Dream Machines
Jun 19 – Oct 30, 2023
Deste Foundation
Hydra Island, Greece

Dream Machines, curated by Daniel Birnbaum and Massimiliano Gioni, is a small exhibition that explores the impact of technology on human imagination. The emergence of a new medium always gives rise to new possibilities for art, and each epoch has its key artists in whose creations a novel encounter between technology and creativity crystalize. Dream Machines presents a number of momentous works, from Ulf Linde’s reinterpretation of Marcel Duchamp’s Coffee Mill (1911) – described by André Breton as an infernal machine – to a selection of recent experiments exploring virtual spheres. Installed in the cavernous spaces of the Slaughterhouse in Hydra and in its surroundings, this boîte-en-valise of an exhibition becomes itself a bachelor machine, with works caught in an endless mechanic ballet.

Combining loans from the Dakis Joannou Collection with contributions by several artists, the exhibition features works by Marcel Duchamp, Fischli & Weiss, H.R. Giger, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Brion Gysin, Mire Lee, Ulf Linde, Henrik Olesen, Philippe Parreno, Seth Price, William Reich, Pipilotti Rist, Pamela Rosenkranz, Mika Rottenberg, Sturtevant, Andro Wekua, Ulla Wiggen, and many others.

    Public housing has recently been portrayed as a carrier of good neighbourhood that is vanishing in our society and the public has romanticised its image. However, the public has neglected the many real problems faced by people living in these flats: low income, jobless, disability, family problems, new migrants, ageing population and so on. Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)

    Sapieha Palace
    Vilnius, Lithuania

    The inaugural exhibition of the Sapieha Palace seeks to unfold the spirit and history of the palace itself, as well as the diverse narratives surrounding its past. The works on displays and their arrangement act as a soft, transparent layer placed over the palace spaces, having been painted and repainted multiple times. The spatial and conceptual interaction thus reveals the previous and ongoing influence of a multitude of forces. (more…)

    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline. As this part of Southern California quickly becomes the backbone of America’s road-based supply chain, it simultaneously introduces many repercussions to the daily lives of communities that call the Inland Empire home.
