This is a screen capture from the website newscenario.net, an online platform conceived by German artists PAUL BARSCH and TILMAN HORNIG which aims to present a ‘new conceptual, time based and performative exhibition formats’.

The first online exhibition that has been published earlier this month, is entitled CRASH and features images of artworks by PAUL BARSCH, BURKHARD BESCHOW, ADAM CRUCES, ZACK DAVIS, ANNE FELLNER (see above), TILMAN HORNIG, AOTO OOUCHI, THOMAS PAYNE, CLEMENCE DE LA TOUR DU PIN, CAMILLA STEINUM and RONNY SZILLO, inside a HUMMER stretch limo.

Flashing lights of the metropolis.
Stretched coaches cruise the steaming asphalt. Never sure what they carry.
Hidden behind tinted glass.
Like whales they glide through crowded streets, stolid and majestic.

While I’m sure almost all of you have heard of KATJA NOVITSKOVA, best known for her large animals cut-outs digitally printed on aluminum plates, she recently created a series of moving sculptures assembled from products found in DIY stores, pharmacies or on childcare websites among others.

As in her previous works, KATJA NOVITSKOVA explores notions of spatiality, materiality as well as the capacity for visitors to be affected by images or in this case by everyday items through cute and strange characters. For the first time, the Dutch-Estonian artist has composed moving pieces which at times invite, at times rebuff interaction, with each state a point of departure for other trajectories in the exhibition space.

The video above is part of the documentation of the exhibition that she presented on the occasion of OPEN 2014 in November 2014 at the Rijkakademie where she was artist resident from beginning 2013 to the end of 2014. You can also find more views of the exhibition via katjanovi.net/dayinalife.html

One day left to see LINUS BILL and ADRIEN HORNI‘s solo exhibition at Nathalie Karg Gallery in New York. The Swiss artists have been working together since 2011 on large-scale works that blend collage, painting, reproduction, printing, scanning, photography among other mediums, as well as on various publications just as much hybrid as their large compositions.

The show takes as its starting point a staple-bound zine of recent compositions. Characteristically, these new works update the strategies of Modernist formalism with contemporary tools and references, the results feeling at once familiar and fresh. From these pages, Bill and Horni have transposed a select number of images to canvas: produced in New York City during an ongoing residency, each of these large-scale reproductions is singular in its visual strategy while sharing a spontaneous feel that offsets the artists’ innate sense of arrangement, palette, and medium‘. – CHRISTOPHER SCHRECK, December 2014

I really recommend to read the press release written by CHRISTOPHER SCHRECK who explains clearly the whole creative process behind these works and the exhibition: http://nathaliekarg.com/exhibitions/linus-bill-adrien-horni/

→ LINUS BILL and ADRIEN HORNI at Nathalie Karg Gallery New York is on view till January 24, 2015

I mentioned the work of VIRGILE ITTAH and KAI YODA before, but I am pleased to mention it again since they opened their new solo exhibition entitled Walking on the beach imitating sand in London this week, in the contemporary art venue of Hus Gallery in London.

The work above is currently part of the exhibition, which is actually their second full-scale collaboration together. Questioning the notions of identity, isolation and nostalgia, Walking on the beach imitating sand is an attempt to create a new homeland that – according to the press release - can be packaged and transported because it is a mood and an atmosphere rather than a physical local.

Be sure to catch the show in person before it closes on February 21, 2015 at Hus Gallery, London

I’m especially frustrated when I missed an interesting exhibition that was on view close to me. And this is the case for the solo exhibition of Italian-Swiss artist MIA MARFURT entitled Soft and Hard Factors that has been displayed from November to December at Wallriss in Fribourg in Switzerland.

For those of you who couldn’t make it either because you were too far away or you didn’t get a slot, you can see some of MIA MARFURT solo exhibition pictures via http://wallriss.ch/.
