Kennedy Browne: The Myth of the Many and the One
September 6-29th, Stadtgalerie Bern, Switzerland. Vernissage September 6th from 6pm.
Kennedy Browne will present at the Bern Biennale within the exhibition Kopf oder Zahl (Heads or Tails). For this edition, the biennale is themed Kapital and will see a diverse range of artistic responses to the recent financial crises which have wracked western economies over the last four years.
Kennedy Browne’s work, The Myth of the Many in the One, was produced over the summer on location in Silicon Valley, California. This newly scripted work draws on the genre of the business biography, attempting to decode the masculinist myth of the visionary leader of technological progress and his place in our culture. Working on location with a child actor and a voice-over artist, a pre-Silicon Valley orchard provides a significant mental and emotional backdrop to this narrative.
Other participating artists in the biennale include Oliver Ressler and Zanny Begg, Maria Eichhorn, Zachary Formwalt, Christian Jankowski and and Silke Wagner.
The Myth of the Many in the One, single channel HD video, 19 minutes.
