Berlin! 12–15.12.2019 “Take Place”, 210 artists in a white cube

The exhibition invites 210 Berlin-based artists to come into an empty gallery space and their presence becomes part of the work. It aims to go beyond the usual bound thatseparates the artist and the performer from the public, and invite the public to participate inthe artist’s experience and to the artist’s point of view. Project director is Ming Lu.

As a response to Institut für Alles Mögliche, Take Place Ⅰ fills the 20 square meter galleryspace with artists. Presented through the window wall towards the street, the workconsists of live encounters between people, while the material is the artists or the artists’presence. During the opening hours, street passengers and visitors are welcome to comeinto the gallery. Once they enter the gallery, the audiences become parts of the work. Withartists standing, sitting and chatting in the space, the work erases the difference betweenthe artists and visitors, and questions the general expectations towards an exhibition. Itexists as a performance, an interaction, and an immaterial experience.

In Take Place ⅠⅠ, a group of artists sit on three rows of stadium seats inside the gallery facing the window, and stare at the street through the entire opening hours. Rather than being observed, the work is observing whatever is happening outside the gallery andcreating an unfamiliar situation for both the artists and the viewers. And the work itself is held in the moments of these encounters. Through these encounters, the work challengesthe viewers’ as well as the artists’ roles and participations in a work and in an exhibition,blurring the lines between the making, presenting, and experiencing of an art piece.
