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.

For the third time, Max Gadow and Sven Björn Popp of virtuellestheater invite you to take part in VÖLUSPÁ LOCATION ANALYSIS.
 
Based on the cosmogenic opening part of the Edda (the famous Norse book of myths), their nomadic performance installation investigates the atmosphere and the potential of selected locations. After analysing Ballhaus Ost in Berlin and the Hallo-Festspiele in Hamburg in 2016, they now continue with Kunsthaus ACUD. Joining forces with London based artist Elizabeth Prentis, whose practice explores sculpture and performance. They will transform the ACUD gallery into their new temporary camping site. Here they will collect, discuss, sing, read, build, destroy, eat and dance in the space.
 
Together with a variety of guests, they will inspect the past and present, to try and cast an optimistic glance into the future. // More Info
