(Ultra High Performance Concrete) took place in the crypt of the catholic church St. Johannes XXIII in Cologne–a modernist style building of the 1960s. The event consisted of readings of several text formats such as the japanese poem Haiku by the authors Jonathan Lahr and Henrik Hillenbrand as well as three installations by Leonie Hosoda.
The works reflected the crypt as a place of secrecy and depth in opposition to the tangible and elusive e.g. of the haiku. The fabrics covered two religious pictures and the altar. The textiles created a play of revealing the sacral symbols as mere surfaces and at the same time transforming them into objects of speculation in concealing their shapes.
During the Art Event FAR OFF at Ebertplatz, Cologne we presented an installation concerning various branded identities of a possible motive “Far Off”. Three routes represented three representative target audiences that were interviewed on site and confronted with their matching consumer-product.
Installation materials: flip chart, digital prints, sticky notes
FAR OFF is a young platform for galleries, curators and art spaces to promote their artists to an international audience during the art fair season in mid April in Cologne, Germany. The event questions each year, how today’s art can be presented in its most appropriate form for reception.
