Red Fish Factory is de naam van het industriële gebouw van ontwerpers- en kunstenaars team Christoph Broich en Thomas Engels. Deze voormalige textielfabriek bevindt zich in de opkomende buurt rond de Kerkstraat en dichtbij het fameuze loften complex 'Martougin' met meer dan 40 loftappartementen. In het midden van de site werd het dak van een magazijn verwijderd en een centrale patio gecreëerd waar drie units op uitgeven. De patio is een mooie binnentuin die gebruikt kan worden voor (rook-)pauzes, meetings en recepties, om de fietsen veilig te stallen en om gemakkelijk te laden en te lossen.

ENVOY @ GALERIE GRIESMAR-TAMER, PARIS

TAATTII . THE APPEARANCE AND THE THING ITSELF
envoy visits Griesmar&Tamer
10 January 2008 - 16 Fenruary 2008 . Tue thru Sat 11-6

Envoy is happy to announce its visit to Griesmar&Tamer gallery, with a group show and five solo exhibitions that are curated around the theme of the appearance and the thing in itself.

TAATTII is the abbreviation for “The Appearance And The Thing In Itself.” It is a playful reference to TATI, Schopenhauer's comments on Kant's philosophy and the way art (the thing in itself) is interpreted (appearance).
"As it appears" and "In itself" are two ways of looking at "art." In six rooms, a play on the appearance and the thing itself is played out.

In the first room , named Arthur, each artist represented by envoy, is presented with a piece that was created in response to one of five provided quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer.
The second room Darling Companion presents sister exhibitions by James J. Williams III, What Does Darling Mean to Your? and As They Appear Upon Dissection. The works in Darling are studies in relationship power struggles, sadism, healing through bleeding, loving, fucking, and losing our everything. Dissection is the addendum to Darling. It is mourning. It is clear and concise and gilded and black and empties itself as sacrifice to something or someone bigger.
In Rafi, the third room, Raphaël Neal skillfully introduces the uncanny—whether it is an unexpected criminality or a haunting presence—into the mundane everyday and its subtly shifting perspectives. It‘s a direct account of youthful lives unfolding against a rugged landscape in which a strange tenderness is being omitted. Neal is a subtle observer of the ebb and flow of desire and its influence on the sexual dynamics flowing between people.
The fourth room, named Nothing, contains Michael Yinger’s installation "all I know is that I don't know nothin’,” a personalized map of the United States, a summary of everything in one that is about all the trials and tribulations, intense over-analyzing and complete inventory of a persons core being.
The work of Donatien Veismann occupies the fifth room, named Tomato-Ketchup Emperor. The name of the room refers to the 1970 Shuji Terayama movie "Emperor Tomato-Ketchup," in which children take over the power and turn the world into a huge dictatorship. It also refers to the artist’s obsession with Ronald McDonald, the Ketchup clown who, in the artist’s opinion, crystallizes many things: both ideal and scary he is a modern icon, a philosopher with a spider smile ,the symbol of consumption society, ...
Voloptuous Panic is the sixth and last room. Inspired by Weimar bacchanalia, (the title is taken from Mel Gordon's book on Weimar Berlin,) Christoph Broich‘s curious manipulated, sculpted elements populate a weirdly decadent environment. Suspended from the ceiling and spatially isolated through perspectival techniques, Broich’s skinned sculptures focus on deterioration and present the reversal of the natural process: skin and flesh decomposing first and the skeleton remaining.

Now that you have been fed the appearance, it is up to you to look at the things in itself.

"Shortbus, John Cameron Mitchell's penetrating look at the bruised sexuality of contemporary New Yorkers, lives on in this photography exhibit from Crackerfarm, George Duncan, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya (all part of the  film's production team). Though Crackerfarm's intimate images of outsiders posing with "ordinary" citizens keeps close to the film's dual themes of outrageousness and universality, Sepuya's work best captures the Shortbus vision: He's built a treelike structure that reimagines the characters' interconnections as lovers, exes, and friends."

Never Mind the Bollocks - Here's Amanda Lear

 

NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS: HERE’S AMANDA LEAR serves as the vehicle for an exhibition which consists of paintings by Amanda Lear and the work of nine contemporary artists.

 

This international and multidisciplinary exhibition in which the artists are actively involved, reintroduces the childlike games and spirit of the Dada and Surrealist movement by using a popular motive which acts as a playful interrogation of Amanda Lear. Conceptual confusion, symbolic representation and ordered geometry are all part of an ingenuous fragmentation united by nine contemporary artists.

 

Drawing heavily on what has been written about Amanda Lear, as well as on the images that have been spread worldwide, Amanda Lear served as the wellspring of the imagination and the home of inspiration for the artists.

Continued thought processes and investigations on the subject became a means of reuniting conscious and unconscious realms of experience so completely, that the world of dream and fantasy has been joined to the everyday rational world in an absolute reality, a punk surreality.

 

Amanda Lear, Lisa Beck, Christoph Broich, Scott Hug, Michelle Lopez, Gina Magid, Kanshka Raja, Anna  Sew Hoy, Ryan Steadman, James J. Wiliams III
