Carsten Höller

Carsten Höller

He uses his training as a scientist in his work as an artist, concentrating particularly on the nature of human relationships. Viewer participation is the key to all of his sculptures, but it is less an end in itself than a vehicle to informally test the artist's theories concerning human perception and physiological reactions.

Upside Down Mashroom Room
Mushrooms, as in magic or psychotropic mushrooms, have a large life here, literally and figuratively. They appear immense in his sprawling "Upside Down Mushroom Room," in which the biggest specimens are nearly 10 feet high and all of them are suspended from the ceiling, which makes one's stroll highly and whimsically disorienting.

Michael Craig Martin

Michael Craig Martin
born 1941,Dublin,Ireland

website: www.michaelcraig-martin.com

He grew up and was educated in the USA, studying Fine Art at Yale University. He moved to Britain on completion of his studies in 1966. In the early 1970s he exhibited the seminal piece Oak Tree. The work consists of a glass of water standing on a shelf attached to the gallery wall next to which is a text using a semiotic argument to explain why it is in fact an oak tree. Nevertheless, on one occasion when it was barred by US Customs officials from entering the country as vegetation, he was forced to explain it was really a glass of water.

KUB Fassade 2006 Kunsthaus Bregenz Fasard Exhibition---The installation is mounted in the space between the building and the etched glass shingles, so that basically only the path of the curved neon tubes will be visible. Controlled by a multistage, timestaggered program, the individual threads of the base of the light bulb “turn on” one after another until the entire light bulb is illuminated; then suddenly it goes dark and the sequence starts all over again. Thus, the glowing beacon of contemporary art at the edge of Lake Constance will emit a new, blinking light for the duration of the summer.

Dance floor 1997 Part of Installation "The Shapes of Space" at Guggenheim Museum

Piotr Uklanski’s “Untitled (Dance Floor),” which is in fact a dance floor: an eye-popping grid of flashing light, colors and patterns synchronized to various pop tunes of the disco and rap variety. This work was better out in the world, in its original incarnation as the floor of Passerby, the bar Gavin Brown opened in the front part of his gallery when it was on West 15th Street. According to the label, “it radically subverts the normal functions and patterns of behavior” of the museum, which is to say that it contributes to a certain mall-like atmosphere. Still, it’s not often that you can look at a Mondrian while listening to Missy Elliott.

Since three years Dinos and Jake Chapman have been working on a new work complex, which comprises sculpture, film and photography. A detail from the brothers' critically acclaimed installation - featuring a series of miniature landscapes, showing thousands of model Nazi soldiers committing atrocities - which was the centrepiece of the RA's Apocalypse exhibition in 2000. Dinos Chapman is reported to have shrugged off the loss, saying, "We will just make it again... It is only art."

Mark Wallinger

Mark Wallinger
born 1959 Chigwell

He has recreated peace campaigner Brian Haw’s Parliament Square protest for a dramatic new installation at Tate Britain. Running along the full length of the Duveen Galleries, State Britain consists of a meticulous reconstruction of over 600 weather-beaten banners, photographs, peace flags and messages from well-wishers that have been amassed by Haw over the past five years.

d0079151_4471872.jpg [2 hours 31 minutes]

A few days later I watched Sleeper on a live video feed at the German Embassy in London, during a crowded cocktail party in which the bear, trapped both in the museum and in the monitor, seemed irrevocably far away. It was easy to turn my back on the constant surveillance, and I felt a bit guilty eating German meatballs while the guest of honour was alone in his cage.
Occasionally I glimpsed him between bites of sausage, only to see him slumped in a corner, or running chaotically around. The artist seemed to be searching restlessly for a place within the museum where he could be comfortable, where he could belong, but ultimately the building refused him.

Gallery in London,UK

He has participated in numerous group exhibitions internationally, including the Venice Biennale, 9th International Istanbul Biennial and Documenta 11. Recent solo exhibitions include MIT List Visual Arts Centre, and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Kunsthaus Graz, BAWAG Foundation, Vienna.

La Part Maudite' by Georges Bataille 1949 20006 Chandelier (Luce Italia), flat screen monitor, Morse code unit and computer Dimensions variable. Chandelier: height: 102 3/8 x width: 86 5/8 in. (260 x 220 cm)

Wyn Evans began his career as a video and filmmaker, initially assisting Derek Jarman, and then making short, experimental films during the 1980s. Since the 1990s, his work could be characterised by its focus on language and perception, as well as its precise, conceptual clarity that is often developed out of the context of the exhibition site or its history. For Wyn Evans, installations should work like a catalyst: a reservoir of possible meanings that can unravel many discursive journeys. Moreover, his work has a highly refined aesthetic that is often informed by the his deep interest in film history and literature. Indeed, Wyn Evans’ earlier creators often inhabit his work, an indication of his desire to keep their ideas in play or bring them back to life in order to use them as raw material for future thought. Often his works harness the potential of language to create moments of rupture and delight, where romantic longing, desire and reality conjoin. His ‘Firework’ pieces, for example, are wooden structures that spell out open-ended texts that burn over a designated period of time.
