The Universal Now: Vintage Book Plate Collages

Nearly two years ago, we looked at examples of exploring layers of the present through images of the past in Photographic Time Machine. In The Universal Now, UK artist Abigail Reynolds takes this approach to an entirely new, more conceptually elaborate and aesthetically sophisiticated level. She collects vintage tourist guides, then search for photographs taken from a similar vantage point and printed at similar scale. Artist of the week 80: Idris Khan. You'd be forgiven for not realising Idris Khan's photos were actually photos at all.

Artist of the week 80: Idris Khan

With their accretions of smudgy black marks, they look more like hand-rendered charcoal drawings than flat snaps realised at the push of a button. Get up close, though, and the thick black lines dissolve into a spore-like buildup of words or musical notes. His images are composites built from layered sheets of music, book pages, paintings or other photographs that seem to squeeze journeys in time – like reading or hearing music – into a single picture. Every … Stave of Frederick Chopin's Nocturnes For the Piano (2004), for instance, is just what its title claims. The music sheets are photographed and manipulated on a computer by Khan to become a lone image whose blurred hieroglyphs seem to convulse.

In fact, although the 31-year-old London-based artist was awarded the Photographer's Gallery prize in 2004, he doesn't consider himself a photographer. Idris Khan. Born in 1978, Birmingham Lives and works in London, England 2010Idris Khan: Last 3 Piano Sonatas . . . after Franz Schubert, I.D.E.A.

As visual storytellers, we look for new ways to tell a story, ways that can make the viewer look at the world—and perceive time—differently. We look for things that make you take a second glance. Homepage - Marlene Dumas. Exhibition Review: Being Singular Plural. Introduction Being Singular Plural, running until June 6 at the Guggenheim in Manhattan, was first staged at the Deutsche Guggenheim in 2010.1 Funded by Deutsche Bank and curated by Sandhini Poddar (a native of India and Assistant Curator of Asian Art at the Guggenheim in New York1) the exhibit features “recent and new film, video, and sound-based works by seven of the most innovative and visionary contemporary artists, filmmakers, and media practitioners living and working in India today,” according to the museum guide.1 I learned while scanning the Guggenheim’s website that the exhibit takes its name from an essay and book by French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy,2 and that is what first caught my attention.

Extending Arts Practice - Maharashtra - 2006-07Grant Period: One year Shumona Goel has been making short personal films on 35mm and 16mm film formats for several years now. Her main concern has been the exploration of issues of displacement and migration. Description: This grant supports Shumona’s project Family Tree––a film installation, for public space––which will enable her to extend her current practice and deconstruct the film form as she moves from single screen to multiple screens.

A family tree is a map people use to locate themselves in history. They draw branches to forge links to ancestors or roots and subsequently assume that family members share similar traits. For Family Tree, Shumona intends on using source materials that are not literal, but expressive. Susan Hiller. Susan Hiller: The J. Street Project. In 2002, Susan Hiller was invited to Berlin for an artist’s residency. Walking around the city, she was startled to encounter a street sign bearing the name Judenstrasse (Jews’ Street). She found the sign strangely ambiguous.

It was meant to commemorate the Jewish community that once inhabited the area, but for Hiller it marked instead a history of discrimination and violence. Housed Memory.
