GRIPFACE - #EXPORTEDITEMS
exhibition 3. - 26.NOV 2017
opening: 2.NOV 2017 19h
where: Jan Arnold Gallery - MQ
curated by: Andeas Nader / printaffaires

The #Exporteditems project starts in the city of Amsterdam in 2016 and continues on the island of Mallorca in 2017. The back parts of urban displays - with an special emphasis on maritime signals of canals, ports or seas - are intervened in with a clear and specific intention: to show the face B of our society. The elements, forms and faces reflected in the interventions shape an imaginary world generated from the visual compilation of places and objects of the environment, as well as from the same contradictory society that they inhabit; a society that confronts its surroundings with two different faces. In his work, Grip Face relies on abstraction as a pictorial and conceptual resource, both in site-specific interventions and in object-based works. It maintains the bridge between public space and exhibition space, between the extra-legal and the illegal, always present in the work of the artist.

Gripface is a multidisciplinary artist from Mallorca with a certain background in the art world has spent some years building bridges between public and private space. He has done several projects and urban interventions all around Europe and he has done exhibitions in art centres as Hyvinkää Art Museum (Finland). Recently he has released his first book, Black Faces, an edition which compiles all the pieces from the namesake project he also showed at SC Gallery (Bilbao).

Currently he is artist in residence invited by Jan Arnold Gallery in cooperation with Q21 - part of the art complex MuseumsQuartier, Vienna.

Andrew Rinkhy - Duell in 6 Teilen

Vernissage: 
OKT 5, 19-22.00
Exhibition: 
OKT 6 - 29
Location: 
Jan Arnold Gallery

Eine Landschaft steht im Mittelpunkt. Sie ist uns vertraut, aber irgendwie auch fremd, ohne den Grund dafür gleich zu offenbaren. Darin stehen symbolträchtig ein Baum als ubiquitäres Zeichen der Verankerung aber auch der Veränderung, sowie ein Stein, der wiederum das Ewigwährende versinnbildlicht. In einer Gegenüberstellung kommunizieren die beiden oder duellieren sich. Während der Baum im natürlichen Wandel der Jahreszyklen der permanenten Veränderung ausgesetzt ist, zeigt der Stein deutliche Spuren menschlicher Manipulation, wenngleich er wie über Millionen von Jahren durch wetterbedingte Einflüsse zugeschliffen scheint.
Diesem Anachronismus sind auch die beiden Frauenfiguren unterworfen. In einem Barbarella-artigen Setting stehen sich die beiden bewaffneten Frauen gegenüber, fremd in der Landschaft und fremd in der Zeit. Während es doch eine zeitliche Abfolge zu geben scheint, nachvollziehbar durch den gezückten Revolver auf der einen Seite und die Schusswunde auf der anderen, vereinen sich doch beide Figuren in ein und der selben Person wieder. Verstärkt wird der Effekt durch vorgelagerte Bildtafeln, welche die Landschaft mit den beiden Frauenfiguren zeigen, während die dahinterliegende idente Landschaft keine Spuren menschlicher Anwesenheit vermuten lässt. Zudem wird dadurch auch die Fiktion des Geschehens offengelegt.
Die Gleichzeitigkeit der beiden möglichen Szenarien finden ihr Pendant auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite des Tryptichons in einer gespiegelten Darstellung einer Illusion. Der Spiegel an der linken Tafel verhält sich wie ein Fenster in eine weitere Dimension, der die Auflösung einer Szene widerspiegelt, von der man selbst nie Zeuge gewesen ist.

Lushsux is an artist from Melbourne, Australia, widely recognized for his large murals on the streets, walls and other structures. His work has been repeatedly characterized as provocative, confrontational and comical; offering shameless commentary on topics as well as prominent figures that are trending at this very moment. The Aussie writer is polarizing due to the fact that his work elicits a reaction that you either will feel strongly about or despise completely. It’s this burgeoning divide between allies and adversaries of his work that continue to spur the media’s attention and bring cognizance to his name. It also comes as no surprise why the world’s most famous (and most reclusive) artist Banksy enlisted Lushsux to be one of the participating artists for his ‘Dismaland, Bemusement Park‘ exhibition in 2015 in Weston Super Mare, England.

Numerous solo shows from 2010 to 2016, Melbourne, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam
