DIRK ZOETE - THE BE- PART EXERCISES

Written by Dirk Zoete
Together with isolated drawings and scalemodels, the The Be-Part Exercises can be seen as documents of the act of drawing in the midst of becoming. Zoete translated his drawings into theatrical sculptures, embodied by actors he photographed in filmic series, which he digitally edited and drew upon. The characters seem to be frozen in a re-enactment of the drawings they were based upon. Through repetition and difference, they show a rhythm of geometrical patterns in different constellations.Catalog Of An Exhibition Held At Be-part, Platform Voor Actuele Kunst, Waregem, February 28-may 29, 2016.

KUNIYOSHI-ISM: KUNIYOSHI UTAGAWA AND HIS LINEAGE NERIMA ART MUSEUM

Written by 加藤陽介
Naturally gifted ukiyoe artist Kiyoshi Utagawa took Edo by storm during the closing days of the Edo Era with his fantastic expressive power, playfulness, and preeminent abilities with a pen. Ukiyoe artists displayed a talent for staying well attuned to fads, but also keeping a watchful eye on social conditions at the same time. Theirs was an existence that truly drove an era. Kuniyoshi as well, made breakthroughs amongst limitations such as reforms and bans, and continued to paint. That spirit and splendor not only had a great influence on other artists at the time, but on all those to come as well.師匠「国芳」筆頭に「暁斎」「芳年」門人28名ずずいと勢揃い!!

SISSI - ANATO-MY LESSONS

Written by Sissi
Italian artist Sissi launches her artistic research from a recurrent and almost scientific analysis of the human body, borrowing elements from disciplines such as archaeology and anatomy, to reach an imaginative dimension capable of giving things new and unexpected forms and aspects. The method behind Parallel Anatomy, the art project that Sissi has been developing for years, is laid out in this artists book, which is read both in relation to her work and to that of the great anatomists who opened windows to the subcutaneous basement. It offers a way of speaking about emotions as intangible organs that, in order to take on a body, inhabit other organs and modify them.Di/by Sissi. Text In English And Italian. Sissi, Pseud. Of Daniela Olivieri (1977- ). Includes Bibliographical References. Text In Italian And English.
