'between intimacy and alienation'

About the work ‘Between intimacy and alienation’.
The initial idea behind this work was to create sort of a performance, not a live one, but a static performance, in a way it is a combination of sculpture and theater, a performance in the form of an installation.
By its nature, ‘between intimacy and alienation’ is both sculptural and theatrical, but nevertheless it remains static. once started the process I was in a need of looking, finding, re-defining to myself my ‘red-line’ (yes, later, translated into a transparent nylon wire ..) , how it all connects to one another. Along the way I got the urge, the need to re-arrange things to myself, to clarify, contextualize the work and the process too, the ways from A to Z, the way in which the idea develops. It means to discover where ‘things are laying ‘, as for me, having finished the work is somewhat like having reached the end.
In fact, this work is a collection, a collage of thoughts, sketches and maquettes and video clips from various performances, derived from my body of works I call ‘body-sculpture’s’, which I began to develop in the mid eighty’s (1985-86 and onward…).
I started this ‘collection’ once I began to develop my body-related works, constantly adding new materials which I brought into this process. This particular work (in very short…) existing and influenced by the human body, its movements, physic & mental, which is being presented in the form of dance performances (see DVD’s and website: www.noamben-jacov.nl ). When creating the performance I’m relating, enhancing the contact between ‘work’/object & human body and the space in between them as well as to the sound the ‘work’ makes.
Many thoughts cross one another (concisely (?) or not….) along this way. As result of this search the steps I took become like a collection of ‘things on the move’, crossing from the one to the other, from down to up, from left to right …, emphasizing the interrelations and putting it all in a context of mutual relations.
As to the title: ‘Between intimacy and alienation’, perhaps it is In 4 words the balance I’m looking for in all my works.
I‘m searching to catch, to put all this process into ‘one large open box’, to show first and foremost to myself the connections between it all, and how one thing lead to the other. …..

Human vs CNC
«Mit CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) können Werkzeugmaschinen per Elektronik gesteuert werden. Mit modernster Steuerungstechnik sind diese Maschinen in der Lage, Werkstücke mit höchster Präzision und komplexen Formen automatisch herzustellen. In Anlehnung an diese hochtechnologische Möglichkeit hat Daniel Züsli mehrere solcher Figuren erschaffen – aber natürlich ohne eine CNC-Maschine. Der Künstler hat aber gemäss der Vorgehensweise einer solchen Maschine gearbeitet und mit der Kettensäge und seinem Augenmass die Schnitte ausgeführt, die auch die Maschine vollziehen würde. Das Resultat ist ein Unikat, das von der durch den Menschen geschaffenen Unregelmässigkeit lebt. Trotz oder gerade wegen dieser Imperfektion strahlt die Figur eine grosse Eleganz und Charakter aus.» Christina Snopko

Schöpferische Zerstörung
Ich arbeite beim Modellieren häufig mit dem Zerdrücken der zuvor modellierten Form. Jedes Mal wenn bei mir ein kreativer Prozess ins Stocken gerät, verstärkt sich dieser Wunsch des Zerdrückens. Aus dieser Situation heraus entstand eine neue Technik. Der Unikat Original Kunstdruck mit der verlorenen Form. Mit meinen Schöpferischen Zerstörungsarbeiten schaffe ich bevor eine neue Idee die alte zerstört ein Gedächtnis. So sind die Abdrücke Erinnerungen an eine Skulptur welche die Zerstörung hinterliess oder erhalten hat. Man erkennt Fingerabdrücke, Modellierspuren, Farbe die zerfliesst. Ein toller Mix zwischen Hoch- und Tiefdruck mit der verlorenen Form.

The Dance
This is man’s spiritual ascent to perfection through the mind and love. One’s mystical journey. Deserting the ego, and dancing toward the truth and pure love. Reaching maturity and perfection to serve the whole creation. The dance of true happiness of overcoming lust and finding freedom within.

Siporexum
Description in German, English and French - please scroll down Dies war ein Experiment - eine Seite des ursprünglichen Porenbetonblocks unverändert beizubehalten. Industriell hergestellt, bestand der ursprüngliche Zweck des Steins darin, allen anderen zu ähneln und herkömmlich zum Bau eines Hauses zu dienen; und nicht das Schicksal eines einzigartigen Individuums zu führen. This was an experiment - keeping one side of the original aerated concrete block unchanged. Manufactured by industry, the stone's original purpose was to resemble all others and traditionally to be used in the construction of a house; and not lead the fate of a unique individual. Ce fut une expérience - garder un côté du bloc de béton cellulaire d'origine inchangé. Industriellement fabriqué, le but initial de cette brique était de ressembler à toutes les autres et d'être utilisée traditionnellement dans la construction d'une maison ; et de ne pas mener la vie d'un individu unique.

Belief
[Belief is; “an acceptance that something exists or is true, especially one without proof”.] We are all born in a family/society/country that mostly a strong belief is inherited generations after generations. One’s life is based on the set of rules through those beliefs, that is governing one’s behaviours. *Are one’s questioning his/her awareness of what is shaped one’s mind as “belief”? *Are one’s questioning the root of all beliefs? *How can he/she measure one’s belief is profound? *Do one’s have the power to change it if authorized? *Is one’s belief brings true knowledge so he/she can find happiness?

Description in German, English and French - please scroll down Die Inspiration für diese Skulptur stammte von der typischen Form eines Butternut Kürbis.

ETERNITY II
In ETERNITY, the artist explores the seemingly endless possibilities of the subterranean Roman passageways and the journeys through space and time they represent. By taking rubber casts of the hand-hewn walls, bringing them to the Earth's surface, transforming them into molds and then casting them in bronze, von Thüngen brings a space out of the ground and into a new place. Along the way, she transforms that original space, twisting it gently and slicing it into new sections as she brings it to the surface. In doing so, she moves an ancient space through time: First, into the contemporary world, and then, when sunlight bounces off it and into space, the future. text by vernon silver curated by BRUNO CORA during Venice Biennale 2017

Survival
There are periods or moments of pressure in everybody’s lifetime to the extreme that one would wish it no longer existed. These are the moments in life where one would feel desperate, uncertain or unbalanced because of the unusual sets of events. In this sculpture, I portrayed an individual that is under that pressure (feet on top of a head) but he/she is trying to survive (head is half buried). In these periods one needs to make more effort, have extra support or have faith (the hand supporting the head) to overcome the situation because of one’s survival instinct. This shows the battles one faces in day-to-day life.

STIRPE II O IL BIVACCO DI POLIFEMO (ANCESTRY II OR POLYPHEMUS' BIVOUAC)
My first land art work realized in a farm not so far from my studio, with my hand (and with the help of a tractor 50hp). Work that it was first and foremost a performance lasting several days. It was inspired by the camps of nomadic shepherds, that in my country are disappearing or are being transformed. A little as Polyphemus, who was the last of a long line of ancient giants (and shepherds too). Not only for this reference the fire was so big. The fire shaped roots of trees, staring or removing clay from them, changing their curves, coloring it with a complex scale of greys. Result still remains, farmer loves it, a gigantic natural brazier.

Erfurt Verwaltungszentrum Steigerwald Betonwerkstein, am Ort hergestellt, Oberflächen bearbeitet Nebelhörner sind Zeichengeber und Orientierungshilfe auf See oder an der Küste, wenn Sichtmöglichkeiten eingeschränkt sind und gewöhnliche Orientierungsmöglichkeiten ausfallen. Im übertragenden Sinne könnten Nebelhörner auch an Land nützliche Orientierungshilfen sein. Eine Erweiterung dieser Übertragung wird durch die Vielzahl der an einem Ort versammelten Nebelhörner angeboten, wie etwa z.B. dem Gedanken einer demokratischen Meinungsbildung als der Summe vieler Orientierungen. Die glatten, vertikalen Flächen, welche die Öffnungen der Ursprungsform (Nebelhorn) ersetzen, erscheinen in ihrer verwandelten Form als Kommunikationsinstrument. Die einzelnen Elemente werden als Individuen wahrgenommen. Die einander zugeordnete Positionierung, jeweils als Kommunikationspartner einerseits, als zugehöriger einer Gruppe andererseits, erzeugen die Atmosphäre eines allgemeinen Kommunikationssystems. Neben den interpretatorischen Aspekten geben die auffällige und eigenwillige Formgebung eines Nebelhorns Anlass für eine erstaunliche Variationsbreite skulpturaler Bearbeitungsmöglichkeiten. Die Wahrnehmung der Formen und des Materials, auch aus rein ästhetischem Blickwinkel, als skulpturale Elemente, sind so gleichwertig möglich. Die quasi aus dem Boden wachsende Form öffnet sich in eine gezielt orientierte glatte Fläche, als Abschluss der Form und als Ankopplung (Interface) an den umgebenen Raum.

Kamiyama kintsugi
The sculpture was inspired by the presence of human culture in the mountains and forests of Shikoku, where pilgrims and other travellers left many (sacred) objects over the past centuries. Hundreds of small stone buddhas as well as little offerings in cups and bowls are scattered along the winding mountain paths, as reminders of an old tradition and civilization. The stack of rice bowls refers to these offerings that Japanese people use(d) to give to natural phenomena, such as trees, rivers and mountains. I invited the contemporary inhabitants of Kamiyama to be present on their mountain by contributing some of their own tableware to the sculpture. By using their bowls, cups and plates I want to honour their way of co-existing with the (wild) nature that surrounds the village. By glueing the broken pottery onto the sculpture the porcelain becomes ‘whole’ again, just as happens with 'kintsugi', the Japanese art of repairing broken cups with gold. What was broken gains value and meaning.

Dreaming the woods II
"Dreaming the woods II" is an installation of wood and silk. The work constructs a route that develops looking upwards alluding to the posture of the body when it faces the sky framed by the trees. The project “Deaming the Woods” talks about the ephemeral experience of standing in front of a tree; the incorporeal experience of remember the nature. The work reflects on the relationship between human beings and nature. It is a work about memory. I seek to reconnect with nature through memory. Remembering the experience of facing the wind, the leaves, the grass… The work is not explicit, everyone will read in it their own memory. Bringing the nature as a memory into the city is the only way to make it present.

Golden Head
Jonas Eideloths Skulpturen aus edlem Marmor vereinen urbane Ausdruckskraft mit klassischer Steinbildhauerei. Die Figuren formen sich aus hartem Stein selbst und brechen aus in Richtung Freiheit. Mit Hammer und Meißel werden die Skulpturen einzeln aus Rohblöcken gearbeitet. Dabei stehen teils rohe Steinflächen im Kontrast zu den fein ausgearbeiteten, weich wirkenden Figuren. Jonas Eideloth stellt mit seinen Skulpturen grundlegende Werte wie Individualismus und Freiheit dar und die Möglichkeit für jeden seinen ganz eigenen Lebensweg zu gehen.
