Display was founded in 2015 as a junction point between artistic and curatorial practices; understood as a transitory space, where creation, presentation, representation and questioning contemporary practices could be done simultaneously. Display embodies a (meta)physical and discursive transmission.
Connection line between inside & outside, seen & unseen, the vitrine is a display. By extension, the exhibition room is a display. Artists are invited to invest the showcase/space and collaborate with the team for a site-specific installation with a focus on transformations and processes. We aim here to give attention to experimenting curation, exhibition design and devices. We are engaged in questioning image systems, investigating the positions, movements and relationships of the different actors and bodies in the space. Display is a space for experimental artistic and curatorial practices.
It is run by Marie DuPasquier and was founded together with Paul Polaris. Display has been awarded with the Auszeichnung Künstlerische Projekträume - Initiativen 2018 - Prize of the City of Berlin - Senat Kultur & Europa
Marie DuPasquier (*1984, Lausanne) is a Swiss independent curator and museologist, living between Zürich and Berlin. She graduated with an MA in History of Art and Museology at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland (Eugène Ferdinand Prize), and has been Associate Curator & Administrator at Maison d’Ailleurs, Museum of science-fiction, utopia and extraordinary journeys, and President of Biel/Bienne Photography Festival for several years. Although her work recalls photography, contemporary art, science-fiction, museum- and curatorial studies, it also reflects her curiosity for a transmedia and transdisciplinary approach.
In her recent researches as a freelance curator, she focuses her interests on exhibition design and devices. She is the curator and director of Display, space for artistic and curatorial practices in Berlin, co-founded with the artist Paul Polaris. In 2018, Display was awarded by the prize of the City of Berlin - Senat Kultur & Europa: Auszeichnung Künstlerische Projekträume und - Initiativen.
In 2018, she participates in the curatorial residency in Mumbai Art Room (Mumbai, India) in partnership with Pro Helvetia New Dehli. By focusing on the collaborative aspect of projects, she engage in various collaborations on the long term with institutions, curators, researchers and artists.
She is currently working on the curatorial research Contemporary Bodies - 2018-2019, supported by Pro Helvetia – Swiss art Council.
