“I don’t remember, but since I was very young, drawing is one habit of mine. After many changes and attempts, I worked on the same type of drawing for about six or seven years. I made a book out of some of the drawings I worked on. Of course, personal things will also be reflected but there is no topic and answer. I just do the act of drawing habitually. It can be personal or universal. It looks like a familiar person or a familiar character shape, or it is not. You can also watch fairy tales and cartoons. Or it may seem like an extreme reality. Or lines and lumps. Or just paper and graphite. It seems to be full, or it is empty, repetition and flow, or there is a difference and disconnection. And it was planned or happened to happen to be. It is constantly familiar and unfamiliar between everything and something. The size, paper and texture of the book are also parts of this context.”

GOOD LIFE. Meike Männel.

Posted in Artist Book, photography on February 23rd, 2022
Tags: , , , , ,

Good Life was awarded with the German Photo Book Prize 21/22 in silver. 
Good Life is a hybrid of a photobook and an artist catalog that summarizes the work from 2017 to 2021 by artist Meike Mann& (b. 1991 in Nuremberg, Germany). It’s the first book Mannel published after her graduation from Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, Germany and goes hand in hand with her exhibition at Kunsthaus Nurnberg in Nuremberg. in order to realize this project, she applied for a debutant promotion. 
Meike Marine’ works mainly on different ongoing series, a selection of which is presented in the first part of the artistbook. After a paper change beginning halfway, there are two texts about Manners work by art historian Dr. Teresa Bischoff (former professor of Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg) and writer Anna Hofmann (masters study at Deutsches Literaturinstitut Leipzig). In the back of the book, her more experimental photo silkscreens and photo installations are shown. 
Marine seeks to preserve the ephemeral with this project. The shown motifs deal with the longing for distance, the uncertainty and the question of survival. In loud and softer colors it presents a world that often lies unnoticed in front of us and whose aesthetics one takes for granted, without recognizing what is special about it.

Rehabilitation of Ancestors. Yoshinori Niwa.

Posted in Artist Book on February 22nd, 2022
Tags: , , , , ,

Rehabilitation of Ancestors is an artist’s book based on the media research of Vienna-based artist Yoshinori Niwa. In recent years, Niwa has tried to diversify his approach by using different media forms, from direct interventions in the space, such as performances and happenings, to public campaigns using traditional media. For example, in the work “Dragging Adolf Hitler out of Private Space” (2018), he dared to place an advertisement in a daily newspaper, which is now considered as an old media, and planned to contact the elderly generation in order to get to know their ancestors who lived during the Nazi regime, which casts a dark shadow over Austria. Web works such as “Having a Birthday Party for Someone” (2019), a week-long random viewing of more than 600 videos of private birthday parties uploaded to YouTube but left unseen by most people, are an example of how people socialise in the age of social media. (2019), which was inspired by the way people socialize in the age of social media. In this age of high performance visual media, which are now easily accessible to everyone, the artist is determined to grasp a new image of humanity and to move society forward in the face of these changing roles.

Planning: Yoshinori Niwa
Editing: Mika Maruyama
Text by: Beatrice Forchini, Curatorial Assistant, Thyssen-Bornemisza Foundation for Contemporary Art (TBA21), Jeremy Epstein, Gallerist, Eder Asanti, Takahiro Okuwaki, Curator, Aomori Museum of Art, Sebastian Cichocki, Chief Curator, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw Chief Curator, Museum of Modern Art), Ana Maria Montenegro Jaramio) (Artist, Curator of the 45th Salon Nacional de Artistas)

Catalogue. Amie Siegel. Inventory Press.

Catalogue suggests an artist’s exhibition catalogue, but is rather a chronological compilation of auction catalogues presenting the sales of the mid-century furniture designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret for Chandigarh, India, featured in Amie Siegel’s multi-element film installation Provenance (2013). An aside, an addendum, an index, the publication ends with the Christie’s London catalogue page from the 2013 auction of Provenance itself in the Post-War and Contemporary Art Sale, which completes the economic circuit of the project.

American artist Amie Siegel’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York MoMA/PS1, NY; Hayward Gallery, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Walker Art Center, MN; CCA Wattis, San Francisco; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; Kunst-Werke, Berlin, Cannes Film Festival and Berlin Film festival among many others. She has been a fellow of the DAAD Berliner-Künstlerprogramm, Guggenheim Foundation, and the recipient of a Sundance Institute Film Fund award.
