Control Order House. Edmund Clark. Here Press.

Posted in architecture, photography, writing on April 30th, 2013

Control Order House. Edmund Clark. Here Press.

Edmund Clark is the first artist to work and stay in a house in which a man suspected of involvement with terrorist-related activity was placed under a Control Order in the UK.
‘Control Order House’ explores this form of detention through photographs and architectural representations of the house, and the handwritten diary of the man known only as CE. The book includes redacted documents relating to CE’s case. Clark’s implication in the process is further revealed through his correspondence from the Home Office, which makes clear the control and censorship imposed on his work inside the house. Any material could become part of CE’s case.
Clark says: ‘This archetypal semi-detached house in a faceless suburb is the physical manifestation of a form of detention without trial in the UK. It represents the reaction of a government and society to the fear and chaos of terrorist attacks.’
‘Control Order House’ engages with ideas of control in photography by foregoing the normal process of editing and mediation to reproduce the images, unedited, in the order in which Clark took them, exploring the monotony and claustrophobia of a controlled person’s life. The inclusion of official documents and correspondence also illustrates the weight of state actors against the individual.

About Control Orders
Control Orders were introduced under the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005. Between 2005 and 2011, 52 men suspected of involvement in terrorism were under Control Orders and subject to various constraints. These included the power to relocate them to a house anywhere in the country, to restrict communication electronically and in person, and to impose a curfew. ‘Controlled persons’ were not prosecuted for terrorist-related activity and the evidence against them remained secret. One man was subject to these controls for more than four years. Control Orders were replaced by Terrorist Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIMs) in 2012. Nine men are currently subject to a TPIM.

Also a member of noise band Y.E.R.M.O. he has performed in venues and festivals such as Issue Project Room (New York), MUDAM and Philharmonie du Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Young Arts Biennial (Moscow), EPAF (Warsaw), Instants Chavirés (Paris), Ausland and Electronic Church (Berlin) among many others.

Devonian Press / Capacete / Panaview @ Motto Berlin. 27.04.2013

Posted in events on April 23rd, 2013

Devonian Press invites Capecete Entretenimentos and Panaview @ Motto Berlin. 27.04.2013
from 5pm

Devonian Press:

Devonian Press is an independent press founded by Julien Bismuth and Jean-Pascal Flavien in 2005, in Rio de Janeiro. Since then, they have published 21 books and 20 posters. Some of their publications are linked to collaborative projects, such as “The Announcement” or “Plouf!”. In September 2006, Flavien and Bismuth collaborated with the musician and composer Giancarlo Vulcano, on a performance titled “The Announcement.” In August of that same year, Bismuth and Flavien did a performance with two boatsoff the coast of Rio de Janeiro. One boat, carrying the audience, encountered another boat, carrying Bismuth and Flavien. Upon meeting, the two artists communicated a text to the audience, consisting a written text, as well as its translation or illustration by a series of coded signals, from semaphore signals to Morse code and signal flag commands. The performance is described and documented in the related book, and was recreated on the Thames, for the Tate Modern, in 2009.
Posters were also designed and produced by Devonian Press for both performances.
Other publications are linked to individual projects. “Forgotten Time and Moments” and “Viewer,”
for example, described an architectural work, also titled “Viewer, which was built by Flavien near Rio de Janeiro in 2007. This building was both featured in the books and used as an office for the publishing house.
“no drama house”, and later “book furniture”, are linked to another architectural project of the same name, built in the exterior courtyard of the Giti Nourbakhsch Gallery in Berlin. “Monologues for Minerals” is both a collection of short stories by Bismuth, as well as the libretto for a 16-episode long audio work done in collaboration with Giancarlo Vulcano. “The error in the landscape” was produced to accompany an exhibition of the same name at Bloomberg Space, in 2010. Other titles, such as “A Hold!” or “Starts and Stops” are autonomous works.
In 2013, “dialogues” and “re- two persons house” were published in the wake of the “two persons house” built in São Paulo in 2010. Another book is compiling the contributions of all the people invited to live in the breathing house since 2012. “Landscape house” puts together the architectural models of a house that Flavien was planning to built when he first came to Rio de Janeiro in 2002.

Capacete Entretenimentos:

At the occasion of this exhibition, Flavien is presenting the complete printed matters of Capacete Entretenimentos.
Capacete is an non-profit institution initiated by Helmut Batista in Rio de Janeiro in 1998. This is with the help of Capacete that Devonian Press could be imagined and started. Capacete was crucial in supporting and providing an occasion for Flavien’s “viewer” (2007) and “two persons house”(2010) to be built in Rio and Saõ Paulo. Helmut Batista participated actively to the experimentation of each of these projects.
Capacete published numerous books, magazine, etc, accompanying its various activities which include artist residencies, summer school, exhibitions, production of projects, etc. Many times artist were asked to create a specific design for the publication. Capacete also supported artist publications, or promoted books it own book series: livro para… (book to …) ; livro para ler (book to read), livro para morar (book to dwell), livro para responder (book to answer), …

Between 1998 e 2013 CAPACETE worked with: Andrea Fraser, Pierre Huyghes, Arto Lindsay, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Chelpa Ferro, Joaquim Koester, Julia Rometti e Victor Costales, Harum Farocki, Nobuyushi Araki, Sharen Lockart, Marepe, Rodney Graham, Eija-Liisa Athila, Falke Pisano, Max Hinderer, Mariana Castillo-Deball, Fernanda Gomes, Leonor Antunes, Gabriel Lester, Raimundas Malasauskas, Runo Lagomarsino, Adriana Lara, Jean-Pascal Flavien, Julien Bismuth, Raymond Chaves y Gilda Mantilla, Elfi Turpin, Louidgi Beltrame, Bik van der Pol, Renata Lucas, Tamar Guimarães, Kasper Akoj, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Christoph Keller, Manon de Boer, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Hans Christian Dany…

Panaview:
