5. Ron Athey, FF Alumn, at Chelsea Theatre, London, England, April 24-May 2

Incorruptible Flesh (Perpetual Wound)
Chelsea Theatre, London

Part of Sacred: A Season of New Live Art
24-27 April and 1-2 May 2007
8pm. Tickets £12 (£8)

In a collaborative performance, Ron Athey and Dominic Johnson explore Self-Obliteration, Inner Pigginess, and Mystical Grandiosity. Starting with a palate of ideas about sex, death and sparkle, the myth of Philoctetes is transplanted into the California deserts in the heat of August, creating rituals of transubstantiation in magickal excess.

Ron Athey and Lawrence Steger began researching the collaborative performance, Incorruptible Flesh, in 1996. Like wax dummy saints blessed with the miracle of inviolate bodies, there was much injecting and powdering to be done to fight off corrosion. The morbidity was driven by the shared, long-term HIV+ status of Athey and Steger - healthy and sick, respectively. In 2006, Steger now dead, Athey and Johnson continue the collaborative process, based around the myth of the perpetual wound.

Death Valley, population 9. Endurance and delirium at 56.7 degrees celsius, making salt flats into variations on creeping hope. Parched skins threaten to match the shattered surface: destituted, then blowing away. The body's drip system would melt a hole through the salt floor, worn out bodies peering into the grave, to listen. Once, less mindful of the harsher realities of things, there was only sex, and love, and bright lights. Now not to be consoled, two bodies at other ends of the earth are moving together, in times for which there is no sun.

8. Helene Aylon, FF Alumn, at Jewish Museum of Vienna, opening May 15

Here is information from the seres of photographic Self Portraits  that Helene Aylon, FF Alumn, is showing at the Jewish Museum of Vienna.  It opens May 15 to November 18, 2007.

Event start time -Opening reception: 7PM General viewing hours: Sunday-Friday 10AM- 6PM
Event type discipline- Visual Art

Title of Event- Beste Aller Frauen

Event Description: The efforts by orthodox and non-orthodox women to redefine their roles in the Jewish religion from 1936 to the present. In Jessica Dawson's words in The Washington Post, " the ultimate power of Aylon's art derives not from religion itself but from Aylon's relationship to it. Her work comes from a personal, and deeply felt, double-bind: Here she speaks out against the very beliefs that form her own identity, beliefs she still holds dear - even as they infuriate her."

Name of venue: Jewish Museum of Vienna/Judisches Museum Wien
Address: Palais Eskele, Orotheergasse 11
Vienna, A1010, Austria

9. Billy X. Curmano, FF Alumn, at Open Book Center, Minneapolis, April 29, 1 pm

Billy X. Curmano will be a featured reader in the Prism Series of the Open Book Center, 1011 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN on April 29 at 1:00 p.m. It's likely to be a performative reading from his small press publications, Solo Set Chap Book and performance journals.

On April 29th, Billy X. Curmano and e.g. bailey will be featured readers in the Open Book Center’s “Prism Series”. The Sunday afternoon session begins at 1 p.m. in their Coffee Gallery at 1011 Washington Avenue South Minneapolis. - But, simply reading could be an understatement as both men are award winning interdisciplinary artists.

Billy X. Curmano has long been recognized for eccentric performances such as being buried alive for three days, fasting in Death Valley for 40 and swimming the entire length of the Mississippi River as performance and environmental statement. He traveled to the Arctic Circle entirely on public transportation to get a little closer look at global warming.

e.g. bailey is an acclaimed actor, writer, poet, playwright and producer. He’s a founding member of Sirius B, a black male performance collective, an original member of the writer’s collective Spine and a founding member of the @rkology music and spoken word collective.

Curmano’s appearance will be a mostly spoken word event concentrating on writings from his performance journals and small press editions. Several of these publications, like “What to Wear to Meet your Maker” and all back issues of “The Fandango”, were recently acquired by New York City’s Museum of Modern Art Library.

Billy X. often uses unusual instruments to color his words. He won a Just Plain Folks Experimental Album Award last year for the compact disc that accompanied his “Solo Set Chap Book”. Both readers have worked extensively with jazz. There are sure to be some players in the house.

All the best,
Billy X.

10. Sonia Balassanian, FF Alumn, at Venice Biennale, June 10-Nov 21

Pavilion of Republic of Armenia
at 52nd Venice Biennale-2007

June 10 – November 21, 2007
Opening for press and friends:
Friday June 8, 2007 13:00-16:00
Palazzo Zenobio, (Collegio Armeno)
Dorsoduro 2596 T: +041 522-8770
Vaporetto No. 82: S. Basilio stop
Vaporetto No. 52: Zattere stop

Artist: Sonia Balassanian
Curator: Nina Möntmann
Honorary Commissioner: Jean Boghossian
Organized by: The Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art
Hosted by: The Mekhitarian Armenian Congregation

Sonia Balassanian-Who Is the Victim?

War has changed. It has ceased to refer exclusively to war between nations, but involves more complex structures and dislocations. The information content the ubiquitous media images convey concerning specific conflicts is thin, they present an unchanging picture of misery as a universal constant of global crisis.

Memory assumes a central role in the lives of people who experience war and henceforth shift between two extremes, the collective necessity to remember and the individual desire to forget. For those who have experienced war or live in fear of one, or who live with memories of a war they actually took part in and survived, the question “who is the victim” is never far from the surface in depictions of war’s cruelty. But what is involved when a viewer of war images takes an interest in or empathizes with human suffering in far-off conflict zones? Not only those killed by war and their relatives are the victims, but all whom the fear of war afflicts. Compassion is an unstable emotion: “Our sympathy proclaims our innocence as well as our impotence” (Susan Sontag). In overcoming sympathy, a potential for action is released, a potential to lead-in to critical protest against an economy of global war.

Wars and crisis areas are a constant feature of Sonia Balassanian’s work. Her concern in her more recent video works are the ramifications of a general war (albeit never referred to as such) being waged against the individual. The images of Balassanian’s multipart video work “Who Is the Victim?” for the Pavilion of the Republic of Armenia at the 52nd Venice Biennale tap into this universalized misery and suffering of war.
--Nina Möntmann

Sonia Balassanian (b. 1942) is one of the most influential artists in Armenia, working in the fields of video, performance, photo-collage and writing. She lives in New York and Yerevan.

The Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art is publishing an artist’s book by Rene Gabri on Sonia Balassanian on the occasion of this project. It is also producing an accompanying Pavilion Catalogue.

12. Tim Miller, FF Alumn, Spring 2007 newsletter

TIM MILLER SPRING NEWSLETTER- ENGLAND TOUR-- LONDON PERFS-- BIRMINGHAM - PHILLY

Hi All!

Lots is happening this Spring! My new book 1001 BEDS has been nominated as the Best Book in the Drama category from the Lambda Literary Foundation, the big queer literary awards in the US. The awards will be announced May 31 in NYC. I was also very happy 1001 BEDS just got the best solo award from Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle in SF!

I'll head off to England in May and June!   I will be doing my new show 1001 Beds in London the Drill Hall June 9-17.

http://www.drillhall.co.uk/pl270.html
The performance ends up with a long story about a very important bed in my life  in London. Bed 241 at the Adelphi Hotel in South Kensington where my partner Alistair and I first decamped to when we met in 1994! 

If you are around  London come by or send pals to the fabulous Drill Hall!

When I first get to England I will be directing a workshop performance project in Birmingham UK for the amazing Fierce Festival. I will be making a queer men's site specific piece on the canals.

http://www.fiercetv.co.uk/index.php?controller=event&mm_action=view&id=119

Now...as for the canals. I am obsessed with canals (I live in Venice, California after all!) They are a prime queered space in Birmingham and they are the most extensive canal system on earth. The Birmingham project is especially exciting. I will be devising a queer men's project on the canals of Birmingham as a historically charged psychic space of community and erotics. Take a journey down under along the canal! This site specific ensemble performance will explore in real time and space the queer psychic and sexual flow of the canals of Birmingham. Embarking from the Brindley Place canal boat dock, CANAL ZONE will chart the ways queer life is inscribed along the wet paths of Birmingham’s canals. Miller, who directed earlier gay men’s performance projects for FIERCE SUCK, SPIT, CHEW, SWALLOW and LIE BACK AND THINK OF BIRMINGHAM will invite the witnesses for his unique promenade performance to consider the movement and exchange of bodies, goods and fluids along the paths and wet ways of the canals. The site specific promenade performance will take place on June 3 at 7PM.

I fly home from London to LA for five minutes after the run at the Drill hall June 9-17 and zap right back to Philadelphia for the Gay & Lesbian Theater Festival where I will be performing my show "Us" June 24-25.

Hope to see you in London, Birmingham or Philly!

cheers, Tim

13. Sonja Hindkjaer, FF Alumn, at Second Space Gallery, London, opening May 3

It is with great pleasure I invite you to this private view of my exhibition

“Paintings of Darkness and Light”
“Sometimes in life you lie in the darkness, dreaming about light.
Other times the light is so strong that you prefer darkness.”

3rd of May 2007 6.30-9.30pm

artist@hindkjaer.com www.hindkjaer.com

The exhibition is open 3rd - 20th of May 2007 Daily 12-6pm

I was born in 1958 on a farm in the countryside near Silkeborg, Denmark, the youngest of four children. My childhood was under the spell of colours that caught my eyes and soul during the many hours of labour in the fields. Watching the sun playing with the clouds, raindrops glinting on leaves, the warm bodies of the cows during milking, partly formed my natural talent as an artist.

My art evolve from the turmoil of events and emotions I encounter on my way through life. Like a symbiosis of organic cells interacting with mine, tales of the past and the future arise. The colours are my lovers, the sun my happiness, the moon my secret. I have become a house of glass for others to see through to another level.

I cannot define or analyse my world of art, since I do not understand it completely myself, even after 30 years of painting!

Creating for me is not a wish, but a desire from within, it is my lifelong love affair. I hope you will sense the spell too, in your own way, while watching my visions transferred to reality.

14. Kimsooja, FF Member, at Kewenig Galerie, Cologne, opening April 20, and more

Kimsooja’s upcoming solo exhibitions include:
Kewenig Galerie

Koln/ Palma de Mallorca

Appellhofplatz 21 D-50667 Cologne Germany

Mumbai: A Laundry Field
April 21 th through June 23 th, 2007

OPENING: April 20 th, 7:00 - 9:00pm

After presenting the impressive installation of the Bottari Truck in her exhibition Bottari Cologne 2005, Kimsooja will now show her latest work at Kewenig Galerie. The 3 channel video projection Mumbai: A Laundry Field was created in the Indian city of Mumbai, former Bombay, in recent months, as a continuity of her series of A Laundry Woman.

In one of the three-channel projections, the camera takes the viewer through the alleyways of various slums of Mumbai. The living conditions that prevail in the different slums have their own structure, as well as their own specific religious communities. Though in some quarters Hindus, Muslims and Christians live in the same community, the parallelism of the different cultures remain. You find slums in which human dignity seems to be irrelevant and in which people, obviously ignored and abandoned by the rest of society, dwell - some living in cots - amidst the stench of trash and waste of bad plumbing systems. But even these areas appeal to the foreign visitor aesthetically, because of their colourful laundry hanging on walls and in narrow alleys. They are perceived as places that are - though inhuman conditions predominate - affected by zest for life.

The middle projection shows the washers of the quarter of Dhobighat at work. Water sprays vibrantly while the brightly coloured laundry is scrubbed, splashed, and dried. Even the washing place itself, which was created during colonial rule and demonstrates the hardship of the workers in Dhobighat seems to be filled with festive colours. The chore of the washer, the cleaning of other people's clothes, is relegated to the lowest class of people in the Indian caste system. It seems as if the washers - by tossing the laundry - are at pains to purify their own Karma. The sound of their heavy breathing appears to emphasize this impression.

The scene on the right screen shows a commuter train running through Mumbai, crammed-full with people. The travellers also sit on the train roofs and articulated axles in-between the wagons. Allegorically, the scene conveys the everyday struggle for life of these people. While the clothes of the rail travellers flutter in the wind and correspond visually with the drying laundry of the adjacent projections in a magnificent way, the viewer still poses the burdensome question concerning aesthetic value and fate of the individual in this society.

The images of the video work Mumbai: A Laundry Field have a direct and powerful impact. It's energy enchants and consternates at the same time. A conflict emerges from the consciousness that the viewer comes to question on the reality and it's hardships of tragedy and poverty, even violence, compared to the rich and colorful visual information and experience - obviously detached from reality - that embodies it's aesthetic value and quality.

La Fabrica Galeria

Alameda 9, 28014 Madrid Spain

A Wind Woman
April 19 th through May 27 th, 2007

OPENING: April 19 th, 8:00 - 10:00pm

The exhibition consists of the video piece A Wind Woman, and six unique prints generated from a series of still images from the same video.

Kimsooja presents a video that she shot during a hillside drive in Honolulu, Hawaii. The artist opened the camera shutter for an extended period of time, enhancing the light exposure and allowing the exterior world to flood into the pictorial field. In this group of works, Kimsooja was particularly interested in the interstitial space where the trees and sky meet. This enabled her to transform realistic imagery into abstract paintings and to continue her personal investigation into the blurring of category boundaries.

Kimsooja places the emphasis on the in-between space where the trees and sky meet, transforming the landscape into abstract paintings of immense vitality and beauty. The artist plays with different frequencies and a rich colour palette. The main theme is the existential reality of things, while the concepts that fuel her work are bound up with the nature of life and art.

And Kim sooja’s upcoming and on going exhibitions include:

18. Sonya Rapoport, FF Alumn, in Seville, Spain, May 3-Sept2

Sonya Rapoport will be exhibiting the science related work on her web site in BIOS 4, an international art/science exhibition curated by António Cerveira-Pinto of Lisbon, Portugal, for the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Seville, Spain. The selected works to be shown by Rapoport are "Arbor Erecta", "Redeeming the Gene", "The Transgenic Bagel", and "Smell your Destiny."

BIOS 4   presents a broad view of biotech art, including its relations with the human body, nano-entities, environmental issues, artificial life and robots. The scope of this project is historical as well as conceptual and informative. Cerveira-Pinto intends to create an anthological view on this emerging art field which is part of the cognitive art vortex, the real new thing in post-contemporary culture. Post-contemporary art entities are basically cognitive in the way that they both need knowledge fuel to evolve and intelligent viewers to interact.
