Yuichi Hirako • New Home

“How we interact with nature and how we think about it is very different from a hundred years ago. It will be different a hundred years from now and that’s natural, so I make work considering the changes that will come. I've been working on this subject for a long time.” — Yuichi Hirako Gallery Baton is pleased to announce 《 New Home 》 , a solo exhibition of Yuichi Hirako, from 5th June to 13th July 2024 in the Hannam-dong space, Seoul. Hirako deals with the coexistence and interdependent relationship between nature and humans through his original style of depiction, in which metaphors and symbols stand out. In this second solo exhibition with Gallery Baton, Hirako manifests his interests and particular subjects in richer expression by organically combining painting with sculpture or installation and selectively applying traits of diverse media.

Gvantsa Jishkariani’s ‘𝓘 𝓗𝓪𝓽𝓮 𝓟𝓸𝓮𝓽𝓻𝔂, 𝓸𝓻 𝓗𝓸𝔀 𝓣𝓸 𝓑𝓮 𝓗𝓪𝓹𝓹𝔂’.

The Why Not Gallery presents Gvantsa Jishkariani’s solo show. With the intensity characteristic to the artist, the exhibition turns into a total installation, where the viewer gets lost in the whirlwinds of information flows and visual stimulation. The main source of inspiration for the artist is her immediate environment, the socio-political situation that forms the reality around - a busy, DIY chaos, at times toxic, uneven, disordered, all-engulfing tsunami that one tries to survive in vain. Although this dichotomy between the collective and the individual, between the normative and the non-standard, is a subject of constant research and inspiration for the artist, it has never before been illustrated with such intensity in her work. The chaos in the exhibition space is superimposed with gentle, aesthetic works filled with special sensitivity. Beautiful giant mosaic flowers grow out of now trash newsreels; timeless, sublime landscapes offer a refuge; bold paintings drawn with free brushstroke promise a different reality.

Rusudan Khizanishvili : Velvet Armor

Velvet Armor, a solo exhibition by the Tbilisi, Georgia-born female artist Rusudan Khizanishvili (1979-). Khizanishvili, whose practice is influenced by an array of themes, including architecture, mythology, selfhood, and womanhood, explores the ways in which art connects us to the world beyond our introspective selves. As hinted by the exhibition's title, Velvet Armor — Khizanishvili's Korean debut — stands for the soft yet potent power of women. She veers away from portraying women as solely beautiful and romanticized subjects, a trope often found in pre-modern art. Instead, she vividly expresses their vibrant energy, painting them as strong, occasionally eccentric figures. This emphasis on female strength is a recurring theme in Khizanishvili's work, demonstrating her belief that "armor" is not designed to segregate us from our adversaries but rather to embrace them. Accompanying Khizanishvili's pieces, a work by Saeng Kwang Park (1904-1985) is featured in the exhibition, drawing a parallel between Georgia and Korea. Through Park's vibrant pentachromatic portrayal of Korean folklore and shamanism, Khizanishvili discerns resonances with her practice. The cross-cultural dialogue between the distinctively Korean elements in Park's work and the traditional Georgian context of Khizanishvili's pieces invites contemplation of the convergences among diverse cultures.

SPEECHLESS / დადუმებულები

The 2008 Georgian War resulted in the deaths of several hundred people and expulsion of tens of thousands from South Ossetia. Is there a way to show the tragedy of families that lost their loved ones, of thousands of people forced to leave their homes, of soldiers from the battlefield, and children who cannot comprehend the situation? Salomé Jashi answers this question in a way that leaves few apathetic, though the horrors of war are never visible on the screen. Her short film makes the audience witness a tragedy it never sees. watch the film here Produced by Sakdoc Film and Artefact production Directed by Salomé Jashi Filmed by Tato Kotetishvili Sound Nika Paniashvili ​ Speechless is part of the documentary film series ’10 Minutes of Democracy’

Tadáskía's monumental wall drawing in progress

In this timelapse, watch the artist Tadáskía produce an expansive wall drawing in response to the blank gallery space. For "Projects: Tadáskía,” the artist's first solo exhibition in the United States, she worked at MoMA over the course of several weeks, drawing directly on the wall using charcoal. She invited a team of coloring assistants to help fill in her drawing with colors chosen from her kaleidoscopic palette of dry pastels. Color is fundamentally important to the artist's practice. As Tadáskía has explained, "When I was drawing, my mother, Elenice Guarani, and my aunt, Gracilene Guarani, who are both Black, Afro-Indigenous women, told me to add more color because color is life."

PREMIUM CONNECT

Vimeo

Premium Connect envisions a study of information and communication technologies (ICT). It explores African divination systems, the fungi underworld, ancestors’ communication, and quantum physics to (re)think our information conduits. Embracing the idea that ICT acts as a mirror for the organic world capable of healing or harming, depending on its usage and users, Premium Connect investigates the cybernetics spaces where the organic, technological, and spiritual worlds connect. How can we use biological and esoteric systems to fuel technological process of information, control, and governance? Overcoming the organism/spirit/device dichotomies, this work explores spiritual connections as communication networks and the possibilities of decolonial technologies. Contrary to biased, Eurocentric thinking, our information super highway might find its roots in African spirituality. Significant research attributes the birth of computing sciences to African divination systems such as the Ifa system of the Yoruba people of East Africa, which appears to be the origin of binary mathematics, today the functioning principle of computing sciences.

Tabita Rezaire is infinity incarnated into an agent of healing, who uses art as a mean to unfold the soul. Her cross-dimensional practices envision network sciences - organic, electronic and spiritual - as healing technologies to serve the shift towards heart consciousness. Navigating digital, corporeal and ancestral memory as sites of struggles, she digs into scientific imaginaries to tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and the protocols of energetic misalignments that affect the songs of our body-mind-spirits. Inspired by quantum and cosmic mechanics, Tabita’s work is rooted in time-spaces where technology and spirituality intersect as fertile ground to nourish visions of connection and emancipation. Through screen interfaces and collective offerings, her digital healing and energy streams remind us to access our own inner data center, to bypass western authority and download directly from source. Tabita is based in Cayenne, French Guyana. She has a Bachelor in Economics (Fr) and a Master of Research in Artist Moving Image from Central Saint Martins (Uk). Tabita is a founding member of the artist group NTU, half of the duo Malaxa, and the mother of the energy house SENEB.
