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.

Perlas para Lágrimas – will be the debut Berlin appearance and full showcase of the Perth Records / artists, a night of emotionally daring sounds, strange and beautiful visuals.
All the way from Spain, the shape shifter woman Maria Forqué will open the night as a holographic DJ covered in diamonds. Followed up by London’s experimental artist Yegua, his trademark sonar landscapes will create a mood for dancing till the morning for the rabid industrial reggaeton of Merca Bae, perth Daijing’s experimental raves. We are closing the night with an intense hardcore session by artist/designer duo Fecal Matter.
