BOOGIE WOOGIE RHYTHM SECTION
100 YEARS AFTER DE STIJL
01.12. – 25.01.2018

The most famous representative of this movement, which took its course in 1917 were the artists Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. With dozens of exhibitions, the Netherlands in 2017 celebrated and reminded of De Stijl’s departure in art.

With this exhibition we want to continue to celebrate 100 years after De Stijl movement. The title of the exhibition Boogie Woogie refers to a famous work by Piet Mondrian Broadway Boogie Woogie from the year 1942/43. In our exhibition we would like to focus on the networking and exchange between contemporary artists who are concerned with the De Stijl movement from 1917.

THE RHYTHM SECTION AND DE STIJL

In ESSAYS on November 24, 2017 at 10:37 am

The general in spite of the particular was how the mathematician and theosopher Dr MHJ Schoenmaekers (1875-1944) defended the concept of the group De Stijl. The necessity at the beginning of the 20th century to emphasize The general, was characterized by no longer relevant figure principles of traditional use of forms. The general is defined as a matter by the group De Stijl to develop a new form of formal language, which was based on the variation of the few basic principle of artistic creation (De Nieuwe Beelding).

After 100 years of De Stijl, in the age of the total relativism it is unconvincing to let The general triumph over The particular. Not to be confined by the greatest, yet to be contained within the smallest is a definition, which declared the enterprise of the artists group Rhythm Section. The substantive trait, which linked the artists of the group Rhythm Section in their works is the commitment to a hyper reflexivity in dealing with the rhythm, not as a compulsion, but as an original constant. The clear handling of the rhythm allows an endless variety of individual variations.

The striking link between De Stijl and Rhythm Section I see in the original handling of their understanding and construction of visual rhythm. If De Stijl laid the general foundation for the form of the rhythm in fine arts, then Rhythm Section relates this form to the smallest.

The search for the true painting is that which I absorbed from the study of Piet Mondrian and De Stijl. The core of the true painting lies not in the image but in the origin of painting. A 100 years ago a central issue of Mondrian’s painting was to accomplish the emancipation of the rhythm and this is a central issue of my painting today. For Piet Mondrian the origin of painting was lying 100 years ago in the design of the surface, similarly for me the origin, truth and purpose of painting today lies in the application of colors on surfaces. 100 years ago for Piet Mondrian the rhythm in painting was a design element of the surface, today the rhythm in painting is for me a design element of the movement.

The purest rhythm must be the purest expression of life … all expressions of rhythm are true, says Piet Mondrian.

OLEKSIY KOVAL
1,2,1,3,1,5

In der Ausstellung mit dem Titel 1,2,1,3,1,5 zeigen wir aktuelle Arbeiten des Künstlers Oleksiy Koval, der sich in seiner Malerei mit dem Element des Rhythmus beschäftigt. Rhythmische Strukturen generieren den Malprozess als eine mehr oder minder geregelte Bewegung in Raum und Zeit. Sie geben dem Anbringen von Farben auf Flächen eine Form. Die Frage, was ist Rhythmus in der Malerei, hat Oleksiy Koval nie losgelassen. Während seines Studiums an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste München suchte Koval nach einer Polarität in der Malerei: „Ich wollte räumliche Darstellungen vermeiden und stattdessen eine Differenz wiedergeben, in der die Farbe auf der Fläche bleibt und dennoch eine visuelle Weite gewinnt.”

Invitation to ARTIST 2017 Realist UTOPIAS

The world has seen worse.

It has been through centuries of terror.

But even in the twilight of history, there was always hope that things would become better.

Yet today, we live in an age that is defined by historical amnesia, where both the past and an imagined future are oppressed more severely than ever before.

The unique dynamic of the 21st century seems to be the devaluation of the utopian.

As the face of the age darkens, one question becomes imperative:

Is it not possible to defend a style of utopian thinking that will liberate the desire to rebuild everyday life from ideological and instrumental persecution?

Can utopia not be defended again in the sense of discussing alternative social lives?

Politics and art aside, we cannot let go of a utopian motive that protects the productive distance between life and dream to keep the “hope principle” alive.

Utopian literature, as a rich resource that heralds a yet-unbuilt future without sacrificing or falling captive to the present, awaits to be rediscovered.

ARTIST 2017 / 27th

Istanbul Art Fair deals with utopias under three categories: historical, conceptual and actual.

We embark upon an expedition to utopias with exhibitions, concerts, performances, discussions, workshops, screenings and publications.

We reach from 13th century Anatolian dervishes and Şeyh Bedreddin to the Soviet Avant-garde, from cyborgs and science fiction to alternative economies, ecological movements, and pedagogic experiences.

We discuss the political aspects of the different concepts of temporality borne by utopia.

We try to comprehend the perception of history today that makes utopias impossible.

We call for discussions of utopia as a concept across relationships of nostalgia and freedom, politics and esthetics, art and design.

“Realist Utopias” have room for production and consumption cooperatives that have become more important amidst waves of financial crises, queer and feminist lifestyles, and utopias that breathe in the body and nature.

Once again, Tüyap prepares to become a sensory public sphere that is free of leadership, where imagination and conflict thrive.

It builds a team play that is not after economic or symbolic profit.

It seeks to utilize the physical advantages of the venue to expand the boundaries of discussion.

Between November 4th and 12th, we invite everyone to collectively produce a trans-boundary experience space, where utopias are liberated from nostalgia, moral high grounds, populist propaganda, and hopelessness.

Ein herausragendes Element des Malprozesses ist der Rhythmus, in dem sich die Herstellung eines Werkes vollzieht. Rhythmische Strukturen generieren den Malprozess als eine mehr oder minder geregelte Bewegung in Raum und Zeit. Sie geben dem Anbringen von Farben auf Flächen eine Form.

An outstanding element of the process of painting is the rhythm in which the fabrication of an art work is accomplished. Rhythmical structures generate the process of painting as a more or less determinated movement in space and time. It gives form to the application of colors on surfaces.

Cologne project space Bruch & Dallas is hosting a special event entitled ‘EUROPA’ in July 2017. The initiator of this exhibition is artist and curator Dr. Billy Gruner, who lives and works in the Blue Mountains in Australia for MAP Projects and RNPG. He is the founder of several Australian contemporary art spaces dedicated to reductive art.

In 2017 RNPG is travelling Europe presenting shows focusing on artists who use the social media page Reductive Non Objective Private Gallery. The artist and curator Billy Gruner has friendship and a working relationship with the Konsortium artists dating back to 2003.

RNPG stands for Reductive Non Objective Private Gallery. It is a unique social media site where quality reductive art makers present works and connect with each other. As a result this year RNPG is doing a range of shows looking at circles of activity, and styles of production across Europe.

Billy Gruner is the founder of SNO and of MAP, or Modern Art Projects in Sydney. The style of shows he prefers are simple. Member artists are invited to supply a work and hold an opening together. Some more local makers come attend while others follow on social media. An opening is held, talks are given. Importantly, the area of expertise of the curator has been in the resurgence of reductive art after the 20th century and he, like other artists within a broad coterie of producers have participated in developing what he describes as the arrival of a new genre. As such, Gruner is connected to many developmental spaces. The artist defines this under the a rubric, Post Formalism. At the Cologne group show Gruner will talk about the stupendous rise of the reductive art genre after the 20th century, and why that shift has a special importance for German art making in particular, Concrete Art and the like.

At the openings artists can also speak, and have special ideas outlined. The RNPG EUROPA show will include an array of art makers whose works are photographed and placed on social media. RNPG is designed to be modern, highly fluid and relaxed.

RNPG IS currently presenting shows in Holland, Germany, and Australia in association with IS-Projects, MAP, A9e and the newly established KNO in Kiev.
