SONG

Filed under: Art contemporain, Photographie, Vidéo – Film | Tags: , |

interlude_still-01_web
As an exhibition, Song carries a particular tempo, closer to the time of reading than the time of looking. Alejandro Cesarco creates rhythm in his work by incorporating silences and withholdings: here the moving image works are presented sequentially, gently introducing a pace and flow to the installation and immersing the viewer in an aesthetic that the artist has elsewhere characterized as “muted melodrama.”

L’ensemble de l’exposition « Days are Dogs » opère par composition et recomposition d’archipels d’œuvres – celles de Camille Henrot, dont certaines inédites, mais aussi celles d’autres artistes internationaux, avec lesquels elle entretient un dialogue fécond: David Horvitz, Maria Loboda, Nancy Lupo, Samara Scott et Avery Singer. Le parcours se déroule en sept grandes parties thématiques. Chacune est consacrée à un jour de la semaine, allégorie d’un ensemble d’émotions et d’actions dont les œuvres se font l’écho. Camille Henrot invite également le poète Jacob Bromberg – avec lequel elle a collaboré sur plusieurs de ses œuvres – pour l’écriture des textes accompagnant l’exposition ainsi qu’une œuvre originale.

Les projets de Claire Williams gravitent autour du textile open source, floss software & hardware, des machines à tricoter hackées, du textile électronique et computationnel… et s’inscrivent dans le cadre d’une réflexion plus globale sur la question de la réappropriation des outils numériques. Ses obsessions : la captation de données et leur matérialisation, l’articulation entre langages numériques, sonores et textiles.

DARK ROOM

altblog – Paul Mpagi Sepuya – Darkroom


For Paul Mpagi Sepuya, his medium is as much about disclosure as concealment, the role of the photographer ultimately one of control. Central to his practice is the undisguised and frequently experimental use of mirrors, which draws the viewer’s attention to the images’ photographic artifice, complicating the experience of looking at a subject, while also engendering a mystifying effect.

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

Text by Sonia Dermience : She must be around 18. Her name is Casha. The baby, not yet walking, is eating crisps. In front of me in the train Warsaw-Vienne. The guy in front of me, Polish as well, started to speak right away as well about clubs next to Gare du nord in Brussels, where he works on construction sites… Sunny frisk November day, 7 hours train as a romantic old fashioned way of traveling. They left the cabin and came back. He is divorced with two kids, he showed me photos with his ex wife. He is going back to the village. His car is in Belgium, a black Audi i saw in photos with his tattoos on his breast, symbols of success and sexyness. He is cute. Young. You can feel cosyness in this cabin with them and one other girl who does not speak as she must feel ashamed of a possible closeness with unexpected encounters, random people. She speaks to give me wifi and i realize she just doesn’t want any contact with the others, who she must see as lower class. The young mother has a beautiful voice, elegant, dressed in black. The baby just made a mess with another pack of crisps that was next to my seat. He is sitting on the floor trying to eat them. Now strolling around with the mother who seems happy as much as the baby, both warm people. Looking through the window i think about contraception and abortion. The land is flat. Small trees. I type with one finger on my phone. Thinking about that photo i want to make of Jean-Pierre pissing on a car at night with the flash. A naked woman riding the bronze crocodile in Botanical garden would be too political maybe? Emeline could also just sit inside the car at night. A kind of Vogue magazine reportage flash night, colors, characters questioning belonging and possession of private spaces and people. This guy in front of me should be part of the shoot. He wears a green Adidas jacket with jeans perfect short hair shaped in the back. He just asked the name to the other girl i understood replied Sandra. She doesn’t want anything to do with a too young mother and a construction worker. The Guy just made a sign to Casha to go back to toilet but i don’t know if he mimicked blow job or cigarette. She puts lipstick on. He tries to sleep. The baby is learning English with the phone repeating ‘Hello, how are you?’ Then record her own voice repeat and laugh to finally switch to heavy techno. This pink pullover makes me look fat in association with that wool leather brown skirt. The grey leggings are ok with the boots and skirt, still the top ruins the ensemble. If i put lipstick they will think i want to have sex. Or that i am an old wicked lady. The baby is dressed in pink like my lipstick, that is very comforting, soft pink named rouge pure couture. I put it on and feel already so full of reassuring intimacy in this cosy warm cabin full of sun and beautiful people. I have to pee. I realize i am with the sexiest people of the train… Even if i ate lots of cakes in Warsaw and have my menstruation, i think about sex when i close my eyes. The guy is asleep. The baby as well. Sandra as well; can’t see Casha making photos of her pack of crisps. First stop: a city of houses and blocs, no one would choose to live here if you are not from here and still half of Polish population believe they have a problem with foreigners. Police in the train. Police is back. Two young guys.

Rinko Kawauchi dévoile une série de quarante photographies réalisées dans les environs de Kumamoto une ville du sud du Japon. L’originalité du projet réside dans le fait qu’elle ait demandé à des habitants de la région de lui révéler un endroit particulièrement important pour eux, un endroit de mémoire, chargé de souvenirs.
