Arnold Dreyblatt’s (b. 1953 in New York City, living in Berlin since 1984) most recent work deals with a special mode of reflection – the short phases in which attention shifts from the current situation and focuses on experienced and possible future events. The cognitive moments recurring at intervals, in which free association, introspection and the blending out of restrictive circumstances play a central role, constitute an important basis for creativity – at the same time they represent a moment of retreat from external productivity. Dreyblatt’s exhibition The Resting State at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) brings to mind various aspects of this cognitive process and at the same time induces it. Based on a rhythmic composition of visual and acoustic elements as well as text fragments from scientific studies compiled by the artist, the installation directs the focus onto the role which narrative techniques play in consciousness research.
