Opening Reception: March 29,  6-8PM through April 15 2012
"In this spring 2012 course students were challenged to visually engage the body and the way in which it is outwardly perceived through costume design and public displays of performance art. The costumes in this exhibition are based on the idea of volume, whether sensory or in relation to size and space, creating a widespread variety of views on the human form as art object. The artists aim to expose D.C. to performance art, costume, and questions regarding the modern perception of the body."

Rene Medrano was featured in the March 22 edition of SoapBox at the Hillyer Art Space in which the performances draw inspiration from clothing and fashion. Below is a blurb that was on the pamphlet for the performance.

"Rene Medrano: Performing in a busted homespun couture, DC-based Rene Medrano professes a raging fervor as the fabricated character of Suldoga. "SULDOGA," a fashion performance, balances between genres of high and low art, theater and performance, masculine and feminine. In spite of personal inclination, the performance generates greater ideas about identity, judgement, and social stereotypes. The performance relates a certain solemnity through several layers of theatricality in synergy of references including haute couture assembly, genderfuck drag, and spoken-word poetry. The fashion, a collection of seductive surfaces that attest to the superficiality of gender assignment and societal role-playing, is brought to life through movement and speech. The piece is a narrative nude of existence despite its garishness by becoming an amplified version of nakedness. Common of Medrano’s work "SULDOGA" consists of a thoughtful concept addressing austere subject matter told thorugh the humor and charm of glamorous materiality. "SULDOGA" is a spectacle of declarative fury, complex imagery, and ultimately a testament to the skin we all live in….."

DEAN MONOGENIS

When these works were explained it was interesting how buildings are like living things yet can be vulnerable. Below is a blurb from the pamphlet:

Through my work I explore situational relationships of otherwise incongruous elements. An example would be a high rise at the foot of a glorious mountain, or a “new construction” condo spawning out of an isolated field of vegetation. I paint these settings as utopias or fantasy environments. Noticeably, the more I scour the internet or document my travels for source material, the more I find that some of these imagined scenarios already exist. In such cases, my work becomes a commentary on globalization or expansion, which are inevitable. While this may be true, I am not making an indictment. Instead, I am more interested in exploring the awkward beauty inherent in development and decay.

The concept of transformation — in theory and practice — has a firm place in my painting. Though my work looks highly rendered, I employ an active process of editing. Normally, I paint on wood or plastic panels employing customized stencils. Utilizing the dialogue established between different painting techniques, these stencil-applied graphic elements are integrated with areas that I paint freehand. Line, edge, and texture are very important to me as well. To accentuate these formal concerns I often paint things like the sky last, which creates a shallow, imbedded quality to the painted imagery underneath. The effect works to maximize the visual tension on the painted surface, challenging the logic of what naturally should be in front and behind. As the picture develops there inevitably comes a point for revision, that I achieve by sanding and reworking areas to bring them back to a zero state. This ability to erase allows me to maintain precision without forfeiting spontaneity and improvisation.”

VOLTA NY 2012
Carl Emmanuel Wolff “ Die Achse des Bösen”
Represented by Schuebbe Projects, Düsseldorf, Germany
Here is a Blurb from the Volta website on the artist:
“Born 1957 in Germany
 ”Different things are an image. Sports, fables, cigars, salad, meat - whatever - can be added. While studying we question the assertion of ‘art’ and also the assertion of ‘reality’.”
Carl Emanuel Wolff’s sculptures and installations focus on the question of the place of the ideological and the factual in contemporary art. He displays his works in mundane places, outside traditional exhibition contexts - not just for the sake of using alternative settings, but as a means of exploring and radically questioning the ways in which the museum, and the everyday world, allow the artwork to be seen: complementing and integrating it, or suspending its effect.

The artist uses places and situations in which the individuality of the goods on display creates an aesthetic “surplus” which appears identical to that of the artwork. The cigar, for example - the product of a sophisticated culture of smoking - serves as an artificial form or an art form in which content and image coincide, but which preserves the directness of sensuous perception, instead of imposing determinate meanings and interpretations. The same applies in the use of the fairy tale or the game of snooker. Wolff’s works establish open structures in which the conditions of perception depend directly on the willingness of viewers to engage with the work and complement it through personal involvement.”
