Matthew Barney: Prayer Sheet with the Wound and the Nail / Schaulager Basel

This year’s exhibition at Schaulager in Basel is dedicated to the Drawing Restraint series by Matthew Barney. Drawing Restraint is a series of performances, numbering sixteen thus far, in which Matthew Barney leaves traces in an environment of self-induced physical and psychological restraints. Works emerging from these performances, such as sculptures, vitrines, drawings and videos, are juxtaposed in the Schaulager exhibition with works of art from the Northern Renaissance.

The basic idea of Drawing Restraint is that form can only take shape when it struggles against resistance. Drawing Restraint was initially conceived such that its apparatuses would frustrate the ease of drawing. The first performances consisted of environments with ramps, sloping surfaces, elastic belts and obstacles that expressly served to restrict the artist’s skill.

The Foundation that operates Schaulager, the Laurenz Foundation, will acquire, in partnership with the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Matthew Barney’s archive of this performance series. Thanks to the joint acquisition by these two institutions, the Drawing Restraint Archive will be presented to the public as a whole for the first time.

The so-called Drawing Restraint Archive is the point of departure for a significantly broader-based exhibition at Schaulager, with works from the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation and additional loans. Matthew Barney’s works enter into a dialogue with works of Christian iconography by artists such as Martin Schongauer, Albrecht Drer, Urs Graf and others.

Schaulager has appointed Neville Wakefield as guest curator for the exhibition. The New York based author and curator has a profound knowledge of Matthew Barney’s work and will be organising the exhibition project in close collaboration with the artist and the Schaulager team. Schaulager is the sole venue for this exhibition.

The exhibition is running until the 3rd October 2010.

Le Principe Galápagos #6 is a group exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, curated by a collective from Geneva composed of Maxime Bondu, Gaël Grivet, Bénédicte Le Pimpec and Émile Ouroumov. The works that are scattered throughout the building. The title of the show is derived from Charles Darwin’s famous examination of the Galápagos archipelago: “The observation of this natural milieu, considered as autonomous, allowed Darwin to formalize his theory of natural selection, which he then applied to the rest of the natural world. How does this pertain to the question of art?” This video provides you with a walkthrough and statements by the curators Bénédicte Le Pimpec, Emile Ouroumov, and the artist Simon Faithfull.

The exhibition presents works by the following artists: Atlantic, Alain Bedos and Christian Moncel, Maxime Bondu, Simon Boudvin, René Daumal, Arnaud des Pallières, Simon Faithfull, Joseph Grigely, Gaël Grivet, Ceel Mogami de Haas and Vianney Fivel, Laurent Montaron, Uriel Orlow, Jean Painlevé, Ilya Prigogine, Principauté of Sealand, Superstudio, and Christian Waldvogel.
