MICHAEL CHANG "Pictures of Nothing"
HEP 2009 Human Emotion Project
Welcome to the opening
Saturday 29th of August at 12-16
The exhibition is open until September 27, Sat-Sun 12-16
NB: Formverk art zone is closed September 12-13 due to our participation at the new art fair V.art09
Pictures of Nothing is created especially for Formverk art zone.
”One of the ideas represented in these images, is a quiet presence, which we can try to acknowledge and get familiar with.” says Michael Chang. He uses traditional materials in his investigation of the space occupied by the mundane. He is a painter, printmaker and new media artist, based in Copenhagen. The exhibition includes prints created at Crown Point Press in San Francisco, and also paintings, drawings, aquatints, photographs, video and something the artist refers to as alterations.
HEP2009, Human Emotion Project, is a global video project, initiated by Alison Williams, South Africa.
Artists from all around the world are invited to interpret human emotions and inner experiences using moving image. HEP2009 invites curators from different parts of the world to make their selection of the material to be shown in different venues.
Formverk art zone choose to present a month long exhibition as a big wall projection, with selected works in a loop 40 minutes. HEP2009 has been screened at a large number of events, festivals and museums in Europe, and will continue to be spread with planned shows in China, Iran, Georgia, USA, Turkey and Canada.
Great work with CORPSES!
I publish the videos on momente as I thought it is worth spreading the word about the project. Please let me know if you would like to add some words to go together with it.
