I know where you have been for the last four hundred and twenty-six days

Cyprus : I know where you have been for the last four hundred and twenty-six days

Since 2012, pick nick has developed art-making practices which often take place in public spaces in collaboration with fellow artists, writers, researchers, and curators. The approach places the group in a versatile and vulnerable place where the “art object” is defocused and methods of audience-making prompted. pick nick experiments with ways of doing art which push boundaries to make new audience contact and attempts to unwind spectatorship into a kind of potential sociality. Their pieces merge in transit stages, and inhabit space according to the conditions that they shift singularly each time. A gesture on site includes their invitation to Point Centre for Contemporary Art to make its library a public feature of its space. During their residency at Point, they will configure meeting points with its curatorial and educational practices in an effort to work across differences and affinities by setting up research playgrounds and sites of cooperation. Works that were initiated, and presented in first part at previous residencies, will play another role in second part at Point in how they form a dynamic (audience) experience and propose different modes of display around the given circumstances of institutional space. Ιnvited guests will react to what they see in their own ways.

Bom Dia was founded in 2011 by Manuel Raeder and Manuel Goller in Berlin, solely run by Manuel Raeder since 2013. Bom Dia is specialized in high quality artist books that are conceived as an integral part of an art work or as the art work itself that, often, plays with the format of the book and reflects its medium. A focus of Bom Dia lies in publishing contemporary artists from Latin America. The books of Bom Dia are produced in close collaboration with a group of fellow artists, among others Henning Bohl, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, Mariana Castillo Deball, Haegue Yang, Leonor Antunes, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Danh Vo, Nina Canell, and BLESS.
