KLARA LIDEN |
10 September 2016 until 13 November 2016 Villa Salve Hospes
The Kunstverein Braunschweig shows works by Klara Liden and Karl Holmqvist. The exhibition joins different positions of the two artists and spatial assemblages that were developed collaboratively.
Klara Liden detaches every-day-objects from their functional contexts and transfers them into the environment of the exhibition as condensed urban spaces. Pasted-over with white, piled-up posters turn into panel paintings – pipes, corrugated iron sheets, and cartons create fragile constructions at different sites; some of the pieces integrate video works. In the tradition of the Beat-Generation, Karl Holmqvist transforms spoken syllables, words, and fragments of sentences into Dada lecture performances rich with citations and quotes, while the written word enters into artist books, sculptures, or wall-drawings.

GUESTROOM: ADRIANA LARA
Since early 2016 artists or curators have been invited to make use of the room, which originally served as the guestroom of the Villa Salve Hospes to comment upon and critically engage with the respective main exhibition. Upon request by Klara Liden and Karl Holmqvist, works by Adriana Lara (*1978 in Mexico City) will be shown. The artist frequently translates found objects into her own systems of order and signs.
10 September 2016 until 13 November 2016 Remise
David Douard’s inspiration is fuelled by anonymous conversations, poems, and photos from the darknet, an encoded version of the internet. All this finds its abstracted translation in hybrid objects, which oscillate between organic and technical representations. In his first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, Douard scatters traces in order to make them disappear again later. Even though some of the works seem to be inaccessible, their atmosphere – both sober and melancholic at the same time – can still be felt and experienced in a very intense way.
