Cycle   New window
Date: Thursday, 21 Aug 2014 18:02
A single provocative question provides the common thread connecting works in the Cycle exhibition which, starting August 23, will occupy the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil in São Paulo in two stages, exhibiting anthological works by 14 artists of different generations and nationalities: the urgency and relevance of producing art from elements present in the world, attributing new meaning to materials, subverting meanings and reinventing ways of seeing and feeling things. A highlight of the 32nd Biennial's parallel circuit, the exhibition aims to establish a sort of bridge between a founding moment of contemporary art—the creation of the first ready-mades exactly a century ago by Marcel Duchamp—and the fertile reinvention of this type of operation today.

The show touches upon a variety of inter-related topics and issues, which include the nature and uses of public space; art in public space; the individual and shared body in public space, both static and in movement; and the relationship between the fleeting materiality of the body and the more permanent materiality of sculpture.

YDRAH 8K, presented by the Künstlerhaus KM– , is an exhibition of new works by the artist K8 Hardy (b. 1977 in Fort Worth, Texas; lives in New York). Her works of art garner performative energy from various fields and studies, frequently from the area of fashion, for example, and generally from current forms of representation and modi of self-presentation in digital-based social networks. In the process, she avoids committing herself to a single artistic medium, eludes artisanal virtuosity in photography, sculpture, and video, and produces as if drawing on a gigantic maelstrom of self-documentation and fashionable, queer-visionary transformation of identity.

Art Sonje Center presents Sung Hwan Kim's solo exhibition from August 30 to November 30. This exhibition introduces Kim's art as a systematic integration of video, drawing, installation, architecture, and performance into a single exhibition space. The title of the exhibition, Life of Always a Mirror, is a play on words in Korean on a Korean elementary school textbook's title, Joyful Life. This method of education merges music, art, and physical education into a single subject as a didactic gesture in public education that teaches the youth not only knowledge but also the way they should lead a joyful life.

To The Square 2 (#TSQ2) re-invigorates the question of public space as a crucial locus for the articulation of the political and the art of protest. After the protest movements which broke out in capitals across the world from 2011 onward, we live in a period of reactionary politics and at times violent repression. The question today is, what would it take for people to go To The Square 2—that is, to take to the streets again? Do we need to see heightened extremes of economic inequality, ecological catastrophes, raw racism or an infinitely bigger "big brother"? Where are all those people who took to the square: pacified, in prison, in exile? For where did it all come from, and where does it go—that revolutionary energy? TSQ2's curators have commissioned new works by artists deeply involved in forms of resistance and movements "to the square" to grapple with these questions: Egypt's famed and much-loved street artist Ammar Abo Bakr (Luxor/Cairo); Núria Güell (Barcelona), joining the project in absentia (as usual) from Cuba, with interventions in Europe's economic dislogic; the renowned Palestinian artist Khaled Jarrar (Ramallah), who has defeated Israel's travel ban to create a public performance seeking 50 volunteers to match his 50-army-uniform-strong installation; Vladan Jeremić & Rena Rädle (Belgrade), whose biting political satire, also seen in ArtLeaks (Jeremić is a co-founder), is uncomfortably reminiscent of 1914; Nikolay Oleynikov (Moscow), whose mobile "Radio Pravda" is an agitprop broadcast-collage in memory of the likes of Grosz and Benjamin; the urban transformers Raumlabor (Berlin) whose mobile cinema-theatre will stage interventions with Helsinki's citizens; and the sincerely hilarious ZIP Group (Krasnodar) and its "wild constructivism" in the centre of Lasipalatsi Square.

Frozen at full speed in vibration between two and three dimensions, the objects and images by artist Helen Marten proliferate with models and motifs, which define the physical and linguistic limits of everyday life. In acts of jigsaw and camouflage, the recognizable is often shifted into a sense of immediate fuzziness. Both delicate and programmatic, the relationship between image and concept is therefore dependent on a sense of unfolding logic.

Total Body Conditioning is an exhibition by Mika Tajima comprised of three scenes—display, work, and fitness—that invoke technologies developed to control and affect the body. These are techniques that shape bodily experience of time and space, taking the human body as a target of power. The works in the exhibition include Jacuzzi hot tub painting objects, a series of abstract woven textile portraits, and transparent paintings set to changing ambient lighting and sound sequences. Each scene in the exhibition traces the management of the body in different spaces and temporal contexts from factory assembly line to therapeutic "after work" locations.

You Can Only Think About Something if You Think of Something Else was originally a line from the movie In Praise of Love (Éloge de l'amour), in which the director Jean-Luc Godard voiced the conflicting moment of our thinking, through the mouth of his character: One cannot but take reference from some other familiar objects when one is approaching the meaning of a specific one. The title can be taken as a metaphor for the unique situation of Times Museum. Being a concept realized as part of the 2nd Guangzhou Triennial, Times Museum was established in a residential neighbourhood as an art institution, and has actively engaged the local residents with something alternative to their quotidian reality.

The REAL DMZ PROJECT is a contemporary art project based on research conducted on the DMZ (demilitarized zone): the last relic of the Cold War. Having begun with a critical perspective on the ironies that surround the demilitarized zone, the REAL DMZ PROJECT has extended its parameters by experimenting not only with new productions and exhibitions but also via dialogue and discussions within the field of the humanities and social sciences. The long-term vision of the REAL DMZ PROJECT is to create a platform that not only supports a variety of research methods, but also ensures that such research is made accessible to both local and global communities.

Maria Anwander (b. 1980) from Vorarlberg knows how to kiss the walls of the most famous museums of the world so intensely that she not only leaves behind a work in the form of an illegal performance but, above all, questions the hierarchies in the art world. As a conceptual artist she dedicates the majority of her research towards so-called institutional critique, whereby, besides art institutions and their roles, she is also interested in the whole art system, especially artists.
