Exploring a longing for a world that lies beneath the ruins of modern times, Continuum combines robotic painting methods with Arabic artisanal practices. Liat Grayver and Nora Al-Badri have conceptualized Continuum to thematize and personally engage with the æsthetic(al) heritage of their families’ origins in mid to late 20th century Baghdad.
Al-Badri’s digital conceptual art and Grayver’s robotic painting merge in collaboration with graffiti artist and computer scientist Daniel Berio, who specializes in the computational generation of calligraphic patterns and forms, and their reproduction using drawing machines and robots. The work is presented as a room installation consisting of a series of drawings made with the support of the e-David robotic painting lab at the University of Konstanz.
Opening next Thursday, July 21, from 17:00
