Andreas Gefeller
The Japan Series: October 16th until November 23rd, at Thomas Rehbein Galerie, Cologne
"The series' focus lies on the „Poles“. Gefeller photographs electricity posts in at least two single upward views from a perpendicular position. In the subsequent digital assemblage the pole disappears and innummerable cables and current transformers are converted into an autonomous and abstract composition that spreads in front of a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation opens up a new perspective on familiar situations. Thus, the „Poles“ transcend their original context in order to awaken associations of underground railway plans, autoroute intersections or night photographs of a city's pulsating traffic arteries."

"Super-Kamiokande is the large water Cherenkov detector. The construction was started in 1991 and the observation began on April 1, 1996. The Super-Kamiokande is operated by an international collaboration of about 110 people and 30 institutes from Japan, the United States, Korea, China, Poland and Spain.
One of the purposes of the Super-Kamiokande experiment is to reveal the neutrino properties through the observation of solar neutrinos, atmospheric neutrinos, atmospheric neutrinos and man-made neutrinos. In 1998, from the observation of atmospheric neutrinos we discovered the neutrino oscillations which neutrinos are changing their types in flight. In 2001, solar neutrino oscillations were discovered by the observation of solar neutrinos. The investigation of the neutrino properties will enable us to understand how matter was created in the early universe. By observation of solar neutrinos, we can know the activities inside of the sun. By detection of neutrinos from supernova burst, we can investigate the details of the explosion mechanism of the star." Super-Kamiokande

Chen Chieh-Jen 1996-2010 
until November 14th, 2010, at Taipei Fine Arts Museum
e-flux reports: "Chen created a series of photographic and video projects that re-imagine, re-write and re-connect his experience of living in a marginalized region and the intrinsic spirit of Taiwanese society, as well as propose possible ways of subverting dominant neoliberal logic...
In 1980s, the Cold War/Martial Law period in Taiwan, Chen challenged the limits of expression under the Martial Law system and the conservative art establishment with guerrilla-style performance art and underground exhibitions."

Crackle
"When French luxury jeweler Mauboussin approached the Rockwell Group to design its new store, the design firm selected Nathan Allan Glass Studios Inc. to create a unique architectural decor element. The challenge was to make a statement without overwhelming the high-end merchandise it would showcase. Working in conjunction with Rockwell’s designers, Nathan Allan developed an icy, glittering new glass product that echoes the chiseled surfaces of brilliant diamonds. Entitled Crackle, this glass was used to unify three floors while complementing Mauboussin’s exquisite pieces."

Magnetic Norths
From afar, the shifting phenomenon of magnetic north provides guidance not unlike Polaris, but as one draws close to the shadowy realm of the Arctic, navigation and communication begin to go awry, forcing the nomad to experiment within a no-man’s land. Military and religious colonization, hazardous testing, and a disregard for a fragile ecosystem mark the past of the Arctic, but so do inventive and sensitive histories. Within the White Cube of the gallery — here posited as a substitute for the minimalist landscape of the Arctic Sublime — the exhibition takes as its starting point Mercator’s imaginative speculation of dual magnetic north poles from 1595, and ends with recent geomatic renderings by an indigenous government. Between these visual landmarks, a constellation of documents, photographs, sculptures, radio broadcasts, film screenings and installations weave together the overlapping territories of utilitarian artifacts and conceptual artwork. The survey of work starts with techno/military enterprises such as those of Thomas Edison, R. Buckminster Fuller, Canada’s NFB, and the US Air Force; revisits conceptual art from the 1960s and '70s by Glenn Gould, N.E. Thing Co., Lawrence Weiner, Michael Snow, Joyce Wieland and others; and includes a selection of contemporary artists whose work combines both axes. Far from being an empty terra incognita, the Arctic, and like it, Magnetic Norths, functions both as a historical repository and as a fantasy projection space that generates electro-magnetic distortions, pay dirt, pissing contests, sci-fi warfare, psychedelic skies, conspiracy theories, critical confections, shamanistic loss and shattered cartographies.
Until April 17th, 2010, at Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Montreal
