I invited four artists to make a group show with me.
Holger Heissmeyer and I initiated the exhibition in the two rooms of the project space Spinner und Weber in Berlin. The artworks were interconnected through time and space.
a mural and two Tinder Frame Reading Plinths for my Zines about family, occupation, identity and the private sphere, all 2015.
Saori Kaneko and Richard Welz presented a part of their ongoing graduation project made by us, 2015. It is about the occurance of radioactivity in Germany, and the Ore Mountains.
Afra Eisma made a site-specific and temporary artwork called Residu, as well as a mural, both 2015.
Holger Heissmeyer installed his site-specific interactive artwork Das Unsichtbare Quadrat (The invisible square), 2015.
Holger and I were present on each date of the exhibition. He commented on the invisible square from out of a DJ booth and I narrated the experience of the exhibition to the visitors using my person and the official exhibition zine . We 'turned on' the exhibition only for the inclined visitor. We turned on the film projector for the fluorescent painting by Saori, Holger's sound and laser system and when somebody inquired I unlocked the door to Afra's and mine room, and handed out the exhibition zine along with a matchbox.
For me it was important to stay in contact with each other and develop the works individually, but influnced by each other's perspective. I and Afra were in contact from the initial idea to the finished work on the floor of the space and her ideas influenced my work on the Zines. The same with Holger's work. To mark the visual continuation from one room to the next I painted the wall in Room 2 and made a plinth for Saori's and Richard's work that was presented in a larger iteration in a gallery in Weimar.
