- The Alchemists
- September 13 – 14, 2013
The Alchemists, an exhibition featuring paintings atop 18th Century prints by Mia Von Schülern and mixed media dioramas by Sara Flores Vio, opens Friday, September 13, 2013 in the home of Gleb Amadeus Smirnoff in Venice, Italy. The artistic practices of these two artists transmute, contort, harmonize and combine various elements and imagery, resulting in worlds saturated with magic: clouds of eyes, a seashell of royal descent, a sinister moon, a horned dame, a miniature circus, a hoard of unworldly creatures, and the procession of wonders continues. The exhibition will also feature three collaborative works by the artists.
- Archival Matters
- May 26 – 27, 2012
The archivist produces more archive, and that is why the archive is never closed. It opens out of the future.
This quote from Derrida’s Archive Fever (1994) serves as the point of departure for Archival Matters, Parlour No. 22, which takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark. The participating artists, Kristina Bengtsson, Timothy Citizen, Kevin Malcolm, and Heeseop Yoon, have each contributed pieces that capture a moment, setting, feeling, and/ or event and furthermore explore the transformative nature of archival documentation. Archival Matters additionally becomes a physical collection of archives—a forum where conversations between them can exist, offering new interpretations and assuring their perpetual existence.
