The Dynamic Archive – Version Room mit Marie Siekmann, Bruno Barrenha, Harm Coordes
The Dynamic Archive and Circa 106 invite you to:
Residency & Ausstellung / 20. – 26.02.2023 – Opening 22.02.2023
Flatness argues everything is the same everywhere.
Nowness argues that it is the same time everywhere.
In the exhibition Exponential Extensions Harm Coordes, Bruno Christofoletti Barrenha, and Marie Siekmann explore the boundaries between physical and digital, speed and stagnation, yesterday and tomorrow. This exhibition also seeks to challenge traditional notions of space by producing a temporary center – a spacelessness – where multiple expressions can coexist in a single moment. Through a combination of visual and sound art, text, accumulation and appropriation of everyday objects, the artists will explore themes of authenticity, identity, memory, and the human experience in the form of a multimedia installation.
Opening at Circa 106 on 22.2. at 18h visiting hours 23-26.2. 15-19h
Circa 106, Bismarckstraße 106, 28203 Bremen
Marie Siekmann is a Fashion- and Costume Designer currently based in Bremen, Germany. She creates abstract design systems to build her collections. The search and valuation of unused clothes and recontextualized materials is essential in her work.
