altblog – Gabriele Beveridge
Gabriele Beveridge’s materials frequently derive from sites of commerce, particularly those where we prepare and process our bodies, or more accurately where we pay others to perform labour on our surfaces. Display and presentation are persistent themes throughout the practice. Beveridge includes found photographic imagery, cropped posters and promotional material found in hair and nail salons, alongside photograms which are a new addition to the artist’s lexicon.

altblog — Kader Attia — macval
Kader Attia who has dedicated himself to research into the power relationships that continue to affect the post-colonial world, reflecting on the processes of domination that pass through the urban space and the way in which the migrant body is affected and politicised. Using documentary film, sculpture, collage and the construction of environmentally intense installations, his work dialogues with the memory of modern architecture in Africa, its appropriation through this of the history of the local and vernacular architecture and its continued repressive interference in the lives of the population.

altblog – TR Ericsson
The exhibition is part of “Crackle & Drag,” which is the umbrella title of TR Ericsson’s practice since 2003 and has developed into an inspired chronicle of a rustbelt family in post-industrial America. What begins as a soft, searing, and complex portrait of intimacy and Americana evokes universal themes of love, loss and ephemerality.
