KREUZBERG PAVILLON AT KNIPSU

Knipsu, Komediebakken 9

Have you ever carried a work of art? How does the weight and the form of an artwork really feels, how heavy is it and what to do with it in an exhibition, where none of these works will have a steady place? You may pass the work to another visitor.

In this international project space exchange the Berlin based project Kreuzberg Pavillon hosts a wearable artshow at KNIPSU in Bergen, with 30 works by artists from Berlin and the nordic countries, that can be carried around and exchanged by the audience throughout the evening. A one-night event to expect the unexpected.

A group of artists, extending their own practice to the creation of new institutional settings started Kreuzberg Pavillon as an ongoing series of group shows happening every saturday in the district Kreuzberg in Berlin. Following its script over the past three years, Kreuzberg Pavillon has become one of the most active project spaces, mixing artistic practice with cultural activism in over 120 shows, and setting a new focus on alternative scripts for the presentation of artistic work.

Participating artists: Kiyoshi Yamamoto, Clemens Wilhelm, Ernst Dan Widh, Anna Törrönen, Achim Stiermann, Mariann Steiro, Tonje Høydahl Sorli, Simon Skuteli, Mari Sivertsen Norddahl, Oliver Roura, Mr. Peluche, Anne Marte Overaa, Arne Skaug Olsen, Maarja Nuurk, Olof Nimar, Paula Muhr, Eva Ljosvoll, Malin Lennström-Örtwall, Rasmus Hungnes featuring Ellen Ringstad, Azusa Kuno, Kathrin Köster, Nina Hannah Kornatz, Kveta Kazmukova, Sarah Hillebrecht, Kari Anne Helleberg, Bahri Johna Hansen, Jonathan Jung / Michel Wagenschütz, Hilde Frantzen, Benedikt Dichgans, Eleanor Clare, Wera Buck, Thomas Behling

Lager

Sarah Jost og Petra Rahm med utstilling på Visningsrommet USF

[…] Vad du ärvde av din mamma. Vad hon ärvde av sin. Inget av det har egentligen något värde. Inte ens ett sentimentalt. Du rensar bort allt du inte vet priset på. Det är legitimt att bränna det som är brännbart, att sortera glas, plast och metall. Ett liv är till slut summan av sina ägodelar. Och på samma sätt kommer du att bli summan av dina ägodelar och jag av mina. Panorera över platserna du bott på, alla saker som knöt dig fast i tillvaron. Nu är både du och jag så gamla som vi är. Eftersom vi lever och de döda inte gör det är vi ändå bättre än de. De har blivit en sorts förlorare.

Utdrag ur Inventering, en kort tekst skrevet av Lisa Him-Jensen for denne utstillingen.

I Lager vil det vises installasjon, skulptur, tegning og tekst.

Åpning 22. august 19.00

Åpent 23.-24. august og 26.-31. august 14.00-19.00

[…] What you inherited from your mother. What she inherited from hers. None of it has any true value. Not even a sentimental one. You clear away everything you don’t know the price of. It is legitimate to burn that which is combustible, to recycle glass, plastic and metal. In the end, a life is the sum of its possessions. In the same way you will be the sum of yours and I of mine. Pan across the places you’ve stayed, all the things that kept you fastened to life. Now you and I are as old as we are. Because we are living and the dead are not, we are still superior to them. They have become losers of a sort.
