Anja Puntari’s project Kit Flowknow will be presented on October 13 in Venice.

Gabriele Di Matteo, Questo quadro forse Vi aiuterà a vedere meglio, 1994. Olio su tela, 129 x 70 cm.

Anja Puntari’s project Kit Flowknow  will be presented on October 13 in Venice.

During the last five years, Anja Puntari has extended her artistic research to the field of business, especially business coaching. In the context of this aspect of her investigation, she developed Flowknow, a methodology that uses the artistic approach and artworks for facilitating business coaching; and the Flowknow Cards are tools to apply this approach.

For the Flowknow Cards of Emotions, produced by Performant in collaboration with ECCENTRIC Art & Research, Puntari invited eleven artists from ECCENTRIC: Ivana Adaime Makac, Camilla Alberti, Tomislav Brajnović, Sarah Ciracì, Gabriele Di Matteo, Federico Luger,  Brian Montuori, Anja Puntari, Axel Straschnoy e Massimiliano Viel ; and one invited artist, Teresa Capasso, to feature 3 to 6 images of their works in the cards. The images have been selected by Gabriela Galati together with the artists, and the whole Kit includes also a dictionary of competences (from a previous deck of cards), a glossary of the emotions of this deck, and a catalogue with all the works and images featured on the cards.

The project will be presented on October 13 at Tese dei Soppalchi dell’Arsenale, Venezia.

Minority Report: Camilla Alberti’s work will presented on September 28th at Spazio22, Milan.

Camilla Alberti, Landscape 7 (2016). Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 80 cm.

ECCENTRIC Art & Research is pleased to present Camilla Alberti’s work Landscape (2016-17) as part of the section Minority Report.

Landscape will be presented on September 28th at Spazio22 Window Project and will remain on view during the duration of the exhibition.
In Landscape, Alberti investigates through painting form and matter that conform the Earth. The series starts from the isolation of a detail in a picture landscape, which is then reworked through study drawings that simplify the form. Then, the artist uses painting to redefine neat shapes that create a sharp contrast with the flat surface of the monochrome background.

Opening September 28th, 7pm, Spazio22, viale Sabotino 22-20135, Milano, www.spazio22.com

 

ECCENTRIC Art & Research is delighted to present Federico Luger’s first solo exhibition in Milan “Mi casa es tu casa”, opens September 18th.

Federico Luger, Swiss Alps, the End of the Illusion (2013). C-print on aluminium. Edition of 3.

ECCENTRIC Art & Research is delighted to present Federico Luger’s first solo exhibition in Milan Mi casa es tu casa, which opens on September 18th, 2017.

The title of the show (my house is your house) alludes both to the fact that it will take place at Secondo Pensiero, a space which is in fact a B&B, thus a temporary house to its guests, and also because one of the series, The Swiss Alps, has been inspired by Luger’s second home in Switzerland.

The exhibition will present different series of works: The Swiss Alps, the End of the Illusion (2013) the aforementioned set of photographs that addresses the end of bank secrecy in the country; small paintings from the series Bananas, a selection of two massive paintings which deal with the human figure, more specifically with portraiture; the Line Concept collages, two works from the Monochrome series and the almost complete Venice Book series. This last set of works on paper will be installed in one of the rooms, so it will only be visible during the opening evening.

Federico Luger is a Venezuelan artist and gallerist. After several years spent travelling around Europe, he opened an art space in Milan, which then turned into Federico Luger Gallery. In the twelve years during which the gallery has been operating, Luger has produced more than fifty exhibitions. However Luger never stopped his artistic practice, which he preferred to conduct in secrecy, reflecting on conceptual art, perception of art, and the art system in general. Both his activities, artist and gallerist have enriched each other. This exhibition and Luger’s oeuvre deeply reflect on the complexity of the twofold nature of his passion.

The exhibition will be open from September 18th thought October 18th, on Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 7pm, or by appointment.

To make an appointment, or to request images and further information please contact Gabriela Galati at info@ec-centric.eu.

Axel Straschnoy’s film Etsivä (The Detective) premieres on May 26 at Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki.

Etsivä (The Detective)
Axel Straschnoy
360° 3D Film
Commissioned by Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art
For ARS17+ Online Art arsplus.fi
Premiere on 26 May at 14:00 at
Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art
Mannerheiminaukio 2
00100 Helsinki
kiasma.fi

Commissioned by Kiasma for ARS17, Etsivä is both a part of and a film on ARS17. Taking at face value Virtual Reality’s promise to reproduce the world, the film plays with the tension between the experience of the exhibition and its representation in virtual reality. The soundtrack, inspired in Sigfried Kracauer’s Der Detektiv-Roman, highlights virtual reality’s positivist roots. The film will be available as part of ARS17+—the exhibition’s online section—creating a distance between the experience of the show at the museum and its experience on the film. Once the show has ended, Etsivä will remain as the most realistic documentation of what it was.

Milja Liimatainen writes in the ARS17 catalogue: “Straschnoy considers what happens when our physical contact with material objects decreases or ceases altogether. What happens to the work’s aura if the viewer only ever encounters its representation(s)?”

Etsivä will be available for preview between 24 and 27 May at arteBA, Buenos Aires at Del Infinito (Booth C4). It will premiere on May 26 at 14:00 at the Art & Virtual Reality seminar in Kiasma, Helsinki, after which it will be available to be downloaded from its website arsplus.fi or to be watched at the Museum’s library. Between 30 May and 2 June, it will be presented at Inter Arts Center, Malmö . In October,  it will be part of Immersive Worlds, Straschnoy’s first solo exhibition in Italy, at ECCENTRIC Art & Research, Milan.

Axel Straschnoy (born 1978) is a visual artist from Buenos Aires, based in Helsinki. His long-term and research focused projects include Kilpisjärvellä (2011-12), a planetarium film on exploration in northern Lapland under the Northern Lights, La Figure de la Terre (2014), a short film based on the book The Figure of the Earth by 18th century French mathematician and explorer Pierre Louis  Moreau de Maupertuis, the lecture-performance series Notes on the Double Agent (ongoing), and Le rappel àl’ordre (2016), a film on the packing and shipping of artworks. For Neomylodon Listai Ameghino (2015), he has followed the Neomylodon’s trail back to its cave in Last Hope Sound, Southern Chilean Patagonia, and is in the midst of a multi-part, traveling exhibition to bring the Neomylodon’s remains back together one hundred and twenty years since its discovery. Straschnoy has participated in Le Pavillon residency at Palais de Tokyo (2008-09) and trained in Art History at University of Buenos Aires.

Etsivä is narrated by Pekka Strang and its soundtrack was designed by Karri Niinivaara. The camera operator was Iddo Soskolne and the graphic design was by Geraldine de San Bruno. A mobile application was built by Quadion Technologies to make the film available worldwide.

Etsivä is produced by Kolme Perunaa with support from the Finnish Cultural Foundation, Oskar Öflunds Stiftelse, AVEK, Quadion Technologies and the Arts Promotion Center, Finland. It has been commissioned by Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki and it is in the collection of Kiasma / Finnish National Gallery.
