    • ONE • ONE PLANET ONE FUTURE
      An Exhibition of Photographs by Anne de Carbuccia

      
ionone world | photography | Time Shrine Foundation | ONE • ONE PLANET ONE FUTURE

      “LIVE LIFE” IMAGERY CONFRONTS OUR CURRENT CRISIS
      Hosted by Time Shrine Foundation Westbeth Center for the Arts 155 Bank Street, New York, NY 10014


      Anne de Carbuccia’s photographs make ingenious use of vanitas art, a tradition that dates back to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, which features the skull and the hourglass as symbols of vanity andtime. Using these objects, organic elements, and found objects she creates an installation—a shrine—in symbolically significant environmentsto draw attention to that particular location or to honor its beauty.This bold reimagining of classical still life composition might be called “live life” imagery. These images and a short film were made on expeditions to which de Carbuccia traveled with a very small crewand an instinctive sense of purpose. Her photographs are both an homage to their subjects—water, forests, endangered species—and an exposé on the ruinous effects of pollution and war. They record what is fast disappearing for future generations while also serving as a plea to reimagine a new world.

      The Installation
      The indoor exhibition will take place in what was once the WestbethSculpture Room. During Hurricane Sandy, the space was completely flooded. The installation will reproduce the effect of the flood as a reminder of that event and a call to action, as climate change caused by human activities continues to disrupt weather patterns. The entrance to the exhibition is on the top floor, above the main gallery and photo coves, providing visitors with a bird’s eye view of the space. Reflections on the pools, the sound of water dropping, and the gradual descent into the main gallery sets the mood for the exhibition experience. Visitors discover the photographic works as they navigate the main gallery and four separate photos coves via a wooden deck. The theme of the main gallery is wonder and hope. Each photo cove is like a chapel consecrated to a different theme: extinction, water, war, and plastic. A short film narrated by de Carbuccia takes visitors behind the scenes on the photographic expeditions and illuminates the intention of the work. A spectacular exterior component of the exhibition will take place on a part of the Highline that has never been used before. This inaccessible stretch of the Highline will be “re-wilded” with fifty-four trees interspersed with three teleidoscopes—a kind of kaleidoscope with a lens and an open view that creates kaleidoscopic patterns from objects both inside and outside the instrument. The trees and the “game of lights” projections will be visible from Washington Street. Playful and unexpected, the Highline installation aims to surprise, amuse, and suggest possibilities for creating green urban environments. ONE • One Planet One Future is an extended two-month live event with dynamic projections, an interactive public installation, and an immersive experience. About Anne de Carbuccia
      Anne de Carbuccia was born in New York and grew up in Paris. She attended Columbia University in New York City where she studied anthropology and art history, specializing in 17th- and 18th-century art. She returned to Paris and worked for Drouot, one of the oldest and most respected auction houses in the world. She later developed an interest in using photography and films as a means of seeing primitive culture and art in a contemporary context. The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco hostedWater at Dusk, a solo exhibition of images from Anne’s time shrines project (January 30¬–February 28, 2016). Private collectors in Europe and the U.S. have acquired her photographs and video art portraits.

      Time Shrine Foundation
      In 2015, de Carbuccia founded the non-profit organization, Time Shrine Foundation, as a way to fund efforts to raise awareness and protect vulnerable environments and cultures. The exhibition ONE is another way in which the Foundation seeks to promote these goals. All proceeds from the sale of de Carbuccia’s original artworks support environmental efforts in the places she photographs and films.

    • Piuarch put on show the Kinetic Garden

      
ionone world | design | Piuarch | Piuarch put on show the Kinetic Garden

      At the Milan Design Week 2016, Piuarch pays tribute to Venezuelan Artist Carlos Cruz-Diez with an optical installation created using botanical essences. Chromatic effects make dynamic the courtyard of Via Palermo 1 in Milan

      For the Milan Design Week 2016, Piuarch dedicates to kinetic art a special set up of its roof garden in Via Palermo 1, Milan. Set in the heart of the old city, the Kinetic Garden is a homage to the Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez which has always been a reference point for Piuarch. The project is a collaboration with the landscape designer Cornelius Gavril which trough the use of flowers and vegetables, designs the space in order to produce the feeling of movement and dynamism. The peculiar structure of flower beds and pallets created by Piuarch on the roof of their building, welcome a disposition of 4 plants - two varieties of salad in red and green and two pansy in yellow and blue - each essence defines a uniform color strip arranged in straight lines constantly repeated. The chromatic effect is amplified by the use of triangular axis placed along the lines of color to increase the perceived depth. The installation creates an active relationship between space and guests: the static image becomes dynamic. Partners are VerdeVivo who oversaw the preparation of plants and Vivai Mandelli who took care of the installation.

      Kinetic Garden is the special exhibition designed for the 300 square meters roof area of the Piuarch building – in via Palermo 1, Milan. THE MODULAR PALLET SYSTEM Central to this concept is the creation of a modular system that uses pallets to build easily assembled structures that combine aesthetics and functionality at a reasonable cost. The Garden aims to be an inspiring system, repeatable on a large scale for redeveloping areas that are not used. The pallets are used both as a walking surface and, upside-down, as containers for soil. In this way, a single modular element is used to create the garden’s layout.

      Kinetic Garden
      Piuarch.
      Via Palermo n. 1
      From April 12 to 16
      Schedule: 10.00 / 14: 00 and 15.00 / 18: 00

    • Mei Xian Qiu "I Love You"

      by Los Angeles Center for Digital Art

      "I started to think towards two divergent rivulets. One, the phrase "I love you" as used in daily parlance, aggressive, vulnerable, necessary, and common simultaneously, the most important frightening thing; it was also a gateway to what you, yes, as an individual with a perceived sense of identity, believe others want you to say to them; it was a qualifier to other more alluring and emotionally specific concerns. How do we trade in love, sex, happiness?"
      An inspiration for the series had been "Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe" by Edouard Manet, depicting a nude woman at a picnic with 2 well dressed men. Painted in a rough, bold manner, this painting caused controversy in 1862 for its shocking and raw depiction of gender inequality, revealing the nude tantalizing figure as both a probable prostitute as well as an allegorical muse. Again, there is the study of contrasts -- the feminine versus the masculine, the naked versus the clothed, the elite versus the commonplace, and the innate aggression versus the vulnerability of the act of nudity itself.
      Which led to secondly, maybe not so divergently, the fetishization and objectification of inspiration, of the muse, of all passion—the shattering, obvious, hard edge of this that tail gates easier romanticized views. The series, "I love you” examines the intersections of adoration and desperation, victim and aggressior, oppression and self oppression, globalism, even colonialization and provincialism."

ionone world | design | eVolo Magazine  | 2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition

      eVolo Magazine is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition. The award recognizes innovative design and creates a forum for the discussion and development of the discipline. What is the future of furniture design? eVolo Magazine received 233 entries from 34 different countries. The Jury selected 3 winners and 20 honorable mentions. The first place was awarded to I-Ting Tsai, Xixi Zheng, Yiru Yun, and Somdatta Majumdar from the United Kingdom for the design of Fabric Chair. This project is an investigation on the use of fabric as a structural material in furniture design. A special resin was developed to harden fabric placed on a rigid mold. The resin hardens the fabric to become structural while retaining its softness in specific locations. Studio La Cube from Spain received the second place for their project Simmis Chair. This simple and elegant design is a study on symmetry and proportions. The goal was to create a dialogue between visual lightness and the strength and heaviness of wood and steel. The third place was awarded to Open Source Workshop from Italy and the United States for the design of Helix, a diffuse furniture system that generates a continuous interior space by adapting simultaneously to any vertical and horizontal surface while defining an immersive spatial atmosphere. The honorable mentions include materials explorations, the use of digital design and manufacturing processes as well as studies in ergonomics and experiential possibilities. The members of the Jury are: Ammar Eloueini [principal Ammar Eloueini Digit-all Studio], Joel Escalona [principal Joel Escalona Studio, NONO], Mitchell Joachim [principal Terraform ONE], Po Shun Leong [principal Po Shun Leong Design], and Alexander Lervik [principal Lervik Design AB].

    • Speak Nearby - Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir, Theresa Himmer, and Emily Weiner

      by Soloway
      Soloway is pleased to present Speak Nearby, a three-person exhibition featuring work by Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir, Theresa Himmer, and Emily Weiner. Working with distinct methods of appropriation, these artists playfully draw on established domains such as anthropology, history, physics, semiotics, and philosophy. Classical Roman sculpture meets the faux marble of contemporary domestic decor; an eccentric short story-cum-Hollywood film is revisited through an unexpected setting, language, and temporality; and the cosmic notion of a passage through space-time is introduced in a residential backyard. Through film, painting, photography, and installation, the three artists contest the insidious cycle of hollow imitation, attempting to evoke new readings as they render the familiar strange and new again.
