My contribution to the 5th Odessa Biennial fleshes out ideas first proposed for Distributing Obsolescence: Food bank, Art bank, Technology bank last year for Villa Capri, Italy, that sought to establish a set of coordinates to situate contemporary art.

The new project is structured through a series of negations, it is untitled and without a press release and the material is inserted into an existing installation across two rooms, using a found Russian press release juxtaposed with press releases I have amassed over the past few years which are changed each day. The work sought to develop a whole idea around change, which forces are stopping development and ideas for taking thinking and art forward.

The work sought to develop a whole idea around change, which forces are stopping development and ideas for taking thinking and art forward, reflected in the change of register in the material across the two rooms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below is just a trial area and will undergo considerable changes over the next few weeks. The files are low resolution, but if anyone wants copies of high-resolution material please email dged03@hotmail.com

 

Below are a series of publications to accompany the installation for Odessa and are intended to provide detailed background information on the new installation/visual essay. Booklet 3 is currently being designed and the 9th Booklet of recent texts will also be produced,  while the 4 books designed with Ioana Pioaru in 2012 that summarised the history and ideas behind Post Autonomy is also available again. Booklet 10 on the language of the body is under development and will be published soon

TURBULENCE AREA

 

The following information on the Biennial is the English translation of a text on the Biennial website

 

” The Odessa Biennial once again confronts artists with Global problems. That, according to many authoritative experts, is one of the signs of provincialism and marginality. However, in the era of fundamental crisis, and even more so – a crisis of fundamentals, the true outline of the future often encountered in the margins of canonic texts, at the boundaries, are melting in the fire of innovations.

Half a century later after “Future Shock” by Alvin Toffler outstanding sales manager discovered that we are shaped by turbulent flows of V.U.C.A, volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.

If earlier turbulence in culture has been defined as a crisis or transition with their spatial-temporal boundaries, now the state of turbulence claims to be boundless. The ancient curse “May you live in an era of change” becomes meaningless as contemporary culture fails to reach a state of stability. Out put from turbulent area is considered a catastrophe that could end human existence as a whole.

Unity and opposition, private and the general enter into the most dangerous zone of risk. Radical design modeling is urgently needed as permanent change accelerates exponentially. One such means has been art. A daily challenge of art at all times has been working with universal relationships, including dynamic ones. Value’s of this function in turbulent zone trends to infinity. We are once again called to look into the essence of social problems from the specific and universal art optics. But we exist at a moment where audiences for contemporary art are isolated ( which is a generation of a postindustrial society) becomes unbearable. ” The Odessa Bienniale is curated by Mikhail Rashkovetsky and Semen Kantor
