Digital film, colour, sound, 40 min</p> <p>The central figure of <i>Continuity</i>, 2012, which is often seen as a work about loss and grief, is a young soldier called Daniel, returning home after serving in Afghanistan. The scenario is played out three times, with different actors taking the role of Daniel, so viewers are offered different versions of the same story. The film’s initial images show a married couple driving from their home to a train station, where the uniformed youth awaits. Back at the house, the three share a meal and the young man retires to his room. The sequence of scenes then starts over.</p> <p>Gradually, there develops within this increasingly complicated circular structure a bizarre atmosphere where coherence is lost and it becomes harder and harder to distinguish the real from the unreal. The intimacy between parents and son is ambiguous, with a powerful sexual undertone, and the narrative thread is interrupted by surrealist scenes – a dromedary wanders down the middle of a road running through a pine forest, for example – and sudden horror-film effects. The film ends with a battle scene almost identical to the one portrayed in 1992 by Jeff Wall in <i>Dead Troops Talk (A Vision After an Ambush of a Red Army Patrol, near Moqor, Afghanistan, Winter 1986)</i>. Our consternation is considerable when we grasp that the repetition is not simply a filmic device, but real – a continuity. What appeared at first to be a classic family reunion is in fact a ritual enacted by the couple, who hire a series of young “escorts” to play the role of their son, killed in Afghanistan. Considered to be one of the few scenarios by Omer Fast to have a beginning and an end, <i>Continuity</i> ultimately portrays a situation in pursuit of its own resolution.</p> <p>Drawing a parallel with a technique used in cinema, Omer Fast explains the significance of this continuity:</p> <p>Continuity is a technical concept in filmmaking and relates to the production of a sense of linear time from disparate shots. In a mainstream film, different temporal and spatial techniques are used to smooth over the inherent discontinuity of the material from which a story is made. When thinking about the work, I was interested in how this concept applies psychologically in the context of loss and mourning. The film shows a middle-aged couple whose son appears to have died while serving in Afghanistan. We see them continuously reenacting their encounter with the son and other scenes of domestic life, which occasionally veer into the sexual or the surreal. There is no sense of closure or catharsis: we only see the couple compulsively performing their domestic roles with different young men, in spite of the inherent rupture and crisis that accompanies them.</p> <p>Omer Fast is among those contemporary artists whose goal is an in-depth analysis of the space and narrative form of cinema. The narrative structure of his works is often likened to the one employed by Akira Kurosawa in his famous 1950 film <i>Rashomon</i>, which tells the story of a murder through the different accounts given by four witnesses, including the killer. This multiplication of viewpoints, which allows the presentation of different versions of the same events, breaks with the usual linearity of cinema. As <i>Continuity</i> so effectively shows, another aim of the current exploration of film in contemporary art is to define a new relationship between reality and fiction. Showing a kinship with the storytelling tradition – as witness the central place he gives to the personal account – Omer Fast is interested in how narratives are constructed, but also in how they are transformed at the moment of transmission. The story takes on life and form through the experience of the teller. In several of his films, Omer Fast even makes cinema part of its own representational structure by introducing into the film different aspects of its production, casting, dubbing, subtitling and set.</p> <p>Marie Fraser, Chief Curator</p> Sat, 27 Apr 2013 04:34:18 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Manolo Valdes - Pera Museum - May 8th, 2013 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM <p>A leading figure of Spanish Pop Art, Manolo Valdés will be at Pera Museum between 8 May and 21 July 2013 with a selection of works that extend from the 1980s to the present. <br /><br />Organized in collaboration of Marlborough Gallery New York, the exhibition is comprised of a selection of the artist’s paintings and sculptures. Renowned particularly for the diversity of his media, his large-scale works, and quests in form, Valdés is hailed as one of the great masters of contemporary Spanish art. <br /><br />Following the dissolution of Equipo Crónica, the pioneering group of Pop art in Spain, which he cofounded, Valdés continued his career solo as of 1982. His works derive their strength from the masterpieces of the past, bear historic clues, colors, and textures, and make strong references to art history, carrying traces that extend from Velázquez to Zurbarán, and from Matisse to Picasso and Lichtenstein. <br /><br />Stripping a painting from its original context and reinterpreting it through pop art, the artist primarily focuses on figures, objects, and series.</p> Sat, 06 Apr 2013 07:24:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list STU JAMES - AUSTRALIAN GALLERIES 50 Smith Street - May 9th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Australian sculptor Stu James completed a Bachelor of Arts in sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1988 and has worked as a conservator at the National Gallery of Victoria. James has held solo exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney since 1990 and has been included in group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Australia. Renowned for his sea sculptures, he has received commissions from the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Southgate in Victoria. He was awarded the Keith and Elizabeth Murdoch travelling fellowship in 1992. His work is held by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the Australian Museum of Sport, Melbourne. A master craftsman, James creates intricate, delicate works from beaten copper.</p> Tue, 30 Apr 2013 08:38:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Jane and Louise Wilson - Herbert Art Gallery & Museum - May 9th, 2013 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM <h2 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Join Turner Prize nominated artists Jane and Louise Wilson for a screening and discussion of their work.</span></h2> <p style="text-align: justify;"></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Booking is advised, please call 024 7629 4774.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Event produced in partnership with Coventry Contemporary Art Forum</em></span></p> Mon, 26 Aug 2013 08:33:41 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Roy Arden - Monte Clark Gallery - May 9th, 2013 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Monte Clark Gallery is pleased to present Modern Times, an exhibition of recent works by Roy Arden. An ensemble of paintings, video and assemblage, the works all reference the material aspects of modernity. Arden uses found objects and images as his starting point for depictions of the arrival of steam power and the internal combustion engine, plumbing, and a multitude of new conveyances: trains, cars, planes, motorised ships, and more.  <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> The paintings made under the group heading Modern Times are all derived from stills taken from early animations such as Mickey Mouse cartoons. Arden is more interested in what the background of the paintings tell us rather than the figures—which he has erased. What we are left with is the trauma of industrial innovation, the force, speed, and new angles of vision afforded by modern conveyances. However, the paintings also reference the various new 'isms' of modern art; a plumbing system left intact after a building is destroyed is a reference to Duchamp and the ariel views afforded by Mickey Mouse's ride in an airplane remind us of Malevich's indebtedness to aerial photography. <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> American Primitive (2013) is a large assemblage of vintage toys most likely made by farmers. Here the modern world of metal ships, planes, trains, tractors, artillery and automobiles is rendered as a procession of rustic wooden objects—the new is represented in a medium it has made obsolete. <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> Two other small assemblages entitled Night Train (2012) and Noon Train (2012) collide painting and sculpture. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jalopy (2011) is a projected video that shows a toy, wind-up Model T car designed to appear to be falling apart as it moves. The video shows the car in a smoky environment rattling back and forth across the screen as the stereo sound follows. The first minute of forward movement produces a comical effect while the second minute of reversed footage seems decidedly demonic. <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> Together these works echo the cataclysmic changes of early modernity and the traumas they induced, traumas that we are still working to understand in life and art. <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> <br style="color: #222222; font-family: arial; font-size: small;" /> Roy Arden's work can be found in numerous public collections in North America and Europe, including The National Gallery of Canada, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Centre Pompidou, Paris, The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart. He has exhibited in dozens of international exhibitions from New York to Sharjah, and Berlin to Sydney. In 2007 the Vancouver Art Gallery mounted a survey show of his work covering the period 1981-2007. In 2013, Arden will exhibit in Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950 at the Hirschhorn Museum in Washington D.C..</p> Tue, 07 May 2013 19:31:54 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Doa Aly - The Townhouse Gallery - May 9th, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p>“Desire, Deceit, and Difficult Deliveries,” a solo exhibition by Doa Aly, marks the Egyptian premier of “Metamorphoses: The Sequences.” These video adaptations of four tales from Ovid’s canonical poem—tales of violent, unrequited passions that come to tragic fruition—were the genesis of a body of drawings, sculpture and text collage.</p> <p> “Metamorphoses: The Sequences” (2010-2013), on view in the Townhouse Factory Space, take as their premise the myths of “Echo and Narcissus,” “The Fountain of Salmacis,” “Byblis and Caunus,” and “Myrrha”—stories of taboo, self-annihilating desires and perverted wish fulfillment, wherein the fates ironically answer the protagonists’ all-consuming longings by transforming their bodies, while leaving their yearning intact.</p> <p>Aly began the project in 2010 while reading late 19<sup>th</sup>-century case studies of schizophrenic delusions. The compulsive repetition that is symptomatic of this psychosis framed the artist’s reading of Ovid’s classical epic. Working with non-dancers (a similar working process to Aly’s earlier works, “The Girl Splendid in Walking,” 2009, and “A Tress of Hair,” 2008), the artist developed four different, but closely interrelated trajectories of movement, and a highly aestheticized, but still personal vocabulary of pathetic, obsessive and affective gestures.</p> <p>The exhibition continues in the First Floor Gallery, where a minimal, geometric structure immediately disturbs the viewer’s navigation of space—a sculpture that is based on the paths walked by the performers in the “Metamorphoses” series. This spatial disruption leads to a series of drawings based on diagrams of the human skull in <i>Gray’s Anatomy</i>—the delicate, petal-like bones that protect our fragile brains. A monumental text collage sutures together pieces of Ovid’s poems with medical texts on mental illness, personal memoirs and interviews, and literary works. The texts become performative themselves, creating a more visceral counterpoint to the rarified atmosphere of the videos. Through varying but deeply enmeshed processes, these works all stem from a sublime hysteria underlying everyday life,  that is manifest in both mundane gestures and epic failures alike.  </p> <p>Finally, the video “Roy,” produced in 2012 during the artist’s residency at Ashkal Alwan in Beirut, suggests a potential end to (or transition away from) the “Metamorphoses” series. The eponymous subject of the piece slowly traces one long, autobiographical gesture. Roy, unlike the protagonists of “Metamorphoses,” is achingly human. His bare humanity is simultaneously disturbing and sensual.</p> <p>“Metamorphoses: The Sequences” <br />  Director of photography: Tarek Hefny, Mahmoud Lotfi<br />  Production managers: Tamer Eissa and Mahmoud Khaled<br />  Production assistant: Mansour<br />  Carpentry, woodwork: Hossam Said<br />  Performers: Ahmed El Gendy, Taha Belal, Weaam Said, Sama Waly<br /> Production funded by: British Council, Young Arab Theatre Fund</p> <p>“Roy” soundtrack: Le Banquet Céleste by Olivier Messiaen</p> <p>Very special thanks to all the performers, and to Mahmoud Khaled, Ala Younis, Mohammed Abdallah, Ania Szremski, Townhouse, and The Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts (Ashkal Alwan).</p> Thu, 09 May 2013 04:39:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Contemporary Arts Center, Las Vegas - May 10th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>The Annual Juried Show is the Contemporary Arts Center’s opportunity to expose international, national and local artists working in contemporary visual arts to a wide audience.

With an emphasis on emerging practices, the program provides three artists with studio space on the third floor of Lawndale Art Center at 4912 Main Street in the heart of Houston’s Museum District. This exhibition features residents for the seventh round of the Lawndale Artist Studio Program, DOMOKOS  /  FUTURE BLONDES 0.0.0.0. (Domokos Benczédi), Nancy Douthey &amp; Patrick Turk.</p> <p><strong>DOMOKOS  /  FUTURE BLONDES 0.0.0.0.</strong> presents new works on aluminum, installations, disposable/free items, video manipulations and a sound series to accompany his new body of work created during Lawndale's 2012-2013 Artists Studio Program. These works are a visual / aural extension of the sound and concept of his ongoing work with the experimental music project, <em>future blondes network / network 0.0.0.0. / </em>.</p> <p><strong>Nancy Douthey</strong> wanders through the Lawndale halls in Dom’s polkadot pajama pants and oversized slippers. He has let her borrow these items in an attempt to help her look presentable for tonight’s guest. She has locked herself out of the studio for the fourth time  - this time without pants and only in a blue striped button down men’s shirt in which she has a three foot pile of in the studio and has given as a gift only once to Lane Hagood. Meanwhile, Patrick hosts the <em>Looking at Art</em> collectors group and is in no position to provide words of comfort or advice – she loves his advice. Her phone is also locked in the studio. She tries to use Facebook on Dom’s computer from 2001 to make contact with the outside world – this world consists of one person – Dennis Nance. She is known to make regular late night phone calls to Dennis requesting the third set of keys to get back into her studio all the while trying to take a bath in the large industrial sink on the third floor with the orange industrial soap in order to wash all the pink sugar off of her body in hopes of regaining a good grip on the 10 lb. camera she is borrowing from her cop friend that she met during her last car accident on the way to work. She is making work based on ideas around the drama of performance and the mystery of what is and what might be and what we can only wish for.</p> <p><strong>Patrick Turk</strong>'s highly detailed collages not only use images of the body, or body parts, but are meant to excite a physiological experience for the viewer. Turk is a story teller who uses psychedelic movements and intricate designs to captivate the viewer and bring them into an exotic reality where the body becomes more than it seems. The work produced during the Lawndale Artist Studio Program is a glimpse into Earth’s future as <em>The Superorganism</em>, in which the planet’s surface becomes one gigantic, interconnected biomass comprised of all of the flora and fauna on Earth.  The integration is both biological and telepathic creating a planetary network in which the whole truly is comprised by the sum of its parts. This transformation begins as a last ditch effort to save humanity, reduced by plague, from imminent extinction.</p> Sat, 04 May 2013 23:35:50 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Justin Boyd - Lawndale Art Center - May 10th, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM <p>Through installations, sculptures, videos, and sound pieces, Justin Boyd’s work explores Americana and the American Landscape in search of true American spirit and inspiration. In finding these moments and stories that define us and the environment we live in, it is Boyd’s hope to make work that expands upon those histories and locations, and opens them up for current day exploration and participation. Boyd will be creating a site-derived sound installation in the Cecily E. Horton Gallery employing the sounds of heartbeats, railroads, comets and homecoming mum-bells.</p> Sat, 04 May 2013 23:38:21 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Abhidnya Ghuge - Lawndale Art Center - May 10th, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM <p>Abhidnya Ghuge’s installation begins with an original wood block carving that is printed on thousands of paper plates, which are transformed through simple folds to create a larger organic form. For Ghuge, the meditative process of carving the woodblock, printing and transformation of the paper plates suggests the possibility of preciousness and indispensable beauty. The site-specificity of the installation allows the form to change, thus echoing the global and ever changing nature of “home” in today’s fast pace, mobile culture.</p> Sat, 04 May 2013 23:41:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Massa Lemu - Lawndale Art Center - May 10th, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM <p><em>PRECARIOT </em>is a self-portrait of the artist as a continental drifter in perpetual precarity. The Precariat is a term that combines the word “proletariat” with “precarious” to describe an emerging “barbarian” class of migrant laborers and professionals living and working precariously, holding temporary underpaid jobs, lacking a political voice and increasingly frustrated by their living and working conditions. Attracted by its revolutionary aspects, Massa Lemu embraces the label and adopts it as his title. For Lemu the old patriot was proud of, and ready to die for fatherland, the “precariot” however is one whose only possession is the unstable and indeterminate terrain of precarity, staking claims and maneuvering in this uncertain landscape. In the age of heightened mobility, <em>PRECARIOT</em> focuses on processes of inspection and scrutiny, labeling and branding to highlight the realities of migration.</p> Sat, 04 May 2013 23:44:40 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - MILAN IMAGE ART FAIR - May 10th, 2013 11:00 AM - 9:00 PM <h3>Opening Times</h3> <p>Friday May 10th  11.00 - 21.00<br /> <br /> Saturday May 11th  11.00 - 21.00<br /> <br />Sunday, May 12th  10.00 - 20.00</p> <h3>Tickets</h3> <div class="visitatori_testoSx"><span class="scuro"> Full-fare ticket  </span><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro">15 €</span></span></div> <div class="visitatori_testoSx"><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro"></span> <br /> 2 Days  </span><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro">21 €</span></span></div> <div class="visitatori_testoSx"><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro"></span> <br /> Reduced rate  </span><span class="scuro">12 € </span><br /> (student less than 26 years, Touring club members, FNAC card, Mediaworld card, groups 10  people )<br /> <br /> <span class="scuro"> Children up to 12 years old  </span><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro">Free Entry</span> <br /> </span></div> <div class="visitatori_testoSx"><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro"> </span></span></div> <h3>Exhibiting Galleries</h3> <div class="visitatori_testoSx"><span class="scuro"><span class="scuro"> </span></span></div> <div class="visitatori_testoSx"> <div class="expo_testoSx"> <div class="expo_moduloPersona" style="border-bottom: medium none;

One of Italy’s most revered modern artists, Lazzari (1900–1981) created poetic abstract compositions, resembling graphs, maps, and musical staffs and notes.</p> Sat, 27 Apr 2013 02:05:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list John Akomfrah - New Art Exchange - May 10th, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p>In this multi-layered three-screen installation created by acclaimed film-maker John Akomfrah , <em>The Unfinished Conversation </em>examines the nature of the visual as triggered across an individual’s memory landscape. With particular reference to identity and race, the film presents academic Stuart Hall’s memories and personal archives, extracted and relocated in an imagined and different time to reflect on the questionable nature of memory itself.</p> <p><em>The Unfinished Conversation </em>premiered at Bluecoat as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2012, NAE are excited to present this work in May 2013!</p> <p>An Autograph ABP Commission. Executive producer Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph ABP. Produced by Lina Gopaul and David Lawson, Smoking Dogs Films Production, in collaboration with Professor Stuart Hall.</p> Sat, 13 Apr 2013 00:31:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Claude Monet - NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) International - May 10th, 2013 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p><em>Monet’s Garden</em> is a stunning exhibition devoted to Claude Monet’s iconic garden at Giverny. Renowned as the ‘father of French Impressionism’, Monet was inspired by his direct experiences of nature, culminating in the ravishing depictions of his lily and flower gardens in the rural property at Giverny, northern France, that became his lifelong obsession. Step into the extraordinary this winter for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see these masterpieces in Australia, exclusive to Melbourne.</p> Wed, 17 Apr 2013 07:31:17 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Julie Shipp - REM Gallery - May 10th, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p>Julie Shipp</p> <p>Artist Statement</p> <p>Asperatus, 2013</p> <p>Asperatus is a series of paintings that capture visual anomalies of light and color in action while allowing sections of the paintings to be more spontaneous to mimic the unpredictable, inexplicable, conflicting forces of nature.   Alluding to a shifting movement in the field or surface, this series implies a more direct confrontation of both nature, and the very nature of painting.</p> <p>Asperatus refers to a cloud formation that is undulating, ominous, and appears as an upside down sea in the sky.  Taken from the Latin verb, aspero, it means 'to make rough'.  These formations may appear after storms surges, and can be disorienting in appearance, but tend to dissipate.  This is similar to the methods used in creating these works; the paint takes an active role on the surface by implying motion and illusionistic space, and multi-directional applications. </p> <p>The light sources often seem intense, and not entirely naturalistic. Colors collide and contrast, while light reflects, illuminates, and separates; fields reveal subtle changes of internal bands of light and color in each layer of paint.  </p> <p>Similar to the 19th century landscape paintings that are influenced by the sublime forces of nature, my paintings become transcendental statements. (Differing greatly from the 19th century painters, however, is the fact that I exclude the actual trappings of identifiable landscape and nature.) The paintings are a statement about my own understanding of temporal existence.  Although we occupy specific times in designated spaces, we are all living in quick flashes and waves: a transitory existence.</p> Fri, 03 May 2013 08:44:15 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list
