Organizer:  Power Station  Of Art

"Body Media II has incorporated the industrial architecture of the Power Station of Art – a fragment of modernity – into the exhibition as a “cold body.” This cold body will be infused with warm languages and heated narratives that allow the audiences’ bodies to move and circulate within it like the flow of blood, testing whether the space, the works, andthe audiences can act in accordance with each other. Throughout the process we will, encounter exhausted bodies, contrasting bodies, moving bodies, and illusionary bodies; see how the body can become a substitute for time; discuss the relationship


between the body and identity in the virtual world; experience how the body is documented, extracted, readjusted, and reprogrammed; trace how photographic and videographic techniques have transformed our perceptions of the world; and as well discover how bodies, in their representations, can intrude and affect our relation to the real.

This exhibition is a sequel to an exhibition of the same name held in 2007. Ten years ago, Body Media was held in two fully enclosed black boxes, where the sense of space was deliberately taken away, turning the audiences’ bodies into keys that could open up the works through time. At the time, we were anticipating new interfaces and cross-disciplinary collaborations that would circumvent the power centers that formed the patterns for contemporary art production. Ten years later, the ubiquity of self-media and mobile terminals has caused the body and media to surpass a mutually mirroring and collaborative relation. The body is like an interface that every human carries that is of the same scale – an other that is at once both familiar and strange; new media technologies have given it a stage to play and perform, and slowed down its aging, just like how the same technologies are altering the past limitations of art."  www.powerstationofart.com/en/exhibition/Body-Media-II.html

The Salon - Low Definition - anti cool, @johnhns, Jeff Keen, Hiromi Nakajima, Noriko Okaku, Tatsumi Orimoto, Richard Parry, Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, Samantha Sweeting and Julia Waugh - Salon at The Lewisham Arthouse London England

Low Definition, like an act of translation through soft borders, is the suggestion of something and in descriptions that are formless there is “L’informe”. Yet the question of premium and highly defined information is a blurred equation, with our increased abilities to clone reality, meta data is minimised in a horizontal platform of replication


​Still associated with DIY production and the economically marginalised, the accessibility of technologies has enabled a reevaluation of "LD". Perhaps as exchange that allows for another experience and with this permission for the in between to have significance.

<![CDATA[Leaving Language - The Catalogue]]>Wed, 24 Jan 2018 15:05:01 GMThttp://waughoffice.com/events/leaving-language-the-catalogue
Sachiko Abe, Noe Aoki, anti cool, Tamaki Kawaguchi, Midori Mitamura, Hiromi Nakajima, Tatsumi Orimoto, Mio Shirai and Kirico Tanikawa participated in the exhibition Leaving Language at Folkestone in England. A catalogue is now available to buy as a PDF or hard copy. Please email info@waughoffice.com.

"Mixing up several languages to talk to you, by only typing words our entities are enclosed through transformers. Grimacing without sounds a friskiness bounced, can a light headedness be evacuated from the responsibility of words?" Hiromi Nakajima


There are ghosts in the language of a highway and nothing crosses the borders of a text without an inheritance or debt. Every gift carries an obligation, nine Artists were in the Curator's limousine and each told her a story.

The passengers rode into the sequence of dislocation that occurs when transportation evaporates and becomes a cloud: a storage system for data.

In this stretch limousine of words, through the windows you might hear screaming. “What is the story of these Japanese Artists who have been invited to an ambiguous island called Albion?”

As children we learn to represent many things houses, animals, family, friends and the modes of mobility such as cars. Then we learn to leave our silent place of infancy and find ourselves attending to the world and it's many mysteries such as speach.

There is nothing communicated outside the text, this is true whatever system of language we use. As the night sky fills with stars and we come like the Milky Way over a velvet heaven knowing our days can be counted until we make the final journey.

“Mixing up several languages to talk to you by only typing , our entities are enclosed through transformers. Grimacing without sounds a friskiness bounced, can a light headedness be evacuated from the responsibilities of words?” - Hiromi Nakajima
 
The coded systems of language are an infectious grammè, that allows us to articulate thoughts while simultaneously becoming them. How then are national aesthetics translated in the era of global technological platforms? Artworks are material engines of the desire to transform words via an intensity of other signs.

​During the opening there will be live performances at The Metropole Gallery and interviews via a Limousine that will become a mobile TV studio, a hybrid space in which audiences will find themselves transported by the journey to and beyond the frame of the exhibition and Folkestone.

<![CDATA[Midori Mitamura]]>Wed, 24 Jan 2018 14:53:20 GMThttp://waughoffice.com/events/midori-mitamura Picture
"My works always reflects the sensibility that I have acquired traveling, for that reason, my diverse exhibitions are directed to explore thoughts on the human thing over the cultural difference. My conception of space is composed of a combination of several languages: photos, films, music, words and objects found. Therefore, the installation poses a theater in which people can venture.

The site-specific is a significant and remarkable work process of my works. I have adopted a versatile approach in relation to my field of work, such as communication, improvised installations or performance, incorporating photos or films."


Japanese creator Midori Mitamura is the first foreign artist of the Artists in Residence program that CAAM has launched in 2017. It is a project commissioned by the Management of the CAAM. This residence is part of the collaboration agreement signed between this art center and JTI. The artist has developed in the workshop-laboratory during her residency at the CAAM the site-specific project entitled Art & Breakfast that she has exhibited in various countries around the world, adapted to the room where she is exhibited, from the assembly of objects from the place where he creates it.

Art & Breakfast Folkestone connected with Art & Breakfast CAAM with paper birds that were sent through the post in blue envelops.

<![CDATA[Haenyeo: Women of the Sea]]>Wed, 24 Jan 2018 13:00:00 GMThttp://waughoffice.com/events/haenyeo-women-of-the-sea-at-the-national-maritime-museum-london-england Picture
"This March 2017 join the National Maritime Museum as it celebrates the start of Women’s History Month with the opening of Haenyeo: Women of the Sea, an exhibition exploring the fascinating lives of the female divers of Jeju in South Korea.

Running from 5 March–1 June 2017, the fascinating story of haenyeo and their community is told from two different perspectives, through life-size photographic portraits taken by Hyung S. Kim and SeaWomen, a video and sound installation by Mikhail Karikis. Both components of the exhibition celebrate the unique culture of haenyeo, who for centuries have harvested seafood from the ocean without any diving apparatus. The women dive for up to seven hours a day and range in age from 11 to over 80 years old.


The inspiration for Kim’s series of portraits stems from his visit to Jeju Island in 2012, where he was captivated by the haenyeo and the power, resilience and unique physical performance used in their daily lives. He chose to photograph them in their most natural state, showing the divers emerging from the sea, exhausted and wet after the long hours spent diving. The photographs are intended to show the haenyeo, not as relics, nor trophies, but as beautiful and strong portraits of working women.

Karikis came across the divers, searching for seafood and pearls during his residency on the island of Jeju. Taken aback by the unique way the haenyeo communicate with one another, his video and sound installation captures the sonic signature of the community of divers. Karikis has also created watercolour portraits painted whilst holding his breath in empathy with their working conditions.

Both artists’ work is an insight into the culture of the Jeju divers, who have contributed to the advancement of women’s status within their community, whilst promoting environmental sustainability with their eco-friendly fishing methods.

Haenyeo: Women of the Sea will open to the public with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday 5 March 19017. Visitors can also view the documentary film ‘Breathing Underwater’ by Heeyoung Koh and Mikhail Karikis film portrait "The SeaWomen" about haenyeo on Tuesday 7  March 2017, followed by a discussion with the artist.

​The National Maritime Museum will also be hosting Women Making Waves on Saturday 11 March, a one day festival featuring trails, workshops and performances, celebrating the fascinating stories of women who made their mark on British and global maritime history." NMM Press Release.
