Metahaven
Artist Collective / Multimedia

Metahaven’s work (Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden) encompasses the practices of filmmaking, writing, design, and installation, and is united conceptually by interests in poetry, storytelling, digital superstructures, and propaganda. Their moving image works manifest as immersive installations, and share an aesthetic logic with the collective’s design work in an attention to surface, texture, and the intelligent simplification of complex logics and visual forms. Their work is frequently exhibited and published throughout the world.

  • June Clark: Witness
    May 3 – Aug 11, 2024
    The Power Plant
    Toronto, Canada
    June Clark: Witness is the first survey in Canada of the Toronto-based artist June Clark, who, since the late 1960s, has developed a unique and groundbreaking practice spanning photo-based work, text, collage, installation, and sculptural assemblages.

    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia
    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.

Wherever Your Mother’s Shadow Falls is an ode to maternal relationships, an introspection of consciousness and a slow contemplation of self-acceptance. (more…)
  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Publication
    Witty Books
    International
    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
