CARLOS AGUIRRE | Metagraphs

These mysterious collages by Carlos Aguirre — a seminal artist of conceptual art in Mexico — are constructed with photographic fragments and design materials recalling his large installations or his early graphic work from the 90’s. 

Domestic-sized and encapsulated-installations are the portrait of a whole made with fragments of times and spaces. In them: leaves and buildings are intertwined in different planes and scales to generate an hybrid ecosystem between the natural and the digital, the classic and the contemporary, the flat and the voluminous.

Aguirre subvert the discipline from within, this exceptional series in his career is the result of intimate observations only possible during historic times of confinement with the offing echo of a metaverse’s scaffolding being built.

Carlos Aguirre. Acapulco, 1948. Industrial Designer with a master's degree from the School of Art and Design in London, UK; he represented Mexico at the Art Biennales of Paris 1982, São Paulo 1985 and 1998. A recipient of the Guggenheim fellowship, he is a dean professor at Mexico’s Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana.

His career as a visual artist includes painting, sculpture, installation and photography, characterized by the constant search of new languages, the questioning of disciplines boundaries, the experimentation with materials and techniques as well as politics and Mexican history.

His work has been shown around the world. In 2015, the National Museum of Modern Art of Mexico organized him the individual retrospective: "Risk Zone" curated by art historian Pilar García, University Museum of Contemporary Art, MUAC-UNAM. 

Aguirre is a Member of the National System of the Arts of Mexico. Currently he is preparing a retrospective book and exhibition of his work edited by National University of Mexico UNAM.

EDOUARD TAUFENBACH & BASTIEN POURTOUT | Le Bleu du Ciel 

“March 2020. The Eternal City; Rome is deserted, confined. Only four artists roam the Villa Médici in a foremost deep artistic confinement. Among them, the photography artists Edouard Taufenbach and Bastien Pourtout observe in this unprecedented episode of suspended time: the gradual arrival of the swallows. Intrigued by these birds —which do not exist in the wild but only in human coexistence— they decide to capture their flight, a movement of freedom both in this unprecedented period and forever. 

Above the Villa Médici’s fence, the moments stolen from these great migrants follow one another, sometimes cropped, blurred or detailed in what looks like a monochromatic sky, but the intense lavender blue turns to taupe, gold or fiery orange. The colors of the sky come as a call to better observe the granularity of our world. 

The intermittent sequencing of the circular flight of the swallows with swirling movements of repetitive music, circulates and embraces the works”. 

Sara Huhounenq, Beaux Arts Magazine, Paris.

 

Le Bleu du Ciel by Taufenbach and Pourtout was awarded with the Swiss Life Award 2021 and has been exhibited in Arles, Bordeaux & Galerie Nationale Jeu de Paume de Paris. ALMANAQUE has proudly presented the series at Zona Maco Mexico City and Photo London before this special feature for Unseen Amsterdam.

Edouard Taufenbach et Bastien Pourtout. France, 1988 & 1982. Taufenbach is  Master in Arts & Digital Media and Bachelor in Cinema by La Sorbonne (FR). Pourtout is Master in Photography & Contemporary Art by Paris VIII – Saint-Denis FR and Master in Social History at Paris X – Nanterre (FR).

During the 2020’s confinement Taufenbach started to work in duo with Pourtout after winning the pioneer artistic residence La Villa Medici in Rome, where they created Le Bleu du Ciel, winning afterwards with the resulting series the Swiss Life Award for Contemporary Art 2021.

Taufenbach’s is a guest artist at UAL: Camberwell College of Arts, and participated in the group exhibition Moving The Image. In February 2020, ALMANAQUE showed Taufenbach's work in the exhibition Mirage, curated by Arturo Delgado. The same year his book L’Image dans le miroir edited by Maison L'Artier Paris. They have exhibited in national museums and international shows.

ROMAN SCHRAMM |  Große Soße | Patch Match

In the Große Soße series, extremely detailed photos of different liquids (shower gel, egg yolk, yogurt) and aluminum foil are interwoven in this large scale representations. Due to their physical presence, different depth effects and an intriguing conceptual approach, the resulting images are a peculiar hybrid of conceptual painting and digital image making.

The series Patch Match is based on the production of papier-mâché panels which variations in colors, forms and textures then tangled to create an uncanny and confusing backdrop for objects like a chair, a cucumber, coins or bottles playing in a scaleless landscape. 

Photography is central in Roman Schramm’s artistic practice. Often oriented towards the playful, his practice resembles more that of a painter, sculptor or an installation artist than that of a photographer – objects are formed, pieced together, found, meticulously edited in Photoshop or 3D programs and then staged in new ways. 

Since 2019 part of the process is a dialogue with an algorithm with unique results. This new way to arrange an image which fools both the eye and the body, is not only a change of production but of perception. It ́s connected with a transitional reconfiguration of affective embodiment itself. 

Roman Schramm (born 1979 in Germany, lives in Berlin) studied at the University of Fine Arts of Hamburg (HFBK). Awarded with the German Photobook Prize for his publication Tomaten he is a visual artist, photographer, editor and publisher of the magazine SKULPI. 

Roman has received national grants and the Berlin residency in Istanbul 2019-20. His practice gained international attention with solo and collective shows at Schleuse, Vienna (2021/solo), Aedt, Düsseldorf (2019/solo), Beers gallery, London (2019/solo), Kunsthaus Jesteburg (2016/solo) Barlach Halle K (2016/solo), Museum Sinclair Haus (2020) Bad Homburg, Kunsthalle Lingen (2018), On Stellar Rays NYC (2016), Centro de la imagen Mexico City (2016), KW Berlin (2015), Svetlana NYC (2015), Klemm´s, Berlin (2015), Frutta gallery Rome (2013), James Fuentes NYC (2013). 

His work is part of the collection of the Federal Republic of Germany and many private collections. His work was published in the magazines fotograf, Camera Austria, Frieze d/e, Monopol, artist, Dare and Art.
