"Semantic Gap, by Dolores Zinny and Juan Maidagan"
2004-03-06 until 2004-05-16
Lund Konsthall
Lund, , SE Sweden

After two months of requisite renovation, Lund Konsthall will open with refreshed premises and a new structure and course of programme. The opening exhibition introduces the artists Dolores Zinny and Juan Maidagan. With their exhibition "Semantic Gap", their investigation has originated from the characteristic building of Lund Konsthall. They have made research in the history of the building and the late, highly respected architect Klas Anshelm from Lund. In the exhibition, we will be able to share the artists' visual comments and poetical associations, revealing both thought-provoking and unexpected connections.

The project "Six architects respond to a kind of Rorschach test" comprises video interviews with Los Angeles based architects. The artists Michael Bears & Pia Rönicke asked six architects to make comments on a large amount of slides depicting housing stocks in Los Angeles, as a way of investigating architects preconceived ideas on how to design and construct. The project was exposed in 2003 at the R. M. Schindlers MAK Center in Los Angeles and will now be exhibited in a modified version for Lund Konsthall. Being site-specific in form and not in the complex of problems, the investigation could have been realised in any other place with similar result. "Art and Production of Knowledge" is arranged in co-operation with Malmö Art Academy. During the past thirty years, the concept of art has not only expanded enormously but also changed its focus from the artefact to the location or space where the artistic intervention takes place, from emotion to reflection, from intuition to research. The concept of art has widened itself into being interrogative as well as being reflective/self-reflective and at the same time the locations where art are being exhibited, discussed and produced have been decentralised and become global. This being the case, art has transformed into a hybrid character which, in its turn, will - quite likely - imply consequences for all the parts of art life which support and exhibit art - Art Halls, Museums, pedagogues, research centres, university scholars of art, academies of art and artists. In this great task of transformation, Lund Konsthall will be finding its new role.
