The Repetition Festival Show presents a rich body of work, highlighting some of the recurring subjects and forms in von Wedemeyer’s films and installations, while also declaring the breadth and diversity of his practice through the constant evolution of artworks.

For this solo exhibition at Project Arts Centre and later at Fondazione Galleria Civica, an exhibition apparatus has been designed to be re-installed every three weeks, leaving traces of previous incarnations and hinting at what is to come. Emerging out of the artworks themselves, the concept for the exhibition draws on the constantly revolving scenarios we see in von Wedemeyer’s films—looping temporally, physically, or narratively.

The Repetition Festival Show is accompanied by a free festival guide for all who visit the exhibition, published in both English and Italian. Designed by Till Gathmann and von Wedemeyer, it includes four newly commissioned film posters—montages that flesh out some of the films’ inner structures, as well new texts written by Tessa Giblin, Saskia Vermeulen and Andrea Viliani. The publication is also available to purchase at This is an extraordinary opportunity to see what amounts to a survey exhibition, expanded over time.

The Repetition Festival Show is curated by Tessa Giblin, Curator of Visual Art at Project Arts Centre, and the guide is co-produced with Fondazione Galleria Civica, Research Centre on Contemporaneity, Trento, where the exhibition will open in summer of 2011, curated by Andrea Viliani.

The publication and exhibition are made possible by the generous support of the Goethe-Institut Irland. With further thanks to Galerie Jocelyn Wolff, Koch Oberhuber Wolff, Till Gathmann and Marisa Baptista. Project Arts Centre is supported by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council.
