Artist talk with Tilman Wendland (artist, Berlin) and Solvej Helweg Ovesen (curator Berlin/Copenhagen)

Thursday, December 10, 2009, 7 pm

(lifePR) (Berlin, ) The spatial installations of Tilman Wendland celebrate what is already there (space, artworks and visitors). Wendland is inspired by the Austrian artist and graphic designer Herbert Bayer (1900-1985), Bayer collaborated with various members of the Bauhaus movement. Untitled was influenced by Bayer's approach to exhibition design, which took into account the viewer's field of vision. Bayer's Diagram of 360 Degrees Field of Vision (1935) integrates the viewer's body as central point of departure for exhibition design and places display surfaces in the whole field of vision, not just at eye height, but also above and below. The installation Untitled showcased at n.b.k. addresses the exhibition space as a stage not only for the artworks, but also for the viewers. Wendland uses light materials that are easy to craft like white cardboard and wooden panels. Creating a parcours that guides visitors through the show, Wendland's partitions are easily marked and bear traces of their handling during the installation process, wear from visitor interaction, and the inevitable effects of gravity.

Tilman Wendland (*1969 in Potsdam) lives and works in Berlin. Solo shows: CoCA Centre of Contemporary Art, Torun (2010), Autocenter (2009) and Jet (2007), both in Berlin, MMIII Kunstverein Mönchengladbach (2006) and Gallery Koch und Kesslau, Berlin. Group exhibitions: Former State Mint, Berlin, Musée de l''Objet, Blois, Museum Felix De Boeck, Drogenbos, Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, Mexico-City (all in 2008).

Talk in German / admission free
