Hands Over Heels at Art in General

Hand over Heels is a performance that takes over Art in General’s office to reflect on the experience of work within institutional structures. It stems from research the artist has conducted on our contemporary relationship to labor and its uncertainties, and asks: what norms must we conform to, however unstable, in order to get by? What kind of work do we want to do? How do we measure and define our capacities? Unfolding over the course of eight hours—the duration of a typical workday—performers recite excerpts from cover letters and psychosocial questionnaires relating to unpaid internships. Meanwhile, a giant pair of hands inflates and deflates under the performer-workers’ supervision, simultaneously affirming and questioning our dominant labor systems today.

The performance is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Danilo Correale: At Work’s End, which imagines a future without work.

Barbora Kleinhamplová lives and works in Prague. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Prague and was the recipient of the 2015 Jindich Chalupecký Award. Recent solo exhibitions and performances include Mpeg Girl, Jeleni Gallery, Prague (2016); Meeting Expectations, 209, Brno; and Sleepers’ Manifesto, Armaturka, Ústí nad Labem (both 2014).

Empathicity - It’s Happening!

Empathicity - It’s Happening!

Based on Shani Ha's public art sculptures “Empathicity” the artist created a series of outdoor pieces that subtly adapt to the public space to bring touches of softness and comfort. These discreet mysterious pieces could be displayed in various areas in dialogue with other works.

HAM, high art moment is a collaboration between Amélie Gaulier-Brody, Dages Juvelier Keates, Rain Saukas and Alexis Steeves. They will activate the sculptures  to explore the relationship between the toughness of the city, the softness of the invading sculptures.

 

The non intrusive temporary installation would dialogue with other pieces as the public can spontaneously “use” them as comfort sculptures while viewing other performances and sculptures of “It’s Happening”. Shani Ha's ephemeral sculptures become functional and disappear behind the body to make it more comfortable and aware of its surrounding. The relationship to these pieces becomes purely sensorial and tactile as the public can simultaneously visually encounter the work of other pieces of "It's Happening".

Body-Mind Centering Workshop
Oct

3:00 PM15:00

Body-Mind Centering Workshop

ENLIVEN YOUR HEART 

A 3 hours workshop to discover how to embody the heart as an organ and its specificity through breathing, self touch, sounding and opening our attention to what moves us. My body-Mind Centering® approach focuses on accessing and dialoguing with different layers of body systems in order to help you to access the world of the sensations, to refine your feelings and find an ease through movement.

In this specific workshop we’ll get closer to our heart and understand how we connect to it at a psycho-physical level and beyond. As we’ll feel how the flow of our blood nurtures our full body we’ll allow the flow of our creativity to arise. Noticing how we sense and feel the different qualities of the circulation of the liquids related to the heart, we'll explore different ways to move through space and being move from within. First we’ll experience others liquid system of our body as a cellular level to earth the body and converse with gravity. Sitting or lying in silence, becoming our inner witness, we will allow ourselves to be nourished and refreshed. We’ll bring sounding and learn simple hands-on practice with partners to deepen our connection to our heart and its connections with other body systems. After seeing anatomy map of the heart, writing and drawing from and moving with our sensations, our imaginations will lead us to a fluid creative journey. The openness of our mind informs and impacts the vitality of our body.

“Body-Mind Centering® (BMCsm) is an ongoing, experiential journey into the alive and changing territory of the body. The explorer is the mind – our thoughts, feeling, energy, soul and spirit. Thought this journey we are led to an understanding of how the mind is expressed thought the body in movement”

"Our body moves as our mind moves. The qualities of any movement are a manifestation of how mind is expressing through the body at the moment. Changes in movement qualities indicate that the mind has shifted focus in the body. Conversely, when we direct the mind or attention to different areas of the body and initiate movement from those areas, we change the quality of our movement. So we find that movement can be a way to observe the expression of mind through the body, and it can also be a way to affect changes in the body-mind relationship."

The Neo Domestic Performance Art Festival

The Neo Domestic Performance Art Festival

 

UNSEE is an invitation to perceive what's known anew. Throughout the duration of this 3-4 hour performance the audience is guided to an indirect and temporary investment of a personal object or piece of clothing. These volunteered materials will be continuously combined and converted into wearable sculptures by ntilit. HAM will activate, inhabit and embody each fresh piece, folding it into, and eventually out of, the performance. Four dancers and one artist-designer - proposing, finding, fumbling, stating, entangling and unraveling what is seen and re-seen. By engaging and intriguing notions of what's private and what's shared this performance offers unexpected recognition. Responsibility, expression, intimacy and irreverence are all at stake as the personal transitions to the collective and back again. The experience and investment of both performer and audience is infinitely unfolding - making space and time for new ways of seeing, embodying and being within the haptic world we cohabitate.

HAM (high art moment) is a collaboration between Amélie Gaulier-Brody, Dages Juvelier Keates, Rain Saukas and Alexis Steeves. Our collective projects have been inspired by a commitment to performance as a visual art form. We have asked “How can we both invite and return the gaze while also expressing our own sight / sightedness as performers? How can we better author the visual representation of our bodies?” Through a number of explorations we have discovered the most nourishing moments when we are in dialogue with spaces, galleries, sculptures - the visions of other visual artists. In other words, contexts which offer our own gaze a rich world of possibilities. In turn we are able to converse, merge, expand, explode and alter the ‘frame’ with which we are dancing.

ntilit was founded in 2010 by Natalia Roumelioti, and is a project based design studio dedicated to a passion for creating wearable sculptures and mixed media installations with focus on the intermediate space between the body and the surroundings. ntilit's mission is to create versatile crafted sculptures with a potential of a performative experience in the space. Ntilit's exploration of different materials and techniques is constantly evolving, while challenging preconceived ideas of “body to space”, interaction and welcoming an unprecedented ritual of the senses. The metaphor throughout the work of ntilit tends to be a transformation of preconditioned ways of perception into anew. It is a process of gaining new trust on what “might be”, after an otherwise perceived reality is flipped or tweaked.

Coherently Incoherent Closing Event

  • Hunter East Harlem Gallery, The Silberman School of Social Work (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

An absurd dialogue between Amélie Gaulier and Yana Dimitrova about and around the irregularity of the French vocabulary with a pinch of dramatic fantasy.

The Incoherents Salon
A Mise-en-scène by Pablo Helguera and Dannielle Tegeder

 

Organized by Arden Sherman, Curator, Hunter East Harlem Gallery 

Hunter East Harlem Gallery launches The Incohérents Salon, a mise-en-scène produced by the artists Pablo Helguera and Dannielle Tegeder inspired by the protomodern French artistic movement, Les Arts Incohérents.

Founded by publisher and writer Jules Lévy in Paris in 1882, The Incoherents were a collective made up of artists and writers who organized humorous exhibitions as a satirical response to the aesthetic and political circumstances of the time. In the midst of our current restless political moment, Helguera and Tegeder’s theatrical mise-en-scène offers a tribute to a group of artists that used satire as a weapon to push against the status quo and embodied a critical spirit that would later become a common denominator of the avant-garde.

For over ten years (1882-1895), The Incohérents took up a format of a hybrid cabaret and salon, and the happenings of the group fell somewhere between free artistic expression and public entertainment. Artworks created by the group were parodies of famous pieces of art, political and social satire, costume balls, graphical puns, and monographic paintings directly mocking the Impressionists. Cleverly curated locations contributed to the success of these humorous exhibition-demonstrations and were meant to rebel against the seriousness and boredom of popular events and popular sentiments of the time. Additionally, The Incoherents self-published catalogues, fictional artist statements, and created well-orchestrated advertising campaigns using newspapers, flyers, and personal invitations to promote their happenings—they even donated proceeds from their admission fees to charity. De-professionalization was one of the major characteristics of The Incoherents, whereby painters might take up writing, exhibitions of drawing would be launched by those who couldn’t draw, and architects might become financial analysts. Absurdity and provocation were the driving mission of the group.

Moreover, Les Arts Incohérents introduced the usefulness of satire, humor, and political provocation within cultural production, acting as precursors to the avant-garde cabarets of the early 20th century and the performative interventions of Surrealism and Dada, and could be said were early influencers to movements like Fluxus. Their theaters of conversation and exchange, or cabarets, played a critical role in the emergence of what philosopher Jürgen Habermas termed the, “public sphere” which emerged in “cultural-political contras” to court society.

With this history in mind, Helguera and Tegeder consider Hunter East Harlem Gallery, where socially minded art projects are on display, as a site for a revistitation of the experimentation and elements of Les Arts Incohérents. From March 13 to June 3, 2017, Helguera, Tegeder, and Hunter East Harlem Gallery invite artists, community members, and creatives into the gallery to present time-based projects that embrace The Incoherents‘ commitment to social engagement and community-oriented exhibition-making.

This exhibition is made possible by the Goldberg Fund in support of the Curatorial Certificate program at Hunter College.

Embody_MAD Museum of Arts and Design
May
25
6:00 PM18:00

Embody_MAD Museum of Arts and Design

A ongoing collaboration with the visual artist Shani Ha and her project EMBODY. The sculptures from the “Embody” series play with abstraction and metamorphose to incarnate complex shifting identities and interactions.

Organized in response to MAD’s exhibition fashion after Fashion, this two-hour durational performance program features new works by interdisciplinary artists, designers, and dancers whose projects navigate the intersections of fashion, sculpture, installation, and performance.

New works by Shani Ha, the duo of Chris Habana and Vincent Tiley, and Jade Yumang will be installed and activated by the artists and dancers on MAD’s seventh floor and within the Museum’s lobby. Inspired by the curatorial premise that the field of fashion today goes beyond the traditional constellation of runway shows and commoditiesto encompass an expanded set of conceptual projects and display strategies, these works investigate a deeper connection between the body, identity, and garments that can only be conveyed through the pairing of material and movement.

Presenting the intimate actions of getting dressed, personal transformation, and self-styling within the public space of the Museum, each performance will explore the role fashion plays in crafting identity and establishing interpersonal connections.

Shani Ha’s work will be performed by Mathilde Chapellière, Caroline Darty, Amélie Gaulier-Brody, Alycia Perrin-Rodriguez. The production of Shani Ha’s new sculptures is made possible thanks to a generous donation from Fairfield World.

Jade Yumang’s work will be performed by Alvaro Gonzalez Dupuy and Sara Jimenez.

Chris Habana and Vincent Tiley’s work will be performed by Jerome AB, Forrest Wu, and Ash Yergens.

Kinetic Intimacies is co-curated by Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy, Curatorial Assistant and Project Manager, and Danny Orendorff, Manager of Public and Community Engagement Programs for the MAD Education Department.

Shani Ha’s practice questions identity, otherness, and togetherness through multiple mediums and at different scales. Her sculptural forms question social practices and representations through their relationship to intimacy, conviviality, and otherness. Her sculptures can be activated through experimentation, appropriation, and performance, either spontaneously or following a scenario. Metamorphosis, transformation, and collaboration are key to her practice. Ha, who is French Algerian, was born in Paris. She obtained her MFA in France in 2012, then moved to Brooklyn, New York, where she currently lives and works. Her work has been shown at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Caen; La FAI-AR, Marseille, for Marseille-Provence 2013; Journées du Patrimoine, Marseille; Parc de l’Hôtel de Ville de Fontenay-Sous-Bois; ESBA Le Mans; International Week of Architecture, Le Mans; Académie des Beaux-Arts, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo; Kunsthalle Detroit; ArtHelix; and Eyebeam on Governors Island.

Am I An Image Moving#7 at Dixon Theater

It is the art of talking about something by referring to something else. You see something that moves and you wonder what is this unidentified  object that speaks to your dizzy senses. This may well look like a concert of silence, a roar of sound textures. You gently distinguish some forms, not knowing what moves between your vision and your hearing. Welcome to the boudoir of the roaring insconscient.

Collaborators:  Shani Ha for the "Embody sculptures" (to confirm)

School tours of HERVÉ TULLET's exhibit "This Isn’t Trash" will be organized over the course of its run, guided by teaching artist Amélie Gaulier-Brody, who was trained by Tullet.

Wildly imaginative artist Hervé Tullet—known for his beloved children’s book Press Here—presents his first-ever exhibition in New York This Isn’t Trash.

He will fill The Invisible Dog Art Center with hundreds of new pieces, some as tall as 8 feet, created at his studio in Harlem and onsite. Colorfully painted, torn, taped, creased and reassembled sheets of paper will be hung from the ceiling. Together, they will assemble into a layered, multi-dimensional forest of artworks. Visitors will meander through, encountering new viewpoints, windows, and surprise compositions.

Embody at Radiator Gallery

Shani Ha and Amélie Gaulier-Brody
Sunday, December 11th, 5pm at Radiator Gallery
Duration of Performance: approx. 20 mins .

The “Embody” series play with abstraction and metamorphose to incarnate complex shifting identities and interactions. Performed since 2011, the Embody blurs the boundaries between sculpture, bodies and representation. For this iteration Shani Ha invited performance artist Amélie Gaulier-Brody to invest and interpret Embody.

This series of sculpture is the catalysis for photographs, installations and performances. Shani Ha invites the audience, performers and dancers to interact with the piece and invest them in different situations.

The soft sculptures are constantly shifting and adapting to the context and silhouettes, creating successive ephemeral sculptural forms. Embody exists in different temporality and formats, the sculptures can be contemplated steady, in action or be activated.

About the exhibition Neither Here Nor There
Nov 18th, 2016 – Jan 20th, 2017

Featuring works by:
Anne Mourier, Fanny Allié, Jeanne Verdoux, Julien Gardair
Marilia Destot, Nicolas Touron, Shani Ha, Simon Courchel

Curated by: Nicolas Touron / Fanny Allié

The exhibition Neither Here Nor There presents the works of eight artists who all share the same birthplace – France and who voluntarily migrated several years ago to New York City.

Not quite from one side or the other anymore, a nonnative constantly oscillates between two realities, fully belonging to none. Through mixed media, sculpture, photography and painting, the artists of Neither Here Nor There examine this state of being slightly “out of tune” and how their experience may have impacted their work over the years. The exhibit also aims to highlight a common thread between all the works - a feeling of detachment of the human figure from its urban environment, within a context of personal narration and a touch of absurdity. The sense of isolation and fragmentation that can emanate from the works is nonetheless often counterbalanced with whimsicality and humor.

In her series Gowanus Dance, Marilia Destot isolates and places her model in a cinematic or sequence form, her photographic work focusing on the intimate writing of time and space intermingled. Exploring the same medium, Simon Courchel creates in each of his photographs an urban choreography or performance thus referencing his background as a dancer; the figure being always insulated and centered within the frame. In Anne Mourier’s small sculptures depicting domestic scenes, the figure is removed all together but constantly in mind, like a ghostly presence, only the habitat remains. Nicolas Touron’s ceramic and video installation Artificial Landscape is a visual fable, existing as a landscape of absurdity in which a dead cicada found at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens during his numerous explorations there, plays the main character. 

Jeanne Verdoux’s prints show the human figure deprived from any context but in constant motion, sometimes in the verge of falling, where ground and air merge into one dimension. Fanny Allié’s characters, often placed on a white background are also removed from their habitat or environment; their urban feel come through nonetheless. In his Artforum mashup series, Julien Gardair combines and cuts Artforum advertisement pages, revealing from these art magazines human silhouettes intermingling with animals, body and abstract elements and creating a chaotic mass. Lastly, in order to remedy the isolation she may find in fast-paced cities, Shani Ha creates versatile sculptures and devices in an effort to bring people together or to add a comforting touch to her surrounding.

Am I An Image Moving at Chez Bushwick

 

 I'm happy to invite you to my solo research presentation Am I An Image Moving January  27th  at 7:30 pm at Chez Buschwick

Chez Bushwick's WIP Showings are free and open to the public! 4 artists will showtheir works in progress. A guest moderator will initiate the dialogue, questions and feed-backs after the showings with the public and the artists.

 

Am I An Image Moving

The notions of indeterminacy and improvisation, and the place they give to the random and the unfinished, compose the framework for my choreographic investigations. The way I work is a process of constant sliding and of making incongruous connections, reflecting the random path navigation of my thought-movement.

Dance as a shelter. Dance as a transition. Dance as an opening space. Dance as an image moving. Dance as a hearing. Dance as a ghost alive. Dance as a cavern. Where does imagination come from? What part of imagination do I carry with my spiritual-macrobiotoique- cellular-atomic-anatomic-ordinary-physical body? If I produce sound with my breath and start to produce sounds with my mouth, tongue, lips, velum, cheeks, teeth, throat, vocals cords, could I make choreographic art? I mean could I create a dance from the breath-sounds moving inside my body-cavern and be moved by this invisible material—as my thoughts—and call this a dance?

Using the creatures in the Le bestiaire exhibition as inspiration, these workshops encourage children to imagine their own creature on a blank costume. Devised by graphic designer Amélie Doistau and illustrator Tomoë Sugira, this design laboratory is inspired by the forms, colors, and patterns of existing animals. Once all the animal reveries are down on paper, the carnival can begin. The beasts are unleashed! They roar, sing, meow, growl… Fly, swim, run, jump, and pounce.

Am I An Image Moving #5 at Queens Museum / ITINERANT Art Festival

Am I An Image Moving #5 investigates how the body produces sounds and how these sounds refer to memories which are recorded on the hard drive of humanity across its evolution. What is the nature of human interaction? How can the beginning of human consciousness, with movement and sound as vectors, be replayed across time and space?

At Queens Museum / Flushing Meadows Corona Park, NYC

ITINERANT Performance Art Festival in NYC is curated by Hector Canonge

Reversible Skirt at Glasshouse / ’Forms of Repetition'

Reversible Skirt at Glasshouse / ’Forms of Repetition'

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 7-11PM

at Glasshouse / 246 Union Ave, Brooklyn, 11211

Reversible Skirt  was created for the exhibition Notes On Performance ,  The  E MOTION AL  Architecture of the Body curated by FrancesZ. Cooper in July 2015 at Song For Presidents Gallery. The performance explores the ritualistic aspect of a 5-minute gesture. The action starts with the production of vocalizations and finishes by covering the upper body with the skirt. Like the image of an hourglass timer, the core of the inverted action is non-timed but the intention of the gesture, rooted in the resonance of the sonorous body, measures the cyclic length of time between the first image and the last. 

’Forms of Repetition' is an evening dedicated to durationality in performance making. The entire space of Glasshouse will be transformed into a pulsation of repeated action. Unlike theater, music and dance visual performances are almost never rehearsed. They occur and exist in real time. Repetition allows performance the space to explore itself while in the making, allows it to be a process of revelation rather than a familiar choreography. Hosted by Lital Dotan & Eyal Perry. $FREE
