Conner Contemporary Art is pleased to present a special *gogo projects installation, Wir packen in unseren Koffer / Packing Our Suitcase, by Die Vettern, an international artist group formed by Lina Vargas De La Hoz, Christine Aue, Evi Leuchtgelb and Christa Aistleitner. In their collaboration, the four artists draw upon individual perceptions of living respectively in the Austrian cities of Vienna and Linz and here, in Washington, DC. Die Vettern reimagined the three cities, exploring themes of growth, tourism and migration through imagery inspired by natural forms, monuments, and rhythms of life to create drawing, sculpture, photography and video. Their installation transforms our second gallery into an immerse environment that offers experiences ranging from introspective to engagingly playful.
This project is generously supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum Washington, Kultur Niederösterreich and Kulturland Oberösterreich.
There will be an opening night reception, Saturday, February 4th from 6 to 8pm. Artists in attendance.
