Furthermore, GlogauAIR will be hosting the selected Open Call for curatorial projects launched last Spring. Where I begin and where you end, will question our perception of boundaries within a communal space. The artist talk Sensitive Geometry will be tackling the subject of space as a set of tangible variables defined by individual experience.
Friday night would be submerged under the beats of the resident artist Mint Park who will be presenting Night of the In-Betweens, a project developed by her, Rodrigo Seña and Anders Bach.
Open Studios September 2017 will be showcasing the never-before-seen projects that the 10 resident artists have been working on these past few months. The artist duo Dawei Lin and Lin Mi will be evoking the collective memory of Germany and China, while Ben Reilly uses essentially old materials to bring back that sensuous oldness that is not the past but time itself. In her audiovisual installation, Brittany Brush constructs an experiential subconscious mental space, activating internal psychological impulses that connect the body and mind.
At the same time, the painter Anahita Ghazanfari embarks on a journey into the living and breathing pages of history, to reach the long-lost symbiosis between the rhythm of nature and that of Men. The Irish artist Louise Manifold has been working on destabilizing traditional symbolism of what we call “home”, in order to reflect upon the contemporary existential crisis, whilst Fermin Sales highlights the intergenerational and cultural gap existent between urban and rural societies, through manipulation of old cinematographic footage.
In her installation Eunhee Hong explores the stereotypical viewpoints and perspectives that many of us carry around unwittingly, while Chen Syui reflects on the problems of contemporary society by creating an unreal world made out of light and mirrors. On the other hand, Karine Bonneval focuses her work on the growing environmental problem by examining the surface on which humans are anchored and the territory on which they live, whereas Marie-Jeanne Hoffner examines our relationship to reconstructed architecture and the utopian ideas behind modernist architecture.
WHERE I BEGIN AND WHERE YOU END
Project Space Exhibition by
Zaida Guerrero Casado // Susanna Hanna // Regina Magdalena Sebald
How does our surrounding space determines us? How do we determine the space around us? Space experienced as a concrete physical as well as a psychological construct. Boundaries are set from ourselves or from outside? How is our social interaction? Are we protagonists, observers or do we isolate ourselves? These are the main questions the three artists Zaida Guerrero Casado, Susanna Hanna and Regina Magdalena Sebald elaborate in their actual art work.
Zaida’s installation deals with the self-defined, personal and arranged limits. The visitor is forced to react, if he wants to move from one room to the others. In her performance Regina puts herself at the mercy of the visitor’s reaction by giving the mandate to others to decide about the handling of her own person. Susanna’s video installation seems to offer a beautiful shelter, where we can hide. However, this is just an apparent and very fragile refuge. The agitated outside world intrudes into the inside of the shelter.
Where you begin and where I end will take place at GlogauAIR (Glogauer Str. 16, 10999 Berlin) on 22 and 23 September.
