Megan Broadmeadow, Harm van den Dorpel, Joey Holder, Katja Novitskova, XYMEMORY/Marlie Mul

Curated by Christopher Kulendran Thomas

Although mostly colour-blind, they are able to change the colour of their skin. They have chromatophores which are elastic sacs containing different pigments. Bands of muscle radiate from each chromatophore and are controlled by neurons from the motor centres in their brain. This allows them to change their colour at will to match their background for camouflage. They eat by deriving some or most of their nutrients from trapping and consuming animals or Protozoans, typically insects and other Anthropods. First they will inject a neurotoxin into the animal’s brain that kills off its ability to control its own movement but doesn’t paralyze it entirely. Then they produce compounds that affect the victim’s brain and manipulate their behaviour.

Andra Ursuta - Solitary Fitness - Venus Over Manhattan - NYC

through March 30th 2013

Standing watch in the gallery are three of Ursuta’s pole sculptures, part of an ongoing series of anthropomorphic sculptures made from stainless-steel poles. The current grouping, Dumb Belles, is supported by pedestals covered in tiles, the sort one might find in a gymnasium shower room. Their lean, angular bodies are testament to discipline and rigor; their impervious, sterile surfaces free of contamination and attachment. Fit, clean, alone.

Sara Ludy - Spheres 1-20 - Klaus Von Nichtssagend - NYC

through March 24th 2013

In her first solo show in New York, Vancouver-based artist Sara Ludy will present a single channel video work, Spheres 1-20. Comprised of twenty episodes on a loop, the work - projected on the gallery wall - features a rotating fly-through of 3D-generated environments. These “Spheres” are rendered digitally, then projected onto colored paper in Ludy’s studio and recaptured with a digital camera. The resulting high/low-fi picture quality mediates between the virtual and the physical spaces in which the artist works.

Rachel De Joode - The Hole and the Lump - Interstate - NYC

through March 17, 2013

In this exhibition, de Joode examines the fundamentals of sculpture: volume, material, texture, and scale, by transforming them through contemporary means of representation. Pushed and pulled terra cotta is photographed, printed on un-stretched canvas, and draped over a model in classical figurative poses. Pedestals are printed, rather than produced as volumetric shapes, and the sculptures that sit on them are no thicker than the wood they are mounted to.

Jacob Kassay, Oliver Mosset, Servane Mary - Ford Galaxy - Swiss Institute - NYC

through February 17th 2013

The 1964 Ford Galaxie was the first of the big performance Fords with bucket seats, console, and posh interior trim. This custom model features a stripped body by Jacob Kassay. Visible are all welding, dents, and scars of the metallic substructure. Detailing continues to the inside of the Galaxie, retrofitted by Olivier Mosset and Servane Mary. Here, the monochromatic carpets on the passenger and driver sides are formally similar to Mosset’s minimal canvases. The overall patterned upholstery designed by Servane Mary visually complements the flooring. Appropriating an image of a flag on fire, Mary has installed the fabric with the flame beginning at the nose of the vehicle and extending to its back on both the seats and headliner. The Galaxie is noted for its historical interest, luxury, refinement, race image-rub-off, robust construction, and straight-line performance.

Omar Khayyam - group show - Eli Ping - NYC

through February 16th 2013

Mathew Brady, Borden Capalino, Doug Ischar, Brie Ruais, Ryan Wolfe, and Michael Yaniro

Omar Khayyam was a 12th century Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and poet. He wrote one of the major mathematical treatises of the Middle Ages,Explanations of the difficulties in the postulates in Euclid's Elements. In 1859, Edward Fitzgerald published a translation of his poems titled Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, though the authorship of the original material and the accuracy of the translations are dubious. In 1917 Omar Khayyam won the Kentucky Derby.

Alicia Kwade, Becky Beasley - Lisa Cooley - NYC

through March 17th 2013
Lisa Cooley is pleased to present a two-person exhibition by Becky Beasley and Alicja Kwade. Their works share an interest in industrial materials as well as dark, blunt and sometimes opaque formal qualities. Yet these dark aspects are rivaled by the artists’ engagement with the domestic, perception, literature or personal narrative. This is the first time either artist has shown at the gallery.

The Magic Bul­let - group show - TORRI - Paris

through February 16th 2013

Je­re­my Shaw, Rob Pruitt, Ge­ne­ral Idea, Ber­ger&Ber­ger
On view for the first time in France, Magi© Bul­let (1992), is em­ble­ma­tic of the play­ful-​pop-​po­li­ti­cal work of Ca­na­dian trio Ge­ne­ral Idea. Floo­ding the gal­le­ry cei­ling with do­zens of he­lium-​in­fla­ted sil­ver pills, the work mir­rors the phy­si­cal reac­tion to drugs with the hear­ty bal­loons shrin­king over time to pro­gres­si­ve­ly lose their weight­less­ness and fall, one by one, to the floor. Vi­si­tors are in­vi­ted to take these inert, fal­len en­ve­lopes with them when they go, tur­ning ano­ther page in the life of the Magi© Bul­let. The “get­ting high then down” me­ta­phor is also a re­flec­tion of the dis­se­mi­na­tion of HIV that so pro­found­ly mar­ked the gay com­mu­ni­ty in the late XXth cen­tu­ry, clai­ming the lives of two mem­bers of Ge­ne­ral Idea.

Olivier Mosset - Campoli/Presti - London

through February 16th 2013

Campoli Presti is pleased to present Olivier Mosset's second solo exhibition with the gallery following his solo exhibition at Indipendenza Studio, Rome in 2012. Mosset emerged in the Sixties and has been associated with a multitude of art historical movements and contexts. Although his work addresses purest ideals reflected in the Minimalist colour-field painting of Barnett Newman and Ad Reinhardt, the artist began to critique Modernist value systems in painting during his involvement with Daniel Buren, Michel Parmentier and Niele Toroni in the group BMPT.

Mira Sanders - Lignes de fuite - Galerie VidalCuglietta - Brussels

through March 15th 2013

Lines of Escape. As a “user of space”, Mira Sanders develops her personal “journal” step by step (pas à pas) 1 and,rather than drawing up an “inventory” of space, she “invents” it 2. Using different media and methods, she produces pictural, sound-tracked transpositions of a relationship with the world consisting of encounters with otherpeople and places. These are the fruit of her journeyings near and far: from Brussels to Beirut, Charleroi to Famagusta, Namur to Venice, via China… And as she goes, the artist takes hold of the word “reality” in its plurality, evenwriting it into new phrasings.

Snout To Tail - Anna-Sophie Berger, Zak Kitnick, Sean Paul - JTT - NYC

through February 17th 2013

In the uniquely long lifespan of an art object, a gallery might be where it spends the least time. Then it goes back to wherever it came from, or somewhere else. Anticipating this movement, it reconciles what is lost, and appropriates what is gained.If industrial product design is a method of organizing production before it is a method of configuring objects, it is also a method of anticipating the sites they end up in and the demands placed upon them. This process rarely produces a single object.
