OR OR OR? is a site specific project by RAPHAEL HEFTI for the Centre d’Art Contemporain of Geneva. In the same vein as his previous works, material, form and craft are at the core in HEFTI’s project for the Centre d’Art which consists of a series of sculptural tubes in metal, more precisely three hundred one-meter-long poles of steel, aluminium, titanium and copper. For this installation, the Swiss artist transmuted these materials by heating them electrically to various extremely high temperatures, altering the coloration and sometimes also the shape of the matter.

The results of these experimentations – that he also performed during the opening – are shown in a monumental display, which blends abstraction and physicality, and which is optically and aesthetically pleasing while making art-historical references from the modernist grid to performance art.

RAPHAEL HEFTI was born in 1978 in Biel (CH) and lives and works between Zurich and London. He attended the Ecole Cantonale d‘art de Lausanne (ECAL) and the Slade School of Fine Art, London. He is the recipient of the 2015 ‘La Mobilière Prize’.

OR OR OR? is on view at Centre d’Art Contemporain of Geneva till April 24, 2015

Actually it’s not one pic that I want to share but two pics coming from KASPER SONNE‘s instagram and showing works from his new solo exhibition entitled Black Box presented at Galerie Jeanroch Dard in Brussels that opened a few days ago.

The Black Box exhibition consists of six grow tents in which the Danish artist presents paintings from the series TXC and a new one called BAD for which he used ashes in complement to industrial paint, as well as two videos The List (2010) and Bad Chemistry (2014). The funny fact is that – according to the press release provided by the gallery – the works are ‘difficult to photograph in this scenario and therefore impossible to share on social networks in their entirety,’ and so ‘the paintings defy the excessive circulation of the image and redefine certain visual reflexes‘. Well, it seems to work perfectly for social networks!

Definitely an exhibition to see in person if you are in Brussels:

Black Box by KASPER SONNE is on view at Galerie Jeanroch Dard in Brussels until April 11, 2015

Andrea Crespo. Parabiosis: neurolibidinal induction complex

digital video, 6:29 min

it’s recommended to listen with headphones or speaker systems capable of reproducing low tonal ranges for maximum efficacy

-

At Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler gallery in Berlin, American artist ANDREA CRESPO is currently presenting a series of prints as well as this fascinating video called Parabiosis (watch above) in which the artist refers to mental pathology, individuality and personality issues through CELINDE and CYNTHIA, a somehow schizophrenic transgender hand-drawn manga character.

Mixing technology, data, digital as well as analog artistic forms with anime aesthetics, this multi-disciplinary fiction chronicles the plural entity of this fictional protagonist; their distinct personalities, interests, moods, emotions, but also the mirrored thoughts and sensations shared in a common system called Sis.

Sis,” the system which aggregates ANDREAs multiplicity, participates within long-tail neurodivergent community online, contributing to networked mobilizations of identity which collectively motivate imaginative futurities that redefine the human and its supposed subjective unity. – JACK KAHN via DIS magazine

Highlighting the awkward relationship between digital industry and the complexities of reality and imagination, CRESPO’s fictional character provides a conceptual framework for the artist to explore identity and gender issues that have arisen out of technology.

If you are in Berlin, make sure to see sis : somatic systems by ANDREA CRESPO at Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler before it closes on April 11, 2015.
