“In computing, traceroute is a computer network computer diagnostic tool for displaying the route (path) and measuring transit delays of packets across an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The history of the route is recorded as the round-trip times of the packets received from each successive host (remote node) in the route (path); the sum of the mean times in each hop indicates the total time spent to establish the connection. Traceroute proceeds unless all (three) sent packets are lost more than twice, then the connection is lost and the route cannot be evaluated.” [source Wikipedia]

Emma Hart and Jonathan Baldock
SUCKERZ

25 June – 1 August 2015
l’étrangère, London

l’étrangère is delighted to announce SUCKERZ, a presentation of new sculptural works by British artists Emma Hart and Jonathan Baldock in their first exhibition together.

Gaping mouths, tongues, nipples, and arseholes occupy the gallery in an agitated display of bodies, orifices and foodstuffs across a messy and precarious banqueting table. SUCKERZ presents Hart’s and Baldock’s exaggerated forms in a carnivalesque conglomeration within the gallery: a series of protagonists and props that invite the viewer into the artists’ unofficial feast.

YASMIN MUELLER
GOSH, I FANTASISE

6 May – 13 June 2015
Maria Stenfors, London

In Gosh, I Fantasise, Mueller continues her exploration of the muse through sculptural objects, with an installation that oscillates between the dreamlike and a hardedge reality.

A series of wall and floor sculptures reveal graphic abstractions intertwined with meaning. Black denim is fashioned into geometric shapes, akin to a soft skeleton or a labyrinth of guts, which starkly puncture the white cube gallery space, claiming its own domain. Mueller’s hand makes the soft material behave like hard metal or more traditional sculpture, and the resulting installation presents a tension between external structure and the inner world.

POLYPHONIES

18 April – 13 June 2015
Optica, Montréal

Curated by Véronique Leblanc

Artists: Anne-Marie Ouellet, Emmanuelle Léonard, Katarina Zdjelar, Kaya Behkalam & Azin Feizabadi, Sophie Castonguay, Dave Ball & Oliver Walker

Polyphonies is an exhibition that stages a plurality of voices while bringing together the work of eight artists including two duos. Whether based on documentary approaches (interviews, surveys) resembling anthropological field studies or revolving around the invention of fictional situations in which archives of various kinds are played out, the orchestration of speech in the artists’ propositions creates a disjunctive gap with the documented reality. They appropriate ways of telling stories (in past, present, and future tenses) to bring out issues in the ideological and identity-related constructions that take shape through speech.

NELSON HENRICKS
A LECTURE ON ART

25 April – 20 June 2015
Dazibao, Montréal

In a society in which the workings of communications technology are often invisible, the act of revealing its operation can be socially and politically enabling. Works of art created with technology can foster understanding of the interplay between technology, social context and subjectivity. – NH

An artist, writer, musician and sometimes curator, Nelson Henricks is a key figure of video art. For more than thirty years, he has developed a rich body of work addressing issues such as the visual representation of sound, the passage of time, the inherency of slippage in translation – from one language to another, from one medium to another, from one concept to another – and the semantic fields revealed by these slips. Henricks’ work ranges from single-channel videos to complex multi-channel installations, as well as projects that incorporate various other techniques and materials.
