Berlin Sounds x Images | Farewell Choo Choo Train by Patric Catani & SHOXXX

I happily announce this collaboration work with Patric Catani - curated by Nadia Says (Your Mom’s Agency) - released on GUZZU


/// Berlin Sounds x Images ///
FAREWELL CHOO CHOO TRAIN BY PATRIC CATANI & SHOXXX


Farewell Choo Choo Train is the celebration of multi-talent artists Patric Catani and SHOXXX meeting one last time before SHOXXX says goodbye to Berlin.

- - -

For this exclusive piece, Japanese comic artist SHOXXX and video game music composer Patric Catani (Puppetmastaz), collaborate on the song Farewell Choo Choo Train, published by Edition Stora / Freibank, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Catani, and featuring additional vocals by SHOXXX who created the matching animation showcasing her puppet installation photographed by Michael Felsch. The journey takes us through a forest of laughing trees and jumping mushrooms, and through adventurous dark tunnels where spirits are also passengers on this joyful rollercoaster train escaping the tentacles of Mt. Kraken.

Patric Catani is a Berlin-based music producer known for a wide range of live projects, album releases, soundtracks, sound installations, and collabs including with the likes of Peaches and Gonzales. By now, he has been involved in over 100 releases under his real name and various monikers. Nowadays, Catani focuses on producing sophisticated video game soundtracks, living his childhood dream of scoring games. The soundtracks he made for hit games like Pit People, BattleBlock Theater or Alien Hominid Invasion, developed by the San Diego based cult company The Behemoth for Xbox, Steam, and Nintendo Switch, are cherished by millions worldwide.

SHOXXX is a visual and performing artist; her hand-sewn fabric objects are vibrant, eccentric, and playfully challenge the notion of art as a luxurious item. Through her installations and performances, SHOXXX invites audiences into her fantasy world, sparking their sense of adventure and imagination.

 坂本 豊 / Yutaka Sakamoto【アーティスト】(日本/ Japan)
 SHOXXX【アーティスト・キュレーター】(ドイツ/ Germany)

アートの街として世界的に有名なベルリン。そこで暮らすアーティストたちはどのような生活や生き方をしているのか?また、ベルリンのアートシーンはこの数年でどのように変化してきたのか?さらに、ドイツと日本ではアーティストという概念がどのように異なるのか?
このトークイベントでは、ベルリンで活動するアーティストSHOXXX氏と以前からドイツと日本を渡り、活動してきたアーティストの坂本豊氏が、それぞれの経験や見解を交えながら、語り合います。
SHOXXX氏は、ペインティングやドローイング、インスタレーションやパフォーマンスなど、多彩な表現方法で作品を発表しています。坂本豊氏は、サウンドインスタレーションを中心とした作品発表を行っているアーティストで、日本では美術教育に問題があるのではないか、と指摘し、海外と日本ではアーティストの在り方が違うと分析しています。
このイベントは、会場となるart space tetraとベルリンにあるAtelier SHOXXXBOXXXとオンラインで繋ぎ、開催するトークイベントとなります。
このイベントは、ベルリンと日本のアートに関心のある方にとって、貴重な機会となるはずです。ぜひご参加ください。

The adventure playground.

19.May.2023 - UN1TY art show @B-Part Am Gleisdreieck, Berlin

I'm participating in this project - multimedia group exhibition, and will show 2 x photo collages and do a performance on 19th of May.


UN1TY

How can the boundaries between artists and their audience, the portrayers and their subjects be taken down? UN1TY is a multimedia group exhibition dedicated to the question of how artistic processes can be democratized and de-hierarchized. The show focuses on the art of portraiture – from studio photography, retouched and augmented imagery, collage, moving image to AI-generated photography and live interaction for a fuller artistic expression, as well as the representation of the self as home.


Art Show
Friday May 19, 6-9PM
& Saturday May 20 2-6PM


The exhibition vernissage will present the multimedia portraits created in group sessions as well as in the workshop together with the audience. The works will be enhanced by live performance and interaction in space by the artists present and made a multi-sensory experience. On the following day, the works will be exhibited as visual pieces only.


Free for All Workshop
Sunday May 14, 5-8PM

In the course of a workshop open to both the artists and the public, the exhibition works are developed and selected based on the structures of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), the curation is guided by the work of all participants as well as their votes in an election process.
The workshop also features a guided discussion between the artists and the audience that explores the portrait as a creative genre, the use of new tech along with emerging questions of copyright and accessibility, and potential approaches to creating democratic structures in art. In the second half of the workshop, participants will dedicate themselves to the practical creation of an AI portrait and will participate to different practical workflows including a DAO-inspired curatorial vote. The traditional barriers between curator and artist will fall, and the audience will gain deeper insights into the organization of an exhibition.


► UN1TY artists are: Aconite, Andreas Schimanski, Claire Saint Marc, Cloaking, Danny Muster, Kyoka, Lady Gaby, Noura Hafelia, Olcan Akçay, and SHOXXX.

► Concept & implementation: Nadia Says (Your Mom’s Agency)
► Art direction B-Part Exhibition & Loop Raum: Rüdiger Lange

22.Oct.-11.Nov.2022 - "Unbelievable Friendship" @Galerie Neurotitan, Berlin

I participate in this group exhibition at the gallery Neurotitan, Berlin.


What is intangible about life, but defines every living being.
Tangles up and unwinds in the utmost mysterious ways?

- - - - - - -

UNBELIEVABLE FRIENDSHIP

is an experimental collaborative exhibition built in honour of Friendship, as an ingredient that holds the power to magically transform any way of human interaction. Towards one another, towards the world known or unknown and towards the multiplicity of creation.

Cultivating gratitude, generosity and genuinely compassionate behaviour needs a shift in consciousness that debunks the myths of singularity and rather gravitates towards an appreciation of experiencing the spirit of shared existence, reaching far beyond our perception of time and space.

Focusing attention at the layers of reality which unite hands and hearts and the wisdom of innumerable beings, until the structures of matter in this world are able to take on new, surprising forms.

The presented works are installed in a manner that seeks cohabitation and reinforcement, some resulting from long term intended collaborations, others from streams of parallels that naturally evolved into the moment where they can be shared in the gallery space together.

The title of the exhibition UNBELIEVABLE FRIENDSHIP comes from a composition by Filip Misek from his album released under the same name this year.
