Episode 7: another space
Bram Braam, Pia Greschner, Mahony, Luca Vanello, Ulrich Vogl, Wolf von Kries, Sinta Werner, Markus Zimmermann
The exhibition has been realized as part of the Artist Run festival and conference, for which 17 art spaces in Copenhagen have each invited a counterpart outside Denmark to create an exhibition in their space. Another Space has in this context invited insitu collective. Without experiencing the space first-hand, the name, floor plan, images and the imagination of the space became the starting point for working on the exhibition, that soon developed into a collection of ideas about ›another space‹ in terms of location and concept.
»Episode 7: another space« reveals works from eight Berlin based artists, which portray occupation of hostile areas, travel, adventure and the invention of illusive or alien spaces. Romantic perceptions of adventure, reflection and idle immersion are abandoned for the rational attempt to control the unknown, to appropriate places to ones own rules and to follow inclinations towards collective adaptations.
The artists all deal in the one or other way with spatial relations. Whether this means to challenge a perception or to reflect on sociological or historical components of architectures. Besides existing pieces that discuss ideas of spaces three artists have used the invitation to the show to develop new works and thus present their interpretation of another space.
The exhibition is part of insitu collective's Cycle I, which presented six episodes that dealt with fundamental questions surrounding the production of art: from the blank wall of the studio to the jungle of the art market.
