Luan Gallery, Athlone, Ireland - Inaugural exhibition of the new visual art gallery


Inaugural exhibition: Borrowed Memories 
Luan Gallery, Athlone, Co Westmeath, Ireland
Through 24 February 2013

Borrowed Memories: Exhibition from the Collection of the Irish Museum of Modern Art is the inaugural exhibition of the new Luan Gallery, Athlone, County Westmeath, in Ireland, officially opened on Thursday 29 November 2012. 

The name ‘Luan’ derives from the Irish for Athlone, 'Baile Áth Luain' and was proposed as part of a public competition organised to name the new gallery. Designed by Keith Williams Architects, the Luan Gallery is first new visual art gallery to be opened in Ireland in over three years. In its previous incarnations the building which now houses the Luan Gallery has been many things to many people and to the town of Athlone – a library, concert hall, cinema and town hall to name but a few. Commenting on the exhibition Miriam Mulrennan, Manager, the Luan Gallery said: “Rich and colourful memories are associated with the building. Respect for people’s connection to the building formed a centre point in curating Borrowed Memories.”

The location of the Luan Gallery, in the centre of Ireland, on the banks of the River Shannon is reflected in the work of American artist Ann Hamilton. Filament II, 1996 comprises a silk organza curtain, which has been distressed by the artist, hanging from a circular rail. It is a sculpture with blurred boundaries and changeable volume and form, at once a public and private space. The curtain envelopes you but is transparent, so a shadowy figure is still visible to others standing outside. The presence or absence of people changes perceptions and experience of the work and in this regard it is interactive and participatory.  

Where Do Broken Hearts Go, 2000, by Longford-born Bristol-based artist Daphne Wright became the lynch pin for the idea of memories and the combination of shadow and light that are our own memories and those of others. Layering plays an important part in Wright’s work and here we see, not only the physical layering of the foil strips to create the giant foil cacti, but also the layering of the different elements which come together to make the entire installation – the folded strips of household tinfoil, the Country and Western lyrics and the intaglio prints made from found photographs by an anonymous photographer.

Westmeath-native Patrick Graham’s Ark of Dreaming, 1990, explores both colour and gesture. Words combined with vestiges of figurative imagery, and layers of heavily worked and reworked paint are applied to the canvas which has been ruthlessly split open and crudely stitched together in a diptych suggestive of an alterpiece. 

The work of Irish artist Shane Cullen created from the smuggled messages of the 1981 Maze hunger strikers presents itself to the audience as a forceful narrative of a dark time in our history which demands reflection. Fragmens Sur Les Institutions Républicaines IV, 1993 - 1997 was made over a period of four years and consists of 96 large styrofoam panels, each carrying transcriptions of the secret messages smuggled out of the H-Blocks in the Maze Prison. The subject matter is controversial but presented in a highly disciplined manner that references historical monuments. Each painted word mimics official government documents. 

Works such as Blue Crucifixion, 2003, by Manchester-born, Irish-based artist Hughie O’Donoghue and Dublin-based photographer Amelia Stein’s Memory and Loss, 2002, series of photographs are also shown. Other works shown in the exhibition include Dublin-based artist Amanda Coogan’s photograph Medea, 2001, and Northern Irish photographer Hannah Starkey’s Untitled, August, 1999.

Eithne Jordan at Rubicon Gallery and at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, Ireland


Eithne Jordan, En Route, Works on Paper
Rubicon Gallery, Dublin, Ireland
Through 8 December 2012

Eithne Jordan, Street
Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, Ireland
Through 21 December 2012

Just over twenty new gouache on paper paintings by irish artist Eithne Jordan is on view at Rubicon Gallery in Dublin in an exhibition entitled En Route ('On the road' in french). The paintings are uniformly encased in carefully constructed lucite/acrylic boxes, like small TV screens on pause or a glimpsed view through a car window. Individual paintings have subtle gradations of tone and hue, in this they are evocative of Giorgio Morandi’s reduced and deliberate still-life works, yet we have to assume that Jordan had much less control over her curiously quiet city compositions. The flatness of form and distance inferred in her work are suggestive of Alex Katz’ contradictory bold planes of colour and distinctive painted forms. Eithne Jordan’s compositional balance and measured brush strokes produces considered, familiar but unspecific, urban environments.

Eithne Jordan starts outdoors in her direct environs, taking countless photographs often while commuting to or from the studio and always advancing slowly on foot or bicycle. She deliberately takes incidental, unrefined, arbitrary photos - their imperfections are a valuable attribute in her work – a device she uses as a method to create a distance between what is real and how it can be manipulated and edited. The few photographs she selects as source material for paintings offer a roughness and a fragment of reality that Eithne Jordan enhances in her gouaches, as she adapts elements of the configured scenes to suit her own purposes. The detailed gouache paintings are intimate in scale and draw the viewer in, introducing a human perspective, as her works feature no figures, and are largely devoid of human presence with the occasional exception of passing traffic.    

In her major Royal Hibernian Academy -RHA- exhibition, Street [November 15 - December 21, 2012], the artist Eithne Jordan shows large-scale paintings on linen and canvas. These paintings are developed, without exception, from gouache predecessors, creating a further buffer in her re-drawn representations of reality. In replicating scenes she has produced on a small-scale, Jordan takes on new technical and compositional challenges, many details are frequently and deliberately omitted in the transition from small to larger-scale works and areas which are flat planes on a small scale become vast abstract blocks of colour. En Route, at Rubicon Gallery, features those very specific gouache images that Eithne Jordan chose to paint in oil for her Royal Hibernian Academy exhibition and, since these two exhibitions run concurrently for a time, viewers have an opportunity to see part of this artist’s working process.

Tom Climent at BlueLeaf Gallery, Dublin, Ireland


Tom Climent, Final State
BlueLeaf Gallery, Dublin, Ireland
Through 13 december 2012


Irish artist Tom Climent’s most recent work is on view at Dublin's BlueLeaf Gallery. Most recent Tom Climent's paintings tends to focus on the creation of space, investigating the boundaries between abstraction and representation as a means of conveying this, exploring the dematerialised qualities that one does not actually see in reality and using spatial structures as a vehicle to make this quality solid and physical.

The perception of space is a complex phenomenon; we have not simply a mental apprehension of space but an experience of living space. The creation of space through perspective indicates a fixed point of view; a lived space contains a remembrance of past space and a longing for future spaces. The postion of the viewer is always shifting.

Tom Climent’s practice of art to date has been as a painter and one of his interests has been in how art addresses the body in space. For him a painting could become a window connecting an inside with an outside. In his work the devices of perspective and more abstract methods of reduction can create a pictorial surface which allows our bodily world in.

Tom Climent's initial enquiry was focused around spatial constructs and how they might provide a structured space for our existence. Taking a basic structure as an analogy for our place in the world, he started to create very rudimentary spatial structures; a fundamental shape or vessel that could contain a human presence. People organise space so that it meets their needs and supports their social interations. The space buildings create have an important part in how we live our lives. A body is a lived body and as such the spaces it inhabits are lived spaces.

From this original idea Tom Climent's paintings have become more intricate and complex in structure. As traces of memories and feelings accumulate and overlap on the canvas, construction and deconstruction become active tools in the creation of his paintings. His work reminds us of how our spatial ability becomes spatial knowledge as we navigate our world and with this knowledge we create a place for ourselves. Our expression of this place inheres in the kinds of structures we create for inhabitation. A building is a container - for ourselves.  Is this space then, our most basic root in the world; a footprint of our mode of being here? 

Previous solo shows of TOM CLIMENT works include Between Chance and Rhyme at The Hunt Museum, New Paintings at The Fenton Gallery, Pure at The Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, Dust at Garter Lane Arts Centre, Hansels House at Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, A Light Enters The Land at BlueLeaf Gallery, Dancing Parade at Triskel Arts Centre, Ashlar at The Alley Theatre Arts Centre, Harvester House at The South Tipperary Arts Centre and more recently his MA by Research exhibition at The Wandeford Quay Gallery.

TOM CLIMENT is a recipient of the Tony O’Malley award and Victor Treacey award. The artist work is in the collections of  The Central Bank, The National Treasury Management Agency, University College Cork, AIB Bank, The National Self-Portrait Collection, NCB Stockbrokers, The Cork Opera House, Cork City Council , The Office of Public Works, Cork Institute of Technology & Private Collections in Ireland, UK,USA, Spain & Canada.

Montrasio Arte à l'Hôtel de Sauroy, Paris
Jusqu'au 1er décembre 2012

Exposition de la série Atlas de Luigi Ghirri et du travail de 6 photographes émergents : Marco Barbon, Ottavia Castellina, Margherita Cesaretti, Alessandro Imbriaco, Claudia Pozzoli, Susanna Pozzoli.


Exposition organisée à Paris dans le cadre du Mois de la Photo par la galerie italienne Montrasio Arte, sous le commissariat de Laura Serani du 2 novembre au 1er décembre à l’Hôtel de Sauroy à Paris 3e. Autour du thème Le Réel enchanté, Thanks to Luigi Ghirri propose un regard panoramique sur l’héritage laissé à une nouvelle génération, engagée dans une redéfinition et une nouvelle élaboration du champ de la photographie.

« Tous les voyages possibles ont été décrits et tous les itinéraires tracés, désormais le seul voyage possible semble être celui dans la sphère des signes et des images, ceci est la destruction de l’expérience directe…» Luigi Ghirri
Atlas (1973-1974) travail emblématique de Luigi Ghirri présenté ici, est l’illustration parfaite de cette abstraction qui l’amenait à s’interroger constamment sur la façon de restituer le réel et le paysage, à commencer par celui du Bel Paese. Acteur majeur de la photographie italienne et véritable référence pour des générations d’artistes, Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) a joué un rôle clé, pour sa réflexion théorique autant que pour ses travaux très précurseurs et pour l’utilisation novatrice de la couleur.




Thanks to Luigi Ghirri propose un regard panoramique sur l’héritage laissé à une nouvelle génération, engagée dans une redéfinition et une nouvelle élaboration du champ de la photographie. L’exposition réunit six photographes aux démarches différentes. Leur point commun autour du « maître » est la grande liberté qui a caractérisé son œuvre. De la nouvelle évocation du passé à celle de la magie de la nature, la liberté des photographes contemporains mélange les genres et introduit des nouveaux codes expressifs dans des démarches documentaires où le ton narratif, parfois autobiographique, joue un rôle important. Ainsi, même quand il s’agit « d’histoires vraies », comme pour Asmara Dream de Marco Barbon (www.marcobarbon.com) ou On the Block, Harlem Private View de Susanna Pozzoli (www.susannapozzoli.com) (travail réalisé grâce au programme de résidences pour artistes Harlem Studio Fellowship by Montrasio Arte) une poésie habite les images et les suspend au dessus de leur réalité dans une autre dimension, entre fiction et mémoire. On peut alors s’apercevoir qu’une démarche journalistique et une recherche conceptuelle libèrent une très forte charge émotionnelle. Ce nouveau regard porté sur le réel et l’invention d’un monde est encore plus évident avec Ottavia Castellina (www.ottaviacastellina.com) qui invente le passé de lieux empruntés aux souvenirs d’une étrangère ; avec l’herbier magique de Margherita Cesaretti (www.margheritacesaretti.com) et ses étranges plantes résultats d’hybridations techniques; dans Static Drama de Alessandro Imbriaco (www.alessandroimbriaco.com) (travail également développé pendant le Harlem Studio Fellowship by Montrasio Arte), où les extérieurs des maisons, photographiés à la tombée de la nuit, deviennent les décors/archétypes de possibles drames domestiques ou encore les montagnes enchantées de Claudia Pozzoli (www.claudiapozzoli.com), solitaires et imposantes comme des métaphores.

Texte de la Commissaire d'exposition Laura Serani

Cette exposition a été pensée et réalisée par Montrasio Arte, galerie privée italienne née en 1939, basée à Milan et Monza qui au fil du temps, a soutenu avec des projets très approfondis (dont le programme de résidences pour artistes Harlem Studio Fellowship by Montrasio Arte à New York) le travail de jeunes artistes et photographes prometteurs. Après sa présentation à l’Hôtel de Sauroy lors du Mois de la Photo, l’exposition itinérante sera montrée dans différents lieux artistiques en Italie.

Un catalogue édité par Ruggero Montrasio et Laura Serani a été publié à l’occasion de l’exposition par Montrasio Arte. Il été enrichi de textes écrits par Daniele Astrologo Abadal et Laura Serani.

Andy Warhol at Christie's realizes $17 to benefit The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts


Andy Warhol at Christie's New York First sale in the multi-year and multi-platform series to benefit The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, November 12, 2012

Christie’s announces the results of Andy Warhol at Christie’s, the three single-artist sales of Photographs, Prints, and Paintings and Works on Paper held at Christie’s New York on November 12, 2012, to benefit The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Proceeds from this first auction in a multi-year, multi-platform partnership between the Foundation and Christie’s realized a total of $17,017,050 for the Foundation’s endowment, enabling the institution to ensure and expand its long-term support of the visual arts.  The sale achieved sell-through rates of 91% by lot and 82% by value.

Amy Cappellazzo, Chairman, Post-War & Contemporary Development at Christie’s, stated:  “Today’s vigorous launch of the Warhol Foundation sales was met with enthusiasm by established and new collectors globally, including successful bidders from mainland China, Russia, the European Union, the Middle East and the Americas.  Warhol’s enduring appeal was underscored by a 91% sell-through rate by lot, with Photographs and Prints performing exceedingly well.  Today’s sales have set the stage beautifully for the next offering of works from the Collection of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which includes a selling exhibition in Hong Kong and the debut of online-only sales in February.  The sales today were in our traditional auction channel and proved that our global collector network is the strongest in the art world and we are honored to leverage our standing on behalf of the Warhol Foundation in support of its noble mission.”

The November 12 auction was the first of a number of phased sales by Christie’s of works from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts’ collection. Future sales in the series will include online auctions beginning in February 2013 and private sales conducted on an ongoing basis.

Expo Annette Messager, Strasbourg + Livre


Annette Messager, Continents noirs
Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg
Jusqu'au 3 février 2013

Le Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg présente actuellement la première exposition consacrée à l’artiste Annette Messager dans un musée français depuis la grande rétrospective qui s’est tenue en 2007 au Centre Pompidou. L’exposition Continents noirs réunit des oeuvres réalisées entre 2010 et 2012, dont la plupart font l’objet d’une première présentation publique.   
  
Artiste majeure de la scène contemporaine internationale, Annette Messager, née en 1943, a reçu en 2005 le Lion d’Or de la Biennale de Venise, où elle représentait la France. 

Annette Messager crée, depuis le début des années 1970, une oeuvre singulière dans laquelle se mêlent, sur le mode de la collection, du bricolage et du jeu, des éléments de différentes natures, tels photographies, dessins, broderies, objets manufacturés, animaux naturalisés. Son univers, empreint d’humour, qui témoigne d’une fascination pour l’art brut, célèbre la femme dans son quotidien le plus banal, tout en traquant le monde à travers ses vestiges, à la manière d’un ethnologue.  

A partir de 2001, Annette Messager crée de grandes et sombres installations animées par d’inquiétantes mécaniques, qui mettent en scène des corps fragmentés ou disloqués, métaphores de déchirements existentiels ; elles empruntent à l’univers du théâtre, du cinéma expressionniste ainsi que du conte populaire, comme Casino, l’installation en 3 temps réalisée à l’occasion de la Biennale de Venise, 
dont le pantin Pinocchio était le fil rouge. 

Dans ses oeuvres les plus récentes, Annette Messager présente un monde à la  noirceur cataclysmique ; un monde  pétrifié, carbonisé, un univers urbain d’après la catastrophe, dont les résidus miniaturisés flottent, agglutinés en des sortes d’îlots volants, ou semblent étouffer ce qu’il reste de vie sur la planète terre. Lointainement inspirée de l’univers de Swift dans ses Voyages de Gulliver,  elle explore ici un registre relevant du fantastique ou de la science fiction, pour mettre en scène les pathologies du monde contemporain, en une manière de conte philosophique ou de fable politique. L’esprit de jeu et de dérision qui lui sont familiers allègent la gravité de son propos, tenant à distance l’effroi par l’évocation du monde de l’enfance. 

Le parcours de l’exposition, élaboré dans un dialogue étroit avec l’artiste, inclut une vingtaine d’oeuvres, monumentales pour trois d’entre elles, ou de format plus modeste, comme écritures en filet de pêche, objets sculpturaux et dessins.  

Commissaire de l'exposition : Joëlle Pijaudier-Cabot, Conservatrice du patrimoine, Directrice des Musées de la Ville de Strasbourg 

Publication : Les Editions Xavier Barral - EXB - ont publié Annette Messager, Continents noirs, 96 pages, 32 x 21 cm

ANNETTE MESSAGER, Continents noirs
Les Editions Xavier Barral, 2012

L’ouvrage déploie une succession de vues des oeuvres récentes d’Annette Messager, le lecteur circulant à travers elles comme le spectateur à travers les installations. L’artiste a demandé à l’écrivain américain Norman Spinrad d’écrire un texte évoquant son récent travail. Auteur de science fiction, Spinrad dépeint dans ses romans et nouvelles des univers fantastiques au bord de la dérive. Fragiles chevelures bougeant au gré de souffleries, chaussures abandonnées et petits objets du quotidien recouverts d’une sombre feuille d’aluminium froissé, dispersés sur le sol sous une bâche, éléments suspendus et mobiles se déployant telle une masse noire et menaçante, à la fois aérienne et terriblement pesante, ces installations et oeuvres oscillent entre le monumental et le miniature. Elles suscitent le sentiment de l’instable et du fugitif, et se font l’écho des tensions du monde d’aujourd’hui. Menaces écologiques et troubles des temps modernes transparaissent dans ses installations devenues autant de continents noirs. Traces ou vestiges d’un monde imaginaire plutôt inquiétant, les dernières créations d’Annette Messager nous plongent dans le mystère de leurs origines.

Bela Kolarova Retrospective, Raven Row, London, 2013


Běla Kolářová
Raven Row, London
31 January - 7 April 2013

Raven Row, London, presents the first posthumous retrospective of the work of Czech artist Běla Kolářová (1923-2010). The show is both the first solo exhibition of the artist in the UK and the first major survey of her work outside the Czech Republic.

From her trademark ‘artificial negatives’, ‘pure light drawings’ and ‘derealised portraits’ to her assemblages and collages, Běla Kolářová pioneered an art based on intimate objects often associated with domesticity and the feminine. The works on display will span Kolářová’s career to include documentary photographs from the late fifties, camera-less experiments, ‘arranged’ photographs of objects and hair and assemblages from the sixties, as well as make-up drawings and assemblages from the seventies and eighties.

While rooted in the context of the Cold War and exile, Běla Kolářová’s practice is also closely linked to the life of her husband, the influential artist and poet Jiří Kolář, whose work overshadowed her own until its recent rediscovery. Despite the difficulties of exhibiting in her own country, she was able to develop a unique body of work, both formally and conceptually. As this exhibition will demonstrate, its legacy to the history of art – on both sides of the Iron Curtain – is anything but modest, unlike its materials and its author’s personality.

An accompanying catalogue published by Raven Row will include new essays by Prague-based writer and curator Karel Císař and Matthew S Witkovsky, Chair and Curator of the Department of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as an edited conversation between Alice Motard and Czech art historian Marie Klimešová, who organised the most complete exhibition of the artist’s work to date at Olomouc Museum of Art in the Czech Republic in 2006.

The exhibition is curated by Marie Klimešová and Alice Motard.

BELA KOLAROVA (born 1923, Terezín, former Czechoslovakia, died 2010, Prague). In 1980, during the era of ‘Normalisation’, Běla Kolářová and her husband Jiří Kolář left Czechoslovakia and lived in Paris before moving back to Prague in 1999. Kolářová’s work can be found in a number of private and public collections, among which the National Gallery and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, the Moravian Gallery in Brno, the Olomouc Museum of Art, and the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris. Since it was shown at documenta 12 in Kassel in 2007, her work has been included in group exhibitions in Vienna, Paris, London, Schwaz (Austria) and Cologne.

BnF : La Photographie en 100 chefs d'oeuvres - Expo 2012-2013


La photographie en cent chefs-d’œuvre
BnF - François-Mitterrand, Paris
13 novembre 2012 - 17 février 2013

L'affiche de l'exposition à la BnF avec une photo signée Man Ray


« Choisir parmi les trésors photographiques que conserve la Bibliothèque est un exercice difficile auquel notre collection se prête avec bonheur. Photographies d’art, documentaires, scientifiques, images issues de fonds d’écrivains ou de savants, de fonds de journaux ou de théâtre, images de cinéma... aucune autre institution française ne rassemble une telle variété, des origines de la photographie à nos jours.» -- Bruno Racine, président de la BnF.

De la plus ancienne pièce présentée, un essai de William Henry Fox Talbot de 1839, à la plus récente de la sélection, une image prise à Fos-sur-Mer en 1986 par Lewis Baltz, les cent photographies exposées questionnent le concept de chef-d’œuvre. Quelle photographie peut prétendre accéder à ce statut ? Une grande image d’un grand auteur ?  Sans nul doute, mais tout autant une photographie scientifique qui atteint la perfection dans son domaine ou un tirage anonyme ancien qui anticipe de façon étonnante sur l’art des 20e et 21e siècles. 

Parmi les photographies les plus anciennes, le daguerréotype réalisé par Joseph Philibert Girault de Prangey en 1842.

Portraits, paysages, nus, reportages, publicité, photographie scientifique, tous les genres sont représentés à travers le regard de grands noms de la photographie :  Eugène Atget, Félix Nadar, Frantisek Drtikol, Diane Arbus, Raoul Hausmann, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Man Ray, Franco Fontana, William Eggleston, Claude Levi-Strauss, Brassaï, Julia Margaret Cameron, André Kertesz, Bill Brandt, Gustave Le Gray, Gilles Caron...

Des photographies anonymes ou d’autres, plus étonnantes encore, réalisées par des écrivains tels Emile Zola, Victor Segalen ou Jacques Prévert font également partie des trésors sélectionnés pour l’occasion. A noter,également, un autoportrait réalisé par Edgar Degas en 1895 (photo reproduite ci-dessous avec l'autorisation de la BnF).

La beauté formelle et la qualité du tirage - toujours exceptionnelle - font l’intérêt des photographies exposées, de même que leur mode d’entrée dans les collections de la Bibliothèque, qui participe de l’histoire de chaque image :  don de l’auteur ou de sa famille, dation, acquisition parfois très précoce telle la photographie mythique de Mai 68 de Gilles Caron acquise en grand tirage dès septembre de la même année. Ces modes d’entrée sont en filigrane une histoire de la constitution de la collection de la BnF.

Loin d’écrire une histoire de la photographie, le parcours de l’exposition se déroule d’image en image au fil de rapprochements et de correspondances esthétiques et formelles. Ni chronologique ni thématique, la déambulation s’ouvre ainsi sur l’essai de Talbot de 1839 pour se clore au gré d’associations visuelles sur un autoportrait d’Emile Zola.

196 pages / 100 illustrations 
Prix : 39 euros



Le catalogue édité par la BnF reflète la logique de l’exposition : classique dans son principe, qui consiste à montrer de très belles photographies, et décalée dans sa réalisation qui s’éloigne des traditionnels axes monographiques ou thématiques. Cet ouvrage regroupe toutes les photographies exposées, assorties de commentaires réalisés par des personnalités aussi variées que les photographes, parmi lesquelles des artistes, des acteurs du monde de la culture ou des écrivains, dont par exemple Anish Kapoor, Annette Messager, Roberto Alagna, David Lynch, Anne Pingeot ou encore Patrick Modiano, Michel Pastoureau, Charles Baudelaire... Le catalogue propose également un texte des commissaires ainsi que des notices descriptives scientifiques complètes accompagnées d’un éclairage sur l’histoire de chaque image.
