Alison Watt – Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe

I am here!  From Rem­brandt to the selfie
Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe
31 Oc­to­ber 2015 – 31 Jan­u­ary 2016

The self-por­trait oc­cu­pies a core place in the his­tory of Eu­ro­pean art. Since the Re­nais­sance, and in some cases even ear­lier, artists have self-con­sciously cre­ated im­ages of them­selves. The ex­hi­bi­tion I am here! From Rem­brandt to the selfie pre­sents an ex­cit­ing se­lec­tion of artis­tic self-im­ages, in var­i­ous media, span­ning six cen­turies.

The ex­hi­bi­tion also re­veals the shift­ing faces of French, British, and Ger­man art pro­duc­tion. Self-Portrait, 1986 – 1987 by Alison Watt will be exhibited in this survey of self-portraiture drawn from three major Eu­ro­pean col­lec­tions: Lyon’s Musée des Beaux-Arts; the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh; and the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe. Launched in Karlsruhe, the show will later tour to Lyon and Edinburgh.

Katie Paterson – 10th Kaunas Biennial

Threads: Fantasmagoria about Distance
Kaunas Central Post Office building
18 September – 31 December 2015

Kaunas Biennial, the biggest contemporary art festival in the Baltic States, will begin its 10th season with the exhibition Threads: Fantasmagoria about Distance, curated art theorist and curator Nicolas Bourriaud.

Following the main concept of the Biennial and emphasizing the topic of new forms of communication, Nicolas Bourriaud and artists will question the relative notion of distance. According to the curator, Threads strives both to approach the form of fantasmagoria and address the way today’s artists include the notion of distance in their works. in a globalized and digitalized world, how does art deal with transportation, real time communication? What is the current shape of the presence/absence dialectics? How do artists present absent realities?

The exhibition includes Katie Paterson’s Dying Star Letters, Timepieces (Solar System) 2014 and Candle (from Earth into a Black Hole), 2015.

Charles Avery – Tree No. 5 (from Jadinagadendar)

Parasolstice – Winter Light 2015
Charles Avery: Tree no.5 (from the Jadindagadendar)
Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, London
15 October – 6 December 2015

Charles Avery’s Tree No. 5 (from the Jadindagadendar) – which was recently presented in Edinburgh’s Waverley Train Station during the Edinburgh Art Festival 2015 –  is the latest addition to the ongoing Winter Light series, for which Parasol unit invites a contemporary artist to create an installation that addresses the phenomenon of light.

Towering five metres tall and cast in bronze the sculpture will illuminate the outdoor terrace at Parasol unit from 15 October – 6 December 2015. Drawing inspiration for its design from mathematics (such as the square root of 2 and the Fibonacci sequence) Avery’s tree, ripe with fluorescent fruit hanging from its bronze branches, is from the Jadindagadendar, a municipal park in the town of Onomatopoeia at the heart of the artist’s fictional island. The park is filled, not with living botanical specimens but with artificial trees, flowers and shrubs, which express the Islanders’ refutation of Nature. Avery considers these artificial objects to be souvenirs brought to our world by a visitor to the Island.

The work is commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art. With additional support from Baillie Gifford Investment Managers and Edinburgh World Heritage.
