Chair of the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies, Aeron Bergman is one half an artist duo with Alejandra Salinas. They present a collaborative project entitled Be a Pattern for the World at The Great Poor Farm Experiment, opening August 3.
Be a Pattern for the World is a think-tank collaboration between Piscine and Alejandra Salinas and Aeron Bergman. The collaboration takes the form of nine banners, a video, and a clothing line. The collaborative project is shown together with a selection from "Examples of Collaboration in Nature (and Culture)" an ongoing series of dye sublimation prints on metal by Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas. Piscine is a multi-dependent exhibition phenomenon based in Copenhagen, Denmark: a hybrid apparatus that handles solo, group and collaborative situations. Current members are: Jens Settergren, Ida Sønder Thorhauge, and Mark Tholander. Alejandra Salinas and Aeron Bergman co-founded Institute for New Connotative Action: an artist run initiative, and INCA Press.
The Poor Farm was founded in 2009 by Michelle Grabner and Brad Killam to facilitate and present artist’s projects, forums, and yearlong exhibitions at the former Waupaca County Poor Farm (built in 1876) in Little Wolf, Wisconsin. The Great Poor Farm Experiment is a series of exhibitions and educational forums that has been held for the past nine years at the Poor Farm located in rural Waupaca County, Wisconsin.
