Archives for the Month of April, 2012

Thomas Hämén

Thomas Hämén Work from Flatland. “If we were able to take, as the finest allegory of simulation, the Borges tale where the cartographers of the Empire draw up a map so detailed that it ends up exactly covering the territory (but where, with the decline of the Empire this map becomes frayed and finally ruined, […]

Rebecca Ward

Rebecca Ward Work from her oeuvre. “Ward’s site-specific works are intricate and thoughtfully planned geometric installations applied to an interior in a way that comments on the site’s architecture. Ward’s signature medium is tape — be it electrical tape, duct tape or masking tape. Through this medium she explores the unique structures of the sites […]

Henning Bohl

Henning Bohl Work from “Namenloses Grauen” at Casey Kaplan, NY. “…As I have said, reasons come in like doughnuts and they lead the way. Once the doughnuts took place on the pictures, there needed to be a carpet to connect the paintings to a space and this space couldn’t be the gallery as it was. […]

Kate Owens

Kate Owens Work from her oeuvre. “There is an argument that contends that we only really become sensitive to a given object’s characteristics – its truth – when it is no longer able to perform its prescribed function. According to this logic, the hammerness of a hammer becomes most apparent when we see it lying […]

Tobias Madison

Tobias Madison Works from “Hydrate+Perform“. “Tobias Madison’s first US solo show is a newly commissioned project in two parts. Hydrate + Perform consists of many large acrylic tanks, each filled with a different flavor of Vitamin Water. The stunning blocks of pastel color create a counter rhythm to the columns that support the gallery space […]

Anders Clausen

Anders Clausen Work from “Year of Cooperation” at Broadway 1602. “Made on a giant inexact industrial printer (it can turn turn greytones into yellow), and printed onto a form of upvc canvas that could be the hoarding that covered a Doges Palace in scale and durability, Anders Clausen’s ‘Color Picker’ works draw on computer software icons, desktop […]

Katja Novitskova & Amalia Ulman

Katja Novitskova & Amalia Ulman Work from Profit | Decay “A trophy decomposes, triumphs vanish and the symbol turns into dust. Everything goes back to the estate of calm, switching the energy infused towards production, to the lethargy of recuperation, the acedia of the spoiled and the otium of the wise. The stillness that follows the […]

Sol LeWitt

Sol LeWitt Work from Wall Drawings. “In 1968, LeWitt began to conceive sets of guidelines or simple diagrams for his two-dimensional works drawn directly on the wall, executed first in graphite, then in crayon, later in colored pencil and finally in chromatically rich washes of India ink, bright acrylic paint, and other materials.[10] Between 1969 […]

Boris Dornbusch

Boris Dornbusch Work from his oeuvre. “Working with a range of media from video to more object based sculptural installations, Boris Dornbusch draws on a broad range of formal references to explore commonplace objects, social situations and environmental conditions that he alters and then documents. Through this process he investigates the relationship between perception, visualisation […]

Ned Vena

Ned Vena Work from his show at White Flag Projects. “Ned Vena’s paintings combine the artist’s astute readings of minimalism, post-painterly abstraction, and op-art with a unique technical process to render austere meditations on materiality and art history. For this exhibition, Vena will produce a new series of works utilizing common steel doors and adhesive […]
