ARTPIL / Prescription .116
Spiritus Mundi

 

The end of Summer is upon us; another Fall at hand. A new world order awaits; and with it, a new set of uncertainties. The work place culture is in full transition with work places themselves now transformed. Children are back in school, or not…. Masks / No masks – this uncivil war playing out in parking lots across nations. And through it all, the one unbreakable cycle of two seasons in this post modern existence persists: election campaigns, and elections. Spiritus Mundi of such little certainty: The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Thing fall apart; The center cannot hold… (Yeats).

Welcome to the .116th edition of Prescriptions. We recently closed out some summer exhibitions, preparing now for the fall. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Marie Chouinard

Jardin de Sculptures Ephémères

The MAC Montreal recently presented the world premiere of Jardin de Sculptures Ephémères – Acte 1, a new performance by dancer and choreographer Marie Chouinard on its digital platforms. Just closed at The MAC, but still viewable on their website.

 

Jan Voss

Jan Voss: Parcelles

“The painter is a loner in his studio. Therefore, not much has changed in my working approach during this lockdown. My work consists of worrying about the paper: its smoothness, its modesty.” –Jan Voss. Showing at Galerie Lelong & Co., Online Viewing Room.

 

Takesada Matsutani

Takesada Matsutani / Stream

Takesada Matsutani says of his work, “Time is for me, most important. I was born, I must die. But my conscious is streaming for infinity. My infinity, my purpose, my desire is there. That’s my imagination.” Presented online at Hauser & Wirth.

 

Mandy El-Sayegh
