“When on a scale of 1:1, art not only describes life, it is one with it.” 

e-flux

1-1_logo

Not interested in showcasing art, 1:1 would be better called a stopover for art than an exhibition, since 1:1 art can never be wholly contained in the time frame of an event.

The focus of the 1:1 stopover is the relationship between art and life, and art and institution. When on a scale of 1:1, art not only describes life, it is one with it. This relation can be disrupted by the institution, which is often thought to divorce art from life. Not so, however, when the institution itself tries to establish a similar one-to-one relationship with art by no longer merely representing it, but instead treating it as a partner.

Make Love, Not Art

“I don’t want it to be essentially the same – I want it to be exactly the same. Because the more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel.” Andy Warhol

“I have nothing to say and I’m saying it. The highest purpose is to have no purpose at all.” John Cage

“I have no special message. I wish I did. It would be great if I had one.” Andy Warhol

Make Love, Not Art

WJ-S Paris

For one week, artists from around the world have been testing the new REMOTE WJ-S MIXER. They have been taking over our computers in Paris. Join us for a DEMO to discover this new project, projected on the three windows of the Gallery des Ecluses in Paris.
The REMOTE WJ-S MIXER is a virtual platform, developed by James Hudson, running as a cloud service, allowing an international online community of artists to control screens at a distance, and create web performances which are projected into the public space.
