Beyond Facebook’s Linearity in Time & Space

January 7th to February 7th 2014 @ Gallery Online

Beyond Facebook’s Linearity in Time & Space is an original visual performance which examines the limits of the social network site’s interface and deconstructs the temporal space of the website. Facebook is diverted and used both as media and medium for dissemination and exposure, a space for the creation and existence of artwork. This aesthetic research consists of a series of screenshots (pictures and videos), scrolling timelines, and grids of multiple pictures. Plastic material such as Facebook’s codes and a series of progressive visual feedbacks are appropriated. All of these make breaking down the timeline imposed by Facebook possible.

« Thomas Cheneseau is a French artistic researcher with a passion for abstraction. He considers social media as both his found object and his blank canvas. His works on Facebook are an initiative that consists solely of art that he created through his page. Videos, images and code already existing on Facebook, as well as screenshots taken from timelines, are transformed into collages and entirely new imagery. The visual material is then reloaded to Facebook, directly into a new space created for it. Existing restraints in the interface, such as size and functions, are defied by the artist in order to augment the visual aspect of his art. Ultimately, the goal is to creatively counter the linearity of Facebook’s timeline in both time and space. »

Lorsque qu’ARTE Creative propose à SPAMM la possibilité d’ouvrir le monde des médias numériques à une génération de spectateurs surfeurs et expérimentateurs des flux en constante mutation, Thomas Cheneseau, Jean Jacques Gay et Michaël Borras (AKA Systaime) imaginent le SuPer Art Modern Muséum en un SuPer Art Modern Movement.

Entre TV organique, web galerie, musée virtuel, collection éphémère mets en perspective l’art numérique et l’histoire de l’art à travers un projet qui explique, expose et analyse l’élan d’une génération de jeunes créateurs.

DATA DRAPE offre la direction curatoriale à Reynald Drouhin pour une exposition 1.2 qui dès ce mois d’Octobre propose sur les réseaux un regard original sur 15 œuvres internationales. Et comme la monstration de ces œuvres vivantes, virtuelles et interactives interpèle SPAMM depuis ses débuts, c’est tout naturellement que ce 22 octobre 2013, SPAMM, associé au Show Off et au Slider Lab,  propose, le temps d’une foire, un IRL de qui met en pratique cette nouvelle façon de voir, collectionner, exposer et surtout vivre les œuvres numériques.

happening and curation by Vasily Zaitsev

Online exhibition featuring Digital & Net.Art on the subject of Money & Error, put together by an anonymous curator “Vasily Zaitsev”:  “M0N3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US” proposes to establish connections, dialogues, and new insights into the contemporary art scene around the general topic of MONEY. Around 70 international artists selected with various aesthetic and conceptual approaches who work in fields such as Digital Art, Net.Art, New Media, Interactive Art, Multimedia, JavaScript, Glitch, Video, Online Performance, Animated GIF, and Digital Image.

The Call for the exhibition is produced as a “Happening 2.0″ in which we include the work of all participants (about 200 in total). Also we incorporated works by artists outside of the call, who previously had working about MONEY because we were thinking that these artists would improve the quality of the exhibition.

The theme of MONEY was chosen for its ubiquitous nature by an anonymous identity, a online curator who used the name of a famous Russian sniper of World War II: Vasily Zaitsev, a man that could not be seen and acted afar. M0N3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US” has a display format that promote aesthetic reception of the digital work ,to understand it as a fundamental part of the work. In this display format is highlighted each of the works as an artistic piece.

The exhibition “Cupcake” is a deployment at the size of the virtual world’s spirit, a meeting realized in the act of new artistic and digital practices, a new event where time zones do not exist any more, where the space of the screen is providence, an unveiling, an appearance of our modernity.

More than 50 artists joined together to create with similar curiosity an aesthetic truth which is given in itself.

For Cupcake, names do not have authority anymore, only the unity of contemporary allegorical research without borders, without physical territories that call us 24/7 to new customs, a fictitious game which is only anticipating the logical truth of its ideas.

A strange solidarity is born, a mutual translatability to bring to Spamm a “function” of the third millennium’s poetry, where the sublime expresses itself in the mind of the senses.

We suit no theory, no convention, for your pleasure !

Fach & Asendorf Gallery debuted online in 2011 with these words:

The Internet, it is everywhere. It is here, it is there and it is where you actually are. It is so huge that nobody ever could print it. It is so deep that no one ever would dive to its end. There is peace and war in it, love and hate and all between. Once you have traveled through it, you will never forget, and you will come back, asap.

Since then, Fach & Asendorf Gallery has served 24 online exhibitions of digital and net art to more than 28,000 unique visitors. To celebrate the beginning of their third season, Fach & Asendorf Gallery presents BEST OF, an enormous collection of unreleased and exclusive work by 83 artists from around the world spanning a broad range of formats including applications, videos, and animated GIFs. <b>BEST OF is a whole week of Internet on DVD.</b>

Quand les artistes s’emparent du réseau
Artists take over the network
MCD vous invite le jeudi 13 décembre 2012, à 19h, à la Gaîté Lyrique, PARIS pour venir découvrir son dernier numéro : MCD#69 < NET ART – WJ-SPOTS#2 >(Décembre/Janvier/Février 2012) – FR-UK.
Les artistes, critiques, chercheurs et commissaires artistiques, invités à participer à cette publication nous donnent des clés, des repères et des éclairages pour comprendre les différentes formes artistiques qui cohabitent sur la toile, dans ses interstices et ses périphéries. D’un point de vue artistique, les auteurs témoignent de ce qui s’est passé sur Internet ces deux dernières décennies et  ils expriment la façon dont ils ont perçu, vécu et traversé cette période. D’un point de vue social, politique et artistique, les participants nous expliquent : comment le réseau a changé leur rapport au monde, à l’espace et au temps, comment il a bouleversé leurs usages, leurs pratiques et leur manière de penser, comment il est devenu un espace de partage, d’échange et de création.
Dans une démarche prospective, ils imaginent les années qui viennent et se demandent si Internet sera toujours un territoire intéressant à explorer dans le futur, s’il sera toujours un terrain fertile pour produire des formes artistiques hybrides où le monde physique et le monde virtuel fusionnent, se frottent et se télescopent.
Les participants proposent aussi une sélection de sites Internet marquants et emblématiques à leurs yeux. Internet est devenu un espace de création et d’exposition incontournable, et cette publication est une invitation à découvrir des œuvres majeures en accès libre et gratuit sur le réseau.
Nous tenons à remercier particulièrement Anne Roquigny (Rédactrice en Chef invitée), tous les participants et partenaires de WJ-Spots, ainsi que le Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication et les annonceurs de MCD pour leur soutien à cette publication.
