NebenanSicht … das Leben an sich (LndB / Art Week Berlin)

silentpoems13 Fotokünstler erzählen ihre Geschichten. Sie berichten von alltäglichen Schatten und vom Licht. Von launigen Erinnerungen. Von der Poetik der Abnutzung. Von zwischenmenschlicher Nähe und urbaner Anonymität. Oder einfach von der Ökonomie der Sexualität.

Bildinhalt und Mentalität prallen aufeinander und erzeugen so einen eigenartigen Resonanzraum.

Künstler: Eva Brunner, Michele Caliari, Marion Elias, Camilla Elle, Jeroen Goulooze, Stefanie Hoevermann, Susanne Leibold, Ann Lofy, Lutz Matschke, Stephanie Neumann, Oliver Parzer, Christian Reister, Vera Ruettimann, Irina Tübbecke.

I:I:I:I –  featuring Tristan Davies, Nikki Lam, Kimberley Liddle and Oliver Parzer explores the internal and external duration of self, its translucent nature as well as its complexity in relations to our surroundings.

A series of site specific projects, I:I:I:I allows the viewer to interactively delve into each of the artists minds, and interpretations of one’s self.  Oliver Parzer posits that ‘I’ can only be found if you are willing to taking the steps to embrace the inherent solitude of human experience. Nikki Lam views the identity of self as framed by the constitution of space, and such identity is realised only through vulnerability and change. Tristan Davies notions that the conception of self exists only in the past, found through nostalgic memories, and momentary thoughts. Kimberley Liddle explores the sense of self in the present. Stripping away all layers of the conscious mind and the external materiality of self, Liddle’s mixed media sculpture portrays the instantaneity of the subconscious. Does ‘I’ exist as asolid definable state, or is the idea of the self an illusion created by a constant flux of moments and events?

I:I:I:I takes us on a fascinating journey and challenges our own understanding of the concept of “self”, along with challenging the mainstream execution of mixed media projects.

Transmediale Resource 003: P2P Vorspiel

“The Pluto in me” is an exhibition that takes Transmediale 2013’s theme (Back when Pluto was a Planet) as inspiration to showcase selected self portraits made by Artconnect Berlin community to put into discussion the idea of self identity and self transformation. The exhibition is multi-media format which gives the artists freedom to express the different shifts in their vision about themselves and the world around them.
