Tokyo, 1982) both graduate from The Royal College of Art. HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU continues their collaborative work exploring the spatial and experiential terms of borders and distance within human interaction into an intriguing narrative.

VIRGILE exhibited in collaboration with KAI YODA at Newark Park and The Wilson in the open west 2013. Selected shows include Saatchi New Sensations, New Order II at Saatchi Gallery, Young Gods at Charlie Smith Gallery and Griffin Gallery, London. Her work has been selected for the Catlin Guide 2014 and 100 London Artists book curated by Charlie Smith Gallery.

Pablo Larios. Network Fatigue

networkfatigue-pablolarios

-

Published in the latest issue of Frieze Magazine (Issue 16, September – November 2014), Network Fatigue is a very interesting essay by PABLO LARIOS about artists who resist to the current image circulation through a series of collaborations and ephemeral projects.

I highly recommend to read the entire text via frieze magazine

ELAINE CAMERON-WEIR’s venus anadyomene is on display in the group exhibition Flat Neighbors at the Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York. Each piece consists of a suspended giant clam shell, edged with neon tubing, and high-fire ceramic vessel each filled with olive oil, sand, mica, and resins of Benzoin, Myrrh as well as Frankincenses that are being heated over a flame releasing their aroma.

I’m not trying to create decorated spaces by any means, but I am interested in that spirit of figuring out how to create a presence, or an atmosphere, using the relationships between objects, rather than a superficial strategy of merely pointing things out to people and asking if they also see those things. And when I work with scent, the idea of what scent it will be evolves alongside the idea of the object. I never make a sculpture and then decide to add a smell. If I’m making a sculpture that was never intended to be scented it never is scented. I’m not trying to illustrate glamour. – ELAINE CAMERON-WEIR in conversation with ISLA LEAVER-YAP

➝  Flat Neighbors is on view at Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York until October 19, 2014

LENA HENKE, DIE, exhibition view at Parisa Kind, Frankfurt

DIE is the title of the new solo exhibition of German artist LENA HENKE which brings together new photographs, sculptures and installations within the gallery space of Parisa Kind in Frankfurt, Germany. There is little information about the show apart a poem by PABLO LARIOS, but it seems that HENKE’s images all occupy three dimensions, pushing photography into full object-hood just as sculpture may erode into the pictorial.

LENA HENKE has held solo exhibitions with Real Fine Arts, New York; Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen; Galerie Parisa Kind, Frankfurt am Main; Kunstverein Oldenburg, Oldenburg; and 1857, Oslo. She has participated in group exhibitions held with Greene Naftali, New York; Pro Choice, Vienna; and the Glasgow International, Glasgow. Together with artist MARIE KARLBERG, she co-founded the itinerant curatorial project M/L Artspace, which has mounted exhibitions in such locations as a nail salon and a parking lot under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. HENKE completed her MFA dually at at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main and the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow. She lives and works between in New York.

DIE  is on view at Galerie Parisa Kind in Frankfurt until October 18, 2014. Please note that HENKE will present her work during the FIAC in Paris (Lafayette Sector) that will take place from October 23 to October 26, 2014.

On the occasion of his new solo exhibition entitled Counting on People at ICA London, French-Algerian artist NEÏL BELOUFA talks in the October issue of Artforum about the works presented in the exhibition which premiers two new films Data for Desire (2014) and VENGEANCE (2014) as well as a special commission by the ICA and The Banff Centre (Canada) entitled Home is Whenever I’m with You (2014).

Like his previous displays, the space at ICA seems to be filled with a sprawling array of objects, structures, cabling punctuated by screens playing BELOUFA‘s films. 

Read the entire text here, and be sure to catch the show in person before it closes on November 16th.
