AboutThe exhibition MOTOR: Bettina Buck invites Marie Lund, marks the fourth and last in a series of exhibitions where artist Bettina Buck has invited a particular artist and practice into a close dialogue to explore common or shared interests. In different ways the exhibitions circle around notions of duration and change, the fragility and de- familiarisation of materials, and narrative structures.
Previous invite exhibitions include Bettina Buck invites Peggy Frank, 2012; All my mistakes I made for you: Bettina Buck invites Laure Prouvost, 2011; Solid Objects: Bettina Buck invites Sara Barker, 2009
Bettina Buck and Marie Lund share an interest in objects material properties weight, texture and how the material develops, decomposes and performs over time. For the exhibition at Spacex the two artists present an installation of new work and site- specific interventions. The works are in different ways engaged with the surface of the object, and the surfaces of the space itself just inside of the material and just outside.
