Schloss Ringenberg / I write you from a faraway country / Eva Olthof (DAI, 2011) & Stefano Faoro with Miek Zwamborn
Two presentations and a book
June 30th , 7 pm at Schloss Ringenberg, Schlosstrasse 8, Hamminkeln
In December 2011, we, Eva Olthof and Stefano Faoro worked together on an exhibition in a small artist-run space in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The exhibition was called At the end of the world I exist and consisted of two diverse installations. The work on display was mirroring an ongoing discourse about traveling, distance and the transportive potentialities of the image starting from each our interests – respectively photography and architecture.
Now, six months later, we organize an event at Schloss Ringenberg, Germany. During the night the work will take the form of two presentations and a book, in order to broaden the performative side of the installation presented before and to transport the previous space into the new room, the Rittersaal.
The presentations and the book touch, amongst other things, upon a postcard from Tenerife and the portrait of Emily Dickinson, respectively the features of the two specific exhibition spaces and the furniture that inhabits them. Artist and writer Miek Swamborn was invited to write a contribution to the book as a third link. The sentence At the end of the world I exist was used as a point of departure point for a short story titled Legacies of the moon.
Eva Olthof is an alumnus of the DAI , Stefano Faoro studied at the Werkplaats Typografie, they started collaborating while working on a DAI -publication in 2011.
