CHALET SOCIETY-LOS ANGELES TIMES


Marie-Caroline Hominal

Chalet Society inaugurates its 2015 international program with a first stop in Los Angeles and presents

Le Triomphe de la Renommée
Concept, text & performance by
Marie-Caroline Hominal
January 29 - 31, 2015 / del vaz projects

Curated by Patrick Steffen

With this project, Chalet Society invites curators, artists, cultural producers, to collaborate with us and use the Chalet Society as a tool to develop their own projects in the spirit of an open source initiative.

Le Triomphe de la Renommée is one of a collection of six poems by Italian poet Francesco Petrarca (1304 - 1374), titled I Trionfi, describing the phases of life by opposing virtues in duels: "Fame" wins over "Death" but is defeated by "Time" and "Eternity". In a small room within a domestic environment, evoking the intimate space of a backstage of a Theater, the artist Marie-Caroline Hominal welcomes one guest at a time, playing with the codes of theatrical artifice to deliver an intense and intimate one-to-one encounter.

Marie-Caroline Hominal, aka MCH, aka Silver, aka Berries, aka Fly Girl, is a dancer, choreographer, and performer currently based in Geneva. Her practice include video, songwriting, music, choreography, and performance. Recently, she has developed a series of one-to-one performances such as Hôtel Oloffson (2013) and Le Triomphe de la Renommée (2013), as well as full length performances such as Ballet (2014) and Patricia Poses by the Pop Machine (2011). As a dancer she has collaborated with Tanztheater Basel, Iréne Tassembedo, Blanca li, Gisèle Vienne and Marco Berrettini. She was a guest performer for Human Writes (2005) by William Forsythe and B.O.B. (2004) by Dick Wong. Read more

DOUGLAS GORDON - PHANTOM AT GAGOSIAN GALLERY 75 AND PARK NEW YORK.

Phantom





Opening reception: Thursday, December 11th, from 6:00 to 8:00pm

I think it's supposed to be about provoking enough of a memory that people take it away and do their own thing with it. For me, artwork... is something that you should be able to take away-you don't have to be present in front of it,  and that's the potency of the artwork when it works.
 -Douglas Gordon

"TEARS BECOME...STREAMS BECOME...,"

Gagosian New York is pleased to present Douglas Gordon's Phantom (2011), coinciding with "tears become... streams
become...," his large-scale installation on view at the Park Avenue Armory from December 9, 2014-January 4, 2015.

A conjurer of collective memory and perceptual surprise, Gordon's tools include commodities and mechanisms of everyday life. Into a diverse body of work-which spans video and film, sound, photographic objects, and texts-he infuses a combination of humor and trepidation to recalibrate reactions to the familiar. Key examples include 24 hour Psycho (1993), in which he slowed down Alfred Hitchcock's legendary film into a full day's duration, attenuating the horror until any sensation of suspence ceased to exist; and the feature film Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait (2006, with Phillipe Parreno) in which multiple cameras tracked every action and emotion of the French soccer star during a decisive game.

                                                      Feature Film by Douglas Gordon 
See the Pen Video.js Default Skin by Nick Routsis (@fdcinc) on CodePen.



In Phantom (2011), Gordon collaborating with singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, examines grief and longing in a sonic and visual requiem. Expanding upon his use of portraiture as a tool for investigating the human condition, Gordon employs slow-motion film produced with a high speed Phantom camera. The film focuses on Wainright's eye-blackened with make-up, weeping, and glaring back at the viewer, echoing melodramatic performances by stars of the silent screen. On stage in front of the screen, a baby grand piano stands over another piano that has been burnt to ashes-a recurring symbol for Gordon that here might allude to the cyclical nature of life. Meanwhile Wainright's voice, accompanied by resigned piano chords, permeates the space during the daytime, while in the evening his silent gaze looks out plaintively a passersby on Park Avenue. The death of Wainwright's mother inspired the 2010 album All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu, the soundtrack for this installation, and its opening track,"Who Are You New York?," is a direct engagement with visitors and their surroundings. Gordon foregoes any specific narrative for poignant emotional triggers that sharpen over the passing minutes, transforming the gallery into an afflictive mise-scène that resonates differently with the experiences of each viewer.

Douglas Gordon is the recipient of the 1996 Turner Prize, the 1997 Venice Biennale's Premio 2000 award, the 1998 Hugo Boss Prize awarded by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the 2008 Roswitha Haftmann prize, and the 2012 Käthe Kollwitz Prize. The film Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival before screenings at numerous international venues. k.364 premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September 2010,

and Henry Rebel: Drawing and Burning premiered at Art Basel's Art Unlimited in 2012.
