David Gryn: Sound and Vision

In Alimantado, Art Basel, Art Basel in Miami Beach, Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Fair, Daata, Daata Editions, daataeditions, David Gryn, Film, keren cytter, Miami, Miami Beach, Uncategorized, Wilhelm Sasnal on 24/11/2016 at 11:50 am

Returning to curate the Art Basel Miami Beach Film program for a sixth year, David Gryn explains why music has inspired his choices, and how audiences can catch a glimpse of the ‘Best Dressed Chicken in Town’.

david-gryn_blurred-background_html__1_

Each year, as evening darkens the skies over Art Basel Miami Beach, visitors gather on the lawns of SoundScape Park to experience video works from some of the world’s most exciting artists. Sharing picnics, drinks, or simply being absorbed by art, they sit beneath the towering 7,000 square foot projection wall of the New World Center as it displays a program of films carefully chosen by curator David Gryn.

“My selections are quite instinctive,” says Gryn. “I am often attracted by artworks that affect me like music does; a thud in my chest, reverberations through my body, tingles down my neck and spine.” Fittingly then, music is the theme of this year’s program. “As [the New World Center is] a concert venue, music is inherent to the place we show the work and contextually it has a strong resonance. Asking galleries to submit films which engage with music in some way felt like a natural choice.”

Through this year’s theme, Gryn hopes to create a larger-than-life show to excite and engage the broadest possible audience. “Music is something universal. When you have dialogue in a certain language, you often exclude people outside it. Music, like art, crosses that divide – a sort of abstract language that has its own voice and says something about the human condition.”

Be enveloped by art

The program includes a set of 28 short films screened under the title Best Dressed Chicken in Town. “This was named after the 1970s reggae track by Doctor Alimantado, which has long inspired me. The idea behind it was to combine artworks using music and sound which, over the program’s two hour span, swell to a crescendo,” Gryn explains. And though he will not be drawn on a favorite this year (“I picked them, so they’re all my favorites!”), he singles out Terrorist of Love by Keren Cytter as being a film which never fails to make him smile, while Wilhelm Sasnal’s Kiss is “utterly wonderful.”

In addition to the screening of films, this year also heralds the third edition of Surround Sound, a specially commissioned program of sound works designed to take full advantage of SoundScape Park’s 160 speaker surround sound system. “I view my role as that of a facilitator. I aim to serve the artwork, the artist, and the gallery well by presenting pieces which will have the most resonance with the audience in the setting that we have.”

The communal act of experiencing art in this way is something special, says Gryn. “You get a sense of excitement, something you can palpably feel. You really do see an audience being enveloped by art. That’s what this platform achieves – and it encourages galleries, their artists, and a wider audience to take time with mediums that often don’t get much of a look in at events like this. There’s not another experience quite like it in the context of an art fair. Period.”

This compilation of sound artworks will be played nightly during the fair from 6pm until 8pm – when the Film program starts.

In addition to the program of films, this year marks the third edition of Surround Sound, a program through which we have commissioned artists to create or reform work into Surround sound installations. This year’s artists include: Molly Palmer, Sussanah Stark, Ain Bailey, Zoe Buckman, Jonathan Montague and A.K. Burns.

The Soundscape Park experience is unique in the artworld — and a well known location for Miami locals — featuring a huge 7000 sq ft screening wall, with a 160 speaker surround sound system. In the screening area Art Basel provides large beanbag cushions – several people can lounge per cushion. It provides a great calming antidote to the frenetic pace of the Art Fair in the day and the plethoras of other events and parties at night.

NSD/TSD by Ain Bailey

NSD/TSD is a work exploring the natural acoustics of the New World Symphony Centre. This will be achieved by generating audio material from the environments internal soundscape, and composing a multichannel sound work from the resulting audio for presentation on the 160 speaker Surround Sound System in Soundscape Park. The project’s genesis stems from an ongoing research project entitled ‘AGORA’ which takes as a starting point the acoustics of sites such as churches, cinemas and gallery spaces, where people come together to form transitory assemblies.

Ain Bailey is a sound artist, living and working in London, UK. Her current practice involves an exploration of architectural acoustics, live performance, as well as collaborations with performance, visual and sonic artists. Among these is performance/visual artist Jimmy Robert, who commissioned Bailey to create a composition for his 2016 show ‘Desendances du Nu’ at the CAC-Synagogue de Delme, France. Bailey has exhibited and performed both nationally and internationally, and ‘Oh Adelaide’ her collaboration with the artist Sonia Boyce, has shown in London at Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Gallery, and The Kitchen, New York, to name but a few international art spaces. Bailey is also a doctoral scholar at Birkbeck, University of London.

One Round by Zoe Buckman

The audience stand amidst the sound of a speed bag being rhythmically hit in a boxing gym. The sound of the leather hitting the wood: hard and succinct, builds to an almost aggressive quality as it is picked up in surround sound, yet the repetition of this specific sound allows for an almost hypnotic or meditative experience.

The sounds one hears in a boxing gym have a testosterone-heavy quality to them. However during the time Buckman has spent in these spaces, she has drawn parallels between the strength, endurance and confidence needed to survive there, with female-centric experiences such as childbirth.

Zoë Buckman (b.1985, Hackney, East London) is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculpture, photography, embroidery and installation, exploring themes of feminism, mortality and equality. Buckman’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions including Every Curve at Papillion Art, Los Angeles; Present Life at Garis & Hahn Gallery, New York and group exhibitions internationally including Truth to Power, a group show at the Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia, Making and Unmaking, at Camden Arts Centre, London, curated by Duro Olowu; For Freedoms, at Jack Shainman Gallery, NYC; Game On!, at Children’s Museum of Arts, NYC; To Be Young, Gifted & Black, Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg South Africa.

Leave No Trace (Side A) by A.K. Burns (Callicoon Fine Arts)

“Leave No Trace” is an analog audio project by A.K. Burns that is a limited edition vinyl record with a custom plastic bag, a pair of nitrile gloves and a poem. The recording combines ambient environmental recordings, the artist’s own voice, sounds generated from found materials and an old electric guitar. Leave No Trace, is part of a cycle of related works that use science fiction as a point of departure to rework relationships between bodies, nature, technology, territories and resources. The title refers to wilderness ethics as well as pointing to ways one leaves a mark, is codified and recorded.

A.K. Burns (b. 1975) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Burns is a 2016-17 Radcliffe Fellow through the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, where she is developing an ongoing project, Negative Space, a cycle of multi-media installations. The opening episode A Smeary Spot, debuted at Participant Inc, NY in the Fall of 2015. A new iteration will be exhibited at the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, September 2016. The work was initiated with the generous support of a Creative Capital Foundation Visual Arts Award and additional support for this work is being provided through the Education Department’s Spring 2017 Research & Development Season at the New Museum, where Burns is currently in residence. The residency will culminate with an exhibition opening January 2017.

Plundaphonic by Jonathan Montague

Ubik Radio Music Festival, Sound Installation, 2016
Using the narrative of the science fiction paradigm, the notion of self is questioned through sampling the audio back catalogue of my past. To then propose a future self of automated sounds in the format of a radio broadcast. Included is one selected track from the Radio show.

Using space as a material with the motion and affects of sound, I investigate the spatial narrative created via the inhabitation of the viewer, and the perception of sound. My background in Architecture informs the way in which work can inhabit a place and the spatial parameters of its context; giving insight into the way in which boundaries and intersections of spatial territory could be manipulated then occupied. Through investigation into the sonic potential properties of space and sound, conditions of an affect laden automated future, are addressed through access to a dialogue positioned in giving agency to dismantling notions of a predefined future. In my work I use my past as a material to sculpt and modulate, to create a future narrative. With reference to a speculative notion of self-identity, I generate work through a process of dis and re-association with the sampling of self.

Sirens by Molly Palmer
 (Supported by Fountainhead Residency)

There are sounds that follow you from place to place. In the cities while you wait for sleep, the sirens are a voice that makes a map – a long hand sketching lines between the buildings. This is a story and a song, but it is also a dream and a drawing. Sometimes a sound takes on a shape and lies down in your skull. An amoebic symbol stretching out from your bed to the edge of the night. The stereo version of this track uses binaural sound and benefits best from listening with headphones. 

Molly Palmer is a London-based artist who works within and between the media of music, installation, choreography and filmmaking. Using handmade props, sets and costumes to produce layered video worlds, she green-screens her protagonists into parallel places, where music, gesture and dialogue form cyclical narratives that explore the strangeness concealed within ordinary things. Palmer graduated from Royal Academy Schools this year, where she won the Gold Medal. Recent exhibitions and screenings include Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, RA Schools Show 2016, Royal Academy, London, Talk So I can See You, curated by Pil & Galia for the Czech Cultural Foundation, London, Premiums, Royal Academy, London, The Fade : touring solo show at CCA, Glasgow, Enclave, London and Torna, Istanbul, and Mono 5, curated by Rafal Zajko at The Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton, Herðubreið Theater Cinema, Seyðisfjörður, Bikini Wax, Mexico City and MUPU, Oaxaca.

The Wheel (featuring Don Hay) by Susannah Stark 

The Wheel, featuring vocals by London-based artist/musician Donald Hayden, is a recording in two parts that run parallel, intersecting across each other and finally together at once and on top of each other in a sculptural experience. Low-fi effects create a sense of echo and disorientation, a technique that was used in dub tracks in the 70s to bring about a metaphoric space of freedom and change, punctuated by layers of disembodied, digitised voices, like those that occur in the contemporary urban environment. This history is revisited to expose and uncover elements of language embedded in our everyday experience. The Wheel is about slowing down, peeling away words on the surface: the language of advertisement, spam, media and public manipulation, telesales and broadcasting, highlighting the flow of things – language – traded in a capitalist marketplace, inviting people to look beyond the constraints of the work and the language that is presented to them.

Susannah Stark is a scottish artist and printmaker, working with multimedia installation and sound, incorporating or involving issues of voice, power and reappropriation. This is part of an ongoing process of exploring how much of the western identity can be constructed from diverse popular sources and how the mouth may be the modulator for such regurgitations and formations. Her work explores the slippages between objects and voices translated from digital experience, to highlight and challenge material hierarchies.

With a title borrowed from a classic 1970s reggae song by Jamaican dj/singer Doctor Alimantado, this year’s short film program focuses on a selection of international artists who engage with music in a multitude of ways. All the films in this varied and exciting program demonstrate the power of music to attract an audience, keep it engaged, elicit suspense and tug at the heartstrings. Similar to classical symphony works, the order of the films builds up a crescendo to create an awe-inspiring magic derived from the works in their entirety.

Selected from the show’s participating galleries by David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions and Artprojx, this year’s program will include ‘Muxima’, the first film by Chilean-born artist Alfredo Jaar, as well as a silent film about music by Christian Marclay and a new work by Liliana Porter.

The program will also include short films by Edgardo Aragón, Ain Bailey and Sonia Boyce, Cabelo, Kudzanai Chiurai, Martin Creed, Keren Cytter, Kim Gordon, Rodney Graham, György Kovásznai, Rashid Johnson, Li Daiguo, Li Shurui, Jillian Mayer, Ana Mendieta, Haroon Mirza, Ara Peterson, Alex Prager, Anri Sala, Wilhelm Sasnal, Tromarama and Samson Young among many others.

Screenings will take place both in SoundScape Park on the 7,000 square-foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, as well as on dedicated touchscreen monitors within the Film Library at Art Basel’s show in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

In addition, Marian Masone, New York based film consultant and strategist, has selected ‘Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back’ (2016) directed by Maura Axelrod, for a special screening at the Colony Theatre on Friday, December 2.

Returning for his sixth year, curator David Gryn presents several works that engage with music, including a set of 28 short films screened under the title ‘Best Dressed Chicken in Town’ after a classic 1970s reggae song by Jamaican singer Doctor Alimantado.

The lineup focuses on a selection of international artists who engage with music in a multitude of ways. A ‘Double Bill’ program will pair two film works that share similar themes or approaches to an intense musical score: Rita Ackermann (b. 1968) and Christian Marclay (b. 1955) on Wednesday, and Liliana Porter (b. 1941) and Alfredo Jaar (b. 1956) on Friday.

The late screening on Thursday, December 1 will feature works by sound artist and DJ Ain Bailey (b. 1963), with Sonia Boyce (b.1962), along with pieces by Anna Grenman (b. 1984), Rashid Johnson (b. 1977), Alex Prager (b. 1979) and Penny Siopis (b. 1953).

The final presentation on Saturday, December 3 will include three early films by Polish artist Wilhelm Sasnal (b. 1972), in which he added visual accompaniment to enhance the aural experience, along with a recent work, in which the score directly drives the narrative, replacing spoken words.

Every evening, directly preceding the Film program, surround sound works by Ain Bailey, Zoë Buckman, A.K. Burns, Jonathan Montague, Molly Palmer and Susannah Stark will be presented on the state-of-the-art surround system in SoundScape Park.

In conjunction with the outdoor film screenings, over 50 works have been selected to be shown exclusively within Art Basel’s designated Film Library at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Visitors will be able to individually screen over 50 works by artists such as Stephen Dean, Edith Dekyndt, Maggie Lee, Gabriel Lester, Shelly Nadashi, Sophie Nys, João Vasco Paiva, Betye Saar, Jason Simon, Su-Mei Tse and Tuo Wang. The Film Library is accessible inside the fair halls on touch-screen monitors during show hours. Access with a show entrance ticket.

On Sunday, December 4 at 2pm, Art Basel’s Salon program will feature ‘The Artist as Composer’, a talk between the artists Rachel Manson, Molly Palmer and Susannah Stark, and Kathryn Mikesell, Founder of The Fountainhead Residency and Studios in Miami. The talk will be moderated by William Simmons, author, Hyperallergic, New York, with an introduction by Film and Sound curator David Gryn.

Art Basel entry tickets include admission to Salon.

To coincide with the opening of the 73rd Venice International Film Festival, Daata Editions and Zuecca Project Space collaboratively present Oh the Humanity, an exhibition of video works by Daniel Keller & Martti Kalliala, Takeshi Murata, Jon Rafman, opening at the Hotel Excelsior on Wednesday 31 August 2016, 6 – 9pm.

The exhibition opens a dimensional window from the world of cinematography and the recreation of reality, to the a realm of digital and virtual media, where the suspension of disbelief is heightened and the connection to the “now” all the more vibrant. The project aims to re-contextualize video and digital artwork by breaking out from the white-cube and into the “real-world”. Daata Editions‘ mission of creating/commissioning “democratic” art pieces, is fulfilled by confronting the general public with the work that in turn is assimilated into the environment and becomes part of a new concept of exhibiting.

Daata Editions Director David Gryn's Favorite Works from LISTE 2016

David Gryn is the director and co-founder of the year-old digital art and video collecting platform Daata Editions and the film curator at Art Basel Miami Beach, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that his picks for LISTE 2016 tend toward moving images, technological interventions, and outide-the-box thinking of all kinds. Read up on the rationale behind his selections here, and stop by the fair from June 14-19 in Basel, Switzerland for more art world action.

MICHAEL AUDER
Gemälde II, 2015
Fonti

auder

As someone who ostensibly works with artists of the moving image I was compelled to select Michel Auder, a rare artist that seamlessly crosses the terrain between both art and filmmaking. Here’s a quote from Michel Auder that matches my thoughts on this selection: “When people ask me what’s the best thing I like, my head starts scrambling and I just can’t think of anything. Depending on the day, I might say this or that. I really don’t have any specific thing that I like better than others.”

 

JESSE DARLING
Colonel Shanks, 2016
Arcadia Missa

Jesse Darling

The Jesse Darling works shown by Arcadia Missa have a great sense of self, humor, and balance. I have been aware of Jesse and her work for some time and it is really getting the attention it deserves.

INGA MELDERE
“Students painting some of the remarkable scenery in the park”, 2016
Temnikova & Kasela Gallery

meldere

I have always been a big fan of the “sublime,” so this humorous Caspar David Friedrich-esque take by Inga Meldere took me by surprise. Temnikova and Kasela Gallery is an Estonian gallery and an art world gem.

 

SHANA MOULTON
Every Angle is an Angel, 2016
Galerie Crevoecoeur

moulton

Last year I selected Shana Mouton’s MindPlace ThoughtStream for the film program I curate for Art Basel Miami Beach—I knew how much I valued the work as I took endless images of it whilst it was playing on the huge 7000 square foot outdoor screen. I recently spent many days with Shana’s moving image works as a Daata Editions neighbor to the Gregor Staiger space at Independent Brussels and was mesmerized by the work’s magic. They are witty, aesthetic, intelligent, and spellbinding—they really are complete artworks.

 

ERKKA NISSINEN
Vantaa, 2007
Ellen de Bruijne Projects

nissinen

Crazy, funny, dark, engaging, bizarre—everything we should want from a great Finnish artist. Brilliant.

 

XIMENA GARRIDO-LECCA
Destilaciones, 2014
80m2 Livia Benavides

lecca

I have been increasingly observing that ceramics making their presence felt at art fairs. This is chiefly because my wife, the artist Jane Bustin, makes wonderful artworks with ceramic and porcelain (as well as paint, metals and fabrics)—my eye has been altered irrevocably to look more and more at this medium. This Ximena Garrido-Lecca installation at 80m2 Livia Benavides is earthy, historical, current, and intriguing.

 

DAWN KASPER
M44, 2016
David Lewis

kasper
I am drawn to these Dawn Kasper sculptures, as I am obsessed with music intersecting with art making.

 

YURI PATTISON
dust scraper fan 1.9 (power and wealth to honor leaders or religions to stretch architectural limits), 2016
mother’s tankstation

pattison

Yuri Pattison pushes the boundaries of our art world and how data engages with us all. I’m hugely looking forward to his first UK institutional show at Chisenhale opening in July, as well the outcomes of his winning the Frieze Artist Prize for 2016.

 

GERDA SCHEEPERS
The Style, 2016
Blank

scheepers

Gerda Scheepers makes collages that disturb and disrupt, but are cohesive and use disparate materials to create an aesthetic whole.


Notes:

Overall in my selections I have been somewhat drawn to similar sculptural forms and colours evolving from a variety of materials (Sheepers, Pattison, Kasper, Darling) and obviously (to me) selecting some moving image works (Nissinen, Moulton, Auder), as they are great and it is vital that galleries at art fairs bring art forms that do not necessarily have the same commercial allure as 2d object based artworks, but as art mediums that are being used by most artists, which you would not believe, if you only ever saw artworks at art fairs.

I am always looking at/and for moving image and sound works at art fairs … and alas, rarely find much. It has been my work for over the last 15 years – being focused on showing artists moving image works and most often projects during major art fair periods, as this is when the finite art audience reaches its highest demand for art consumption. 

Liste, like NADA, Sunday, etc … gives us hope in the art world that there is the potential for great new galleries, new artists, new ideas – before the cyclical homogeneity (albeit often great!) of the major art fair commercial allure sets it.

It’s Nice That – A Chat with Daata Editions

The problems with digital art and why moving image is so important: a chat with Daata Editions

The problem with the relative newness of media like video, digital and internet art is that unlike a canvas or a sculpture, people can struggle with the ideas of how to show, sell and “own” them. In a culture where film, gifs and other forms of creative work are available online, everywhere, to many people the idea of what is and isn’t art, and how you own it, is confusing. While everyone accepts that video art and digital art are still valid and important media; there are few organisations making the leap into viewing them in the commercial art world in the same way we would more traditional formats.

Digital art platform Daata Editions is changing all that, having launched last year as a space to champion a curated selection of commissioned pieces by artists working in digital, sound, moving image and internet art. Its first season featured 18 artists, and each created six new works available to buy on the website in editions of 15. Among the artists featured in season one are Jon Rafman, David Blandy and Rachel Maclean. Daata Editions has just announced its second season, with work by Tracey Emin, Jake Chapman and Casey Jane Ellison. The works will be priced from $100 upwards (around £70), and can be bought from 5 May. To coincide with the launch, we spoke to Daata Editions’ director David Gryn about how the platform works, why we need it, and changing attitudes towards digital and moving image art.

Why did you decide to start Daata Editions?

I’ve been working with artist moving image for nearly 20 years, so I have an instinct of how the art world and audiences engage with it, and how the market works with it. I previously curated video for Art Basel Miami, working with the art fair about how galleries can work with moving image. People often don’t bring it to art fairs as it doesn’t sell well, so I tried to bring it to life. We wanted to encourage galleries into programming exceptional moving image artists as they’re part of the fabric of the contemporary art world; but it was never made a priority. I wanted to encourage other models and platforms for showing artist moving image.

Tameka Norris: did you like that

What are the problems with showing people art that lives online, in a world where we’re so surrounded by online images and audio, all the time?

We need to define art processes and work with artists who make art, not “content”. The web-based media want to serve a huge audience but it’s important to define that everything I do is about art and artists, not about wacky social media tropes. We’re empowering the artists, the audience and the collector to do what they do with this medium, and making sure it’s the artist we’re talking about rather than the great technical media we’re working with.

As technology evolves so rapidly, what are your feelings about the longevity of the work and the platform?

I don’t want to start guessing what the next 20 years will be like, but the better artists work with the greatest quality materials. Daata Editions is about looking at how to serve artists best and how to pay them, promote the work and make the business sustain itself. I wanted to create a model, not the model, and work with people trying to do the best of what they do.

Tracey-emin-i-can't-love-anymore
Tracey Emin: I Can’t Love Anymore

How do you select the artists you work with?

I just filter things by instinct, we work with a few other people including writers and curators, but we hear about a lot of artists through other artists. The site has the rudiments of being a gallery but the boundaries of a website rather than a gallery wall, so the art has to work with that.

We choose things you think can engage an audience, but also someone with currency in the art world. We’re taking a risk with some artists, but some have that currency already. We’re trying to keep it as open as possible, and the relationships that work well have a very collaborative nature. It’s a pleasure to make the process happen and try to read the crystal ball of who’s going to be successful. We’re not trying to be purveyors of the future but we’re saying “this is a system we’re believing in and it’s working well.” It’s a medium we want to engage with more and more.

What are the practicalities of the site, in terms of payment, rights and ownership of the work?

We’ve tried to price everything flat, not according to the current market. The pieces are downloaded onto a screen of a platform of your choice, but anyone can see them free with a watermark. We felt we should allow the audience to see the whole thing, and the person who wants to own it gets the limited-edition number.

We’re trying to create something where people can see it and buy it in a way that artists get paid and the next round of commissioning happens. Its aims are about paying the artists and continuing the business.

Daata Editions et l’art de demain

Franck Barthelemy feature on Daata Editions in Asialyst.

From the New York Times Conference: Art for Tomorrow in Doha, Qatar, March 2016. Posted to celebrate Daata Editions participation in the inaugural Independent Brussels April 2016.

La dernière conférence du New York Times Art for Tomorrow s’est tenue à Doha (Qatar) en mars dernier.
Le thème choisi pour 2016 n’est pas banal, même à Doha, une ville qui se projette sans complexe dans le XXIème siècle : Technology, Creativity and the City. Des intervenants prestigieux du monde des arts et au delà du monde de l’urbanisme ont échangé idées et arguments avec passion, parfois confusion.
Parmi elles, Charles Landry, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa, Wim Pijbes, Aric Chen, Jean Nouvel, David Gryn, Jeff Koons, Marina Abramovic et plusieurs dizaines d’autres.
J’ai particulièrement apprécié les débats sur l’art et l’internet, qu’il s’agisse d’accès, d’appréciation ou de modalité de vente.
Les partisans de l’art qu’on doit voir « en vrai » et ceux de l’art qu’on peut voir sur un écran se sont affrontés avec diplomatie pour aboutir à un dialogue du type anciens contre modernes.

Je crois que ce débat est persistant dans un monde où les technologies ne cessent d’évoluer.
Je crois aussi qu’il est inutile.
Il y aura toujours des amateurs de musées réels et des amateurs de musées virtuels.
Il y aura sans doute d’autres formes de « lieux » d’expositions dans les années à venir.
Et surtout, il y a déjà et il y aura encore de nouvelles formes d’art, des formes que les artistes inventent en fonction des technologies disponibles.

Je crois que le débat doit s’ouvrir à ces nouvelles formes d’art.
Par exemple, un son. Comment le fait-on entendre ? Dans le circuit des galeries ? Pas facile ! Quel prix attribuer à un son ? Comment l’artiste développeur de son peut-il vivre de son œuvre ? Comment distribuer un son ? Comment stocker un son ? On peut se poser les mêmes questions pour une succession d’images animées de 3 secondes par exemple. Ou encore, une vidéo de 1.5 minute.

L’initiative de David Gryn, un commissaire américain (le créateur de Film à Art Basel Miami Beach depuis 2011), spécialiste d’images animées, m’est apparue à cet égard remarquable.
Gryn a créé l’an dernier Daata Editions, une plateforme internet dédiée aux images animées, aux sons et aux courtes vidéos. Depuis plusieurs années, il se demandait comment promouvoir et développer un public pour les artistes qui produisent des images animées et des sons que l’on trouve parfois gratuitement sur internet sur les sites des artistes, et plus généralement nulle part excepté dans quelques musées ou des collections très spécialisés.

Sur ses propres fonds et initialement soutenu (grâce à la pratique du seed funding) par la collectionneuse et philanthrope Anita Zabludowicz, Gryn a conçu un site internet pour distribuer des images animées et des sons.
Son point de départ : comment aider ces artistes qui utilisent des supports multimédia que l’on n’expose pas dans les galeries et en conséquence qui sont peu vendus.
S’ils sont peu vendus, ils sont peu connus et n’ont donc aucune chance d’accéder à un large public.

Gryn propose en ligne des « saisons » qu’il commissionne à des artistes qu’il connaît personnellement ou qui lui sont recommandés.
Il fait son travail de commissaire et sélectionne quelques artistes. Il produit l’œuvre de l’artiste et l’achète.
Il propose ensuite de vendre sur la plateforme internet une édition de 15 en général. Pour chaque vente, l’artiste touche une royaltie.

La première « saison » a présenté le travail de 18 artistes, spécialement conçu pour être vendu sur la plateforme.
A peu près 300 œuvres ont été vendues en ligne à un peu de moins de 100 clients.
Le prix d’une œuvre varie de quelques centaines à quelques milliers de dollars.

Le site n’est pas une galerie en ligne mais une plateforme de distribution.
Chaque artiste est montré de la même façon. Personne n’est mis en avant.
L’acheteur potentiel doit faire un choix parmi les artistes de la saison en cours. Il doit être actif et exercer son sens critique pour passer à l’acte d’achat.
L’acheteur doit trouver les images, le son ou la vidéo qu’il veut, qu’il recherche ou tout simplement qui l’interpellera.
Au bout du compte, il se retrouvera avec un fichier sur son ordinateur qu’il appréciera seul, qu’il partagera avec des amis, qu’il mettra peut-être en scène chez lui.

Gryn n’a pas l’intention d’attirer sur la plateforme les fonds d’investissement qui font et défont les cotes des artistes contemporains.
Il partage naïvement avec d’autres collectionneurs ce qu’il trouve bon et intéressant, parfois avec l’aide d’autres experts ou amateurs de son entourage. Gryn construit un écosystème pour soutenir de nouvelles formes d’art immatérielles.
Pour le moment, Dataa Editions est une petite start-up qui emploie une personne à mi-temps.
Compte tenu de l’évolution constante des formes d’art et des technologies pour les réaliser, je peux aisément imaginer que la petite start-up deviendra grande.

En fait, le succès de l’entreprise de David Gryn a peu d’importance.
Il ouvre une réflexion sur la distribution des œuvres d’art, matérielles et immatérielles. Il nous propose d’imaginer de nouvelles voies, de nouveaux écosystèmes pour soutenir la création.
Les conversations de Doha ont porté davantage sur les lieux et les infrastructures pour accueillir la création.
Peut-être que l’an prochain, pourraient- elles porter sur les nouvelles formes d’art dans la citée et les nouveaux écosystèmes pour les encourager ?
