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.

Jamie Reid

Jamie Reid
born 1947 Croydon Surrey,UK

website: www.jamiereid.uk.net

Jamie Reid educated at John Ruskin Grammar School in Croydon, is a British artist and anarchist with connections to the Situationists. His work, featuring letters cut from newspaper headlines in the style of a ransom note came close to defining the image of punk rock, particularly in the UK. His best work is cover art of the Sex Pistols album.



San Francisco Busses1975

Produced by Suburban Press for Point Blank (San Franciscan situationist collective) this image was re-imported and put to good use by Jamie several years later for the Pretty Vacant promo poster. A negative version also appeared on the back cover of the single.

God Save The Queen 1977
Cover art of The Sex Pistols

The art works are juxtaposed within eighteen rooms to allow for similarities or versions of the same line of thought which the two countries shared during that era.

Although its curators claim that the exhibition does not centre on Punk music, it begins on a seminally musical note with the anti-royalist album cover artwork designed by Jamie Reid for the Sex Pistol’s controversial 1977 debut God Save the Queen, which was famously released the year of the Silver Jubilee.

In May 2000, Kaskade moved to San Francisco and began working as an A&R assistant for Om Records. Releasing his first single "What I Say" on the label in 2001.

Kaskade's fourth solo album Love Mysterious was released in September 2006. The first single from the album, "Be Still", reached #4 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot Dance Club Play. The single features vocalist Sunsun, and includes remixes by Jay-J and Robbie Rivera. Follow up single "Stars Align" hit number #8 on "Billboard Magazine" Hot Dance Airplay chart and just missed the top ten, #11, on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The remix has been nominated for a 2008 Grammy for Best Remixed Recording. Although unconfirmed, many people believe that he may have taken his name from the Detroit band the Kaskades, who broke up in late 2006.Upon signing with Ultra Records in late 2006, Kaskade subsequently left OM Records and now only releases with the former.

Most recently Kaskade has worked with Canadian house/electronic DJ/artist: "Deadmau5", to help produce some tracks on Strobelite Seduction. Including the first single, released as an EP, Move For Me.

Douglas Gordon

Douglas Gordon
born1966 Glasgow, Scotland

view his works:Gagosian Gallery

Gordon was born in Glasgow and studied art first there (at the Glasgow School of Art) from 1984-1988 and later at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, from 1988-1990. His first solo show was in 1986.
Much of Gordon's work is seen as being about memory and uses repetition in various forms. In one early work, Meaning and Location (1990), a passage from the Gospel of Luke is given with a comma in different places, thus subtly changing the meaning of the sentence. List of Names (1990-present) is a list of every person Gordon has ever met and can remember. One version of this is applied onto the wall of a stairwell in the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Kunsthaus Bregenz

[Kunsthaus Bregenz]
1997 Karl Tizian Platz A-6900 Bregenz Austria

website: www.kunsthaus-brengenz.at

Architect: Peter Zumthor

The museum stands like a box of light on the shores of Lake Constance. Its inner light is ever-changing, depending on the type of exhibition installed inside, the time of the day and the color of the sky. The building was designed to catch light with all of its surface and then distribute it into the three levels of the gallery space plus the ground floor.
The glass skin is a free standing structure supported by a metal frame; it also protects the interior concrete tower from rain and wind.

Between each gallery level there is a complete floor that is totally empty, a 'light plenum'. This is were the external light is collected and then spread into the gallery space below. The gallery floor is a box of concrete without a top: the ceiling is made of glass panels. The amount of light caught by the gap between floors is enough to display some exhibitions without the use of any artificial light, and frees the wall surface from the need for window openings.

The visitor moves through the building in a circular way, either taking the elevator to the top floor and then descending using the stairs or the opposite way around. This circular pattern is a result of the structural configuration of the space. The floor slabs are supported by three interior bearing walls located at the perimeters of the gallery. It is common for the curators of this museum to divide each exhibition in three parts following the organization of the building, and at the same time the formal neutrality of the spaces allows the institution to change the quality of the space with each exhibition. However this is not a neutral building. Whatever concessions the space makes in terms of form and its straight forward circulation system are counterbalanced with the sensuality of the material and with the quality of the light.

Crying Men The photographs are multi-layered in the sense that they toy with a suggestive, underlying truth that is never revealed, arousing desire in the viewer for resolution while always leaving it unsatisfied.

Scene for new Heritage Trilogy 2004 video and sound installation/video/DVD/Colour/Sound, 4’33”

The three films travel through time to show the artist’s vision of the future and how the meanings of history and monuments change over time. Set in the futuristic world of 2045 the first film follows a group travelling to the memorial park at Petrova Gora, Croatia.

They visit communist monuments and debate over their long-forgotten meaning in traditional Croatian folk song that the artist recasts as a futuristic language. The second part is set twenty years later, as a young boy looks out from the monument’s tower to an empty landscape, as though the building has by then acquired a mystical dimension. The final film shows young teenagers talking, playing and walking around the derelict monument.

Ralf Peters

Ralf Peters
born 1960 Hamburg,Germany

website: www.r-peters.de

In recent years, Ralf Peters has repeatedly found new ways of shedding light on the criteria for perception today. In this process, he has from the very outset endeavored to ensure his work did not require a great amount of material. Thus, he has digitally processed the images he has found - which ostensibly promise us a true depiction of the world - to create a variety of series in which specific contemporary phenomena are shown in a new light.

Tankstelle - Laserchrome Diasec 1998 Photographs C-Print on Aluminium / Bernhard Knaus Fine Art

Many Many Colored Smarties or The Colors of a One-Dimensional World
In one of these series, he maltreats the phenomenon of gas stations. With a sense of ironic rigidity and seriousness, by means of the PC he tries to generate a pure architectural form for the uniqueness that each of these sales outlets of the global oil companies pretends to offer us - with all sorts of ornamental trappings. For this reason, he purges the gas stations of logos, lettering and ad billboards, He makes the buildings resemble one another - after all, their former variety has increasingly given way to one-dimentionality in the course of gradual rationalization through global marketing. What remains are beautifully illuminated buildings, which purportedly have an unmistakable identity rhanks to their luminescent colors. Peters interested in the banal formula boasted by contmporary everday architecture. Once these are formulas - like some secret signs of rigid functionality that reflect the unwavering power of the business world. The semblance of colorful if vapid directs our gaze to the eradication of aesthetic difference that greets us wherever we tread in a modern city. Though blinded by the gleaming surfaces of these architectonic replicas, extracted by aestheticization from their commercial context, our perception is honed to form an in-depth critique of our notion of human architecture.
