    Vernissage ELEMENTAL 2-4

    The project Elemental is an initiative by Odalys Group, that looks for international promotion of artists from around the world. Its main objective is to cover everything from the creative process, which is enriched by the cultural interrelation between artists through an artist-in-residence program, to the dissemination of their works through participation in art biennials, fairs and both solo and collective exhibitions. The project started with the I/IV Elemental collective exhibition, held in our offices in Madrid at the end of 2013, with the participation of Venezuelan Zoltan Kunckel, the Spanish group Llobet & Pons, Italian Irina Novarese, Hungarian Krisztián Ádám, Kiss Aba Regö and Balázs Sipos, and German Uli Westphal. In less than a year, there has been another solo exhibition by Uli Westphal as well as the participation in three worldwide recognized fairs: Tokyo, Brussels and Madrid. At present, Elemental has the support of the prestigious Berliner Institute Für Kunst im Kontext, the Moholy Nagy Institute in Budapest and the Goethe Institute. The second collective exhibition of Project Elemental includes a group of artists focusing on the theme of memory, which is addressed from different scopes and perspectives, though they maintain a common connection: encouraging the spectator to re-read an already known image that in many occasions remains dormant in our subconscious. This re-reading triggers an endless number of emotions extending from fear to nostalgia. Cuban artist Ernesto Rancaño, defines memory as an ode to the ephemeral nature of time. In Olvido, time stops just when loneliness becomes the protagonist. Representations from scenes of Spanish Hugo Alonso's horror movies, rekindle the fear of human's deepest nightmares; while the infinite ocean projected in Cuban artist Mabel Poblet’s work, denotes a nostalgic apathy almost resigned over the impossibility of changing destiny. Lidzie Alvisa's work invites the public to travel in time through a series of icons from different periods arranged like an electrocardiogram; thus creating an analogy between the heart's health and the emotions produced by the spectator's remembrance of times past. Furthermore, Hungarian Mátrai Erik presents memory as an abstract concept. In his work, the spectator makes an association with geometrical figures that appear when memories are stimulated through the projection of light over a surface. Chilean artist Felipe Águila, defines memory with a much more universal view. In his work, memory is not a remembrance, nor an object or time in history. In his work, memory is everything, it is an intangible element that make us humans and without which nothing makes sense; not even art. The project Elemental has scheduled a series of activities in the near future, including the collective exhibition II/IV Elemental, whose curatorial text has been written by the curator and professor Katja Jedermann; Irina Novarese’s solo exhibition, and the participation of nine artists of the project in The Havana Biennial.

    Vernissage Human Nature of Uli Westphal

    Uli Westphal's work addresses how humans perceive, depict and transform the natural world, how cultural ideas, dogmas and misconceptions influence our relationship towards nature and how we ultimately change the appearance of plants and animals themselves. Human Nature exhibits a selection of photographs, installations and graphics that trace aspects of this process throughout history; from the dawn of agriculture, to the rise of zoology, to the effects of industrialized food production on fruits and vegetables. - Since the dawn of agriculture we have shaped and transformed a broad number of organisms towards our needs, while at the same time promoting their survival and geographic range. Through breeding and artificial selection we have developed a seemingly infinite diversity of shapes and colors from the wild ancestors of today's domesticated plants. Since the industrialization of agriculture, our focus has shifted to only a few modern, high yielding, robust, 'good looking', uniform and predictable varieties. This change has led to the displacement of traditional varieties. A vast majority of all varieties developed by humans have already become extinct during the last 50 years. With them we not only loose genetic diversity, but also a living cultural and culinary heritage. Without commercial utilization, the remaining varieties may only survive in seed vaults, through the work of dedicated farmers or in our own backyards and gardens. The genetic plasticity and adaptability of these plants are of critical importance for the sustainability and security of our global future food supply.

    Vernissage ELEMENTAL 1-4

    ELEMENTAL (collective exhibition) From 19 September to the end of October. Inauguration (attended by some of the artists): 19 September at 8.00pm. ELEMENTAL (the term alludes to the four traditional elements and, by extension, to diversity within unity) is the first of four exhibitions devoted to a number of international artists with links to Berlin, one of the world's leading centres of contemporary creative work. On this occasion we are presenting the works of Ádám Krisztián (Hungary, 1976), Zoltan Kunckel (Venezuela; Caracas, 1975), Llobet & Pons (Spain; Barcelona, 1978 and Madrid, 1979) Irina Novarese (Italy; Turin, 1972), Kiss Abba Regó (Hungary; Dunaújváros, 1977), Balazs Sipos (Hungary) y Uli Westphal (Germany; Bochum, 1980). This exhibition will be followed by three other itinerant editions, in principle in Caracas, Madrid and Berlin, also focusing on the work of emerging artists associated with Berlin. The collection features a variety of procedures and strategies, using different supports and materials. All the works are of great aesthetic quality and conceptual interest, reflecting the parameters of the latest developments in art and inviting us to take an open, imaginative approach to our reading of geometric forms. ELEMENTAL is, for nearly all of these artists, their first contact with the Spanish public and, for the Odalys Foundation, it is a first step in promoting and disseminating the work of emerging artists, a task which is fundamental to the aims of its exhibition programme. The Foundation’s activities also include the creation of a scheme of grants and placements for the training of artists abroad. Three of the artists taking part in this exhibition will also be present at the Odalys Gallery stand during the SUMMA art fair, to be held in Matadero-Madrid from 19 to 22 September: Irina Novarese and the team formed by Jasmina Llobet and Luis Fernández Pons. ELEMENTAL has received the very valuable support of Berlin's Institut für Kunst im Kontext, with which all the artists in the exhibition have links. The text in the catalogue was written by Víctor Zarza, art critic of ABC Cultural and Director of the Department of Painting and Restoration at the Complutense University of Madrid. An exclusive edition of boxes has also been produced, containing the catalogue and an original piece by each artist, produced specially for this exhibition.
