Excerpt:
Episode 1/3: I’m not a robot
A dialogue between Max Frisch and the AI GPT-3

Do you also collect art? Is nature a friend? What would you not do for money? How can we test "real" intelligence?

With Artificial Intelligence already winning Jeopardy and Go games, are there questions we can ask to distinguish humans from AI? In the 70s, the Swiss writer Max Frisch asks questions for humanity. Half a century later, 𝘬𝘦𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘥𝘺+𝘴𝘸𝘢𝘯 let the AI speech generator GPT-3 answer 13 of them, with an uncertain outcome. The algorithm suggests deep understanding for emotional as well as ethically challenging questions, and in the process delivers surprisingly human insights.

𝘬𝘦𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘥𝘺+𝘴𝘸𝘢𝘯 respond to the artificial answers with intuitive film sequences, thus creating a stereoscopic episode that links different eras and systems of consciousness. The questions are accompanied by visual IQ puzzles that put our mental skills to the test.

AAA is so pleased to share a selection of installation images of Rodel Tapaya's () current solo presentation "Animals Moved by Music" at Yavuz Gallery () in Sydney. On view until the 3rd of December.⁠

Celebrated as one of the most important painters in Southeast Asia, Filipino artist Tapaya is known for his large-scale canvases, narrative murals and sculptural installations that evoke the primordial rainforests of indigenous folklore as allegories for the present reality.

By forming thought-provoking instantiations of myth and contemporary existence—such as beastly incarnations of gods beside factories and television antennas—his works are both a retelling and a continuation of the oral and pictorial worlds of bygone eras.

IN FOCUS: JUMALDI ALFI ()
Born 1972 in Lintau, West Sumatra, Indonesia. Lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Jumaldi Alfi’s practice works sequentially on a set of ideas and themes. Common among these series is the urge for immediacy through the act of drawing, marking and scribbling applied over variations of scapes, clued by way of elemental aspects such as foreground, horizon and depth.

In this work a landscape is taped against a dark backdrop inscribed with cryptic, handwritten words. "Re-Reading Landscape – Dear Painter, Paint For Me #0420" is part of Jumaldi Alfi’s ongoing, critical investigations of how nature scenes in Indonesia had been portrayed during the Dutch colonial era, and the enduring effects of the Mooi Indie phase in Indonesia’s art history.

Mooi Indie (Beautiful Indies) artists portrayed tropical landscapes in the Dutch East Indies as romantic and picturesque—a genre that has since been contested for continuing the colonial agenda of exoticising the archipelago and whitewashing darker social realities in the country. Yet, despite having rooted in the colonial era, these idyllic depictions of Indonesia still emerge in contemporary art today. As he recontextualises the photograph and asserts his artistic hand, Alfi communicates a poignant reality: that as long as the dominant colonial narrative persists to be centred, invaluable voices remain hidden and lost in history.

AAA RECOMMENDS: Ayumi Paul () "The Singing Project" that runs until the 22nd of January 2023 at the Gropius Bau () in Berlin.

Conceived as a collaborative practice and singing sculpture, this project has unfolded in many fluid forms at the Gropius Bau and is now taking on a new spatial form in a freely accessible space on the first floor of the building: arranged as an open score, five rooms hold space for continuous possibilities to sing together, surrounded by displayed excerpts from Paul’s growing archive.

A violinist, composer and artist, Ayumi Paul’s work is anchored in a practice of listening. Her art departs from the intersections of sound, composition and perception. Informed by the resonant frequencies of material, and the understanding that everything is animate, her most recent research focuses on states of rest. It asks us to sense, in a non-linear way, what is there when one does not actively interfere. Working with paper, textile, stitching, as well as performance and installation, her work can be described as an exploration of connectivity. It allows us to experience a realm of synchronicity between moving and being moved, between performer and performed, and between the body and the imagination.

“What if an exhibition hall became a place of continuous song?”
— Ayumi Paul

The Agency was so honoured to collaborate with Ayumi Paul in a performance and text reading during our Sophie Calle exhibition in Berlin in 2016. The violin performance by Ayumi Paul was accompanied by a reading by Stephanie Eidt (Reader, actress) and was directed by famed Director, Thomas Ostermeier.

AAA features the artistic practice of Heinz Mack() today and his chromatic constellation paintings. This specific area of his practice explores the essence of colour.

In his painting Mack understands "colour as light and light as colour", which he seeks to capture and shape in his paintings. For him, colour intensity always correlates with light intensity, which expands as a colour space.

The artist views forms as having the role of a rhythmic restriction in his chromatic paintings; a restriction within which light as colour can appear. The colour "temperatures" at the same time determine the sensuality of the colours and are conditions for a rich, complex radiation of colour in which dynamic and rhythmic impulses find exciting yet harmonic relationships with one another.

Markus Muntean and Adi Rosenblum have worked as an artist-duo since 1992. In their work they juxtapose references to the histories of art and literature with imagery borrowed from present-day pop culture and social media. This is a sampling process that sets up a dialogue between real life and fiction in which high and low art references unfold simultaneously.

"We are not afraid of pathos, as a form of mirroring and evoking emotion, and have always been interested in the historical dimension of images which are capable of generating affect in viewers. We have witnessed an enormous multiplication of different image making technologies with the rise of digital culture and have positioned the painted image as our preferred space to ask questions about these novel image universes, their qualities and problems." - Muntean/Rosenblum, 2022

The duo's work is on view until the 15th of January, 2023 as part of the dual exhibition of works by Hauenschild Ritter – Muntean/Rosenblum – two artist collectives in Vienna at the Albertina Museum (), Vienna, Austria.

AAA is so looking forward to welcoming Berlin-based, Chinese artist Xiyao Wang () down under to Australia for an exhibition next month!

Wang's large-scale, immersive paintings with their gestural lines, evoke echoes of landscapes, bodies, movements and thoughts. In the process, she develops a kind of hybrid abstract painting that combines various influences and inspirations: Taoism and post-structuralism, ancient Chinese pictorial traditions, bodywork, dance, martial arts, and the canon of Western art history.

"I see the canvas as a section of the whole, moving, flying phenomenon. As if one would take a photo with a camera. Through the lens of the camera or the canvas, you see only a section, and at the moment when the trigger is pressed, time stands still, and all movements are frozen or blurred into a blur. Or like an insect that is hit by a drop of tree sap. Quite unplanned, this animal now remains forever in this position as amber fossilised." - Xiyao Wang

Stay tuned for further updates.

AAA is so pleased to announce Del Kathryn Barton's () solo presentation "love wants to give" that opens on the 18th of November at Albertz Benda (), Los Angeles in collaboration with Arndt Art Agency❤️💜💙⁠

Del Kathryn Barton returns to the United States with a body of work that is expansive, powerful and interconnected in its exploration and construction of love. "love wants to give" unites Barton’s distinct visual languages with the notion of art as a life source that is rooted in an ever-present, humming undercurrent of love. ⁠

The works are laden with the artist’s signature hyperbolic colour-palettes and details, while remaining grounded in earthiness of Australian-alluding flora and fauna. The boundaries between real and dream-state, natural and constructed, internal and external, are interrogated and dissolved by Barton, revealing the space for the transcendent experience of deep connection as all that can be truly known. ⁠

Stay tuned for further impressions of this spectacular presentation!⁠

09/11/2022

AAA wishes Rodel Tapaya () and Yavuz Gallery () all the very best for the opening of Rodel's solo exhibition "Animals Moved by Music" this week at the gallery's Sydney branch!

The title of the exhibition takes its cue from Franz Kakfa’s best-known novella, Metamorphosis. In it, the protagonist Gregor Samsa, who even transforming into a “monstrous vermin,” remains vulnerable to the seduction of music played by his sister Grete, is not a direct translation of the story, but a springboard to an examination of our contemporary predicament: the maladies of isolation, the terror of venturing out of the domestic space, the restoration of the old familiars. These instances of metamorphosis are conveyed by the characters who dominate the hierarchical scale of the paintings, both visceral and symbolic.

"Animals Moved by Music" flirts with the parameters of a parable, but offers a direct, undeniable link to our present-day conditions where we continue to reckon with what we have lost and what we have gained. The world-building in Tapaya’s paintings, with their grids and configurations, is one of perpetual reconstruction, as if to say that the invention of being human is never finished but is an amalgamation of a series of constant adjustments that occasionally, gives rise to momentary sparks of revelation.

04/11/2022

Jane Lee's () solo presentation "Dancing With The Cosmos" recently staged in Paris at ASIA NOW () continued the artist's distinctive, dynamic style of abstraction.

In titling this series of work, Lee references ideas about a ‘New Earth’: the dawn of a new era of consciousness heralded by the Age of Aquarius, a period said to be distinguished by the flourishing of artistic and creative endeavours as the old world order gives way to new ideas.

Works in this series evoke imagery of natural forces or
verdant growth, as befitting the dawn of a ‘new earth’. "New Norm #2" is a cascade of paint that suggests either an avalanche or a waterfall, a symbolic ‘washing away’ to make way for a clean slate. The hollowed out troughs of the "New Breed" works are suggestive of landscapes and landforms – either gentle valleys, or else rugged ridges created by explosive elemental forces. Other variations are more placid, and suggest more conventional landscapes or seascapes, just visible under layers of paint like residual images....Lee’s mark-making and the energy of this tactile play are writ large on their surfaces — by turns explosive and sensuous, but also subtle and intimate.

Evocative of cosmic and elemental forces, these new works celebrate the vitality of creation — whether of art and painting, or of new worlds. Just like the ethos of the ‘New Earth’ which she draws inspiration from, Lee’s art seeks to explore a contemporary spirit and approach to the age-old medium of painting — one that is characterised by exploration, transformation, and play — in her quest to understand painting’s essential nature.

AAA RECOMMENDS: AAA is so pleased to announce its collaboration with Yavuz Gallery () for Rodel Tapaya's () upcoming solo exhibition "Animals Moved by Music" at their new state of the art Sydney premises. The show opens on the 10th of November and will run until the 3rd of December.

In his latest body of work acclaimed Filipino artist Tapaya plumbs the fault lines through which the terrain of the everyday slides, shifts, and reconfigures. The paintings orbit around mundane transformations centred on private life and its never-ending negotiations with the outside world and its looming threat of contamination as well as its irresistible offer of self-actualisation.

“My challenge to myself is how to make a huge work complex in composition and detail yet with harmony and unity, inspired by stories of the past.” – Rodel Tapaya

We wish Rodel and the entire team at Yavuz Gallery all the very best for this upcoming project🎉🎉🎉

AAA WORK OF THE WEEK:

Ben Quilty
The Alien, Cook’s Death, After Zoffany, 2022
oil on linen
202 x 625cm (3 panels) unframed

Quilty's "Alien, Cooks death, after Zoffany" (2022), is based on Johann Zoffany’s painting The Death of Captain James Cook, 1795. Zoffany’s theatrical depiction is itself derived from the story of Cook’s death in Hawaii in 1779. ‘Alien’ Captain James Cook, bearing gifts of Venereal disease and Tuberculosis from foreign lands was initially mistaken by the Hawaiians to be the god Lono and welcomed with reverence. However, suspicion about Cook’s godliness swiftly evolved into hostility following Cook’s sudden return to the island due to storm damage incurred by the ship.

The action of Alien, Cooks death, after Zoffany emanates from a direct mirroring along the central axis. Divergent versions of the one history painting spread left and right from a dense centre creating a compositional loop; we feel caught in the turbulence of two immense flapping wings. This dynamism is echoed in the mutations occurring in the details; figures morph into a new set of players. Cook’s face on either side is supplanted — on the left by that of Christ derived from Rubens’ painting The entombment, and Quilty’s father on the right with a comic Pinocchio nose.

The heroic Captain Cook conveyed by Zoffany, Captain Cook the Martyr slayed ruthlessly by the natives, breaks like a great wave upon the rocks and in the tumult surfaces questions of authority, narrative power, the legacy of colonisation and white man’s attitude towards difference.

This epic triptych is currently on display as part of the The Bangkok Biennale (BAB) () which runs until the the 23rd of February 2023. Congratulations dear Ben Quilty () !!!!

AAA Flashback Friday : Today we reflect upon our solo presentation of works in Berlin by leading Filipino artist Yeo Kaa () entitled "ANXIOUS LUSTLESS PECHAY". The exhibition took place at Arndt Art Agency's German headquarters in the summer of 2018 coinciding with the agency's AAA PROJECTS SUMMER RESIDENCY, whereby Yeo Kaa spent several weeks creating work within our exhibition spaces.

In the artist's characteristic style, she painted deceptively candy-coloured characters presented in challenging states of reality. Her stylised figuration brings to mind animation and fictional characters from children’s books, a fantasy world that exists only in dreams and imagination. These elements cleverly camouflaged daring images of the human anatomy that explored the monsters that torment the human psyche and disruptions to bodily craving for pleasure.

AAA ARTIST STUDIO VISITS: In the next installment of our series of artist studio visits we feature Chinese artist Xiyao Wang () in her studio in Berlin on a recent visit with AAA Founder, Matthias Arndt (.arndt)

We love Wang's large-scale, immersive paintings in which gestural lines evoke echoes of landscapes, bodies, movements, thoughts. These hybrid abstract paintings combine various influences and inspirations: Taoism and post-structuralism, ancient Chinese pictorial traditions, bodywork, dance, martial arts, and the canon of Western art history.

At Cromwell Place in London, ‘The Possibility of an Island’, presented by Arndt Art Agency, considers ‘parallel isolationist existences’ across island geographies in Southeast Asia.
“The Possibility of an Island”, presented by Arndt Art Agency at London’s newest Cromwell Place, celebrates the vibrant contemporary art of Southeast Asia and the Pacific region.The very word, possibility, evokes positivity; a chance, a hope. It speaks to the future and not the present. Read Louise's take on the exhibition in our latest piece.
Leading Filipino artist Marina Cruz’s paintings evoke a feeling of nostalgia and highlight the value of family. Her works play with depictions of textures, colours and shapes of fabric and personal clothing, magnified from a certain spot and rendered in detail. The clothes that Cruz paints are part of a deeper fabric of remembering forgotten family narratives: her chance encounter with a heap of family heirlooms, and discovering the small dresses that her mother and her mother’s twin sister wore as children, which left a lasting impression on her.
The damaged, brittle condition of the tiny dresses opened up a remarkable world from the past able to be codified through such objects. The paintings 'Barren land but maybe not…' and 'Green Plot' invite the viewer to move between two modes of interpretation – formalist and minimalist.

On view now as part of our exhibition "Closer than they appear" at Yavuz Gallery Sydney.
