Frieze on the cheap: Frieze Sounds   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Keren Cytter, Cally Spooner, Hannah Weinberger at Frieze London October 15th - October 18th
Posted 10/16/14

Frieze Art Fair is very much not free. A day ticket will cost you £33 this year. If you want to pop in after work, a 5–7 PM entry is £15. Heaven forbid you want to bring a child. Doing so will set you back £21, even if they sleep through it. Jake Chapman recently caused controversy by stating in public that children shouldn’t be taken to see contemporary art because they don't get it. In the case of Frieze, I’d have to agree with him—it's unlikely to be worth spe... [more]

Robots Lost at Sea: Tracking an Artwork Adrift in the Atlantic Ocean  
by
9/24/14 Posted 9/24/14

On September 9th, a robot was released into the Gulf of Mexico, set adrift in the Gulf Stream. Off the southern tip of Portugal its transatlantic counterpart awaits sendoff into the strong Canary Current this week. Once offshore, these passive robots—floating spheres one-meter in diameter with sensors submerged below sea level—will be left on their own, without human intervention. Their mission: to unite in the middle of the Atlantic, carried only by currents and the forces of nat... [more]

Interview with Robert Taite  
by
9/22/14 Posted 9/22/14

Winnipeg, Sept. 2014: Robert Taite generates content through painting. Visual data culled through transitions, his paintings seem coy or perhaps indifferent to what Donald Judd described as “specific” in his seminal 1965 essay Specific Objects. While influenced by post war conceptual art, Taite’s own work feels of the moment with a cut-and-paste aesthetic; sources are loose and refreshed often. His practice prompts associations with a continuum of artists playing with architecture... [more]

Stories in Song and Shadow: An Interview with Sahra Motalebi

New York, Aug. 2014: Sahra Motalebi’s multimedia performance operetta, Intangible Heritages, Belief's Demise, staged at New York’s Sculpture Center in February, told the stories of neglected archetypical characters. Among the characters that Motalebi conjured from an ancient Eastern literary heritage were a prostitute, a warrior-prisoner, and an elderly recluse. She lyrically presented their interlaced narratives while they moved through a projected shadow play praised by curator Ka... [more]

When art explores the fabric of matter. A studio visit with Amalia Del Ponte  
by
7/28/14 Posted 7/28/14

Milan, Jul. 2014: It happened by chance. About two months ago I heard about the new donation of a work of art to the permanent collection of the Museum of XX Century Art in Milan: the piece was a sculpture by Italian artist Amalia Del Ponte. Her name was totally new to me. Curious, I peeked into her resume—some solo exhibitions in a few Milan galleries, especially in the 70s and the 80s, and the First Prize for Sculpture at the São Paulo Biennale in 1973. How do you feel?, the work a... [more]

Posted 7/2/13

Sounding the Body Electric is an exhibition of codes, distortions, intermedia translations, ruptured communication systems and altered technologies. Tracing a network of Eastern European avant-garde experimentation that was at times alternately cultivated and censored by state powers, the exhibition offers rare access to a body of audio-visual work that reflects both the anarchic spirit of the era and the socio-political realities of life behind the Iron Curtain. Certain key innovations from the first half o... [more]

Rendering the Distorted Presence

Rendering the Distorted Presence St. Jacobs Church. Stockholm. Jan 2010. Curated by Monica Sand. Sound installation based on Henry Lefebvre’s rhythmanalysis theory. Social environment has its own rhythms through sound, space and time: its own soundscapes. Sensory events of the city construct the present. And the way to recognise and understand the presence -where we find the rhythm-, is to analyse these stimuli. By changing the present we create a new presence. By changing the soundscape (time, dislocation, overlaying, pitch... [more]

Passion and Resurrection Convento de las Madres Mercedarias de don Juan de Alarcón. Madrid 2010. (Curated by Galeria Espacio Valverde) One of the great opportunities you have when you perform in a church is to work with its special acoustics. The resonance of space, the diffuse candle light ambient, the feeling of a deep and uncanny atmosphere. In this installation I decided to hide the loudspeakers as much as possible, as well as myself. Sound projection came from one side of the transept, behind the... [more]
