BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS is an on-going collective enunciation initiated in Autumn 2019 which exhibition will be hosted in two mirroring spaces: ERGO Collective and Space 52, Athens. This collective practice deals with the historical trope of the individualisation of an author and architectonic forms of authorship engaging in creating modes of practice that reverse this traditional status. To develop into anonymity of a murmur, BAMBI WOODS PRESENTS attempts to re-codes and reverses these architectonic forms of authorship, where power play, proliferation of meaning and the ideological figure of a ‘present author’ shapeshift into nameless entities. This suggested new state of equilibrium, no longer refers to a singular subject but is rather designated to the subject’s cumulative space of vocation. B.W as a host, is a hybridised figure, scripted under the form of an inhabited dwelling where authorship is delegated into chains of commands and mechanical processes. Setting forward the blueprint of a show, B.W as a narrator – now evacuated by the author – is hosted throughout a constellation of ready-mades, performance, a radio station, an internet portal and photographic slides. It is no longer a manipulation of the real but a simulated situation, a potential/hypothetical scenario. Dealing with the phantom of wording, […]

The influential Viennese media artist Peter Kogler shows the installation EYES ONLY, for which he also uses a 3D LED fan for the first time. The artist, who participated in the documenta IX in Kassel in 1992, is internationally renowned for his computer animations, video projections, and illusionistic as well as real spatial labyrinths that animate and redefine architecture. Using computer-set, digitally printed paper webs and a projection generated by a 3D LED fan, Peter Kogler transforms the whole gallery space into a showcase of so much attraction. Curved lines along the walls, ceiling and floor strive towards a hologram-like, free-floating eye, which, like the human one, is constantly in slight motion. The overall picture appears like a modern icon, which triggers a wide range of associations in the viewer, ranging from the illusion of the private sphere, through the public Big Brother level to the meta-level of the divine eye.
Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]
