Disarm at TodaysArt, The Hague

26 Sep

23-25 September 2016

Disarm (mechanized) by Pedro Reyes in Pulchiri, The Hague.

Disarm (mechanized) by Pedro Reyes in Pulchiri, The Hague.

“Disarm (mechanized)” by Pedro Reys are a collection of mechanical musical instruments made in part out of firearms, including revolvers, shot-guns and machine-guns, given to him by the Mexican government in the city of Ciudad, Juarez, after they had been rendered useless by tanks and steamrollers. In hearing of his work “Palas Por Pistolas,” where he transformed 1,527 guns owned by the residents of Culiacán by melting these down into 1,527 shovels, which were then used to plant 1,527 trees around the world, he was offered 6,700 destroyed weapons from the Mexican Secretary of Defence in 2012. “Disarm (Mechanized),” his second work made from these firearms, can either be automated or played live by an operator using a laptop computer or midi keyboard. This 3.55 min video clip is a piece run from a laptop titled “Turner 2015” in the Pulchri gallery in the Hague.

“For Pedro Reyes the process of transforming weapons into objects of positive utility was more than physical. “It’s important to consider that many lives were taken with these weapons; as if a sort of exorcism was taking place, the music expelled the demons they held, as well as being a requiem for the lives lost.” Artlyst.com, 25 Sept, 2015

“Pedro Reyes’ work is a socio-political critique on contemporary society and our responsibility towards it. His projects are catalysts for communal and psychological transformation, triggering group interaction and creativity.

Disarm is a demand for towns and cities across the world to relinquish their weapons and transform them from agents of death to agents of life. It is an attempt to highlight the invisible violence that underpins the international industry of death and suffering: the commercial and government complicity that allows for weapons to be made and sold by public companies for shareholder profit; the laws banning assault rifles which go neglected; and the films and video-games which depict trigger-happy heroes. For Reyes, an idealist whose projects affect real change and are often explicit attempts to improve the society around him, a world free of guns is a human right, and a utopian ideal to which we should all aspire.” Lisson Gallery, 2013, London.

Pedro Reyes was born in Mexico City in 1972, where he lives and works. He has won international attention for his large-scale projects that associate social issues with imaginative solutions. Pedro Reyes was awarded a Medal for the Arts in January 2015, by the US State Department for his continued commitment to the State Department’s cultural diplomacy outreach.

Spirit, people power, nature power – Wairua, Mana Tangata, Mana Whenua

31 May

10 April – 1 June 2015 0420_2000jess-se-lisaTop Left to Right: Detail of Wairua 2, oil paint/mixed media on canvas, by Keri Molly; Homage, oil on canvas, by Lynn Pirrie Smith; Pou Wairua woven flax + copper panel by Jess Paraone; Several Seas, photographic print on transparency by Sen McGlinn; Long Boat, mild steel by Peter Brammer; Puddle, Pigment print on cotton rag by Lisa Clunie; I want to be reborn, acrylic & oil stick on canvas by Simon Kerr; Prana, Pigment print on cotton rag by Lisa Clunie.

Whenua refers to the link between us and life or the life spirit, which sometimes refers to the land or the natural world. Curated by Piripi Ball + Laurell Pratt this exhibition theme of the spirit as the power of humanity and the power of the natural is expressed in sculpture, carving, weaving, paintings, photographic, installations and craft and design. Piripi’s remit for this show was to encourage artists to approach this theme from the materiality as much as from an abstracted stance and he was successful in getting work from a huge diversity of artistic approaches.

Framing “Film + Kunst” in the old post office, Leiden

13 Jun

Site-specific installation by Robbert Pauwels.

Detail in the “Film + Kunst” exhibition with work by Inge Reisberman, Adrian Faes, and Katharina Pohlmann.

The exhibition “Film + Kunst” curated by Sonja van Kerkhoff plays with the idea of a frame or medium. It includes films made by artists, and art in response to a selection of films from the Leiden International Short Film Experience.

Eleven artists were invited to make site-specific installations in the old post office building. Catharina van Velden’s room of drawings, objects and video is a gesamtkunstwerk – you walk into the frame, while in the post office safe, Inge Reisbermann’s projection of a nocturnal cat patrolling its territory references the edges of the frame. In Astrid Moors’ room your touch on the interactive screen affects the framework around the protagonists inside the frame. And Klaas Bolhuis’ room changes the framework of the art gallery. His contribution is a functioning art library. You can rent the artworks he has on display, while Suzanne van Rossenberg’s series “A Room with a Lesbian view” is about the intangible. Her work is a conceptual process that unfolds along the walls.

POST theatre on May 31st by Erik Oijerhoek + Gideon Roggeveen in the garage area of the gallery.

Meanwhile in the back of the gallery, there is a constantly changing theatre and recording of the theatrical in the form of live takes, live interviews, video and installation by the duo, Roggeveen/Olijerhoek.

Bed Peace 2013 by Carmen McGlinn + Sonja van Kerkhoff. Performers: Carmen McGlinn + Toroa McGlinn, 31 May.

On entering the show you encounter an empty bed and a collection of televisions.
Some show videos, some show static, some might not be functioning, and words have been painted onto some of the screens. A notice informs you that the televisions are in a constant state of flux and on your next visit there will be differing films on show and other televisions at work. This work “Bed Peace 2013” by Carmen McGlinn sets the tone for an exhibition which is as much about what is outside of the frame as inside. The show which includes works by 25 artists also features live theatre and performances by Roggeveen/Olijerhoek , Fields of Wonder, and De Natte Wang/Kuiper en Berbee.

Artists:
Inge Reisberman, Fields of Wonder,Yoke Ferwerda, Daniëlle Celie, Barthel Brussee, Wendy van Baar, Robbert Pauwels, Christiaan van Tol, Katharina Pöhlmann, Suzanne van Rossenberg, Carmen McGlinn + Sonja van Kerkhoff, Erik Flikkensch​ild, Gideon, Roggeveen|Olijerhoek, Erik, Catharina van Velden, Coen van der Geest, De Natte Wang/Kuiper en Berbee, Iris Mechielsen, Christie Greeve, Loes van Dorp, Theolieke Smit, Emilie Gallier, Michel Siebes, Astrid Moors, Adrian Faes, Henk Hannemann.
