ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART

3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

Taking a Museum of African Art to the Bank   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Meschac Gaba at KunstHall - Deutsche Bank September 20th - November 16th
Posted 10/30/14

When the world thinks of Africa at the moment, the conversation seems to stop on the deadly West African virus, Ebola. For a less alarmist and fear-stoked impression of a massive continent, Meschac Gaba’s Museum of Contemporary African Art (1997-2002), on view at Berlin’s Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle until November 16, is currently offering insights through the eyes of one money-minded artist from Benin. Funny coincidence this show is hosted by a Deutsche Bank-sponsored gallery, as German... [more]

Emerging Russian Artists You Need to Know   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 10/28/14

Last week the Calvert Journal, an online journal produced by the Calvert 22 Foundation, released a 20 Under 40 list of Russian artists to look out for. The Foundation's exhibition space, Calvert 22, is the only not-for-profit gallery in London dedicated to contemporary art from Russia and Eastern Europe. Its program often contextualizes contemporary Russian artists’ output with the country’s rich historical and cultural past. The gallery's current exhibition, Beyond Zero (installed throu... [more]

Interview with Chaim van Luit: A hunter-gatherer with his own assembly line  
by
10/27/14 Posted 10/27/14

Amsterdam, Oct. 2014: Some people are called to the arts by way of a detour, but Chaim van Luit’s route is exceptional by any standard. Being a bit too restless for the regular educational system he dropped out of high school at 17 and joined the marines. He traveled the world working ten-hour shifts for months on end. At the end of his four-year tour he decided it was time for a change. After taking a special entry exam he was accepted at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. He laid dow... [more]

Joan Jonas Knows How to Make Performance Art That Endures   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Joan Jonas at HangarBicocca Foundation October 2nd - February 1st, 2015
Posted 10/26/14

Time is the one thing we can all agree to call supernatural. It is at least neither energy nor matter… and yet it is the beginning and end of the creation of the world. Joan Jonas concluded her performance at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan with these words from Under the Glacier (1968), a little known, visionary novel by the Icelandic writer Halldór Laxness. The acclaimed New York video and performance artist looked like a Lilliputian creature, an aged little fairy; her snow-whit... [more]

Recently, a “Stereotypes of the Netherlands” map made its rounds on the Internet, describing how the Dutch conceptualize their small country’s terrain. Down south, in the middle of Brabant’s “Catholic Carnival Country,” a short distance from “Dumb People, Great Beer” (apologies, Belgium), is the technological oasis of “Philipstown,” so named for the diversified technology mega-corporation. If the city is known for innovation in technology and indu... [more]

It's (OFF)icelle: FIAC Is Cool   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

at FIAC October 22nd - October 26th
Posted 10/23/14

There's something new happening at FIAC this year. Not exactly the quickest to catch on to a trend, the Parisian art fair has created its own satellite, with a focus on introducing new art and artists from the international scene through a showcase of 68 galleries from 14 countries. Judged by a selection panel of art historians and curators, the tangential fair's emphasis is on supporting the underdog—not only the up-and-comings, but also "outsiders" and artists who have been overlooked h...

What Does Paris' Deflated Butt Plug Say About Art?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Is it possible that there is someone out there, in the admittedly rather narrow demographic of folk who read this and other art related material, who hasn’t heard of Paul McCarthy’s forceful insertion of a thirty foot high inflatable replica Butt Plug into one of Paris’ most desirable addresses? And yes, in case you were wondering, there is a fair chance that this puerile level of double entendre will continue throughout. If nothing else it gives me, the humble writer, a chance... [more]

30 Years of The Turner Prize: 10 Most Notorious Entries

It's Turner Prize time again. Britain’s most hated art award celebrates its 30th year this year. What has it achieved in over three decades? For one thing – its brought contemporary British art to the public attention – mostly to be lampooned by the tabloids. Who can forget headlines surrounding Tracey Emin’s winning entry My Bed (dubbed ‘My Turd’ by Private Eye) or the fury roused by Damien Hirst’s formaldehyde tiger shark entry in 1992? The “national joke” has provoked walk outs and protests (the Stuckist... [more]

Who is Responsible for the American Dream?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Josef Strau at Renaissance Society September 21st - November 9th
Posted 10/17/14

I had a dream a couple years ago in which a new, previously unknown continent was discovered on Earth. The knowledge entered my consciousness first like the ambient news of a radio dispatch. It was an impersonal knowledge, born through the slippery medium of dream space, the source of the transmission overlooked as my dream self wondered instead about the profound consequence such a discovery might have on the rest of humankind. The next thing I remember is that I stood on the ground of the new cou... [more]

Carry Your Ghosts: Ryan McGinley, Dan Colen, and the Specters of Youth   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Ryan McGinley at Team Gallery - Grand St September 7th - October 12th
Posted 10/15/14

When I moved to New York in 2007 one of the first things I picked up was a copy of New York Magazine with Dash Snow, Dan Colen, and Ryan McGinley in bed together on the cover. The image, shot by Cass Bird, has stayed with me. It shows a bird’s-eye view of three friends in their underwear, snuggled together like a small litter of puppies. The picture is intimate but it becomes oddly intrusive on a magazine cover, in part because no one is making eye contact with the photographer. Instead all... [more]

For more than ten years, Luftwerk (the creative vision of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero) have created art installations that merge elements of light and video with facets of architecture and design. An opportunity to create a new media exhibit for the centennial celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House in 2010 sparked a growing interest in architecture leading to a deeper engagement with space and culturally significant buildings. Luftwerk will have an installation at the Mies van... [more]

The Art Fair Card: Can Replication Be a Form of Criticism?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 10/14/14

It’s been played. The recent onslaught of exhibitions quoting and using the art fair as a form is well established—and some artists use it better than others. While the market is undeniable, and the phenomenon of the art fair is internationally far-reaching, what are the implications of its criticism through replica? As case studies, two recent exhibitions come to mind: José Lerma's La Bella Crisis at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), which took place over the summer of this year... [more]
