Jason and Alicia Hall Moran: AiR. Performance at Art Public, ABMB 2012

This video documents a part of the performance that Jason Moran and Alicia Hall Moran in collaboration with Brandon Ross presented at the opening night of Art Basel Miami Beach’s Art Public program. The performance is titled AiR and contains both jazz and operatic elements. It interacts with Mexican artist José Davila’s public art installation Untitled (The Space Beneath Us), an architectural intervention made of ceramic tiles that was installed in front of the Bass Museum of Art and that translates the Homage to the Square series of paintings by the German-born American artist Joseph Albers into sculpture. The video above is an excerpt. The full-length video is available after the break.

Alicia Hall Moran is a Broadway musical actress and classically trained mezzo-soprano. Jason Moran is a pianist-composer, who is a MacArthur Fellow and the artistic adviser for jazz at the Kennedy Center. Jason and Alicia Hall Moran have been collaborating for many years. In 2012, they participated in the Whitney Biennial with the performance event Bleed. The artists live and work in New York.

Alexander Calder at Fondation Beyeler and Art Basel Miami Beach 2012

At Art Basel Miami Beach 2012, Fondation Beyeler presented two major works by Alexander Calder, Snow Flurry (1948) and Untitled (c. 1939). In this video, the president of the Calder Foundation, Alexander S.C. Rower, talks about the two exceptional mobiles, revealing some exciting background knowledge on the works.

Alexander Calder’s hanging mobile Snow Flurry is one of his most popular works. The delicate white kinetic sculpture is reminiscent of snowflakes. It comes from the artist’s own collection and has been widely exhibited. In contrast, the untitled black standing mobile had its first public appearance at Art Basel Miami Beach 2012. It has been famously photographed by the Swiss photographer Herbert Matter outside Alexander Calder’s studio in 1940, but has never been on public view before.

Pedro Reyes: Baby Marx (2008 – Present) / Puppet Show at Art 43 Basel Art Parcours

Art Parcours is a sector of the international art fair Art Basel that presents site-specific artworks and performances in Basel. For Art Basel 2012, the St. Johann neighborhood was chosen to be discovered via art.

For his participation in Art Parcours 2012, the Mexican artist Pedro Reyes decided to enliven his ongoing video installation Baby Marx (2008 – present) into a live puppet show. The original work is a growing video production based on the nineteenth century debate between socialism and capitalism featuring Karl Marx and Adam Smith as the main characters in a puppet show directed at children. In the hypothetical debate Marx and Smith express their differing political ideologies in an articulate way. They discuss topics ranging from Occupy Wall Street to Warhol and explain how to get rich.

Pedro Reyes was born in 1972 in Mexico City. The artist lives and works in Mexico City. Pedro Reyes’ work ranges from sculpture and film to design and pedagogy. His work revolves around social and political problems and proposes creative solutions.

Art Parcours 2012 has been curated by Jens Hoffmann, Director of the CCA Wattis Institute in San Francisco.

The above video is an excerpt, in which Adam Smith explains how to get rich. The entire show is available after the jump.

Bernhard Leitner: Sound Suit / Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Art 43 Basel

At this year’s Art Basel art fair, the Vienna-based gallery Georg Kargl Fine Arts showed a unique piece of art that was created by the Austrian sound sculptor Bernhard Leitner. The artwork is titled Sound Suit (Ton-Anzug) and was realized by Leitner in 1975. The Sound Suit is a jumpsuit with four loudspeakers attached to it. The sound travels between the speakers and creates an audio sculpture.

On the occasion of the presentation of Bernhard Leitner’s Sound Suit, VernissageTV had the chance to speak with the artist. In this conversation with Dr. Bettina Krogemann, Bernhard Leitner talks about the concept of the Ton-Anzug and his work in general.

For more information on the artist and a video tour of his major retrospective at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin (2008), visit Bernhard Leitner: Sound Space Sculpture / Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin.

Gardar Eide Einarsson: Untitled (Apparatus), 2011. Art Public, Art Basel Miami Beach

Gardar Eide Einarsson’s spray-painted steel sculpture that was on display within the framework of Art Basel Miami Beach’s Art Public section both relates to prison exercise equipment as well as to the concept of Minimalist sculpture. Placed on the beach near Collins Park, the beach-goers soon realized how to use it, as shown in this video.

‘Untitled (Apparatus)’ by Gardar Eide Einarsson is a sculpture based on prison exercise equipment. Prison design and architecture repre- sent to the artists a zero state of design, where all traditional design considerations are jettisoned in favor of a design that exclusively seeks to prevent certain behaviors, generally focusing on not lending itself to the infliction of bodily harm. In this, it shares similarities with generic outdoor furniture of the kind found in city parks across the United States and the world. The sculpture has a strong visual affinity to Minimalist sculpture and shares Minimalism’s preoccupation with the relationship between sculpture and the body of the spectator. The sculpture in this case could possibly be used as a way to actually transform the body through exercise. This again relates back to the problematic relationship between the body and theories of discipline and control as effected through exercise and the shaping of the body, relevant in a city with a strong beach culture.

Glenn Kaino: Levitating the Fair. Art Public, Art Basel Miami Beach

For the Art Public section of Art Basel Miami Beach, Los Angeles-based artist Glenn Kaino conceived a performance that was meant to take place throughout the duration of the fair. It was planned that hundreds of volunteers helped to lift a 20 x 20 feet sculptural platform invoking the iconic attractions of the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Although this “test of the physical investment and personal commitment to the realization of creative moments” wasn’t very successful due the lack of a sufficient number of volunteers, it was certainly worth a try. At least it worked at the Art Public’s Opening Night.

Performance by Jamie Isenstein at Art Basel 2011 / Interview

During Art Basel 2011 Brooklyn-based artist Jamie Isenstein was performing “Rug Woogie IV” at the booth of Galerie Meyer Riegger. Jamie Isenstein was seated at a classical harp. But the instrument didn’t produce any sound, on the contrary: Jamie Isenstein wasn’t plucking the strings, but weaving wool through them, covering their sound. The result of this process is a sculpture, a rug, woven into the harp by the artist. In this conversation with Dr. Bettina Krogemann, Jamie Isenstein talks about this performance / sculpture piece and her work in general.

Jamie Isenstein was born in 1975 in Portland, Oregon. She lives and works in New York City. Her solo exhibition titled “Double Feature! Empire of Fire and Rug Woogie IV” at Meyer Riegger Karlsruhe is still on show until July 30, 2011.

Rirkrit Tiravanija Cooking and Drawing Event at Art Basel 2011

In his event at Art 42 Basel, the artist Rirkrit Tiravanija merged two typologies of his oeuvre: cooking-as-event and political drawing. It was first launched under the title “who’s afraid of red, yellow, and green” at 100 Tonson Gallery in Bangkok / Thailand in 2010, at a time when there was an intense conflict between “red” and “yellow” shirt protesters. Red, yellow, and green Thai curries, as visitors were invited to add charcoal drawings to the white gallery walls, showing political motives. In Basel, this was repeated with a different topic. The project is usually conceived for a given space according to the socio-political context of the surrounding region.

In this conversation with Dr. Bettina Krogemann, the managing director of 100 Tonson Gallery, Aey Phanachet, talks about the concept of the work, the involvement of the visitors and how it was received by collectors. 100 Tonson Gallery is the only gallery from Southeast Asia taking part in Art Basel 2011.
