NEW : "DIALOGUE? " :random / targeted ART INTERVENTION series by Simon Mack : ISTANBUL : july 2013 ++
started initially whilst I was exhibiting at a group show at the Bereznitsky Gallery in Berlin in 2009, Liverpool 2013 - Bluecoat Art gallery 3 - Liverpool + now Istanbul 2013 : the idea of random / found / targeted interventions has developed in my practice
Istanbul :july 2013 :
successfully exhibited across Istanbul july 2013 - with my intervention art series "staticZENtv" across selected public transport hubs + modes of transport across the city. on, in, outside locations - bus stops, public taxi, ferry seats + terminal locations.
artist interveniions at various public transport ,street + artspaces across Istanbul with my series "staticZENtv" video stills - temporarily exhibiting them , opening up a potential dialogue with the art as intervention both to the random chosen environment + public passing by, as
a channel to open new potential thoughts processes as to the message of the work, but also people's perceptions of what art is - temporal, permanent, political, social, or mute?
based loosely on Brazilian intervention pioneer artist Cildo Meireles.
"Intervention can (also) refer to art which enters a situation outside the art world in an attempt to change the existing conditions there. For example, intervention art may attempt to change economic or political situations, or may attempt to make people aware of a condition that they previously had no knowledge of. Since these goals mean that intervention art necessarily addresses and engages with the public, some artists call their work "public interventions".
