About

For their first monographic exhibition in a Swiss institution, Eglė Kulbokaitė (*1987 Kaunas / Basel) and Dorota Gawęda (*1986, Lublin / Basel) transform Fri Art into a place of reception sensitive to the most contemporary fears. The environment created for the exhibition is a fragmented fiction in which eco-feminism theory, urban legends, witches trials, concrete geographical landmarks and impending ecological drama are mixed. Screens, sounds, smells, light effects, objects, texts address the visitor very directly and provoke his/her reflection. Through its narratives, the exhibition problematizes the distribution of the natural and the technological, the archaic and the futuristic, the real and its mediation. The "as if", the speculative aspect of fiction questions our relationship to the production of truth. Borrowings from the popular genres of science fiction and horror reflect the unstable condition of the bodies that are currently going through an identity and ecological crisis. The exhibition will extend beyond Fri Art exhibition rooms. A diorama installed in the WallRiss art space will be used as a location for filming and production. This location will also serve as a relay antenna for broadcasting in the city centre. The exhibition is imagined as a rumor spreading throughout the city of Fribourg.

Exhibition by Fri Art, Kunsthalle Fribourg in collaboration with WallRiss
