SHARJAH: Maraya Art Centre announced its upcoming exhibition, ‘Between the Visible and the Invisible’. Curated by Dr Azadeh Fatehrad, featuring the works of a group of seven international artists that include Pia Sandström (Stockholm), Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin (London), Chooc Ly Tan (Paris), Nikolaus Gansterer (Vienna), Leah Fusco (London), Vladimir Nikolic (Belgrade) and Oliver Ressler (Vienna).

The exhibition’s opening will be held on Saturday 15 September, 2018, at 7pm and will host a live performance by Chooc Ly Tan at 8pm. The show will run until Saturday 24 November.

The exhibition ‘Between the Visible and Invisible’ refers to innovative forms of artistic practice in relation to memory, time and space – a moment when nothing is certain, concrete or stable; and how artistic practice could capture this sense of being ‘in-between’.

 The exhibition will take the visitor through a journey of individual memories which may refer to private encounters but collectively addresses a form of change and transformation. It does this through the use of ephemeral mediums (sound and video), and, in the case of still images, through the methodologies that have been used to create them. All the artwork included refers to temporality, to something that is about to happen which is not present or visible yet, to a potential to become something else.

The show stages a constellation of some of the most thought-provoking contemporary works developed through artistic research, inquiring into collective notions of memory, time and space. It is organised around three thematics: Disappearance, Suspension and Becoming. ‘Disappearance’ focuses on the ephemerality of recorded memory via sound or image; ‘Suspension’ expresses a presence that is invisible yet substantive, thinkable through feelings, and ‘Becoming’ concerns the mediation between bodily drawings and the cohabitation in holding a certain space through limited time. In sum, viewers are able to experience a unique reality which is not graspable otherwise, inviting them to journey through the unknown land of ‘in-betweenness’.

‘Between the Visible and Invisible’ will present multidisciplinary artworks, among them, the selection includes ‘Psychoréographies – a performative inquiry for inner and outer spaces’ (Nikolaus Gansterer), ‘People in Trouble’ (Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin), ‘Disobey to the Dance of Time’ and ‘Not Such a Hasty Hush Boom’ (Chooc Ly Tan), ‘Anubumin’ and ‘The Visible and the Invisible’ (Oliver Ressler), ‘Northeye’ (Leah Fusco), ‘He happened not to be there’ (Pia Sandström), and ‘Train passing’ (Vladimir Nikolic).

The work of these selected artists has previously been exhibited in international galleries and museums around the world, including Hasselblad Foundation, Gothenburg (Sweden); Musée de l’Élysée, Lausanne; Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Tate Modern, London; National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), Bucharest; Gasworks Gallery, London; Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), Glasgow; Wyspa Institute of Art, Gdask (Poland); Lentos Art Museum, Linz; Townhouse Gallery, Cairo; Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (CAAC), Seville; SALT Galata, Istanbul; Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm; Kiasma – Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki; Beijing Minsheng Art Museum; Museum Folkwang, Essen; Shanghai Biennale; Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (the Netherlands); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and Tate Britain, London. The artists’ research has also been disseminated through a number of books and journals, such as De Gruyter (Berlin/Boston), Institut für Moderne Kunst (Nuremberg), Kehrer Verlag (Heidelberg), Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo & RM (Mexico City) and Mack (London).
