London Biennale: the beginning David Medalla

London Biennale: the beginning David Medalla. The year was 2010, the FIFA Football World Cup was held in South Africa. Newspapers and magazines are teeming with articles and photographs of South Africa. There are extensive media coverage of the sports facilities which the South African government has erected to host this global event. I saw colour photographs of the massive new football stadium in Cape Town. Seen from the air the concrete stadium looks like a solid mandala that has fallen from the sky: a beautiful structure with the famous Table Mountain in the background. 4"C" Capetown 3"C" Capetown 1"C" Capetown 2"C" Cape Good The photo of the stadium that I saw was probably taken from the upper storey of a tall buildiing: a modernist skyscraper in the Greenpoint district of Cape Town where Adam Nankervis and I stayed during the 2nd Johannesburg Biennial. The year was 1997. I was a DAAD artist in Berlin. The year before Adam Nankervis started MUSEUM MAN in Prenzlauerberg in East Berlin. MUSEUM MAN has since become a nomadic museum of contemporary art from all parts of the world. Cuban curator and art historian Gerardo Mosquera (a previous director of the Habana Biennial in Cuba) invited Adam Nankervis and me to participate in the 2nd Johannesburg Biennial which was directed by Okwui Enwezor in 1997. Gerardo Mosquera installed the works of the artists he personally invited in the Johannesburg Art Gallery. Brazilian scuptor Cildo Meireles greeted us when we arrived at the gallery. Cildo had finished his installation and there was just enough time for him to say ‘Hello’ to us and for him to catch a plane to America. Adam and I created installations inside the Johannesburg Art Gallery, participatory installations in relation to the theme “Trade Winds”, the theme of the 2nd Johannesburg Biennial. In the centre of our twin installations was a large circular table on which we invited the spectators to the show to put anything on it in exchange for anything they find on the table. One person put a book of Nelson Mandela’s speeches which another person exchanged for his expensive wrist watch. I told the director of the Johannesburg Art Gallery that perhaps someone from Soweto might come and bring a goat and exchange it for a chair by Gerrit Rietveld which is in the gallery’s collection. Alas, that did not happen. During the first week of the Johannesburg Biennial, Adam and I went to Cape Town.We stayed in a bed and breakfast inn beneath the Table Mountain. One bright sunny morning Adam and I sailed from Cape Town on a sail boat accompanied by a small crew of sailors and cameramen and women. We sailed past the Cape of Good Hope towards Cape Point: to the place where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. It was the place where dolphins, sharks and whales mate. From our boat Adam and I unfolded a colourful piece of cotton cloth above the waters. The winds helped Adam and me in shaping the billowing cloth into the letter “C” – the initial letter of Cape Town. A video was made of our event, which was part of our on-going project entitled “The Secret History of the Mondrian Fan Club”. We took the video back to Johannesburg and showed it in our twin installations inside the Johannesburg Art Gallery. We returned to Cape Town and stayed, the second time round, in the tall skyscraper-like modernist building at Greenpoint. During our second stay in Cape Town Adam and I created impromptu events in different parts of the city. In one event we joined a chorus of wandering singers in the city centre. In another part of the town I did an impromptu in front of a shop with the sign “A Stitch in Time”. Adam did an impromptu in front of a school surrounded by a cement wall topped with a fence of barbed wire and a sign saying the barbed wire was electrified. One day we joined artists, art critics, art historians, and art curators, who came down from Johannesburg to Cape Town, in a boat trip to Robben Island. Robben Island was where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated during the apartheid regime in South Africa. At Robben Island, the international art community conducted an impromptu conference in homage to Nelson Mandela inside one of the halls of the former island prison. Afterwards Adam and I explored the jail cells where political opponents of the apartheid regime were locked up. It was an eerie experience. I was reminded of Franz Kafka’s ‘The Penal Colony’. Paradoxically it was also an exhilarating experience, for apartheid had ended and the empty jail cells were mute witnesses to past state crimes while at the same time they were very real testaments to the fact that injustice could end, did end for Nelson Mandela and his fellow freedom fighters, and thus freedom can be accomplished. It was on the boat trip to Robben Island that I conceived of the idea of the London Biennale. I discussed the idea with Adam Nankervis on our way back to Cape Town. We continued discussing the idea when we got back to Berlin. Over the years as as an artist I have participated in many international cultural events such as Documenta in Kassel, Germany, ‘Air Art’ at the University of California in Berkeley Art Museum, ‘Fluxattitudes’ at the New Museum in New York, ‘Live/Life’ at the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, ‘l’Inform’ at the Cntre Pompidou in Paris, and in many art festivals and exhibitions all over the world. I felt that the nature of a famous cultural event such as the Venice Biennale, because of its rigid structure of selecting artists through national institutions, did not make it possible for artists who are citizens of countries without national pavillions in Venice, or artists who live the lives of exiles, migrants or refugees, artists with little or no ‘profiles’ in the art market, have very little chance to show their works and participate in the most prestigious of art biennales: the Venice Biennale. For many years, in the art circles of America and Europe, I was described as a ‘marginal artist’ (albeit with the cynosure ‘par excellence’) by French art critic Pierre Restany (ideologue of ‘nouveau realisme’) and Harald Szeemann, the curator of DOCUMENTA 5. At Cape Town in 1997I thought it was time to create a viable and memorable platform for the world’s ‘marginal artists’, and that, initially, was the inspiration for the LONDON BIENNALE, a biennale that would be open to every artist regardless of age, s*x, ethnic origin, and artistic language or style. The first London Biennale was held in the year 2000, at the start of the new millenium, an auspicious time for an auspicious occasion. Shortly afterwards, Adam Nankervis, who is the internationl coordinator of the London Biennale, suggested that we do ‘Pollinations’ in different parts of the world during the years in-between London Biennale years. The first LB Pollination was ‘Rio Trajetorias’ coordinated by Cristiana de Melo in Rio Janeiro, Brazil. Other LB Pollinations have taken place in Berlin, New York, Rome, Ponte Nossa in Cremona, and other places around the globe. Adam Nankervis also suggested several inter-active participatory projects such as the ‘Flag-genations’ (LBAs making and unfolding their personally designed flags over Tower Bridge in London, and other bridges all over the world), SIGNALS and the current SATELLITE EVENTS. For many years Arvinder Bawa was in charge of our website , now overseen by Daniel Kupferberg. At Adam Nankervis’ initiative, we have a page in FACEBOOK and a new website in which I invite all LBAs to download news and photographs of their exhibitions and events. Artist Raffaella Losapio, director of the Gallery STUDIO.RA in Rome, arranges for articles I write to be published in the internet magazine www.artapartofculture.net David Medalla Director of the LONDON BIENNALE

London Biennale: Masks, Mirages, and the Morphic Mirror 'Not Without Sin' Gazing bright lights glam, glitters they hold Wandering souls of madness kissed and told You once asked me of the world I thought l'd see But you stroked me of hunger, flames, laced with envy. I've tasted the bitter squint of your empty hands Like scorching heat I was shot willingly on stand Your bad news curtailed the times sang by the wind Mocking diamonds, might, and beauty left unskinned. A sad still life stares back at me in a mirror Ashes of unseen futures float as faux valor A dripping noise shuts down the corner of my eyes While the conductor's pass travels alone in lies. The meaning suddenly carries to question itself Shackled surfaces shimmering they've knelt What are we here for if not to your ego's delight? As shadows of the cowcatcher swallow the knight. Now that the old world washes its hands before thee And distance redefined itself for you and me Remember that "art is long, and life is short" Let's all live with love, faith, and humanity beyond comfort.

London Biennale 20202 Masks, Mazes and the Morphic Mirror
London Biennale 2020 Dear David and Adam, I hope this email finds both of you fine. As I discussed earlier, I would like to share with you video work by Munkkh for London Biennale, if it is not too late. It is sent via wetransfer: https://we.tl/t-4ygVRBayuu Also link on youtube is: https://youtu.be/sYbOi6qJrYI His profile can be found in: https://976artgallery.com/munkkh-munkhbolor-ganbold-2/ Below is a text related with video work of Munkkh. Artist Munkhbolor Ganbold 1982 The Wind of Time Video 1.30 min Edited by Dorjkhand Davaa Bulgan aimag, Teshig soum, Tarvagatai valley, height 995, latitude 49.7651, longitude 103.305, archaeological team, insectologists, wood researchers and artists ... There our quest continues ... What can we find in this specific space or a circumstance? Any archaeological findings, new species of insects, or extraordinary works of art? Relaxation in nature or a warm feeling you get from companions? Ancestors spirit, the orb, the insects, the plants, the thoughts, the dreams, the temporal, the attempts to grasp all these turn into a question. But from there the quest continues. From diaries of artist Munkkh The work was shown at the exhibition entitled SIERRA OF CREATION by Mongolian artists Tuguldur Yondonjamts, Munkhbolor Ganbold and Bat-Erdene Batchuluun organized at Art Space 976, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in January, 2020. In July 2019, artists made a field trip to join the team of “The Archaeology of the Tarvagatai Valley” an archaeological collaborative project between the Institute of Archaeology of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences and Yale University, which has been conducting a research since 2010 under the auspices of doctors Jargalan Burentogtokh and William Gardner. During the field visit held in Teshig Soum and for the following months, the artists developed their ideas and created works, basing on their understanding on the scientific research process and results. The project is implemented by U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar and Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association with the framework of STRAX Program by The State Department. Please let me know if any question. Warm regards from Mongolia.
