‘red nerv’ by Miroslaw Balka will be inaugurated at Castello di Ama, Siena, Italy

Castello di Ama is pleased to announce the inauguration of red nerve, a new site-specific sculpture by Mirosław Bałka. This occasion marks the sixteenth addition to the series of permanent artworks conceived and realized for Castello di Ama for Contemporary Art, already including works by Anish Kapoor, Lee Ufan, Daniel Buren or Louise Bourgeois. At Castello di Ama, Bałka has suspended a single red thread in a cantina from ceiling to floor—a simple but radical gesture that has profound philosophical implications. A turning mechanism causes the thread to twitch and stir, investing it with a living presence and sensitizing the space around it. As the title implies, the thread is a metaphor for the human body, like a vein or umbilical cord that sustains a fragile and tenuous existence in the surrounding darkness. There is a spiritual dimension as well: the thread spanning the extreme height of the cantina metaphorically links earth and heaven, the visible realm of concrete things and the invisible realm of the spirit. In red nerve, Bałka has created an image of the contingency and vulnerability of the human condition. Curated by Philip Larratt-Smith Opening 15.10.2019 at Castello di Ama, Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, Italy.

Nelly Agassi at Pola Magnetyczne in Warsaw with Nicolas Grospierre

From the 20th of September to the 2nd of November, 2019 In Longue Durée, Nelly Agassi and Nicolas Grospierre develop a visual dialogue which revolves around time, architecture, and the physical absence of light. “Longue durée” – the long run – should be seen as a view on things, perceived over a long period of time, and focusing on the longstanding and imperceptibly slow changing events and their consequences, and understood as perhaps the most fundamental aspects of reality. In Heliography, Nicolas Grospierre’s new body of works, the photographer abandons one of his favourite topics, architecture, to deliver works that could be seen as the antithesis of Cartier Bressons’s concept of “decisive moment”. It is indeed the long perspective that is essential in Heliography, which could be described as photography without film, without camera, and even without paper: geometric patterns created by the sun over colorful velvet canvases, exposed over a period of 5 months. The long run is equally essential in Nelly Agassi’s practice, and her re-interpretation of architecture. In Longue Durée, Nelly Agassi deals with the the biography of the building housing the Pola Magnetyczne gallery. Plein-Air, one of her minimalist yet masterful interventions, revives architectural elements once integral to the house, and which have disappeared: the windows of the gallery space. Marking the absence of these windows allows her to connect with the long history of the house and explore erasure, preservation, and architecture’s capacity to change and repurpose by its users and by time, while at the same time echoing Grospierre’s Heliography, by referring to the absence/presence of light which the window allow, and which is fundamental in Grospierre’s works. Born out of the visual exchange between two autonomous artistic sensitivities, Longue Duréee eventually hints at notions of time, memory and immanent change, often imperceptible to the naked eye.

Naama Tsabar at EXPO CHICAGO

The Peninsula Chicago, in partnership with Kasmin, is pleased to present REVERB, an exhibition of contemporary art showcasing works by Naama Tsabar, James Nares and Ivan Navarro. The three artists practices explore movement, sound, and electricity, engaging with the rhythm and structure of the urban environment. This is the fifth consecutive year that The Peninsula Chicago has hosted a contemporary art exhibit at the hotel, in conjunction with EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, the eighth edition of which will take place at Navy Pier, September 20 to 22, 2019. On view and open to the public throughout the hotel’s public space from September 20 through October 22, 2019. Naama Tsabar’s Transition canvases repurpose the internal and external components of the amplifier—wires, speaker, circuit board—to create a new formal visual experience whilst retaining the object’s ability to broadcast sound. Tsabar’s sculptural works and sonic installations weave together iconic actions and objects from rock music (the guitar, the amplifier, the microphone). The motifs of femininity, gender, disruption, destruction, and reconstruction recur throughout her work and performances.
