HiE Gallery's From Elsewhere to Here

May 24 2011 / Tuesday

HiE Gallery From Elsewhere to Here

American 
artist
 William 
Lemon
 III 
presents 
Forces,
 an
 "exhibition 
within 
the
 exhibition" 
in
 the
 central
 gallery
 space,
 where
 he
 will 
perform 
a
 special 
musical 
piece 
on
 opening 
night.
 During 
his
 stint 
as 
an
 art 
handler,
 Lemon
 III 
(shown
 in
 our 
previous 
exhibition, 
Absurdism) 
searches
 for
 the
 proper 
artistic 
alchemic
 ingredients
 in 
order 
to 
create 
what 
he 
calls
 his 
"voodoo
 collages."


Exposed
 to 
famous 
works 
of 
art 
that 
were 
left 
to 
sit 
in 
warehouses, 
he
 secretly 
cut
 slivers 
off 
the
 back
 edge 
of 
some
 canvases
 and 
integrated 
these
 fragments 
into 
his 
multimedia 
collages,
 which 
gave 
the 
entombed 
art
 life
 again 
and 
hence 
proffered 
a 
metaphor 
of 
the 
commercialization 
and
 coveting 
of 
art 
and 
objects. 
The
 results 
are
 stunning
 pieces, 
which 
combine 
their 
sacred 
dimension 
with 
Lemon's 
own
 visual
 symbolism.
 Lemon's 
Forces 
show
 at
 HiE 
features 
other
 works 
from
 the 
past 
and
 present, 
creating 
fluid 
sentences 
of 
block
prints, 
drawings
 and
 tapestries.


We 
also 
have 
the 
honor 
of 
presenting 
three 
new 
works 
by
 esteemed
 Los
 Angeles‐based 
artist 
John
 Outterbridge, 
as
 well as 
two 
masterpieces 
only 
shown
 in 
Europe
 until 
now. 
Outterbridge's 
works 
are 
in 
the 
collections 
of 
major 
museums
 such 
as 
MOCA 
and 
LACMA, 
and 
will 
be 
a 
major 
part 
of 
next 
year's 
Pacific 
Standard
 Time
 project 
of 
the 
Getty 
Research
 Institute.

Massachusetts
 native
 Joshua
 von 
Nonn
 began 
drawing
 and 
painting 
in 
2007, 
with
 the 
motivational 
support
 of 
his
 friend,
 James
McLeod. 
"I 
attempt
 a 
spontaneous 
connection 
to 
the
 canvas
 to
 try
 and
 capture 
the
 internal
 thought. 
A
 word that 
arbitrarily 
pops 
in 
my 
head, 
from
 a 
book, 
song, 
newspaper
 article 
or 
conversation
 will
 influence 
the 
direction I 
take. 
A
 color 
scheme 
which
 I 
find
 fitting 
may
 then 
develop. 
When
 form 
appears
 early
 on 
it 
tends 
to
 disrupt 
the 
stream
 of
 consciousness. 
In 
turn 
I 
paint 
over 
the 
form
 wholly 
or 
partially, 
reasserting 
the
n on­ linear 
movement 
of 
thought."



The
 conflict 
between 
nature 
and 
artifice 
is 
at 
the 
core
 of 
Emily 
Smith, 

a
 recent 
MFA 
graduate, 
whose 
works
 were
 exhibited
 at
 HiE's
 Venice 
from 
Then 
to 
Now 
show. 
Exhibiting
 for
 the
 first 
time
 in
 the
 United 
States, 
French 
artist 
Année
 Angevin­Djian 
presents 
"Papillon 
Blanc," 
a 
dreamy
 video 
in 
which 
oranges 
bring 
dead
 bodies 
back 
to 
life. 
N.
 Agyapong

presents 
her 
mask/written 
portrait 
and 
David 
Quadrini 
presents 
a 
new 
painting 
that 
was 
created 
specifically 
for
 this
 exhibition.



In 
addition,
 four 
contemporary 
photographers 
constitute 
yet 
another
 segment
 of 
From
 Elsewhere 
to 
Here
 in
 the
 nine
 glass 
"vitrines" 
and 
on 
the 
mirroring 
parallel 
wall. 
In
 association 
with
 Fahey/Klein 
Gallery,
 we 
are 
pleased
 to
 exhibit
photographic 
works 
by 
Mark
 Laita. 
Laita 
travelled
 across
 the 
lower 
48 
states 
of 
the 
USA
 over
 a 
seven‐year 
period
 to
 create 
his 
initial 
body
 of
 work. 

Using 
an 
8x10 
camera, 
he 
created 
memorable 
portraits 
of 
people 
who
 are 
each
 uniquely
 representative 
of 
their 
characters. 
These 
works 
are
 cumulated 
in 
a 
fascinating 
body 
of
 photos 
and 
resulting
 book,

entitled 
Created 
Equal 
from 
which 
a 
selection 
of 
ten
 pieces 
is 
presented 
at 
HiE. 

Laita 
continually 
adds
 onto 
this 
body
 of
 work 
to 
this 
very 
day. 

Vanessa 
Atlan, 
whose 
works 
were
 previously 
shown
 at 
HiE,
 returns 
to 
the
 gallery 
with 
her
 "Homage 
to 
Miralda." 


The
 photographic 
abstractions
 of
 director 
Pen
 Densham
 reveal 
their
 subtle 
poetry 
with

underlying
 natural
 patterns.


Finally, 
to
 cap
 off 
the
 show,
 the
 cult 
British 
music 
photographer
 Lawrence
 Watson

presents 
a 
selection
 of 
his 
astonishing 
portraits 
of 
the 
singer
 Grace 
Jones.


Here is Elsewhere is a project space dedicated to exploring the hidden history that links artists from "Here" (Southern California) with artists from "Elsewhere" (the rest of the world).

Los Angeles has become in the last decades one of the world capitals of the arts. If Angeleno artists are now at the top of the art scene, their perception and influence abroad is still to be researched, understood and exhibited in its full length. Hence the idea of Here is Elsewhere: to (re)create, stimulate and increase the dialogue between artists from here and from elsewhere and from different fields and from different generations. Exhibitions, presentations, talks and performances will be organized at the end of each project as a result of these original collaborations, and in collaboration with cultural institutions, museums and galleries.
