More Information

Caithness artist, Joanne B Kaar has been inspired by events reported in the John O’Groat Journal 100 years ago, when daring aviators, Harry G Hawker and Commander K Mackenzie Grieve, left St. John’s Newfoundland, attempting to cross the Atlantic non-stop. 
Engine problems resulted in them ditching in the Atlantic. Rescued, they were brought to Scrabster, Caithness, in the north of Scotland,  where a crowd had gathered to welcome them. They were later decorated with the Cross of the Royal Air Force.

In celebration of these aviators and the warm reception they received, we are connecting with Newfoundland again! For news and updates of paper aeroplane exchange events organised near you during 2019, visit the website of participating organisations:

Through this material, it is a philosophical link that she weaves between nature, art and life. The diversity of plants, their history and their therapeutic qualities are all aspects that guide her work.
Viviane Fontaine, a Geneva artist based in Cerniat en Gruyère, has also collaborated in the founding of the International Paper Triennial, which has been held at the Musée de Charmey since 1993.

The Muse Project

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from July 13, 2019 until September 01, 2019.

Artist

Mary Heebner and Jeff Shelton

Opening Hours

Wednesday - Sunday 12 pm - 5 pm
Thursday opened until 8 pm

Location

Art, Design, & Architecture Museum
UC Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA 93106-7130

More Information


In line with the AD&A Museum’s drive to investigate the outcomes of art and architecture’s crosspollination, this exhibition focuses on the interdisciplinary creative process that characterizes the work of artist Mary Heebner and architect Jeff Shelton. Both Heebner and Shelton’s practices revolve around cultures and traditions that developed in the Mediterranean basin centuries ago: While Heebner dissects images of Roman and Greek figures in hand made paper collages and handmade paper, watermarked books to “bring them back to life,” Shelton interprets popular Spanish building traditions in architectures and designs that expose his “less is more” sensitivity.

To illustrate the artist and the architect’s integrative working methodologies, the exhibition features Heebner’s studies along with a few works from the Museum’s architecture collection that the artist herself has chosen. Likewise, Shelton’s projects are presented with his own selections from the institution’s fine art holdings. In this context, for example, Heebner’s Veiled/Unveiled series, a set of large collages juxtaposing different facial angles of deities from the Antiquity, appear along the sensual house and garden that Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx designed for Burton Tremaine in Serena Beach, California. In a similar way, the colorful, methodical patterns that enliven the tiles and textiles that Shelton uses in many of his buildings’ interiors accompany a distinctive Claes Oldenburg’s print on graph paper.

As a result, a field of correspondences suggesting the reciprocity between art and architecture’s conception emerges. The Muse Project is an invitation to engage with the materials presented, imagining ulterior connections among them. With it, the exhibition highlights creativity’s relational nature, all the while it questions the scholastic and widely accepted division between the disciplines involved.

What does it mean to exist? How do you exist? Do you have a reason?

In the film At Eternity’s Gate/created by Julian Scnabel, the actor Willem Dafoe, playing Vincent van Gogh, says: Existence cannot be without a reason. Whether Vincent van Gogh actually expressed this sentence or not – it strikes a chord in me.

Existence has to do with being alive – with being.

Since the early seventies the French philosopher Henri Bergson’s theories on duration, a theory on consciousness and time, understood as free will, pure mobility, has been my guide line.  Duration can only be grasped through intuition, getting back to the things themselves and experience without our habitual, utilitarian thinking. Inner duration cannot be divided.  It is in possession of quality and not just quantifiable. Unlike every second of time, units of time, duration never meets two moments the same in its unfolding succession.

Our power of intuition is our most powerful source for obtaining true knowledge. Even though life is meant to be lived and maybe never quite known, the existential moments of duration experiencing intuition is what guides my work in an attempt to express the grasp of a moment, which will never be the same anymore in its unfolding succession. To me existence finds a reason in the creating act, where I experience duration.

The Danish artist Anne Vilsboell's exhibition at Galeri Beddington in the summer of 2019 shows selected painted moments that the artist wishes to communicate with the viewer.
