ADAM HELMS
PATHOS FORMULA

September 6 - October 29, 2013 / Brussels
Opening Friday September 6, 2-8 PM

La galerie Almine Rech a le plaisir d’annoncer la première exposition personnelle de Adam Helms en Belgique.

Le titre de l’exposition, "Pathos Formula", fait référence à l’historien de l’art allemand Aby Warburg. Ce dernier considérait sa "formule du pathos" comme une sorte de marquage visuel, une "anthropologie" des émotions de l’art antique. Dans cette exposition, Helms abordera des thèmes comme l’archivage et l’indexation en créant des groupes d’images et en explorant la manière dont leurs relations réciproques suscitent une impulsion narrative et un "pathos". Selon la stratégie de Helms, des images de différents types – tirées d’internet, de magazines ou de films, mais aussi des photographies trouvées, des cartes postales ainsi que des photographies prises par l’artiste lui-même – deviennent étranges et symboliques, la présence individuelle se trouvant décontextualisée. Le résultat est une quête instinctive de l’identification, de la reconnaissance et de la mémoire.

Adam Helms vit et travaille à New York. Il a reçu le "Rema Hort Mann Foundation Visual Grant Award" et le "Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award". Il a été artiste en résidence à la Chinati Foundation de Marfa, au Texas. Son œuvre a été exposée au Walker Art Center de Minneapolis, au Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art de Kansas City, au New Museum of Contemporary Art de New York, et aux Musées Solomon R. Guggenheim de New York et de Bilbao en Espagne. L’œuvre de Helms est incluse dans les collections du Walker Art Center, du Whitney Museum of American Art, du Musée Solomon R. Guggenheim et dans la Collection Dakis Joannou.

Almine Rech gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Adam Helms. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Belgium.

The title of the exhibition "Pathos Formula" is a reference to the German art historian Aby Warburg. Warburg thought of his pathos formula as sort of a visual marking, or "anthropology" of the emotion of the art of antiquity. In this exhibition, Helms will be approaching themes such as archiving and indexing by creating groups of images and exploring how their context to each other creates a narrative impulse and "pathos". In Helms’ strategy, images of various kinds–taken from the Internet, magazines, film stills, found photographs, postcards as well as the artist’s own photographs– become uncanny and symbolic de-contextualizing an individual’s presence; resulting in an instinctive search identification, recognition and memory.

Adam Helms lives and works in New York. He was a recipient of the "Rema Hort Mann Foundation Visual Grant Award", the "Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award" and was an artist in residence at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. His work has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and Bilbao, Spain. Helms’ work is included in the collections of the Walker Art Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Dakis Joannou Collection.
