The fundamental issue of Purim is the question of appearance and of internal reality. On this day, we read a text called the Megillah of Esther, whose content should practically be censured for underage persons. Estelle Hanania lives and works in Paris. My work consists of fragments reconstructed from memories, dreams and surroundings where past and present no longer work as isolated units. My overall process is my own game of telephone, where I move between different mediums and techniques. Something that started out as a collage on paper might become a sculpture and later a painting from another point of view, constantly changing in the search for the right medium and size for each piece.
These changes in material, size and technique always involve a translation in process. During the process the qualities change but also how I think about the piece. Wild and free as we can be, thick and red, coming together, pulsating now and for ever full frontal and down through a hole, revisit the darkness, black is low changing colors, moving by, a couple steps further and you will roll over let all tears sail away when the horizon come closer, memories fade and the sun keeps us pale. Chris Duncan is an Oakland-based artist who employs repetition and accumulation as a basis for experiments in visual and sound based media.
Suzy brilliant debut as a concrete poet. A few photographs has randomly sneaked in the bootleg. I have a decent amount written already but I think creating under the circumstances of living in the woods would be really nice. Flaunting otherness, the alert reader can follow a clerk of The Land of Sculptures whilst he encounters the pretty faces of The Painter, The Foreign Painter, The Tyrolese Painter and other people doing art.

CAC, Vilnius 25 Nov. Curated by Nieuwe Vide. Treignac Project, Treignac 31 Jul. Curated by DATE. La Cambre, Brussels 12 Oct. This books articulates her unique way of working through images and fiction: the painting and drawings will discuss the codes of improvisation with objects, sculptures, persons, landscapes. One inside the other, as some kind of surrealistic russian doll. As a statement disguised in a poetic novel, everybody is a foreigner, camping on some perishable and transitory spaces. The fiction allows the inner voices to become images and the archives of the pieces to shift into characters.
Loops, distortions of the reality, imaginary meanings are playing together. The books becomes a proper and new territory where art forms stand up and speak for themselves, where genres are shifting in a joyous revolution. His films, photography, publications, and installations are intimate documents of his extensive travels, collages of encounters that form spontaneously interconnected narratives.
By overlaying and collaging his own photographic material, he makes associations with pop and cult imagery, opening up possibilities for interpretation. Printed onto perforated vinyl and glued onto standard plywood, or onto rocks bought by the artist at flea markets in Arizona. He frequently collaborates with his brother, Andrew Sutherland, and with the Brooklyn-based collective, Still House Group.

Peter Gizzi was born on August 7, , and grew up in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. He has also published several limited-edition chapbooks, folios, and artist books. His work has been widely anthologized and translated into numerous languages. How to be unsettled and in the meantime on site, connected to the landscape, ping-ponging from music to poetry, inside and outside the gallery space and the book form. Blurring everyday the frontier between genres, this book conceived as an on-site exhibition presents found images, sculptures, poetry and painting.
Anne Laure Sacriste is a paris-based visual artist. This is her simultaneous subversion of the ideals of classical clarity and analytical decoding: we can see only thanks to blindness and dazzlement. Horvitz uses art books, photography, performance art, watercolor, and mail art to create his work. Juvenile Record is the new poetry book wrote by the Texan singer and musician Christina Carter. Like a prayer from the South, where voices and glasses are breaking in the heavy night, memories escaping like water, falling from the hands and evaporating in the air.
Objects, days, names, ages, charms, collected in the mind, folded, shouted or kissed, oftenly blessed, and sayed again. Christina Carter was born in the bayou city of Houston, Texas in November of , and co-founded the group Charalambides there in December of Ever since then, she has deeply mined her own vein of sound-as-music with voice, guitar, piano, and keys. Concurrent with her work as a musician, Christina has expanded her involvement in writing and visual art. A procession of giants in a field, a magician in a parking lot, a wild cave… The shadows of a singular identity are standing as a non-exotic setting yet revealing themselves as an hallucination.
Graduated from Les Beaux Arts de Paris, the award-winning photographer in Hyeres Festival Estelle Hanania is not afraid by the beauty, the pure aesthetics of the clothes or the masks. She knows how to keep a human distance to the subject, in a natural light, in silence.

Her photographs are portraits and landscapes of men becoming animals or plants, as many chimerical figures embodied in our absurd contemporary world. In the background appears a car, a road, a parking lot: such as banal infrastructures and unspectacular places. Extraordinary rituals required in an ordinary community, a present in syncope, nested in the reality as a strange lichen growing on a concrete wall.
Ryan Foerster is born in in Newmarket, Ontario. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Wrapping a wide part of the artist body of work from the last few years, this new zine by Ryan Foerster features and melts found images, solar eruptions, Germs art cover, poetry and diary photography. From raw and dark figurative photographs to abstract and repetitive shapes, these images connected all together by the book form may be frightening but most likely deeply narrative.
Reconstructed through the primordial forests — from the californian redwoods to the northern finland. A statement led by the experience of making sculptures and having drinks under a porch, drawing as making sandwiches, being in love and singing songs, watching tv shows and staring at sunsets. Both highly in the now and at the same time metaphysical. The Twenties are gone.
And thirties are opening their wild gates. She lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. She is a visual artist, an experimental musician and the co-publisher of the independent imprint Shelter Press. Her paintings, drawings, sculptures and musical compositions are mostly abstract. Her work takes its sources from the American tradition of painting Morris Louis, Cy Twombly, Richard Tuttle and from avant-gardes figures who worked on chance and randomness Fluxus, John Cage, La Monte Young… as much as feminist figures in music and art.
Utilizing envelope following, vocoder analysis and trigger sensing the recordings of these performances were analyzed and converted into control sources. These control sources were used to activate analog and digital synthesizing systems and functioned to trigger envelopes and gates, determine pitched materials and act as modulating sources for frequency and amplitude modulation. Ben Vida is a Brooklyn based composer, improviser and artist.
He produces compositions that utilize analog and digital synthesizing technologies and focus on aural phenomena and auditory illusions. Girls lying on concrete disonaurs are facing obsolete neon signs. Broken, knocked down, abstract, discarded, left there. The girls are naked, in black and white, static. The neons are coloured, saturated like comic strip boxes. Prehistoric monsters, mysterious beauties follow and merge with relics of modern cities. Metals, skins and stones collide. Pages unattached slide and mix to deceive time and order.
Their curves sketch infinity; their hollows end in, wisps of flesh, dark at times; their eyes pierce the image when they reach you. Waxy bodies drawing the image towards a less synthetic century. Bodies are framed, embedded and enclosed in a photograph. Caught in between limited spaces: in the depths of a boulder, on a rocky edge, on the top of a shelf.
Impossible to escape. Bodies and curios end their way here: still lives aiming at anthropomorphic shapes. In a haze of orange, green, yellow or blue—everything surfaces and evokes the colors of ancient masters. Another fact: these images are noisy. Noise, a misguiding word that silences light, and nourishes black and white for a richer silver print. These selfish pictures, pose, freeze out of a storyline. But they take everything they can from the present: urban oddities, the wanderings of a contempary eye, and fragments of a no longer ostentatious luxury.
These images, they steal everything: remnants of forgotten French films, some Garrel, some Rivette—but there is no Amour Fou, only an imposed distance. Are they found images? They become a new kind of daguerreotype. It takes us the past to progress. Light as feathers, round as breasts, these images are voluptuous, straightforward, they swallow everything.
Born in Paris in , Camille Vivier started her photography career as an assistant in Purple magazine. After studying at the Grenoble Fine Arts School and Saint Martins, she dedicated herself entirely to photography and works at the same time in the art and fashion worlds.
In , she was awarded the Villa Medicis international grant. Artists never stop exploring the approach they take towards their art. The mind state, the intention of thought that is present when creating a work of art is something that is continually revised and reaffirmed. But also some echos of John Cage, the Blackmountain College, and the beloved environmentalist Thoreau…. Julien Langendorff was born in Paris, France, in He also plays music in Pillars of Fire, a doom-psychedelic band formed with artist Jason Glasser and singer Matteah Balm, and plays and records solo under the name, Skate Witches.
It seems that a lot of artists myself included are attracted to counter culture groups from the past; hippies, goths, satanists, etc. For me these works create that feeling, they reference several times and things but still completely fresh. Dondoro is a photographic work born from the collaboration between Estelle Hanania and the famous Japanese puppet master Hoichi Okamoto.
Enigmatic creator who lived alone in the Japanese countryside near Nagano, he created hundreds of puppets for his own performances. He archived all his puppets since the late s. When Hoichi Okamoto used to slip behind one of its human-sized puppets to animate it, a confused game began between the master, the puppet and the photographer. Her stories develop beyond the confines of a studio or location shoot by integrating still life and landscape images, creating visual rhythm and narrative complexity. The Paris-based photographer has a background in graphic design, art direction and fine art.
Skip to content. About the book Photographies du soir consists of a series of images taken by Julien Carreyn between and About After studying photography, art and art criticism, Marcelline Delbecq gradually moved away from the image as such and now concentrates on writing. I was to come to the small town of Winschoten for a month and make the work for the exhibition. After staying in Holland for about a week, I became annoyed with the curators. From this annoyance I decided what work I would give to them for their exhibition. I was to disappear from Winschoten.
Obviously, I would not tell them any of this. So one morning I left. I went off as if I was going to a coffee shop to work on my computer. I had my laptop, a small amount of money in my pocket, my camera, my passport. I was wearing a light jacket, and also had my notebook and a book I was reading. In my room was my wallet with some money and all my credit cards and library cards and various other IDs. Please note this volume is in French. Profusely illustrated and very collectable.
