First Contact // Denis Olivier

comparing the artists thoughts on his first contact with photography as a child — onandon –

with his current works. njoy!

“My first encounter with photography took place when my parents performed some strange static dances with an object in front of their face. Later they would close themselves up in a special room under the house for long periods of time, and no one was allowed in.

They diligently made sure that they were left to their own devices while inside.

One day I was given permission to enter the room and allowed to stay, but on the condition that I didn’t move or went out.

yo..new artist discovery

FG on the go

~~

Keita Sagaki, todays artist, has a unique point of view for his drawings , no judgements made (even if we should), having in mind that the detailing of his work is exceptional. Short personal statement from his point of view [make your own adjustments]:

All things are composed of whole and part. Let’s broaden your horizons. the concept of “ whole and part” is not fixed. it’s in flux. If we interpret from a different viewpoint, the wholeness which we defined is converted into the partialness. Domain in the relations of both, it never ends. The concept of my creation is the relations of borderless “whole and part”. As I draw a picture in this concept, I want to express conflict and undulation from relations of “whole and part”, cannot be measured in addition and subtraction (The whole in the grand total of the part. and the Part by the whole division)

NEWS // Guggenheim Berlin closing !

“Guggenheim to Close Berlin Outpost”

After 15 years, Deutsche Guggenheim, an outpost of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in the headquarters of Deutsche Bank in Berlin, is closing at the end of the year.

The decision to end the partnership between the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Deutsche Bank was announced in Berlin on Monday morning. Neither the bank nor the Guggenheim gave a concrete reason for the decision, saying only that their contract expires at the end of 2012.

“Since 1997, when Deutsche Guggenheim was established under the leadership of Thomas Krens, its program has played an essential role in the development of contemporary art in Berlin,” Richard Armstrong, director of the Guggenheim Foundation, said in a statement. “Berlin today is a very different city from what it was when we began. We feel the time is right now to step back and re-examine our collaboration to see how it might evolve.’’

Over the years the Guggenheim has held 57 exhibitions and attracted 1.8 million visitors. It also commissioned 17 artists — among them John Baldessari, Anish Kapoor, Gerhard Richter and James Rosenquist — to create new works that were first shown at Deutsche Guggenheim.

The end of Deutsche Guggenheim does not signal an end to the Guggenheim’s international network of museums. It is awaiting the green light from the City Board and the City Council of Helsinki to embark on a new Guggenheim Museum in Finland; an announcement is expected in the next few weeks.
