i never have a statement about my art. but i know for sure, my work is a work in progress. things are non stop moving. the world is changing like cr azy, contempor ary art is today this and tomorrow that, on top of that, myself, i am changing in a unavoidable biological pattern towards the end. nothing is ever steady. i want to speak about that and make art like writing a diary. go through my life, babbling about this and that. i am not looking for any conclusion, more so, i love confusion. that keeps me interested in things.

OLAF BREUNING

JOHN


Most of my imagery has a stodgy aspect, and plays with that as a theatrical trope. It's a pedantic posture. Instead of subversion, I would assign the value of dysfunction to painting.

MILLER

I want someone to look at a sculpture of mine and know that everything is intentional, and to do that in a way that`s not academic or fussy. And I think that someone can really feel that in a work, you know, you just feel when something is realized and when it`s not. You need a kind of philosophical distance from the work because these are objects of philosophy.

ОЛАФ БРЁНИНГ


OLAF BREUNING


Олаф Бренинг (США, 1970) – очень тонкий ироничный художник. Его творчество чрезвычайно многообразно и охватывает весь арсенал доступных медиа – фотография, скульптура, инсталляции, видео. Специально для московской выставки он создал группу из восьми мраморных скульптур, на которых выгравированы совершенно абсурдные по смыслу и элегантные по форме надписи. Таких эпитафий мир ещё не видел. Выставки художника проходят в авторитетных музейных и галерейных институциях по всему миру. Его работы представлены в постоянных музейных коллекциях, среди которых:

Olaf Breuning (USA, 1970) – is a sensitive artist whose works are full of irony embracing a wide variety of media, including photography, sculpture, installations and video. Specially for the Moscow display Olaf Breuning has created a group of eight marble sculptures with absurd in meaning but elegant in form inscriptions engraved on them. The world have never seen the Epitaphs like these.

В последние годы скульптуры и перформансы Олафа Брёнинга стали важным элементом городского ландшафта. В  карьере художника участие в таких резонансных публичных проектах, как City Hall Park exhibition «Lightness of Being» (2013), Happening of Station to station (2013), Miami Art Basel (2013). Прямо в  преддверии нашей Московской выставки, 4 марта 2014 в Центральном парке Нью Йорка была инсталлирована новая скульптурная группа О.  Брёнинга «Облака» высотой около 10 метров – самый крупномасштабный соло-проект художника для публичных пространств на данный момент.

Sculptures and installations by Olaf Breuning have become an essential part of urban landscape. The artist has participated in a large number of prestigious public projects, including City Hall Park exhibition «Lightness of Being» (2013), Happening of Station to station (2013), Miami Art Basel (2013).Before the Moscow show, on March 4th 2014, New York’s Central Park hosted the installation of Breuning’s new sculpture group - «The Clouds». The nearly 10-meter-tall sculpture is the artist’s largest open-air project so far.

The artist’s works are on display in famous museums and galleries worldwide and are also part of permanent museum collections including:

ТОНИ МАТЕЛЛИ


new GRAVITY


Tony Matelli


Тони Мателли (США, 1971) – один из самых ярких и многообещающих американских художников, в работах которого – то тонкое и труднодостижимое сочетание концепта, самых современных технологий и требовательного отношения к технике изготовления, к ремеслу в лучшем смысле этого слова. В прошлом ассистент Джефф Кунса, Тони Мателли развивает приобретённый опыт на новом уровне, остро переживая темы, волнующие его поколение, сохраняя при этом трепетное отношение к качеству производства, скрупулёзность и точность к мельчайшим деталям. Его творчество – за пределами всех норм политкорректности и  кодекса социального поведения. В  каждом его объекте – провокация, протест против игры по общепринятым правилам, агрессия как неотъемлемая часть окружающего нас мира. Темы одиночества, покинутости, упадка, беззащитности и, одновременно, живучести и сопротивляемости жизненным обстоятельствам – в фокусе его внимания. Скорее – это острое личное переживание важнейших эмоциональных состояний, совмещённое с  ироничным отношением прежде всего к себе и к абсурдности всего происходящего. Это стремление подвергнуть сомнению всё то, что кому-то казалось незыблемым; найти визуальные формы для передачи тонких философских понятий и смыслов. Московская выставка объединяет объекты, созданные художником в  течение последних пяти лет творчества, а  также совершенно новые работы, которые впервые будут представлены публике. В творчестве Мателли законы физики часто перестают быть очевидными. Подвергая сомнению действие гравитационных сил, он тотально перенастраивает привычную оптику, заставляет нас взглянуть на многие окружающие нас предметы и явления другими глазами, деформирует существующую реальность и создает новую. У Тони Мателли за плечами участие в многочисленных выставочных проектах в авторитетных музеях и галереях по всему миру, его работы представлены в постоянных коллекциях таких музеев как:

Tony Matelli (USA, 1971) – one of the most prominent and most promising American artists whose works reflect the subtle and ever-elusive combination of concept, contemporary technology, as well as the demanding attitude to technique and art in the best sense of the word. Once an assistant to Jeff Koons, Tony Matelli looks at the experience he has gained from a new angle deeply feeling the burning issues of the day while at the same time preserving a serious attitude towards the quality of his work and demonstrating scrupulous attention to detail. Matelli’s work reaches beyond the boundaries of political correctness and the social conduct code. Every of his objects incorporates a provocation, a protest against playing by the commonly accepted rules, and aggression as an integral part of the surrounding world. He focuses on loneliness, desolation, degradation, defenselessness and, at the same time, resilience and resistance to unfortunate circumstances. While demonstrating an acute personal response to basic emotions, Tony Matelli is ironic about himself and smiles at the absurdity of what’s happening around him. He is set on questioning everything what many thought unshakable; on striking the right visual forms to impart subtle philosophical concepts. The Moscow exhibition showcases the artist’s objects of the past five years and the brand new works which will see light for the first time. The laws of physics are no longer evident in Matelli’s works. Challenging the laws of gravitation, he utterly readjusts the optics thereby giving us a new picture of the objects and phenomena that surround us and transforming the existent reality into a new one. Tony Matelli’s works have been on display in a large number of prestigious museums and galleries all over the world and are part of permanent collections in a variety of world famous museums:

ДЖОН МИЛЛЕР


Golden Age IN GOLDEN CAGE


JOHN MILLER


Джон Миллер (США, 1954) – художник, музыкант, профессор ряда университетов, автор критических статей по искусству. Его работы – в самых престижных коллекциях, среди которых:

John Miller (USA, 1954) – an artist, musician, university professor, the author of critical essays on art. His works are part of prestigious world collections such as:

Museum Ludwig, Cologne Cabinet des Estampes, Geneva Carnegie Mellon Museum, Pittsburg, PA Deutsche Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt Frac Limousin, Limousin, France Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

Pangea Consortium, Zurich Progressive Corporation, Cleveland, OH Queensboro Community College Gallery Collection, New York Rehazentrum Lubben, Berlin Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

Художник близкого круга с такими мэтрами американского концептуального искусства как Mike Kelley, Tony Oursler и Jim Shaw, Джон Миллер активно выставляется в  Америке и  по всему миру начиная с  середины 1980-х годов. Трудно охватить весь спектр творчества Д. Миллера. Помимо живописных и скульптурных работ, художник реализует себя в фотографии и видео. Его активность также распространяется на кураторские проекты и арткритику. Фокусом московской выставки будет «золотая» серия его работ – рельефов, скульптур, инсталляций. Также на выставке будут представлены последние работы художника, над созданием которых он работает с  весны 2013 года. Это настенные живописные рельефы, имитирующие случайно выбранных из толпы прохожих, и трансформирующие камерное выставочное пространство в оживлённую уличную среду. В 2011 году Джону Миллеру была вручена престижная премия The Wolfgang Hahn Prize (Museum Ludwig, Cologne). Прежде ее лауреатами были Cindy Sherman, Christopher Wool, Mike Kelley, Pipilotti Rist, Richard Artschwager, Rosemarie Trockel, Peter Doig.

John Miller is a member of the narrow circle of American conceptual art gurus, including Mike Kelley, Tony Oursler and Jim Shaw. His works have been on display in cities across the USA and in the rest of the world since the mid 1980s. Miller’s works embrace a wide variety of genres. In addition to paintings and sculptures, the artist excels in photography and video, has been monitoring a large number of projects and writes art reviews. The gem of the exhibition is the so-called «gold» series – reliefs, sculptures, installations. On display are also the artist’s recent works on which he has been working since spring 2013. These include wall reliefs which imitate passers-by and transform the chamber exhibition space into a lively street. In 2011 John Miller was awarded the The Wolfgang Hahn Prize (Museum Ludwig, Cologne). The former laureates of this prestigious award include Cindy Sherman, Christopher Wool, Mike Kelley, Pipilotti Rist, Richard Artschwager, Rosemarie Trockel, Peter Doig, etc.
