Jochen Gerz, Inauguration of the Square of the European Promise, Bochum, Germany Jochen Gerz, Inauguration of the Square of the European Promise, Bochum, Germany
11 December 2015

“Just like the stars give their light to the night,
people give their promises to the future.”

(Jochen Gerz)

An artwork by many and a central site for the European idea – in 2004 the citizens of Bochum in the Ruhr-area of Germany first followed the invitation of internationally renowned artist Jochen Gerz and gave a promise to Europe. Everyone kept their promise to themselves, but the names of those who pledged were inscribed into the ground of a new square – the Square of the European Promise.

GALERIA LEME, São Paulo presents ZILVINAS KEMPINAS Image: Zilvinas Kempinas
17 November, 2015 - 9 January, 2016

Verticals is an installation of unspooled VHS tape, constituting the entire gallery space, evenly dividing and filling it symmetrically. It is a controlled environment, defined by uniformity and monotonous order. Despite its geometry, Verticals sustains a kinetic character and occasionally is animated by natural air circulation in the gallery or by vortexes of air caused by passing visitors. Once the air calms down, the piece comes back to its original stance.

Galerie Isabelle Gounod, Paris presents ERIC RONDEPIERRE Eric Rondepierre, DSL 27, 2015
31 October - 19 December, 2015

The series of photographs by Eric Rondepierre called “DSL” offers us images whose process is not unlike some previous series by the artist. Except that “ DSL deformations,” according to Etienne Hatt2, “are no longer alterations of film material as in Précis de décomposition (1993-1995) or Moires (1996-1998), but glitches, brief disruptions of the digital stream. Images are frozen or collide, forms distend or blur.

Union Gallery, London presents JAMES HOPKINS James Hopkins, The Mirror’s Mirror, Installation shot, Union Gallery
11 September - 28 November, 2015

James Hopkins typically effects a double shift through the poetry of objects. First, we wonder at a contradiction achieved. How is it that one thing is turned to its opposite – black into white, heavy into light, word into antonym, abstraction into representation? The puzzle provides an instant diversion, and the answers - double reflection, magnetism, tricks of balance, anamorphosis - are interesting in themselves. But then comes the second shift: what does the paradox and deception tell us about the world?

RESOURCE EXTRACTION CORP Resource Extraction Corp, Showroom, 2015

Resource Extraction Corp is a web-based, conceptual art project. It is an investigation and reflection upon the notions of commerce, art as commodity, the rhetoric of philosophical language, the absurd and humor. It is a realization of the shifting methods by which a viewer relates to and interacts with art within the media; how the mass viewing of art work is realized on-line, the digital realm. This project is non-specific in location, time and person and is in perpetual development.

Galerie Christian Lethert, Cologne presents
GEREON KREBBER Installation view, Galerie Christian Lethert, Cologne, Image: Simon Vogel, Cologne 30 October - 19 December, 2015

Have you just entered a gallery or are you in the midst of a circus stage? Will the molecule-like construction start rotating or will one of Krebber’s other objects come alive in the next minutes and jump through these rings? Curiosity and horror, repulsion and attraction, the physical and the fantastic intermingle in the room. Lurking in the background is a subtle, tension-filled disturbance - as if something “un-dead” might come to life immediately.
