    Germaine Kruipp: A Possibility of an Abstraction, Circle Dance

    The Dutch artist Germaine Kruip (b. 1970) works in a variety of media. To create her work A Possibility of an Abstraction, Circle Dance that she presents at Le Mouvement, the 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition in Biel/Bienne in Switzerland, she worked with dervishes. The ecstatic circle dance is a means of falling into religious ecstasy and making contact with the universe. Usually, the dervishes wear their traditional clothes and hats. In Germaine Kruip’s piece, they just wear simple dark trousers and white shirts. Performed on the station square in Biel/Bienne, the performance could be seen as a kind of protest, or just a show of one of the many street artists in the city.

    Simone Forti: Huddle / Le Mouvement, Biel/Bienne

    Posted: 10-September-2014, 2:41am EDT by contact@vernissage.tv (VernissageTV)
    Archivo adjunto [Descargar]

    Simone Forti (b. 1935) is considered as one of the key figures of what is known as ?post-modern?. She is known for a style of dancing that is based on basic everyday movements, such as children’s playground activities, and improvisation. Currently, her work is shown in a retrospective exhibition at Museum der Moderne in Salzburg. For the 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition, Le Mouvement, in Biel/Bienne, she presents her historic work Huddle (1961). In this piece, a group of dancers is made to form a closely-knit mass, hugging one another in a huddle. Members break off from the group, and climb over the mass. It’s a temporary, sculptural monument to working together.

    Exhibition text:
    The Italian-born, Los Angeles-based choreographer Simone Forti (b. 1935) is one of the key figures of what is known as ?post-modern? and one of its most radical forms: improvisation. For Le Mouvement, she presents her historic work Huddle (1961). In this basic improvisational masterpiece piece, a group of dancers is made to form a closely-knit mass, hugging one another in a huddle, members taken turns breaking off from the group, and climbing over the mass, which supports him or her. As much about community as it as about the hard fact of the body (imagine a knee in your back), this performance enacts what it represents: a temporary, sculptural monument to working together.

    The exhibition Gustave Courbet at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen (Switzerland) presents pioneering works from all phases of the French painter who led the Realist movement in 19th-century French painting. At the heart of the show are Gustave Courbet’s female nudes beside water and his famous painting The Origin of the World (L’Origine du monde, 1866), a work that still provokes today. The exhibition presents works from all phases of Gustave Courbet’s career, including a number of paintings that have rarely been seen in public. On display are self-portraits, scenes capturing Courbet’s native countryside (pictures of secluded streams and springs, rock formations and grottoes), views of the sea, and winters capes. This video provides you with an exhibition walk-through on the occasion of the Vernissage of the show.

    The exhibition was created by Ulf Küster, curator at the Fondation Beyeler, and is part of the “Courbet Season”, a joint venture with the Musées d?art et d?histoire in Geneva, which is mounting a concurrent show in the Musée Rath that focuses upon Courbet?s years in Switzerland.

    The 12th edition of the Swiss Sculpture Exhibition Biel/Bienne (Switzerland) is entitled Le Mouvement. The contemporary art exhibition is dedicated to performance in the urban space. Among the invited artists is the Czech, Prague-based Jiri Kovanda, who presents his work Kissing Through Glass, a performance in which he invites passers by to exchange a kiss through a glass window. In Biel/Bienne, the performance took place at the entrance of the Volkshaus (Maison du Peuple).

    Exhibition text:

    Czech, Prague-based artist, Ji?í Kovanda (b. 1953) active since the 70s, has earned an international reputation for his slight, poetic yet very potent gestures, actions and interventions. For Le Mouvement, he presents Kissing Through Glass, a performance in which he invites passersby to exchange a kiss through a glass window. At once joining and dividing lips through glass, this work inevitably speaks to the boundaries between the public and the private, interior and exterior, and most importantly, between bodies themselves.

    Czech, Prague-based artist Ji?í Kovanda (b. 1953) is perhaps best known for his surreptitious actions in Prague in the second half of the 1970s. Of a secretly performative nature, these actions were conceived as acts of micro-resistance?to the oppressive foreclosure of public space during Soviet occupation.

    Willi Dorner: Bodies in Urban Spaces / Le Mouvement ? Performing the City

    Posted: 1-September-2014, 1:18am EDT by contact@vernissage.tv (VernissageTV)
    Archivo adjunto [Descargar]

    Until November 2014, the 12th edition of the Swiss Sculpture Exhibition is taking place in the city of Biel/Bienne (Switzerland). Entitled Le Mouvement, the contemporary art exhibition is dedicated to performance in the urban space. One of the artists, which have been invited by the curators Gianni Jetzer and Chris Sharp is the Austrian, Vienna-based choreographer, curator and video artist Willi Dorner. Le Mouvement presents his itinerant performance Bodies in Urban Spaces, a work that merges the human body with the urban architecture.

    Will Dorner’s performers lead the audience through parts of downtown Biel/Bienne, where they quickly set up site-specific interventions. Breaking apart into small groups, the dancers make sculptural pit stops, in which they acrobatically insert their bodies into the urban fabric. Wearing brightly colored clothes, they squeeze their bodies in gaps under ramps, use them to fill doorways, or line them up on balconies. In this video, we follow them on one of their tours.

    That’s what the artist says about the work:

    ?bodies in urban spaces? is a temporarily intervention in diversified urban architectonical environment. The intention of ?bodies in urban spaces? is to point out the urban functional structure and to uncover the restricted movement possibilities and behaviour as well as rules and limitations.
    By placing the bodies in selected spots the interventions provoke a thinking process and produce irritation. Passers by, residents and audience are motivated and prompted to reflect their urban surrounding and there own movement behaviour and habits. ?Bodies in urban spaces? invites the residents to walk their own city thus establishing a stronger relationship to their neighbourhood, district and town. The interventions are temporarily without leaving any traces behind, but imprints in the eye-witnesses` memory.

    ?bodies in urban spaces? is a moving trail, choreographed for a group of dancers. The performers lead the audience through selected parts of public and semi-public spaces. A chain of physical interventions set up very quickly and only existing temporarily, allows the viewer to perceive the same space or place in a new and different way – on the run.

    The special quality of each place at various times of the day creates unique presentations.

    With this post we continue our series of videos documenting the 14 Rooms Live Art exhibition in Basel. This time we talk with Associate Curator Samuel Leuenberger.

    14 Rooms was a collaboration between Fondation Beyeler, Art Basel and Theater Basel, and has been accompanied by an education program conceived and run by Fondation Beyeler. The project was originally commissioned as 11 Rooms by Manchester International Festival, the International Arts Festival RUHRTRIENNALE 2012-2014 and Manchester Art Gallery. It was shown as 11 Rooms at Manchester International Festival in July 2011, as 12 Rooms at the International Arts Festival RUHRTRIENNALE 2012-2014 and as 13 Rooms by Kaldor Public Art Projects at Pier 2/3 in Sydney?s Walsh Bay in April 2013. For each edition, the artists list partially changed. Curated by Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, the 14 Rooms exhibition featured performative works by artists including Marina Abramovi?, Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, Ed Atkins, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Damien Hirst, Joan Jonas, Laura Lima, Bruce Nauman, Otobong Nkanga, Roman Ondák, Yoko Ono, Tino Sehgal, Santiago Sierra, and Xu Zhen. Two more works joined the architectural environment conceived by Herzog & de Meuron: Jordan Wolfson?s acting as an epilogue, John Baldessari?s as an archival documentation.

    Up Hill Down Hall: An Indoor Carnival / Tate Modern, Turbine Hall

    On Saturday 23 August, coinciding with the Notting Hill Carnival, Tate Modern presented Up Hill Down Hall: An indoor carnival. Informed by the history of the Notting Hill Carnival, Up Hill Down Hall showcased performances by artists Hew Locke and Marlon Griffith against the backdrop of an architectural design by Gia Wolff and a soundscape by Dubmorphology (Gary Stewart and Trevor Mathison). This video provides you with some impressions of the event.

    From the press text:

    ???Initiated after curator Claire Tancons? longstanding engagement with Carnival across art history, performance theory, postcolonial studies and curatorial practice, Up Hill Down Hall engages with Carnival as ritual of resistance, festival of otherness and performance art, and with the Notting Hill Carnival specifically as a contested site from which to reflect on notions of public space, performance and participation. It conceives of Carnival less as a theme than a medium and indeed introduces practitioners across disciplines who draw from Carnival as a medium of artistic production and a form of social and political address.

    London-based artist Hew Locke creates his first performance work, Give and Take, an exploration of the changing spatial politics of the Notting Hill neighbourhood. Give and Take both critiques the gentrification of the area and embraces the Brazilian influence on this historically pan-Caribbean festival. A piece about the tensions between residents and street revelers it asks ?Who owns the streets of Notting Hill?? Locke?s first carnival-inspired performance is the outcome of decade-long meditations on Carnival in Guyana and London and continued engagement with carnival aesthetics that have long suffused his work. Give and Take is realised in collaboration with the Batala Samba-Reggae band.

    Trinidad-born, Japan-based visual artist Marlon Griffith presents No Black in the Union Jack, a performance inspired by the 2011London summer riots. In this piece, Griffith fuses the nationalistic Caribbean motif of the humming bird with anti-riot police shields in body adornments that blur the boundaries between masquerader and police officer. Also a trained masman?the Trinidadian colloquial for Carnival designer?Marlon Griffith has a longstanding experience in creating carnival performances both for the Trinidad and Notting Hill. Griffith is collaborating with Elimu Paddington Arts Mas Band for which he designed two carnival bands in the past.

    London-based sound artists Dubmorphology remixes live and recorded tracks of steel pan and calypso, reggae and punk with texts relating to the Notting Hill Carnival from Linton Kwesi Johnson to Zadie Smith, and elements from Gary Stewart?s ongoing oral history archive of the Notting Hill Carnival. The live remix, entitled Sonar, is played through a customised sound system on the bridge that crosses the Turbine Hall, alluding to sound system set ups under the Westway Bridge during Notting Hill Carnival.

    Using Oscar Niemeyer?s carnival stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the world-famous Sambadrome, as reference, New York-based architectural designer Gia Wolff transforms Herzog & DeMeuron?s architectural space of the Turbine Hall into a carnival space with Canopy. A deconstructed canopy of ropes hung above and under the Turbine Hall bridge, the monumental installation enhances the Turbine Hall?s unique street-wide scale and entices mass public processional performance.

    While signaling the importance of Carnival as a performance medium with mass appeal in the culminating era of the massification of museum culture, Up Hill Down Hall inscribes these works within the politically conscious cultural legacy of the Notting Hill Carnival, born of Caribbean migration and metropolitan accommodation to the aftermath of colonialism, resistance to racism and the mainstreaming of multiculturalism and, ultimately, developed through cultural ingenuity and artistic creativity at the forefront of the formation of postcolonial British culture.

    Dubmorphology is a London based interdisciplinary artist and research group formed by Gary Stewart and Trevor Mathison. Through experimental approaches to sound art, live cinema and installations Dubmorphology blur the boundaries between the sonic, visual and performative. Its practice is distinguished by it?s ongoing investigation into the unique spaces emerging in museums, art galleries and public spaces formed by the shifting intersections between audiences, authorship and participation. Recent exhibitions, biennials, laboratories and performances include Uprising, Bogota; Multiplicidade, Rio de Janerio; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Art Dubai, Madinat Jumeirah; Taipei Biennial; W.E.B. Dubois Institute, Cambridge; Afterimage, Bristol; and dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel.

    Marlon Griffith began his artistic practice as a Carnival designer?a ?mas? man,? as Trinidadians would call him. This background deeply shapes his work as a contemporary visual artist, which has performative, participatory, and ephemeral characteristics that derive from Carnival. Griffith has shown internationally including South-South: Interruptions & Encounters, Toronto, 2009; Global Caribbean, Miami, 2010; Wrestling with the Image: Caribbean Interventions, Art Museum of the Americas, Washington 2011; 7th Gwanju Biennale, South Korea, 2008; CAPE09, Cape Town, 2009; Manifesta 9 Parallel Projects, 2012 and AichiTrienniale, Japan, 2013. In 2010 Griffith was the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and of a Commonwealth Award.

    Hew Locke is an artist who explores the subject of power, particularly through the representation of royal portraiture, coats-of-arms, public statuary, trophies, weaponry and costume. Drawing on the dynamic society of Guyana, the wider Caribbean and Europe, Locke delves deeply into the history behind the subject matter and objects involved in his work to create pieces that stand on a crossroad of cultures, mediums and historic references. Locke has exhibited both nationally and internationally including the National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain, Victoria & Albert Museum and British Museum in London, New York Museum of Art and Design, Atlanta Contemporary Arts and at Brooklyn Museum, New York as well as the Pérez Art Museum, Miami. This year he will be taking part in Prospect.3, New Orleans and the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India.

    Claire Tancons is a curator, writer and scholar based in New Orleanswhose work focuses on Carnival, public ceremonial culture, civic rituals and popular movements. Often curating for biennials (Prospect. 1 New Orleans, 7th Gwangju Biennale, CAPE09, Biennale Bénin, 7th Göteborg Biennial) Tancons has developed alternative genealogies and methodologies for thinking and presenting performance, including reclaiming the processional as a curatorial medium. She recently initiated a series of collaborations including Far Festa: Nuove Feste Veneziane (IUAV University and Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation, Venice, 2013), En Mas?: Carnival and Performance Art of the Caribbean (Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans and Independent Curators International, New Orleans, 2014-2015) and Psychic Pageant (New Orleans Airlift, New Orleans, 2014). Tancons received many grants from the Andy Warhol Foundation, the Prince Claus Fund and the Foundation for Arts Initiatives among others and, in 2012, an Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award.

    Gia Wolff is an architectural designer who is interested in architecture that embodies a reciprocal relationship between the user and the built environment and questions the performative aspects of the discipline. In 2013, Wolff was winner of the Wheelwright Prize for her project, Floating City: The Community-Based Architecture of Parade Floats, where she currently studies the traditions of parade floats?elaborate temporary and mobile constructions that are realized annually in various carnivals and festivals around the world. She is presently an adjunct professor at the Pratt Institute, School of Architecture, New York and an assistant professor at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union, New York.

    Up Hill Down Hall: An Indoor Carnival is curated by Claire Tancons in discussion with Tate Modern?s curatorial team and in collaboration with the artists in the project with support by students and recent graduates from BA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, UAL: University of the Arts London, along with members from the Notting Hill Carnival Community including participants and volunteers from Elimu Paddington Arts Mas Band and Batala Samba-Reggae percussion band.
