NOVEMBER 十一月, 2023

Nicholas Stewens & Villiam Miklos Andersen at SIMULACRA, Beijing, China
May 26 — July 05, 2023

SIMULACRA is pleased to present ɴᴏᴠᴇᴍʙᴇʀ 十一月, a duo-show by Danish artist Villiam Miklos Andersen and German-American artist Nicholas Stewens, on May 26th as part of Beijing Gallery Weekend 2023.
Presenting a series of paintings and mixed media works, they open up a playing field that is the public space. The contenders find themselves standing on uneven ground defined by systems of others’ logic and thought.

__

November is the month that heralds the onset of winter; the leaves have fallen, the frost has come, the colours have faded, and the landscape has become more impassable.

This scene has been described to us many times by poets and singers and screenwriters: Something succumbs to the white cold layer that abstracts the landscape. Winter symbolizes everything mundane–the end of a love or even a loved one. Snow acts as its soft executive. As winter repeats itself in a cycle, it does not need to be forecast. The cold is sure to be expected, but as one awaits it, one invites it where it doesn’ t need to be, at least in that space at that time.

Similarly, we produce a show in May called November. Exactly half a year apart. It is because we have seen this scene so many times that the ideas linger.

Shoulders, fences, playing fields, and car roofs act like personal projection surfaces. It only takes someone to pass by to subject them to their forecasts, coating them in their images and symbols of fears, expectations, guilt, and ideals that settle on them as snow does. The images that lay upon them combine to a noise that is indistinguishable from the soft shimmer the multiplicity of crystals produce. They are as cold and as much a part of the landscape, weighing down on everything they cover. Under pressure, there is not much freedom of movement. It is a harsh environment.

The scene is set; a young man enters.
