Art Rotterdam 2016
1646 will be present at Art Rotterdam showing the work of Shana Moulton at Projections and the work of Helgi Thorsson at Intersections. Art Rotterdam will take place from 11 to 14 February at the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam.
At this moment Helgi Thorsson (Iceland, 1975) is mostly designing furniture and making pottery although painting and sculpting never leaves his side.
At Art Rotterdam he will make the site specific installation Domti collection. In the installation he will demonstrate his new designs and their functions. All together creating a jazzy fusion, where visitors should take time for a taste a little tail of a cock. Some call it visual poetry? One thing is for sure Domti collection will mesmerize you with pure beauty and magic, Domti collection is a must have for any art lover and collector.
Helgi is known for his art all over the world mostly working In Iceland, Finnland, Norway and now the Netherlands were he did his art studies.
Shana Moulton wil present Mindplace Thoughtstream. This video features Moulton’s alter ego Cynthia using the MindPlace ThoughtStream Biofeedback Performance System, a device that helps to attain unprecedented states of wellness and self-control. Cynthia’s attempt at biofeedback triggers a disoriented dialog between her inner and outer world that lacks any sense of self-control but still manages to help her achieve some form of wellness.
Through her performances, videos, and multidimensional installations, Shana Moulton (American, 1976) creates worlds at the threshold of absurdity and truth, catharsis and cliché, the material and the spiritual. Ascribing healing properties to the banal trappings of everyday life, Moulton’s works elicit a potent empathy on the part of the viewer that allows for her narratives to continue beyond the immediate experience of an artwork.
