Zeitguised / Digital Art Exhibition 

Sedition presents a new work by Zeitguised at 1826 Restaurant & Lounge just steps away from the Miami Beach Convention Centre from 3-7 December. Sedition will present Cloud II, Walls created by Zeitguised, Berlin contemporary art studio. A homage to Daniel Libeskind’s early drawing work “micromegas” Cloud II, Walls builds tension between an uncontrolled catastrophe and the controlled, abstract and clean environment of the engineer’s drawing space. The piece makes it accessible to think of the two realms as one, the possibility of failure with the assertion of control and the beauty of generating the artefact within.

Cloud II, Walls will be launched as a digital edition on seditionart.com on 4 December, 2014. Clouds II, Walls will be displayed alongside further works from the artist throughout 1826 Restaurant & Lounge from 6:00pm-3:00am daily, where art lovers can ignite their senses by taking in digital art, music and fine dining for duration of the fair. Follow Zeitguised on Sedition to receive an invitation to the online private view.

Walter-Hugo-&-ZonielEchoes of Toki 2 by Walter Hugo & Zoniel

Walter Hugo & Zoniel / Site-Specific Installation

Walter Hugo and Zoniel also present their site-specific installation ‘The Physical Possibility of Inspiring Imagination in the Mind of Somebody Living‘ during Art Basel Miami Beach. Their digital collection on Sedition Echoes of Toki is derived from the original piece that was displayed in Gazelli Art House and in Toxteth, Liverpool during the Liverpool Biennial.

For Miami the artists installThe Physical Possibility of Inspiring… as a temporary, large scale site specific installation located in Buenavista East, which explores the idea of art within a public space. For this project, the shutters of the destitute house located in Buenavista will anonymously open every evening from sunset to sunrise, emanating light and revealing tanks of jellyfish filling the space within. The psychedelic display, intended to have a discordant presence and intrigue the local residents has opened silently for the community to discover with its location remaining unknown to the public until its official launch on 1 December 2014, thus allowing natural word of mouth within the community to generate interest, and ownership of the project.

As part of the durational site-specific project, Gazelli Art House will live-stream a video from within the tanks at SELECT MIAMI (7200-7300 Collins Avenue, Miami, Florida) from 2-7 December 2014, where viewers will be able to see through the tanks into the streets of the Miami suburb, revealing a virtual corridor between the two disparate sites.
