My work is on view at Annet Gelink Gallery and Ellen de Bruijne Gallery

“Careless speech has rarely had such disturbing consequences. The recent US Presidential election, the British Brexit vote, the upcoming Dutch national elections - what better time to question the role of speech, Who speaks, Who acts? There is a significant sense that we simply don’t understand the direction of travel currently being followed. Now, at the beginning of 2017, there are many rallying cries to make this year different to the last. Where do we go from here? starts with this question” (Vincentelli).

 

Participating artists among others: Maria Barnas (NLD), Yael Bartana (ISR), Otto Berchem (COL/USA), Dora García (ESP), Sigurdur Gudmundsson (ISR), Alexandra Leykauf (DEU), Cristina Lucas (ESP), David Maljkovic (HRV), Navid Nuur (NLD), Paulien Oltheten (NLD), Anna Ostoya (USA),  Amalia Pica (ARG), Falke Pisano (NLD), Sue Tompkins (GBR).

24th April, 2015
7.30 pm


Entrance fee 150 rub.
Reduce - 75 rub.
Students of art schools - free


In this performance Oltheten offers a staged rendition of the way she handles her visual archive when at work in her studio, in a sense performing her own behavior as an artist. Sorting through a selection of print and moving images, which are simultaneously projected as a slide show, Oltheten elaborates on her methods for mapping particular aspects of human behavior. Oltheten orders a seemingly random selection of images into clusters, based on recurrent patterns. This live presentation is at once a performance, an anthropological investigation, an auto-contextualization of Oltheten’s own work, and an instructive viewing exercise: by letting the audience in on her own ways of seeing and sorting, as well as by sharing the stories behind images, she allows others to draw their own connections within this selection from her archive.

Where: Oude Kerk, Oudekerksplein 23, 1012 GX Amsterdam

 

With: Hedwig Houben, Melanie Bonajo, Frank Koolen en Paulien Oltheten.

 

About my performance: Oltheten uses public space as her field of operation, taking humans in relation to their surroundings as her main subject. In photography and video she selects particular kinds of postures, patterns and behaviours. In her pseudo-lectures the artist weaves various works into a narrative structure, stacking them both formally and in time. This new lecture, too, results in a piece that may be positioned between performative archive, anthropological study and documentary.

Paulien Oltheten / A moment of slowing down


8th August - 5th October 2014

 

Mit dem Verhalten von Passanten, Körperskulpturen des Zufalls und Situationskomik erkunden die Fotografien Paulien Olthetens das Genre des Schnappschusses. Oltheten lotet dabei bewusst die Gesetzmäßigkeiten des Ephemeren aus, in vielen ihrer Aufnahmen kann vom Betrachter nicht nachvollzogen werden, ob es sich um eine tatsächliche Momentaufnahme handelt oder ob er unfreiwillig Zeuge einer Inszenierung der kleinen Gesten geworden ist.

"Soms heb ik het idee dat ik gelijk heb als ik iets zie." De Nederlandse Paulien Oltheten (31) maakt foto's en video's van mensen, houdingen en bewegingen die ze opmerkt in de publieke ruimte. In het Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam stelt ze haar particuliere interpretatie van straatfotografie tentoon. De Canvasconnectie treft haar in haar studio in Amsterdam tussen bergen nieuw materiaal op de grond en aan de muren na een jaar rondkijken in de straten van New York. Met plezier verdwaalt Paulien Oltheten in ons album op zoek naar beelden en kunstenaars die haar inspireren.

Dutch artist Paulien Oltheten explores the vagaries of human relations in public space. In an ongoing process that oscillates between video, photography, and drawings, the artist records, tracks, and assembles visual and conceptual patterns in the encounter of people and things, revealing the shifts and ruptures between them. For this event, Oltheten performs one of her "Sort of Lectures" in which she interweaves different works in a narrative structure

Of Walking


Oct 19 — Dec 22, 2013

 

Walking is one of humankind's most basic acts. As Rebecca Solnit has written, "the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. And so one aspect of the history of walking is the history of thinking made concrete-for the motions of the mind cannot be traced, but those of the feet can." The exhibition Of Walking  will explore the concept of thinking (while walking) made concrete via the camera's lens and other means.

In recent times, the traditional nuclear family has expanded to incorporate a range of relationships. Including a vast and fluid network of in-laws, half-siblings, acquaintances and partners, the idea of the ‘family’ is also found across numerous disciplines, from scientific systems of classification to the genealogies of language and culture.
