With his project “The Sinking World“ Andreas Franke brings a strange, forgotten underwater world back to life and stages realms of an unprecedented kind. The pictures engender extreme polarities: the soft, secretive underwater emptiness of sleeping shipwrecks is paired with real, authentic sceneries full of liveliness and vigor, thus creating a new world, equally bizarre and irresistibly entangling.
The resting giants at the bottom of the sea do not only form fascinating and unique backgrounds for Andreas Franke’s sceneries. They also constitute the best exhibition sites imaginable. These spectacular underwater galleries make divers fall under their spell and display the work of the ocean itself. During the weeks and months under water the ocean bequeaths impressive, peerless traces to the pictures. It adorns them with a certain, peculiar patina, endowing them with the countenance of bizarre evanescence and transfiguring them into rare beauties.

Together with algae and microorganisms the salt water adorned the pictures from the world above. It is the individual signature of the ocean that embellishes the photographs, a bizarre touch of impermanence. The photographs were sealed with plexiglass and put into stainless steel frames with magnets, then finally carefully attached to the ship’s sides. It was a subtle process with great care taken not to disturb the ecological balance of the marine life around and not to damage the Vandenberg. A method which would also allow the pictures to be easily removed later on.

More than ever before, public artworks are stimulating and inviting active dialogue rather than just passive observation, thereby fostering social interaction that can even lead to a sense of social cohesion among the viewers themselves. Maybe this is happening because artists are no longer afraid to see themselves as resources, facilitators, and collaborators, of a new perspective. The narrative and design of GIANTS IN THE CITY moves away from reverence for textbook ideals and toward flexibility, changeability, evolution, and an appreciation for humanity.

What secrets are hidden on the other side of The Hedge? Take a peek through the windows into the video installation to find out…The Hedge is a statement about a culture of inequality and it represents the exclusionary world often hidden behind high, dense green hedges. My hedge, though tall and imposing, has windows cut into it; here the two worlds may pass through and experience each other. People on both sides of these hedges suffer as a result of this isolating method of living. The beautiful green of the living hedge renders it invisible as a method of enforcing a social system of privilege and want.

In the mid eighties, while holding a diplomatic position, he lived in India and China, where he participated in various cultural events. In New Delhi, the “Dhoomi Mall Gallery”, considered the best art space at that time, gave him the opportunity to show his work and to interact and form liaisons with the exponents of the vanguard neo-symbolist, informalist and neo-tantric movements of that country. Among them are names that are now reference of contemporary art from India, such as Swaminathan, SatishGujurat, Santosh, Francis Souza, etc., etc. During this period he was warmly welcomed by critics and the international press in India and began his experimentations in “object-painting”, adding sequins and textile to his artistic research. Subsequently, he studied calligraphy in Beijing, China and ‘Bantu’ art, in Libreville, Gabon, Central Africa.
He currently alternates living in Rio, Paris, New York and Caracas, and serves as advisor to institutions devoted to the development of  “Alternative Energy” projects. He is also dedicated to painting, printing,writing and compiling his books, which summarize his collaboration in the project “Graphic-Visual Poetry”, developed by the european group “Campanotto”. He has promoted in New York several aesthetic manifestations, like: “Khromatone” and “B2art”.

IRREVERSIBLE MAGAZINE & PROJECTS are inspired by the Danish artist Palle Nielsen’s project The Model: A Model for a Qualitative Society, that took place in 1968 at the Moderna Museet Stockolm – a playground in the museum – where Nielsen posed questions such as to have the chance for the artists to “become themselves,” and express their own reality through play in a setting unfettered by the urban environment and adapted to their energetic activity. One of Nielsen’s big achievements was to open doors to discuss how this project takes art and activism’s in new directions, functioning precisely like a model: a small-scale, concrete experiment with speculative potential.
