"Departure is an immersive installation by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota, which explores ideas of displacement, time and the entanglements of life. The work has been specially commissioned for the opening of the Jameel Arts Centre.

Working with large quantities of yarn, Shiota creates immersive web-like structures that take over entire rooms. Building on her experience growing up in Japan and moving to Berlin in the 1990s, her work often touches on the notion of travel, belonging and the complexity of the human condition.

In this particular installation, Chiharu works with traditional abra boats, referencing the history of the Dubai Creek and the city’s identity as a meeting point of people, goods and ideas.

Drawn largely from the Art Jameel Collection, Artist’s Rooms is a series of solo exhibitions by influential, innovative artists, with particular focus on practitioners from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa. These capsule shows are collaborative: curated in dialogue with the artist, with some presentations including new commissions. Winter 2018-19 features rooms by Maha Malluh, Mounira Al Solh, Lala Rukh and Chiharu Shiota in galleries 1, 2, 3 and 10."

El trabajo de Giaconi tiene lugar en el campo de la escultura, la instalación y principalmente el dibujo, que opera como el corazón de toda su producción y punto de partida para generar intervenciones espaciales e imágenes que se mueven a través de la estética del caos y la investigación procesal. La arquitectura, la estructura, la memoria y el entorno son todos elementos clave en la práctica del artista, que se centra en proponer experiencias que crean tensión entre conceptos opuestos como construcción y destrucción; nacimiento y muerte; confinamiento y libertad; profundidad y superficie; soñar y despertar.

Giaconi’s work takes place in the field of sculpture, installation and mainly drawing, which operates as the heart of all his production and starting point to generate spatial interventions and imagery that moves across  the aesthetics of chaos and procedural investigation. Architecture, structure, memory and environment are all key elements in the artist’s practice, which focuses on proposing experiences that build tension between opposite concepts like construction and destruction; birth and death; confinement and freedom; depth and surface; dream and awakening.

En Lounge, su segunda muestra individual en NF/ NIEVES FERNANDEZ, Pipo Hernández Rivero juega a resignificar los roles de la obra de arte y, en especial, la pintura en el ámbito del confort doméstico. Con el fin de perturbar el orden cognitivo establecido para las obras de arte, Pipo Hernández Rivero trabaja con apropiaciones que abundan desde la historia del arte hasta los elementos que componen tradicionalmente el ámbito doméstico. De este modo, a través de un conjunto de re significaciones, las piezas transportan el espectador a un ambiente doméstico, dónde la obra de arte convive en el espacio de la intimidad, subvirtiendo su propia naturaleza pública y expositiva.

Lounge is Rivero's second solo exhibition at NF/ NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ, plays with shifting the presumed roles for the artwork itself and, most especially for painting, within the household environment. Pipo Hernández Rivero hijacks several elements from Art History until traditional components of the domestic setting, aiming ultimately to disturb the cognitive order established for works of art. In this sense, through a set of meaning alterations, the works displayed transport the observer to a domestic scene, where the artworks inhabits a space of intimacy, subverting its own public and exhibitive nature.

The notion of cyclical time, common to past civilizations, is now considered archaic, for according to Romanian intellectual, Mircea Eliade modern societies have a linear understanding of time. This contemporary understanding considers progress as the only possible outcome and therefore does not take into account repeated cycles of collapse. 

The contemplation of the life and death of civilisations can be traced back to the medieval Tunisian-born historian Ibn Khaldoun, who suggested that historical cycles function in a loop, starting as Umran Badaoui (bedouin civilisation) evolving into Umran Hadari (urban civilisation) before collapsing. Recent studies by American historian, Joseph Tainter on the collapse of complex societies, like the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Mayas, show there are several possible causes for their downfall, including natural disasters, wars, and epidemics. But one theory can be singled out. When a society becomes highly stratified, it is more likely to fall, as the cost of maintaining it is high. In the aftermath of the collapse of modernism or as Bruno Latour actually suggested we have never been modern, scientists affirm that since the anthropocene era, our future decline will be caused by an impending ecological disaster due to global warming. If -human beings, nature, and even history - functions cyclically, it is possible to think about the limits of progress and the cost that entails. 

The exhibition will present 18 projects in total, including 8 commissioned artworks along 10 produced works by artists from Lebanon and Mexico. The meeting of the two scenes allowed the exchange of geographical perspectives on the theme. This project includes residencies in Beirut (BAR-Beirut Art Residency) and Guadalajara (PAOS GDL).
