VernissageTV PDF-Magazine No. 16: Tapes, Fur, Tubes, and Mylar

Out now: VernissageTV PDF-magazine No. 16, April 2011.

During a trip to an evening of openings in Paris, VernissageTV had a closer look at the retrospective with the subtle works of French artist Pierrette Bloch at Karsten Greve Gallery. In Fribourg / Switzerland, we had the chance to do an extensive interview with Edith Dekyndt, who had a solo show at Fri-Art Centre d’Art Contemporain, titled “Dieu rend visite à Newton”.

Number 16 also takes a look at the London Art Scene, where a lot of local galleries showed their program at London Art Fair, and Hauser & Wirth opened new spaces with a Martin Creed solo exhibition that featured a dangerously revolving neon sculpture.

In Berlin, VernissageTV met with Agathe Snow whose solo exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim was showcasing large-scale collages and mobile sculptures. In this show the New York-based Corsican artist Agathe Snow focuses on monuments, trademarks, and historical sites and investigates how they leave their mark on collective memory and national identity.

For the first time, VernissageTV took at trip to Lithuania, to document Zilvinas Kempinas exhibition at Galerija Vartai in Vilnius. Kempinas conceived a show that presented important older and new works.

One of the main themes of the current issue of the magazine is New York. VernissageTV attended several openings such as Ivan Navarro at Paul Kasmin and Tara Donovan at The Pace Gallery. An extensive photo gallery is complemented by a text by FAD Editor at Large Ben Austin, who shares his personal experiences of Armory Week with the readers.

And finally, issue 16 gives an outlook on VernissageTV’s participation in Art Cologne and the video art program that features the artists G.H. Hovagimyan, Christina McPhee, Maria Joao Salema, Raphaele Shirley, Ultra Art Fair, and Lee Wells.

Artists in this issue: Pierrette Bloch, Alexandre Joly, Bettina Pousttchi, Robert Mapplethorpe, Agathe Snow, Edith Dekyndt, Zilvinas Kempinas, and Tara Donovan.

Alexandre Joly: Dérive Exotiques at Galerie Rosa Turetsky

Following his exhibition at Galerie Römerapotheke in Zürich, Alexandre Joly provides us with additional aspects of his work at Galerie Rosa Turetsky in Geneva. The exhibition is a continuation of his artistic process blending numerous mediums into one body of work. Joly specifically uses sound in two of the installations, as a material which allows him to explore time and space, while creating links between the different elements of his work. He constructs a corporeal and sonar experience offering a new perception of reality. The exhibition runs until March 5, 2011.

Alexandre Joly at Galerie Römerapotheke, Zürich

Galerie Römerapotheke starts into the new year with a solo exhibition with works by the artist Alexandre Joly. “Alexandre Joly work is based on an imaginary universe of the marvelous and the strange, the macabre and the playful. In installations and performances Alexandre Joly investigates acoustic creations, acoustic areas and objects. Nature and the animal world are very present in his work. The contemplator is seduced to experience his work by a tactile and spontaneous instinctive way.” Alexandre Joly was born in 1977 in Saint-Julien en Genevois, France. He received several prizes such as the Kiefer Hablitzel prize in 2006 and 2007. Galerie Römerapotheke will present Alexandre Joly at Volta NY 2011 in March.
