Phil Chang — Studio, Affect
7 July – 11 August 2012
Opening reception: Saturday, 7 July 2012, 7-9pm

Pepin Moore
933 Chung King Rd.
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Pepin Moore is proud to present Studio, Affect, an exhibition of new works by Phil Chang, on view from 7 July through 11 August 2012. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, 7 July from seven to nine in the evening.

As his third and final project that examines the various implications of affect, Phil Chang includes works in Studio, Affect that obliquely address the role of the studio in contemporary culture. Studio, Affect includes various depictions of artist’s studios — photographs of book pages depicting Francis Bacon’s disheveled space, Giacometti in his studio studying his wife, Richter sitting on an office chair — alongside images from catalogs that rely on tropes of the studio. Also included are images Chang has produced which depict his own production. These include photographs of laser prints that have served as studies, and the running sheets (offset prints) from the production of his artist book from 2010. In total, Studio, Affect relies on an array of images presented in an array of formats — chromogenic prints, silver gelatin prints, laser prints, pigment prints, stencil prints, and offset prints — that are hinged within frames. This decision has to do with a desire for “looseness” in presentation that formally and structurally addresses the political and economic implications of the studio.

This series of work by Fin Serck-Hanssen looks at life inside the walls of eight Norwegian prisons of varying degrees of severity. From the open prison at Bastøy to the more harsh lock up conditions at Ullersmo. But inside is always inside.

In the book project A Narrow Scene of Hypothetical Circumstances we access a visual universe revolving around dismembered pieces of familiar objects. Sketches, pictures and materials are united into a steady flow of everyday examination, in which apparent contradictions — painstaking exactitude and violence, empathy and calculation — bubble away beneath the surface. Rearrangement, representation and repression melt together on the border between construction and collapse, with an elegant sense of seriousness. The works are supplemented with texts by Friedrich Tietjen, Caroline Ugelstad, Leif Magne Tangen and Christopher Muller.

Joanne Oldham has quietly been making art in a range of mediums for several decades. Though mostly known for a scattering of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy releases, including the iconic cover for I See a Darkness, the vast majority of this prolific artist and writer’s work has never been seen outside of her circle of family and friends. Intensely personal, warm, and often terrifying, her art is playful and mysterious, existing in a space of constant conflict. The debut issue of Good Morning dedicates the entire issue to a selection of work done over the last 25 years showcasing Oldham’s unique vision. Collages, paintings, drawings, as well as excerpts from Oldham’s memoir of growing up in the south in the 1950s are included, as well as biographical notes written by the artist herself.

When you meet Myung Feyen, you are never quite sure at what point everyday life spills over into art. Her letters arrive in archaic envelopes, handwritten or typed on an old fashioned typewriter on paper salvaged from an archive or a bankrupt stationery store. Such a letter becomes a unique ‘object’, a piece of graphic design. Her texts, however intentionally mundane, are meticulously crafted, often with an unexpected poetical twist. A correspondence regarding an upcoming appointment can easily turn into a small collection of poetry or visual art.

Such a correspondence cannot be distinguished from the projects, which she presents as works of art. She has a collection of passport photographs of people who have played an important role in her life in some way, accumulated since her early youth. She takes photographs of her parents on every occasion she meets them, keeping the photos in an archive along with the date they were taken. For years she has been making lists of everybody who has come over to visit her. She also creates diagrams of this information — strange calendars drawn on the walls of exhibition spaces. She collects water and sand of places she or her friends have visited. These samples are packed and kept in a standard uniform method and then documented. Bit by bit, an atlas containing the voyages of Myung Feyen and her friends comes into being.

Issue 113, Memory, includes a feature interview with Toronto-based artist Derek Sullivan, by Saelan Twerdy; essays by writers including Carol Zemel, on Yael Bartana’s And Europe Will be Stunned…, Scott McLeod, on the 8th Mercosul Biennial, Michelle Kasprzak on Social Media and Art, Chloé Roubert on the Reflecting Absence memorial in New York, and Allison Collins and Eli Bornowsky on Pacific Standard Time; and exhibition reviews from Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Charlottetown, Waterloo, Venice, Rotterdam and Istanbul. The Noteworthy section by Benjamin Bruneau critically explores the phenomena art blogging. For the artist project in this issue, the collective CN Tower Liquidation dematerialized the first issue of C Magazine, published in the winter of 1983/84, and cast its destroyed remnants in a polymer resin cube that appears on the inside back cover. This issue also includes book reviews of Art Metropole’s new “…by Artists” anthology Commerce by Artists edited by Luis Jacob, and Grant Kester’s latest book, The One and the Many: Contemporary Collaborative Art in a Global Context.
