TPTP/Transient Projects To People is an organization dedicated to artistic research and exposure. It is especially devoted to curated art projects that, next to the art work itself, also explore more ephemeral aspects of art and exhibition making.
Showing at Trajector:
"Here to Visit"
For this event, Philip Tonda from TPTP will transform the hotel room into an installation that can be defined as a mix between a souvenir shop, an exhibition space, and a hotel room.
The installation takes it's starting point in the idea of being a visitor, and explores various aspects of this: The branded touristic city, The individual desire for traveling, The urge to discover new land and historical aspects of this, and most of all, The individuals relation to the place s/he visits.
About the artists:
Johanna Domke (DE/DK) makes videos that revolve around our experience of reality. Without a clear narrative, and with a camera that silently moves through space, it's hard to tell which of her videos are staged and which are made of real situations in public space: The outcome is equally fascinating and disturbing. She has gained international recognition of her work and has her home base in Copenhagen and Berlin.
Lauren Moffatt (AU/DE/FR) explores the idea of perception through the camera lens in relation to "real experienced life". She often focuses on places that are frequently visited by tourists, and in her latest work she deals with the relationship between human and landscape in her native country, Australia. She is currently attending a Masters of Arts program in Paris.
Eva Marie Rødbro (DK/NL) often finds her subjects far away from home, and has produced work during stays in Greenland and the US. She strikingly captures the fragile sensitivity of youth, through photography and experimental video. Eva Rødbro graduated from the Rieveld Academy in Amsterdam, was rewarded with the Danish "Politikens Talent-prize" in 2009 and has recently shown in the prestigious photo museum FOAM in Amsterdam.
Charlotte Seidel (DE/FR) works with small scale, sometimes nearly invisible, interventions in public space. With these she explores the relationship between private and public, while thoughtfully questioning and demonstrating her position in relation to her surroundings. She is an artist as well as a curator, and is currently attending an artist in resident program at Palais de Tokio, Paris.
Philip Tonda (DK/NL/FR) investigates in ideas and imagery that present an ‘image of reality’ shown to the public. This may be someone's living-situation (such as ‘being a stranger’), or it may be objects like city-postcards or profile photos found on the Internet. Aiming to give these representational ideas and objects new, personal meaning, he creates "reconstructions" and "translations": Ephemeral performances, writings, sculptural reconstructions and photography. He works as an artist as well as a curator in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Paris.
