Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska in Baden-Baden

The exhibition Chapel (we are all in this alone), presenting works by two Macedonian artists Hristina Ivanoska and Yane Calovski, communicates the idea of belief as contemporary socio-political anomaly.

For the exhibition space 45cbm of the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden the two artists developed a new collaborative work–a wall drawing that restages the architecture of "St. Gjorgji", a 12th century church in the village of Kurbinovo, Macedonia, executed in proportion 1:10. The installation also incorporates individual text-based drawings and objects. The works reflect the confrontation with ones political, social and spiritual self and are inspired by the writings of Simone Weil, Luce Irigaray and Paul Thek.

Opening: Friday, September 5, 7 pm
Welcoming speech: Johan Holten, Introduction: Ksenija Čočkova
Exhibition: September 6 – October 17, 2014

Marlena Kudlicka in Lodz

Marlena Kudlicka developed the concept of the exhibition’s spatial arrangement for Changing the Field of View. Modern Printing and Avant-garde at Museum of Modern Art in Łódź.

Kudlicka refers in a divided dot to the concept of Point in order to accurately define the geometry of space, its divisions into units and components. The spatial arrangement of this exhibition is a continuation of her previous project entitled Protocol of errors on.e, where the Point functions as an error dividing the word.

The exhibition will present prints designed by such artists as Hans Arp, Herbert Bayer, Henryk Berlewi, Janusz Maria Brzeski, Cassandre, Tytus Czyżewski, Robert Delaunay, Sonia Delaunay, Fortunato Depero, Theo Van Doesburg, John Heartfield, Karol Hiller, Fernand Léger, El Lissitzky, FilippoTommaso.

DOMINIK LEJMAN'S NEW BOOK - PAINTING WITH TIMECODE

In his first book, Dominik Lejman pays particular attention to architecture and spaces as well as to the question of how they influence or even determine people’s patterns of movement. The structures that the Polish artist uncovers in the process and presents in his installations are extremely fragile, often last only for several moments, cause the limits of space to blur, and in part directly involve the viewer. 

Painting with Timecode
 includes texts written by Doris von Drathen, Timothy Persons and Anda Rottenberg, who provide a thorough overview and analyses of Lejman's unique artistic style.

The book will be published in English by Hatje Cantz and will be available to purchase in June 2014. The artist will also present a new website in addition to the book.  

With the kind support of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw. 

ŻAK | BRANICKA LOOP BARCELONA 2014

Stanisław Dróżdż in Wroclaw

Stanisław Dróżdż archive works will be shown in a solo presentation entitled Ideas at Contemporary Museum in Wroclaw.


The sketches shown in MWW look nothing like Stanisław Dróżdż’s works as we know them. For this reason one of the first associations that springs to mind while looking at them is the connection between the artist’s notation and the finished works.
 When confronted with the dynamism of handwriting in the sketches, the systematised and schematic compositions of the concept-shapes may seem like static structures following rules imposed by order.

Hubert Czerepok and Agnieszka Polska in Sydney

Hubert Czerepok's neon work Madness is Like Gravity and Agnieszka Polska's video works The Forgetting of Proper Names, How the Work is Done, and Hair will be presented at the 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire.

Furthermore, working with local school groups, for the 19th Biennale of Sydney, Hubert Czerepok will encourage the children of Sydney to take part in a peaceful protest; marching through Martin Place in support of freedom and frivolity.

You Imagine What You Desire is an evocation celebrating the artistic imagination as a spirited describing and exploration of the world through metaphor and poesis. It makes enquiries into contemporary aesthetic experience, and relates this to historical precedents and future opportunities to imagine possible worlds. It seeks to understand the need artists have today to create immersive and expanded environments, and locates this activity as part of an art historical trajectory, and as a pursuit into the issues of human consciousness, and their psychological, cognitive and corporeal imperatives.

Curator: Juliana Engberg

Opening: March 18 – 20, 2014

Exhibition: March 21 - June 9, 2014

Location:

The Biennale of Sydney is an eagerly anticipated event and the 19th edition will take place in a number of venues located throughout the city.

AGNIESZKA POLSKA IN BERGEN

Agnieszka Polskas video How the Work is Done will be shown at the Hordaland Kunstsenter as a part of the group exhibition The Structure and Properties of Matter. The exhibition questions what methods we make use of to comprehend history and puts its emphasis on images and materials, rather than on historical documents, as academic history research does.

How the Work is Done by Polska is a visual re-narration of an incident at the Art Academy in Kraków in 1956. The chronology of events is not presented with a rigid relation between the images’ time and space. The film rather opens up for the presence and magical contribution of materials.

Further participating artists: Dominique Hurth, Jonas Ib F. H. Jensen, Ferdinand Krag, Learning Film Group (Ilya Budraitskis, Nikolay Oleynikov, Yevgeny Fiks, David Riff), Signe Lidén

Curators: Frans Jacobi and Åse Løvgren

MARLENA KUDLICKA IN BERLIN

The OR Gallery Berlin shows works from Marlena Kudlicka's series Protocol of errors on.e. This series was made for ŻAK|BRANICKA's booth at ARCO Madrid Art Fair 2014. Protocol of errors on.e is a project about errors, which occur in language, statistics and logic. Kudlicka is interested in the term and the function that the protocol itself carries, as well as its references as a code of proper conduct. The collected register, which evokes a notion of error, is the starting point for a project that contains sculptures, collages, and drawings. The artist wonders where errors originate. She is interested in the technological mechanisms (machines) and mental mechanisms behind language errors.

MICHAŁ JANKOWSKI IN ZIELONA GÓRA

Michał Jankowski's works will be shown in a solo show entitled Tłuszcz (Fat) at the gallery of the Museum Ziemi Lubuskiej in Zielona Góra.

The artist's main intention in Tłuszcz is to provide pornography with a new meaning. In his works, Jankowski turns reality into something completely abstract and, in doing so, strives to turn his subject matter into something more interesting. Jankowski considers pornography to be uninteresting precisely because it reveals too much. Jankowski reconstructs the pornographic images he uses so that they become less literal, less obvious and, subsequently, more attractive. 

Curator: Leszek Kania

SZYMON KOBYLARZ IN LINZ

Szymon Kobylarz's work is part of the exhibition Slapstick! at LENTOS Kunstmuseum Linz. 
 
The exhibition examines the development and characteristics of slapstick from early silent films until contemporary art. Works of contemporary artists are presented in combination with selected key sequences from famous silent movie classics by Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd or Laurel & Hardy. 
 
The works centre around failure, in very different and individual ways, with humour and also with dignity. The celebration of failure is imbued with a special charm against the background of today's society of perfectionism and high achievement.  
 
Exhibition: February 28, 2014 - May 25, 2014

Stanisław Dróżdż and Marlena Kudlicka at ARCO

Marlena Kudlicka, Protocol of errors on.e (02), 2014, collage, 42 x 30 cm

Protocol of errors on.e
project constitutes a protocol structure, collecting and categorising the different meanings of error found in language, statistics, and logic. Marlena Kudlicka is interested in the term and the function that the protocol itself carries, as well as its references as a code of proper conduct. The collected register, which evokes a notion of error, is the starting point for a project that contains sculptures, collages, and drawings. The artist wonders where errors originate. She is interested in the technological mechanisms (machines) and mental mechanisms behind language errors. The artist includes printing machines in these technological mechanisms - old linotypes, in which printing errors often occurred. Another source of inspiration for Kudlicka is the Constructivist prints of such artists as Władysław Strzemiński, Henryk Berlewi, Jan Tschichold, and El Lissitzky.

Protocol of errors on.e series was specially made for the Arco Fair in Madrid, where Kudlicka’s work was shown alongside one of the classics of Polish concrete poetry, Stanisław Dróżdż. Kudlicka’ssculptures entered a dialogue with Dróżdż’s Forgetting of 1967.

What links them is, above all, an analysis of language. The meeting of these two artists: the late Dróżdż, whose most important pieces were created in the 1960s and 1970s, and the young sculptress, who draws from the avant-garde of the 20th century, was a meeting of opposites: Dróżdż sought precision and faultless solutions, while Kudlicka is inspired by errors. We might also say that Kudlicka’s work literally begins where Dróżdż’s leaves off—at the period. The period is the main component of Kudlicka’s sculptures. The period appears as a glass circle that we might associate, for instance, with a magnifying glass for finding errors (there is such a popular function in mobile phones, for instance). The period is also a key symbol in the on.e collage series, which came about through an accidental error in writing the word “one”. Here the period is an error, a place where a short circuit transpires, stopping or interrupting a process.

Agnieszka Polska in Mulhouse

Agnieszka Polska’s works are included in the exhibition The Night of the Great Season at La Kunsthalle Mulhouse, which focuses on Polish neo-surrealism, tracing the historical influence of art, theatre and literature in this little known artistic movement.

The exhibition aims to question a tendency observed in the early 2000s among a generation of young Polish artists influenced by surrealist techniques from the 20th Century, while simultaneously placing themselves in opposition to previous generations of Polish artists, such as those of critical art and realism from the 1990s.

Further participating artists:
Bruno Schulz, Tadeusz Kantor, Erna Rosenstein, Alina Szapocznikow, Jakub Julian Ziółkowski and Tomasz Kowalski.

Joanna Rajkowska in Brasília

The project All-Seeing Eye by Joanna Rajkowska was conceived especially for the Museu Nacional Conjunto Cultural da República in Brasilia. It is an ephemeral intervention on the protected UNESCO building, which was designed and built in the frame of the general plan of the Brazilian capital.

The project stems from the personal experience of the artist, whose daughter was born with eye cancer. The sequence of images used in the projection shows the breakdown of the tumour inside the eyeball. Rajkowska reveals what is invisible, diseased, rejected, but shows also the difficult process of fighting the disease. Her work is a reflection on recognizing the world in conditions of limited sight, as well as on the biological and political function of seeing.

Agnieszka Polska in Paris

Agnieszka Polska's work is part of the exhibition The Black Moon at Palais de Tokyo.

The Black Moon is a 'film-exhibition' that presents an encounter between a man and a woman visiting an exhibition. Meanings suggested by the juxtaposition of works by diverse artists are meant to suggest a narrative. Thus the story of this relationship unfolds around the works, playing with love, art and life. While one searches only for a fleeting tryst, the other aspires to finding true love.

Curated by Sinziana Ravini.

Further participating artists: Boris Achour, John Bock, Talia Chetrit, Sophie Dubosc, Latifa Echakhch, Carl Johan Högberg, Pierre Huyghe, Julien Langendorff , Joanna Lombard, Ursula Mayer, Melvin Moti, Isabel Nolan, Ylva Olgand, Erik Pirolt, Émilie Pitoiset, Agnieszka Polska, Hans Rosenström, Martin Soto Climent, Linda Tedsdotter.

Joanna Rajkowska in London

Joanna Rajkowska's work is part of the exhibition A Tourist In Other People's Reality at Vestry House Museum.

Further participating artists:
Cecilia Bonilla and Sława Harasymowicz

Using the archives as a point of departure, the artists reflect on the possibility of unearthing the invisible, the missing and the fragmented from within the narrative of the location. The exhibition both attempts and wilfully fails to represent the 'true' history of the location through creating openings towards the fictional. The expectation and desire for the material trace of a human being is set against the physical emptiness of what is left. With this premise in mind, the exhibition stages a spectacle of frustration and coercion.

Olga Ovenden

Yane Calovski in Bregenz

Yane Calovski is participating in On the Move at the European Kunsthalle, KUB Arena, Bregenz.

Project-based, performative, on the move—is a possible description of the European Kunsthalle’s program. In the exhibition On the Move. European Kunsthalle at the KUB Arena it is precisely these aspects of performativity, of the appearance and disappearance of temporary artistic and institutional spaces, that are being focused on and raised for discussion. Drawing on elements of past European Kunsthalle activities, on staging strategies and general questions around cultural, social, and institutional spaces, the participating artists developed a wealth of ways of looking at the principle of "eventfulness" and its implications.

After examining archive materials, the Macedonian artist suggests a subjective reading of the European Kunsthalle’s history in the drawings he developed for the exhibition.

Further participating artists:

David Maljkovic, Dorit Margreiter, Nick Mauss, Charlotte Moth, Stephen Willats, Johannes Wohnseifer

Curated by Vanessa Joan Müller & Astrid Wege (European Kunsthalle) and Eva Birkenstock & Yilmaz Dziewior (Kunsthaus Bregenz).

Vlatka Horvat in Budapest

Vlatka Horvat's works Anatomies and Topographies are part of the exhibition Paperboats at Trapéz Gallery in Budapest.

'The works shown in the exhibition Paperboats reveal and confate formal and mental dichotomies. They express, on the one hand, a drive to come up with an articulate form, a need for an order of (geometric) composition and, on the other hand, feelings of the void appearing under one's feet, of insecurity, alienation and disappearance. It is physical presence or absence (the human body and face, often fragmented or concealed), the relation of body to personality or to its surroundings that is being interpreted in various ways; next to the objectifed (rearranged, recomposed, scrutinized) human fgures, the presented objects and landscapes gain an anthropomorph reading.'

Further participating artists: Sári Ember, Csilla Klenyászki, and Andreas Werner.

Szymon Kobylarz in Bytom

The exhibition Sztuka dla sztuki [Art for art's sake] consists of several dozen works by the artist Szymon Kobylarz. The works are watercolors from the years 2012 and 2013; painted as hypothetical, dreamed up shows (utopian, impossible, probable, nonsensical). The artist put on canvas not only his visions but as well the exhibition ideas proposed by the curator; planned for the next year and a half.
The exhibition is some kind of "reality check" of imagination: the artistic fantasy will now have to wait for its actual execution or revocation.

HUBERT CZEREPOK - History and Utopia

Hubert Czerepok's works will be shown in a solo show entitled History and Utopia at Arsenal Gallery in Białystok.

At the core of Czerepoks oeuvre are the connections between fiction, topicality and historical events. It is not the facts themselves that interest the artist, but rather the way they begin with shifts, mutations, and unimaginable formal and semantic transformations. Shown are drawings, installations, video and neon works.

Vlatka Horvat at CAMERA AUSTRIA

Vlatka Horvat's work is part of the exhibition Zero Point of Meaning. Non-functional, Non-representational, Elementary, Experimental and Conceptual Photography in Croatia at Camera Austria.

Further participating artists:

Boris Cvjetanović, Petar Dabac, Sandro Đukić, Igor Eškinja, Ivan Faktor, Tomislav Gotovac, Boris Greiner, Miljenko Horvat, Vlatka Horvat, Željko Jerman, David Maljković, Antun Maračić, Enes Midžić, Marijan Molnar, Ivan Posavec, Davor Sanvincenti, Edita Schubert, Mladen Stilinović, Slaven Tolj, Goran Trbuljak, Josip Vaništa, Mirjana Vodopija, and Fedor Vučemilović.

Curated by Sandra Križić Roban and Ivana Hanaček
Assistant: Jelena Pašić
Exhibition design: Ana Dana Beroš

The exhibition Zero Point of Meaning seeks to explore photography as an experimental and research medium. Artists who have reached for a camera at a particular point in their artistic career (or instructed others to shoot something particular, or simply took over – appropriated – other people’s photographs) were not interested in the technical capacities of the medium or even the quality of their shots; instead, they considered photography as a sort of coordinate that functioned like an echo of some event or absent artwork, like a channel communicating the conceptualization or realization of a particular artistic idea. All this testifies to important changes in the way photography was understood and interpreted as art, all of which was influenced by the political and social circumstances from the 60s onwards.

Exhibition: March 9 – May 26, 2013

Tim Etchells & Vlatka Horvat in Bremen

The video work by Tim Etchells & Vlatka Horvat is part of the group exhibition Sweet Bitter Symphony at Künstlerhaus Bremen.

"Weather sweet pain, eloquent silence, or lovehate, all are linked by one factor: the inherent contradiction contained in these antithetical or mutually exclusive notions. As a rhetorical device such contrariness is known as an oxymoron, while in the fine arts it has always been utilised as a stylistic ploy. The oxymoron is predestined to denote ambiguous, multi-layered content, which it imparts in an incisive and gripping manner. The manifestation of “sweet pain” was at its most popular during the Baroque era, and its effects can still be felt today, for this conflicting conceptual coupling still features in many contemporary art works. One reason, perhaps, being that both suffering and enjoyment are enormously powerful physical and psychological sensual perceptions. They make such a huge impression that merely looking at a work of art interpreting individual pain can totally captivate the viewer, who is swept along and carried away by the intentionally direct impact. In that respect there is no difference between the Baroque ideal and that of the contemporary artist.
Sweet Bitter Symphony
brings together video works by major contemporary artists. It considers pain as one of the most intense and yet most polyvalent human emotions. Although it can be experienced as an oppressive burden, as a cry for help from the body or mind, the feeling of pain is not necessarily negatively tinged. These works of art present pain in all its diversity: its beauty, its attractiveness, its romantic or liberating nature." (Source: press material)

Katarzyna Kozyra at VIDEO ROOM

Katarzyna Kozyra is presenting her new video work Looking for Jesus at the VIDEO ROOM of the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw.

The starting point for Katarzyna Kozyra was the so-called Jerusalem syndrome - an acute delusional disorder, being first clinically described in the second half of the twentieth century, where people identify themselves with biblical characters, and mostly with the Messiah. In the Spring of 2012 the artist went with her film crew to Jerusalem to find "Jesus". The main questions that she asks herself and the society are: What are the mechanisms that shape our beliefs and faith? How do we perceive reality and how do we build its view? Isn’t a critical approach and a constant verification of facts, just another kind of intuitive desire to believe in the power of reason?

VIDEO ROOM is a new long term project of the Center of Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, which provides to the audience the best and newest creations of video art. Starting in November of 2012, every second Monday (beginning of 2013 -  every third) in one of the halls of the Ujazdowski Castle, the visitors will be able to view the works of renowned Polish and international video artists.

Paweł Książek at the Polish Institute Berlin

In his paintings Paweł Książek connects different topics, creates associative references and defines new artistic space between painting, sculpture and video art. In his most recent works Książek plays with perception – using painting as a medium he first emphasizes and secondly blurs the difference between fiction and reality. He concentrates on hands as a subject and the power they possess, regardless of whether they are the hands of an artist, a pianist or a murderer.

Paweł Książek at Künstlerhaus Bethanien

Paweł Książek's work is part of the exhibition FLYING at Künstlerhaus Bethanien.

Flying by plane is ruining the environment. Every flight that can possibly be avoided, should be, as it helps the environment. More than 60 artists were asked to "put wings" to their ideas for the exhibition FLYING, among them many former fellowship holders at Künstlerhaus Bethanien. There was no prescribed minimum altitude. The emerging group of works are correspondingly free – despite staying in the field of painting. The exhibition arises from the yet to be released book project Flying by Stefanie Steudemann and Peter Glückstein of ‘2und50’ in which 52 artists and 52 authors explore the subject.

Opening: November 8, 2012, 7-10 pm

Joanna Rajkowska at Lodz Design Festival

Joanna Rajkowska's work is part of the exhibition Attendance Obligatory? Few Tales about Participation
at Łódź Design Festival.

The exhibition presents artistic and research projects that have a social movement character in that they call for the active participation of the audience. The projects uncover the problems of both the participants and the authors during the process of their realization. The situation in which the project is realized (or not realized) is a diagnosis of the condition of society, showing society’s needs and the changes occurring within it. It speaks of openness and accountability for oneself, others and a shared space.

Burgstrasse 27

Sumpfstadt [Swamp Town]—the phantasmagoric proposal by Polish artist Joanna Rajkowska of the raising (though in this case it might be better to use the verb ‚lowering‘) of a monument, which would not in fact add new objects to the existing urban body, but rather remove unnecessary elements. Sumpfstadt is the latest of Rajkowska‘s ‘impossible monuments‘, which grapples with the issues of amnesia, language and rituals of memory, as well as the physicality of the city, its growth and erosion.

Documentary Workshop with Hubert Czerepok

The controversial book "The Kindly Ones" (Les Bienveillantes) by Jonathan Littell and its protagonist Maximilian Aue, a Nazi and a homosexual who has lived some time in Berlin, forms the core of this documentary workshop. The workshop participants will receive selected scenes from the book in the form of an audio track and will search for traces of Maximilian.

Michał Jankowski and Robert Kuśmirowski in Berlin

Alfred Jarry, an eccentric member of the Parisian Boheme, staged a play Ubu Rex in 1896. The play draws on absurdity and is a farce against modern men—a vulgar boor sitting down with his rump on history. 
The exhibition Naughty Children of Alfred Jarry pays a unique homage to Jarry by presenting historicity plunged in absurdity and eeriness, where both the tradition and the history are shown in a grotesque mirror.

Further participating artists: Jan Dziaczkowski, Tomasz Kozak, Dorota Kozieradzka, Michał Szuszkiewicz.

VLATKA HORVAT IN BERGEN

In an exhibition entitled AS OPPOSED TO THE FRONT, BACK, TOP AND BOTTOM, Bergen Kunsthall is showing recent works by Vlatka Horvat.


For the exhibition in NO.5 Horvat will be showing a major installation, as well as several new series of works on paper. Thematically, she has focused her exploration around the concepts of ‘the edge’ and ‘the centre’ as both spatial/physical and conceptual phenomena. Inherent in this is the idea that edges connote boundaries and limitations, whether in physical conditions like place and space, or in social relations in the form of normative expectations of interpersonal behaviour. Horvat’s work has its roots in the performing arts, and in her expression she may refer to both early performance art and Arte Povera from the 1960s and 1970s.

Opening: Friday 21 January at 8 pm

Exhibition: 21/01/2011 - 20/02/2011

CASTING Katarzyna Kozyra

Katarzyna Kozyra is looking for performers

Katarzyna Kozyra is currently preparing an autobiographical feature film and is looking for people to perform her character in this future movie about herself. Within her solo show CASTING at Zacheta National Gallery of Art there will be a casting room, where visitors can give their own interpretation of Katazyna Kozyra after gaining an overview on her and her work at the exhibition. Aside from works such as Pyramid of AnimalsBathhouse and films from the In Art Dreams Come True cycle there will also be presented archive material and documentary films to give the viewer the opportunity to experience the artist in her wide variety of forms and incarnations; she transforms into a man, a cheerleader, a voyeur, a drag queen or an opera diva amongst others. 


The material from the casting will be on show during the exhibition (with the performer's agreement) as well as build the basis for the artist's selection of the cast and for her reworking of the film's already existing script.

VLATKA HORVAT IN BRISTOL

Under the name of PROJECT SPACE: INVOCATIONS OF THE BLANK PAGE, Spike Island is showing Vlatka Horvat in a group show with Martin Creed, Ryan Gander, Gareth Long, Anna Molska and Ignacio Uriarte.

What is the space that lies between ideas and their eventual articulation as language, actions or objects in the world? How can we define those interim moments of formlessness and effervescence that hover unpredictable and light before tipping into the realm of the real? This exhibition moves between the freefall lightness of thought and the contradictory weight of words as they form on the page. The works included gesture toward or take the form of blank sheets of paper: creased and folded, falling through space, or traversed by the body.

At the heart of the exhibition lies a concern with the elusiveness of meaning, the inadequacy of language and the struggle for creative expression.

 

Exhibition: Jan 21 - April 10, 2011

The exhibition Die kleine Improvistation – polnische Kunst heute, curated by Dorothee Bienert gives an insight on the current polish art scene.
The artists whose works are shown in this exhibition reflect the effects of the political upheaval in the 1990s on the polish society, activate their memories of their childhood and adolescence in a socialist state, question the meaning of architecture for everyday life or deal  in a humoristic way with the void between high standards and improvised reality. Thereby not only personal stories but also a critical view on policy and society realized in a diverse range of media play a key role.

The exhibition is supported by the consulate general of the Republic of Poland in Hamburg and by the ministry for education and culture Schleswig Holstein in the context of Ars Baltica.

PaweŁ KsiĄŻek at ART | BASEL Statements

At Art Basel Statements 2009 ŻAK | BRANICKA will be presenting a solo show with Paweł Książek Silent Utopia.

Please visit our booth: Hall 1, Booth S3
10-14 June 2009

www.artbasel.com


Paweł Książek’s project Silent Utopia is a speculative fantasy regarding the infiltrations and connections between Eastern European modernism in architecture and German silent film of the 1920’s. The Art Basel Statements presentation focuses on Metropolis, the 1925 film by director and architect, Fritz Lang, and the implementations of such prominent architects of the period.
Paweł Książek examines the connections between this architecture and the film and based on these connections, he proposes a hypothetical analogy for the existence of a sensibility common to that era of creators and thinkers. Upon examining both aesthetics, he wonders whether there were visual markers that could have been prognostic of the impending catastrophe.  Książek speculates about how a film could look, and how its content would be altered or maintained, when Czech, Hungarian or Polish architecture replaces the scenography. What would it look like if the film was made in Prague with the Bata Shop building in the background (Ludvik Kysela, Bata Store, Prague 1929), or in Brno in front of Josef Kranz’s 1929 Café Era, using the building’s neon E-R-A sign to light the street on a Metropolis night? In fact, why wasn’t the film shot on Warsaw’s “Ulica Przyszlosci” (“Future Street”) designed by Lech Niemojewski in 1925?
Paweł Książek’s paintings and photomontages function as his tools in effacing the border between document and fiction. By juxtaposing and overlaying these two historical phenomena, connected by a trust in the future and contemporaneously created in different places in Europe, Pawel Książek has built his own fake vision of the past.


Hubert Czerepok: Devil's Island

Hubert Czerepok's solo exhibition Devil's Island opens May 22, 2009 at La Criée - Centre d'Art Contemporain Rennes.

22.05.2009 - 26.07.2009

http://www.criee.org/

At the core of Czerepok`s oeuvre are the connections between fiction, topicality and historical events. It is not the facts themselves that interest the artist, but rather the way they begin with shifts, mutations, and unimaginable formal and semantic transformations.

For Devil’s Island (2009), the video installation on show at La Criée, the artist visited the rocky islet off the coast of Kourou in French Guiana, famed for the penal colony to which many French political prisoners – including Alfred Dreyfus – were condemned. The images he brought back are projected onto a hexagonal sculpture referencing another form of disciplinary power: the Panopticon. Part of a circular prison building, the Panopticon allows full-time surveillance of prisoners without their knowing if they are being watched or not, the result being a sense of invisible omniscience.

The exhibition also includes a series of drawings, Seances, which brings together media images relating to some tragic current event, spiritualist séances or sexual scenes. The initial Seances series retained only a minimal trace of the originals, while the images made for the Rennes exhibition combine areas of flat black with line drawing. Here Czerepok pays tribute to Goya’s Disasters of War engravings and their demonstration of all the atrocious cruelty mankind is capable of. In this new look at glamorised, mass-produced media violence, the artist forces the image back into its genuinely traumatising, critical role.

The Devil’s Island exhibition comprises a highly diverse selection of works that lead us to reflect on different forms of power, the way they are depicted and the impact of this depiction on our lives.

Booth concept: Is Ornament a Crime?

It seems that we fell so deeply in love with Modernism that we have forgotten the seductive power of the Ornament, its antithesis. And maybe it is not concerned with forgetting but rather with a type of shame about the lack of content in the Ornament and the favor, which we sense when we allow a look into this rhythmic slip. But the Ornament, which in the beginnings of Modernism was compromised and even sometimes proscribed as criminal, is today reborn in a new form. We long for the emotion that it arouses, we dream of it and of refreshing this visual delight. Today, Adolf Loos’ excommunication of this is no longer relevant: the Ornament is not a crime. It is rather a passion. The chosen works are arranged such that they are mutually enervated, and so that their visual power – just as that of the Ornament – is also reciprocally supported by its surroundings. The viewer should be physically satisfied, involved in visual bliss: quietly losing focus, they are taken by a dizzying Vertigo. There is sufficient motivation to be freed from the shame of the Ornament. The choice is not an attempt to locate the border between the figurative and abstract. Rather, here we are shown the importance of the blurred transitions and the impossibility of an existence without these supporting inspirations.

Concept

The true fiction / the fictional truth

The exhibition presented at the ŻAK | BRANICKA stand focuses on one side, on how deeply we believe in the fulfillment of those promises of a future that will always remain utopic and on the other hand, on how much we doubt the probability of phenomena, that most likely are real.
We had belived in a future so much, but it proved to be a catastrophy even before it was fully manifested. Everything that Modernism had promised us has remained unfulfilled, and the dream of the splendit future has turned out to be fiction. The topic of the utopia of Modernism is taken up in the work of Szymon Kobylarz in the model of a building that has been built after the L´Unite d´habitation de Marseille of Le Corbusier. This building stands today in the industrial city of Katowice (Poland), while the original no longer exists. In the work, Superjednostka the artist has sentenced the building to destruction.
To the past refers also Krzysztof Zielinski, who has photographed his primary school built in the 60´s. In his works the harshness of the socialistic epoch becomes cozy. Even deeper into the past reaches Pawel Ksiazek as he refers to the exclusive aesthetic of De Stjil, and exposes its affiliations with the visual culture of the Black Metal. These works deal with the way the blending of high culture into mass culture proceeds.
The project of Hubert Czerepok is a classic reenactment of events that took place in the 70´s, in a small village in Poland. Even if we believe in conspiracy theories, we don´t want to believe in the landing of an UFO, even if it could be true.
