    uninterrupted quiet physical and mental state visitors will be required to leave their cellphones watches bags etc in a locker before entering the gallery Assisted by facilitators who were trained by performance artist and Abramović collaborator Lynsey Peisinger visitors will don noise canceling headphones and blindfolds A maximum of sixty eight people will be allowed in at a time Abramovic will create what she has previously described as full emptiness a term derived from Tibetan teachings of oneness Dealing with both the meditative and the communal Generator will be a unique environment for visitors to push the boundaries of their self awareness and inner consciousness as they are confronted with nothing but themselves and the palpable energy in the room In recent years Abramovic s work with the public has become increasingly immaterial She has shifted the focus of her work from her own performances to the audience and their particular experience This is especially true of Generator which builds on 512 Hours her recent ten week exhibition at The Serpentine Gallery in London and The Artist is Present her three and a half month long performance and exhibition at MoMA As with these previous two exhibitions visitors are no longer mere spectators but an active and indeed crucial element of the exhibition As the title suggests Generator is about creation namely the production of energy and its transmission As Thomas McEvilley explained in the catalogue for The House with the Ocean View Abramovic wanted to do a performance free of any artworks objects props or scenarios that could get between her and her viewer Instead the viewers would be invited to enter into an energy relationship More than a decade later in an even more radical form this is precisely what Abramovic intends to achieve in Generator Abramovic has

    as well as his interest in architecture minimalism and conceptual art In the front gallery Dávila will present Look Mickey a monumental sculpture made specifically for the space comprised of three marble slabs counterbalanced with industrial ratchet straps Look Mickey is entirely freestanding the marble slabs are held in place by gravity and their own equilibrium Their balance however is accompanied by tension as the sculpture appears on the verge of collapse As the title of the exhibition suggests Dávila imbues his works with a remarkably light presence emphasizing their diametrically opposed qualities Dávila further accentuates this tension in Joint effort which is made of glass and demonstrates how this material can be at once both extremely fragile and strong A similar juxtaposition is emphasized in Dávila s new cutout photographic works Dávila removes visual information from familiar images to generate new meaning rather than expressing weight and presence they now exemplify weightlessness and absence Dávila s work is in the permanent collection of numerous institutions including the Museo Univer sitario Arte Contemporáneo MUAC Mexico City Mexico Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Madrid Spain Inhotim Brumadinho Brazil Albright Knox Museum Buffalo New York the Zabludowicz Collection London Great

  • Sean Kelly Gallery - Laurent Grasso - Press Release
    themes addressed in Soleil Double are not just about the proposed phenomena of two suns in axis around the earth but on a more symbolic level about the concepts of duplicity and ubiquity the idea that reality could be something other than what it appears to be at first glance than what we take for granted as true and right These shifting perceptions of reality and the investigation of the territory between what is known and unknown are subjects common throughout Grasso s oeuvre In addition to Soleil Double which will be shown in the lower level gallery a focal point of the installation in the main gallery will be a large scale projection of Grasso s film Uraniborg which examines the scientist Tycho Brahe s discoveries in astronomy in the 16th century and specifically the astronomical observatory that Brahe built in 1576 on the island of Ven in Sweden The development of astronomical science at this time signified a capacity to understand and represent the universe For Grasso the focus in the film as in much of his work is about how the study of astronomy was linked to the idea of power in the 16th and 17th centuries This narrative is further explored through the paintings and photographs included in the exhibition such as the silver bromide prints from Grasso s Specola Vaticana series These works depict historical photographs of the pope looking through a telescope an instrument that symbolizes observation and knowledge and through them control installed in the Vatican observatory originally established by the Holy See in the late 1700s Grasso will present the Sean Kelly exhibition with a simultaneous iteration of the Soleil Double exhibition at Galerie Perrotin Paris from September 6 to October 31 2014 Grasso was awarded the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2008

  • Sean Kelly Gallery - Isabel Nolan - Press Release
    refuse to be fully instrumentalised or to ever be wholly in control of their own meaning or ends I thought I was making a show that considered disintegration and failure In the process I learned more about the treachery of beauty than disintegration For instance I wanted to make a rug prompted by the meditative virtually monochrome painting Convolvulus by Paul Nash Made in 1930 the painting alludes to the demise of civilizations and of nature s vitality and indifference to culture Yet somehow I conceived a sumptuous rug rich in colour and an almost obscenely lovely vision of a deliquescent defunct architectural space The fracturing of representational form and structure into poetic abstraction is common to many of the featured works in the show The hand tufted wool rug occupies both the wall and floor The architectural imagery of the upper section seems to melt dripping to the lower half where pattern solidifies into an irregular floor scape The sculptures are presented on solid stone plinths but have a quality of cultivated uncertainty In their oscillation between representation and abstraction the paintings also conjure a sense of unease or shifting perspectives In the text work A Sun So Hot a central theme of the show is elucidated Nolan writes It is wise to beware beauty It is treacherous It aids in reconciling us to living in an irrational thrilling difficult and dull world and quite often beauty makes bearable and thinkable that which is quite rightly very difficult to bear or think An answer about the sky is an exhibition precipitated by the seductive narratives of brilliant failures and the way in which art contrives to make the world more beautiful Nolan again I asked a question about disintegration and the answer I got was art Nolan s exhibition
