Berlin – Edinburgh Exchange
This October and November Edinburgh and Berlin based artists will be exchanging locations, swapping their familiar surroundings for exhibiting, networking and production opportunities in new environments.
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop will welcome three artists from the gallery HilbertRaum for a three week residency and exhibition whilst four members of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop will travel to Berlin to exhibit their work
The exhibition Nova Scotia presents the work of four Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop artists to Berlin audiences. Jessica Harrison, Bernie Reid and Yokollection (Francesca Nobilucci & Alexa Hare) adopt the imagery, materials and methodologies of ceramics, fashion, textiles and design to produce work that simultaneously pays homage to and undermines these disciplines historical basis. Rigourously crafted these objects bridge the gap between functionality and aesthetics, interrogating the hierarchical relationships between fine art, craft and the decorative arts.
With Neukölln Exports, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop hosts three artists from Berlin – Lena von Goedeke (DE), Andy Holtin (USA), and Tobias Sternberg (SE) – for a series of workshops, presentations, and a showcase of their work. Though approaching from very distinct practices, these artists find overlap in a connection to object and material that defines a strong sense of the physical world. All three are members of Hilbert Raum, an independent and artist-run space located in the art-vibrant neighborhood Neukölln.
HilberRaum is an independent, non-commercial, artist-run project space. It opened in January 2015 in the middle of Reuterkiez in Berlin-Neukölln. Behind Hilbert space is a group of 16 Berlin-based artists, who take turns curating and organizing two-week exhibitions Throughout The Entire year. Projects incorporate a broad range of painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and performance. Hilbert space is named after the infinitely dimensioned Hilbert space, a concept developed by the mathematician David Hilbert. To us, it darstellt an open, undetermined and evolving structure of self-organization with the expectation of the unexpected. Hilbert space is an independent, non-profit, driven by artists project space. It opened in January 2015 in the midst of Reuter Kiez in Berlin-Neukölln.About every two weeks is distributed the year opened a new exhibition, alternating the 16 artists in their curatorial direction.
