ECOCORE IV @ The Art Market, Dec 18

17 December 2015

ECOCORE zine, edited by Alessandro Bava and Rasmus Myrup launches its fourth edition with party at The Art Markets on December 18.

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.

The party will be hosted by M¥SS KETA and will be accompanied by a listening party selected by Bava and contributing artist Jacopo Mazzetti. Other contributing artists include Harry Burke, Juliette Bonneviot and Katja Novitskova.

Derek Frech + Rasmus Myrup @ Interstate Projects, Nov 13 – Dec 20

12 November 2015

Derek Frech and Rasmus Myrup are presenting their respective exhibitions, Counter Measures and I, Scavenger of Carcasses at New York’s Interstate Projects, opening November 13 and running to December 20.

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.”

See the Interstate Projects website for details.**
