The Sonancy of Falling and Standing Repeatedly transforms Galerie im Turm into an experiential workshop, a sensorial playground, a celestial site and a privy witches' hut; a place to localize and expand notions of sensuality.

About

What characterises humans as social beings? How do communities arise? What do we need in order to feel safe and secure in our surroundings? Melissa Steckbauer dedicates herself to these questions in an installation-based work made of feathers and foam, filled with granny quilts and sweet-smelling herbs. This work can be investigated on auditory, olfactory and tactile levels. The exploration of sensitivity and softness is a key point of artistic focus, allowing moments of intimacy and affinity to arise. Such moments bring people together, laying the groundwork for community – while the shifting borders between self and other are retraced, over and over again.

Melissa Steckbauer's work is accompanied by text-based contributions from Patrick Califia, Ewa Majewska, Onyx B. Carmine, J&K / Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard, Nicola Swietkowiak, and Alok Vaid-Menon.
