Last week marked the opening of Claudia Comte’s ‘I Have Grown Taller from Standing with Trees’ and Marianna Simnett’s ‘SEIZURE’!
The Swiss artist Claudia Comte is known for her site-specific installations that bring together handmade sculptures, graphic works, digital technologies and interactive installations that invite the audience to participate in activities such as arm-wrestling and dancing. While SEIZURE is the first solo exhibition in Scandinavia by Marianna Simnett. The artist’s own body, mutated and remodeled, becomes the site in which her hypnotic fantasies are played out.
Celebrating culture and appreciating creative expression, be it in the drinks served or the art displayed, challenges people to expand their horizons and helps move society forward as a whole – so naturally it was a pleasure to be a part of both exhibitions, serving beers brewed at BRUS, as well as Mikropolis Cocktails throughout the evening.
