THE SHAPE OF A STORY
The German philosopher Martin Buber believed that human beings only fully establish themselves in the world, an I, when they are connecting with another human being, a You. Only at the moment when we relate to another human being, the You, do we, the I, engage in our existence with the entirety of our potential.

COLINE MAROTTA - KEEPING IN TOUCH
Brigade is proud to present Keeping in touch a solo exhibition by French artist Coline Marotta (b.1991). Life is busy and a constant stream of one event after the other, making it hard to meet all ends, clutching on to existence rather than gripping it with agency and purpose. But not in the paintings by Coline Marotta, which offers a much-needed counterpoint to the strife of life.
TOMASO BINGA - POESIA MUTA
Brigade is proud to present the first Scandinavian exhibition of the Italian artist Tomaso Binga (b. 1931, Salerno, lives and works in Rome). The artistic identity of Tomaso Binga came into being during Bianca Pucciarelli Menna’s ‘Oggi Spose’ performance in Rome, 1977, where she married her alter ego as a reaction to the lack of attention feminist art received in the 1970s. Binga has since worked under her male pesudonym to question male privilege in the art world and emphasize the gender issues inherent in art.
NICOLE COSON & GARRETT PRUTER - PICTURE HOUSE
Picture House revolves around the concept of memory. Memories are unstable, but also essential to navigating our future. Our decisions are based on our experiences, ideally guiding us into safe territories and away from harm.
ERIC DOERINGER - I COPY THEREFORE I AM
"When an image is reproduced by hand, there is inherently some interpretation by the second artist. Any reproduction - no matter how precise - introduces a change. The “copy” exists in a different space, is made from different molecules, and is younger than the original." - Eric Doeringer
ANDREA VILLALÓN - THE SHELTER OF MEANING
04 JUNE 2021 - 11 JULY 2021 Villalón’s figurative paintings and stained glass works emerge from a highly personal and transformative exploration of identity, representation and self-reflection in the 21st Century.
