We are pleased to announce the new catalogue CROSSOVER/S – published on the occasion of Miroslaw Balka’s solo show held at Pirelli HangarBicocca.
Edited by Vicente Todolí // Texts by Roberto Calasso, Simone Menegoi, Anda Rottenberg // The book reflects the relevance of language in Balka’s work through a critical essay by Anda Rottenberg as well as a detailed chronology of the artist’s solo shows since 1985. To cite the artist: “If you look at my solo exhibitions, if you read title after title, you can follow the ‘line’ of my art.” The publication, edited by Vicente Todolí, also includes a reprint of chapter 7 of the book The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony (1988) by Roberto Calasso, considered by the artist as a prelude to the motifs and figures to be found in the artist’s work, as well as a critical essay by Simone Menegoi, focusing on the dialectics between the individual and the collectivity.
CROSSOVER/S is available for purchase at: Mousse Publishing

Borderland — I Walked a Far Piece
New installation film
As part of Monde Flottant, 14th Biennale de Lyon, France
Curated by Emma Lavigne
Sept. 20, 2017 – Jan. 7, 2018
Melik Ohanian’s work Borderland – I Walked a Far Piece is conceived in a marginal, de-territorialised territory, on a floating New York rooftop, lit by a nocturnal bonfire, as a new huis clos. Bordeland is an open stage on which the artist presents characters from Rudolf Wurlitzer’s novel Flats, leaving them to get on with their lives in the present, mingling their travellers’ tales with those of other characters, migrants whom no one wants to take in anymore. Over the course of a single night, when the lights of the electric city seem to have gone out, Melik Ohanian weaves a resonant tapestry of fragmented rhythms, Beat poetry and the nomadic lives of these celestial vagrants.
