Group Show

Bildbeschreibung


Lisbon 19. OKT. 2017


A commentary on the Art worlds tendency to “Pigeonhole” artists assigning them a style and encouraging them to work in a restricted framework that favors branding and sales rather than experimentation and risk taking.

In this show the artists works is not bound to a method, challenging expectations by pairing installation, video, design, performance and painting together. Each artist may cross from one discipline to the other creating a web of work that relies less on self identification but instead as a collective installation. Artworks will reside indoors and outdoors simultaneously for this event creating an open ended creative experience that flows freely through spaces and emphasizes there collective goal to not be “Pigeonholed”.

The Order of Sounds 

(Sound of the Environmentand the Fractality 

of the City)



My current project is concerned with the exploration and presentation of the mathematical and physical qualities of sound. The work expresses itself in multiple fields of art, traditional and contemporary, including soundand visual art, painting and sculpture. Thus, the visualization of sounds and the sound itself that dwells at the limit of the audible spectrum create a highly aestheticized environment that opens unto the viewer.


In principle my projects center on the dialogue and the relation between space, artwork and human beings in order to create from a situation something that in this form did not exist before. This means that my work does not take its cues from pre- existing objects but aims at an object yet to be produced invested with an aesthetic-artistic function. This is only possible through the collection and translation of information that result from environmental data I recorded during field research I conducted on the Acores, in Lisbon, Warsaw and Lodz. These are frequencies transmitted through air that lie outside the audible spectrum. Employing elaborate electronic devices I was able to render these frequencies audible and to represent them graphically. Thereby the auditory and visual image of a city is reinterpreted allowing as a kind of calling card for the re-establishing of a city‘s as well as its inhabitants‘ identity.

Street Art & Urban Creativity International Conferenc 

Lisbon 2016



Authors:

STUDIO URMA - By Artis/Architect Christos Voutichtis and 

Literary Theorist Jonas Aaron Rehm


From the beginning any discourse on art finds itself arrested, held up inescapably, by a difficulty. “This difficulty”, Maurice Blanchot remarks, “illuminates from the outset, the anomaly which is the essence of literary activity which the writer both must and must not overcome.” (Blanchot, 1995: 303) Blanchot’s concern of course is with the writer of literature, the implications involved, however, bear heavily on art in general – they pertain to the relation of artist and work as such: “[I]n order to write, he must have the talent to write. But gifts, in themselves, are nothing. As long as he has not yet set down at his table and written a work, the writer is not a writer and does not know if he has the capacity to become one. He has no talent until he has written, but he needs talent in order to write.”

Research by STUDIO URMA: Moving and Space Forming Objects



The thin, transparent walls vibrate. When visitors enter, the shape of the space immediately changes. It seems as if the rules of architecture no longer apply. Not even architect Christos Voutichtis himself would claim to have modelled this space; all that he did was to create the conditions for it and watch it take shape. The fragile stability of the walk-in structure – made of constantly reshaping plastic sheeting – in a courtyard in Milan rests on the circulation of air currents. Yet for all its aesthetic appeal, the installation is actually just one of many different working models created in the course of a project that has been running since November 2014 …

Urban Creativity

Bildbeschreibung

 


In the 2016 edition of the conference and the second volume of the Journal, we seek to address two aspects: sharing approaches between the academic and non-academic knowledge production; how to intensify the relation of the research and production of Design, Architecture and Urbanism with Graffiti and Street Art. The conference will develop into two Lisbon spaces in the Fine Arts School on 16 and 17 June and the morning of day 18 in ISCTE-IUL

During one week, 100 students not only from Poland but also other parts of Europe will be tutored by experienced architects, activists and designers from all over the world that will try to figure out how to manage with architectural and urban issues of the hosting city. Bydgoszcz has its opportunity to organise such event for the first time. BydgOSSA 2015 will be held on 18-25th of October 2015r.  Every time, participants need to answer to the task given, usually connected with problems of modern cities.


Workshop subject of OSSA :


BydgOSSA 2015 is ECHO. Echo builds a structure of the city and goes beyond  perception of hearing.It is bouncing between art nouveau tenement houses and modern villas, heading to water - which creates the system of Bydgoszcz.  BydgOSSA 2015 is needs to become a clear sound impuls, which will have it’s effect on not only public spaces of Bydgoszcz but also it’s inhabitants and students of architecture in Poland.

About

Urban Forms Foundation

Bildbeschreibung



Urban Forms Foundation was created in 2009. We focus on broadly defined city culture and on organizing, promoting and supporting independent artistic initiatives in public space. We want to change city space by raising its quality and aesthetics. We see artistic activities as important tools in education and social revitalization.

 

We want to promote “living” culture and art, direct them towards people and make it possible for them to take an active part in organized events. We propagate every activity that aims at revitalizing our city and county as well as the whole country through artistic creativity. 


Our fundamental mission is to saturate the cityscape with creative, multilayered and modern art that would improve the current image of Lodz, giving it a truly artistic and original value. 


The main tool to reach our aim is large format painting done directly on the side elevations of buildings. The reason is that it changes the appearance of a given space permanently.


Urban Forms Gallery is the main project of the foundation. It is a permanent street art exhibition in public space of Lodz.

Walk&Talk Azores Festival is the privileged stage of the Atlantic for public art. Each year it welcomes on São Miguel island dozens of creators from multiple geo-graphies, quadrants and disciplines for a unique cocreatio experience.
