3G Constallations #10 + méthodologie

One year ago we: the group 3G(enerations) Alix Desaubliaux, Pascale Barret and Annie Abrahams, started a research project called Constallations. Using challenges and surprises, we defied each other in nine sessions of what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory and Alix performative & collaborative explorations.

ISELP, Institut d’Art Contemporain, invited 3G to come to Brussels for their 10th, this time real-life, session.
Saturday, Mai 25, 16h you are welcome to meet the three artists and Sandra Bébié-Valérian of OUDEIS at the Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels.
Sandra will give a short talk where she analyses the project in the frame of OUDEIS’ Autorama project. Pascale, Alix and Annie will present their recently written Methodology of Constallations* and will try to translate it’s essence to the real space of the exhibition Waiting to blossom *Constallations by Pascale Barret.
Could be an object, a performance, a reading, a text, an installation …. or a mix of all this.

Constallations is devoid of a goal and has no predetermined path. Constallations is what we are when we give up our personal objectives and, when, based on our own history and skills, we tackle a challenge prepared by one of the group.
Constallations is made of travels through things one doesn’t control, of jumps in the void. Constallations is an exploration full of unexpected discoveries.

Constallations is a learning tool / a practice radically open to everything.
Constallations is a concrete utopia – on a small scale, and temporary, it must be said – but it is, and so carries a hope for a different society.
It’s a perspective.
Constallations is a path, an adventure, a chemistry, a soup that upsets habits and creates links.

* The Methodology of Constallations will also be available in English and French on the Constallations website after the 25th.

Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands

Nice to find out my work Being Human (1997 – 2007) is part of the Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands, yes!
With among others Michel Waisvisz, Martine Neddam, Peter Struycken, JODI, Peter Luining, Jan Robert Leegte, Steina, Jeffrey Shaw …

The Digital Canon was compiled by LIMA media art platform in 2018, in collaboration with Josephine Bosma, Martijn van Boven, Annet Dekker, Sandra Fauconnier and Jan Robert Leegte.
The primary objective of the project is to add these digital works to the collective cultural memory and to fuel the discussion about the selection and preservation of digital art. 

Experts from the field of digital culture selected twenty of the most prominent and influential works made on Dutch soil by artists who lived or worked here over a long period of time.

Being Human is the name of a collection of dynamic, interlinked, net specific works in which Annie Abrahams explores the possibilities and limits of online communication.

Web Retro – I only have my name.

I Only Have My Name | 나는 내 이름만 가지고 있을 뿐이다 (1999)
Annie Abrahams| 애니 아브라함스
will be presented in
WEB-RETRO / 웹-레트로 展
12 March – 9 June 2019.

web retro Seoul Museum of Art

This exhibition focuses on the World Wide Web, which has been fundamentally reconditioning communication, image production, consumption and artistic practice for the last 30 years, and revises the new arts that have been tried through the net historically.

An exhibition to commemorate the 30th anniversary of World Wide Web and to illuminate the works and activities based on the internet / experimental works of art using the internet as the form and environment of art.
The purpose of the online archive is to construct a topographical map that can explore the contemporary, cultural, and technological context of internet art, to supplement the exhibition of art galleries contextually and to share information about the flow with a longer breath. 

200 Works of 167 artists, ranging from past attempts at internet art to recent art works based on network and online, are classified by period to provide a foundation for deeper research.

De-centralized Web?

crac-banner_d

The Big Kiss (2008) and Angry Women (2012) are shown together with Michael Szpakowski’s, House and Garden (2009) during the Decentralized Web Summit in San Fransisco.

August 1st and 2nd,
San Francisco Mint,
88 5th Street, San Francisco, CA.

For Ruth Catlow, who curated Furtherfield’s screening room as a part of the “creative track” programmed by Sam Hart and Mindy Seu for DWS, these 3 artworks exemplify an attitude to artmaking particular to the Web before the great centralisation – these are works that speak from the origins of the P2P movement, a time in which communities began to form around new modes of networked interaction.

The Internet Archive’s Decentralized Web Summit is dedicated to creating the web we want [and the web we deserve]. We are convening those who want to build a web that…
Remembers. Forgets. That’s safe. That cares about people. That’s a marketplace. That’s a public square. That learns. That’s magical. That’s fun. A web with many winners. A web that’s locked open for good.

Cultural Matter: Olia Lialina

Olia Lialina‘s distributed Summer GIF will be exhibited in the Cultural Matter program of LIMA Amsterdam.

24 Nov. 2017 – 3 Jan. 2018.
24 Nov. 8pm. Opening.

I am happy to be distantly part of this – I am swinging with Olia since 2013 http://bram.org/olia/summer.

At LIMA, this leading artwork will see itself in a new site specific presentation that will be enriched with documentation material. During the exhibition two public events will take place to shed light on both the art historical and material implications of the work.

…. The animation’s 18 still images are located on 26 different websites, with each site redirecting the browser from one server to the next, displaying the images in sequence, thus creating a cross-domain animation. ….

Cultural Matter is a series of exhibitions and events that provides a platform for the international discussion of digital art and aims to develop new strategies for the presentation and preservation of these artworks.

London Art Fair, the Art Projects Screening Room,
Stranger Collaborations.
Curation Pryle Behrman.

Artists in the show:
Annie Abrahams (Angry Women Take 2), Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion (Glitter), Ruth Catlow (Time Is Speeding Up), Liz Sterry (Drinking Alone) and Michael Szpakowski (Shit Happens in Vegas).

Stranger Collaborations is an exhibition featuring artworks that in some way wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborations formed via the internet, showing how strangers can, sometimes even unknowingly, create an artistic partnership online.

Liz Sterry, ‘Drinking Alone with the Internet, Star Wars Edition, Take 1’.

The artworks of Annie Abrahams and Liz Sterry create temporary communities that are ‘safe spaces’ in which socially-proscribed behaviours – such as public anger or private alcohol consumption – are accepted and even embraced. Mark Westall, short interview of Pryle Behrman in Fadmagazine.

DOEK – archéologie des médias

secondeNature 19 mai, 19h, vernissage Archéologies des médias Exposition du 20 mai au 28 juin 2015 – mercredi au samedi de 14h à 18h Seconde Nature 27 Rue du 11 Novembre 13100 Aix-en-Provence

organisé par PAMAL, unité de recherche de l’École Supérieure d’Art d’Avignon

Y sera présenté le second original du logiciel DOEK fait par Jan de Weille en 1993/94 pour me faciliter la gestion de mon travail de peinture. Assez vite je l’utilisais aussi pour faire des dessins d’ordinateur indépendants. De ce logiciel il ne nous restait que 150 pages du listing rédigé en langage C. Grâce à Axel Airo-Farulla, Léo Battesti, Maxime Beau et Jérome Padilla, tous en licence pro à l’IUT de Arles, PAMAL est parvenu à réactiver le logiciel sur une machine Amiga 500. Dessins, constructions et murals fait avec la version première entre 1994 et 1996 à partir de http://aabrahams.free.fr/pageplu.htm.
