Marylne Negro

"Tête à Tête", Poster serigraphy, 5 plates, each 3,96 m x 2,97 m at five different places in the city: GAK (association of modern art), Künstlerhaus, Städtische Galerie, Neustadtsbahnhof, foyer of the “Überseemuseum”.

„Tête à Tête“, artist Marylène Negro continues her series of interventions in urban spaces. With the simple means of advertising technology, she infiltrates urban spaces without transporting any discernible message with this mimetic gesture. Often any texts are missing in her „information carriers“, or if not, the words refer directly to the viewer and his or her actions.

(Translated from catalogue text)

20 local and international artists participated in the exhibition project „Do all Oceans Have Walls“ launched by GAK (association of modern art)

Along the Weser river, they produced art works, which are typical for the urban situation in Bremen and therewith created some kind of urban redefinition. Focus of interest was the direct face-off with the public to encourage new experiences with the environment.
