Throughout the meetings artists will have the opportunity to rehears their oral presentation skills, develop their writing, and research themes of their work through a contemporary art context.

Tangent Projects are very excited to be working with Lizette Nin on her upcoming exhibition WO. January 31st – February 28th, Tangent Projects gallery. Opening reception Friday 31st of January 19.30, all welcome. “WO is the dissolution of binarism – which did not exist until the whites and the church kidnapped, subdued and enslaved us. It is the journey through images sectioned into volumes, it is the sentimental map that I build in my mind, about the history of us, of everyone.” – Lizette Nin This exhibition is generously sponsored by The Ministry of Culture of the Dominican Republic.
Par des actions de va-et-vient du corps dessinant dans l’espace, au fil des marées et du traversier, Fanny H-Levy trace tout au long du mois de janvier les états successifs de ses passages.
On Friday 14 of February at the 20 hours Espai sant Marc will present works of the artist A.J.Ballester, focused on the graphic art, black and white, with clear influencies of the engraver Frans Masereel. A.J.Ballester always do his works at series, is a way that facilitates him that his work was coherent. These series always are the result of an intention, of something that really motivates him and that needs to express of a conclusive way. The titles of the last series at what A.J.Ballester has worked and works now give an idea about where is going his tematiques: “Depeculator Aerari”, “Relats de poder”, “El somni de l’amor produeix monstres”, “Un món feliç”. This last title could be for all them. Those works talks us always about a moral decomposition. With this title that recalls the famed novela of Aldous Huxley presents us a work that does a research at the darkest part of the human beings. Regarding the technics, one will see drawings of charcoal or ink and xylography. The xylography merit a comment aside for his expressive immediacy. The treatment of the dark and the clarity, with the half keys limited. The famed sentence of “less is […]
Descărnarea(RO) fleshing(ENG) is the process of cleaning the bones by successively removing the useless tissue layers. In the same way, the artist works with the realities of his own worlds through a metaphorical fleshing. He digs to find images and ideas that do not easily reach the surface of the psychic, in the superficial layers of the conscious. The works exhibited in “Descărnare”/”Fleshing” represent the testimonies of the search efforts. They took shape in the artist studio, after long hours of searches and flashing moments of inspiration. Curiosity and the need for introspection have led to the formal definition of the visible works now in the context of the space from the ETAJ modeled and reformed through the same process of fleshing. Digging deeper and further removing each layer of psychological tissue, one gradually reaches the hard core, the immutable center, the skeleton. Beyond the bone structure, things go into the abstract, becoming an infinite ocean of form and content, everything and nothing. Thus, the road ends are also a lifeline in front of the abysses. Although it does not always offer the expected reward, once the whole bone is cleansed, you only have the option to end it with […]
Quasi-fairytales as ordinary interior objects. Hand-drawn illustration based Textiles Print Design Exhibition near the Seonjeongneung park (Royal Tomb). ________________________ Once upon a time, There was a girl trapped in an enchanted forest. She walked, watching light shining through tall trees, beautiful, secluded and magical. She walked and walked, with no other human presence. She walked and walked and walked, saw wonderful mythical creatures crawling in and out the tree trunks, seek and hide in flowering bushes. She walked and walked and walked, heard them talking in undecodable languages to her ear. She walked and walked and walked and walked, in silence. She walked and walked and walked and walked and walked, in a beautiful evergreen enchanted forest. There once was a girl trapped in the enchanted forest. She walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and walked, became a woman but remained a girl. She walks and walks and walks and walks, just ever after. kimyo
