    Interview by Mara Satore (My Art Guide)
    Filming/Editing by Peter Cairns
    In Dubai; Thursday, June 14, 2012

    We spoke with Paris-based multimedia artist Fayçal Baghriche at Satellite, a studio space developed in 2011 by American media artist James Clar and curator Rami Farook in Al Serkal, Dubai. Baghriche spent three months at the Satellite residency this past March, during which time he produced two site-specific works commissioned by Art Dubai as part of their A.I.R. residencies program.

    Fayçal Baghriche was born in 1972 in Algeria, and is currently based in Paris. As an artist, he is concerned with tracing images that disrupt simple representational identification. Baghriche works primarily in photography, video, performance and sculpture. He has exhibited widely both in France and internationally, including: ‘Brooklyn Euphoria’, New York (2004); ‘Architecture of Survival’, Outpost for Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2008); ‘Second Hand’, the Museum of Modern Art, Paris (2010); and ‘The Future of a Promise’ at the 54th Venice Biennial (2011).

    This Fall, Baghriche will exhibit at Berlin-based gallery Campagne Première, with whom he participated in the recent 10. LOOP video art fair in Barcelona.

  3. A Berlin Art Link Production
    Interview by Monica Salazar
    Filming/Editing by Peter Cairns

    Introduction

    During Art Basel this past week, two Dubai-based galleries, Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde (participants of last year’s abc in Berlin) and Green Art Gallery were selected to participate in the Art | Statements sector, marking them as the first Gulf region-based galleries in the 43-year history of Art Basel to be invited for the fair.

    Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde presented works by Rokni Haerizadeh. In the exhibition, the Iranian-born artist creates drawings and a video piece using clips from CNN and printed media over-layed with drawings. Through this, he transforms the images to reveal his personal perspectives on the messages he felt were being sent to the public during Iran’s Green Revolution in 2009.

    Green Art Gallery presented this year a video and sculpture work by recent Columbia graduate, Shadi Habib Allah. The related works serve as a cookie crumb trail of the story surrounding the installation. The artist “commissioned” a black market video camera, which is then taken to a Miami chop shop and recreated into a completely new object, revealing a shiny new chrome exterior and small camera hole, leaving the machine’s functioning in takt. In the video, playing adjacent from the newly reformed camera, you see two men speaking through scripted and unscripted conversations while they rework the outer shell the camera, creating a feeling of ambiguity to the viewer of what is and what is not real about this scenario.

    The New York Times reported on the historic entry of the two galleries in which Marc Spiegler, co-director of Art Basel, was quoted saying, “The fact that you have two galleries from the U.A.E. points to the growth of the region in terms of its artists, galleries, institutions and private collectors”. Both art spaces are located in Dubai’s soon-to-be expanded Alserkal Avenue, which has become a hub for the quickly emerging contemporary art scene in the Gulf region and beyond.

  4. Conductor (2011) by Alexander Chen. Video capture. View live at: mta.me

    Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA's actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli's 1972 diagram.
