Sculpture becomes itself Architecture

PER KIRKEBY

June 26th to October 18th 2009

Curated by Marga Paz

Organizes: CDAN
Open 26th, june, 20 pm. CDAN

Sculpture is normally understood as a solid volume closed in on itself. Sculpture has traditionally been carved by taking away fragments of material, or been modelled by adding material, until a figure emerges or is formed. On the other hand, architecture defines habitable spaces by means of construction, in such a way that both the antagonistic qualities of impenetrability or habitability as well as the techniques used by both arts have always seemed to allow for an easy differentiation, even though many great sculptors have also been architects.

Per Kirkeby’s works not only push back the limits of sculptural techniques towards construction, appropriating brick, the core charismatic material of architectural creations, but they also allow the spectator to enter into their defunctionalised interiors. These works neither celebrate nor commemorate events but instead signpost a place and call attention to the surroundings in which they are located.

This work created specifically for Plan is based on the intersection of two equal squares whose intersection creates another smaller square inside, in such a way that, with this simple play of geometry, three spaces are created which can be entered through a series of openings mimicking the doors of a house. In this regard, and though it lacks any functional potential, we could draw a parallel between the openings in the upper part and the idea of windows, even though it is impossible to look through them. One should not seek for the meaning of the work in architecture, its styles and construction techniques. This sculpture’s relationship with architecture is purely incidental, and its meaning must be sought in the postmodern development of abstract forms that have stepped beyond the limits of the arts and the premises of the avant-gardes in order to reinforce the autonomy of a work of art with respect to other objects in the world. Nonetheless, this work is already inseparab le from the place, and through its openings we discover fragments of Peña Mediodía, Peña Lisa, Peña Cuezo, Punta Llerga and the sky in the Pyrenees, further enhancing its singularity.

“Kirkeby’s work is the seventh project in the Art & Nature collection-route already including works by major international artists like Richard Long, Ulrich Rückriem, Siah Armajani, Fernando Casás, David Nash and Alberto Carneiro.”

Cádiz has a Second Wind

logo_a







James Turrell iniciou a sua carreira artística no estado da Califórnia, em princípios dos anos 60, e cedo se tornou líder de uma novo corpo de artistas que trabalhavam a luz como matéria no espaço. A sua trajectória foi reconhecida com exposições em museus como o Guggenheim, o Museu de Arte Americana Whitney de Nova Iorque, Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Los Angeles ou a Colecção Panza di Biumo em Carese, Itália. O trabalho de James Turrell desprende-se com preocupações como as de criação de um objecto. Não se ocupa com imagens para se libertar do pensamento simbólico associativo, não se preocupando tão pouco com algum objectivo ou ponto de vista e com as suas obras ele atropela o nosso pensamento como uma questão; para o que é que afinal estás a olhar? Actualmente reside em Flagstaff (Arizona) com o único objectivo de supervisionar as obras de “Roden Crater”; um volcão extinto que está a ser transformado num observatório celestial e que estará disponível às visitas públicas, sensivelmente em meados de 2011.





Na Fundação Montenmedio Arte Contemporâneo em Cádiz, James Turrell mostra aquela que é senão a maior obra do artista na Europa. “Second Wind” é o título da obra que está patente ao público permanentemente no jardim de exposições da Fundação NMAC. Esta obra levou três anos a ser construída com um grau de complexidade arquitectónico elevado. Pertence à série de trabalhos “Sky Spaces”, e surge com raiz nos estudos realizados ao logo de três décadas em Roden Crater. Second Wind trata-se de ser uma obra subterrânea que se torna quase imperceptível no seu exterior confundindo-se com a natureza do jardim que a circunda. O acesso é feito através de um túnel para dentro de uma pirâmide onde são enaltecidos os elementos da terra, água e ar. Dentro desta mesma pirâmide, descobre-se uma imponente cúpula de pedra que se faz rodear por àgua. A cúpula arredondada que se apresenta numa espécie de arquitectura budista da qual, através da sua forma e posição, é produzido um efeito de projecção do observador para o cosmos. O acesso apresenta-nos um quarto que se abre para a luz do céu, onde o observador pode contemplar as mudanças de luz e a ambivalência respectivamente aos limites da percepção. Tanto neste como na maioria dos seus projectos, James Turrell mostra que a luz não só tem textura como também adquire substância e materializa-se posicionalmente.

Second Wind torna-se especialmente interessante ao pôr do sol, convertendo-se numa experiência única que aproxima o observador a um infindável espectro de cores e que dá a sensação que o céu está ao alcance da sua mão.

Brazil goes Dutch!!!

ROTTERDAM SHOW
BRAZIL CONTEMPORARY

Three Rotterdam museums –
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen,
the Netherlands Architecture Institute,
the Netherlands Photo Museum
– are bringing the rich culture of Brazil
to the city on the Maas.


Ernesto NetoErnesto Neto, collection: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen



Brazil is inspiring, astounding, amazing. It is one of the largest countries in the world, with vast cities of millions of inhabitants that defy the imagination. Brazil is also developing at breakneck speed and is one of the economic giants of the future. But Brazil has its downside too: the depletion of the rainforest, the enormous contrast between rich and poor, the favelas. These phenomena are culturally reflected in an exciting cocktail of high and low art, of street art and politically committed art, and of different art disciplines and traditional craftsmanship. Brazilian culture will go to your head.

After the success of China Contemporary (2006), the three museums have decided to join forces again to focus on a country that has emerged as a global player in economic, social and cultural terms within a short period. Brazil Contemporary presents a broad panorama of Brazilian culture and introduces the public to young Brazilian artists, architects and designers.



MUSEUM BOIJMANS VAN BEUNINGEN presents a dazzling survey of the contemporary art of Brazil. The work of Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) occupies pride of place. Oiticica considered that Brazil should not just passively undergo and imitate Western influences, but that artists should transmute these influences into a uniquely Brazilian culture. The exhibition shows to what extent today’s artists are still under the influence of Oiticica, with works by Ernesto Neto, Rivane Neuenschwander, Cao Guimaraes and Ricardo Bassbaum. 30 MAY to 23 AUGUST

THE NETHERLANDS ARCHITECTURE INSTITUTE introduces the public to one of the biggest cities in the world: São Paulo. With its melting pot of cultures and identities, São Paulo is the reflection of contemporary Brazil. The exhibition introduces visitors to the mind-boggling size, the social structures and the cohesive forces of this metropolis. There are three intertwining narrative threads. First is the story of a vast city with millions of inhabitants. Then there is the story about life in the city – neighbourhoods, communities and well-known architecture projects by Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, Paulo Mendes da Rocha and others. And finally there is the story of the Paulistanos, the residents of São Paulo, and their dreams for the city. 30 MAY to 23 AUGUST
