ABOUT THE FAIR

Miami Beach | BOOTH D17

DANIEL ARSHAM (US, 1980) straddles the line between art, architecture and performance. His sculptural works are poetic constructions, juxtaposing form and material. Arsham offers a eeting glimpse into our current culture and its signi ers, as if seen from a perspective in the distant future.
Arsham is a New York based artist, raised in Miami. His work has been shown at institutions such as PS1, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; The New Museum, New York; Carré d’Art de Nîmes; VDNH, Moscow and High Museum of Art, Atlanta.

INTI HERNANDEZ (CU, 1976) plays with visual languages of architecture and industrial design, as well as with their connectedness to daily life: “I make my art as a medium to create dialogues; as a means to share my personal experiences with those who engage with my work”. He is inspired by conversations about people’s dreams and ideas, which he translates into drawings, sculptures, performative actions and structures in public space.

Hernandez lives and works between Havana and Amsterdam. He studied at the Rijksacademie, Amsterdam, and has regularly participated in the Havana Biennale. Recent exhibitions include Perez Art Museum, Miami; CIFO Art Space, Miami; The Shelly & Donald Rubin Foundation, NYC; De Appel, Amsterdam and Garage, Rotterdam.

MUNTEAN / ROSENBLUM (AT/IL, 1962) mix references to art history and popular culture in their large-scale paintings. By playing with visual codes from the past and the present, they scrutinize the power of images and how these constitute an overwhelming collective memory.

Muntean/Rosenblum consists of Markus Muntean and Adi Rosenblum, who have collaborated since 1992. Recent exhibitions were at MAC, Coruña ; MOCAK, Krakow ; and Tate Britain, London. Their work is included in public and private collections such as MoMA, New York; the Burger Collection, and the Rubell Family Collection.

BORIS TELLEGEN (NL, 1968) investigates the tension between schedule and happenstance; the semblance of order schematically undone by chaos. He captivates the spatial relationship between the real and the conceptual in a geometrical style with perspective.

Tellegen lives and works in the Netherlands. Recent exhibitions include MIMA, Brussels; Les Abattoirs, Toulouse; Amsterdam Museum and Palais de Tokyo, Paris. In 2017 Tellegen created a series of sculptures between Amersfoort and Utrecht in the framework of De Stijl’s centenary celebration.

TROIKA is an art collective with a particular interest in the subjective and objective readings of reality and the various relationships we form with technology. Their works challenge our prescriptions of knowledge, control, and what it means to be human in an age of advanced technology. Their large scale installation Borrowed Light is currently on view at the Barbican, London.

Troika was formed in 2003 by Eva Rucki (GE, 1976), Conny Freyer (GE, 1976) and Sebastien Noel (FR, 1977), who are all based in London. Their work is part of the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; MoMA, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Israel Museum, Jerusalem and Centre Pompidou, Paris.

HANS OP DE BEECK (BE, 1969) produces large installations, sculptures, lms, drawings, paintings, photographs and texts. His work is a re ection on our complex society and the universal questions of meaning and mortality that resonate within it. He regards man as a being who stages the world around him in a tragi-comic way. Above all, Op de Beeck is keen to stimulate the viewers’ senses, and invite them to really experience the image. He seeks to create a form of visual ction that delivers a moment of wonder, silence and introspection.

He currently has a solo exhibition at Het Scheepvaartmuseum, Amsterdam. Previously his work has been shown at Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels; PS1, NY; Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris; The Reina Sofia, Madrid; MACRO, Rome and the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London

ISAAC JULIEN CBE RA (UK, 1960) is a filmmaker and installation artist based in London. His multi-screen lm installations and photographs incorporate different artistic disciplines to create a poetic and unique visual language. His new series of photo collages Radioactive is based on his 2004 lm with the same title, inspired by Octavia Butler’s gripping sci- tale about a cyborg called Lilith Lyapo. Exploring her ‘mixed-race’ of human and technological originas, Julien stages his heroine through solarized landscapes and textures.

Recent solo exhibitions include Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town; Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris; MoMA, New York and Art Institute of Chicago. Julien’s work is held in collections that include Tate, London; MoMA New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. He was awarded the title Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s birthday honours, 2017 and made a Royal Academician in 2018.

ABOUT Boris Tellegen

Born in 1968, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Boris Tellegen (NL, 1968) began his artistic career in the 1980s, using his pseudonym DELTA. As a Graffiti artist, Tellegen treated the two-dimensional frame of the letter and the word as sculpture, bursting out or morphing into the wall, piercing its boundaries by adding a dimension. By combining the reliefs of his practice with his education in industrial design, he soon started to create three-dimensional work on the intersection of architecture, painting, sculpture and installation.

In his body of work made over a thirty-year span, Tellegen explores how to transcend the boundaries of walls by annexing, deconstructing and recomposing them, to ultimately disregard them in recent installations. Through the ever-fluctuating shape of his work, Tellegen continues to disrupt our perception of surface and space.

Boris Tellegen received his education in Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University of Delft (NL, 1988-94). Tellegen has exhibited widely in European, North American and Australian museums, institutions and galleries. Recent exhibitions include MIMA, Brussels (BE, 2017), Les Abattoirs, Toulouse (FR, 2016), Amsterdam Museum (NL, 2015) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (FR, 2014). Tellegen regularly creates commissioned sculptures in the public spaces. A recent example is a series of sculptures between Amersfoort and Utrecht in the framework of De Stijl’s centenary celebration (NL, 2017).

ABOUT Inti Hernandez

Inti Hernandez lives and works in between Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and Havana (Cuba).

The work of Inti Hernandez is embedded in the philosophy wherein life is defined as a perpetual flow of energy. In his view the question is no longer, “What can I pick out of this flow of energy to my personal liking and benefit?” but, "What could I contribute to this flow of life that is still missing?" Hernandez believes that by finding answers to this question your ideas will always be welcome and will allow you something in return.

Hernandez sees art as a medium to create conversation and dialogue. The very nature of his work embodies collaboration. He explores meanings and triggers reflection through his artistic process and through the interaction with those who engage with his work. The more ideas are adopted as another’s subject, the more energy they gather and the more they connect to something fundamental. When ideas mange to create conversations they become something undeniable.

Architecture and Industrial design are both disciplines very much interconnected with daily life. In his work Hernandez plays with their language and with their multidisciplinary habits. By doing so he ensures a special flavour of common sense in his results. Through this process Hernandez obtains vital impute out of the dialogue with people, their dreams, ideas, necessities, priorities, spontaneity and initiative. He sees art as an established institution, which can be developed into business cases and showcases so that many other interests can participate with it- supporting it and being supported by it and thus gaining a benefit from it.

ABOUT Muntean / Rosenblum

Muntean/Rosenblum consists of Markus Muntean (AT, 1962) and Adi Rosenblum (IL, 1962). Large-scale painting is one of the core aspects of their practice. However, they often expand their work by creating large installations with sculptural elements where performances are staged or films screened. In addition, they make drawings as well as collages with texts and photographs.

In their work, Muntean/Rosenblum mix references to art history and present-day popular culture. They mostly depict groups of apparently lethargic or melancholic young people in idle situations, which are either ordinary and everyday or mysterious and ambiguous. The often-dreamy scenes take place in rooms, public spaces or landscapes as if part of a film, presenting unresolved situations in the making. The characters seem to adopt postures copied from fashion magazines, or from paintings originating from the renaissance to the nineteenth century. Their work is frequently accompanied by captions or texts not-directly relating to the depicted scene, adding another layer of complexity. The artists themselves described their work as ‘precise ambiguity’. By playing with visual codes from the past and the present, Muntean/Rosenblum scrutinise the power of images and how these constitute an overwhelming collective memory.

Muntean/Rosenblum live and work in Vienna, the city where they met while studying at the end of the 1980s. The artists have collaborated since 1992. Their work has been exhibited widely in international museums, institutions and galleries. Recent solo exhibitions were at MAC, Coruña (2018); MOCAK, Krakow (2018); Parkview Museum, Beijing (2017); Institut für zeitgenössische Kunst, Nürnberg (2014); Tate Britain, London (2004); and De Appel (2002). Group exhibitions they recently participated in were, among others, at Kunsthaus Graz (2018); Nam June Paik Art Centre, Gyeonggi-do (2018); The Parkview Museum, Singapore (2017); Oude Kerk, Amsterdam (2016); and MAXXI, Rome (2016). Their work is included in both private and public collections, such as MoMA, NYC; the Burger Collection; and the Rubell Family Collection.
