Higo Ticciati Festicak Omodernt Edition 2017 Confidencen Ulriksdals slottspark Galleri Duerr

Kreativitet – hörnsten i all framtida utbildning!

Hugo Ticciati, konstnärlig ledare för festival O/MODƏRNT, Sveriges mest kreativa violinist, medryckande curator, räds inte att låta genrer, tidsepoker, konstarter och vetenskaper samspela. Med musikfestivalen O/MODƏRNT Edition 2017 utforskar musiker i världsklass förhållandena mellan gamla kompositörers verk och dagens konstnärliga och intellektuella uttryck. Ett experimenterande som först i mötet, på Sveriges äldsta rokokoscen och i mötet med publiken hittar sin slutgiltiga form om det nu finns någon sådan i Hugo Ticciatis värld. För att nämna något ett möte mellan Vivaldi, finsk folk- och rock med portugisisk vild dans eller mötet redan i Confidencens foajé, när Contemporary Fine Art Photography möter rokokointeriören i form av Natalia Mikkola och Paul Quants verk. Möten vi knappt kunnat drömma om, i det som inte kan kläs i ord.

Strax före Hugo Ticciati, hyllad i bland andra Der Tages Spiegel, Berlin, som en av världens verkligt lovande musiker, går på scen med O/Modernt String Quartet, 19 juni, visionerar vi med Hugo och en av Lilla akademins elever, där Hugo själv studerat runt temat ”Kreativitet – hörnsten i all framtida utbildning”.  Deltar i samtalet gör också en av årets utställande konstnärer – fotograf Paul Quant. Skolad av klassiska fotografer på Försvarets Materielverk. Paul avböjde en plats på traditionell fotoutbildning, väl medveten om att skolan aldrig skulle kunna ge honom det dessa klassiska fotografer hanterade  – glasplåtar, 70 mm flygfilm från andra världskriget, enorma förstoringsapparater, blekning och allt som hör mörkrum till. Ett gediget hantverk som gett Paul ett brett spektrum i jakten på rätt bild och misstagen i hantverksprocesserna är delar av det Paul bär med sig in i nya kreativa projekt. Samtalet modereras av Galleri Duerrs Lotte Johansson.

I anslutning till Festival O/MODƏRNTs konserter 16-21 juni visas verk av Paul Quant och Natalia Mikkola i Confidencens foajé. Verken säljs i begränsad upplaga, finns representerade på Artsy, den internationella plattformen för konstsamlande och utbildning samt i Festival O/MODƏRNTs booklet 2017, designad av Deborah Duerr. Intäkter går till att stödja festivalen och utställande konstnärer i sin profession. Intresseanmälan lämnas via mail inför Festival O/MODƏRNT eller direkt på plats under Silent Auction som pågår 16-21 juni.

Hidden War

Maria Turchenkova born in Moscow 1987, is currently based between Moscow, Paris and Erbil. Turchenkova is a member of the Getty Reportage Emerging Talent and participated 2013 in the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam. In 2014 she was selected one of “PDN´s 30: New and Emerging Photographers to Watch”. Her work has appeared in TIME Magazine, NYT, Le Monde, Der Speigel, La Republica, Arte TV and others.

After five years of radio journalism Maria Turchenkova took up photography. Since 2011 her attention has focused primarily on the North Caucasus (Russia) where she conducted a long-term project ‘Hidden War In The Land Of Mountains’ concerning the ongoing armed conflict in the region. Since the crisis broke out in Ukraine, with annexation of Crimea and revolt in East Ukraine, Maria Turchenkova has been working on her project “People’s republic of chaos”, telling about the war in Donbass. At the same time Maria works on her personal project in the Middle East.

Dagestan, North Caucasus, Russia

The Republic of Dagestan in North Caucasus, Russia, with a population of about 3 million, is comprised of more then 40 ethnic groups where ethnic Russians make up roughly 4,5%. Despite the reduction of large-scale military operations 10 years ago in Chechnya and Grozny emerging after decades of chaos under the autocratic rule of Kadyrov, the neighboring Dagestan is locked in a cycle of violence,  and unlawfulness, which affects every family. In fact anyone, can appear under pressure, threat and suspect. While it stays out of news agenda in the central part of Russia, Dagestan today has almost a half of its territory  under a special security regimen (CTO, or “counter-terrorist operation”) and populace endures martial law, rigid curfews and random searches enforced by the Russian military.

Dagestan today is split by seemingly intractable social and religious differences. The gap between the richest and the poorest is enormous. Salafism — a puritanical form of Islam — is largely raising its profile against the Sufi Muslims, complicating the already tangled political and religious picture.

The women in Dagestan have traditionally enjoyed more freedom in comparison to Chechnya, but the spread of violence and radical Islam has changed their lives. While the Russian part of the Caucasus, including Dagestan, is under Russian law, nowadays the women here find themselves suppressed either by custom or Sharia law, exempt from legal support of the authorities and the applicable legal system. As a result they become victims of killings of honor, kidnappings, domestic violence, sexual abuse, torture, acts of terrorism and counterterrorism. Meanwhile the story of the women’s sufferings often stay in the shadows and those who are guilty are rarely punished, as the problems of women are taboo for public discussion in the Caucasian part of Russia.

While with only officially more than 3000 victims of the ongoing armed conflict during past 5 years, Dagestan remains the undisputed leader in the level of violence among the regions of North Caucasus / Maria Turchenkova

Islands of Sculptures and Photographs 19/5-18/6

Alannahcroppedspaceinvader

Alannah Robins. Space Invaders. Bronze.

The work of contemporary Irish artist Alannah Robins, based in Connemara, revolves around themes of identity, memory, migration and man’s relationship to nature. Her five meter tall wooden sculpture Woman of the Water, still intact after 20 years in Cumbria Sculpture Park, is ranked by The Guardian as one of the top eight sculptures of the female figure in England. Galleri Duerr presents Alannah Robins works in bronze.

Crimean / Åland photographer Natalia Mikkola´s work blurs the boundaries between the real and the imagined. Rather than pure documentation, Natalia strives to convey a specific feeling, atmosphere. Her large format Fine Art chromogenic prints are mounted on plexiglas ®Diasec, produced by a renowned lab in Dusseldorf. Natalia Mikkola’s work has already been acquired by well-known collectors throughout Europe.
