ABOUT THE WORK

What happens before and around a performance, and how might those mechanics be considered part of the act? Cally Spooner uses performance as a semiotic tool for processing the languages of the body, labor, and creative production. In each of these languages, there are specific grammars, systems of measurement, and collaborations between producers and receivers. Spooner’s works disrupt and closely examine the product of performance, whether this might result in an item, a thought or an effect. Though most of her performances might begin with a script or rehearsal, they typically hover in the space of becoming—finding traction, dissolving, mounting tension, and waiting. With a distinctive amalgam of theoretical research, pop music, current affairs, and corporate rhetoric, Spooner considers how dematerialized and unmediated performance can inhabit the worlds of extreme visibility in today’s entertainment and attention economies.

 

For Sequences, Spooner presents On False Tears and Outsourcing; musicians audition in public to become a manufactured band, in Iceland(2017), a new chapter in an ongoing series in which she gathers musicians to create a hit pop song. In Iceland, Spooner will conduct an audition for the pop band “False Tears,” who will eventually be selected and record the hit song, NAH NAH NAH!. Exploring the corporate manufacture of pop music, with examples ranging from the German 1990s R&B band Milli Vanilli to bands marketed for a teenage audience such as *NSYNC in the US or the Spice Girls in the UK, Spooner highlights the demarcation that exists in these context between creative output (the song) and the image of a related product (the band). In July 2015, Spooner worked with five musicians at Vleeshal in the Netherlands to write the song based on a chain of emails between herself, the musicians, lawyers, and corporate executives. She then worked with Lafayette Anticipation in Paris to gather a group of professional musicians and singers to participate in the recording of the song. In Iceland, Spooner will assemble the “face” or image of the band, through auditions hosted at Mengi for the “freshest talent.” These chosen individuals will participate in a band photoshoot for the album cover. The panel of judges for this selection process will echo those in scripted reality television shows where accomplished celebrities with outsized personalities ‘who know what it takes to be the next pop superstar’ pass judgment on the less-well-known and the unproven.

Moving Off the Land / Joan Jonas & María Huld Markan í Tjarnarbíói

Sequences myndlistarhátíð kynnir með stolti og ánægju einstakan viðburð eftir bandarísku myndlistarkonuna Joan Jonas, í samstarfi við íslenska tónskáldið Maríu Huld Markan.

Viðburðurinn verður haldinn í Tjarnarbíói þann 8. október klukkan 20.00.

Hægt er að nálgast miða hér á www.tix.is

Auk verks síns í Tjarnarbíó opnar Jonas, Does the Mirror Make the Picture, yfirgripsmikla sýningu í Nýlistasafninu á úrval verka frá mismunandi tímabilum ferils hennar.

Sýning Jonas í Nýlistasafninu opnar föstudaginn 6. október á fyrsta degi hátíðarinnar og stendur til 10. desember 2017.

Jonas (f. 1936, New York) er frumkvöðull á sviði vídeólistar. Síðan á sjötta áratugnum hefur hún skapað nýstárleg verk í ólíkum miðlum sem rannsaka tímatengt skipulag og pólitískt mikilvægi áhorfandans. Í verkum sínum blandar Jonas saman ólíkum miðlum og listformum, líkt og leikhúsi, dansi, hljóði, texta, teikningum, skúlptúr, vídeó og myndvörpun. Í nýrri vídeóverkum, gjörningum og innsetningum hefur Jonas gjarnan starfað með tónlistarmönnum og dönsurum, ásamt því að leita til bókmennta og goðsagna í marglaga rannsóknarvinnu sinni.

María Huld Markan Sigfúsdóttir (f. 1980) fiðluleikari og tónskáld hefur farið um víðan völl tónlistarinnar. Hún útskrifaðist frá Tónlistarskólanum í Reykjavík árið 2000 og frá Listaháskóla Íslands með BA-gráðu í tónsmíðum árið 2007. Auk þess að sinna tónsmíðum hefur María Huld verið meðlimur í hljómsveitinni amiinu til margra ára og með henni ferðast heimshorna á milli og flutt tónlist í ýmsum myndum.

Joan Jonas er jafnframt heiðurslistamaður Sequences VIII sem fer fram í áttunda sinn víðsvegar um Reykjavík.

Sequences myndlistarhátíð er tíu daga tvíæringur sem haldin er í Reykjavík dagana 6.–15. október 2017. Hún er nú haldin í 8. skipti en markmið hátíðarinnar er að sýna framsækna myndlist með áherslu á tímatengda miðla; gjörninga, hljóðverk, vídeólist og myndlist í almenningsrými.

Sýningarstjóri Sequences VIII er Margot Norton, sýningarstjóri við New Museum í New York og býður hátíðin upp á framúrskarandi úrval verka eftir ýmsa listamenn og tónlistarmenn.

Does the Mirror Make the Picture

Does the Mirror Make the Picture

Sequences proudly presents Does the Mirror Make the Picture, a solo exhibition by Joan Jonas, at The Living Art Museum on the occasion of Sequences art festival eight edition.

Since the late 1960s, Joan Jonas (b. 1936, New York) has created groundbreaking multidisciplinary works that investigate time-based structures and the politics of spectatorship. Her projects often simultaneously incorporate elements of theater, dance, sound, text, drawing, sculpture, and video projection. They rely on alternate identities, narrative symbols and threads, but they also refuse linearity, privileging instead the doubled and fractured tale.

A pioneer of video art, Jonas began using the Portapak video system in 1970 to explore the shifts that occur from the camera to the projection to the body and the space of the live action. For her recent videos, performances, and installations, Jonas has frequently collaborated with musicians and dancers and has drawn from literary sources and mythic tales in realizing her multi-layered explorations.

Jonas’ exhibition will include a selection of works from throughout her career, from her early videos Wind (1968) and Song Delay (1973) to stream or river or flight or pattern (2016/2017), a project that she conceived on recent travels to Venice, Singapore, Nova Scotia, and Vietnam.

Jonas will also present a performance at Tjarnarbíó Cinema on Sunday, October 8, featuring a new collaboration with Icelandic composer and musician María Huld Markan.
