Hyperrealism Sculpture: This is not a body

Hyperrealism Sculpture: This is not a body

Hyperrealism Sculpture: This is not a body
Tour and Taxis – Until Dec 12, 2021 Brussels (Belgium)

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Hyperrealism Sculpture. This is not a body ” is an exhibition on hyperrealism. An artistic movement born in the United States in the 1960s and whose techniques are still explored by many contemporary artists.

The exhibition presents a series of hyperrealistic sculptures that challenge our vision of art. Reality, art or copy? The hyperrealist artist abandons the abstract. And tries to create the most faithful representation possible of nature. They represent the human body so realistically that viewers start to wonder if it is real. The works of art thus create a feeling of alienation, without losing any of their meaning.

René Magritte.

The title of the exhibition refers to the famous work by René Magritte ‘This is not a pipe’, which questions the relationship between art and reality. The artists, who are exhibited at La Boverie, strive to represent the human body as faithfully and as vividly as possible.

Elmgreen & Dragset “The nervous system”

Elmgreen & Dragset “The nervous system”

Elmgreen & Dragset “The nervous system”
Pace Gallery – Nov 10 to Dec 18 2021 New-York (US)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pace is pleased to present an exhibition of new and recent works by artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset at its flagship gallery in New York City. Marking the Berlin artists’ first major exhibition with Pace since joining the gallery in 2020. This presentation runs from November 9 to December 18. The Nervous System, which includes a very narrative domestic scene of 11 works. Including eight new pieces, recalls the acclaimed double exhibition by Elmgreen & Dragset. Entitled The Collectors, in the Nordic and Danish pavilions of the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009.

Since 1995.

Elmgreen & Dragset, who have been collaborating since 1995. Will occupy the first floor of Pace’s New York space for this presentation. Creating an almost surreal depiction of a dysfunctional house within the gallery walls. Showcasing various sculptural elements that together create a complex set of associations. The exhibit encourages viewers to derive their own interpretations of the scene from the many different clues in the exhibit. For example, five figures are presented as figurative sculptures. Although the relationships between these characters are not explicitly described. In this presentation, Elmgreen & Dragset reversed the experience of reading a novel. Providing images but forcing viewers to construct the story.

In the world.

Elmgreen & Dragset’s extraordinary and large-scale sculptural installations have been shown around the world. Among their permanent public works is Prada Marfa, a reproduction of a Prada store erected in Marfa, Texas in 2005. Bent Pool in Miami, persecuted under National Socialist rule in Berlin. Their site-specific ceiling installation, The Hive, which was unveiled at the new Moynihan Train Hall in New York City in December 2020. At the heart of the artists’ practice are investigations into the social histories of public spaces. Their works are often imbued with political and emotional resonance.

Sharon Lockhart: Noa Eshkol’s Movement Notation
Guggenheim Bilbao – Nov 4 to Feb 27, 2022 Bilbao (Spain)

 

 

 

 

 

The video installations and photographic works of Sharon Lockhart (b.1964, Norwood, USA) pay particular attention to human action. To its modes of representation, whether social or in solitude. From artistic work to choreography, she highlights the complexity and poetic depth of a simple movement. Among Lockhart’s many investigations on this subject, reflection on the researcher’s work. Israeli theorist and choreographer Noa Eshkol (b.1895; d.1969) occupies an exceptional place in the artist’s last decade of production.

Four Exercises in Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation.

Eshkol is known for her pioneering efforts to transcribe human movements. In a writing system capable of recording almost all the modalities of movement of the body. In the installation Four Exercises in Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation (2011). One of Eshkol’s most accomplished students leads a series of exercises in this system based on strict compositional patterns. It raises the possibility of articulating messages through body language as if the space were a textual medium. The performer’s concentration and awareness of each movement give the performance equal serenity and power. The silence of the film further intensifies the purity of the gestures. The scores adopt three-dimensional geometric shapes in Lockhart’s photographs. This installation is the result of a special collaboration with the Thyssen Bornemisza Art 21 (TBA21) and The Wellbeing Project.

The Shed – Oct 29 to Dec19, 2021 New-York (US)

 

 

 

 

 

In Fragile Future, multidisciplinary artists DRIFT transform The Shed with sound, movement and film. Their experiential installations play on our senses and help us imagine the positive. Alternative solutions to the problems facing our planet. DRIFT’s monumental exhibition and special performance series inspire a reconnection with our planet and its natural processes, as well as an empathy for non-living objects.

ANOHNI.

Featuring a soundtrack created by ANOHNI, Fragile Future takes audiences on a journey through a series of interconnected installations. Exploring the universal desire to seek connection. The power to relinquish control when adopting change. Since the start of their careers, DRIFT founders Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta have addressed pressing environmental themes in their work. In order to encourage their audience to think differently about their connection to the Earth. The exhibition installations – multitudes of shimmering lights that cross the gallery. Like glowing seeds caught in the wind from massive concrete blocks, or Drifters. Floating magically in the air. Providing an atmosphere of hope to imagine a different world.

17,000 square feet.

On certain dates, Drifters becomes an immersive surreal performance that spans the 17,000 square foot McCourt space of The Shed. In this unique performance. Thus, a congregation of Drifters dance to the tunes in an ethereal atmosphere, in counterpoint to an ANOHNI soundtrack.

Ron Mueck: 25 years of sculpture 1996-2021
Thaddaeus Ropac – Oct 13 to Nov 13, 2021, London (UK)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Mueck 25 years of sculpture, 1996-2021. The artist’s first exhibition at Thaddaeus Ropac, will mark the most comprehensive gallery study of the internationally renowned sculptor to date. From his biggest to his smallest works. The exhibition features Mueck’s most famous sculptures from a career spanning two and a half decades. Presented alongside new and unpublished works. His unparalleled eye for physical and emotional detail traces the full spectrum of the human experience. From the beginning of life during pregnancy and childbirth. Until its end in death, with unsettling power.

Dead Dad.

The artist’s best-known work, Dead Dad (1996-97), may be on display in the UK for the first time in over 20 years. It was first featured in the Royal Academy’s landmark exhibition Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection (1997), which helped establish the artist’s international reputation. Acquired by Charles Saatchi when it was created, the work has since been part of the Stefan T. Edlis collection, whose sculpture is on loan.

The play stopped most of the [Sensation] visitors… in their tracks. Dead Dad was something so shockingly real and shockingly unreal at the same time as unexpected trauma. He left an indelible mark. One of Mueck’s earliest works, he immediately established his uniqueness.

The seven ages of man.

In art historian Jasper Sharp’s essay for the exhibition, he examines Mueck’s sculptures through the prism of the seven ages of man. Referring to William Shakespeare’s monologue “Everybody’s a Scene”, As You Like It (1623). The works on display trace the full spectrum of human experience. From “the womb to the grave” as Robert Rosenblum describes it, including the infant. the schoolboy, the young lover, the soldier, the middle-aged justice, the eldest and the “last scene of everything … second childishness and simple forgetfulness”.

Picasso and his image in East and West Germany

Picasso and his image in East and West Germany

Picasso, shared and divided.
The artist and his image in East and West Germany.
Museum Ludwig – Sep 25 to Jan 30, 2022 Köln (Germany)

 

 

 

 

What do we associate with Pablo Picasso? And what associations with him did the German people have in mind during the postwar years, when he was at the height of his glory? Much more than us: it is the central idea of ​​the exhibition, which reveals a forgotten scale, tension and productivity of these appropriations. It is not just about the artist, but his audience, who interpreted Picasso’s art in very different ways in the capitalist West and in the socialist East. The German Picasso was divided, but this division also stimulated reception. Because everyone questioned their art, he had something to say for everyone.

Political works.

The exhibition presents political works. Like the painting Massacre in Korea (1951) at the Picasso Museum in Paris. These stand alongside some 150 pieces reflecting the impact of Picasso’s work. As well as a theater curtain from the Berliner Ensemble on which Bertolt Brecht had “my brother Picasso’s militant peace dove” painted.

The mystery of Picasso.

Picasso served as a figurehead and symbol for both systems and in the two German states. He was a member of the French Communist Party and supported the liberation struggles as well as the peace conferences. But he lived in the West and allowed bourgeois critics to conventionalize him as an apolitical genius, “the mystery of Picasso”. What works were shown under socialism. Which ones under capitalism? How was his work transmitted? Has the West seen only art, and the East its politics? And how did the artist see things himself? Picasso, Shared and Divided examines the image people took of Picasso’s paintings in the two Germanies. One of the targets is the Picasso collection by Peter and Irene Ludwig, which remains one of the most important to this day. When the Ludwigs made parts of it available to the GDR, they multiplied the number of works exhibited there by several.

Eran Schaerf.

Two new works have been commissioned for the exhibition. The exhibition architecture designed by artist Eran Schaerf connects the exhibitions without prioritizing works of art and their social use. The wooden installations, diagonal partitions and bare walls of the museum give the impression of a deliberate incompleteness. The individual exhibitions remain anchored in their context. How we make them our own remains evident. Peter Nestler’s film Picasso in Vallauris was shot in January 2020 to incorporate Picasso’s War and Peace mural in the exhibition. The film focuses on Picasso’s production as well as his political connections and connections, and it looks at the people who live in Vallauris today in that context.
