The London Biennale will be entirely artists-generated. It will be open to any artist anywhere in the world. There will be no limitation of age, sex (gender), nationality, religion or race.
An artist can participate in the Biennale by simply sending three copies of a photograph (about postcard size) of him / herself or of proxy person with an arrow (of any size and of any materials) inscribed with the words London Biennale 2000 and the person’s name (the photograph to be taken in front of the Eros statue at Piccadilly Circus in London) – to me at my address in Bracknell: 11 Naseby, Hanworth, Bracknell, Berkshire RG12 7HD. There is no registration fee.
Every artist will be responsible for his / her participation in the London Biennale – finding the venue for showing the work, funding, transport and publicity etc. Every artist will be encouraged to document his / her participation in the London Biennale and the resulting documentation will (i hope) be published in book form and as a cd rom the year after the London Biennale.

Director of the London Biennale

Pollinations London Biennale 2014:

  • London Biennale -NYC Pollination
    Joy Syringe
    Reception: Saturday June 28, 6-8pm
    321 Gallery
    321 Washington Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11205
    June 28 – August 2, 2014

Joy Syringe – happiness in a tube – a prescriptive bliss of temptatious fixed focus. Works of art engage the bell curves of dominance and narrative, gifting small revelations that oscillate between trauma and ecstasy. The messages they dispatch slide between coherency depending upon their present and future tense. Each piece on display becomes a plume on the fusion of horizons[1] performing as thickener in the starched dopamine haze of desire. A bridge OR a gap, a fissure AND a fusion – singularities calcified in-between. Tabula Rasa’s becoming objectified aides of clarification. Burn the frost. No more ice. Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.

Joy Syringe is an exhibition and pollination of the 2014 London Biennale, MAPS – MAZES – MYSTERIES.

Artists: Rheims Alkadhi, Nancy Barton, Sofi Brazzeal, j.frede, lyeberry, Taro Masushio, Antje Rieck, and is organized by Joseph Imhauser.
thanks to, 321 Gallery, David Medalla, Adam Nankervis, and Giovanni Ricci

[1] Gadamer views understanding as a matter of negotiation between oneself and one’s partner in the hermeneutical dialogue such that the process of understanding can be seen as a matter of coming to an ‘agreement’ about the matter at issue. Coming to such an agreement means establishing a common framework or ‘horizon’ and Gadamer thus takes understanding to be a process of the ‘fusion of horizons’ (Horizontverschmelzung). The notion of ‘horizon’ employed here derives from phenomenology according to which the ‘horizon’ is the larger context of meaning in which any particular meaningful presentation is situated. Inasmuch as understanding is taken to involve a ‘fusion of horizons’, then so it always involves the formation of a new context of meaning that enables integration of what is otherwise unfamiliar, strange or anomalous. In this respect, all understanding involves a process of mediation and dialogue between what is familiar and what is alien in which neither remains unaffected.

June 17, 2014: opening of solo exhibition by Joel ed de Leon curated by Eva Bentcheva
