FIAC FLASHBACK | Hans Schabus

FIAC FLASHBACK | Hans Schabus

Hans Schabus was born in 1970. He lives and works in Vienna. In the work Ikarus, Hans Schabus places his old Renault Kangoo, compressed and mangled into a roughly rectangular shape, in the exhibition space. Individual parts of the vehicle have either been destroyed in the compression process or are hidden beneath its other elements. The carcass is suspended on a large gantry, a device which recalls the artist’s studio. A small nest sits on the top of the gantry, creating an unexpected contrast...

FIAC FLASHBACK | Erik Dietman

FIAC FLASHBACK | Erik Dietman

Erik Dietman was born in 1937 in Jönköping in Sweden. He died in 2002 in Paris. Hailing from Europe’s Far North, the Swedish artist is fond of weird-looking creatures, such as the reindeer living deep in the forest, half-animal, half-vegetable, with horns that can also be interpreted as a ribald wisecrack about cuckoldry. The primitive, animal nature of the sculpture is not only a piece of self-criticism but also a critique of modern sculpture, which Erik Dietman is always ready to challenge....

FIAC FLASHBACK | Alina Szapocznikow

Alina Szapocznikow was born in 1926 in Kalisz in Poland. She died in 1973 in Praz-Courant, in France. Autoportret – Zielnik is part of her last corpus of sculptures. In 1971, following the incorporation of her “death mask” in Tumeurs personnifiées, Szapocznikow made a radical move back to a figuration, reworked through the merging of the body with the form and material of her sculptures. Imprinting the body in the material before it set, she created excruciating and fragile images of herself...

FIAC TIPS: Kenneth Goldsmith, “Duchamp Is My Lawyer”

FIAC TIPS: Kenneth Goldsmith, “Duchamp Is My Lawyer”

Introduction: The Back Door There’s a back door to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City that few know about. Invisible to the bustling crowds at the main entrance on Fifty-Third Street, it’s desolate except for the occasional noisy school group or quiet academic researcher entering and exiting. There’re no admission fees or snaking queues, only a lonely intern sitting at a desk. If you sign in and take the elevator to the top floor, you’ll find the MoMA Library. It was there in the...

FIAC FLASHBACK | THU-VAN TRAN

Thu Van Tran speaks about her work "Pénétrable - Allégorie de la forêt" presented by Almine Rech as part of FIAC Projects 2019 at the Petit Palais. Born in Ho Chi Minh City in 1979, Thu-Van Tran lives and works in Paris. Pénétrable - Allégorie de la forêt can be situated somewhere between a painting and a sculpture, an allegory of the elements that surround and compose us. A structure made from hevea wood and steel supports a double layer of rubber, separating - like a stage curtain - the...
