One Helluva Hole Lecture by Jérémie Gindre  @ Motto Berlin

The novella “One Helluva Hole” by Jérémie Gindre is one of the outcomes of a residency that artist Jérémie Gindre undertook in 2011, at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences, University of Geneva, where he studied the effects of brain damage in Neuroscience. Focusing on the emotional side of experiences and how this affects human behaviour and society, this short fictional writing describes the vicissitudes of Bill Ronson, whose life changed dramatically after a terrible accident that perforated his brain

It is this inexplicable mix of feelings, together with the occasion of an extra day – extra chance – in the year, that gave motion to the exhibition, where different artists present works somehow connected with the idea of emotions, experiences, sensitivity and personal perceptions.

Monday February 29th

from 7:00pm

Motto is pleased to present a pop-up bookstore at Wendy’s Subway, a non-profit library and workspace located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The store will be open Feb 19-28, 12-7 p.m., with a talk by Where’s Lucy Hunter & R. Lyon / Artwork by Kayla Guthrie at 7 p.m. on Sunday 21.02.16. This pop-up is the first in a series of curated libraries, shops, and collections displayed in the storefront of Wendy’s Subway’s new Bushwick location.

Where is a think tank and publishing platform headquartered in a shipping container in Brooklyn, NY. It is co-produced by historian Lucy Hunter and artist R.Lyon, who use the think tank as an opportunity to research information theory through experiments with the exhibition format. They publish their findings in book-length on-demand publications. For their talk at Wendy’s Subway, Hunter and Lyon will discuss, among other things: libraries, completeness, empire, and the past. Refreshments will be on hand to lighten the load. The talk will begin promptly at 8pm.

Kayla Guthrie will display a page from her most recent artist book, Sunsets Working (in collaboration with Nathan Antolik, calligraphy, and published by Bodega, New York) in the window. Kayla Guthrie is an artist working in writing, sound, and visual mediums. Her EP Blue was released in 2015 by Mixed Media Recordings. She has performed at Greene Naftali, Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Massimo de Carlo (London), and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is the curator of Intra Phenom, a New York-based performance series presenting the work of female artists in live and durational genres.

Salesse. Nouveau Monde. Michaël Houlette. Daniel Coutelier (eds.)

French photographer Henri Salesse observed through his lens a radically changing France in the second half of the 20th century. Although creating this unique work as a civil servant photographer of the Ministry of Reconstruction and Urbanism, Salesse’s medium-format photographs reveal that he went beyond his mere task of providing a “technical verification”. Salesse grasped the deep transformation of his contemporary France.

In 80 images and a concise introduction by Michaël Houlette and Daniel Coutelier, the exhibition catalogue Nouveau Monde allows a unique insight into the socio-economic context and the state of reconstruction in France from the post-war years until the 1970s.
