Past Understandings at KHM and Desire Ruin at NHM

December 12, 2014 – January 11, 2015

Time is a central issue in the works by the Icelandic artist Bjarki Bragason (born 1983), examining it through the aspects of political history, architecture, language and archeology.

In the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Bjarki Bragason is presenting his new work Past Understandings. In a series of video works und sculptural interventions the artist questions the construction and reading of historical narrative while dealing with the history of the museum.

In the Mineral Collection at the Naturhistorisches Museum Bjarki Bragason is showing a new adaption of the video sculpture Desire Ruin realized in 2013. Desire Ruin draws on the dilemma of studying a phenomenon and the alteration, which a study has on the subject studied. The work deals with issues of time, history and the desire to internalize the subject of time.
