Amalia Pica, Jeremy Shaw and Jorinde Voigt at Manifesta 11
We are pleased to announce the participation of Amalia Pica, Jeremy Shaw and Jorinde Voigt in the 11th edition of Manifesta, Zurich.
For her presentation Jorinde Voigt will be collaborating with the boatmaker Melchior Bürgin on two site specific projects at the Löwenbräukunst and Stämpfli Racing Boats. As Peter Sloterdijk explains in his book Stress and Freedom (2011), Jean-Jacques Rousseau was in a boat on a Swiss lake when he arrived at his notion of freedom, which continues to impact European society to this day. Jorinde Voigt joins these points of reference. Her drawings at Löwenbräukunst take on the dimensions of a 1920 racing boat, which is also on display. Studies for the drawings can be found at Stämpfli Racing Boats AG, where the boat was constructed.
Jeremy Shaw will present his video installation DMT (2004), in which he both formalizes and externalizes individual psychedelic experiences with talking-heads style videos of young subjects high on the hyper-hallucinogen dimethyltriptamine (DMT). Using overlapping time structures, one which shows the 'actors' in real time during the 15 minute high and one which recollects their experience immediately after the trip in subtitles, Shaw conflates conceptual art strategies, performance and documentary with a text-based version of psychedelic art.
Amalia Pica will present drawings from her series Joy in Paperwork, which addresses questions of bureaucracy and arbitrariness. The drawings are made with stamps that the artist picked up from different countries. In times of digitalization, documents are still essential in many official processes. Arranged in different patterns the stamps both play with and subvert our obediance of bureaucracy.
