Silent Spring, Artist Talk with Dr. Pierre Ibisch

 

Interdisziplinäres Gesprächvmit Künstler:innen der Ausstellung „Silent Spring“ und Prof. Dr. Pierre Ibisch

In diesem interdisziplinären Gespräch werden wir uns vor den künstlerischen Arbeiten mit den Künstler:innen selbst sowie dem Professor für Naturschutz Dr. Pierre Ibisch über Themenkomplexe der Ausstellung austauschen. Wir sprechen über die Aneignung von Landschaften sowie die Beziehungen zwischen menschlichen und nichtmenschlichen Lebewesen. Wie kann sich ein Wald, der Hitze, Trockenheit und Bränden ausgesetzt ist, selbst regenerieren? Wie können sich die Menschen wieder stärker mit der Natur verbinden? Prof. Dr. Pierre Ibisch leitet das Forschungsprojekt Pyrophob, das untersucht, wie sichWälder gegen Brände und Klimawandel wappnen können.

Opening: Friday, March 25, 2022, 6–9 pm

The Earth bears traces of humans everywhere: melting glaciers, dwindling biodiversity. They not only shape landscapes, but also create artificial worlds and intelligences. But with all their knowledge, humans can neither fully comprehend nature and its complex regulatory mechanisms, nor control or predict the future. Together with guest artists, the Berlin-based artist group pilote contemporary explores the ambiguity that characterizes the relationship between humans and their environment. On the one hand, humans change and destroy the world, appropriate it and intervene in natural processes in the long term; but at the same time, their own finitude and dependence are revealed. The title “Silent Spring” refers to the 1962 book by biologist Rachel Carson, which is considered a key trigger of the 20th century Western environmental movement. The exhibition questions the Western assumption of human and nature as two separate entities, instead focusing on the manifold connections. Presumed hierarchies are questioned, interrelations are highlighted, and humans are positioned as part of larger processes.

I had the opportunity to teach a workshop „DECONSTRUCTION“ with wonderful students during two days on 12 & 13 March 2022.

This workshop was addressed the way we perceive the urban landscape in the neighborhood. Traces of a history that was previously invisible or unknown, personal interpretation or collective memory, can become sources of interpretation and construction of another narrative. During the first day, simple exercises based on observation, sketching, photography, and the collection of materials will help develop a method of research and analysis of the existing building and environment. The idea is to find a place, a situation in the neighborhood where traces of a history are still visible. At the end of the day, these results will be analyzed in groups.During the second day, each participant will have the possibility, to interpret his or her observations in a plastic way, by means of an installation from found materials, collages or other. A presentation of the results will take place at the end of the day.

AXES & A Silentio, Fonderia 20.9, Verona, 2022

 

AXES | 05.02.2022 – 05.03.2022
Opening Saturday 5th February, 7.30 pm
Fonderia 20.9 Via XX Settembre 67/A, Verona (IT)

 

SÅM opens the 2022 edition with AXES. The exhibition is the result of the 2019 artistic residency curated by Rafal Milach and Ania Nalecka-Milach. The work of the four artists involved – Anto Milotta, Claire Laude, Krzysztof Światly, Martina Zanin – has been selected and structured in a constellation of axis in order to operate on both a physical and a metaphorical level. The resulting gallery of images serves as a starting point for the exploration of the town’s structure, its neighbouring villages and natural sites. It, in fact, created an alternative map to the Lessinia region. This project is thus an invitation to new discoveries – either that of new artworks located outside the actual gallery space or that of the territory which functioned as the basis for the artists’ projects.

 

Book Presentation, A SILENTIO, Saturday 5th February, 6.30 pm

 

“A SILENTIO” by Claire Laude is a book published by ESSARTER Éditions. It collects the artistic research of Claire Laude in Lessinia. In her writing and photography, the artist’s book interrogates with examples from two Mediterranean countries, Italy and Greece, our relationship with the land and the notion of permanence in the landscape.
“A SILENTIO” will be presented the 5th of February at 6pm at Fonderia 20.9, the artist will be present for the book signing.

„Gewiß haben wir jetzt statt der Tranlampen Acetylen und elektrisches Licht; allein der Enthusiasmus über die Fortschritte der Beleuchtung vergisst manchmal, dass das Wesentliche doch nicht sie, sondern dasjenige ist, was sie besser sichtbar macht.“

Georg Simmel, 1900

Während der dunkelsten Zeit des Jahres präsentiert das artspring Lichtkunstfestival Langzeitbelichtungen, Lichtinstallationen, Lichtskulpturen, Projektionen, Videoarbeiten und Performances. Ort ist der Pavillon am Milchhof, eine offene Architektur mit teils gläsernen Wänden, in dem die Ausstellungen rund um die Uhr einsehbar sind.

Licht ist ein 4-dimensionales Medium: Es nutzt die Fläche, den Raum und die Zeit, dazu ein Spektrum aus Farben und Kontrasten – und es kann die Welt in ihrer Transparenz regelrecht durchleuchten. Mit der Inszenierung von drei aufeinanderfolgenden Ausstellungen zieht das artspring Lichtkunstfestival eine möglichst helle Spur durch den Winter. Licht kann weit strahlen, aber auch für einen intimen Raum erzeugen, es trägt Symbolcharakter und ist aus dem technischen Zeitalter nicht wegzudenken – die künstlerischen Positionen im Lichtkunstfestival tragen vielen verschiedenen Aspekten Rechnung.

Curated by : Michel Thomas, Fredrik Weerasinghe, Susanna Hesselberg, Jeanette Schou

The theme “Utopia” can be seen as an introspection of our own inner images. Already in 1516, Thomas More wrote the book “Utopia” about a fictional society, but we can also recount the utopian idea in the film and fairytale world, as in “The Wizard of Oz” that makes us feel a golden way forward.Free church brochures offer us colorful pictures of the promised paradise. The Green Wave strives for a utopian world order, but a more dystopic image of the future is also soaring. The 10 selected artists are all showing us different approach to the theme main theme: UTOPIA  Since the world in on lock down we asked the selected artist to film themselves at home or in their workplace. Here are some of the questions we ask the participants:

Do you see yourself as a photographer / artist?
Have your images altered by the world crisis the latest years? By the Climate crisis / the worldwide Pandemic?
What does Utopia mean for you ? Utopia as a social or political vision, a personal belief ?
Does Utopia exist ? Is it a possible dream ?

‚A Silentio‘ includes the two photographic series ‚Murs d’eau, voiles de pierre’ (2019) and ‚Les printemps silencieux‘ (2020). It‘s all about the perception of traditional architecture, the notion of intangible heritage and how to remember it, the traces and inscriptions left by man in rural landscapes and the interpretation we make of them.

 

 

 

Kunst im Bau, Haus des Rundfunks, Berlin, 2021

 

„Kunst im Bau“ – Mit Festival und Ausstellung feiert der rbb 90 Jahre Haus des Rundfunks.

 

Festival „Kunst im Bau“

Haus des Rundfunks, Masurenallee 8-14, 14057 Berlin

Festival von 10 bis 12/09/2021

Ausstellung bis 21/12/2021

 

27 Kulturschaffende aus Berlin und Brandenburg präsentieren vom 10. bis 12. September ihre Werke im Haus des Rundfunks.

Eine Architektur-Ikone feiert in diesem Jahr Geburtstag: das Haus des Rundfunks an der Berliner Masurenallee. rbbKultur hat aus diesem Anlass einen Wettbewerb ausgelobt und Kulturschaffende eingeladen, sich mit Architektur und Geschichte des einzigartigen Funkhauses von Architekt Hans Poelzig auseinanderzusetzen.

Mehr als 300 Künstlerinnen und Künstler aus der Region folgten der Einladung. Aus den Einreichungen hat eine rbbKultur-Jury 27 Kulturschaffende und Ensembles ausgewählt, die ihre Werke während des „Kunst im Bau“-Festivals vom 10. bis zum 12. September im Haus des Rundfunks präsentieren.

rbbKultur-Programmchefin Verena Keysers: „Das Haus des Rundfunks ist architektonisches Meisterwerk und Zeitkapsel zugleich. Seit jeher war es zudem ein Haus der Kunst und Kultur. Die jetzt eigens für das Haus entstandenen Werke setzen sich in vielfältiger Weise mit Architektur und Geschichte des Hauses auseinander. Ich freue mich darauf, mit den Besucherinnen und Besuchern von Festival und Ausstellung gemeinsam unseren alltäglichen Arbeitsort auf einzigartige Weise neu zu erleben. Zugleich wollten wir mit dem Wettbewerb ein Zeichen setzen und Künstlerinnen und Künstler in der schwierigen Corona-Zeit unterstützen.“

Mit dabei sind unter anderen das Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, das Neue Musik Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, der Rundfunkchor Berlin, die zeitgenössische Tanzcompagnie cie.toula limnaios, das Staatsballett Berlin und die Kunsthalle Below.

Das Haus des Rundfunks verwandelt sich in einen temporären Kunstort: Den Lichthof nimmt eine raumgreifende Fadenskulptur ein. Im Treppenhaus ertönen eigens komponierte Klänge und neben Fotografien, Filmen, Installationen, Zeichnungen, Gemälden, Skulpturen und dem Paternoster als bewegter Bühne für Objektkunst sind im Haus Performances zu erleben, unter anderem zur sowjetischen Wachkommando-Zeit. Die Arbeiten setzen sich auseinander mit der Architektur und den kleinen und großen Geschichten, die dieses Haus so besonders machen. Das Kunstfestival „Kunst im Bau“ gibt es live im Haus des Rundfunks, im rbbKultur Radio und mit Livestreams, Bildergalerien und allen Informationen auf rbbkultur.de.

Am Festivalwochenende findet der Besuch in Form von zweistündigen Führungen durch das Haus statt. Im Anschluss an das Festival zeigt der rbb noch bis zum 12. Dezember die Werke, ermöglicht Interessierten weiterhin Führungen durch die Ausstellung und lädt zu Veranstaltungen im Rahmen von „Kunst im Bau“ ein.

This year’s topic „Air- Luft“ for the 48 Stunden Neukölln art festival in Berlin inspires our artists to air their concepts, performances and drawings.

The festival as a whole will be a hydrid event: part online, part offline. After going full-on digital for the last festival, Sub Tei will be presenting works only in the gallery space this year. We look forward to meeting guests and artists again in the flesh! Because of restrictions, we won’t be hosting an opening event or any live events during the weekend but we welcome all real-life visitors and will be making sure that everyone will be safe and comfortable.

Pilote

An exhibition without public access, an art work without audience: pilote contemporary’s first group exhibition this year will take place behind literally closed doors.

From 19.02 – 01.03.2021, the ten artists will assemble their works under the title Biscuit in the project space p145 in Berlin Mitte, with the large-scale window façade deliberately kept covered to keep the exhibition out of sight of the walking public. pilote contemporary aims to take advantage of the current situation of the pandemic while using the radical concept of Biscuit to reflect on fundamental questions:

When is art actually art?

Does an art work need the public context to be declared and recognized as art?

What happens to an exhibition when no one sees it and what does it do to the artists?

Does the confrontation of closed gallery spaces with the public turn the exhibition into a performance itself?

For pilote contemporary, Biscuit is a result of the Corona situation and a chance to reflect on the above questions while dealing with them intensively in an artistic way. For all participants – artists and audience – Biscuit is an experiment that is understood as a research process and whose outcome is open.

Biscuit assembles pieces by: Attilio Tono, Betty Böhm, Carla Mercedes Hihn, Catherine Evans, Claire Laude, Dana Engfer, Kathrin Ganser, Sarah Straßmann, Selket Chlupka and Stefan Klein. Contextually appropriate, the overarching theme of the exhibited works is that of visibility or invisibility.

Berlin’s fall art program is coming up and the ten artists of pilote contemporary are looking forward to presenting their first group show since the addition of four new members at SUB TEI in Neukölln.

Works will be presented by: Attilio Tono, Betty Böhm, Kathrin Ganser, Sarah Straßmann and Selket Chlupka – all of whom have been part of pilote’s artist roster since its founding in 2016, as well as Carla Mercedes Hihn, who has been part of pilote since 2018, and Catherine Evans, Claire Laude, Dana Engfer and Stefan Klein, who have been part of pilote contemporary since April 2020.

„The new members complete the team and make it tangible as a diverse artistic union. That is why we are even more pleased to be able to give pilote contemporary the opportunity to exhibit as a newly formed group in our spaces for the first time and despite corona conditions,“ says Constanze Schweda of SUB TEI.

About pilote contemporary : Pilote brings together the work of ten Berlin-based artists. Presenting independent artistic positions that share a strong critical and conceptual engagement, the works are presented to the public through an exhibition program that also invites guest artists and curators to work directly with the artists in the development of thematically based exhibitions. Pilote’s public program occupies spaces temporarily in a conscious effort to shift the fixed gallery model. 

About SUB TEI Sub Tei translated from Romanian means „under lime trees“. Founded in 2018 and directed by the artist couple Constanze Schweda and Henry Rusted, SUB TEI pursues a different form of exhibition making. SUB TEI is not a commercial gallery, but a self-managed project space for exhibitions, events and short artist residencies.

Residency ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ // Kinono 4 | “Four (plus one) Elements)”, Tinos, Greece

 

After four years of continuous presence on the island of Tinos, Kinono Tinos Art Gathering introduces this year’s Thematic Series of “Four (plus one) elements”, which will last for a whole year, through four different seasons, until the fall of 2020.

Κinono borrows the four elements of earth, fire, water and air and adds the element of time, on two tokens, one as the alternating seasons of the year and two as the season of human intervention on natural and cultural landscapes. This way it wishes to draw the attention of artists, scientists, philosophers and researchers to the dual passing of time and to the particular atmosphere and characteristics of the island of Tinos.

The theme of 4+1 elements is a proposal which aims to integrate the landscape itself to our concept of space, time, energy. The 4+1 elements project will delve into the relationships between the modern interdisciplinary scientific practices of visual arts, research, humane sciences, and new media, time and place expression through the islands material environments. Those environments vary: constructed or natural, both interior and exterior, urban and agricultural, material and immaterial as well as comprised by a complex of places, historical buildings, natural landscapes. It is a project that aims at researching and absorbing both the landscape-nature-time in our concept for time and space, material and tradition, matter, energy, natural resources and the environment with activities, processes and narrations coming from experimental, imaginative, descriptive ways for creating an environment.

In order to implement this year’s thematic series, “Kinono” is making an open call for the formulation of proposals / projects by choosing one of the following four elements: Fire (winter), Water (spring), Air (summer), Earth (Autumn) , to be created (through resident-hospitality) and presented respectively in the months of: January, April, August, October 2020 in different locations and buildings throughout the island of Tinos in relation to their respective elements.

Collaboration with Film Festival della Lessinia & Fonderia 20.9

“ Axis / SAM 2019

We perceive SAM residency as a growing archive of personal / intimate artistic gestures that correspond with wider environment. Multiple layers are involved in this process from geography, history to geology from social, economic to political contexts. It’s a platform where personal traumas are examined along the voices commenting global trends. This dialogue between outsider’s perspectives and local habitat creates an intriguing shift of local contexts and potentially makes them the agents of wider agendas. With the second SAM residency we are more than a half way through the puzzle of stories that help to rethink Lessinia.
The work of 4 artists has been structured in a constellation of axis operating on both physical and metaphorical level. The gallery serves as a starting point in exploration of town’s structure, neighboring villages and natural sites. The works have created an alternative map of the region. It’s an invitation to make physical trip to either discover more works located outside of the gallery space or go back and rediscover the places with the backdrop the artists have proposed.“

“ Claire Laude dagegen sucht mit ihrer Rauminstallation Ephemeral Interects, La Maison de Verre (2019, Holz, Glas, Farbreste, Metall) die Verortung „realer Fundstücke“ und platziert Teile von Fenstern und Türen unabhängig voneinander und ohne verbindende Mauerteile im Ausstellungsraum.“

 

RBB- Online, 18/07/2019
“ La Maison de Verre, „Glashaus“, nennt die französische Künstlerin Claire Laude ihre räum ausbreitende Installation aus alten Fenstern und Türen, die sie im Abrisshäuser gefunden und gerettet hat. Sie erinnert einerseits an alte handwerkliche Traditionen und Qualitäten und lädt zugleich ein, in der Phantasie ein neues Haus damit entsteht zu lassen.

»The Future of Time« widmet sich der künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung mit Fragestellungen zur Zeit. Ob historisches Memento mori oder visionäre Zukunftsvisionen, die Verortung auf der Achse der Zeit bildet einen Ankerpunkt für unser Bewusstsein. Hier lässt sich das Vergangene reflektieren, das Künftige ins Visier nehmen und die Gegenwart begreifen.
Die Ausstellung verbindet verschiedene Positionen internationaler Künstler*Innen in teils raumgreifenden Installationen und eröffnet dem Publikum vielseitige und neue Perspektiven auf ein universelles Thema. Lassen Sie sich überraschen und nehmen Sie sich die Zeit.

Såm Lessinia

Lessinia is a geographic region located in the Prealpi Venete, most of which is part of the province of Verona whereas the remaining smaller part remains under of the provinces of Vicenza and Trento.
A slice of this territory constitutes the Regional Natural Park of Lessinia – a vast plateau of forests and grazing land, where nature and traditions of ancient populations blend in together. It is a land of spectacular karst phenomena and traditional districts with stone rooftops, it is rich in fossil deposits unique in the world that serve as proof of its origins.The natural park, instituted in 1990, occupies 10’000 hectares rich in history, archaeology, unique natural and geological phenomena; as well as priceless ethnographical, architectural and linguistic aspects. Bosco Chiesanuova, with a population of 3’000 inhabitants, is one of the most important districts of Lessinia and it is located 30 km from Verona.
SÅM is a triennial project based on the visual exploration of Lessinia. SAM operates in collaboration with the Lessinia Film Festival which includes many cultural events revolving around the theme of the mountain, taking place in the rooms of the gallery Fonderia 20.9 in Verona. The artist residency is now at its second edition and also includes a workshop in Bosco Chiesanuova. SÅM is a project curated by Ana Blagojevic, Chiara Bandino and Francesco Biasi.

Altered States, WUK, Vienna 2019

 

24/01 – 09/03/2019

Kunsthalle Exnergasse, WUK, Vienna

 

 

With works by Lina Albrikiene (LT), Jolanta Dolewska (PL/GB), Olson Lamaj (AL), Claire Laude (FR), Susana Pilar (CU)

Curated by Nadia Pérez (MX)

Context is a mental mechanism that gives meaning to human experiences. Decontextualisation eliminates this mechanism by separating the subject of study from the environment that frames it. Without context we alter the order of the narrative. One might argue that decontextualisation renders a sign meaningless, but it can serve as means to develop a reflexive, artistic, innovative thought process. Five artists formulate their artistic proposals based on this common process. They apply the method of decontextualisation in varying ways to explore concerns that arise when examining the concepts of time, space, identity, memory, and the present. The exhibited projects weave an intimate narrative that generates questions about the human being and the circumstances that surround us.

Les Utopies Rouges, 2019

 

„Red Utopias is a collection of three books that bring together the photographs and texts of a dozen European authors and photographers around the theme of political utopias in Europe in a post post-soviet era.

In the wake of the centenary of the October revolution, we have been reminded that communism is and only has been possible through the unreality of literature and theory. Throughout history, the application of socialist theories of Marx, Lenin and Stalin proved to have a propensity for totalitarianism. Everywhere,the influence of the USSR was so strong that it remainsin memory as a kind of hope, an inaccessible dream necessary to maintain. As if it were a political plan still possible, it sees itself unevenly commemorated between societies.

The idea that commemoration is sometimes utopianis reflected in the historiography of the Euromaidanin 2014. The revolution that preceeded the war.The national pride of the uprising, embodied by the decommunisation, has produced disillusionment. To remedy this, inhabitants, intellectuals, writers, artists and photographers are seeking to reinvent life in society. On the other side, in the separatist zone of Donbass, the glorious moments of the USSR are celebrated, and the inhabitants, caught up in the war, try to live in this microcosm, relying on socialist hope.

Entering this year, we have seen through numerous publications and societies -Western but also
the farthest – a need to talk about dreams to escape.

It is a question of collecting the testimonies of a particular utopia. An utopia that envisages the revival of another utopia: The Communist utopia.
Is there any sense in talking about replicating this utopia? Is it not more a kind of restoration if it is
the elites who call it their wishes? Or is it not a kind of reactionary thought on the part of the popular circles that won nothing at the fall of the Berlin wall?

It would then be a curious reaction since it wouldre-establish an ideology that specifically deniesany value to the past. What is the object of the nostalgia of Communism: This is what we want
to discover, we who first grasp it as a mortifying ideology? Are we blinded by Western propaganda and by a more biased teaching than we would like to believe?

Red Utopias are collective memories, spaces and people. We interrogate architectures and places of memory through testimony and theory.

Red Utopias are an assembly of large format books that gives as much space to images as it does texts, without relegating one or the other to a secondary plan. Connected together by small notches, Red Utopias are a construction that readers can manipulate, clip, detach, reattach, assemble.

The trilogy Red Utopias brings the resultant content to life through individual launchings, a meeting and a series of lectures in the presence of photo-graphers and authors across France, the UK andmore. It gives readers the opportunity to be able to share their thoughts, to exchange, to question, the books become a meeting space.“

Urbanautica Photo Annual Awards, 2018

I’m happy and proud to be the Winner of the Urbanautica Photo Annual Awards 2018, Category Architecture, Space and Conflicts!

 

 

Winner Claire Laude

Shortlisted Arthur CrestaniAlex CurrieAndrew Waits

Special mention Marinos Tsagkarakis

“ About We are proud to announce the first ever Urbanautica Institute annual awards dedicated to the photographic project!
We are looking to reward photographers who have distinguished themselves with:

  • the high quality of their research,
  • the ability to convey meaningful messages with their work,
  • the strength to go deeper on those issues most important to society,
  • and who open the language and the narrative form to other perspectives.

We are looking for project-oriented work not, single „wow“ images.
We have chosen specific categories and topics. We are aware that there are different and alternative approaches today to the photographic medium and the production of images, and we welcome a variety of photographic modalities (linguistic, structural, formal and expressive) through which these issues are addressed. We care about the depth of intuitive thinking as much as the strength and coherence of the proposal.

Jury We are the Jury! In the past ten years, Urbanautica Institute has contributed to the medium of photography by presenting the work of international photographers and educators with great care and attention, while also raising awareness of photography’s role in the world. Our Journal archive counts several hundred interviews, scores of reviews, and almost uncountable photographs and projects. Our credibility is based on research and studies that require years of effort, professionalism, competence, patience,  and passion, and is proven through our collaborations with galleries and museums worldwide in the resulting exhibitions and catalogues.
We feel that now is the time to give life to a serious international photographic competition that will not only reward authors, but will help continue to fulfill our mission, stimulating a critical reading of images, and fostering a better knowledge of the world and of photographic grammar.“
