Kunstverein Freiburg, English Version


Violet Dennison
Chapter Four: Disappointment
8 June – 21 July 2019


Violet Dennison deals with the dynamism and fragility of complex technological and biological systems. Her installations refer to ecosystems and infrastructures that permeate and shape our lived environments in ways that often go unnoticed. Kunstverein Freiburg will display Dennison’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. In these artworks – created especially for the exhibition – the artist works with coding techniques, as well as methods of information storage and transfer. She continues her sculptural examination of incomprehensible systems and their material manifestations, hacking technologies, combining high-tech with the occult. In a world increasingly determined by digital megastructures, in which biospheres and infospheres merge into one another, Dennison investigates possibilities of self-expression, as well as communication and interaction with such systems.
