5-7th June 2023
Arena Berlin & Festsaal Kreuzberg
This session accompanies the Off Stage art installations 'Salty Glitches' and 'Shapes of Destruction' by providing insights into the development of the two works. The practices and projects of the two artists go in different directions. Till Rückwart creates photographs of glitches he finds in satellite imagery of salt deserts and lithium mines. Andrea Garcia Vasquez translates shapes of deforested areas in the Amazon Rainforest into tufted rugs and sculptures. Both artists, although working on different subject matter, are contemplating intertwining questions regarding narratives and poetics found within digital representations of destroyed landscape, mapping software, and aesthetics.
