During the exhibition, the website will be transformed into a virtual showroom where curious visitors as well as potential buyers can familiarise themselves with the work prior to the NFT fair on 9 January 2022 at Kunsthalle Giessen.

Künstlerstatement von Studio Beisel zur Ausstellung St. Beisel

With their walk-through installation, the artist duo Studio Beisel invites you on a journey between this world and beyond. Visitors traverse various landscapes through five rooms, both physically and mentally. Parallel to the physical experience, Laurenz Raschke and Kajetan Skurski conquer the virtual space in the form of artworks composed of Non-Fungible Tokens. These NFTs exist only virtually and are based on the traces left behind by visitors, which can be experienced on ‚‘ and ultimately purchased. The both spiritual and digital journey thematises humorously the human desire to leave an imprint on the ephemeral world.
A pilgrim passport grants access to the individual rooms.
Laurenz Raschke (*1989 in Halle / Saale) and Kajetan Skurski (*1991 in Gdynia) studied under Prof. Heiner Goebbels at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Gießen and have been working together at the intersection of visual and performing arts since 2015. Various exhibitions and performances include, i. a. Palais de la Porte Doreé (Paris), Schillertage (Nationaltheater Mannheim), Hessische Theatertage, Fast Forward Festival for Young Directors, Frankfurter Kunstverein.
