The Miami, Moscow and Bermondsey Film Selections

Artist Sound of Film

curated by David Gryn, Artprojx, Daata Editions

Friday 16 May, 2015

Moscow Museum Nights

The films are selections of works that were originally selected and curated by David Gryn for the Film programme at Art Basel in Miami Beach over the last 5 years. The films were all played on the New World Symphony Center’s screening wall in Soundscape Park during the annual art fair. This selection was played outdoors in Moscow as part of the Museum Nights in May 2014 along with DJ Max Reinhardt and then played at the closing of the Bermondsey Project in London. 

These works all engage with music, rhythm and sound and remain resonant from their initial playing. They all have a power that is far beyond just the work, one that creates lingering memory with the viewer long after the work has been seen and finished. The selection of these was driven by their sound, engagement and that the language needed to digest these works is that of audio-visual. These works reflect on the current trends and modes of communication such as YouTube, TV, animation, gaming, social media and used to create new images, sounds and unexpected connections. Selected as these works communicate across cultures and language, as they are all predominantly music based soundtracks.

The films selected are highlights of works that were originally selected and curated by David Gryn for the Film programme at Art Basel in Miami Beach over the last 4 years. The films were all played on the New World Symphony Center’s screening wall in Soundscape Park during the annual art fair.

This is a pre-inaugural show for the new state museum space SOLYANKA VPA (Video. Performance. Animation) planning to open this coming autumn

Slater Bradley - Intermission

Love Your Celebrity as You Love Yourself
Unless he is painter Nikas Safronov or sculptor Marc Quinn, the real artist is obliged to hate celebrities.
The show InArt. InStars. InStyle explores the electricity between artists and celebrities – for example, between Sam Taylor-Wood and her fellow celebrities the Klitschko brothers. Or between fashion-world wizard Hussein Chalayan and Tilda Swinton, who in the video The Absent Presence literally performs magic by steaming DNA sequences from the clothing of ordinary, non-British Londoners (contemporary art without politics is not contemporary art). Or between the stunning Meryl Streep and Laurie Simmons, who is not only an artist, but wrote all the lyrics to the songs in the gorgeous musical The Music of Regret. Or between one of Britain’s most uncompromising contemporary artists,Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller, and the shadow of Depeche Mode, whom Jeremy and his collaborator Nicholas Abrahams followed round the world for their documentary The Posters Came from the Walls without once showing them onscreen.

Oriana Fox - Workout

Shadows and doppelgängers are the focus of this show. Swinton performing her witchery, Michael Jackson melting in the snow (Slater Bradley’s Intermission), Keira Knightley lost amidst a neatly trimmed green labyrinth: the artists want the stars to drown, to stew in the juices of their own myths. What matters to the artists is not only taking a swipe at the celebs, but also mentally (or even literally, as in the cases of Oriana Fox, Jessica Voorsanger, Sarah Baker, and, in a slightly different vein, Stuart Pearson Wright) substituting themselves for the stars and then viewing the results from the sidelines. Video is the most fitting genre for this sort of viewing – a funhouse mirror, as it were. But that’s okay: we get the picture.
In the same way, slowly but surely, Solyanka State Gallery is transforming itself from a universal gallery space into a museum project wholly devoted to screen culture. This autumn we will explain to you what Solyanka VPA (Video. Performance. Animation) is all about, but for now just gaze into the eyes of the artists and their stars and don’t worry about mixing them up. However much this might anger the artists, this show essentially places a big, fat equals sign between artists and celebrities.

ВОЗЛЮБИ СЕЛЕБРИТИ КАК САМОЕ СЕБЯ
Настоящий художник обязан ненавидеть знаменитостей, если только он не живописец Никас Сафронов и не скульптор Марк Куинн.

Выставка InArt. InStars. InStyle показывает связь и электричество между словом artist и словом celebrity – вот, к примеру, между Сэм Тейлор-Вуд и ее братьями по селебрити-цеху Кличко. Между удивительным колдуном фэшн-сцены Хуссейном Чалаяном и его тоже в своем роде сестрой Тильдой Суинтон (в видео «Отсутствие присутствия»/The Absent Presenсe она и правда колдует, выпаривая ген ДНК из одежды обычных лондонцев необычных национальностей – совр. искусство без политики – никакое не совр. искусство). Между умопомрачительной Мэрил Стрип и не только художницей, но и автором всех текстов песен этого прекрасного мюзикла («Музыка отчаяния», Music Of Regret) Лори Симмонс. Между, очевидно, одним из самых непримиримых современных художников Британии, лауреатом Тернеровской премии Джереми Деллером – и тенью группы Depeche Mode, которую Джереми вместе со своим соавтором, Николасом Абрамсом, преследовал по всему миру – но так ни разу и не помещает в кадр.

3 minute round by Sam Taylor Wood

Тени и доппельгангеры (призрачные двойники) – вообще, наверное, главная тема этой выставки. Колдующая Суинтон, тающий в снегах Майкл Джексон («Большая перемена»/Intermission Слейтера Брэдли), теряющаяся в аккуратно постриженном зеленом лабиринте Кира Найтли – художники хотят, чтобы звезды утонули, растворились в вареве собственного мифа. Им важно не только поглумиться над селебом – но и, на всякий случай, мысленно (или вполне буквально, как Ориана Фокс, Джессика Фозенгер, Сара Бейкер или – в несколько ином ключе, но все же – Стюарт Пирсон-Райт) подставить на место звезды самое себя. И посмотреть на это со стороны, благо видео – самый удачный для такого смотрения жанр: такое себе кривое зеркало – но ничего, суть различима.

Так, медленно, но верно, Государственная галерея на Солянке из выставочной площадки универсального применения обращается в музейный проект, полностью посвященный экранной культуре. Этой осенью мы объясним вам, что такое СОЛЯНКА ВПА (Видео. Перформанс. Анимация), – а пока что смотрите в глаза художникам и их звездам и, не беспокоясь, путайте их между собой – в сущности, как бы художники ни сердились, этот выставочный проект ставит жирный знак равенства между двумя словами – artist и celebrity.
