An Exhibition with works by Anna Zaradny & Robert Piotrowicz (PL), Graw Böckler (DE), Wojciech Kosma (PL), Rodrigo Derteano (PE/DE), Wojtek Kucharczyk (PL) and Niklas Roy (DE) within the framework of the festival CTM.08 - UNPREDICTABLE.
Four artists resident in Germany and four Polish artists were invited to take up the challenge of forming bi-national duos to produce collaborative audio-visual projects for an exhibition at CTM.08. The artists involved had never previously worked with one another. During a 1-week workshop at the recent Unsound Festival in Krakow (in November 2007) they had the opportunity to develop joint approaches and projects. Work begun in Krakow will be continued throughout January, until the opening of the exhibition. What can be expected is that it will take not only the public by surprise but also the artists themselves.
The goal of integrating the coincidental and unforeseeable is a paradoxical artistic means of altering the dynamics of creative situations and treading new paths in artistic processes. To partially relinquish control in order to emphasise the role of contingency and open systems is an attempt to transcend one´s own and other people´s horizons. The exhibition, Unpredictable Encounters is based on the idea that coincidental occurrences can foster fruitful encounters between (sound-) artists.
The exhibition is curated by Oliver Baurhenn and Kuba Szreder.
This project is a cooperation between Unsound, Pauza Foundation and CMT and Disk e.V. with the friendly support of the Foundation for German - Polish Cooperation, Polish Institute Berlin, Goethe Institut Krakau and with a special thank you to satis&fy AG Germany.
