Exhibitions now through August

I feel humbly fortunate to be exhibiting this summer in several locations in Korea and abroad, to have met so many brilliant Curators and to be a small part of their ideas, visions, dreams and themes, some of which aim to promote social change and focus on the belief that art has provocative and transformative qualities. Below are the venues and for ART BUSAN these are their hours: 

May 20 (Friday) until 22 (Sunday) from 12:00 -22:00
May 23 (Monday) from 11:00 – 17:00

Invitation summary of exhibitions spring summer 2016

Artists’ books as an alternative kind of “Prescription”

“Intimate and cathartic” refers to both: the process of making a book and the process of reading. Book as an object encourages intimate interaction between the maker and the object, the object and the reader. Art as an activity veers towards the cathartic experiences between the artist and the object; the object and the viewer. Adding to that a medical context, results Medical Humanities and an approach, which considers artist’s books as a tool to aid healing and facilitate communication between doctors and patients.”

“I was honoured to co-curate Prescriptions exhibition, which is now open until August 14 at Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, Canterbury. The exhibition is part of Artists’ Books and Medical Humanities project by the University of Kent’s School of English.”  Excerpt from our Curator Egidija Čiricaitė’s beautiful blog piece. A must read!

Photos of the private view day can be seen here. For the online catalog please click here.

“Voyage, voyage” last stop was Germany but will it be the last stop for these artists?

Certainly not! This travelling exhibition about the artist as nomad did a final stop in Atelierhausen in Aachen, Germany where it opened up with a wonderful party including performance and installations. Photos can be seen here. The international artists chosen for this show have experienced many journeys and will probably continue moving and retelling their stories, changing their perspectives as they mature and evolve. Perhaps that’s the beauty of not committing to just one place and allowing yourself to see the world from different angles: Amira Al-Sharif, Gaby Berglund Cardenas, Milene Evers, Cora de Lang, Teppo Korte, A+B, Pernille Londstrup, Wolfgang in der Wiesche & Kyongju Park, Marie-Josée Comello, Sonja Mischor, Gerhard Gunter and Hella Frowein-Hagenah. Very grateful to be part of this project curated by Jeroen Van Paassen and running until May 15th.
