DISPLAY  |  BLADE BANNER works by Costanza Candeloro, Lia Cecchin, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Alek O., Elena Radice, Chiara Terraneo — Through B—B artists are invited to produce an image all-over printed in a 1x1m silk fabric, as a symbolic 'pixel' cut from their world. This series of modules is a collection produced by _\|/_ and showed during the salon, fed every year by new collaborations, with the idea of building the content for a future itinerant exhibition that can present a view of the most vibrant italian art scene. The banners exist in two copies, one given to the author while the other is kept in the collection  |   28/29.11.15  2pm—7pm  EVASTOMPERstudio

 

 

DISPLAY  |  TOMORROW I COULD SAY SOMETHING ELSE by Nathalie Du Pasquier Nathalie Du Pasquier defines herself 'A self-taught designer and artist'. She started her career in 1979 and in 1981 she was a founder and designer of the Memphis' Group in Milan. In 1987, at the end of this collective experience, she decided to devote herself exclusively to the art of painting. Thanks to her natural predisposition to the spatial composition, Nathalie started a personal research in which everyday objects are transformed into architectural volumes, shaped by the colour and their own personality. In recent years Du Pasquier has taken part in numerous self-publishing projects, such as the limited edition of 50 notebooks and publishing collaborations, like the ones with Nieves ⟨Zurich⟩ and Corraini Edizioni ⟨Mantova⟩. Her most recent titles include: Don’t Take These Drawings Seriously, curated by Omar Sosa ⟨powerhouse books, New York, 2015⟩, Milanese ⟨Fotokino, Marsiglia, 2015⟩ and A—Z, an english/italian spelling book in which every letter is linked to a concept, an idea of language and meaning ⟨Automatic Books, Venezia, 2015⟩ nathaliedupasquier.com  |  Opening 27.11.15  6pm—10pm | 28/29.11.15  2pm—7pm  Agalma

 

 

DISPLAY   TWO KINDLING STICKS by Good Press Glasgow⟩, and further, a gathered labour of quasi-fictive production feat. Gordon Douglas, Oscar Gaynor, Connie Butler, Quintessa Matranga, Fritz Welch, Samuel Hasler and Gil Gentile — Locating a substance; acquainting the rough with the smooth in the midst of a precarious foundation see: quasi-fictive production. FFO the potentiality of how language, aesthetic representations and artefacts sprawled across surfaces might observe themselves cross-pollinating and become tied together and/or intentionally locate their bodies in a precise moment to expand and assemble yet unknown rationales. See also: the graphic novel; experimental literature; assemblage; broadcasting; performance; craft; circulars; piracy. Small sticks or twigs used for lighting fires. 'In the forest there is no shortage of kindling, sticks, short logs or anything else needed to kindle a vigorous campfire and keep it burning effortlessly.' In neurology a process by which a seizure or other brain event is both initiated and its recurrence made more likely. 'These studies comprise two general lines of inquiry that include studies of the phenomena of long-term potentiation and kindling.' — goodpressgallery.co.uk  |  28/29.11.15  2pm—7pm  Pijama

 

 

DISPLAY/TALK  |  WALDEN: DESERT AND OASIS, WOOD AND CABIN, ILLEGAL BOOK AND CRYPTO-UTOPIA exhibition by PARASITE 2.0 — 'The project focuses on the relationship between the mythical and the ascetic idea of desert, places for physical and mental isolation with the drafting of anonymous and subversive texts. Personal isolation, primeval state, original construction of the shelter in physical and mental deserts, “shamanic” outputs, ready to break into the collective life, to destabilize and awaken. In these acts lie the crash between two of the most extreme tendencies of the human, the inner isolation and the full openness at the community and the world. Working on a participation that will act on multiple levels - an hybrid narrative show, an installation on sprint threshold and a lecture - the project refers to these practices and to the physicality of places in relation with them. Desert islands in which you can imagine, experience and develop new forms of social and collective life.'

DISPLAY  |  booksonline.fr Paris⟩  We invited Pierre Hourquet, creator of the booksonline.fr  platform, to produce a series of six postcards to celebrate the online project completed in 2013 and existing now for consultation only, as an exceptional glipse into photographic research. 'The books online project, according to its creator, Pierre Hourquet, is a 'free-access library' using the same codes that make the printed book familiar and made with the medium of the Internet in mind. The site specializes in photography books and retains much of what makes this genre special in its printed form: the intimacy, the intended juxtapositions and the suspense of flipping. Through a click-turn effect, consciously virtual, simplified design and great photography, this site presents a new future for the book.'

PERFORMANCE  |  Montez Press presents It's July Interjection LOVELY LITTLE HOSTAGE by A. M. Bang and LINETYPE Berlin⟩ — Lovely Little Hostage is an infatuation that lingers on despite separation anxiety and time travel. A. M. Bang  as writer-orchestrator, laying down the structure. LINETYPE as carto-grapher, mapping with video and sonic landscapes. They cruise Japan. The result is a tangle of words floating through train stations, volcanic sunsets, love hotels, tea ceremonies. All made available in your very own private Karaoke Box. The narrative illuminates paradoxes and pleasures of unchartered territories in time, geography, and relationships.

TALK  |  Alice Cannavà, Stephano Stephanowic and Onga / Boring Machines on the new Occulto Magazine Issue δ: DREAMS — The fifth release of Occulto Magazine, Issue δ (4,66920160910299067185320382…) is dedicated to a very special topic: dreams. Expect fictional dinosaurs, 8 billion dollars supercolliders, oxygen and cigarettes coming from the very same source, Bette Davis’ eyes, hacked conversations with angels and illusions in motion. Expect no Viennese doctors and no neuroscience breaking news. Not that we’re not interested in such things; they just didn’t come to mind. 'I had an absurd dream: I had a degree in the visual arts, yet I had ended up working as webdesigner and developer, and in the meanwhile I had started a bizarre self-produced science magazine that featured texts and projects by researchers, historians and artists. I was often talking a weird language that included words such as 'Rechtsschutzversiche-rungsgesellschaften' and I was going back to university at the age of 35. It was fun, but it all turned into a nightmare when I checked my bank statement. Anyway, despite some hassle and delay, I managed to print the fifht issue of the mag: If I remember correctly, it was about fictional and real animals of the past, present and future; an amatorial astronomic observatory based on Hollywood classic movies; universal languages sold on Amazon for few hundreds Euros; and much more.' Alice Cannavà. The issue included Occulto Compilation #4 compiled by Onga / Boring Machines in limited CD edition or digital download — occultomagazine.com   |  29.11.15  4pm—5pm  O’~SoundOhm

 

 

TALK  Archive Books on Chris Marker — Archive Books will introduce some publications made by the french filmmaker Chris Marker 1921–2012, who published through Éditions du Seuil, two volumes entitled Commentaires, between 1961 and 1967. Marker himself, who had collaborated as both an author and editor with the publishers – for whom he had conceived and curated, amongst others, the illustrated volumes of Petite Planète series 1954–1964⟩ – designed the two publications that contain the ‘commentaries’ or scripts of his first films. As a cineast and bibliophile, Marker’s interest in the relationship between images and text underscored both the film-essay and the book ‘ersatz cinema’ — archivebooks.org  |  29.11.15  6pm—7pm  O’~SoundOhm
