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.

Tara Donovan: Untitled (Mylar), 2011 at The Pace Gallery, New York

Currently, The Pace Gallery in New York has two exhibitions with works by Tara Donovan: Drawings (Pins) at their space at 25th Street, and Untitled (Mylar), 2011 at 22nd Street.

Tara Donovan’s Untitled (Mylar), 2011 is a large-scale installation for which she uses sheets of Mylar. The Mylar sheets with their metallic surfaces are bent into blooming balls and arranged into organic structures of varying heights. The installation relates to Untitled (Mylar) 2010, a work that was part of her 2010 exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

Tara Donovan is known for her landscape-like installations made from common everyday materials such as pencils, cut electrical cable, and plastic cups. (See also VernissageTV’s original coverage of her installation Untitled (Plastic Cups) in 2006 and the re-edited version in HD as part of our VernissageTV Classics r3 series.
