Installing 'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes & des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne' at Meessen De Clercq

Opening: Thursday 24 February 2011, 6–9pm.
With works by Kasper Akhøj (1976, Copenhagen, Denmark. Lives in New York, US); Martí Anson (1967, Mataró, Spain. Lives there); Maria Loboda (1979, Kraków, Poland. Lives in London, UK); Charlotte Moth (1975, Carshalton, UK. Lives in Paris, France) and Sarah Ortmeyer (1980, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Lives there).

The Exposition International des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes & des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne (International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts & Art and Technology in Modern Life) presents projects by five contemporary visual artists which engage with specific instances of modernity as represented through industrial or domestic design. A world-famous tower, a street, a range of furniture, a modular display system, and textile patterns, have been metaphorically taken apart before being reconstituted, sometimes literally, through artistic practices and personal affiliations which incorporate historical research, travel, tribute and scenography, for example.

Installation views of 'Ibon Aranberri. Organogramme' exhibition at Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona, until 15 May

Schema of the exhibition display in the exhibition guide.

(From the website) 'Organogramme is an exhibition by Ibon Aranberri that aims to sediment and confront various series of works made by the artist during the last decades together with others produced specifically for the occasion, and presented here as a unified whole.

(...) His oeuvre features aspects such as the relationship between nature and culture, the ideological projection upon the landscape, the configuration of the social, historicity, the local context and its economic and territorial dimensions, the peripheral condition as well as language and the modern project. The artist holds an interest in power structures and the mechanisms to build society. (...) The concept of the landscape as a setting of ideological projection, as a point of intersection between the natural object and the cultural subject, is an underlying issue in his work.' (+ info...)

Ibon Aranberri (Itziar, Guipuzkoa, in 1969) obtained a degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad del País Vasco, Bilbao, in 1994. In the mid-1990s he participated in the Arteleku workshops in San Sebastian and continued his studies at CCA-Kitakyushu, Japan. He was involved with the early stages of the consonni project in Bilbao in 2000. He took part in Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt in 2002. Recent notable exhibitions include On working with (Ir.T.no. 513), Iaspis project room, Stockholm, 2006; Documenta 12, Kassel, 2007; Integration, Kunsthalle Basel, Basel, 2007; Disorder, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt, 2008; 16th Sydney Biennial, Sidney, 2008; and Ibon Aranberri.
