||Thursday October 7 until Sunday October 10 2010.|
Daily from 12 to 7 pm.
JOHAN STRANDAHL & AIDS-3D (DANIEL KELLER & NIK KOSMAS)
Please visit us at art forum berlin - sector focus, hall 20, booth 160a.
Established in 2006, Gallery Niklas Belenius is a young contemporary art gallery based in Stockholm.
From the onset the key objective has been to form an intergenerational program supporting emerging as well as more established artists of all media. Though the work is diverse in presentation the artists are linked by a commitment to continuously reassess the position of artistic practices within their wider cultural, social and political frameworks. The programme includes solo and thematic exhibitions and the space also invites guest-curated projects. Over the last four years the gallery has developed into a vibrant location for performances and exhibitions in different forms.
At art forum berlin our proposed concept is to showcase the american artist duo aids-3d and the Swedish artist Johan Strandahl along side each other and toinvestigate their different contributions to the discourse that challenges our views of modern technology. In their art works, Aids-3d often draw upon the history of the ready-made, utilizing ready-made objects that with the help of high-tech computer engineering become tools in advancing crucial humanitarian research.
Johan Strandahl´s art investigates and proposes a questioning of the creation process and originality of manufactured objects, and ultimately how modern technology and the restrictions it imposes upon us can also set us free. At art forum Berlin we are planning to introduce new art works by aids-3d and Johan Strandahl and to include both sculptures and drawings.
