<< arbre de vie >>

Marlie Mul and Jean-Michel Wicker "arbre de vie" – 5 metre long tree of life collage for Jean-Michel Wicker's book #picturebook1

Excerpt from the book:

the B-interviews : arbre de vie

First of all we set out to regularly meet up in Berlin during a specific period of time in 2016 for Marlie to in an informal way do interviews with Jean-Michel that were to become a part of this book. This would only happen in the afternoon and in pleasant and varied locations. The B-interviews – the B as a play on the B for Berlin, also as a reference to a series of interviews done by Calvin Tomkins with Marcel Duchamp in 1964, called ‘The Afternoon Interviews’.

Because both of us were always travelling throughout this period, these meet-ups were sporadic and so each time we met time had passed by and there would always be new experiences, ideas and influences to discuss.

We realised our incapacity to affirm anything, instead preferring a sort of meandering through information. We decided then to opt for the form of an arbre de vie* as metaphor of this loose process. Like this we could appreciate all single topics and let them remain in their apparent disconnectedness.

<< OUR HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR STREET >>

I invited Life Gallery to organise an exhibition/a living room next to the exhibition "Arbeidsvitaminen" at Vilma Gold in London in February/March 2015. "Our House in the Middle of Your Street" was a living room with a carpeted floor, artworks by Vittorio Brodmann, Manuela Gernedel, Ann Hirsch, Anne Imhof and ​Holly White, 2 sofa's and a Playstation. Weekly events were hosted by Emily Jones, Holly White, and Oscar Khan.

Press text by Harry Burke:

“In Summer 2013 I met Oscar one evening. He wanted to cut his hair. I said he could come round and borrow my clippers. He came round to borrow my clippers but for some reason I wasn’t there. Maybe one of us didn’t have a phone. My housemates were there playing video games in the living room. Oscar had a bottle of wine with him. When my housemates left the next month Oscar moved in.

Later on we started a gallery in our living room. We no longer live at that house. Our House in the Middle of Your Street groups paintings, drawings and sculpture by five artists, based in London, Germany, Switzerland and the USA: Vittorio Brodmann, Manuela Gernedel, Ann Hirsch, Anne Imhof, and Holly White. The majority of the artworks are relegated to the walls as the centre of the gallery becomes a social space.”

Events Programme:

Sunday 22nd February 6-9p.m. – "Just grab my hand and don’t ever drop it". Taylor Swift Deep Listening Party, hosted by Emily Jones and Holly White.

Saturday 7th March – Craft/Embroidery Workshop, hosted by Holly White.

Saturday 14th March – PoeTRY, an event of poem, hosted by Oscar Khan.

for Silly Canvas / Centre For Style, 2015

"Silly Canvas"
Centre for Style exhibition at Utopian Slumps, Melbourne.

From the brief by Centre for Style: "Silly Canvas invites a selection of practitioners to create new work, restricted to the parameters of two 70cm x 170cm rectangles of material attached to one another. These works will operate as both flat dresses for a runway performance on the opening night and as static wall hangings for the duration of the exhibition.

The invited practitioners express various engagements with fabric and bodies within their practice and have been invited to challenge their processes through the constraints of the exhibition's premise. You are free to use whatever combinations of materials you desire as long as the work adheres to the prescribed dress measurements: two 70cm x 170cm dimensions of material with openings for head and limbs ."
