Renée Green

Galerie Nagel Draxler | Berlin

Renée Green’s Free Agent Media (FAM)—an ongoing enterprise covering a wide range of time-based projects, from lectures to excursions—turns thirteen this year. To celebrate, Green created “United Space of Conditioned Becoming2” in Berlin. (“Number 1” took place at New York’s Participant Inc during roughly the same time period; Green describes the pairing as a test of the differences between the two exhibition sites.) Both versions of “United Space” presented excerpts from recent FAM productions, mostly videos and films, from Vienna Periphery Walk, 2000, to Secret (Part 1 to Part 3), 2005 (part of the 2006 Paris exhibition “Unité d’habitation”).

The works could be seen at several viewing stations: four large monitors on a long table, a DVD “jukebox” linked to a projector, eight portable DVD players with headphones sitting on as many table and chair sets, and a flat monitor in the window.
