An exhibition of public artworks, installations, meals, performances, urban interventions, and events outdoors in Hyllie, Malmo, from 1 July to 27 August 2017
Martinka Bobrikova & Oscar de Carmen have been working together as an artistic duo since 2005. Central to their artistic practices are the notions of an open interaction within the art world beyond the confines of what is often considered acceptable artistic institutions. They view their artwork as embedded within lived experience, as a single space of coexistence and confluence. They believe that this open dialogue between art and life is a productive context to emphasize the current interchange and flux in social life and to promote social transformation. Through this methodology, the artists critically investigate our roots and social habits, questioning the mechanisms and contexts which create thes powerful current systems of values. They have participated in several residencies such as Seoul Art Space_Geumcheon, HomeBase Saitama, KulturKontakt Austria, Nida art Colony or MeetFactory. Their works have been presented in venues such as the Saitama Triennial, Nitra Gallery, Akershus Kunstnersenter, Tranzit.sk (2016); the 2nd Tbilisi Triennial, Prague Quadrennial, Babel Art Space, Entrance Gallery (2015); Centre Contemporary Art in Singapore, Høstutstillingen, Kunstnerneshus, ANX/ Atelier Nord, Skånes Konstforening, City Gallery Bratislava (2014); Karlin studio, Rake (2013); Museum of Contemporary Art Roskilde, KURANT, (2012); Singuhr (2011); Center of Contemporary Art – Tbilisi, Röda Sten, City Museum of Gothenburg, Space gallery, Bratislava (2010).
