‘UnGreen: Naturally Artificial Intelligence’
The 4th Open Fields conference on Art & Science Research and UN/GREEN Exhibition,
RIXC Festival 2019
July 4 – 7, 2019, Riga, Latvia
The RIXC Festival 2019 aims at complicating the pervasively employed notion of “green” by providing a cross-disciplinary platform for the discussions and artistic interventions exploring one of the most paradoxical and broadest topics of our times. The festival will feature the “Un/Green” exhibition opening that takes place in the Latvian National Museum of Art, and the 4th Open Fields conference which aims to ‘un-green greenness’, ‘eco-systemically’ reconnect ‘post-human postures’, and discover and unpack ‘Naturally Artificial Intelligences.
‘Green’, symbolically associated with the ‘natural’ and employed to hyper-compensate for what humans have lost, will be addressed as the indeed most anthropocentric of all colours, in its inherent ambiguity between alleged naturalness and artificiality. Are we in control of ‘green’? Despite its broadly positive connotations ‘green’ incrementally serves the uncritical desire of fetishistic and techno-romantic naturalization in order to metaphorically hyper-compensate for material systemic biopolitics consisting of the increasing technical manipulation and exploitation of living systems, ecologies, and the biosphere at large.***

Listasafn Árnesinga: Leiðsögn og listamannaspjall

Listamannaspjall með Önnu Hallin og Guðjóni Ketilssyni

 

Sunnudaginn 18. nóvember kl. 14:00 munu listamennirnir Anna Hallin og Guðjón Ketilsson spjalla við gesti um listaverk sín á sýningunni Halldór Einarsson í ljósi samtímans. Verk listamannanna á sýningunni eru ólík innbyrðis þó handverkið sameini þau og á mismunandi hátt kallast verk yngri listamanna á við verk Halldórs. Anna og Guðjón eru tveir af fjórum núlifandi listamönnum sem boðin var þátttaka í sýningunni vegna mismunandi tenginga við myndlist og feril Halldórs Einarssonar, sem fæddur var 1893.

Guðjón vinnur einkum skúlptúra og teikningar og verk hans eru víða að finna í söfum. Í forgrunni flestra þeirra er mannslíkaminn, nærvera hans eða fjarvera. Aðalefniviður Guðjóns hefur um langt skeið  verið tré eins og hjá Halldóri og verk Guðjóns sem bera heitið Verkfæri  eru líka eins konar minni, eða óður til, verkfæra og handlagni. Í nafnlausu verki eftir Guðjón hefur hann líka umbreytt gömlu húsgagni í skúlptúr og þrátt fyrir eigin merkingu kallast skúlptúrinn á við tímabil í ferli Halldórs er hann vann við tréskurð í húsgagnaverksmiðju í Chicago. Eftir Guðjón er líka verkið Hár, sem er innsetning á gólfi og enn í vinnslu.

Anna hefur fyrst og fremst fengist við mótun og efniviðurinn gjarnan leir. Undanfarið hefur hún einnig unnið teikningar og um árabil hefur hún unnið að myndlist í samstarfi við myndlistarmanninn Olgu Bergmann, ekki síst á sviði myndlistar í opinberu rými. Á sýningunni í Listasafni Árnesinga bera verk Önnu heitin Valdakonur, Skriffinnar, Selfie og Listamenn, og eiga það sameiginlegt að vera portrett, en þau eru unnin með mismunandi tækni og af ólíkum toga. Þrátt fyrir það kallast þau á við fjölbreytt portret Halldórs og að auki eiga Anna og Halldór það sameiginlegt að vera fædd og uppalin í öðru landi en þau settust að í, til starfa.

Sýningin Halldór Einarsson í ljósi samtímans hefur verið framlengd til 16. desember. Safnið er opið fimmtudaga til sunnudaga kl. 12-18. Aðgangur er ókeypis, líka á spjallið og allir velkomnir.
