 Dear Friends,

 Interdependency Now – One on One is an Instagram Live Series highlighting artists from our current show
 
 and generating ongoing meaningful and relevant dialogue with our guests. 
 
 This Tuesday, June 30th, we will be hosting the second part of the conversation between the artist and

 educator Jenny Marketou and independent curator Adele Eisenstein.

 
 After four months of lockdown, Jenny Marketou will be speaking from the gallery space, revisiting her work
 
 Ever Growing through my City, 
that takes on new meaning in this time of social and cultural unrest. 
 
 They will continue the conversation begun previously, focusing on protocols and infrastructures of interdependence, 
 
 care and knowledge production, and how the ideas and principles behind them extend beyond the physical to the
  
 virtual space in Marketou’s art practice. We hope you can join us to put your questions into action.

 
 This event occurs in anticipation of the reopening of Radiator Gallery on July 15, and the Interdependency
 
 Now
 exhibition. Starting that day, the gallery will work by appointment only, for a limited number of visitors.

 

About the exhibition  Interdependency now:

 Artists: Eirini Linardaki, Jenny Marketou,
 Vincent Parisot, Peter Soriano

 Fanzines and editions: Julien Gardair, Tattfoo Tan
 Interpretive participation by Maria Dimanshtein

 Curated by Eirini Linardaki and Jenny Marketou

Planning the exhibition Interdependency Now, the co-curators and participating artists Eirini Linardaki and Jenny Marketou examined ideas of interdependency, participation, and collaboration in relation to art and social practice. How could they create sustainable relations among the exhibition’s artists and curators, and, most importantly, with an audience drawn from the many diverse communities that co-exist in New York City’s five boroughs? 
 
Interdependency suggests learning from and taking care of one another and acknowledging the ways in which we need support. No one stands alone. In contrast to dependency, interdependency connects us to each other in powerful ways, helping us to overcome differences and embrace new perspectives. As the philosopher and gender theorist Judith Butler argues, social interdependency is a great leveler; it naturally leads to greater equality and emancipation.
 
Interdependency Now aims to use contemporary art to make evident the ways in which we are all interdependent. The exhibition, which runs from February 21 at Radiator Gallery in Long Island City, features the works of four artists working collaboratively: Eirini LinardakiVincent ParisotJenny Marketou, and Peter Soriano.

  Dear Friends,
Interdependency Now – One on One is an Instagram Live Series highlighting artists from our current show. 
This Wednesday, May 27, we will be hosting a conversation between the artist and curator Eirini Linardaki and artist Tattfoo Tan.
 
About Tattfoo Tan:
Throughout my art practice, I employed the process of Learn, Practice, Teach. The result of the process is a syllabus book. This is the fourth book that I wrote. This book should be used as an exercise book, write your name on the front page and keep answering the prompt in the book, they appear in rounded corner boxes. Keep researching words or topics that you are intrigued with. The book itself flows from duality to nonduality.

It was based on my own experiences learning this knowledge and practice. The book is best used during my New Earth Ceremony because I’ll be able to walk you over each page and you can go home and do the exercise. Since my art practice are socially based and the exhibition is static, this book becomes the bridge. The reader will be able to activate all the practices without the artist present. Hopefully, it will be a catalyst in further your exploration into the mystery of life. In short, it is a spiritual hero’s journey of self-realization, as the ancient sage would call it: enlightenment.

Eirini Linardaki was born in Athens and studied in Limerick L.I.T., Ireland, Berlin, and Marseille. She lived in France for more than twenty years. She is now developing projects within the city and questioning the relationship between public policy and art.

Vincent Parisot, Peter Soriano

Fanzines and editions: Julien Gardair, Tattfoo Tan
Panel discussion: Juanli Carrion
Interpretive participation by Maria Dimanshtein

Curated by Eirini Linardaki and Jenny Marketou

During several discussions Eirini Linardaki and Jenny Marketou co-curators and participating artists discussed terms of interdependency, participation, performance, collaboration in relation to art and social practice. They began by asking how they could bring together sustainable relations among themselves, the artists/curators, and most important with their audiences from the diverse communities across the five boroughs of New York City. They reflected on artistic actions as political and social forms in the context of contemporary art discourse, as well as, within their work and the works of other artistsThey envisioned Interdependency Now being an exhibition based on the potential of participatory, performative and socially engaged practices. Interdependency means to learn from one another; to take care of one another; to cultivate human exchanges; to change perspectives; to overcome differences in experiences of everyday life. One of the things contemporary art can help make visible is how creativity resides within our society in multiple ways. Our connectivity with each other. Our environment is not a linear process of development, as it is a process in which we are all relational and interdependent beings. As Judith Butler, American philosopher mentions the idea of Interdependency establishes a principle of equality and connectedness. (1)
 
Interdependency Now brings together the works of artists who contribute to this participatory experience which takes place from February 21st through April 3rd, 2020 at Radiator Gallery in Long Island City.
 
 
Eirini Linardaki and Vincent Parisot are creating a common installation titled “Monkey meets war”. They are combining magnetic fragments of drawings and collages both from previous explosions and faux marble drawings of dismembered monkeys. The fragments can either be assembled into separate drawings or be messed up to create abstract collages. For a long time, the artists thought about the techniques each one is using in their installations. Vincent practices drawing and painting inspired by intriguing objects interrogating our perception of heritage and nature. Eirini works with patterns from countries in war and is using imagery from disasters and explosions to speak about our human condition, tragedy and our psyche in war. Under the auspices of interdependency, they have decided to join their works in one installation, intertwining their materials, techniques and practices. They are displaying them in a way that the visitors become the authors of the images that are created anew from their fragmented artworks. 
 
Jenny Marketou creates a new iteration of Evergrowing through my city originally realized for The Garden. It is her ongoing art & praxis initiative for youth in Athens which was presented during the School of Everything, Parliament of Bodies, Documenta 14, Athens/Kassel. Evergrowing through my city is an ephemeral sculptural intervention meant to be constructed over time with the participation of the audience which develops the artist’s interest in working with models and infrastructures for play and civic engagement. Jenny’s inspiration has been Karl Johansson’s (1890) self-stabilizing prototypes of the tensegrity construction systems in which each part is essential to the function of the larger structure. Evergrowing through my city is made out of tensegrity units of wooden sticks, knotted together with elastic threads, colorful yarns, found materials, and objects. Throughout the exhibit participants are offered the opportunity to build and add their own colorful wooden units, to attach found objects, textures and material. A digital data system compiles all of the objects along with the names of participants. By the end of the exhibition, the evergrowing construction becomes whimsical and joyful embodying the character of the participants by the construction of relationships with the elements that have been used.
 
Peter Soriano whose work is instructional based wall drawings contributes with a work titled ““Jungfrau- Aletsch””. It is a section of a larger wall drawing project that he will exhibit this summer in the Université de Bordeaux. The work is based on observations and the experience of being on a glacier last summer, and forms part of a larger project observing melting snow. More specifically he focuses on the large cracks that form on the ice surface. During the exhibition Peter intends to complete the wall drawing with the help and interpretation of other participants. These individuals will choose from a large selection of preselected marks, to complete the drawing as they see fit.
 
During the exhibition there will panel discussions, artists talks and readings.
 
Juanli Carrion’s participation takes the form of a panel discussion that he organizes titled OSS Project Inc: Community + Conflict + Art = Garden .The panel addresses public gardens as art, interventions, using urban farming, storytelling, educational programming and community building as means to address sustainable social or political structures and art practices.
 
Julien Gardair participates with a series of Fanzines and Tattfoo Tan is offering reading possibilities with his current editions.
