ARTIST VIDEO SERIES 2014
Watch the series of inspiring interviews featuring six artists whose works are exhibited at VOLTA10. The presentation features artists Melanie Bonajo, Kadar Brock, Peter Funch, Anthony Goicolea, Patrick Jacobs, and Todd Pavlisko.
MELANIE BONAJO //
presented by AKINCI, Amsterdam
Booth Number B6
Captivated by concepts of the divine, Melanie Bonajo explores the spiritual emptiness of her generation through photographs, performances, and films. She questions our shifting relationship with nature and tries to understand existential questions by looking at our domestic situation and changes to humanity at large. Her installations place the viewer firmly within an 'active' role.
KADAR BROCK //
presented by The Hole, New York
Booth Number C16
Brooklyn-based abstraction alchemist Kadar Brock approaches his paintings as objects themselves, sanding and abrading them and extracting colorful remnants from old canvases as surface materials and activated media toward new works. His process of creation, deletion, recycling, and renewal achieves results that blur the line between painting and sculpture, waste and reward.
PETER FUNCH //
presented by V1 Gallery, Copenhagen
Booth Number B10
Peter Funch has established himself as a very respected contemporary art photographer. He just had his second solo exhibition at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, and simultaneously his work is to be experienced as part of the Danish Pavilion at the World EXPO in Shanghai.
ANTHONY GOICOLEA //
presented by Beers Contemporary, London
Booth Number D16
Anthony Goicolea continues to push his fantastic photographic tableaux, maneuvering from the wildly complex multiple self-portraits that he perfected in the previous decade to conceptual territories of displacement and alienation in unpopulated hybrid landscapes.
PATRICK JACOBS //
presented by Pierogi, New York
Booth Number B7
Patrick Jacobs intentionally blurs boundaries between the traditional artistic media of painting, sculpture and photography in his works. At the same time, they present the viewer with a spatial and perceptual conundrum; we are drawn into a space at once determinate and infinite, natural and contrived, prosaic and otherworldly.
TODD PAVLISKO //
presented by Samsøñ, Boston
Booth Number B13
For Todd Pavlisko's solo exhibition at the Cincinnati Art Museum titled Crown, the artist was granted permission from the City Council of Cincinnati and the museum to create a work within the museum with a sniper firing into a site specific sculpture. His work has been included in exhibition at the Bass Museum (forthcoming), Samsøñ, the Robert Miller Gallery, the Museum of Art & Design and the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center. His work is in the collection of the Museum of Art & Design and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
