rAndom International : “Rain Room at the Barbican”

::

::

Music by Max Richter
Filming by Gramafilm

::

Random International invites you to experience what it’s like to control the rain. Visitors can choose to simply watch the spectacle or find their way carefully through the rain, putting their trust in the work to the test. More than the technical virtuosity necessary for its success, the piece relies on a sculptural rigour, with the entire Curve transformed by the monumental proportions of a carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water. R.I. are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experiments come alive through audience interaction and staged performance…

Award-winning Magnum photographer, Chang Chien-Chi, showcased a series of his most extensive photography works in the exhibition entitled Doubleness: Photography by Chang Chien-Chi. The exhibition featured 130 photographs, 3 videos and 2 video projections. The intense and realistic images not only highlighted contemporary societal issues in Asia such as arranged marriages and immigrant culture, but also explored complex issues of love and alienation, hope and darkness as well as freedom and restriction. It was the first time that all three works, The Chain, Double Happiness and China Town, were exhibited together, whilst Double Happiness and China Town were edited and presented in the form of videos. These photographs by the artist document the installation process. – X

The exhibition pavillion designed by the Irish artist Stephen Craig is set inside an old factory building. The floor of the pavillion is covered entirely with mirror glass and a black spray-painted scaffolding is installed on top of the fragile surface. The modernistic architecture of the building, which refers to Mies van de Rohe‘s pavillion, is reflected in the floor. The visitiors can see themselves, the space from the top of the scaffolding structure and observe the entire space in a completely different way. But through the installation and with each movement of the spectators the weight of the structure cause a continous destruction of the mirror surface. A few scaffolding elements are even thrown over onto the cracking glass while other elements remain either partly constructed or partly deconstructed in the space. Seeing their own reflections the spectators become aware of themselves, they see the caused damage and realise that the perfection was gone instantly, or had never even been achieved. [Extract]

‘data.anatomy [civic]’ is a new audiovisual installation by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda, arising from a unique collaboration with Mitsuru Kariya, the development leader of the new Honda Civic car. Exhibited as a 3-screen video projection, the work immerses the viewer in an intricate yet vast audiovisual composition derived from the entire data set of the car. ~ [MUMA (Kraftwerk) Berlin on April 19th 2012]

Anthony McCall became known at the beginning of the 1970s for his unique light installations, the so-called solid light films. Hamburger Bahnhof is presenting the largest exhibition of his work to date. A selection of his works from the past ten years will be shown in the historic central hall of the museum. The spacious former railway station with its numerous windows will be transformed for the duration of the exhibition into a cinema space (black box), filled only with haze and veils of light.

McCall has developed a signature technique for his work: animated lines, drawn in white on black, are projected into a room filled with fine haze (originally smoke and dust) so that the two-dimensional drawings are articulated as seemingly tangible, sculptural forms in real space. The artist began this series with the influential film ‘Line Describing a Cone’ and then continued to develop the concept in installations like ‘Long Film for Four Projectors’ (1974).

Originally inspired by the filmic avant-garde, from the very beginning the artist turned cinema on its head, slowed it down, and created a fully traversable, populist space. Thus, his works exist at the borders of cinema, sculpture and drawing. The works are ephemeral, yet they seem tangible and physical. Projected horizontally through the space onto the wall, or – as in his most recent works – from the ceiling to the floor, they engulf the viewer in singular, slow-moving cones of light.

The horizontal works are still reminiscent of the viewing situation in the cinema, where the projector beam is cast lengthwise onto the screen. The vertical projections however, shine light from the ceiling and can be circumnavigated by the viewer, thus moving more fully into the sphere of sculpture. Here too, McCall uses organic, sinuous lines; many works also make direct reference to the body, as illustrated by titles like ‘Between You and I’ and ‘Meeting You Halfway’. Despite his conceptual and formal rigour, McCall always creates an open space where viewers can move around freely, interact with the works, communicate with each other or simply just stroll around. ~ Extract : Exhibition Concept

Japanese artist, born in 1978. Kurokawa’s works take on multiple forms such as installation works, recordings, and concert pieces. He composes the time sculpture with the field recordings and the digital generated structures, and reconstructs architecturally the audiovisual phenomenon. In recent years, his works were shown at international festivals and museums including Tate Modern, Venice Biennale, Transmediale, and Sonar. In 2010, he was also awarded the Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica. – [bio]
