Kostas Seremetis *Ready Steady Go!* Sept 10- Oct 23

Kostas Poster

READY…STEADY…GO!

Rock’n'Roll, Comics & Cartoons Crash into Fine Art at Boston-native Seremetis’s Solo Show

September 10, 2011   Artist Reception 6-9pm
Exhibition Runs Through October 23rd, 2011
Fourth Wall Project
132 Brookline Ave.  Boston MA
Fourth Wall Project is pleased to announce *READY…STEADY…GO!*… a solo art exhibition by Kostas Seremetis –paintings, sculptures, prints, and video– all exploding with his trademark superpotent abstract expressionist imagery. “I create contemporary fine art using iconic characters from pop culture, from Rock’n'Roll, film, comics and classic cartoons, ” says Seremetis. “I don’t feel paintings are individuals, they feel more like a group or gang… which explains why I repeat icons or images in different mediums and situations, to better amplify the body of work.”

A native son of Boston MA, Seremetis started his art career in local nightclubs and coffee shops in the early nineties (ex: Other Side Cafe, Axis/Avalon).  Semeretis moved to NY in 1996, where he still resides, and held his first New York Solo Show in 1997 (Mary Anthony Gallery). His most recent exhibition was at the Kindergarten Group Show in Modena, Italy alongside Delta, Mode2, Os Gemeos, Tom Sachs, and Futura 2000,  curated by Giorgio de Mitri. Seremetis’s work is coveted and collected worldwide, and he counts some heavyhitters as fans (and customers), such as Ian Astbury of THE CULT, who declared Kostas is “the Rauschenberg of our generation,” and Darren Aronofsky who calls Kostas “an exceptional artist.”
Pieces in the exhibition include a free standing, 9-foot sculpture of 5-point star, made of police barricades, multiple colorful and abstract Mickey Mouse palette-knife paintings; a palette-knife painting mashing Felix The Cat’s face atop the Black Panther; paintings on paper including Captain America masks with skulls! and Batman cowls with plastic fangs!  Eight new “comic book covers series” (editions of 25), each a masterful mashup: Wolverine/Jim Morrison. Wonder Woman/Frida Kahlo. Black Panther/RZA, Master of Kung Fu/Jimi Hendrix and more; and looped on a monitor will be TRILOGY – a visual and aural collage consisting of the Star Wars Trilogy; Seremetis edited this 126 minute film, taking the left third of Star Wars, the middle third of Empire Strikes Back and the right third of Return of the Jedi, synchronizing them to magical effect.
Kostas Seremetis has exhibited internationally in Galleries and Museums (Trienalle Museum/Milan, Anonymous Gallery/New York, V1 Gallery/Copenhagen, Parco Gallery & KaiKai Kiki/ Japan), Film Festivals/Screenings (Sydney Underground Film Festival/ Sep 2011 /Cinematheque Tanger, Cinema Riff/Morocco)

Core77 on Human Powered Works

This past Friday was opening night for Human Powered Works over at Fourthwall. Design resource, Core77, was present documenting the event and following up with a nicely done write-up, “Fouthwall x Silver Oris: Human Powered Works.”  You still have plenty of time to check this group show out as it will be on display at the gallery through August 28th.

Taki 183, graffiti patriarch and foreword author in “The History of American Graffiti,” will be exclusively signing copies of the book this week in NYC.  Co-authors, Roger Gastman and friend of ours Caleb Neelon, will also be present at “The Hole” for the event.  For our previous coverage related to “The History of American Graffiti” hit the links below:

Wu-Wear Promo circa ’94

This video was promotional material for Wu-Wear back in ’94, swarm of killer bees turned entrepreneurs.  For all of you who didn’t know, street-wear brand Rocksmith has resurrected the Wu-Wear Empire, collaborating with the group on a present day line that you can find in-store here at Bodega.  Catch a couple pieces from the collection.

UP THERE from Jon on Vimeo.

This documentary captures the life of artists whose work consists of hand painting large scale advertisements in New York City – former Employee of the Month – Ether worked for Colossal Media a couple years back. They use the grid system to quickly bang out hand painted sides of buildings. Unfortunately for them the craft is slowly losing traction due to companies finding more efficient methods such as printing and hanging vinyl substitutes.  Props to the folks behind this, shedding light on a dimension of life that is all too often overlooked by the public.

Fourth Wall Project : Zsuzsanna Szegedi – “Temporal Works”

June 2 – June 26, 2011
Opening reception:
Friday, June 10th

Fourth Wall Project is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Zsuzsanna Szegedi titled Temporal Works.

Temporal Works uses the natural world as a departure point to explore the idea of transience in a durational medium. The collection of video, sculptural and performance work investigates the connection between the audience, artist and the ephemerality of the art being created. Viewers become participants as they get up close, touch and interact with the work.

“Eventually the collaborative effort — be it active or passive — shapes the outcome of this project.”

Trace with Me is a single-channel projection which invites the viewer to step into the frame and co-create a drawing by following a projected rhythm and pattern. With the original maker removed, it is a private meditation.

A large-scale drawing performance, Erase with Me, incorporates the Fourth Wall Projects’ storefront windows and emphasizes the process of removal. The actual drawing that takes a few days to complete is made solely to be destroyed in front of an audience within hours. As participants erase and wash away marks to transform the so-called “finished” drawing, the status of “complete” becomes arbitrary. This performance will take place June 10th at the opening reception and again on June 24th.

Zsuzsanna Szegedi moved to the U.S. from Hungary in 1997 after attending Janus Pannonius University. She received a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design and currently teaches there. She has had solo exhibitions at the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA and the Danube Museum in Esztergom, Hungary. She recently finished a 6-month residency at Samsøn where she concentrated on experimental video works. Her work was recently included in the Boston CyberArts Festival and at the St. Botolph Club.

Gallery Hours: Wed- Friday 1-6pm Sunday 12:30-5pm.
