Outside The Box2 Welcomes Innovative Art from 37 Artists

“Outside the Box2” is the second biennial exhibition of outdoor, site-specific art in Palm Beach County, FL. This unique and alternative format, situated at the uniquely prestigious Whitespace-The Mordes Collection, features innovative contemporary artists that will interact with the unique landscape & outdoor environment. This year’s exhibit has grown in scope with nearly double the amount of installations, and including artists from throughout Florida, from Gainesville to Tampa to Miami. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!

 

 

 

37 Artists prepare for a whirlwind install of
Outdoor Site-specific Art in upcoming 2-Night Biennial

 

Outside the Box2 at

Whitespace – The Mordes Collection

 

Curated by Lisa Rockford

 

Whitespace – The Mordes Collection
2805 N. Australian Avenue, West Palm Beach, Florida 33407 T: 561.842.4131

 

Exhibition Dates: APRIL 4, 7:30 pm – 10:30 & APRIL 5, 7:30 pm – 10:30

Admission: $10 per person

Free parking. No reservations required. Open to the Public

 

 

 

The exhibit involved extensive preparation on the part of the curator and artists.   Lisa Rockford, the curator, said she gave preference to installations that were “imaginative, include interactive and/or multi- sensory elements, have high aesthetic appeal, and incorporate nature, or adapt well to the site.”

Site Map

Site Map

 

Attendees will walk through a maze of color, images & sounds. Visitors can use the map to ensure that they find all 37 installations. The artworks range from hand-sculpted ceramics, found object assemblage, video art, performances, and interactive installations.

 

 

 

After paying admission, visitors will immediately walk through the first artwork, a spidery mixed media arch hand- crocheted by artist Kristina Thalin. Viewers will next feel they are seeing spots, in a site-specific installation by Sylvia Riquezes, who utilized the surrounding natural elements to inspire and create her own versions of “Seeds” in the palm trees, and flora & fauna for the bushes, entitled “Bodhisattvas Emerging from the Earth” .

 

Sylvia Ruquezes

Visitors will walk through Matthew Falvey’s 20 foot long tunnel of televisions, which have sensors that change imagery and sound according to people’s movements. Then they will be confronted by the monstrous scale of Andrew Nigon’s artwork, “Oh! Oh God!” which is a colorful 12 foot elephant, made of found objects & insulation foam. The sculpture is in a continual evolution, its gestural positioning and surfaces textures changing each time it is shown, based on the artists’ changing worldview.

Andrew Nigon "Oh, Oh God"

Andrew Nigon “Oh, Oh God”

 

According to the artist, the elephant is an “endlessly comforting god that absorbs my uncertainties, instead of offering critical judgments.” 

 

 

 

Onlookers will be also be immediately drawn to Carmen Tiffany’s whimsical video animation, which she calls a “liquid painting”. It will be projected billboard size on the front wall, easily seen from the road.

 As viewers walk around the building, there are more intimately scaled, or quieter works that only the most observant visitors will find, like the “miniature dreamscapes” of Christine Fogel, or the installation by Martin Casuso, which is unassumingly hidden under the portico. 

 

Whitespaceimage[18]

 

Other captivating artworks will force attendees to stop and look as they make their way along the tarmac toward the waterfront installations. Judy Polstra’s femme fatale sculptures are always crowd-pleasers, probably due to the sheer number of parts assembled together to make up each figure. Judy had never before thought of exhibiting her work outdoors, and had to be courted by the curator to submit a proposal. You can examine her sculptures for hours and still find something new, from teeth, to jewelry, to buttons, and toy parts.

 

Pilar Batlle - Yarn Bombing

Pilar Batlle – Yarn Bombing

Many will surely want to pause for a “photo op” at the installation by Pilar Batlle. Pilar is part of the new trend of “Yarn Bombing” street art, only instead of yarn, she uses “Plarn” (plastic yarn).  Her pseudonym on the street is “The Trashy Spider.” As an environmental statement, Pilar cuts ups post consumer waste (plastic bags) to crochet doily- like decorative designs and cover objects like trees, fire hydrants, and parking meters. The durability of the plastic makes them an ideal material for outdoor use. 

 

Cat-Del-Buono-fish video-install1

As part of the proposal process, artists were also encouraged to incorporate a light source into their design. One prime example of self-lit work is a dynamic piece by Mark Joseph Oliver, who just relocated to Florida last year to be an art professor at Florida Atlantic University. When Lisa Rockford asked Mark to submit a proposal, he immediately wanted to re-appropriate his sculpture “Telecommunication,” which consists of acrylic rods protruding from a working TV set. The clear rods dramatically emphasize the colorful light of the images on TV, and transform it into an ethereal work that seduces the viewer like a moth to a flame.

 

 

14Mark_Joseph_Oliver-Sketch_sofacrash copy

Mark’s idea was to transmute the sculpture into a meteorite that has humorously just landed on a couch, that he explains is a portrayal of the way television has affected domestic life. For this event, the TV will play movies that shaped his childhood and worldview.

 

 

15PERFORMANCE-kaleb-durocher-mumbi-obrien_moonbathing

 

As visitors weave their way along the asphalt through more sculptural interventions and projections, they will pass through a gate into the second stage of installations on the backside of the property, along the waterfront. This area will include three different live performances, ongoing throughout each night.

 

 

Mumbi O’Brien and Kaleb Durocher collaborated on a performance with precisely linked digital components. For the performative component, there will be a head-dressed character that embodies the essence of the moon. The front of their garment is a cream color and the back is black to represent the dark side of the moon. The headdress will also be circular to emphasize the cyclical nature of the moon, constructed of repurposed materials, synthetic hair, wooden reeds, and fabric. The performer will be completely covered from head to toe with their face obscured and hands painted so the emphasis is not on their identity but rather that which they are embodying. The digital component of the piece is a projection facing down towards the earth.

 

16PERFORMANCE-sketch-joseph_Herring2

 

The projector will be controlled from a laptop so that when moon character enters this particular location, an active projection will begin to encircle them, morphing and rotating with imagery of the various stages of the moon. After some time the projected circle will open up and turn off and the moon character will react by moving slowly and elegantly away from the space, either to look out over the water (as the moon controls the tides) or disappear. In some very special cases, a guest may wander upon the exact projection site, and the projection will envelope them as well, allowing them to be a part of this ritual. However, the minute they step away or someone else interferes, the projection will stop.

 

17PERFORMANCE-Joseph Herring Proposal1

 

Further down the grass, Joseph Herring will stage a performative installation entitled “Broward County Botanical Melodramatic: A Conversation between the Saw Palmetto and the Spanish Bayonet on the Pros and Cons of Obligate Pollination Mutualism vs. Indiscriminate Polyamorous Pollination involving the poetics of interaction between costumed plants and insects.”   Joseph Herring is a professor at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, and has staged elaborate performance installations and interventions at a range of prestigious venues, including High Desert Test Sites in Joshua Tree, founded by Andrea Zittel, Light Assembly, for Art Basel Miami Beach, Verge Art Miami Beach, Zeitgeist Multi- Disciplinary Arts Center, the Istanbul Contemporary Art Museum, and the Christine Koenig Galerie, Vienna.

 

web12

For this performance, Joseph elucidates that: “Two plants, the Saw Palmetto and the Spanish Bayonet, sit atop giant tripods and communicate back and forth using plant telepathy. Root systems hang down from both plants. The plants will interact with the insects on the ground, the Honey Bee and the Yucca Moth, through their root systems, both physically and telepathically. Physically in that the roots will move through the actions of a puppeteer, telepathically in that the puppeteer will play kit-bashed and circuit bent electronic game-instruments with the attached hanging roots.

 

 

 

PERFORMANCE-sketch-Joseph_Hering

The insects will react to the sounds and respond with electronic sounds of their own, fed to radios around their necks from computers underneath the tripods. The games bent for sound will include Operation, Simon, and various Nintendo DS Lite games with interesting audio. Audio will also include the plants conversing through megaphones, and the conversation will sound like a mix of DADA poetry and the Children’s Television Workshop’s The Electric Company. The piece will refer not only to the installation and performance’s relationship to the physical environment, but also to the specific geographical location. The Saw Palmetto and The Spanish Bayonet are two plants indigenous to the area. The Saw Palmetto has played an important part in the life of Floridians since before the Spanish invasion, and this history will be explored aurally during the performance.” 

 

web18

 

As visitors continue exploring the waterfront, and look out into the water, they will notice a otherworldly, large glowing white island in the shape of a baby, by Kevin Curry. The floating sculpture was elaborately planned through computer programming and will be created in a mosaic of geometric parts using a CNC router.  The piece is titled “Lost and Found” and “addresses the innocence and potential of beginnings, as well as the sadness and regret of hindsight.”

 

 

WATER-amalia_Mermingas-1 copy

 

An installation that only the most perceptive viewers will find on the waterfront are the organic sculptures of Amalia Mermingas . Amalia was inspired by the way Andy Goldsworthy works endlessly on an earthwork sculpture only to watch it fall apart. As result, her artworks are intentionally ephemeral, made with unfired ceramics, and placed at the water’s edge, so that they dissolve and change shape over the course of the night from the erosion of the water’s tides. Amalia states that she is releasing her sculptures like a performance. The viewer can watch the clay sculptures become reclaimed by nature.

 

 

The final elaborate performance is on the opposite end of the beach, called “Kicking Comets,” by Craig Smith’s entourage, will be the most boisterous. Craig Smith is an internationally recognized artist and teaches at the University of Florida. He has been featured at a range of venues including the PS1MOMA Contemporary Art Institute, The Tate Modern, CEPA Gallery, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, The George Eastman House, ARTSPACE Sydney, SCM Hong Kong, and galleries including Galerie Schuster Photo (Berlin), RARE Art (New York), Big Orbit (Buffalo), The Kent Gallery, and White Columns (New York). He has also published two books: On the Subject of the Photographic (2008: University of the Arts London) and Training Manual for Relational Art (2009: Big Orbit Gallery).

18CRAIG SMITHcepa-gallery-2013-the-art-of-sport-1

 

Craig’s oeuvre consistently focuses “The Art of Sport,” and this performance will likewise be highly athletic, consisting of endless, repetitive place-kicking by the artist of footballs from the shoreline toward a boat with three other performers waiting in the water. The performers in the water will have search lights on their heads and hand-held fishing nets, zigzagging the boat, attempting to catch or capture the balls. A vintage Porsche 911 will be placed on the beach to illuminate the artist and boat with its headlights. The footballs will have reflective tape so that they look like comets sailing through the air.

 

 

There are more notable installations and site-specific interventions than can be mentioned. The Outside the Box2 Biennial is sure to become one of the most significant and indispensable celebrations of visual art in South Florida, and will clearly be a spectacle of visual delights for all who attend.

The Whitespace Collection is open for public viewing every Sunday from 1 – 4 pm.  You’ll want to make a bee line to get a front row seat to see Beatriz Millar as she prepares and then bakes her bread goddesses.  Max Toth, whose artwork is installed at the Whitespace Collection site will be on hand to greet art patrons.  You can view two fascinating videos about his installation here:

 

In addition to Max and Beatriz, many of Whitespace’s community-based artists will be present and will offer a special limited edition video project for Whitespace.  Karla Walter  will present new work for previewing at Whitespace during Art Palm Beach. Work by community-based artists Kristen Miller Hopkins, Kenza Ayed, Julie Williams, IrinaG, Rene Von Rictofen, Lorri Ann Warren and Jacek Gancarz will be exhibited as well.

The Heart of Contemporary Art is at Whitespace Collection

Elayne and Marvin Mordes continue to give a gift of contemporary art to the community through their Whitespace Collection.  While visiting Whitespace one connects with the newest contemporary artists world-wide.  The Mordes’ have their fingers on the pulse of what is emerging in the field. Their bus trips to Miami (you can still sign up for the second and third dates) offer a bird’s eye view of this domain.  With changing exhibits throughout “season”, Whitespace Collection is a must for the art lover.

A WAKE OF VULTURES

Maximilion Toth

This exhibition of large-scale paintings and wall drawings by artist Maximilian Toth is shown alongside two films done in collaboration with artist Sarah Lasley.  The work explores the unapologetic  assertion of youth in the harsh face of mortality.

The primal urges of Toth’s line based figures fuel their games of conquest, loyalty, power, and pecking order. Each individual seeks their place within the group as well as in the world. The walls depict King of the Raft, a battle fought to be ruler of a floating,  bird-shit-covered, putting-green kingdom. A child king’s rule is retained only until they are thrown over into the surrounding waters. The new ruler revels in their status, until they too are overthrown and the struggle for power continues. Whether on land or at sea the scavengers engage in snow ball brawls, roman candle battles, and skirmishes around a blazing bonfire. They move in a writhing pack, roles and authority shifting, leaders crowned, usurped, swallowed, and replaced. In a world where games are played in an attempt to defy limitations, a raft becomes a kingdom and a snow fall is a war cry.

 

Toth’s paintings of initiation are brought to live action in the films War Party and Pumpkins. While the paintings concentrate on youth’s declaration, the films portray the realization that vitality is fleeting and the body is fragile. In light of this truth, Toth’s subjects find all the more reason to celebrate.

EENA’s Formula:  Feminine Bread Sculptures

– EENA is a female name and means “Renewing”. Every bread sculpture has it root in its own name:  Marl-eena, Yasm-eena, Hel-eena……
– EENA is also the short form for “European Emergency Number Association”.  My EENA will save and make safe all who call on her…  the feminine savior!
– Formula: something magical on the way to find the right combination between different essences,to find solutions, to win, to be healed, to love, to read signs in daily life.
EENA will find it. She tries and tries.  EENA : Goddess or witch!!!
