Unforgettable Jan Fabre

Even though contemporary art can offer us a hell of new techniques and forms we still can’t take our eyes from the paintings of old masters. Their masterpieces are awash with nostalgic memories stored in each brush stroke, layer of paint and shadow of color. Their emotional intensity and sincerity hypnotize and inspire. Many of the old masters mixed blood into their paint, crushed human bones to make white paint and made enormous efforts to get a sky blue color. Many of them painted instinctively. Natural emotions just can’t be imitated by synthetics, technology and new media as only strong feelings can provoke this magical and sometimes even demonic magnetism that captures our hearts today.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jan Fabre has explored this phenomenon even further. The Flemish artist who would paint with his own blood in 80s presents his experiment with raw materials here in Venice. The strong and fragile at the same time, bone and glass, will constitute a new body of art. Don’t miss JAN FABRE. GLASS AND BONE SCULPTURES 1977–2017. Collateral event of the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. Abbazia di San Gregorio in Venice.

Let’s go to Cosmos and ride the stars

Dear Friends, we know how much you adore Star Wars, Alien and War of the Worlds. Let’s play George Orwell and navigate our spaceship back in future…
1984
USSR, Moscow, Arbat street
A young artist Gosha Ostretsov rebels against the herd instinct and collectivity behavior imposed by the communist ideology. Befriended by the hippies and non-conformists he leads a street art movement which is known for its oppositional context. Inspired by Egyptian frescoes and Russian icon-painting his alien to the Soviet system style has developed into the political dialogue symbolically transmitted by comics and costume-art performance.
2017
Italy. Venice. Palazzo Nani Bernardo.
A splendid baroque palace hosts a cosmic exposition of a top-ranked Russian artist, Gosha Ostretsov, whose artworks can be found in Charles Saatchi and Roman Abramovich’s collections. Here in Venice Gosha leads an army of supernatural artifacts that breaks forward and attacks statuesque baroque solemnity. They will invade the whole art space and mount a giant obelisk as a symbol of a new science that will reign from now on…Science Fiction 🚀🛰⚗️

Meet us HALF way

Do you think HALF is enough or too little? HALF is already self-consisted but not accomplished yet; HALF is the midway, but the whole distance is still uncovered. HALF is just one side of a coin. HALF is the center of an hour. HALF is a disturbing feeling in between duality and instability. It’s the anxious atmosphere of Thu Van Tran’s art. Thu Van Tran is a Vietnamese artist who was born in Ho Chi Minh City in 1979 but later moved to France, a former metropolitan country of French Indochina. Psychological and physical effects of the Vietnam War and colonial regime influenced greatly the artist’s mindset. It’s always been HALF political, HALF conceptual.

“The hevea, the rubber tree, born out of a seed brought in and planted by the first French settlers who arrived in Vietnam in the early twentieth century. Symbol of a poisoned chalice considering the wealth and discord generated by its cultivation “ (Thu Van Tran)
From Green to Orange


The title refers to the colour-coded defoliants dropped on Vietnam by the U.S. military during the war.
