I've been back and forth between London and Bergen in recent weeks, planning a project I can finally announce!

Disclosed Location

Public tours of an empty space by four artists

A project by Vlatka Horvat

18 - 22 March 2014

For her new project commissioned by Volt, London-based artist Vlatka Horvat has invited four artists working in diverse modes – from performance and dance to installation, video and text – to devise and lead public tours of a vacant storefront space at Veiten 2B in Bergen, previously occupied by a flower shop.


Over the last few years, Vlatka Horvat has worked extensively with found or repurposed spaces, transforming and re-imagining them by reorganizing them spatially, or by intervening in them by means of provisional and temporary gestures and materials. For her project in Bergen, developed especially for a vacant two-storey storefront at Veiten 2B, Horvat decided to leave the space empty and to transform it not by filling it with ‘things’, but by summoning in it different imagined histories, narratives and events.

Through a series of public tours lead by four artists, the project stages a kind of a performative enlivening of an empty space, in which things, events and images are conjured and evoked rather than displayed, and in which the particular physical and spatial properties of a site, its architecture, as well as its economic, social and material realities might serve as an impetus to investigate the relation of the built space (and empty space in particular) to human presence, agency and a sense of possibility.

Horvat’s recent spatial installations have often focused on the question and construction of the viewers’ presence – exploring the ways in which interventions in a physical space might affect how we move in and through it, what choices we might make in it, and how space itself might determine what can (or cannot) happen in it. Disclosed Location approaches a specific vacant space as a site of potential, in which a location is repeatedly altered and re-imagined through acts of projection, summoning and imagination. As different artists’ tours of the space unfold over the course of a week, multiple stories, narratives and versions of the space are layered on top of one another, colliding with other narratives and paths, creating a sense of dense possibility (and impossibility) for the space and its imagined pasts, presents and futures.

Following four days of artist tours, on Saturday 22 March, Horvat will present an artist talk extending the exploration of empty space more broadly, using image material donated for the presentation by some 30 international artists. The day will conclude with a panel discussion between Horvat and the artists participating in Disclosed Location, reflecting on the approaches and strategies they used in devising tours of the space, and further probing some of the concerns raised by the project.

I'm just back in London from more than a month in the States - the biggest chunk of which I spent in Portland, working on a show at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center.  Portland is so so lovely and working at Disjecta was fantastic. I'm super happy with the show - the documentation of which I'll try to add to the Projects section later today (look under Excavations and And Other Claims).

The show got reviewed today by John Motley in The Oregonian. You can read it here.


artissima fair starts today!

I'm very happy that two of my galleries are showing new works of mine: Zak | Branicka (light blue no.4) and annex14 (lillac no.7). Come by and say hi if you are in Torino this weekend...

These are the pieces that can be seen at artissima: Assorted 2013 Drawings, In Relation to a Fault, Frame Paintings (at Zak | Branicka) and Single View at annex14.


I have been making a lot of new work lately, some of which was shown at ViennaFair in October and some of which will be shown at artissima fair next week in Torino. I uploaded these new works to the Projects section: Assorted 2013 Drawings, In Relation to a Fault, Frame Paintings, Good Life.

Various new drawings and collages, as well as new panel works and wall sculptures will be at Zak | Branicka booth at artissima. Additionally, annex14 booth will have several of my Single View pieces.


Things have been crazy busy. Which is why I haven't updated this in, oh, yikes, 5 months...

It was a good summer - a 10-day visit by parental units :) followed by a month-long residency on a lake in the Austrian Alps at the amazing SoART residency in June/ July.

Then a road trip across Iceland (this for fun, not work). In August, another residency at PACT Zollverein in Essen, where I was working on a new performance for the upcoming IMPACT symposium I'm doing in October (with Walid Ra'ad and Kris Verdonck - more on this in a separate post later).

At the moment I'm in Herford, Germany - a town that google streetview vans have yet to visit - where I just finished installing and making a new piece for a show at MARTa Herford Museum - working with 6m-long reclaimed wooden planks - which had apparently been sitting outside somewhere for some 50 years (or so they tell me) so they are beautifully weathered and pliable - and a bunch of found objects and materials collected around the museum and from a local recycling yard.

The show opens on Friday - will put some concrete details up tomorrow and some proper documentation. In the meantime, here's a pic of the new work. :)


My show, titled "Fault Lands", opens today at annex14 in Zurich. The vernissage is 6-8 at 245 Hardstrasse, opposite the Schiffbau.

Hugely excited about this new body of work!

Here's a quick shot - will post proper documentation to the Projects section in the next couple of days.
