Analivia Cordeiro, Cambiantes, 1976
Analivia Cordeiro. From Body to Code
Jan 28 – Apr 23, 2023
ZKM | Center for Art and Media
Karlsruhe, Germany

A pioneer of video and computer art, Analivia Cordeiro has been exploring the relationships between the body, movement, visual and audiovisual art, and media art since the early 1970s.

Her seminal 1973 work “M 3×3” is considered the first video artwork to come out of South America and internationally one of the first dance choreographies created specifically for video, using computer image processing to notate the dance movements. The retrospective Analivia Cordeiro: From Body to Code at the ZKM presents for the first time an overview of the complete oeuvre of the artist, choreographer, and architect, as well as enabling her historical video performances and computer dances of the 1970s and 1980s to enter into dialogue with a selection of her works from 1990 to the present.

Cordeiro’s works open up numerous perspectives for experiencing body movements. The exhibition therefore explicitly invites visitors to reexperience their own physical dances in space via the interactive installations and a dance motion capture app developed by the artist. The artist’s principle becomes clear in the exhibition: “No matter what age, no matter how much dance experience, everyone can learn through movement.”

The exhibition is part of the program series Female Perspectives dedicated to female positions in Media Art. The artists are Soun-Gui Kim, Marijke van Warmerdam, Analivia Cordeiro and Ulrike Rosenbach.

    “I didn’t see a major difference between a poem, a sculpture, a film, or a dance,” Joan Jonas has said. For more than five decades, Jonas’s multidisciplinary work has bridged and redefined boundaries between performance, video, drawing, sculpture, and installation.

  • Michela de Mattei & Toby Christian: Flash_Looking
    May 17 – Jul 5, 2024
    Belmacz
    London, UK

    The phrase ‘flash-looking’ suggests something slick and shiny, a high-gloss finish, a smooth way of operating. As a synchronising of parts, the phrase also suggests a quick glance, a glimpse, something seen out of the of corner of one’s eye: “What’s that”. Flash_Looking, featuring Toby Christian and Michela de Mattei, works through these connotations and more. Brought in dialogue, Toby and Michela’s artworks speak with and across each other with an anachronistic elegance (more…)

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
