Display was founded as a junction point between an artist and a curator. We understand it as a transitory space, where creation, presentation, representation and questioning contemporary artistic and curatorial practice can be done simultaneously. Display embodies a (meta)physical and discursive transmission. Connection line between inside & outside, seen & unseen, a vitrine is a display. By extension, the exhibition room is a display. Vitrine is the exhibition cycle of Display. Artists are invited to invest the showcase/space and collaborate with the team for a site-specic installation with a focus on transformations and processes. We aim here to give importance 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 place where we explore, invent and create rituals, where we can put them and their procedures as symbolic, rhythmic performance up for discussion. Display is a space for art and curatorial experimentation.
MARIE DUPASQUIER (*1984, Lausanne) is a Swiss – French independent curator and museologist, living between Zürich and Berlin. She graduated in History of Art and Museology at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, 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, an art and project space in Berlin, co-founded with the artist Paul Polaris and created a Swiss union for curatorial practice, Capsula with the researcher Sara Petrucci. She is working for several galleries and develops new ways of collaborating on exhibitions with artists, like Lucia Kempkes, Anna Meschiari or the duo Anja Langer and Marie Jeschke.
