Daata Editions presents a new Foreword by Andrew Goldstein, editor-in-chief of artnet News

When it comes to existing in the ebb and flow of the art market, the paradoxical conundrum of digital (aka new media) art is present in its very name: While we live in an increasingly digital world, making such art ever more essential to mirror our lived experiences, the fact that we can’t touch this advanced variety of art with our own palpating digits makes it harder to sell, trickier to collect, and less commercially viable on the whole. …

Will this new art form one day come to us through subscription services, with physical objects as upsells? Will access to streaming digital art eventually be bundled together with other paid services, à la Amazon Prime? The commercial viability of digital art depends upon the continuation of such experiments, with persistent ingenuity and the ability to see beyond the time-honoured mechanism of gallery sales. For this reason, Daata Editions deserves our gratitude, and support.

A Goth Life — is a selection of artist works that compiled together make a composite tale of our joyously souless, self-reflective, insular, tension and angst ridden times. The use of the internet is our guide, confidente, entertainment, mirror, window, general outlet and has created a real alternative social reality, with artists commentating on and providing a contemporary anthropology for this coming of age.

Strangelove interview with David Gryn and Terry Smith

tOyIJPaFcmJJQhdg7Yz2rIK52VyWyUrpzl0Uv9lHiEk,dEg5MObmadmo0PSJUH5JS5i12B9Oo8LCaMQvZS8wV6I

An interview with David Gryn (Artprojx) and Terry Smith (workinprogress) about their collaboration on the Strangelove Festival.

How did your involvement with CSM on the Strangelove Festival come about?

DG. Terry and I had an initial meeting with Mark Dunhill where we all expressed our hopes to find ways to empower and unite students from across the disciplines and courses at CSM, as well as shining a light on what happens inside the college for those on the outside.

TS. It was a good basis for a collaboration, Mark was very keen to find a project that brought all of the college together under one umbrella. This made sense for David and I who have been talking about an artist’s film and video festival for a number of years.

I understand that your own practice relates to film and video work – can you tell us a bit about your background in moving image?

DG. For over 20 years I have been engaged with the promotion and curation of artists’ moving image generally in the context of the cinema, working with leading galleries, museums, art fairs and artists worldwide.

TS. Well, I come from the point of view of an artist.
I have been working in moving image since I was a student back in the late 70s but it was only in 1999 that I picked up the medium again. I am currently working on projects that combine moving image with live music and performance. But I don’t see myself as a video artist. I see myself as an artist that trespasses on other territories.

How did you select the artists whose work is included in your curated screening programmes?

DG. The majority of works are by artists I selected for the most recent Film – Art Basel in Miami Beach 2014. The central starting point was for artists’ work that engages with our everyday, static surfing, and obsessive interaction with the natural language and enamour of all things digital and internet, and works that are generally playful.

TS. Although we have given titles and categories to different screening programmes, I want the viewer to treat them with pinch of salt. My choices reflect work that I am curious about, work that has made an impression on me, and work I am jealous of and wish I had made.

Moving image is an important part of virtually every programme area across CSM embracing fashion communication, graphics, animation, screen acting and directing, used in a myriad of ways and not confined to fine art moving image practice. How did that spread impact upon your ideas for the festival?

DG. The festival was intended to show or enable students to take reference from every available source – animation, painting, fashion, dance, performance, sculpture, collage, architecture, online, music, cinema, culture, history, philosophy, language, science and much much more. In essence film is a place where all our learning and experience combines into a powerful collaborative outcome. This was the essence of this festival, to encourage the college to come together to enable greater learning, collaboration, and empowerment via a medium we all use and observe daily in our work, creativity and life.

TS. Yes, I agree

Do you have a must-see event?

DG. Obviously the Armchair Surfers Digital Revolutionaries screening programme – as the digital revolutionaries are all of us as we use, observe, interrogate this ever developing medium that extends, entrances, and baffles us in equal measure. The two films of Jennifer Reeder are a wonderful, engaging, moving and witty insight into the world of post teenage womanhood. The premier of Scott Reeder’s Moon Dust, a feature film that took the artist over 10 years to make. And Beatrice Gibson’s F for Fibonacci, which was premiered during the recent Frieze Art Fair at the Laura Bartlett Gallery. There is also The Music of Regret by Laurie Simmons that I first premiered (with Salon 94 and Performa) in 2006, this features Meryl Streep and the Alvin Ailey II Dance Company. It will be exciting to see this again with different and somewhat older eyes.

TS. I am looking forward to the event on the Monday 16 March, where the screen writer and director Tony Grisoni presents For the Dark. I think this will be a stunning experience and a great way to open the festival. I like the fact that the idea began over a coffee in a cafe in Stoke Newington. I am looking forward also to the Armchair Surfers because a lot of the work is new to me. Of the screenings I chose, I think they are all must see works. We also asked Vassiliki Tzanakou and SHAPE to make their own choices. I worked with SHAPE on the selection and I am looking forward
to seeing the work of Katherine Araniello projected, who is an artist who happens to be disabled. But I guess I personally am looking forward to some of the events that have been generated from staff at CSM.

Terry Smith – About Face, 2013

Wanderers through a sea of fog:

A talk by artists; David Blandy, Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski, Terry Smith and curator David Gryn about the Film and Video Art Commission for the Royal College of Psychiatrists

Date: 6.30pm on Tuesday 15 April 2014

Venue: Royal College of Psychiatrists, 21 Prescot Street, London E1 8BB

The College President, Professor Dame Sue Bailey OBE FRCPsych, will introduce the talk.

The artists were selected and commissioned to create a moving image work for the foyer of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ new building at 21 Prescot Street.

Their art works were conceived and modified specifically for the new space and their presentation on a bank of three screens, offering staff, members and visitors contemplative and a visual provocation.

The College’s decision to prioritise the inclusion of contemporary art in this way signals both a recognition of psychiatry’s importance to visual and aesthetic culture, as well as the importance of the institution to work with a wide array of partners from across the cultural spectrum.

The lecture will begin at 6:30pm prompt and will be followed by a drinks reception. Please note: there is a charge of £5 per place to attend this lecture, payable on the evening.

Places are limited for this event and will be allocated on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.To reserve your place, please email Thomas Kennedy at tkennedy@rcpsych.ac.uk by Monday 14 April 2014.

About the artists:

David Blandy

David Blandy – Wanderer Through a Sea of Fog, 2013

David Blandy – Wanderer Through a Sea of Fog, 2013

“Wanderer Through a Sea of Fog” is a three screen video work that forms a meditation on our relationship to the sublime in the digital age. The work documents an unending transition between psychological states, a passage of the soul, from fog to clarity, with the constant presence of the “dark wood” of Dante’s Comedy. A digital version of the artist, as though exited from an old computer game, walks through landscapes formed from adapting and combining paintings by the Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich. Our environment has changed, as we move to a more digitally-mediated life, but our anxieties, confusion and awe in the face of nature remain.

David Blandy is an artist who investigates our relationship with the popular culture that surrounds us, investigating what makes us who we are. Blandy has exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, including Kiasma, Helsinki; Künstlerhaus Stuttgart; Baltic, Gateshead, and was the recipient of the Great North Run Moving Image Commission 2011. In 2010 he was Winner of “The Times/The South Bank Show Breakthrough Award”, and he is represented by Seventeen Gallery. His films are distributed through LUX.

 

 

Solstice_03

Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski – Solstice, 2013

Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski – Solstice, 2013

Shot over the course of a few days prior to the Glastonbury Festival 2013, on the ley line running through the Vale of Avalon, Solstice is an exploration of the histories, landscape and atmosphere of what has come before and what will be. A landscape film in which the artists play with light and architecture to create a dreamy montage of loosely connected and at times abstract imagery, leaving the narrative up to the eye of the viewer. A poetic offering of something that is both myth and reality.

Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski live and work in London. Their multi-disciplinary practice encompasses video, music, performance, installation, screenprints and sculpture. Their work has been shown in London, New York, Berlin and Paris. Recent group exhibitions include Oblique at David Dale Gallery, Glasgow; Les Urbaines, Lausanne, Switzerland and E-Vapor-8 at 319 Scholes, New York. Recent performances by their band Das Hund include Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; Zabludowicz Collection, London and Cell Project Space, London. Their Artists Commission was published in Issue Ten of Art Licks Magazine, which also featured them on the cover. Their 2012 solo exhibition Danse-moi vers la fin de l’amour was the culmination of a two year project by the artists, exploring the freedoms that result from the hedonistic ritual of dance. In 2011 they were shortlisted for the Converse/Dazed Emerging Artist Award with The Whitechapel Gallery. They also run French Riviera a gallery space in Bethnal Green, London, which operates as an extension of their long-standing collaboration.

 

Terry Smith – About Face, 2013

In the diagnosis of many physical and mental conditions observation is paramount. But every day we all make decisions about our fellow travellers by their dress sense, demeanour and disposition; we have soft forensic eyes that observe constantly. Artists have used portraits and in particular self-portraits to explore the nature of looking and being looked at, this work About Face attempts to bring this painting characteristic to the moving image. Assembled from hundreds of still images, this is a stop-motion animation synced to three screens.

Terry Smith lives and works in London’s East End. He has created large-scale installations and site-specific interventions worldwide since 1994. The building interventions began with a series wall cuts in houses ready to be demolished in East London by gaining illegal entry and making the work in secret. Other works that evolved from this period include Capital, 1995 an intervention in Gallery 49 at the British Museum, six wall cuttings at Tate Modern during its reconstruction in 1996, and at MACBA, Barcelona where he fired 35,000 staples into the walls of the museum.

Preoccupied with exploring and experimenting in new media, recent projects, have included Broken Voices 2007, The Foundling 2009 both works that incorporated a tour of performances from Liverpool to Venice, and made a series of works for a choir in Caracas, Venezuela called Caracol 2010. In 2011 his solo show Parallax, curated by David Thorp at the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, brought together for the first time many of the diverse strands to his practice. In 2012 he made two performance works, Combine and Unsung. In 2013 he has had a major presentation of his work in New York, one in partnership with the New Museum and Ideas City, which consisted of a 20m x 12m drawing on the outside of buildings in the East Village, and the other at The Drawing Center.

Still: Good News/Bad News by Meredith Danluck

Cinema Series III (Good News/Bad News), 2013. 13min.

by Meredith Danluck 

Selected and curated by David Gryn at ZARYA Center for Contemporary Art. 16-31 Oct

Danluck’s ongoing body of work, The Cinema Series addresses cinematic tropes, archetypical identities and narrative expectation.  Good News/Bad News is the third in the series and explores the various interpretations of what our feelings “look like” when interpreted cinematically. Fifteen actors from different backgrounds were selected and given a sparse script and minimal direction to embody their personal version of how receiving both good news and bad news looks and feels. Exhibited here as a two-channel wall projection, the film demonstrates the common narrative device of receiving good news or bad news on the telephone.  Shown side by side we see each actor’s body language and face change as we follow them through opposing emotions.  Patterns emerged during this process; a hand to the face to show grief, a quick shuffling of feet to show joy, posing a question as to where consensus originates, with the audience or the screen?

Meredith Danluck graduated from School of Visual Arts in New York with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. She has exhibited at the Liverpool Biennial, Reina Sofia Museum, MoMA, PS1 Museum, Venice Biennale and has a major film installation coming up at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit (MOCAD) Fall of 2012. She has screened films at a number of festivals including Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Byron Bay, Hamburg International and Margaret Mead. In the spring of 2008 Danluck directed her first documentary feature, The Ride, a documentary about cowboys and the American identity which screened at MoMA  as part of an exhibition about the American West curated by Eva Respini. The Ride had it’s official World Premiere at the South by South West Film Festival in March of 2010.After that she immediately flew to Siberia to  direct another feature documentary, Art Hard, about the world’s largest artwork in the world. Her most ambitious work up to date is a four channel feature film entitled, North of south, West of East which was commissioned by Ballroom Marfa and screened at Sundance 2013. These four feature length narrative films play simultaneously in perfect symphony. She was selected for the Sundance 2013 Writers Lab as well as the 2013 Sundance Directors Lab for her upcoming feature. She most recently showed the first installment of the Cinema Series in a solo show with Leslie Fritz this summer.  Danluck lives and works in New York.

Terry Smith – About Face

Curated by David Gryn

The foyer of the Royal College of Psychiatry’s new building at 21 Prescot Street proudly hosts three specially commissioned video artworks. These works, shown in rotation, were conceived for the space and presentation on a bank of three screens, offering staff, members and visitors both a pause for contemplation and a visual provocation. The RCP’s decision to prioritise the inclusion of contemporary art in this way signals both a recognition of psychiatry’s importance to visual and aesthetic culture, as well as the importance of the institution to work with a wide array of partners from across the cultural spectrum.

The three artists presented here are all highly regarded and critically respected, each with an established yet distinctive video practice. Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski’s montage of scenes shot on the solstice along ley-lines in Glastonbury, captures a meditative and mystical calm awash with colour. David Blandy playfully fuses the arcade game with the Romantic era paintings of sublime landscapes. Terry Smith, a life-long local East Ender, utilises the three screens to explore the face, playing the familiar child’s game of ‘mix and match’; the inter-changing eyes, nose and mouth, here, draw attention to the way we look at, read and understand faces.

The impressive new RCP premises is a wonderful context for presenting these art works and has been an honour to work on for the participating artists, and we hope the works will in turn be a delight for all the users and visitors of the space.

WANDERER THROUGH A SEA OF FOG, 2013

“Wanderer Through a Sea of Fog” is a three screen video work that forms a meditation on our relationship to the sublime in the digital age. The work documents an unending transition between psychological states, a passage of the soul, from fog to clarity, with the constant presence of the “dark wood” of Dante’s Comedy. A digital version of the artist, as though exited from an old computer game, walks through landscapes formed from adapting and combining paintings by the Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich. Our environment has changed, as we move to a more digitally-mediated life, but our anxieties, confusion and awe in the face of nature remain.

David Blandy is an artist who investigates our relationship with the popular culture that surrounds us, investigating what makes us who we are. Blandy has exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, including Kiasma, Helsinki; Künstlerhaus Stuttgart; Baltic, Gateshead, and was the recipient of the Great North Run Moving Image Commission 2011. In 2010 he was Winner of “The Times/The South Bank Show Breakthrough Award”, and he is represented by Seventeen Gallery. His films are distributed through LUX.

SOLSTICE, 2013

Shot over the course of a few days prior to the Glastonbury Festival 2013, on the ley line running through the Vale of Avalon, Solstice is an exploration of the histories, landscape and atmosphere of what has come before and what will be. A landscape film in which the artists play with light and architecture to create a dreamy montage of loosely connected and at times abstract imagery, leaving the narrative up to the eye of the viewer. A poetic offering of something that is both myth and reality.

Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski live and work in London. Their multi-disciplinary practice encompasses video, music, performance, installation, screenprints and sculpture. Their work has been shown in London, New York, Berlin and Paris. Recent group exhibitions include Oblique at David Dale Gallery, Glasgow; Les Urbaines, Lausanne, Switzerland and E-Vapor-8 at 319 Scholes, New York. Recent performances by their band Das Hund include Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; Zabludowicz Collection, London and Cell Project Space, London. Their Artists Commission was published in Issue Ten of Art Licks Magazine, which also featured them on the cover. Their 2012 solo exhibition Danse-moi vers la fin de l’amour was the culmination of a two year project by the artists, exploring the freedoms that result from the hedonistic ritual of dance. In 2011 they were shortlisted for the Converse/Dazed Emerging Artist Award with The Whitechapel Gallery. They also run French Riviera a gallery space in Bethnal Green, London, which operates as an extension of their long-standing collaboration.
