Running Stitch @ Dislocate06

At Dislocate06, Hamilton, Southern, and St. Amand will present Running Stitch a project which explores how a track made with a GPS device changes our awareness and experience of place through the new vantage points and perspectives afforded by the use of satellite navigation. Visitors to the exhibition are given a GPS-enabled mobile phone to track their journeys through the city centre. These walks result in individual GPS ‘drawings’ of the visitor’s movements that are then projected live in the exhibition to disclose hidden aspects of the city.

Each individual route is sewn, as it is taking place, into a hanging canvas to form an evolving tapestry that reveals a sense of place and interconnection. The walker, who is aware of the line they are producing and of the audience at a distance, also becomes a performer of their relationship to a local place. It is only through being live and participatory that the audience perceives the push and pull of the relationship between themselves, the stitcher who sews the route onto the canvas, and the viewer at a distance and sees the city emerge from the canvas.

Papers might address such subjects as those listed below (as well as other topics proposed by authors): Continue reading

The Order of Things [be Antwerp]

The Order of Things :: September 11, 2008 – January 4, 2009 :: Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp [MuHKA], Leuvenstraat 32 2000, Antwerp, Belgium.

The Order of Things is an exhibition on the uses of archival images, image archives and image banks (and various other manifestations of a classificatory, encyclopaedic impulse) in contemporary art. It takes as its point of departure a web-based project by Vancouver photo-artist Roy Arden titled The World as Will and Representation, an online image archive consisting of a staggering 30,000+ jpegs from which Arden, who helped to flesh out many of the germinal ideas for this exhibition, selects the visual motifs for his recent digital photo-collages.

Mother’s Day by Smadar Dreyfus :: September 13 – November 8, 2008 :: Extra City Center for Contemporary Art, Tulpstraat 79, 2060 Antwerp, Belgium.

Extra City is delighted to announce the premiere of Mother’s Day (2006 – 08), a multi-channel sound and video installation by Smadar Dreyfus (1963 Tel Aviv, lives and works in London).
