CM von Hausswolff and Leif Elggren @ MASS Gallery
May 30 - June 1, 2014
507 Calles Street, Suite 108, Austin, TX 78202
MASS has organized multiple events around the visit of Leif Elggren and Carl Michael von Hausswolff, a Swedish multi-disciplinary art duo and “benevolent monarchs of the conceptual Royal Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV)“. Their work over the past 3+ decades includes the establishment of a fake government (which participated uninvited in the 2007 Venice Biennale after Elggren and Hausswolff had officially curated the Nordic Pavilion there in 2001). They are also prolific and longtime experimental composers, with a number of albums to their names. This is a rare opportunity to see them in Texas.
The evening at MASS gallery will be a conversation between the artists and curator X Tara Bhattacharya, followed by the screening of a film collaboration between Hausswolf and Thomas Nordanstad.
