Sara Blokland in group exhibition at LMAK Projects – New York City

December 14th, 2010 by

Sara Blokland, Installation view Reproduction of family (part two), 2009, courtesy LMAK Projects and the artist

December 15 – 24, 2010
Screening and Q&A: Tuesday, December 14, 2010, 7-9 pm

LMAKprojects is pleased to present Recorded Stories a film/video screening featuring the works of Elia Alba, Sara Blokland, Claudia Joskowicz, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky and Sari Tervaniemi. This exhibit is an exploration of identity through the eyes of five international artists. In the videos the artists approach and explore issues of their identity and affinity through such subjects matter as personal stories of race, political iconography of a continent, societal roles and stereotypes. Through their observation the audience is presented with different perspectives that allow for a review of preconceived notions.

In Sara Blokland’s two videos she examines the role of photography in representing and conceptualizing identity and personal history. The first video Roos not made for you Roos is a reflection on a photo shoot the artist made of her then seven year-old niece. The girl stares into the camera’s lens as she slowly becomes aware that she is the subject, while the artist questions herself about photographic strategies and their relation to power. In the second film Tissue Blokland shows a plain but disturbing self-portrait through a series of stills, the audience is unable to determine how her physical condition came to be. In both videos text plays an autonomous role as an image that negotiates and disturb the narrative of the photographic image.

Solo exhibition Silvia Russel at LMAKprojects – New York City

September 12th, 2010 by

Silvia Russel, Selection of Bijlmer Drawings, 2010 courtesy LMAKprojects and the artist

September 12 – October 17, 2010
Opening: Sunday, September 12 from 5-8 pm

LMAKprojects is pleased to announce the presentation of In Between Time, the third solo exhibit by Silvia Russel at the gallery. In this exhibit, Russel sought to capture the process of gentrification in the Lower East Side through drawings. She has done so by interacting and interviewing members of the LES community.

Russel immersed herself in the LES neighborhood – she approached inhabitants on the street, took part in individually guided walks with locals and spent nights in their residence – all in effort to view the neighborhood through a different lens. She interviewed across the board – from inhabitants whose roots are cemented in the community to new arrivals, asking both ends about the ways in which gentrification has affected their lives.

Russel is interested – as an artist and outsider – if and where the old and new meet. Do social networks mix? Do different social groups work together in the neighborhood? Does the new replace the old? Or, do they develop a hybrid characteristic to the neighborhood?

In her work, Russel combined the stories she has been told with her own experiences and imagination. On view are colorful drawings accompanied by written statements of the interviewees depicting LES inhabitants, such as Chinese, Hispanic, Jewish and Caucasian persons in a background typical for the LES area. The drawings give a glimpse of the social positions in the neighborhood and how this has changed over time. The work offers a visual dialogue to the idea of gentrification in the LES, and makes the viewer a witness of a moment in the ongoing process.

In relation to this, Russel will also present a series of drawings, which was developed in a neighborhood in Amsterdam called the Bijlmer. It is a residential area that was developed in the 70′s and was presented as a suburban neighborhood, a utopia, however it became known as the ghetto of Amsterdam. In recent years the neighborhood has seen drastic changes and celebrates its diversity within the community. The two bodies of works offer an interesting relation and contrast to each other as the viewer can see the result of gentrification in neighborhoods from different hemispheres of the world, and finding that we don’t differ that much at the end of the day.

Liselot van der Heijden presentation at Cooper Union – New York City

March 5th, 2010 by

Liselot van der Heijden, installation view of Monument Valley, courtesy Smart Project Space, Amsterdam

March 5, 2010 from 5:30-8:00pm

False Metaphors: Screening of selected one-channel videos by Liselot van der Heijden, followed by a panel discussion with artist Dennis Adams, art historian and author Martha Buskirk, artist Liselot van der Heijden, critic Chris Kasper and curator and author Sara Reisman. Afterwards there will be a reception and book signing.

Liselot van der Heijden: False Metaphors is an artist monograph that consists of visual documentation of fifteen art projects by Van der Heijden, with texts by the artist and two essays about the artwork by art historian Martha Buskirk (Ph.D., author of The Contingent Object of Art, published by MIT Press) and independent curator and director of Percent for Art in New York, Sara Reisman. The publisher is Smart Project Space, a cutting edge Contemporary Art Institution in Amsterdam and IDEA books is the distributor. The book is approached as a creative project and received a publication grant from The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.

Liselot van der Heijden produces installations, videos, objects and photographs. Recurring themes in Van der Heijden’s works are control and power of the gaze, the tendency to objectify "the other" and "nature" as a cultural/political idea and anthropomorphic projection. Her work suggests that representations of nature reveal more about cultural, ideological, political and social frameworks, than actual nature.
