CARSTEN HÖLLER ‘Fara Fara’

Film screening 

Kinshasa

Democratic Republic of Congo 

A special screening on the day before New Year's Eve marks the first time that the film will be shown in Africa. Returning to the historical Place de la Victoire, where part of the film was shot, the screening is an homage to the film’s stars and a tribute to the late Papa Wemba. Included by the late curator Okwui Enwezor in the 2015 Venice Biennale, Fara Fara, 2014, meaning face to face in Lingala, is an ode to Congo’s rich musical culture and the legendary ‘father of Congolese rumba,’ Papa Wemba. The film follows the performative duel, 'fara fara', between two of the DRC’s biggest stars, Koffi Olomide and Werrason.

Eyes of the City. ‘Ascending Cities’ section

LORIS CECCHINI  

Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture (UABB) in Shenzhen 

Futian railway station 

Shenzhen, China  

Directed by Carlo Ratti, Meng Jianmin, Fabio Cavallucci.

The Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture or UABB is currently the only biennial in the world that is exclusively based on themes of urbanism and urbanization. Located in the quickly urbanizing Pearl River Delta, the biennial is organized collaboratively by the two closely situated cities, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. 2019’s edition focuses on Urban Interactions as its theme that is then divided into two parallel sections, ‘Eyes of the City’ and ‘Ascending City’. Under the latter section, Loris Cecchini presents the work Waterbones (black) + L System; his instantly recognizable steel modules on a black background resemble organic forms while evoking a scientific and industrial production. The main venue of the biennial, the Futian underground high-speed railway station in Shenzhen, through its exhibition design, succeeds in associating the anonymity of the urban experience with the concept of an urban gateway to a potentially digitally augmented city.

LEILA ALAOUI ‘Los marroquíes’

solo show 

Casa Árabe 

Cordoba, Spain 

www.casaarabe.es

Leila Alaoui, an artist that can be defined by her motivation to capture Moroccan society and its varying contexts through her photography, presents 30 portraits at Casa Árabe. Inspired by Robert Frank’s The Americans, Alaoui travelled Marocco with a mobile studio and, producing portraits of an ever-changing and diverse society, photographing Arabs and Berbères, men and women, adults and children, she entered into an itinerant and prolonged encounter with her heritage, confronting it through the distance that the camera allows between photographer and subject while obtaining an intimacy formed by the artist’s connections to the country. Ultimately, Alaoui succeeded in creating an aesthetic independent of Orientalist folklore and capable of highlighting the dignity of individuals.

solo show 

Fondation Clément

Curated by Jérôme Sans 

www.fondation-clement.org

A journey to unknown and open territories, Black Forest is a walk through our existential doubts at the Fondation Clément, the contemporary art center at the Habitation Clément in Martinique.  Themes like the global village, travel, cultural identity, globalization and the permeability of borders are communicated through Tayou’s ever-fantastical and explosive sculpture, drawing, painting, installation and poetry.

LEANDRO ERLICH ‘Order of Importance’

site-specific installation 

Ocean front at Lincoln Road 

Miami Beach, USA 

www.miamibeachfl.gov 

During Miami Art Week 2019, Order of Importance comes to South Beach; a monumental site-specific installation that consists of 66 life-size replicas of cars and trucks that will be left to slowly degrade for the duration of the 15-day exhibition. The sand manifestations of vehicles are frozen in time and represent an immoveable modernity that makes a stark contrast with the natural, changeable and ultimately temporary material with which they are made.
