Steven Pippin “Insignificant” at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York

by mousse

December 18~2014

Gavin Brown’s enterprise is pleased to announce an exhibition by Steven Pippin. “The idea originated in 2003 whilst coming across a metaphor that is repeatedly used in astrophysics describing the current state of the universe. This metaphor simply uses a pencil balancing on its point to illustrate the perfect harmonic state that exists in the relationship between space and time, now termed spacetime. The work here on display uses a 2B unmodified standard pencil and crosses the boundaries of existential philosophy with astrophysics combined into a delicate and complex feedback system that can achieve this subtle balance of the pencil to a point that comes close to a sensation of suspended time.”

Noam Rappaport at James Fuentes, New York

by mousse

December 17~2014

In the exhibition, Rappaport continues his focus on wall-based works that operate between painting, sculpture and drawing. Using a palette drawn from the constantly regenerating constructed landscape of Southern California, his application of color varies in saturation and ranges from subtle landscape influenced tones, to high-pitched hues of popular graphics.

“About Sculpture #4” at Galerie Rolando Anselmi, Berlin

by mousse

December 17~2014

Galerie Rolando Anselmi is delighted to present the fourth and last chapter of the on-going project, “About Sculpture.” The project has evolved throughout the year, with four group exhibitions exploring contemporary sculpture. The artistic relevance of this medium is examined through the work of 25 international artists, born between the 60s and the 80s. The artists included in the exhibitions, ranging from established to emerging, are invited to present one piece, trying to expand and go beyond conventional debates and notions of sculpture. Their works reflect a multi-layered and contradictory image of common media definitions through the implementation of different strategies of investigation and aesthetic parameters. In this occasion we are excited to host works by Nicolas Lamas, Maximilian Schubert, Klaus Weber, A Kassen, Santiago Taccetti, Matt Bryans, Alis/Filliol. The shows aim to build a narrative in space, investigating the relationship between space and material in an effort to exhibit a heterogeneous spectrum of possibilities.

Ibrahim Mahama “Civil Occupation” at Ellis King, Dublin

by mousse

December 15~2014

Ibrahim Mahama is an artist for whom the collectivist potentialities of art production, recall the progressivism of political action. Mahama’s practice acts within the historical intersection of society and its commodities, placing an emphasis on processes in which art becomes the residual product of civic movement. His ambitious installations (”Occupation” 2011 – on-going) form a series of interventions in which symbolically loaded materials often associated with trade and export are utilized to question the role of the object within processes of daily transaction and exchange. Mahama’s epic installations encompass various sites, buildings, landscapes and people of his everyday existence. As totalizing artworks, they transform various contexts to reveal new spatial realities. They perform within the chasm of contemporary postindustrial society, among the clamorous high roads and crane-filled slums, skirted by open gutters of travelling debris.

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd “Bat Opera 2” at Galleria Massimo de Carlo, Milan

by mousse

December 14~2014

The works of Marvin Gaye Chetwynd are deeply rooted into folk traditions: medieval carnivals, propitiatory dances and political demonstrations are the background from which the artist constructs an opulent and dystonic world that often refers to black humour and gothic literature as well as the historical avant-gardes and the icons of contemporary cinema.

“Blue Times” at Kunsthalle Wien

by mousse

December 14~2014

Facebook is blue; Earth is blue when viewed from outer space. Blue is the colour of romanticism and of melancholy. Over 80 percent of the western population chooses blue as their favourite colour. Conservative parties prefer blue; Margret Thatcher’s blue outfits are legendary. It is precisely because blue is so omnipresent in our society that it has experienced such diverse cultural ascriptions and is so open to being ideologically charged. To reclaim a colour like this also means to pick up on its complex and multilayered connotations as well as potentially to reinterpret them.

“Something Beautiful” at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York

by mousse

December 13~2014

”Something Beautiful”uses the lens of contemporary photographic portraiture to examine the ideals of youth as a product of memory and the wisdom of hindsight. Like a daydream, the works on view propose the fleeting sensuality of a fantasy, coupled with the sense of loss that comes from a jolt back to reality—a juxtaposition analogous to the journey from childhood to adulthood. Artists Jeff Burton, Sue de Beer, Keith Edmier, Roe Ethridge, Annika Larsson, Deana Lawson, Viviane Sassen, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Xaviera Simmons, Dorothée Smith, Eva Stenram, Eric Stephany, and Wu Tsang come together here, offering varied photographic visions that portray different manifestations of this shifting space—between youth and maturity, between the ideal and the true.

Talia Chetrit “Model” at kaufmann repetto, Milan

by mousse

December 13~2014

In “Model”, Talia Chetrit reflects on the complex relationship between reality and representation, investigating themes of authenticity in the photographic medium through the exchange between subject and photographer. Alongside the new series of photographs, a video captures Talia Chetrit’s parents—present in earlier photographic works—as unwitting subjects of a collection of video clips. Parents candidly records the self-conscious posturing the artist’s mother and father, contrasting the act of staging an image with the relationships created in the act of photographic portrayal.

Marie Lund “Dip” at Laura Bartlett Gallery, London

by mousse

December 12~2014

The daily ritual of pulling the curtains back and forth, of light shining onto the folds of the fabric, marks the passage of time from days into years into decades. The canvases of Stills were once curtains and used to cover the windows of a Milwaukee home. With their photographic stratifications, they are now presented as an image of their life as functional objects.

“Louise Nevelson 55-70” at Cardi Gallery, Milan

by mousse

December 11~2014

“Louise Nevelson 55-70” features works created between 1955 and 1970, a period when the artist’s signature modernist style emerged, with labyrinthine wooden assemblages and monochrome surfaces, and evolved, as Nevelson incorporated industrial materials such as plexiglas, aluminum and steel in the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition at Cardi Gallery presents more than twenty-five collages and ten sculptures from private collections around the world, including large-scale monochrome reliefs, freestanding large-scale sculptures, and mixed media collages on paper and board, incorporating newsprint, paint, vinyl, metal, and other found objects.

David Andrew Tasman and G. William Webb “Bi-Stable States” at Room East, New York

by mousse

December 10~2014

Room East is pleased to present a two-person exhibition by David Andrew Tasman and G. William Webb, which takes as its subject the state of materiality in a rapidly dematerializing world. The title of the show “Bi-Stable States” refers to the quality or condition of a material that can occupy two states at once: historical and contemporary, digital and analogue, permanent and ephemeral, private and public, solid and liquid, handmade and machine made, transparent and opaque, etc. The works on view range from installation-based video to sculpture made in various materials.

Sarkis “Les pôles des aimants” at Musée du château des ducs de Wurtemberg, Montbéliard

by mousse

December 10~2014

By summoning up the Panthéon and its history in Montbéliard today, Sarkis is continuing a project he first developed in 2000 inside the historic Parisian monument. The neon signatures of some of the famous people interred there was indeed a breath of fresh air under the building’s great dome. Sarkis is
now giving the project a second life within the new framework of a castle. For this first solo show in Montbéliard—a show that is clearly custom designed for the venue—the artist has been like a seismograph, exquisitely sensitive to the history of the site as well as the objects and works he has discovered there, recording stories, comparing and contrasting the archives as well as personal and collective memories, and interweaving these documents in an urge to re-create.
