From the press release:
… Myriam Thyes also combines imagery stemming from different contexts in her work. For her video projection After Tiepolo (2013), she had filmed the fresco by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo in the Würzburg Residence. In this colourful video collage, the fresco is joined by planets and architecture. Her photo series Magnify Malta (2010) explore the socio-political tensions and show the cruise ships docked in Valetta next to a refugee camp in Hal Far.
The exhibition is co-funded by the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Schwerin, the Sparkasse Foundation of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, the Swiss cultural foundation Pro Helvetia as well as the brands Caspar, Rasch, Eschke and Zuther + Hautmann.
Exhibition opening: July 11th 2014, 7pm. Speaker: Anne-Kathrin Auel.
