Marcellvs L. at n.b.K. | Kunst und Philosophie (06/24/2011)
Apparently, there is a friendship between art and philosophy. As with every friendship, articulating a certain difference is part of it. Art and philosophy are not the same. But the difference already passes through the concept of art and philosophy itself. Perhaps art and philosophy are connected by the fact that art generates a singular concept of art, and philosophy its own conception of philosophy. The exhibition invites artists to define for themselves a relation to philosophy: from the perspective and with the means of artistic articulation.

Marcellvs L. is a Brazilian video artist who has recently moved to Berlin. His ‘Rhizome’ series comprise mostly single-sequence shots in which the video camera is held still, at times drifting in and out of the subject: a seemingly ordinary moment, a detail or fragment, of city life. Recently he has been developing more ambitious video installations, which are full of delicate takes and revelations on time, progression and life itself.
