Maren Juell Kristensen in Liverpool Biennial Independents and NICE08

VOYEUR member Maren Juell Kristensen represents Norway with ART WILL ABSOLVE ME in FIVE NORDIC WOMEN at NOVAS CUC, Greenland Street, Liverpool, UK

The exhibition is a part of Liverpool Biennial Independents and NICE08. The exhibition is up during the whole period of the biennial: 20 September - 30 November 2008. Sponsored by The Norwegian Embassy.



Maren Juell Kristensen's work is concerned with the expectation of meaning and the wish for fulfilment and purpose. She frequently uses video, both as a device for storytelling and as a physical presence of light where the dramaturgical and material composition of the video is an essential part of the concept. The recurrent, familiar and repeating narratives in mass media and popular culture are used for their symbolic and emotive values. Often within a pictorial language and directness borrowed from other media. With the exhibition Art Will Absolve Me Maren Juell Kristensen’s works revolves around ‘doing the right thing’ and what happens when something terrible becomes neutralised, or even beautiful from a far away perspective. With references to Nietzsche’s Beyond good and evil and Susan Sontag’s Regarding the pains of others, Maren Juell Kristensen wants to approach this at a multiple angle with an underlying naive search for meaningfulness which also questions the value of the art object and purpose of art in this context. The exhibition consists of 4 video pieces and 4 watercolour series, where the installation and objectification is as important as the content.

Barbara Agreste in Chicago USA

VOYEUR member Barbara Agreste will have video work in the following show

Animation Digital Antidotes



Curated by LiveBox

Animation has moved to the center of our moving-image culture. America’s children spend more time engaging anime and avatars than they watch network TV. Animated formats compete with main line cinema, and new media artists commonly utilize and manipulate animation processes in their projects. A proliferation of easy to use animation software such as Flash has introduced animation to artists. Digital animation processes now used by artists encompasses a fast array of approaches, from simple tools to industrial software used to create the latest Pixar blockbuster.
Digital Antidotes is a selection of video art that is digitally animated.

exhibting artists: Barbara Agreste - Robbyn Alexander - Carl Burton - Michael Greathouse - Bradley Hyppa - Kazuhiko Kobayashi - Aleksander Kostjuk - Hillary Mushkin - Orit Ben Shitut - Jessica Westbrook

Around the Coyote, as a cultural partner of The Artist Project at Artropolis, brings you the Around the Coyote Video Lounge curated by LiveBox. ARTropolis is Chicago’s citywide celebration of arts, antiques and culture. The Video Lounge will open for the preview celebrations on April 24th, and run concurrently with Art Chicago through April 28, 2008.

Since the rise of You Tube and the use of video as a communication language, there has been talk about the death of video art. For many it is becoming increasing difficult to access the artistic quality of video art when the format represents entertainment and cheap reproduction. Very recently though, there has been talk of Video as “New.” New York times critic Holland Cotter wrote in January 2008, “At present it is shaped by a combination of pop fantasy, ingrained cybersmarts, neo tribalism and the angst-free take on contemporary life that marks attention-deficient internet culture.” Cotter was talking about a collection of rising video artists who were creating stunning original video. You Tube habitation and the like had liberated these artists to create fearless work. The ARTropolis Video Lounge is a celebration of video as a seminal medium for young artists today.

Utopia of Space: Post for Kyrgyzstan
Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts, Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republik

Curated by Latitia Norkeit and Maxim Neroda

How does one bring international art into a country which does not have the financial means required to organize an international exhibition? Latitia Norkeit and Maxim Neroda, two artists from Germany who currently live and work in Bishkek, met this challenge by creating a project in cooperation with the Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts, giving it the provocative title “Post for Kyrgyzstan.” For the past few months, packages have been arriving at the museum from artists all over the world. The exhibition will give visitors access to a wide variety of contemporary art otherwise not available, and also show that art does not necessarily involve expensive materials and immense effort. Plans are underway for a new incarnation of the exhibition in Nürnberg and Berlin.

Erica Eyres at Rokeby Gallery in London

Erica Eyres is interested in the human condition; through her drawings and videos she examines human nature, how we perceive others, how others perceive us and how we portray ourselves to others.

The disquieting female characters that Eyres depicts in stark ballpoint pen, self-consciously pose for the viewer awkwardly, clumsy, vulnerable and bashful; their flaws and blemishes openly on display whether in states of undress, or contrived sexual poses. In each instance the viewer is persuaded to engage in the power games instigated in watching and being watched though the experience is never wholly satisfying. Rather, through identification with the character, one is left with a sense of fracture, conscious of ones own flaws and deficiencies. As described in theories of The Uncanny, the viewer at once experiences both the familiar and the unfamiliar resulting in a sensation of cognitive dissonance whereby one simultaneously feels empathy and revulsion.

Similarly, in her videos, Eyres often borrows from the aesthetic and artificiality of low budget television or film. The addition of a psychological intricacy results in incongruous reactions in viewers who express both repulsion and compassion towards the characters portrayed. In her video’s Eyres is the actor who subjects herself to the scrutiny of the viewer, however it is the viewers scrutiny of their own self-image that is reflected in her struggling characters; we recognise the fact that this self-image is not necessarily the same as that in which others perceive us.

The artist’s videos and drawings are equally, and sometimes grotesquely, contrived; characteristics are exaggerated and physical attributes amplified in such a manner that the viewer is surprised to be led to any truth concerning human nature. Such is the insight and honesty that Eyres reveals.
