The Great and Debonair Nick Abrahams

НИК АБРАХАМС И SIGUR ROS О ЛЕСЕ, ЛИСЕ, ЖИЗНИ И СМЕРТИ

1 – 15 ОКТЯБРЯ 2013

C 1 по 15 октября в кинозале Центра ЗАРЯ в рамках проекта An Artist Focus Series в сотрудничестве с компанией Artprojx пройдет российская премьера видео Ekki Mukk – фильма-победителя London Short Film Festival-2013. Видео о жизни и смерти, утрате ориентиров и обретении  современным человеком истины в контакте с живой природой лондонский художник и режиссер Ник Абрахамс снял в духе сказки, ставшей частью экспериментального проекта Valtari Mystery, инициированного исландской пост-рок-группой Sigur Ros. Музыканты предложили 12 художникам и режиссерам сделать собственные видеоинтерпретации композиций с альбома Valtari на условиях полной творческой свободы и очень скромного бюджета (одинаково маленького для всех):  «Мы никому не хотим говорить, в каком направлении работать, как чувствовать… по аналогии с нашей музыкой – ее характер исключает возможность программирования определенной эмоциональной реакции слушателя». Так Ник Абрахамс, несмотря на минималистичный стиль звучания группы, решил ввести в видео нарратив – историю трех персонажей: потерянного человека, мудрой улитки и раненого лиса. Их коммуникативный треугольник обнаруживает всю ограниченность человеческого мировосприятия и превращает 10-минутный клип в манифест против близорукости и эгоцентризма. Вербальный элемент намеренно сведен к минимуму на фоне сильного визуального ряда, основанного на последних достижениях документальной съемки дикой природы оператора BBC Мартина Дорна и подчеркнутом внимании к деталям. На фоне простого сельского пейзажа Англии история Абрахамса с завидной убедительностью, доступной только мастерам, рассказывает о вечных ценностях. Худшее из возможных по критериям поп-индустрии видео идеально гармонирует с «неземной» музыкой Sigur Ros, а в качестве действующих лиц соединяет известного актера Эйдена Гиллена («Прослушка»/ «Игра престолов») и фолк-певицу Ширли Коллинз, чей легендарный голос художник вложил в «уста» всезнающей улитки.

«Sigur Ros разрешили художникам делать все, что они хотят, – я захотел сделать это!» / Ник Абрахамс

Ник Абрахамс, художник и режиссер, живет и работает в Лондоне. Выпустил широкий спектр видеоработ – от музыкальных клипов Leftfield, Stereolab, Cornershop и Manic Street Preachers до видеоарта в сотрудничестве с лауреатом Премии Тернера художником Джереми Деллером  (документальный фильм о фанатах DM «Наше хобби – Depeche Mode» и видеоскетч о британском художнике-оутсайдере «Опыт Брюса Лейси» по заказу Британского института кино). Недавно ретроспективу работ Ника Абрахамса показал лондонский Институт современного искусства, в настоящее время художник готовит к выходу свой первый полнометражный фильм.

Sigur Ros, пост-рок группа, основанная в Исландии 1994 году и известная своим специфическим звучанием и фальцетом вокалиста Йоуна Тоура Биргиссона. На фоне мировой популярности, участники коллектива уделяют большое внимание сохранению национальных традиций – в 2001 году Sigur Ros записали мини-альбом с исландским рыбаком, который на протяжении всех композиций читает под музыку классическую поэзию римюр (rímur); все тексты альбома Ágætis byrjun (2002) созданы на основе языка Vonlenska, сконструированного из бессмысленных слогов, сходных с фонологией исландского языка. На родине Sigur Rós известны серией бесплатных неанонсированных концертов, которые на протяжении лета 2006 музыканты играли на различных открытых площадках – в заброшенных бункерах, общественных кафе (эти концерты вошли в документальный фильм «Heima», вышедший в 2007). В мае 2012 вышел долгожданный Valtari – первый альбом группы после творческого отпуска, мелодичный, менее шумный и более аутентичный по сравнению с предыдущими релизами; а затем последовал Kveikur – альбом 2013, доступный для прослушивания онлайн на официальном сайте sigur-ros.co.uk.

12 Vaughan Street, Llandudno

LL30 1AB  Wales, UK

Hours: Tuesday–Sunday 10:30–5pm

www.mostyn.org

Since its inception in 1989, MOSTYN Open has functioned as a call-out to artists of any age and residing place to enter, with an exhibition of the selected artworks taking place at MOSTYN, and a prize of 10,000 GBP awarded to a single artist or collective. While continuing in this tradition, this 18th edition will also bring a fundamental addition. A prize of 1,000 GBP will be given to the People’s Choice, determined by the artist who receives the most votes from the visiting public during the exhibition’s run. In doing so, the questions that are raised, and central to this renewed edition, are: How do we examine and judge artwork? What criteria do we bring to perceiving, interpreting and understanding artwork? What really makes our favourite? Visitors are invited to make their selection at the People’s Choice voting booth.

MEREDITH DANLUCK – SUNDANCE

Meredith Danluck is an artist and filmmaker working in New York and Los Angeles. She has exhibited at the Liverpool Biennial, Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and Venice Biennale and has a major film installation coming up at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit (MOCAD). She has also screened films at a number of festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Byron Bay International Film Festival, Hamburg International Short Film Festival, and Margaret Mead Film Festival.

North of South, West of East enhances narrative storytelling by wrapping the film around the entire room. Presented in a 20-seat theatre with swivel chairs, Meredith Danluck’s remarkable four-channel narrative feature deftly unspools a darkly humorous tale of small-town folks as they try to make sense of a posthope America. Shot on location in Detroit, Michigan, and Marfa, Texas, this unique film features fantastic performances by Ben Foster, Stella Schnabel, and Sue Galloway, and a soundtrack by Marfa local punk band Solid Waste. – S.

Flyer Art Video 2012 (PDF)

Mauricio Lupini
 | Repeat after reading (O BA), 2011, 1’29” | Ignacio Liprandi Arte Contemporáneo
Working with Brazilian Bossa Nova and Venezuelan Onda Nueva, the series of videos Repeat after reading explores the onomatopoeic words found in both musical “new waves.”

Evandro Machado | Desmaterial, 2011, 7′ | A Gentil Carioca
With objects, drawings and photos, this animated video in black and white conjures up a simple stroll through an imaginary world.

William Kentridge | Anti-Mercator, 2010/11, 9’45” | Goodman Gallery, Marian Goodman Gallery, Lia Rumma
Anti-Mercator explores the artist’s ability to suspend time and resist the spatial linearity presented by scientists such as the cartographer Gerardus Mercator (1512-1594).

Adam Shecter | Hydra, 2006, 2’50” | Eleven Rivington
This work shows partial views from the motion study of a re-imagined, animated hydra.

Ana Prvacki | The Greeting Committee, 2012, 3′ | Lombard Freid Gallery
Ana Prvacki addresses topics such as first impressions and body language. Her characters re-enact awkward situations, such as how to point out spinach in someone’s teeth during a business lunch.

Amar Kanwar | A Love Story, 2010, 5’37” | Marian Goodman Gallery
Amar Kanwar’s short film A Love Story follows the break-up of a romance and encapsulates it in music, words, pace and visual sequences.

Sam Samore | Compendium of Perplexities, 2011, 7′ | Team Gallery
Compendium of Perplexities is a film composed of many non-narrative threads. One character continuously jumps from a balcony, but is always restrained from falling. Another eternally digs a ditch. Two men pass an unconscious woman back and forth between them.

Robin Rhode | Open Court, 2012, 1′ | Lehmann Maupin
A racket-holding actor hits snowballs against a Richard Serra sculpture.

Marie Bovo | Subak, 2010, 4’50” | kamel mennour
A watermelon rolls down narrow streets of a neighborhood in Seoul.

Hans Schabus | Echo, 2009, 3’45” | Zero…
The protagonist of Echo is on the run. Through abandoned wetlands he stumbles into the brush wood, tumbling into the wet mud.

Tim Davis | Counting In, 3’30”, 2012 | Greenberg Van Doren Gallery
Tim Davis filmed bands in their practice spaces and extracted the sections where the songs are counted in. By linking them together, Davis created a piece about the anticipation we feel for a work of art.

Simon Dybbroe Møller | The Loud Speaker, 3’55”, 2012 | Galerie Kamm
“The Loud Speaker takes place in an endless white space. An isolated relationship, between object and human. Between man and woman. We see and we hear the stuff that these relations are made of. The material. The fabric. It is laid out in front of us. The loud speaker is a giant. It is loud. It is masculine. It understands its situation. It also knows that it is helpless. Here it is. Being screamed at by a beautiful woman. An object of desire. An object made man. A man made object.” (Simon Dybbroe Møller)

Ryan McGinley | Varúð, 2012, 8′ | Team Gallery

Kudzanai Chiurai | Creation, 2012, 5’16” | Goodman Gallery

Gonzalo Lebrija | The Distance Between You and Me II, 2008, 2′ | Travesía Cuatro
The artist stands in a deserted landscape with his back to the camera and appears to be running away, distancing himself from the viewer as quickly as possible in a reflex action that seems to result from an almost animal-like instinct.

The video animation Blackout is a short sequence of over 700 drawings, collages, frames and visual material of power lines in Dubai and its surroundings, produced and manipulated by the artist.

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.

Chalayan installation shot, Moscow

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.

Jessica Voorsanger in Stage Struck

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.
