032c Workshop Report #2 (Kiev)

SANAHUNT Cultural Initiative and 032c Workshop/Joerg Koch are pleased to announce the opening of 032c WORKSHOP REPORT #2 (Kiev) on Thursday, May 19. The second installment in an exhibition series that launched in Moscow in 2010, this show will occupy the SANAHUNT GALLERY.

Featuring works by SCOTT CAMPBELL, HELEN MARTEN, OLYMPIA SCARRY and ANA & DANKO STEINER, the exhibition will celebrate the release of 032c’s 21st issue, expanding on its content in three dimensions.

The artists presented may come from vastly different creative backgrounds, yet unifying the works chosen for Kiev is a common theme: they not only directly develop the mission and theme of the latest edition of the magazine, but address their relationship to the body and space. Scott Campbell, a tattoo artist by trade, takes his craft into the proverbial “frame” of the artwork. Helen Marten, who created an original contribution to the latest issue, meanwhile gives us a particularly tactile, even “fleshy” rendering of familiar objects of domestic design. Olympia Scarry navigates the space of the gallery clad in a burka. In Ana and Danko Steiner’s dark photographic study, another cloaked, monolithic image emerges with model John Holland (of SALEM), appearing statuesque and monumental, hooded in heavy textiles. Computer-generated, patterned overlays in Steiner’s series, like Marten’s deployment of Internet icons and Wikipedia-informed networks of reference, export the digital into a post-web, tangible world.

  • Overcoming Originality: MAURIZIO CATTELAN and Gucci Steal Shanghai

    Speaking about his new show at the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, a collaboration with Alessandro Michele of Gucci, artist and curator Maurizio Cattelan says, “We are both fascinated witnesses of the overcoming of originality in our contemporary society.” The exhibition brings together works from more than 30 artists that, like Cattelan’s own oeuvre, question notions of reproduction and newness, considering the lives of copies, and the overdue absolution of the copyist.More
  • METAHAVEN: Version History at the London Institute of Contemporary Arts

    There’s something of a derelict cinema or post-riot feel to “Version History,” the installation which houses art-design collective Metahaven’s latest film. “Eurasia” goes in search of the New Silk Road: Chinese premier Xi Jinping’s multi-billion dollar global trade infrastructure initiative to link East and West, a geopolitically contested space re-envisioned as an epistemologically war-torn landscape.More
