Degrees of Freedom, Anti Gallery Gallery Show, 8-29.1.2015, London, Great Britain
35 artists and art groups are staging a takeover of the Espacio Gallery in Shoreditch in January 2015 to turn it into a demonstration site, an encounter space and an ideas laboratory.
Instigated by the Degrees of Freedom artist collective, the Anti Gallery Gallery Show is an experiment in finding ways for artists to change their relationship with each other, their artworks and the public within a traditional gallery space so as to subvert its governing ethos- competitive individualism within a consumerist culture.
The Show is designed as a festival rather than a normal exhibition and aims to create an ever changing, boisterous and engaging experience inside and outside the gallery space. The ambition is to engage artists and visitors, make them think, play and take part in ways that are thought provoking as well as fun.
The takeover is supported by Carlos de Lins, Director of the Espacio Gallery. ”The Anti Gallery Gallery Show makes some very serious points about the nature of the art world and having them made in a gallery space adds an interesting dimension to what they are saying”.
The Show features installations, performances, constructed situations, encounters and happenings that challenge the values, rituals, practices and conventions of the gallery culture. All artworks will be created or completed at the gallery or require participation from visitors.

15e Festival des cinémas différents et expérimentaux de Paris, France 15-20 Octobre 2013
The Paris Festival for Different and Experimental Cinema is an annual gathering organised by the Collectif Jeune Cinema, cooperative for distribution and promotion of visual and cinematic experimental practices .
Since 1999, the Paris Festival for Different and Experimental Cinema aims to present an eclectic program, both demanding and geographically as well as thematically diverse. It is a meeting plateform for everyone involved in the field of experimental cinema in France and internationally. It remains a space where many different and alternative cinematic forms collide. This ambition is particularly at stake within the competitive programs that present a wide spectrum of cinematic forms, from narrative ones to more documentary approach as well as abstract film.
A thematic series of program will take place aside the short film competition programs. This 15th edition will focus on the use of archival images as a way to question our collective and intimate memory. This theme will be the nerve joining the films presented in the competition’s program and will be articulated further within 8 focused screenings following two axes: the primary and essential axis being the historical practices of Found Footage at the core of the history of experimental cinema since its first Avants-Gardes. The other axis will focus on documentaries made from visual and sonorous archives as traces and material considered for their creative becoming. These re-readings of History(ies) shall reveal, as much as transform, their own revisited forms, ideologies and memories.
Finally, three public meetings and presentations will add to the screenings. The first one will consist of a series of presentations and discussiond around serveral ways to exhibit archival images. The second will be animated by two filmmakers who will open up a discussion regarding whether a new political cinema can emerge from a critical montage of images that drives viral media such as youtube. The last one will present different exemples of how experimental cinema has influenced mainstream fictions.
The printed version of the festival catalogue will be available on site. Several articles and an interview have been transcribed for the occasion in order to contribute to the debate on the reusing of images within the ongoing contention polarised by the issues of authors rights, the shift to digital technologies and the new modes of ciculation and access to images and sounds.
Open Doors, Portugal, 11 July 2013
11 july – 06 october 2013
Curator: Claudia Giannetti
Portas Abertas is the result of an invitation to artists worldwide to present a work that reflected their vision of the dichotomy between the historical context of the space where it is presented and the current world, as a sign that art can open doors to dialogue, a foundation for building a fairer, more tolerant and inclusive society.
Based on concepts of space-network, dialogue, decentralization, interculturality and inclusion, Portas Abertas embodies the philosophy and principles of this new venue for artistic and cultural expression as a contribution to a more cohesive and plural society.
Centered on a concept of equality and on a clear reference to coexistence and dialogue between different forms of expression, until 6 October works by artists from 60 countries, will be on display, using exactly the same media and dimensions, in a universal discourse without frontiers.
~The BaoBaB Project is an epic tale of life and death, love and nothingness, good and evil, humans and gods. The story spins around a man and a woman, a prophecy, an evil god, and the timeless quest for eternal love.~
Les 13 et 14 octobre 15H à 18 H, rendez-vous à l’atelier !
Le temps d’un week-end, les 13 et 14 octobre, près de 500 artistes plasticiens vous ouvrent les portes de leur atelier sur l’ensemble du territoire rhônalpin. Venez nombreux pour les rencontrer et découvrir leurs oeuvres !
La Région Rhône-Alpes et la Maison des arts plastiques en Rhône-Alpes (MAPRA) souhaitent, grâce à cet évènement, permettre à un public aussi large que possible de voir le travail des artistes dans leur atelier, mais aussi sensibiliser les institutionnels et les partenaires publics sur les conditions de création, parfois difficiles, que connaissent les artistes. Les grandes institutions (écoles d’art, musées…), les galeries associatives et privées, et les structures de diffusion de l’art contemporain sont associées à cette manifestion.

MARGINS EXHIBITION, Istanbul, Turkey
10.5 – 3.6. 2012
From May 10th until June 3rd, Art Suites Gallery in Beyoglu will be holding a groundbreaking exhibition
showing four international female contemporary artists.
‘Margins’, focuses on the areas that lack definition -be they geographical, emotional, psychological. The
dichotomies and the beauty found in these margins are expressed in medium ranging from drawing to
photography, painting, animation and video art.
Istanbul, a historical and cultural crossroads, was a poignant choice of destination for this show of
French, Czech and Turkish artists. They search to resolve certain deeply felt ambiguities, to understand
oppositions that arise from deconstructing their situations. The works come to be understood as
interpretations of the metaphysics of presence.
The battle for us all to clarify our position in the constantly developing and always changing 21st century
is one which each viewer can relate to. The questions of identity posed by these artists are of benefit to us
Artists: Hulya Kupcuoglu, Celine Henry, Marta Daeuble, Guler Ates. Curated by Camille Rodskjaer
www.margins.org.uk (online as of next week)
Sponsored by TAV Airports and GMW
Hulya transforms our self projections on to snapshots of idealised television clips and creates imaginary worlds
that reflect progressive technology and the expanding medium. Her work combines the contemporary with the
old period of Turkish film to try and find a place in which to fit our aspirations.
The notion of identity is equally important in Marta’s work. The artist finds herself torn between the influence
of her Czech communist upbringing, attracted to her country’s roots whilst having to deal with cultural
differences in her new home country. She uses memory and experience to guide her work, accepting subconscious
accidents to shape the artistic expression of her ambiguous national identity.
Guler’s duality of cultures become fused in work using symbols of Eastern exoticism and Victorian propriety.
Movement and flux emphasise the sense of the un-definable in an intimate inner world. The protagonist is in
possession of her space and independent of the outside. Guler and Marta seek to delineate a place or state of
mind that lacks clarity.
The borders that Céline searches to define are to be found between seeing and creating. The processes, both
mental and physical, result in covered and uncovered layers of drawings and photographs, pulling photography
and, more generally, artistic tools and images to its limits and fundamentally questioning the creative act.

Le 21e Arrivage, inauguré hier soir, est à découvrir dès aujourd’hui et jusqu’au dimanche 19 février. Les sept artistes sélectionnés pour cette nouvelle exposition – ils sont sans doute aujourd’hui plus de deux cents à avoir fréquenté ces cimaises, compris les brouettes de Noël et marchés de l’art -, tiendront la galerie sept semaines durant. Ce sont les peintres Marta Daeuble (69), Béatrice Chantfrault (Saint-Dizier), Clo (Cormontreuil), Pierrette Cornu (Besançon), Jean-Michel Cosson (Troyes) et les sculpteurs Geny (Vaucresson) et Paul Hérail (Viry-Châtillon). Des artistes venus de tous les horizons de l’art et de France.
La Haut-Marnaise Béatrice Chantfrault peint les corps. Clo, venue de Tinqueux, manie un pinceau onirique. Pierrette Cornu, travaille dans la veine expressionniste. Le Troyen Jean-Michel Cosson, familier des salons et manifestations régionales et parisiennes, marque une figuration étonnante, à la perspective déformée. La Lyonnaise Marta Daeuble donne à sa peinture des accents de Chirico. Quant aux sculptures, Geny est encore marqué dans son art des réminiscences d’une enfance africaine, dans les formes et la pratique de la récupération. Quant à Paul Hérail, il pratique un art fondé sur les bois flottés qui allie la poésie des formes à l’imaginaire marin. À voir.

Façade Video Festival Plovdiv
9 – 13 September 2011
URBAN SPACE converts its solely function as a mere backdrop and is about to be activated. Thus the neglected public space of Plovdiv´s Old Town is transformed into a vivid place of artistic encounter. Cineasts and random passer-bys form an audience in a unique setting. The facades themselves start to act, to talk and to move – they become alive.
VIDEO ART evacuates from its hermetic and privileged venues as art-house cinemas, galleries and museums. It is taken out into direct confrontation with the public and its surroundings. The facade becomes a new medium of encounter between artist and recipient, between art and urban environment. The festival would become a platform where cultural institutions, curators, artists, critics from all around the world can exchange ideas and experience in the field of the contemporary art.
COMPETITION ENTRIES of emerging and advanced video art authors will be selected by an internationally staffed jury. Furthermore a series of collateral events – including meetings, discussions, workshops, panels and concerts – will be offered to the audience.
Façade is a project of Art Today Association – Center for Contemporary art – Plovdiv, The Ancient Bath

One Minute Film & Video Festival Aarau
18 – 21 August 2011
A Film of 60 seconds duration is only limited in the dimension of time, because to the creative Exploration and the wideness of experimental possibilities are set only a few bounderies, if any.

The international One Minute Film & Video Festival Aarau was founded in 2003. It offers a pragmatic public platform for this special and interesting Filmformat. Beside the international competition the visitors can discover also a selection of other 1minute Festivals from around the world. These Selections are an important part of the Festival too. Altogether there are about 1000 One Minutes shown during the three days of the Festival. Filmmakers can present their Films at the filmmakers-brunch and there is Time and Space for questions and critics. Come and enjoy comedy, drama, philosophy and creativity in the rhythm of a minute.

Each work here tells a different story about coping with the change of the environment, but what unites them all is that it’s impossible for an artist not to be influenced by it in their work.
Mostly, it doesn’t matter to people where they are from until they move elsewhere. That’s when you really start to see who you are; to the point of surprising yourself with unexpected yearning for the national identity and culture, which is suddenly becoming comprehensible and visible to you. The language barrier especially is something that even those resumed to visual communication can find staggering. Settling into another culture is an emotional and adventurous process.
The wonderment of things being different – cars on the other side of the road, learning to talk at great length about the weather and the tube announcements in an alien language. You take it all in with all your heightened senses, initially feeling displaced and uprooted, but gradually beginning to grasp your environment and redefining your identify.
You are never going to be the same.
