Artists at Work: Marius Ritiu and Marta Fišerová Cwiklinski
Marius Ritiu will be in conversation with Kathleen Forde, Artistic Director of Borusan Contemporary in Istanbul, about his recent work which focuses on cosmology, the scale of the universe and the alchemical transformation of everyday objects.
Marta Fišerová Cwiklinski will present her past projects as well as a new project in progress titled The Fourth Greenhouse. Her work highlights the intersection of personal stories, history, the passage of time, and finally their reconstruction by way of storytelling. The Fourth Greenhouse focuses on the enclosure of natural and manmade forms to create an artificial paradise.
