Paulina Ołowska “The Spell of Warsaw” at Zachęta – National Gallery of Art, Warsaw

by mousse

April 14~2014

The largest Polish presentation of Paulina Ołowska’s work to date, the exhibition shows both its thematic diversity and the various working methods employed by the artist. It features works of painting, sculpture, stage design, installation, neon light, assemblage, drawing, collage, textile, as well as a new installation, created specially for the exhibition: a fashion store with a collection by the brand Clemens en August. In her practice, Ołowska explores the issue of liaisons between the historical avant-garde and the present, creating a melange of arts: high-brow with applied and popular. She is preoccupied with contemporariness and topicality, which she confronts with utopian visions from the past, encouraging the viewer to reflect on forgotten aesthetics and ideologies.

Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys “Das Wunder des Lebens” at Kunsthalle Wien

by mousse

April 14~2014

For some years Belgian artists Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys have been present on the wider stage of the international art scene. They have been producing a unique epic-absurd theatre consisting of video works, photography series and sculptural installations. In February 2014 they will present “Das Wunder des Lebens” (The Miracle of Life), their first large solo show in Austria. Its main element is a large-scale installation which the artists describe as following: “We think of the big exhibition space as a place of stillness. You can only hear the noise of the water plashing from the fountain and you can see 400 (silent) drawings. There are no colours in the exhibition. Only black and white”.

Ceal Floyer at Lisson Gallery, Milan and Museion, Bolzano

by mousse

April 13~2014

Ceal Floyer tests, teases and skirts around the boundaries of what art can or should be in her first exhibition at Lisson Gallery in Milan, which coincides with a major presentation of her works at Museion in nearby Bolzano. Floyer’s 2008 work, Taking a Line for a Walk, in which a machine that creates the white lines on sports fields is driven around and takes its title from Paul Klee’s assertion in the introduction to his Pedagogical Sketchbook of 1923 that a drawing should be: “An active line on a walk, moving freely, without goal. A walk for walk’s sake” Floyer’s own meandering line through space – a performance and a sculpture, as much as a drawing – will be recreated throughout the galleries, drawing visitors downstairs. A rectangular swathe of grass in the garden, entitled Greener Grass (2014), will indeed – as the old saying goes – seem brighter than its counterpart in nature and more vivid than real life.

Hermosa Beach, CA

Dear Michael,

I’m back… from swimming pools and American marble: an autumn of daydream flips where alipslide is also known as disaster. As it happens, everything continues to happen.

Matthias Bitzer “Saturnine Swing” at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York

by mousse

Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present “Saturnine Swing”, an exhibition of new works by Matthias Bitzer. ”Saturnine Swing” is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery since joining in 2013, and his first solo exhibition in New York.  For ”Saturnine Swing”, Matthias Bitzer will use both the uptown and Chelsea gallery spaces to present his drawings, paintings, sculptures, and multi-part installations, ultimately engaging the two spaces and the works contained within to achieve his larger project: a metaphysical space that weaves history, memory, and narrative into a multi-­layered realm that addresses the issues activated by our comprehension of reality.

Trisha Baga at Zabludowicz Collection, London

by mousse

April 11~2014

“The present, the here and now experience – it’s such a dumb and impossibly slippery thing. What we experience is only a fragment of what we are aware… and what I am interested in is the stuff that fills the gaps.” (Trisha Baga, interviewed by Jenny Jaskey, Mousse Magazine, 2012)

David Maljković at Leal Rios Foundation, Lisbon

by mousse

April 10~2014

I don’t know how I found myself in that place. Probably the unconscious again directed the course of my journey. I only know that I stood looking at the sight of the monument for a long time. Suddenly I succeeded in finding a narrow slit to escape from all these historical facts and the journey started. (1)

Michael Staniak “Image DNA” at Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles

by mousse

April 9~2014

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present “Image DNA”, a solo exhibition by Melbourne-based artist Michael Staniak, featuring paintings that seamlessly combine attributes of analog and digital processes. Although Staniak creates the paintings mostly by hand—he builds up texture with uneven layers of plaster and then paints the surface in a range of ways—the paintings bear an uncanny resemblance to flat digital prints. Indeed, one must view the works up close to perceive any texture or depth, and as such, they behave like contemporary trompe l’oeil paintings that baffle the senses. Some paintings do however utilize digital methods of output and in so doing create a dialogue between the two modes of production.

Haroon Mirza “Random Access Recall” at Le Grand Café – Centre d’Art Contemporain, Saint-Nazaire and “The Light Hours” at Villa Savoy, Poissy

by mousse

April 9~2014

Haroon Mirza “Random Access Recall” at Le Grand Café – Centre d’Art Contemporain, Saint-Nazaire

The leitmotif running through Haroon Mirza’s work is the revelation of the world’s latent sonic potential and the clarification of its reading, deployed in composite installations as sculpted spacial soundscapes. Drawing on the sociologist and philosopher Marshall McLuhan’s theories of communication and his writings on acoustic space, the artist contests the privilege accorded to visual space over sound material as the dominant principle of perception. This universe of intermingled temporal layers is populated by numerous accessories: worn out everyday objects being used to produce image and sound, retro furniture, dissected analogue instruments; but also YouTube videos, blinding LEDs, and electronic equipment.

“First lines, like first dates, or the first bite of dessert, can be deceptive” at Bortolami Gallery, New York

by mousse

April 8~2014

Bortolami is pleased to present a three-person exhibition entitled “First lines, like first dates, or the first bite of dessert, can be deceptive”, organized by Christine Messineo. The title of this exhibition is taken from a text by Ann Beattie in which she discusses the inherent difficulty of beginnings, the first line. Where to start? Beattie nullifies the issue of first impressions by allowing her beginnings to remain elliptical, making the encounter unstable. The reader enters a story mid-conversation, mid-scenario.  In this exhibition Ann Veronica Janssens, Kitty Kraus and Daniel Steegmann Mangrané present works where the encounter is not the reveal. First looks cannot be relied upon.

Franz Erhard Walther “The Body Decides” at WIELS Contemporary Art Center, Brussels

by mousse

April 8~2014

Franz Erhard Walther’s exhibition offers an in-depth look at an influential German artist whose pioneering work straddles minimalist sculpture, conceptual art, abstract painting, and performance all while positing fundamental questions about the conventional idea of the artwork as an immutable, obdurate pedestalor wall-bound thing. Bringing together pivotal works made between the 1950s and the present, this exhibition focuses on Walther’s ability to transform notions of objecthood and perception through drawings, paintings, fabric sculptures, participatory forms, languagebased works, photographic documentation and archival material.
