Zorka Wollny

The works of Zorka Wollny inhabit a space between art, theatre and contemporary music and are closely connected to the historic and functional context of specific architectural sites. Wollny understands architecture not simply as a material figuration, but rather as a cognitive space dependent on movement, an expression of cultural conditions and a scene of performative interventions. Following a critical interest in cultural codes, gestures and structural modes of behavior, which she observes e.g. in art production and reception and in environments of post-industrial work, she develops choreographic live-performances and concerts. The production of Wollny’s projects is based on a collaborative procedure and is often accompanied by public rehearsals and workshops.

Zorka Wollny (born 1980, Kraków, Poland) lives and works in Berlin. Her works have been shown in several contemporary art institutions in Poland, and she has participated in international exhibitions at Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, 2014; Academy of Arts, Berlin, 2013; Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig, 2012; Abteiberg Museum, Mönchengladbach, Germany, 2012; Turner Contemporary, Margate, 2011; Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, 2011; Carrara International Sculpture Biennale, 2010; Z33, Hasselt, 2010; Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich, 2009; and Royal College of Art, London, 2009. Wollny is a lecturer at Szczecin Art Academy.

Pia Rönicke

In recent years, Pia Rönicke has been investigating different botanical collections. Her interest in herbariums stands in relationship to methods of indexing, including both observation and representation. These plant collections show traces of geopolitical conditions not only within the practices of botany but also map out territorialization. Rönicke attempts to examine the consequences of botanical systemization. She has been researching the perspectives of various female activists, architects, and artists that takes its stance from what she calls the ‘blind spot.’ She is interested in the connection between workspace and filmic space, and how we conceive historical matters in relationship to our daily activities. Rönicke often works with archives of letters, notes, images, newspapers, microfilm and online databases, and the theme of collecting is often recurring in her practice. She works with film, prints, sculptures and objects, which together build larger narratives.

Pia Rönicke is an artist based in Copenhagen. Her work has been the subject of numerous international solo exhibitions including; Overgaden Institute of Contemporary art; Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; gb agency, Paris; Montehermoso, Vitoria-Gasteiz; Casco, Utrecth; Croy Nielsen, Berlin; Lunds Konsthall, Sweden; Tate Modern, London; Display Gallery, Prague; Trafo Gallery, Budapest; MAK, Los Angeles; Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
