Today’s episode is part two of my interview with Korean Canadian artist Cat Lamora. Although it is possible to enjoy this instalment stand alone, I would recommend first listening to part one to have a more complete impression of Cat and their work. If you happen to be in Toronto this October Cat will be exhibiting a new work We Bathe Here at Margin of Eras Gallery (the MOEG) from the 10th until 26th of October 2019.

This two part interview with Cat Lamora was recorded by Michael Dooney on 9. April 2019 in Berlin, Germany. More details: https://www.patreon.com/posts/subtext... Continuing the series of interviews with artists who participated in the Jarvis Dooney 2019 Postcard Salon, today I'm speaking with Korean Canadian artist Cat Lamora who briefly visited Berlin during April this year. Cat was in Europe, specifically France, for the Paris Ass Book Fair an international fair that brings together publishers of artist’s books and fanzines, booksellers, and artists related by their exploration of taboos, sex and gender. Cat was there with Paris based Korean French collective Studio HAP and the Sad Art Store from Toronto. I’ve split this conversation in two parts as we spoke at length not only about Cat’s work, but how their unique personal narrative has shaped their view of the world. Growing up as a Korean immigrant in Canada, being part of the LGBTQ community, addressing internalised racism and coming to terms with the myriad realities of cultural identity.

This interview with Kees Schouten was recorded by Michael Dooney on 17. April 2019 in Berlin, Germany. First uploaded on 16. July 2019, more information: https://www.patreon.com/posts/subtext... Kees is a Dutch visual artist who graduated from the Art Academy of Amsterdam in 1984. His early works were primarily abstract oil paintings. From around 1995 he shifted almost exclusively to photographic work, though his process is still very much associated with the techniques of abstract painting.

Interview with Sophie Dumaresq was recorded by Michael Dooney on Thursday 4. October 2018 in Berlin. First uploaded on 15. June 2019: https://www.patreon.com/posts/subtext... ---------- Finally managed to finish editing my interview with Sophie Dumaresq from September 2018. Sophie was in Berlin for the European Month of Photography, together with Kate Robertson and Derek Kreckler. We first exhibited Sophie's work at Jarvis Dooney in 2016, coincidentally with Kate Robertson & another emerging artist Jacqueline Ball: http://photography-now.com/exhibition... This is the third of three interviews recorded during Berlin Art Week & EMOP Berlin 2018. Sophie Dumaresq (b. 1991 Canberra, Australia) is an artist working in photo media in addition to large and small scale sculptural installation. Her work explores symbiotic cycles of consumption, destruction and creation demonstrating how as a species we relate, show empathy and evolve with and within our surrounding environment. In 2009 she attended a student internship program at Questacon The Australian National Centre for Science and Technology. She completed her Diploma in Photography (honours) at Spéos International photography school - Paris & London and has participated in group exhibitions in Australia, France, Greece and Germany. She is based in Canberra, Australia. ---------- SOPHIE DUMARESQ http://sophiedumaresqphotography.com/ https://www.instagram.com/kaleidoscop... https://www.facebook.com/sophiedumare... https://twitter.com/Sophie_Dumaresq JARVIS DOONEY GALERIE www.jarvisdooney.com www.facebook.com/jarvisdooney/ www.instagram.com/jarvisdooney/ www.twitter.com/jarvisdooney www.patreon.com/JarvisDooney MICHAEL DOONEY www.michaeldooney.net www.instagram.com/michaeldooney/ www.twitter.com/michaeldooney_

This episode of Subtext & Discourse was first uploaded on 7. April 2019 - https://www.patreon.com/posts/subtext... Interview with Derek Kreckler was recorded by Michael Dooney on Wednesday 3. October 2018 in Berlin. ---------- It has already been over six months since Berlin Art Week and the 8th EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography festival. As mentioned in the earlier interview with Kate Robertson, we hosted three major solo exhibitions during that time; as well as recording a number of interviews with the visiting artists. I was hoping to have uploaded the conversation with Derek before now, but didn't manage due to a number of items which I'll discuss more at a later date. In the mean time I hope you enjoy the interview. ---------- Kreckler’s works span performance, film, photography, installation, and video. He has regularly created tough, insistent imagery that has been at the critical edge of Australian art history and which has provided comment on our country’s past, present, and future. The art of Derek Kreckler is often described as “unsettling.” Some have even referred to it as “dangerous.” Whether relishing the risk of experimentation and chance, or purposefully challenging our perceptions of country, identity, and self, Kreckler’s works flirt with an uncertainty that prickle the neck. At the same time, they open our eyes to the magic of how images are made, the murkiness of nationhood and its perpetuation, and the wonder of how powerful the landscape can be. His works have much to share about art history, social relations, popular culture, and the environment. Kreckler offers conceptual and expressive forms that are commanding, yet spacious. Hannah Mathews, Curator of Accident & Process. ---------- More information at the following link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/subtext... Impressions of opening night, 25.

The interview with Kate Robertson & Jeffrey Noro was recorded with Michael Dooney on Saturday 29. September 2018 at Jarvis Dooney Galerie, Berlin. First uploaded here: http://www.patreon.com/posts/subtext-ep3-kate-22330488 Hard to believe that is has already been a month since Berlin Art Week and the opening of the 8th EMOP Berlin, European Month of Photography festival. During that time we presented three significant solo exhibitions throughout the city: Australian Embassy Germany: Derek KrecklerJarvis Dooney Galerie: Kate RobertsonKünstlerhaus Bethanien: Anne Zahalka We were lucky enough to have both Kate Robertson and Derek Kreckler visiting Berlin during this very busy time, and took the opportunity to recording individual interviews with each of them. Sophie Dumaresq, who we exhibited a few year ago was also in Berlin for EMOP, an interview with her will also be online soon. Kate Robertson is an artist we’ve been exhibiting since 2014 when we presented her series Celestial Body Model during our Transcendental abstract photography group exhibition, since then we’ve curated work from her Dust Landscapes series and Cosmic Walks into other shows, however this will be her first solo exhibition with us and also her first international solo exhibition. RECORDING THE MEDICINAL PLANTS OF SIWAI, BOUGAINVILLE This photographic series documents medicinal plants from the Siwai region on Bougainville Island (Papua New Guinea) at a time of significant change in its cultural and political landscape. It considers new photographic modes for sensitively engaging with deep and living histories, by aligning analogue and digital characteristics found within the image and local knowledge systems. Lumen prints are created on location in a cameraless method, through a reaction between environmental elements such as sunlight and plant extractions and light-sensitive paper, resulting in a residual imprint of the plant's chemical properties. The lumen prints, in their latent state, journeyed to Australia for a digital “fixing” process and are translated into data through the scanography process. The series acknowledges the communities (urgent) desire for equilibrium between traditional and new knowledge systems, to allow both to thrive in an increasingly global society.

On 2. September 2018 gallerist Michael Dooney sat down with German photographer Torsten Schumann (b.1975 Dresden, Germany) to find out more about his artistic practice and back story. The interview coincided with the dual exhibition Autofokus with Torsten Schumann & David Schikora at Jarvis Dooney Galerie in Berlin. “Torsten Schumann‘s photographs highlight the absurdity of life, that brief second in the day when chance creates a surreal juxtaposition, a moment of silliness, profundity, irony, a tell that exposes the world for what it is, a pointless journey towards inevitable death that’s intermittently interrupted by a comical situation that distracts us from our existential angst. The nightmare of ordinariness that we, as people, manage to turn into a drama of Greek proportions, full of tragedy and farce."

On 1. May 2018 gallerist Michael Dooney sat down with artist Chris Fortescue to speak about his artistic practice and back story, to coincide with his solo exhibition at Jarvis Dooney Galerie in Berlin from Friday 27. April until Saturday 23. June 2018. Chris Fortescue (b.1953) is a multidisciplinary artist working across sound, installation, animation, and photomedia, often incorporating found images and objects.
