Presentation of the KHM award for artists in matjö.
The exhibition “bridge” provides an insight into the collections of (extra)terrestrial research in recent years. In her observations of landscapes and mission simulations Nieves de la Fuente Gutiérrez shows materials and testimonies from the preoccupation with past and future places, landscapes characterized by transformative-terrestrial actions, rediscovered as memories in their own imagery.
In a dialogue with Karin Lingnau, Nieves de la Fuente Gutiérrez constructs the image of a research station as a display of different formats of fictional and factual entanglements. It presents textures and artifacts, collected and considered again, extracted from the original habitat, re-set, in booklet, text, image, sound.
