BOOK LAUNCH: "DRAWING PEOPLE" BY ROGER MALBERT, THAMES AND HUDSON, 2015
CHLOE PIENE AND DASHA SHISKIN IN CONVERSATION WITH DIRECTOR BRETT LITTMANN
Wednesday, June 24 6:30pm
The Drawing Center
35 Wooster Street
SoHo, NYC



Artists Chloe Piene and Dasha Shishkin will sign copies of DRAWING PEOPLE by Roger Malbert after the talk

The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an Artistic education,
and the life class essential to the formation of an Artist's style and technique.
Yet in the contemporary art world, drawing is increasingly
regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for ongoing exploration well beyond the sketchbook.
Drawing People—the publication—is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey
of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form
being produced today by seventy contemporary Artists from around the world.

Join Brett Littman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center, with Artists Chloe Piene and Dasha Shishkin,
whose work is featured in Drawing People for a discussion about their drawing practices and life
within one of the most creatively rich and emotionally powerful forms of art being made today.

INTRODUCTION BY KATHERINE STOUT


"…A group of drawings titled "Self Portrait as a Man" stems from the Artist's question:

 

"If charged with the task of constructing a Golem, at what point would you decide it's sex, perfected?"

 

In these images, Piene's slippery, charged line ravels into bodies whose fleshly incarnations maintain an openness, their male and female components unfurling through layers, hovering in an ongoing state of flux. By contrast, the distribution of energy in the full throttle pudendathon of her self-portrait video is dramatically polarized by a close up of the Artist's crotch. The manly voice intoning her name as white cream flows across the lens is also her own. Here, as elsewhere, male and female are unmasked as simplistic tropes, and in their collision an unrest occurs, whereby beauty and delicacy come roaring up out of the dark salt earth."

"Her second "Self Portrait" shows Piene lifted up to the light by dozens of guys at a Heavy Metal gig; she is both a victorious striker held aloft by her teammates and a queen bee surrounded by suitors. Compare the ambiguous erotic dynamics played out here to the drawings of the Dwarf series, where Piene combines her body with that of a male Dwarf. The synthesis of these physical extremes - the elegance and softness of a young woman's body - the hardness and condensed strength of the Dwarfs’ - are embodied in a group of unlikely beings that exhibit a tender disjointedness - like two ghosts manifesting in the same space. The Artist likens these figures to a medieval bestiary where the human, not the animal, is documented in all its unfamiliarity. It is a place where the misunderstood and shrouded aspects of existence rise to the surface to both haunt and reign."

LOUIS VUITTON
ESPACE CULTUREL
PARIS
FEB 7 - MAY 11, 2014

"The work of Chloe Piene is known for its ability to straddle a wide spectrum, in its play of materials and as a certain philosophical position. Her work has made various and diverse associations with prisoners, love letters, failure, and heroic transformation. Piene has been called both brutal and delicate; figurative, forensic, erotic and fantastic. Her video and sculpture utilize the greater sensory impact of noise, time, shadow, and heavy material to dig visibly into the more subterranean levels of experience. She is known widely for her delicate and penetrating drawings, which are typically anchored in the body and skirt the boundaries of fashion and anatomy.
The work selected for the exhibition “Astralis" uses penumbral shadow and light. It takes from regal schemes for burial which were a ritual mix of adornment and internment. The installation on exhibit is made from iron, one of the most ancient metals, used to this day in applications as wide ranging as bridges, ships and for purposes of war. In this installation, the heavy material floats as if made from ether, seemingly precious, and delicate, like a pretty necklace. Death is light, and Death is heavy; typical to her work she creates a space which accommodates every extreme.
Chloe Piene was born in 1972 and lives and works in New York."

METAL BELLY/INTERROGATION
PAR DOMINIQUE BALAź

1. METAL BELLY
By Chloe Piene, with Paulo Henri Paguntalan and Sue de Beer
A pregnant belly is serenaded by Paulo Henri, lead singer of the band Copremesis. This was set up
2 weeks before the due date of a baby boy in the freight elevator of an industrial building in New York.
We agreed that Paulo would begin in a low, dark, subterranean space, climb, peak, and then return slowly back to darkness.

2. INTERROGATION
By Chloe Piene
Interrogation is taken from real interrogation transcripts; one of a psychopathic serial killer
rapist and the other of a one time child killer rapist, both Canadian. The piece is still in development.
The point is, that all of it is real.
