August’s curator and exhibition statement

August And Everything After.

It’s summertime. We are on holidays, hanging out on the beach, by the lake or in a cozy bathtub. Finally, we have some time and space for ourselves to ponder about what passed and what will happen after the summer.

The works of the exhibition create private immersive moments and reflect on personal lives and social states of being. Bianca Kennedy, Faith Holland and Tamiko Thiel speculate on what it could mean to share private spaces, on intimately caring about digital devices and on adapting to new conditions of our surroundings.

Now, I grab my kitschy watermelon air mattress to float on the calm sea. I bask in the warmth and the sun sets in a beautiful pink glow. I listen to the Counting Crows and think about love and loneliness, friendship and meaningfulness, about believing. About yesterday and tomorrow. See you in September.

The exhibition is curated by Tina Sauerlaender
