People are nowhere near so fluid

Sense & Sensibility 4: Janina Frye


People are nowhere near so fluid, 2017

December 16 – March 26

FINISSAGE MARCH 9th, 8 PM

What would the world be like if humanity were never to leave it, but instead stayed and merged with its materials? This new installation by Janina Frye is situated in the nearby-future, where the evolution of emancipation has taken place. Gender binaries are no longer a topic of discussion and oppositions between subjects have been eliminated. In this time and place, the border between objects and subjects has faded.

In this newly created total installation, concrete blocks, foam rubber, aluminium structures and neon-coloured plastic all bear resemblance toshapes of the human body. The sculptures move slightly, in an almost pre-reflexive way. They have skins, spines, joints, and are present in the space, having as much agency within our physical world as the traditional subject would. Familiar material structures, that we know from hospitals and public transport, play a major role in the vernacular of Frye’s post-human landscape. The human bodies leave stains and marks on concrete matter; and in its turn, a materiality guides and trains the human body and shapes the way it behaves inside space. Bones, handprints, and phone chargers all leave their traces, and both man-made artefacts as well as physical relics influence the world equally. The border between us and them—the ultimate dismantling of dualism, the perfect peak of dialectics—will be opaque.*

 

* The title of this exhibition has been derived from The Cyborg Manifesto, Donna Haraway (1984)

SENSE & SENSIBILITY

What a girl wants – what a girl needs
Various artists, designers and writers.


Logo design by Virginie Gauthier

 

FINISSAGE AND BOOK LAUNCH FRI. MARCH 9th, 8 pm

Total running time of the show is from April 2017 to 26 March 2018


A platform for various artists and writers, to explore contradictions and oppositions by reflecting upon gender issues, contemporary girlhood and object-subject relations. 
Featuring Mandy Roos, Gabriel Ann MaherOlle LundinJanina FryeVirginie Gauthier, Alicja Melzacka, Charlotte van Buylaere, Roberto Perez, Carly Rose, Daantje Bons, Camille Auer, Nasty Women and others. 

It’s because feminism has become a fashionable commodity now, that we’re in desperate need of a more inclusive and varied reflection on contemporary girlhood, cross-cultural feminism, and the relationship between gender, politics and philosophy. Sense and Sensbility wishes to explore oppositions and contradictions, in image and text, in theory and in visual modes of culture here and now. We try to make sense by getting together during changing situations, rather than define a status quo, and we try to be sensible, by embracing diversity within the interpretation of the theme.

WE ARE THE MARKET!

‘WE WANT INCLUSIVITY, AND WE ARE HERE TO TAKE IT!’
Various free-thinkers and free-doers.


 

FINISSAGE AND BOOK LAUNCH FRI. MARCH 9th, 8 pm

Total running time of the show is from April 2017 to 26 March 2018

The centre of the city is the place for meeting and consumption. It is where everyone goes, it’s where our culture is consumed and lived. However, the offering there is limited, and not a lot is allowed. It’s not everybody’s space, but the space of the majority. Yet even for that majority, there is no free choice, so it is also place for the silent majority. Meanwhile, every human being wants an inclusive culture, with free offering and free access. Although our culture turns out not to be free, but forced.
With this project we ask what could be on offer, and what perhaps ought to be? Many free-thinkers such as designers, philosophers, journalists, artists and others take space to explore this. In short: WE ARE THE MARKET! calls out to freedom in the capitalist commons, within the cultural production of the high street.

Public gallery and publisher Onomatopee Projects, organiser of this venture, has a space for free imagination in the heart of Eindhoven. Here they provide their services free of charge - partially paid for by the spokesperson of the people’s sovereignty - yet hidden behind all the commercial forces.

As an alternative, focused on a public service for the interest-less imagination which is exclusive to the arts, Onomatopee goes onto the streets in action against mollycoddling and in defence of an inclusive world: in an ultimate stimulation of possibility. They make the people question their role in our collective responsibility regarding public culture. Now the focus is on target audiences as life in bubbles alienates us, all the while public space is becoming increasingly more exclusive.

Our culture is our responsibility: we demand inclusivity!

DECEMBER 16, 19:00 - BOOK LAUNCH AND EXHIBITION OPENING

50-year-olds: they’re hung up in streets, stuck in dull, damp plastic sleeves; they are taped to lampposts, to electricity substations or traffic signs, or they’re attached to trees with drawing pins.

This publication and exhibition explore the typically Dutch tradition of publicly displaying home made photo collages throughout streets and neighborhoods in celebration of a person’s 50th birthday.

THE TRUE MEANING OF S.M.H.

Grete Johanne Neseblod


Care Jakke

February 3  – March 25 2018


S.M.H.  =


So Much Hate

Or

Shaking My Head


Dualism is an omnipresent theme in the life and work of Norwegian artist Grete Johanne Neseblod (1980, Trondheim, Norway), embodied by the contrasts between good and evil, art and music, and being a mother and an independent artist.  Evil and care, feminism and mothernism, anti-culture and the underground, misanthropy and life – all are seemingly opposite while continuously recurring as themes. As well as being a visual artist and a record shop owner, Grete is also the mother of three children. “There are obvious contrasts between being a mother of three children, an artist and running Neseblod Records. I recognise and understand these three cultures from both the inside and the outside, and I work to deconstruct the different roles”, says Neseblod.
