As part of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Arts Programme, a new installation by Brazilian artist Ana Maria Tavares will be presented in the BMW Haus am Kurfürstendamm, Berlin.
Her work Deviating Utopias (from the Social Hieroglyphs series) will be unveiled on Thursday 30th April during Berlin Gallery Weekend.
The work continues the artist’s exploration of the relationship between art, architecture and design, and the architectural legacy of modernism in Brazil. Tavares will present an installation which will create a virtual environment, depicting a blend of technology and craftsmanship, industrial and organic materials and speed and silence, properties she found present in Rolls-Royce motor cars, following a visit to the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, England.
Ana Maria Tavares said, “During my recent visit to the Rolls-Royce plant, with its extraordinary architecture, I was struck by the way it has a productive function while being like a capsule which suspends time. These elements inspired me to present a new work for Rolls-Royce as a virtual immersive environment, creating a mechanical capsule for a dream journey to bridge the rational and organic worldviews.”
Public Exhibition dates: 1-11 May 2015
Opening times: Monday to Saturday: 10am-8pm, Sunday: 11am-6pm
Rolls-Royce Studio, BMW Haus am Kurfürstendamm 31, 10719 Berlin
