Marte Kiessling (Berlin)

  • November 4, 2014 – November 28, 2014

Marte Kiessling has been building a hand-drawn archive of everything she owns since 2012. With the working title Archive: Lost and Found – All My Things, this body of work is re-modified constantly, and forms the base for a series of videos and installations. Kiessling will be illustrating her talk with images from her practice, and artist-archives that have influenced and inspired it, conceptually and formally. While in Winnipeg, she will be researching systems of archives and their various presentations. She will be in residence at MAWA November 4-28, 2014.
