Thomas Hirschhorn’s Ruinous South London Gallery Show
07/07/2015
Thomas Hirschhorn’s Ruinous South London Gallery Show“In-Between” at the South London Gallery (SLG) is Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn’s first major solo show in London in many years. Taking as his point of departure Italian Marxist theorist and politician Antonio Gramsci’s statement that “Destruction is difficult. It is as difficult as creation,” Hirschhorn has created a new artwork for the SLG’s main space using the low-grade everyday materials that are a hallmark of his practice. Continuing the artist’s ongoing exploration of the aesthetic of ruins, “In-Between” contributes to a three-year body of work informed by a process of researching, collecting, and analysing the formal composition of ruinous and bomb-damaged locations all over the world. In his artist statement, Hirschhorn explains: “The aesthetic of ‘In-Between’ borrows from known pictures of destruction – destruction by violence, by war, by accident, by nature, by structural-failures, by corruption, by fatality. I have been working since two years with this aesthetics: “Concordia, Concordia”, 2012, “Break-Through”, 2013, “Abschlag” and “Höhere Gewalt”, 2014. “I want to establish a body of work which encompasses Antonio Gramsci’s quote. Without being anecdotic or literal I can testify, that to setup a work in an exhibition-space which gives form to destruction is indeed as difficult as anything else. With ‘In-Between’ I want to create a new form, I want to propose an experience, an art-experience in the range of ‘successes’, failures and in-betweens.” Thomas Hirschhorn “In-Between” is at South London Gallery until September 13, 2015.

Beyoncé-Inspired Skyscraper Greenlit, Turner Painting Kept in Oxford, and More
07/07/2015
Beyoncé-Inspired Skyscraper Greenlit, Turner Painting Kept in Oxford, and More— Beyoncé-Inspired Skyscraper Gets Green Light: “Fans of both gentrification and Beyoncé’s last album may have just found their architectural sweet spot,” begins this Guardian article — a sentence so singularly ridiculous we didn’t dare try to top it. The piece goes on to explain that there is a 78-story skyscraper planned for Melbourne, inspired by Beyoncé’s music video for “Ghost,” in which the singer stares down the camera and recites her lyrics, while draped black cloth billows around her, Marilyn Monroe-style. “For those more on the art than science side,” architects Elenberg Fraser said in a statement, “we will reveal that the form does pay homage to something more aesthetic” — which may well take the title of “most euphemistic Beyoncé description to date.” Unfortunately, a classic 1970s pub, which had just geared up to reopen in 2014, will be demolished in the building’s undulating silver wake. But take comfort in this bit of blind hope: “There are no confirmed reports to suggest that Beyoncé will visit or ever perform at the skyscraper, but that all could change in time,” the Guardian states. Amen. [Guardian, Independent] — Turner Painting Kept in Oxford: The UK’s Ashmolean Museum in Oxford has raised the necessary £860,000 to buy the JMW Turner painting “The High Street, Oxford,” which has been on loan to the collection since 1997. Worth an estimated £3.5 million, the painting was left to the nation in place of inheritance tax, but its value has since surpassed the tax amount due. If the museum had failed to raise the funds, the classical painting would have been unmoored into the marketplace. While the majority of the money came from grants and patron groups, the final £60,000 was raised in just four weeks by Oxford residents and visitors. “It is clear,” said Alexander Sturgis, director of the museum, “that the local community, as well as visitors to the museum from across the world, feel that this picture, the greatest painting of the city ever made, must remain on show in a public museum in Oxford.” [Guardian, BBC] — Third-Party Partners Boost Numbers at Christie’s: In the early 1990s, Christie’s purportedly believed that private financial arrangements could be fatal to public sales — but 25 years later, the auction house is engineering more consigned pre-sold work than ever before. But these aren’t the markings of a typical “guarantee”: the auction house is referring to the new arrangements as “a party with a financial interest,” which effectively averts risk by lassoing in third party backers. “It is becoming more complex and confusing, and that’s not what you want to have in an art market where prices are at this level,” said the economist Olav Velthuis. “With the market expanding and prices rising so high, you want more transparency — but this is resulting in the opposite.” [TAN] — White Cube to Close São Paulo Branch: White Cube will close its São Paulo location after its three-year lease is up, to focus on “special projects” in the region instead. [TAN] — Monet’s Green Thumb: “Not everybody knows quite what a serious and unbelievably knowledgeable gardener and horticulturalist Monet was ... he himself thought he was a better gardener than painter,” said Ann Dumas, curator at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, regarding the forthcoming exhibition “Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse.” [Guardian, Independent, BBC] — Carnegie Mellon Preps Moon Art: A tiny museum will be included in Carnegie Mellon’s moon rover, set to launch next year. Dubbed the “Moon Arts Ark,” it will feature a compact (though not comprehensive) history of life on earth, including visual art. [Artnet] — The Cologne Fine Art Fair will launch a new art fair for contemporary art, called COFA. Its first edition will run November 19-22. [Artnet] —Swiss artist Milo Moiré was arrested in front of the Eiffel Tower for taking naked selfies with tourists — as performance art, the 31-year-old maintains. [Telegraph, Independent]  —Add President Jimmy Carter to the list of artist-statesmen. A new book, “A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety,” coming out today, includes the former president’s paintings and poems. Apparently, Alison Mosshart of The Kills is also dabbling in the medium these days. [WashPo, NYT] Published: July 7, 2015 Read full article here
