Art Below has started at Hyde Park Corner station

’Totally Connected’ by artist Ulla Karttunen, ART BELOW Summer Show, Herrick Gallery & Hyde Park Corner Tube Station, London 2018

The Art Below Summer Show is on display at Hyde Park Corner tube station from 18th June 2018 for two weeks. On 26th June the exhibition opens also at Herrick Gallery. The theme is the ‘Digital Age’, given by the curator Ben Moore: the artists have been asked to ’to voice and document their current relationship and place in the digital age and to channel their feelings and emotions about this rapidly changing time that we are living through’.

The artist Ulla Karttunen’s work is an ironic interpretation of the idea of man, the idea of human being, in the digital age. The illusion of being connected and the rise of narcissism characterize the digital age.

What is the difference between a sheep and a human being? A sheep knows that it’s cool without obsessional repetition of its face in asocial media.

Anish Kapoor: I like America and America doesn't like me

One of the most impressive Art Below projects has been Anish Kapoor’s poster at Union Station, Los Angeles 2017. Kapoor’s self-portrait poster, referring to Joseph Beuys, was titled ”I like America and America doesn’t like Me” and protested against the immigration policies in Donald’s Trump’s era. The work warns other artists to adapt with silence to the politics of exclusion.

”I Like America and America Likes Me” (1974) was Beuys’ famous performance, in which he spent several days inside a gallery with a coyote, without seeing anything else from America.

 


Exhibition opens in Los Angeles

Miracles in New York

Armory Week, New York 2018: Artbox.project New York 1.0 at Stricoff Gallery

The Miracle of the Weeping Madonna, 2018, by Ulla Karttunen

When media tells about weeping madonnas, it is normally question of statues that are claimed to be shedding tears of blood by supernatural means. Most cases are proven as hoaxes. Some madonnas, believed to be apparitions of the Virgin Mary, attract pilgrims.

The madonna in this digital mixed-media artwork does not cry because of supernatural reasons. She sheds tears of blood (and tears of other unrecognised materials) because of all-too-real reasons: for all sexual violence, for all inequality, on the globe.

Where’s the miracle? There are hopes that #MeToo and #TimesUp movements mean a historical change. First we must cry out, and then, little by little, times are changing. This miracle is related to reality, and its other name is change and justice.

The Miracle of the Weeping was presented at Artbox.Project New York 1.0, The Stricoff Gallery, 564 W. 25th Street, New York, NY , 5th – 16th March 2018

A Red-Dressed Goddess

Uma, The Lady of the Mountains, 2017, digital collage by Ulla Karttunen, on show at Miami exhibition (Artium Miami Art Gallery)

“Uma, The Lady of the Mountains” is a portrait of the ancient red-dressed mountain-goddess. Uma means light or the peace of night. She is considered as the goddess of spiritual knowledge.

Uma is known also as Parvati, as well as other names; Parvata is the Sanskrit word for mountain. Lalita Sahasranama, a sacred Hindu text, gives 1000 names for Parvati, Lalita, Uma.

Parvati or Uma is seen as an active figure; referring to love, desire and ecstacy, but also to freedom, action and justice. C.G. Jung, in his Mysterioum Coniunctionis, linked Parvati and the black Goddesses.
