      Ongoing

      Third Text is a highly-regarded bi-monthly journal offering critical perspectives on art and culture.

      www.thirdtext.org
      thirdtext@btconnect.com

      Third Text has established its key position at the critical interface of contemporary art practice and theory with specific focus on the impact of ‘globalization’. In its twenty-six year history the journal has created an archive of knowledge production to benefit artists, researchers and art historians worldwide.

      Third Text took a pioneering interest in the exclusionary zones of ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’ and challenged Eurocentric and ethnocentric notions inherent to aesthetic criteria that marginalized or neglected the work of culturally diverse contemporary artists. The journal moved on to develop its postcolonial discourse in the direction of institutional critique, and it now seeks to address the complex cultural realities that are emerging and competing for recognition in the globalized artworld.

      The crucial issue today is the critical appraisal of contemporary art in the context of this globalized artworld, without a centre, and yet one where the spectre of neocolonialism is ever present. What are the commercial and institutional forces that are shaping art history today? Who is deciding on the present ‘value’ of art and for which audience?

      Third Text has adapted its goals to the changing conditions of the global artworld but its fundamental aim remains the advancement of contemporary art practice in the context of of the art market and institutional forces that obstruct a truly critical perspective on the reception and evaluation of art.

      Third Text has been instrumental in launching a series of independent art journals: Third Text Asia in Pakistan; Third Text Africa in South Africa, Tercer Texto in Peru, and the forthcoming Terceiro Texto in Brazil. Third Text has also published numerous books on art, under its former Kala Press and current Third Text Publications imprints, and is planning further publications.

      Six issues are published annually, online and in print by Routledge, Taylor & Francis, UK. The journal invites contributions to its special and general issues.

      Otto Placht, Energia Prima
      PREVIEW 28th November 6-10pm

      A free spirit spontaneously wandering from Prague to Amazonia and back, Otto Placht is often referred to as a painter of the jungle or a painter of ayahuasca. But he is first and foremost a seeker astride two cultures and two realities, unwilling or unable to choose just one. Much like his monumental canvases, his journeys are transformative and remain forever on-going.

      “Fear of pain, love, death, immortality, self-awareness, lifelong confinement of inhumanity, of vaulting eternity. It dawned. A plane of blue and black that I don’t see. What is it? It´s black, it´s alive, only truth is white. The most tender picking of head lice.
      Bark.

      I have already mentioned it. Ayahuasca is death, knowledge, a stigma of life, balance. A potion from the river of lights. A state of mind chilled in recognizable peace after enduring insanity. Weeks of rainforest solitude where the collapse of time breaks down the technological maturity of the higher species of human uniformity.
      And the wind will bring a flow of rain.”

      Otto Placht

      Placht first travelled to Peru in 1993 after having exhibited in Miami alongside a Peruvian shaman, Pablo Amaringo. Intrigued by the mystical dimension of Amaringo´s drawings, he visited him in Pucallpa and later built a house and started a family in San Francisco, a Shipibo tribal village in the jungle. Like a long line of European painters before him, he was seeking inspiration in unknown lands, but it is Placht’s sensitivity, childlike curiosity and immense artistic talent that have enabled him to develop an exceptionally authentic approach to the creative process that raises his work far beyond the realm of mere exoticism. While his large scale paintings remain semi-abstract and symbolic, it is the smaller diary drawings and aquarelles of everyday life in the village that reveal both his skills of observation and of painting.
      Distinctive in their style, format and hue, Placht´s paintings form an integrated vision of the artist´s personal experience of the Peruvian Amazonian culture and spirituality, and of the ecosystem of the “madre selva”. They possess an immediate disturbing vitality evocative of the jungle – the trees, flowers and seeds of which are used to produce them – and the general chaos of life that can only occasionally be balanced.
      Otto Placht draws a large part of his creative energy and inspiration from shamanic rituals and trance states which he experienced among the Shipibo tribe and under the influence of ayahuasca, the sacred hallucinogenic brew. He also refers to the Shipibo fractal-like patterns use on textiles and ceramics. With their flamboyant colours and multitudes of shapes, structures, plants, figures and strange creatures of the jungle, Placht´s canvases hold their own hallucinatory quality. They are part memory, part vision, half open doors to new perceptions for the un-initiated.

      Otto Placht (*1962) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, Czech Republic. He began as an expressive painter in the 1980s, and was considered one of the biggest talents of his generation. From his Central European roots he draws his relationship towards symbolism, mystical decadence, surrealistic expression and new figural painting. In 1993 he visited Peru for the first time and has been returning ever since transforming his first-hand knowledge and personal experience into striking works of art distinctive in their style and creative energy inspired by shamanic rituals of the Shipibo tribe. He is also engaged in studying and protecting the ecological structure of the Amazonian rainforest. Otto Placht has exhibited widely and taught painting in the Czech Republic and Latin America.

      Otto Placht‘s first ever London show will open in Divus London from November 28 until January 24, 2015. For the occasion, the artist will create a site specific work.

      Private view on Friday November 28 at 6pm at Divus.

      Preview: Friday 30 January, 7-9pm
      A short introduction by former members of PP will take place at 18.45 on that day. Reserve a place here.
      Open Saturdays and Sundays til 15 March, 12 to 6pm

      Who killed Présence Panchounette? And was it in self-defence? Premeditated, a long time coming? Death by misadventure, shot themselves in the foot? A staged disappearance? or were they ambushed?

      news of the world sets an investigation room to try and review the facts, through photographs, images of crime scene, enlargements, physical reconstructions, pictorial evidence and historical objects, so a profile can be established. Former members will be present on Friday 30 January to testify.

      Their 1969 manifesto immediately set them apart from their contemporaries: ‘Panchounette’s goal is not subversion… Everything is fine’.

      This declaration prefigures 20 years of combat. Their targets: the art scene, nay…system!, the official authorities, the avant-gardes, the general lack of gut, Beuys, Koons, Cragg, Buren, or anything which professes to subvert yet perpetuates the order. They act recklessly, without sentimentality or remorse and they take no prisoners.

      The guerrilla performances show the bravado of irresponsible, confrontational artists who regard the type of transgression, seriously served, eagerly sought and advocated by subsidised art institutions, as a suspicious and grotesque convention.

      Theirs will be the voice of the mediocre, the expression of the working class, the ordinary of the provincial, the naivety of the self-taught, the snigger of the childish. Stupidity and incoherence, derision and contempt will be their weapons of choice: private view invitations to a traffic accident, public art gift to Bordeaux of a fake decorated garden well, the artist world boxing championships, self-advertising/self-denouncing graffiti, fake brick wallpaper hanging on concrete bunker walls.

      They will argue that despite everything aesthetic taste does remain the core driver of critical judgment in contemporary art, and that this is a taste dictated and guarded by an initiated, ‘discerning’ class, the establishment. Under a pretence of existing beyond social divisions, contemporary art’s purpose is to safeguard inequality and protect it with an infantry of professional social commentators.

      Presence Panchounette’s first gallery exhibition in Paris brings mass-produced home decoration and designs into the gallery space: the psychedelic wallpaper inside recalls Bridget Riley, the fake-brick adhesive on the windows (“8.7cm wide”) parodies Daniel Buren. The story told as a farce: intellectual endeavours, repeated, become decoration; subversion, when nothing is at stake, is a production line.

      Présence Panchounette aim to wreck the hierarchies which still hold: good/bad taste, high/low art, western/rest of the world; they champion art as industrially produced (without artists), the emotion of kitsch; that which never disappoint because expectations were low; the object which does not quite function in its context; the punny titles which undermine attempts to address the works seriously; the effects which falls short of the ambition; the cheap decoration outflanking the high production values –décor too-; the real rather than the token gesturing at reality.

      By the late 1980s, it was all going so well for them. Their work exhibited at the Cartier Foundation, Villa d’Arson, Hamburg Kunstverein, Paris FIAC, Stuttgart, Seoul and L.A.. In 1990, a public commission in the offing. The kiss of death for any self-respecting artist. Recognition comes in both senses: their work –which fought against status- receives status, and their objects acquire familiarity, branding, taste and so, surely, predictability. The scene has caught up -eclecticism is in-, learned how to handle them –after all, it thrives on detournement-, and it can do business with them. The success is a clear sign of their failure. They quit.

      The investigation evokes a recent bygone art world which, in 2015, is difficult to comprehend: institutionalised artists yearning for the official approval of their object-based multi-media radicalism, institutions keeping the 1960s dreams alive on a drip, with homeopathic dilutions of criticality, a world where the freshest post-ism already looks great in the collector’s rooms & ‘could I have some more?’, where privilege breeds authority and where the authority creates the consensus.

      Présence Panchounette are dead and I for one will not miss them. Everything really IS fine now.
