CORIN SWORN
The Rag Papers
14 April — 9 June 2013

The NAK. Neuer Aachener Kunstverein presents the first institutional solo exhibition in Germany of the Canadian-British artist Corin Sworn. The Rag Papers represents the artist’s most comprehensive exhibition project to date and was co-commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery in London.

The Rag Papers (2013) presents a film as part of an installation in which a synchronised interplay of sound and light augments the film. In videos, installations and drawings, Sworn investigates themes like the translation of subjective experiences into general history or, conversely, she examines how the process of history is narrated.

These sequences of the film are interspersed with recordings of transitional spaces like sorting depots and flea markets. Their presence is carried over into a second exhibition room featuring large-scale, textile-based wall pieces as another element that augments the filmic space.

Corin Sworn (born 1977 in London) lives in Glasgow and will represent Scotland at the 2013 Venice Biennial.
