Under the direction of PHILIPPE PIROTTE MUT, the Kunsthalle Bern hosted in the end of 2008 an exhibition by American artist RITA MCBRIDE and Belgian artist KOENRAAD DEDOBBELEER.

This exhibition knew its first instalment earlier in 2008 at the Frac Bourgogne in Dijon for which curator EVA GONZALEZ-SANCHO invited the artists to collaborate. The show then travelled to the Kunsthalle in Bern, where it was presented under the title Hall.

RITA MCBRIDE & KOENRAAD DEDOBBELEER took over the first floor of the Kunsthalle with two large works that included the reproduction of service station called a ‘roof shelter’ based on MCBRIDE‘s photographs, as well as a wooden frame of the attic of a residential block in which DEDOBBELEER was living. These two works were concentrated into two rooms from the five available on the first floor and thus leaving the exhibition space empty. The visitors were entering the installation which was looking like a film set or a stage as members of the public and as actor at the same time.

Hall by RITA MCBRIDE & KOENRAAD DEDOBBELEER was on view at Kunsthalle Bern from October 4 to November 30, 2008. Please note that DEDOBBELEER will be on view at Mai 36 Galerie in Zürich from January 12 to March 4, 2017.
