Bianca Baldi - Eyes in the Back of Your Head

Metaphors of Sight

Of our five senses, sight stands at a strange and marked remove. Compared to touch, taste, sound and smell, sight has a claim on the force of objectivity that has continuously been reinforced throughout history. Of course, when this supposed objectivity is held under any scrutiny, we find endless examples of its inconsistency and deception. But these tend to be regarded as exceptions to the rule.

JALAL TOUFIC
Labyrinth

Both the man in the painting’s foreground and the diegetic painter in its background have their backs to the spectator. With some strain, the painter is turned toward the foreground figure, observing him in order to add the final touch to a canvas on which we see a representational rendition of his model also from the back! Although a straight line can be traced from the painter in the background to the figure in the foreground to the spectator, the two 180° over-turns undergone by the foreground figure, one away from the spectator he was facing and one away from the painter doing his portrait in the background, do not add up to 360° or cancel out, do not return him to his starting position: a labyrinthine circle.

Is This Where It Ends?

Einleitungstext Publikation 'Is This Where It Ends? Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof 2011-2014'

"Dimension – weniger verstanden als die komplexe Bestimmung eines mathematischen Raums, sondern vielmehr als schieres Ausmaß und räumliche Erfassbarkeit – ist eine der zentralen architektonischen Bedingungen des Ausstellungsraums, die beständig auf das Ausstellungsmachen im Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof einwirkt und sich nicht zuletzt aus dessen historischem Entstehungskontext begründet (...)"

60 Million Americans can't be wrong

Christopher Kulendran Thomas’ family is from a place that no longer exists. For three decades during the Sri Lankan civil war, Eelam was self-governed as an autonomous state led by a neo-Marxist revolution. But this uprising was crushed in 2009 by an authoritarian government protected by the cloak of national sovereignty.

JEPPE UGELVIG
New Eelam and the dispersion of critique

"Could this perhaps now be the time when an artist starts a successful high-growth tech company – on artistic and critical terms – and if so, how would their critical apparatus translate into a socioeconomic reality?" 



Jeppe Ugelvigs Text zu Christopher Kulendran Thoma’s housing startup, zu lesen im DIS magazine.
