The Language Of Human Consciousness at Athr Gallery, Jeddah

OPENING / THURSDAY 10TH JULY, 2014
AT 9.30 PM IN ATHR GALLERY, JEDDAH


For thousands of years, the question of whether the basics of geometry came naturally to all humans or if they had to be taught; has been explored. According to Plato’s writings, Socrates attempted to determine how well an uneducated slave in a Greek household understood geometry, and eventually concluded that the slave’s soul ‘must have always possessed this knowledge’.
 
In the midst of startling havoc; humans by this very instinct seek to find order in this chaos, to reason with it; translating it to a language that is perhaps visual and universal is a common field of exploration for scientists and artists alike.
 
Athr Gallery will deliver a groundbreaking exhibition titled The Language of Human Consciousness in July 2014 and will include work by 38 artists from around the world. Most of these artists will be exhibiting work for the first time in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East at large.


The Language of Human Consciousness takes geometry as a starting point, accepting its heritage as a symbol of purity, intelligence and perfection and bringing it towards a more contemporary interpretation as a language for exploring the atypical, the imperfect and the alternative. Works are brought together that seek to dissect segments of times, contexts and places and open them up to universal interpretation. The works, in the potency of the contradiction between their infinite possibilities as geometric compositions and the range of their references – social, political, art historical or other - are reduced to a neutral ground: to a human and conceivable form.

 Jean Gorin, 1954

Jean Gorin, 1954

Sculptural drawings are interesting in the way they reveal the foundations of pure form. They serve as a lab for the sculptor’s research—they are where sculptors envisage the scale and medium of volumes. One drawing often leads to another, so that new forms emerge in the process, as can be seen in the work of Jean-Gabriel Coignet. There are classic preparatory sketches with annotated details, such as those by Etienne Béothy (1897–1961) and Emile Gilioli (1911–1977), yet there are also finished drawings for anticipated projects, such as one by Jean Gorin (1899–1981) for a project executed in Nancy in 1954, featured on the invitation to this show. Then there is a parallel practice of drawing that enjoys its own status within a sculptor’s oeuvre. Timo Nasseri, for example, constructs his drawings by exploring mathematical formulas inherited from the Arabic world. Nathalie Delasalle, who sculpts in white, uses paper collage to contend with multiple hues of white, directly attacking form in her cut-outs. Denis Pondruel, meanwhile, reveals the hidden sides and inner architecture of his concrete cubes through axonometric drawings. And André Stempfel sometimes anticipates the movement of his works through sets of drawings, while at other times he hews their forms in paper cut-outs. Finally, drawing is used poetically by Baudin, a surveyor of time who weighs and measures multiple things in his works. These are some of the many facets of sculptors’ drawings that visitors to the gallery will be able to discover up through April 30th.

Schönheit der Mathematik

3. September - 13. Oktober 2013

Schloss Agathenburg, 21684 Stade-Agathenburg

One and One#8 detail.jpg

Papierarbeiten von Tina Jonsbu, Timo Nasseri, Casandra Popescu, Thomas & Renée Rapedius und Ignacio Uriarte

Kuratiert von Sabine Mila Kunz

Naturwissenschaftliche Gesetze offenbaren oft eine verborgene Schönheit. Wenn etwa in der Mathematik Formeln so lange von Überflüssigem befreit und aufs Äußerste reduziert werden, gilt diese Exaktheit als ästhetisch. Der Titel der Ausstellung "Schönheit der Mathematik" übernimmt diese Behauptung und stellt sie einer Gruppenschau mit zeitgenössischen Künstlern voran, deren Werke sich auf naturwissenschaftliche Systeme beziehen, ohne diese einfach ‚nur' zu bebildern. Vielmehr liegen den Bildern und Objekten bestimmte Ordnungsprinzipien zugrunde. Ähnlich wie in der Mathematik führen sie zu künstlerischen Ergebnissen von formaler Strenge, schlichter Eleganz und minimalistischer Anmutung. Allen Arbeiten gemeinsam ist die Verwendung von Papier - als Untergrund von Zeichnungen oder als Material für Objekte und Installationen, die geschnitten, gerissen oder gefaltet sein können.

Die Ausstellung wird gefördert durch das Niedersächsische  Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kultur und die Kreissparkasse Stade/Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung

A century of light and motion in art, 1913-2013

Notions of space, vision and light run through the abstract art of the 20th century and interest many world renowned contemporary artists such as Ann Veronica Janssens, Anish Kapoor, John Armleder, Carsten Höller, Philippe Decrauzat, Jeppe Hein, Felice Varini and Xavier Veilhan.

By putting vibration along with the spectator’s perception in the centre of their works, they set up multiple resonances with optical and kinetic art, which first emerged at the Movement exhibition in Denise René’s Paris gallery in 1955, but also, more broadly, with what was later called "perceptual art" at the exhibition The Responsive Eye at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965.
