        • WORKS ON PAPER II: Equilibrium No.8, Boundaries by Isaac Chong Wai


          from Momentum Worldwide Added 185 4 0

          The body extensions which generate traces and symmetrical balance unconsciously create a dialogue with one another by means of body language. The movement of the arms creates boundaries in geometrical forms and explores the human form and the boundaries among people. We were quiet and paying attention to draw the area that we could reach and meanwhile, we were listening to the combined sound made by the drawings. By the movements and the instructions that the artist gave, a record of our bodies was marked. This performance was done on a large-sized paper and the place of each performer was determined by the artist. In this sense, the form of the human shape was lightly deconstructed by the overlapping drawings. The instruction is: the artist counts from 1 to 5, then all participants start drawing. There is no limit of time, however, the only limit is that of the material, the charcoals. Once the charcoals cannot be used anymore, participants stop drawing. The artist listens, when there is no longer any sound of drawing, he counts again 5 times and then everyone leaves. ISAAC CHONG WAI is a Hong Kong artist and MFA student at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in Germany and received his BA in Visual Arts (Hons.) from the Academy of Visual Art in Hong Kong Baptist University. He works with diverse art forms, including performance, site-specific installation, public art and multimedia. He is perceptive and insightful in expressing and situating exquisite concepts intuited from living space and the surroundings. Chong’s video, Equilibrium No.8 Boundaries, received honorary mention at the Award of the 2nd OZON International Video Art Festival in Katowice, Poland, in 2013. He was awarded the first runner-up prize for the 2012 Hong Kong Contemporary Art Award. He participated in IAM (International Art Moves) in Dresden, Germany in 2012. Chong has also been shown in a solo-exhibition at the Academy of Visual Arts Gallery in 2011.

          • WORKS ON PAPER II - MNM by Christian Graupner with Mieko Suzuki & Ming Poon


            from Momentum Worldwide Added 90 4 0

            MNM portrays the Hiroshima born sound artist Mieko Suzuki and the Singaporian dancer Ming Poon in their sound- and body performances and generates an ongoing media concert that constantly creates new video and sound clusters. The headstrong canonical composition of vocal and percussion loops depicts the topic of total (body) control in golden times of casino-capitalism and its meltdown. The protagonists’ performances are directly connected to the form and materiality of a triptych frame and a huge hacked Maneki-Neko derived figure which underlines the sculptural character of MNM. Visitors are invited to co-compose and influence the flow of the so called Humatic Re-Performance by feeding and operating the triple channel installation like a gambling-machine or to control MNM like a musical instrument. CHRISTIAN GRAUPNER, the Berlin based Director, Media Artist & Producer studied graphic arts & developed interactive audio visual concepts. As a composer & music producer (artist name VOOV) he published records & CDs, created sountracks for movies, theatre & radio, music clips. He founded ‘Club Automatique’, formed the independent production company HUMATIC. Universities & Institutes such as ZKM have invited him for lectures & residencies. The latest production MNM (2013) received an honorary mention at Prix Ars Electronica. His recent sculptural / media work explores the practices and myths around pop and contemporary music, combining multiscreen videos and multichannel sound with partly machine- partly user-controlled ‘humatic’ interfaces and mechanisms. With the media slotmachine MindBox he and his team received a Guthman’s New Musical Instruments Award in Atlanta Georgia. MIEKO SUZUKI having come from a pianist background and studied fashion, has been organizing events and performing as a DJ and sound artist worldwide since 1998. Mieko has won awards and taken part in artist residency programs whilst also performing as a musician and DJ at clubs and international art and fashion events. Selected event include Calvin Klein Tokyo Collection 2008, Female:pressure Japan Tour 2009, MOMENTUM Sydney 2010, Kunsthalle M3 Berlin 2010, Japan Media Arts Festival 2010, REH Kunst Berlin 2012, GALLERY WEEKEND Berlin 2012, JULIUS Paris Collection 2011-2014, Cynetart Dresden, Craft Gallery Melbourne 2013, Patric Mohr fashion show Berlin 2014, Marrakech Biennale5 2014. She has also collaborated on sculpture, visual, sound and multi-media installations with artists. While MING POON comes from a dance background, he prefers to describe himself as a movement performer. He readily experiments and combines elements from an eclectic mix of techniques and disciplines. He sees the body as a predilection of viewing as an object, by stripping it to its physical and affective functionality and mechanics. His idea of dance is one in which there are no ‘dancers’ on stage, only bodies that are in the process of forming, transforming and disintegrating. He has worked with international dance companies in Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands and Singapore. His choreographic works include: ‘The man who looks for signs’, ‘A piece of heaven’, ‘Ghosts’, ‘Back’, ‘Topography of Pleasure and Pain’ (dance film). ‘Gravity’, ‘(un)it: HD85828|in.ViSiBLE’ and ‘The Infinitesimal Distance Between Two Bodies’.

                Auguste Garufi is an immense artist , a genuine and true person, a poet whose immeasurable integrity and fortitude are pure reflection of his freedom of language and spirit. When i entered his studio 3 years ago, I immediately sensed it would be a life changing encounter. And I fell in love with his work. As a gift to the earth As an act of faith As a poem Today i'm happy to share a film about his work with paper pulp petals and paper sewing.

                      For Month of Performance Art, MOMENTUM curates a month-long program of Performance Sundays entitled WORKS ON PAPER. This exhibition series inverts usual assumptions, inviting performance artists to use paper both as form and as content; not as a blank slate upon which to create, but as a dynamic building block with which to create. Bringing together a diverse group of international artists based in Berlin, MOMENTUM invites them to work on paper and with paper to activate all the possibilities of the medium in unexpected ways. Working through durational performance, instruction pieces, physical and social architecture, live performance in dialogue with video performance, and a diversity of individual practices, WORKS ON PAPER invokes the breadth of performance art to reimagine paper: this most traditional of artistic media. The underlying theme common to my works is the conflict or dialogue with myself and my interactions with the world. What should I hide about myself? What should I show? What should I reveal? There are questions, there is inquiry – and all of this goes on within the context and with the understanding that I’m sharing the space and creating an experience with other people who are busy with the same thing. The two works I have presented here feature performance, sculpture, and body in an intertwined relationship. Body is a part of the sculpture, and an inseparable piece of it. The performance is putting into question the presence of the body, and the experience is relating to the artist as a person or as a part of the object in that moment. As the designer of these frameworks for experience and an integral performer of them, I experience the performed sculptures as an extension of my body, and as a frame for my body that defines borders, declares division, and offers points of access and inaccessibility. In these works, I create a specific structure for the situation or interaction, which I assume has clear guidelines. However in reality, each person present, individuals loaded with imagination, cultural conditioning, social inhibitions, influence of their peers, will perceive, interpret and act differently in the given situation, and that’s when things get interesting.
