It features the works of Alex Dolan, Yngve Holen, Matthew Johnstone & Max Wernér, Katja Novitskova, Ilya Smirnov and Jasper Spicero himself. “Open Shape” was divided in three different versions (‘Winter‘, ‘Spring‘ and ‘Fall‘), composing together a singular curatorial project that “…captures three seasons in the childhood of 3d printing”. The objects were also presented at the New York City Frieze on May 10, 2013 and thereafter, the objects were offered for print-on-demand via the Shapeways website.

Speculations on Anonymous Materials is a group show at the Fridericianum, Kassel (still running through January 26), featuring Ed Atkins, Alisa Baremboym, Simon Denny, Aleksandra Domanović, Josh Kline, Oliver Laric, Daniel Keller, Katja Novitskova, Jon Rafman, Timur Si-Qin, Ryan Trecartin, among many others. The show’s central conceit is digitally disseminated, artistic practice and content alike are decentralized, decontextualized and rendered ordinary, indistinguishable from the output of broader visual culture and brings together approaches in international art that reinterpret the Anonymous Materials created by rapid and incisive technological change.

Unstable Media – Curated by Anne de Vries.
Unstable Media was a collective exhibition at Galerie Martin van Zomeren, Amsterdam (June 22 – August 31, 2013 ) and curated by Anne de Vries. The exhibition brought together mostly sculptural works in which it is possible to recognize ideas of displacement, disorientation, and instability, while also using methods of digital media and photography, which in many ways “capture” frag- ments and “fixate” bits. In the rearrangements and selection of these pieces, new narratives and meanings may arise before it all falls back into the material that made it tangible, featuring the artworks of Olga Balema, Nina Beier, Spiros Hadjidjanos, Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff, Ilja Karilampi, Katja Novitskova, Ben Schumacher, Timur Si-Qin, Jordan Wolfson, among others.
