OPEN STUDIOS December 2018

GlogauAIR Residents

On the 14th and 15th of December 2018, twelve of GlogauAIR’s resident artists coming from three continents spanning USA, Europe, China, and Japan will offer Berlin the chance to peek inside their studios and see all new work, the results of their residency projects completed here at GlogauAIR. The Project Space is also activated to create a dialogue between work created by GlogauAIR resident artists Gregory Kappes and Ainhoa Salas and invited Berlin-based performance artist Evgenia Chetvertkova and the location-independent Keiken Collective.

Gamification, a concept that describes the way that our interaction with technology shapes and colors our perception of everyday life guides the interaction between artists and artworks in the project space exhibition. Work by Ainhoa Salas takes the hyperactive motion that captures our attention on the internet and manifests them in our real life. Greg Kappes investigates the psychological implications of technology and the effects of manipulation and coercion but also a nostalgic look back at our collective childhoods filled with gadgets as digital natives. Berlin/London/Athens-based collective Keiken draws on their world-building theory to look at our consumption of technology and the ever-increasing indiscernibility between our virtual and embodied selves. Evgenia Chetvertkova, a recent graduate of the acclaimed SODA program for movement studies, develops a site-specific performance piece for GlogauAIR that blurs the lines between audience and performer.

Beginning on the first floor, Michael Reiley McDermott has created a sonic dreamspace called Echozoo. Jin Wang makes politically charged new video works that draw parallels between Germany´s past and China today. Work by Ainhoa Salas uses mesmerizing loops, fascination, and sensationalism to capture our attention. Yusuke Wakata has produced works that combine historical research with a meticulous process intended to alter fixed ideas that are derived from our unconscious. Zhiwan Cheung presents a series of multi-channel video works playing in synchrony.

Traveling upstairs to the second floor studios, Greg Kappes daringly combines water and electronics, normally a taboo, proposing a new way of viewing technology as part of our natural environment. With his new work, KopfsteinpflasterGuillermo Moreno Mirallas refers to and reinterprets the cobblestone streets, a ubiquitous element that creates our unconscious mental understanding of the city. Aaron Daem explores process with his open studio where, on a daily basis, he worked on an evaluation of the room where he worked, lived, and slept, and prolifically created. In Marijn Roos Lindgreen’s studio you will see aspects of the process that led to her creating Becoming Plastic for the garden. In newly produced work here in Berlin, Liu Jiahong explores the historical and rational city and observations of similarities to her home country of China.

Keep an eye out for works by Sara Agudo Millan, who makes site-specific interventions throughout the building as well as Wu Wei’s objects created from paper that are furry, seemingly alive and twisted into strange shapes captured in metal cages, wire, and chains.
