POWER GAMES: Peter Fend & Morten Traavik
On June 1, 2012, our not-for-profit arts venue will be renamed NOoSPHERE (pronounced “know-oh-sphere”) to reflect our expanding geographic scope.* On this occasion, we are proud to present our first truly transnational exhibit. Curated by Russian-born Yulia Tikhonova, POWER GAMES is a staged dialogue between two artists who share a willingness to challenge boundaries and to face the consequences this brings.
The two artists share a belief in ‘truth disclosure’ projects conducted to challenge their own and others’ comfort zones. In this pursuit,they both play many roles: activist, pundit, craftsman, conceptualist, realist, fantasist, bad‐boy artiste ‒ sometimes all at once!
