Leonardo da Vinci’s St. Jerome

The Metropolitan Museum of Art – Until Oct 06, 2019 New-York (USA)

 

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). To pay tribute to this occasion. The Metropolitan Museum Of Art offers New Yorkers. A unique opportunity to see his unfinished masterpiece, St. Jerome Praying in the Wilderness. The work portrays one of the principal theologians of the early Christian Church. During his two-year stay as a hermit in the Syrian desert. It was not unusual for Leonardo to leave his works in an incomplete state. Since other interests – science. The design of weapons. The construction of a flying machine – often distracted him from his art. Saint Jerome still shows Da Vinci at the height of his powers.

Olafur Eliasson

Tate Modern – July 11 / Junuary 5, 2020 London (England)

 

In Eliasson’s captivating installations you become aware of your senses. People around you and the world beyond.

Some artworks introduce natural phenomena. Such as rainbows to the gallery space. Others use reflections and shadows to play with the way. We perceive and interact with the world. Many works result from the artist’s research into complex geometry. Motion patterns, and his interest in colour theory. All but one of the works have never been seen in the UK before.

Joan Mitchell / Jean-Paul Riopelle

Gallery Jean Fournier – Until July 20, 2019 Paris (France)

 

Joan Mitchell and Jean-Paul Riopelle, a couple that still fascinates today. Similarly, if their love story ended badly. When they meet in 1955 in Paris. He has painted for three years small rectangles of color that look like mosaics. She is still under the influence of the first generation of American abstract artists. Of which one of the most eminent figures remains Willem de Kooning. Both have very different universes. Riopelle’s art is powerful and instinctive. While Mitchell’s is much more cerebral and intellectual.

The Parian years.

Yet it would be naïve to think that these artists did not influence each other. Throughout their life together, advising and exchanging on their impressions. By bringing together some fifteen works. The exhibition gives us to see the reciprocal influence of these two artists. She focuses on their Parisian years. Period of their meeting and their first exchanges with Jean Fournier. We are pleased to find works deeply related to the history of the gallery. Like an oil on canvas realized in 1964 by Riopelle. A work exhibited during the inauguration of the space.

Edvard Munch

Bristish Museum – Until July 21, 2019 London (England)

 

Loneliness, anxiety, jealousy, fear and torment. Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944). Probably wasn’t much fun at parties. But he sure had a knack for art. This exhibition doesn’t make for easy viewing. It’s heavy, dour stuff that’ll hang over you like a dark cloud.

But don’t come here expecting a massive in-depth show of his iconic paintings. Tthis is all about his prints. Munch worked extensively with woodcuts. Lithographs and etchings, and the results are often lovely.

Colour.

Everything that’s in Munch’s paintings. Except for colour – is also in his prints. There are lovers whose bodies merge. Couples tearing themselves apart in separation. Solitary figures lost in unbearable anguish. Beautiful unattainable women. ‘The Kiss’ is filled with a naked lust that’s almost Shockingly intense; the eyes of the lovers in ‘Attraction I’ are sunken and hollow; and ‘. The Scream’ – yes, it’s here, relax – is colourless. Stark and almost more haunted than the painted version.

Vivian Maier (the color work)

Les douches The Gallery – Until March 30, 2019 Paris (France)

 

One of photography’s truths is that the best street photographers learn to be invisible or. At the very
least, to convince themselves that they are. Over the years, I’ve walked the streets with Henri CartierBresson. Garry Winogrand. Tony Ray-Jones. Diane Arbus. Lee Friedlander, Tod Papageorge, and some of today’s younger shooters. Gus Powell. Melanie Einzig. Ben Ingham, and Matt Stuart. And we have all developed our own sleight-of-hand street act. We dodge, feint, twirl, two-step, and eye-shift our way through crowds and rallies. Along avenues and backstreets. In parks and on beaches. Anywhere that ordinary life draws our attention and desire. It is our invisibility that helps us get away with stealing fire from the gods.

Antony Gromley

Le Gallerie Degli Uffizi – Until May 26, Florence, (Italy)

 

This exhibition is intended as a form of adventure that invites both physical and imaginative participation. The body in Gormley’s work is not a protagonist in a narrative. Nor an ideal, a portrait or a memorial. It is the body in and as space.

Early experimental sculptures, objects and drawings. Often made using his own body as a primary tool, material and subject. Are brought together with large scale environments made especially for the RA. Using organic. Industrial and elemental materials, such as iron. Steel. Lead. Seawater and clay. The solidity and certainty of sculpture is put to the test. Acknowledging entropy, disintegration. The experience of disorientation. Our understanding of matter itself is under scrutiny. What it means to have a body. When every ‘thing’ is essentially space and energy.

Pierre Bonnard

This is the first major exhibition of Pierre Bonnard’s work in the UK. Since the much-loved show at Tate 20 years ago. It will allow new generations to discover Bonnard’s unconventional use of colour. While surprising those who think they already know him.

Born 1867. Bonnard was, with Henri Matisse. One of the greatest colourists of the early 20th century. He preferred to work from memory. Imaginatively capturing the spirit of a moment. And expressing it through his unique handling of colour and innovative sense of composition.

Charlotte Salomon – (Berlin, 1917 – Auschwitz, 1943)

Charlotte Salomon’s life was short but intense. Marked by love. Death and a family history of suffering. Art was a refuge where she could overcome the past. And come to terms with a present that saw her being deported to Auschwitz. Where she would die in 1943. The Monastir de Pedralbes, continuing its commitment to resarch and disseminating information. On silenced women. Gives a voice to this Jewish artist. And the time she lived in, with some of the 782 gouaches that make up her ‘Life? Or theatre?’

Vanessa Safavi

The Approach Gallery – Until Feb 10, 2019 London (Engand)

 

The Breeder participates at Condo London 2019, hosted at The Approach, with a presentation of works Vanessa Safavi.

Vanessa Safavi uses the conceptual systems of language. And a personal narrative to explore in her work the experience of the dearticulated body. Questioning the relationship between the brain and the flesh. Her work recalls the weakness of our bodies and also. The poetry that emerges from them. She employs the modernist idiom of geometric abstraction. And the fluorescent-flavoured vernacular of contemporary pop culture. Delineating a landscape where both languages are spoken fluently. Silicone is a recurrent medium in her works. As the artist is interested in its materiality and is fascinated. By its analogy with the human body and skin.

Vanessa Safavi (1980) is Swiss-Iranian and she lives and works in Berlin.She has been awarded the Luci d’Artista award in Turin (2013).

Paula Rego

Musée de l’Orangerie – Until Jan 14, 2019 Paris (France)

 

The only female artist to be part of the London Group. Paula Rego set herself apart with her highly figurative. Literary, incisive and unusual work.

Born in Lisbon in 1935. Paula Rego left Portugal and Salazar’s oppressive dictatorship. As an adolescent to study in London. Where she has now lived for over fifty years. As a student at the Slade School of Arts. She rubbed shoulders with the likes of Francis Bacon. Lucian Freud. Frank Auerbach and David Hockney.

Dark narratives. Ser paintings seem to be taken from a cruel tale. And evoke the female condition in strange scenes. Going against social codes. “My favourite themes are power games and hierarchies. I always want to turn things on their heads. To upset the established order, to change heroines and idiots”.

Pop-y geometric abstractions evoked a sense of movement through the repetition. And sequencing of varied motifs. He was also a pioneer of kinetic art. A role most notably represented here by an immersive psychedelic installation from 1962 titled. Continual Light Cylinder.

As well as an immersive Escher-inspired environment created by Japanese design studio Nendo.

We can’t wait to see how they’ll respond to Escher’s most iconic image. The physically impossible, Hogwarts-esque staircases.

Escher rose to prominence in the 20th-century art world for his mind-bending and mathematically complex works like. ‘Hand with Reflecting Sphere’. ‘Relativity’ and ‘Balcony’. Though he considered himself to have little mathematical ability. Sis art has become iconic for its seamless tessellation, warped perspectives and impossible objects. Like endless, connected staircases and mirrored self-portraits.

Luis Camnitzer

Museo Reina Sofía – Until March 04, 2019 Madrid (Spain)

 

This retrospective offers a global. Contextualised view of Luis Camnitzer’s multi-faceted work. Spanning nearly sixty years. As an essayist. Art critic. Curator. Teacher. Lecturer and a creator of objects, actions and musical compositions, Camnitzer focuses on art’s transformative capacity. Viewing it essentially as a product of reflection. His practice, whether it be artistic. Or through his essays or teaching. Is defined by its approach to the controversial issues of our times.

the criticism of art-commodity, the demystification. And obsolescence of the role of the artist in consumer society. The strategies power uses to impose its logic and perpetuate its control. Or the capacity of neoliberal societies to turn education. Into an instrument of propaganda and thus render it irrelevant. All through the signifying role of language. With its ambiguities and arbitrariness. And images’ power to evoke. With these tools Camnitzer seeks to awaken the active participation.

Franz West

Museum Centre Pompidou – Until Dec 10, 2018 Paris (France)

 

A retrospective of Austrian artist Franz West at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Begins where most biographical tales perhaps should – with his mother. Emilie West. Born to a well-to-do Viennese Jewish family. She espoused communist ideals and the artist’s father, Ferdinand Zokan, a Serbian coal merchant. The family lived in a public housing complex. Out of which Emilie ran a private dental practice. Her clients included many artists and poets. Among them Reinhard Priessnit. A poet and theorist who would give the name Paßstücke (Adaptives). To West’s most iconic series of sculptures. This early contact with Vienna’s artistic milieu. Would have a profound impact on the young West’s later career. As would the sounds of whirling drills. And the image of his mother creating white and pink moulds of teeth from plaster and resin.

It is the world’s first major monographic show on his work. Only just over forty paintings. And sixty prints by the master remain in existence today. With 12 panel paintings, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna owns. The world’s biggest collection of Bruegel paintings. That is also mostly because the Habsburgs prized. The quality and originality of Bruegel’s imagery as early as the 16th century. And went to the effort of acquiring famous. Prestigious works by the artist.

Andy Warhol “Shadows”

Dia Art Foundation – Oct 26 / Dec 15, 2018 NY (USA)

Created between 1978 and 1979. Shadows is one of Andy’s most abstract and enigmatic pieces. Consisting of variously colored silk screened. Canvases hung edge-to-edge in a site-specific installation. Some 102 paintings were produced in all. Though the total number of panels varies from one location. To the next, depending on the dimensions of a given space. Each silk screen is limited to a palette of two contrasting colors. While the picture itself—which flips between positive. And negative—comes from the same photo of the eponymous subject taken at Warhol’s Factory studio. Taken together, Shadows resembles a film strip capturing an indeterminate play of light.

This exhibition is dedicated to the work of American artist Saul Leiter. Who was one of the early adopters of working with colour photography. Leiter combined photography and painting his whole life.

Capture and interpret live in New York City in many-layered compositions. As well as intimate scenes as nobody had done before. Leiter also played an important role in the formation of the New York school of photography in the 1940s and 1950s.

Hilma af Klint

Guggenheim Museum – Oct 12 / Apr 23, 2018 New York (USA)

 

Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) was a pioneer of abstract painting, though admittedly. Something of an accidental one. Although she produced purely non-objective paintings. Well before the likes of Vassily Kandinsky or Kasimir Malevich. She created them as part of her involvement in occult and mystical practices. That sought contact with the spirit realm. When Klint did exhibit. She mostly showed conventional portraits and landscapes. Nonetheless, there’s no denying that the Swedish artist anticipated one of the most important aesthetic revolutions in 20th-century art. This show takes the measure of her singular artistic achievement.

Staged entirely for the camera His work is a form of drag that involves elaborate customs and sets to deconstruct icons of pop culture and art history—and. Very often, the overlap between the two. Famous paintings and photos are the grist for his work. Which channels Marilyn Monroe. Che Guevara. Frida Kahlo and Vincent Van Gogh, among many others.

Zao Wou-Ki

His work has now achieved the fame it deserves. But the opportunities to appreciate its complexity have been too rare here. This exhibition sets out to consider it in a new light while. Also inviting the viewer to reflect on the question of large-format paintings.

The exhibition itinerary begins with Zao Wou-Ki’s adoption of a new, “abstract” approach – even. If he found the term too restrictive. With the 1956 painting titled Traversée des apparences. This decisive step preceded a first stay in the United States, in 1957. That encouraged him in his quest for an ever-larger picture space.

Nam June Paik

Korean-born, American artist Nam June Paik (1932–2006). Blazed a trail with video art that remains influential to this day. Paik’s TV Clock, one of SBMA’s most important media art works. Is on view for the first time in nearly a decade. TV Clock consists of 24 color televisions mounted upright on pedestals that are arranged in a gentle arc. And displayed in a darkened space. Paik created each electronic image by manipulating the television to compress its red, green. And blue color into a single line against a black background. Called a “fixed-image television” by Paik. Each TV does not involve a videotape. disc, or computer chip but an image.

The artist created by ingenious manipulation of electronic elements. Read in sequence, each static line tumbles. Into the next to form a dynamic yet elegantly spare. Rhythm that resembles a universally recognized way to measure time. A crucial work in Paik’s long career. TV Clock offers audiences the chance to experience. The art and thought of one of the 20th century’s most innovative. And enduringly vital artists.

On the ground floor. He stages a kind of hiking trail with gravel and small sculpted ponds. As if it were a small, indoor park. In which the spectator discovers life-size sculpted figures of children and
a young woman. These silent figures in everyday poses. All of them with their eyes closed. Seem lost in thought yet simultaneously caught in a moment of high concentration. There is, for example, a boy meditatively holding a crystal ball in his hands. A boy who just closed his eyes before shooting. An arrow with a toy bow, and a young woman listening to music

The Studio Museum in Harlem (1983) and the New Museum (1993). A moment of “re-discovery”. About a dozen years finally put him on the map as an artist to contend with. As appreciation grew for his over-all abstracted paintings. That touched on themes from race to cosmology. This show introduces viewers to his sculptures. A heretofore, little-known aspect of his practice notable for its frequent references to African art.

Which first used grounds of metallic paint on canvas before rejecting canvas entirely for polished steel. Pistoletto’s life-size. Photo-silkscreened images of people atop. Highly reflective surfaces integrate the environment and viewer into the work. In his “minus objects”. Sculptures that explore how objects become artworks through the ideas they express. Pistoletto uses “poor” materials as a liberation from the traditional art system,.As in his 1967 work Venus of the Rags. A copy of the classical figure set against a mound of old clothes and rags. An early performance art innovator. Pistoletto founded The Zoo in the late 1960s. Which joined artists. Intellectuals, and the public for collaborative “actions”. That unified art and daily life.

Anselm Kiefer

White Cube Gallery – Until Aug 25, 2018 (Hong Kong)

Anselm Kiefer has produced a diverse body of work comprising painting. Sculpture and installation that has made him one of the most important European artists of the past four decades.

After studying law, and Romance languages and literature. Kiefer devoted himself entirely to painting. He attended the School of Fine Arts at Fribourg-in-Brisgau. Then the Art Academy in Karlsruhe, while maintaining contact with Joseph Beuys. But soon began to develop his own deliberately indigenous set of subjects and symbols. That he used to explore the fraught territory of German history and identity. In his artistic language. Physical materiality and visual complexity enliven his themes and content with a rich. Vibrant tactility.

His subject-matter ranges from sources as diverse as Teutonic Mythology and history. Alchemy and the nature of belief. All depicted in a bewildering variety of materials. Including oil paint. Dirt. Lead. Photography. Woodcuts, sand, straw and all manner of organic material. By adding found materials to the painted surface of his immense tableaux. He invents a compelling third space between painting and sculpture. Recent work has broadened his range yet further, and in 2005 he showed a series of paintings based around the little-known work of the modernist poet Velimir Chlebnikov (1885-1922). Few contemporary artists match Kiefer’s epic reach, and his work consistently balances powerful imagery with acute critical analysis.

Erwin Wurm’s outdoor installation

Brooklyn Bridge Park – Until Aug 26, 2018

It’s a gray, dreary day at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, on Furman Street. And Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm is going somewhat off topic whil. Discussing his new installation for the Public Art Fund. “In my country, it’s an insult to call someone a virsli”. He says, referring to a local variety of sausage. “If you call someone a virsli. It means you’re calling him, um, how would you say?” A dick? “A dick, yes.”

Hot Dog Bus.

Sometimes a virsli is just a virsli. Though for the purposes of Wurm’s project, Hot Dog Bus. This delicacy, or rather its American cousin, is being elevated to art. The piece comprises a mustard-colored VW bus. That is handing out free hot dogs this summer at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The vehicle itself looks like it has consumed too many tube steaks. Bulging across its grill. Trunk and fenders as if it were wearing the automotive equivalent of a fat suit. “I work quite often with sausages”. Says Wurm, “because it’s such an iconic Middle-European food.”

The first major Canadian retrospective of Alexander Calder (1898–1976). Presents the work of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition centres on the inventive talent of this American painter and sculptor.

Calder questioned artistic conventions and reimagined the very nature of drawing and sculpture. With his pioneering use of industrial materials. Such as steel wire and sheet metal as well as found objects. By introducing the fourth dimension of time into sculpture. He entirely transformed the way objects animate space. And his invention of the mobile, as he explained. Opened up “a new possibility of beauty.” Calder also created stationary abstract works, which Jean Arp dubbed “stabiles” in 1932. From Paris to New York . Later Montreal with Trois disques (Man). Created for Expo 67. Calder moved in premier artistic and intellectual circles. (Cocteau. Duchamp. Le Corbusier. Léger. Mondrian. Miró. Prévert. Sartre. Varèse. among others). And established himself as a forerunner of the international avant-garde.

Major loans are among the 100 works. Also, that illustrate this ingenious artist’s extensive means of  expression. Ranging from paintings and drawings to wire circus figures. Hanging and standing mobiles. Sheet-metal stabiles as well as jewellery.

An exhibition organized and circulated by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation. It is presented in Montreal thanks to the support of the Terra Foundation for American Art and Pembroke.

John Mawurndjul

Museum of Contemporary Art – Until Sep 23, 2018 Australia, Sydney

Bark painting is among the most recognisable Aboriginal art, but you mightn’t know that it was only popularised in the 1930s. Until then, the familiar imagery was used as body paint and in caves. Occasionally the patterns were painted onto bark as a record of the designs, but it’s only relatively recently that the bark has been considered its own canvas.

One of the greatest exponents of bark painting – and one of the greatest exponents of Aboriginal art in general. Is John Mawurndjul, who rose to international fame in the late 1980s and ‘90s. The Kuninjku artist, based in Arnhem Land, is getting a major career retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, made up of 165 works.

Provocateur.

They’ll take over the third level of the MCA this winter, the same space where English artist and provocateur Grayson Perry presented a blockbuster show in 2015. At the time, Perry sparked debate when he controversially said Aboriginal art should not be considered contemporary art.

Clothilde Bullen, one of the curators behind Mawurndjul’s exhibition and a Wardandi (Nyoongar). Aboriginal woman, strongly disagrees. “I think all Aboriginal art being made here and now is contemporary, and I’d absolutely stand by that.” she says. “But it’s OK that [Perry] is given the opportunity to say those things at the MCA, and we have this kind of rebuttal.”

Not only is Mawurndjul one of the major pioneers of the bark medium. He has evolved and pushed traditional practices, like rarrk, which refers to a close and meticulous cross-hatching that creates an almost shimmering effect on the bark. And he has been deeply involved in shaping the narrative and layout of this exhibition, which explores elements of Kuninjku culture and then covers parts of his country in Central Arnhem Land.

“In a sense, you’re working through country in the way you should – in the way John would want you to walk through,” Bullen says. “We’ve had a collaborative approach, and allowing the artist to guide what we do rather than us being the gatekeeper – that’s a very contemporary approach to Aboriginal curation.”

Evolution.

The exhibition will also show his evolution as an artist, starting with figurative works which show natural elements like barramundi, frogs and turtles. In his mid-career, he started to push his use of ‘rarrk’ even further with paintings of the weeks-long Mardayin ceremonies that take place in Arnhem land. In the later stages of his career, his work became more abstract.

Bullen says that although both Mawurndjul and the MCA consider his work contemporary, his output stands on its own terms. And while his work is imbued with stories and images stretching back thousands of years, visitors shouldn’t be worried about interpreting the paintings incorrectly.

“It’s actually okay – it’s an artwork and people will have different experiences with it and different takes on it, and can interpret it in lots of different ways. I think people need to drop that fear.”

This exihibition looks into creative pair-work and the mechanisms of an artistic companionship. Does each approach dissolve into one, are they complementary or do they oppose each other? Here, are explored the creative processes and artistic approaches which interact and evolve within the intimacy of a twosome to give us a broader understanding of Art History and the soul and fringes of its essential movements. The very idea of modernity, as impacted by social, artistic and technical evolutions. Is reviewed here through the prism of the couple.

Daniel Buren

Carriageworks – Until Aug 12, 2018 Sydney (Australia)

Daniel Buren is one of France’s leading contemporary artists and has exhibited work at an astonishing ten Venice Biennales. He’s best known for his site-specific stripe installations, and there’ll be glimpses of those stripes (which have featured in his artworks since the 1960s), in the mammoth installation he’s bringing to Carriageworks.

‘Like Child’s Play’ features 100 oversized children’s wooden block toys arranged into a colourful cityscape. It’ll be a little like stepping into a Toy Story movie. The toys that we once played with and held dominance over as children now tower high above our heads. The installation was first shown in 2014 at Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain of Strasbourg in France.

Alberto Giacometti

The Guggenheim Museum – June 8/Sept 12, 2018 New-York

When they think of him at all, most people remember Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) as the artist who created skinny figures. That’s true, of course, though it neglects the context in which he made those sculptures in the late 1940s. After war and genocide left the world both devastated and numb. Though it may be simplistic to draw a correlation between the death camps and Giacometti’s. Emaciated forms, his treatment of the body. Transforming it into something resembling a burnt matchstick, exemplified a zeitgeist stunned by catastrophe. The Guggenheim’s magisterial survey of his career affirms as much, while noting that Giacometti defined the figure in existential terms. As a manifestation of the vulnerability, anguish and mystery of the human condition.

Born in Switzerland into a family of artists, Giacometti moved, in 1922. To study art in Paris, where he discovered the work of Constantin Brancusi and Pablo Picasso. He assimilated aspects of their styles. Also found inspiration in the artifacts of ancient cultures, like the Bronze Age’s Cycladic civilization. All of these influences are evident in Giacometti’s totemic sculpture Spoon Woman (1927)., In which a female torso takes the shape of the eponymous implement. A rather blatant vaginal reference that also recalls a fertility fetish.

André Breton.

Around this time, Giacometti fell under the sway of André Breton and the Surrealists, a group known for hitting the mother lode of eroticism by mining the subconscious for subject matter. Giacometti followed suit with his seminal 1932 construction, The Palace at 4 a.m. (which is not on display, though a preparatory study of it is). By his own admission, the piece—a sort of 3D drawing of a house or stage set haunted by an enigmatic cast that includes a woman, a spinal column and a flying creature—came out of a torrid love affair that consumed him for six months, suggesting that Palace totes some major sexual baggage. In any case, Giacometti drifted away from Surrealism by the mid-1930s.

Paris.

He remained in Paris after the Nazi takeover in 1940, but a 1941 trip to Geneva to visit his mother left him in exile after he was denied reentry into France. He sat out World War II in a hotel room. Where he made work at a diminished scale, necessitated by his cramped surroundings.

Whether due to his isolation during the war or the horrors precipitated by it, Giacometti, upon returning to Paris in 1946. Embarked on the attenuated figuration that would remain his signature style until his death in 1966. His postwar reunion with friends and family also sparked a body of portrait paintings featuring people close to him.

Regardless of medium or personal familiarity, though. Giacometti set his subjects at a seemingly unbridgeable distance from the viewer. His use of dashed-off schematic lines for his portraits, and gnarled textures for his sculpture.Cconveys the sense of something consumed or atomized by elemental forces—as indeed the world had been by 1945. Since then, Giacometti’s art has continued to remind us of humanity’s inability to escape its own folly.

Antoni Tàpies

Fundació Antoni Tàpies – Until 24 Feb 2019 Barcelona, (Espagne)

Antoni Tàpies exploded on to the art scene in the 1950s when he began to incorporate waste paper, mud and rags into his paintings, eventually moving on to the point where his works included whole pieces of furniture, running water and girders. Today, he’s Barcelona’s most celebrated living artist, and his trademark scribbled and paint-daubed pieces are sought after for everything from wine bottle labels to theatre posters.

The artist set up the Tàpies Foundation in this, the former Montaner i Simon publishing house, in 1984, dedicating it to the study and appreciation of contemporary art. In a typically contentious act, Tàpies crowned the building with a glorious tangle of aluminium piping and ragged metal netting (‘Núvol i Cadira’, or ‘Cloud and Chair’). The building remains one of the earliest examples of Modernisme to combine exposed brick and iron, and is now a cultural centre and museum dedicated to the work and life of the man himself, with exhibitions, symposiums, lectures and films.

Summer Exhibition/The Great Spectacle review – a Grayson revolution

Royal Academy – Untl 19 August, 2018 London


This year, the committee included Phyllida Barlow, Conrad Shawcross and Cornelia Parker and was helmed by none other than dotty potter and art world everyman Grayson Perry, who has given more space than ever to plucky, undiscovered amateurs. But it’s not all weekend paintbrush warriors: there are major works by the likes of Anish Kapoor, David Shrigley, David Hockney and Rose Wylie too. Even everyone’s favourite wall-botherer Banksy is involved, displaying a work of art made out of a Ukip placard, priced at £350m. £350m! Like the Brexit bus! More like Bants-y, amirite?

250 years.

Every year for the past 250 years, the Royal Academy has bravely opened its doors and allowed literally any old schmuck to have a go at getting their art on its walls. The annual Summer Exhibition is an open submission show: that means plebs and haughty fine artists alike can send in their work for consideration by a jury of Royal Academicians, who sift through thousands of works of art before choosing the best 1,300 pieces to display.

Almost everything in the Summer Exhibition is for sale, so this could be your chance to nab a bargain painting by a future superstar, or to finally invest your riches in a Tracey Emin. And this year, to help celebrate that whole 250 years of being a leading light in the UK art scene thing, the RA is taking the Summer Exhibition out into the street as well, with works by artists spilling out onto Piccadilly and Regent Street.

The Summer Exhibition is an annual highlight: 250 years of tradition, art and giving the little guy a chance. Long may it continue.

Yves Klein Exhibition

 Blenheim Art Foundation – 18July/07Oct 2018 – (England)

A major exhibition of French artist Yves Klein’s work is to go on display at Blenheim Palace from 18 July – 7 October. The show will mark what would have been the visionary French artist’s 90th birthday and will explore concepts of “beauty, sensibility and the sublime”.

Klein is considered one of the most important figures in post-war European art, combining traditional artistic mediums with innovative techniques. His imaginative creative approach influenced movements in conceptual art, minimalism and performance art; his Anthropometryseries, which will be on display at Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace, saw Klein employ models as “living brushes” to create marks on the canvases in front of a live audience, breaking down the boundaries between artistic process and finished product.

Blenheim Palace

Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace will feature a total of 50 artworks including painting, sculpture and large-scale installation. Visitors can expect to see Klein’s large-scale Monochrome Paintings,which were decisive in the artist’s fascination with and focus on the colour blue. Klein is perhaps most famous for developing his own vivid, ultramarine pigment, International Klein Blue, which became a symbol of reaching the ‘infinite’ or the ‘sublime’ through pure colour.

The exhibition is hosted by the Blenheim Art Foundation, which aims to inspire visitors of Blenheim Palace with modern and contemporary art inside the 18th-century building, and will mark the institution’s 5th anniversary.

Daniel Moquay of Yves Klein Archives said in a statement: “We are very happy to collaborate with Blenheim Art Foundation on the occasion of Yves Klein’s 90th birthday year and to present his artworks in a totally different environment from the usual exhibitions that we organise. This exhibition Art Gallery will present Yves Klein’s artworks from a new angle and bring contemporary and neo-classical art into unprecedented dialogue, as a fluid tradition.”

RODIN AND THE WORLD OF DANCE

Museum Rodin until 22 July Paris (French)

From the 1890s onward, the art of dance was transformed, with new experiences revolutionizing what was sometimes an urbane and codifi ed form of entertainment. Rodin’s keen interest in these innovations led him to meet such exceptional figures as Hanako and Loïe Fuller. A particular highlight was his encounter with the dancers of the Cambodian royal ballet during their visit to Paris to perform at the World’s Fair. When they left, in the sculptor’s words.

They “took the beauty of the world with them”. Inspired by his complicity with the shapers of this revolution. Rodin associated dance and sculpture, both of which explore the possibilities of the human body. He turned his attention to all forms of dance. Regional and oriental folk dances. Cabaret performances, outstanding contemporary dancers, and dance as it was practiced in Antiquity. An interest he shared with Isadora Duncan.

THE EXULTATION OF THE BODY

The exhibition, centered on the “Dance Movements” series, will survey all Rodin’s research and experimentation. The sculptor used assemblages to convey the body’s tensions. Inventing audacious portés that combine effects of void and solid, balance and imbalance. Rodin’s creativity focused on expressing the life force of the body.  Itsvital energy, strength and equilibrium – just as dance explores the body’s relationship with space and weightlessness through extension. Flexibility and freedom of line.

Picasso and Dance

Palais Garnier/Paris Opera –  June 19/September 16, 2018 (French)

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was without a doubt one of the most versatile artists of the 20th century – a painter, draftsman, sculptor and engraver. He never stopped investigating a wide range of techniques, exploring the most diverse fields and forms of expression. In the 1910s, he discovered the world of show business and started working on the creation of sets and costumes. That would mark the history of ballet. Parade (1917), The Three-Cornered Hat (1919), Pulcinella (1920) and Mercure (1924) are all major landmark works for this art. Picasso’s legacy remains alive in the Ballet repertoire of the Paris Opera, which demonstrates how important a role he played in the choreographic landscape of the time.

In dance

However, looking beyond the world of ballet, we can see that Picasso expressed an interest in dance from a young age. From the circus dancers of the 1900s. To the bacchanal scenes of the 1940s to 1960s, to the erotic dances of Picasso’s later work. Everything seemed to be a pretext to depicting bodies in movement. The dynamics of the danced movement thus featured in all of the master’s work. Sometimes going so far as to in fact fuel his artistic expression.
The exhibition held by the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Paris National Opera explores the different aspects of Picasso’s relationship with dance. From company life and creative research, to fine arts and performing arts.

The Polaroid Project

The exhibition at C/O Berlin focuses on the use of the cult instant camera Polaroid in art, film and pop culture.

Museumsportal –  7 July /23 September 2018 Berlin (Germany)

The Polaroid camera has been an integral part of photographic history since the early 1970s: the self-developing images, the classic square format with the white edge and the light composition of the photos are the personification of the snapshot.

The Polaroid photo in art

In recent decades they have also enjoyed great popularity among artists. Andy Warhol used the Polaroids as a reference for his pop art and documented his work with it, Dennis Hopper researched with the camera for his films, and Richard Hamilton painterly redesigned the snapshots. In a collection of 250 photographs, the exhibition portrays the many possible uses of the Polaroid camera.

GEORG BASELITZ – CORPUS BASELITZ

 The Musée Unterlinden, Colmar, France.

June 10 / October 29, 2018.

To coincide with Georg Baselitz’s 80th birthday, the Musée Unterlinden is devoting a major exhibition to the German artist.

The event in Colmar, entitled Corpus Baselitz. Will mark the first exhibition in a French museum of a new and significant body of works (paintings, drawings and sculptures). Produced between 2014 and 2017, in which the artist examines his own body, and through it, his place in the history of art.

Since his first inverted paintings of 1969. The representation of his own body has proliferated in Baselitz’s work with varying degrees of regularity.  Either alone or accompanied by the body of his wife Elke, in the tradition of the nude and the self-portrait.

Whilst his gaze was previously that of a distant observer, in the series of works. That he began in the winter of 2014–15. He confronts the reality of his advanced years and the ravages of time. In this introspective work, he summons up his masters (Duchamp, Dubuffet, Dix, Picasso, or De Kooning) for what resembles a descent into hell.

Framented

The mutilated, incomplete, and fragmented body. Yet the violence of the subject of old age is counterbalanced by the movement of walking downstairs (a reference to Duchamp’s 1912 work Nude Descending a Staircase). Which the inversion transforms into an upward movement. The generosity of the medium and a new painting technique transfigure the bodies, which become luminescent and vibrant.

The obsession with the subject of his body stripped bare explored by Baselitz on the cusp of his eightieth birthday and the transmutation of this black vision into a vigorous. Generous representation offered up to the public demonstrate the artist’s unwavering vital and creative energy.

The subject

The subject, the form (sometimes drawing upon medieval triptychs). The monumentality, the physical substance, and the color of the German artist’s works resonate like a contemporary echo. Of Grünewald’s panels in the Isenheim Altarpiece. The masterpiece of the Musée Unterlinden’s collections.

The exhibition constitutes an exceptional and unique tribute to a major contemporary artist. Following on from the retrospective of his work being held at the Beyeler Foundation. Near Basel from January to May 2018.

Aurélien Froment – oe

Marcelle Alix Gallery – 31 May/21 July 2018 (Paris)

Aurélien FromentAurélien Froment’s not only reveals existing forms, but it also determines other ways of dreaming them by seeking the right transformation, that enables the past to build a future. The artist aims at making an effort of imagination to connect himself to faraway things in order to put them on a common stage and determine their importance together. In this light, he has conceived the inventory of the elements constituting the Ideal Palace of postman Cheval. A work which is so intense that only a closer vision may contribute to shedding light on this “work of one man”. Concerned about his own pace.

Photographed.

What these figures (imaginary animals, plants, ornaments, etc). Carved in rock and photographed separately depict. Is a different life pulse. A rhythm that the world needs as a kind of support.

These pieces translate performative thinking in relation to preexisting works: they seek to stress the path that starts with the gesture and leads towards the form, and vice versa. The exhibition will always be, for the artist, a way of not forgetting what might be called “the arising of the gesture”. The way in which the gesture enables us to truly make use of forms as much as it helps us become receptive.

Here’s the Joseph Beuys myth: the hugely influential German artist was a pilot in World War II. He crashed his Stuka over the Crimea and was found by a tribe of nomadic. Tartars who wrapped him in fat and felt to keep him warm. They saved his life.

Out of that fable came a whole career based on felt, fat, electricity and medicine. The building blocks of survival, used to help deal with his country’s tormented recent past. His work took in sculpture, drawing, performance, political activism and lectures. It’s art as spiritual first aid for a damaged national psyche, sculpture as healing object. Performance as shamanic ritual – and it’s some of the most important art of the twentieth century.

Installation.

The first room here is full of felt clipped to the walls, copper boxes and piles of relay equipment. In

one piece, rolls of felt nestle in smeared globs of fat. A hammer on the wall promises to rebuild something, a sled on the floor promises to whisk your broken body to safety.

Upstairs, the floor is littered with little coiled clay turds with tools stuck in them – like the charred faecal remains of some group of workers – cracked machinery and powerless electricity rods. It leaves you certain that once this was alive, but is now anything but. You’ve probably seen a bronze version of this landmark installation in the Tate. They are sad, forlorn, abandoned things.

In a side room, you find a bunch of early works – fragile little female figures and crucifixes, all on the edge of crumbling like disintegrating prayers.

Social cohésion.

These are all political statements too – works that scream for healing and social cohesion, not the destructive, nihilistic drive of capital. That they’re on show, and many for sale, in a huge international commercial gallery is pretty at odds with Beuys’s whole vibe.

But look past that and in this art of upheaval and pain, you might just find some balm for the soul, and we could all use a bit of that.

“She logs on every day, and out of habit types in product names one after another as if panning for gold; she always finds a reason to add them to the shopping cart. One item leads to another, and the sea of merchandise only expands her bottomless appetite.”

This passage sums up a widespread 21st-century experience: the feeling of near-mindlessness or automation that accompanies online shopping. When we shop on the internet, we often become untethered from ourselves, and we feel, and then try to satisfy, needs we didn’t even know we had.

The words come from a short story contributed by artist Cao Fei to the catalogue for One Hand Clapping, an Exhibition Gallery Opening at the Guggenheim May 4. Cao Fei’s new video work—a commission for the Guggenheim’s Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative—is set in the place that makes online shopping possible: a package distribution center.


HENRI MICHAUX:

THE OTHER SIDE

FEBRUARY 2 – MAY 13, 2018 –  Guggenheim Bilbao

An unclassifiable figure of the arts and literature of the 20th century, Henri Michaux (b. 1899, Namur, Belgium–d. 1984, Paris) greatly influenced the artists and writers of his time over the course of his long life. Both a “poets’ poet” and a “painters’ painter.” Lionized by figures in both fields like André Gide and Francis Bacon. Michaux feverishly produced thousands of works on paper whose full extent is only now becoming apparent.

Archives in Paris.

This Exhibition Gallery, organized in collaboration with the Michaux Archives in Paris, covers fifty years of Michaux’s creative activity. Focusing on his most important periods and series. Bringing together some 230 of the artist’s visual works. Documents, and personal objects, Henri Michaux: The Other Side is organized around three principal themes. Offering a panoramic view of each: the human figure, the alphabet, and the altered psyche.

The show emphasizes the formal and material parallels and convergences between these three themes, and reveals central aspects of the artist’s modus operandi. Underscoring his constant interest in science, musicology, and ethnography. Some of Michaux’s fundamental series. Like the fonds noirs (black backgrounds). The frottages (rubbings), the mouvements (movements), and the dessins mescaliniens (mescaline drawings). Are amply represented in this show, which includes works never exhibited before as well as pieces from major national and international collections.

Dreams that money can buy (1947)

Directed by Hans Richter (German)

 

Surrealist painter and Dada film-theorist Hans Richter wrote, produced. And directed the experimental exercise Dreams That Money Can Buy. One of the most significant contributions to the 20th-century “avant garde” movement. The project began in 1944. While Richter was director of the Institute of Film Techniques. At City College in New York. Combining short scenarios written by such world-renowned artists as Max Ernst. Marcel Duchamps. Man Ray. Alexander Calder and Fernand Leger. Richter came up with a full-color. Feature-length study in dreamlike “wish fulfillment”. The film’s only nod to continuity is the presence of a self-styled heavenly psychiatrist.

$25,000

Whose patients purportedly visualize the images which play across the screen. Described by one observer as “surreal yet somewhat Jungian”. Dreams That Money Can Buy cost $25,000. And was three years in the making (Richter liked to take his time. His later Dadascope took five years). Its New York premiere was greeted with a mixture. Of bravos and bewilderment. Especially when the projectionist elected to show. The film on the wall and ceiling rather than the screen. One assumes that the projectionist was less capricious. When Dreams That Money Can Buy won a special prize at the 1947 Venice Film Festival.

Vicious Cycle

Directed by Michael Marczewski (England)

 

Michael Marczewski is a Motion Designer and Director working at ManvsMachine. A Cannes Gold Lion award winning design. And motion studio based in London. However Michael’s new film, Vicious Cycle, is a passion project. That features cute robots driven by exponentially malfunctioning mechanisms. Which comedically destroy the lovable bots. I sat down with Michael to pick his brains about how he conjured. A particular aesthetic style to lull the audience into a false sense of automated security.

Human Flow

Directed by Ai Weiwei (Chinese)

 

Documentary by director Ai Weiwei. Which premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in February 2017. Human Flow tells the stories of a handful of individuals. Who lived through or have experienced humanitarian crises. Throughout the film, the spectator is transported. To over twenty countries where the migratory crisis is underway.

Offering the testimony of migrants fleeing war. Famine or repression, as well as that of executives. And humanitarian workers trying to assist them in their desperate search for security. Justice and dignity. A multiple award-winner. Human Flow is an artistic. Factual and moving visual expression of the profoundly personal consequences of the migratory crisis in Europe.

“Evolver”

 Terrence Malick’s New project has Music by Jonny Greenwood (USA)

 

Cinephiles will probably want to sit down for this news. Terrence Malick and Jonny Greenwood are teaming up. The director is executive producing the virtual reality project “Evolver”. Which is set to feature original music from Greenwood. The project was originally announced to be included at the upcoming VR Days Europe. In collaboration with the Rotterdam International Film Festival. But it has since been confirmed not to be heading there next year.

“Evolver” allows users to experience the lifespan of the human condition. From birth to death. The project is produced by House of Secrets. An animation and VR studio located in the Netherlands. And features new music not only from Greenwood but also from Wu-Tang Clan and more. Greenwood earned an Oscar nomination earlier this year for his work on Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread”. And handled score duties on Lynne Ramsay’s “You Were Never Really Here.”

His taste for the experimental. Terrence Malick proves it already through an atypical narration filmography. With The Tree of Life. Wonderfully, Knight of Cups or Song to Song. By 2018, the Texas director had already tried the immersive experience with the short film Together. A dive of more than six minutes in a choreographic ballet. Where dance merged with technology.

The Divine Order

Directed by Petra Biondina Volpe ( Swiss)

 

It is perhaps no accident that the heroine. Of this story of women’s liberation in early 1970’s Switzerland is named Nora. The legendary proto-feminist heroine of Ibsen’s 19th-century drama walked out of her doll’s house. About 100 years before the Nora of this movie walks out on her husband. Two sons, and borderline abusive father in law.

The Nora of this film, written and directed by Petra Volpe. Doesn’t seem likely to leave forever. Despite the elevation of consciousness that takes place throughout this movie. Her bond to her husband Hans and her two kids is strong. The most pleasurable part of watching this Nora’s story is seeing. How the males in her life have to make room for her, and do some learning themselves.

The fascinating, true-life story of endurance athlete Jerzy Gorski.  In 1990 in the World Triathlon Championships Double Ironman competition. He finished with a time of 24:47:46, setting a world record.  His story is full of incredible ups and downs. Tremendous effort, and unbelievable strength.  His achievements would not have been possible without two women in his life.  One woman he lost.  The other woman inspired him to fight for his life.  Extraordinary story of a man who found himself on a verge. Of self-annihilation only to overcome his addictions. And succeed in the most unbelievable way.

Witkin & Witkin

Directed by Trisha Ziff (England)

 

The world is full of things we can’t see. Even if they occur right in front of our eyes. With his surreal. Often grotesque, sometimes unsettling. Staged photographs, Joel-Peter Witkin creates a visual language for them. The world is also full of things we deliberately choose not to see. The socio-politically engaged figurative painter Jerome Witkin urges us with historically charged pictures to look at them.

Boom For Real – The new Basquiat documentary, Dec 2018.

Directed by Sara Driver (US)

 

Following the documentary Jean-Michel Basquiat. The Radiant Child by the artist’s personal friend, Tamra Davis. One could mistakenly think they knew everything there was to know about Basquiat. The film unveiled intimate confessions. Went through the daily life of Basquiat as an underground artist. And got closer than ever to dispelling the mythical aura surrounding the painter. Divulging his joys, doubts and dreams. However. This winter, Sara Driver is taking another approach to the artist’s life. Boom For Real:.The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiatrecounts the painter’s youth.

Born in Brooklyn on December 22, 1960. Jean-Michel Basquiat was a precocious child. He knew how to read and write by four. And he had already cultivated an interest in art thanks to regular visits to MoMA with his mother. It was his mother, too, who gifted him the book that changed everything. Henry Gray’s Anatomy of the Human Body, after a terrible accident ended in a trip to the hospital at seven. The scientific gaze helped him cultivate his signature artistic style later on. From his troubled childhood. Between delinquency and life on the street. The documentary showcases the birth of a free. Revolutionary artist, who reigned over the underground art scene. In an understated and unspoken way, all the time remaining as potent. And powerful as his brush would allow him to.

Rachel Maclean

Zabludowicz Collection – Sept 20 / Dec 16, 2018 London (England)

 

Three films by Scottish artist Rachel Maclean. The first is a brand new VR work that takes the viewer inside a dystopian version of Britain. Where tourist merch has reached epic proportions (imagine your average down-at-heal seaside shop, then multiply by 1000). The second is ‘Spite your Face’ a film that remixed the fairytale of Pinocchio to explore the very un-fairytale story of Brexit. And the third is ‘Make Me Up’. Created to mark 100 years of women having the vote in UK. And inspired by Mary Richardson’s famous slashing of Velazquez’s nude painting ‘The Rokeby Venus’.

Searching (2018)

Sicilian Ghost Story (2018)

Directed by Fabio Grassadonia, Antonio Piazza (Italian)

 

Set in a small Sicilian town that’s cradled in a picturesque. Rocky valley and fringed by a shadowy forest, there is a sense that Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s film takes place on the very fringe of the ‘real’ world. Where there is still some fairytale magic. Both beautiful and deadly. It’s a feeling encouraged by the directors’ languorous. Almost bleary visual style. Their deft use of natural imagery. And a story viewed through the prism of a fiercely imaginative teenage girl. Who, rather noticeably, likes to wear red.

 

 

 


BlacKkKlansman (2018)

Directed by Spike Lee

 

If you’ve been pining for the return of the fiery. Political Spike Lee of Do the Right Thingand Malcolm X, good news. BlacKkKlansman is the director working at his electrifying best. Maybe the optimism of the Obama era robbed him of some of that righteous fury (which would be one explanation for his limp Oldboy remake). Or maybe middle age mellowed him; either way. Trump’s America—Charlottesville. Black Lives Matter and everything else—has brought the old mojo flooding back. Veering from a blaxploitation spoof to an undercover thriller. And ending with a no-punches-pulled real-life coda. BlacKkKlansman is riotously fun one minute. Savagely biting the next.

 

 

 


“The Kiss” (1896)

Directed by William Heise

The first kiss seen at the cinema.

At just 18 seconds long. “The Kiss” (sometimes known as “The May Irwin Kiss”) is one of the earliest films to be shown to the public. Directed by William Heise for Thomas Edison. It recreates a kiss from a popular musical of the time, The Widow Jones.

The sex scene
To be honest. It’s barely a kiss; there’s definitely no tongues or bodily fluids exchanged as actor John Rice tweezes his moustache in preparation before he goes in for what is more of a peck.

Why is it so groundbreaking?
Officially the first ever film to feature two people kissing. It caused an uproar, with one commentator writing that it was “beastly enough in life size on the stage. But magnified to gargantuan proportions and repeated three times over, it is absolutely disgusting.”

 

 

 


More (Full version)

Directed by  Barbet Schroeder 1969

 

Stefan (Klaus Grünberg) is a German student from Lübeck, who has finished his mathematics studies and decides to have an adventure to discard his personal commitments. After hitch-hiking to Paris, he makes friends with Charlie (Michel Chanderli) while playing cards in a Latin Quarter, and they decide to commit a burglary to get some money. At a swinging Left Bank party, Stefan meets a free-spirited-beautiful but elusive American girl called Estelle (Mimsy Farmer) and follows her to Ibiza. The two become lovers, with an atmosphere of easy sex, nude sunbathing and lots of drugs.

He discovers Estelle is involved with former Nazi German man called Dr. Wolf (Heinz Engelmann). Borrowing a villa from a hippie, Stefan saves Estelle from Dr. Wolf only to find she does not really want to be saved, and she introduces him to heroin (referred to by the old street name, “horse”), which she has stolen from Dr. Wolf. Stefan is initially against Estelle using heroin, but having used it previously, she persuades him to try it. Soon Stefan and Estelle are both heavily addicted to heroin. They try to break the addiction using LSD and initially manage to stay clean.

However, after a while, they are both using heroin again. Unable to break free of the addiction, it quickly spirals out of control, leading to a tragic end for Stefan.

J’aime (I love)

Experimental Film – Directed by Alain Lame (French)

 

The painter in the cinema is a fictional character emblematic of the figure of the artist. The creative genius renews the heroic figure of the adventurer. Solitary cowboy in a cultivated and urban universe (Paris or New York). It plays on the contradiction between individual freedom and the forms of social organization (family, recognition, exhibition, etc.).

Alain Lame shows us in his experimental film the art market. It refers to all transactions on works of art and works of art. Also, we will see the different actors of the art trade that are the artists. Merchants and antique dealers. Gallery or brokers. Collectors and amateurs.

Finally, we watch an organized bulimia !

 

 


Human Flow

Directed  by Ai WeiWei – Pekin (China)

 

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.

Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future.

Human.

Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

Amazon Studios and Participant Media present, in association with AC Films, Human Flow, a film directed by Ai Weiwei. Human Flow is produced by Ai Weiwei, Chin-Chin Yap and Heino Deckert and executive produced by Andrew Cohen of AC Films with Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann of Participant Media.

Mary Page Marlowe

By Tracy Letts. Directed by Lila Neugebauer.

2NSTAGE Theater –  18/31 July, New-York (Us)

 

Tracy Letts’s fascinating Mary Page Marlowe presents a portrait of its title character in the form of a jigsaw puzzle. The play’s 11 scenes, each about eight minutes long, span nearly 70 years in the life of a Midwestern baby boomer, but they are presented out of chronological order; each new piece connects to others and fills in gaps until a larger picture emerges. But the play resists its own tendency toward neatness through a central conceit: Mary Page, at various ages, is embodied by six different actors (and one prop baby), a powerfully literal rebuke to the idea of a stable self. “I’m not the person I am,” Mary Page tells a psychotherapist—and she’s certainly, obviously, not who she used to be.

Orphan Black’s

Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany plays Mary Page in her twenties and thirties; we hear her dissect her joyless extramarital affairs in therapy and then watch her, later/earlier, engage in a hotel-room tryst. Susan Pourfar takes the reins for Mary Page’s forties, when she labors to raise kids, and Kellie Overbey plays her at 50, when she crashes into reality; Blair Brown takes over for the final decade of Mary Page’s life, when she has softened a bit with age and resignation. All four are excellent, as is most of the rest of the cast—18 actors in all, many appearing in only a single scene apiece.

While the play’s wide scope keeps the audience at a bird’s-eye remove, its components are vivid close-up snapshots. Director Lila Neugebauer keeps Mary Page in hard, revealing focus even as the character sometimes smudges herself in denial or passivity. (Substance abuse is a recurring issue: a need to be out of control.) Mary Page Marlowe combines moments of crisis into a longer view of time. It approaches life—this one life—with something that feels like wisdom.

Zoé

Directed by Drake Doremus – July 2018 (US)

 

In a time of haute technology and post-Black Mirror consciousness, what better time than now for a movie like Zoe to be made? Léa Seydoux and Ewan McGregor star in this romantic sci-fi where synthetic humans are normal in society and compatibility robots can discern whether two people are a perfect match. Although many movies have exhausted the tropes of the role of technology in relationships, Zoe seems to delve further into the idea, specifically with artificial intelligence’s potential to reduce loneliness.

 

 

 


Call me by your name

Directed by Luca Guadagnino, Italy

 

‘Call Me by Your Name’, Winner of the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, has delighted audiences at such festivals as Toronto, Sundance and the Berlinale. Elio spends every summer with his parents at their villa in the northern Italian countryside, where he enjoys the sun, reading, peace and quiet and the company of his friends. The summer that Elio turns 17, he meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student working as an intern for his father.

 

 

 


Mamma Mia

Directed by Ol Parker – July 2018 (US)

 

What’s better than a Mamma Mia sequel? A Mamma Mia sequel featuring Cher, of course. Although the 72-year-old is somehow playing the mother of the 69-year-old Meryl Streep, it’s her first on-screen role in eight years, and what a way to return. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! finds Sophie 10 years later, now pregnant and wondering how her mother felt when she was in the same position. Cue the flashback – we see how a young Donna got herself into a sticky situation with Bill, Sam and Harry. With ABBA songs old and new, a sparkling cast list and an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza planned if the trailer is anything to go by, it looks like it’ll be the perfect summer movie to go and see with friends.

 

 

 


WALK WITH ME

Max Pugh and Marc J. Francis (French/Britich)

 

Heartfelt, if not entirely satisfying, Walk With Meprovides an up-close glimpse of the life of devotion, focusing on the monks and nuns who live at a rural monastery led by Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Credited with introducing the practice of mindfulness to the West, the 90-year-old has been limited in his activities as the result of a recent stroke, but for a long time he appeared regularly on the lecture circuit, and many Americans (including this one) have heard him speak and been guided through meditations by him. To convey the powerful calm of his presence would be a tall order for any film. The documentary by Max Pugh and Marc J. Francis certainly has its potent moments. But its mix of the contemplative and the observational finally proves more illustrative than immersive.

35 DAYS OF FILM

Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery – JULY 9 – AUGUST 22, 2018

Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to present 35 days of film, a group video screening of films dating from 1965 to 2018 presented in linear format on a single screen at the gallery’s Chelsea location this summer from July 9th to August 22nd.

The exhibition features a selection of films by a dozen artists whose respective work, while disparate in tone and subject matter, all highlight the aesthetic and political significance of film as a means of communication. Against the backdrop of today’s cultural environment where social media plays a dominant role in both disseminating and arbitrating public discourse on art and politics, these films call for a re-examination of the screen as the stage upon which reality can be reflected and changed.

The exhibition includes films by Monica Bonvicini, GCC, General Idea, Mary Kelly, Christopher Miner, Pat O’Neill, Hardeep Pandhal, Pope.L, Martha Rosler and Jacolby Satterwhite.

Review: In ‘Araby,’ the Story of a Wandering Laborer

 Directed by João Dumans, Affonso Uchoa 2017 Brazil

 

Araby begins by observing the day-to-day of Andre, a teenager who lives in an industrial area in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. After a local factory worker, Cristiano, has an accident on the job, he leaves behind a handwritten journal, which the boy proceeds to read with relish. The film shifts into road-movie mode to recount the story of Cristiano, an ex-con and eternal optimist who journeys across Brazil in search of work, enduring no shortage of economic hardship but gaining an equal amount of self-knowledge. Invigorating and ever surprising, Araby is a humanist work of remarkable poise and maturity.

 

 

 


Apocalyptic, unfathomable essay film from the legendary Jean-Luc Godard. (French)

Jean-Luc Godard presents himself as a one-man YouTube in The Image Book (Le Livre d’Image, also known as The Picture Book). The old dog of the New Wave is as provocative, and impenetrable, as ever in a documentary essay / installation piece shaped around a blizzard of images culled from artworks, news footage and a vast sampling of classic films. From Hitchcock’s Vertigo to Pasolini’s Salò via Joan Crawford in Johnny Guitar.

The film is broken into chapters, with recurring images of hands and trains. There are voices on the soundtrack, including Godard’s. Writing on the screen and words that are mostly translated into English, but sometimes not. Watching the film is like trying to tune a radio. That stubbornly refuses to stay on the same wavelength.

Buster Keaton

Godard, now 87, certainly seems to be in apocalyptic mood as he focuses heavily on images of violence and suffering. Humans have an innate capacity for cruelty and self-destruction. Consuming the finite resources of a planet that we seem to conveniently forget that we share with other species. The recurring scenes of trains. Including, of course, Buster Keaton in The General – must, one assumes. Speak to the Holocaust, when railway tracks marked the road to hell.

Later in the film, Godard turns his attention to the Middle East in a chapter headed ‘Joyful Arabia’. The title of a work by Alexandre Dumas. He chastises the West for having no real interest in the people or the culture. The promise of prosperity from a foreign land lies at the heart of all colonialism.

There are themes and concerns that can be teased out from this largely unfathomable film. But it is always challenging. Maybe it is something that needs to be experienced and absorbed. Rather than dissected and understood. If it is to be Godard’s last feature then there seems something appropriate in his conclusion that ‘there needs to be a revolution.’

 

 

 


‘Three Faces’ Film Review: Once Again, Jafar Panahi Is Modest But Profound

Cannes 2018: The Iranian director is officially forbidden from making films for 20 years, but “Three Faces”. Is the latest exceptional work he’s made in the face of that ban.

 

For the past few years, Iranian director Jafar Panahi has been sending a series of quietly confounding films to festivals that he’s not allowed to attend. “Three Faces,” which premiered this weekend at the Cannes Film Festival. Is the latest of these little examples of his cinematic sleight-of-hand, and another Panahi gem that has more on its mind than it lets on.

“Three Faces” is typical of the canny director’s output in the way it’s modest but profound. Leisurely but urgent, a portrait of a country disguised as a meandering road movie.

But it’s not like he’s using misdirection or only pretending to be modest and leisurely. Panahi’s films are all those things at once. And this one is particularly timely at this year’s Cannes. In the way he manages, without openly criticizing his home country. To sketch a portrait of how the refusal to give women much agency in their lives is ingrained in the society.

Wim Wenders: ‘Pope speaks directly to viewer in new film’
Wim Wenders, writer and director of the new film “Pope Francis – A Man of His Word”, in an exclusive interview with Vatican News, says the movie allows the Holy Father “to speak directly about all his concerns and all the issues that matter to him.”
As the Holy Father celebrates 5 years of his Papacy, we’re going to preview the trailer of your new film: “Pope Francis – A Man of His Word”. What does this film mean to you? How did the film come to be, and what do you expect?

WW: Not in my wildest dreams would I have expected to make a film about Pope Francis. When I got the letter with an invitation to come to the Vatican and discuss with Don Dario Viganó the possibility of a film about the Pope. I first took a deep breath, and then I walked around the block. It seemed that such a project would represent a huge responsibility, at least it would be a whole different kind of task than any film I had made before. But of course I would go and find out what Don Dario had in mind.

Pope Francis – A Man of His Word
13/03/2018

It turned out that he offered me Carte Blanche, let me write a concept and define myself the film I could imagine. And the Vatican would not interfere, and would open its archive for us. I said yes. Of course.

It needed a while for my concept to take shape, for the financing to fall into place and for the first shoot with Pope Francis to be organized. From that first interview to the finished film it took almost 2 years, 3 more long interview sessions and a shoot in Assisi. The home town of Saint Francis. And months and months in the editing room, until the film had taken its final shape. And it fulfilled the high hopes I had for it: that it would allow Pope Francis to speak directly to every viewer and listener. Almost face to face, about all his concerns and all the issues that matter to him. 

The Pope was involved in the shooting… Did anything happen on the film set that has particularly impressed you?

WW: Oh yes! I was very impressed how open Pope Francis was to each question, and how directly and spontaneously he answered. And after each of our four long sessions. He took time to shake everybody’s hands, and did not make any difference between producer or director or electrician or assistant.

Movies

You once said the Pope “is a true example of a man who lives what he preaches”. What well-wishes do you have for him today?

WW: I had the highest regard for Pope Francis before. I ever met him, just from seeing him on television and from reading his sermons. Or his encyclicals. But meeting him eye to eye. Then also seeing and hearing him every day. In the editing room. Not only in our own interviews. But also his many talks all over the world, to refugees. Prisoners. Scientists, children, rich or poor or regular people. Made me realize how courageous he was. How fearless. And finally, that would be my wish: that he never loses that relentless courage.

Whenever he left our set, the last thing he said was. “Pray for me!”. And that wasn’t just his way of saying good-bye. He meant it. And I’ve heard him ask the same from people all over the world.  From all these people (including my little film crew). Finally, for whom he represents a man whose word we can trust in. That has become such a rare and precious thing today. A man who is not acting for himself, but for the common good.

TATE MODERN : DATE & TIME 19 June 2018 at 19.00–21.30  Parviz Kimiavi, Mogholha, 1973 | Photo &copy; Parviz Kimiavi

An outstanding ‘collage’ of past. Present and future Kimiavi’s iconoclastic masterpiece. The Mongols is a reflection on modernity and cultural imperialism in 1970s Iran. The self-reflective film creates a critical reflection on the expanding presence of TV screens and antennas in Iran’s. Poor villages with a re-enactment of the Mongols 13th century invasion. Its innovation and self-reflection led the French critic Henri Chapier to label Kimiavi ‘Le Godard Iranian.’

From mathematics. Physical. Philosophy and art. He always wanted to see the world around him as if it was the first time. Also, he always felt the sublime strangeness. Terrifying and impressive to be.

Otherwise, he/she only sees him/herself as in a regular mirror.

Alejandro Berconsky

Sculptor

Location : France

 

Alejandro Berconsky was born in Buenos Aires in 1969. He moved to Caracas, Venezuela, with his family where he grew up. He began his studies in media but soon discovered that his passion was elsewhere.

His work oscillates between beauty and aggression. Sensuality and hardness. The organic nature and the geometry of form, like in his series entitled “Spheroids”.

From the spheres and the spheroids, Berconsky moves on to the “Amalgams”. A series of hybrid creations. Which are as close as it gets to depicting the anthropomorphic form. This work, often provocative and with a tongue-in-cheek playfulness. Reveals the artist’s sense of humour. Like several pieces of his “Amalgam” series. Where he incorporates hundreds of colourful marble balls.

Tracy Sarroff

Painter, Mix-Media

Location : Melbourne (Australia)

 

My practice is cross-media. Ideas about ecology. Also, to overlapping concerns between art. Science underlie many of my projects. While their shape stems from the basic structural composition of living things. In addition, their growth and transformation. Patterns, structures and fragments are extracted from the natural world and recombined. What prevails is the interest in our relationships with ecology and science. The creative boundaries of what is both imaginary and real.

Principally logs and steel nails. These are transformed with great skill. And hours of industrious toil into lustrous and refined objects. Their highly polished and burnished surfaces express. An attention to detail and a painstaking concern. For disclosing the innate beauty of the material. These unique forms are derived. From the interdependence of man-made and natural. Their structural integrity relies. On the contrasting combination of steel and wood.

Cristina Barr

Painter

Location : Paris (France)
Cristina Barr was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She lives in Paris for 17 years.
I paint mainly portraits, human beings. Conscientiously, and with a great sense for beauty. I portray models to appeal the beholder, at first sight. Yet, this is not the main motive of my art. Unconscientiously, I move away from the exact copy of reality to express emotional. Spiritual, or metaphysical states of mind. Layer after layer of paint to enter the psychological space of the subjects. Ttheir psyche and the world around them that is transformed. By their own appreciation of reality, in an interplay between abstract and figurative.

Some of my portraits are linked to literary works of English Literature Classics. Embodying personal imagery or collective symbolism. They reflect my ever-lasting love for books and my former career as an English teacher.

I am the author of the novel Violencia de Género, and have also written short stories in Spanish. I am currently working on my second novel.

Trevor Kiernander

Painter

Location : Montreal (Canada)

My work takes visual cues from real and virtual environments. Examining, assembling and also deconstructing space. Exploring figure/ground relationships and the representation of architectural motifs. Starting with visual ideas drawn from photographs of buildings and landscapes. I break down and reconstruct. A world formed of dislocated and interwoven partial planes. Lines and shapes.

My paintings attempt to create dynamic tension between formal elements. Such as splashes of colour, shapes reminiscent of the outlines of architectural structures. Dissecting lines, charcoal under-drawings. And masking tape intentionally left in place or used to paint hard edges. Layered over these are occasionally solid blocks. Of dark earth tones that occlude parts of the image. Producing a sense of realistic three-dimensional space. Part of which is obscured from view.

Alexis Denuy

Painter, Poet

Location : French

Alexis Denuy’s paintings are composed of simplicity and wisdom. We think of the Little Prince, we think of Giotto. We think of universes that connect the wonderful to childhood and the sacred to the human. It is in this line that Alexis works. Deeply optimistic. It never removes the dignity of the human being and despite the suffering. Death watching him, he gives him a chance. To gather? To redeem himself? Take back his life in hand?
Voluntarily, Alexis does not put an end to his compositions, which sometimes seem like sketches stopped in time. Seizures on the spot and that the imagination can interpret and complete as it pleases. He seeks to capture this indescribable link that connects things together. And if the characters are waiting, it’s because the question of the sacred is asked.

” I, first, look at the situation, see if there is the condition of giving plasticity. If there is a poetry there involved to photograph and from there I start painting. All my paintings are based on photography, and after this process. I do color study, and the situation that it is currently representing.”

I work from intuition rather than pre meditiation realising. That when something appears of its own accord it has a presence uniquely different from one that is manipulated. As work evolves texture and surface will dictate. The final image which will alter considerably during the working process. I retain an interest in exploring materials. And their properties while developing new ideas on a variety of surfaces.

I love art, it’s one of my greatest passion’s in life. The other is practising Chen style Tai Chi Chaun. I am currently doing a Mental Health art project. That explores my relationship to a close relatives illness of Paranoid Schizophrenia bought. About by drug addictions that have led to a ‘Drugs induced Pscychosis’. I document my observations as starting points for visual expression creating art work that has been informed by the process of mental decline and instability through a long and enduring serious mental illness.

My work responds to the medical interventions. And processes that have taken place in the treatment of my relative as well as the day-to-day care. Management and challenges that frequently present themselves.
I have used a figure in my work to reflect and inform the many situations. Challenges and feelings that have arisen.

Chris Dunseath

Sculptor, Painter

Location : England

My sculpture is concerned with a diverse range of concepts. And is made out of a variety of materials including wood. stone. Bronze and paper. The content has ranged from an interest in transformation. And change to its current involvement with aspects of theoretical physics. I agree with the physicist Richard Feynman. When he refers to the inadequacy of science. To capture the marvel of our universe. For the need for art to help bridge. The gap between the tangible and the intangible.

ALAN FRANKLIN

Painter, Sculptor

Location : England

My practice follows two paths. Drawings and sculptures, which are essentially abstract and process led. And sculpture which is more ideas led and externally referential.

I like the notion of ‘making a drawing’. Which suggests the physics and the performance of the activity. I think of my drawings as flat sculptures, not drawings for sculptures, but constructions of materials, Which occupy a very shallow space. I avoid deliberate illusion or external reference. And often employ repetition as a means of building structure and a sense of labour.

Gerard Mas

Sculptor

Location : Spain

Spanish artist Gerard Mas from Girona creates playful and penetrating works that fuse contemporary references and gestures with busts reminiscent of 15th-century Florentine sculpture. Mas’ synthesis produces a humorous recontextualization. Women of the Renaissance chewing bubble gum appear to be alive and well in our contemporary moment.

Alexander Johnson

Painter

Location : Laughton (England)

My work focusses on stories that I fear are in danger of being forgotten. Sometimes these stories relate back to WW2 and my father’s history as a reconnaissance photographer. Sometimes they are my own recollections and thoughts. I make charcoal drawings that inform the paintings. Which are then slowly built up from a palimpsest of lines. And gradually distilled into something more simple. Until only essential information remains.

This process iresults in a textural quality that unites all the work on canvas. I like the working process to be visible in the finished object. And have a hand-made quality that is an antidote to the shiny screen-images. That surround us in the twenty-first century. I come from a pre-digital age and find that most of what still interests me does too.

Delpha hudson

Painter, Sculptor

Location : Penzance (England)

Delpha Hudson is a British artist born in Surrey in 1963. She currently works from her studio in Bread Street, Penzance. From the late 90s her performance practice explored many aspects of women. And the self, using the body. Masquerade, city spaces.  And maternal and historical tropes. She continues to use materials in performative ways. Working with small clay sculpture, objects and assemblage. Delpha Hudson’s paintings explore women’s lives. Using very physical processes like dripping bitumen paint from a stick.

The process is messy and visceral. As well as unique as even mistakes can never be exactly replicated. The figures that emerge use gestural motifs to provoke. And engender empathy and understanding. Delpha Hudson’s work uses palimpsest. Humour and contradiction to engage audiences in seeing and experiencing mothers. And women’s lives in new ways. Communicating the ambivalence of women’s live and mothering.

L’absolu of Boris Sibé

Theater Nest – April 23/ May 4, 2019 Thionville, (France)

 

The Absolute is first and foremost an experience outside the walls. Since the viewer will enter, not in a theater. But in a huge silo of silver metal. Designed by the company Les Choses de Rien. In this strange circular marquee of sheet metal. On four floors, the audience will be overhanging the artist. Circassian along two helical ramps. This industrial space will become metamorphosed. In turn, image well. Court. Chasm. Way to infinity in a poetic show. Interrogating our usual perceptions.

Blanca Li Company

Theater National of Dance Chaillot – Nov 08 to 15, 2018

 

Beware, this is a committed show. In an intricate fusion between visual perfection. Ecological urgency and hypersensitive feelings. The choreographer Blanca Li shakes our consciousness. Whilst delighting the senses.

Air, water, earth, fire. To talk about the threats weighing on our planets. Blanca Li summons the four elements. On an immaculate stage. She implements with an enchanting and unique scenography. The complex and ambiguous relationship that we have with our environment. A veil of aerial tulle imagined by Pierre Attrait is in turn a cloud. The ground, the sky, or wind. And becomes the base of suggestive videos. In the midst of the recreated nature.

15 dancers accustomed to all styles embody our humanity. Their organic dance elates beauty. But also the fragility of an ecosystem in danger of which we are just one of the components. The lyric or percussive music composed by Tao Gutierrez intensely underlines. The multiple forms of our relationship to the world. Produced by Chaillot last season. This creation acts as an alarm for our future and is more than ever of concern today.

Judson Dance Theater Performance : “The Work Is Never Done”

MOMA – Until Feb 03, 2019 New-Yok (USA)

 

For a brief period in the early 1960s. A group of choreographers. Visual artists. Composers, and filmmakers gathered in Judson Memorial Church. A socially engaged Protestant congregation in New York’s Greenwich Village. For a series of workshops that ultimately redefined what counted as dance. The performances that evolved from these workshops. Incorporated everyday movements—gestures drawn from the street or the home. Their structures were based on games. Simple tasks, and social dances. Spontaneity and unconventional methods of composition were emphasized. The Judson artists investigated the very fundamentals of choreography. Stripping dance of its theatrical conventions. And the result, according to Village Voice critic Jill Johnston was the most exciting new dance in a generation.

Martin Zimmermann – EINS ZWEI DREI

Biennale of the Dance of Lyon – Until 30 Sept, 2018 Villeurbanne (French)

 

Packed with visual collisions. Zimmermann’s wordless theatre has circus. Dance and visual-arts roots. Here, with live piano accompaniment. A tasteful museum space catalyses. In tragi-comic manner. The violence and complexity of human passion As the three characters (at once actors. Dancers and circus performers). Come up against the institution’s walls and their own limits. And things go irresistibly askew. What chance survival. Will the seeds of conflict finally cause them to snap, or rewrite the rules?

Saburo Teshigawara / Rihoko Sato

National Theater of Dance – Sept 27 / Oct 5, 2018 Paris (France)

 

As one of the most influential Japanese creators of his time. Saburo Teshigawara renews on stage with his accomplice and dancer Rihoko Sato for The Idiot. Not really an adaptation, more a reinterpretation..

“I knew it would be impossible to create a choreography taken from such a novel”. Saburo Teshigawara said about Dostoievski’s The Idiot. “But this impossibility has been key to approach and create something completely new. A dance that only exists in the present”. A duo transforming each voice, each cry or murmur into movement. It is not however question of a narrative dance. But more the idea of recreating a body language. The gestural grammar developed and magnified by Rihoko Sato and Saburo Teshigawara are rich in tempo. vVrtuoso and slow motion. The result is a labyrinth of sensations in which one can get los. Or find oneself. The Idiot, after major pieces such as Flexible SilenceGlass Tooth or Miroku, testifies once again to Saburo Teshigawara’s creativity. Whether it be with group or duo pieces, he uses the body as an amazing artistic laboratory.

RAMBERT – LIFE IS A DREAM

The Lowry – Oct 10/12, 2018 Salford (England)

 

Life is a Dream is a spectacular new dance show from the Olivier Award-winning choreographer Kim Brandstrup. Alongside dramatic. Lyrical dancing from Rambert’s brilliant ensemble. Imagery from legendary filmmakers. The Quay Brothers creates a dream-like experience. And a live orchestra playing the rich music of Witold Lutosławski. Adds to the otherworldly atmosphere.

They combine in a contemporary re-imagining of a classic play by Calderón. A study of desires as recognisable in today’s world as at any time in the past 400 years. The longing for authentic experience, and the need to dream.

Split

Sydney Opera House – 08/12 Aug, 2018 Sydney (Australia)

 

Two women dance on stage inside an increasingly small space. One is clothed. The other naked, both moving in perfect sync with the other. This is Split a  work of contemporary dance by fearless Australian Lucy Guerin.

 

After a successful run in 2017. Split is returning to the stage to awe audiences with its stark. But beautiful portrayal of power, vulnerability and synchronicity. Bringing Split to life on stage are dancers Melanie Lane and Lilian Steiner. The latter of which has won a Helpmann Award. For best dancer in 2017 (with Melanie Lane nominated in the same category).

As the size of the area in which the dancers move decreases. The choreography becomes fraught with tension. Ambiguity surrounds the performance. The dancers locked in an struggle. Are they in a relationship. Or are they two halves of the same person?

Split isn’t explicit in its meaning and it doesn’t need to be. Also, with the powerful performances of Lane and Steiner. Enthralling audiences.Backed. By a rhythmic and complex percussive. Score by UK composer Scanner (real name Robin Rimbaud). Finally, Split is an hour of frantic, mesmerising contemporary dance.

Alain Platel

Festival de Marseille 06/07/08 July – France

 

For more than thirty years, the choreographer and director Alain Platel and his collective, Ballets C de la B (C for Contemporary, B for Belgium), has constantly pushed the boundaries of dance, theatre and music. A unique combination of grace and triviality, the grotesque and the sublime, charged with human fragility, his work takes audiences to the limits of human suffering with delicacy and empathy.

Alain Platel trained as a remedial teacher and is a self-taught theatre director. In 1984, with friends and family members. Also, he set up a dance company operating as a collective. The ballets C de la B. Emma (1988). Bonjour Madame (1993). La tristeza complice (1995) and Lets Op Bach (1998). Brought them international renown. With the author Arne Sierens. Hence, he staged several shows supporting the development of the children’s theatre company Victoria in Ghent. In 2003 he staged Wolf for the dance. Then the choral project. Coup de Chœurs for the opening of KVS. Which marked the beginning. Of a close collaboration with Fabrizio Cassol. In 2006. VSPRS heralded a change of direction. Finally, the exuberance of his early. Shows giving way to greater introspection. And nervousness and revealing a world of impulses and aspirations. As well as violence (Nine Finger (2007). With Benjamin Verdonck and Fumiyo Ikeda).

For Pina

This approach then evolved (Pitié ! (2008). Out of Context. For Pina (2010). Exploring how to express intense feelings and aspiring to something beyond the individual. In 2010 he staged Gardenia in collaboration with Frank Van Laecke. Then in 2012, for the Teatro Real in Madrid. Produced C(H)ŒURS, which explored the dangerous beauty of the group and was his most ambitious project ever. The political overtones of his shows such as Tauberbach (2014). And Coup fatal (2014) are rooted in his zest for life and the energy that bursts onto the stage. Expressing ways of living and surviving in terrible circumstances.

The same instinct for life drove the dancers. In their quest for possibie  in Nicht schlafen (2016). In parallel. Alain Platel works on more personal large-scale choreographic projects. Also, and has been involved in several films on dance. With the British filmmaker Sophie Fiennes. I Sing in 2001.  And working alone (Les Ballets de-ci de-là  in 2006).
