Edgar Orlaineta at KaBe Contemporary

May 20, 2016

(english below)

 

La galería KaBe Contemporary presenta por primera vez al artista Mexicano Edgar Orlaineta con la exposición, Muscheln und Schirme / Seashells and Umbrellas.  Jean Arp; Sophie Taeuber-Arp; Jan Tschichold. Meudonval-Fleury: (Selbstverl.), 1939. Edgar Orlaineta plantea en su obra una investigación crítica y reflexiva acerca del modernismo, específicamente en un momento de correlación entre arte, diseño y artesanía, el cual involucra el proceso de producción, materialidad, función del objeto y la estética del mismo.

En este proyecto el artista muestra la interpretación y exploración sobre el trabajo colaborativo entre la artista Sophie Taeuber-Art, su esposo Hans Arp y Jan Tschichold, para crear Arp´s Book o el Libro de Arp, que integra los dibujos Seashells and Umbrellas de Sophie Taeuber-Art realizados en 1939, y los poemas de Hans Arp. Jan Tshichold diseñó el libro, y se imprimió en Checoslovaquia. La estética del libro como objeto
artístico, destaca por su lenguaje como forma gestual y su proceso de creación. Orlaineta revisa el trabajo de Sophie Taeuber-Art, quien desarrolló un lenguaje moderno compuesto de variadas expresiones de arte útil, diseño, ilustración e incluso danza como productor de significaciones. La publicación es prácticamente el soporte que muestra distintos objetos, y se vuelve el medio para hablar de una poesía que explora y cuestiona el mundo.

Desde una postura crítica y reflexiva, el trabajo de Orlaineta se basa en el libro de Arp, y nos muestra una forma de ver la historia e indagar en ella, para luego reinterpretarla durante el desarrollo de un proyecto artístico. La exposición es una remembranza a un momento histórico de un trabajo avant-garde, que cuestiona la realidad y anhela la libertad de una época histórica que de alguna manera sigue vigente. definitivamente una gran exposición para visitar del 14 de Mayo al 15 de Julio en KaBe Contemporary en Miami, Florida.

The KaBe Contemporary gallery presents for the first time the work of the Mexican artist Edgar Orlaineta with the exhibition Muscheln und Schirme/Seashells and Umbrellas.

With his work, Orlaineta  proposes a critical and reflexive research about modernism; specifically, a moment of correlation among art, design and crafts, which involves the process of production, materiality, the object’s function and the aesthetics of itself.

 

In this project, the artist shows the interpretation and exploration about collaborative work among the artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp, her husband Hans Arp and Jan Tschichold to create the Arp’s Book, which incorporates the drawings called  Seashells and Umbrellas by Sophie Taeuber-Arp elaborated in 1939, and Hans Arp’s poetry. Jan Tschichold designed and printed the book in Czechoslovakia. The aesthetics of the book as an art object outstands for its language as a gestural form and by its elaboration process.

Orlaineta goes through the work of Sophie Taeuber-Arp who developed a modern language confirmed by various expressions of utilitarian art, design, illustration and even dance as a producer of significations. The publication is practically, the support that shows different objects and becomes the media to talk about a poetry that explores and questions the world.

 

From a critical and reflexive posture, the work of Orlaineta is based on the Arp’s Book and it gives us a new way of seeing history, to indagate it, and later on, to reinterpret it as part of the development of the artistic project.


The exhibition is a remembrance of a historical period of avant-garde works that question reality and aspires freedom in a time that somehow is still valid. It is definitely a great show to visit from May 14th until July 15th at KaBe Contemporary in Miami, Florida.
