ARTPIL / Prescription .101
secretly wishing for rain

 

The sun shines high above
The sounds of laughter
The birds swoop down upon
The crosses of old grey churches
We say that we’re in love
While secretly wishing for rain
Sipping Coke and playing games
September’s here again
September’s here again…

     –David Sylvian / Ryuichi Sakamoto
September

 

Summer is now behind us, ended but not foregone. Welcome to the .101st edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

Subjects of Life

This selection encourages a reflection on the medium through questions of representation and the effects of the image on our perception of reality, notions of territory, and the represented subject. Artists include Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans, Martin Parr, among others. Photography from the Mudam Collection, closes today, September 22, 2019 / Mudam Luxembourg.

 

Gerhard Richter / Sechs Fotos 2.5.89 – 7.5.89

Twilight Zone

“It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition… This is the dimension of imagination.” Including Louise Bourgeois, Francesca Woodman, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Demand, Shilpa Gupta, and others. At Kunsten in Aalborg through January 12, 2020.

 

Ernst Haas

Visionary Color / Ernst Haas

Taken between 1952 and 1981, the photographs of Ernst Haas presented on display show an ambiguity bordering on the abstract, shot through with superimpositions, off-centered framing and blurriness. On view at Les Douches la Galerie in Paris through November 9, 2019.

 

Terence Woodgate

London Design Festival / 17th Edition

The annual citywide event brings together a global community of designers, artists, architects and the creative industries with a vision to celebrate and promote design, and London as its capital. Closes today, September 22, 2019, at Victoria & Albert Museum.

 

Andrei Tarkovsky / The Mirror (still)

Andrei Tarkovsky / The Exhibition

The masterpieces of Andrei Tarkovsky weave together dreams and memories, past and present. The painterly beauty of his images and his poignant metaphysical reflections on humanity, still inspire. On view through December 6, 2019 at Eye Film Museum, Amsterdam.

Museum Motus Mori

In Katja Heitmann’s choreographic sculptures, body parts are isolated, mechanically brought into motion, the hips tilted, the leg lifted, driven across the space where every movement is deliberate, and fragments constantly repositioned in time. On view through October 27, 2019 at Marres, House for Contemporary Culture.
