That day, the Yellow Emperor showed the poet his palace. They left behind, in long succession, the first terraces on the west which descend, like the steps of an almost measureless amphitheater, to a paradise or garden whose metal mirrors and intricate juniper hedges already prefigured the labyrinth. They lost themselves in it, gaily at first, as if condescending to play a game, but afterwards not without misgiving, for its straight avenues were subject to a curvature, ever so slight, but con...

Posted 12/14/10

In this group exhibition at Gerhardsen Gerner, twelve artists investigate contemporary attitudes toward nature.In their celebrated text "Dialektik der Aufklärung / Dialectic of Enlightenment” (1944), Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer write that “the fully enlightened Earth radiates disaster triumphant”. While this insight is now more than half a century old, it still rings true. We live in an age of disappearance: in a world with no blank spots left on the map, we are more likely to see somethi...

Posted 8/10/10

For FischGrätenMelkStand – the final project at Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin – the artist John Bock has developed a masterful meta-structure within which he installs works by 63 artists. An eleven-meter-tall walk-in steel construction creates a range of spatial situations over four levels, linking the individual works into a kind of Gesamtkunstwerk, or total artwork. Unlike the classic white cube, this scenario offers the works on show anything but a neutral setting. Within a structure t... [more]

The power of the absurd to make a serious comment on society has long been used as a device by artists to confront and entice audiences. It is deployed by John Bock in his new installation Curve-Vehicle incl. - Man-(.), comprised of a film screening of one of his ‘lectures’ - a live performance in the space using actors interacting with sculptural elements. The vehicle itself is a futuristic, motorised mobile home made up of a tower of pods, each with some semblance of a living sp... [more]

  German Artist John Bock’s fifth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery is difficult to summarize.  Consisting of a two-channel video projection, a large submarine-like metal contraption and associated video, a series of hanging “soft sculptures” reminiscent of the jumbled, nostalgic pages of a scrap book, and a lecture-dance-performance which took place on opening night and will replay in the form of a slide-projection installation throughout the run of the exhibition, Bock’s occupation of th...
