Contemporary meets Rococo
GENIUS LOCI - About the (good) spirit of the space.
On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the DROSTEI, a non-profit culture center and arts foundation in Pinneberg, the greater area of Hamburg, the art historian and curator Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund has been invited to curate a group show and select Danish artists from the fields of fine arts and design.
The curated project titled "GENIUS LOCI - The (good) Spirit of the Space" presents works from the artists' studios as well as space-related artistic projects.
How does a space or local area influence the creativity and creative identity?
How interactive are spirit & space connected?
Where is the home of the (good) spirit, the GENIUS LOCI?
In ancient mythology, the GENIUS LOCI was the saint patron of a place or a temple that causes a positive (or negative?) effect on people and the surroundings. But where can the GENIUS LOCI be found today, in times of globalization - whether in virtual, real, collective spaces, in the public, urban or natural space?
