Stoneroses @ Minibar, Jul 23 + 24

20 July 2016

Mirak Jamal and Santiago Taccetti are presenting a fourth iteration of the Stoneroses group exhibition at Stockholm’s Minibar on July 23 and 24.

The duo present works by Gianluca Concialdi, Chelsea Culprit, Candice JacobsLaurie KangIvan KrassoievitchErika LandströmAdrien Missika, George Rippon, and Gabriel Säll. Using public off-site locations —including Berlin’s Grunewald in 2014 reviewed here by aqnb —as a space for their works, two guided tours of the exhibition are being offered starting at Vårberg Station, each lasting about two hours.

The location of the works is described as an area “scouted for its features of equal parts composited and of un-composited concrete” with various nooks to be inhabited by “leaking materials”. The area sits nearby the highest natural point in Stockholm, “an artificial high built from the excavation spoils of the Stockholm Metro”.

A series of posters will line the walls of Minibar as placeholders with the intention of eventually being filled with remnants from the guided tour. Though the gallery “encapsulates a set of norms”, for this event it will attempt to find a sense of balance by adopting the outdoors as an exhibition space and emphasizing the gestures it implies. The gallery becomes “a placeholder for a map indicating gestures being activated at a different location”.

See the FB event page for more details.**
