Suggested Value at Künstlerhaus Bremen

Pilvi Takala
Suggested Value
Opening: Fri 1 June 2012, 6:00 p.m.
2 June - 26 August 2012

There are rules regulating how we live together. And just what happens when someone ignores the conventions tacitly laid down by society can be seen in the works of the Finnish artist Pilvi Takala. She herself is usually the main protagonist in performances which she films with a concealed camera and which form the basis for video, photography and installation works and for publications. In these works, the artist approaches and penetrates closed systems, links into existing orders so as to crack their codes. Her preferred sphere of action therefore is public or semi-public space, for example, a shopping centre, the European Parliament or a leisure park. Suggested Value consists of five works which all rotate around issues to do with the value of objects, their genesis, peculiarity and measurability. Pilvi Takala explores the mechanisms inherent in the genesis of value by evaluating the commercial value of a book, examining the importance of intellectual work, or experimenting with cash.

TRACK opens in Ghent

Curators: Philippe Van Cauteren and Mirjam Varadinis
Organised by: S.M.A.K., the Museum of Contemporary Art in Ghent
Supported by: City of Ghent, Flemish Community, National Lottery and Port of Ghent
TRACK is a temporary exhibition in the public and semi-public space of the city of Ghent. Philippe Van Cauteren and Mirjam Varadinis invited 35 artists to make an in-depth exploration of six typical neighbourhoods in Ghent and to come up with artistic proposals that interact with the different communities in various ways. The curators took the time to select surprising, meaningful and hidden locations in the wider city centre of Ghent and invited artists who have an affinity with the thematic context of the various places. The selected artists use the local reality as a fertile source of inspiration to reflect upon the city and the contemporary human condition in a global light. The results of their explorations are not simply traditional works of art, but artistic projects with an intense relationship with the city and its inhabitants that will leave permanent traces.
