Trading Places will work as a projection of an impending landscape, when art follows business models, corporate strategies or corporate aesthetics to sustain and fund art practices, as this could soon to become the only feasible way progress in an austerity lead environment.

1.1-what_we_do.jpg

Today I arrived at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop where I will be artist in residence for the next three months.  It’s exciting times with this residency fitting in-between the Into the Wild residency at the Chisenhale Art Place.  After working handout overseas to fund this six month period of research of making it has finally arrived.  So far so good and I can only say the next few months should prove fruitful with a new body of work in the making.

I will have time to update this blog which for the last year has not been given much attention.  For those that are also interested in what is offered here at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop please follow the link as its an amazing facility.

My work “Concept Of Since – 24 Options”, is currently part of an exhibition curated by Robert Montgomery.  The exhibition is at the Lights of Soho gallery in London.

los-open-sub-7-10-2015

London’s home of creative neon and light art formats is opening its doors for its inaugural open submission show entitled “Signs that Say What You Want Them to Say…” Lights of Soho will be accepting submissions from new and established light artists for a show that will be guest curated by artist Robert Montgomery.

Taking inspiration from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Lights of Soho is inviting young artists who use light as a medium in their work to exhibit alongside established names in light art. Lights of Soho curator Hamish Jenkinson states, “Lights of Soho is more than an art gallery – it is a window of opportunity for young artists to get involved in the art scene. With this show, I’m hoping that we can reach artists who are well into their craft or just discovering it. I’d like to show young artists that art is a democratic experience and that they too can be featured in a London gallery.”

Having started his career off by vandalising billboards and bus stops with his poetry, Robert Montgomery directly communicates with his audience through text and light. Inspired by Roland Barthes and Guy Debord, Montgomery has paved the way for young artists to write their own story. Creating large LED light pieces with his poetry, Montgomery has seen his works showcased around the world including the Kochi-Muziris Biennale in India and a current project which hijacks an entire city block in Seattle.

Montgomery says, “When Bruce Nauman made his seminal artwork in neon “The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths” in 1967 it represented the beginning of a kind of democracy. Artists, for the first time could now hijack a medium previously only the domain of commercial and corporate voices, and begin to say much more interesting things. When I was a teenager I was obsessed with the pure form of commercial signs. I would fill rolls of film on the family holiday camera photographing the neon signs on abandoned petrol stations in France, and endure the blank looks of my father as he returned from Boots later with far fewer smiling family portraits than he expected, “why would you take so many pictures with no one in them son?…. Jeez, what a waste of money.” I knew that as soon as I had any money of my own I would make my own signs saying the most whimsical things possible. Perhaps even something as whimsical and useless as poetry.

In 1992 Gillian Wearing made the important piece, “Signs that Say What You Want Them To Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You To Say”. This was a lovely and delicate artwork about democracy, and the idea of an open exhibition of light art takes its inspiration from Wearing as much as from Nauman. In an ideal world we would give the billboards back to the people and everyone could write their dreams in neon. “

“Constructed culture sounds like conculture” at Ellis King, Dublin

February 26~2015

9.-Adrien-Missika-Ultimate-Thrill-2-2015

“Constructed culture sounds like conculture” explores the practice of five international artists, their individual approaches to storytelling, formally and conceptually and how the artworks they produce suggest a narratative world with its own set of rules, a constructed environment. When using the term “constructed”, one is prompted to think of a conculture or fictional culture. Constructed Culture is not synonymous with what social anthropologists define as a cultural construction; a shared understanding of some aspect of the world that exists because the people of a specific culture acknowledge and understand that thing to exist. Constructed culture sounds like conculture examines the work of five practices using various techniques to illustrate their individual, constructed worlds, which emerge out of their subjective and uncondensed experience. These experiences range from political investigations into a cultural dream, formal breakdowns of architectural elements, romantic journeys into the tropical and wild, to interests in social codes and re-writing the codes of a rollercoaster landscape.

Darren Bader, Mia Marfurt, Adrien Missika, Lydia Ourahmane and Tabor Robak all integrate popular images in their works, in which glimpses of daily life and banal social observations help building narratives where traveling to exotic destinations, computer gaming, formalism, art history and mystic afterlives become the doors to an alternate existence. Such “pop” images are tightly edited in order to shape the story intended to tell, and influence its interpretation, and often propagate notions of home, identity or (be)longing.

Curated by Samuel Leuenberger.

Elín Hansdóttir
SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF

KW Institute for Contemporary Art
KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e.V.

Auguststraße 69
D-10117 Berlin

15. 3.– 25. 5. 15
Exhibition / 1+2
Opening: Saturday, 14.3.15, 17–22 h

For SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF Elín Hansdóttir produces a site-specific work, which uses the architecture of the former margarine factory as a starting point for a spatial and filmic installation.

Hansdóttir places the viewers in the spotlight of her cross-genre installations. Over the past years, her artistic practice has shifted from sculptural concepts to dynamic spatial arrangements, which incorporate sound and light, but also address the changes in the viewers’ perception through their own movements as essential elements. SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF is the first work by Hansdóttir in which the filmic experiment plays a key role. Employing acoustic and optical effects as well as architectural elements, her works explore the potentials and limitations of spatial experience.

SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF is funded by Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg. With additional support from the Icelandic Visual Arts Fund, the Icelandic Art Center, the Embassy of Iceland, and the Muggur Travel Grant.
