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).

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.

Net Work is an exhibition, curated by current PLATFORM artist in residence Gretta Louw , that  looks at work being made at the intersection of performance and net art. The emerging genre of ‘networked performance’ can make powerful statements not only about the development of art history, but also our relationship to technology, and the impact that this has on the direction that culture, society, the workforce, and psychology are taking.

The exhibition includes work by Gretta Louw, Luke Munn, Igor Štromajer, Annie Abrahams and plan b (Sophia New und Daniel Belasco Rogers), as well as a new project developed by Louw during her residency at PLATFORM: The Net Work Compendium is an evolving collection of short videos, from artists working with networks and performativity, offering viewers a unique introduction to this avant garde mode of art-making.

… howls into the space of the in-between …

Jasmina Založnik wrote an interesting text about “my work”. Printed and plastified it figures in my show Mie Lahkoo Pomagate (can you help me) , 21 October – 7 November 2014, Aksioma Project Space, Ljubljana.

Opening up a new zone for what was formerly called net art

“In the time satiated with hyperconnections, transformations of individual into dividual, and dispersed scenarios, which we skilfully manoeuvre through to pick out appropriate masks from a pool of supply, vulnerability appears to be crucial. It suggests a crisis of a certain diagram of sensitivity. And thus a multitude of its modes of expression and cartographies of meaning. As stated by Suely Rolnik*, refusal to be vulnerable stifles the desire to create and produces feelings of humiliation and shame that block vital processes. And this, of course, suggests that today the thematisation of encounter, chance, and responding to other beings is taking on also new dimensions. And precisely these dimensions are again and again, or better more and more, cropping out in Annie Abrahams’ work. It is not only about repeating the learned, fixed patterns of behaviour, even less so about an attempt to repeat. Rather, it can be perceived as a silent but distinct voice about potentiality – about diversions of our attention, our readiness to surrender, uncover, and know the potentiality of our behaviour and reactions. To overcome the established, prearranged models, we have to allow difference to step in. We have to see our own vulnerability, reveal the weakness, which seems to be more and more supressed, repressed … Take a step back, only to take a leap into the undefined, unknown, and unfamiliar. The world isn’t shaped – it is in the process of being shaped. In a process we enter as active participants. Indefiniteness, gapped with unfamiliarity, is perhaps scary, but at the same time endlessly exciting. The unfamiliarity of our own future. The unfamiliarity of any new and old relation. Instead of fearing or repeating them, the artist invites us to enter relations and situations attentively, to be able to discover and perceive new dimensions of potentiality. The beauty of an encounter, which is always hesitant, always open. It is an invitation.

Open structures and an invitation to enter. The artist’s work can thus be understood as “hacking”. An opening up of a new zone for what was formerly called net art. Which is now no longer caught in the virtual world and no longer investigates its impressions on reality, but howls into the space of the in-between, the real / the virtual, the past / the present. It calls for responsible, attentive, perceptive entering, reading, acting, reacting. Also when we are witnessing a past event, when we interpret materials, when we combine, connect, and “understand” them.”

Mie lahkoo pomagate? (can you help me?)

Solo exhibition
21 October – 7 November 2014,
Aksioma Project Space, Ljubljana
Tuesday, 21 October at 20h / opening and presentation. I will also be in the space on the 22nd, 23rd and 24rd from 3pm to 5pm. Recording sound, explaining, chatting.

Production: CONA  institute for contemporary art processing
Coproduction: Aksioma – Institute for Contemporary Art
Residency partner: JSKD and French Institute

The works presented in the exhibition Mie Lahkoo Pomagate? (can you help me?) investigate different attitudes toward language and problematize how its expressivity is structured when placed in a new environment.

The created pieces have an open structure and can be understood as a sort of “hacking”, through which another sphere of what used to be called net art is opened. This other zone is no longer caught in the virtual world, it does not examine its imprints on reality, but cuts through the space of in-betweenness, the real / the virtual, past / present. It calls for a responsible, watchful, and careful entering, reading, acting, reacting, even when we are becoming a witness of a past event, when we are interpreting offered materials, combining, connecting, and understanding them.

Recordings, drawings, a video and a poster of Encounter, edited recordings of Kaj misiliš s tem? What do you mean?, an art book from estranger to e-stranger, a skirt made by Irena Pivka, a deka, a poster from Huong Ngo, a song by Tožibabe, a video of my parents, relax.exe (projection), a chair, a table, a text by Jasmina Založnik, a soundpiece by Brane Zorman, a plant, another plant, another chair, plaster board, text on code and emotions (poster), Iloveyou.exe (copies). What language does it speak?

The exhibition was developed in collaboration with Maja Delak, Mojca Krisch, Huong Ngo, Irena Pivka, Brane Zorman. Thanks to: Milena Gros, Chantal van Mourik, Brida, Martina Ruhsam, Sunčan Stone, Igor Štromajer, Jana Wilcoxen, Jerneja Žganec Gros and Aleš Mihelič – Alpineon razvoj in raziskave, d.o.o
