Dear Stéphane und François Gutzwiller, dear Lorenz von Habsburg, dear Peter Handschin
Was für eine wunderbare gemeinsame Geschichte durften wir in den vergangenen 15 Jahren erleben! Ihr hattet den Mut und den guten «Riecher» auf eine damals noch unbekannte Messe zu setzen. Mit eurer wertvollen ideellen und materiellen Unterstützung sind wir gross und erfolgreich geworden. Einen so überaus loyalen und treuen Partner und Freund zu haben, ist «Gold» wert.
What a wonderful history we’ve shared over the past 15 years! You had courage and the right «nose for future trends» when you chose those many years ago to support a then unknown art fair. With both your tangible and intangible support, your ideas and your financial contributions, we have developed into a large and successful fair. As a deeply loyal and abiding partner and friend, you are worth your weight in «gold».
Ihr wisst es und ich sage es überaus gerne: Grossen und herzlichen Dank für euer Engagement an der LISTE, unseren Galerien und ihren jungen Kunstschaffenden.
You already know, but I am so pleased to say: Our deepest and warmest thanks for your dedication and commitment to LISTE, our galleries and our young artists.
Ich freue mich auf die weitere gemeinsame Zukunft! Happy Birthday! 125 Jahre Bank E. Gutzwiller und Happy Birthday 15 Jahre Hauptsponsor! In Freundschaft und Dankbarkeit.
I am looking forward to our continuing down our path together! Happy Birthday! 125 years of Bank E. Gutzwiller and Happy Birthday – 15 years as our main sponsor!

Vorwort Foreword Herzlich Willkommen zur 16. Ausgabe der LISTE und herzlich Willkommen in der Kunststadt Basel!
Wecome to the 16th edition of LISTE and welcome to Art City Basel!
Schon wieder feiern wir ein Jubiläum!
Once again we are celebrating an anniversary!
Nachdem wir im letzten Jahr 15 erfolgreiche LISTE Jahre feierten, können wir in diesem Jahr 15 Jahre Hauptsponsor: E. Gutzwiller & Cie Banquiers, Basel feiern!
Last year we celebrated 15 successful years of LISTE, and this year we are celebrating 15 years with our main sponsor: E. Gutzwiller & Cie Banquiers, Basel!
In diesen 15 Jahren hat sich mit unserem Hauptsponsor eine wunderbare und wertvolle Partnerschaft und Freundschaft entwickelt. Mit ihrem grossen finanziellen Engagement ermöglichen sie unseren Galerien zu günstigen Konditionen in Basel dabei zu sein. Einen ganz grossen und herzlichen Dank! Die LISTE 16 stellt ihnen in diesem Jahr 64 Galerien aus 19 Ländern vor. So hat unsere Fachjury aus 350 Bewerbungen 64 Galerien ausgewählt. 10 Galerien stellen wir ihnen dieses Jahr neu vor und 8 Galerien kehren nach erfolgreichen Statements auf der Art Basel an die LISTE zurück. Unsere Sondergäste sind in diesem Jahr das Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich, der Kaskadenkondensator, Basel und das Haus für elektronische Künste Basel. Die Versicherung Nationale Suisse verleiht zum achten Mal ihren Kunstpreis an eine Diplomandin oder einen Diplomanden einer Schweizer Fachhochschule im Bereich «Bildende Kunst und Medienkunst». Ebenso verleiht das IT Unternehmen redtoo aus Reinach zum zweiten Mal seinen Kunstpreis. Dieser Preis geht an die überzeugendste Newcomer-Galerie ausgewählt von einer Fachjury. Ergänzt wird die Messe erneut durch unser Performance-Projekt, welches täglich wechselnde internationale Performerinnen und Performer präsentiert.
Over the past 15 years, a wonderful and valuable partnership and friendship with our main sponsors has developed. With their strong financial commitment to our fair, they have made it possible for our galleries to participate in LISTE at reasonable terms and conditions. A big and warm-hearted thank! LISTE 16 will present 64 galleries from 19 countries. Our jury of experts selected these galleries from among 350 applicants. 10 galleries are new and 8 will be returning to LISTE after successful Statements at Art Basel. Our special guests this year are the Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich, Kaskadenkondensator, Basel and the House of Electronic Arts Basel. For the eighth time, the Nationale Suisse Insurance Company will award its art prize to a graduate of a Swiss art college who has majored in «visual art and media art». The IT firm redtoo, Reinach, will award its art prize for the second time. The prize will be awarded to the most outstanding newcomer gallery, chosen by an international jury of experts. Once again our fair will be enriched by the Performance Project, which will present a daily-changing schedule of international performance artists. I would like to wish you all of a wonderful time in Basel. Peter Bläuer, Director

Coup De Cœur
The Zurich museum Haus Konstruktiv is particularly pleased to be a guest at this year’s LISTE – The Young Art Fair in Basel, because in 2011, the Foundation for Constructive, Concrete and Conceptual Art (the foundation which supports this museum) is celebrating its 25th anniversary: For several years, the museum Haus Konstruktiv, which emerged from Zurich’s history of concrete art, has addressed the cross-generational dialog between artistic positions of the past and their continuation in the present. Thus, the presentation «Coup De Cœur» is about the twofold artistic ability to organize and to simultaneously seduce. The central observation is that in recent years, a new visual interest in clarity, reduction and systematics has developed, because if we just zap through the world, through art colleges, museums and art galleries, we encounter invigoratingly diverse forms of a new minimalism everywhere: Reduction is in again! ZERO is undergoing a major revival internationally, key op-art artists are being rediscovered and young galleries with a contemporary program are exhibiting significant conceptual artists of the 1960s and 70s. And with many young artists addressing issues of a reductionist nature, we can already speak of a new generation of «neoconceptualists». In short: constructivist, concrete and conceptual topics are in the forefront once more and totally contemporary.
And this is actually no surprise, because the search for a universalistic overall concept, as offered by the systems of geometry and mathematics, the analytical and emotional research of pure artistic means, creates timeless freedom. One might almost speak of a new concrete and conceptual movement which has assimilated the experiences, insights and findings of the whole 20th century and now, at the beginning of the 21st century, has an altered selfconfidence – one that does not assert itself through dissociation, but rather by means of a particular form of faith in artistic assertion itself. In the presentation «Coup De Cœur», we are exhibiting works by Elias Crespin (*1965 in Caracas, Venezuela; lives in Paris), Natalia Stachon (*1976 in Katowice, Poland; lives in Berlin), Tobias Madison (*1985 in Basel; lives in Basel and Zurich) and Mai-Thu Perret (*1976 in Geneva, lives in Geneva; winner of the «Zurich Art Prize» 2011, Haus Konstruktiv 2011). In addition, we are presenting Natalia Stachon’s new catalog «Matter Shifted», ed. by Haus Konstruktiv and published by DISTANZ Verlag Berlin.

«After receiving information on the situation in Egypt every 5 seconds through my SINA microblog, and after reading the article from Slavoj Žižek commenting on WikiLeaks I have become very aware that we have entered an era of information explosion, which leaves me confused about the nature of true information and truth as such.

The new House of Electronic Arts Basel is the successor of [plug.in], Art & New Media (2000–2010), and the new home for Shift – Electronic Arts Festival (est. 2007). It presents contemporary art and music that applies and addresses electronic media. At LISTE, it presents a guest project with young artists from China, curated by Li Zhenhua.

This is the moment that provides us with the opportunity of testing information tools such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Google Earth and the many other means that link us together. This project addresses social media, but does not stay restricted to the online realm, as it engages with the interrelations of art, the human body, and social intervention. What are the challenges that we face as the real-life and online realms evolve parallel to each other?» Li Zhenhua Aaajiao, anti-cybernetics, 2010 Interactive installation

The Nationale Suisse Encouragement Prize for graduates of Swiss colleges of visual arts and media is given annually to a young artist at the start of his career. The Art Prize includes a monetary award of CHF 15 000 and a curated exhibition at the LISTE. The Encouragement Prize affirms and expands the longstanding commitment of Nationale Suisse to art production in Switzerland.

versity of Art and Design. His drawings and smallformat paintings are based in his obsessive exploration of the aesthetic of 1960s and 70s hard rock and heavy metal. Assimilating this past, Bailly constructs an unmistakable visual world of his own. What looks at first glance like naïve painting proves, on closer inspection, to be a playful and complex handling of references from the history of painting, from Max Bill to Philip Guston and the comic strip.

Zum zweiten Mal wird an der LISTE, The Young Art Fair in Basel, mit dem im letzten Jahr neu geschaffenen «redtoo Art Prize» die überzeugendste Newcomer Galerie des Jahres ausgezeichnet. Der Preis richtet sich an Galerien, die zum ersten Mal an der LISTE ausstellen. Eine internationale Jury beurteilt die Standpräsentation sowie das Gesamtkonzept der Galerie. Der «redtoo Art Prize» wird alljährlich an der LISTE vergeben.
For the second time at LISTE, The Young Art Fair in Basel, the fair’s most outstanding newcomer gallery will receive the «redtoo Art Prize», an award newly created last year. The prize is open to galleries presenting for the first time at LISTE. An international jury assesses each gallery’s stand presentation as well as its overall concept. The «redtoo Art Prize» is presented annually at LISTE. Commitment to Art with a Future
Das Kunstengagement mit Zukunft
Der «redtoo Art Prize» wurde von der redtoo ag mit dem Ziel geschaffen, neue Galerien und junge, talentierte Kunstschaffende zu fördern, ihren Bekanntheitsgrad zu steigern und ihnen den Einstieg in die internationale Kunstszene zu erleichtern. Da Galerie und Künstler gleichermassen unterstützt werden sollen, besteht der «redtoo Art Prize» aus zwei Teilen: Zum einen werden die Standkosten der preistragenden Galerie übernommen – zum anderen erwirbt die redtoo ag ein Kunstwerk eines durch die Galerie vertretenen Künstlers, welches anschliessend an einem der Firmenstandorte in Reinach, Basel oder Bern ausgestellt wird. Mit dem Werkankauf legt redtoo den Grundstein für eine eigene Kunstsammlung.
The «redtoo Art Prize» was created by redtoo ag with the goals of promoting emerging galleries and young talented artists, increasing their recognition, and facilitating their entry into the international art scene.

As redtoo ag seeks to support both gallery and artist in equal measure, the «redtoo Art Prize» is composed of two parts: Firstly, the stand costs of the winning gallery will be assumed by redtoo; secondly, redtoo ag will acquire a work by one of the artists represented by the gallery which will then be displayed at one of the firm’s locations in Reinach, Basel or Berne. By purchasing a work of art, redtoo will be laying the foundation for its own art collection.
Members of the jury of the redtoo Art Prize for this year: _ Mirjam Varadinis, Curator Kunsthaus Zurich _ Dr. Matthias Mühling, Head of Departement Collections/Exhibitions/Research, Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau, München _ Christian Karstedt, Director of redtoo ag, Reinach
LISTE – The Young Art Fair in Basel und der Werkraum Warteck pp Ein Dokumentarfilm von Edith Jud / A documentary by Edith Jud
Die LISTE – The Young Art Fair in Basel ist vom kulturellen Leben der Stadt Basel nicht mehr wegzudenken. Der Werkraum Warteck pp – der Ort an dem die LISTE alljährlich stattfindet – gehört zur LISTE wie auch die LISTE zum Werkraum Warteck pp. So kehrt die LISTE seit 16 Jahren immer wieder ins prägnante Gebäude der ehemaligen Brauerei Warteck zurück. Weniger bekannt ist, dass die rund 40 Mieterinnen und Mieter des Warteck’s jeweils für die Messewoche aus ihren Räumlichkeiten ausziehen und dass ein Teil von ihnen während dieser Zeit für die Messe arbeitet – einer der typisch untypischen Tatsachen.
One can no longer imagine the cultural life of Basel without LISTE – The Young Art Fair in Basel. The workshop community Warteck pp – where LISTE takes place each year – is a part of LISTE just as LISTE is a part of the workshop community Warteck pp. And so for the past 16 years, LISTE has returned again and again to the distinctive building that was home to the former Warteck brewery. Less well-known is the fact that approximately 40 individuals renting at the Warteck vacate their spaces and that a number of them also work for the fair during that time – one of many typically untypical facts.
In den vergangenen 16 Jahren sind viele Geschichten, Eindrücke und unvergessliche Momente entstanden. Wir freuen uns sehr, dass wir diese Momente, die Geschichte des Werkraum Warteck und der LISTE und ihre spezielle Beziehung in einem Dokumentarfilm festhalten durften. Realisiert hat der Film Edith Jud, die unter anderem den Dokumentarfilm über Dieter Roth, sowie zahlreiche Künstlerbeiträge (Mirjam Cahn, Hannah Villiger und Pipilotti Rist) produziert hat.
Over the past 16 years there have developed many stories, impressions and unforgettable moments. We are very pleased that we have been able to record those moments, the history of the workshop community Warteck pp and LISTE and their special relationship in a documentary. The film was realized by Edith Jud, who has produced, for example, a documentary on Dieter Roth as well as numerous artistic contributions (Mirjam Cahn, Hannah Villiger and Pipilotti Rist).
Der Film wird während der LISTE im Raum 0/8 gezeigt. Die DVD wird für CHF 12.– erhältlich sein.
The film will be shown during LISTE in room 0/8. The DVD will be available at the fair office for CHF 12.–.

A crucial element of Matthew Lutz-Kinoy’s approach to performance is the defining of space through the introduction and translation of daily activities. He uses formal repetition in his choreography to develop the stage as a social and historical space, thereby referencing the experimental practices of the choreographers and dancers of the Judson Dance Theater at Judson Memorial Church in New York City and Allen Ginsberg’s «lecture performances». In his various works, the experience of space and the shifting role of sculptures, props and bodies via constantly changing perspectives delimits the physicality of the individual entities themselves. Lutz-Kinoy extends his phenomenological enquiries to the physical dimension of film and music as well. He uses these mediums to explore his interest in social space through the deployment of bodies against a background of art-historically and socially shaped expectations. In the live dance performance «Donna Haraway’s Expanded Benefits Package», 2011, which he and music producer SOPHIE will present in Basel, Lutz-Kinoy takes as his starting point fragmented representation and partial perception, as understood by the field of structural film, and transforms them into an aesthetic experience in the sense of expanded cinema. Music and catwalk in this setting function as allusions to pre-produced desires and established stereotypes, as well as to the objects that physically structure the stage.
The performer is a blond woman with a powerful presence. She wears a white shirt and a black tie, trousers in an eccentric fabric depicting some hair salon accessories (hair dryers, combs, curlers), no shoes. She moves slowly and awkwardly, she is not comfortable with an audience, she can't look at the audience. She turns her back to it, facing the 7, and looks at herself in the small mirror. After a short moment she starts applying black make-up on her face. Her hands are very white and soon her fingers are covered with makeup. She takes her time, applying layer after layer, until her face is completely black. When she's finished, she examines her make-up carefully. She leaves the mirror on the floor, close to her. She grabs the 7 firmly, leaving black finger prints on its edges, and leans it against the floor. She starts applying black make-up on the visible side of the 7, bending on her knees, nearly walking on them sometimes, moving around the 7 as if to embrace it with her whole body. She uses water from a little black ceramic cup to melt the makeup and make it more fluid, taking her time, until the surface of the 7 is completely black.
Over the past decade, Kim Seob Boninsegni has engaged in a complex practice that does not distinguish between the production of art objects, curating, publishing, networking, teaching and observing. At Theâtre de l’Usine, in Geneva, he recently staged «Passage(s)», 2011, a theater play conceived by the artist (and realized in collaboration with numerous contributors) that explores the precariousness and fragility of the transition from adolescence to adulthood. For the opening of his solo show at the exhibition space New Jerseyy, in Basel, Seob Boninsegni will perform «Perfect Vehicles», 2011, a piece developed in collaboration with the choreographer Olivia Ortega. The performance will take place at New Jerseyy, located at Hüningerstrasse 18, near Voltaplatz, and is a co-production between New Jerseyy, Basel, and the Performance Project.
Ruth Buchanan often employs language as choreography, using speech to guide her audience through spaces defined by settings for objects or groups of ideas – as such, she proposes a different approach toward the character of a site. Her choreographed spatial compositions influence the potential of communication between the different components that «act» within the scenario; this potential to communicate between several registers is at the core of Buchanan’s interest in performance. At LISTE 16, the staged situation of the art fair acts as the departure point for Buchanan’s contribution to the Performance Project, «A Wayward Punctuation», 2011.

Did something just close? A door? A feeling? Stéphane Querrec just getting to be too much. Most people feel they began when their bodies began and that they will end when their bodies die. But now I feel like im running through a maze with no hope of finding the end. Everybody has noticed that im not so good at hiding it anymore. this feeling is just getting to hard to hide though. I feel like im useless these days and i just want to crawl in a hole and never come out. I know im a dissapointment these days but im beginning to feel like im standing on the edge of a cliff and every day is like one more step closer to just walking off. The smallest things make me lose control. simple things have me flipping out and yelling, or crying, or just shutting down entirely. My 2 kids have noticed. They walk on egg shells around me even as small as they are. I feel like all i do is yell at them anymore and thats not fair that they are getting yelled at because mommy just cant handle life anymore. 34
The publisher and choreographer Jeanne-Salomé Rochat works mainly with text and film as well as performance. Applying an integrated approach to movement, her pieces combine the performative dimension of images with compositional detail and concern for analyzing ways and means of representation, while gaining motivation from narcissistic, voyeuristic and fetishistic mechanisms. Her contribution to LISTE is the new version of a performance conceived as a group of interdependent situations or figures connected by, and interacting through, motion performed by only four dancers, for the first time. «None Of Them», 2011 is the activation of movements and the succession of their patterns. In it, choreography becomes a step-by-step problem-solving process, in which each constellation of bodies conditions the possibilities of the next movement. While there will be no improvisation per se, a new score is defined according to each location. In Basel the piece will be performed by Franziska Aigner, Tuur Marinus, Gabriel Schenker and Stav Yeini of the Belgian contemporary dance collective Busy Rocks, dressed by the New York based designer Johanna Bloomfield.
Since its founding in 2006, Udio has produced myriad performances and video works. The group’s productions arise from brief spurts of intense collaboration and manifest as collective collages of all the participants´ ideas and state of minds. In this process, a variety of presentation formats are tried out repeatedly; within the framework of those formats, the participants respond to the circumstances and expectations related to their specific surroundings. Since 2011, Udio Fine Arts has been a guest at the maternity ward of Frankfurt University Hospital. From January to December of this year, the hospital’s hallways, waiting rooms and delivery rooms are serving a purpose beyond their usual function: They are being used for exhibitions that change on a quarterly basis. The exhibition is open 24 hours a day and can be viewed by appointment. For further information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Performance Project is supported by: Alfred Richterich Stiftung

Raphael Hefti has a practice that implicates a kind
of alchemy, whether he be forming steel poles as fragile as glass, growing mushrooms in the gallery or illuminating entire mountainsides. It is his exploration of the aesthetic potential of chemical processes and technical procedures that are the starting points of Lycopodium (2010/2011). Large format monochrome and color photograms are exposed through burning pollen spores of the Lycopodium plant, used as medicine in homeopathy and known as «witch powder» in the Middle Ages, due to its high inflammability. Their compositions are largely as accidental as the action paintings of Amercian Expressionism or Warhol’s «Piss Paintings» (1977–78). Hefti graduated from the Slade School of Art, London in 2011. Recent solo exhibitions include «327 Different Sounds», Raum für zeitgenössische Fotografie, Winterthur and «Beginning with the first thing that comes that comes to mind», Fluxia, Milan (2011). Group exhibitions include «How to Work» and «How to Work Less», Kunsthalle Basel (2011); «Bloomberg New Contemporaries», ICA, London (selected by, Gabriel Kuri, Mark Leckey and Dawn Mellor, 2010); «The Sun is the Tongue, the Shadow is the Language» (with Lourdes Castro, Ernst Caramelle, Li Yuan-chia, Luca Frei), Ancient & Modern, London; Kunstpreis ZKB, Kunstmesse Zurich, Switzerland (2008), and Regeneration, Aperture Gallery, New York (2006).

Neïl Beloufa lives and works in Paris. He studied at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs Paris, France, Cooper Union, New York and California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, USA.
For LISTE 16 the artist presents Define Maybe : a 3-channel video installation including sculptures and images, both constructing and denying its collective meaning. The installation plays with and explores the definition of singularity and the authority of each of the elements constituting it, furthermore it is concerned with the meaning of singularity in a larger sense. The characters in the film construct and spontaneously invent their individuality and personas. Objects and images oscillate between their function and autonomy. Through the different potential meanings suggested in the context of the show and their relation to other works in the show they redefine one another. The base of the installation consists of 3 identical modules that serve to display the video projections. The modules become sculptures on their own according to the way they are installed, cut and forced to fit into a space they were not designed for.

«Sayre And Marcus» 2010 is a 3-channel video.
The video shows a group of young Americans in a television studio sitting in a circle in discussion, no specific scenery surrounding them. The scene is recorded with hypnotic circular movement shots. The group seeks to uncover a culprit responsible for an undefined murder. There is no script, no specific directions were given to the participants who are not professional actors. During the discussion, the participants are drinking alcohol; this intensifies the suspense and tension between the characters and the situation. During the course of their investigation, the participants spontaneously take on «roles», adding to the video the sense of a pseudo-sociological experiment on democracy, thus investigating the influence of imagination on our behaviour. Unexpected and disconnected topics appear in the video, some related to «the war in Iraq» or to actor’s schools or to furniture construction. They also appear in the images that are part of the installation around the film projection, but none of the elements take over and redefine the context of the show. It’s a closed circuit. This chaos of images, functional objects, volumes, sounds, and meanings, united in an off-shaded aesthetic coherence, makes it seem as if each detail is participating in a dissociative design and plunges viewers into a haze of interpretations. It blurs meanings in order to open understanding.

For its second presentation at LISTE, Johan Berggren Gallery has chosen to do a solo-presentation with Fredrik Værslev (NO, 1979). Last year, at LISTE 15, Værslev presented a series of Shelf paintings where he investigated a coherent aesthetic through collaboration and developed painting as a socio-aesthetic practice, evoking questions about the sheer forming of a decorative, spatial order as well as issues relating to authorship.
tischistic point. These conditions form a sort of basic palette while the effects of sunfading, natural painting drip from various facade renovations and other age related effects are sometimes enhanced to serve a specific aesthetic obsession. Though monochrome in terms of one unifying color, the sun fading, drips of paint, or un-even amounts of layer of paint in the different panels give some of them a sense of color field paintings.
This year, Værslev chooses to present a new painting project called Garden paintings. It’s a solo project but like the recent Terrazzo project there are still collaborative perimeters present. The new works oscillate from being ready-made by nature into being carefully planned to serve a structural and aesthetic purpose set out by Værslev.
The oldest parts of the wood date back to the late 1980s and add a both sentimental, caring and humorous aspect. Aspects enhanced further by the nurturing act of adding arrangements of plants, thus proposing a potential shift from the monochrome to the coloristic. The plants are like collaborative agents that, regardless of its nature or color, will make the final brushstroke and relieving Værslev from the task. The arrangements aren’t left to the chances but could be seen as final, unifying and harmonizing high-end painting strokes linking the works to an arthistorical context as much as pinpointing Værslev’s own aesthetic sensitivity and integrity.

The wood panels used for the paintings have endured the hard Norwegian weather conditions over the past ten months, strategically placed around Værslev’s garden to mature over time.

Vanessa Billy, Alice Channer and Jill Spector all
use materials very deliberately, with a deep interest in their intrinsic qualities. In their works specific components often precede the concept of the final piece. The use of plaster, photography, fabric and found elements in Jill Spector’s case; concrete, found objects and imagery, paper and metal in Vanessa Billy’s work; and fabrics, paper, and marble in Alice Channer’s oeuvre guarantee an array of materials and a visual cacophony in a presentation uniting these three artists. This is enhanced by their very different approaches to making work. Channer’s work
is precisely organised and preconceived and often concerns itself with architecture and human dimensions. Spector shares her interest in the human body, but it is less its static form that is important to her, but rather the body in motion. All her sculptural work is made in a way that it encourages the viewer to walk around it and engage with it as if it were a performer or dancer. Billy, in contrast, has the most formal approach. Her individual works are often the result of endless experimentation with found materials, until they remerge in new constellations.

Nico Vascellari I Hear a Shadow, 2011 Bronze, iron, acids, three slideprojections (160 slides), sound system Variable dimensions, monolith: 430 x 210 x 117 cm Installation view at Bugada & Cargnel, Paris
A major actor on the Italian art scene, both an artist and a musician, Nico Vascellari combines sculptural installations with sound performances. Inspired by punk and experimental music, spiritualism and nature, he maps spaces, energies and sounds. I Hear a Shadows is a monumental monolith, the bronze cast of the detonated top of a marble mountain, played as a resonance chamber in collaborative performances. The monolith is illuminated by three projectors, which project alternately 160 slides reproducing as many collages made from magazines in which the artist cuts each page to keep only the monochromatic areas, creating multi-layers and multi-colored abstract compositions. In a kaleidoscopic effect, light and colors shroud the sculpture in as many sunsets, and draw the mountains’ shadow on the wall.
technique, used for example by Diego Vélasquez in Las Meninas, which doesn’t aim at creating a «photo reality» but focuses on information perceived by the human eye, ie essentially volumes and light, hence offering an original answer to the conceptual question of representation. Devereux applies this technique not to human beings or objects, but to small sculptures he makes from scraps of fabric and pieces of glass; non-figurative, these sculptures, when drawn with the technique described above, get animated with unsuspected life. The sculpture from which Ivo is based on, is a reconstruction of Matta Clark’s «Conical Intersect» based on the photo montage of the destroyed work arranged following the composition and chiaroscuro of Tiepolo’s frescos, which transform the spatial distortions of the photo montage back into three dimensions. With a strong visual impact, Devereux’s drawings stand on the edge between figuration and abstraction.

ration on the nature of a work of art: its relation to other works, its contexts, and the way artworks are used. Chambauds work never functions in isolation but finds its sense or its interest in a permanent dialogue with other works. They grow mutually rich, while gradually drawing the vague contours of a constellation made of common references. They work
as palimpsests, which guard the trace of a former work while proposing a new composition, thus oscillating endlessly between inescapable repetition and continuous new horizons. With Counter-History of Separation, Étienne Chambaud question the notion of the «Beheaded Museum», a museum of objects that are always and already written, a museum that is as much an exhibition than an exclusion space. 53

Tom Holmes’s latest sculptures and works on paper show a continued
interest in proposals for contemporary funerary monuments. The works easily transcend any explicit use value, however, revealing Holmes’s deep investment in form, color and composition. Often borrowing the language and motifs of popular advertising, Holmes takes on a staggering array of references, themes and techniques in works that deliver a mixture of hard-edged and frenzied abstraction combined with zany graphic design from pop culture.

With an omnivorous appetite for material drawn from fine art and the wider visual culture, Holmes has developed a unique aesthetic sensibility. Vernacular images are abstracted into strange amalgams, as his mixture of photography, drawing, painting, and collage resists the hierarchy of medium. His attention is often focused on the works’ supports, which germinate from diverse substrates: from vintage textiles, and newsprint posters, to wooden bulletin poles and painted cinderblocks. The mingling of minimalist and popular culture referents conflates icons of mass media with the solemnity of funerary markers. Soft sculpture takes on the appearance of textile shrouds. Abstract, rectilinear forms function as proposals for concrete or stone grave markers while thin, bent metal torques may support complex floral arrangements and commemorative wreaths. He builds the singular elements of such readymade forms – cereal boxes, ikebana floral arrangements, car chassis – into supports upon which he enacts a fusion of highly-keyed abstraction and the anxiety of the inevitable.

Alex Frost’s beguiling and detailed works delicately haggle with a compromised minimalist ideal. In essence, this anti-macho perspective engages processes historically relegated to craft. Frost orients himself by working in infinitely vacillating series. The work presented by Frost for Liste 2011 is a conflation of some seemingly distinct strands of his practice. The drawings and sculpture were all made as gifts or exchanges and are in effect on loan from their owners’ for the duration of Liste. In the context of an art fair this is intended as both a generous and playful gesture. On the one hand giving provenance to the owners’ work and on the other presenting works that are not for sale in the context of the art market.
Sophie Macpherson makes sculptures, drawings and
garments which are often presented in close proximity, suggesting interrelated fictions or narratives. Her recent films unite all these forms and investigate the relation between movement and objects. Macpherson utilizes her sculptural works, and drawings thus recontextualising them in time and space, with figures interacting within these «sets» to animate them. These often repeated actions become ritualistic and theatrical, with the activity developing both within and outside of the camera frame. In 2011, Macpherson presented a solo show at Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow and will be creating a live performance with Clare Stephenson for Tramway, Glasgow. Her band «Muscles of Joy» members including Victoria Morton, Katy Dove and Anne Marie Copestake are due to release their first album this year.

Although the legacy of Surrealism is everywhere traceable in the collages, photography and sculptures of Raphael Danke, he wittily re-envisages that legacy in the context of the society of the spectacle. In a series of collages created by the artist from the pages of fashion magazines, the fashion industry is positioned as a mechanism for distorting and disembodying effects the model’s attire is referenced in the title of the work, but her face and figure are absent from the resultant collage, or only her bizarrely over-coiffed hair remains – crimped, curled, flat-ironed or blowing in an artificial breeze.

Mark Barrow’s paintings revolve around the structure and geometries of weaving, both as material substrate and conceptual framework. Barrow paints on complex textiles hand-loomed by Sarah Parke, most apparent in the unprimed edges of each painting. Meticulously dotted layers of paint alternately reinforce or resist the loomed patterns and coalesce as a perceptual palimpsest of the underlying woven «map» unique to each painting. For Liste 16, Barrow presents a new series that follows increasingly dynamic logics, rendering patterns that at first adhere to the formal parameters of traditional textiles, only to slip away into randomized designs that run counter to them. More pronounced explorations of color correspond to the mathematical logistics of how a loom functions and are expressed not only through what is painted but also what is left unpainted in order to emphasize the fabric’s hues as an integral component of the finished surface.

FORT Fort Hatchery Works
The artist collective FORT, consisting of Anna Jandt, Jenny Kropp and Alberta Niemann, creates room installations and performances which vacillate on the threshold between art and everyday life. Their works mark points of simultaneity where fiction and reality merge. In blurring the boundaries between truth and pretense, sense continually withdraws from its definitive configuration. Sequences of repetitive actions stretch spatial and temporal dimensions in a precise choreography of life-like simulation. Fleeting and artificial, these spaces subtly encourage viewers to become mute spectators of the spectacle occurring around them. FORT develops a game between the stasis of establishment and the speculative prospects of what is yet to come.

Christian Flamm realized a new series of eight draw-
ings inspired by 15th century mural drawing «Basler Totentanz» (Dance of Death). The series at Basel was made famous through the copperplates that Matthäus Merian created in 1616–1649. Personifying death in that way, cheerful and in the mood for a dance, was a not common theme of art during that period.
The work of Christian Flamm reveals the false mechanism of images and ideas imposed by mainstream media. His point of view is the one from a critical distance, a sort of veto to adhesion or refusal. It’s a different understanding of history.
Nicola Gobbetto projected a site specific installa-
tion referred to Swan Lake, the ballet that Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky composed in 1875–1876. The work is thought as a stage where two shapes evoke corps half humans and half animals. It concerns two dis-
tant realities connected on the basis of the common age between childhood and adulthood. This season of life is investigated by Nicola Gobbeto in his artistic production as metaphor of a material and spiritual condition.

In a series of spectral oil paintings, Sascha Braunig reimagines the studio portrait. With saturated colors and an hypnotic style, the works reflect upon illusion and surface. The artist produces uncanny atmospheres, where costume, make-up, and décor engulf the body. In dream-like scenes that foreground repetition and patterning, Braunig’s models emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power and fragility. Their markers of individuality – their faces, gender, even bodies – are masked, overshadowed or absent.

While Braunig’s paintings recall Magritte, they also evoke the spirit of performance artist Leigh Bowery whose startling costuming often encased his body. Like Bowery’s «looks», her baroque armors enigmatically reveal a dark yet playful wit within. Sascha Braunig currently lives and works in Portland, ME. She holds an MFA in painting from Yale University.

Ivan Seal takes an object from memory or simply a
series of words and begins by painting an immediate reaction, a process close to the idea of group improvisation in music. The results vary from Philip Gustonesque cartoonish mis-en-scenes, to thick impasto renderings, to soft-grey clay inventions. The absurd is always present, often accompanied by a
looming darkness. The paintings, however, avoid sinking into existential gloom through their sense of humour, expressed at times as a matter-of-fact dumbness.
Jess Flood-Paddock reanimates the vernacular
through sculptures which present alternative and failed versions of ordinary objects such as a raspberry, a pile of newspapers, or balls of wool. Some sculptures seem to represent «sculpture» itself – a public monument, a Neolithic stone – and some to represent the act of making – a swoop of the hand, a
crush of the fist. Made from unfired clay and partially painted, they have a rough and at times amateurish feel, though that doesn’t mask her serious intent. These are works shaped by the formative influences of Thek, Fischli & Weiss, Gober, Genzken and West, but still remain the expression of a very singular mind.

Nick Austin’s paintings and sculptures are concerned with the tools and detritus of one’s work habits. Often using paper as both material and subject, Austin’s work circles ideas of composition and contemplation, reflecting both the material and thought processes used in their making. The series of paintings presented at Liste 16 are formalist but made as if in an absurd, New Yorker cartoon-like situation. The works feature schematic pictures of to-be-written postcards, imagining the mail artist as a doodle-nothing correspondent.

The reoccuring themes in Dan Rees´ work are ideas surrounding conversation, diversion, translation, and compilation. In his «Plasticine Paintings» one cannot help thinking of Jackson Pollock´s «drippings», where the act of making can be seen to compete for privelege with the idea of composition.
At the heart of his investigation are the ambiguous yet simple gestures that make something «art», whilst crucially maintaining a conceptual distance from painting and sculpture. Corentin Hamel

tural to pictorial and tends to explore three-dimensional acts within flat spaces. Elements from previous pieces of work are often reused in new ones, entertaining this dynamic. This transformation and cannibalization opens a dialogue with History of Art. Frames, canvases, collages, papier-mâché and plas-
ter are used as so many elements for construction, and make up a flexible typology. References to European «Avant-gardes» come out almost naturally as Florian Schmidt`s work explores by nature, construction, the founding elements of what constitutes a piece of work. Corentin Hamel

Transitions, connections and changes between different places and times are characteristic of Matthias Bitzer’s work groups, which are based on his interest in the existential structures when constructing identity. Historical personalities, whose biographies are marked by contradictoriness and gaps, are frequently the protagonists of Matthias Bitzer’s research as Joseph Conrad (1857–1928) or Fernando Pessoa (1888– 1935). Matthias Bitzer is not concerned with the narrative illustration of the respective biographies, but is instead always interested in the subjective changeability of reality. He translates the fragility of meaning and content into abstract narrative codes: Thus, the installation of his paintings, sculptures, collages, and drawings sets them in narrative relations to each other and turns the existing exhibition space into a setting for new stories. Matthias Bitzer has shown his solo exhibition at Kunstverein Hannover and received the Otto Dix Award of City Gera in 2010. Further he has participated at group exhibitions as at Kunsthalle Krems (AU); Projects Arts Centre Dublin, IE and Marta Herford Museum (DE) where his works are part of the permanent collection. In 2011 he will show his 3rd solo exhibition at Galerie Kadel Willborn in Karlsruhe.
In Adrian Williams’ conceptually narrative works, explorations of spaces both literal and fictitious are presented as performance, film and works on paper. The physical and symbolic use of sound has been both a tool for and subject in her recent works. She invents fictional characters and embeds them in part in real situations. The work on paper «Up» is part of a new work complex that apparently combines documentary photographs associatively with prose-like texts handwritten by Adrian Williams. Often the spoken word only temporarily takes on a spatial presence, as in the performance «At Hand» (2010). The title alludes to something that is about to happen or is just taking place. «At Hand» sets a short story to music live with a composer, musicians and a noise maker. The piece portrays the suspenseful story of a fictional protagonist whose luggage goes missing at Frankfurt Airport. At Liste we present the LP record of this performance as a sound piece. Adrian Williams has shown solo presentations at Art Statements / Art Basel (2010), at Art Production Fund LAB, New York (2009) and at Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden (2007). She has been awarded with the artist-in-residency program «Art Space», San Antonio, Texas and has participated at group exhibitions at MMK Museum fur Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt and at Heidelberger Kunstverein.

Thea Djordjadze’s installations and sculptures open
the stage on the curtains of memory: the memory of a process that appears still in the making and the memory of lived scenarios. Materials like plaster, wood and ceramic, along with fabric are assembled in what looks like an almost intuitive process, creating compositions that are often structured as architectural settings, in which the modernist language seems buried by the dust of time and repositioned within atemporal essentiality.
The practice of Matt Sheridan Smith often takes notions of subtraction, ellipsis and absence as its starting point. While investigating the processes and conditions of both making and experiencing art, the artist scrutinizes the complex ways that meaning and value are constructed in the world.
Shannon Ebner seeks to broaden her investigation of language to include the linguistic potential of the photograph itself, moving towards the construction of a mercurial visual system that includes images, objects, wallpaper, applications of text phrases and videos. Ebner’s work can be seen as an ongoing investigation of visual and photographic semiotics.

The work of Latifa Echakhch is based on the deconstruction and representation of identity and cultural symbols. In her multimedia practice, including installation, sculpture, video, interventions and actions, the artist decontextualizes objects loaded with cultural and political saliency and repositions them within a minimalist language.

In this system, Kokesch’s (art)objects can alter and vary their meaning, as, based on the signs and properties associated with them, our perception ascribes ever-newer meanings to them. In other words, objects can be perceived as always new and different things, while they do not necessarily need to change in terms of their physical compositions; it is enough to modify their range of signs. For this, however, it is not our mechanisms of perception that must be given a new basis; it is enough – for the artist – to inter-
vene in the process of sign-generation. In Kokesch’s case, the functions associated with the meanings of objects are merely imitated by the works, which operate as meanings. His artworks can easily be perceived as objects of everyday use without them having to actually fulfil their functions, as the objects merely examine the potential perceptibility of signs, patterns and schemes.
Tamás Kaszás. Contacts between members of dif-
ferent cultures can often produce misunderstandings. The phenomena called cargo cult is based also on such misunderstandings. Cargo cult is a religious practice that has appeared in many traditional tribal societies in the wake of interaction with technologically advanced cultures. The cult focuses on obtaining the material wealth (the «cargo») of the advanced
culture through magic and religious rituals and practices. These cultural differences are not exclusively the result of geographical separation but also being placed at another time-line. The artist designed a fictive anthropological object that could have been made out of nostalgia by a neo-primitive society after the collapse of our modern society

KOW BERLIN, located in Brandlhuber’s building in
Berlin-Mitte’s Brunnenstraße no. 9, was founded in 2009. The gallery’s conceptual agenda is rooted in our conviction that the social dimension of artistic practices is what makes them helpful in understanding the conditions, and in influencing the modes, of our individual and collective lives. The curatorial formats of KOW’s exhibitions aim to present and qualify works of art as contributions to today’s cultural and political debates. For LISTE 16, we are bringing together three German artists of the same generation to whom «identity» is neither a given essence nor merely something to be constructed. Rather, identity appears as a fragile, uncertain, and performative state of relation to given social and spatial conditions without any guarantee that there is a reliable place or concept for one’s own position in the world.

Andreas Golinski gehört derzeit zu den interessantesten deutschen Nachwuchskünstlern. In Mailand und Essen lebend, vollzieht er einen Brückenschlag zwischen der italienischen Arte Povera und einem konzeptuell angelegten Minimalismus. Das radikal Neue in Golinskis künstlerischer Arbeit begründet sich in der Direktheit, mit der er mittels einer harten Materialsprache äußerst sensible Beschreibungen von der Zerbrechlichkeit der menschlichen Existenz entwirft.
Andreas Golinski is one of the most interesting emerg-
Exploring the blurred borders between memory, private and collective unconsciousness and architecture, the German artist succeeds in producing a poetic synthesis of contemporary spatiality, a continuum without friction designed by Deleuzian folds where space and time seem to touch one another, head and tail.
«Ich war etwa 14–18 Jahre alt, ich wusste nicht, dass ich vielleicht Kunst machte, denn es gab niemanden in meinem Umfeld, der sich damit auskannte. Ich habe in alten Essener Fabriken riesenhafte Eingriffe vorgenommen und hatte dennoch nie zuvor von Gordon Matta Clark gehört. Heute dagegen kenne ich viel, aber ich bin wenig davon beeinflusst.»

What is radically new about Golinski’s artwork is the immediacy of his incredibly sensitive sketches conveying the fragility of human existence, and his use of a tough material language to achieve this.

For LISTE 16, LABOR will present the work of artists that are analyzing and transforming the ideas of taxonomy and archive; how the manipulation of informa-
tion creates different ideas of reality. The work of the following three artists will be presented: Erick Beltrán, Irene Kopelman and Jorge Satorre.
Jorge Satorre The Erratic. Measuring Compensation (detail), 2009–2010
«Modelling Standard» by Erick Beltrán and Jorge Satorre takes as a point of departure the radical historiographic turn introduced by Carlo Ginzburg in the 1970s who focused on localized, popular and disregarded micro-histories rather than universal, overarching versions. The title «Modelling Standard» references the scientific concept of the Standard Model used in physics to explain the almost invisible interactions occurring between subatomic particles.
On this occasion, the critic and curator Adam Kleinman will participate on behalf of the artists and in an almost theatrical manner take on the role of Satorre and Beltran, becoming a character in this web of relationships. He will explain some of the associations made by the artists while incorporating his own interpretations.
Erick Beltrán Ríndete (Give up), 2006 Installation and 1500 posters with instructions

In conjunction and with the intention of marking a difference, Irene Kopelman will present «Notes on the variety of potato». The proposal is based on a project that the artist started to develop in Peru, in
relationship with the biodiversity of the Andean potatoes. The project includes a series of drawings and small sculptures depicting and cataloguing the biodiversity of the local potato production.

In the work «After Day and Night» by Ane Mette Hol, the relationship between original and drawn reproduction is at center. The work is based on a series of webcam images documenting a full day and night, the changing light and weather in the landscape outside of a window. Still images are reproduced as drawings, then scanned and put together as an animated film that reflects the slow objective reality already documented by the camera. A web-based 24 hours version of the film can be seen on www.anemettehol.com. Whereas much art today is inclined to pose as science, Toril Johannessen’s work often have the appearance of being the poetic surplus that remains from genuine research work. Her works uncover similarities in the way science and art are done, drawing one’s attention to the creative elements fundamental to the development of all knowledge.

Kristin Nordhøy’s work is often a result of her exploration of the proper-
ties of the medium in question. She works with several different techniques where traces of the work process become a natural part of her works. It is the sculptural qualities of the medium in use that mainly concern Nordhøy and not the traces of the hand. Nevertheless, her works are hand crafted and carefully executed, and this contrast between the absence and the presence of the artist gives her work a new contemplative dimension.

The core of the presentation at Liste is the work of two young Italian artists, Giorgio Andreotta Calò and Rossella Biscotti. Calò is, amongst other things, interested in specific, strange objects he finds in the Laguna of Venice – his native city – and in their potentially symbolic meaning. These found objects, like mooring poles, skulls and bones are transformed in enigmatic and occult art works. Biscotti uses found
documents with a political or social content from a recent past. In some of their recent works both artists cast this found material for example in bronze, metal or concrete in order to create bigger installations from the casts. Both artists also orchestrate (public) performances in which social and political issues are used as subject matter.

For the past two years Sean Edwards has been resident in a semi-derelict modernist shopping centre, Maelfa, in a suburban Welsh community where he grew up. Edwards poignantly captured the failed aspirations and final life in the edifice which was once a bustling utility and pillar of utopian aspiration. LL: Why are forlorn themes of urban remains and human failure prevalent in your work? SE: To me it is in the detritus, the peripheries of life, that truths can be found. My interests are cited not in failure but in expectations that lead to failure and disappointment. It is in this minutiae that works can be teased out to piece together a past, present and a glimpse at future. LL: Is it fair to say there is a thread through your work in which the passion for formality overrules sentimentality towards the subject?

SE: Yes of course. I’m drawn to the objects, images and situations I use because of their formality. The sentimentality of the subject forms the palate from which the works are found and developed. They are the small stories elicited secondarily by breathing in and out the formalities of shapes, colours, depths and forms.

1997, an artist form Cameroon seized on Kelly, the House’s mascot, giving it a new face. Envisaging it. Embroidering it on rustic canvas using red, white and blue glass beads. Turning it into a character, with a handle for a nose, a strap for a smile. Bringing it to life, surrounded by the geometrical figures of traditional art. Cult of Nothing • Family Ties is a complex grouping of close tones that emerge out of the shadows. The colors in the half-light become de-saturated, creating a dreamy and tender softness. It is a portrait hidden in muted, dusky, oiled layers in shades that become indistinct and blend together. • Material stripped bare, absence and a lack of ornament, a discourse without digressions, strata added like the page of a book are the inspiration for Surprise of Being. We uncover a neutral range, mild and inexpressive, covered with oxygenated greens. Lunar is a cool understatement of grays that open up onto two secret worlds of wonder. Red energizes and shakes the calm. A soft, natural gold carries a hint of warmth and a glimpse of hope. SOCK PUPPET CLUSTERFUCK HONEYCOMB PAL

Numerous young artists today refer to older artists as role-models. It is important to question the position of the former in relation to the latter. Are they mere fans? Do they manipulate the aura of the older artist for their own purposes? Should «reference» automatically mean «reverence», a play on word which would reveal the vertical relationship between a master and his/her student?
Aurélien Froment A Soleri Bell (Cosanti Originals) Scottsdale, June 2002, 2011 Silkscreen print 160 x 120 cm
Marcelle Alix’s proposition for Liste 16 revolves around works by Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Charlotte Moth and Aurélien Froment in respective relation to Adrian Piper (1948–), Raoul Hausmann (1886–1971) and Paolo Soleri (1919–). In «For Adrian Piper (10 drawings of Pontus Hulten at 10000$/hour)», Abonnenc does more than pay a tribute to the African-American artist, he creates a community of thought with her and updates the relevance of her work, pointing out the politics of genre at stake in the portrait. Charlotte Moth’s new installation works, «Noting Thoughts», were produced in connection with Raoul Hausmann’s archive for her solo exhibition at Musée de Rochechouart in France (March 2011). Like her 2010 project around the architecture of Robert Mallet-Stevens, «Noting Thoughts» re-works the essence of the elder artist’s production. Aurélien Froment’s experience of Paolo Soleri’s architecture in Arcosanti (Arizona) has been fueling his work since 2002. Taken out of its original context, the image of the bell – designed by Soleri and sold as a souvenir in Arcosanti – acquires the status of a screen onto which we are invited to project our subjectivity. By questioning the content and impact of their elders’ works through a reworking of their reception context, Abonnenc, Froment and Moth shed a significant light on contemporary practices, which go beyond appropriation and «reverence». They blur a vertical, traditional relationship, to constitute trans-historical groups. MA

«Ciprian Mureşan belongs to a generation who looks at the world from a twofold perspective: having witnessed an epoch when people learnt to chronically mistrust each other but when their lives were (or seemed to be) much easier in their structure, purpose and expectations, while at the same time having moved with young eyes to another epoch, fast in bringing on the shelves the material shape of any glamorous wish and even faster in revealing the conditionings which make that shape volatile and futile, this generation is critically nostalgic. Ciprian Mureşan
and his generational peers are not mourning for the past, but try to find the pillars still holding in a pile of wreckage. They do not seek to bluntly reject the inconsistencies of the present, but look for the multiple roots of the ideologies sold on the markets of the moment. They are also foretelling the future, with the detachment which allows for their prophecies to be taken with a grain of doubt, to be seen only as projections of things which have already happened.» Raluca Voinea, from the text «(De)liberated gestures.

Alessandro Ceresoli draws his inspiration for this project from a six-months stay in Asmara where he reflected upon the history of one of the Italian ex-colonial territories. There he found himself surrounded by a new landscape, rationalist buildings of the colonial period of the 20’s and 30’s. Reinterpreting the space and bringing it to new perspectives, the artist has created there glass sculptures having strong referrals to Asmara’s urban Fascism architecture.
Giulio Frigo’s threads create geometrical shapes
floating in the space. It is scientifically tested that geometrical shapes satisfy both left and right brain sides, respectively the analytic and the emotional area. What makes these mental architectures so fascinating is their universality (they can be contemplated each time by anyone) and their timelessness (they are formally always valid and they don’t suffer the action of time).

Mandla Reuter reworks the usual relations with a given place turning them into protagonists of the artist’s work. The traditional distinction between single works and installations gives way so that everything that he inserts in the environment contributes toward altering the interpretation of that place. These new works show upside down views of the Los Angeles horizon and turn over the usual point of view of a landscape opening the gaze to infinite interpretations.

Antonio Rovaldi’s work moves around the relative themes and perceptions of spaces and landscapes, always showing the inter-relation between different mediums such as photography, video, sculpture and drawing. The distance between different spaces and the crossover between their physical and mental spheres – imaginary as they may well be – has
developed as the artist’s constant field of research. For the occasion of Liste 2011, Antonio Rovaldi presents a project based on the legendary figure of the swiss writer Robert Walser (Bienne, 1878 – Herisau, 1956) consisting in a series of photographs, drawings and a ceramic sculpture.
Through the use of painting collage, drawing, video and installation, Ian Tweedy’s work follows two main research lines: on the one hand the past and history as immense archives of images that have to be rescued and transformed, on the other hand the experience of Street Art and Graffiti as a form of creativity that must constantly deal with everyday life in a hectic urban reality.
The series of new works by Tweedy, «Mucha and Machine», inspired by the cult artist Alphonse Mucha, is composed of a number of equally sized poster/ study-like drawings, all drawn in a very classical dark Ingres-ish style, some unfinished, some super refined, some resembling simple traces, most drawn in different grades of oil paint.
Francesco Arena’s work combines a strong political element with a recovery of archaic crafts and traditions typical of southern Italy. Through his sculptures and installations the artist channels the memory of Italian and international historical events into works that frequently appear as monuments to some of the most dramatic episodes of our history.
The project «Parola», presented at Liste, involves the artist carving slabs of stone that are then placed in various locations. Each slab will have engraved on it a Morse code using a grinding machine, corresponding to a name chosen by the artist and not referred to any person in particular.

Everything and Nothing Both Wilfredo Prieto and Ignacio Uriarte use common objects to materialise their artistic ideas, in a conceptual approach that bares witness of the object’s poetic dysfunctionality in everyday life. Also, the philosophical or artistic contents of their works cannot escape a somewhat vernacular reading – thus its yearnings transcend the context and impregnate the works. Pens, breadcrumbs, matches, paper clips, etc. become objects of artistic importance (not like a ready made – as their sculptural quality is null – but closer to a povera approach emphasizing their material qualities): it is the catalogue of meanings inscribed in each of these objects what interests Prieto and Uriarte in order to give it another twist with a new title, or a new use. Following an exercise of synthesis made by both artists, the equation that underlies these works is: neat idea – formal simplicity – maximum significance.
Wilfredo Prieto Eclipse, 2011 Coins 2.5 x 3 cm
In any case, both artists seek a state of reflection by altering these objects and situations to the point of denaturalization. It is the conceptual approach to the use of common objects that draws a difference between the artists’ practice: Prieto may address transcendental matters from a more playful and visceral point of view, whereas Uriarte appeals to a process of seriousness and thorough meditation. Also, their subject matters vary in scope – from Wilfredo’s use of organic, edible materials to Uriarte’s fixation with office supplies.

Dan Attoe’s oil paintings recall the great American experience, the
Dean Sameshima’s silk-screens on canvas and pho-
frontier and the life of the introspective, hard working man who uses his confidence, hard work and tenacity to make it in the world. Drawing heavily upon his life moving around the Mid West and North West, Attoe creates unique narratives which allow the viewer to experience his paintings and sculptures as if they where diary entries loaded with imagery, text and symbolism.
tographs are continued investigation into a world of maleness, nostalgia, desire and fetish. This body of work references the punk rock and DIY movements that have surrounded and informed the artist since his teens and expands on his Warholian practice

While not always explicitly tied to the artist’s own history and often calling to mind societal attitudes towards «the other», Sameshima’s work also functions in a framework of internal struggles between social normatively and feelings of alienation.

Berlin based painter Peter Wheeler’s large-scale oil paintings present scenes in which modern male archetypes like the rocker, the biker and the loaner duke it out in a nonlinear narrative which spans Wheeler’s practice. These masterly crafted works celebrate outlaws who are shown in the midst of racing their cars, drinking beers, smoking, often with their backs turned to the viewer but always with a strong sense of purpose. At the same time these accepted archetypes of toughness are subverted by both introspection and sensibility. Pete Wheeler has exhibited extensively in New Zealand and Australia as well as in Europe and the United States.

Decisively and mysteriously, Adrian Ghenie’s paintings are about history: its low-resolution images and inconclusive data, the vulnerability and distrust it leaves in its wake, a procession of victims and culprits walking side by side. The works register how historiographic discourse derails in complicated images, via awkward postures of figures half-obscured, between the props of historical unfolding – the pedestals or sarcophagi behind which its more or less evident protagonists lurk. With nothing in its right place, the paintings amass an incomplete iconography of obsolescence, haunted by shadowy intuitions of the grotesque, of a farce waiting to return as tragedy. The moments and episodes Ghenie re-orchestrates for his paintings are not the inevitable outcome of their past, nor are we their future confirmation: they are the incongruous sediments of time past.
Perhaps the most striking feature of Gabriela Vanga’s work is its temerity in addressing concerns that could not be more unfashionable; furthermore, to do so on a tone that does not eschew or downplay the gravity of these questions, and via operations that very often verge on the symbolic, a stylistic device with which recent art has a profoundly ambivalent relationship. Life, education, death, the contours and unrest of contemporary subjectivity – construed as the agonic prey of so many antagonisms – are recuperated as «stills from an infinite movie» (as an older exhibition title stated), as freeze-frames from a continuous projection of society trudging towards its collective destination.

Istvan Laszlo believes that the most important role of art is its power to reshape our understanding of history and the contemporary world, he investigates our relationship with reality through this lens. In his work, Laszlo is not limited by any one technique, he carefully chooses the most appropriate media for his artistic concepts. As a consequence we face a variety of media, from sculpture to drawing, photography and video, these he ties together with one important
element: duality. Laszlo’s work deals with opposites or contrasting elements and raises questions of how we relate to visual references stored deep in our collective consciousness. His work, often tinged with black humor, evolved directly from the artist’s background, his childhood experiences of 80’s communist Romania and the countries transition period. Mihnea Mircan

Li Ming works primarily with video. In his early age,
he has already differentiated himself for his pure and innocent way of entering the very personal sphere of our sensorial perception. His videos are in fact timeless and space-less narratives, where he subtlety seduces the audience through portrayal of sometimes-fastidious sometimes-absurd situations.

Jin Shan realizes works in different media, from painting to video, photo and installation, whose common message aims at exploring, expressing and recording one individual’s self-experience. He highlights the conflicting dialogue between real life and artistic creation, playing with his audience, who is often triggered, amused and confused by the allegories of his artistic composition.

Chen Wei is creating an imaginary scenery often based on a collection of memories or an archive of everyday objects. He realizes life-size settings, which he takes photographs of, using a high definition or analogical camera. His fable-like compositions not only portray physical and mental spaces but are also an invitation to enter labyrinth-like narratives.

The House of Bees This project has been especially conceptualized on the occasion of LISTE and in accordance with the peculiar nature and architecture of the space. Reviving the labyrinthine asset of the Warteck building in Basel, the show «House of Bees» design a similar
structure to present practices of four Chinese artists Platform China work with. The image of the house of bees, or as we will call it beehive, stands here as a visual metaphor as well as a physical language for the anthology of artistic ideas and attitudes these artists stem out for.
of artists in China, through his pictorial compositions, Zhou Yilun criticizes and satirizes problems such as human intervention in the environment, the twisted eroticism and the collision of violence with very personal approaches. Characterized by strong brushstrokes and quite sensational titles, the content of his bold compositions provokes the viewer’s senses and challenges the aesthetic experience in a very uncommon way.

For their presentation at Liste 16, The Young Art Fair in Basel 2011, Elisa Platteau and Patrick Vanbellinghen have invited one of their gallery artists – Valérie Mannaerts. Valérie Mannaerts first rose to international prominence through her presentation in the Belgian Pavilion at the 2003 Venice Biennial, where she exhibited together with Sylvie Eyberg. Mannaerts’ work in the extended field of drawing, installation and video has been exhibited extensively in Belgium – most recently in an ambitious survey show of Brussels’ flourishing arts scene at Wiels Contemporary Art Centre, named Un-Scene – as well as in 2010 at Extra City (Kunsthal Antwerp) and a solo show in de appel (Arts Centre Amsterdam). Abroad her work has been seen in art centres and galleries in Canada, the Netherlands, Spain and Germany. In 2007 she was the central featured artist in a Documenta special issue published by monographic Belgian art magazine A Prior. Mannaerts has been active in a wide array of media, but in recent years has concentrated most of her efforts on the question of sculpture and sculptural form. Her current forays into sculptural abstrac-
Solo show at LISTE 16 Valérie Mannaerts, BE, 1974
tion raise age-old questions with regards to the medium’s limits and liminal possibilities: do draperies, pedestals and similarly contextualizing «belong» to a sculpture? Can an artwork be fully autonomous, or is it anchored instead in its connection to the world? Her recent solo shows abroad and her exhibition at the gallery form the basis for Valérie Mannaerts’ first monograph published by Sternberg Press and her solo project for Liste 16.

Talia Chetrit’s photographs rely on the inherent deception of photography to play with contradictions, oppositions and impossibilities. Chetrit’s practice is specific to her studio and is often a performative or intuitive conversation between the objects and the artist. Using traditional photographic props and subjects such as hands, vases and the female nude, Chetrit’s images question, expand upon and collapse the historical methods of photography. The formal qualities of these objects and interactions supersede their literal reading, yet this should not read as a reduction. Chetrit aims to emphasize the contradictions and impossibilities of our expectations, ultimately revealing the edges of how a viewer engages with the visual world.

Underpinning Diogo Pimentao’s work is his use of drawing as a form of contact between material and surface by means of a repetitive – and at times blind – gesture. His drawings are the result of a process that involves a pre-determined «choreography», which the artist sometimes stages as performances during his exhibitions. These lead to abstract series of imprints, marks, lines and pencil strokes. Paper is often crumpled, folded and unfolded or cut up to create additional surfaces and lending it volume. At the boundary of sculpture and image, Diogo Pimentao’s drawings are enigmatic in terms of how they have been produced. Often those that look as if they have been fashioned with the help of mechanical processes have actually been made by hand, and vice versa.
Graphite, either in its solid or dust form, is the recurring source of numerous drawings. The trace of a carefully prepared gesture, or the imprint of the artist’s moving body, cling to a surface. Furthermore, raw graphite itself is used by Pimentao to create sculptural objects. They are made to resemble the flint tools knapped by prehistoric man, or arranged into ritual-like necklaces. In his most recent work, the artist inscribes objects, such as pieces of found chipped flint, eggshells and even earth with minimal gestures typically associated with drawing. The objects are used both as an extension of surface and in a bid to find diverse drawing tools. They are often displayed on work tables where books, words, drawn lines and objects’ traces, together, create new meanings.

Die Arbeiten der Serie «Content is a Glimpse» – ein Zitat von de Kooning – basieren auf Abgüssen von Vögeln, die ich tot vorgefunden habe, weil sie gegen die Scheiben meiner Atelierfenster geflogen sind. Für mich ist ihr Schicksal unter anderem eine Metapher für das Dilemma des Malers. Diese Vögel starben, weil sie an eine Illusion glaubten. Ich habe sie so abgiessen lassen, dass die bizarren Formen der Gusskanäle erhalten blieben, sodass es jetzt ausschaut, als würden sie wieder auf den Ästen von Bäumen sitzen.
The works from the series «Content is a Glimpse» – which is a quote from de Kooning – are based on casts from birds I found dead after they had flown into the windows of my studio. To me their fate is, amongst others, a metaphor for the painter’s dilemma. These birds died because they believed in an illusion. I had them cast in such a way that the bizarre forms of the sprues were retained, so that now they look as if they are again sitting on tree branches.

Wojciech Bąkowski’s works, apart their formal fi-
nesse and original artistic choices, are extremely honest and based on an existential experience. Reality is tangible, concrete, and at first of all audible. The city generates sounds, which Bąkowski uses in turn to talk about the city using wide range of artistic tools, from performance, audio-plays, sound objects and installations to animated movies and videos. His most significant achivement is a cycle of «Spoken movies», which arise consecutively in numbered parts, the terrain in which Bąkowski tests ways of combining animation and spoken word. In every movie he shifts the gravity in different way, applies different formal solutions and also exercise language testing it’s clearness.
Iza Tarasewicz focuses on the human being in his or her biology. The experience of the body is here the source of principal reflection and emotion. The artist concentrates on those fields of human life that are connected with mapping out private space and constructing identity, as well as constructing and protecting physical autonomy and integrity. Sculpture is another prominent area of interest for Tarasewicz; she uses diverse media and techniques in order to play with the positive-negative relation, choosing a minimalist reduction or a performer’s gesture. She analyzes states of social pathology, mental illness, states of extreme pain and fatigue. The materials she uses are, for instance, leather, steel, ash, concrete, clay, animal fat, and plasticine.

rical structures so as to show, by reworking the configurations they potentially offer, their inner complexity and their potential of inherent combinations, only to return to the starting point eventually. In «Dracula» the narrator freely combines existential observations with knowledge of physics and biology and a personal confession. The intellectual construction of the film is based on the narrator’s particular, intimate and bodily experience. Bosacki is a storyteller, capable of conveying condensed philosophical reflection within succinct narrations. The artist himself treats his «literary movies» as educational talks, where he conveys to the viewers his observations as if in a private conversation. Piotr Bosacki Dracula, 2011 Animated film

A Venn diagram is a mathematical illustration used to describe group dynamics and logical relations of inclusion and exclusion. During the period of dictatorship in Argentina in the 1970â€™s, citizens were not allowed to gather in groups larger than 8 people, as this was considered a threat to the government. At the same time group mathematics and Venn diagrams were banned from primary school programs as they provided a model for subversive thought. Caption which is part of the work

J. Parker Valentine’s work is deeply connected to, and rooted in, draw-
J Parker Valentine
ing. While her diverse practice spans film, photography, collage, and clay and fabric sculptures, her distinctive mark registers throughout. Developing narrative through abstraction is key for Valentine (b. 1980 in Austin, Texas); on her delicately balanced MDF panels, her drawings (and simultaneous erasure) might suggest the fragments of a figure or form, but it is the visibility of process that steers our encounter. Valentine seems to constantly pursue a definition of form while at the same time avoiding it. The non-resolution of her system of creation shifts our perception from a bidimensional surface to a sculptural level where innumerable composite concepts take form.

As continuation of his recent research, Pennacchio Argentato presents a series of works dealing with apparent fake and authenticity. The duo addresses the ideas of cloning and characterization, injecting a sequence of rectangular concrete forms with distinctly colorful tunes. With a unique, self-made aesthetics, the sculptures give a sensuous and tangible shape to an inner nature which is potential or possible. In the absence of certainty, real is committed to shifting colors which are performed on rectangular units and whose degree of suppleness turns their rugged strength into passivity. Thus, when reference is made to gender interaction, to perception of difference in repetition, of alterity in identity, the works penetrate to the core of perception.

Like a seasoned composer, Stelios Faitakis orchestrates mountains of aesthetic and conceptual references to the past, present, and the future in compositions that bear the weight of the world like the Byzantine paintings that adorn Greek Orthodox churches from which he takes inspiration. «What interested me are the inner similarities I found in many old religious art forms.» he explains- one of the common characteristics being the use of the color gold. «The use of gold as a means to signal a transcendental reality is common in Byzantine iconography, Persian miniature painting, Japanese painting, and Medieval German painting, to name just a few styles. Other common characteristics are complexity, a high level of detail, and the use of repeating patterns and elements. I was fascinated by those similarities in suggesting the presence of the divine. I consider this to be the core of my work.» Openly satirical, Faitakis’ paintings often present an aggressive social commentary, casting terrorists as saints and priests as sinners. Simultaneously, they convey a serene, sorrowful acceptance of human nature. Choosing paint over Molotov cocktails to express dissatisfaction with the status quo, Faitakis has become a painter of today’s godless world, where morals seem to fluctuate with the financial markets that partly define them. Clear and easily decipherable motifs allow viewers to enter into his visual allegory. He forsakes academic high-mindedness for simple communication storytelling – though the historical and theoretical influences are evident.

In his paintings, prints and ceramics, Peter Linde Busk employs a cast of characters to figure states of melancholia, dejection and failure. His celebration of the antagonist is inspired by playing cards, literature and popular culture, tending towards portrayals of those who sit high: Kings and knights prevail, their stature betrayed by their audacious attire. Violently patterned, his images draw on the starkly direct marks of Art Brut. Busk’s drive to fill space to excess means that the figure is often decorated to the point of parody, rudely mutated by his riches. Across his work Busk sets up moments of suspension. Recalling the ruptured landscapes of Casper David Friedrich, his semi-figurative ceramic objects undulate on the threshold between viscous mass and emerging detail, almost freezing a moment of alchemical change. Elsewhere graphic line «just» holds against the ballistic daubs gathering beneath and threatening a complete un-doing. The antagonist’s uniform becomes a buttress, a desperate attempt at keeping the body raised sky-wards. Busk’s chorus perhaps figure the agony of reaching an impasse. Having elevated themselves to the top, these former regents, now ridiculous, have nowhere left to go but down. But strangely, this moment of falling seems also affirmative. Bearing in mind that these are self-portraits, perhaps this moment becomes a fable for the positivity of the «un»; an ode to catastrophe’s liberating potential.

«Let us say we have chosen to speak nothing but the truth. Immediately, there is a Freudian problem: should we just speak the truth as it is, or should we first take into account the circumstances and the audience to which we are speaking? There is a great difference. If we just indicate the reality, we risk of being eaten by the wolf, just like this boy from Aesop’s fable who screamed for help but whom nobody would believe because of certain previous misadventures. If we go for the second option, we risk of losing the literal meanings of words. Communication of truth becomes something of a strategical activity. You have to know how words will be heard before you even start using them. Imagine trying to convince your psychoanalyst that you are finally healed! Wouldn’t it be like speaking with language itself instead of speaking within it? (…)»

Through the flaws of the human condition, Brunen seeks to reconnect with the world and its forces in his performative practice. In his film Plot (2009) we find that spiritual elevation might equally be found in the absence of clarity. It’s through his time-based works that we are made aware of the refractions of time that may or may not lead to a phenomenal disclosure; a state of grace obtained through the release of the self and an embrace of the unknown.

Reference to Franco Albini’s exhibition architecture coupled with Marcel Broodthaers take on museology provides certain focus to Cooter’s Lapidarium sculptures. Apparently alien sources blend with one another, both assuming and challenging connotations about their own existence in an installation where sculptural and natural forms become entwined and their co-dependency emphasised. The installation of sculptures as a whole becomes a place where the thoughtful merges with the thought up, where nature defies the nurtured and where the Pillar of the flagellation of Christ can be denounced to comparative matter.
