From the press release:
For her newly created installation Chambre bleu (2014) Patricia Lambertus used photographs she took at the castle of Schwerin. She filled this historic setting with images that have either been self-produced or found in the media. These have now been turned into visually stunning photo wallpaper and exclusive tapestries that allow images of war to permeate the installation space. 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.
