WHY DUCHAMP?
From object to museum and back (125 years)

Curator: Maria Vassileva

March 8th – April 1st 2012 / opening March 8th, 6 pm

Marcel Duchamp (July 28th 1887 – October 2nd 1968) is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. With his works and artistic actions he changed the attitudes to art and the ways for its perception. His oeuvre is a source of inspiration and cause for constant reevaluation even now. In 2004 his “Fountain” was nominated by 500 distinguished artists and art historians as the art work that has most strongly influenced the development of art in the 20th century.

During the last 15 years a lot of works by Bulgarian artists were dedicated to Marcel Duchamp. The idea for this exhibition was indeed born because of their persistent need to engage with this artist and to search for answers to questions posed by his art. The exhibition is showing already existing works as well as new ones that are made especially for this project. We are using the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Duchamp’s birth in order to once again talk about him and with him.

25 artists with more than 40 works are participating: Adelina Popnedeleva, Alla Georgieva, Bora Petkova, Valentin Stefanoff, Valio Tchenkov, Vassil Simittchiev, Vikenti Komitski, Vladimir Ivanov, Ivan Moudov, Kiril Prashkov, Kosta Tonev, Krassimir Terziev, Luchezar Boyadjiev, Mina Minov, Nadezhda Oleg Lyahova, Nestor Kovachev, Nina Kovacheva, Peter Tzanev, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Rada Boukova, Sasho Stoitzov, Samuil Stoyanov, Stefan Nikolaev, Stefania Batoeva, and HR-Stamenov. They are showing objects, installations, video, paintings and drawings.

Each participant has also answered a question posed by the curator of the show: “Why Duchamp?” The answers that are published in a special bilingual (Bulgarian and English) newsletter provide another angle to the exhibition.

POOR BUT SEXY

Anton Stoyanov (Berlin), Vikenti Komitski(Sofia), Voin de Voin (Berlin), Lazar Lyutakov(Vienna), Loubri(Sofia), Rada Boukova(Paris)

17 September 2011 – 30 October 2011


In a TV interview in 2003, Berlin mayor Claus Wowereit famously said that the German capital is “poor but sexy”. His phrase has since gained wider international recognition and been adopted by contemporary artists around the world – a personal slogan occasionally contradicted by the sensationally high sales of some of the artists’ works.

To launch its 2011/12 season, the Sariev Gallery has chosen this slogan to present artists whom it has either previously worked with or has an interest in working with in the future. They are all Bulgarian-born, living in different European cities and working in a variety of genres and media. Some of the selected works were created especially for this exhibition, while others have been shown elsewhere – but they are all indicative of the artists’ main area of interest.

The works in Poor But Sexy are tired of the insistent demonstration of value in contemporary art. They are made from old and recycled materials and speak in a direct and unconditional language – the outcome of a spontaneous approach to production time, as well as much talent, skill and an acute sense of context.

The future is over and now we stand on the ruins of projects for happy and prospering humankind. Repeatedly during the last decades a start countdown has been activated from ground zero and it set a new threshold between old and new in the intersexual relations, geopolitics and history, wishing to close chapters with antiquated rules.
The artists who participate in the exhibition do not search for an apocalypse at all means, or at least – they do not find their audience after that. Most of them offer us a view from the end and beyond. Their artworks turn time into an endless loop, time, which bends into itself and carries different perspective to past events; it offers us to believe into new utopias or to dethrone the belief that the future is happy.

Today we live beyond the end of the story, beyond the end of art... As we find ourselves in that very moment when the animation character has stepped over the edge of the precipice, and walked into the air and a second after he has realized that, he would fly down.

The exhibition “The End and Beyond” will be opened on 9th September, 18:00 o’clock at Center for Contemporary Art – Plovdiv, the Ancient Bath and it will remain open until 9th October, 2011.
Working hours: 11:00 – 18:00.

INSTITUTE OF COMNTEMPORARY ART – SOFIA

AFTER THE FLIGHT

Curator: Iara Boubnova

May 26 – June 25, 2011; Opening – May 25th, Wednesday, 7 pm

On April 12th 2011 the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first human flight in outer space. Yuri Gagarin visited Bulgaria on May 25th 1961 – that was the second country he visited after the flight in the course of his “world tour”. It is in Sofia during this trip that the famous photograph of Gagarin holding a white dove was taken. This photograph became the source image for the Pablo Picasso drawing/serigraph/lithograph from 1961 titled “A Drawing for Yuri Gagarin”.

Fifty years ago this event seemed like a miracle. Today it is part of a past which is of interest to nobody. Flights in space are now considered to be a costly and outdated attraction. Nowadays it is hard to reconstruct the universal feeling of optimism and incredible achievement for the entire humankind that was present at the time. Over the years its goals and empirical significance have suffered a drastic scale reduction. The general reevaluation of history negated utopia and globalization took a completely different turn.

Nonetheless, the event and its anniversary deserves the reflective attention of artists; even more so because the notion of outer space was always present and can be followed throughout the entire history of art ever since the first humans started gazing into the stars. Let’s not forget either that Yuri Gagarin was the first ever spectator who saw our planet from a distance and appreciated its beauty!

Does his flight put an end to one of the oldest human utopia; to what extent is the fact of “the first human flight in space” eclipsed now by technology, politics, economical and biological problems; do we miss the dreams of life away from Earth and landing on other planets or are these not needed anymore; the actual “first man in space” (1961), the film saga Star Wars (since 1977), and the Strategic Defense Initiative called Star Wars (1983) tied up into a knot of techno-hopes and techno-catastrophes – these are some of the themes investigated in the exhibited works by the artists participating in the show:

Stefania Batoeva, Luchezar Boyadjiev, Rada Boukova, Kalina Dimitrova, Mariela Gemisheva, Zoran Georgiev, Alla Georgieva, Katya Damianova and Anton Terziev, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Daniela Kostova, Nadezhda Oleg Lyahova, Lazar Lyutakov, Oleg Mavromatti, Boris Missirkov and Georgi Bogdanov, Vladimir Mitrev, Ivan Moudov, Stefan Nikolaev, Kiril Prashkov, Boryana Rossa, Kalin Serapionov, Nedko Solakov, HR-Stamenov, Raycho Stanev, Samuil Stoyanov, Krassimir Terziev, Veronika Tzekova.

ICA Gallery, 134 Vassil Levski Blvd., Sofia (entry from Ekzarh Iosif Street). Open: Tuesday – Saturday from 3 pm to 7 pm and by appointment

L'incertitude ou l'arc-en-ciel,
la momie ou la poétique de l'énergie,
le sublime ou l'horizon 2020,
l'égarement ou le banal,
le sentiment océanique ou la bête noire,
le fantasme ou l'hypertension,
le sommeil de la raison ou le dos de la cuillère,
ou encore la dissonance de l'hiver face au déluge composent ce drame bruitiste.

Ces artistes ne se définissent pas comme un collectif mais plutôt comme des individualités s'associant le temps d'une exposition à l'image des All Stars Bands, formations éphémères où des musiciens se réunissent pour jouer ensemble le temps d'un album ou de quelques concerts. Ces alliances se modulent au fil des invitations et collaborations entre artistes. Elles sont portées par l'envie de créer des résonances, des confrontations qui installent une dynamique de jeu favorisant un dialogue, une redéfinition, une lecture différente des oeuvres autour d'un thème. Cette carte blanche fait suite à l'exposition « Invisible ? » présentée lors de la biennale de Belleville 2010.

THE BIG BANG
15 March – 30 April 2011

“The Big Bang” is a project by curator Svetlana Kuyumdzhieva, in which the theory of how the Universe came into being is a symbol of an ending and a beginning.
The exhibition recreates a different world that has grown out of the lessons and the dramatic environmental threats and catastrophes of our time. It is a world that takes shape in darkness and in post-apocalyptic conditions in which documents and myths, fiction and reality merge into one.
The project’s idea comprises a set of problems about the relationships between man and his surroundings in the context of climate change. Drawing on the energy of contemporary Bulgarian artists and designers, the “Bang” is an experiment that turns the gallery into a laboratory. Through 30 April the space will host an unusual, artificially created and mutated ecosystem whose aim is to point up certain drastic problems and offer some solutions.
New, adapted species; piles of waste packaging; guerrilla gardening; threats from outer space; environmentally responsible architecture; the emotions and sensations that stir the people living on “Desert Earth” after a colossal environmental catastrophe; the consequences of human presence—these are the new world’s building blocks.

The participating artists are Svetozara Alexandrova, Ivo Bistrichki, Rada Boukova, Petko Dourmana, Nikola Enchev/Juliana Mori, Simeon Stoilov, Krassimir Terziev, Sofia Hristozova/Marta Dimitrova, Veronika Tzekova

ZIMMER FOR FAB
Noa Giniger
Hoofdstraat 70 Beetsterzwaag www.kunsthuissyb.nl

In SYB, Noa Giniger turned the intimate creative process inside out and opened her studio doors. Six artists from different countries stayed with her - each one for one week - for an in-situ dialogue in her ‘Zimmer’, or holiday home. By doing so, Giniger bridged the physical distance that normally seperates them. The outcomes of these encounters have been interwoven into a more universal discourse via a weblog; a platform that celebrates the essence of a process. This ongoing mosaic registers the isolated shared time and reveals the exchange of thoughts and emotions that took place during the residency.

The second stage of the project is an artist book that will include works created by each artist thus showing their uniqueness as well as their overlap. The book is planned to be published later this year.

The invited artists are Gaelle Boucand (FR/DE), Anat Spiegel (IL/NL), Halina Kliem (DE), Shana Moulton (US), Keren Benbenisty (IL/FR) and Rada Boukova (BG/FR)

On Sunday February 13th, Noa Giniger will present her project with a Q&A. Her six guests will be present, physically or virtually.

Noa Giniger (Israël, 1977) received her diploma in 2005 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, spent a one-year exchange in the School of Art at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (USA), and in 2008, completed her two yearresidency in De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Her work has been in numerous exhibitions in the Netherlands, Germany, Israel, France, Belgium, Canada and more. Giniger lives and works in Amsterdam and Tel Aviv.

This project is co-financed by the Mondriaan Foundation, Fonds BKVB and Intitut Français de Pays-Bas.

La Gamme Pérouse
du 20 novembre au 11 décembre 2010

Vernissage samedi 20 novembre 2010 de 14 h à 21 h

M.O.H.L.L 148
1, passage Louis Daquin
93300 Aubervilliers

Nadia Agnolet, Felicia Atkinson, Roxane Borujerdi, Anne Bossuroy, Rada Boukova, Guillaume Constantin, Cécile Dauchez, Edgar Guilmoto, Christian Hidaka, Benjamin Hochart, Charlie Jeffery, A&F Lamarche-Ovize, Julien Pastor, Nicolas Roggy, Maxime Thieffine et Sarah Tritz.

"La Gamme Pérouse est une exposition en appartement, plus précisément dans l’atelier-appartement de Florentine Lamarche & Alexandre Ovize situé à Aubervilliers dans les bâtiments de la cité Renaudie. Conçue conjointement par Alexandre Ovize et Maxime Thieffine, elle réunit une quinzaine d’artistes, venus de divers horizons dont nous avons sélectionné deux œuvres (ou un diptyque) sur le principe d’une collection privée, temporaire et capricieuse, subjective mais construite sur des affinités formelles, qui permettent ensuite un jeu d’accrochage et de mise en scène dans l’espace de vie et de travail de la famille qui habite cet espace inchangé. Il s’agit de confronter les dessins, collages, peintures, objets, sculptures et vidéos à l’espace réel, ordinaire, à un espace usagé et chargé affectivement, propre à des personnes aimant vivre parmi les œuvres. Nous voulions voir et éprouver comment vivent les œuvres hors du cube blanc, ces œuvres-ci et faire partager cette expérience."

Invisible?

L’idée serait à la dimension, non pas d’un invisible de fait, comme un objet caché derrière un autre, et non pas un invisible absolu, qui n’aurait rien à faire avec le visible, mais de l’invisible de ce monde.
Une partie du visible est cachée, il se dérobe au regard, il est, le plus souvent, non pas ce qui est vu, mais ce qui n’est pas vu. Par un curieux renversement de perspectives, le visible est invisible, c’est l’invisible qui serait vu.
Le visible est voilé par le filtre des préoccupations et des significations. À l’inverse, sont vus les symboles invisibles, montrant ce que chacun voit sans voir, ainsi on rematérialise l’apparence et révèle la puissance de l’esprit.
