JULIA PEIRONE IN ARTICLE ABOUT GALLERY WEEKEND BERLIN 26 – 28 APRIL

“– ein Wochenende in Berlins Galerien

Am letzten Aprilwochenende standen nicht nur die Türen der 45 offiziell am Gallery Weekend Berlin teilnehmenden Galerien offen – auch abseits der Stadtkarte des Events gab es einiges zu entdecken. Galerien wie beispielsweise jene von Tanja Wagner und Dorothée Nilsson boten hierbei eine gute Alternative zu dem vornehmlich von männlichen Positionen dominierten Programm des Rundgangs.” […]

“Die Identitätssuche junger Teenager ist auch in der Ausstellung Girls – A Female Gaze in der Dorothée Nilsson Gallery Thema. Die Künstlerin Julia Peirone (*1973 in Argentinien) untersucht in ihren Arbeiten den Umgang junger Frauen mit den vorherrschenden Schönheitsidealen und konzentriert sich hierbei insbesondere auf Gefühle wie Scham und Verwundbarkeit. Das Video Twisted Cherry entstand während eines Castingverfahrens und hält kleine Gesten jugendlicher Unsicherheit fest: In dem Versuch, die eigene Haut um einen Zentimeter mehr zu bedecken, wird ein knappes Röckchen zurechtgezupft, Hände werden nervös geknetet und das Tragen der Highheels gerät zu einem Balanceakt, der die Mädchen immer wieder in die Knie zwingt. Wiederholtes Aufstehen und Hinfallen bis die Mädchen sich entscheiden, die hochhakigen Schuhe auszuziehen. Ein kleiner, in diesem Moment doch entscheidender Akt, der Ruhe in die aufgeregten Körper der jungen Frauen einkehren lässt. Ohne die Abgebildeten bloßzustellen oder sie einem voyeuristischen Blick auszusetzen, verdeutlichen Peirones Arbeiten die Anstrengung der Protagonistinnen, sich zwischen den medial angebotenen Repräsentationen, den gesellschaftlichen Zuschreibungen und dem selbst definiertem Bild zurechtzufinden.”

INKA AND NICLAS AND JULIA PEIRONE IN GÖTEBORGS KONSTMUSEUM: THE WORLD AROUND YOU

In The World around You: Contemporary Art from the Collection, Gothenburg Museum of Art presents an exhibition in which the art of the 1970s meets the art of our time. It comprises around forty works that relate to their time in different ways – embracing or criticizing it, challenging it and making its presence known, or by turning away from it. In one way or another, art always reflects the time and society it was created in. It can help us understand both the past and the surrounding world.

INKA AND NICLAS IN GROUP EXHIBITION | SCULPTURAL LANDSCAPES AT BODØ, NORWAY

MARCH 13 – 31

AT GALLERI NOUA, BODØ, NORWAY
http://www.noua.no/en/events/sculptural-landscape

Artists:
Miriam Nielsen (DK)
Inka and Niclas (FI)
Adam Jeppesen (DK)
Marianne Bjørnmyr (NO)

The exhibition is curated by Trine Stephensen / Plantation Journal.

Sculptural Landscapes presents the work of a range of Scandinavian artists with a common interest in the sculptural and abstract qualities of photography. In their work, each of the featured artists approaches the landscape as a phenomenon, encompassing both manmade and natural forms as well as internal and external landscapes.

In an exhibition where the landscape is both a universal fact and a personal affair, the spectrum of visual approaches is equally as varied. Here, images created directly with the camera sit alongside those that are distorted, sampled, twisted and faded beyond it. The featured artists refuse to be confined to the photographic frame, challenging instead the surface of the image and expanding into spatial installations.
Founded by Trine Stephensen, The Plantation Studio is an art initiative and project space showcasing explorations within contemporary curatorial and photographic fields. They curate various exhibitions, publications and events.

JOHAN ÖSTERHOLM IN BACK TO THE FUTURE, GROUP EXHIBTION IN BUDAPEST, HU

Johan Österholm is part of the group show Back to the Future. The 19th Century in the 21st Century

The Mai Manó House presents the exhibition which focuses on the work of contemporary artists who employ techniques, methods, processes and themes that in one way or another resemble those of early nineteenth-century photographers. As well as being inspired by the pioneering years of photography, they build upon them in surprising ways.

Mai Mano House, Budapest, HU

February 1 – March 16, 2019

The exhibition is an initiative of Foam in collaboration with C/O Berlin, Germany.

YVON CHABROWSKI IN WHAT PARADISE? GROUP SHOW | SAMMLUNG FLORIAN PETERS-MESSER

Yvon Chabrowski, Territory – view 1, 2016, Peters-Messer Collection @ VG Bildkunst, Bonn 2018

“What Paradise?” brings together internationally renowned, frequently discussed positions including Kader Attia, Thomas Hirschhorn and Santiago Sierra, but also still-to-be-discovered artists from a younger generation such as Viktoria Binschtok or the Iranian Arash Hanaei, who is represented with his shocking textual work “Death of a Photographer.” In addition to what are in some cases large-format photographic works, sculptures and videos, a painting and several drawings, visitors will also have the chance to experience a space-encompassing, kinetic installation by the American artist Jon Kessler.

The exhibition offers a pointed, sharply contoured selection of highly political, sometimes explosive works that address the social dislocations of our era in a critical, often oppressive manner.

Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst Bremen, DE, until February 10, 2019

INKA AND NICLAS DESIGN A PEDESTRIAN TUNNEL IN STOCKHOLM

The artist duo Inka and Niclas have completely redesigned a pedestrian tunnel in the area of Stockholm.
 
“When you’re not there, the tunnel pulses slowly, breathes and attracts you. When you approach it, it meets you and lights up. As you leave the tunnel, it tones down and returns to its slow pulsating again.”
