TRACES OF TIME: Weaves, woven and other joints

curated by Dores Sacquegna

from 20 May to 2 June 2023

THE SHOW – Temporality can be configured as a fundamental dimension of existence. Through the dimension of temporality, man on the one hand recognizes himself and builds himself in his being and in his becoming, on the other hand he places himself in relationship with the world of other subjects and with the physical world. Each of us, appearing on the horizon of being, fits into a time that already exists: a historical time and a cosmic time. These two dimensions interact closely and continuously, and represent, for each other, a condition of possibility of experience and knowledge. The notions of time and space, in addition to being the dimensions within which the experiences of the subject are placed and contextualized, can be considered the primary cultural constructions around which the different sectors of knowledge have gradually been organized: in time and space the subject structures his ability to orient himself, activates the process of building his personal identity, through a network of relationships between subjective and social, between society and nature, between present and past.

The oldest model is the circular one, suggested by the alternation of day and night, of the seasons, of the phases of the moon; from the return of the constellations, etc. The circle is finite and yet neither a starting nor an ending point can be fixed on it; it can be traveled indefinitely without ever leaving it. On the other hand, events such as birth and death, aging, deterioration, at the level of experience make us perceive the directionality or irreversibility of time. These experiences lead to privilege the linear representation of time over the circular one. However, this conception generates the need for an anchor. This is possible by connecting time to a source that is outside of it, a divine power that has the characteristics of eternity (which is equivalent to the absence of time). Man, without breaking the linear advancement of time, can spiritually return to his origins, when he discovers in the world and in himself the traces of the divine, that is, of the primitive source of being. Traces of time is an exhibition that celebrates abstraction, through symbols that refer to memory, traces or elements of architecture, abstract landscapes, materials corroded by time, free and fantastic inventions that sometimes border on design and more. Free interpretation.

The inclusion of multiple collaborators across different academic and artistic fields is essential in understanding  A Bodily State of Noise conceptual basis of noise as a socio-political agent that shapes systems of representation and paradigm of power preservation and information consumption rather than simply an aesthetic /sensorial form. Hence, a need for a collaborative discourse analyzing the structural form in which noise affects every bit of our lives was the premise for the creation of the project. How can noise, instrumentalized in shaping restrictive and violent regimes of control and power imbalance, create alternative futures?

No prize but fees would depend based on the tickets it sells ( remember part of this is fundraising to fund more projects) When we get more government funds/grants, artists' fees will increase.

Green Hill Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for our IN//BETWEEN #8 art residency and exhibition program. In//Between is not just an exhibition - it is a collaborative project that brings together artists from different cultures and parts of the world.

In//Between is about creating a space that does not belong to any artist, culture, language, art form, or discipline. For four weeks, the artists selected will get the chance to examine the ways they have previously seen and done things and look to what lies ahead: an open canvas, a blank role of film, a block of clay, an idea or vision that has not been thought of before. 

Throughout this residency, the artists will collaborate to build a unique exhibition that showcases the nexus between cross-cultural dialogue, experience, and growth. Therefore, they will create a space where diversity will be leading the way.

Accepted artists must commit to attend all planning, preparation, gathering, and discussion evenings. The work for this exhibition must be created between the initial group meeting and the opening of the exhibition. Previously created works will not be accepted. In our next Residency, Green Hill Gallery will be available as a studio space for all In//Between artists from 24 August to 23 September 2022. The residency will be followed by an exhibition at the Green Hill Gallery, from 23 Spetember to 20 October 2022. The Vernissage will occur on 23 September 2022. 

 

Who should apply?
This program is suited for any artists who are interested in working in an environment that is characterized by exchange, open-mindedness, diversity and community.

The program supports emerging and established artists working with any medium. Applicants must exhibit foundational skills in creating and exhibiting art through their portfolio submissions.

Open Call Green Hill Gallery, EXHIBITION MAY 2022

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Green Hill Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for the new exhibition on the topic of the Notion of Normalcy, which will take place between 20.05.2022 to 19.08.2022.

The exhibition seeks to explore what normalcy means to us nowadays, as we experience unprecedented times to a whole new degree. We seek to investigate the positive and negative aspects of what people deem to be “normal” and how our fabrication of this concept can help and hurt us. As we reach a crossroads in history, we must now consider in which direction we would like to push ourselves as a society.

We invite emerging and established artists working in any medium from Berlin and all over the world to participate in this call, as long as the topic is explored through the artwork. Please be aware that, since the Green Hill Gallery is run by the non-profit organization Kulturschöpfer e.V., accepted artists living outside Berlin will have to take care of the transportation of their artworks.

 

OPEN CALL CONCEPT NOTE

Topic: The Notion of Normalcy

No matter who you are or where you are from, it is likely that the events of the last two years have drastically challenged your perception of what is normal. Our grasp on what is “normal” is becoming evermore tenuous. Just as we seem to be heading towards a renewed sense of familiarity, under the context of Covid, something else seems to be thrown at us, such as the war in Ukraine. What even is normal anymore, in this strangely uncertain, absurdly inconceivable world?

The notion of normalcy has a myriad of varied connotations associated with it. In some contexts, normalcy is how one conducts their day through routines and systems. However, what is normal for me is likely not normal for you. The normal we experience in the city of Berlin – a hotspot and breeding ground for alternative cultures and communities – certainly shows its contrasts against a city such as Paris or London. That being said, when the world fixates on the notion of “returning to normal” in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, what does that mean? Is normal something that even exists universally? Perhaps it is just something we have fabricated for the sake of providing comfort and a sense of control over our existence.

More importantly, we must ask ourselves if this nostalgia for “normal” is even a good thing. Do we even want to go back to the way things were? These last two years have exposed the open wounds of our societies. Black Lives Matter and global climate strikes forced the world to reckon with our role on this planet. However, equally pressing issues such as the famine in Yemen and the economic crisis in Lebanon – as well as many others – have been overlooked by many and under-considered in regards to their impact on the world. These issues have forced us to consider what kind of world we want to be living in.

Furthermore, achieving “normal” can be dangerous. When catastrophic events are eventually regarded as normal – think, the war in Afghanistan, extreme poverty in sub-Saharan Africa – people become desensitized and possibly stop caring. So how can we hearken upon the positive aspects of normalcy while also dispelling the negative ones that hold us back from our greatest potential?

 

Questions we want to explore through this exhibition:

  • What can be achieved if we let go of the construct of “normal”?
  • To what extent is normalcy something we should be trying to achieve or how do we need to let go of our aspirations for going “back to normal,” given what we have seen in the last two years?
  • During these turbulent and transformative times, our vulnerabilities in society have been exposed. How can we take advantage of this changed perspective to redefine what is normal and change the trajectory of our future?
  • Does the construct of “normalcy” inform us and help us understand where we stand in society in a healthy way? Or does it hold us back from greater potential?

ALL GAME NO PLAY: 9th STIFF EXHIBITION PROGRAM

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

We are inviting visual, sound, and performing artists as well as individuals and collectives in other creative disciplines (computer scientists, mechanics, game developers, writers…) that deal with the topic of PLAY to submit their work for the exhibition program of 9th STIFF festival. We are inviting writers and poets who are open to letting their texts come to life activated by animation in space to submit their poems or short texts. 

We welcome various perspectives, from social or intimate to conceptual approaches. Submissions are open to visual media, performances, participative works and instructions, digital works (GIF, mem, NFT, computer graphics, 3D objects, video games, websites, applications, video), installations, interactive objects, machines, custom toys, board games, classic games, as well as sound works and textual works that can be interpreted in the exhibition or public space while dealing with the subject of play in the broadest sense. 

For the last eight years, the STIFF Festival has produced an extensive supporting program that elaborates and complements the thematic focus of its film program. With the emphasis on contemporary art practices, STIFF’s exhibition program gathers artists from all over the globe, dealing with relevant social, political, and intimate aspects of everyday life. 

This year the festival is giving attention to the topic of Play. The exhibition aims to bring together international authors whose works question the meaning of play in contemporary life, use games as a way of communication, or invite the audience to interact with the works. 

How do we play while defying the games imposed on us? Who makes the rules? Does the world we live in evoke our playfulness or leave us with a sense of being trapped by the standards it delivers?

In a world where there is a quick way to do almost anything, what are the activities we look for pleasure and where do we take things slow? Are we leaving ourselves the room for mistakes?  

How do we build interpersonal relations through play? Games we play as adults perform various functions and address different needs. Do the games we play among our communities establish a space for collaboration or competition?

Whether it focuses on strategic thinking and problem solving or exploration and imagination, playing provides a temporary distance from reality. Which are the places we go to while playing, how long do we stay there, and do we find it hard to come back?

As a supporting festival program, the multimedia exhibition will aim to create a special sensory experience that will explore and enrich the subject of the play. 

We invite you to explore the overlapping of art, play and social interaction. We are looking for artworks that activate the visitors and confirm experiencing art as a physical act. The exhibition tends to establish a framework for play to examine our everyday lives.

Prizes Details: 

No compensation; however, you retain ownership and will be credited for accepted work.
