Parallel Chronologies. Invisible History of Exhibitions

 

Exhibition set design: Kristine Alksne

 

Curators:

Ieva Astahovska (LCCA, Latvian Centre for Contemporary)

Exhibition Parallel Chronologies. Invisible History of Exhibitions investigates the exhibitions as a cultural phenomenon and a genre on its own right focusing on the period determined by the state socialisms of the Eastern European region. The exhibition will offer insight about significant but now less known events in Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, displaying parallels and differences between them. 

The research project Parallel Chronologies, launched by contemporary art initiative tranzit.hu, is dealing with postwar Eastern European art exhibitions and events between the 1960s and 1980s. Mapping, studying and generating curatorial and artistic practices and methodologies, the project presents an international network of professional relationships, documents of exhibitions, events, and art spaces instead of the mere display of artworks from the period. Parallel Chronologies has been presented so far as an exhibition in Budapest in 2009, and in Karlsruhe in 2010. Exhibition is part of the international cooperation project Recuperating the Invisible Past coordinated by LCCA that focus on the ‘revision' of the socialist period in art and culture legacy of the former Eastern Europe from a contemporary perspective. The international partners of the project are: tranzit.hu in Budapest, Art History Institute at Tallinn Art Academy, Vilnius National Art Gallery and Art Institute Wyspa in Gdansk.

Assemblage

(Re: arrangement of 6 musical pieces)

 

in collaboration with Emmanuel Pidré

 

Sound installation

Concrete, speakers

Variable dimentions

 

Riga Art Space

 

Sculpture pieces are based on sounds by:

Kassem Mosse:   578

Peter Kruder:   Before Night Falls

STL:   Silent States

Sascha Funke:   Mango

Ron Trent:   Altered States

Sonofdistantearth:   Dogs / Straying

 

Assemblage (Re: arrangement of 6 musical pieces) is made up of a series of works based on 6 pieces of Techno music. The sculptures are composed of geometric shapes that are the result of the analysis of the audio tracks via a custom algorithm. Arranged together following a logic of construction based on sensibility to form and line. The result is the intersection between these aspects of digital and craft work.
