“Escric amb rius i turons / sobre el paper de les planes”    Perejaume*

 

Spring has been marked by a radical transformation of our ways of moving, relating and exchanging. Suddenly everything has changed. Our perception of everyday things and also of the most relevant things has been questioned. What seemed essential to us becomes not essential. We have realized the precariousness of life, we have known the importance of solidarity, of family, of our loved ones, of our environment. Nature and the environment have also taken a leading role that they did not have before.

 

Facing this, we have dared to ask the artists of the gallery to participate in this exhibition that we now present, with works which they have carried out during this time of social isolation. They are diverse answers to the same question, they have in common the use of paper as a medium, common for some –like Victoria Civera or Perejaume– and unprecedented for others –like Hannah Collins or Annika Kahrs–.

 

The making of these works has been able to become an escape route, a tool to continue working despite the difficulties and, at the same time, they allow the spectator to enter the intimacy of the studios and the heads of their creators. They are, in most cases, works made at home, with house’s tools, testimonies of a unique and, we hope, unrepeatable moment.

 

‘Think about the size of the universe, then brush your teeth and go to bed’ takes the title of a work by the artist Annika Kahrs. Starting with humor, it invites us to reflect on the balance between micro and macro levels and on the search for meaning and identity within the unfathomable universe of which we are a part, reflections that become fundamental in the current context.

 

The result of this exhibition has been a series of diverse works. In some cases, we see that the themes that worried the artists, before the pandemic, have maintained their leading role or, even in others, they show fragments of their work process and are linked to future projects.

 

In other cases, we find proposals that speak directly of the current moment: reflections on personal relationships, the political situation, messages from the media or vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly.

 

Finally, we would also find a third group of works that focus on observing the closest environment and nature.

Caio Reisewitz Territorio Común Mamm

 22.05 – 11.11.2019 

MAMM, Medellín, Colombia

 

Territorio común. Nuevas incorporaciones a la Colección MAMM incluye alrededor de cincuenta obras que dan algunas luces sobre el devenir del arte reciente en Colombia y más allá. Predomina la pintura aunque la instalación y el video también están presentes de manera decisiva. Más que sugerir temas o preocupaciones específicas, la exposición es un vistazo a los nuevos derroteros de la Colección del Museo y a algunas líneas de trabajo que los últimos años han abierto o consolidado.

 

Los últimos diez años han implicado una transformación profunda para el Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín. Primero, con su llegada al edificio Talleres Robledo en Ciudad del Río en 2009 y, posteriormente, con la apertura del edificio Expansión en septiembre de 2015. Paralelamente –o quizás de manera un poco adelantada respecto a estos aspectos más visibles– el MAMM introducía una serie de cambios y reformulaciones de su proyecto museológico y cultural para Medellín y el país.

Poco a poco, este crecía y se modificaba hasta convertirse en el programa de exposiciones locales nacionales e internacionales, programas educativos y académicos, cine, una sala de estudio para la comunidad, etc., que conforman el Museo de hoy. Durante estos años también la Colección del Museo se ha nutrido con obras que reflejan tanto los cambios que la institución ha vivido como la programación que le ha dado vida.

 

 La Colección MAMM surge desde la fundación de la institución como fondo patrimonial con el que soportar la creación de la figura legal del Museo y también como acervo que permitiera la conservación, investigación y difusión del arte antioqueño y colombiano moderno y contemporáneo. Por la manera en que los orígenes de la institución están vinculados con la creación de la Colección podemos decir hoy que este es una parte intrínseca de su surgimiento y consolidación. Así, la Colección MAMM se presenta no sólo como un recorrido por el arte Antioqueño y Colombiano de la segunda mitad del siglo XX y lo que va del XXI sino, de manera significativa, como memoria institucional y apuesta programática.

Instituto Tomie Ohtake

Exhibition 25.04 – 26.05.2019

 

At the outset of the exhibition-cum-essay curated by Luise Malmaceda and Paulo Miyada to be held at Instituto Tomie Ohtake is the oeuvre of Miguel Bakun (1909-1963), an artist from Paraná, a state in southern Brazil. As the curators have noted, the event is meant to reflect on representation of landscapes in Brazil’s subtropical region that have “so often been sidelined by the eminently warm-climate, coastal beach imaginary of a country whose picture-postcard sites are mostly found north of the Tropic of Capricorn.”

 

Sponsored by Banco Barigüi, Grupo Barigüi, Tradener and Moageira Irati, the exhibition has been designed to feature, in unprecedented format in São Paulo, a large cutout from Bakun’s production contextualized in the history of Brazilian art. The exhibition comprises three large groups engaged in dialogue with the artist: one specifically covering landscapes from southern Brazil, in particular the state of Paraná, consisting of pieces by Alfredo Andersen (1869 – 1935), Bruno Lechowski (1887– 1941), Caio Reisewitz (1967 –) and Marcelo Moscheta (1976 –); another situating Bakun within Brazilian modernism together with Alberto da Veiga Guignard (1896 – 1962), Alfredo Volpi (1896 – 1988), Iberê Camargo (1914 – 1994) and José Pancetti (1902 – 1998); and a third group made up of contemporary artists who, like Bakun, found in landscape an inexhaustible source of investigation, as for example Marina Camargo (1980 –), Lucas Arruda (1983 –) and Fernando Lindote (1960 –).

Museo de Antioquia, Casa del Encuentro, Antioquia, Colombia

Inauguración 4.12.2018 – 18.30h

Exposición 4.12.2018 – 17.2.2019

 

Curador Alejandro Castellote

 

Exposición del artista brasileño Caio Reisewitz (São Paulo, 1967), en la que presenta una instalación en gran formato acompañada de 19 fotografías, intervenidas mediante collage. En 2014, Caio Reisewitz presentó en una exposición individual en el ICP de Nueva York experimentos en forma de collage que había estado desarrollando desde 2008. En ellos, Reisewitz mira la ciudad «a lo lejos», desde la frondosidad de la naturaleza que rodea São Paulo.  

 

La exposición Biblioteca reúne por primera vez escenarios pertenecientes a los diferentes periodos de su práctica con el collage. Para la intervención creada específicamente para el Museo de Antioquia, Caio Reisewitz utiliza imágenes monumentales en las que conviven la densidad de la selva con los libros, una metáfora de la acumulación de conocimiento, dispuestos en un abigarramiento semejante al de los árboles. Documentos escritos, que el tiempo ha convertido en monumentos, coexisten con la naturaleza de la que provienen. En esos murales se inscriben asimismo, a modo de realidad dual y discordante, menciones a los problemas que afectan a las sociedades contemporáneas. La superposición de imágenes de archivo en los collages refiere a los problemas que afectan al ámbito geopolítico de Brasil y Colombia, pero no tienen el protagonismo estereotipado que habitualmente ocupan la violencia, la corrupción o las desigualdades sociales en las representaciones de lo latinoamericano.

Simultaneous Eidos — Guangzhou Image Triennial 2017 will be held from December 15, 2017 to March 8, 2018 at Guangdong Museum of Art. The predecessor of Simultaneous Eidos — Guangzhou Image Triennial was Guangzhou International Photography Biennial Exhibition hosted by the Guangdong Museum of Art, which was one of the major international photography biennials in China. Its basic purpose is to uphold the humanistic standpoint with international horizon and sociology of images and participate and promote the development of contemporary photography and culture in China. Reviewing the past three photography biennials (in 2005, 2007 and 2009), each exhibition established a theme and academic orientation focused on the history of photographic photography in order to showcase contemporary photographic practices. At the same time, the passion of national art museums for photography research and collection is ignited.

Pina Luz Pinacoteca de São Paulo

25.11.2017 – 5.3.2018

 

Oito fotografias de Caio Reisewitz, recentemente adquiridas pela Pinacoteca por meio de doação feita durante a SP-Arte 2016, serão expostas na sala A. Trata-se de uma série intitulada Altamira, em que o artista documenta a região da floresta de Belo Monte, delimitada pelo rio Xingú, que desaparecerá ao término da construção da terceira maior hidrelétrica do mundo na região. As fotografias mostram uma natureza intocada, onde a presença humana parece não existir, expondo o paradoxo de que em breve a floresta não estará mais lá. O trabalho de Reisewitz será mostrado ao lado da sala de pinturas de paisagem da mostra de longa duração da Pina, permitindo a reflexão sobre a representação da natureza no século XIX e na contemporaneidade.

Lives and works in São Paulo

 

 

The register of a high-speed changing nature is one of the subjects that articulates Caio Reisewitz’s photographic work and, in this sense, his images are placed in a tradition in which photographic means are witnesses and capture ephemeral realities. The activity of man on the planet, and in certain areas in particular, radically modifies the appearance of the landscape.

 

His photographs, that are mostly large format, are characterized by their frontality and by a spectacular clarity that shows an exuberant nature and a unreal utopian beauty. On one occasion he himself commented: ‘sometimes these images don’t seem real, utopian they are, but they are true, it is the pure reality’.
