Fiete Stolte (DE)
Ásgrímur Jónsson Museum
Born in 1979 in Berlin, Stolte graduated in 2007 from Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee. He lives in Berlin where he works with Sassa Trülzsch Gallery.
In many of his previous projects Stolte has experimented with our everyday relationship with time, changing the normal seven-day week to eight days by shaving three hours off each twenty-four. For these modified phases he has created a specific calendar, a watch, an alarm, etc. He has even proved, in a work consisting of Polaroid photos, that it is possible to capture eight sunrises and sunsets within a seven-day week, if you change your perspective by traveling around the world. Stolte creates a new piece in which the viewer interacts with the space and the sleeping artist temporarily. A closed circuit installation interweaves different chronological layers in the exhibition space.
