choreographic 9: Galerie, Presentation
Presentation is a lecture introducing the business model and activities of Galerie, including the role of representation and economy. How do you sell a joke? How do you represent a conflict? Presentation will address questions about the intersection of the commercial and the affective and the locality of immaterial artworks. It might include practical exercises as well as time for questions.
Galerie is an immaterial gallery run by artists Simon Asencio and Adriano Wilfert Jensen. The mission of Galerie is to promote immaterial objecthood: works that cannot be reduced to an object or to the documentation of an action. Simultaneously an aesthetic entity, a performance and a curatorial project, Galerie has been involved in a wide range of activities since its launch in 2014, including Group Show – a performed exhibition, The Booth – an empty artfair booth where the two gallerists represent artworks using their own means and offer the works for sale, The Intensive Curse– a workshop on artist and artwork representation, Dream Works – an art fair, in which experience and acquisition happen through subliminal transactions; The Publication – a container and meeting point for various forms of contents on the state of immaterial practices.
Galerie has been working in venues such as Material Art Fair (Mexico City, 2017); Untitled (Miami, 2017); Jan Mot (Brussels, 2017); The Research Pavillion i.c.w. Choreographic/Goldsmiths (Venice, 2017); La Ménagerie de Verre (Paris, 2017), ArtRotterdam (Rotterdam, 2016); De Appel (Amsterdam 2016); La BF15 and ENSBA-École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts (Lyon, 2016) a.o.
Galerie is representing artworks by Krõõt Juurak, Mårten Spångberg, Audrey Cottin, Valentina Desideri, Jan Ritsema, Alex Bailey, Hana Lee Erdman and Pontus Pettersson.
