Richard Mosse: Incoming @ Barbican – The Curve / until 23rd April 2017 ?

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
The Curve
Sat–Wed 11am–8pm
Thu–Fri 11am–9pm

@ Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

Free entry

www.barbican.org.uk

Barbican Art Gallery has invited conceptual documentary photographer and Deutsche Börse Photography Prize winner Richard Mosse to create an immersive multi-channel video installation in the Curve. In collaboration with composer Ben Frost and cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, Mosse has been working with an advanced new thermographic weapons and border imaging technology that can see beyond 30km, registering a heat signature of relative temperature difference. Classed as part of advanced weapons systems under International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Mosse has been using this export controlled camera against its intended purpose, to create an artwork about the refugee crisis unfolding in the Aegean Sea, off the coast of Libya, in Syria, the Sahara, the Persian Gulf, and other locations.

Mosse is renowned for work that challenges documentary photography. In his recent work The Enclave (2013) – a six-channel installation commissioned by the Irish Pavilion for the 2013 Venice Biennale – Mosse employed a now discontinued 16mm colour infrared film called Kodak Aerochrome that transformed the green landscape of the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo into vivid hues of pink to create a surreal dreamscape. Questioning the ways in which war photography is constructed, Mosse’s representation of the ongoing armed conflict in eastern Congo advocates a new way of looking.

Silke Otto-Knapp @ Camden Arts Centre / 30th March 2014

Silke Otto-Knapp at Camden Arts CentreTIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
Tue-Sun 10:00-18:00
Wed 10:00- 21:00

@ Camden Arts Centre, Arkwright Road, London NW3 6DG

Free entry

www.camdenartscentre.org

Silke Otto-Knapp makes paintings of performance and landscape, approaching the canvas as a stage and a site of orchestrated scenarios. Gouache and watercolour are applied in delicate layers, depicting scenes of a fugitive beauty and imbuing the works with an ethereal magic.

In Monday or Tuesday, Otto-Knapp’s subjects are rendered almost entirely in black and silver pigments which appear to bathe the works in moonlight, the source of which at times looms in the distance, ambiguously appearing as a stage instruction or theatrical lighting device. The works bring together the reality of landscape with the pretence of stage design to raise questions around decorative surface, spatial depth and pictorial construction.

The central motif of performance will be expanded in the supporting public programme which includes a new performance in the gallery spaces by LA based dancer-choreographer Flora Weigmann, a salon afternoon featuring dancer Kate Coyne and a dance masterclass led by Nissa Nishikawa.

Alongside the paintings, the exhibition will include new collages and etchings developed during a residency at The Banff Centre, Canada. The exhibition will be accompanied by a new publication with an essay by Sabeth Buchmann, co-produced with Charlottenborg, Copenhagen where some of the works in the exhibition were shown in 2013.
