Salon 63 | ‘Eros’ by Stasis

'Eros' by Stasi Galitzine (formely Galitzine Mackenzie) will hold their fifth exhibition project Salon 63 in April 2018. Fourteen artists will be paired up with different hair & beauty salons along the number 63 bus route. Each artist will collaborate with the salons to create site-specific works that aim to include and engage each salons’ clientele and local community. For a sneak peak before next year, Galitzine is participating in the artist/curator led Sluice Biennial. Salon 63 participant Freddy Tuppen has created a special salon space conducive to enabling social interactions and discussions often inherent in salon culture. Over the Biennial the salon will be a site for professional beauty treatments, performances and work from a selection of our Salon 63 participants. ‘

Eros’ by Stasis will be livestreamed from Salon 63 at 5.30pm Monday 2nd October.

“A trio of neon pink swimsuits seek answers to the perennial problems of love and loss. Caught in the melodrama of Dusty Springfield’s ‘You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me’, they crawl their way to enlightenment or something more mercurial. Space becomes meat market as the soundtrack moves to darker realms, dragging the swimsuits into sinister dances and ritualistic debasement. Exploring the line between coercion and abandonment, enticement and repulsion, it all spells trouble in the not-so-straightworld of Stasis’ making.”

    RCA / ARCHIVE / Olivier Richon and Victoria Walsh

    Soah Research presents:

    Liberté

    Deactivating Desire. Albert Serra’s latest film, Liberté with Alexander García Düttmann

    This is a dark tale of the Enlightenment, a formal costume drama where excess is the methodology for the exploration of desire, language and representation.

    The screening will be followed by a discussion with Olivier Richon.

    After growing up in Barcelona, Alexander García Düttmann studied in Frankfurt am Main with Alfred Schmidt and in Paris with Jacques Derrida. Since 1992, he has lived in San Francisco, New York, Melbourne, and London, and he has taught at Stanford University, The University of Essex, Monash University, New York University, Middlesex University, Goldsmiths College, and the Royal College of Art. He is currently Professor of Aesthetics and Art Theory at the University of the Arts, Berlin.

    In 2015, García Düttmann published “What Does Art Know? For an Aesthetics of Resistance” (Konstanz University Press). In this book, he claims that art is a form of thinking and that for this reason it does not produce knowledge. Alexander García Düttmann has translated some of Derrida’s works into German, and Benjamin’s essay on Julien Green into French. He has also “Theory and Practice”, an unpublished seminar by Jacques Derrida on Marx (Éditions Galilée 2017). What is Contemporary Art? On Political Ideology (Konstanz University Press) appeared in 2017, Love Machine. The Origin of the Work of Art (Konstanz University Press) in 2018.
