Carsten Höller

卡斯滕·奥莱
КАРСТЕН ХЕЛЛЕР
Dice (White Body, Black Dots)
“Carsten Höller likes to unsettle, upset, delight and surprise. You get out of one of his shows and feel like you’ve lived through ‘something’ new and totally unexpected.”Régine Debatty

Reality is not Always Probable
‘Reality is not Always Probable’ is constructed from tens of thousands of colourful dice and is generated, line by line, by manually emulating the rules of a simple computer binary program. Its title references a quote by Jorge Luis Borges and men’s disquiet towards a lack of controllable or predictable events and the belief that complete knowledge is impossible.

YING GAO

Indice de l’indifférence
Montreal-based fashion designer and professor at UQAM, recipient of the Phyllis-Lambert Design Montréal Grant, Ying Gao questions our assumptions about clothing by combining urban design, architecture and multimedia. She explores the construction of the garment, taking her inspiration from the transformations of the social and urban environment.

Regina José Galindo

Necromonas
A Regina José Galindo le interesa crear experiencias, pues considera que es donde más se puede crecer y aprender. Por eso crea experiencias que generen preguntas y puedan ir más allá. Asimismo, dice, le “interesa crear obras donde se modifiquen o desplacen las relaciones lineales entre el público y la obra de arte. Romper los esquemas es necesario en todo proceso de transmisión de información, para que el conocimiento no se estanque”.

Android Couture

Presented on the cusp of the new millennium, Alexander McQueen’s Autumn/Winter 1999 collection for famed French fashion house Givenchy captured the new fascination with personalized digital technology in popular culture. At the culmination of the show, two models appeared outfitted in molded Perspex bodices studded with flashing LED lights and glowing leggings patterned like computer chips. The creation of a digital aesthetic and its intimate application to the body—an android-like amalgamation of the physical and digital—anticipated the “wearables” trend and the formation of the digital self. Known for his exquisite tailoring, meticulous detailing, and ambitious collections, McQueen also represented one of the remaining visionaries of haute couture extravagance.

Byoungho Kim

Бйонхо Киму
Floating Land

Este artista nacido y establecido en Seul trabaja con esculturas muy visuales que a veces rozan la linea que separa la escultura de la máquina. En muchas de ellas investiga con las posibilidades del sonido convirtiéndolo en arte. El artista surcoreano califica su obra como “Fantasía construida, fantasía del deseo, y una fantasía de nuestro tiempo”. Byoungho Kim dice que “la humanidad está en la búsqueda continua de nuevos deseos” y esa es una buena reflexión que también puede definir su obra a la perfección.

The almost ideal game

Gilles Deleuze about the Ideal Game: we are surprised when he postulates as the first rule: “there is no rule”. Soon, all the other games that have some rule are, for him, partial. That is, products of the ideal game.

A game where there are no rules implies a completely free game creatively. The question to be raised is whether there is a grey region between the ideal game and the partial games, so that the rules established in the partial games could be suspended. This way we could unpartialise the games bringing them closer to the ideal game or some kind of almost ideal game.
If we take the rules of any game, it means it stops to work immediately, except in the ideal game. Therefore, the key question is: how to suspend the rule of a game (Dice games) so that it can continue to work?

MANUELA LALIC

genius idea
Je porte une attention particulière à l’aspect fonctionnaliste de notre système d’organisation sociale en tant que modèle de société. Pour créer l’effet d’une tension entre ce qui est individuel et collectif, j’utilise des objets, mobilier et matériaux fonctionnels comme des indices de notre logique de vie. Mes installations, performances et objets questionnent des mouvements de masse (ex : prendre le métro) pour montrer du doigt notre société qui préfabrique et standardise nos désirs et nos besoins. Par l’accumulation, il se trame une matière première à partir de laquelle elle élabore des mises en scène minimalistes ou exubérantes qui questionnent nos moments collectifs (ex : pique-nique, mariage, réunion universitaire) tout en indiquant des préoccupations d’ordre politique et écologique.
