We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition on Friday June, 1st from 7pm to 9pm

How do we navigate in a globalized world dominated by increasing borders?

Comprising two individual projects, the present exhibition approaches, both on physical and conceptual levels, different perspectives towards the representation of space and its limits. “Border Matters” is the no-man’s-land in which we will embark on a journey to explore new perceptions of boundaries and discover how inevitably we define ourselves by borders.

Claus Rottenbacher’s photographic series from 2016 Non Plus Ultra delves into the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. Each image will present the unromantic and brutalist landscape along the Gibraltar coast revealing the underlying historical territory conflicts between Spain and the United Kingdom, but yet comparably to current dramatic geopolitical affairs. For more than three centuries, the British flag blows over the Rock of Gibraltar, but this little piece of land of no more than 7km² was the scenery in Antique myths and legends as well as the end of the known world until the 15th Century.

Susanne Rottenbacher’s practice is based on the exploration of light’s perception and its power to dissolve spatial scopes. The work Disassembly is an extensive installation that resembles a three-dimensional luminous drawing prospecting the relationship between space and light through an explosive movement. Consisting in a 10 x 10 x 4 meters piece built with LED tubes and Perspex objects being taut between floor and ceiling, this piece marks a new stage in her artistic oeuvre.

CCA Andratx is excited to present for the first time in Spain the works by Susanne and Claus Rottenbacher in an exhibition project that will travel to international venues in the future. The show is the result of the work started during Susanne’s residency in the CCA Artist-in-Residence Program in October 2016, during which she developed and edited the concept for a new spatial light installation and a joint exhibition with her husband Claus. After one and a half year of hard work and investigation, we are now honoured and wish to express our gratitude to Susanne and Claus for evoking and recalling in such major art project the contemporary question of Border Matters.
