The irregularly published zine aims to “edit the identity of ecology from the point of view of art” by fostering discussions about the topic and pushing it into the radars of contemporary artists, writers and poets.
Drawing on installation, video and sculptural practices, Frech will interrogate the conflation of wireless technology, surveillance, communication and censorship. The artist has installed an electromagnetic pulse device (EMP) inside the gallery with the potential to be switched on at any time in order to create a space of complete radio silence.
Information on Lond0n-based Danish artist Myrup, on the other hand, comes in the form of a photo of a vulture overlaid with a clay tablet featuring the Nippur map, the oldest one ever found, as well as an image of an illuminated manuscript amended with the press release (see below). The piece that mimics The Book of Hours ends with the line, “I am Scavenger of Carcasses, Eater of the Past, living off of broken lives that may live once more.”
Yves Klein Archives are teaming up with New Galerie for a group exhibition called Plowing Solids and running at their Paris space from March 25 to April 8.
The show, curated by Copenhagen artist Rasmus Myrup (who is currently running the space Weekends) features Myrup along with five other artists for the second in a series of exhibition organised jointly by the Yves Klein Archives and the Paris gallery.
