night of uncertainty alludes to an era of ambiguity where ecstasy, sensory overload, and power dynamics distort traditional frames of reference.
Lukas Heerich, Brigitte Kowanz, Rosanna Marie Pondorf and Jeremy Shaw

About

The exhibition with Lukas Heerich, Brigitte Kowanz, Rosanna Marie Pondorf and Jeremy Shaw depicts the overwhelming abundance of information and stimuli, emphasizing the disorienting effects on the human consciousness. Building on the media theories of the French philosopher Paul Virilio – whose texts from the 1970s and 1980s were a significant reference point for Kowanz – the exhibition unites works that engage with instability, boundlessness, and the transitory. Virilio's essays delineate the social repercussions of an accelerating world via media and the consequent shifts in perception and power distribution. In night of uncertainty the artists map out a fragmented reality where unknown states create new and open perspectives where certainty yields to ambiguity.

For Brigitte Kowanz's investigations into the speed and perception of the world, light is the primary medium that she uses both as a carrier of information and material. Kowanz's utilization of codes and language is echoed in Rosanna Marie Pondorf's wall works, where emojis emerge as modes of communication and symbols of power. Pondorf's examination of hierarchical structures, pornography and finance follows the intention of revealing power dynamics. Lukas Heerich's objects – reminiscent of clubs, fashion and fetish – are also characterized by places of the uncertain, where the boundaries of consciousness and physicality become blurred. The loss of control that is omnipresent in Heerich's works resonates in Jeremy Shaw's exploration of transcendental states. In semi-scientific experiments, Shaw combines music, ecstasy and photography to explore expanded states of consciousness and the resulting altered perception of the world.
