Ennis House | Sebastian Acker
4’00″ video with sound, 2018 (ongoing)

Ennis House is a project about the various representations of one of the most used film locations in the world, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House in Los Angeles. The video combines found footage from over 20 movies, commercials, games and 3d renderings, which have been filmed in the building or based on it’s interiors since the 1930’s. Dialogues are removed and narratives deconstructed to focus on representations of the building and it’s fictional inhabitants, who can be seen moving through corridors, swimming across the pool or simply occupying the space. Some of the original sounds clips are used to synchronise clips from various sources – but only to suddenly disrupt suspense of disbelief and hence negotiate the relationship between actual space, film footage and sound. 

The Ennis House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Charles and Mabel Ennis’ Los Angeles residence in 1923. It is one of the most used film locations in the world and one of the most important examples of Mayan Revival Architecture.

“I have fallen in love with a tree in the middle of a giant parking lot in front of the Rose Bowl.

The tree was starved for water and oxygen due to the asphalt that surrounds it (there was a rather small tree pit). The stress from the lack of water and oxygen led to an increase of a variety of pests: anthracnose fungus, lace bugs, powdery mildew… The tree was also in grave danger from the cars that liked to park near it to benefit from its shade. Cars had hit and damaged the trunk, but the cambium had not yet been pierced and the tree still lived. But, it did not live an easy life.

I could not tolerate the outrageous insults that the beautiful tree was forced to endure. So, I decided to adopt the tree and devote myself to improving its life: watering the tree with giant water bags; installing tree guards to protect the tree from cars; and adorning the tree with giant earrings…

I spent many months lobbying the City and the Rose Bowl to remove the asphalt beneath the canopy of the tree, so that the tree would get more of the water and oxygen that it desperately needs. In September 2006, the Rose Bowl removed 400 square feet of asphalt beneath the tree and replaced it with mulch.

On July 30, 2007, the Rose Bowl placed a permanent boulder barrier around the tree. These boulders protect the tree from cars and provide seating for people to contemplate the beauty of the tree.

The tree had no chance to reproduce on its own, and there was no place for its seeds to grow in the sea of asphalt that surrounds it. This upset me greatly, and I decided to help the tree reproduce.

On February 16, 2007, the first tree baby appeared! Soon, after that there were 200 tree babies growing under the wonderful care of the Theodore Payne Foundation.

I am thrilled that many amazing people have adopted the tree babies. They are caring for them so that they will have easier and greener lives than their parent.

Many of the tree babies have been planted in public locations as public art sculptures. Plaques from the tree museum have been placed next to the tree babies in many of the public locations.

Check out the → interactive tree museum
And check out the → interactive tree baby maps to see where many of the tree babies are growing

In front of the USC Roski School of Art, a tree baby was adorned by a necklace consisting of sculptures made by students in response to the plight of urban trees and/or environmental renewal. Similar installations have taken place at Walden Elementary School, the Audubon Middle School, and the Walteria Elementary School.
In the Central Arroyo Seco Valley, the City of Pasadena, the Arroyo Seco Foundation, and a group of volunteers planted 17 tree babies – a grove of tree babies extremely close to the parent tree!

I would like to thank Darryl Dunn and Jess Waiters from the Rose Bowl; Steve Madison, Taka Suzuki, and Sid Tyler from the City of Pasadena; Lauri Firstenberg, Bettina Korek, Kris Lewis, and Sarah Williams from LAXART and For Your Art; the Theodore Payne Foundation; Susanne Vielmetter; Stephan Adamski; Liz Rubin; Sue Yank; Germaine Chang; Alison Goldberg; as well as many other important tree lovers, especially all of the tree baby parents.”

Letters from Panduranga | Nguyen Trinh Thi

exhibitions @ black flamingo: Letters from Panduranga by Nguyen Trinh Thi

during art berlin contemporary @ FAHRBEREITSCHAFT / haubrok foundation

opening September 11 2016 | 5-7pm

The essay film, made in the form of an anonymous exchange of letters between a man and a woman, was initially inspired by the fact that the government of Vietnam plans to build the country’s first two nuclear power plants in Ninh Thuan (formerly known as Panduranga), right at the spiritual heart of the Cham indigenous people, threatening the survival of this ancient matriarchal Hindu culture that stretches back almost two thousand years.
At the border between documentary and fiction, the film shifts audience attention between foreground and background, between intimate portraits and distant landscapes, offering reflections around fieldwork, ethnography, art, and the role of the artist.
Intertwining circumstances of the past, present, and future, the film also unfolds a multi-faceted historical and on-going experience of colonialisms, and looks into the central ideas of power and ideology in our everyday.

video duration 34m52s

Nguyen Trinh Thi is a Hanoi-based moving image artist. Her diverse practice, transcending the boundaries between cinema, documentary and performance, has consistently engaged with memory and history. Her works have been shown at international festivals and art exhibitions including Jeu de Paume, Paris; CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux; the Lyon Biennale 2015; Asian Art Biennial 2015, Taiwan; Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial 2014; and Singapore Biennale 2013.

• Salvador Dalì for Chupa Chups
The Chupa Chups logo was designed in 1969 by artist Salvador Dalí. Its first marketing campaign was the logo with the slogan “És rodó i dura molt, Chupa Chups”, which translates from Catalan as “It’s round and long-lasting”. Later, celebrities like Madonna were hired to advertise. In the 1980s, owing to falling birth rates, an anti-smoking slogan “Smoke Chupa Chups” was tried to attract further adult consumers.

• Günter Fruhtrunk for Aldi Nord
Günter Fruhtrunk was a 1954 stipendiary of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg and the french government and moved to Paris. In 1955 he worked with Hans Arp in his artist studio. He had his first solo exhibition in 1960 at the gallery Denise René in Paris and was awarded in 1961 the Prix Jean Arp from Kulturkreis im Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie. From 1967 until his death he worked as a Professor at the academy of fine arts in Munich.
A constructivist work period was followed by color intensive images of parallel, orthogonal or diagonal, colorful vectors, bundled in stripes. His work was noticed by a wider audience through his participation at documenta 4.
His most known art work, to date been published in millions, is his 1970 plastic shopping bag for Aldi-Nord.
translated from https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Günter_Fruhtrunk

• Victor Vasarely for Renault
Victor Vasarely has won between 1965 and 1967 numerous international art prizes. He has been a participant of documenta 1 (1955), documenta II (1959) and documenta III (1964) as well as the 4. documenta in 1972 in Kassel. In 1972 he developed a new rhombus logo in op-art style for the car manufacturer Renault.

with the exhibition and lead us into temptation black flamingo shows artist commissions by the artists Salvador Dalì, Günter Fruhtrunk and Victor Vasarely,
special thanks to CFP Brands / Chupa Chups and Ralf Olapinski for the Renault rhombus.

exhibitions @ black flamingo: sculptures by Veronika Witte for Einstein on the Beach

Veronika Witte

sculptures created for
Einstein on the Beach
Philip Glass / Robert Wilson
at staatsbankberlin

Nach der vielbeachteten Berliner Erstaufführung in der ehemaligen Staatsbank Berlin 2001 unter der Leitung von Berthold Schneider (Regie), Ari Benjamin Meyers (Dirigent) und Veronika Witte (Raum) wurde das Werk in einer neuen Raumadaption für die Parochialkirche als offizieller Beitrag des Einsteinjahres 2005 eingeladen. Der Konzeption der Oper EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH von Philip Glass und Bob Wilson liegt die Annahme von drei unterschiedlichen Perspektiven zugrunde: Portrait, Stilleben und Landschaft. Mit dieser Setzung haben die Autoren das Werk in engen Zusammenhang zu Grundparametern der Bildenden Kunst gestellt. Der spezielle Wechsel der Szenen „Knee Plays – Train – Trial – Dances“, die jeweils einer dieser Perspektiven zugeordnet sind, rhythmisiert den Ablauf des Abends. Auch die 2. Produktion der staatsbankberlin unternimmt den Versuch, die Oper diese der 2-dimensionalen Abbildungskunst entlehnte Wahrnehmung in eine 3-dimensionale Architektur zu übertragen. An die Stelle eines Bühnenbildes (Bildertheater) treten dabei Objekte und Installationen verschiedenster Künstler und Wissenschaftler, die sich in den Ort einschreiben und das Geschehen beeinflussen. Die frontale Theatersituation ist aufgebrochen und den Besucher erwartet eine begehbare Operninstallation, in der die Zentralperspektive des Theaters in Multiperspektiven aufgelöst wird.
