EVENTS / Hosting Asad Raza


Hosting Asad,

or hosting ourselves; a biographical approach to life. Asad Raza will be hosted at the space of ERGO Collective and will develop an exhibition through a series of events starting on the 4th until the 11th September. The word “Host” is inspired by ERGO Collective’s approach to inhabiting a space in Kato Petralona and respectively hosting others in their new home. In turn, “Host” for Asad blurs the meaning of thoughts about life and art. We have more in common than we thought before and now we know that by exploring somebody’s story or the earth’s story, may in turn inspire others to dream or give meaning. 

This is a screening, a reading, a movement or just cooking.

Asad Raza creates dialogues and rejects disciplinary boundaries in his work, which conceives of art as a metabolic, active experience. Using actions and processes such as soil-making, tennis, and horticulture, his projects create encounters within and beyond the exhibition setting. They have been realized by institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Kaldor Public Art Projects in Sydney, Gropius Bau, the Serpentine Galleries, London; Metro Pictures; Urbane Kunst Ruhr, Essen; the Lahore Biennale; and his one-bedroom apartment in New York.
