Be a Pattern for the World is a think-tank collaboration between Piscine and Bergman & Salinas. The collaboration takes the form of nine banners, a video, and a clothing line. The work was previously exhibited at Alt_Cph18 in Copenhagen in May and will be exhibited at the Poor Farm in Wisconsin in August.

Outer voice: Disguised prominence observed.

Inner voice: I have rarely seen such a beautiful man. But in the lower half of the face, the mouth is the only one that is beautifully beautiful, or there are some small bizarre rhymes, an irregular nose, a dark and like burned skin, in short all that is needed to save me from the kind of flawless beauty that most awakes ridicule.


Piscine is a multidependent exhibition phenomenon based in Copengahen, Denmark: a hybrid apparatus that handles solo, group and collaborative situations. Current members are: Jens Settergren, Ida S√łnder Thorhauge, and Mark Tholander.

Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas are an artist duo currently based in Portland, OR.
