MFA graduate Raphael Langmair (2012) has a solo presentation at P/////AKT, Amsterdam – opening saturday march 12, 2016 20.00 -24.00 h.
In 2016 P/////AKT is focusing on the conceptual legacy of Marcel Broodthaers’ 1964 work Le Pense-Bête and its relevance in current discourse. P/////AKT will outline six aspects of Le Pense-Bête, each of which comprises a solo exhibition, a public event, and an essay. The second aspect deals with transition, gesture and authenticity. The act of rendering his collected poems illegible by casting them in plaster is exemplary for the transitory qualities of Broodthaers’ artistic practice.
Object: As an act
To Whom It May Concern
Reflected upon by Elise van Mourik
Essay by Maxine Kopsa
Opening: Saturday 12 March, 20 – 24 hrs
13 March – 10 April 2016

Adriano La Licata, VHS 2015
Current MFA participant Adriano La Licata (IT) has a solo exhibition at Von Holden Studio, Palermo – curated by Francesco De Grandi and VHS.
17.12.2015 – 17.01.2016 / Opening december 17th, 19.00 h
“It remains this strange sense of a light and sweet work, so pure it can reach the innocence, but intense and sincere at the same time.”
Francesco De Grandi
Von Holden Studio opens the exhibition season with ‘ALL’, solo exhibition of the Sicilian artist Adriano La Licata (Palermo, 1989), enhanced by the curatorial support of artist Francesco De Grandi, one generation older than him and always attentive to the nursery of artists in the capital.
The exhibition, which opens Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 19:00, is composed by a clear body of work, 3 key moments of the latest research of the artist. It has been preferred to focus on a few elements as specific as fragile, along the balance of the biographical abstraction. Between documentation and ambiguity, amongst a delicate tragicomic vein and a strong meditative propensity, Adriano La Licata investigates – as he describes in his own words – ‘ that sensitive energy which arises between two or more points’.

MFA tutor Marjolijn Dijkman has a solo at Rundum, as part of the Fotokuu Biennal in Talinn, Estland.
The film installation In Our Hands is based on research into hand gestures that were developed to influence, heal, predict – or ward off – the future. The final choreography includes a range of gestures from diverse sources – from spiritual to political to military – that have become removed from their original context. The film consists of a with motion capture produced animation of two virtual transparent hands. In Our Hands relates to current debates around Artificial Intelligence, it’s often anthropomorphic character and the concept of singularity with a form of super intelligence that we will or won’t keep in control.
The accompanying sound piece in the exhibition is a composition made of 18 computer generated binaural tones or brainwaves.
The exhibition opens tonight, thursday oct 22, and runs until november 8th.

In Sound and Vision, David Bowie sings about the moment of wonder in place and time, in which ideas and inspiration can emerge. It is this moment of wonder that is expressed in the exhibition, that will show a mixture of works, artists and methods. Quoting from pop culture and philosophy, the exhibition functions as a temporary autonomous zone.
The works are fascinating expressions of individual research and will contribute to the festival ambiance, but in the show autonomy, depth and originality will be preserved. Don’t you wonder sometimes? expands the visual side of modern psych. With Marijn van Kreij, Gaia van Egmond, Thomas Raat, Lorelinde Verhees, Glenn Peeters and Maarten Spons.
You’re cordially invited!
