From Within and Without

From Within and Without
29th October – 6th November

Exhibition surrounds the topic of identity in the state of flux. It invites to frame this body of instability in between the feeling of loss and destruction, and at the same time – with the spirit of liberation of movements, expressions and forms. While dealing with this existential question, it opens the playground of the limits of control.

Artists: Bani Abidi, Ginta Vasermane, Hund & Horn

Opening 29th October Saturday
17:00 – 20:00

Daily open
30th October 3pm- 6pm
2nd November 11am- 2pm
5th November 11am- 2pm

Artist Bani Abidi is a Pakistani contemporary artist. She has held numerous exhibitions and her works focused on political issues. She uses both photography and videos to make comments and critics on current politics and culture.

Ginta Vasermane is Amsterdam based artist from Latvia, graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academy and Netherlands Film Academy. While using mediums like moving image, film, installation and performance, her current works examines human behavioral and gestural codes in public places, our own created rules and roles, the relation of bodies to space and in diverse structures.

POSTURE

Person, in all its complexities, has so much more to reveal than we like or believe to accept. Influenced by its social surroundings, it acts and manifests itself in a certain way, tracing both: the norms of conduct and self – commitments. Somewhere at the intersection of common and private, object and subject, work and leisure, known and alien – the body moves. Looking at the body as a responsive form, Posture presents four artists with different perspectives on everyday choreography in various social settings, so playful and yet uncomfortable.

Artists:
ISABELLE WENZEL, GINTA VASERMANE, LUCIA NIMCOVA

Opening 9th July at 19.00

Open 9-31 July

The comfort zone of bureaucratic offices and gestural procedures comes into question with the Working Frames, a video installation by Ginta Vasermane. Here, seemingly improvised set of unpredictable movements in randomized spaces and situations, are rigorously repeated in continuous circles, bringing up front the absurdities and tragicomic aspects of human’s slapstick. Progression of forms and movements which shifts the most familiar image into the unknown, comes into play with the performance without an audience captured in the photographic work of Isabelle Wenzel. Picturing herself as headless model in acrobatic, against gravity positions, the artist studies her own bodily actions in between authentic experience and staged set up, fascinated with surreal outcomes of the figural moment. Juxtaposition of two times, the communist past and present days of Slovakian town Humenne, brings body to the work of Lucia Nimcova. In the video called “Exercise” she engages the neighbors from her hometown to replay for camera the physical training they had to obey under the soviet rule. Some twenty years after the fall of the regime, this – at first sight – light and funny reenactment traces back the influences of communist times commanding bodies to move, live and believe according to the state order of things.

ONE IS ALMOST NEVER PRESENT

Clément Cogitore / Ginta Tinte Vasermane / Lionel Rupp

One evening, four artists, four video installations and two short films, all with a remarkable perspective on bureaucratic systems to say the least. Expect security guards chasing cross bikers with a greasepaint addiction, a hunt for magical creatures, civil servants going berserk and a modern dance in honor of a celebrating factory. Alienating is a euphemism.

19 June – 28 June 2015

Opening: 19 June, 5 – 9 p.m

Person’s role, in all its complexities, is never sure or stable. Acting and manifesting itself in a certain way, it traces the relationships that individual has with his social and physical environment. Somewhere between the human’s outer and inner conditions opens a space of unfamiliarity, a place where we wonder.
