PIERRE BISMUTH
Liquids and Gels


Artists in this exhibition: PIERRE BISMUTH


PIERRE BISMUTH
Liquids and Gels

Duration: 17. 05. - 22. 06. 2013

The exhibition Liquids and Gels explores the norms regulating cultural artifacts. The photographs of desert landscapes, each marked with the logo of ownership of the image, should be understood as a contribution to the copyright/copyleft debate: obliterated by the presence of the intrusive copyright logo that should make them unusable, theses pictures nonetheless attain a secondary value as artworks. The strategies developed to protect ownership are here used precisely to open up possibilities for free access. Pierre Bismuth savors the fact that in the digital context of unrestricted production and access to images the notion of property has become a paradox.

Pierre Bismuth employs artistic practice as a tool for examining our perception of reality as well as our relation to culture and its productions. The underlying aim of his works is always the same - to destabilize pre-established codes of perception and to push the viewer to become critical and incredulous even when presented with cultural objects whose meaning appears self-evident.


PIERRE BISMUTH, born in Paris in 1963, lives and works in Brussels. 2005 he was awarded the Oscar in the category “Best Original Screenplay” with Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman for the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

WINDOW 24
SKIP ARNOLD

Duration: 17. 05. - 22. 06. 2013

Skip Arnold works within the tradition of Body Art and Actionism. In his performances, the artist seeks out extremes, testing the limits of physical endurance. Arnold isolates and alienates everyday and functionalised series of movement and behaviour mechanisms. In his works one can find a crossing of borders, as in the work of Chris Burden, or a certain masochism, as in the case of Bob Flanagan, aggressive and disturbing aspects, as with Bruce Nauman, as well as the exhibitionism to be found in the work of Carolee Schneeman.
Window 24 presents two videos by the artist.

SKIP ARNOLD, born in Binghamton, New York, in 1957, lives and works in Los Angeles and Paris.
