Melancholia, a Sebald variation

London,King’s College London21 Sep - 10 Dec
An exhibition organised by John-Paul Stonard and Lara Feigel Albrecht Dürer’s 1514 engraving Melencolia I remains one of the foundational images of European art. The winged figure of genius slouches despondently; the hourglass shows time hastening to its end. Five centuries later, this became the mood of that archetypal melancholy European, W G Sebald. There is the rootlessness of exile and displacement in The Emigrants; the disappearance of old Europe in Austerlitz; the ruins of the bombed cities in On…

Exhibition: A Selection of Works of Turkish Calligraphy

London,Yunus Emre Enstitüsü London22 Sep - 13 Oct

These are painted with gold ink and various pigments, thus they acquired superb colors. The illumination on…

Sisters From Another Mister at Depford X Festival

London,Deptford X Festival22 Sep - 1 Oct
Sisters From Another mister is a jointly authored artistic identity of Milda Lembertaitė (’87,Klaipėda, Lithuania) and Amelia Prazak (‘87, Vira Gambarogno, Switzerland). As a collective, they work with a free-wheeling practice employing gender play, witty sculptural forms, musical interludes and video works. Humorous scenarios function as a pretext for more complex personal and public topics and critical positions. Their approach to technology is a bodily and emotional one: the use of video as an extension of the physical self.
