4 Video works on ritualistic behavior in various forms from:

HARMONY KORINE, MATTHEW STONE, KLARA LIDEN & HANNA LIDEN, JONAH FREEMAN & JUSTIN LOWE

OPENING: FRIDAY DECEMBER 2, 2011. TIME: 17.00 - 22.00
EXHIBITION PERIOD: DECEMBER 3 – DECEMBER 17, 2011

Harmony Korine U.S (b.1973)

Curb Dance (2011) sees Harmony Korine delivering a new style of tap dancing. While dancing away, Korine explains about his passion for the self-invented urban sport, which shares trademark lingo with other “urban sports”. Critically acclaimed auteur, artist and author Harmony Korine has had a great impact on independent art throughout the past decade. He has recently directed the short film Umshini Wam (bring me my machine gun) in collaboration with the South African band Die Ant Word, his latest feature film Thrash Humpers received the CPH DOX AWARD in 2009.

Matthew Stone U.K (b.1982)

In Bodies (2011), bodies float, full of life, in a silent weightless choreographed ritual. Akin to Stones earlier work there is an element of shamanistic practice in the piece. Bodies has an almost hypnotic effect, you loose yourself in fascination of the human body. Matthew Stone currently has a solo exhibition at The Hole in New York. He has recently taken part in Performa 11 and created an installation for the Orientale exhibition at this year’s Venice Biannual. The Sunday Times has named Matthew Stone the most influential British artist under 30. Matthew Stone will have his second solo exhibition with V1 Gallery in 2012.

Klara Lidén SE (1979) & Hanna Lidén SE (1976)

In Techno Battle (2007) the two Swedish sisters engage in a destructive ritualistic game of dodgeball. The work projects equal measures of apocalyptic comedy, anti status quo rage and punk relief. Both Hanna Liden and Klara Liden have received praise for their work. Klara Lidén has just been awarded the special Carnegie Award Grant, recently exhibited at Serpentine Gallery, London, The Venice Biennale and Moderna Museet, Stockholm. Hanna Lidén has recently shown at Maccarone, New York, and Salon 94, New York.

Jonah Freeman U.S (1975) & Justin Lowe U.S (1976)

A Selection of Pharmaceutical Advertisements from the San San International (2011) is a hallucinatory apocalyptic infomercial, in equal measures disturbing and soothing. The work is a visual trip through new age consumerism fueled by the powerful psychotropic drug Marasa – Haitian for the sacred twins of voodoo. It was recently, November 2011, included in Freeman and Lowe’s performance at The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles. Freeman and Lowe have received critical acclaim for their large-scale installations Black Acid Co-op, Hello Meth Lab in the Sun and Bright White Underground.

We look forward to seeing you.

4 video værker om ritualer af:

Harmony Korine, Matthew Stone, Klara Lidén & Hanna Lidén, Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe.

FERNISERING FREDAG DEN 2. DECEMBER 2011. FRA 17.00 - 22.00
UDSTILLINGSPERIODE: 3. DECEMBER – 17. DECEMBER 2011.

Harmony Korine U.S (b.1973)

I Curb Dance (2011) opviser Harmony Korine en ny form for urban stepdans. Imens han danser, forklarer Korine om sin passion for denne nye dans med et vokabularium, som minder om, det man kender fra andre urbane “sportsgrene”. Harmony Korine har som filmskaber, kunstner og forfatter haft stor indflydelse på kunstscenen igennem de sidste 10 år. I år har han ud over Curb Dance også skabt video værket Umshini Wam (hent mit maskingevær) i samarbejde med den Sydafrikanske hip-hop gruppe Die Ant Word. Korine’s seneste fuldlængde film Trash Humpers modtog CPH DOX AWARD i 2009.

Matthew Stone U.K (b.1982)

I Bodies (2011) flyder kroppe, fulde af liv, i et lydløst og vægtløst koreograferet ritual. Værket er beslægtet med Matthew Stones tidligere arbejde, som også rummer elementer af shamansk karakter. Bodies har en næsten hypnotisk effekt, man fortaber sig i fascinationen af menneskekroppen. Matthew Stone udstiller i øjeblikket på The Hole i New York, hvor han også har været en del af Performa 11. Tidligere på året var han en del af Orientale udstillingen på dette års Venedig Biennale. The Sunday Times har tidligere udnævnt Stone til at være den mest betydningsfulde britiske kunstner under 30. I 2012 viser V1 Gallery Matthew Stones anden soloudstilling i Danmark.

Klara Lidén SE (1979) & Hanna Lidén SE (1976)

I Techno Battle (2007) er de to svenske søskende engageret i et destruktivt, ritualistisk spil høvdingebold. Værket projicerer lige dele apokalyptisk komedie, teknologi raseri og destruktiv forløsning. Techno Battle har fornyligt været vist på Palais De Tokyo, Paris. Klara Lidén har netop modtaget Carnegie Awards særlige stipendium og udstillet på Sepentine Gallery, London, Venedig Biennalen og Moderna Museet, Stockholm. Hanna Lidén har netop haft udstillinger på Maccarone, New York og Salon 94, New York.

Jonah Freeman U.S (1975) & Justin Lowe U.S (1976)

A Selection of Pharmaceutical Advertisements from the San San International (2011) er en hallucinatorisk uhyggelig informercial, på engang skræmmende og beroligende. Værket er et visuelt trip igennem New Age konsumerisme under indflydelse af det potente psykotrope stof Marasa – som på Haitiansk betyder de hellige voodoo tvillinger. Værket var i November 2011 del af Freeman og Lowe’s performance på The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA). Freeman og Lowe har modtaget anmelderros for deres store, stedspecifikke installationsmiljøer Black Acid Co-op, Hello Meth Lab in the Sun og Bright White Underground. Alle 3 værker omhandler, som det viste værk, stoffer og de forskellige miljøer, der knytter sig til forskellige stoffer.

Vi glæder os til at se dig.
