Shen Chao-Liang. Stage
Curated by Inez Suen. In collaboration with Aki Gallery, Taiwan

Shen Chao-Liang made over 100 photographs between 2006 and 2011. In his introduction to his book, Stage, the artist explains his fascination with these stage trucks, their history, how they are made, and the life that surrounds the performers and business owners. The artist followed many stage trucks to remote areas on the island, stopping on side roads, industrial zones, at seaports, rice paddy fields and in front of Temples. Since the 1970’s, performance groups, singing and dancing at weddings, funerals and other festivities have been part of Taiwanese culture. These highly designed, unfolding stage trucks provide the settings for the musical shows, flaunting a magical array of lights, colors and symbols that represent the values and spirit of Taiwanese culture.

Artist  statement : One of the cornerstones of my work over the last few years has been using the term Lagerstätten * taken from the German language for the description of mother lode fossil places and geological sites , if applied to the study of paleontology it uncovers how life goes on and multiplies in time and space.

José Gurvich. Creative Happines

“The time span of the present exhibition – that comprises 70 works dated between 1946 (when the artist was 19 years old) and 1972 – covers practically the total of José Gurvich’s creative period. For this reason, this exhibition has an evident didactic potential for those who are making a first approach to Gurvich’s world; in addition, it will be illustrative for those who already appreciate his work and, mainly, it will be an enjoyable experience for the public in general.

Anna Galtarossa + Daniel Gonzalez

Criminal Aesthetic Fashion at the Skyscraper Club
 
When daily gestures are repeated endlessly, aesthetic monotony all around assails you, the dress you wear for the upcoming party is visually trite and your dreams are in the hands of the most trashy commercial product packaging; it’s time to get a move on and find crumbs of authenticity.

In a world where ideals have gone down the drain and only dreams can save us, we throw ourselves in a journey outside and inside of us, just like in a movie where the soundtrack reconnects us to special moments of our life. For more info visit Art Circuits.

Aldo Chaparro. Rivotrilanhedonia Waldo Balart. Scripts of Color

“I’ve never been able to sleep well but in recent years the situation got really complicated, I started spending sleepless nights, which caused that daytime reality appear before me like a movie, sleep and fatigue had me completely disconnected from reality. The doctor prescribed me Rivotril, a renowned sleeping aid but actually quite outdated. The clonazepam (the active substance) produces drowsiness, dizziness and psychological difficulties in motor coordination, so even though I slept pretty well, during the day I was still disconnected from the world. ” For more info visit Art Circuits.
