April 26 to May 6, 2018
At Display, Berlin
Open during Berlin Gallery Weekend
ALL WAYS FOR EVER
NOTHING WILL AND
A room. A sky. An open space. Technology and suddenly a journey. Start travelling, all the while staying still. With the small brother which some call death. In your room, a lucid scene, back and forth, in-between. A state, vulnerable, that light disturbances would make blow up. Fluxes and gazes intermitted by the appearance of an autonomous setup. From a lucid state to ephemeral evanescent fadings, back and forth. Remember.
MYLASHER and PPH, as guardians of the visual memory transcribe the visions while combining their two practices for this exhibition in DISPLAY, into a quiet performance and installation. An intermediate.
pph (Paul Philipp Heinze) is a Berlin-based post-conceptual artist working across many disciplines including installation, sculpture, performance, video, sound and software. His work explores topics such as “identity construction”, “post-humanism” and “cognitive capital” and has been featured in numerous international exhibitions (e.g. in Amsterdam, Athens, Basel, Chicago, Copenhagen, Istanbul, London, Moscow, NYC, Pristina, Riga, Vienna, Warsaw…). Born in the nineteen eighties in Leipzig, Germany, pph credits the substantial transition of the political – this the complete turnaround of belief systems and transformation of value concepts as a crucial influence on his expanded and philosophical artistic practice. pph describes his work as sculptural (bildhauerisch) in the broadest sense, while also emphasizing the “sensual qualities “of concepts, www.pph.pm.
“Behind the screens of our smartphones, we observe the entire world but still cannot experience it Tine Günther aka Mylasher allows for trance-like states and uncontrolled processes. She uses shaving cream, pudding, mosses, foils or earth and with anarchic freedom of expression seeks “aura” in the garbage and in what is washed ashore, in nature as well as in the universe of the digital cold. She assumes the role of a pseudo-shaman and stirs and splashes, until primordial soup arises again. In this way, she overcomes the rigid stare onto the display, penetrates the cool surface and needs back to sensuality and meaning.” (Susanne Burmester, Circus Eins), www.tineguenther.com.
