on Saturday June 16. at 7-11 PM
Exhibition period; June 17.
- July 31., daily 4-12 PM
The video installation is viewed
through the window, from the street.
Lisa Strömbeck installs
a remake of her "Resting place", especially to be viewed
from the street outside Sparwasser HQ, during the summer of 2001.
Originally "Resting place" was made as a shed in a
larger room, where you were invited to lie down on a mattress,
and have a rest together with sleeping animals.
This summer you can pass by outside Sparwasser HQ, and be reminded
of the fact, that besides all those things you always have to
do... just once in a while take your time to do nothing but rest!
In the gallery, three dogs and one cat are shown sleeping, one
on each video monitor.
These animals are of that strange kind called pets. A kind of
animal that people buy, and raise to fit into society. Beings
that belong some place between nature and culture.
The Swedish artist Lisa
Strömbeck has already been introduced to the Berlin
art scene with an artist talk in SW in summer 2000 + participation
in the group show "We want to believe".
She was a guest student in 99 at the Babelsberg Film School and
her work was also seen at the Berliner Art Forum in both 1999
and 2000 at the booth of gallery Tommy Lund.
