Followed by an After Party with KOW & Capitain Petzel:
And later, in an empty room, lying prostrate… a low thrum… a rising brume…
The two axes of language carries you along; an imaginary line about which a body rotates.
Merge one body into another, time functioning as a spindle.
When you hear the static crackling, you remember a distant ringing, a game of musical chairs, the shape of your mother’s body at dusk—or was it your father?
Traipse across overdetermined points until they cohere into a single vibrating position.
As you turn, you see yourself: shadow on surface. In a moment of revelation/identity, you recognize yourself in this external negation, your displacement as form.
Naama Arad (born 1985 in Israel) lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel. She has exhibited throughout Europe and America. This is her first solo exhibition in Germany. She received her Bachelors Degree in Visual Arts from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem in 2010, and a Masters from the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago in 2014.
