On view from September 1 through 21 October, screen-skins-2 at Galerie Max Mayer, Dusseldorf: “Tishan Hsu’s practice conveys an embodied technology, centered on the cognitive and physical effects of transformative technologies on our lives. To address these issues, Hsu consciously chooses to use traditional media, such as painting and sculpture, which evoke a feeling of ‘slowness’ that resonates with the viewer’s direct physical experience in perceiving the works. The works create a sense of illusion of body and screen, while at the same time becoming objects in their own right. It is in this paradoxical situation that a hybrid experience of two and three-dimensional spaces begins to take shape. Often, Hsu’s works seem to float, at times hovering over the floor, detaching from the walls or mounting on wheels. Their curved corners, already introduced in the 80s, feel like precursors to the app icons on our smartphones.”
Cassie Packard recently profiled Jes Fan in the September 2023 issue of Artforum: In 2018, Jes Fan, then in residence at Brooklyn arts nonprofit Recess, approached a local for-hire synthetic-biology lab with an unusual request. The artist, whose conceptually and materially complex work often showcases his facility with glassblowing—which he sharpened while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design—commissioned the laboratory to synthesize eumelanin for use as a sculptural material.
Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork has been awarded a 2023 Joan Mitchell Fellowship. Every year, the Joan Mitchell Fellowship awards fifteen artists working in the fields of painting and sculpture with a significant financial support, granted over five years.
On view August 18th through December 17, 2023 at ICA Philadelphia: Moveables brings together the work of five artists—Jes Fan, Nikita Gale, Hannah Levy, Ken Lum, and Oren Pinhassi—who are rethinking functional design and its intimate relationship to the human body. Whether reminiscent of a living room, lighting rig, toothbrush holder, or chandelier, these artworks invite us to imagine new possibilities for the objects that shape our daily lives, including who they are made for and how they might be used.
Tishan Hsu is participating in the fourth edition of the Future of Today Biennial at the Today Art Museum in Beijing. To Your Eternity, the fourth installment of the Today Art Museum’s art and technology-themed biennial, zooms ever slightly away from an obsession with the now and the next, but revels in unlikely, luminous juxtapositions across geography and time. It will be on view from July 23 through October 15, 2023.
And the Moon Be Still as Bright recently opened at Harper’s Gallery New York in collaboration with Civil Art and The Here and There Co. The exhibition will run through August 18, featuring works by Joeun Kim Aatchim, Vincent Cy Chen, Hyegyeong Choi, Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork, Alexa Kumiko Hatanaka, Mimi Jung, Ho Jae Kim, Antonia Kuo, Ajay Kurian, Heidi Lau, Jennie Jieun Lee, Cole Lu, Erica Mao, Suchitra Mattai, Jacqueline Qiu, Pauline Shaw, Kyungmi Shin, Astra Huimeng Wang, Ye Qin Zhu.
Tales of Soil and Concrete is a new exhibition opening at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery London from July 13th to August 12th, 2023. Participating artists include Anselm Kiefer, Arturo Kameya, Alison Saar, Jacob Littlejohn, Yun-Fei Ji, Brett Goodroad, Henry Shum, Sophia Loeb and Allison Janae Hamilton.
Tales of Soil and Concrete traces various artistic approaches to myth and mythmaking in rural and urban contexts, examining how these environments affect the origin and propagation of such narratives. With an emphasis on cyclical systems – growth and harvest, construction and destruction, appearance and disappearance – the exhibition interrogates how productive processes give way to memory and nostalgia for that which is lost, leaving scarred landscapes, physical and psychological, which we make sense of through narrative, representation, and ritual.
Tishan Hsu appears on the cover of Numéro China Summer 2023 issue, featuring an interview with Venus Lau.
從John Coltrane / Rashied Ali《Interstellar Space》到John Tilbury / Marcus Schmickler《Variety》，二重形式的微密本質不時釀製出最扣人心弦的即興音樂。The Empty Gallery隆重呈獻《Dialogues》，兩對合作已久的音樂夥伴Ko Ishikawa / Joel Ryan與Jean-Luc Guionnet / Daichi Yoshikawa將帶來一場與別不同的即興演奏音樂會。率先演奏的是電腦與笙二重奏，緊接著為擴音色士風與音響回授的搭配。兩項演奏探索的異常樂器組合，在聆賞上彷彿互相糅合，併發出既前衛亦古老的音樂奏章。
Ko Ishikawa (石川高) 是一位受學於日本皇室導師古典訓練的笙樂演奏家，亦是當代雅樂團伶樂舍及Evan Parker電聲樂隊成員。縱然受傳統雅樂訓練的音樂家多涉足現代古典音樂，Ko是當中少數從事拓展實驗音樂與自由即興組織的音樂家。
Joel Ryan堪稱一代美國發明家 / 作曲家的典範。他最初受科學教育，其後逐漸移遷至音樂領域。就讀三藩市密爾斯學院時期，他曾與Robert Ashley及David Behrman同門，又加入了協助奠定矽谷地位的新興組織artist-hacker-radicals。他從其科學底子中借鑑，開創了應用在原聲樂器中的數碼信號處理系統。自1984年，Joel加入阿姆斯特丹STEIM並廣泛地與藝術家和音樂家合作，包括Evan Parker、William Forsyth、George Lewis、Steina Vasulka及Jerry Hunt。
Jean-Luc Guionnet是一位紮根巴黎的多棲樂器演奏家、作曲家及藝術家。他以能夠產生「有聲思考和行動」場景劃分作多個渠道的音樂實踐。他主要從事電聲範疇的工作，同時兼及自由即興音樂，演奏中音色士風、高音色士風、教堂管風琴和鋼琴，亦不時與Daichi Yoshikawa、Eric La Casa、Sejiro Murayama、Eric Cordier、Thomas Bonvalet Taku Unami等人物合作。
Daichi Yoshikawa (吉川大地) 是一位紮根於柏林及倫敦的音樂家及單車手。作為倫敦Cafe Oto一帶豐沃之地的新世代音樂家之一，他以自由即興的聲場為出發點，以回授與物件的運作為形式，把個人研究轉化為表演之聲。Daichi熱衷於能夠透過即場演出的緊湊感共同建構的空間。他的作品是音調、音量與姿態動作等極端裡的波動與起伏。
