Hannah Perry – A Smashed Window and an Empty Room

A Smashed Window and an Empty Room deals with the impact of trauma on mental and emotional health as well as conditions and consequences of human interactions. With the large-format, pulsating sculpture Rage Fluids and the 360° film GUSH (both 2018), Perry reflects on coming to terms with grief, pain and loss. A newly produced hydraulic sculpture evokes moments of tenderness, intimacy and, violence through a mechanized dance with itself. Hannah Perry’s visual language utilizes coded and gendered industrial materials which reflect on the landscape and demographics that shaped her upbringing in the North of England.

Hamburg: TRIENNIAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2018

KUNSTVEREIN HAMBURG
TRIENNIAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY: BREAKING POINT
CALLA HENKEL / MAX PITEGOFF: SHIFT

Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff (* 1988 in Minneapolis, * 1987 in Buffalo, live and work in Berlin) show photo portraits of actors, artists, writers, musicians and performers in a context that deliberately allows changes to the compositions. Her photographic practice draws on performance, theater and the production of social spaces, such as in the New Theater or in the Green Salon of the Volksbühne Berlin.
The detachment of place and purpose of the persons depicted produces a kind of cast list of a self-administered sitcom of former lovers, friends and people from long-forgotten jobs and foggy weekends. The artists lead us to the point, that we have no idea who (or what) will ultimately collect our images for us, e.g. processed and grouped in the new media of Facebook & Co. In the tradition of conceptual artist Heinz-Günter Mebusch, the artists draw attention to the double nature of the portrait.

Kunstverein Hamburg, June 8 – September 9, 2018

STAGING REALITIES: PERFORMANCES

Nicola Gördes & Stella Rossié / THUG LIFE

The performance THUG LIFE deals with the myth of the alleged murder of rapper icon 2Pac.
The two artists born in 1986 and 1989 take up the memory culture of this legend and translate it into an artistic performance.

Cross over Performance mit Adam Christensen

Christensen, born in 1979, is dealing with different media (video, performance, language and music). In his current performance he try to interweave biographical and theatrical elements that, in conjunction with the audience, blur the line between the artist and the viewer.
