Xtracurricular: Jill Magid

Artist talk by Jill Magid. While on a research trip, Magid witnessed a mysterious shooting on the steps of the Texas State Capitol by Fausto Cardenas. Nothing is known of Cardenas’s motivations, but his gesture of shooting into the sky on the steps of the capitol, where he knew he would be immediately captured, reads symbolically as both tragic and poetic. Magid connects his action to Faust, an obvious but ultimately fruitful and complex avenue of exploration, as Goethe’s nineteenth-century drama traffics in similar themes of tragedy, psychology, and futility.

Crater New York: a Lunar Drawing Contest

An installation of the moon with colonies created by participating artists. Contestants draw from the model using either a computer or pen and paper, and in the end, a jury of esteemed experts chooses the winner. The winner receives a plot of real estate on the moon.

Nina Sobell (U.S.A.)

Sobell (USA) pioneered the use of video, computers, and interactivity in art, as well as performance on the Web. Since 1969, when she first used video to document participants' undirected interactions with her sculptures, she investigates the extent to which video enables her to manipulate the relation between time and space, and to create a vortex for human experience, in which the mediated event coincides with public experience, memory, and relationships.

Jean Shin (U.S.A./Korea)

Jean (USA/Korea) creates elaborate sculptures and site-specific installations that suggest imaginary communities through the use of accumulated cast-offs. Mary Ceruti writes, "Jean Shin uses discarded material (the excess, the forgotten, the no longer useful) in works that operate between abstraction and representation. Made from the remnants of contemporary urban life, Shin's sculptures form a sort of visual history and a social mapping."

Hermelinde Hergenhahn (Germany)

Hermelinde Hergenhahn's (Germany) drawing practice, which extends into the public space, has been refered to as “taking a line for a walk, but …a walk on the wild side – a persistent, jerky, scatological line whose erratic (and erotic) wanderings describe a world both comic and melancholic, quirky and unsettling…”. Displaced and off-center figures populate hundreds of small drawings. In her writings, films and installation work Hermelinde defines her approach as one of “critical nearness.”

Amanda McDonald Crowley, Executive Director of EYEBEAM Art and Technology center in New York, will raise questions, deliberate on the issues and propose some answers.

IRP Exhibition: Winter 2007

Location One presents the first of two exhibitions showcasing new work developed during their residencies by eight artists participating in the 2006-2007 International Residency Program.

dorkbot NYC – February 2007

The 28098th dorkbot-nyc meeting featured: free103point9, 31 Down and Brad Borevitz

Wu Ta-Kun (Taiwan)

Wu Ta-Kun (Taiwan) This Taiwanese artist creates videos and sound installations that attempt to convey physicality and sensation.

Yumiko Furukawa (Japan)

Yumiko Furukawa (Japan) Using words and images derived from literature, Yumiko creates unique video and sculpture installations and performances, which serve as a bridge between literature and visual arts.

Marlena Kudlicka (Poland)

Marlena Kudlicka (Poland) Marlena’s distinctive hybrid work mixes pared-down text with elements of architecture, painting and graphic design. Recently she has started integrating new technology into her work.

Lydia Venieri (Greece)

Lydia Venieri (Greece) Lydia is a multiple media artist whose work ranges from sculpture to installations incorporating painting, photography, video and the Internet. The fusion of mythological references with the everyday lies at the heart of her inspiration : “I create universes and landscapes where I project stories, conspiracy theories related to the media and mythological legends”.

Wang Ya-Hui (Taiwan)

Wang Ya-Hui (Taiwan) Wang,Ya-hui is primarily a video and video installation artist. Her work is driven by the exploration of human consciousness and examines how hidden or conscious changes of “being” are triggered through illusion and imagination. Her installations often make apparent shifts of perception and the passage of one visible reality to another.

Mayumi Nakazaki (The Netherlands)

Mayumi Nakazaki (The Netherlands) Mayumi refers to herself as a product of “Japanese-style Westernization”. She is interested in the notion of the “self that exists and interplays in between parallels”. Her practice is a balance between creating fiction out of reality and trying to elevate reality to the rank of narrative. She focuses on sociological and ethnological issues with subjects that deal with disguise, uniformity, identity, gender and more recently with behavioural and conversational patterns between people.

Yuki Okumura (Japan)

Yuki Okumura (Japan) Artist, writer and curator, Yuki Okumura probes the concept of identity and what makes the human “mind” and “self” unique. More recently, his art practice has expanded the realm of body art through the creation of discrete and precious works constructed from fingernails and saliva. Clearly intended to provoke, they retain a “trace of self” and exploit the uneasy tension between animate and inanimate. Another focus of investigation for Yuki is the development of connections between the banality of every day life with quantum theories, supernova explosions and the sublime.

Paololuca Barbieri (Italy)

Paololuca Barbieri (Italy) Paololuca’s projects investigate the boundaries between art and science, and foster synergies among a host of other disciplines (electronic music, lighting engineering, programming, drawing and video). The artist confronts these relationships with both analog and digital media. The transversal use of digital tools combined with an interdisciplinary approach lies at the heart of Paololuca’s practice.

Andrew Duggan (Ireland)

Andrew Duggan (Ireland) Andrew’s new media work and installations investigate the space between tradition (fact, folk/lore etc.) and contemporary space and time. He plays with cultural representations and perceptions and has presented many projects in the public domain. In Kerry, the Bán/Blanc series (2004) were projected onto a building reputed to have been prepared for the escape and arrival of Marie Antoinette. Andrew also frequently collaborates with dancers, musicians and cultural institutions.

Isabelle Ferreira (France)

Isabelle Ferreira (France) Isabelle’s work seems to prevail within that unlikely calm preceding the breaking storm. Her videos and sculptures - on occasion performance and installations- appear to leave time at a loose end: gesture and motion are slowed down and hidden rhythms revealed.

Geka Heinke (Germany)

Geka Heinke (Germany) Geka’s paintings depict everyday objects, such as wallpaper, lamps, floors and curtains. Isolated from their usual surroundings, the focus is on the serial structure of the objects and the tension that arises between spatiality and ornamental flatness. As perception and a layered reading of different spaces are simultaneously engaged, the artist’s loose, free-flowing technique guides the viewer into the depths of illusionistic space. Above all, the works transmit Geka’s viewpoint that our understanding of the world is ever more complex despite rapid technological and analytical advancement.

Simo Alitalo (Finland)

Simo Alitalo (Finland) Simo Alitalo studied philosophy and musicology at the University in Turku, Finland. He is currently working on his doctoral dissertation at the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki. As a sound artist and a radio producer, he develops experimental sound environments and narrative radioproductions that increase awareness of our surrounding soundscapes and their significance in our everyday existence.

Leesa and Nicole Abahuni (U.S.A)

Leesa and Nicole Abahuni (U.S.A) Leesa and Nicole Abahuni are artists and twins from New York who collaborate on the investigation of the senses and the exploration of the interrelationships between the visual, aural, and tactile realms.

Virginie Yassef (France)

Virginie Yassef (France) Yassef’s videos, photographs, sculptures and installations reveal the poetry of everyday life, emphasizing the subtle gap between perception and reality. Strangeness and often even the supernatural surfaces when and where one least expects it.

Bundith Phunsombatlert (Thailand)

Bundith Phunsombatlert (Thailand) In recent years Mr. Phumsombatlert has used printmaking processes in developing three-dimensional objects which are included in mixed media installations. Social issues and a critical awareness of our consumerist society are a dominant feature in his work.

Agnieszka Kalinowska (Poland)

Agnieszka Kalinowska (Poland) Kalinowska’s multifaceted video and installation practice investigates the observation of human behavior in extreme conditions and states of emotional and psychic tension. Her work makes visible the condensation of energy and the hidden potential revealed in such situations, such as fear or hope, in a contemporary social and political context.

So Youn Jeong (Korea)

So Youn Jeong (Korea) In her videos and installations, So Youn Jeong’s explores aesthetic issues relating to time and space, memory and identity. Recent works investigate the radical impact on the human spirit of an era driven by the obsession for speed in different times and spaces. The interactive nature of art constitutes another area of interest for the artist.

Natalie Bewernitz / Marek Goldowski (Germany)

Natalie Bewernitz / Marek Goldowski (Germany) Berwernitz / Goldowski have been working together since 2000. Their work focuses on tracing the possibilities and limits of depicting individual personality in its physical, spiritual and psychological dimensions. Mapping out the characteristics and peculiarities inherent to each individual is achieved in the form of interactive and multi-channel installations realized with computer-based self-generating sound creation in real time.

Cliff Evans – The Road To Mount Weather

This three-channel moving image installation (15 minute loop) is a personal artifice assembled from ideas and images found across the socio-environment of the Internet. Its form is reminiscent of historic epics as represented in cinema and in grand panoramic paintings, while also mimicking the ubiquitous technology used for website banner advertisements.

*IMHO* with Erwin Redl

Artist Erwin Redl creates large-scale LED installations and environments to investigate questions of phenomenology and perception in the age of the digital experience. He uses a metaphorical “reverse engineering” to re-translate the abstract aesthetic language of Virtual Reality and 3D computer modeling into powerful light-based architectural environments that can often quite literally destabilize the viewer’s perception of space.

Artistic creation is meant to be a fully sensorial experience in which the audience comes into contact with this alternative time and space that are devoid of wordly context.
