Forgotten to talk - group exhibition
forget how to talk - forget to talk – talk - forgotten how to talk - forgotten to talk
At the end of a narrowing tunnel a surface of 400 m² will be turned into four wall paintings by:
Fabian Herkenhoener, Judith Kisner, Lydia Balke and Paul Czerlitzki; attended with traces of Melle de Boer
This exhibition focuses on the presence and absence of the Painter a Persona, whose activity has an existential to manic dimension, that also always impends to become a state of aporia at the same time. Here, painting is not negotiated as a medium but as an indigenous form of existence.
Just as a verbal language struggles for words, stutters, becomes repetitive and inconsistent or is stuck in interference, the conditions of a narrative of painting will emerge.
Graphic Design:
Medeina Musteikyte and Dirk Verweij
Tunnel Building:
After Howl
Supported by:
Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Karl H·Ditze Stiftung, The Fine Art Collective, HFBK Hamburg, het Mondriaan Fonds and AFK
