20140405152127-87_jab106_img_6591-web Watchlist Artist: Athanasios Argianas  
Athanasios Argianas at Aanant & Zoo 4/5/14 Posted 4/5/14

The work of Athanasios Argianas thrives between media. He makes objects which encode pieces of music he may have composed in the past, and designs objects to be used as structures for performances in the future and vice versa. At the last Performa Biennial, for example, he made slides of tree branches, which were treated as a score for a Theremin (a modernist protosynthesizer from the early 20th century), while at the last São Paulo Biennial he presented a sculptural structure supporting...

Watchlist Artist: Stijn Ank  
2/13/14 Posted 2/13/14

Galerie Michael Janssen Berlin is proud to present its first solo exhibition with Belgian artist Stijn Ank (b. 1977) entitled diSTANCES. Ank’s body of work can be considered as an extensive research into the relationship between matter and void and the various ways in which contemporary sculpture can be defined in relation to its surrounding space. Because of the hypothetical and non-referential nature of his pieces Ank simply numbers them chronologically, avoiding giving them titles a... [more]

at Sommer & Kohl 11/11/13 Posted 11/11/13

Sommer & Kohl are happy to present the first solo exhibition of new works by Swiss artist Vanessa Billy (*1978 in Geneva, Switzerland). The exhibition Dear energy can be understood as a homage to energy, how we can get it through the transformation of matter, whether it be food, gas, petrol or water, all of which are constantly available to us. In every household there are countless appliances that need electricity to function. The energy consumption when sending an email amounts to the same as when sen... [more]

20130923130056-090rep Primary Forms with a Bold Function  
Eva Fidjeland, Jane Walker at Galerie Stexwig September 15th, 2013 - October 27th, 2013
Posted 9/23/13

I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened color palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function. `Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I`m unsure of the media/process employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected fo... [more]
