Tiril Hasselknippe @ Kunstverein Braunschweig, Dec 3 – Feb 12

, 2 December 2016

Tiril Hasselknippe is presenting solo exhibition Station at Kunstverein Braunschweig, opening December 3 and running to February 12.

The exhibition is based on a research trip in North America’s Mojave Desert, where the Norwegian artist deals with “the post apocalyptical vision of a survival station amidst a wayless desert landscape.” Hasselknippe’s site-specific installation includes three separate though connected sculptures, coated and layered with concrete, a fire pit on a wooden structure and a newly developed film projection. Together they examine ideas of interior space through its juxtaposition with the vast expanse and the solitude of the desert:

“This way the artist creates a place of retreat, which concisely captures in a nutshell the popular drop-out fantasies of a “Generation Angst” and other existing protectionist tendencies in societies.”
