until 14.10. | #1607ARTatBerlin | pavlov’s dog presents from 13th September 2017 the exhibition “RFD ( Recipes for Disaster )” by the artist duo ioulex.
The artist duo ioulex dives deep into the urban space of New York, the metropolis they call home. Similar to Michel Foucault’s heterotopias a mythical-creative space arises against the background of the real city, held together by red lines resembling blood vessels. These lines connect the artists and their ideas, locate them in a network of affiliations and make them an entity, that is independent from the real space.
Thus we follow the artist Danny McDonald as he inhabits his alter ego Mindy Vale, the time traveling witch and maelstrom of malevolent destruction. Or we reimagine costume designer Christian Joy as the shrimp obsessed nostalgic Satin Richjoy, played by her husband, musician Jason P. Grisell. Other muses and instigators include legendary performance artist and musician Kembra Pfahler, choreographer Mariangela Lopez, ballerina Isabella Boylston and visual artist Daniele Frazier.
This exhibition examines the chaotic permutations of reoccurring accomplices and tries to dissect the creative process that lies beneath.
ioulex, (Julia Koteliansky and Alexander Kerr), 1977, Moscow (Russia) and Boston (USA), live and work in New York. Graduated from Parsons School of Design. Exhibited at Audio Visual Arts gallery in New York, De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam, Colette in Paris; films screened at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan and Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome.
