We are pleased to invite you to the opening of kim? Contemporary Art Centre’s new series of exhibitions on March 24, at 7 pm!
The second of this year’s exhibition cycles will present three solo shows:
1> “The Shakiest of Things” by Rodrigo Hernandez
Mexican artist Rodrigo Hernandez’s exhibition will consist of papier-mâché installations, which will fuse with the architecture of the exhibition space. The exhibition title is derived from Swiss novelist Robert Walser’s work The Microscripts, which was written in a very specific manner, dimensionally approaching the limits of legibility in a condensed writing format.
2> “α: Deceived Deceivers” by Ieva Kraule
Ieva’s solo-exhibition will feature sculptures and a speaking robot aka automaton, who has been named “Sofia”. The robot is a character – the opposite of its creator’s weaknesses. Visually Sofija is likened to a human face, but technically it is operated by a simple mechanism that allows the robot to move its jaw and imitate an audible audio recorded story. The exhibition will be supplemented by the artist’s essay fragments, reciting a conversation between Sofia and her creator. During the conversation, the creator of the automaton tries to understand what it means to be a machine and compares it with human nature.
3>”Draft and Float” by Maija Luutonen
Assuming the surface of paintings as a disappearing material, the works in Luutonen’s exhibition “Draft and Float” play on the relationship between time and motion, the human and his surrounding environment – architecture, nature, their relationships and proportions.
Exhibitions on view till May 7.
