Artist talk: Dias + Riedweg

Meet the artists behind this summer's exhibition Possible Archives the Swiss-Brazilian artist duo Dias & Riedweg.

Mauricio Dias (1964, Brazil) and Walter Riedweg (b. 1955, Switzerland) display 8 large, immensely poetic and at the same time sharp analytical video works of the nooks and crannies of the globe’s over- and underworlds. The works vary from enormous projections to small installations, which playfully include both documentary and performance. The exhibition at Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center is the first major solo exhibition of Dias & Riedweg in Denmark.

Dias & Riedweg live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and are among the most recognized names from the Brazilian art scene these years. The duo have worked together since 1993 and participated in leading exhibitions worldwide among others the Venice Biennale, the Biennale in Sao Paulo and Documenta in Kassel.
