CONTRIBUTORS  ARTiculAction Art Review // Special Edition 2016

As Constantin Brancusi stated once, "what is real is not the external form, but the essence of things: it is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating its exterior surface."

For this special edition of ARTiculAction we had the chance to discuss about the relationship between art, perception, socially driven projects and unconventional aesthetics with twelve amazing artists from the contemporary scene, whose works show that the object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.

Speisekino Moabit 2017 #4 - food & footage + exhibition
Siemensstraße 27 Berlin 10551

Curator: Lýdia Pribišová

ZK/U - Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik is pleased to present the group exhibition 'Autostop'.
For this project, various artists from around Europe, actively engaging in hitchhiking, were asked to present a work connected with this topic. The project consists of videos, performances, photographs, objects, film screenings, texts and discussion.

Participating Artists:
Konstantin Bojanov, Jascha Fibich (Tramprennen - a hitchhiking race across Europe), Family Worm (Judit Fischer, Miklós Mécs, András Zalavári), Oto Hudec, Andrea Kalinová, Patrick Laviolette, Jűrgen Rendl, Frauke Zeller & David Harris Smith (hitchBOT)

The exhibition is supported by the Slovak Art Council.

'Food and Footage' is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union and is part of Shared Cities: Creative Momentum (SCCM).

4Th International Performance Art Weekend
Allerstraße 38 Berlin 12049

International artists create a two-day high-energy event with an international context by presenting their work in an hourly schedule throughout the weekend.
The actions follow creating a connection between the public open space of the Schillerkiez with the private indoor space of Luisa Catucci Gallery.
Performers and viewers will be taking the inside to the outside and the outside to the inside.
The power of momentary impulses and the power of intervention with space and time, and the encompassing mix of genres and disciplines create the action weekend to become an unforeseeable overall picture of Performances where the threshold of categories merges.
Material and conceptual structures are absent and the viewers meet with their own interpretative freedom.
A world within a world where one main characteristic dominates: the transformation of ideas, redirecting the expectation level for completeness into an permissiveness for surprise. Artists and viewers alike experience the amenable possibilities of dis-categorization between performing art and fine art.
Artist next to Artist and its non-stopping continuity of actions and movement through spaces, gallery and most of all public, unexpected urban environments of Neukölln’s everyday life situations. Pavements transform into exciting, temporary platforms for feet and heads and the pedestrian’s stride is being interrupted.
The idea that the limitations of private and public are being met and may be are distorted, at that threshold open the borders of countries and foreign cultures, the moment when artists of different nationalities engage on Cell63 as a unique, international experienced art platform.

SCINTILLATION - Aqua Aura solo exhibition

Coming soon  To celebrate our anniversary we have prepared a special issue in which we had the chance to interview 9 artists from the international scene whose works unveil the ubiquitous combination between conceptual and socio politicised practice, giving birth to a stimulating mix of pure art and deep social engagement.

Their refined multidisciplinary approaches give life to an incessant process of recontextualization, that provides the viewers of an extension ofthe basic human perception, in order to manipulate it, releasing it from its most primordial, limbic parameters.

Overtly playing with the unheimlich nature of gestural movements and sound, as well as traditional brushstrokes and photography, their pieces reveal the tendency to exist in continuum, residing somewhere in our collective memory. We are particularly pleased to introduce our readers to their multifaceted artistic productions.

"As museums are rethinking their relationship to their audience online, an increasing number chooses to publish online magazines, and many of these publications emerge from institutions that are not necessarily the major museums in art world hubs. The attitudes toward these publishing initiatives vary—some choose to outline the scope of their publishing platforms in the shape of their programming, while others produce magazines that are thematically related to subjects the museum covers but are not directly linked to the art on view. What they all share is a feeling that online publishing expands the museum's audience, making it a potentially global one."  (Orit Gat)

The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center
PS160 is an immersive architectural installation that will take place inside The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center. Created by artist Gabrielle Mertz and commissioned by Artists Alliance, the project utilizes a choreographed series of light and sound projections located throughout the Clemente building to construct a performative experience of the architecture. The installation references structural and design elements of the Dutch Neo-Gothic landmark, as well as the building’s history within the Lower East Side neighborhood, original function as a school, and later use by artists and community members. The event also celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Law, which helped to catalyze the architectural preservation movement in the United States. Drawing on her background as a professional choreographer, the artist constructs a site-specific, immersive experience that places the architecture of the building.

Gabriel lester's Unresolved
“Trust me – I’m an artist,” Gabriel Lester says sometimes. Should we trust that he is an artist? Should we trust whatever he says because he’s an artist? What if he says “I am Kanye West”? What if he says this artist run exhibition is about creating a composition of autonomous universes with a centre that is not the artist himself? Should we not look surprised when he says each separate element is a group show in and of itself? Should we have confidence in his friends’ intentions to play along the lines of a crew in production and narrative making? Should we believe that the excessive figure of the artist is necessary for collective celebration and joy? "See you in the future," Gabriel Lester cheerfully calls, as if everything that comes to us is coming to meet us.     The roots of Gabriel Lester's practice are in the electronic, in sample music and in experimental cinema.

Ouverture de la résidence de Noemi Čotić

The public is invited to the residency’s opening on April 28 from 5pm to 7pm. Noemi Čotić was born in an artistic family,her mother is a painter and her father is a poet. In other words, she fell in it when she was a baby. She experimented with several disciplines such as dance and music to finally chose visual arts. For her, the urge is too strong there is no way she can choose anything but art. She experimented with form and materials and focused mainly on sculpture. Using wood and metal, her works focus mainly on the spatial and geometrical composition of sculpture. She plays with abstract shapes in a search for balance and harmony. Many see in her work a mathematical approach, but she doesn’t agree with that interpretation.

Temporary Structures in Gorky Park
The exhibition reveals the rich history of realized and unrealized temporary structures within Moscow’s Gorky Park and demonstrates important stylistic advancements within Russian architecture.

Garage Center for Contemporary Culture presents Temporary Structures in Gorky Park

Garage Center for Contemporary Culture will present a new exhibition entitled Temporary Structures in Gorky Park: From Melnikov to Ban from 20 October to 9 December 2012 in a newly created temporary pavilion in Moscow’s Gorky Park, designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. Showing rare archival drawings –many of which have never been seen before – the exhibition will begin by revealing the profound history of structures created in the park since the site was first developed in 1923, before moving through the Russian avant-garde period to finish with some of the most interesting contemporary unrealized designs created by Russian architects today.

By their nature, temporary structures erected for a specific event or happening have always encouraged indulgent experimentation, and sometimes this has resulted in ground-breaking progressive design. This exhibition recognizes such experimentation and positions the pavilion or temporary structure as an architectural typology that oscillates between art object and architectural prototype. In Russia, these structures or pavilions – often constructed of insubstantial materials – allowed Soviet architects the ability to express the aspirations of the revolution. They frequently became vehicles for new architectural and political ideas, and they were extremely influential within Russian architectural history.

 Temporary Structures also reveals the evolution of a uniquely Russian ‘identity’ within architecture and the international context, which has developed since the 1920s and continues today.

Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie – Contemporary Visions on China”, Taipei

Group Exhibition “Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie – Contemporary Visions on China” to be displayed in Taipei

by Sue Wang on 10:44 am

This year sees the third consecutive year of the fascinating annual exhibition hosted by Yi&C, and is again organized by collector Rudy Tseng 1. The opening of this exhibition will be held on November 9th in coordination with the schedule of Art Taipei 2012.

Besides Part 1 of the exhibition in Yi&C Contemporary Art, the second part of the exhibition will be extended to a new space—Artrans Fine Art Storage, an individual stand alone building in Neihu where three out of six-story building where a portion of the art works will be exhibited. The theme of this exhibition is Chinese contemporary art. Italian curator Davide Quadrio, a long-term inhabitant of Shanghai who speaks fluent Mandarin, is invited to curate this grand-scale exhibition, along with Jenny Lee as the assistant curator.

The title is inspired from Spanish director Luis Buñuel’s movie of the same title, Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie. Buñuel collaborated with Salvador Dali in producing Un Chien Andalou, a classic film of surrealism, which deeply influenced Latino films directors such as Pedro Almodóvar Caballero in Spain.

Woe-nderland curated by Henone Girma features five NYC-based artists – Belinda James, Ben Ponté, Elan Ferguson, JaSon Auguste, and Tariku Shiferaw. The title Woe-nderland takes as its point of departure the 1996 single ‘If I Ruled the World’ by recording artist Nas that begins with “Life, I wonder, will it take me under, I don’t know” – a simultaneous testimony to the ills of society and contemplation of its potentials.
