ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 - fig-2 - October 12th - October 18th <div class="text-center content ng-scope"> <div class="content text"> <p class="text-left">&nbsp;<span style="font-family: helvetica;">For his week at fig-2, FOS brings together his two prolific practices within art and design. His solo show &lsquo;Maggie Margaret lives&rsquo; is a juxtaposition of artworks and design objects, produced for his recent solo exhibition in Copenhagen and for fashion brand C&eacute;line. &lsquo;Maggie Margaret lives&rsquo; emerges as a constructed interior that initiates dialogue between art and design, displaying their malleable yet distinctive natures. The premises is inhabited by a character performed by actress Joanna Bergin, who appears and disappears at random. Her script, written by the artist in collaboration with Deborah Birch, oscillates between the pragmatic and the abstract, which attempts to disseminate the public memories left against objects, in this specific case within art and design. The installation becomes a site where objects are activated through the relationship between them and their owner, the character, as well as through their relationship with the audience who act as witnesses.</span></p> <span style="font-family: helvetica;">fig-2 would like to thank&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">The Embassy of Denmark</a>&nbsp;in the United Kingdom for their kind support to the exhibition.&nbsp;</span></div> <div class="content text">&nbsp;</div> <div class="content text">&nbsp;</div> <div class="content text"><strong><span style="font-family: helvetica;">FOS CV</span></strong></div> </div> <div class="text-center content ng-scope"> <div class="content text"> <p>FOS or Thomas Poulsen (b. 1971, Copenhagen, DK) lives and works in Copenhagen.

Through the symbolic use of bodies, objects and gestures he navigates the idiosyncrasies that permeate the &lsquo;lifestyles&rsquo; of today. Avoiding direct commentary, Richardson employs images of the absurd to renegotiate the strangeness of contemporary existence, in an approach that disarms through dark humour and the staging of infantile wonder.</p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>HEADBONE</em>, Richardson&rsquo;s Invites exhibition, has as its central component a new single-channel video, extending both the technical ambition and emotional complexity of his practice. The video is presented alongside sculptural objects linked to its production and themes, all displayed in an installation constructed from foil-covered board that requires viewers to weave a route through to a final &lsquo;chamber&rsquo;.</p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;">As with previous work <em>Rehearsal </em>(2014), Richardson creates 3D digital models of his own body, and the bodies of others, which he then animates. Bound in everyday detritus and rendered as hollow shells around which the viewer swoops and pans, the figures appear comic or mute, and full of unspecified psychological resonance. In <em>HEADBONE </em>Richardson emphasises the materiality of the sources he captures, using chintzy patterned furniture, hand tools, mobile phones and crumpled packaging as the objects that adorn or anchor the figures.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sound is a vital component of <em>HEADBONE</em>, with a specially recorded version of the song &lsquo;Dem Bones&rsquo; acting as soundtrack. A children&rsquo;s favourite, its lyrical origins are in the Book of Ezekiel from the Old Testament in which the prophet has a vision of God breathing life back into scattered human remains. Richardson&rsquo;s ambitious and distinctive work suggests unexpected connections across different threads of cultural history, imbuing current technological possibilities with echoes of the past. It points to a kind of nostalgic future and the unfulfilled potentialities of the present.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Charles Richardson</strong>&nbsp;(b.1979, Leek, UK) completed an MA in Fine Art at Slade School of Art in 2014. He was the winner of the 2014&nbsp;<em>Saatchi New Sensations</em>&nbsp;prize for his video installation<em>Rehearsal</em>.

For their third appearance at Wilkinson Gallery, the ensemble will form a sonic triptych for the performance of&nbsp;<em>Autumn Reverb</em>&nbsp;(2015) a series of related compositions by Fallows for prepared and treated electric guitars ranging from mono-chordal sound canvases layered with overtones, through subtle shifting moiré patterns of drones and gestural sound-paintings, to raucous excursions in tone-bending noise that conjure up the presence of imaginary instruments.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />Related works by Colin Fallows include&nbsp;<em>Colourfield For Strings,</em>&nbsp;originally produced as an immersive sound installation in conjunction with the exhibition of Mark Rothko&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Seagram Murals</em>&nbsp;at Tate Liverpool (2009). The installation utilised a dense sonic mix of sustained electric guitar recordings by Fallows and Will Sergeant (Echo &amp; The Bunnymen). Further versions of Colourfield For Strings include: music for the play Red (by John Logan) about Rothko, with accompanying sound installation at EuroTheater Central, Bonn, Germany (2012-13); and a one-hour radio programme for ORF Kunstradio, Vienna, Austria (2013) for listeners to experience the piece via three radio sources simultaneously.&nbsp;<em>Colourfield For Strings</em>&nbsp;is recorded as a limited edition (333 copies) artist&rsquo;s multiple, arranged in four eighteen-minute movements on two-disc 180-gram vinyl. Optional twin turn-table systems can be used to playback both discs simultaneously in various combinations and in vari-speed modes on single or twin turn-table systems.

The focused exhibition will present a culmination of work spanning the photographer&rsquo;s career to date; from early beginnings in North London to extensive social documentary, unsparing war reportage, haunting Somerset vistas and contemplative still lifes. The retrospective will map over five decades of visual history, bringing together a broad selection of McCullin&rsquo;s most powerful and unforgettable images, alongside a series of compositions of the Somerset landscape he calls home. In addition to his photographic oeuvre McCullin will present a collection of personal memorabilia acquired throughout his lifetime, featuring the Nikon camera that notoriously saved his life from a sniper bullet during the Vietnam war.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The comprehensive showcase will present a chronological selection of the photographer&rsquo;s most poignant and best known reportage. The exhibition commences with a selection of the photojournalist&rsquo;s early professional photography, featuring his first published image in The Observer dating back to 15 February 1959. &lsquo;The Guvnors&rsquo; was taken in Finsbury Park and marked the start of McCullin&rsquo;s passionate documentation of London gang culture and impoverished urban Britain throughout the sixties and seventies. His work during this time created a harsh spotlight on the reality of life post-war, including the stark landscapes of the industrial North, the increasing unemployment and homeless levels in the capital and growing unrest across the country.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Don McCullin has witnessed some of the most harrowing humanitarian disasters of the last half century, having covered every major conflict in his adult lifetime. His assignments included: the Vietnam and Biafra War, Northern Irish &lsquo;Troubles&rsquo;, the construction of the Berlin Wall, the Lebanese civil war, Belgian Congo, the Russian invasion of Afghanistan and the fall of Phnom Penh. Never one to grow complacent, the veteran war correspondent travelled, alongside The Times journalist Anthony Loyd, on his latest assignment to cover the war in Aleppo, Syria at the age of 77. McCullin&rsquo;s war documentation is undisputedly his most famous, obsessively drawn to the brutality of combat and its savage aftermath his images have adorned national newspapers and international magazines, contributing significantly to the widespread growth of anti-war feeling across the country. In 1977 he was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and in 1993 he became the first photojournalist to be awarded&nbsp;CBE.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Having immersed himself in many of the most remote regions of the world, McCullin&rsquo;s interest in travel and primitive communities has naturally encompassed a large proportion of his professional profile. The photographer has dedicated a lot of his personal time to far-flung regions of Africa, India and the Middle East. Between 2003 and 2004, McCullin travelled from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia to the valley of the Omo River leading down to the border with Sudan.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For the last two decades McCullin has turned to look at the land around him, namedly the Somerset village in which he was evacuated during the Blitz. Often referring to the sweeping rural landscape as his greatest salvation, the accomplished photographer demonstrates the full mastery of his medium with stark black and white images resonating with human emotion whilst retaining the honesty and grit synonymous with his earlier works. For me photography was originally nothing to do with war, it was to do with the beautiful, Don has stated when asked about his diverse practice, and with these powerful compositions of wild heavens and flooded countryside he has finally come full circle and able to seek redemption in his surroundings.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>About the Artist</strong><br />Don McCullin is one of the most important war photographers of the late twentieth century, best known for his broad war reportage and critical social documentation. Between 1966 and 1984, he worked for The Sunday Times Magazine under Editor-in-Chief Harold Evans and Art Editor David King, it was during this time he released his most celebrated images. He has since expanded his oeuvre with independent trips to India, Africa and the Middle East, continuing to raise awareness of global humanatarian issues and war-torn areas with unflinching honesty.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 1977 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, followed by the Royal Photographic Society&rsquo;s Special 150th Anniversary Medal and Honorary Fellowship (HonFRPS) in 2003. In 1993 he became the first photojournalist to be honoured with a&nbsp;CBE&nbsp;in recognition of his sustained and significant contribution to photojournalism. He has since been awarded a number of Honorary Doctorates and Degrees from The University of Bath, University of Bradford, Open University and University of Gloucestershire. In 2006 he received the Cornell Capa Infinity Award for distinguished achievement in photography&rdquo; at the International Center of Photography, New York. In 2013, McCullin was honoured with an exhibition at Visa Pour L&rsquo;Image, the International festival of photojournalism in Perpignan.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Critically acclaimed solo exhibitions include: Don McCullin: Sleeping with Ghosts, Barbican Centre, London (1998); Photographs 1961-2001, Maison Europ&eacute;enne de la Photographie, Paris (2001); Una Trayectoria Heroica, Canal de Isabell II Cultural Center, Madrid (2008); Shaped By War, exhibited at the Imperial War Museum North, Salford (2010), Victoria Art Gallery, Bath (2010), and the Imperial War Museum, London (2012); Don McCullin: Platinum, Hamiltons Gallery, London (2011); The Impossible Peace, Palazzo Magnani, Reggio Emilia, Italy (2011), Don McCullin, Tate Britain (2012); Eighty, Hamiltons Gallery, London (2015).</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Notable publications include: Hearts of Darkness: Photographs by Don McCullin, Secker and Warburg, (1980); Beirut: A City in Crisis, New English Library (1983); Sleeping with Ghosts: A Life&rsquo;s Work in Photography, Jonathan Cape, (1994); India, Jonathan Cape, (1999); Unreasonable Behaviour: An Autobiography, Don McCullin with Lewis Chester, Vintage Books, (2002); Don McCullin in Africa, Jonathan Cape (2005); Don McCullin in England, Jonathan Cape (2007); Southern Frontiers: A Journey Across the Roman Empire, Jonathan Cape (2010).</p> Mon, 05 Oct 2015 07:25:50 +0000 - Hauser & Wirth Somerset - October 19th 11:30 AM - 4:30 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">&lsquo;It is the artist&rsquo;s job to try to dislocate older media into postures that permit attention to the new. To this end, the artist must ever play and experiment with new means of arranging experience, even though the majority of his audience may prefer to remain fixed in their old perceptual attitudes.&rsquo; (McLuhan, 2011)</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In response to the exhibition&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">&lsquo;Jenny Holzer.
