Organizing HD_Treasure together with Adam Grinovich, Florian Milker and Julia Walters. Taking plalace during MJW 2017.

‘HD-Treasure’ is an offshoot exhibition formed from the Zimmerhof Schmucksymposium 2016 that shares the same title. The show combines an exploration into contemporary aesthetics with a classic theme of the secret and precious. We enter this theme through the perspective of remix culture, the agreement that everything has been done. But we are not satisfied with this assumption. ‘HD’ is a term present in everyday life from our smartphones, advertisements to fine art installations and videos. HD: the new dominant aesthetic in contemporary life.

HD TREASURE assembles a group of artists both working for and against this new paradigm, attempting to see the TREASURE through the lens of a means of expression still yet to be fully defined

Oranized Zimmerhof smuck symposium 2016 together with Florian Milker and Adam Grinovich. 

The theme for the symposium was HD-treasure. or High definition treasure. The theme for Zimmerhof 2016 “HD (or High Definition) TREASURE” combines an exploration into contemporary aesthetics with a classic theme of the secret and precious. We enter this theme through the perspective of remix culture, the agreement that everything has been done. But we are not satisfied with this assumption. We strive to discover the unique in emerging forms of expression.

“HD” a new  term, a term present in everyday life from the smartphones that we keep in our pockets, to the advertisements we see on public transportation, as well as in fine art installations and videos.  HD: the new dominant aesthetic in contemporary life. HD TREASURE assembles a group of artists both working for and against this new paradigm, attempting to see the TREASURE through the lens of a means of expression still yet to be fully defined.

Exhibition at Platina, 11 th of march to 30 th of April together with Adam Grinovich

"Strålkastare" is a concept developed by Annika Pettersson and Adam Grinovich that expresses a fascination in the spectacle of light. It ties the two artists work together by presenting two distinct expressions underneath a series of engineered lighting scenarios. Inspiration was drawn from the transformative power of light, how, for example, a nightclub or concert can express power and energy with the simple act of manipulating light and focus. "Strålkastare" consumes the viewer entirely, demanding a full attention to the dynamic expression of light on objects that reveal themselves underneath patterns and sequences of programmed luminescence. The exhibition, in essence, embodies its title and English translation, to throw brilliance and serves to illustrate the sublime elements of each artists work.
