“Constructed culture sounds like conculture” at Ellis King, Dublin

by mousse

February 26~2015

“Constructed culture sounds like conculture” explores the practice of five international artists, their individual approaches to storytelling, formally and conceptually and how the artworks they produce suggest a narratative world with its own set of rules, a constructed environment. When using the term “constructed”, one is prompted to think of a conculture or fictional culture. Constructed Culture is not synonymous with what social anthropologists define as a cultural construction; a shared understanding of some aspect of the world that exists because the people of a specific culture acknowledge and understand that thing to exist. Constructed culture sounds like conculture examines the work of five practices using various techniques to illustrate their individual, constructed worlds, which emerge out of their subjective and uncondensed experience. These experiences range from political investigations into a cultural dream, formal breakdowns of architectural elements, romantic journeys into the tropical and wild, to interests in social codes and re-writing the codes of a rollercoaster landscape.

Rita Ackermann at Hauser & Wirth, Zurich

by mousse

February 25~2015

Hauser & Wirth Zürich is pleased to announce an exhibition of new chalkboard paintings by Rita Ackermann. This body of work was presented for the first time at Sammlung Friedrichshof, Austria in 2014, and a second series was shown later the same year at Art Unlimited, Art Basel. The works in this exhibition are a step further in Ackermann’s investigation into the deconstruction and disappearance of a pictorial language. Ackermann’s new compositions occupy a space between the figurative and the abstract, where human forms simultaneously disappear and re-emerge in traces of chalk dust.

Paul Johnson “The Sunless Sea” at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea

by mousse

February 23~2015

Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present Paul Johnson’s exhibition “The Sunless Sea”, a series of new work by the British artist, presented in FPG’s main gallery, window space and display cabinets. Inspired by south Essex’s history of attracting utopian thinkers and the artist’s continued interest in the failed historic attempts to fulfill such visionary ideas, Johnson presents an ostensibly ritualistic series of sculptures and wall works, seemingly shaped by their processes and history.

Jean-Baptiste Bernadet “Vetiver” at Galerie Valentin, Paris

by mousse

February 21~2015

In his Philosophical Investigations, Wittgenstein describes the structure of our thoughts as they are prior to an illuminating discovery, when they remain on hold, with contradictions left to resolve. The task of any creative pursuit isn’t, according to him, to resolve or clarify these contradictions, but to give a “precise” idea of this disconcerting, confused situation that precedes the contradiction’s resolution. Similarly, the “clear and confused” atmosphere of Jean-Baptiste Bernadet’s paintings outlines a preliminary state, that floating zone where the contradiction hasn’t been treated and sent off, but subsists as reservation. Their haziness doesn’t illustrate a subjective state (expressionism), or objective (impressionism) but simply exists as such. As a “subject” it causes its own effect.

“Beautiful Monsters” at Gladstone Gallery, New York

by mousse

February 18~2015

Sam Korman: Why start with Picabia? Or did you arrive at Picabia?

Douglas Fogle: The idea for “Beautiful Monsters” definitely started with Picabia, but really from his writing. The title of the show was taken from a stanza of “Baccarat”, from 1940:

“I am a beautiful monster
who shares his secrets with the wind.
What I love most in others
is myself.”

AA Bronson “White Flag” at Esther Schipper, Berlin

by mousse

February 17~2015

Esther Schipper is pleased to present AA Bronson’s “White Flag”, the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. On September 11, 2001, AA Bronson was caught in Toronto when his flight home to New York was canceled. He watched in real time on television, as two airplanes punctured the twin towers of the World Trade Center, and then as the towers collapsed. It was seven days before he could rejoin his husband in lower Manhattan. What he found there is inscribed indelibly on his brain: a thick chalky dust of glass, concrete, paper, asbestos and human flesh that covered everything; and American flags, everywhere.

Vincent Meessen and Thela Tendu “Patterns for (Re)cognition” at Kunsthalle Basel

by mousse

February 13~2015

“Patterns for (Re)cognition” is the largest exhibition to date, and the first exhibition in Switzerland, by the Belgian artist Vincent Meessen, who will represent Belgium at the upcoming Venice Biennale. Meessen’s often collaborative and rigorously research-based practice includes investigations into gaps in the writing of history, particularly colonial histories. At Kunsthalle Basel, the artist presents several new modular sculptures; a series of 16-millimeter films based on found film fragments; a new sound piece; borrowed early-19th-century ritual objects originating from the Kuba Kingdom; and a series of folded paper works. All of these serve as a visual and conceptual backdrop for a selection of 1930s paintings by the little-known Congolese painter Thela Tendu.

Ben Schumacher “New York City Farm Tower” at Bortolami Gallery, New York

by mousse

February 11~2015

Bortolami is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition with Ben Schumacher. Schumacher transforms the gallery into a staging ground for a submission to the New York City Farm Tower architectural competition, the outcome of which could potentially be realized on 19th street and 10th Avenue, one block away from Bortolami and adjacent to the High Line. Sponsored by the Architecture Workshop in Rome, the competition solicits proposals for a vertical farm incorporating residential dwellings. As the official brief explains: “urban vertical farming means the cultivation of agriculture products and livestock in vertical, in multi-story structures energy self-sufficient inserted within the metropolitan areas.”

by mousse

February 10~2015

Thomas Duncan Gallery is pleased to announce “Jean, Jean et l’enfant sauvage”, the gallery’s first exhibition with Auckland-based artist Oscar Enberg. For his Los Angeles debut, Enberg continues his exploration of sculptural potentiality by fusing seemingly disparate yet intriguingly related narratives, employing a combination of handcrafted and professionally fabricated modes of production. The exhibition illustrates an imagined and deflated family unit by splicing and weaving together characters from literature, art history and Los Angeles civic history.
