Events NYC | Paolo Galluzzi "The Shadow of Light: Leonardo's Mind by Candlelight"

The Shadow of Light: Leonardo's Mind by Candlelight
A lecture by Paolo Galluzzi

Spirals of smoke, and energy rising from air hitting a flame was the seminal image shown by Paolo Galluzzi last evening in his presentation "The Shadow of Light: Leonardo's Mind by Candlelight". From the Codex Atlanticus of ca. 1508-10, this image crystallized Galluzzi's theme of unity--the unity in which Leonardo perceived the earth, the human body, and physical phenomena. To Leonardo, this unity linked all the phenomena from the microcosm to the macrocosm, in a vision of reality—a concept preceding by several centuries our contemporary Gestalt or System Thinking.

“Leonardo,” says Prof. Galluzzi, “records the extraordinary chain of thoughts triggered by the candle burning on his table”, as recorded in a double folio in the Codex Atlanticus of c. 1508-10 – a fairly long and organic text, at least by Leonardo’s standards, entitled On the motion of flame. The sequence of ingenious observations and penetrating reflections echoes experiments and analyses recorded in other manuscripts of the same years. Leonardo’s daring analogies offer a fascinating journey through his unified vision of man and the physical world, a vision reaching from natural philosophy to meteorology, from the ‘science of painting’ to cosmology, from anatomy to geology. The candle’s flame is transformed by Leonardo’s sharp eye into a powerful microscope that reveals the universal principles which govern all natural phenomena."

Most daring, perhaps, was Leonardo's likening the streaming water in the earth to the blood in the body. Or most fascinating was Leonardo's "making art" as process used to understand the working of things, which would be expressed in modern terms as "form follows function".

The metaphor of the candle flame revealing the universal principles Leonardo perceived as governing all natural phenomena was made all the more convincing by the speaker's evidence gleaned from Leonardo's manuscripts and paintings. Interestingly, after ca. 1510, Leonardo veered away from this train of thought.

Would Leonardo be known as an artist were he working today? Wide-ranging discussion followed the talk, with one scholar positing a more scientific role for Leonardo in our time--molecular biologist, cosmologist, or something unknown to us that he would have pioneered.

Exhibitions NYC | Geometric Dreams: Infinite Variety at the Park Avenue Armory

Art and science at its best: the beauty of geometry is celebrated in Infinite Variety, the spectacular exhibition of quilts presented by the American Folk Art Museum. The breathtaking exhibition, unfortunately closing today, presented 650 red and white American quilts, all on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose, in the Park Avenue Armory’s historic 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall.
The magic of geometric patterns from polygons, tiling, tessellations, mandalas, in the most elaborated phantasmagorical presentation, is beautifully installed as floating in the quite dramatic space of the Armory.
The entry to this event was even free of charge and photography was allowed.

With many thanks to the American Folk Art Museum.

Vernissages NYC | Joseph Kosuth "Joseph Kosuth 'Texts (Waiting for-) for Nothing' Samuel Beckett, in play"

  • words and meaning
  • the presence of meaning and the meaning of absence
  • the meaning of art and the aesthetics of meaning,
  • images of words from words on images
  • language as art and the art of language
  • .....
Just a few of the many thoughts provoked by visiting Joseph Kosuth 'Texts (Waiting for-) for Nothing' Samuel Beckett, in play, which opened yesterday at Sean Kelly. A visually powerful, important and, of course, meaningful (monochromatic) exhibition by one of the most (and first) famous conceptual artists.

And a of course a few images...

The exhibition includes, besides the new project based on Samuel Beckett, also two other historic installation works: the artist’s first gallery exhibition Nothing, premiered in Los Angeles in 1968, and neon installation work based on James Joyce’s Ulysses, from 1998.

March 30 through April 30, 2011

Events NYC | Eiko & Koma: Moving to Stillness

Dance is often thought as movement; usually as a series of movements performed by dancers on a stage in front of an audience. In modern, and even more so, in contemporary dance, the traditional setting of a dance performance are often challenged. This is definitely true for "Naked: A Living Installation". The title itself signs a departure from the traditional dance performance. Stillness and the relationship with time is one the main experiences evoked by this work by the Japanese-born artists Eiko & Koma. I believe that the definition "artists" ---as comprehensive of many forms of expression and media--- is more appropriate than dancers. Although the body is the main, but not only, expression medium in Eiko & Koma work.
So the performance setting is not typical of "dance": canvas enclosures with feathers, hair, straw. Holes are punched in the canvas allowing the viewer to peek into the performance space, where Eiko & Koma lie naked, with their body painted white. There is an almost complete absence of movement and the viewer is induced by the stillness almost in a meditative state.

"Naked" was created for and commissioned by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, where it premiered in 2010.
It will be on view at the Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) through Saturday, April 09, 2011

Events NYC | Neuroscience: Eric Kandel on Memory at CUNY

Erkenne Dich selbst (know yourself)

This evening my walkabouts took me across the street from the Empire State Building: the Graduate Center of CUNY presented Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel, as launching event of the new Interdisciplinary Committee for Science Studies. Eric R. Kandel, M.D., professor at Columbia University and director of the Kavli Institute for Brain Science, received the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine in 2000.

In his presentation dr. Kandel focused on memory and introduced the history of research on memory as a system problem and as molecular problem. He started with phrenology (from the Greek φρήν "mind" and λόγος "knowledge"): the popular XIX century discipline (now considered pseudoscience) was developed by the German physician Franz Joseph Gall and assigned cognitive functions and emotions to areas of the brain. The history of how cognitive functions became assigned to specific brain region was quite fascinating and quite amusing to learn how intelligence and emotional responses were determined as function of measurement of the skull.

Dr. Kandel's presentation progressed into contemporary neuroscience and introduced memory related topics such as the relationship between short term, long term, implicit and explicit memory, spatial learning in the hippocampus, influence of aging and how memory is effected by emotions. He also mentioned his upcoming book on art and neuroscience, with references to the German expressionism as well as Gestalt and visual illusions. The content was delivered with great clarity to be fully understood and appreciated even by an audience without specific more technical knowledge in the field of neuroscience.

In the QA session the audience introduced major themes such as neuroscience and ethics: can evil have a biological explanation?

Unfortunately the QA session ended before I was able to ask a question on mnemonic systems from the ancient Greece, Rome and the Renaissance ---as narrated in The Art of Memory by Frances A. Yates. As an artist interested in neuroscience and concerned with the transformation of space, the association between space and memory is quite relevant to my work.

To be continued...

PS The Empire State Building has nothing to do with dr. Kandel's presentation, I only took the photo on my way to CUNY, as I am always fascinated by the interaction of light with landmark building ---and I am not the only one, remember Andy Warhol? As the topic of the lecture was memory and this blog (as many others) is a collection of visual memories...why not including it?

camminando | My First 2011 Spring view of the Sun Setting at Olana

The view of the Sun setting behind the Catskill mountains is always magical...even in a very cold spring evening. My annual pilgrimage at Olana, gave some energy to continue work at Sun Farm, dealing with the results of a very harsh winter in the hope of the spring rebirth ---also metaphorical.

Vernissages | "Vestige-Written in Bone" in Hudson, March 26

The Ornamentum gallery, specialized in unusual wearable art/jewelry, presented Jennifer Trask work in "Vestige-Written in Bone". As expressed by the title the majority of the artwork was realized in bones, of many different types of animals: from antlers to bones of birds, pythons and rattle snakes (among several others) diligently composed and recomposed by the artist, in preservation of the many cycles of life and death in the natural world

thoughts | dysfunctionality, public art agency and culture production

"Dysfunctional is the talent du jour" was the comment of a friend of mine to my list of professional frustrations.

I cannot complain in these times of cosmic disorder, considering what is going on the planet: earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, tornadoes, floods...But still there is so much which could be accomplished just with some logical reasoning and respect/consideration of others, which could truly improved the quality of life.

Being involved in cultural production for several years (often working on it over 10 hour a day, without being able to make a living) I have been involved in too many episodes of dysfunctionality, mainly coming from academia or so called "public art" agencies.

I am mentioning only the most recent episode, regarding for the Big Screen, a supposedly public display of video works. The web site encourages to submit work related to the month specific themes; for April the topics list included cheese, jazz, and diversity, not including poetry ---in fact, April is National Poetry Month. We queried about our interest in submitting our visually poetry project and we encouraged to do so. We submitted stills, and links to the low resolution video. We are asked to mail or drop off the high resolution video. With the understanding that the video was selected for broadcasting —the submitted material was more than sufficient to make a selection— I dropped off the full resolution video work at the Big Screen office. A week later after asking for broadcast schedule we receive a quick reply "Unfortunately we will not be showing your work at this time" with no explanation of the reasons. The other reply after my inquiry of the reasons for the work rejection was "we need to see 100% of a video before it is selected, this only makes sense as we are a public video screen and have to make sure that the videos being shown are appropriate."

Besides being upset for waste of time caused by this submission I am also concerned (and this is not my first experience in regard) of how public space for art Public Art is administered and managed. How are the curators/administrator selected? Making decision about public space comes with responsibility: a justification for rejecting work which has been highly priced is due.

However luckily we live in a time where the largest public art space of the world is available:
View and judge yourself how Venice of the Mind was appropriate for public viewing!

camminando | NYC: an almost spring evening with full moon and urban life

Not to much to say with words: hopefully the images narrate the story of a special almost spring evening which felt like a "late summer". My axis mundi finally felt "in place".

The evening started with a stroll in Central Park to perform my ritualistic recording of the sunset mirrored in the water. While the sun setting in the West, almost magically the a full moon rose in the East. The lake had the privilege to host in its water the sun setting and the moon rising at the same time! And the moon at its perigee was so big and felt so close!

Looking West

Looking East

I entered Fifth Avenue, the antidote to e-shopping with some of the most glamorous non-virtual shopping scenes. I cannot afford it (no regrets here, honestly) but it is fun to walk by...

Bergdorf Goodman window tears reminded me of a Lucio Fontana's canvas

Louis Vuitton across the street

My evening continues with the opening of "Inhabiting Abstration" at the Francis M. Naumann gallery. Finding spirals and classic geometric abstraction in the paintings of Jean Crotti (1878-1958) was reassuring. But I was really mesmerized by the small room of the gallery with Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and Dada memorabilia.

Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and Dada Memorabilia

Jean Crotti @ Francis Naumann

On my way home another typical encounter of a Manhattan night scene, the limo. On the back a very interesting window display at a store I can afford, Strawberry.

Finally closing the evening in circle the full moon, rising higher, greeted me in front of my building.

This evening was another reminder that is not about the destination, but about the path.
