A new permanent video installation by Egill Sæbjörnsson
at the Robert Koch-Institute, Seestrasse 10, Berlin..
A public installation by Egill Sæbjörnsson has been inaugurated in Berlin, located in front of the brand new laboratory building of the Robert Koch-Institute. The work is a self-generative video installation, consisting of a projection onto a 6.5 meter high concrete construction. The computer animated image source is programmed to infinitely generate images and patterns and therefore has an ever-changing appearance. The projection can be viewed after dark daily.
The piece titled Steinkugel (Stone-sphere) was commissioned by The Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR) and the Robert Koch-Institute as a result of a closed competition “Art in Public Space” in 2013 where Sæbjörnsson´s proposal was awarded first prize.

Event on Torstrasse 111, Berlin
Sept 21st 2013 at 15:00-22:00
The Bakery is a performance, installation and research project initiated by Egill Sæbjörnsson in collaboration with curator Annabelle von Girsewald.
The aim of the project is to learn more about the effect of food in terms of physical, cultural and spiritual diet. The event brings the magical courtyard on Torstrasse to life and invites Berlin artists and creative people, in the broadest sense to make “bread” together. The bread will be made of clay, drawn on paper or whatever ideas people may come up with. The project led by the artists is to be understood as a process-orientated and it is particularly important that there are no guidelines or restrictions. The final result will be presented in the spring of 2014 in the form of a café exhibition where there will be bread or cake to consume, to digest and to purchase.
Participating artists; Rosa Barba (IT) Florian Neufeldt (DE) Libia Castro & Olafur Olafsson (ES, IS)
