Zilvinas Kempinas: Kakashi / Kloster Schönthal Sculpture Park

This video is a film, actually. A unique copy. A spool of developed Super 8 film. There’s no editing, no correction. There will never be an analog or digital copy. This film has been shown only once on the occasion of the premiere at VernissageTV’s HQ in Basel on October 8, 2013. It’s the first in a series of Super 8 short films shot on a Nizo S 800 Braun Super 8 camera. Why that? Because it’s fun.

Kakashi by Zilvinas Kempinas at Kloster Schönthal Sculpture Park, Switzerland. In collaboration with Museum Tinguely, Basel. June 6, 2013.

There’s also a photo set at Flickr.

Zilvinas Kempinas: Darkroom / K20 Grabbeplatz, Düsseldorf

In this video, we attend the opening of the exhibition Zilvinas Kempinas: Darkroom at K20 Grabbeplatz, Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf (Germany). For the project room “Labor” of the museum K20, the New York-based artist Zilvinas Kempinas created an immersive installation that takes the visitor to a space that reminds of a darkroom or a dark forest bathed in red light.

A major survey exhibition of the work of Zilvinas Kempinas titled Slow Motion is currently on show at Museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland.

More information and videos on Zilvinas Kempinas are available in our archive.

VernissageTV PDF Magazine No. 25: Super! 8!

Out now: VernissageTV PDF-magazine No. 25, May 2013.

One of the main topics of this issue is the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. The main exhibition is titled The Encyclopedic Palace and has a strong focus on outsider art. Jochen Fey writes about one of these artists, Friedrich Schröder-Sonnenstern (in German language). We also look back at Art Basel 2013 (especially the Unlimited sector), and Documenta-artist Geoffrey Farmer at Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst. On the occasion of the opening of the second Calder Gallery at Fondation Beyeler, we did a video walkthrough of the exhibition and an interview with Alexander S. C. Rower (Chairman and President of the Calder Foundation) and Oliver Wick (Curator at large, Fondation Beyeler). The magazine includes a transcript of the interview. There’s also a photo series on Zilvinas Kempinas’ work Kakashi, which is currently on show at Museum Tinguely and at Sculpture Park Kloster Schönthal in Switzerland. Finally, there’s a photo portrait of a design icon, the Nizo S 800 Braun Super 8 film camera. We have also produced a video of the camera that is available as a bonus downloadable video for all readers of this magazine.

Zilvinas Kempinas: Slow Motion at Museum Tinguely, Basel

Zilvinas Kempinas: Slow Motion at Museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland is the largest exhibition of the New York-based Lithuanian artist to date. Zilvinas Kempinas is known for his kinetic works with magnetic tape. In this video, the curator of the exhibition and director of Museum Tinguely, Roland Wetzel, provides us with an introduction to the show.

Zilvinas Kempinas: Slow Motion is spread across four exhibition floors and features both newly designed works and works that have already been on show elsewhere but are constantly re-created in each specific new space. Among the earlier works on display are Moon Sketch (2005), Parallels (2007), Ballroom (2010), and the 2-Fan Drawings. One of the most recent works is Light Pillars (2013), composed of two large, eight meter-tall, freestanding cylinders that are formed by several concentric layers of videotape. This piece and several other works are presented in dialogue with Jean Tinguely’s works. The exhibition is curated by Roland Wetzel, director of Museum Tinguely and has been set up in an intensive collaboration with Zilvinas Kempinas.

VernissageTV PDF-Magazine No. 16: Tapes, Fur, Tubes, and Mylar

Out now: VernissageTV PDF-magazine No. 16, April 2011.

During a trip to an evening of openings in Paris, VernissageTV had a closer look at the retrospective with the subtle works of French artist Pierrette Bloch at Karsten Greve Gallery. In Fribourg / Switzerland, we had the chance to do an extensive interview with Edith Dekyndt, who had a solo show at Fri-Art Centre d’Art Contemporain, titled “Dieu rend visite à Newton”.

Number 16 also takes a look at the London Art Scene, where a lot of local galleries showed their program at London Art Fair, and Hauser & Wirth opened new spaces with a Martin Creed solo exhibition that featured a dangerously revolving neon sculpture.

In Berlin, VernissageTV met with Agathe Snow whose solo exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim was showcasing large-scale collages and mobile sculptures. In this show the New York-based Corsican artist Agathe Snow focuses on monuments, trademarks, and historical sites and investigates how they leave their mark on collective memory and national identity.

For the first time, VernissageTV took at trip to Lithuania, to document Zilvinas Kempinas exhibition at Galerija Vartai in Vilnius. Kempinas conceived a show that presented important older and new works.

One of the main themes of the current issue of the magazine is New York. VernissageTV attended several openings such as Ivan Navarro at Paul Kasmin and Tara Donovan at The Pace Gallery. An extensive photo gallery is complemented by a text by FAD Editor at Large Ben Austin, who shares his personal experiences of Armory Week with the readers.

And finally, issue 16 gives an outlook on VernissageTV’s participation in Art Cologne and the video art program that features the artists G.H. Hovagimyan, Christina McPhee, Maria Joao Salema, Raphaele Shirley, Ultra Art Fair, and Lee Wells.

Artists in this issue: Pierrette Bloch, Alexandre Joly, Bettina Pousttchi, Robert Mapplethorpe, Agathe Snow, Edith Dekyndt, Zilvinas Kempinas, and Tara Donovan.
