Martin John Callanan, Rebecca Partridge, Katie Paterson „A PLANETARY ORDER“

D

ie von Rebecca Partridge kuratierte Gruppenausstellung „A Planetary Order“ bringt drei Künstler/ innen zu- sammen, die sich in unterschiedlichen Medien mit der Er- forschung von Meta-Narrativen der Zeit, Landschaft und systematischer Abstraktion auf zugleich spielerische und ernsthafte Weise beschäftigen. Die Gegenüberstellung von Malerei, Skulptur und internetbasierten Arbeiten be- tont das gemeinsame Interesse an konzeptuellen Frage- stellungen der Künstler/innen, deren akribische minimalis- tische Ästhetik eine weitere Parallele bildet. Die Arbeiten oszillieren zwischen Ernsthaftigkeit und Humor, Romantik und Rationalität, Reduktion und erhabener Größe und vereinen dabei traditionelle künstlerische Arbeitsweisen mit aktuellster digitaler Technik. Die Ausstellung reflektiert ein wachsendes Interesse an der Rückkehr zu metaphy- sischen Themen, welche trotz ihrer Ernsthaftigkeit immer mit einer kritischen Distanz und einem Bewusstsein für das Komische beleuchtet werden. Der Titel der Ausstellung geht auf Martin John Cal- lanans Arbeit „A Planetary Order (Terrestrial Cloud Glo- be)“ zurück, einem 3D- bedruckten Globus, der direkt auf dem Galerieboden platziert ist und bei genauerer Betrachtung ein Wolkenbild eines präzisen Moments aufweist. Diese zunächst unscheinbare Arbeit ist tatsächlich eine ambitionierte Visualisierung von wissenschaftlichen Echtzeitdaten der Wolkenüberwachungssatelliten der NASA und der European Space Agency. Callanans Prinzip der Transformation von Daten zu Kunstwerken, die sowohl das Ausmaß von miteinander gekoppelten globalen Systemen als auch unseren Standort darin reflektieren, findet sich auch in seinem aktuellsten Werk „Departure of All“ wieder. Es handelt sich hierbei um eine internetverbundene Abflugsanzeige, welche die Flugin- formationen jedes internationalen Flughafens der Welt anzeigt. Die in Echtzeit aktualisierten Flugdaten geben einen schwindelerregenden Einblick in die Geschwindig- keit des globalen Verkehrs und verweisen zugleich auf einzelne realzeitliche Momente. Katie Patersons Arbeit „As The World Turns“ - ein entsprechend der Erdumdrehungsgeschwindigkeit ro- tierender Plattenspieler - bietet in seiner unmerklichen Langsamkeit einen Gegenpol zu Callanans Position. Nur dem aufmerksamsten Zuhörer offenbart sich Vivaldis „Vier Jahreszeiten“ über die Kopfhörer. Wie bei Callanan entfaltet sich auch Patersons Arbeit in einem weitaus größeren Raum als jenem, den das Kunstwerk einnimmt. Indem der Plattenspieler suggeriert, einen Blick auf die Erde herab zu ermöglichen, aktiviert Paterson einen so- wohl metaphysischen als auch komischen Imaginations- raum. An der großen Wand der Galerie hängt „Notes on The Sea“, ein Dyptichon in zwölf Teilen. In diesen seriel- len, fotorealistischen Gemälden zeigt Partridge ruhige, nebelverhangene Seestücke zu unterschiedlichen Ta- ges- und Nachtzeiten. Das urbildliche, romantische Sujet tritt dabei in einen Widerstreit mit sich selbst ein, indem es Teil eines Systems wird. Partridge spielt in ihren Bildern mit Dauerhaftigkeit, mathematischer Abstraktion und dem Schönen; ihr Versuch, den Inbegriff der romantischen Landschaft zu rationalisieren, erscheint zugleich medita- tiv und absurd.

A

Planetary Order curated by Rebecca Partridge brings together three artists who, though working in very different media, all explore meta-narratives of time, landscape and systematic abstraction with a combination of sincerity and playfulness. The juxtaposition of painting, sculpture and new media works emphasises the concep- tual concerns of the artists who also share a me- ticulous minimalist aesthetic. The works hover be- tween seriousness and humour, the romantic and the rational, reduction and sublime scale, all with- in a dialogue which encompasses works made both with highly traditional means and the most current new media technology. The exhibition re- flects a growing interest in a return to metaphysi- cal themes, which though sincere, is not without critical distance and awareness of the comical. The exhibition found its name in Martin John Callanan’s A Planetary Order (Terrestrial Cloud Globe) a 3D printed globe which, sitting directly on the gallery floor, on close inspection reveals the cloud cover of one single moment in time. This inconspicuous piece is in fact an ambitious ‘physical visualisation of real-time scientific data’ taken from cloud monitoring satellites overseen by NASA and the European Space Agency. Cal- lanan’s transformation of data into artworks which articulate both the enormity of interconnected global systems and our place within them, continues with his most recent work, Departure of All; a flight departure board displaying the flight information for every international airport around the world. Running in real time, the speed of global transit creates a dizzying account of single moments. Katie Paterson provides a counterpoint to this overwhelm with her imperceptibly slow work, As The World Turns; a record player which, rotating at the speed of the earth, plays Vivaldi’s Four Seasons audible through headphones to only the most attentive listener. As with Callanan, Paterson’s artwork occupies a space far greater than the actual work- activating an imaginative space which is both metaphysical and comic; the record player suggesting the turning earth which we are able to look down upon. Along the long wall of the gallery hangs Notes on The Sea, a (diptych in twelve parts) the series of twelve minimal photore- alist paintings calmly depicts fog veiled seascapes as polarities of night and day. In this work the ar- chetypal romantic image enters into a contra- diction with itself as it becomes part of a system. Playing with notions of duration, mathematic ab- straction, and the possibility of painting a beautiful landscape, Partridge’s attempt to rationalize the epitomised romantic landscape is both medita- tive and absurd.
