Munich; Jessica Warboys “Neap Tide” at Kunstverein’s Schaufenster am Hofgarten

Berlin and Suffolk-based artist Jessica Warboys elaborates that ‘painting is a wet medium’ with her ongoing series of Sea Paintings.  Last night preview opening  at kunstverein Munich (k.m) for the ‘Schaufenster’ at  Hofgarten she  created  a new piece “Neap Tide” where she developed a new display apparatus for her Sea Paintings, which alludes to photo-cinematic moving panoramas and the loops of film stock.

Jessica Warboys ‘Neap Tide’ 10 May -June 26, 2016

The mechanism will be turned incrementally, without advanced notice, generating a new rhythm distinct from the temporality of her initial process. The effect is a wave of painterly information that proceeds over time, a picture that is always imperceptibly changing like the crystal flow of tides.

Jessica Warboys  journeyed to the seashore to produce this work during ‘neap tide’a semi-monthly interval where the difference between high and low tide is at its least.  Relinquishing her aesthetic control to the movements of the sea, the Sea Paintings also register the specific place and time of their manufacture. They function a sort of implicit cinema. 

‘She lays large sheets of canvas on the beach, applies pigment to their sea soaked surfaces, and then casts the canvases  back out to sea. While seemingly  abstract, the images that result record the intimate and transitory interaction of her own movements with the confluence of the canvas surface, the pigment, and the tendencies and flows of the waves, wind, salt, and sand.'(k.m press)

Buketai is the name for the work of sisters Aurime and Igne Aleksandraviciute. As ’flower curators’, they  design a series of arrangements of plants in response to the exhibitions at Kunstverein München.

Following the opening, Warboys and artist and musician Morten Norbye Halvorsen presented  a sound performance and DJ set in the foyer of k.m  that further accentuates the looped logic of Warboys’ exhibition.

Yesterday afternoon, a walk through of the exhibition ‘Sudoku’ at Munchen Kunstverein by its director Chris Fitzpatrick.

From 4 July until 6 September 2015, Kunstverein München presents ‘Sudoku’ — an exhibition by Gintaras Didžiapetris, Renée Levi, and Rosalind Nashashibi.

The exhibition is titled after  a popular Japanese puzzle ‘Sudoku’ which deductive logic is used to fill a concentric grid of squares with the numbers 1 through 9 in correct locations. Each artist has used the puzzle’s restrictive rules as a productive system for responsively creating new individual work, re-presenting existing work in new ways, and exhibiting it all within a collective installation that is both symbiotic and parasitic.  (k.m press handout, edition of 1250 copies)

Nearly 50 works were produced individually, but the resulting exhibition is a more collective affair, which is fitting since the artists have become increasingly entangled over the years. Levi made a series of paintings in response to a film by Nashashibi, who later filmed Levi painting with a mop in her Basel studio. Likewise, Didžiapetris and Nashashibi continue to influence each other’s practices. Through Sudoku the artists’ entanglement is pulled even tighter, into a knot, through which their individual approaches are even more visible. (k.m press)
