“She wasn’t really sure about his love life. No sex. Well yes but no. Laughing laughing laughing. Birds land on your shoulder. Killing time. Laying on the floor next to a stuffed animal. Letting your hair get greasy. Dying you hair. Ordering coke with ice. Living longer then you can afford.”

The same Chessboard patterned blankets dominated Heimo Zobernig’s exhibition “wood painting” in Malmö this year. With the title Zobernig quoted the play Trämålning (Wood Painting) by Ingmar Bergmann, which became famous as the film Das siebente Siegel, 1957. It tells the story of a knight who plays chess against Death, trying to postpone his death in the game.
Always in a deliberately economical aesthetic and radically sober presentation mode (without framing or any specific setup), for his new exhibition, at Art : Concept, Pierre-Olivier Arnaud continues his reflection on the production of images. Despite the omnipresence of photography, his work is more like that of a visual artist, whose raw material is images, either shot by himself or not.

Anyone with the good fortune to meet Robert Breer has experienced the moment at once collusive and magical, optical and sensual, and which stops time, when he gathers in his hand a collection of pages of his drawings and flips them, generating a sense of movement and creating a moving picture. “I’ve always been fascinated by the magic of the phenomenon; it’s the starting point for all my experimental films” said Breer.

“A Change of Heart” is an exhibition all about flowers. Directly addressing a subject matter that has always been historically marginalized as a subgenre, seen as little more than the byproduct of a charming amateurism, and minor art making, “A Change of Heart” embraces the floral still life in all its formal, symbolic, political and aesthetic heterogeneity.
