James Clar’s Iris Was a Pupil on View At Carbon 12

Posted November 5th by in Art

Carbon 12 gallery in Dubai presents the solo exhibition of the American multi-media artist James Clar, Iris was a Pupil, which opens today. As the title clearly suggests it, the new works are about the sensation of visual stimuli, the constant challenge of finding new viewpoints, and the demand to keep seeing things from fresh perspectives. “Iris was a Pupil” (also the title of a song by techno legends Autechre) also calls the connotation of synaesthesia to mind. The theme of crossing borders is always present in the work of Clar, who lives and works between New York and Dubai: not only in the sense of redefining the physical limitations and boundaries of media (mediums), but also in the metaphysical sense of investigating subjects such as nationalism and globalism in the age of social technologies. Here, he takes a step further, blurring the lines between dreams and reality, synthetic and real. Iris Was a Pupil opens today November 5 and will be on view until December 8, 2012 at Carbon 12, Warehouse D37, Alserkal Avenue, Street 8, Al Quoz 1, Dubai

FAILE in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Posted November 2nd by in Art, Culture

While in town for the unveiling of a new permanent sculpture in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Brooklyn-based artistic collective FAILE worked with local Mongolian artists on a mural. They stenciled an image of a young girl clutching a skateboard – a nod to the quickly modernizing nature of Mongolia contrasted by its vast unpaved landscape – on the wall of an archway located in the central university district of Ulan Bator. Each Mongolian artist worked on customizing the girl’s dress in their own style. The emerging Mongolian artists are recent finalists of the Tiger Translate Festival and were selected by a prestigious panel of judges that included the National Arts Council.

Joseph Beuys Iphigenie @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

Posted October 30th by in Art

One of Joseph Beuys’ most powerful action events was Titus Andronicus/Iphigenie, performed on 30 May 1969 in the Theater am Turm in Frankfurt, for Experimenta 3. Wearing a fur coat, Beuys appeared on a darkened stage with a shining white horse. He used the myth and the drama of Iphigenia to draw attention to the freedom and the creativity of the individual. Here, William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus (1589-92), with its excessive violence and cruelty, reminiscent (in the context of this performance) of Nazi crimes, is linked with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Iphigenie auf Tauris (1779), in which Iphigenia – the personification of humanity – redeems her brother Orestes through her love and her forgiveness. Joseph Beuys Iphigenie is on view now until January 27, 2013 at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, 69 avenue du Général Leclerc 93500 Pantin
