Set up view – Picture Filippo Romano
“Right this moment, nature each heals us and threatens us. As we spend extra time than ever indoors taking a look at screens, neuroscientists reveal that point exterior is important to human well being and happiness. But, we’re weak to the storms, droughts, warmth waves, and freezes that outcome from local weather change. Human Nature is a sequence of photographic tales about how we depend on nature within the context of local weather change. Every story is about in a unique ecosystem: metropolis, forest, farm, desert, ice area, ocean, and lava circulate. The images look at our want for “wild” locations—even when these locations are human constructions.” – Lucas Foglia

SIMON LEHNER | I am a liar, however a great one
KOENIG2 – CHRISTINE KÖNIG GALERIE
Till 30 Jul 2021
“I’m a liar, however a great one”, Simon Lehner states. The title of his solo present at KOENIG2 includes questions of reminiscence, reality, trauma, authorship and creative manufacturing which are expressed in a lowered setting of 4 works. There isn’t any classical images to be seen; as a substitute, the wall objects and animations appear to be associated to portray. The supply materials of his works, anchored within the autobiographical – largely sure pictures from the artist’s childhood and youth – represent the inspiration of a inverted pictorial genesis. On this method Simon Lehner forges a working course of that arises out of the dialog between reminiscences and consciousness.
From the transformation of private picture archives into newly interpreted digital areas, he generates singular leitmotifs that manifest themselves as alter ego, petrol station, cave, desk or tv. These constellations of photos, all the time considerably various and mined from the archive, coalesce in numerous combos into two- or three-dimensional surfaces, in the end to be painted by a robotic. At each stage of the manufacturing course of, small lacunae emerge. On the one hand, these convey to the works a high quality that could be very near a painterly type. Then again algorithmic processes operate as prostheses of the artist’s mind-set; one may even ascribe to them a powerful similarity to human mechanisms of remembering. Right here arises that which the eponymous mendacity suggests: the act of portray, that’s no ‘real’ portray, is juxtaposed with the software program as a neurological pendant of remembering.
On the identical time, the elaborately produced works don’t come throughout as chilly, flat or mechanical. A humanely heat feeling evaporates, capturing our creativeness. That is as a result of earthy shade spectrum of the archival materials underlying the works, together with wood furnishings and flesh tones. The chronological dimension inside them, starting from the parental recording of an occasion of household life, as much as its creative processing, is thus not negated. The entire deadlines lie equally on prime and subsequent to one another, the degrees merge collectively, and equivalent to our recollection, with precise contemplation they change into timeless.

Del resto i costumi cambieranno molto
, Metronom, Modena, 2021.
In fluctuation between chance and data Del resto i costumi cambieranno molto – In spite of everything, the customs will change so much * is an invite to maneuver counting on the pleasure of the eyes and objects, which, as a result of magical, change their operate. Robert Lebel writes in response to questions from Brèton’s Artwork Magique, ‘a mirror discovered by likelihood at an public sale was sufficient to set off on the theme of doubling views that I had sought in different methods. The simplest defeats to our atrocious frequent sense are consumed in these fortuitous encounters. That is how magical artwork and the magic of artwork meet, to provide all the pieces that exists a extremely optionally available character.’
Ranging from this ‘extremely optionally available’ character of issues, Annabel Elgar recovers embroidery cloths that change into the background for her staged constructions; coherently with the artisanal manufacture of objects and parts of the scene, the design is on this new sequence of works declined utilizing the cross sew. Who’s represented by the masks, held by the lady from behind? Or who’s the mysterious determine in a bunny costume holding the 2 little ladies? At all times poised between recognition and creativeness, Elgar’s scenes, even when disadvantaged in these works of the magic of images, discover a necessary narrative dimension, disturbing and mysterious and on the identical time seductive.
