Paul Spez in collaboration with Fiu mano Projects is delighted to present \;'Recollection of a Dwelled Location (First Attempt)' by emerging talent\, Benedetta Martini

\n

Artist and photographer Benedetta Mart ini is currently studying Fine Art at Camberwell College of Arts. Specialising in photography\, her work explores the meanings that w e attribute to our sense of place. Through installations incorporating movi ng image as well as analogue photography\, she investigate s the qualities of objects and their component materials\, highlighting the relationships they have with their environment - and subsequently with our selves.

\n

Alongside her studio practice\, Benedetta Martini curates < strong>(CON)TEMPORARY\, a series of exhibitions that delve further into the meanings that we attribute to our environment\, particularly rega rding the role and significance of art in its relation to the surrounding s pace. Among her influences she cites the work of the artists Monika Sosnows ka\, William Leavitt and Thea Djordjaze\, Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri and film director Michelangelo Antonioni\, with whom she shares a profound interest concerning concepts relating to spatial awareness.

\n

In this\, her first solo exh ibition\, Benedetta Martini will be presenting a sculptural install ation using the language and materials of modernism blended with a rchitectural elements through which she portrays a stripped down and abstract urban utopia. Inspired by elements stemming from her ow n memories and recollections of specific places\, through the reconstructio n of particular geographical contexts\, she engages us in a discourse on th e poetics of our experience of &ndash\; and our relationship to &ndash\; a sense of place.

The highlight of the \;Red Africa \;season\, \; Things Fall Apart \;will feature artists\, filmmakers and grou ps from across Africa\, Asia\, Europe and North America. Drawing on film\, photography\, propaganda\, and public art\, the exhibition presents interdi sciplinary reflections on African connections to the Soviet Union and relat ed countries.

\n

Curated by Mark Nash\, the show gathers the responses of contemporary artists to different aspects of Soviet and related nations&rsquo\; interests in Africa\, particularly f ocused on ambitions to influence the development of political structures th rough film and art.

\n

The exhibition re aches back to the beginning of the Soviet era through the work of Russian-A merican artist Yevgeniy Fiks. Fiks explores representations of black people in Soviet press and propaganda as early as 1920\, which he presents throug h \;The Wayland Rudd Archive. The exhibition also re-examines relations hips built during the height of the Cold War\, including Tito&rsquo\;s 1961 visit to Africa.

\n

Contemporary traces of communist street art and propaganda are captured by Jo Ractliffe and Ki luanji Kia Henda\, revealing the lasting legacy of liberation struggles on the continent. In addition\, the work of Onejoon Che critically examines th e legacy of North Korea&rsquo\;s Mansudae Art Studio which produced sociali st realist artworks such as \;The African Renaissance.

\n

Our Africa \;by filmmaker Alexander Markov uses footage from the Russian State Film and Photo archive to expose the me chanisms behind the creation of of Soviet propaganda films that sought to r ecord the expansion of 'glorious socialism' across the African continent.\n

Things Fall Apart \;is a collaboration with Iwalewahaus\, University of Bayreuth\, where it will tra vel in May 2016. The exhibition takes its title from Chinua Achebe&rsquo\;s 1958 classic of post-colonial fiction\, seen by many as the archetypal mod ern African novel in English\, which reflects on the devastating impact of colonialism in Africa. Our exhibition uses this association to focus on a s imilar loss of utopian perspective following the end of the cold war and co llapse of the Soviet Union and eastern bloc.

Join us for the debut of two n ewly commissioned performances from London based emerging artists Lea Colle t &\; Marios Stamatis\, and Laura Yuile. Part talent show\, part weather report\, the evening will parody the mass production of culture and off th e shelf experiences generated by reality television and the production of a global uniform public space.

\n

Lea Col let &\; Marios Stamatis \;work with notions of performativity and po wer structures in correlation with contemporary rituals\, props and bodies in action. \;But I Have to Say\, You Were in Your Element on the St airs \; \;uses the televised Game Show  \;as a format for intertwining characters\, roles and performers to push against hierarchies of individual and collective labour and its results. In collaboration with& nbsp\;.2dot \;(Riccardo Tarocco &\; Antó\;nio Branco)\, the pe rformance evolves in a combined front and back stage set at the same time. The juxtaposition of designated on air and off air spaces allows the blurri ng of real and simulated emotions that are transformed into pop songs\, tec hno dancing and reality television dialogues.

\n

In response to \;Use/User/Used/\, \;Laura Yuile&n bsp\;presents \;Cloud\, Seed\, Silver\, \;a new performanc e in dialogue with current trends in public sculpture\, exploring conflicti ng ideas of what we perceive as &lsquo\;generic&rsquo\; and what we acknowl edge as &lsquo\;meaningful&rsquo\;. Largescale globally circulating sculptu ral forms will be explored through notions of timespace compression\, fragm entation and complexity; tapping into the conversation around exhaustion th at runs throughout the exhibition and asking questions of how today's netwo rked society exhausts both forms and resources.

Serious performance art\, port raiture\, or just simply posing for the camera? What does is it mean to per form \;for \;the \;camera? \;

\n

Photography has been used to capture performances since i ts invention &ndash\; from the stars of the \;Victorian \;stage to the art happenings of the 1960s\, and today&rsquo\;s trend for \;selfie s. \;

\n

With over 50 seminal photog raphers on display\, the exhibition explores the relationship between photo graphy and performance\, engaging with serious\, provocative and sensationa l topics\, as well as humour\, improvisation and irony. It shows how photog raphs have captured performances by important artists including \;Yves Klein \;and \;Yayoi Kusama\, and ground-breaking collaborations bet ween photographers\, performers and dancers. It looks at how artists includ ingFrancesca Woodman\, Erwin Wurm and others have used photography as a sta ge on which to perform\, and how figures from \;Cindy Sherman \;and  \;Hannah Wilke \;toMarcel Duchamp \;and Samuel Fosso have used photography to explore \;identity. \;

\n

From marketing and self-promotion\, to the investigation of gende r and identity\, to experiments with the self-portrait\, \;Performi ng for the Camera \;brings together over 500 images shown in serie s\, including vintage prints\, large scale works\, marketing posters and ar tists working with Instagram. It is a wide-ranging exploration of how perfo rmance artists use photography and how photography is in itself a \;per formance.
