, interviews with collaborators, and two panel discussions with scholars and curators will explore the historical and contemporary relevance of his work.
Walther lets the viewers become protagonists and their actions become images. In doing so, he has become a reference for an entire generation of contemporary performative artists who declare the body to be their material and create situation-related, action-oriented, and ephemeral works of a pictorial character.
The focus is on Walther’s role as a key figure in the conceptual departure from the image and his promotion of a substantially expanded understanding of the image since the European post-war period. To what extent does Walther’s lifelong reconciliation of the purported antipodes of object and body juxtapose art with life, and does he succeed in creating spheres of circulation?
[...]
The ‘Shifting Perspectives’ Streaming Festival is intended to open up diverse perspectives on Walther’s artistic practice, which lend clarity to his media reflections of historical significance and make a future-oriented reading of his work possible.“ -HDK

Sophie Gogl’s “Anna” (2019) in the group exhibition “No Dandy, No Fun” at Kunsthalle Bern - on view until January 17.

With Kai Althoff, Lutz Bacher, Kévin Blinderman / Pierre-Alexandre Mateos / Charles Teyssou, Marcel Broodthaers, Ursula Böckler, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Hanne Darboven, Stephan Dillemuth, Victoire Douniama, Lukas Duwenhögger, Cerith Wyn Evans, Sylvie Fleury, Andrea Fraser, Gogo Graham, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys, David Hammons, Birgit Jürgenssen, K Foundation, John Kelsey, Michael Krebber, Miriam Laura Leonardi, David Lieske, Mathieu Malouf, Ulrike Ottinger, Mathias Poledna, Raymond Roussel, Heji Shin, Reena Spaulings, Sturtevant, Bernadette Van-Huy, James McNeill Whistler and Virginia Woolf.

“The antiquated image of the dandy, of the man in the finely cut suit gazing impassively upon the world while sipping a glass of champagne, seems out of date today. But the attitude concealed behind this image has come to seem promising again. World views centered solely upon themselves go into ecstasies trying to persuade us to believe in their own identity over all others. A dandy, by contrast, allows himself the luxury of having no opinions and remaining without any fixed qualities of his own. Instead of tending to his subjective emotional world, and letting himself be manipulated by its reactions, he coldly regards himself as a malleable object, and rejects any notions of (self) certainty in order to become someone, or even something, artificial.

No Dandy No Fun traces the transformations of this model from the nineteenth century to the present, showing different facets of its multiple biography. This developmental history of a conceptual character is told through a series of snapshots that make no claim to being comprehensive. And how could they, given that the complex figure of the dandy spreads before us like a vast ocean, whose horizon our confounded eyes strain to see. Many of those who appear in the exhibition were not considered dandies up until now. They are examples of how the manifestations of a certain ‚type‘ might be further conceptually developed through other bodies.”

Chto Delat’s “One Night in A Social Network” is currently on view during our online exhibition.
The film can be viewed in full length on our website until December 4.

“It looks like we’re living in the time of an emotional turn. What is truth and what isn’t depends no longer on the possibility of reasoning but instead on the heavy emotional impact of communication.
We see the basis for this turn in the changes of the language of communication—in the appearance of the culture of emoji and GIF animations in our everyday interactions. These ideograms are typically used on social networks and in private online communication. Emoji exist in various genres, including facial expressions, common objects, places, kinds of weather, and animals as well as many others forms and media.
Our film shows a room with a table at the center. A lonely individual is deeply immersed in reading his social media feed and following various links. A group of performers are arrayed in front of him: four recognizable emoji who communicate with him and permanently construct and manipulate the news content. Under the table is the typical Russian troll character, who throws in his own comments and chooses this or that content.
The action starts when the user receives information about the killing of Arkadiy Babchenko—a now-notorious Russian journalist who lived in exile in Ukraine. Aided by the troll and emoji, the user starts following the case and delving headlong into the surreal world of post-truth. The journey ends in the morning, when the news arrives that Babchenko has been resurrected: his death was staged in a special operation by a security agency.”

Chto Delat, Hiwa K, Henrike Naumann, Mario Pfeifer and Santiago Sierra in the group exhibition “Time for Outrage!” at Kunstpalast Düsseldorf.

“Anger and rage are among our most intense emotions. Many consider them dangerous; others would like to make them socially acceptable. Current international events show how strongly they shape discussions about our social interactions: conspiracy theories, racially motivated violence, extremist terror, or “fake news” are just a few of the worrying consequences of populist power politics that fuel fears and focus on polarisation and exclusion. This is countered by worldwide protests against totalitarian structures, the oppression of minorities, and the deepening of social divisions in society. In a number of countries, democracy appears to be in crisis and many people are increasingly in a state of turmoil.

The exhibition Time for Outrage! is based on the eponymous 2010 essay by French resistance fighter Stéphane Hessel and brings together some forty international artists who visualise, reflect, and comment on various facets of anger and rage in our society. Their works deal with socio-political situations and inspire reflection.” - kunstpalast.de

The exhibition is curated by Linda Peitz and Florian Peters-Messer.
