Experimental Experience Experiment
( ) Parenthesis Space Parenthesis A.I.R. – Berlin

( ) Parenthesis Space Parenthesis is a nomadic artist-in-residency program and a close group of participating artists who meet once a year to build up an exhibition, usually without any previous idea, finding their way through the endemic materials and improvisation.

During the past projects the process for each residency was a very dynamic exchange of creative energy which led to certain experiences on the way with less focus on the final outcome in the sense of a conventional exhibition.
Therefore, for the third edition of the ( ) A.I.R., we shifted the focus: based on knowing each other quite well, we will now even develop a deeper connection during the flow of working together. All participating artists will, during the building up phase, analyze, remark and portrait the personality shape -and also self-portrait- of each remanding participating artist, documenting this approach in various available media. In the end everyone will collaborate, layer by layer, in a collective mind-map of each persona creating big collages of information and perception.

The project was host by Hilbert Raum Berlin
