Andro Semeiko & Shino Yanai
Comedy and Menace – The Birthday Party

16 November – 28 December 2014
at White Conduit Projects, London

White Conduit Projects opens its central London location at 1 White Conduit Street N1 on 15th November 2014. It will be showcasing Japanese artists and designers alongside British and international artists in a programme of innovative exhibitions across a variety of media.

The inaugural exhibition entitled Comedy and Menace – The Birthday Party is an ambitious project showing works by two artists, Andro Semeiko from Georgia and Shino Yanai from Japan.

Semeiko has exhibited in various group and solo shows in England. This time he will produce work based on the history of the neighbourhood of the gallery, referring to knightly quests and cycling in Islington. Semeiko’s projects often feature knights. – “These clanking, forlorn knights, in their tragicomic search to find something authentic in this synthetic universe. Never perceiving that their mistake is to look for authenticity elsewhere, when it can already be found in their own purposeful, yet hopelessly misdirected quest.” (JJ Charlesworth) Read more »

Oli Sorenson
La Société de la Place des Spectacles

4 – 13 December 2014
at POPOP Gallery, Montréal

Vernissage: Saturday 6 December 2014, 14h – 17h
Performance: Saturday 6 December 2014, 16h

“[…] the very means of damaging these monitors in a performative context, to leave these marks will give exclusive properties to each of them: products of mass consumption will be transformed into unique objects …” (O. Sorenson)

Lodged under the signs of paradox, Oli Sorenson’s performance entitled La Société de la Place des Spectacles is presented on December 6th at 4 pm in Montreal’s Belgo Building. This performance taps right at the heart of spectacular fervor, while investing in the denial his own representation by continuing his series of “revisited works.” This corpus, triggered by a will to comment on the existing work of other creators as much as mass-produced objects, is here explored under the logic of destruction. Strangely, Sorenson’s exercise in transfiguration aspires to restore a stamp of uniqueness onto already original creations. Read more »

Confusion in her eyes that says it all

7 November – 13 December 2014
at Maria Stenfors, London

Artists: Tamsin Casswell, Jennifer Douglas, Hans Rosenström

Confusion in her eyes that says it all brings together three artists who each in turn explore perceptions of intimacy and communication, deceptive illusion and control. Humble, everyday materials are transformed, creating new narratives and spaces that draw us in and make us question the nature of experience. Hereby, the exhibition examines the unique perspective an individual experiences at a particular moment in time, and the altered perceptions evoked by an artwork. Read more »

Feature – A new OFF fair for Toronto

Feature Art Fair, VIP opening on 22 October 2013. Photo by M-KOS

Feature premiered its four-day fair on 23 October, as a somewhat smaller yet more sophisticated alternative to the Toronto International Art Fair (TIAF). The TD Bank sponsored event showcased no more than two dozen Canadian galleries, cherry picked by Montreal based AGAC (Association des Galeries d’Art Contemporain) to present some of the most forward thinking artists in the region. Inside the main rehearsal spaces of the Canadian Opera Company – a free-standing 10,000 square feet interior in a historic building of downtown Toronto – each exhibitor presented a maximum of three artists, laid out within wide-angled walls that blurred the threshold between the fair corridors and gallery booths. Feature’s limited selection did however reflect the country’s main cultural hubs by keeping to contemporary galleries from Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, with the exception of Patrick Mikhail in Ottawa.

Text by Robert Beckinsale

Frieze London closed the 12th edition of its art fair last Saturday, in addition to the third iteration of Frieze Masters on the following day, both taking annual residence in the autumnal surroundings of Regent’s Park.

2014 saw Frieze London bring together over 160 international galleries from 25 countries, many of which noticeably breaking from the shackles of the ‘white cube’ paradigm with brightly coloured walls and floor decorations. Among the leaders of this trend, Gagosian and Sadie Coles HQ were hoarding large swaths of our attention span, from the entrance lobby. Gagosian’s Carsten Höller installation Gartenkinder (2014) invited children to play with works such as Dice (White Body, Black Dots)(2014) that were minded by qualified nannies instead of the expected colder model-type gallery assistants.
