WHAT TO COLLECT # 117. ANNETTE KELM

Annette KELM was born 1975 in Stuttgart, Germany. She currently lives and works in Berlin. Kelm is interested in typologies, models of mass production, the function of objects and the nature of their representation, and stylistic developments in patterned textiles, design, and technology. In her work she conflates several genres in single images or in series on a single motif that combine a variety of artistic, historical, and cross-cultural references. Taken with large- and medium-format analog cameras and individually printed by hand, her carefully composed pictures appear not unlike advertisements. But their sense of precise objectivity is undercut by artifice…

WHAT TO COLLECT #115. ALMAGUL MENLIBAYEVA

Born 1969 in Almaty, Kazakhstan. She lives and works in Berlin and Almaty. Artist Statement “My educational background is in the Soviet Russian, avant-garde school of Futurism, which I combine with the nomadic aesthetic of post-Soviet, contemporary Kazakhstan that I have been exploring in recent years through photographic and video work. I use specific modes of expression in modern and contemporary art as a vehicle to investigate my personal archaic atavism as a certain mystical anthropomorphism. In other words, I explore the nature of a specific Egregore, a shared cultural psychic experience, which manifests itself as a specific form of…

WHAT TO COLLECT # 111. Marina De Caro

Born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina Lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina Body, behavior and space; intuition, sensitivity, and perception; experience and knowledge: these are the keywords of Marina De Caro’s work. De Caro develops her poetics from the field of drawing towards the realms of sculpture and performance. Her spatial and action-based works often incorporate soft wearable sculptures especially designed to invite the viewer/performer to experience an unpredictable regard on the every day, on bodily and social behavior and norms. In her drawings and experiences, De Caro disrupts the given, abruptly. A most refined and irreverent master…

BEST WAY TO APPROACH A GALLERY

For me, one of the most intriguing moments for the contemporary art, that this is a human way of speaking about our transformations. From the personal prospectives to the outside world we are studying identities in action through the different art technics. I see art as a dominant element which contains a range of conceptual meanings and theoretical roles associated with it. If you think that your work has a strong manifestation and deserves the personal attention of the gallery, you shouldn’t wait with submission. Check out galleries that you think may like your work. Start to explore art spaces…

DON’T JUDGE THE ART

Another Art show is over. Five full days of art in San – Francisco, and what did I get from them? Over 250 galleries from around the world were represented, showing an overwhelming array of art from the most talented, most imaginative contemporary artists in the world. I love to learn from art; I like to learn from other artists. A good show for me means to have a conversation with my mind and to cast about answers for the masterpiece. I encourage myself to find a language to work and to encode the exact subject. I don’t judge the…
