PORTRAIT OF A FAMILY

Filed under: Art contemporain | Tags: , |

altblog – TAKAHIRO KUDO – Portrait of a family © Archiraar
The series plays with Japanese family registry system. In the first stage of the series Takahiro Kudo treats « Koseki » : Japanese family registry system, and his partner’s « Familienbuch » : German family registry, as two family portraits. Despite of the fact they serve the same (or least similar) purpose, the depiction of a family unit and the visual outcomes appear differently, because of the cultural contexts they are integrated. The pieces question the ideas of a family formulated by different authorities and their alterations and limits as the depicting mechanisms in the age of globalization and social media.

The main objective of the new artspace o v project is to confront various disciplines and artistic languages in a shared environment to generate a sense of curiosity and critical thinking. The Brussels-based architecture firm Lhoas and Lhoas has been invited to design a unique space where Olivier Vrankenne aims to create interactions and previously unseen connections between different artistic fields, based on mutual dialogues beyond traditional art histories.

For its inaugural project, OV brings together Richard Nonas’ art with selected objects from Native American Art and Culture

MICHEL MAZZONI: 3 EXHIBITIONS

Filed under: Art contemporain, Photographie | Tags: , , |

altblog-michel-mazzoni
Je m’intéresse aux formes données à la réalité à travers ses représentations, à la manière dont l’image leur donne corps et consistance. Dans mon rapport à l’image, je marque une certaine distance avec un medium prompt à revendiquer un pouvoir informatif. Le dit ou le non-dit, l’ellipse, représentent dans mes travaux le moyen de questionner la construction du sens et les formes de saisie du monde. Michel Mazzoni

For its next exhibition ‘xerox’, Société returns to the analogue world of copy art, to confront the two dimensional exhibition space of printed matter with the three dimensional one of the exhibition space. From LAb[au]’s entropic machine, Carsten Nicolai’s sounds of transcoded information flows to Tiago Duarte’s residu roll, Hanne Darboven’s columns and rows, to Dieudonné Cartier’s sculptural interpretation of station for art by fax, … all projects interpret the realm of paper and ink.

PAPERWORK AND THE WILL OF CAPITAL

Simon-2016-24th-Street-Install-8


As the starting points of Paperwork and the Will of Capital, Taryn Simon drew inspiration from George Sinclair’s 19th century horticultural study – a book containing dried grass specimens that inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution – and historical photographs of the signings of political accords between leaders of the 44 countries present at the 1944 United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.

ULAY: COME ON

Ulay_MOT 2
MOT International presents Ulay’s first solo exhibition in Brussels. Referencing his 1970s series Anagramatic Bodies, new photo collages feature German actresses Nina Hoss and Iris Berben, together with models Lily McMenamy and Stella Lucia, while works from the artist’s photographic archive cumulatively recount his nomadic, itinerant life over the past forty years. The exhibition includes rarely-presented projects produced during his career defining collaboration with Marina Abramović, such as the artist’s extensive personal documentation of 1988’s The Great Wall Walk in diaries, drawings and a pair of seven metre scrolls, in addition to photographs recording the artist’s time in the Central Australian Desert (1979) with members of the aboriginal Pintubi community.

SCULPTURES

altblog – Paulien Follings
« Loin du ready-made, de l’objet trouvé, des matières ou des objets du commerce détournés de leur état premier pour en évoquer un autre, les sculptures de Paulien Föllings, constituent de véritables artefacts constitués d’une matière reconnue par la tradition, le plâtre. Déployé historiquement pour représenter. De ce matériau connoté, il ne vient rien de ce qu’on aurait pu s’attendre à y trouver. »

altblog – Benoît Maire – 2016
La première exposition personnelle en Belgique de Benoît Maire donne d’emblée une impression aiguë de classicisme et de réflexion contemporaine. D’une part, des peintures sur toile sont accrochées au mur, d’autre part quelques sculptures sur des socles viennent interroger le dispositif général d’une exposition.
