At the summer solstice on June 20, Johanna Hedva's first solo exhibition in Germany opens in the ruins of the monastery. Hedva is an artist, writer, musician and astrologer. In artistic practice, Hedva deals with radical permeability of the body and tries to explore its relationship to time, capitalism, death, nothing and the cosmos.
For the exhibition God is an Asphyxiating Black Sauce, Hedva combines new and unpublished pieces of sound by friends and colleagues with their own, location-specific and changing music and text works. Different versions of the exhibition can be experienced remotely and on site, virtually and telepathically.
The installation continues Hedva's search for the break up of the unholy unity of time and productivity and creates a soundscape of noise, music and language that triggers and howls at the infinite. How does this absence feel, how does it sound, this black sauce that flows under, through, without and in our everyday time? Does absence actually exist? Or is it not always interspersed with stories, memories and ghosts?
JOHANNA HEDVA FEAT.
