Wolfe von Lenkiewicz - Hieronymus Bosch

August 24, 2012 by Kay

All Visual Arts 7th September - 4th October 2012

"Wolfe von Lenkiewicz has transformed Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights into a post-historic, trans-cultural manuscript. At first glance von Lenkiewicz’s work appears to be a faithful reproduction of the original, but on closer inspection it is ‘contaminated’ with imagery from a wide range of historical and contemporary sources, both art historical and pop cultural. Diverse and contradictory images have been smuggled into the already dense and multilayered scene; from a screaming head by Bacon to clusters of brightly coloured Pokémon characters. They share the space of a painted universe but are unknowing of each other’s existence.

From the essay Another False World: Conjuring the Imaginary in the Work of Wolfe von Lenkiewicz by Richard Dyer

Exotic Juicy Tutti Frutti - a series of Photographs by Antonio Marguet, Thursday 6th September 6-8pm

August 23, 2012 by Kay

Press release: From September 6th 2012 Other Criteria (Hinde Street) will exhibit works by Antonio Marguet. The exhibition titled ‘Exotic Juicy Tutti Frutti’, will be on display in the Photography Room, a space on the lower ground floor dedicated to photography.

Each photograph takes its title from a variety of car air fresheners, named extravagantly to stimulate the imagination. The reference to these artificial fragrances is not just a comment on the deodorant industry. Conceptually, it plays on the current day necessity of creating one’s own, personal brand, especially in the realms of social media. Marguet uses these air fresheners and deodorants as metaphors for commodified brand enhancers.

The photographs in this series show Marguet’s fascination with what he sees as 'the excess of subjectivity and self-absorption in the social media age'. It is the seductive nature of being projected as a commodity beyond the power of the rational gaze that inspires his work. Marguet’s aim is to create a myth or fetish around an object without the object existing physically, which is similar to how we mirror ourselves through the fictional narratives we build on the online platforms of social media. Marguet’s work is photography-based, and although he creates ‘object-sculptures’, it is only the image that remains as the end result.

Screening of Energy Dairies in honour of Franz West

ICA Quickfire: Screening of Energy Dairies

23 August 2012, 7.30pm

Free, booking required

An impromptu and informal screening of Energy Dairies in honour of Franz West, introduced by Sarah Lucas and Julian Simmons. Energy Dairies is a film of a conversation between Sarah Lucas, Philipp Quehenberger, Andreas Reiter Raabe, and Franz West.

Introducing the film, Gregor Muir, Executive Director ICA, Julian Simmons (who filmed the event) and Sarah Lucas will discuss in more detail what was said between the three artists - Lucas, Raabe and West - in the face of frequent sonic disruptions by Quehenberger, an electronic musician based in Vienna. The screening not only reflects on last year's ICA presentation of West's outdoor sculptures, but Lucas' special connection with the artist who became a friend soon after his 2003 Whitechapel exhibition.

With thanks to Sadie Coles, Other Criteria, Austrian Cultural Forum London, Gagosian, Meyer Kainer, Sarah Lucas, Eva Presenhuber, Julian Simmons, Atelier Franz West.

Energy Dairies, 65 mins, Royal Institution, 21 June 2010, Video Synthesis & Audio Processing: Julian Simmons, DVD/CD, Other Criteria.

Frieze Foundation will curate and produce four new public art projects as part of the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad. Situated throughout east London, the series will be known as Frieze Projects East.

The series has been programmed by Frieze Foundation curator Sarah McCrory. The projects will take place in the six east London Host Boroughs for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games: Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

The artists that will take part in Frieze Projects East include: Can Altay, Sarnath Banerjee, Anthea Hamilton & Nicholas Byrne, Gary Webb and Klaus Weber, as well as Ruth Ewan, the recipient of the CREATE art award.

Gary Webb’s sculptural works reference and draw on an array of disparate elements from material culture. Combining the forms and traditions of 20th-century sculpture with the synthetic materials and methods of the design industry, his works appear as idiosyncratic, nonsensical and playful propositions.

Webb’s commission for Frieze Projects East will see the construction of a permanent and interactive public sculpture that will be installed within a popular community park. Built from steamed wood, polished aluminum and cast resin, Webb’s piece will combine brightly coloured and large scale public sculpture with elements of modular playground equipment.

For more information on these works visit the Frieze Projects East website.

Gary Webb has a number of sculptures available through Other Criteria. See them online here.

Frieze Projects East has been commissioned by CREATE and The London 2012 Festival.

Frieze Foundation is a non-profit organisation established in 2003 and is responsible for the curated programme at Frieze Art Fair, comprising artist commissions, talks, films, music and education.
