Matt Miley – Playfulness and the Lack Thereof

“My work is a reflection of my journey to find a higher awareness of my moment to moment experience. This type of venture has traditionally been confined to and referenced by rigid and crumbling institutions. To transcend these systems of thought, I intend for my work to signify psychological change that dismantles and rebuilds recurrently. I use willed introspection and mythological propositions to guide me, as schema, through this journey”

Matt Miley Galleri Duerr Lakritsfestivalen 2015Matt is a visual artist originally from the southern United States. Following the completion of his Master’s degree in Fine Arts at Florida State University where graduate students participate in annual trips to Art Basel Miami Beach international art fair. Matt moved to New York City in 2009 to work at the School of Visual Arts. Matt Miley is currently living and making art in Stockholm.

His work has been exhibited internationally. Segments of Matt’s work are heavily influenced by his life experiences in the southern United States. Matt completed a Bachelor degree at Mississippi College. During graduate school, Matt pursued an opportunity to study in London and Amsterdam. There, he observed a complex social, cultural, and political environment. Europe bares some similarities to the southern United States but is often completely divergent. Matt’s research involved the critical reason, comparative mythology, and theory in contemporary art.

During his time at Florida State University he built a body of thesis work that involved aspects of narrative drawing and painting mixed abstract and ambiguous segments in large scale. In 2010 he collaborated with a colleague in Philadelphia to generate an exhibition entitled “When She Strikes”. The work involved two large large-scale 6 x 16 foot drawings, video, and found sound was exhibited in Brooklyn and Philadelphia. He has also been involved in building and co-directing the Pinion Gallery in New York. The gallery was physically based in Brooklyn and hosted seven exhibitions. Matt recently completed a series of paintings entitled “Surface; Cataract; Inundate” involving zoomorphic and landscape features in a state of becoming or becoming undone. 

Matt Miley is a part of Galleri Duerr’s exhibition ”Playfulness and the Lack Thereof” at the Liquorice Festival in Stockholm, March 21-22, last year with a visitor count of 10 000. The show also includes the Swedish artists Lina L. Baker and Patrik Lundell (who has just returned to Stockholm after two years in Florence), American artist David Eisenhauer  and Irish artist Alannah Robins who is creating a full scale sculpture in liquorice!

Sculpture in liquorice !

Go for a walk in Grizedale Forest Sculpture Park in Cumbria and you will come across the five meter tall sculpture ‘Woman of the Water’, by contemporary Irish artist Alannah Robins. This work is ranked by the Guardian as one of the top eight sculptures of the female figure in England in a group which impressively includes artist Henry Moore. Another masterpiece by Alannah Robins – the playful ‘Reflex’ – is no more than a hand high. Between these two pieces is a  wide spectrum both in terms of size, material and expression.

Alannah Robins is now accepting the challenge to make a sculpture of liquorice and the goal is a scaled up version of her tiny girl Reflex. The sculpture will have an iron skeleton for stability, but will otherwise be made of liquorice. The sculpture will gain prominence during the Liquorice Festival March 21 – 22 in Stockholm, where Alannah Robins will tell about the process. Galleri Duerr will also present a new exhibition – Playfulness and the lack Thereof, including more prominent artists. Alannah Robins process will be followed by Liquorice Festival website / Facebook, where we will continuously update on what Alannah Robins needs in order to succeed in the creation of this unique work and we will all be able to assist her in this, nothing ventured nothing gained! Support the project “A Sculpture in Liquorice” on Kickstarter NOW!

CHRISMAS EACH DAY Puckeln 44

Photograph Nuno Perestrelo Galleri Duerr Stockholm

Nuno Perestrelo

Efter nästan 50 år av diktatur och censur klev portugiserna, varav 60 % varken kunde läsa eller skriva rakt ut i det kalla kriget och en global marknadsekonomi. Fotografen Nuno Perestrelo, född 16 år efter Nejlikerevolutionen 1974, skildrar i sina poetiska färgfotografier en storindustri söder om Lissabon som en gång var – fulla med spår av förhoppningar och aktivitet. Monument, inte bara över tidens och naturens påverkan utan också över löften om samhällsutveckling, ekonomisk kris och kemisk åverkan. Platser där människor en gång levde av jordbruk och fiske. Med detta fotoprojekt blev Nuno Perestrelo för första gången intresserad av historia och vill med sin skildring berätta en historia som hans egen generation knappt eller inte alls känner till och frågar sig om rädslan för fler ekonomiska åtgärdspaket släcker viljan till samhällsförändring.

Galleri Duerr gästspelar på Horngatspuckeln 44 fram t o m den 14 december med Nuno Perestrelos bilder, texter och en intervju som producerats av Panoptikon – Fotografins Hus där bilderna tidigare visats. Med oss har vi också verk som Tiggaren av Maria Saveland, Alla Helgons Dag av Irländska Alannah Robins – av The Guardian klassad som en av de åtta bästa att avbilda kvinnokroppen i England och David Eisenhauers verk om komplexiteten. Ingen samlings-utställning utan en fransman, bildkonstnär Didier Mazurus verk, producerade i brytningen mellan hans serier Dans och Mekano. Även Lina L Baker från Liljevalchs vårsalong deltar med sina senaste “porträttbilder” Don´t feed the animals inspirerade av sekelskiftet med nutids-perspektiv på föräldrarskap och hur det är att vara barn i en tid som vår. Med oss

Debora House Galleri Duerr

Debora House

har vi också Debora House verk North Sea, Niklas Bremans ljudinstallation Julkort 24 days och Kerstin Kallins taggiga brudkrona Vintergäck tillverkad av återbruksmaterial. Vi har helt enkelt samlat det vi själva tycker om, för konst handlar till sist om att hitta något som på något sätt väcker något i oss. Och som Didier Mazuru brukar säga är det upp till betraktaren att tolka in vad konsten egentligen står för, så kanske var jag något övertydlig här. Allt detta har vi samlat bakom ett fantastiskt skyltfönster, där vi låtit verk cirkulera. Det är kul när förbipasserande knackar på vårt stora skyltfönster och gör tummen upp och människor kommer in och tar del av konstnärernas verk och vår storytelling. Det gör mödan väl värd att upprepas. Gör som vi investera i julklappen hos oss i år.

To avoid repeating past mistakes, you must know and understand them. 

Photographer Nuno Perestrelos poetic images of a time that once was, was born out of the need to rescue a forgotten time.

 – I am not politically active, most people do not consider themselves to be, but everything we do and all of our choices become politics – even when we choose not to choose. 

How will young people be able to maintain a democracy when they barely understand how it works, barely know it’s history or even understand it’s fragility, says Nuno when we first make contact through Skype, shortly after seeing his exhibition Lost Empires at the Panoptikon Contemporary Photographic Exhibition Hall on Skeppsholmen in Stockholm.

Blast Furnace 1

Nuno’s images bear traces of a Portugal with large vibrant industries in steel, chemistry, cork and shipbuilding, active during the 50s, 60s and 70s – with the intention of development of the rural areas – (farming and fishing villages), at a time when Portugal still had colonies. 

Lisnave – a supplier to major shipping companies around the world, employed 10 000 people during the period of Europe’s most technological revolution. Nuno’s pictures bear traces of the political activity that prevailed during the 70s, where the individual worker’s decisions could affect the entire civil society. During the Carnation Revolution in 1974 – a democratic revolution led by a group of radical officers and supported by most workers  – the Salazar dictatorship ended after 48 years in power, resulting in the confiscation of several shipyards and industrial complexes in this area south of Lisbon.

Lisnave 5

From a world of censorship where 60 % of the people could not even read or write, Portuguese citizens stepped into the world of globalization, market forces and The Cold War – a period of sharp disagreements without conventional war, primarily between the USSR and USA.

Nuno has captured a time in his strong images of the now abandoned Lisnave and other industrial complexes – portraying them as monuments from the bankrupties and rampant unemployment. The Portuguese government continues to sell-off important and strategic companies in the hope of being able to repay their enormous debts to the large EU banks, which are owned by wealthy families who also happen to be the owners of the large farms and corporations.

 – It feels like history is repeating itself … where did democracy go wrong? asks Nuno. Has the fear of a new crisis removed the desire for change?

His documentary ”Lost Empires” has steadily grown from an abstract base of colorful images of abandoned walls and buildings, resulting in his recent exhibition at Panoptikon which included 30 images. Galleri Duerr is proud to be showing the works of the Portuguese photographer Nuno Perestrelo. All of the images we are currently exhibiting are the first prints in a limited edition of 5, printed and signed by the artist.

Didier Mazuru Galleri Duerr StockholmRedan på 80-talet började jag i skissblock att teckna linjer baserade på handens fria rörelse. Sedermera lämnade jag dessa teckningar för att ägna mig åt en annan teckningssvit bestående av sammansatta människoliknande karaktärer som jag samlade under namnet ”I drömmarnas benhus”. 2010 kände jag ett behov av att återvända till mina skisser för att bearbeta bilderna.

Bilden måste upplevas, inte analyseras. Konsten eller målningen är framförallt sensitiv. Att måla i min mening, är att gå på jakt efter, inte idéer, utan förnimmelsen som bär det känslomässiga. Idéerna behöver inte måleri för att existera och utvecklas. Däremot kan målningen ge tillträde till känslor och känslostämningar annars så otillgängliga. Målningen fungerar på samma sätt som musik, dans eller skulptur. Den syftar till att befria en ren energi som förmodligen väcker våra sinnen och vår känslighet, sätter i gång vår förnimmelseförmåga och fantasi.

Skuggornas Dans

Inom dessa områden är idéerna i allmänhet bråkmakare som påverkar vårt sätt att förnimma och hindrar oss från att okonstlat uppfatta tingen som de är och fördjupa vår syn på dem. Det handlar därför inte här om att tänka, förstå än mindre att döma men att känna. För att kunna göra detta får vi inte förhasta oss”
