Downtown Los Angeles

This week we visited the Night Gallery exhibition TRAINS curated by Sterling Ruby and the bizarre home of The Bunny Museum. We announced Jana Euler‘s exhibition of paintings at Kunsthalle Zurich, Jonathan Binet at Gaudel de Stampa and Clement Rodzielski at Chantal Crousel, and K8 Hardy at Kunstlerhaus, Graz. We took a tour of architecture at the Bradbury Building in Downtown Los Angeles and announced the upcoming 2014 New York Art Book Fair.

Kunsthalle Zürich presents the first comprehensive institutional solo show by Jana Euler (born in Friedberg, Germany in 1982, lives and works in Brussels). The exhibition is entitled «Where the energy comes from» and comprises all new works created for this show. The exhibition and the accompanying catalogue are organised in collaboration with the Bonner Kunstverein, where the presentation will be on show from December 6, 2014 to February 22, 2015.

Jana Euler’s work encompasses a variety of artistic media, aesthetic decisions and discursive practices. Her paintings, sculptures and texts explore the possibilities of digital and analogue images and respond to our contemporary conditions of experience with optical, cognitive and sensual models and vehicles of reflection. 

The real material and hyperreal states of objects and subjects carry equal weight in Euler’s works. Through their dynamic interplay in her works, figurative, abstract and surreal forms of representation shift our perception and the definition of reality and image. The figures in the artist’s paintings are simultaneously physis and bearers of wide-ranging social and cultural-historical relationships.

This week on the blog we saw one of the largest flowers in the world bloom at the Huntington Library & Gardens in Pasadena – Titan Arum a.k.a “The Corpse Flower.” We visited Le Louvre in Paris and took a look at the new installation in the Department of Decorative Art from Louis XIV to Louis XVI where we saw a beautiful gold coffee grinder. The British prog rock band Yes played at the Greek Theater in L.A. We marveled at the architecture of The Church of Notre-Dame du Raincy. We attended a screening of the must-see documentary for every Angelino – Los Angeles Plays Itself. We announced Michaela Eichwald’s exhibition of paintings and sculpture at Palais de Tokyo in ParisJana Euler at Kunsthalle Zürich, and Matias Faldbakken at Standard (Oslo).
