‘Built like a memory’

3. – 19. november
ÅPNING: Fredag 3. november kl 19

I oktober har gallerirommene og verkstedet til Tag Team fungert som studioplass for Bianca Bondi, Adam Cruces og Laurie Kang. De tre kunstnerne ble valgt ut gjennom det nettbaserte kurator-verktøyet Curatron, til å delta i residensprogrammet driftet av Bergens nye studiofelleskap Aldea (tidligere Flaggfabrikken).

Under oppholdet har de tre kunstnerne bodd sammen på Christinegaard Hovedgaard i Sandviken. I løpet av den knappe måneden før utstillingen, har de lært å kjenne både Bergen og hverandre. I studio har de eksperimentert med ulike teknikker og konstruksjonsformer, med utgangspunkt i hvilke verktøy og materialer som har vært tilgjengelige for dem. Resultatet er ‘Built like a memory’, en gruppeutstilling produsert i sin helhet på Tag Team Studio.


‘Built like a memory’

3. – 19. November
OPENING: Friday November 3., 7pm

Throughout October, Tag Team’s gallery space and workshop has been functioning as studio space for Bianca Bondi, Adam Cruces and Laurie Kang. The three artists were chosen through the online software tool Curatron, to participate in the residency-program run by Bergen’s new studiocollective Aldea (formerly Flaggfabrikken).

During their stay, the three artists have lived together at the Christinegaard Mansion in Sandviken. In the short month leading up to the exhibition, they have learned to know both Bergen and each other. At the studio they have experimented with different techniques, based on the tools and materials that have been available to them. The result is ‘Built like a memory’, a group exhibition made in its entirety at Tag Team Studio.
