Michael Portnoy


“There’s no satire quite like the present, a fact that poses a funny challenge to contemporary comedy – or at least threatens it with redundancy.”

Magnus Edensvard

Financial Times

“‘Dealers holding on to the idea of a white cube gallery in central London are struggling, but there are also opportunities,’ says Magnus Edensvard, the founder of Ibid Gallery, who this year closed his permanent London space after 16 years in the capital. The gallery still operates in Los Angeles, where it opened in 2016, and remains in business in London in new guises.”

Centre Pompidou, Paris
15 June – 11 September 2017

Their works above all touch on an erosion of certainties, engaging in artistic meditations on discordant truths. The abolition of time and space in the digital condition marshals together, on the same plane, the most contemporary of technologies and ancient skills revived. It is through such dyschronic moments that these works interrogate the regimes of knowledge of both past and present.”

Ibid Gallery

“Those who seek to interpret collages not only keep in mind the effects a particular work might have on a viewer (surreal and uncanny are old sawhorses) but also that they must record the respective histories of the individual pieces of the whole, relaying how images and text can be repurposed, retooled, and resignified. In this way the technique has been proposed as a thoroughly modern or postmodern (pick your poison) media.”

Carsten Nicolai

St.-Anna-Kapelle, Krobitz
24 June – 10 September 2017

The work can be broadly considered as a musical instrument and draws inspiration from early designs for a pyrophone from the late 18th century. In contrast to traditional (church) organs, the sounds are produced by flames that cause glass cylinders to resonate. “
