Entities (1994, 2012, 1911)


The series Entities of Dutch artist Ties ten Bosch consists of colour changes on the wall.
The image plays with the memory of an image; the aura and emptiness that it leaves behind, both physically as morally. The two versions in the image shown here are based upon works that have been stolen. The left one is a composition in white and red by Piet Mondriaan, stolen in 2012. The one in the right is based upon the Mona Lisa which was stolen in 1911.


Invisible Architecture

by Chrs Galarreta & Janneke van der Putten

opmaak DONDER v05 smaller.indd

Invisible Architecture explores the acoustic architecture of a tower through its surrounding sounds, subtle acoustic phenomena and the human voice. Resonances and reverberations are emphasized and prolonged through vocal interaction with sound space and not-conventional different microphone techniques.
In this project Galarreta & van der Putten want to make the acoustic reflections audible, more than the direct source that generate it. The frequencies, amplitude, modulation of sound textures, as well as the breathing voice rhythm, the position of the microphones and its types, are responding to the qualities of the chosen site and its acoustic characteristics.
This work was made this winter 2013-14 in the tower of the Centre International d’art et du paysage, Ile de Vassivière, France and was supported by the Mondriaan Fund.

The last days of Performances Invisibles

Performances Invisibles (Invisible Performances) is the third solo exhibition by conceptual artist Steve Giasson.
It is realised as part of the ‘Micro Interventions in public space’-section from the
DARE-DARE Center of Dissemination of Multidisciplinary Art, in Montreal, Canada.
The project consists of 130 performances and is staggered over a full year:
from July 7, 2015 to July 7 2016.

Performances Invisibles first took the form of performative statements, ideas of works, recorded in writing.  Although they can stand on their own, they call and describe many minimal or enigmatic gestures. Often the statements are taken from everyday life or from the history of art. They can be placed in public or in private space.

The statements are published twice a week on performancesinvisibles.dare-dare.org (French, English and Spanish), and they are shared on the DARE-DARE’s Facebook page.

Steve Giasson activates the statements. The documents surrounding these activations are available on the website. Everybody is welcome to activate these performative statements at any time (also after July 7) and without prior authorization. If you do so, you are kindly requested to send any form of documentation. It will be added to the corresponding statements.
