Upcoming Exhibition


The Body is Victory and Defeat of Dreams
K-Gold Temporary Gallery, Lesvos, Greece

 

Κ-Gold Temporary Gallery, the contemporary art platform founded by Nicolas Vamvouklis on Lesvos island, presents the art project “The Body is Victory and Defeat of Dreams” (from Katerina Anghelaki-Rooke’s poem), that comprises a group exhibition, performances and an educational program in collaboration with the Municipal Gallery of Mythimna.

Curator Dr. Athena Hadji focuses on the human body as a field of glory and a battlefield, as victory and defeat, as the axis around which the exhibition is structured. Participating artists were selected accordingly, so were their works, some already realized, others as special commissions. “The Body is Victory and Defeat of Dreams” celebrates the human body in all its glory and decay. It employs works in various media, various scales, various material manifestations, in order to highlight the variety of ways in which the human body unfolds. Placed in a historical edifice, that bears traces of successive changes of use through time, the works converse with the architectural shell and the texts that inspired the choice of each work. The visitors are thus called upon adapting their somatic response each time as well as respond in toto to the architectural, artwork, and literary stimulants, coming to face in the end their own physical challenges and their personal boundaries. With the support of NEON.

Participating artists | Arcangelo Sassolino, Aimilia Giannopoulou, Lydia Dambassina, Alix Marie, Andreas Stylianoudakis, Christos Mouchas, HOPE, Anna Maria Samara, HART+LËSHKINA, Lito Kattou, Orestis Lazouras, Gjergj Bodari, Louise Plaze

Publication Launch

MDAM
Mia Dudek + Alix Marie
The Plantation Journal

Roman Road Gallery, London

Saturday 13th Of May
2 - 6pm  

 

MDAM is a collaboration between The Plantation Journal and artists Mia Dudek and Alix Marie made on the occasion of their eponymous exhibition at Roman Road.
This new publication takes a compelling look at the artists' experimental approaches to photography and sculpture. While their current exhibition gathers installations and more sculpture-based works, the MDAM book is a playful puzzle that brings together their photographic practices exploring bodily matters.

The Plantation Journal is an art initiative and project space, run by Trine Stephensen, showcasing explorations within the curatorial and photographic fields in the contemporary arts through exhibitions, workshops, events and publications. It presents a carefully curated selection of photographic works related to sculptural photography. MDAM is exploring the format of an exhibition catalogue, introducing work that is not necessarily seen in the show, but that has been essential for the creation of the exhibition at Roman Road.

PHOTOWORLD MAGAZINE CHINA

Excerpt from Lucy Soutter's new article Expanded Photography: Persistence of the Photographic for Chinese magazine Photoworld :

"Alix Marie is fascinated by the photographic index—the power of the photograph to provide a direct physical trace of the thing photographed. In Orlando, another sculptural installation, a viewer encounters a huge heap of rock-like lumps, which on close inspection have photographic surfaces that looks fleshy, like some combination of skin, wax, pink marble or meat. Each photographic object is made out of close-up photographic prints of Marie’s boyfriend’s skin, mediated with layers of cracked and melted wax, scanned and reprinted. Marie plays on photography’s ability both to capture surface detail and to provide a precious souvenir of intimate moments. Blown up so much larger than life, Orlando’s skin is kind of creepy, and the piece as a whole has a rather obsessive feeling that reflects our attempt to use photography to hold on on to those we love. Other artists working in a related vein (who, like Marie attended the Royal College of Art) include Darren Harvey-Regen and Jonny Briggs, both of whom play with the notion of photographic trace and the push and pull between reality and representation."

French photographer Alix Marie‘s images will have you looking more than once, her exploration of the mutated body pushing the bounds of the medium and our comfort level. Beginning with nude images of herself and those closest to her, Marie takes her photographs and transforms them into large-scale installations and sculptures. The bloated proportions and crumpled flesh deflect and divert from the photograph’s origin, resulting in behemoth forms of something not altogether human. Targeting our relationship and unease with our bodies as well as implied undercurrents of femininity, the series presents a naked intimacy both stripped to the bone and deeply impassioned. We asked Marie about her process and where these figures come from.
