Info
The centers of an American creative industry, aware of its responsibility to make the world a better place, are located along an axis connecting New York, Chicago, and L.A. With intelligent interviews and breathtaking illustrations GOWEST! introduces sixty prominent representatives from the fields of advertising, architecture, art, design, fashion, and photography. However, artists like Terence Koh – who inspired Lady Gaga’s quote, “When I’m around Terence I just want to poop out ideas nonstop” (ArtForum) – refuse to be restricted to one sphere of interest only. GOWEST!, a brilliant realization of the theme by Meiré and Meiré, from the first to the last page offers a fascinating panorama of new horizons.

  • SYNTHETIC ELYSIUM - Aljoscha

    SYNTHETIC | ELYSIUM

    Aljoscha


    curated by Gérard A. Goodrow


    20.February - 27. March 2015


    Vernissage 20. February 19 - 21h
    Finissage    27. March 19 - 21h




    Aljoscha creates curiously organic sculptures, paintings, drawings and C-prints that are inspired by his keen insights into bioengineering and gene technology. He is fascinated by the microcosms of organic forms and translates these into highly complex, filigree and delicate works of art that defy classical categorisation.His sculptures and objects are created using thick, viscous acrylic paint, which is meticulously built up milligram by milligram, in some cases over several months, until the final form is achieved. This final form is not predetermined, but rather “emerges” on its own, as if, even in the earliest stages of its existence, the object had taken on a life and a destiny of its own. The Ukrainian artist calls his works “Bioisms”, thus emphasising their vital, organic nature. In fact, he regards each of his works as “living beings”, and thus invests these with as much dynamism, vitality and complexity as possible. According to his own utopian (and perhaps a bit tongue-in-cheek) theory of “Biofuturism”, the future will be marked by a biological revolution, following which mankind will use organic furniture, dwell in living houses and move about by means of organic spacecraft. More importantly, the artist’s studio will be akin to a biological laboratory, where the artist will create organic works of art using living substances, thus creating new forms of life. Aljoscha is a master craftsman. His rare paintings depicting complex biomorphic landscapes are often created with singlehair brushes, and his extremely fine and meticulously detailed pencil drawings, which the artist calls “Quintessences”, appear to have been made under a microscope. His computer-generated C-prints are based on a mathematical formula used to calculate and evaluate the spatial complexity of natural forms and are prime examples of the artist’s continued search for the perfect natural form, revealed and visualized with the assistance of science and mathematics.
