I just discovered the French artist Jean-Luc Moulène (born in the champagne city of Reims, 1955), who currently has his first solo-exhibiton at Miguel Abreu gallery in New York. The show is comprised of a variety of ‘objects’ from Opus - a body of work which Mouléne has been working on since 1995. Besides the ‘objects’ made in materials such as bronze, knotted glass and sculpted cement, are two drawing and four photographs.
Above is a few installation view images from Jean-Luc Moulène’s current exhibition Torture Concrete at the Miguel Abreu gallery in New York (ends in two days, October 31).
Se/read more on Contemporary Art Daily (a great site if you want to stay on top of what’s up in the (fine) art world… also where I ragged the images).
Below is a couple of images of previous work by Jean-Luc Moulène:
Another one of his concrete sculptures.

From his exhibition Endwards at Extra City Kunsthal, 2013.

This has to be one of the most interesting events I have heard of in a long time. A combined cocktail event and science talk about lucid dreaming by Ursula Voss.
Can you become aware during your dreams and change them? How do clocks work in the dream world? Can you use lucid dreaming to your advantage? Is lucid dreaming a natural phenomenon? What is the brain base for lucid dreaming?
A lucid dream is a dream in which a person becomes aware that he/she is dreaming. One of the first recorded references to lucid dreaming was by Marie-Jean-Léon, Marquis d’Hervey de Saint Denys. Since then, several scientists and philosophers have been intrigued by the different possible mechanisms that are set to motion in the brain during a lucid dream as well as what kind of states of awareness can the human brain produce.
In lucid dreams, the sleeper is consciously aware that the ongoing dream is not real. Sometimes but not always, the dreamer is able to change the dream plot and, for example, put a dream aggressor to flight.
Does lucid dreaming provide us with control over the supposedly uncontrollable unconscious mind?
Ursula Voss, for the first time in Denmark, will review the evidence that lucid dreaming is a real phenomenon, rare and evanescent but of significant scientific value which is only now beginning to get the recognition it deserves. Based on admittedly still limited but fast growing empirical evidence, she will give an overview over the recent scientific work and sketch a model of consciousness that replaces the outdated and merely qualitative model of the unconscious mind with a quantitative and qualitative definition of consciousness. She will also report on the first attempts to apply the insights derived from lucid dreaming research to the treatment of psychiatric illness like obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and trauma.
Later on, Feast of the Bean King, a dirty, groovy swing jazz trio with a twist of muddy blues and psychedelic rock will take the stage while chilled dreamy cocktails are being served.
About Science and Cocktails (read more here):
Science & Cocktails (est. 2010) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the communication of scientific research to the general public. The idea is to bring science and entertainment closer together by creating a series of public lectures intertwined with music/art performances and smoky dry-ice chilled cocktails in your hand.
About Ursula Voss (visit her homepage here):
Ursula Voss is lecturer and professor at J.W. Goethe-University Frankfurt, Northern Institute of Technology/Technical University Hamburg Harburg, Erfurt University, and Friedrich-Wilhelms-University Bonn. Her research focuses on attention, states of consciousness, information processing and vigilance as well as psychological sleep research.
Where: Byens Lys, Christiania’s cinema
When: Doors open at 19:00. Entrance to the event is free. No registration is necessary.
