Thukral & Tagra. SOMNIUM SEMINIBUS II.

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to present Indian artists Thukral & Tagra’s first solo show in Switzerland, SOMNIUM SEMINIBUS II.

A past which is manicured by folklore and natural progression. The ways of seeing them can be challenged and a walk along this one route is what the Artists intend to narrate. This in no meant to be a biological approach or study of species; it juxtaposes the elements which have been inherited and stay together.

I tacchini non ringraziano, a book by Andrea Camilleri. Drawings by Paolo Canevari

In bookstores from November 19th, the latest book by internationally acclaimed italian writer Andrea Camilleri, with drawings by Paolo Canevari, from the 1990’s series “Memoria Mia”. Published by Salani editore.

Lo zoo personale di Andrea Camilleri è fatto di animali e di storie che entreranno nella nostra vita per sempre. Sono ritratti en plein air: impossibile leggerli e vederli senza sentire dentro qualcosa di fortissimo, perché sono pieni di affetto, confondono il confine tra la coscienza umana e quella degli animali e sono sempre a favore di questi ultimi, nel senso di un’armonia della vita solo nel rispetto di tutte le specie viventi. 
Cani, gatti, cardellini, ma anche volpi, serpenti e tigri sono descritti come portatori di uno spirito ricco di amore e di intelligenza, molto più complesso e profondo di quanto pensiamo: una ‘magaria’ inesauribile. Ciascuno di loro sembra comprendere la logica degli uomini, che di volta in volta sfrutta a suo favore o prova a sconfiggere con varie strategie, sempre vincenti: dalla dignità dei tacchini al canto riconoscente di un cardellino, dall’astuzia di un lepro alla commovente compostezza di un gatto innamorato, dalla mite bellezza di una capra alla puntualità discreta di un serpente. Allo stesso tempo Camilleri ci ricorda che forse il mondo è diventato troppo brutto perché la bellezza degli animali abbia diritto a esistere. Ogni storia ci lascia con la consapevolezza dolceamara di tutto quello che rischiamo di perdere, ma anche con la quieta fiducia che sia ancora possibile un mondo in cui convivere e rispettarsi, con l’ausilio di un po’ di buon senso e di umorismo, un mondo meno prepotente e più meritevole di bellezza. Quella che Paolo Canevari con la grazia e la leggerezza dei suoi animali ha fissato sulla carta, anche lui, per sempre.”

DOUBLE LIFE by Olga Kisseleva : projection and debate

Double Life is a video series made up of several diptychs focused on the various ways in which artists manage – or not, as the case may be – to reconcile juggling their ‘day jobs’ and their art proper. By portraying artists in various different walks of life, which often don’t coincide with one another in time, Kisseleva raises questions about whether the artist’s work is appreciated by, and what his contribution is to, a society oriented towards efficiency, productivity and profit. The stories told by Kisseleva reflect the alienation that frequently accompanies living a “double life”.
Initiated in 2007, Double Life has been developed as a collaborative project involving artists from every city in which it has been shown. Artists from Paris, New Delhi, Moscow, Shanghai or New York, have created video content to complement Kisseleva’s artwork and, so far, more than 25 diptychs have been commissionned, to name a few, by Consortium (Dijon), Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow), MNAC (Bucarest), Shanghai Art Museum, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, MOCAK (Krakow) and 49 Nord-Est FRAC Lorraine (Metz).
The Sorbonne’s debat is a collaboration with the LabSIC – EnsadLAB (Paris, France) and the Institute of Sociology – Martin-Luther-Universität of Halle-Wittenberg (Germany).
The book Double Life published by the les presses du réel is avalible.

Olga Kisseleva is a contemporary artist and researcher who works in science and media art. She is the director of the International Institute of Arts and Science. Olga Kisseleva employs a variety of media: video, immersive and virtual reality, performance, interactive installations. Her approach to work is similar to a scientific approach.
