artists & participants
Berlin-based duo Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff present a configuration of old and new works centred around their investigation into consumption and connectivity of entrepreneurial start-ups. An excerpt from a novel-in-progress by New York-based artist and writer Emily Segal (co-founder of the collective K-HOLE and former creative director at Genius) bridging the worlds of technology and art will run alongside their work, unfolding in three parts over the course of the exhibition.
Para | Fictions Foreword is presented as part of Para | Fictions a cycle of sustained investigations taking as its focus the relationship between literature and visual art through the practice of five artists; Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff, Mark Geffriaud, Laure Prouvost, Oscar Santillan, and Lucy Skaer. Each project on display presents a different artistic methodology, constituting a combination of each artist’s visual interests and literary underpinnings, to seek the viability of repositioning ‘reference’ as ‘form’, ‘translation’ as ‘co-authorship’.
