SHANGHAI 上海

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am very pleased and honoured to announce that I have been selected by the Goethe-Institut Shanghai and the Shanghai Institute of Design of the China Academy of Art as the finalist and resident artist of the 2018 “German Artists in Shanghai” residency program.

I am grateful and excited to return to Shanghai this fall to continue my artistic creation and to discuss the theme of exhibition making and portrait photography with the students of the China Academy of Art.

I would like to express my gratitude to the Goethe-Institut and the China Academy of Art for their trust and enthusiasm for my work, which has enabled me to continue my long-standing Shanghai story.

亲爱的朋友们和同事们,

在此非常荣幸地宣布,我已被歌德学院(上海)和中国美术学院上海设计学院遴选为2018年度 “德国艺术家在上海”驻留项目的最终获选者和驻留艺术家。

我非常感激,并对于今秋即将回到上海去继续我的艺术创作,并和中国美术学院的学生们共同探讨有关展览制作和肖像摄影的主题而感到格外兴奋。

特此向歌德学院和中国美术学院对我的作品的信任和热情,使我得以延续自己长久以往的上海故事而表示感谢。

Pavlosv's dog PIN UP press release!

PIN UP ! 
Gruppenausstellung
 
Pin-Ups – Bilder von jungen, hübschen Frauen in mal mehr oder weniger erotischen Posen (selten auch von Männern) wurden heimlich oder zumindest auf der Innenseite von Spinden, Büchern, Schranktüren angebracht. 

Nicht an der Außenseite – nicht für jeden ersichtlich. Diese Bilder vergilben irgendwann, kriegen Eselsohren, fallen ab. Sie werden Opfer der Zeit. Eines Prozesses.

Heute laden wir Bilder von uns in allen möglichen Posen selbst täglich in sozialen Medien hoch. Wir prostituieren uns auf Facebook, Instagram und Pinterest . Wir pinnen „uns“ quasi auf virtuelle Wände. Manchmal wollen wir auch wieder runter. Aber vergeblich. Das Netz vergisst nicht. Im digitalen Langzeitgedächtnis bleibt alles und im digitalen Kurzzeitgedächtnis werden im Sekundentakt neue Bilder ersichtlich. Zeit zum Altern bleibt nicht. Die neue Art von Voyeurismus. Von jedem, für jeden, jederzeit.

Schlussendlich geht es aber allen diesen Bildern um Träume – geheime, sexuelle, verbotene. Träume lassen sich schlecht nach politisch und gendermäßig korrekten Maßstäben beurteilen.

Pin-Ups verwirklichen diese Träume. Man kann sie nicht zensieren, denn Vorstellungen und Phantasien sind frei – zumindest bis zur Umsetzung.

Group exhibition
 
Pin-Ups – everyone knows these images of young, beautiful women (and sometimes, but rarely men) in more or less erotic poses. These photographs have always been secretly affixed to the inside of lockers, books or wardrobe doors – on the inside of course – not for everyone to see. 

However, after a while, the photographs start to fade, they get dog-ears and eventually they fall off. They fall victim to time – a process that is inevitable. 

In the times of social media we upload photographs of ourselves posing in all kind of ways on a daily basis. We prostitute ourselves on facebook, instagram or pinterest etc. We “pin” ourselves to virtual walls. Sometimes we would like to “un-pin” us – but unsuccessfully so: Because the internet does not forget. Everything remains in the virtual long-term memory whereas the virtual short-term memory is constantly filled with new images every second of every day. There is no time to age, to fade. In this new form of voyeurism everyone looks at everyone and is looked at by everyone all the time.

What all the images have in common though are the desires they represent: secret, sexual, tabooed phantasies and it is hard to judge these dreams by political or gender sensitive criteria.

Pin-ups are the realisation of these desires. One cannot censor them, as dreams and phantasies and thoughts are free – that is until their realisation of course.

RedLine Presents: Playing with Beauty

Curated by Mark Sink

Press Preview: March 13, 2015 at 11 AM

Opening on March 14, 2015

Member’s Preview: 6-7 PM

Public Reception: 7- 10 PM

 (DENVER- January 2015) Since 2011 RedLine has served as the nerve center for Denver’s Month of Photography exhibition and is excited to return in this same role in 2015!  Mark Sink will also return to curate this year’s Month of Photography’s signature exhibition, Playing with Beauty. Sink is a curator, artist, photographer, and is the champion of infusing and connecting Denver for two months with the most exciting and innovative work going on in the field of contemporary fine art photography. Playing with Beauty specifically explores how the loaded subject of beauty is now being approached, or “played with, in photography today. As Sink explains,

I have always been interested in the impact beauty has in our lives and culture. Examples of this are in early historical surveys of the romanticized west and continue on to todays’ contemporary visions. Through MoP’s signature exhibition, I explore this timeless interest in the human form as well as our culture of celebrity worship. Beauty drives my personal work and life and I am interested how others deal with the subject through the lens. Visitors to Playing with Beauty can anticipate works exploring this subjective and often controversial topic in art; ranging from classical to conceptual, from humorous to dark.

A long debated subject in the medium of photography, Sink has curated 25 artists to reveal how beauty is being portrayed, explored and interpreted today.  He has also offered the subject matter of beauty to be explored as a MoP theme (though not mandatory) and many galleries in Denver are participating (e.g. Center for Fine Art Photography, Gildar Gallery, and The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver).

Playing with Beauty is a group exhibition and will be on view at RedLine through April 19, 2015. 

Artists: Robert Adams, Thomas Alleman, Mandy Barker, Libby Barbee, Herbert Bayer, Phil Bender, Sir Cecil Beaton, Howard Bond, Patty Carroll, Jason DeMarte, Mitch Dobrowner, Chuck Forsman, Paula Gillen, Laura Gilpin, J Gluckstern, Philippe Halsman, Paul Harbaugh, Eikoh Hosoe, William Henry Jackson, Susanne Junker, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Susan Lipper, Renluka Maharaj, Christopher Makos, Timothy O'Sullivan, Linda Elvira Piedra, Sean Rozales, Laura Shill, Martin Stupich, Jock Sturges, Paulette Tavormina.

Press Preview

The press preview will include a tour with Mark Sink, joined by Conor King and Rupert Jenkins, curators of Role Play, presented by the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC) in RedLine’s Project Space. Role Play is presented by CPAC for Month of Photography and will open the same evening in RedLine’s Project Space.
