Ivana Franke – Travel Along

24 September – 16 october 2011

In a dark room, there is an undulating line of light floating in the air. If one walks throughout the room, this light wave oscillates; its amplitudes change in correlation to the movement of one’s mind and body, as if the light transcribes these movements into imagery. 
A large wooden ring is placed on the floor. Another, identical one is suspended from the ceiling above it, at the three-meters height. The rings are connected by monofilament lines, which are stretched in different directions, thus forming irregular cylinder. The LED light is positioned in the middle of the cylinder, projecting light onto it. Depending on the angle of viewing, the line changes position, curvature and size.

Quartair proudly presents Ivana Franke’s first solo show in the Netherlands. The artist investigates the relationship between materiality in appearance and our feeling of spatial dimensions. Her work consists of site specific light installations. Franke often uses transparent materials and light to create a sense of temporariness. She was born in Zagreb, Croatia (1973) and is based in Berlin. The artist has exhibited at P.S.1 Center for Contemporary Art in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, The Biennale of Venice and Manifesta 7 Italy.

Nieuw werk van Ali Bramwell
artist in residence bij Quartair Contemporary Arts Initiative.

Met alledaagse, industriele en gevonden materialen maakt Bramwell installaties, als tijdelijke systemen aangepast aan de ruimte. Dit laatste werk is een voortzetting van eerder werk voortkomend uit een niet aflatende interesse in spanning en risicomanagement. Het werk is site specific en een respons op Quartair, zowel de ruimte als het kunstenaarsinitiatief.
