In his ongoing project The Artworks of the Future (2013), Mariusz Tarkawian draws what contemporary artists will be making in ten, twenty, or a hundred years. Some of these artists are well-known, others do not yet exist, and others—as Tarkawian says—are misappropriated from their actual callings (such as his own brother, who is a mechanic). For the Bergen Assembly exhibition, Tarkawian creates a “pictorial digest” of the Institute of the Disappearing Future, which will literally disappear three weeks before the rest of the exhibition closes.
Mariusz Tarkawian (f. 1983) lives and works in Warszawa. His project for Bergen Assembly is realized with the generous support of Hordaland Kunstsenter
