  2. Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien dedicates a show to Hubert Schmalix focusing on his current paintings, but also includes selected earlier works. Schmalix has painted two major new work series for the exhibition: female nudes interwoven with spacious carpet patterns and landscapes, idyllic places taken from Romantic-era paintings or “rustic” regions stylised into pop-art-like imagery. Schmalix’s gouaches on cardboard are characterised by a more painterly touch. Curator: Florian Steininger. May 6th to July 12th, 2015.

    Das Bank Austria Kunstforum widmet Hubert Schmalix eine umfangreiche Werkschau. Aktuelle Gemälde bilden neben ausgewählten älteren Arbeiten den Schwerpunkt der Ausstellung. Für die Ausstellung hat Schmalix zwei große neue Werkserien gemalt. Zum einen werden Frauenakte mit großflächigen Teppichmustern verwoben. Zum anderen widmet sich Schmalix aber auch dem Genre Landschaft. Idyllische Orte aus Gemälden der Malerei der Romantik oder selbst erlebte „rustikale“ Gegenden sind Vorbild, die zum poppigen Image stilisiert werden. Kurator: Florian Steininger. 6.5. - 12.7.2015.

  3. Site-specific installation. Light projectors, sound system, architecture. Paris, FR. 2014.

    kinema- : motion (from gr. kínêma)
    -tope : place (from gr. topos)

    Kinematope is a site-specific installation developed for Nuit Blanche at the Gare d’Austerlitz in Paris. It takes place at a future train platform of the station, half kilometre long.

    Kinematope is specific twice over. First, for being formulated as a response to the perceptual qualities and inner structure of the place it activates. Second, its kinematic nature is directly connected to the function of the train station itself: transit, transport, motion.

    Kinematope uses ephemeral and intangible materials, projected light and sound, to set the space in motion. It makes use of elements from the cinema apparatus to generate a spatial film. It is a direct filmic experience that omits the mediation of the camera, transporting the observer into a virtual space-time and maintaining at the same time the real, physical bonds of the body with its environment.

    This project has been possible thanks to Jose Manuel Gonçalves, Eva Albarran & co, Mairie de Paris, Gare de Austerlitz and Novelty. Thanks to Guillaume Benaich, Arnaud Bazenet, Guillaume …, Houcine Pradinaud, Marceau Gouret, Sylvie Pitet, Denis Julien, Audrey Turpin, Dariush Kowsar, Chloe Lopes, Yacine Ouagnouni, Nicholas Champion and all production, technical, mediation and security staff involved.

  4. Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Julie Oppermann. Coming from a background in neuroscience, Oppermann is primarily concerned with exposing the immaterial and subjective aspects of visual perception. By offsetting layers of similar patterns atop one another, she creates complex and stimulating compositions of moiré interference patterns that create intensely sensory experiences.

    Mark Moore Gallery proudly presents "Domesticated Landscapes," an exhibition of new works from Brooklyn-based artist Jean Shin. Shin’s multi-disciplinary practice explores the codification of cultural signifiers embedded in everyday materials. By re-contextualizing familiar objects, the artist brings our attention to the history, mythology, and symbolic importance that we project (often unconsciously) onto commonplace objects.

    Thank you to Galerie Krinzinger

    Waqas Khan‘s work is a meditative pause in the present moment, taking the form of a series of highly precise yet organic patterns composed of dots or lines. Khan has been working on his exhibition at the Galerie Krinzinger in Vienna for the last year, conscientiously considering how to fill the giant exhibition space with his works and how his works will make the space visible. The exhibition, titled Acoustics of Life / Parterre ran from Feb. 03 – 28, 2015 and left a profound impression on the international art scene.
    Khan spent a three month residency in the Galerie Krinzinger Project Space while he was working on the pieces for the show. The works are unexpectedly site-specific and so much more than they appear from first glance: they need to be seen from multiple scales and on different registers to reveal various patterns and discontinuities. The result of the work is less the presentation of ink on paper drawings so much as the construction of a moment, a pause, a much needed silence.

    Khan’s works escape capture in words and exist in excess of any explanation. It is not sufficient to simply describe what they are or how they look: they require the presence of the viewer to encounter them in their scale and in the gallery space. “I want the viewers to remember what they saw,” explains Khan, “they should remember what they saw, and they should have questions.”

    Waqas has a remarkable intensity and is both eccentric and approachable. His character is evident in his unconventional working habits. Khan sleeping during the day and working at night, hunched over the paper, holding with both hands a permanent pen that records each stroke with an unforgivable precision, on special tables that he has to design himself in order to make the works. The works are an index of Khan’s working process and a story that he is telling.
