On November 18, 2010, Klara Liden will be awarded blauorange 2010, the art prize of the German cooperative banks, at Bonner Kunstverein. The prizewinner exhibition is entitled “Rumpfflächen und Plünderbanden” (Peneplains and Marauding Bands) and will open that same evening.

Liden says about herself: “Part of me is this poor architect dealing with the problem of existing structures in the city, part of me is this amateur dancer or performer who wants to return ideas of rhythm to the activity of building, or of re-appropriating the built environment.”

She works with found materials, transforms the space as she encounters it. She conquers her means directly at the (exhibition) site and sets them against all norms and expectations. In this new installation for the prizewinner exhibition blauorange 2010, she engages with the city of Bonn in terms of landscape (peneplains) and history (marauding bands).

In other works, videos, and slide projections, the passionate rebel fascinates the spectator as an androgynous being. She ruptures social conditioning with her great energy and surprising turns. The shaping role of music that is striking in her video works she here carries out in a sound installation.

Klara Liden was born in Stockholm in 1979; after studying architecture and art in Stockholm und Berlin, she lived first in New York, then moving to Berlin. Her prizewinning exhibition, curated by Christiane Rekade, will be on view until January 30, 2011. The exhibition catalog will be published in January 2011.

The art prize blauorange by the German Cooperative Banks is awarded annually and focuses on encouraging and supporting young artists living in Germany. In 2007 Danh Vo received the prize, and in 2008 Kitty Kraus, and in 2009 Björn Braun. It is endowed with 20,000 euros.
