PERFORMANCE: ANDRÉS VILLA TORRES + ZURICH ART SPACE GUIDE 2018

 ANDRÉS VILLA TORRES live coding performance  Short Notes on Concave Bubbles  In the struggle for identity, the manifold of representations and self-made constructions of the selves that over-flood, the internet shows a paradoxical state. The individual cannot exist without the acknowledgement of society, still every shared manifestation confirms the interdependency in the seek of uniqueness. A social-individual hybrid space is created and the artist recognises it as a concave bubble: an imaginary shape that describes the physical space which covers the totality of a given universe except for its interior - the negative space within a bubble. Short notes on concave bubbles is a live coded performance reflecting on personal experiences of the partly-fictional every day life of a programmer, the recollection of interviews conducted over online chats, and profiles' information extracted from different online social platforms.  andresvillatorres.work   ZURICH ART SPACE GUIDE launch edition 2018 Independent artist-run exhibition spaces are also known as off-spaces. These structures, which serve as platforms and spaces for experimentation are typically non-profit initiatives. The guide has been produced as much for locals than for visitors. It aims to make more visible and accessible the vibrant independent Zurich art scene. Published by: Verein Zurich Art Space Guide Designed by:  Badesaison   www.artspaceguide.ch

CONCERT: THIS DIFFICULT TREE

 ABOUT:  The quartet of the Zurich based bass player and singer Silvan Jeger connects roots and branches of song type and world music with jazz and free improvisation. Resembling a gnarled tree that sprawls in all directions, strangely flourishing, bearing unusual fruit. The compositions are positioned like sculptures and objects in a white cube – however, they are held together by the sound of the group’s members who act as subtle bonsai-botanics and yet brave woodchoppers. The debut Double Sun outlines in its artwork the materiality and the two-sidedness of the medium. The Zurich based artist Jonas Etter uses a grinding machine on the printed typography which doesn’t offer a clear front or rear side, bringing forth a serial of 300 different and therefore unique cover artworks.  Silvan Jeger – Contrabass, Vocals, Shrutibox Silvan Schmid – Trumpet Frantz Loriot – Viola Vincent Glanzmann – Drums  Door open 19.30h. Free Entry with Kollekte

PERFORMANCE: YARA MEKAWEI

 Yara Mekawei is a Cairo-based electro-acoustic music composer and sound artist. A prolific artist and scholar, Yara‘s sonic bricolages draw inspiration from the flow of urban centers and the infrastructure of cities. In her work she integrates exotic visual elements of the society into fusion progressive of her projects.      Pistachio, Mind, Map     I was afraid of climbing heights I can not wear gloves It is possible to stop drink wine for five minutes and drink a cup of coffee without sugar A visitor enters the kitchen and everyone is silent for minutes ... He begins to speak asking for a glass of milk .. He holds the milk cup saying: “I used to smoke in the kitchen while I was drinking milk, so there is no law preventing me from doing so.” There is a word to define two jobs in Egypt, “prompter”, the person who prompts religious words after the death in the coffin and the person who prompts actors on the theater He closes his phone on Friday evening, when he reads, so he can not hear the surround sounds around him. Can you wear a sports shoe with a classic suit? The color of your nails changes, the size of things around you varies irregularly, your breathing rate changes and you realize you are a different person every hour and a half.    http://yaramekawei.wixsite.com/yaramekawei

Pistachio, Mind, Map


I was afraid of climbing heights
I can not wear gloves
It is possible to stop drink wine for five minutes and drink a cup of coffee without
sugar
A visitor enters the kitchen and everyone is silent for minutes ... He begins to speak
asking for a glass of milk ..
He holds the milk cup saying: “I used to smoke in the kitchen while I was drinking
milk, so there is no law preventing me from doing so.”
There is a word to define two jobs in Egypt, “prompter”, the person who prompts
religious words after the death in the coffin and the person who prompts actors on
the theater
He closes his phone on Friday evening, when he reads, so he can not hear the
surround sounds around him.
Can you wear a sports shoe with a classic suit?
The color of your nails changes, the size of things around you varies irregularly,
your breathing rate changes and you realize you are a different person every hour
and a half.

THE SEVERAL WAYS I'VE DIED IN MY IMAGINATION

 ABOUT: What began as a quiet investigation of personal anxieties has evolved into the multi-medial storytelling experience: “The Several Ways I’ve Died In My Imagination”. The texts and musical soundscapes of Sarah Reid and Tomek Kolczynski are combined with the visual works of Brigitte Fässler and Niculin Barandun to create a performance that expounds on the question: “Of what parts is my imagination composed, and how can these parts die?” Following the narration of our protagonist through a series of stories that are each representative of one of these parts – ranging from religion and race, to memory and the ability to create – we observe the storyteller die repeatedly. By identifying the elements of her life that inform her imagination, and acknowledging the ways that they are vulnerable and have been harmed, we explore what might merit the fear that the imagination as a whole can die.   http://partone.theseveralwaysivediedinmyimagination.ch/   http://parttwo.theseveralwaysivediedinmyimagination.ch/   TEXT / VOCAL Sarah Reid MUSIC Tomek Kolczynski VIDEO / PHOTO Brigitte Fässler VIDEO / ANIMATION Niculin Barandun ONLINE COORDINATION William Bejedi DESIGN / WEBSITE Julian Humm CO-PRODUCTION Daniel Wernli CO-PRODUCTION Christoph Schön MAKE-UP / BODYPAINTING Bouche Rouge alias Adelina SPECIAL THANKS TO Jannik Giger

"We have all the time in the world” & “Forever Royalties"

 Anna Rubi and Eirini Sourgiadaki became an artistic duo in 2015. Experimentation plays an important role in their work with a focus on unusual narration modes, balancing between fiction and reality and the use of multiple platforms. They met in Zurich while studying Transdisciplinarity in the Arts (ZHDK). Since then they share their interest in culture hacking and travelling to uncommon and common places - mental and geographical ones. Works they realized together have been presented in the Z+Showroom ZHdK (Zurich, 2016), the London Biennale Manila Pollination (Manila - Berlin, 2016) and MyMuseum (Budapest, 2017)  In Kulturfolger they present one video triptych per day, respectively on the topics on Waiting (Time) and Empathy (Luxury), “We have all the time in the world” and “Forever Royalties”, both realized through a complex and restricted way of storytelling.  In the 24hrs Project, they present the two triptychs alongside a third work called “We buy gold ltd” which takes the form of a series of five prints, which tell a metaphorical success-and-failure story about the gold market in the Europe of crisis.   Anna Rubi completed her bachelor studies in the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in the media design in Budapest. After receiving her diploma, she was awarded with the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship. In 2015 she graduated from the Zürich University of the Arts in transdisciplinary art (MA). She is a member of FKSE (Studio of Young Artists’ Association) and has been working in the field of video art, film and performance. At the moment she is collaborating with Hungarian Civil Liberties Union as a documentary film maker.  Eirini Sourgiadaki holds a BA in Sociology and a MA in Cultural Management from Panteion University of Social and Political Science in Athens. She has also studied Greek and English/American Poetry and has been trained as a dancer. In 2017 she graduated from MA Transdisciplinarity in the Arts, awarded with the Hirschmann Stipendium, ZHdK Fonds Design & Kunst and the ZHdK Avina Fonds with her project “Metaphorai”. Between 2010 and 2017 she has published four books (fiction, poetry) in Athens and Zurich. She is collaborating with the Theaterhaus Gessnerallee Zürich for her event series “The Analog Session” and since November 2017 she is a PhD candidate by Prof. Giaco Schiesser (ZHdK / Kunstuniversität Linz)

VERNISSAGE: SABINE MAJA BREMERMANN

 This is the First Chapter of writing about Luxury. We don't know how will this text finish, but here we open ourselves to chance. We will let this text to write itself; to be crumpled and unfinished at times, it will crack and flow consistently, and maybe once in a while, it will be done. This chapter should deal with time. But it should also deal with complexity, uncertainty, probability, relativity, entropy and negentropy. It will question history, a complex and non-linear system, which counts in endless feedback loops, couplings and interferences. What makes history non-linear, is that it only understands events when they are lived, effected, but never those who are becoming. The ‘event in its becoming ’ is the level of the historical fact/date that the (discursive) measuring devices of the historical sciences do not grasp. The becoming of the event ‘ has neither beginning nor end, but only a milieu. It is thus more geographical than historical’ (Deleuze). Can we therefore observe time outside the discursive measuring apparatus? The concept of 'history as becoming' tells us that if there is unity, it doesn't mean there is uniformity, but rather exploration of multiplicity, an analysis of variations.  Kulturfolger will in next two and a half months host events that are not islands one to another, with fixed boundaries, but rather actualizations of temporality, of fleetingness. They will have to interact to each other; with time they will sediment in the space, leaving residue, traces of their experimental nature. The result will be in becoming of the event, an opulent cornucopia of aggregations.     First Chapter on TIME - NEGENTROPY - RELATIVITY started on Sat 13-01-2018 6:00pm and it will end on Wed 28-03-2018 11:59pm.  Second section of the First Chapter will take place on Fri 19-01-2018 6:00pm with Sabine Maja Bremermann.

PERFORMANCE: EAT ME

 ABOUT: Eat me challenges social norms in a western society obsessed with diets and self-presentation. Eat Me starts with Julie Peter gets tapped for half a liter of blood. The blood is made in to a traditional Danish blood sausage, which is baked and then fried. The performance will end with a dinner where the audience will be invited to eat the blood sausage and there by be a part of the art work. Vacuum packed blood sausage will be on offer in the end of the performance.  Announcement: It must be stated that there are no health hazards associated with eating Julie Peters blood as it is fully cooked. In accordance to European law it is not illegal to prepare, handle or consume human blood.  BIO: Julie Peter (born 1985) is a danish artist based in Berlin, Germany. Her works explores the absurd in the normal through organic objects, moods and spaces, whose ironic distance is left as dreaming comments to the norms of everyday life. Her work challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘cannibal’ and ‘civilized’ selves. She finds that the contradictions between believe and behavior reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities. Julie Peter has a BA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’s and currently studying sculpture at the Weissensee Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin.  www.juliepeter.dk
