A Sieve Itself May Sieve @ Shanaynay, Jul 30 – Aug 20

29 July 2016

The A Sieve Itself May Sieve group exhibition is on at Paris’ Shanaynay, opening July 30 and running to August 20.

Featuring work by Kelly Akashi, Talia Chetrit, William King, and Tori Wrånes, the show’s press release comes with a heavily allusive text referring to the sieve as both functional tool, and metaphor for the paradox of the disembodied space and dispersed networked environments: “…a device which concurrently isolates and integrates that which it sieves”.

Of those involved, the Norwegian Wrånes works with sculpture and performance, presenting a solo exhibition called Drastic Pants at London’s Carl Freedman Gallery earlier this year.

See the Shanaynay website for details.**

Tori Wrånes @ Carl Freedman Gallery, Feb 24 – Apr 2

23 February 2016

Tori Wrånes‘ solo exhibition Drastic Pants is on at London’s Carl Freedman Gallery, opening February 24 and running to April 2.

The Norwegian artist will open the presentation of sculptural work with a two-hour performance, which will most likely involve prosthetic make up and various props to deform appearance and soundscapes create new dreamlike configurations.

Past works have included ‘Stone and Singer’ (2014) where a person wears a mask with really big and permanently concerned eyes, lit up, centre stage, and ‘Track of Horns’ (2015) with long white haired people with big noses riding ski lifts playing horns and trumpets as they pass each other in the Italian Alps.
