Interview with Benjamin Swaim

12/5/09

Dec. 2009: In mid-November, I visited French artist Benjamin Swaim at his studio at Usine Chapal in Montreuil. We talked about 40 Guns, his recent project and publication with the Maison Rouge, Paris, and his participation in “Time is a Sausage,” a group show currently on display at Domobaal, London. We looked at works from Salembô, a series of large-scale brightly colored abstract canvases, and a series of abstract paintings in black and white, Les sculptures de ma mère. As we talked about the imag... [more]

Fabrice Gygi at Galerie Chantal Crousel September 12th, 2009 - October 24th, 2009
Posted 9/19/09

    Currently representing Switzerland in the 53rd Venice Bienniale, Fabrice Gygi has participated in numerous international exhibitions, showing his work in Paris for the first time 10 years ago. His sculptural work pairs a precise aesthetic with suggestive, at times aggressive, materials and arrangements — shiny metal spikes hung from the ceiling or a network of conveyor belts, for example. For his current show at Chantal Crousel, French critic Christophe Kihm’s press release divides the work Gygi is showing at the g... [more]

Posted 8/13/09

      Palais de Tokyo’s current exhibition takes its title from the mysterious shortwave radio antennas that emit seemingly random series of numbers, tones and melodies from various points around the globe. Many believe these “Spy Number Stations” have been in use since World War I, and have increased in prevalence since the 1990s. Most uninitiated listeners presume the stations are run by national governments as a means to communicate with their spies working around the globe. Following the pr... [more]

Laurent Grasso at Centre Pompidou June 17th, 2009 - September 14th, 2009
Posted 8/3/09

  Winning the 2008 Prix Marcel Duchamp, Laurent Grasso confirmed his position in the French scene and earned a solo exhibition at the Centre Pompidou’s Espace 315. Presenting an entirely new body of work — video, sound, two historic antennas and an oil painting — Grasso seems to have moved beyond the obliquely sci-fi videos he has become known for, and into a more complex exploration of objects, space and memory. In the center of the darkened space, Grasso has positioned a hulking metal structure — a replica of Bell Telephone’s Holmdel Horn Anten... [more]

Posted 8/3/09

  On mini-billboards circling Jeu de Paume, bordering the Tuileries and the western face of Place de Concorde, Martin Parr’s Small World series (1986-2005) captures the international tourist class taking in sites from the Grand Canyon to Pisa. Opening just as the Parisians started their annual exodus from the city — temporarily leaving the French capital to the descent of international visitors — “Planet Parr” reveals the breadth of the English artist’s practice as a photographer, as well as parall...

Artslant Team went out to discover more art on Wednesday the 6th, and found our way to two great openings. The first at Brachfeld Gallery, a solo exhibition from Michel Perot, recent graduate of L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, the show was put together by independent curator Lillian Davis: He uses a subdued palette to portray landscapes on the verge of the imaginary: ...and is particularly interested in the architectural / natural / historical.
