陆扬的互动灵车 – 2017年陆扬作品

The Daata Editions Commission, powered by Artune. (A Free Download)

Released at PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai and online at Daata Editons on Sept 7 

Daata Editions委约作品,由Artune赞助支持

LuYang Interactive Hearse. This new commission links to Lu Yang’s recent work ‘LuYang Delusional Mandala’, referencing the Chinese text within the artwork, is derived from Buddha’s first teaching: ‘like everything high will fall down, everything together will separate, all living things will die’.

陆扬的互动灵车 | 这一新委约作品与艺术家近期新作《陆扬妄想曼陀罗》息息相关,作品的重点是一段中文文字,取自于佛陀最初的教诲,意为:一切处于高位的终将落下,一切一起的终将分离,一切活着的终将死去。

‘LuYang Interactive Hearse’ is an artwork of the artists own imagined funeral, a death portrait as a living animation, with the imagined dead artist’s face smiling at you on both sides of hearses LED screen, while it moves along its ever-lonely journey.

在《陆扬的互动灵车》中,艺术家想象了自己的葬礼,她选用动画作为自己的遗像,在灵车两边的LED屏幕上,死去的艺术家在朝你微笑,但她也正踏上愈发孤独的一个人的旅程。

This Free to Download artwork on Daata Editions, coincides with Toby Ziegler’s Freud Museum exhibition The Genesis Speech, comprises a sequence of still and moving images on two screens generated using Russian search engine ‘Yandex’, and a score made by the artist in collaboration with Richard Russell. The top screen displays a slowly shifting sequence of eclectic representations of the hand, including Napoleon’s sceptre The Hand of Justice, a design for a futuristic prosthetic arm said to outperform the real thing and the dismembered hand from Evil Dead 2 which is reanimated and attempts to kill its former owner. The bottom screen shows a rapidly accelerating succession of tangental images deemed to be ‘visually similar‘ by a reverse image search, tightly synced to the soundtrack. The result is a sort of visual Chinese whispers in which unexpected visual echoes and poetic possibilities for meaning arise.

On September 13th this video work will be released on Daata Editions and simultaneously exhibited at the Freud Museum for the duration of Toby Ziegler’s exhibition The Genesis Speech 13 September – 26 November 2017. Private View: Thursday 14 September 6.30 – 8.30pm. Toby Ziegler In Conversation with Darian Leader: Tuesday 03 October, 5.30 – 6.30 pm.

Toby Ziegler (born 1972) lives and works in London, UK. After completing B.F.A. (Hons) at Central St. Martin’s School of Art, London, Ziegler completed a residency at Delfina Studios, London (2004-2006). He has since staged solo exhibitions at Chisenhale Gallery, London (2005), Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield (2007), Parkhaus, Dusseldorf (2008), Zabludowicz Collection, London (2010), Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki (2012), Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield (2014), PKM Gallery, Seoul, Korea (2015), and has worked in group exhibitions across the US, Europe and Asia.

Daata is excited to release Jeremy Couillard’s new commissioned artwork ‘Suite for Absynth in D minus USB 1008’. Curated by yours, mine & ours gallery, and available for purchase on Daata Editions from Sept 7.

The release coincides with Daata Editions at PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai (Sept 7), EXPO CHICAGO (Sept 13) and then a dedicated screening evening on Sept 18 at Ludlow House NYC featuring the artwork, along with Jeremy Couillard, Patton Hindle and David Gryn in conversation.

‘Suite for Absynth in D minus USB 1008’: Titles and digitally altered music from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 2 in D minor BWV 1008 form the backdrop for each environment where a rat duck man named Uncle Sad Bedroom travels through fantastical video game versions of different moons in our solar system trying to find his place.

TRAILER

Through the lens of colorful futuristic and fantastical environments, Couillard’s work often exposes the disconnect between the modern lived life and the desire for greater meaning and understanding—be it spiritual or sentimental. In Suite for Absynth in Minus USB 1008, the viewer follows Uncle Sad Bedroom on his journey through video game versions of different moons in our solar system. As with much of Couillard’s work there is an empathy as Uncle Sad Bedroom tries to navigate his place in these moons. Set to the music of digitally altered Bach’s Cello Suite No. 2 in D minor, the six videos take the viewer through imagined worlds of forests and urban environments—all with visual queues to our current landscape—text about a trip to Oyster Bay, a futuristic MTA bus sign, or a tai chi studio.

Jeremy Couillard, (b. 1980, Livonia, MI) lives and works in New York City. He graduated in 2012 from Columbia University with an MFA in painting. Couillard has exhibited internationally including The Rotterdam Film Festival, Rotterdam, Netherlands; Trafo, Szczecin, Poland; the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center with Ben Hall, New York, NY; Art Los Angeles Contemporary, Los Angeles, CA (solo); Zhulong Gallery, Dallas, TX (solo) and Louis B. James, New York, NY (solo).

He recently completed a virtual reality video presented by the New Museum and Rhizome and an installation built around his video game Alien Afterlife at yours mine & ours gallery in New York, NY. Couillard’s work has been written about in VICE, Hyperallergic, The New York Times, Blouin Art Info, Art in America and more. He was also recently awarded a 2017 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship in Digital Media. Couillard has been Assistant Professor of New Media at LaGuardia Community College in Queens, New York since 2014.

Opened in 2016, yours mine & ours is a contemporary gallery located in Chinatown founded by Courtney Childress, Patton Hindle, and RJ Supa. The gallery selected Jeremy Couillard to be commissioned by Daata Editions to create a series of 6 narrative video works. 

EXPO Sound at EXPO CHICAGO curated by Daata Editions

EXPO CHICAGO partners with Daata Editions and Navy Pier to present the inaugural EXPO Sound program (September 13–17, 2017). Curated by Daata Editions, an online platform for the sale of commissioned artist video, sound and web art editions, launching new artworks by selected international artists—the program featuring artists: Larry Achiampong, Tracey Emin, Leo Gabin, Rashaad Newsome and Hannah Perry, will be complemented by works from artists represented by EXPO CHICAGO 2017 Exhibitors.

“Artist sound—like artist video, performance and digital work—is being increasingly exhibited due to the dynamic and experiential nature of the medium, paired with its all-encompassing and ephemeral presence,” said Daata Editions Director David Gryn. “The artist as performer, musician and entertainer is ever sought after in our global calendar of art events, but somewhere in all of this is the truth and essence of art making, with the outcome of very real, tangible and brilliant works of art.”

Sound is truly art for everyone. You can try and contain it – but when it is released it purvades our every pore. 

Last year in walking around the Navy Pier – I realised that I couldn’t escape from the piped pop music of Britney Spears through the public speaker system, which for the area of a food mall makes sense, but for the path leading to an art fair – not so much sense. So I mention this, in my incredulity, to Fair director Tony Karman and he simply responds “why don’t you curate Sound for 2017 ?”

So this year EXPO Sound is born, playing artist sound works primarily from Daata Editions commissioned artists as well as selected works from Expo Chicago gallery submissions. 

The program will be installed throughout the public speaker system at Navy Pier—along the South Dock, within the exposition entrance, and on the /Dialogues Stage.

2017 EXPO Sound Artists:
Larry Achiampong | Daata Editions
Tracey Emin | Daata Editions
Leo Gabin | Daata Editions
Jared Madere | David Lewis Gallery, New York
Rashaad Newsome | Daata Editions
Hannah Perry | Daata Editions

Join curator David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions (www.daata-editions.com) for an exclusive guided tour of the inaugural program of EXPO Sound. Launching new artworks by select international artists, the program will be complemented by artists represented by EXPO CHICAGO 2017 Exhibitors, installed throughout the public speaker system at Navy Pier.

Daata Editions features Artist Sound at Soho House Chicago with Scott Reeder, David Gryn and Amanda Schmitt in conversation (Sept 12) and launching a new sound project on Daata, A-V curated by Amanda Schmitt featuring new sound works by Maria Antelman, Alexandra Drewchin, FlucT, Marina Rosenfeld.
