Wet beads on the line INCUBE8 Part VIII Johana Hartwig Pre-preview critique led by Sara Rees: Thursday 22nd November, 6pm Preview: Thursday 22nd November, 7pm-late Exhibition Continues: Friday 23rd — Sunday 25th November, 12-6pm daily Wet beads on the line features a series of mini visual sketches, inspired by the humanity of the inanimate and the beauty of the incidental. Responding in a playful and intuitive way, Hartwig produces these sketches, captured on film, to form an elegant and thought provoking dance between multiple screens. Sewing these screens together are some curious objects and maquette experiments, made in tandem with and apriori to the films. Hartwig shares with us exquisite symbiosis; a light touch, the small, often overlooked transitional moments as we touch our world and our world touches us. ‘Object muses' and ‘objects of interest' include ‘plastic bags' and ‘overhead telephone lines'. Like many good love stories Hartwig feels an immediate aesthetic attraction or fascination for the things that she films, followed by more thoughtful musings, including those around story, purpose, usage, impact and future. “The magic of watching the elements play, on man made objects, on the every day. Invisible wet beads gathering speed, then merging, surfing, falling, sprawling.
