MOST RECENT PROJECTS, EXHIBITIONS, FESTIVALS


2023


Work continues at Pedvale Art Park.

Work continues as the final week approaches at Pedvale Art Park. The Land Art object in the early morning dew. And a video and performance rehearsal in the afternoon sun.

The project is funded by the European Union and implemented by the Goethe-Institut as part of the CULTURE MOVES EUROPE funding program.


Half of the game at Pedvale

Almost half of the project schedule has expired. After a bit of an arduous start, the Land Art object and audiovisual elements of the project are now starting to take shape after a while.

The rural environment and the manor give the opportunity to create audio visual material outside of an indoor studio or location. The vast wide and quiet emptiness of landscape gives you a new view for try and work outs not only for a land art object but also for video and performance pieces. However as this a public museum park you still have the chance to interact with the visitors to the art park

The project is founded by the European Union and implemented by the Goethe-Institut through the CULTURE MOVES EUROPE grant scheme.


 The red flag for start a project.

During the whole month of May 2023 I will be engaged with a new interdisciplinary project at Pedvale Art Park in Sabile, Latvia. I will be working in the fields of Land Art, sound, video and performance. This Project will be a bit distinguished from most previous projects which were in general created in collaboration with others. This time no collaboration will be involved. It is more an individual site specific project related to the environments around Pedvale… nature, space, sound, the manor, and the objects which are within.

The project is founded by the European Union and implemented by the Goethe-Institut through the CULTURE MOVES EUROPE grant scheme

" View behind the curtain" is part of The Ashes of Eden project  which is a joint work with  Jana Schmück (Bautzen)The concept of the project is based on isolating, cataloguing, analyzing and studying in detail these site-specific themes or objects. Deepening the context they are in, how they differ from one place to another, urban/rural and social settings, neighborhoods or communities. How autonomous are the spaces or objects of a region and how are they related and interconnected?

Tue. to Fri. 14-17 h, Sat. 10-14 h, Sun. & public holidays 11-17 h.

Kornhausstrasse 14 , Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany

 

"The State of The World " always means a summarizing view, the definition of an interim balance, which presupposes an occupation, an analysis, one's own positioning. For the first exhibition of the season, the Kunstverein was calling for analogue (non-digital) print work, such as, woodcuts, linocuts, silkscreen Between horror and hope, hesitation and fearlessness, political view and individual life perspective, scientifically based or subjectively meandering - we want to unfold a panopticon from very different perspectives.

Wednesday to Saturday 12:00 - 5:00 PM

Curators Chantelle Mitchell & Jaxon Waterhouse (Ecological Gyre Theory)

 

This exhibition emerges from our shared research into questions of time, planetarity and connectivity as they relate to the horizon line - that ever-present bisection of space that informs much of our existence. Drawn from Gerald Murnane’s The Plains this exhibition attempts to manifest a particularly terrestrial ‘overview effect’, with attention to that ‘scant layer of haze where land and sky merged in the farthest distance’.
