Klavierwellen at Instituto Tomie Ohtake (12/13/2011)
Exhibition: Os Dez Primeiros Anos
"The piano waves we hear are literally just that: while on a residency, the artist upturned a piano on a boat traveling around the canals, on which two contact microphones were attached to the soundboard and two micro omnidirectional placed between the soundboard and strings. The movement of the boat through water creates a kind of roving ambient experience of place but with no identifiable coordinates to define the locale. We are once again adrift." (David Bussel)

Opening Hours: Tuesday - Sunday 11- 20h
Venue: Intituto Tomie Ohtake, Av Faria Lima 201 Pinheiros, São Paulo, Brazil

Marcellvs L. at n.b.K. | Kunst und Philosophie (06/24/2011)
Apparently, there is a friendship between art and philosophy. As with every friendship, articulating a certain difference is part of it. Art and philosophy are not the same. But the difference already passes through the concept of art and philosophy itself. Perhaps art and philosophy are connected by the fact that art generates a singular concept of art, and philosophy its own conception of philosophy. The exhibition invites artists to define for themselves a relation to philosophy: from the perspective and with the means of artistic articulation.
Artists: João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva, Swantje Hielscher, Thomas Hirschhorn, Bethan Huws, Kitty Kraus, Marcellvs L., Christian Schwarzwald, Richard Wright, Haegue Yang
Philosophers: Mehdi Belhaj Kacem, Ray Brassier, Simon Critchley, François Jullien, Catherine Malabou, Boyan Manchev, Achille Mbembe, Chantal Mouffe, Nina Power, et al.
The show investigates a specific dimension of the Brazilian creative scene, through the selected works of twenty-seven artists using art as an exchange territory. A suspension of both time and space, whose only key is our way of interacting with it. The exhibition path analyzes Brazilian art as if it were a reflection of its original identity, an effect overriding every stereotype consolidated and transferred by European culture.
