UBERMORGEN.COM: WOPPOW – Episode 1

Es geht los: Die erste Episode der “Rockumentary about Somali Pirate Fashion, Fishing Piracy, Action and War in North-East-Africa and some Media Hacking Artists from Europe” von UBERMORGEN.COM ist da. Um was geht´s? “A French fashion designer who calls himself “woppow” travels to his homeland of Kenya and gets incredibly inspired by Somali pirates for his next “Art Couture” collection. He creates the new lines “MZUNGU by woppow” (pret-a-porter) and a kids collection called “woppow SHIFTAZ”. Influenced by the superficiality of media reports on the mysterious Somali pirates he starts to copy the mitumba pirate-style and the local fishermen wear. He photoshoots kids in Kibera in his new stylish streetcar, his scouts invade Eastleigh in order to access kenyan/somali trend-mixes.”

Update: Post

Neue Arbeit von Post: “Zeiger”: “couple of months ago, ad-projectors appeared in a Berlin subway station, throwing moving images all over the station walls and lifting visually aggressiveness to a new level. Since the images were projected, we could get between projector and projection to fight this new quality of exaggerated advertisement with its own weapons. Minimalinvasive adbusting devices made of mirrors, magnets and quite some ducktape.” Via

Luzinterruptus: “One sees the sea between the cars”

Die neue Intervention von Luzinterruptus: “One sees the sea between the cars”. “We believe that the containers of rubble in the streets of Madrid are like stranded ships, waiting between the cars, for the rising tide that never comes, to take them back to the sea. Some of these containers, especially those which are in luxury neighborhoods, are covered by shiny tarpaulins of green and blue, which cover the unsightly rubbish inside them and when we see them we imagine that a piece of the deep, bright sea has crept into our dry, urban habitat. The night of February the 7th, we decided to stage this fantasy, adding paper boats with lights to our imaginary, miniature seas. The action was called “One sees the sea between the cars” and to carry it out we used 3 covered containers which we found in the neighborhood of Salamanca in Madrid, placing upon its “waters”, a tiny, harmless fleet, of illuminated paper boats.” Via: Mail, thx!

Craig Colorusso: “Sun Boxes”

Sound-Installation von Craig Colorusso: “Sun Boxes are an environment to enter and exit at will. It’s comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels. There is a different loop set to play a guitar note in each box continuously. These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord. Because the loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time. The sounds of Sun Boxes have been described as both soothing and energizing. A unique combination of adjectives often used to describe yoga, or meditation. When experiencing the piece, Sun Boxes allows the participant to slow down, and notice the subtleties of the composition unfold. With the abundance of technology and hustle of this culture it is a much needed concept to not only be allowed, but also encouraged to slow down.”

Watchlist: Andreas Neumann

Ziemlich genau so sieht Deutschland auch für mich aus: “Heimzone” von Andreas Neumann. “Ein Schäferhund auf einen Podest, die Überreste einer abgebrannten Bar, Obdachlose, das Legolandmodel der Stadt Frankfurt a. M., eine Neubausiedlung am Rande eines Feldes – was das alles miteinander zu tun hat, erschließt sich auf den ersten Blick nicht so leicht. „ Es geht mir um die unterschiedlichen Aspekte von Heimat und Erinnerung“, erklärt Andreas Neumann, Urheber all jener Fotografien, die an diesem Wochenende in der Galerie 61 zu sehen sind. Der erste Eindruck eines Bizarren Panoptikums wild zusammen gewürfelter Portraits und Panoramen trügt also. Andreas Neumann, aufgewachsen in der gutbürgerlichen Idylle einer hessischen Dorfgemeinde, begibt sich mit der Kamera auf die Spur seiner ganz persönlichen Identität. Aus seiner Herkunft, Freunden, zufälligen Bekanntschaften, seiner Liebesbeziehung und seinen Träumen generiert der 37 jährige eine persönlich gefärbte künstlerische Heimat.Der Clou: Mal handelt es sich um authentische Bilder und Schnappschüsse, mal sind die Szenarien gestellt. Das spiel mit Täuschung und Wirklichkeit treibt Andreas Neumann bisweilen auf die spitze: Was echt wirkt, ist künstlich und umgekehrt.” (Uta Jostwerner, Westfalen-Blatt). Via: Mail, thx!
