The Kasseler Kunstverein is showing the first joint exhibition by Maja Wirkus and Eric Pries. The installations and collages especially created for Kassel reflect their previous work and exhibition practice as well as their means of questioning spaces as bearers of memories. Photography – and its peripherals – always acts as the starting point.

"We look for pictorial structures, specific conditions of materials and text layers that allow us to investigate the reciprocity and interdependence of different experiential spaces." ARBUZ is one such space in which Wirkus & Pries artistic approach leans towards architecture.

Concrete, as a collage, traces paths, roads, technical models and the open spaces in them. A wall gives space while taking up space. A multimedia installation between image, text and object renders the processes of their artistic research visible.

"ARBUZ is a telling of spaces between fragments, inside discontinuities and near abandonment. For our artistic exploration these spaces are productive places. We look for narratives, not empty phrases."

In this sense, ARBUZ will change over time: photographs and objects will be added, removed, repositioned and the exhibition architecture modified.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Cultural Office of Kassel, Dr. Wolfgang Zippel Foundation, the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art and the Foundation Kunstfonds.
