Esther Schipper

Esther Schipper Gallery for contemporary art The gallery is especially known for exhibiting and finding markets for ephemeral and time-based conceptual projects and for the longstanding and continuous collaborations with its artists, whose work spans across a wide spectrum of practices.

Many of the artists with whom Esther Schipper has worked since the 1990s, among them Angela Bulloch, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Liam Gillick, Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno, are central figures in radically rethinking the exhibition as a form and taking it as a critical medium. After opening a project space in Berlin in 1995, the gallery moved its entire operations to the German Capital in 1

Cemile Sahin's It Would Have Taught Me Wisdom, at Esther Schipper through October 30.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
A major motif of Cemile Sahin's colored plexiglass panels with digitally printed elements is a digitally reconstructed 3D model of a porcelain statue—an écritoire, or inkwell, above which the goddess Minerva sits enthroned—which was the centerpiece on the table where the Sèvres treaty was signed and which the artist had printed based on documentation she discovered in the course of her research into the treaties of Sèvres (1920) and Lausanne (1923) and their ongoing impact a century later.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
In Sahin's work, the goddess has been marked more prominently in the garb of war: her flowing robe bears the camouflage patterns of modern combat uniforms, in this case, those of France (image 1), Germany (image 2), Italy (image 3), Turkey (image 4), and United Kingdom (image 5).⁠⁠

For our Spotlight this month we present Ari Benjamin Meyers, K Club, 2019. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠⁠
K Club is a musical situation staged for one visitor only at a time. A neon sign marks the entrance to a dance club, the exhibition space is designed accordingly. The music track was composed by Ari Benjamin Meyers with Canadian electronica musician Deadbeat and takes the visitor on a condensed journey through an entire night out clubbing. By mixing two vinyl records of the same track, a unique score for each visitor is created live by the DJ. An important aspect of the work is the situation of waiting: visitors are randomly assigned a number; only if their number is called by the bouncer are they allowed in.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
— Jörn Schafaff (Tacet in Concert, Corraini Edizioni, 2019, p. 6)⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Experience K Club, performed with @violetakaviolet and @djtennis at @maatmuseum, October 5! ⁠⁠

Liu Ye’s Internationale Architektur at Esther Schipper through October 23, 2021.⁠

Among the motifs on which the exhibited works draw are the 1925 Bauhaus building complex by architect Walter Gropius in the German town Dessau, the Rietveld-Schroeder House designed in 1924 by the Netherlandish architect Gerrit Rietveld in Utrecht, and a 1968 equestrian estate built by the Mexican modernist architect Louis Barragán. Two works from 2021 depict figures wearing the iconic costumes the German artist Oskar Schlemmer designed for his experimental Triadic Ballet in the early 1920s, while another work, Prelude, also pictures a stage-like space, this one screened almost entirely by a red curtain from behind which a figure is looking out. Also on view are works from Liu Ye's series of book paintings, depicting pages from the 1942 edition of Karl Blossfeldt's Wunder in der Natur and the cover of the first publication from the so-called Bauhaus Bücher, Internationale Architektur, published in 1925.⁠

⁠⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Mind’s Eye is a materialized deep image reconstruction, a mental image output from UUmwelt, first presented at the Serpentine in 2018. UUmwelt is a co-production of imagination between human and machine, using a brain-computer interface.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
A set of elementary components – building blocks of a speculative situation – were given as images or descriptions to be imagined by a subject, among them biological entities, prehistoric tools, machines, code, and artworks. As the subject imagines these components, brain activity was captured by an fMRI scanner and an engineered deep neural network learned to recognize the brain-data patterns and then attempted to reconstruct the mental images.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Mental images can circulate from mind to mind, outside the realm of appearance, as synthetic telepathic conversation, or be externalized from the subjects’ minds and manifest themselves physically.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Mind’s Eye is an artefact of the imaginary realm, a precipitate occupying the space. It lies in an ambiguous continuity between human visual imagination, artificial intelligence, data and matter.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The aggregate of materials modifies itself and the environment at its own pace.⁠⁠
— Pierre Huyghe⁠⁠

Philippe Parreno's The Owl in Daylight, 2020 is presented by @estherschipperberlin and @gladstone.gallery at @artbasel #Unlimited, Booth U15.⁠

Entirely conceived in high-end computer-generated imagery, The Owl in Daylight is a ‘work-in-motion’ by Philippe Parreno. In constant evolution, it is composed of multiple visual sequences controlled and juxtaposed using Bronze technology, a model of artificial intelligence developed by musicians Lexx and Gwilym Gold, and scientist Mick Grierson.

This moving tableau depicts a landscape bordered by a body of water. If at first glance the image seems static, subtle changes of light, temporality, and atmospheric
conditions appear little by little. When transitioning between two sequences, the image of sometimes blinks, flickers, as if the entity controlling it was hesitating.

The AI controls both the animation and the soundtrack of the film. Philippe Parreno used Bronze initially in 2019 as part of his site-specific commission for MoMA, creating what he describes as an ‘autopoietic system, responding to itself and its surroundings endlessly.’

The work takes its title from an unfinished Philip K. Dick novel that he was writing at the time of his death in 1982.

We hope you join us at Art Basel #Unlimited where we present Liam Gillick's The Lights are no Brighter at the Centre, 2017, in collaboration with @caseykaplangallery @kerlingallery @galleriaalfonsoartiaco @maureen_paley @galerieevapresenhuber and @gallerybaton, Booth U10⁠.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Gillick's The Lights are no Brighter at the Centre, 2017, was first exhibited at CAC Vilnius in 2017. This installation consists of an architectural model of a suburban industrial area. Multi-colored lights, projected animation, and a soundtrack evoke the idea of a nightclub located on the outskirts of a city.⁠⁠

⁠⁠
General Idea's AIDS Cross (Cadmium Red Medium), 1991/2021, constitutes one of the largest of General Idea’s AIDS works. This new painting echoes the form and dimensions of Robert Indiana’s 1968 LOVE Cross, while also evoking the emblem of the International Red Cross.⁠⁠

Rosa Barba, In a Perpetual Now at the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin.

The Neue Nationalgalerie celebrates its reopening after six years of renovation with a solo exhibition by Rosa Barba. Under the title In a Perpetual Now, Barba presents key works of her oeuvre from the years 2009–2021, her new film Plastic Limits and three new sculptures created for the exhibition.

An expansive steel structure—referring in its architectural design to Mies van der Rohe's early project, Brick Country House—hosts 15 of Barba's cinematic and sculptural works. Specially produced for the architecture of the Neue Nationalgalerie, this major solo exhibition follows the principle of cinematic montage, which plays a pivotal role in the artist’s work as well as her conceptual approach to cinema itself.

Congratulations to Hito Steyerl, this⁠ year's recipient of the Honorary B3 BEN Award in the category Art! ⁠

Her work includes texts, performances, multimedia installations and essayistic documentaries in which she deals with postcolonial critique, feminist representational logic and the influences of globalization on the financial, labor and commodity markets. She is considered one of the most socially critical and very political artists of our time. ⁠

"In her works, Hito Steyerl takes an active stance on political, societal and social processes using a variety of artistic means. In doing so, she always works at the interface of visual art and film as well as theory and practice. Her work fascinates through the use of different media and art forms. She creates moving art in the best sense of the word," says Prof. Bernd Kracke, Artistic Director of B3.⁠

The award ceremony will be held via livestream on the opening day of B3, 15 October, in Frankfurt at ASTOR Film Lounge MyZeil.⁠
