“When Madness Meets Hunger” at the Studio 26 Gallery (June 10-July 3, 2016)

From the series: The Blind Owl Meets the Hunger Artist.

East Village’s favorite Studio 26 Gallery which is located in the Eastvillager building on East 3rd St. between Avenues A and B, is exhibiting a spectacular series, “When Madness Meets Hunger,” by artist Aphrodite Désirée Navab. Navab’s latest work is an ongoing series of ink drawings where she imagines an invented encounter between the protagonist of Iranian writer Sadeq Hedayat’s novella, The Blind Owl and the protagonist of Czech writer Franz Kafka’s short story, “The Hunger Artist.”

At the opening on June 10th, Navab gave an artist talk where she shared her concepts for this series, her artistic practice and creative process, and took questions from the audience: “I do weeks of research for my art, collecting primary sources,” says Navab. “For this series, I re-read Hedayat’s novella The Blind Owl, and I re-read Kafka’s “The Hunger Artist.” I read secondary sources, examining and critiquing their work. I read historical sources on the Czech republic and Austria during Kafka’s time and Iran during Hedayat’s time, then researched the internet for photographs of the writers from birth until death…It is no accident that Hedayat translated several of Kafka’s works into Farsi.” Metaphors, allegories and themes are explored of the artists in voluntary exile, the nature of performance art, the real and the ideal, rituals of insanity, the existential crises of the artists and their autobiographical narratives. A video of the opening and artist talk will be released during this week.

The exhibition is on view until July 3rd. We encourage everyone who is visiting NYC or walking through the East village to visit this fascinating exhibition and see, closely, the work of Aphrodite Désirée Navab.

“Her art is the aching inquiry of an uprooted consciousness seeking new roots.” – Collector of this series and NY Times #1 Best Seller author Reza Aslan of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth (2013).

Beatrice Scaccia | Call the Bluff

May 5 – June 11, 2016

Aways interested on randomness and repetitivity, as an expression of human existentiality, Scaccia’s most recent work develops her personal investigation of identity, awareness and inauthentic existence, displaying characters suspended in a state of indecision between the mutual interaction or resistance, frozen in the incompleteness of their actions.

Born and raised in a solid painting background, Scaccia’s study of the human figures reports elements of Renaissance and late Eighteenth Century. A fragmented story emerges through the almost “frame by frame” sequence of Scaccia’s work, expressing the idea that repetition can also create a sense of instability. In her work identities, genders and ages are lost behind oversized coats, striped patterns and futile but unavoidable and unpredictable movements.

Scaccia’s work has often been described as “ frames loaded with movement, coming from a missing film” and yet in these canvases, for the first time, there is a richer and more layered composition. It is like being in front of some overturned tableaux vivants where a group of overwhelmed performers are blocked in their movements and in their delusion-illusion of coexisting.

Through a fresh and original approach, Call the Bluff reveals the unsubstantial, the unreality, the vacuum, and the pantomime.

Paintings, drawings, sketches are accompanied by an installation of ceramics by Japanese artist Toshiaki Noda.

Hauser & Wirth will debut its Portable Art Project with an exhibition of wearable objects commissioned from fifteen artists – works that exist somewhere between sculpture and bodily adornment. Organized by Celia Forner, who collaborated closely with the artists, the Portable Art Project includes unique pieces as well as editioned series, crafted from an array of materials ranging from traditional gold and silver with precious and semi-precious gems, to enamel, aluminum, bronze, and iron. The initiative began with an invitation to Louise Bourgeois, who in 2008 conceived different spiral-like precious metal cuffs. In the years since Bourgeois designed these first contributions, the Portable Art Project has evolved to include John Baldessari, Phyllida Barlow, Stefan Brüggemann, Subodh Gupta, Mary Heilmann, Andy Hope 1930, Cristina Iglesias, Matthew Day Jackson, Bharti Kher, Nate Lowman, Paul McCarthy, Caro Niederer, Michele Oka Doner, and Pipilotti Rist
