Come see my art: Netzreflexion/Selbstkonstruktion Nov 29 – Dez 12

I was invited by Art van Demon to show my piece “Re-Gram” at their upcoming exhibition Netzreflexion/Selbstkonstruktion. The show opens on the occasion of the 87. Congress of Students of Art History.

The theme of the exhibition is the search for meaning and identity in an interconnected world. It wants to touch on the themes of public vs private, real vs fiction, individual vs society. I am excited to see what the other artists will be showing there.

I will be showing another iteration of my Re-Gram piece. I have printed the last couple of months of my Instagram-feed and will let visitors interact with it in real life. Those interactions may then be photographed and re-instagrammed, creating a feedback loop of on- and offline interactions and recontextualizations.

Burnout Motel Flyer

BURNOUT 6 – 20 SEPTEMBER 2014

JULIA BORNEFELD, ROBIN GOMMEL, ELENA HABICHER, CARLO SPERANZA

The exhibition focuses on the sense/nonsense, functioning/failure of power structures and systems such as the financial system, the performance-oriented society and the art market mechanism. The idea originated from the encounter with the surroundings and the history of the Museum Bärengasse, which is located in the middle of Zurich’s financial district and galleries’ quarter. Only recently the plans to convert the building into a money museum were abandoned. The artists deal with themes such as the market crash in 2008 (Julia Bornefeld), the endemic disease of burnout (Carlo Speranza), the money laundering and black money scandals at financial institutes (Robin Gommel) and the art market’s narrow bottleneck that allows only a handful artists to achieve commercial success (Elena Habicher). Despite the artworks attempt to address the surrounding, the questions focus on how the context influences their meaning. Within the frame of an art museum the headless man wearing a suit by Bornefeld and the money laundry by Gommel might recall the horrendous prices paid for art at auctions as well as the sharp correction of the overheated art market in 2008. The installation by Speranza might remind of how top mangers ended up in burnouts, however, showcased in the context of a museum, this might also make one think of the people working in the cultural field on a self-exploitive level. The visitor himself or herself is eventually given the last contextual dimension, from his and her knowledge and associations, thus the question must be answered individually of what the meaning is actually created by.

Come see some of my Mail Art in Copenhagen!

I was invited by A Kassen (blogged about them here) to participate in Den Frie’s Summer exhibition, which they curate.

From Friday, June 22nd on until August 12th 2012, some of my Mail Art will be shown at Den Frie  Udstillingsbygning.  The opening is this Friday. The invitation reads:

On opening day there will be a performance by Simon Dybbroe Møller. In connection with the opening of LIFE CLOCK, we cordially invite you to our big summer-party at DEN FRIE Centre of contemporary art.
There will be food from Øbro Spisehus and beer on tap, all on Friday the 22. of June at 17-21.

Here is the poster for the exhibition and some text about it:

Thank you to everybody who suffered my sometimes seemingly requests for parts, comments and know-how in preparing my works for this show. I will be blogging some of them here.

If you can’t make it to the opening (but still are around some time until the exhibition closes in August), keep coming back. I will be sending new works to Den Frie until the beginning of August, which will be added to the ongoing exhibition.

I am looking forward to seeing works of all the other artists at the show on Friday. It sounds really promising.

As always, I’m happy about mail at:
