Nilbar Güres: Overhead

LENTOS Kunstmuseum Linz, 15.06.–10.09.2018

Nilbar Güres: Overhead

Nilbar Güres, BA ÜSTÜ TrabZONE SER S ’nden / OVERHEAD from the Ş İ İ TrabZONE SERIES, 2010

What is fascinating about Nilbar Güreş’s art is the unique poetic and humorous inventiveness that always also has a critical and political underside. In her photographs, collages, objects and videos, Güreş explores clichés of the social visibility of women in different cultural fields, whether in Turkey, her country of origin, or in Brazil. She sketches out and stages humorously challenging counter-images and -figures, in which she subverts conventional role attributions. At the same time, she subtly brings into play the defensive attitude of western society toward the dress codes of cultures influenced by religion. Her pictures and objects evince a high degree of sensuous materiality, are strangely puzzling, often charged with eroticism, and lead into a multifaceted, contradictory reality that prompts reflection. The retrospective is comprised of works dating to the period between 2006 and today and includes four productions created especially for [...]

Nilbar Güres: LESBIAN VISIONS

Schwules Museum Berlin, 10.05.–20.08.2018

Nilbar Güres: LESBIAN VISIONS

Nilbar Güres, Spider Woman;Mother, 2006

The exhibition LESBIAN VISIONS brings into view artistic positions by queer FLTI* (females, lesbians, trans, inter) from over 100 years and displays works by more than 30 artists across six generations. As part of the annual theme Year of the Women* the Schwules Museum undertakes a first attempt to acknowledge these artists and their work. We present a “hidden museum” of queer art from a perspective beyond hegemonic masculinity: a milestone, not only for the “Gay” Museum, whose foundation originated in the exhibition Eldorado. Homosexuelle Frauen und Männer in Berlin 1850–1950 (Eldorado. Homosexual Women and Men in Berlin 1850–1950).

LESBIAN VISIONS references legendary exhibition projects by feminist cultural activists, for instance Künstlerinnen International 1877–1977 (Female Artists International 1877–1977) in (West) Berlin, in 1977, initiated by Ursula Bierther, Evelyn Kuwertz, and Sara Schumann, amongst others. [...]

Adrien Tirtiaux: Fragments of Infinity

mariondecannière, 29.04.–27.05.2018

Adrien Tirtiaux: Fragments of Infinity

In his works, Adrien Tirtiaux searches for the (im)possibilities of construction. Often, these are – theoretical or practical– transboundary architectural interferences that take away the obvious or introduce the peculiar. The form is usually purely functional, the appearance determined by a careful configuration of raw building materials. The works furthermore originate in a convergence of a number of associations, layering meaning on several levels.

Tirtiaux simultaneously expresses the potential and inability of construction (and with it our imagination). That this ironic character may be interpreted humorously, is apparent from the artist's regular reference to Belgian comic culture.

In 'Fragments of Infinity' the artist emphasizes an endlessness within these architectural structures, by suggesting a virtual continuation. This is done by demonstrating both model and copy, or cause and effect, or by playing with the scale or our expectations. The [...]
