Unterströmungen
Die neuen skulpturalen Klanginstallationen von Felicia Gilden aus weißen Ziegeln, Stahl und handgeschöpftem Papier werden überflutet vom bewegten Licht eines Videofilms. Dieses Licht durchdringt das dünne, zerbrechliche Papier der Skulpturen und lässt sie wie hautähnliche architekturale Gebilde wirken. Das Licht umfasst die Klänge von Grillen, Glocken, Fahrzeugen und Straßenmusikern, gemischt mit gesprochenen Traumsequenzen und Kirchenglocken, die Felicia Glidden in New York und Washington DC, als auch in ländlichen Gegenden (mittlerer Westen der USA und Süddeutschland) sammelte. Die projizierten Videoprojektionen bestehen aus Bildern von Gemälden der Künstlerin, Bildern von Wasser, Bäumen und Straßen. Abstrakte Zeichnungen von obsessiver Natur stehen für das Intuitive. Sie sind inspiriert von Begriffen wie Verbundenheit, Schaltkreis, Informationsfluss und steigendem Energieverbrauch und ergänzen dieInstallationen perfekt. Zur Vernissage und auf der Kunstnacht wird der französische Musiker Alain Wozniak mit interaktiven Improvisationen (Klarinetten, Elektronik und Looper) innerhalb der Installation für ein akustisches Erlebnis sorgen.

September 10 – November 22, 2013

Location: FINE ART MUSEUM – PERMANENT GALLERY WESTERN CAROLINA UNIVERSITY, CULLOWHEE NORTH CAROLINA

Iron Maidens : Women of Contemporary Cast Iron
August 19 – November 22
RECEPTION: THIRD THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 19, 5 – 7PM

Iron casting has traditionally been seen as a man’s-world, however in the later part of the twentieth century a core of women emerged from the field, the Iron Maidens.
Iron Maidens is an exhibition of sculpture and drawings by British and American female sculptors who work in cast iron.
Iron casting has a very old history as a process for creating functional products, however its use by fine artists is very recent, dating back to the 1960’s with the development of a studio size iron furnace. Iron casting is a process of re-melting scrap iron in a special type of blast furnace that reduces the solid pieces to molten iron which is then poured into premade “casts” or molds.

Iron Maidens: Women of Contemporary Cast Iron celebrates the contributions women have made in the field of cast iron in an exhibition of sculpture and drawings by British and American female sculptors. This exhibition features 14 women artists from the United State and the United Kingdom including Simone Bizzell-Browning, Sarah Clover, Felicia Glidden, Cynthia Handel, Kate Hobby, Dilys Jackson, Justine Johnson, Deborah LaGrasse, Coral Lambert, Alison Lochhead, Carrie Phoenix, Tamsie Ringler, Theresa Smith and Julie Ward.

Artist Lecture at the Jugendkunstschule in Meersburg on Wed, May 8 at 2:00pm

Undercurrents:

What lies just below the surface? Like an iceberg whose greater mass is not revealed at the surface of the water, much of what happens around us is unseen.

Felicia Glidden works with cast metal, sound, video, mixed media sculpture, painting and performance to explore that which is unseen or just below the surface of awareness. Her work addresses a transitional moment between states of being; the moment just before falling asleep where images start to form in the mind, or just after waking, where the activities from the dreams disorient. She explores the confusion of déjà vu, intuition, and a type of recall; a thought below the surface that cannot be brought to the forefront of the mind. Themes woven through her work include the road, transportation infrastructure, elemental forces, memory, and sensorial connectivity. Weaving together threads of traditional material handling (steel fabrication, paper-making) with new technology (digital video and sound), mirrors her interest in linking the past with the present.

Vortrag von US-Künstlerin Felicia Glidden in Jugendkunstschule

Donnerstag 25.04.2013

Am Mittwoch, 8. Mai 2013, 14:00 Uhr findet in der Jugendkunstschule Bodenseekreis in der Meersburger Seepromenade 16 ein kostenfreier Vortrag der Künstlerin Felicia Glidden aus Washington DC statt. Ihr Thema: Was liegt direkt unter der Oberfläche? Wie bei einem Eisberg, dessen weitaus größerer Teil sich unsichtbar unterhalb der Wasseroberfläche befindet, bleibt vieles von dem, was um uns herum passiert, ungesehen, ja unerkannt.

Felicia Glidden arbeitet mit Gusseisen, Klang und Video. Sie arbeitet an Skulpturen aus unterschiedlichen Materialien, setzt Malerei und Performance ein, um das zu ergründen, was unsichtbar ist oder gerade unterhalb der Oberfläche des Bewusstseins liegt. Ihre Arbeit befasst sich mit dem Übergang zwischen unterschiedlichen Formen des Seins, wie zum Beispiel mit dem Augenblick unmittelbar vor dem Einschlafen, wenn der Geist neue Bilder hervorbringt, oder kurz nach dem Aufwachen, wenn Traumerlebnisse den Verstand noch desorientieren. Sie erforscht die Verwirrung eines Déjà Vu, die Intuition und eine bestimmte Art der Erinnerung. Jene Gedanken, die nicht greifbar, aber bewusst im Unterbewusstsein schlummern. Zu den Themen, die sie in ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit aufgreift, gehören Straße, Transport, Infrastruktur, Elementargewalten, Gedächtnis und Sinnzusammenhänge. Sie verwebt traditionelle Materialbearbeitung (Stahlfabrikation, Papierherstellung) mit neuer Technologie (Digitalvideo und -sound). Darin spiegelt sich ihr Ansatz, die Vergangenheit mit der Gegenwart zu verknüpfen.

Felicia Glidden, geboren und aufgewachsen in Minnesota, ist seit 1989 künstlerisch tätig. Ausstellungen ihrer Werke in den USA fanden u. a. in Minnesota, Chicago, New Orleans, Maryland, Washington DC und New York statt. In Europa wurden ihre Arbeiten in Wales, England und Deutschland gezeigt. Sie besaß 20 Jahre lang ein Unternehmen für dekorative Malerei, bevor sie eine Bronze- und Eisengießerei aufbaute, wo sie die Fertigung von Formen und den Betrieb von Öfen lehrte. Bevor sie 2013 nach Deutschland zog, war sie außerordentliche Professorin an der Universität von Maryland, College Park und am Montgomery College. Derzeit lebt und arbeitet sie in Friedrichshafen und unterrichtet im Vorstudium Gestaltung der Kunstschule Bodenseekreis.

Der Vortrag – hauptsächlich in englischer Sprache – wird ca. 90 Minuten dauern und soll zur Diskussion und zu Fragen an die Künstlerin anregen. Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei. Um eine Voranmeldung bei der Jugendkunstschule wird gebeten, unter Telefon 07532-6031, täglich 8-12 Uhr oder per Mail unter info(at)kunstschule-bodenseekreis.de.

Felicia Glidden, Between Two Rivers  at Hillyer Art Space

Glidden’s work addresses transitional moments between states of being; thoughts living below the surface of others that cannot be brought to the forefront of the mind.  She considers the moment just before sleep when images begin to form, the moment just after waking when dream activities disorient, the confusion of déjà vu, intuition, and memory recall. In this site specific installation, Glidden recreates these altered states by employing elements such as controlled lighting, dark interior spaces, olfactory triggers, and  sound. The physical experience allows space for the mind to wander through a metaphoric narrative.

A secondary concern in Glidden’s work is the relationship between the past and the present, which is evident in the way she combines traditional methods of working with new technology. She creates the stacked architectural building blocks with bones of steel, each reveals handmade individuality in a conformist environment; always the same size, yet the final form has infinite potentiality. Between Two Rivers weaves together the major themes of Glidden’s work; the environment, movement, darkness and light, internal narrative, and memory into a cohesive experiential installation.

Salem Courthouse

US/UK Olympic Exhibition

June 23 – August 15

As part of the USUK Cast Iron Symposium taking place this year in Salem Art Works  and the Scottish Sculpture Workshop there is an exhibition at the Salem Courthouse. This sculpture was cast at USUK in Salem, NY in 2006, and it was the first sculpture in the Matris Fe series which I have cast 11 to date. The pattern of wood and foam was one piece and it was too large to cast as one piece.  This summer is they are finally together again. The sister sculptures for these two are installed at Franconia Sculpture Park in MN. I am looking for good homes for these outdoor pieces  before I move to Germany at the end of the year.  More info on the usuk symposium here.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

For further information contact:  Ebony Dumas10.26.11 ebony@transformergallery.org | 202.483.1102Transformer is pleased to present our first comprehensive Storefront Video exhibition:

S t o r e f r o n t   V i d e o

O c t o b e r 2 9  – D e c e m b e r   4,   2 0 1 1 Nearly a year after Transformer’s December 1, 2010 storefront screening of an edited version of David Wojnarowicz’s A Fire in My Belly, screened in a direct response to the Smithsonian Institution’s censorship of a similar work from the National Portrait Gallery’s Hide/Seek exhibition, Transformer revisits the use of our storefront space as a way to interact with audiences through the sidewalk presentation & viewing of video.  Working in collaboration with  a diverse range of artists and organizations in the development of this program, Transformer launches Storefront Video with works from the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum’s ARTLAB+ program, a design studio for teens (www.artlabplus.si.edu).

ARTLAB+ guest filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu, curator of the ARTLAB+ Film Forum program, has guest curated a special selection of Film Forum videos especially for Transformer’s Storefront Video exhibition.  Storefront Video launches at noon on Saturday, October 29 with Cameltooth Curtain, 2005 and Whip What Stat, 2009  by CamLAB (a Jemima Wyman and Anna Mayer Collaboration), as well as  Untitled, 2009 by  Akosua Adoma Owusu. This screening will run continuously through to 11:59am on Monday, October 31.  Additional works from the ARTLAB+ Film Forum program, as well as works by teen participants of ARTLAB+ will screen each weekend throughout the run of Storefront Video.

Participating Artists include: I r  a  m   P  a  r  v  e  e  n   B  i l a  l ,  L a  u  r a   B  o  u  z a  ,   J u  l i a   B  r o  w  n  ,   C  a  m  L a  b  ,   D  i a  n  a-S o  f i a   E s t r a  d  a  ,   K  e v i n   J e r o  m  e   E v e r s o  n ,   C  h a  r l e s  F a  i r b  a  n k s ,   L i n d  s a  y   F o  s t e r ,   V  i c t o  r i a   F u ,   H  o  n g   H  u y n h ,   E l i z a   H  i t t m  an ,   C  a r o  l i n e   K  e y ,   A  s s i a   L a k h l i f,  E l a n a   M  a n n ,   K i r t h i   N  a t h ,   N  a t a s h a   N  g a i z a ,   J u l i e   O  r s e r ,   S t e p ha n i e   O  w  e n s ,   A  k o s u a   A  d o m  a  O w u s u ,   A l i   P r o s c h ,   D  i n o r a h   d e   J e s u s   R o d r i g u e z ,   E l l e n i   S c l a v e n i t i s ,   A p r i l   T o t t e n ,  C a r l i n   W  i n g ,  Z i n a   S a r o-W i w a ,  & M i c h i k o   Y a o.

In tandem with these  ARTLAB+  artists,  Storefront Video will  also  feature works by:    F o  r e s t   A  l l r e a  d  ,   W  i l s o  n  B u t t e r w  o r t h ,   M  i c a e l a   D  u r a n d ,   B i l l y   F r i e b e l e ,   F e l i c i a   G  l i d d e n ,   T r a v i s   H  a l l e n b e c k ,   M  i c h a e l   D  a x  I a  c  o  v  o  n  e  ,  C a r o l i n a   M  a y o r g a ,   W i l l i a m   M c K e n n a ,  K e n d a l l   N  o r d i n ,  B a r t   O  ’ R e i l l y ,   J o r d a n   S w  a r t z ,  L i s a   M  a  r i e   T  h  a  l h  a  m  me r  and more!

Transformer will close out Storefront Video December 1-4, 2011with a special screening of Untitled, a new videowork by Jim Hodges, Carlos Marques da Cruz, and Encke King. Marking World AIDS Day / Day With(out) Art 2011, Untitled is a non-linear montage of archival and pop footage recalling the passionate activism sparked by the early years of the AIDS crisis. Un-spooling at multiple levels, the narrative flies between scenes of tragic brutality to kitschy humor, arch clips of laughter and ironic surprises while shredding traditional chronology. Many references – the title, short excerpts from Golden Girls and Dynasty, popular songs, and contemporary issues – nod towards Felix Gonzalez-Torres’  oeuvre, but the film is not an attempt to portray the artist; rather, it places the viewer “in his room.” In this way, the framing of the artist becomes a means to project any number of people, endlessly.  This video is present courtesy of Visual AIDS: http://visualaids.blogspot.com/

ArtLab is a dynamic and dedicated community space in the Hirshhorn Museum’s Sculpture Garden. It gives DC area teens access to up-to-date technology, the support of artist-mentors, and access to the vast physical and virtual resources of the Smithsonian. The space has a sound booth, gaming area, and DropZone  – a regular afterschool program with weekend hours. Teens can drop in to play video games, socialize with friends, accessequipment, meet with mentors or in clubs, plan productions or take a workshop. They create their own experience and the museum supports them with resources to build & realize their own projects. Regular workshops with artist experts draw inspiration from the collection, current exhibitions or the DC community. Many of the projects teens create through ARTLAB+ programs are challenge-based with real world applications to the museum or their communities.

t   r   a   n   s   f   o   r   m   e   r   is a Washington, DC based 501 (c) 3 artist-centered non-profit visual arts organization, providing a consistent, supportive, and professional platform for emerging artists to explore and present experimental artistic concepts,build audiences for their work, and advance their careers.  A catalyst and advocate for contemporary artists and emergent expression in the visual arts, Transformer connects and promotes emerging visual artists within regional, national and international contexts through exhibition and programs partnerships with artists, curators, commercial galleries, museums and other cultural institutions.

I am fundraising for a new sculpture i am hoping to build at the second part of the international artists residency Salem2salem which starts in August 1st at Salem Art Works in upstate New York.  A classic American sedan is embedded half way into a hill and converted into a solar powered theater complete with surround sound.

 

July 8th I worked  in collaboration with Verenna, Alain and Gunther in an experimental performance where Verenna and I moved in front of a black screen triggering virtual points in space which activated the sound. Alain added sound loops and live accompianment, and Gunther developed the software to make it possible.

An exploration of time, space and sound with a fair share of chaos.

 

Iron Maidens
18 June – 23 July 2011

Denbigh Library Wales, UK

“Liquid iron forms the core of the earth and courses through our bodies in the form of haemoglobin. It is the stuff of legends all over the world and its development into useable material has transformed our culture and environment….. In the last fifteen years cast iron has become part of the contemporary sculptural repertoire and Wales is becoming a European centre of excellence in this material” (from Robert Harding, Inheritors of the Vulcan Tradition).

Exhibiting Artists include Alison Lochhead, Carrie Phoenix, Kate Hobby, Justine Johnson, Sarah Clover, Felicia Glidden, Cynthia Handel, Tamsie Ringler,  Simone Bizzell-Browning, Dilys Jackson, Theresa Smith, Julie Ward &  Coral Lambert .

June 2011

Intersections features a group of artists from the University of Maryland- College Park graduate program who explore the use of print media in combination with sculpture, installation, painting and drawing. Most of these artists do not use printmaking as part their main conceptual or technical process, but instead intersect with print to form new avenues within their own art making. These works also investigate the integration of digital processes and photomechanical techniques to push the boundaries of current printmaking aesthetic and practice, while expanding the role printmaking plays in the contemporary art world.

Reception 6-8pm June 11, 2011

“Immersion”
Herman Maril Gallery is proud to present Immersion, a new sculptural sound installation by Felicia Glidden. Working with text, sculpture, light, and sound, Glidden continues to explore her interest in the parallels of waking life with dream life. Immersion explores metaphors in many layers with a primary focus on our relationships with water and with each other. The 5.1 channel audio includes text from Glidden’s twenty year archive of dreams, environmental sounds and music recorded at a recent residency Salem2Salem in Germany.

This work considers how our treatment of each other resonates into our environment in both positive and negative ways. Fifty dreams involving water are spoken in a layered soundtrack. Whereas dream life affords the ability to breath under water, Immersion provides an entry into an internal landscape.

5.1.channel Dolby surround. 34:22 minutes
choir and music in sound track includes artists:
USA: Kate Christensen, Brendan Fitzgerald, Peter Lundberg, and Max Sharam. additional text by: Dee Hooper . Germany: Dorle Ferber, Uli Johannes Kieckbusch, Bernhard Thomas Klein, Christian Von Der Goltz. France: Remy Trevisan, original dream sequence composition by Alain Wozniak.

Iron Maidens at Art Central, Gale of Glamorgan in Barry Wales, March 2-27
Art Central celebrates International Women’s Day 2010
Professor Teresa Rees, from the Cardiff School of Social Sciences based at Cardiff University, opened the exhibition. Professor Rees, who is an advocate for women’s work and rights, expressed her delight in being asked to open the exhibition and was extremely impressed by the artist talent and the high quality of the artwork on display.
The open exhibition (which runs at the gallery until 27 March) features over 75 examples of art works including an inspiring range of paintings, prints, drawings, photographs and sculptures from women artists across the south Wales area. All the pieces have been selected by the Women’s Arts Association, which works in partnership with practitioners, communities and funding bodies to develop creative opportunities for women across all art forms.
This year, it is also supported by pieces from the Iron Maidens exhibition, consisting of sculptures and drawings by British and American women who work in cast iron.
Dilys Jackson, founder of Iron Maidens, said: “All of us have iron in our blood and working with the medium is an enticing, exciting art form that really does become a way of life. It’s wonderful that this exhibition has been put together as the very nature of casting iron requires artists to work in groups. Many of the women exhibiting, who are from both the UK and the USA, have worked together at some point. It’s a very sociable medium with wonderful results.”
International Women’s Day is a world-wide event which recognises and celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Made of Dreams at Marion Royael Gallery Feb 13 – Feb-March 11
Marion Royael presents “Made of Dreams” the artwork of Michael Krasowitz, Felicia Glidden and Danielle Andrews

Marion Royael Gallery is pleased to present the artwork of surreal painter Michael Krasowitz, Sculptor Felicia Glidden and the Pop art creations of Danielle Andrews. The exhibition will open Saturday, February 13th with an artists reception from 6-10pm and run through March 11th. All are welcome to attend the reception. For additional information email info@marionroyaelgallery.com

Michael Krasowitz’s deconstructs the individual psyche to reach universal truths and archetypes. Krasowitz utilizes techniques of the original surrealists such as automatic drawing and meditation to achieve these goals. Felicia Glidden explores the visual language of the subconscious, to see if it can speak to a larger audience than just the dreamer, through her cast bronze and metal sculptures. Danielle Andrew’s paints abstractly with a pop art flair and her work emits a casual feeling of well being.

“Michael Krasowitz’s surreal paintings are extremely innovative and well executed .” says Steven Paul Riddle, Co-Owner of the Gallery. “Each of these artists make a very strong statement on their own and to see their individual work in one place at one time, is truly a treat!”

Marion Royael Gallery is located in the midst of the vibrant artistic community of Beacon, New York which boasts many fine art venues, www.beaconarts.org, top notch restaurants and a bevy of interesting and unique boutiques.

The Ped Pex Power Pod relies on visitor’s energy and stamina to pedal their way to a cup of hot coffee, tea or cocoa. A social sculpture and experiment in green energy, we are creating bicycle generators and are hoping you, our guests, will have enough pedal power to provide hot drinks for all. We ask visitors to bring a cup or thermos. Although we will have in house mugs, no foam or paper cups will be distributed. Bring your book club or coffee clutch and generate some heat.
