AMOA-Arthouse, 700 Congress Avenue Austin Texas USA
Sterling Allen, Facundo Argañaraz, Strauss Bourque LaFrance, Katja Mater, Christopher Samuels, Justin Swinburne and J. Parker Valentine.
Through the creation of complex visual narratives, the international artists in this exhibition present provocative abstract forms that investigate art’s potential to interrupt and/or reconstruct elements of everyday life. Each of the seven  artists test the boundaries of working abstractly, with found objects and images, reformed digital technologies, as well as reference traditional techniques. While exploring the potential of objects in space, their ideas coalesce around an opposition to fixed forms. By encouraging examinations of context and allowing for ambiguous formal and narrative combinations to inform one another, Evidence of Houdini’s Return focuses on the value of abstraction in contemporary art discourse today.

25 November 2011 – 22 January 2012

Vieux-Grenadiers 10 Genève CH
with:  Rosa Barba, Pavel Büchler, Hollis Frampton, Louise Hervé et Chloé Maillet, Robert-Jan Lacombe, Chris Marker, Katja Mater, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Margaret Salmon, Hito Steyerl, Gitte Villesen, Akram Zaatari. Screenings: Chantal Akerman, James Benning, Brent Green, Isidore Isou, William E. Jones.
The project takes Chris Marker's "La Jetée" as a point of departure, and researches the notion of time and memory, and more specifically the relationship between image and mark, traces, traumatism.
The collective exhibition will allow to insert the film – like a Freudian mnesic trace, and as an early work overloaded with possible inspirations and formal as well as conceptual tracks of thoughts – in a dialogue with about 10 mainly recent works. These will offer different formats and materials – not only short films or installations, but also plastic works and a performance – allowing thus for a broadening of the reflection.
curated by Emilie Bujès and Katya García-Antón

In Tangible Time: Chasing the Invisible artists are brought together who work with the concept of time and make it tangible in a visual manner. In the selected works time is stretched, stapled, fragmented, reconstructed or show in relation to distance. Photography, installations, films, drawings and publications are part of the whole in which time is deconstructed and the approach of physics is ignored in favour of the imaginary. curated by Danielle van Zuijlen.
