(un-)homely entanglements by Carola Friess
In the intertwined realms of the familiar and unfamiliar, everyday objects serve as a starting point for Friess' artistic explorations. Tactile and filled with material presence, her work hovers on the threshold of damage and repair, protected and abandoned, familiarity and estrangement, inside and outside, attractive and repulsive. It is within this flux of opposing ideas that Friess endeavours to cultivate an awareness of the interdependent relationships and precariousness inherent in ideas, places, objects and subjectivities.
Home Affairs by Pamela Bentley
An exhibition focusing on movement, access and migration as well as the urgent need for a tolerant Pan-African society on this continent Exploring migration across land and sea, the show documents the movement of people through space in general - a social fabric and multi-sensory map of motion. Home Affairs seeks to document the relationships created through the project as both digital archive and artistic medium.
DOPPELGÄNGERS. FUTUREGÄNGERS. UBERGÄNGERS. by Stefan Carstens and Luke Carstens
We are constantly working to contextualize ourselves. We are looking - and listening - for the features that will help us discern something of ourselves in our surroundings. Is this the root of our Pareidolia? We see a form in the rocks, a figure in the clouds, a face in the plug socket - what are those creatures suggested by the arrangement of the stars?
