Artist talk & breakfast with Bunny Rogers
Artist's Talk with Bunny Rogers and KUB director Thomas D. Trummer.
Fee: € 5 plus admission
Bunny Rogers is planning expansive installations across all four floors of Kunsthaus Bregenz, the various scenarios and prevailing atmosphere being inspired by American funerals. The ground floor features heavy curtains, floral wreaths, and black ribboning, whilst elsewhere roses are visible that have been cast in concrete. Crowd control barriers are also employed.A real lawn is being laid on two floors. Soil, rubbish, and withered flowers become metaphors for the poetic and painful, beauty and transience — an art that does not shy away from the eerie, to remind each of us of our own responsibilities. It is a memorial, “objective art is impossible,” according to Bunny Rogers.
Bunny Rogers (born 1990 in Houston, Texas, USA) graduated in 2012 from Parsons School of Design in New York with a BA in visual arts. In 2017 she completed her Master of Fine Arts at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. Bunny Rogers produces sculptures, installations, videos, and photographs. She has also become known for her poetry, which she presents online and at readings. She has exhibited at, amongst others, Hamburger Bahnhof, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, as well as being part of Ulrich Obrist’s project 89plus.
