I recommend….Mat Collishaw at Blain/Southern Gallery
this show contains an extraordinary 3d zoetrope sculpture that is perfect preparation before Paul Tarrago’s screening seminar on ‘the single frame’
7 April 2017 – 27 May 2017
4 Hanover Square
London W1S 1BP
Collishaw worked with evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller – whose theory is that the origins of art stem from natural instincts of courtship and reproduction – to produce the title work and centrepiece of the exhibition. TheCentrifugal Soul is a sculpture in the form of a zoetrope, a pre-film animation device that produces the illusion of motion through rapid rotation and stroboscopic light.
In The Centrifugal Soul, Mat Collishaw’s exhibition at Blain|Southern, the artist presents new sculpture, installation and paintings. Drawing on various forms of illusion, the exhibition explores ideas of superficial truth and the erosive effect of our primal urges for visual supremacy.
This is Wolfgang Tillmans’s first ever exhibition at Tate Modern and brings together works in an exciting variety of media – photographs, of course, but also video, digital slide projections, publications, curatorial projects and recorded music – all staged by the artist in characteristically innovative style.
Danish artist Joachim Koester transforms the galleries with an immersive installation comprising 16mm film projection, digital video, photography and audio works. Collectively, they span the last 12 years of his practice, revealing wide-ranging fascinations held together by a persistent enquiry into the boundaries of apparent reality and a quest to uncover hidden aspects of perception.
For New York-based artist Amie Siegel’s first solo show in London, the South London Gallery presents recent works which explore the mechanisms through which objects become imbued with meaning. Known for her layered, meticulously constructed works that consider the undercurrents of value systems, cultural ownership and image-making, Siegel works across film, video, photography, performance and installation.
more of Jennet’s recommendations… this one.. should be fun
Navigate a succession of surreal and theatrically staged scenes as you embark on a journey conjured by one of the contemporary art world’s most exciting and innovative artists. From a pair of singing running shoes to a depressed hypnotist and a talking goat, Bedwyr’s curious and often subversive internal dialogue plays out along the Curve’s space in this fantastical installation
Fact & Trouble is an exhibition by American artist Martine Syms that examines the space between lived experience and its representation. Syms’s video series Lessons (ongoing), on view at the ICA, is a long, incomplete poem in 180 sections. Each piece is thirty seconds in duration and articulates a lesson from the tradition. One of these lessons is painted on the gallery walls. The videos use the idea of inheritance as a departure point, simulating the private-public unconscious of television shows, advertisements, animated GIFs, police cams, surveillance footage, Vines and other digitally-circulated formats.
‘THIS IS A VOICE’- looks inside vocal tracts, restless minds and speech devices to capture the elusive nature of the human voice.
This exhibition explores how the unique grain of our voice locates us socially, geographically and psychologically and how the voice is utterly flexible and can be altered with treatment and training.
Designed as an acoustic journey, the spotlight is cast on the meaning and emotions conveyed through the patterns of rhythm, stress and intonation. Non-verbal forms of communication are emphasised, revealing the power of the voice before and beyond words.
A major exhibition bringing together over 100 works to show the impact of computer and Internet technologies on artists from the mid-1960s to the present day.
It’s a pity that it is their ‘paying show’ this year- (Student price £9.50) but I expect it will have a lot of seminal work in it. It will probably be quite overwhelming.. so allow enough time to smake your visit. Would be great if some PTBM body wanted to do a blog post on this! As it is really relevant to our pathway…
