Photography and Abstraction

The exhibition is dedicated to the issue of abstraction in the field of contemporary photography. Riemer’s unique approach to photography creates atmospheres, which combine the past and the future. Whether the works were recently taken by him, or he used images from photo archives and added his own take on them, they all have a sense of timelessness, allowing for both the future and the past to enter.  

This exhibition is part of the 4th edition of the festival "Normandie impressionniste" and will take place in 3 locations:
Frac Normandie Rouen,
Micro Onde - art center,
and Centre Photographique d’Île-de-France

A catalogue - bilingual - will be edited by Hatje Cantz

Festival Young Creation

«En Être», is the title of the 70th edition of the Jeune Création association, which will take place from September 12 to 26, 2020. More than 190 artists of all generations take part in this exhibition circuit in four venues: the Cabane Georgina in Marseille, the Espace Niemeyer in Paris, the Jeune Création gallery in Romainville and the Thaddaeus Ropac gallery in Pantin.

?En être" (In Being) echoes desire, simplicity and doing things together. The responsibility of today?s world belongs to us. This ritual recreation, rich of 72 years of history, will sing the joys and anxieties of the world, its deaths and its rebirths. We will be fairies and we will be witches. With bits of string, it is possible to weave, create and gather what is scattered. The history of art, uncertainties, testimonies, transmissions, attempts, successes, mistakes confront dreams and reality. In what, with whom, how and for what reasons? The future will tell us.

For the occasion, Vincent Lemaire will present two installations at the Thaddaeus Ropac gallery that will connect the human body to the infinitely large and the infinitely small. The last three days of the exhibition (September 24, 25 and 26), visitors will be invited to participate in two creative protocols and to produce with the artist the extension of the works presented.


Curated by independent curator C. M. Turner (Camden, ME), Beacon is a conceptually driven group exhibition exploring objects, subjects, spaces, and ideologies that guide us through everyday life. Featuring ten artists of diverse backgrounds working with lens-based media, Beacon prompts viewers to consider the ways in which outside forces draw our attention and actions. From wayfinding to advertising, politics to place-making, Beacon explores both the unseen and well-known forces impacting ordinary existence.

here an installation view of the body of works ?it?s always summer somewhere?. A series that explores the double symbolic of the sea and proposes a contemporary mythology of exile.

Si le nez de Cléopâtre..

"Si le nez de Cléopâtre..." investigates the process of constant rewriting and ?correction? of history and the forces at play that take place during the process. The project centers on taking the figure of Cleopatra as a metaphor for this practice and looks at how, as a historical figure, her image has been defaced and ?refaced? in Western collective imaginary.

"Fifteen Pairs of Mouths"s an on-going project started in 2016 that investigates the new role of the hands as a vehicle for communication in the post-Internet age. For the last four years, I have been collecting more than 60 gestures of people texting on their phones. In the installation, fifteen of these pairs of dismembered hands casted in white plaster stand on steel mounts in various positions mimicking this new way of communicating. The phone itself remains absent; leaving a negative space in between the fingers.

Dancing while the earth is burning, curated by Valeska Hageney and Imke Kannegiesser

In Pompéry's flag, wind hits wet ink, which leaves the block letters unfolded. The quote quoted on the flag "I do not believe in wind force" takes on the experiment, what happens when the element (wind), which is questioned, even decomposed the statement. Pompey paraphrases the testimony of some climate critics yesterday who, despite the facts presented, continue to claim: "I do not believe in Climate Change". Pompery's experiment even goes a step further, or the statement "I do not believe in wind force" is doubly disproved, which will be exposed to the flag itself throughout the summer of 2019 during the duration of the exhibition of wind force and more and more tattered. The wind sets the strong work. Until the logical conclusion. (...)

Eco Shifter

Exhibition curated by Debora Hirsch
Eco Shifter refers to the ability to interact, adapt, transform and create new relationships with the environment.
With the vanishing of referential backgrounds, we are inevitably bound to unprecedented panoramas. Our daily navigation has become far-out exchange of motionless protocols.
In these settings, once secluded artists turn into eco shifters or denizens of a peripheral ecosystem through permanent adjustments as the only strategy of adaptation and uncertain balance, in order to act as modifying agents.
Suffice to say that any contribution to these omnipresent system implies a shift in nature and relocation, going back to a temporary but conceptual solitude.

Human Aspect

curator: Piotr Krajewski

The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for media art in Poland and one of the leading international contemporary art events in Europe. For its 30th aniversary, Wroclaw hosts a series of events exploring the complexity of the current relations between the human and the technological, with the human as an initiator, a recipient and, sometimes, a victim of these mutating interplays.

The National Museum's Four Domes Pavilion and the WRO Art Center serve as the major exhibition venues of the Biennale, exploring topical concerns of the modern (and archaeological) media, such as transhumanism, digital art, interactivity, AI, bot emotionality, video-art, live coding, inter-species communication, digital environments.

Debris (Times Contengencies)

The exhibition inquires on different ways of approaching to the concept of time. This is a concept that revolved on other notions, such as death, ruin, change, memory amongst others. In this exhibition, artists from Colombia, Belgium and UK show several ways on the notion itself and how matter can be related to it.

Leyla Cardenas, as a special guest, presents her video "Deep Time" that questions the relation between time and space. She will have a talk on April 6 at 6.30pm

Material Insanity

The exhibition explores matter and its symbolic significance, in a plurality of dimensions and formal experiences, crossing various discourses in the service of a new aethetic.

Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos presents a multisensoriel installation "DO touch and smell". An installation that questions the physical connections existing between the viewer and the art work in an exhibition setting. In this work she offers visitors an opportunity to interact in a more direct and intimate way with the various materials present in the exhibition and reconsider along the way their experience of it. She collaborated with professional perfumers from Givaudan perfume to create an interpretation of the scent of materials found in the exhibition. Inside the installation, the visitor faces a large wall covered with hundreds of sorbaroards whose caps are made of stone, plaster, wool, sugar, iron...and each containing inside the fragrances attached to that same material. Visitors are encouragred to remove the cap and smell the fragrance while holding in their hand that material. Deprived from the all-too-obvious visual dimension of it, they can now engage into their own personal olfactory and tactile journey into the world of materials to capture their essence.

Luv and Lee

 Fine white sand meanders across the floor - the installation by Lena von Goedeke and Sophia Pompéry lends the exhibition space hase29 the atmosphere of a changeable and at the same time timeless landscape. Fragments of text hidden under the sand are exposed in an air stream or made to disappear by drifting. Everything appears fleeting and fragmentary.

Luv and Lee form the first cooperation between Lena von Goedeke (*1983) and Sophia Pompéry (*1984). A common point of departure for the subtle, ambiguous works of both artists is their interest in scientific phenomena. Pompéry and Goedeke deal in detail with borderline perceptual situations: with their own sense of absurdity, they show how unreliable, ambivalent and enigmatic perception is and how our resonance towards natural processes behaves.

"First nature was a model, today it has become an afterimage of art." (Martin Seel) The abyss of nature has fascinated us from time immemorial to the present day. Especially today - unlike in earlier times - we are no longer just indifferent viewers*, but we are beginning more and more to fear the consequences of our interventions on planet Earth and are already suspecting what could happen to nature and to us.

NATUR appears in the installation LUV UND LEE as an erratic image, as a sublime site of an intervention, in which the minimalist scenery creates an underlying disturbing irritation. Before our eyes and under our feet, "Luv und Lee" literally turns into compelling questions about ourselves and our ethics in dealing with an endlessly "used" nature. .....

Cookbook' 19

co-curated by Nicolas Bourriaud and Andrea Petrini

Assembling 25 chefs and 20 artists from around the world, Cookbook?19 explores through a large panorama the relationship between the future art of cooking and the edibleness of art. As the second chapter of a project first organised in 2013 at the the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, the exhibition will be commissioned by the same team : the art critic, curator and co-founder of Palais de Tokyo Nicolas Bourriaud and food journalist, globetrotter, curator and creator of the World restaurant Awards, Andrea Petrini. Since trends in art and cuisine have evolved over the past five years, new criterias have emerged: Instagram potential, focus on microorganisms and their effects on the body (gluten free, vegan...), cultural identity, and globalization (appropriation, locavorism...).

The 2019 edition focuses on the unprecedented convergence of these subjects, highlighting an emerging generation of creators bound by a desire to interact with their environment and explore the stimulation of multiple senses. The choices of this new generation of chefs and artists are motivated by the exploration and incursion of each other's worlds: cooks will make live music or enable us to physically enter into the spirit of their dishes, while artists will try to push us to develop our sense of smell or taste.
Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos is presenting two puzzles and a video from her body of works "Chez Naussica" that revisits the definition of the Ancient Greek tradition of hospitality in the light of the current refugee crisis that has deeply transformed our relation to Otherness in Europe and beyond. 
For this project, she re-enacted the ancient tradition of hospitality in a series of dinner performances that invited small groups of twelve Greek locals, refugees and expats to share anonymously a family-style dinner. The human interactions and personal stories that unfolded during each meal acted as the starting point for her to create artworks  that explore the revealing of the Self and the construction of the relationship with the Other thru food.

The Marvellous Cacophony

curators: Gunnarr B. Kvaran et Danielle Kvaran

At the beginning of 21st century, despite the fact that the Western notion of contemporary art has become an universal model of reference, no single common denominator has emerged. The art world has many centres, multi-layered activities, a plurality of ideas about what art is and what it can be, and an impressive number of heterogeneous works. This Marvellous Cacophony reflects the richness of the world. It is a positive condition, creating energies that can include dissonance and even conflicting ideas and expressions. It involves the coexistence of multiple identities and permanent relational flows, conveying notions of miscellany and openness, and creating meaningful narratives about art and culture, social issues and politics.

The Marvellous Cacophony will explore worldwide artistic production, looking into diverse art scenes and different generations of living artists. It will bring together a constellation of works that express, through their forms, structures, materials, techniques, devices and content, the extraordinary richness of contemporary artistic expression.

Møenlight Sonata - A homage to the starry sky of Møn

curator René Block

To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Kunsthal 44Møen will put together a special constellation of stars under the lyric name "Møenlight Sonata", alluding to Beethoven's 14th sonata for piano, which he also referred to "quasi una fantasia". The show will present a cross-section of the Kunsthal's program so far, as well as newly commissioned works by artists from Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Turkey that are still new to the island. What connects the works of these individual artists is the specific use of light, as subject and material. Light (or the absence of it) is not only one of the oldest topics in art history, but also a special condition on Møn ? during the day, but also at night.The 10 year anniversary of Kunsthal 44Møen is conceived to be a summer festival, an invitation to all groups of local residents and visiting guests to celebrate the sky over Møn.


The focus of this group exhibition is the drawing material CHALK. Artists have been asked to produce new works with blackboard chalks and there are (inter)national loans by Joseph Beuys, Rudolf Steiner, Juan Munoz and Nemanja Nikolic.

The Following Is a True Story

In March 2017 Mader was chosen by an international jury as the winner of the eleventh Foam Paul Huf Award. The winning series Ekaterina is part of an exhibition consisting of several projects that jointly form a narrative about a naive young man in search of happiness. 
His work stands out for the humour and irony with which he addresses serious topics such as loneliness, love, exploitation and the female body. Beneath the seeming superficiality of his images, his work contains many layers that can be interpreted in various ways. 
Mader plays a subtle game with what we believe to be true ? a game with which he confronts us with our own assumptions and prejudices. In this day and age, of ?fake news? and idealised user profiles on social media, Mader?s work demonstrates that the familiar question about the truthfulness of photography is still a relevant one.

Der Schein der Dinge

solo show by Sophia Pompéry

Sophia Pompéry is a keen observer. With a phenomenological vision onto the world she questions the deceptive appearance of things and opens up unusual perspectives on apparently well-known objects and conditions. At studio space 45cbm she presents a set of works, that pay homage to the elusive moment, with a focus on the transition from one state of being to another. In a playful experimental set-up physical and optical regularities are being fathomed out, and philosophical questions concerning space, time and self are raised.

Illegibility, Palimpsests

The Pan Tadeusz Museum in Wroclaw is a place where history and modernity come together. Based on the best traditions of Polish Romanticism, it continues to promote the most vivid and active aspects of Polish culture, seeking a language which makes it possible to present the cultural legacy of this great work of literary art in a contemporary context, allowing room for reinterpretation

The phenomenon of illegibility and the accumulation of layers of script is the subject of the new temporary exhibition at the Pan Tadeusz Museum. The exhibition includes works e.g. by Andrzej Bednarczyk, Irma Blank, Zbigniew Libera and Andrzej Szewczyk.

Most of us have experienced writing down a note which is later illegible, even to ourselves; it has occurred to almost everyone that we failed to decipher someone else's scribbling, or have come across a system of signs that we couldn't understand. How do we feel then: irritated, helpless, powerless? Or perhaps, in those conditions, when the desire for meaning evades us so blatantly, do we discover perception of different kind, where the script becomes a material phenomenon in itself, a fascinating ornament, a code without information? We see scripts which are visible, but not legible.
The notion of a palimpsest appears to be closely related to illegibility. This term describes a manuscript written on previously used material. A palimpsest involves layers of overwritten script, in which the old layers eventually begin to reappear from below the new, making the writing less legible, if at all.

This may include the not-so-simple pleasures of love, humor, horror and any other perspectives that art may bring to bear on the fragility of human experience and life which, in itself, may have a transient or long-lasting impact.

The Pleasure of Love, the 56th October Salon, will be composed of around 60 artists from Serbia, the Balkan region and the world at large chosen directly by the Artistic Director and from an open submission.  The Salon will take place in Belgrade City Museum and in Cultural Center of Belgrade (Art gallery, Artget gallery and Podroom gallery)

Line and Dot

The line and the dot, these ancient characters of script, become cues for two radical and experimental artworks exhibited during Appropriating Language #17, in Manière Noire. With both pieces: Und Punkt as well as Häuserzeilen. 1600 Meter Monostichon, Sophia Pompéry examines the visual form of writing, given extreme amplifications.

City after the City

At the heart of the debate about the future of urban planning in the twenty-first century is the idea that the city must go beyond the combination of values and motivations that make it what it is today.

The City after the City exhibitions, which form an authentic string of events, present a succession of situations that illustrate a longing for a different kind of city. They avoid the trap of nostalgia for some mythical ideal city, and make no claim to reach the place where our real origins are rooted. If we admit that cities are no longer able to self-certify traditions and roots, then we can say we are facing a divisive event of great impact, which above all testifies to the opaque nature of today?s urban model. City after the City examines the symptoms of a global trend towards going beyond the conventional city. These symptoms are displayed to the general public in an effective manner

Between the pessimism of the intellect and the optimism of the will

The title of the main exhibition* is inspired by an aphorism invoked by the Marxist thinker and politician Antonio Gramsci in the Prison notebooks written between 1929 and 1935. Gramsci wrote : "the challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusionned (...) I'm pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will".

The exhibition takes Gramsci's aphorism as a point of departure to reflect on the current crisis that governs much of the Mediterranean region, the geographic focus of the Biennale.

*Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Will"

RV sur la Corniche

The French/Moroccan artist Mehdi-Georges Lahlou is the enfant terrible of an art that does not exist. Or not yet, since he is in the process of inventing it. His works navigate between North and South, between cultures, between several media, between multiple intertwined notions. From this dual identity Mehdi-Georges Lahlou guides us into his interior world. He raises burlesque to a high art status, playing with the symbols of the Muslim tradition.

As part of the festival “Return to Sender," HAU Hebbel am Ufer presents a selection of his works – one of them is a very special version of Nefertiti.

Under Erasure

Contemporary art is rife with erasures. Erasures are visible in it, present as themselves in various ways. The subject of the works in the exhibition is what was once a covert stage in the process of creation. Unlike observing works whose wholeness and meaning depend on hidden parts, the current gaze is focused on the contradictory presence of the erased and on the erased/visible relationship as a signification factor.

Fear and Desire

new cinematic works by Julian Rosefeldt, Christoph Girardet & Matthias Muller, Reynold Reynolds, Clement Page, Marion Tampon-Lajarriette
+ new sculptures by Mattia Biagi

There are few subjects in the study of cinema that are quite as salient as fear & desire. Freud, Lacan, Lyotard and dozens more have written about the desiring, or libidinal, function of the cinematic, while semioticians such as Christian Metz have described how such voyeuristic mechanisms such as distance, displacement and lack are part and parcel of the filmic experience as well. ?What distinguishes the cinema,? writes Metz, ?is an extra reduplication, a supplementary and specific turn of the screw bolting desire to lack? which is partly why the cinema is so very well-suited to handling erotic scenes, which depend so heavily on direct, non-sublimated voyeurism.?

Co-curated by Clement Page, the exhibition Fear & Desire at Young Projects will feature 7 films by some of Europe?s most respected artists. Each medium-to-short work explores the theme of fear & desire, both as a topic and as a formal concern, and yet no two approaches are alike.
