TODAY was the first day where I was not inspired by the input of the #30dayhomelove : SCANDI STYLE. my home is not really following a Scandinavian design per se. I do love simple things, muted colors and lots of light. here you can see my former nursing chair (ikea) which now has become Levi's jumping board (wobbel board) and most important in that constellation is the matt from ikea to prevent the worse. 🙈 . . . #todayspic #challenge #love #scandinavianstyle #style #wobbel #ikea #home #design #homesweethome #stayhome #lifestyle #homelove #room #kids #nursing #nursery #toddler #wobbelboard #chair #inlove #scandistyle #notsosure #indecisive
This years BILDRAUSCH FILMFEST is about to start today and Cristian got the chance to preview the romanian movie: I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians and here is what he has to say about it.
After Aferim, the Romanian director Radu Jude brings in front of the large audience another dark episode of his country´s history. In the same type of relaxed tempo that he used in Aferim, he unveils scene after scene the horrors of wars.
Radu Jude is appointing his ambassador of truth in the person of the present day theater director Mariana Marin played by Ioana Iacob. Mariana chooses to direct a play that is essentially a historical reconstruction of the Odessa massacre and to present her work in an open square in the center of Bucharest, probably the most important public space in Romanian recent history.
Mariana is trying to make a shocking argument know your history and accept it as it is, but she learns fast that this is not coming easy, the plot step by step is unveiling a surreal world with its surreal problems, that picks every day comfort of ignorance over the harsh truth of humanity.
Radu Jude builds the narrative of people falling into oblivion, neglecting their past and building their future on ignorance and lies.
Even though the movie, I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians, can be seen as addressing itself directly to the Romanian people that in many ways decides to ignore certain pages of their history, finding themselves in a constant process of self-victimization, it addresses to all of us a hard lesson that you need to know and accept your past as it was because that it is the only recipe to build a better future.
“Îmi este indiferent dacă în istorie vom intra ca barbari”
Cristian was born in Brasov in 1982 and has spent his life in Brasov and Bucharest and moved to Basel, Switzerland in 2011. He hopes that this review was helpful and that you will get a chance to watch the movie on either Thursday or Sunday in Basel. Please visit the BILDRAUSCH FILMFEST website to find out more about the other movies they will show.

About Bildrausch Filmfest
Ever since its first edition in 2011, Bildrausch has been dedicated to the innovative film d’auteur. As a «festival of festivals», it invites new discoveries that caused a stir at the international festival circuit as a result of their idiosyncratic cinematic language and their uncompromisingly different approach to narration. Curiosity and openness are the key principles when it comes to our selection of films. We focus on cinematic quality, on the pleasure of visual expression and the art of telling stories in a new way. From different perspectives, we take a fresh look at current issues. In short: We focus on film as an art form.
At the heart of Bildrausch lies the international competition «Cutting Edge», which showcases a dozen carefully selected films. An international jury awards the best film with a prize sum of 5,000 Swiss Francs and presents its winner with the «Bildrausch Ring of Film Art».
VOLTA will be back in Basel during the Art Basel week for its 15th time and this year I have amazing news for you all. There is a PROMO CODE to get FREE TICKETS to VOLTABASEL19
It’s super easy just use the code isawsomethingnice on www.voltashow.com/tickets for a general admission ticket (max 2 tickets per booking). FYI the Vernissage is on June 10th from 12-7 pm and is free for everyone so you can get yourself some free tickets to see the fair from June 11th to June 15th 2019!
VOLTA, Basel’s art fair for new international positions, debuted in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA’s inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair.

Noted for being a “space for discovery”, VOLTA returns to the former COOP distribution center as the newest cultural hub in Basel. Located across from the Novartis Campus at Elsässerstrasse 215, just 9 minutes away from the main fair and within the neighborhood of the very first venue at Voltaplatz. VOLTA sets the tone and plants its (artistic) flag as the first major event within the space.
VOLTA assembles 79 galleries across four continents and 25 nations to showcase compelling artist projects. This year my friend Annelien Kers will be present with KERS GALLERY and I am so happy to share with you some information about her gallery and her featured artist/s soon.

Curated for the third consecutive year by Samuel Leuenberger, ART PARCOURS 2018
presents 23 site-specific artworks displayed throughout Basel’s historic center.
The sector will feature work by Silvia Bächli & Eric Hattan, Nina Beier, stanley
brouwn, Julian Charrière, Keren Cytter, Simon Denny, Elmgreen & Dragset, Georg
Herold, Pierre Huyghe, Hilary Lloyd, Mark Manders, Caroline Mesquita, Rivane
Neuenschwander, Marina Pinsky, Julian Rosefeldt, Nedko Solakov, Simon Starling,
Jessica Stockholder, Thomas Struth, Paloma Varga Weisz and Hannah Weinberger.
>> ART PARCOURS 2018 MAP <<
On Saturday, June 16, Parcours Night once again will present a specially curated
program of live performances with extended opening hours of Parcours and of
some of Basel’s leading museums. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, takes
place at Messe Basel from June 14 to June 17, 2018.
Opening Monday afternoon, June 11, ART PARCOURS 2018 will reflect on the political potentials of storytelling, seeking to investigate what stories can tell us about our lives. Titled ‘Telling Stories for the Future’, the exhibition will encompass presentations in civic and private locations that will open exclusively for Parcours as well as collaborations with Basel’s museums, encouraging alternative social and geographical encounters with the city.
Through a focus on storytelling, Samuel Leuenberger, Director and Curator of SALTS in Birsfelden, Switzerland, aims to cultivate commonalities and allied thinking across social, geographic, ethnic, economic and ecological boundaries. Highlights include Thomas Struth’s ‘Animals’ (2018), a series of 10 photographs that sensitively capture animals following their moment of surrender. Installed in the Erste Kirche Christi, the work will be drawn from his recent images of scientific and surgical environments, as well as the history of memento mori in art. A program of live music, chosen by Struth in collaboration with guitarist Frank Bungarten, will be presented at selected times throughout the week.
By installing 10 sound systems throughout Basel’s sewers, Hannah Weinberger will create a mysterious soundscape scattered across the city that invites the public to tune into a new experience of the city. Each of the 10 sewers will be activated with site-specific compositions created by Weinberger that play against the daily sounds of the sewers and the city.
Suspended in mid-air inside the Antikenmuseum Basel und Sammlung Ludwig, Elmgreen & Dragset’s large-scale sculpture ‘Hanging Rock’ (2017) will act as a blockade, concealing certain elements of the architectural structure that surrounds it. Playing on the ideas of nature, gravity and natural phenomena, the piece explores preconceived views of natural beauty and the overcoming of obstacles. Pierre Huyghe’s ‘Exomind (Deep Water)’ (2017) features a crouching female figure with a beehive growing from her head. The colony of bees living inside the hive will pollinate the surrounding flora in the garden of the Allgemeine Lesegesellschaft Basel.

LISTE 2018 – The world´s most well-established and enduring promotion- and discoverer fair for galleries of the young and middle generation.
The 23rd edition of LISTE – Art Fair Basel will take place from June 11 through 17, 2018. LISTE 2018 will once again be the meeting place for important collectors, eminent museum people, art lovers and artists. An exciting selection of contemporary, mostly emerging art will be presented, promising many new discoveries.
This year´s LISTE will present 79 galleries from 32 countries, with works by over 170 artists. The participating galleries come from Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, France, Greece, Great Britain, Guatemala, Holland, Italy, Japan, Colombia, Kosovo, Cuba, Lebanon, Mexico, Norway, New Zealand, Austria, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland, Spain, South Africa, Turkey, and the USA.
It is important to LISTE to present galleries from a very broad spectrum of countries and cities – including regions located away from art centers. LISTE 2018 is considered the most important fair for a young generation of galleries. Thus, every ambitious international young gallery applies to participate at LISTE. Our jury – composed exclusively of curators and artists – selected the most important aspiring galleries of a younger and middle generation from over 250 applicants. These galleries will bring a high-caliber selection of contemporary art to Basel, among which will also be many new discoveries. As a not-for-profit-oriented fair, LISTE has been working tirelessly to the promote new galleries. The fair strives to ease the entry of galleries into the international art market by providing reasonable terms and conditions.

As in past years, LISTE ́s primary objective is to introduce the world ́s most promising new galleries in Basel. Peter Bläuer, the fair ́s director, is very pleased that 16 of the 79 galleries will be appearing at LISTE for the first time. Among those galleries are: Maria Bernheim (Zurich), Bodega (New York), Chapter NY (New York), Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles), Dürst Britt & Mayhew (The Hague), El Apartamento (Havanna), Ermes – Ermes (Vienna), Gianni Manhattan (Vienna), Ginerva Gambino (Cologne), Ivan (Bucharest), Noah Klink (Berlin), Park View / Paul Soto (Los Angeles / Brussels), PM8 (Vigo), Proyectos Monclova (Mexiko City), Sé, (São Paulo) and Sultana (Paris).
GJM Charbel Night Cartography 3
Galerie Maria Bernheim (Zurich) will make its debut with a solo presentation by Swiss artist Denis Savary (*1981). The artist creates works with complex relational systems that convey a poetic effect. Another solo presentation will be presented at Bodega (New York): Em Rooney (*1983, US) focuses on the transitory nature of textures in materials and memories in the context of the transition to digital storage. Young gallery Chapter NY from New York will be presenting Mira Dancy (*1979, US), Ann Greene Kelly (*1988, US) and Willa Nasatir (*1990, US). Danielle Dean (*1982, US/UK) will make her LISTE debut at Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles) with an installation composed of sculptures and video. Viennese gallery Ermes/Ermes will present the artists Gina Folly (*1983, CH) and Bleta Jahaj (*1981, XK) in an artistic dialogue. Foy examines the effect of cultural and social changes on daily reality, while Jahaj focuses the body in motion in pictorial language. The gallery Gianni Manhattan of Vienna will show sculptures by Hungarian artist Zsófia Keresztes (*1985). Sculptures and drawings by Alex Wissel (*1983, DE) will be presented at young gallery Ginerva Gambino (Cologne). Ivan Gallery from Bucharest will introduce three young artists: Jaro Varga (*1982, SK), Ștefan Sava (*1982, RO) and Cristian David (*1979, RO).
For 23 years – small but mighty and enormously important.
As a not-for-profit-oriented fair, LISTE has been working tirelessly since it inception in 1996 to promote new galleries. The fair strives to ease the path to the international art market for galleries at reasonable terms and conditions. After its founding in 1996, LISTE developed within a very short time into one of the most important fairs for a new and middle generation of galleries and their mainly young artists. The fair annually hosts approximately 80 highly promising international galleries from over 30 countries, many of which are young and mostly still unknown. Similarly, it is very important to LISTE to introduce important, new and interesting galleries from locations not near the art market. Thus, it would be difficult to find a gallery established after 1996 and numbering among the world’s most important whose path included an appearance at LISTE.

DESIGN MIAMI BASEL 2018
In addition to presentations by 47 of the world’s most prestigious design galleries, ten Curio installations, ten Design at Large projects, and the culminating presentations from the three Swarovski Designers of the Future award winners, Design Miami Basel 2018 presents six Satellites & Collaborations, seven Design Talks, and more.
SATELITES & COLLABORATIONS
CALVIN KLEIN’s first installation at Design Miami Basel 2018 presents a unique vision of an expansive international landscape, as interpreted by Chief Creative Officer, Raf Simons, featuring an authentic American barn and a showcase of limited edition Cassina Feltri armchairs with upholstery selected by Mr. Simons. An admirer of Gaetano Pesce’s work, Mr. Simons approached Cassina about initiating what he refers to as a “cultural correspondence.”
The result is a selection of 100 numbered Feltri armchairs in which CALVIN KLEIN house codes are applied to the armchair’s interior upholstery.
The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, in collaboration with SFA Advisory and Southern Guild, presents a project of collectible design pieces by renowned South African designer Porky Hefer. Drawing attention to the foundation’s dedication to the long-term health and well-being of all Earth’s inhabitants by supporting projects that build climate resiliency, protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, and restore balance to threatened ecosystems and communities, Hefer created five large-scale, functional, and sculptural designs of endangered species: orangutan, polar bear, sloth, blue whale, and great white shark. Visitors are invited to sit in, on, and around these friendly sculptural creatures, igniting a sense of empathy as the stories of the animals’ hardships and the importance of their survival to our own lives are recounted through interaction, video, and text.

Stuart Parr presents selections from his collection of classic 1950s, ‘60s, and ‘70s Italian motorcycles and cars in the following three categories. The Mini: These small but versatile vehicles have a top speed of about 60 mph from the rear-mounted, mostly two-cylinder engines. They were and still are the ultimate beach car and, for Fiat founder Gianni Agnelli, a perfect fit for his yacht. The Mighty: The magnificent Iso Grifo designed at Bertone by Giorgetto Giugiaro is equipped with powerful Chevrolet Corvette engines, ensuring reliability and autostrada speeds upwards of 140 mph, making it one of the world’s fastest production cars at the time––Italian beauty, American muscle. The Moto: Italian motorcycles were born on the track. Their story has been inscribed on the most famous racing tracks in the world.
The Collectors Lounge at DESIGN MIAMI BASEL 2018, presented by ETEL and designed by Superluna, is a space where collectors and members can enjoy a drink from the Perrier-Jouët bar, and relax in an atmosphere designed to mirror a domestic environment filled with pieces rich in Brazil’s contemporary themes and history. Curated with selected pieces from ETEL’s collection of contemporary design and re-editions of iconic modern Brazilian design, the entire Lounge structure is covered with textile panels, creating a frame for an intimate space.
François Halard, renowned interior and architectural photographer and this year’s curator of Design at Large, created a graphic identity specially for Design Miami/ Basel that explores the concept of time, encouraging visitors to shift their focus to design’s defining details, materials, and expressions. His blurred and distorted photographs, seen throughout Design Miami Basel’s branding, create ethereal images that appear to be on the verge of focusing. These images evoke a sense of slowing down, encouraging fairgoers to unplug from their bustling everyday lives, step away from social media addictions, and shift their perspective of time, immersing themselves fully in their first-hand experience of the fair.
OFFICIAL FURNITURE SPONSORS
Artek and Vitra return to Design Miami/ Basel this edition and will be providing the furniture for the Design Talks Theater, Media Lounge as well as Nook Café. Attendees can expect to see furniture designed by some of today’s leading designers including Konstantin Grcic’s Stool-Tool (Vitra) at our Design Talks Theater and classics of modern design by Alvar Aalto and Ilmari Tapiovaara (Artek) at our media lounge.

Like every year I am visiting the Design Miami Basel show which takes place in hall 1, right next to the Art Basel venue. There were so many nice things to show you and I have tried my best to give you a glimpse of what I saw this year.
About Design Miami Basel 2017
Design Miami/ is the global forum for design. Each fair brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators, and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Occurring alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami each December and Basel, Switzerland, each June, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing, and creating collectible design. For more information, please visit designmiami.com.
Scholten & Baijings
The Dutch design duo Scholten & Baijings, Japanese Architect Sano Fumihiko, and kimono designer Takahashi Hiroko have teamed up to celebrate four hundred years of Arita porcelain and will present a new Arita collection of twenty-seven pieces of tableware. To produce these dishes, the team applied abstract patterns of traditional motifs, studied Arita’s historical collections, sifted through museums and the archives of the Hataman Touen pottery and, in the process, rediscovered and brought back to life long-forgotten techniques.
Design at Large
Design Miami Basel 2017 has tapped the visionary mind of notable American fashion designer Thom Browne to bring to life the 2017 Design at Large installation. This is the first time a fashion designer will conceive the ambitious, large-scale presentation. Known for his conceptual installations, Browne will exhibit a vast grid of the most important desks from the last one hundred years, including statement pieces from masters such as Jean Prouvé and Ron Arad, beside the set installation from his Fall / Winter 2014 Men’s Runway Show. Alongside the centennial of significant desks in design history, the exhibition will be animated by a choreographed performance conceived specifically for Design at Large focusing on young design students and their creative interactions with the installation. This performance will mark the current shifts in traditional work styles, question the desk typology, and reconsider today’s adapted styles of working.
Political Responses in Design
Reflections of the politics of our times can often be found in design objects and architecture. Galerie Patrick Seguin presents a demountable 6 x 9–meter Jean Prouvé house from 1944, which was conceived for easy assemblage and to house large families in response to eastern France suffering great damages from the Second World War. The architecture collective BBPR, formed in 1932 by Gianluigi Banfi, Lodovico Barbiano di Belgiojoso, Enrico Peressutti, and Ernesto Nathan Rogers, initially adhered to Fascism, but soon became part of the resistance––Banfi and Di Belgiojoso were imprisoned at the Mathausen concentration camp where Banfi died, and Rogers, being of Jewish descent, was exiled from Italy to Switzerland. Their works are shown at Nilufar Gallery, Galleria Rossella Colombari, Casati Gallery, and Gate 5.

BILDRAUSCH – FILMFESTIVAL 2017 / BASEL
The seventh edition of the festival is once again devoted to the seventh art form. The “festival of festivals” brings discoveries to Basel, which have caused a stir thanks to their idiosyncratic film language and uncompromising stories.
An international competition that explores the boundaries of cinema and genres, transcends them, and ventures into unknown territories. A tribute to Terence Davies, this master of passion that glows under a stylised surface: very British indeed!
A retrospective of an icon of Portuguese cinema: Teresa Villaverde unites a subtle as well as wild female perspective with great art. Bildrausch Film Festival 2017 takes a bow before Tony Conrad and Bill Viola with two special programmes, invites you to experience the apocalypse in abridged form, or to unleash your inner dubbing voice at the Film Karaoke or your inner table football player in cinema scope format.
At the end of June, our cinema of powerful images will transfix audiences and filmmakers at the festival open-air venue on Theaterplatz and in the Stadtkino and kult.kino atelier cinemas.
Thirteen films from nine countries celebrate their Swiss premieres together with their makers,
and boldly defy narrative norms at Bilrausch Filmfestival 2017. The filmmakers Terence Davies from the United Kingdom, Lissette Orozco from Chile, Nicolas Wackerbarth from Germany, Andreas Lust from Germany, Teresa Villaverde from Portugal, Kogonada from the United States, Everardo Gonzales from Mexico, Romuald Karmakar from Germany, Julian Radlmaier from Germany, Kim Ki-Duk from South Korea, Bruno Ganz from Switzerland and Monika Willi from Austria will personally present their works in Basel. Three top-class exponents of the international film scene – Lav Diaz, Ilsa Hughan and Monika Willi – will decide who goes home with the Bildrausch Ring of Film Art.
Special Programme at the Bildrausch Filmfestival 2017:
Terence Davies – Past and Passion. Memories of post-war Liverpool in the 1950s and stunningly beautiful and passionate literary adaptations: Terence Davies reveals the emotions of his characters and confronts despair, loneliness and the hardships of life with grace. Bildrausch is honouring the great British director with a tribute – at times quiet and sad, at times sober and autobiographical, but always tender and masterful.
Special Programme at the Bildrausch Filmfestival 2017:
Teresa Villaverde – Fragile Punk. For Teresa Villaverde, the cinema is a place of provocation, irritation, even rebellion. Her visually powerful, unconventional and very feminine narrative, her daring mise-en- scène and the balancing act between observation and poetry, which she commands like no-one else, have been challenging us for more than 25 years. Bildrausch invites you to a tightrope walk with the Portuguese director, who is considered one of the most precious secrets of auteur cinema.
Special Programme at the Bildrausch Filmfestival 2017:
Tony Conrad was a giant, both in the literal and figurative sense. The avant-gardist not only wrote music history, but repeatedly turned current paradigms on their head as an experimental filmmaker and as a performance and video artist. Bildrausch is taking a look at the American crossover artist from different perspectives with a video lecture by Tabea Lurk, film screenings and a tribute concert by Lary7.
Special Programme at the Bildrausch Filmfestival 2017:
Bill Viola: the Road to St. Paul and Short Film Programme. For 12 years, Gerald Fox accompanied the American video artist Bill Viola and his wife and artistic partner in crime Kira Perron with his 16mm camera; 12 years, during which the couple struggled with the design and making of the commissioned works “Martyrs” and “Mary” which were to be permanently installed in St. Paul Cathedral. Bildrausch presents the Swiss premiere of the documentary Bill Viola: The Road to St. Paul by Gerald Fox as a Sunday matinée screening in collaboration with the art film festival LE FIFA (Festival International du Film sur l’Art) in Montreal, the worlds largest film festival in the field of art films. After the screening, where Gerald Fox will be present, you will have the opportunity to satisfy your longing for Bill Viola’s works by seeing The Passing (1991) and The Reflecting Pool (1977-1979). Introduction to the Short Film Programme: Jasmin Sumpf, researcher at Schaulager Basel.
Supporting Programme at the Bildrausch Filmfestival 2017
BAR AND GRILL AT STADTKINO BASEL
The Festival Centre at the Stadtkino Basel opens half an hour before the first screening and
remains open until 2am (on Friday and Saturday until 4am). The charming cinema bar, the
cosy Piazza in front of the cinema and the festival lounge invite you to linger and discuss what
you’ve seen. And we make sure your physical well-being is catered for too: Indian specialities,
small snacks and sandwiches are available all day at the bar, and in the evening the legendary sausages of Pippo will sizzle on the grill.
Bildrausch, together with Filmbulletin, is asking what cinema does to us. For once, this does
not mean: “How did you direct the film?”, but “Everyone is an expert”. Tereza Fischer talks to
a public figure about his or her impressions after the film screening of Big Big World by Reha
Have you always wanted to slip into the skin of your favourite film hero? Now you have the
perfect opportunity: after last year’s major success, Bildrausch and Theater Basel once again invite you to a karaoke night of the cinematic kind. For information and registration, please
contact filmkaraoke @ bildrausch-basel.ch
IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD… AS YOU CHOSE IT!
Flaming infernos, air disasters, devastating plagues – reduced to a few minutes. In the 1970s
and 1980s, impatient viewers purchased Viewers Digest versions of major cinema hits on Super-8. The Bildrausch Salon invites you to an on-demand programme of bizarre works
about the apocalypse.
BEAT THE ARTIST
The table football tournament on the Piazza in front of the Stadtkino invites journalists, jury members and filmmakers to challenge each others sporting abilities. Five festival visitors will have the opportunity to obtain a wild card to the tournament.

Niyi Olagunju b. 1981, Sagamu, Nigeria Lives & works in London
Adeniyi ‘Niyi’ Olagunju holds a National Diploma in General Art from Yaba College of Technology, Lagos and a BA Fine Arts (Hons) degree from St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford, UK with concentrations in Art History, Studio Art and Visual Theory. He was one of the privileged few to benefit from the Oxford University Scholarship between 2006 – 2009. He then went on to Texas Christian University (“TCU”) in Fort Worth, Texas, USA where he obtained a MA Fine Arts with specialisation in Sculpture.
Prior to his degree in Oxford, Niyi served with the British Army from 2002-2006, with service postings in Basra, Iraq & Northern Ireland. A practicing studio artist with exhibitions accross three continents, from 2011 to late 2015, he served as a Special Assistant to the Honourable Minister of State, FCT, Nigeria where he was tasked with the responsibility of formulating and implementing Social Development initiatives to strengthen the FCT’s Arts & Culture commitment.
TAFETA SCOPE BASEL 2017
I was at SCOPE art fair in Basel and saw Niyi’s artwork EKPIRI inside the TAFETA gallery booth and had to know more about it. I am so happy that I can share his story and work with you.
“the first time I saw ekpiri seeds was during the Ofala festival in Onitsha. Dancers and performers would use them as percussion instruments during the annual celebrations.
I’ve always loved the art of joining one thing to another or of creating something new from objects that had a different function or purpose. The vision for my latest series is to take something small—the ekpiri seed pods —and create a piece that’s over 8 feet tall. It’s an ongoing investigation into the connection between culture and visual art. How Igbo traditional musical instruments fit into my artistic conversation.”

The Meeting of Light and Earthly Gravitations and other works
by Senam Okudzeto
I had the pleasure to see Senams latest works and want to share it with all of you. Most of the pieces are very very fragile and delicate. She is showing during Art Basel on SATURDAY between 12 and 5 pm at Projektraum Bollag at Gärtnerstrasse 50 4057 Basel. Otherwise she is showing by appointment only. In case you want to see her work, and can not come on Saturday, please email her to senam.info (@) gmail.com
Senam Okudzeto works with a wide range of media, including social sculpture, installation, painting, film, and text in her methodological “Afro-Dada” practice; an ongoing exploration of material culture which presents unexpected juxtapositions of objects and images in the context of West Africa’s modernist narratives and her fluid identity as an African who is of European of U.S. American descent.
The Meeting of Light and Earthly Gravitations
The Meeting of Light and Earthly Gravitations (2016–2017), is to be read as a complex and articulate system relating specifically to the artist’s experience of being in Rome for a year-long fellowship at the American Academy. This work is a part of her ongoing “Afro-Dada Glossolalia” project, and contemplates the question of what might be left of the soul of a being, and also of an object, as it travels through time, space and changing cultural contexts
The piece contains a number of references, ranging from the paintings of Caravaggio through to early Byzantine readings of crystal and the preponderance of “carciofi” in everyday Roman life. The video component depicts the annual Pentecost service at the Pantheon church in Rome, which ends with the congregation being showered in rose petals, which are scattered through the iconic oculus of the building. The petals metaphorically reference the “gifts of spirit”- speaking in tongues that Pentecost celebrates, but the ceremony’s origins predate Christianity to early pagan Rosalia festivals.
Okudzeto’s work attempts a powerful mapping system; derived from the idea that memory, time, space and distance could be described through objects as a series of encounters with events. This work takes its departure point from an earlier multi-media installation; Portes-Oranges, (2003-2007) and is a re-working of a previous installation of The Meeting of Light and Earthly Gravitations (2016), which was shown at the American Academy in Rome at the exhibition Cinque Mostre (2016).
The Meeting of Light and Earthly Gravitations
Senam Okudzeto (b. 1972, Chicago) lives and works between Basel, London and Accra. Okudzeto has a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (1995), and a Masters degree in Painting from the Royal College of Art, London, (1997).

VOLTA 13 // AESOP & galleryLOG
Finally the best week of Basel has arrived. The Art Basel week with VOLTA, SCOPE, LISTE, DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and many other side shows. My first blog post about this years Art week is dedicated to VOLTA 13 and their partners AESOP and galleryLOG. Lets start with the AESOP installation by Irena Eden & Stjin Lernout.
German-Belgian artist duo Irena Eden & Stijn Lernout have created a site-specific installation at Aesop’s Spalenberg boutique in Basel, a diaphanous intervention that plays off the building’s architecture in bold, space-defining color and pattern. Their project compliments Eden and Lernout’s solo booth with Krupic Kersting Galerie | Kuk (Cologne) at VOLTA13, which further defines their research into social relationships and cultural cartography via geometric abstraction.
VOLTA 13 // AESOP & galleryLOG
For VOLTA13, GalleryLOG has selected Jane Benson (exhibiting with LMAKgallery, New York), Dennis Dawson (exhibiting with frosch&portmann, New York), Erika Harrsch (exhibiting with RoFa Projects, Potomac), and Rachel Owens (exhibiting with ZieherSmith, New York).
Wielding an interdisciplinary and research-based approach, Jane Benson (presented by LMAKgallery, New York) develops multilayered narratives that deftly transform and relate back to their experimental source material. Her recent series Song for Sebald collaged author W.G. Sebald’s novel The Rings of Saturn to create, as noted in a review by ARTnews, “music between the words.”
Dennis Dawson reuses and rearranges media unearthed from consumer catalogues and other magazines, particularly loose pages that bear some prior purpose. By using material already existing materials, Dawson contributes to a dialogue of shared experience and interconnection.
Butterflies are a recurring theme for Erika Harrsch (presented by RoFa Projects, Potomac), as their distinctive shapes and flock patterns become the basis for exploring migration, sexual identity, immigration reform, and physical boundaries.
Consumer culture and environmental concerns imbue the shattered glass and resin sculptures by Rachel Owens (presented by ZieherSmith, New York). As the centerpiece for her recent solo exhibition at the gallery, Owens cast from the Alley Pond Giant, a 130-foot-tall tulip poplar tree in Queens, New York, and considered the tallest and oldest living organism in the city.
I hope that you will find time to check out this years VOLTA show at Markthalle Basel. I will be there today and am sure that I will see lots of nice things for the blog. stay tunded for more. X

HUBLOT at BASELWORLD 2017
THE BIG BANG UNICO SAPPHIRE
While coloured synthetic sapphires have been in existence since 1902, when they were invented by the French chemist Auguste Victor Louis Verneuil, melting sapphire is a complex and unpredictable process. Because its crystallisation process is unstable, it is difficult to obtain similarly coloured sapphires, even if they are produced simultaneously. Furthermore, bubbles and cracks can appear in the material, making the end result unsuitable for producing Big Bang cases.
But the main challenge is in the size. Thus far, no coloured sapphires exceeding 2 kg have been produced. However, Hublot has now gone beyond this threshold. By pushing the limits of engineering and chemistry, it has developed a sophisticated and costly process that has resulted in the successful production of a large, transparent sapphire of perfectly uniform colour.
Hublot heats aluminium oxide (Al2O3) — the raw material for sapphire — with a transition metal, chromium (Cr), at a temperature of between 2000 and 2050 degrees Celsius. The result is a coloured sapphire that retains all the original properties of a material which is ultra-scratch resistant, completely transparent and among the hardest in existence. The innovation extends to the colour — the first blue sapphire in the history of watchmaking.
THE CLASSIC FUSION ITALIA INDEPENDENT COLLECTION
“We are very proud to be able to continue this partnership with Italia Independent and Lapo Elkann, whose creativity and character never cease to surprise us. This new project was an extraordinary experience for us: putting Hublot’s capacity for technical innovation and willingness to experiment to the service of the House of Rubinacci—a monument to Italian elegance—and the incomparable style of Lapo Elkann. The Classic Fusion Italia Independent truly represents the fusion of three forms of expertise.” Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot
BIG BANG BRODERIE SUGAR SKULL FLUO
The Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull Fluo is once again revisiting traditional materials in an original, modern way. This time with Bischoff embroidery from St Gallen. This ancestral craft has travelled across the globe and is entrenched within the world of fashion.
With its cutting-edge innovation, performance and creativity, internationally renowned Swiss brand Bischoff is a key industry figure. In its workshops in St Gallen, near Zurich, Bischoff’s master artisans created specially commissioned fluorescent embroidery on silk organza. Delicately embroidered with floral arabesque motifs and subtly revealing the ‘skull’ design that will adorn the dial.
TAGHEUER AT BASELWORLD 2017
G HEUER CARRERA HEUER-01 43 MM
Unveiled in 2015, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 opened the doors to a new market. A 45 mm Skeleton Manufacture Chronograph with a contemporary sports design, and coming in at under 5000 CHF, it redefined the notion of value for money.
This year, the famous proprietary chronograph is being unveiled with a slightly smaller diameter of 43 mm, in a choice of three versions: intense black, deep navy blue and an elegant cognac brown.
After more than five years of continuous improvement and optimisation, it now offers a very high level of quality, while its production costs have been carefully managed to make it one of the very few 100% Manufacture Chronographs available for less than 5000 CHF.
TAG HEUER CARRERA LADY 2017
The Carrera collection is TAG Heuer’s flagship collection. Launched by Jack Heuer in 1964 as a chronograph, it is now available in a range of diameters with many different functions for both men and women.
This year, thanks to a new development, the case features a different construction. It is no longer punched from a block in the traditional TAG Heuer way – it is now modular and formed of 9 different pieces (case back, case middle, bezel, lugs and strap end-pieces), which paves the way for myriad possible combinations of almost endless materials, colours, treatments and finishes.
Link. A design that dates back to 1987. Its defining feature is the immediately recognisable bracelet, boasting the signature S-shaped links. It is both an iconic design and a standard bearer in terms of ergonomics and wearer comfort. Each link is rounded on the top, bottom and sides for an exceptionally smooth feel on the wrist.
In steel, with an elegant diameter of 32 mm, the new Link Lady now features a bracelet which is fully integrated into the case, whose horns have been removed. The bracelet still has a curved profile, and the finishes are even more sophisticated: the entire contour of the S radiates a highly polished shine, while the upper surface of each link is fully brushed.
I had such a great time at BASEL WORLD 2017 and wanna thank everyone who invited me and took their time to show me their newest collection. See you next year, so long! X
The term “hypnosis” comes from the ancient Greek word ὕπνος hypnos, “sleep”, and the suffix -ωσις -osis, or from ὑπνόω hypnoō, “put to sleep” (stem of aorist hypnōs-) and the suffix -is. Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. The term may also refer to an art, skill, or act of inducing hypnosis.
Theories explaining what occurs during hypnosis fall into two groups. Altered state theories see hypnosis as an altered state of mind or trance, marked by a level of awareness different from the ordinary conscious state. In contrast, nonstate theories see hypnosis as a form of imaginative role enactment. During hypnosis, a person is said to have heightened focus and concentration. The person can concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory, while blocking out sources of distraction. Hypnotised subjects are said to show an increased response to suggestions.
Hypnosis is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction involving a series of preliminary instructions and suggestion. The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as “hypnotherapy”, while its use as a form of entertainment for an audience is known as “stage hypnosis”. Stage hypnosis is often performed by mentalists practicing the art form of mentalism.
That’s what I have found via wikipedia.org https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
I guess we all have heard about hypnosis and have seen it in films or like described in the last paragraph on stage to entertain audience. A lot of people see it as something dark or something that is being used to manipulate people and that is why I want to share my very personal experience with hypnosis with all of you.
There are many reasons to get involved with hypnosis, be it to loose weight, get rid of stage freight or other phobias or the general need to relax ones body and mind. In my case I was very interested in the last mentioned one. A deep form of relaxation is exactly what I needed and got from my hypnosis experience.
I went in and had very little expectations about what is going to happen and only had the sketchy visuals from the movies or cartoons where people stare on to black and white rotating patterns that make them dizzy and fall asleep. So I had no idea what to expect and I think that was a very good thing.
So when I had my appointment I first had a very nice chat with Nadia and we were talking about my over all well being, what is present in my life and what I want from my hypnosis session. As I have already told you my goal was to relax my body and mind deeply. We were ready to start and that meant that I had to lay down on her bed and was covered with blankets. In the state of hypnosis the body cools down and therefor it is very important to keep yourself warm and comfortable.
She started to play relaxing music and took me on a visual journey that left all my thoughts and worries behind and that let me focus on only what she was saying. That was a life changing experience and somehow it felt more like a form of meditation. Nadia’s soothing voice has brought me to a deep state of relaxation. It was unbelievable that I was on one side very aware of what was happening, meaning I was still listening to her voice and what she was saying but on the other hand I was far far away almost floating on clouds and being close to dreaming and dozing off.
The wonderful thing for me was that I lost the feeling of time, I had no idea for how long I was laying there, if it were 20 minutes or one and a half hours. This felt so good. The same way you are being led into hypnosis you are also brought out of it, very conscious. It feels good to still lay down with open eyes for a couple of minutes after being released from the state of hypnosis.
I have felt so light and wonderful after my hypnosis session. What a wonderful experience with such a huge benefit for my body and mind. I really want to go back to that place where Nadia took me, that place where I was as light as a feather, very relaxed and calm. When ever I have a stressful day I try to take myself back to that place. Something that is not very easy to do and does not always work.
Now that I have dropped the word meditation I also want to share with you the definition I have found via wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content, or as an end in itself.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity, and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentration meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity.
The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts. Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease many health concerns, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. It may be done sitting, or in an active way—for instance, Buddhist monks involve awareness in their day-to-day activities as a form of mind-training. Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of that training.
Meditation may involve generating an emotional state for the purpose of analyzing that state—such as anger, hatred, etc.—or cultivating a particular mental response to various phenomena, such as compassion. The term “meditation” can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state.
Meditation may also involve repeating a mantra and closing the eyes. The mantra is chosen based on its suitability to the individual meditator. Meditation has a calming effect and directs awareness inward until pure awareness is achieved, described as “being awake inside without being aware of anything except awareness itself.” In brief, there are dozens of specific styles of meditation practice, and many different types of activity commonly referred to as meditative practices.
