Experimental Jetset — Word–Things in Time–Space

OPENING NIGHT
THU 05.05.16 / 19:00 — 22:00

Experimental Jetset is a small, independent, Amsterdam-based graphic design studio, founded in 1997 by (and still consisting of) Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers and Danny van den Dungen. Focusing on printed matter and site-specific installations, and describing their methodology as “turning language into objects”, Experimental Jetset have worked on projects for a wide variety of institutes. Their work has been featured in group exhibitions such as ‘Graphic Design: Now in Production’ (Walker Art Center, 2011) and ‘Ecstatic Alphabets / Heaps of Language’ (MoMA, 2012). Solo exhibitions include ‘Kelly 1:1’ (Casco Projects, Utrecht, 2002) and ‘Two or Three Things I Know About Provo’ (W139, Amsterdam, 2011). In 2007, a large selection of work by Experimental Jetset was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, for inclusion in the MoMA’s permanent collection. Members of Experimental Jetset have been teaching at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (2000–2014), and are currently teaching at Werkplaats Typografie (2013–now).

Artist Talk: Mathew Kneebone — The Inner Workings of Clouds

For “The Inner Workings of Clouds”, Mathew Kneebone will construct weather diagrams to talk about the function of clouds and how they can describe the history of electrical technology. Often used as a metaphor, The Cloud has become the ubiquitous term for hardware and data displacement; Mathew will attempt to show how this relationship between clouds and technology pre-dates the internet.

Mathew Kneebone lives and works in Ghent is interested in the cultural mechanisms that we adopt to cope with technological change. His work is based on a research of electronic innovation coupled with superstitions induced by user anxieties and technical error. This research often conflates examples of engineering, technophobia, planned obsolescence with spiritualism and the occult. He completed his MFA from the Werkplaats Typografie in 2014 before participating as an artist at the Jan van Eyck Academie. He has given talks at Kunstverein, Amsterdam NL (2015); Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam NL (2015); San Serriffe, Amsterdam NL (2016); and O.O.R, Zürich CH (2015) among others.

Paul Kooiker — Haha Nude

Paul Kooiker is among the most interesting conceptual photographers currently working in the Netherlands. Although his work consists entirely of photographic images, he is not so much a photographer as a sculptor and installation artist. His fascination with intriguing themes like voyeurism, innocence and clichés leads him to construct fictive collections of images that are of extremely uncertain origin, subject and significance. In his latest installation, Nude Animal Cigar, created at the invitation of the Hague Museum of Photography, Kooiker looks back over his twenty-year career in the visual arts. The result is a bewildering array of two hundred photographic works, in which images of nudes and of animals are interspersed with close-ups of the countless cigars he has smoked in his studio over the years.

Paul Kooiker (b. 1964) is not interested in creating the perfect photographic image. The value of his work lies not in his individual photographs (which are sometimes overexposed, blurred by camera movement or grainy), but in what he does with them postproduction – the subsequent process of selection and manipulation. In the initial phase of his creative process he is a deliberately ‘bad’ photographer, producing a mass of exploratory material that often runs to hundreds of images. He then approaches this material as a visual artist, creating ‘collections’ in the form of three-dimensional installations and photo books. These fictive collections look as if they have been found somewhere or have turned up in some ancient suitcase abandoned for decades in an attic. To ensure their credibility, Kooiker pays meticulous attention to internal consistency of form and style. This stands in sharp contrast to the contents of his series, which are often enigmatic and vaguely disturbing.

DJ Workshop For Women / B2B2B2 DJ-SET

Columba, the most prominent work in the show “street photography”, is a large installation built with CD’s. Referring to the improvised scarecrows used in small Croatian city yards and terraces for repelling pigeons, the installation again speaks to Miletić’s interest in street observations and DIY culture. The CD’s are mix tapes, collected by the artist from different individuals, artists, musicians, curators and collaborators, and which will be put into service during a hands-on DJ Workshop for Women. Organized by curator and writer Amal Alhaag and artist Maria Guggenbichler, the format of the workshop challenges the stereotypical role of women within music culture, encouraging women to walk the stage and deconstruct the myth of the male DJ-guru. Here, improvisation, exchange, experimentation and learning-by-doing can offer alternatives to gender inequality and institutionalized patriarchy.

Artist Talk: Hana Miletić

Croatian-born Brussels-based Hana Miletić explores the residues and upheavals of political changes while looking at the formation of subjectivity, on the level of both the individual and the community. She describes her artistic practice as street photography via which she documents the objects and stories generated in the aftermath of the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the global financial crisis. Photography functions as a means of orientation in her ongoing exploration of social reality.

During the artist talk at RIOT Miletić will discuss her current solo exhibition Street Photography, together with the editions she has made with APE.

This Artist Talk takes place during Gent M4tinees, open galeries and off-spaces in Ghent.

Hana Miletić — Street Photography

Hinging on social and economical issues, Croatia-born Brussels-based Hana Miletić’s work explores the residues and upheavals of political changes in Europe. Often describing her artistic practice as “street photography”, Miletić documents the objects, stories and phenomena generated in the aftermath of the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the global financial crisis. While the artist employs photography as a tool to conduct her investigations, her artistic outcomes aren’t always strictly photographic. For Miletić, photography essentially functions as a means of orientation in her ongoing exploration of social reality.

Miletić is the winner of the Bozar prize at the Young Belgian Art Prize 2015.

Erik van der Weijde — BAVARIA

Erik van der Weijde spent most of his childhood holidays in Bavaria. The southern state in Germany has been a recurring theme in his work ever since. From the castles that were commissioned by King Ludwig II, such as Neuschwanstein— which became Walt Disney’s inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty castle — to the re-shaping of the cultural landscape through architecture during the Third Reich period, Van der Weijde ‘collects’ his images to trace paths between historic entities.

The silkscreens in the Third Reich series are based on a box of collector’s cards, found by the artist when he was eight years old, showing only Nazi propaganda. The three large format photographs show a part of van der Weijde’s latest series Ludwig II for which he visited and documented King Ludwig II’s buildings and life events. The ceramic works shown in the exhibition are an interpretation of a postcard from the artist’s collection of Hermann Goering’s dining room in his house on the Obersalzberg. Prominantly displayed is what seems to be Goering’s collection of silverware. All ceramic plates in the exhibition have a swastika stamped on the back, but this remains invisible to the public.

On display in the bookstore is a collection of original postcards from the Berchtesgaden, the most touristic area in southern Germany, filled with Alpine tradition, but also stained by Nazi history.

“Through his accurate series of photographs, he is tracing a path between history, culture, education, cliché and everyday habits; thanks to the attention to small odd details that each of them is hiding behind he is able to trace a link between far entities. He is collecting and showing images which become a symbol of the subjects they portray, showing us the weight and sometimes forgotten graveness of their existence. His photographic work is accompanied by many different books and zines which in many cases point the attention to the idea of repetition and constancy of his photographic series, allowing the research to be fully presented through the publications.”

RIOT at Poppositions — Hana Miletić, Street Photography

In consequence of the War of Independence in the 1990s, followed by the global financial crisis and consequently Croatia’s membership to EU, the country’s economy has become very weak. Ongoing austerity measures and high unemployment rates have forced some Croatians to come up with creative solutions for the shortage of money in their daily lives. This mainly concerns inventing ways to bypass official fees and taxes, or means to preserve and protect previously acquired good.

Hana Miletić has focused on everyday utility objects that she considers to materialize the current economical relations in her home country. Examples are, amongst others, officious mooring bollards for ships or protective covers for car wheels. Miletić has researched the design and production process of these DIY items in order to be able to re-create and re-present them. By isolating the objects from their usual environment and by expanding them in the exhibition space their role as tokens of recession gets amplified, and we can speculate on their use value.

Jan Hoek — Me & My Models: The Golden Edition

OPENING NIGHT
THU 02.04.2015 / 18:00 — 22:00

Jan Hoek (1984) is artist and writer. Jan Hoek has photographed amateur models, mentally ill homeless people in Africa, a girl with no arms and legs, a heroin addict who dreams of being a model, or people he has simply found in advertisements on the internet. The photo shoot is never what he expected, model and photographer always have different expectations. The model actually wants sex while Jan Hoek wants to shoot the dog. The model tries to be as glamorous as possible, while Jan wants to picture the decay. Photographing is not just about the image but also the relationship between the photographer and the model. How far can you go with your models? In the accompanying film, Me & My Models, Jan talks about the nasty, funny, painful or touching things that happen around photographing people.

“I believe there is always a certain degree of ethics involved in photography. It is almost impossible to take photographs of people without consciously, or unconsciously, crossing boundaries and with things happening that you don’t want or expect. I feel this is often covered up in photography, while I would like to show it … ”

Max Pinckers — Will They Sing Like Raindrops or Leave Me Thirsty

OPENING NIGHT
12.02.15 / 18:00 — 22:00

The idea of love – in its myriad shapes and with its many meanings – has long inspired and provoked the human imagination. A central preoccupation of art, and life, it has been explored by countless artists in numerous forms and through several mediums. It is also the focus of Max Pinckers’s latest photobook Will They Sing Like Raindrops or Leave Me Thirsty that attempts to document and capture, stage and bring to life, the multiple facets of romance and marriage within a contemporary Indian context. Inspired and influenced by the paradigms of Bollywood, India’s Hindi cinema industry, these photographs offer a spectrum of scenarios that combine humour, pathos, allegory and drama to produce an elegiac and nuanced representation of the conception of love, with all its paradoxes and ironies, in India today. In a country that is constantly attempting to balance tradition and modernity, religious and secular values, the institution of marriage and the possibilities of romantic engagements are strongly bound to socio-cultural realities that are caught up in the push-and-pull of a nostalgic past and an imagined future. Pinckers’ remarkable sensitivity to the complexities of this diverse context is displayed not only through his treatment of the subject that never presumes or dictates, but also his use of kitsch as form to subtly evoke the ways in which Bollywood and related media industries inform and produce the idea of ‘love’ and what it means for a large section of young people. — Shilpa Vijayakrishnan, Tasveer Journal, India, July 2014.

Jelena Vanoverbeek – PLAKAT

OPENING NIGHT
08.01.15 / 18:00 — 22:00

Modern desire, caused by an insatiable wish-production of the individual, is a wound of reality, covered up violently by cultural industry. The conceptual-artistic practice of Jelena Vanoverbeek occupies the symbolic dimension of the images, types, text and formats that echo from the fiction screen onto reality, identifying concepts such as ‘love’, ‘happiness’, ‘death’, ‘truth’, etc.

In her artistic practice, Vanoverbeek pushes forward the subject of the artist as being an explicit signifier which operates simultaneously as a pseudonym for the Western, collective ‘I’. Her graphical expertise is the perspective from which she observes, acknowledges and appropriates the footage. This process provokes an ‘interfiction’: a vacuum where fiction folds back onto its strategy and purpose, making every work an anatomical study; a dissection of the body of a medium, a language, a symbol, a culture, an experience.

SNOR’S Dummy Date

The making of a photobook is usually a rather solitary practice. Because of that Belgian online photography magazine SNOR (www.snor.it) presents the DUMMY DATE, a cozy Sunday afternoon where they invite six photographers who are working on a photobook to discuss their book dummy in group and in the most casual way. By the end of the day, participants hopefully will go home with new insights and fresh ideas concerning selection, sequencing, design and production.

Special guest is Antwerp based photographer Debby Huysmans, who recently published Late Spring, her first book with Art Paper Editions and her third in total. From her own experience and expertise, she will look at and participate in the discussion of each one of the book projects.

Artist Talk: Geert Goiris

We are proud to present our first artist presentation with Geert Goiris. Geert Goiris will be talking about his work and his latest publication with Roma Publications. Published to coincide with the exhibition of a series of photographs by Geert Goiris at the Mauvoisin Dam (Valais, Switzerland), this sublime series of 30 images suggests a timelessness and contained restlessness through its potential narratives of place and collective memory. Labyrinthine trees, strange rock formations, contemplative figures, man-made objects and wide mountain landscapes work together to instil a sense of serenity on the observer, yet one that evokes a certain tension, a primal longing generated by the environments Goiris portrays. Included is an insightful essay by Jean-Paul Felley and Olivier Kaeser. Design: Roger Willems. Comes with an original, signed Lambda print in a limited edition of 300 copies.

GIRLS LIKE US – Issue 6, Secrets

RIOT hosts the international launch of GIRLS LIKE US Issue 6. GIRLS LIKE US is an independent journal turning the spotlight on an international expanding community of women from all genders within arts, culture and activism. Through personal stories, essays and vanguard visuals GIRLS LIKE US unfolds feminist legacies in arts and writing. Mixing politics with pleasure, the magazine is mapping new routes towards a feminist, post-gender future.

A secret can be a private space for self-creation – or a shared site of pleasure.

We explore secrets in a plethora of forms and contexts. From layered accounts of mediaeval ecstasy to the unexplored sensory experience of smell. From camouflaged play to queer readings of astrological charts and the hidden history of house music. From a very analog point of view to the outskirts of the internet.

Interviews with art critic Linda Yablonsky, scent researcher Sissel Tolaas and artist Juliana Huxtable. Artwork by Melissa Gordon, Lotte Reimann and Sara Van der Heide. Other people featured are a.o. filmmaker Chloé Robichaud, astrologist Rhea Wolf and singer Zhala Rifat, next to a hidden correspondence between writers Carson McCullers and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, a registry of pseudonyms by Riet Wijnen and much more.

Hana Miletic & Ibrahim Khayar — Tenir Paroles

parole (French): speech, utterance, voice, tone, language, word, sentence, saying; word of honour tenir sa parole: to keep one’s word 

Hana Miletić explores the experimental potential of poetry and hip hop through an ongoing collaboration with a collective of young rappers from Brussels, La Frénétick (age 17 and 18 years). Miletić has been working with La Frénétick since 2012 when she met the rappers during photographic workshops that she organized together with the non-profit organization Foyer in Molenbeek, Brussels. The outcomes of these workshops led to the previously released LP The Molem Collective, (APE#026, 2013).

The title of the brand new publication, Tenir Paroles (APE#046, 2014), considers the artistic and political potential of poetry. Departing from a background in documentary photography, Miletić started wondering whether words could also act as images. And what could the role of poetry be then in this world of appearances? The artist recalls Hannah Arendt’s thinking: that words are increasingly not just the medium in which we think, but the medium in which we live. Miletić believes that poetry can be an ally, or “a barking dog to a revolutionary reconfiguration of human society – a revolution which would destroy all social roles, that of the poet included” (quoted from a lecture by Marina Vishmidt, Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, April 2014).

In close readings of La Frénétick’s lyrics, Miletić discovered multiple poetic moments. In addition to their textual sensibility, the songs often reference a figure which can be understood as the classic cursed poet (‘le poète maudit’), the artist who lives outside of society as an outcast, such as Baudelaire, Mallarmé, Rimbaud or Verlaine.

Until recently La Frénétick had never performed live. All of the rappers’ activity happened almost exclusively online, on YouTube and Facebook. As a way of representing La Frénétick’s writing in physical form and of expanding the reading beyond a merely online temporality, Miletić started editing the original raps into a collection of poetry. Simply by bringing parts of the rappers’ lyrics to the surface, the fragments began to function as aphorisms and short poems. The editing process was done in close consultation with a co-editor, Ibrahim Khayar, who was also enrolled in the Foyer workshops and had been part of the Molem group. The poetry book Tenir Paroles, is the fruit of all of these multiple, long-term relationships.

During the opening night of Riot bookshop and gallery, Khayar and Miletić will do a collaborative reading of poetry from the publication Tenir Paroles.
