Marcellvs L. at Astrup Fearnley Museet (09/09/2013)
'Imagine Brazil' is the fourth exhibition in the series focusing on a country's art scene. The Brazilian art history is well documented, especially the Brazilian modernism, such as Concrete, Neoconcrete and Tropicália movement, which developed independently but also in deep dialogue with modernist tendencies in Europe and North America. Artists such as Oscar Niemeyer, Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Pape and Ernesto Neto, are all part of the international modernist and artistic heritage and are all internationally recognized. In parallel with this great modernist tradition is also an explicit Brazilian conceptual art that was less dogmatic and structuralist than their counterparts in Europe and North America, but more open, more poetic, more politically engaged, as we can see in the works of Cildo Meireles and Vik Muniz.
With 'Imagine Brazil' the curators wants to showcase a diverse picture of what is happening in Brazilian contemporary art. 14 young artists are selected for what they perceive as important representatives of the emerging art scene in Brazil, but also in terms of their international significance. In addition to showcase the young artists the exhibition wishes to put their artistic expression in a historical context. Therefore, each of them was asked to choose an older artist, which they consider important for Brazilian contemporary art, to accompany them in the exhibition.
Dates: 11 October 2013 – 02 March 2014 Opening: 10 October 2013
The Sprengel Museum Hannover, the kestnergesellschaft and the Kunstverein Hannover together present an overview exhibition of the international, contemporary art scene in Germany under the title "Made in Germany Zwei".
The exhibition presents from 17 May to 19 August 2012 about 40 pathbreaking positions of a younger generation of international artists, who live and work in Germany. With this exhibition the three institutions of Hannover continue the successful show "Made in Germany" from the year 2007.
For "Made in Germany Zwei" the idea of "Made in Germany" was advanced by a team of curators of all three institutions: The exhibiton will be curated by all of the three institutions. Many of the artists developped new workings especially for "Made in Germany Zwei".

Over the course of one year, the IBB video lounge will present 12 artists who have drawn attention to themselves with innovative use of the media film and video in recent years. Documentary approaches will appear alongside strategies which reflect on and question the medium itself. Visual aesthetic experiments are also crucial to the works of those artists invited to participate.

The title of Marcellvs L.’s video installation consists of the geographical coordinates of the place where the images emerged. Five parallel screens show five views of corridors that are intersected by passageways. The cameras point in the same direction, but from five different fixed positions, show the corridors’ own axial symmetry. The views are disrupted at random intervals by people crossing and wandering through the corridors, shifting in scale because of the different camera’s positions. This activity does not follow any recognizable rhythm or pattern. The view of the place becomes an irritating abstraction, as suggested by the work’s title. The geographical data are just as precise as they are abstract, while the symmetry of the place restricts human movement to two dimensions: the people cross the camera’s field horizontally or they move about in the depths of the space. The formal consistency of the presentation is further broken on two temporal levels: the videos were recorded over a six months period, yet at different intervals. Furthermore, the different lengths of each video, from 8 to 40 min, result in overlapping within their duration.
In his work, Marcellvs L. creates a place that appears to exist solely in the present, but which cannot be situated in reality.
