ZD > MICHAEL BRANTHWAITE at //MOLT!// exhibition !
"My practice is a response to a world filled with objects and commodities vying for attention and seeking to create meaning with in the lives of consumer driven cultures. My interests lie in what the scholar Sut Jhally terms ‘fetishism and the political economy of meaning’ meaning that we not only create articles to be consumed but also create the reason for consummation by enforcing a code of logic with in society that gives mass-produced articles ‘mythical’ value that is not attached to their actual function but to the values that we have defined ourselves, informed through advertising. Essentially my interest is in exposing these variations and at the same time replacing them with other sometimes overt and sometimes covert symbols that can be referenced as religious or symbolic. Similar to a lot of counter-culture views I do not have an alternative answer to a society driven by an incessant need to consume but instead through the process of making work aim to reveal some of the fallacy’s at play in our lives. " Michael Branthwaite, - at MOLT! Speculative Identities...

ZD > MARTA IVANOVA at //MOLT!// exhibition !
In Marta Ivanovas work „O“ the main point is the Moon. It is interpreted as a satellite’s projection to the male pole of personal relation between two people.
The work consists of several components – object/plane surface/medium.
The first one is 27 cm in diameter photo-sticker which shows a scanned round sponge which has absorbed water with remainders of the flowers.
The second component consists of 27 cm in diameter 4 photo-stickers where the ramainders of the flowers in vases are shown.
The third one is the plane surface in A3 format which was poured with water with the remainders of the flowers instead of paint.
An object becomes a fourth component – it is a glass cylindrical vase where a sponge called an oasis in floristic is put. On the top of the edge water is poured which will be absorbed by the oasis during the exposition time.
Every different object is linked by motives of vitality and process.
We will show one of her other projects, that is also dealing with gender questions and identity.

ZD > ANDRÉ SICURO at //MOLT!// exhibition !
Let's think of this word in Brazilian Portuguese: marginal. If you look at the dictionary, the translation, in english, would be something close to delinquent. But that is not what it is about. Marginal is a word that carries many layers of meanings: underground, in the edge, those who live on the streets, junkies, or, a very specific artistic practice during the 70's in Brazil, specially related with cinema. "Cinema Marginal" has Rogerio Sganzerla as its big guru.It was made with low budget, very radical anti traditional aesthetics and very acid critics against Brazilian bourgeois society and its values. This was during the 60's and 70's, in the middle of a dictatorship and a country absolutely repressed by the military system but, as any other avant-garde form of art this sort of production was extremely powerful as a rupture and became an important document of an era, viewed trough the eyes of experimentalism. That is where Andre Sicuro takes his inspiration, and more then this, that is how he makes his absurds amazing films. No budget, no desire to succeed, no pact with any system. Just his amazing control with the camera, the collaboration of his friends who are also muses and an upside down view of the stablished world. Not a delinquent in any sense, but truly underground and fully irreverent.
Maria Montero ( Curator) about André Sicuro, brasilian filmmaker. We will show one of his works at MOLT!.

ZD > DANIEL LUCHMAN at //MOLT!// exhibition !
"Through my work I actively merge rational and intuitive forms of thinking with a fluid practice that builds upon itself in continual layers. Many projects exist as open-ended situations with a void of undefined potential content".
We are excited about Daniel Luchman's video for MOLT! Speculative Identities.

ZD > MARA PLOSCARU at //MOLT!// exhibition !
"My main interest lies in unveiling intimate stories and infusing them with strange poetic narratives. The process of carefully documenting reality and slightly staged versions in order to surprise, to intrigue and to create fascination it's essential. It needs to go beyond the cliché and aesthetics. A strong image needs to make you think, wonder and raise questions." – Mara Ploscaru

In advance of our this years happening, we will introduce you to some of our participating artists, who will reflect speculatively modern humans identity.
JACOBUS CAPONE impressed and inspired us with the magic of his projects, sensitively investigating humans contingence to nature and its nature.- as in "The wound and its shadow" - On the 3rd of July a body of water from the Fiume Agogna (pictured river) was extracted and frozen into a solid cube. From sunrise the 15th July the frozen water was held by hand until it had slowly melted back into its source.
