LIMBUS

Everybody knows the LIMBUS dance: Only those who bend the most can get to the other side. LIMBUS is the edge, the gap. It’s a foyer, a waiting room, a Beckett- loop. LIMBUS trabants Art Basel and explores institutional gaps, for example a timeslot in…

Basel Blörb #4 by Karim Crippa

Shlepping around a severe hangover, I spent yesterday in an odd limbo, not quite sure about what to do. I first went back to Art Basel to check out things I had missed and talk with the ladies from Luxembourg & Dayan, whose attitude was…

Basel Blörb #3 by Karim Crippa

This week’s most relevant event took place yesterday: the First Choice VIP Preview of Art Basel. To be clear: I myself am neither first choice, nor a VIP, but Exhibitionary co-founder Jan Winkelmann is, and since he’s also a friendly guy, he ushered me in…

Basel Blörb #2 by Karim Crippa

“The game is on” I thought as I was shoved down the stairs of Liste, sweating through my sportswear. Art Basel’s satellite fair was the first thing I saw upon arriving; unusually high temperatures and large crowds made navigating the twisted building in which it…

Basel Blörb #1 by Karim Crippa

Every year in June, an avalanche of carefully curated instagram posts informing you of a booth number, an artist list or an unmissable talk moderated by someone who writes for artforum marks the inevitable return of the art world’s pendant to the Davos Economic Forum:…

Olaf Metzel „Plattenbau“ – Rückblick von Laura Helena Wurth

Wie zufällige Ansammlungen von Metallschrott befinden sich Metzel’s dreidimensionale Arbeiten, auf den ersten Blick, in der Galerie Wentrup. Sie wirken scharfkantig, bruchstückhaft. Metzel zwingt, durch die Deformierung seiner Gebilde, von ausgetrampelten Pfaden abzuweichen und neue Wege der Betrachtung und Einordnung zu gehen. Seine sehr präzisen…

Tiril Hasselknippe ‚Queens of the Tear Duct‘

It’s been seven days now, a group of three women trudged along empty, deserted highways, a scene suggesting they are the lone survivors of beloved planet earth and the protagonists of this awkward scenario. They were cold and hungry yet in the face of their…

Nemo Nonnenmacher – „Prototypen“

Als Prototyp versteht man traditionellerweise eine Vorab-Version. Ein technisches Modell, welches zwar voll funktionsfähig ist, aber dennoch in vereinfachter Form ausgeführt wurde. Es simuliert die Realität des wirklichen Gegenstandes. An ihm werden ästhetische Vorstellungen materialisiert und Funktionsweisen erprobt und geprüft. Prototypen lautet auch der Titel…

ALEX HEILBRON – SCENT DESCRIPTION for a young woman

Pressing downwards, a puff of perfume, pumps out a wavy line. Cartoon stink lines, but detoxifying, radiating upward, always towards the light, entering the world, or ending it. Nova (time passes)… Supernova… Supranova… Personal, inter, intrapersonal with a sender, receiver, and a feedback loop. A…

PAUL ROSERO CONTRERAS – SIERRA NEGRA

The fall of dropping water wears away the stone. Sticky aggregations of black lints suffuse the surface of the rocks. Their tactility is intriguing, withdrawing from the glance into its materiality. The sculptures function as a juxtaposition, diagonally cutting the space, altering it into a…

A New Prescription For Insomnia

A New Prescription For Insomnia is built on the contemporary concepts of survivalism and escapism. GeoVanna Gonzalez’s latest curatorial project at HORSEANDPONY Fine Arts, Berlin interrogates how these ideas relate to current political issues including labor, desire and technology.

Justin Morin – LAST RESORT

Economical issues. Political issues. Sentimental issues. Ecological issues. How do you manage to find a way into this maze of choices and repercussions? Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), also known as by the trade name Plexiglas was developed in 1928 in several different laboratories by many chemists.…

Groupshow Weird Rain @ Garden, LA

Weird Rain brings together five artists exploring speculative modes of ecological coexistence. Each artist is acutely self-aware of their relationship with the built concept of Nature as other, and their work challenges, complicates, and blurs this binary.

Meanwhile in Vienna – Martin Chramosta

The reliefs of Martin Chramosta are made of plaster or wax. They wear french titles. They are closed, limited, autonomous works. They are gestural compositions of small and medium format. Drawing and sculpture cross in the rigidity of their moving features, in the volume of…

Etwas, das wahrscheinlich jeder kennt, aber niemand zugeben möchte. Scrollend und…

Seven Thousand Ripped Lollies – Sophia Domagala

“It is pretty general to say: My work is about life. But there is no better answer.” Altes und Neues! Kultur und Roheit! Bosheit und Leidenschaft! Egoismus im Schafpelz, Egoismus in der Wolshaut! Aberglauben und Unglauben! Knechtschaft und Despotism! Unvernünftige Klugheit, unkluge Vernunft! Geistlose Empfindung,…
