Sarah Moon at Palazzo Fortuny

Venice
Palazzo Fortuny
19/12 - 01/05 2016

“Every photograph is the last witness, if not the last evidence, of a moment that would otherwise be lost forever; it’s the sense of loss and of time passing…and of death. […] In the action of capturing an instant and making it exist once again, there is life in death; it’s a bit like the spirit and the body, you might say that the body, the event, disappears in the instant in which it is captured, but the soul remains and the photograph is the soul of every instant, the soul of the person whose end we just saw…” – Sarah Moon (Coincidences, Delpire, 2001)     These are the last few days to visit the wonderful Sarah Moon’s exhibition at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice...

Martine Syms: Fact & Trouble

London
Institute of Contemporary Art London – ICA
20/04 - 19/06 2016

“Fact & Trouble” is an exhibition of new and recent photography, video, and sculpture by Martine Syms (b. 1988), a Los Angeles based artist with an ongoing interest in historiography, semiotics, and pop. Syms’s video series Lessons (ongoing), on view at the ICA, is a long, incomplete poem in 180 sections. Each piece is thirty seconds in duration and articulates a lesson from the tradition. One of these lessons is painted on the gallery walls. The videos use the idea of inheritance as a departure point, simulating the private-public unconscious of television shows, advertisements, animated GIFs, police cams, surveillance footage, Vines and other digitally-circulated formats....
