  • Jochen Lempert participates at Parliament of Plants II

    4 May — 22 October 2023


    With its Parliament of Plants exhibition in 2020–21, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein spotlighted a set of momentous issues facing current society. Parliament of Plants II continues this discussion.

    The exhibition Parliament of Plants II gives a voice to plants. It testifies to a new view of these beings, which are inextricably linked with our own survival. Over the past decades, a paradigm shift has been taking place in the sciences regarding our perception of plants, one that is also reflected in the exhibition’s artworks. Following on from Parliament of Plants (2020–21), the show develops a network of cooperations in a range of different disciplines, with guest contributions in the form of ‘inserts’.

    Parliament of Plants II demonstrates the principle of symbiosis as a societal counter-image to the parasitic handling of nature. New insights regarding the world of plants feature alongside the knowledge of Indigenous cultures, questions pertaining to colonial and contemporary history, the handling of resources or our perception of time. The crucial question is: how can we achieve a symbiotic coexistence in which human and non-human beings can learn from each other?

  • Dora García: “She has many names” at Muhka

    10 February — 21 May 2023


    The exhibition She Has Many Names by Spanish artist Dora García surveys some of the most important performances, drawings, installations, printed matter and films created throughout a career spanning three decades.

    Dora García’s practice relates to community and individuality in contemporary society, exploring the political potential of marginal positions, and paying homage to eccentric characters and antiheroes. These characters have often been the centre of her film projects, such as The Joycean Society (2013), Segunda Vez (2018) and Amor Rojo (2023). An essential aspect of García’s work is entanglement with political movements such as feminism, and the ways they occupy public spaces.

  • Peter Piller: “There are a couple of things that bother me”

    11 March — 4 June 2023


    In the spring of 2023, the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf will present the first retrospective in the Rhineland on the German artist Peter Piller (*1968 in Fritzlar), who has been a professor at the nearby Kunstakademie Düsseldorf since 2018, where he teaches a class in fine art.

    During his studies in Hamburg, Piller began working on the Peter Piller Archive, in which thousands of images and photos that he meticulously collected from sources such as magazines, the internet, postcards, and aerial photographs are organized, categorized, and assembled in series. His most important tools have always been his gift for precise observation and a subtle sense of humor, which allow Piller to discover serial, curious, and unusual elements in images that appear extremely banal and trivial, and to relate them to others. These include the aerial photo archive von erde schöner, based on 20,000 aerial photos and categorized into 23 series, which Piller has been working on since 2002.

  • Jochen Lempert participates at Nature Humaine

    11 November 2022 — 10 April 2023

    Group Show: Fondation Vincent Van Gogh, Arles

    For Vincent van Gogh, nature was not only one of the principal subjects explored in his art, it was also where he found a joyful and creative lucidity. Writing to his brother Theo from Provence in 1899, he declared: “I’m beginning to feel more the wholeness of the countryside in which I live.” Building on Van Gogh’s ambition to develop his work in direct connection with the living world, the thematic exhibition Nature humaine – Humaine nature looks at the different ways in which today’s artists take up the concept of nature in order to bear witness to the upheavals connected to our notions and representations of the living world.

    Exibition curators: Bice Curiger, Julia Marchand, Margaux Bonopera

  • Dora García: María Magdalena

    30 October — 31 December 2022


    The Santes Creus Monastery, founded in 1160, reflects the canonical model of the Cistercian monasteries, together with Santa Maria de Vallbona and Poblet.

    The work of Dora García (Valladolid, 1965) focuses on exploring the relationship between community and individuals and investigates marginal positions and forms of solidarity between minorities. In this sense, the figure of women focuses much of hes interests. The proposal to work at the Royal Monastery of Santes Creus derives from a series of images and representations found in the monastery, which paradoxically highlight the female presence in a Cistercian monastery of Benedictine monks: an altar of Mary Magdalene, capitals of cloister with the expulsion from paradise or the figure of a mermaid, the tomb of an abbot’s sister, the tombs of nuns and the tomb of Blanca d’Anjou and her mummy (who was thrown into a well and recovered).

    Hes intervention was presented on October 30 in Santes Creus and consists of 5 handwritten posters. Titled María Magdalena, the artist tells a fictional story in episodes that imagines Mary Magdalene as the founder of Christianity. According to the New Testament and several apocryphal gospels, Mary Magdalene was a distinguished disciple of Jesus of Nazareth and it is from a rather unique perspective that Dora García approaches her figure. His intervention can be visited until the end of 2022.

  • Ana Jotta: Une Chambre en ville and A comme encre

    8 October — 27 November 2022


    For the Festival d’Automne à Paris, Ana Jotta reinvented the space given to her by displaying her existing work alongside a selection of her summertime finds on the streets of Paris. When the exhibition opens, the artist disappears, leaving behind the magic of a “room in the city.” Visitors can delve into the unique, subtle universe of an interior design expert, soaking in a sarcastic, yet melancholic ambiance, replete with quirks and details. In parallel, the exhibition A comme encre (A as in “ink”) displays her printed work (artist’s books, posters, invitation cards, “footnotes”) at the Immanence center for the arts. This exhibition provides a key to understand Ana Jotta’s work and admire her creativity. The artist has always been very close to French culture.

  • Dora García: Language is Foreign

    16 September — 16 December 2022


    “Language is Foreign” is a quote taken from an interview with Ursula K. Le Guin which impressed me for its brevity, while still managing to express in few words a concept that has intrigued me for many years. It surfaces also in Lacan (“Language is work”), and Proust, with his famous quote: “Les beaux livres sont écrits dans une sorte de langue étrangère” (Beautiful books are always written in a sort of foreign language).

    Contrary to what common sense might suggest, language is not something made with an intention to communicate, for a sound or gesture to marry a concept to a thing, but rather something to inspire wonder at how the world is constructed, the greatest marvel of all being that we are both inside and outside of it. We do not speak, “language speaks” (Heidegger).

  • Jochen Lempert: Natural Sources

    10 September — 4 December 2022


    The exhibition Natural sources brings together a number of early series, such as The skins of Alca impennis, with the collection pieces Oiseaux-Vögel (1997–2004) and the recently acquired Ivy shadow and horse (2021), together with more recent works. For each exhibition Lempert selects works and installs them alongside one another without reference to any chronological hierarchy, but based on the context provided by the museum. He selects the photographs with great care, always seeking subtle associations and cross-references between adjacent works.

    Natural sources is curated in collaboration with Centre Pompidou in Paris, and following its exhibition in Huis Marseille it will travel on to C/O Berlin.

  • Iñaki Bonillas and Hans-Peter Feldmann in “Earth: A Retrospective”

    7 July 2022 — 8 June 2023


    “Earth: A Retrospective” shows the Collection Per Amor a l’Art as a “creative geography” -an editing concept developed by Lev Kuleshov, designed to collide shots from different places to generate a new seamless landscape where the narrative takes place. With this project, El Ultimo Grito looks at the Earth from an indeterminate point in a future space-time. A point where our memory of the Earth is broken and our only link with it is a collection of images where meaning and signifier are blurred; where our gaze romanticizes them in narratives that seek to find a meaning beyond their historicity.

  • Jochen Lempert at Centre Pompidou

    11 May — 25 September 2022

    SOLO SHOW: Galerie de photographies, Forum –1, Centre Pompidou, Paris

    This retrospective exhibition presents three decades of work from Jochen Lempert (born in 1958, lives and works in Hamburg). As a trained biologist and dragonfly specialist, it was only in 1989, at the age of 31, that he began his career as a photographer, after a fruitful period with the experimental cinema collective Schmelzdahin [Melt Away]. This scientific heritage underlies his artistic practice, marked by images of nature where the animal and vegetal go hand in hand.

  • Isidoro Valcárcel Medina: Arquitecturas Prematuras

    10 May — 28 September 2022

    SOLO SHOW: Azkuna Zentroa, Bilbao

    “Premature Architectures” comprises a collection of town planning and building proposals drawn up by Valcárcel Medina between 1984 and 1992 which, to quote him, “evidence the absolute contradiction extant between the most immediate reality of urban space and the structures pretending to configure it.”

    This exhibition curated by Kristine Guzmán displays 30 of these projects where the 2007 National Plastic Arts Award winner reveals the capacity of architecture to propose different ways of living and uses of spaces, enabling debates affecting politics and society. The exhibition is completed with the “Premature Architectures” publication, which completely includes for the first time all projects on urbanism and architecture conceived by Isidoro Valcárcel Medina. It also includes the replicas the artist created of Ernst Neufert’s “The Art of Projecting in Architecture” the publication is on sale at dendaz, the Azkuna Zentroa shop; and at dendaz.azkunazentroa.eus.

  • Xavier Ribas. Talk at “Restitutions. Photography in Debt to its Past”

    3 May 2022

    Conference cycle directed by Carles Guerra: Fundación Mapfre, Barcelona

    The visual history of sodium nitrate, also known as saltpeter and Chilean nitrate, is visible in a number of photographic albums compiled by sodium nitrate businessmen who were mostly of British origin. The albums form a photographic registry documenting the process of sodium nitrate extraction in the Atacama Desert between the decades of 1870 and 1920. This legacy, which is preserved in the archives and libraries of Chile, exudes capitalist and colonial rhetoric. The question we are posed is: how do we approach these photographic albums critically? How is it possible to recount the experience of sodium nitrate workers and their history of resistance from these images? How do we think of these photographs considering what was left out of the image? And, finally, how do we look at them from their historical outcome? As Andrea Jösch stated, these images anticipate a future of ruins and a coup d’état.

  • Ana Jotta in the Serralves collection: Mirmidão da Tragédia

    7 April — 25 September 2022

    SOLO PRESENTATION: Museu Serralves, Porto, Portugal

    The relationship between Ana Jotta (Lisbon, 1946) and Serralves is a long one. In 2005, the Serralves Villa hosted the exhibition Rua Ana Jotta [Ana Jotta Street] that consisted of a numerous, polymorphous selection of works complemented by the presentation of Mirmidão da Tragédia [Myrmidon of Tragedy] at the Chapel. At the time, nine of the elements that make up this piece were acquired for the Serralves Collection; the only plaster element was kept by the artist, and the remaining one by a private collector. Seventeen years after the first and only presentation of this work, we have once again brought together the eleven masks of Mirmidão da Tragédia.

    Ana Jotta is the author of an eclectic and heterogenous oeuvre marked by an attitude of freedom strongly linked to everyday life through objects, texts, ideas and, in this case, music that the author gathers and collects. The artist has a particular taste for the decorative arts, classically classified as ‘minor arts’, often bringing them into the artwork. The Greek masks in Mirmidão da Tragédia can be seen as a reference to the decorative masks from disparate origins that can still be found in many homes. However, like the title itself, they are above all a reference to Classic Antiquity and particularly to Greek tragedy, which dealt with fundamental human questions; Myrmidons were the Thessalonian soldiers who accompanied Achilles in the Trojan War; the name comes from the Greek word for ‘ant’: myrmex.

  • Peter Piller: When the Wind Blows

    12 March — 28 August 2022

    GROUP SHOW: Kunstn Haus Wien, Austria

    Air encloses the earth like a membrane. It is the medium of weather and the carrier of odours, sounds and aerosols that influence both climate and health. Air flows into our bodies with our first breath and with death we exhale our last breath. In the context of the current climate crisis, air pollution and storms as well as wind power as a renewable energy source play a role. The invisible element connects living beings, plants and places. The works of the selected international and Austrian artists of different generations aim to make this elementary, yet invisible element visually tangible. They deal with the most diverse aspects and meanings of air, wind and breath and examine their manifestations in ecology, science, politics, culture and mythology. From the life-giving air we breathe to the destructive power of the wind, art makes the great invisible visible in many different ways.

    22 international and Austrian artists make the invisible elements of breath, air and wind visible in different ways: Hoda Afshar, Bigert & Bergström, Julius von Bismarck, Olafur Eliasson, Karin Fisslthaler, Ana Grilc, Isabelle Ha Eav, Jana Hartmann, Ayumi Ishii, Sophie Jung, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Ulrike Königshofer, Eduardo Leal, Emily Parsons-Lord, Peter Piller, Werner Reiterer, Roman Signer, Lydia Simon, Ulay/Marina Abramović, Nadim Vardag, Niina Vatanen, Susan Walsh

    The exhibition When the Wind Blows is a cooperation with the University of Applied Arts Vienna.  Curators: Verena Kaspar-Eisert (KUNST HAUS WIEN) and Liddy Scheffknecht (University of Applied Arts Vienna).

    27 November 2021 — 20 March 2022


    The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía reformulates its collection with the aim of offering narratives and experiences that, without claiming to be exhaustive or categorical, talk about the present moment through a critical study of the common past. What prevails in this new presentation is not the chronological succession of events and works, but the relationships and genealogies from the present we can weave and reveal. In this way, eight thematic episodes are proposed that are open to flexible temporalities and interdisciplinary approaches, and that can be linked to each other while generating new stories.

  • Ana Jotta: O pequeno mundo

    16 October — 31 December 2021

    GROUP SHOW: Culturgest, Lisbon

    O pequeno mundo (The Small World) is a group exhibition that brings together paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations and photographs by 24 Portuguese artists, including many of the major figures from the Portuguese art scene in recent decades. This exhibition consists of a diversified group of works that evoke one of the most distinctive features of artistic practice: the possibility – the vocation – of creating peculiar worlds, in-between worlds, quasi-worlds, parallel alternative and projective worlds that question the realities in which we live. Accordingly, artists were chosen who have distinguished themselves through their profoundly idiosyncratic nature and the way in which they construct mirror worlds, creating fields open to the imagination, exploring the transfigurative capacities inherent in the artistic process, understood as a privileged way of transforming and converting some things into others, and changing the status and symbolism of what is in front of us. Curator: Sérgio Mah
