METAPHYSICS OF CORE MATTER | IMAGO LISBOA PHOTO FESTIVAL | SOCIEDADE NACIONAL DE BELAS ARTES

Lisbon | September- October 2022

"The IMAGO LISBOA Photo Festival is a landmark event in the national and international photography panorama.
 

In 2022 in this 4th edition, Disturbances are the concept of aggregation of the festival.
 

The current society has lived, cyclically, disturbing moments of different intensities and types. Of course, the current pandemic was probably the repeal of the biggest post-World War II disturbance. Its dimension had a globality never before existing, revealing many of the weaknesses of political and economic systems, but also revealing the capacity of the international scientific community to respond. But in addition to this pandemic, there are many other disturbances facing the planet. Pollution and recurrent ecological disasters have been on the agenda of several summits; social and domestic violence have made several headlines; mental and physical disorders have increased; migrations resulting from flight from wars and shortages of livelihoods; financial scandals, there are many examples of possible approach, study and reflection. ..."

Each artist has donated an artwork for sale as an open edition print. I contribute with my photograph ERECT REJECT from 2021, shot in the spaces of Recom Art Berlin.

DOUBLE TROUBLE | GALERIE MANSART

PARIS | DECEMBER - March 2020

An exhibition about the mandatory duality of our existence, the need to focus and act from our individual standpoint in the here and the now, yet also be present and dispersed and generous in and with our surrounding all the while looking towards future.

 

It is an exhibition about being (required to be) present in multiple places or circumstances at the same time. About the need to wear different hats, or shoes, or whatever clothing item you prefer. It is an exhibition about both: presence and projection, the dichotomy of human existence, the need to under-and-over-estimate ourselves on a constant basis.

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE | MARAIS PARIS

PARIS | SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER 2020

Creative immersion into the French metropole. 

Working on temporary sculptures: "This falling away from the things we desire will be staged, piled up, crowned by me. It is the fiction of a rising material, but it also shows its transience and the rational hubris of its inventor. My work as an artist is a temporary arrangement of a chaotic environmental condition and a joke with presentation forms in the context of art exhibitions, of the white cube and the pedestal culture, so to say of what needs to be viewed in a concentrated and contemplative sideline. A subtle play with the assumptions regarding myth and progress, practical solutions and their ecological downsides."

WILDGEHEGE

WIESBADEN | FEBRUARY 2020

Exhibition

Christine Straszewski und Silja Yvette 

 

Opening: 29th February 2020  | 6 p.m.

Duration: 1st March - 10th April 2020

Ein WILDGEHEGE ist ein KÜNSTLICH geschaffener Freiraum, der dazu dient, den ursprünglichen, unangepassten Teil der ART zu schützen. Dort kann sich dieser Teil entwickeln und gedeihen, genährt und getragen vom Gesamtorganismus, um damit die Spezies insgesamt überlebensfähig zu erhalten. Dabei fungiert Kunst als Spiegel, als Ventil und nicht zuletzt als Netz der Gesellschaft. Ein Raum und Labor, in dem einiges gefühlt, gedacht und geäußert werden kann, wo Narrenfreiheit herrscht, um neue Synapsenverbindungen zu schaffen, um Geist und Seele Flügel zu verleihen, um noch nie Gedachtes zu erdenken und noch nie Geschaffenes zu erschaffen.

 

Das Wilde, das Ungebremste in der Mythologie und im Märchen korrespondiert mit dem Tierischen, dem Wald, der Wildnis. Bereiche aus Traum, Phantasie und dem kollektiven Unbewussten zeigen Zügelloses, Formloses, Unkultiviertes, das unter Kontrolle zu bringen und zu sublimieren ist. Der Basilisk beispielsweise gilt in der Alchemie als Stein der Weisen – und wer sucht nicht nach ihm?

 

Der Titel der Ausstellung WILDGEHEGE ist zugleich ein Oxymoron: das Wilde mit Freiraum einhegen. Doch was geschieht, wenn das gehegte Wilde ausgewildert wird? Das wird in der Gesamtinstallation der Konzeptkünstlerinnen Silja Yvette und Christine Straszewski erfahrbar. Erweitert durch Verspiegelung, Bespiegelung und paraboler Spiegelung verschwimmen die Grenzen zwischen Jäger und Gejagtem. Hier gerät jedoch nicht das Kunstsystem ins Visier, sondern sein Pendant: der Eindringling, die Hybridisierung und der Synkretismus. Bezugssysteme unterschiedlicher Ebenen werden miteinander verknüpft. In der Rauminstallation trifft Formendes auf Geformtes, auf Verformtes, ob Naturkreatur oder Kunstagentur. Wesen mit ungleichen Augen beobachten und nehmen Blickkontakt auf. Malerei, Fotografie, Plastik und Konzept bilden einen Spannungsbogen, in dem die Betrachter*innen Zugang zu Mysterium und universellen Erfahrungen haben.

 

Die Ausstellung WILDGEHEGE ist der Auftakt der Themenreihe "Selbstreferenzialität in der Bildenden Kunst", die in der Galerie RubrechtContemporary in Wiesbaden ab Februar 2020 zu sehen sein wird. Die Konzeptkünstlerinnen Silja Yvette und Christine Straszewski sind eingeladen, das Kunstsystem nicht nur zu hinterfragen, vielmehr werden sie die Kunst als gesellschaftssprengendes Element, als Störfaktor des Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftssystems in den Mittelpunkt stellen. Mit scharfem Geschütz gehen sie auf die Jagd und gehen bei dieser Ausstellung nicht zum ersten Mal eine künstlerische Symbiose ein: DRAG ON FLOW (Peking), HIGGSTEDDY (Wiesbaden), KLEIDET MICH IN SEIDE (Bonn) und HAI:P (Wiesbaden) sind vielversprechende Ausstellungstitel, bei denen die beiden ihre Seelenverwandtschaft bereits erprobten.

COLLECTIVE CREATURES | A dialogue of dichotomous hybrids

BOOK RELEASE MAY 2019 @ HATJE CANTZ VERLAG

In Collective Creatures, Silja Yvette draws attention to artificial and natural materials, as well as to the effects of mass and energy in space and time. In her photographs objects and places—from caves and abandoned buildings, to quarries, shop windows, found pieces, volcanos, and atomic events—become “collective creatures,” which make it possible to understand forces that are difficult to visualize, such as transformation, expansion, and omnipresence. There is something inherently mythical about these things that opposes the calculability desired by humans. With her strongly compositional images freed from their cultural context, Silja Yvette’s artistic process takes aim at associative contexts. Critically, and with sensitivity, she shows their relationship to the subtle permeation of microparticles and radiation on the one hand, and to the massive upheaval of the earth’s materials perpetrated by human-led corporations and human inventions.

SEASON OF ADMIN @ Kerber Verlag

RELEASE SEPTEMBER 2017

Subtle, uncanny and at the same time perceptive – the photographs of Silja Yvette »evoke associations ranging from ironic reflection to elegiac allusion, from the fragility of being to a certain longing for the elementary« (Annekathrin Müller, Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation). At the origin of »Season of Admin« is an unease regarding any socially organised and administered relationship to nature and things. The images deal with issues related to the self-description of a subject that considers itself autonomous and on the other hand with the agency of things, assuming an understanding of hybrid forms of actions. 

 

The new publication contains remarkable full size photographic tableaus and an artist book like rich choice of different papers.

VERONIKA BURGER, JANA HARTMANN, BERND METZ, ANSELM SCHENKLUHN,

SARAH SCHODERER, CHRISTINE STRASZEWSKI, SILJA YVETTE

 

Junge, zeitgenössische KünstlerInnen aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum zeigen eine besondere Ausstellung in der Kunst- und Kulturhalle Fabrik45 im Bonner Macke Viertel. Kleidet mich in Seide bildet eine ironische Klammer um die Herausforderungen des künstlerischen Schaffens, von Zweifel bis Behauptung. Die Schau protegiert aufstrebende bildende KünstlerInnen, die bereits eine ausgeprägte künstlerische Sprache entwickelt haben, im Sinne einer großräumigen und selbstbestimmten Präsentation. Ob Malerei, Fotografie, Skulptur, Installation oder Performance, die gezeigten Arbeiten jonglieren mit Mediengrenzen und bewegen sich im Feld der Interdisziplinarität.

 

Ein Ausstellungsprojekt von Silja Yvette mit Unterstützung von Natascia Cuschié und Cristof Domrowe.
