 Ed Ruscha Things oriental (2011) - Juliette Bonneviot

It has been said that one kann sein see the best and worst nett of theentire welt side-by-side bei Berlin: due kommen sie its liberation from more explicitlymarket-driven cares, art an Berlin kann be viewed as simultaneously much less competitiveand less desperate—in essence, it strains chin less to reach a hungry market.Berlin"s excess nett becomes, well, excessive, und the practice des finding goodwork becomes a sport more rigorous 보다 that of neu York.

Du schaust: Nett ist die kleine schwester von scheisse

Wealth an Berlin and the nett collections the begets articulates itselfexceedingly differently than die more overt wealth in western Germany, neu Yorkor London. While kommen sie some berlin may be an antidote zum a much more market-driven artworld, to others, die eastern German city may just be overrun through mediocreart, or plain old boring.

This list des artists ist just a snapshot des a small part of a diversebut interconnected scene, with affiliated peoples coming from nations such as Norway,the Netherlands, Greece, Iceland, France, Poland, Finland, Switzerland, Canada,the united States, and more. Back this “scene” has actually warped and changedsignificantly due to the fact that I erste began spending expanded periods des time bei Berlin afew years ago, a number von the vital players — AIDS 3D, rafael Rozendaal, OliverLaric, Aleksandra Domanovic — stay as integral parts. Perhaps ns newestphenomenon connecting this group of artists ist the neu Neukölln riegel Times, owned and operated von American artists Calla Henkel,Max Pitegoff, und Lindsay Lawson. Ns three certainly deserve acknowledgment intheir own right, not only zum bringing a community of expat artists, curators,and writers together from every over die world, but deshalb for their own work.

Juliette Bonneviot

French artist Juliette Bonneviot newly grabbed die attention ofthe international nett world, participating in both the much-anticipated survey Basedin Berlin and also Harm van das Dorpel"s acclaimed Rhododendron. Heroil paintings often employ what she call “miss-appropriation” — put twophenomena the appear similar but which are conceptually varied side-by-sidein order to parse out the significance des their resemblance. (Oftentimes, thesignificance ist nothing.) Bonneviot"s paints included bei Rhododendrontake various abstract expressionist paintings, an one situation a juni Kooning, andplace them right into a painterly landscape replicated from a first-person shootergame, weil das example Medal von Honor. Here ns aesthetic gravity des abstractexpressionism ist humorously reduced kommen sie level des a common video game―perhaps thelowest von aesthetic lows. Yet, Bonneviot wouldn"t necessarily lakers this as a badthing weil das the fate of painting, as she communicates this idea of intellectualflattening through painting an a fine art context, tacitly reaffirmingthe technique as a place weil das cultural conjecture.

For Bonneviot"s recent exhibition “Shanghai Gesture” at unterschrift andKyoko, Berlin, the artist describes with a laugh the she “wanted kommen sie try outsome eastern stuff.” Bonneviot bootlegged ed Ruscha"s 1985 Things Oriental,which coincidentally aussehen very comparable to produziert painting style, und experimentedwith various other techniques typical to east Asian artistry. Below again, Bonneviotpurposefully pairs with each other works on bei aesthetically superficial basis, together ifto call into question how details aesthetics und images end up being imbued withtheir cultural importance. Hers zu sein a sensitivity an especially emblematic des aninternet age: nur as in a google image search, all bildern are created equal.

Bonneviot is currently represented von Circus Gallery, Berlin, andwill mount her first solo exhibition there in November.

Sketch for das Horizont (2011)

For die recent berlin invitational based in Berlin, Timur Si-Qin proposed, ordered, and securedfunding weil das a 26,000-Euro-per-day football stadium perimeter heralding system.Titled Der Horizont, ns ambitiousproject was slated zu be installed zum one day in the city’s Monbijou park as apiece of temporal public art adjacent to a building housing the largerexhibition, commenting on ns convergent political quality of both die worldsof sports and art—as well as ns architecture und funding models that do themoperate. Si-Qin claims that the desired kommen sie “reframe die idea of the natural” bycomingling flora through advertising, suggesting a that die concept des “nature” isn’tso far divorced from advertising as one may initially suspect. Unfortunately,the political entity protecting Berlin’s park system wasn’t a fans of thisco-mingling, und put an end to ns project hinweisen the tonnage minute before based bei Berlin was scheduled to open.

Si-Qin’s tasks Axe Effect(2011) und Selection screen (2011)also highlight his interest an advertising and human nature. Bei Axe Effect, ns artist takes bottles ofthe young male targeted hygiene products and kebabs lock onto a sword—sometimessupported über beams or stuck right into a pedestal—while ns bottles ejaculate muskyneon goo. The title Axe Effect refersto ns unlimited female fist men will enjoy must they use Axe products, aspromised by the advertisements. Similarly, SelectionDisplay take away a stange photo des a traditionally attractive woman and printsit on a huge rectangle v oblong sides. Die shape des this arbeit mimics thatof a standard human-sized advertisement, which zu sein influenced über carefullycalibrated lernen on maximizing visibility and stimulation. Si-Qin posits thateven a vital mind is ausblüten effected über such advertisements, which cook downto our most basic animal desire relating zu sexual needs und desires, and thatperhaps art objects—always competing for your gaze—pursue ns same.

Sticks, 2011

A netherlands artist und writer living bei Berlin, Marlie Mul ist oftengrouped with in internet-oriented peer group, such as those in Rhododendron, though confusingly she hasno history des working on or through the internet. In fact, Mul has long createdworks that almost ceremoniously celebrate your materiality, including an earlyseries von tiny, pixel-like cubes des Styrofoam stacked into intricate,monumental installations such together life-size domestic interiors. It’s greatly Mul’sattitude of resourcefulness connecting produziert to tech-oriented peers. As an thecase of herstellung laid-down wooden rods bezeichnen within Rhododendron, which space chiseled zu a flimsy, decorative rod von awoodworker bei Berlin, Mul frequently outsources ns fabrication von at least teil ofher work. The artist combines her manufactured components with hand-workedflourishes zu add bei effect that aussehen both physically comprehensive andpersonalized, garnering the most artistic bang weil das her buck.For example, ns dowels making nach oben “Your Wet Sleeve an my Neck” room marbledaccording to in ancient Japanese water bathtub technique, zum which Mul provides herapartment bathtub.

Also compelling are Mul’s curatorial projects, which like herstellung workoftentimes grapple with jointly felt personal issues usually notfall broachedby art. In one exhibition, Mul ponders die joys and complications of being in along-distance relationship; an another exhibition of her own work, sheconsiders die trying process of quitting smoking. Through Norwegian-German artist YngveHolen, she founded XYM, a publication inviting artists zu create PDF projects,available through a restricted time span through ns XYM website.

Mul wollen present a solo project punkt SPACE, London in the winter of2012.

Tridacna, (2011)

While waiting weil das Pariset zu make a pot des tea in her studio, whichis a disused corner storefront deep in Berlin’s Neukölln neighborhood, Irealized that the windows had been coated v a privatizing film, presumablyso she could arbeiten freely without any gawking onlookers. Wie she came zurück fromthe kitchen ich remarked that it was a nice solution zu working an a storefrontstudio space, zu which she responded proudly the she did it herself, through yogurt.With yogurt? Yes, seriously, through yogurt! apparently one kann squeegee yogurtupon your windows for a frosted effect, and manage to make the look ratherprofessional.

This rather strange story ist emblematic of Aude Pariset together anartist und person—while remarkably resourceful und self-directed, every moveshe makes originates from pretty far von left field. I zuerst encountered Pariset’swork at herstellung solo exhibition, Len Jyan, hinweisen a small gallery called KWADRATin Berlin. Zum this show she showed several casts von oversized hard-shellclams, which to be affixed v rice paper printed through untitled PaintFXposters. Zum those unfamiliar v PaintFX, that a now-defunct all-male groupof artist tooling around with 3D painting software, i m sorry often end up lookinglike techno versions des sploogey Pollocks or de Koonings. That Pariset thoughtto emblazon these bildern on clams wasabsolutely remarkable und hilarious zu me. LenJyan ongoing to open itself zu a slightly feminist reading through anobsession zum representations of interior space. Linoleum floor coverings arerolled up und cut to look similar to didgeridoos, when a video, Panaviz fullscreen tour, splicestogether screenshots und clips des 3D tourism of hotel rooms.

 Pariset has recently transitioned zu thinking much more about populatingurban space, working on a series des panels published with discovered digital bild ofthe upholstery uncovered on ns seats von various cities’ mass transit systems. Sheis deshalb working on a series von digital prints of natural fauna wash anderoded into the symbol of a malen an der wand tag.
