Installation – Part IV
At the destination
Final spurt of the installation: Nicole Schuck arrived from Berlin, Cécile Hummel came all the way from Switzerland, Manaf Halbouni drove across the country from Dresden and a package by Anne Pöhlmann reached us from Düsseldorf.
The works of Nicole Schuck explore the native wild animals. Therefore she had an oyster shell in her luggage, which was put into an aquarium to observe the colonization of algae. She also spent the time to pursue the question “Does the Wurm originate in a traffic circle?” and to meet with scientists and experts on this field. She will tell about her findings during a walk on 03-21-2021.
Cécile Hummel’s photographs of the work cycle In der Mitte Mee(h)r take us on a visually impressive journey around the Mediterranean – and we are in the middle of it.
Manaf Halbouni drove his artwork Nowhere is Home, a fully loaded car, from Dresden to Aachen and placed it in the exhibition hall on Tuesday. He was accompanied by West ART and on his entire journey by Arndt Lorenz. The contribution to the exhibition will be broadcasted today at 6:15 pm and can be found afterwards in the WDR Mediathek.
Mareike Foecking also completed her extensive installation I am looking at Silicon Valley – Silicon Valley is looking at Me this week. In the video you can see the whole set up in 3 minutes. Music by Thomas Brinkmann – Walk with Me.
Art can travel in such a small and handy package: At the beginning of the week Anne Pöhlmann sent us a package with her work 2020, which deals with her (travel) experiences during the last lockdown.
At the end of the week, we put the finishing touches on the exhibition. The artworks were illuminated and our travel guide was sorted. We are looking forward to opening the exhibition soon and of course you’ll find further insights here.
