We are very pleased to welcome at Centrum the artists Bjarki Bragason, Thomas Hörl and Marte Kiessling for their presentation of "52,4821056 + 13,4293293 = many".
Over the duration of one weekend the three artists will present an exhibition showcasing a range of new works, which they will collaboratively produce at the print workshop at Künstlerhaus Bethanien. They will furthermore each invite an additional artist from their respective country of origin, Iceland, Austria and Germany, whose works will also feature in the exhibition.
The three artists originally met while studying at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts in Listaháskoli and ever since have been meeting annually to work together on prints and multiples within the framework of a self-imposed theme. For this year’s project Bragason, Hörl and Kiessling will meet in the week from the 23rd of October to experiment with the medium of aquatint and subsequently present their results at Centrum. The title "52,4821056 + 13,4293293 = many" describes the geographical coordinates of Centrum’s location marking it as the starting point for their research. Very much like starting out from a pin on the map the project at this point is open to develop in any possible direction and into any form of presentation. Prior to the opening there will be an artist talk, in which the artists will speak about this year’s collaboration and work process as well as about previous projects.
On Sunday, the exhibition will be open between 2 and 7pm and we will offer coffee and home-baked cake.
The project realised at Centrum is generously supported by the Iceland Academy of the Arts and Muggur fund.
