20131213152518-podium_2013_huilesurtoile_130x195cm Watchlist Artist: Maude Maris  
by
Maude Maris at Galerie Isabelle Gounod 12/13/13 Posted 12/13/13

Let us say once again, after a few others, that Maude Maris makes objects, that she moulds them, and then places the shapes she has cast into small boxes, models that are open on one side, that she then, under given lighting conditions, takes photographs of her compositions, and that it is finally from these photographs that she paints her paintings. Maude Maris’s paintings thus undergo a process or, rather, the implementing of a setup which may recall Giorgio Morandi’s. We can su... [more]

Posted 7/4/14

The lights went out for LIGHT BREAKS on Sunday night at Project Art Lounge’s first international exhibition. But as Silvia Sinha, Michele Schuff and Kamila Najbrtová return to work in their studios at home, the positive feedback in Basel continues to pour in.

In two days, nearly 100 visitors engaged the artists in an... [more]

La structure happe dès l’entrée de la chapelle, ce que réclament ses dimensions de 3mètres quasiment multipliés en sa base triangulaire alors même que sa forme éveille des souvenirs….Sa structure flotte autant que sa structure qui l’enserre le lui laisse faire, car en toile à beurre triviale, elle garde de la transparence et de la légèreté. Une face du tissu se soulève sur un seuil qui... [more]

by
Sarah Tritz at Galerie Anne Barrault 9/13/13 Posted 9/13/13

When visiting Sarah Tritz’s exhibition, everyone is implicitly invited to choose his or her own way. Established categories are of no use to hierarchize and organize the shapes a priori. You must survey the exhibition rather than try to read it. Then you recognize materials (metal, wood, canvas), gestures (bending, welding, cutting, binding), painted images, sculptured ones (or both at the same time), here a face, there an abstraction. These greatly heterogeneous objects and perceptions... [more]

Elina Brotherus at gb agency 6/26/13 Posted 6/26/13

Annunciation, a new solo show by Elina Brotherus at gb agency, is also the title of a new series of photographs initiated in 2009. This work retraces Elina Brotherus' work back to photographs stemming from her own personal experience and her will to put on stage a subject still taboo: infertility. Alongside these unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant and while she was staying in New York, Elina Brotherus realized two films: Wrong Face and Francesca Woodman's Aunts shot on 16mm. Unlike her photog... [more]

20130620172620-gaga J'accused: Orlan Takes Gaga to Court for $31.7 million  
by
6/20/13 Posted 6/20/13

They say the highest form of flattery is imitation. They were wrong. The highest form of flattery is eight figures and the right to say, officially, that Gaga comes to you for tips. French artist Orlan is taking Lady Gaga to court for as much, claiming the Mother Monster stole her look. Lady Gaga was not, as Orlan claims, "born this way." Rather, she plagiarized every bit of her third album from Orlan, which is why she's suing for 7.5 percent of the profits, or $31.7 million. In an interview wi... [more]
