Launching this November, The Other Art Fair will provide a unique platform that will allow 100 specially chosen artists to showcase their work to collectors, curators and gallerists on their own terms. This is an exclusive and unique opportunity to see and buy work directly from 100 of the brightest talents in the UK, thus allowing them to keep 100% of the profits, as they will not have to pay gallery commission.
Hundreds of artists applied to the fair before being whittled down to 100 of the most exciting young emerging artists and established independent artists demonstrating the new era in the British art market. The range of contemporary art expertise within our committee is reflected in the widespread styles and genres, from Paul Larricart’s urban spray-paint designs to the haunting landscapes of Emma Kemp. Other highlights will include Tahnee Lonsdale’s allegorical colour abstractions; whilst favourite contemporary art duo Twinkle Troughton and Tinsel Edwards will present their wickedly satirical canvases. As the celebrated contemporary British artist Charming Baker commented, “The Other Art Fair is a wonderful door-opener for some major new talent.’’ His example of operating as an unsigned but highly successful artist is a sign of the changes going on within the London art scene with artists and collectors looking to forge new connections for themselves.(the art fair)

Charles Matton Enclosures

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 2 settembre 2011

London, Press View 8th September 6 – 7pm Private View 8th September 7 – 9pm Open 9th September – 7th October 2011 Tuesday-Sunday 10 – 6pm All Visual Arts, 2 Omega Place. AVA (All Visual Arts) is proud to present the first major retrospective of French artist Charles Matton. Thirty undiscovered boites or enclosures will be installed in a specially constructed labyrinth in Kings Cross. From 1985 until his death in 2008, Charles Matton created mixed media works which defy easy classification. Theatrical, atmospheric, meticulously constructed, his small scale interiors are housed in see through boxes with glass fronts. The miniature spaces represent real world interiors and revisited memories from Matton’s own life, as well as other recognizable places such as Francis Bacon’s studio, or the library of his close friend Jean Baudrillard. The artist also fabricated interiors from his imagination, intended to recreate cherished sensations, such as the loneliness felt in an abandoned hotel corridor or the intimacy of a forgotten and disused library.
Matton and his assistant painstakingly hand-built, painted and sculpted every visible detail to 1/7 scale, from fading wallpaper to broken light sockets. Many of his enclosures of famous artist’s studios: Vermeer, Bacon, Rembrandt, Velasquez, Giacometti, Hopper and Courbet are such direct representations that viewing these boites is almost like making a journey through time. Matton reconstructed the room in which Paul Bowles died as well as Freud’s study, with his personal art collection displayed exactly as it would have been on his desk in 1910, lit by the wintry sun of a February afternoon.
All Visual Arts (AVA) is a new hybrid arts enterprise founded by art expert Joe La Placa and Mike Platt in October 2008. AVA’s goal is to build a major collection of contemporary art by representing and commissioning new work by today’s most exciting international developing artists. (matton)

Arnaud de Gramont’s photos

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 18 agosto 2011

Paris France 77, rue des Archives From 8 September to 22 October 2011, Ilan Engel Gallery will be showing Arnaud de Gramont’s photos for the first time, alongside works by Eric Michel in an exhibition entitled “Fluorescence(s)”. Ilan Engel will also offer this contrast at his stand at the Slick Art Fair from 20 to 23 October 2011. After working 15 years as an architect, Arnaud de Gramont (born in 1960) became a photographer in 2003. Frédérique Destribats explains: “From his architectural practice, Arnaud developed this deep attraction for both spaces and the light that fashions and sculpts them. He simply changed perspective. The subject matter still consists of spaces, volumes, lines and curves, and materials, but now through the lens of a camera”. Arnaud de Gramont adds: “I am fascinated by light, hence these numerous urban photos of electric light sources: lamps, neon lights, signs, halos”.
In a silent confrontation, Arnaud de Gramont puts the real at a distance, which he portrays as “dematerialized material” through the action of artificial light. He leads us “to question our own perception of spaces, volumes, lights, and colours. To seize the moment or space in the camera’s lens does not mean to freeze it, but rather to give it another scale of time and space that forces us to take a different look”, comments Frédérique Destribats. And through this perceptual prism that touches on the essential, ultimately he relates to the observer’s inwardness.
? Ilan Engel Gallery will participate in the Paris Photo Show from 10 to 13 November 2011. For the occasion, the gallery is preparing a showing (no. A11) on the theme of “Contemporary forests”, a marriage between force and fragility, light and shadow. Ilan Engel will be showing the enigmatic forest edges photographed by Romanian artist Mihai Mangiulea, and Tolstoy’s haunted woods captured by Stephan Crasneanscki. Also present will be the sensitive work of Arnaud de Gramont as he explores the Australian forests in search of the essential.
? Simultaneously, Ilan Engel will also be presenting a solo show in his gallery devoted to Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi, in collaboration with the Priska Pasquer gallery located in Cologne, as part of the Paris Photo Show. http://www.ilanengelgallery.com http://www.sylviabeder.com
