Working Drawings and Other Visible Things on Paper Not Necessarily Meant To Be Viewed as Art / Artworks We Like That Fitted In Our Suitcases

Gallery

Conceptual Art Centre Bukovje/Landskrona (SE) is a non-profit exhibition project run by artists Nina Slejko Blom and Conny Blom. Working with zero budget, CAC is trying to make relevant exhibitions in the periphery of the art world, questioning the established hierarchies within the contemporary art system. They started out in a mountain village in Slovenia, but are currently based in Landskrona, a small Swedish city. Besides young up-and- coming artists, the centre regularly exhibits fantastic works by renowned contemporary artists such as Martin Creed, John Baldessari, Jeremy Deller, and more. CAC is bringing two exhibitions to Võru, inspired by Mel Bochner, who faced with economic shortage in 1966 resorted to using cheap materials and ended up making one of the canonical exhibitions of the 20th century. Bringing art in their suitcases, stuffing it into phones and folders and buying it in local candy stores, CAC is recreating, re-contextualizing and slightly altering Bochner’s Working Drawings and Other Visible Things on Paper Not Necessarily Meant To Be Viewed as Art and making their own Small Good Things (Artworks We Like That Fitted In Our Suitcases).
