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.

Robert Mapplethorpe: Night Work. Curated by Scissor Sisters. Alison Jacques Gallery, London

After the 2009 exhibition “A Season in Hell“, Alison Jacques Gallery in London presents a show with work of Robert Mapplethorpe. The exhibition also inaugurates the gallery’s additional new exhibition space at 41-42 Berner’s Street. Robert Mapplethorpe: Night Work has been curated by the New York pop band Scissor Sisters. Last year, the band used a series of Mapplethorpe’s photographs as the artwork for their most recent album, as well as the singles for the album and the design concept for the accompanying world tour.

Night Work brings together not only the seven Mapplethorpe images chosen by Scissor Sisters, but also other work by the artist, and the band’s selection of works by major contemporary artists who have admired or been influenced by Mapplethorpe’s aesthetic and attitude: Matthew Barney, Tom Burr, Dan Fischer, Neil Gall, Paul Lee, Glenn Ligon, Oswaldo Macia, Jack Pierson, Marc Swanson, Scott Treleaven, Banks Violette, and Gillian Wearing. Robert Mapplethorpe: Night Work runs until March 19, 2011.
