Dear Everybody!

On Thursday we together with Ingrid Furre will host a reading group in the room of Furre’s installation. We will read an excerpt from Arakawa and Madeline Gins' book Architectural Body.

You don’t need to read the text in advance, we will have printouts on hand and read it aloud, discuss and make sense of it together. The text is in english, and it is possible to have the conversation in english or in a mix of scandinavian languages.

We will meet at 18:00 in the lobby of Hotel Avenue.

We will serve coffee and cake.

If anyone wants to see the exhibition beforehand please make an appointment at forlagetgestus@gmail.com

The pair Arakawa (artist and architect from Japan) and Madeline Gins (poet, artist and architect from US) developed in the 90's a theory of ‘procedural architecture’ to further their philosophical implication's impact on human lives. Through architecture specifically, they endeavored to ‘learn how not to die,’ a concept that they termed ‘reversible destiny,’ believing firmly that the architectural works that they created could transform the personal well-being and longevity of those who lived within them.
