Press Release, April 2019

f.eks. warmly invites you to the event-based art project From Industry City to Leisure City by Luiza Crosman and Pedro Moraes. The project marks the first exhibition of f.eks.’ two-year program, and will consist of three different public events. Their project is a research-based reflection on the waterfront city of Aalborg that takes the changing constellation of forces driving urbanization processes as a starting point for understanding the contemporary city through an artistic lens.

The artists will seek to explore utopian possibilities (along with a broader public) while asking the questions – is it possible to envision a future where technology helps people construct the cities they want to live in instead of bringing dystopian scenarios? How can the city be open to the commons and inspire creative co-production? Can contemporary art become a political entity that leverages collective forces into strategy and organization? In order to enact changes, the artists suggest partaking in a dynamic exercise of imagination that takes into account gentrification and finalization of urban spaces toward rethinking the city through artistic engagement. These interactions will be documented and compiled into a hybrid publication prototype that the artists will present at the project’s conclusion.

Luiza Crosman (b. 1987, Rio de Janeiro) and Pedro Moraes (b. 1985, Rio de Janeiro) currently live and work in São Paulo, Brazil. Their artistic practices seek to use art, design, technology, and organizational strategies to react to the changing relationships between economic systems, cities, visual culture, and broader society. Luiza Crosman is currently partaking in the Sommerakademie Paul Klee in Bern, she finished her Post-Master in Advanced Performance and Scenography in Brussels in 2017, and graduated from UERJ, Rio de Janeiro in 2014. She has exhibited and developed projects at 33rd São Paulo Biennial, ISELP, Brussels, and the KW Institute in Berlin. Pedro Moraes took part in The New Normal program with the Strelka Institute in 2018, finished the Gent-based residency program at the HISK in 2016, and received an MFA from Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam in 2014. He has also exhibited at Kunsthalle Wien, CAC in Vilnius, Homesession in Barcelona, Objectif in Antwerp, among many others.

f.eks. is a roaming, non-profit, artist-run platform that makes contemporary art events in a changing constellation of spaces and contexts in the city of Aalborg. At these sites, f.eks. invites artists to make temporary pop-up events including discussions, performances, readings, screenings, participatory installations, and other forms of temporary engagements. f.eks. seeks to create social, critical, and experimental art projects by inviting artists that have collective, collaborative, research and cooperative practices to engage with wider audiences during their micro exhibition periods. This is part of a broader aim to experiment with sustainable models of artistic organization, via novel presentation formats, while generating new publics along the way.

f.eks. is kindly sponsored by the Danish Arts Foundation, Aalborg Municipality, and Aalborg Arts Foundation. The project is supported by Nordkraft and Himmerland Boligforening.

Thursday, 2nd May:
Project Introduction - Artist Talk / Discussion from 4-7 pm.

Pressemeddelelse, april 2019

f.eks. inviterer til From Industry City to Leisure City af Luiza Crosman og Pedro Moraes. Projektet består af tre offentlige arrangementer, og markerer starten på f.eks.’ to årige udstillingsprogram. Projektet er en research baseret refleksion over Aalborg, med udgangspunkt i de forskelligartede processer, der driver urbanisering ved at undersøge byen gennem en kunstnerisk linse.

Kunstnerne vil gennem projektet udforske utopiske muligheder (for en bredere offentlighed) ved at stille spørgsmål som fx; – er det muligt at forestille sig en fremtid, uden om et dystopisk scenario, hvor teknologi hjælper folk med at konstruere byer som de selv ønsker at leve i? Hvordan kan man åbne op for fællesskab og inspirere til samproduktion? Kan samtidskunst skabe en kollektiv politisk bevidsthed, der konstituerer sig som strategi og organisering?

For at starte dialogen, opfordrer kunstnerne til en dynamisk leg med fantasien, gennem en kunstnerisk intervention, hvor byfornyelse og det urbane rum genovervejes. Disse interaktioner vil blive dokumenteret og publiceret som en hybrid prototype, der præsenteres ved projektets konklusion.

Luiza Crosman (f. 1987, Rio de Janeiro) og Pedro Moraes (f. 1985, Rio de Janeiro). Begge kunstnere bor og arbejder i São Paulo, Brasilien. I deres kunstneriske praksis arbejder Crosman og Moraes med at anvende kunst, design, teknologi og organisationsstrategier til at gentænke økonomiske, miljømæssige og kulturelle systemer i forhold til det bredere samfund. Luiza Crosman tog afgang fra UERJ i Rio de Janeiro i 2014, og færdiggjorde sin Postmaster i Advanced Performance and Scenography i Bruxelles, Belgien i 2017, hun deltager lige nu i Sommerakademie Paul Klee i Bern. Hun har udstillet og lavet projekter til 33a São Paulo Biennial, ISELP i Bruxelles og KW Institute i Berlin. Pedro Moraes har været en del af The New Normal på Strelka Institute i 2018 og HISK i 2016. Han fik sin MFA fra Sandberg Instituut i Amsterdam i 2014, han har bla. udstillet hos Kunsthalle Wien, CAC i Vilnius, Homesession i Barcelona og Objectif i Antwerp.

f.eks. er en nomadisk non-profit kunstnerdrevet platform, som tilrettelægger projekter med stedsspecifik samtidskunst på forskellige lokationer i Aalborg. På de skiftende steder i byen inviteres kunstnere til at lave sociale installationer, pop-up events, workshops, foredrag og andre former for relationel kunst. f.eks. søger at skabe kritiske og eksperimentelle kunstprojekter, og inddrager derfor kunstnere med praksisser, der arbejder med kollektivitet, samarbejds- og research baserede projekter. Målet med platformen er at skabe en bæredygtige model for kunstnerisk organisering gennem nye præsentationsformater, der på sigt kan være med til at introducere et nyt publikum for samtidskunsten.

f.eks. sponsoreres venligst af Statens Kunstfond, Aalborg Kommune og Aalborg Kommunes Kunstfond. Projektet er støttet af Nordkraft Event og Himmerland Boligforening.
