We curated a project for the Yerevan Biennial!


Very excited to announce we curated a special project for the Yerevan Biennial!

“Time Out of Joint” is an online exhibition entirely taking place on the Darknet, a remote location at the “periphery” of the Internet, where time operates at a slow pace and pages load unhurriedly.
New works by six artists including Joshua Citarella, Clusterduck, David Horvitz, Vladan Joler, Amalia Ulman and 2050+ will be added once every two weeks, from October 2020 to January 2021, and in peer-to-peer style they are available to be seen, copied, reused… The title for this show was borrowed from a novel by Philip K. Dick.

Ceiling Cat in the public domain


Eva & Franco Mattes

We just released to public domain the hires image of our sculpture Ceiling Cat, through Wikipedia. We made an agreement with SFMOMA – who acquired the work – to give up ownership of the photo, so that anybody can copy it and use it for whatever purpose, free of charge: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Eva_and_Franco_Mattes,_Ceiling_Cat.jpg
You’re all welcome to download it and use it!

 

 

 

 

SELL YOUR PHONE (AND ALL OF YOUR PHOTOS) FOR $1,000


Eva and Franco Mattes, Riccardo Uncut

We are looking for a person who is willing to sell their phone, including all stored photos and videos. The photo and video contents will be used for an artwork addressing issues of privacy, exhibitionism and voyeurism in our hyperconnected society.

The work will preview in our solo exhibition at Fotomuseum Winterthur and become part of the museum’s permanent collection. In other words: your photos will become public, forever.

Looking forward to seeing too much of you!

“We’re becoming uncomfortably intimate with loss, and even death, through our screens – but this time, it’s real.” Timely piece by Tina Rivers Ryan on today’s Artforum.
