Liquid Lunch exhibition. This was second exhibition in the Versus series.
The exhibition was at the BAS CS Gallery as part of Kolony Wedding e. V. . The formal art theme of the exhibition was work done exclusively with either liquid or solid paints. The theme of the exhibition was our daily bread and drink. In addition to numerous works of our contemporaries, the works of people who have left our world was also shown. The topic of the work is devoted to either solid or liquid food of humanity or around it. From sugar to beer from fish to milk from teeth to … well, you already understand. In addition to traditional genres of art such as painting, graphics and sculpture, various drinks and solid food was also on display. Many thanks to the Vinogradov Gallery, the Kabinett Auktion House and the SBKG school for technical and moral support.
Eine Ausstellung zu dem Thema „patriarchalischen Auswirkungen auf die jetzige Weltordnung“. Medien, die uns umgeben, sind von männlichen Belangen geprägt. Macht ist Liebe, meinen einige immer noch. In der interaktiven Ausstellung wird die Diversität der Druckmedien dargestellt, die unseren Alltag füllt. Dabei hinterfragt das Konzept die symbolische Deutung der Charaktere und der Abbildungen.
Zäune, Zölle und Staubsauger, diese Dinge umgeben uns und geben das Lebenstempo vor. Dabei ändern sich mediale Texte, doch weniger die dazu gehörende Bilder. Diesen Fragen geht die Ausstellung nach.
Vernissage 13.01.2023 18:00-22:00 musikalische Begleitung: Doe Padre
Miriam Bork is a costume designer who works with fabric as an artist and sculptor at the same time. The Iraqi painter Younis Al Azzawy, a virtuoso painter and draftsman, who has been living in Berlin since the early 1980s, processes daring experiences of human existence in his acrylic paintings. Eva-Maria Rölke – graced the opening with keyboarding.
The paintings of Younis Al Azzawy are full of eroticism and voirism. They trace a reference to Egon Scheli and Luciano Freud with some salon touch and a share of self-irony.
Knitted underwear from Miriam Bork perfectly complemented the exposition, bringing to it either a museum or a forensic flavor. At the opening, the ironic pathos of the visual was supported by the performance of classical music by pianist Eva-Maria Rölke
Originally, my show was supposed to be about language as object and non-standard ways of circulating language, thus creating a new epistemological field, supporting our experience of communication, dialogue and correspondence. Court language or Hofsprache, seemed like a perfect match for this since it’s a very old technology in language, that has kept its implications and identity throughout its whole existence. When we engage ourselves in court discourse, we are aware of what the implications are of utterances as such as well as statements. Nevertheless, I, as you see, abandoned this idea and decided to organize an exhibition around identity and biography. Hofsprache and court language still plays a role here, as that specific function in language ascribes us a precise and enclosed identity. In court we are responsibility for our actions and words with our body. We support what we say with our body. Does this resemble how we respond to an image? Do we share the same attachment to an image of ourselves, as we do to the voice and utterance of ourselves? I’m interested in how the portrait, the image, and the idol creates identity. And how we mirror that visual identity, and further on how we internalize that image and use it as an internal production of the self. These pictures were shot in the latter part of 2020 in Berlin, why it is even more special to me, having them exhibited here for the very first time. Together with Anna Petrova, I’ll be performing a script on the opening day named Resort. It was written summer 2021. One can hear a recorded version of it, solely performed by me, on a tape recorder in the gallery. Remember to change to tape B when tape A runs out. The script deals with identity and memory, how the slightest movement in our conception of ourselves, as for example in an incident of a disease, can dissolve the identity with which we face others and our environment, as well as our internal conception of the self.
Thanks a lot to Igor Zaidel for making this exhibition possible. Thanks to my friends in Paris for sharing ideas and thoughts.
