Ela tem armadura, suas raízes são expansivas, traz na voz, na vida, poética, estética. O cinema agradece!

” Porque é verdade que aquilo que chamamos paisagem se desenvolve em torno de um ponto, em ondas ou em vagas sucessivas, para voltar a se concentrar sobre esse único objeto, reflexo no qual vêm se dar, ao mesmo tempo, a luz, o odor ou a melancolia” Anne Cauquelin_ A Invenção da paisagem


The Oker River is transformed into a screen on which contemporary art is projected. At the same time, some of the artists utilize the water as a mirror in which their work is quite literally reflected. Thus individual works in the form of a still life are represented again in this year’s light trail, but also, for the first time, serial elements, which define the course of the river through the city, use light to provide orientation for the observer, and simultaneously display the multifacetted nature of the urban landscape. Like its predecessors, this trail aims to be more than an exhibition – it also seeks to improve the quality of the urban space as an expression of cultural policy.”

Ao misturar fotografias com suas ilustrações digitais, o designer russo Tebe Interesno cria uma espécie de realidade paralela, onde criaturas espaciais regam nuvens, monstros enfrentam policiais, grafiteiros pintam um arco-íris e peixes cruzam o céu de alguma cidade. Confira seu onírico trabalho:

For the opening show at Essays and Observations, we decided to ask some artists to show us what their position was vis-à-vis the plinth.

If one follows Marcel Broodthaers -and some others- in considering all visual art production to have an object status (with the exception of film and text): then what is the position of the plinth, so obviously also an object, so often taking a ‘servile’ position to what is placed on top of it? Many artists, some curators, have attempted to integrate the work and its support structure: whether frame, framework, exhibition architecture, or plinth. But equally many, some, appear not to have even considered these questions, happy that a ‘clear’ and conventional background to their work will expedite its positive reception. We at Essays and Observations wonder at this attitude and are tempted to call it ‘laziness’ (although we ourselves do not know even what this ‘laziness’ could mean, so we’re working on a show about it for next year).

We invited the following people to show us what they think: Albrecht Schaefer, Ben Carter, Celine Condorelli & Gavin Wade, Ivan Seal, Jacqueline Doyen, Kane Do, Tommy Stockel and Wolf von Kries.

To make it easier, or harder, we arranged to get plinths that had been used in an institutional context: 3 from Hamburger Bahnhof, and 5 from the Neue Nationalgalerie. And the show is somehow split- we have about 50 per cent of what has been called ‘institutional critique’, whereas others have come up with something that is often called ‘formal critique’. In some cases this split cannot be so easily discerned, and creates in us a sense of uneasiness which we welcome.

We must here express our profound thanks to Lutz Driever of the Verein der Freunde der Nationalgalerie, and of course the artists listed above for making this show possible. In addition, all the people who took time out to help us with the extensive renovations of the former-shop in Berlin Wedding that has become Essays and Observations. You know who you are.
