Performance VISITE SURPRISE at Musée Malraux Le Havre

"Le But de l’ISS est d’examiner le pouvoir transformateur de la peinture à l’exemple des paysages de Nicolas de Staël. L’ISS est un institut qui réunit science, recherche métaphysique et foi sous un même toit."
 As representative of the ISS (Institut Scientifique Spirituel, Département du Paranormal), I was doing my duty: explaining the talking, weeping and healing paintings of mystical painter Nicolas de Stael.


"Ce tableau est une peinture magique, avec le pouvoir de soigner - et je n’exagère pas. L’artiste écrit (citation): “Ma peinture, je sais ce qu’elle est sous ses apparences, sa violence, ses perpétuels jeux de force, c’est une chose fragile dans le sens du bon, du sublime. C’est fragile comme l’amour.”  On sait que l’amour n’est jamais loin du soin.
Ainsi, ce peintre violent et brusque, a finalement réussi à traduire visuellement ce qui véritablement “allume” l’horizon, et qui n’est ni “la lumière du jour”, ni la “lumière des couleurs”. Il a créé une peinture qui émet de la lumière guérissante, à l’effet curatif. 
La preuve du contenu soignant de cette oeuvre est encore a démontrer, mais il est une réalité qu’elle guérit. En effet, il y a des “miracles” produits par cette peinture (nous en avons une dizaine d’exemples, une gamme qui range de l’amélioration du mal a la tête jusqu’a la guérison d’un cancer)....
A l’ISS, on s’explique le mécanisme guérissante ainsi:  la peinture émet de l’énergie, de l’aura, de la vitalité, de la force intrinsèque, tout ce qui provient de sa beauté extreme. Ces ondes captent le spectateur, et provoquent en lui une fascination sans mots; ils provoquent aussi que le corps du spectateur se met en mouvement, introduisant ainsi le processus de la guérison. En fin de compte, l’image a une puissance mystérieux et ne se résume certainement pas a ce qui est montré."

 Performances at Musée Malraux, Le Havre, in the exhibition space of the exhibition "Lumières du Nord, Lumières du Sud" with paintings and drawings by Nicolas de Stael.
18/ 19. October 2014, 3pm and 5pm. Duration 50-60 minutes.

Your Matchmaker: Andreas Schlaegel

This is no buddy show, neither is it a presentation of the „Schlagel class“ from the Oslo art academy. No, it is exactly what the title suggests, when a curator acts as dating service, intuitively pairing young guns from Oslo (last year‘s graduates from the academy) with established artists from Berlin, and confronts these couples with the request to produce a collaborative piece for this exhibtion. Attempting to compliment diverging personal characters, opposing artistic positions and practices, the effort was to create the platform for starting an artistic conversation across generations, locations and discourses.
But not all matches light up, as finally the show is an experiment, based on and limited by the curator‘s personal experience and understanding of the work the artists involved produce. At the end the curator‘s main occupation will be managing the self-induced desaster, when nothing‘s off limits and anything goes, hopes may be high, but expectations better stay low. This way love will last forever. Or we call the break-up service.
