Frederik De Wilde - 14 November 2014 - 21 February 2015 Carroll / Fletcher is pleased to present the first UK showing of NanoBlck-Sqr #1, a work by Belgian artist Frederik De Wilde. Created with a nano-engineered material developed in collaboration with NASA and Rice University, NanoBlck-Sqr #1 comprises a material so dark that it absorbs practically all visible light. The artwork is made from carbon nanotube bundles “grown” in a laboratory, as in NASABlck-Crcl #1, and then applied to an aluminium canvas by the artist. Yves Klein worked with chemists to create his now iconic International Klein Blue to offer, as he put it, an “open window to freedom as the possibility of being immersed in the immeasurable existence of colour”.

Histoire de l’art HR Giger is probably best known for his creature which was brought to life in the franchise of Alien films. But for almost 50 years Giger has been producing artwork and has established himself as one of the word’s best Fantastic Realism artists. Born in 1940 in Chur Switzerland he know resides in Zurich Switzerland. But JustSayGo’s television host and travel journalist Ron Stern caught up with Giger at his bar in Gruyeres Switzerland. The artist is not known for giving many interviews, especially on camera, which is what makes the exclusive interview so special. Vdrome Vdrome is an online platform that offers regular, high quality screenings of films and videos directed by visual artists and filmmakers, whose production lies in-between contemporary art and cinema. Each screening is presented during a limited period, as in a movie theatre. Vdrome makes available a program of exceptional artists's films and videos that are selected due to their importance, quality and innovative strength, many of which are only shown in the context of film festivals, exhibitions or specific surveys, being therefore of very limited access. Vdrome is an initiative conceived and promoted by Mousse. Vdrome is kindly supported by Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative for the year 2016.
