We have a new review up on the blog. ‘Exchanges’ @whitworthart . The fact that the art work changes throughout the exhibition is a new concept to me, and a strange one, but it’s definitely worth a visit. .

Jean Boghossian’s Buildling with Fire

A flock of very sweaty yet very chic stiletto-clad, expertly made-up and coiffed ladies, and dapper gentlemen, ascended the four floors of the old L’Orient-Le Jour newspaper building, in downtown Beirut, making up for a jarring dichotomy between their elegance and the  decrepitude of the setting. Standing on the rooftop overlooking Beirut’s outdoors shopping mall, they all proclaimed the climb very much worth it. The crowd were not dark tourists keen on exploring a wartime ruin, but there to visit Lebanese-Armenian artist Jean Boghossian’s Building with Fire, which currently occupies the four stories of the civil-war relic. […] Boghossian is known for his experimentations with setting canvas on fire, in conjunction with applying a variety of pigments to it, and sometimes cutting it and putting it back together, a technique several years in development, and which he had already presented in Beirut, most recently in 2015 at the Beirut Exhibition Center.  It is a creative gesture he conceives of as inherently constructive, and a  proof of fire’s non-violent potential:  his works, thus, would confront and perhaps counteract the other, destructive, “fire” of wars whose ravages the building’s bullet-riddled walls are the precariously standing witnesses. It is an ambitious — perhaps too ambitious — bet.
The sheer accumulation of canvases — at least one per room, in almost every one of the building’s innumerable rooms —  makes several series of abstract works intermingle, some more recherché than others in concept and composition, going from the gestural to the restrained to the geometrical. Certain works seem to seek to evoke landscapes, while other capitalise on rhythm or texture. Moods switch quickly: there is fury, calm, whimsy, and then anger and vertigo.

The @monumenta_leipzig exhibition has achieved something, that not even the german politics was able to: good images from Saxonia. „Gute Bilder aus Sachsen“ is the headline of a 4 Pages (!) article in @focus_magazin describing the show as „The most interesting exhibition in Germany“ and as a key moment of arts & culture currently in Germany
Respect & power for all the artists and the Monumenta team - true & dedicated exhibitions can move the society!

Thanks to the fabulous Will Yeoman #willyeo21 arts writer and book editor For reviewing my exhibition #earthlines at #lintonandkaygalleries #oldaberdeenplace #westperth #art #exhibitionreview #pertharts #earthlines #thankyou #westernaustralian #notbadperth

국현 과천은 내가 정말로 사랑하는 장소..구름이 끼면 낀대로, 풍광 그대로 다 가져가고 싶은 곳이다. 이렇게나 아름다운 플레이스에서 일하는 직원들이 전체적으로 경직된 분위기를 뿜는 이유는 잘몰겠찌만 오랜만에 미간 주름펴고 힐링하고 왔다.
p.s 박이소 전시는 두번 세번 추천 드림. 전시된 작품과 아카이빙을 보기 좋게 정리해두었고 별도의 해설없이도 이해를 돕는 자료가 많아서 자유관람해도 충분히 무방함. 일반인이 보면 더 좋을 전시라고 생각이 드는 것은 예술이라는 장르에 국한되는 내용이 아닌 시대적인 역사공부도 된다는 것. 그리고 가장 중요한 것은 예술가의 역할은 무엇인가에 대해 고찰 해볼 수 있는 전시라는 것.

To Build and to Destroy:  Josef Koudelka’s The Wall / Beirut at Dar El-Nimer, Beirut
Veteran Czech-French photographer Josef Koudelka’s camera connects two places, two times, and two tragedies. The first one takes place in Israel and Palestine, and is symbolised by the construction of the wall separating them …

The second tragedy is the 1975 Lebanese war, through a series of pictures of Beirut that struck a very personal chord. The year was 1991, and I was in Beirut for the first time. I had not grown up in the war, nor had I experienced Beirut’s prewar so-called glory days. To me, Beirut was not as much a city as it was a destination, a place, which we were promised we would go to someday.

This is downtown, I was told. It was strange, dirty and disconcerting. I wouldn’t dare ask, and no one volunteered to tell me, what it was like before, or why it looked that way — that, I understood, on the intuitive level of a young child. (The post-war collective amnesia was already in full force.) I wanted to know about the people who  lived in the ruins, and how and why trees grew amongst them. I wanted to know how exactly buildings got their holes, what made them crumble, and why no one had rebuilt them yet. I wanted to be lied to, told that all the buildings’ users and inhabitants were in fact safe, having escaped before the destruction.

Koudelka's pictures are photographs of my memories.  Of course, I never got as close as him to the heart of downtown, being only allowed to behold it from the window of a beaten-up car. Actually, I’m not even sure it was downtown they showed me. But I remember these pictures of a landscape of despair. They are memories of gaping wounds, but also, paradoxically, memories of postwar hope and opportunities.

"The sun and the moon reign over all of the work, emphasising the daily cycle of time. In a precise though rough-hewn way [Daniel Rios Rodriguez] uses coarse rope and nails to frame the compositions, and to define forms and areas within the compositions, producing an effect like cloisonné enamel writ large."–Aidan Dunne reviewing our current exhibition by #DanielRiosRodriguez in today's @irishtimes.
