    ACUD gallery presents No Man’s Land, the first solo-exhibition in Berlin by Feminist Land Art Retreat (FLAR). FLAR has created a series of new works which use a symbolic language of equestrianism to explore questions of frontiers, power structures, and materiality. The show centers around a video, also entitled No Man’s Land, which subverts the hierarchy of agency between horse, man, and land in the western genre. The concept of “no man’s land” is versatile: it can be read as a wasteland, or as a politically-contested liminal area between two forces. Combining land art with science fiction, FLAR embraces a playful reading. This no man’s land is not only void of men, it is also a terrain so alien that it verges on a dystopic, futuristic vision, perhaps beyond our own planet. Shot on a ranch outside of Berlin, the video depicts the preparation for an unknown journey carried out by Gina, a sentient presence inhabiting the horse, rider, landscape, and relationships between each entity.
     
    Feminist Land Art Retreat was born in 2010 with a poster on the wall of Exercise Projects in Vancouver, depicting mirrored images of Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty. Transforming this seminal work of land art into something resembling fallopian tubes, it invited the viewer to a fantasy event. This began FLAR’s conceptual and humorous subversion of familiar visual forms, including fashion, spa advertising, commemorative architecture, and aerial imagery. FLAR has continued appropriating commercial and art-historical images with irony, challenging commonly held notions of how feminism is embodied and expressed.
     
    Feminist Land Art Retreat has recently exhibited at: Ginerva Gambino, Cologne; Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover; Kunsthaus Bregenz Billboards, Bregenz; Oslo 10, Basel; Studio For Propositional Cinema, Düsseldorf; JTT Gallery, New York.

    THE BURNING HELL [BB SLAND/Can]
    … is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. This means both that no two Burning Hell records sound alike, and that the band can adapt to its surroundings like a karma of anthropomorphic chameleons, taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.
     
    In 2017, The Burning Hell has morphed into a trio, and are all set to record and release their eighth full-length album, embarking on a tour that will take them from the Rocky Mountains to the Mountains of Mourne, across the Tyrrhenian and the Norwegian Seas, and many other places in between. Always restless, The Burning Hell looks forward to a year of new sounds, new songs, and new people to share them with.
