WHO: Alexei Gordin (EE)
Estonian Artist Alexei Gordin Intervenes In Abandoned Spaces With Performative Activity, Using These As Tools For The Deconstruction Of The Cold Logic Of Capitalism.
The Outside World Must Not Come In
In his book Inside the White Cube: The Ideology of the Gallery Space Brian O’Doherty claims that “a gallery is constructed along laws as rigorous as those for building a medieval church. The outside world must not come in.” The inspiration for the paintings created during Alexei Gordin’s stay at SomoS comes from a picture blog where the world’s top galleries post their high level exhibitions every day. The spaces in the shots are so white, ideal, symmetrical, and fearfully clinical, that the presence of any real life seems to be an excess.
These idealized images are used as the settings of Gordin’s paintings, representing a stage for absurdist fictional situations underlining the artist’s view of the lifelessness of the professional art sphere, bringing life into it. In contrast to the sterile idealizations of the commercialized art world, Gordin puts forward the abandoned space as an antagonistic element of the exhibition’s narrative. The paintings in his exhibition are ironical depictions of the collision of controversial interventions and the sophisticated myths of contemporary art.
Students grades 6 - 12 are invited to submit art inspired by the Halloween theme. "I love spooky, but not horror," says juror Jessica "Ratgrrl" Valentin. "I blend my work with spooky themes, color, and sweetness so I can deal with the things that scare me. How do you face the things that scare you?"
Prizes will be awarded in two categories: grades 6 - 8 & 9 - 12
Costume Reception October 26, 2018, 6 - 8pm
