FILM COLOGNE: A Goth Life curated by Daata Editions. A special exhibition of artists and artworks from Daata Editions.

Art Cologne, April 26-29, 2017

The FILM COLOGNE section is dedicated to the medium of artists moving image and was introduced at ART COLOGNE three years ago. With the special exhibition “A Goth Life”, this year’s edition of ART COLOGNE will show a compilation from artwork editions curated by and selected from Daata Editions.

A Goth Life is a selection of artist works that compiled together make a composite tale of our joyously soulless, self-reflective, insular, tension and angst ridden times. The use of the internet is our guide, confident, 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. This will play throughout the days of the art fair. A Goth Life is playing each day on a repeated cycle.

Artists in “A Goth Life” include: Larry Achiampong, Thora Dolven Balke, David Blandy, Jake Chapman, Jacky Connolly, Keren Cytter, Casey Jane Ellison, Tracey Emin, Ed Fornieles, Leo Gabin, Yung Jake, Rachel Maclean, Jillian Mayer, Takeshi Murata, Rashaad Newsome, Tameka Norris, Hannah Perry, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Scott Reeder, Jacolby Satterwhite, Zadie Xa.

Features from artists on Daata Editions:  Sue de Beer, David Blandy/Larry Achiampong, Jacky Connolly, Matt Copson, Keren Cytter, Casey Jane Ellison, Leo Gabin, Rachel Maclean, Jillian Mayer & Lucas Leyva, Takeshi Murata & Robert Beatty, Hannah Perry, Scott Reeder, John Skoog, Chloe Wise, Zadie Xa.

Daata Editions will also feature NAUSEA – A VR Exhibition by Metaphysics featuring artists: Eddie Peake, Florian Meisenberg, Anne de Vries, Rubén Grilo, Jack Strange and Anna K.E. www.metaphysicsvr.com

Jacky Connolly, Anhedonia, 2017 (a New Daata Editions Artist Commission)
In Anhedonia (2017), a machinima film in six parts, Jacky Connolly turns her filmmaking practice towards a mysterious group home in the virtual American South. Several avatars live in three small buildings near the town’s railroad yard, where their lives are punctuated by hours spent in front of a screen. Images from elsewhere begin to intrude with mounting intensity, as the boundaries of the film are fractured by the characters’ visual and auditory hallucinations. These moments of psychosis give insight into the characters’ shared histories, as well as the dissociative atmosphere of their cultural landscape.

Jacky Connolly (b. 1990, Lower Hudson Valley, USA) is an artist and filmmaker based in New York. Connolly’s film works are indebted to cinematic and literary genre influences, as well as an innovative use of machinima technique for imaginative world-making and storytelling. She recently completed Hudson Valley Ruins (2016), a 30-minute machinima film created in a life simulation computer game.

Jacky Connolly’s commissioned artworks for Daata can be viewed and acquired online. There are 6 works available in chapters: 1. Anhedonia, 2. Anemia, 3. Alexithymia, 4. Amygdala, 5. Anorexia, 6. Amnesia, each in an edition of 26, of which 20 are for sale. An additional composite feature version (screened daily at NADA) is available for art Institutional acquisition and international film screenings. http://daata-editions.com

Chrissie Iles will be in conversation with Jacky Connolly on Saturday March 4 at 3pm in the NADA New York auditorium space, introduced by David Gryn of Daata Editions. Chrissie Iles is the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and her recent curatorial exhibition was “Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016”. http://whitney.org/

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is the definitive non-profit arts organization dedicated to the cultivation, support, and advancement of new voices in contemporary art. Daata Editions is collaborating with NADA as a Cultural Partner. https://www.newartdealers.org/

Juju’s Presents: Festive Cultural Traffic

Saturday & Sunday 17-18th December 2016

11am – 8pm Free Entry

Juju’s Bar & Stage

The Old Truman Brewery

London, E1 6QR

Cultural Traffic returns to the Truman Brewery and adjacent Spitalfields Market over the last shopping weekend before Christmas 17-18th December

Festive Cultural Traffic will be offering a broad vivid experience away from the dull predictable mainstream Christmas shopping options. An opportunity to engage with the past present and future of counter culture at an affordable level for that perfect gift.

Cultural Traffic the UK fair for dealers in counter culture, giving independent producers the opportunity to trade books, zines, prints, catalogues, vinyls and tapes in both current and obsolete format.

By bringing together pioneering contemporary publishing with vintage counter culture and out-of-print material, Cultural Traffic paves an express connection between yesterdays cultural artefacts and the latent collectables of tomorrow.

Free and open to all, Cultural Traffic offers the public an opportunity to engage in the past, present, and future of counter culture at an affordable level. And offers vendors the opportunity to capitalise on the amplified busy climate of the last shopping weekend before Christmas.

Cultural Traffic was launched by editor, designer and collector Toby Mott who says: “Cultural Traffic is a fascinating window into the flourishing post-digital zine scene” Mott’s expansive collection of punk ephemera, The Mott Collection has been exhibited widely and his most recent publications are: Oh So Pretty: Punk in Print 1976-80, Phaidon. Showboat: Punk/Sex/Bodies, Dashwood Books and Skinhead: An Archive, Ditto Press.

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.”

Film & Sound at Art Basel in Miami Beach 2016

Soundscape Park, New World Symphony Center, Miami Beach

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.

More info from the Art Basel Press Release:

Film: Art Basel announces details of its 2016 Film program in Miami Beach.

From November 30 through December 4, 2016, Art Basel will present a premier program of over 50 film and video works by some of today’s most exciting artists from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

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.

ALL THE COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW

by POSTmatter Editors | September 7, 2016

A CONVERSATION WITH SAYA WOOLFALK ON CULTURAL MIXES, UTOPIA AND HER NEW COLLABORATION WITH DAATA EDITIONS AND POSTMATTER. “I AM DEEPLY INTERESTED IN PLAY AND THE POSSIBILITIES THAT EMERGE THROUGH PROCESSES AND I TRY TO BRING TOGETHER THINGS THAT MAY NOT GENERALLY BE FUSED TOGETHER”

Saya Woolfalk is a New York-based, Japanese-born interdisciplinary artist. Using science fiction, fantasy, anthropology and semiotics, she explores the alternative utopian possibilities of identity. Melding dance, video, animation and sculpture in a number of ongoing projects, she offers fantastical narratives of cultural hybridity to expand traditional visions of the present and ideas of the future.
In a recent public performance piece that took over New York’s Fulton Centre, she paired performance with interactive app technology to offer passers by a glimpse into her kaleidoscopic imagination. It is one in a series of pieces that builds the story of the Empathics, a fictional race of women who Woolfalk is writing as unbound by the limits of genetics.
In collaboration with Daata Editions, we preview one artwork from Woolfalk’s upcoming 2016 series Color Mixing Machine. In it, she continues to build the story of the Empathics through ritualistic digital creations that reimagine what it means to be human. The full set of artworks will run in POSTmatter from 29th September, and are available to buy on Daata Editions, an innovative digital platform representing contemporary moving image and sound artists. Our preview and interview with Woolfalk is presented in association with WeTransfer.

PM: What is the mission of your fictional future female species, the Emphatics, and the space they inhabit, ‘No Place’?
SW: ‘No Place’ is a project I worked on from 2006 to 2008 with filmmaker and anthropologist Rachel Lears. The No Placeans are plant humans from the future who change gender and colour, transform into the landscape when they die, and repurpose refuse into usable technologies. The Empathics are people in the present who establish something called the Institute of Empathy (IoE) to study No Place. The IoE encounters a grouping of No Placean bones and fungus on the bones stimulates their physiological mutation and cultural transformation. This mutation allows the Empathics to easily cross species by integrating foreign genetic material into their DNA.

PM: From performance to digital to textile, your art practice includes a comprehensive range of materials, forms and processes. What is your process for developing new multimedia pieces?
SW: I usually start with an idea, which changes as I make the physical work. I create drawings, mock-ups and digital renderings and then create physical prototypes. Both the mock ups and prototypes are edited as I go along. Many are discarded or stored as parts for future projects. I constantly move through multiple media and I work simultaneously in many.

PM: What is it about the history of craft as a practice that appeals to you and how do you see it as remaining prominent in a time when analogue methods are being outpaced by automation?
SW: I was taught by feminists at Brown University, and the work done at Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro’s Womanhouse was incredibly influential for me when I began making my own work. The students who created that project reimagined and reconstructed a home to integrate alternative logics into its structure. Their use of craft based practices to transform the domestic appealed to me as a kitchen table way of making art that could address larger social issues.
I also use many digitally methods to produce work. I have created augmented reality garments, digital video and animation, as well as vinyl wall papers printed from vectorised files. However, I try to maintain a relationship to the handmade by using original hand-printed artworks and collages as the raw material for the creation of the work.

PM: Can you discuss the notions of hybridity that feature in your work?
SW: I am deeply interested in play and the possibilities that emerge through processes and I try to bring together things that may not generally be fused together. When I started working on the Empathics project, I was inspired by the dual notion of a chimera. A chimera is both an imaginary female monster with disparate parts, and a scientific term for a genetic organism composed of two or more genetically distinct tissues—for example, partly male and partly female. This is one of my entry points into thinking about hybridity.

PM: What is your personal relationship with religion and spirituality, and how has it influenced your work?
SW: Many of the forms I use evoke the religious and spiritual. I do this to set a tone for my audience, so they have a sense that they are entering a state of liminality. My own life is relatively secular, although I was raised Catholic on my father’s side and Buddhist on my mother’s.

PM: It feels as if you are envisioning a model for a future that prioritises indigenous belief-systems, the female, digital innovation and harmony. This stands out as optimistic at a time when futuristic visions are so often grey, mechanic and dystopian. Is your commitment to a sense of joy, communion and hope a deliberate choice or natural occurrence for you when making work?
SW: The Empathics were conceptualised as a group of humans who became incredibly receptive to the introduction of foreign genetic material. I wanted to explore how morphology and culture are mutable through contact and creolisation. As I make work, I explore narratives that offer my audience a sense that there may be positive solutions for our often-dystopian visions of the future. I would say that yes, I make a deliberate choice to offer a sense of hope.

This interview is published in partnership with WeTransfer, as part of our series exploring the creatives who push the boundaries between digital and physical space in new and surprising ways. See Saya Woolfalk’s work custom moving image piece on WeTransfer here.
The six works from ‘Color Mixing Machine’ are now Online at Daata Editions, in association with POSTmatter, and are now available to buy online. Daata will be exhibiting a specially created artwork by Saya as part of the project at Expo Chicago, in conjunction with this POSTmatter and Daata Editions collaboration.
