OUT OF THE CAMERA: BEYOND PHOTOGRAPHY - Department of Art and Art History: University of Hawaii at Manoa

New work by photographer Lucas Blalock on view in the Art Building Commons Gallery starting today for our on-campus community—and hopefully open to the public soon! This is the first solo exhibition of the yearlong exhibition series Out of the Camera: Beyond Photography.

"In this new work made for the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Le Déjeuner / Mollusks on the Grass (2020), Blalock’s investigation of two sunbathing bodies riffs on Édouard Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe (1862) while creating a portrait of leisure for our times."

The exhibition is on view *through the gallery windows only* through October 29:

Aloha Friends and ‘Ohana,

The John Young Museum of Art proudly presents "Shooting Wallpaper" by Paris-based artist Brigitte Zieger (September 5 – December 1, 2017). Don't miss the exhibition opening Tuesday, Sept. 5 from 4-6pm where Zieger will give a gallery walk-through.

EXHIBITION SUMMARY:
Inspired by 18th century French toile de Jouy printed textiles and wallpaper, Brigitte Zieger reimagines the designs through video installations. Zieger creates visual tensions by pairing historic utopian references with violent, thought-provoking visuals from contemporary society. Shooting Wallpaper (2006) presents idyllic pastoral motifs that turn into unexpected animated surfaces. The female shepherd suddenly stands, walks towards the viewer, and begins shooting a gun before turning back around and once again becomes camouflaged within the wallpaper patterns. The exhibition consists of four animated wallpapers including: Shooting Wallpaper (2006), Exploding Wallpaper (2007), Tank Wallpaper (2009), and Bewildered (2012). Each one asks viewers to think about what we present in our home, what our decor is made up of, and what realities they keep out of sight.

The exhibition will include a selection of 18th and 19th century French porcelain, generously donated by Steven and Ginger Spiegel, that is part of the permanent collection of the John Young Museum of Art. Juxtaposing Zieger’s animations with the French porcelain repositions the collection and invites questions into hidden social meanings.

ARTIST INFO:
Based in Paris, German artist Brigitte Zieger develops an oeuvre, which in a subtle manner undermines aesthetic forms and decorative patterns. She employs a whole range of media, such as drawings, cut outs, video, and sculpture. The artist bases her works on world events and the way in which they are perceived and conveyed by the media. Zieger employs surface effects that exploit prettiness as a means of enchantment to lead her spectators onto the most virulent and radical terrain of political meaning. War and the power of violence are pervasive without being visible or binary.

Brigitte Zieger has participated in numerous international exhibitions and artistic events such as Abracadabra at the Tate Modern, London (1999), Shadows Dream the Man with Kara Walker at the L’Aître Saint-Maclou (2010), Digital Hand at the National Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei (2010), Bang! Bang! at the CCA Kunsthalle, Andratx (2011), Tirs Reloaded/Pacific Standard Time at Here Is Elsewhere Gallery in Los Angeles (2012), Metamatic Reloaded at the Tinguely Museum in Basel, and Motopoétique at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon (2014). Recent solo shows include Wallpapered at Millennium Court Art Centre, Belfast/Portadown (2013), Pieces of Possible History at the Gallery Odile Ouizeman, Paris (2014), and Other Scenes at Void Gallery, Derry, Northern Ireland (2017). Her video Shooting Wallpaper was recently included the collections of the Nevada Museum of Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
