ADA Rotterdam - Area for Debate and Art

Wednesday 14 September 2011. Part of Guest Presentations.

ADA hosted a talk by Dresden based artist Guido Reddersen, who came to Rotterdam for a residency at the Goethe Institute, Rotterdam.

In his artistic practice, Reddersen seeks to transform the perception of clearly identifiable objects and shapes by exposing layers of subjective and objective patterns of perception, classification and communication.

During his two-month stay in Rotterdam, Reddersen developed a phenomenological comparison between the cities of Dresden and Rotterdam. The results fed into an installation dealing with what Reddersen calls “the culturally conditioned need to connect to everyday objects.”

Guido Reddersen (Jena, 1980) holds a masters degree from the College of Fine Arts in Dresden. He has participated in group exhibitions such as Hitch Hike, Cars, Omegna (I) and The Darkest Corner of the Whitest Cube, Kunsthaus Dresden, 2011; House Warming, Hopkins Hall, Columbus, USA, 2010. Solo exhibitions include Liebe und böse Objekte at Gallery Doppel De, Dresden, 2009.
