In celebration of the exhibition “Piña, Why is the Sky Blue?” artists Stephanie Comilang and Simon Speiser will be in conversation with the curator Lisa Long on Friday, 2 December 2022, 8:00 p.m.
Piña, Why is the Sky Blue? is an affirming techno-feminist vision of a future in which ancestral knowledge and new technologies converge. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a video/virtual-reality installation (2021) of the same title, a speculative documentary that narrates the story of a spiritual medium known as Piña. As a form of artificial intelligence, Piña is able to receive and collect inherited knowledge, messages, and dreams from people around the world in order to secure their survival. The show featuring this newly acquired installation marks the first institutional solo exhibition in Germany of Berlin-based artists Stephanie Comilang and Simon Speiser.
This occasion marks the closing weekend for both exhibitions currently on view: “Piña, Why is the Sky Blue?” and “at dawn”. The foundation will have special opening hours on Friday, December 2, 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. The exhibitions will also be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday during the regular opening times between noon and 6:00 p.m.
