ВИКТОР ЭНРИХ
The artist definitely made a strong impression on the world of visual arts with his concepts. The ideas behind all his illustrations are very strong and full of substances, and manage to grasp the attention of the public from the first second. Aside from that, he also sends other, more subtle messages, regarding his own perspective upon the world, how he deems everything as possible for those who believe and who understand the power of imagination etc. The works of Victor Enrich really are something special, and worth taking a closer look. Without further ado, we invite you to admire the results of his restless imagination, his bold symbolism and his courageous approach to life and the world around us.

La Membre Fantôme

For the installation ‘le membre fantôme’, vanessa beecroft takes the visitor back to the classical language of sculpture through a conceptual perspective, leading us towards an intimate gallery room inhabited by timeless statuary. shown at the 2015 venice biennale, beecroft presents a scene that is visible only at a distance, where the viewer must look through a crevice carved out of two marble walls. Through the panels, we see fragments of a stone garden, rich in archaeological allures and echoes of early twentieth century avant-garde. the archive of memory is here a tribute in bronze – placed at the centre of the installation – to marcel duchamp’s ‘étant donnés’, a reference model for her research that combines personal memories, historical and artistic impressions and a conceptual tension.

Valla claimed to have collected a series of 60 “surrealistic” images, or that, at least, give that impression, during a long period “playing” in Google Earth.“The images are a kind of mirrors for a fun house.They are strange illusions and reflections of the real ”Despite the strong distortions, which easily resemble a surrealist painting, the images of the work do not have any manipulation of tools like Photoshop, for example.”The images are screenshots of Earth with basic color adjustments”, “This is a construction of 3D maps on two-dimensional bases, creating these fabulous and unintended distortions”.

ARART
File Festival

“Arart” is an application that breathes life into objects. It links reality with the expressions delivered through mobile devices adding new stories and values to the real environment.
How will the impressions of the environment that surround us and the various objects that envelop our bodies change through “Arart”?
We propose “Arart” as a new platform of expression that can maintain a strong link with reality.

Faun

Faun started from a desire to create a performance around dancer James O’Hara. As part of the centenary celebrations of the Ballets Russes, Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London also invited Cherkaoui to work on or draw inspiration from any of the pieces of the repertoire of the legendary company. Cherkaoui chose L’après midi d’un faune, Nijinski’s choreography inspired by Stéphane Mallarmé’s poem and danced on Claude Debussy’s impressionistic music. Nijinski’s version based itself on Greek representations on vases, it was very two dimensional, very classical yet also daring, sexual and quite controversial in it’s time.

IANNIS XENAKIS

Terretektorh
Terretektorh shows more concern for harmonic organization than the earlier, iconoclastic Pithoprakta, with its scatterings of knocking sounds and massed effects. Still, the concentration is decidedly on texture and movement, with narrow lines being bundled with a number of others in the same register to create a rawer sonic intensity that still has some basis in melody. Xenakis concentrates on the high and low registers, as did Varèse before him, and adds some unusual sound effects into the mix as well.

In Terretektorh and Persephassa, Xenakis creates the impression of movement by transferring musical material between groups of musicians using techniques developed from musique concrète. These works are further innovative because of the unique seating arrangements in which the space for the performers and audience are superimposed.
In this thesis,  demonstrating Xenakis’s early approach to spatial composition. The thesis builds on the work of other scholars and provides more insight as to how these fascinating pieces work.

Santiago Villanueva

The Slow Motion Band
Villanueva began his training and initiation in1984 from 1986-1995 he worked as an artist and teacher with Abraham Dubckovsky the Argentine sculptor and architect planner. His work: causes, produces and creates visual and physical impressions and sensory pleasures, space and forms that are capable of enclosing and hiding something and demarcating soluble volumes. The pieces are of respectful sizes, clean lines and defined but at the same time fragile, silky smooth but yet again clear due to the materials used. As he describes it, art linked to the intimate experiences of the body and time, in search of an interior portrait joined with beauty resulting in essential interlocutor.

Timothy Lee

Timothy graduated, with high honors, from Wesleyan University, having majored in Neuroscience and Behavior, Studio Art (with a concentration in drawing), and Biology (Developmental). Originally intending on attending medical school after graduation in hopes of becoming a physician, Timothy quickly dropped this ambition upon realizing his true passions, which lay in art. However, the impression from years of scientific training is clearly visible in the way he approaches his artwork.

Matthew Day Jackson creates all-encompassing works in a wide range of media that make connections between seemingly disparate themes and narratives, from Impressionist painting to the surface of the moon; art history to rap music; nuclear testing to paranormal activity. Jackson’s work also addresses his theory of the “Horriful,” the belief that everything one does has the potential to evoke both beauty and horror at the same time.

FROM WIKTOR FOR UMAG WITH PHOTOGRAPHER KRISTIINA WILSON #4

Seth a réalisé dans cette pièce, très petite, ce qui le rend d’autant plus impressionnant, l’un de ses immenses personnages, qui s’évade la tête dans un arc-en-ciel. L’effet de profondeur sur les cercles concentriques et la douce lumière qui vient de la fenêtre parachèvent cette superbe réalisation.

“It is both utterly remarkable and terribly ordinary […] But there is no need to stop with one opening. Bore a second hole into the wall and two images, offset but roughly similar, will appear. Continue to drill. Remove the wall piecemeal, minding each change. Picture will stack atop picture, dissolving eventually into the mere impression of light.”

Stephanie Jung est une photographe traitant à travers ses clichés de thèmes comme l’urbanisme, l’identité ou l’accélération. Elle parcouru les rues de nombreuses villes du Japon comme Tokyo, Shibuya ou Osaka, mais aussi d’Europe comme Berlin ou Paris à la recherche de ce perpétuel mouvement et de ce temps qui s’écoule grâce à des photographies utilisant la surimpression. Très graphiques et dynamiques, ses œuvres ne sont pas sans rappeler celle de Pep Ventosa ou de Corinne Vionnet.

JESSE AUERSALO

Asian Portrait
Jesse Auersalo est un illustrateur finlandais très talentueux. Le travail de Jesse est foncé, intimidant, des nuances surréaliste qui fonctionnent parfaitement avec son esthétique unique. Il décrit son travail comme “poli et propre, ainsi que collant et sale”. L’attention au contraste et au rendu des détails minutieux est vraiment impressionnant.

Sui Park

Cell I & II
Sui Park est une artiste et architecte d’intérieur basée à Brooklyn. À l’aide de câbles zip, elle a créé des mailles pour finalement obtenir de magnifiques structures organiques. Ces impressionnantes sculptures semblent presque irréelles et donnent l’illusion de flotter au dessus du sol. Plus de détails en images.

Mobility
The installation spans a corridor of 7-metres width. On the left wall one hundred prosthetic hands arranged in a matrix revolve around their own vertical axis, the movements being controlled by motors. The mirrors they hold reflect the beam of a strong light across the space and onto the opposite wall. What initially seems like an asynchronous, chaotic pattern of movement soon reveals itself as a complex, computational choreography: at first the hundred light spots move around a central point, akin to the celestial dynamics of the planets or the flight pattern of a swarm of insects and creating the impression of a three-dimensional space. Then suddenly this organic oscillation converges to form a Chinese character denoting movement and action.

BARRY X BALL

БАРРИ Х БОЛЛ
Sculptor Barry X. Ball creates unsettling busts and portraits that reference classical sculpture. They are unsettling because he chooses materials (Mexican onyx, lapis lazuli, Italian marble, calcite) with cracks, fissures, and irregularities to give the impression of disfigured faces, skin conditions, or medical anomalies.

EELCO BRAND

1.movi
The oeuvre of Eelco Brand belongs to a pictorial tradition in which landscape and genre scenes play a leading role, but goes beyond the traditional forms of this genre. Realistically looking landscapes are combined with abstract components, absurdity and humour are constantly accompanying the artworks of Eelco Brand. The landscapes seem familiar to us, evoking the impression of having seen them before – stereotypes, completely virtually constructed, but of a strong expressive power. But is not any form of visualisation of landscapes constructed, even those we see in our mind’s eye when we imagine a landscape? The artworks of Eelco Brand encourages us to think about our perception of reality.
