Taking the stories and histories of the Indian Ocean as its departure point, the group exhibition Indigo Waves and Other Stories: Re-Navigating the Afrasian Sea and Notions of Diaspora brings together 13 contemporary artists, historians, filmmakers, musicians, writers and thinkers to investigate, unpack and shed light on some of the smaller and bigger historical, cultural and linguistic links between the continents of Africa and Asia. The exhibition approaches the Indian Ocean as a communal horizon from which to read Afrasian (that is, belonging to both Africa and Asia) histories of forced and unforced movement through currents of mercantile and colonial empire.

Ziwa Kuu, the Swahili Sea, the Afrasian Sea, the Indian Ocean, Ratnakara, Eastern Ocean, Indic Ocean or Bahari Hindi are just a few of the names used to characterise a body of water that has been dubbed the oldest continuum in human history. This water mass covers some 20% of the world’s total oceanic area and spreads between the East African coast, bordering Asia in the north, engulfing Australia in the east and stretching south to the Southern Ocean. There is much in a name, they say, but no single name seems to have the potential of encompassing, containing, signifying or expressing all that this body of water stands for, tells, sings or invokes. It is too complex, too deep, too vast and pregnant with a plenitude of histories, to carry just one name. What is for certain is that rather than divide, it connects geographies, cultures, peoples, languages, foods, sounds, winds, waters, economies, philosophies and more. The ocean is a fluid joint, a junction of and for affinities and realignments prior to nation-state allegiances.

Indigo Waves and Other Stories is guest curated by renowned art historians and curators Natasha Ginwala and Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, with Michelangelo Corsaro.

ʀᴀᴇ ᴋʟᴇɪɴ: ʟᴏᴡ ᴠᴏɪᴄᴇ ᴏᴜᴛ ʟᴏᴜᴅ is currently on view at Nicodim Los Angeles through August 13.

The light switch is Emperor over a windowless room. You grasp at the wall for it, praying not to crack a shin or smash your head. In the absence of power there is blackness. Shapes and figures may or may not exist under its cloak, scale and depth are a mystery. You find the switch, and with it, clarity. You’re in a large, extravagantly set dining room. No one has been here for years, decades, but you’ve visited before behind closed eyelids. Now flip off: blackness again. Now flip on: the dining room. Now off-on-off- on-off-on-off-on-off-on and so forth, until the forms and silhouettes merge with the unknown, and new, familiar characters assert themselves in the in-between: a dog, a horse, a bird, a shell.

LOW VOICE OUT LOUD, Rae Klein’s first solo exhibition with Nicodim, is a series of personal and biographical portraits of traumas and delights blended together when the power flips on-off-on-off, etc. Each canvas is a window from a perspective that switches between omnipotence and weightlessness at a moment’s notice. In “Burn to the Ground,” a silhouette foregrounds a candelabra, inversing the relationship between shadow and cave wall and exposing its very source of light. “Glass Pony” depicts a pony-shaped portal between the viewer’s perch and a constellation of nearby stars. “In the Highest House in the Whole City” is an aura-Polaroid of the surreal and the sublime. These are the quiet moments between darkness and light, the low voice sung out loud.

𝐏𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐩 𝐊𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐫: 𝐔𝐬 is currently on view at Nicodim Upstairs, Los Angeles through August 8.

A Philipp Kremer canvas, taken as a whole, at once registers as abstraction. Groupings of bold primary and secondary colors are thickly dipped and deftly stroked from large brushes. The pigments rub up against, but never bleed into one another. Each separate pantone is a whole unto itself, a unique form, a semi-sentient body within a communal surface. The compositions are multihued communities of wholes comprised of smaller wholes fitting themselves into many smaller holes.

Kremer himself was raised in a Christian commune. When every aspect of waking life is a shared endeavor, painting can be seen as antisocial, rebellious. And once one’s eyes adjust, his paintings depict groups of people joyously fu***ng.

Us, Kremer’s fourth solo exhibition with Nicodim, implicitly binds the viewer to the communities on his canvases. In “Gathering (XXIII),” 2021, our gaze is fixed from around the corner. We are voyeurs, first upon a partitioning of eight individual colors, then a partially disrobed foursome, then another individual, watching us watching them. The setting of “Gathering (###III),” 2021, is foregrounded by a disembodied hand—it could be our hand—pulling back the curtain on four figures rendered in a single shade as they piece themselves together in carnal delight, each appendage and embrace delineated by the weight of Kremer’s brushstrokes. He strokes us all onto the same plane, the same existence. It’s a bit uncomfortable, and not without a sense of mischief, but his approach is sincere and considered. In this body of work, every body is a part of the action, communally. All of us.

SHANGHAI | Five Walkscapes — Devin B. Johnson’s first international institutional solo exhibition opens tomorrow Saturday July 16 at Pond Society.

On view through August 14, 2022

Johnson’s abstractions, or “walkscapes,” start with a well-defined rendering of a figurative situation sourced from found photographs, record covers, and other objects that once held intense personal meaning for someone, somewhere, only to be lost or discarded. From here, he adds layers of various textural elements and paint, sometimes changing the orientation of the piece. He sees his process as an allegory for the entropy and regeneration of memory, experience, and community identity.

Inspired by Torkwase Dyson, Cullen Washington Jr, and the Dada movement’s walkabouts, he seeks to find his way underneath Black compositional thought, underneath the skin, to delve beyond representational articulations of memory and experience and render them haptically. He no longer wants to paint bodies, he wants to paint and sculpt souls interacting in liminal spaces, to capture and amplify their spirit and energy. Those are his lips and legs embedded within his ceramic vessels, a moment captured for eternity. He no longer sees his body as skin and bone, but as a transitional repository to temporarily house experience with a certainty of change. The texture on his abstract canvases and ceramics is sculptural even when two-dimensional, and he incorporates mediums from happy times, like ash from blunts and bottles from parties.

In its essence, this exhibition is an overture to the way time takes hold of the landscapes around us. Johsnon’s paintings and ceramics are a response to a visual language he sees in the natural world.

NEW YORK!
𝗟𝗮𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗠𝗮𝗱𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗮𝗹: 𝙒𝙤𝙧𝙠 / 𝙇𝙞𝙛𝙚 is currently on view!

Over the course of creating Work / Life, Larry Madrigal’s third solo exhibition with Nicodim, the artist and his wife conceived their second child. He watched his wife’s body change while his pretty-much stayed the same. She is a mother, he is still Larry. This body of work is the artist’s negotiation of his predetermined biological roles and his place in society, for which there is no longer a blueprint or safety net. He thrives in arguments between stubborn flesh, which refuses to behave in a manner other than it was designed, and the chaos of contemporary life: the way there’s no great place for him to view his wife’s sonogram in the doctor’s office; the way to find time for s*x with his pregnant wife with a young daughter in the house; the way the way his belly folds in a post-coital viewing of The Bachelorette. Work / Life is the artist’s celebration of the struggle to carve out a stable community for his and his family’s bodies in a world that doesn’t always care or listen.

LOS ANGELES — Mosie Romney’s ‘Green Giant at the Table or symbiopsychotaxiplasm ’, 2022 is featured in their solo exhibition it’s not my music, on view at Nicodim Los Angeles till June 18!

✨🪩🎵
it’s not My Music is its own echo. In here, witnessing becomes a form of authorship. Drawing from their vintage photo archive, Mosie Romney looks, corrodes, grows, and imprints found memories into new worlds. Their canvases are woven with magic—forms, figures, and ideas disappear and reappear within them. Subjectivity and the act of seeing and hearing become a metabolizing process that destabilizes the known, fixed states of mine/yours/ours/theirs. This is a Black collective production. This is call and response, this is the sample, the beat, the loop, the meme. It’s not my music, it’s ours!
The exhibition, Romney’s second solo with Nicodim, emerges underneath the nighttime magic of Hecate. Impossible spaces assert their dominion within and beyond the gallery walls— time and identity are compressed, distorted, opaqued, vaulted, organic, exhibitional—they produce their own fantasy acoustics. Sound and possibility are in abundance here. Bodies old and used morph into new, taking spirit-form. They explode through logic and time, caught mid-transit journeying through and opening portals. The music cracks, breaks, deconstructs, destroys in tradition and reverbs towards freedom.

What is the sound of a color? A lo-o-o-o-ok? How do you say “???” in real life?

LOS ANGELES — Shoora Majedian's solo show DAMAVAND دماوند is currently on view at Nicodim Upstairs, Los Angeles till June 18th.⁣

Mount Damavand, an active stratovolcano beneath Tehran, is the most elevated peak in Western Asia. Its cultural significance stems from Persian mythology and the text The Shahnameh, an epic poem written by Ferdowsi between 977 and 1010 CE. Mount Damavand has thus come to represent Iranian resistance against despotism and foregin rule in Persian poetry and literature. Geologically it is a paradox—the flowing lava inside the volcano is contrasted with thick layers of ice and occasional mist that blanket it.

Association With Fire (2019) brings to light the artist’s relationship with her grandfather, a baker, who she describes as a religious man, ever-fearful of the afterlife. Majedian created two versions of this scene, a work on paper and a large work on canvas, each loosely depicting his flatbread bakery in Tehran. Heat envelops the composition of both works, the elder man’s form absorbing into the intense smoke emanating from a burning brick oven. Majedian captures the labor of the bakery in conversation with visual articulations of hell through fire and smoke, sin and eternity.

It is the small, uncomfortable moments that excite Majedian. Where some find security in the routine aspects of life, she sees uneasiness and complication. Born during the second year of the Iran-Iraq war, the artist characterizes her upbringing as one where multiple sociological, historical, and political crises converged. Her paintings unpack the complexity of what she calls her “social memories” of that time, living in an immediately post-revolution Iran. While each painting tells a distinct story, Majedian balances relatability, shock, and discomfort, to pose questions about generational memory combined with painterly experimentation.

ISTANBUL — Georgina Gratrix is featured in an upcoming group exhibition at Dirimart:

Would you still love me if I painted parrots all day?

June 8, 2022–July 3, 2022

Artists: Georgina Gratrix, Özlem Günyol & Mustafa Kunt, Zsófia Keresztes, Güçlü Öztekin, Ugo Rondinone, Fahrelnissa Zeid

Curators: Anissa Touati, Marc-Olivier Wahler

Would you still love me if I painted parrots all day? Would you still love this world if fishes were floating in your room, if your whole universe turned into a bestiary, where the human being counted as much as a fragile flower, a colored stone, a crazy horse, a vaporous landscape? Where nothing and everything shared the same place on a field that unfolds up to the horizon? No, maybe not. Unless you look at this world through the eyes of some artists: they observe their surroundings with an attention stripped of any type of hierarchy between things. They manage to extract distinct languages from these flat horizons, they transform everything into singular objects, strange, unique, rebellious and elusive. These worlds are made in artists’ studios, where all the possibilities of representing our world are imaginable. You can paint anything, absolutely anything. But then, why paint parrots again and again? Day after day? Could it be that the artist knows his gaze is not unidirectional, it turns, goes away, comes back and above all, ventures both outside and inside his body. Painting all the flowers, molding all the fishes, twisting any material to bring it inside our world, these are the challenges that the artists set themselves in their studios in order to help us navigate in our everyday world.
