Terre di immigrati ed emigranti/Lands of immigrants and emigrants

(“Migratiegebieden”)


Red Fish Factory, Helmstraat 139 - Antwerpen
17 tot 21 december 2010, Opening donderdag 16 december om 18.00 uur

Arteco organiseert in samenwerking met Coalface, Arti-Mista, Fondazione 107 en Red Fish Factory een uitwisselingsproject voor jonge en beloftevolle kunstenaars. Turijn en Antwerpen (en bij uitbreiding de Limburgse Mijnstreek, Coalface) zijn kenmerkend voor hun migratiegeschiedenis. Het zijn kleurrijke regio's waar allochtonen en autochtonen samen zoeken naar een eigen identiteit temidden van een specifieke realiteit.

Dit project wil enerzijds een blik werpen op deze migratiegebieden en op de identiteit van migranten. Anderzijds wil het project waarde toekennen aan de innovatieve rol van de kunstenaar en wil het jonge kunstenaars een kans geven om in dialoog te gaan met anderen. Een workshop in Turijn en één in Antwerpen zal dit aspect van ontmoeting en van samen creëren benadrukken.

26 kunstenaars werden via een wedstrijd geselecteerd. Deze kunstenaars hebben allen een diverse culturele achtergrond en zijn actief in verschillende kunsttakken: fotografie, schilderkunst, muziek, dans, fashion design, installatie, performance, etc. Dit resulteert in twee tentoonstellingen met als titel ‘Terre di immigrati ed emigranti/Lands of immigrants and emigrants' (‘Migratiegebieden'). De eerste expo gaat door in de huidige jongerenhoofdstad, nl Turijn, en de tweede tentoonstelling vindt plaats in Antwerpen, de Europese jongerenhoofdstad in 2011.


Deelnemende kunstenaars:
Derya Akgüre, Francesca Arri, auroraMeccanica, Cornelia Badelita, Giorgio Bevilacqua, Line Boogaerts, Nicolas Buissart, Simona Castaldo, Michela Depetris, Cameron Foden, Alessandra Giannandrea, Cecio Grano, Thomas Grodal, L'Artimista, Gitte Le Bruyn, Daniele Mana, Ludo Moris, Line Oshin, Beatrice Piva, Yael Plat, Mikes Poppe, Fausto

CHRISTOPH BROICH

10 | Red Fish Factory, Helmstraat 139

De laatste drie jaren kreeg Crhistoph Broich heel wat internationale aandacht met
zijn sculpturale installaties die staan voor gerichte sensitiviteit naar het lichaam en
sterfelijkheid. Zijn werk is een manifestatie van de complexe en onrustige correlatie
tussen leven en werk, materiaal en concept. Nadat de New York Times hem tot de
beste artiest benoemde met ‘The girl who sold her soul to the devil and won’ (geïnspireerd door en gepresenteerd met Amanda Lear) en tentoongesteld in de galerij Envoy (New York, 2006) ging Broich verder met het exposeren van dit werk, onder eensgezinde toejuiching. Zo verscheen het werk bijvoorbeeld ook op de Slick Art Fair te Parijs. Le Monde gaf een lovende kritiek. In 2007 toonde de kunstenaar ‘Voluptuous Panic’ in galerij Envoy en galerij Griesmar-Tamer (in het huis van Molière) te Parijs.

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.

Envoy presents Christoph Broich at Unisex Salon

CHRISTOPH BROICH @ UNISEX
As part of envoy's ongoing extra muros projects, Christoph Broich will have his Lara Wo Bist Du? performance at Unisex @ The Delancey (168 Delancey btw Clinton and Attorney) July 5th. RSVP is required at listlistlist@gmail.com.

Lara, wo bist du? (Lara where are you?) is an ongoing project by Christoph Broich, which started in 1993 and which will end once Lara has been found. Lara was the girl in a video piece Christoph Broich created in 1993. When the artist wanted to continue the series devoted to her, he was unable to locate her, and has since been unable to find her.

Lara, wo bist du? became an obsessive series of work in search of Lara. The series consists of five
separate pieces: the actual video piece, a video still light box installation, an inter-active performance documented by polaroids and two sculptures.

For the performance piece, the audience is invited to put on a red wig, a replica of Lara’s hairdo. Much as the prince in Cinderella sliding the glass slipper on a number of women’s feet, Broich continues his quest for Lara by putting a wig on innocent bystanders. As with a lot of Broich’s work, the “shell” of the work remains, in this case polaroids, referencing “wanted” posters that intriguingly document the performance.

 Christoph Broich, 'Voluptuous Panic' at Envoy, New York

5 July thru 4 August 2007 Tue thru Sat 11-6

Over the past two years, Christoph Broich has received international attention with sculptural installations that have come to stand for a willful sensitivity to the body and mortality. His work is a manifestation of the complex and unquiet correlation between life and work, material and concept.

In his Kopf (Head) series, the artist successfully expands his visual vocabulary by creating a cohesive environment around a single element, the head. Cut up iconic items of clothing and fabric are collaged onto busts and then painted with several coats of latex. Upon completion, as with all of Broich’s meticulously made sculptures, the bust is destroyed and the shell (skin) is all that remains. Broich’s skinned sculptures focus on deterioration and present the reversal of the natural process: skin and flesh decomposing first and the skeleton remaining. Suspended from the ceiling, the heads create an eerie field of beheaded individuals.


Inspired by Weimar bacchanalia, his most recent work, Voluptuous Panic (the title is taken from Mel Gordon's book on Weimar Berlin), invites the viewer to become part of the action. Understanding the importance of absence as well as presence in the deployment of his sculpted elements within a real space, Broich proves to be a master at orchestration and placement.

Spatially isolated through perspectival techniques, curious manipulated, cast characters populate the weirdly decadent environment. The choice of mannequins, empty, non-threatening 'everyone' figures is deliberate, its effect one of alienation.


Choreographed single and multiple groups of characters, seated or lying on the counter of a bar or nightclub, are enmeshed in an emotional confrontation with an unspecified narrative. At one end of the counter, a protagonist’s Siamese body curves back in spontaneous recoil. Each posture and gesture suggesting urgency and concern, tension and empathy. At the other end, a figure leans forward, as if wanting to move out of the drama, but its inability to move seems to frustrate the desire to act. All of the characters in Voluptuous Panic sustain a bland look. They stare into emptiness as they lean on enigmatic moments frozen in space and time, a singular, inexplicable silent moment.

 

Christoph Broich was born in Stadt Blankenberg, Germany. He graduated from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium in 1994. The artist had his first exhibition at envoy with “Never Mind The Bollocks: Here’s Amanda Lear,” in April 2006. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York. (text: Enoy)

 

Lara, wo bist du, a video and performance project that started in 1993 will be featured at Unisex Salon at the Delancey on July 5th. Check http://envoy.typepad.com/ for details.

Save the 'Zeemanshuis', Antwerp

zeemanshuis4755

Sometimes decisions of cities' governments are just unbelievable and not to understand for a cities' inhabitants.
This time it is neither to understand for esthetical reasons nor it is for social reasons. The 'Zeemanshuis' was originally build as refuge and accomodation for seafarers and is still in use for all kind of people who search an anchor in Antwerp (workers, seamen, tourists, truckers), who are not able to pay for expensive hotels. Moreover it hosts some important social institutions.
After having invested more than 3 million Euro for the renovation of the building (it is in an excellent state now), the city of Antwerp will knock it down, because.... ??? ... the reason is not really clear... because it is situated diagonal to the streets? ...

zeemanshuis4762
The local action group did not get the answers on their simple questions...

Now they want to start legal proceedings. 38 artists help to collect the financial means by giving an artwork for auction.
This is the point where YOU can help!

same material, different manner of working

Joyce Caris presents a very interesting work in latex in the course of the last years exhibition of the Royal Academie of Fine Arts Antwerp (Zonstraat 20-24).
The installation reminds of an anatomy room in the university of medical sciences. The latex sculptures are made in moulds taken from persons and children's dolls. Single bodily parts from different people are put together in showboxes: a box for ears, a box for noses and another one for penisses...

Joyce Caris 'A Perfect Skin', 2007

In contradiction to that Christoph Broich creates sculptures. He put the latex (in combination with fabric and other materials) over the sculptures and destroys them when the work is ready.
