For THE PARK the point of departure is Michelangelo Antonioni’s seminal film BLOW UP from 1966, with its photographer protagonist and underlying questions of what constitutes truth and reality. In the film it is the park where the photographer chances upon a couple of which he takes photos initially on the sly, where he via photography discovers a potential murder and where in the end he can hear the sound of an absent tennis ball.
In 2016, 50 years after the film was released, I visited Maryon Park in Greenwich, London, where the film was shot. My question was very open ended. What would I find there? Would there be some resonance to the world of the film? Can you find some traces to reconstruct a memory (effectively of something that has never happened)? Some answers, and some further questions can be found in the pieces that are brought together in the space of this exhibition. The photos, texts and objects invite the visitor to enter a game of speculation, somewhere between fiction, history and reality, somewhere between the specific and the general.
Effectively, the hope is that, as in the film, the park can be seen as a scene of challenge but also the scene of free play, the playground for imagination.
THE PARK is part of READINGS, an ongoing project, in which I take cues from literature, cinema or history to visit the corresponding contemporary real world settings. These visits then form the basis for a new work developed from the spirit found on location in dialogue with the original work. This inter-textual project looks at questions of collective and individual memory, imagination and longings and currently relates them to a quest to re-imagine and contextualise romanticism (and Europe).

Lines on paper, in space, on photos or on screens, inner lines and outlines, constructivist, suprematist, minimalist, thick or thin, in the grid or gestural, connecting or dividing: Trace a line.
And because according to Klee a line is a dot that went for a walk each kind of dot may also join in.

Lightness and transience with Yuki Jungesblut and special guest Wolfram DER Spyra.
This evening sees the release of the long overdue artist book „Cloud Country“ by Yuki Jungesblut for YUKITV TOURIST RESEARCH BOOKS: Cloud Country documents exactly one journey (from Tokyo to Paris). And while observing landscapes of clouds and countries from the sky a sense of wonder and discovery in the albeit distant reencounter with this planet is found and cherished. The book will be accompanied by spontaneous intermissions by DER Spyra, whose newly released album „Staub“ will also be available this evening.

Identity, Borders and Transformation
with: Yuki Jungesblut, Rola Khayyat and Ahmed Zidan, Sharon Paz, Petra Spielhagen, Chryssa Tsampazi
curated by: Kerstin Karge and Sharon Paz
Travel, time zones, jet lag, departures. The disquiet of our globalised lives changes us. We have to stand our ground in constantly changing circumstances. What we have to do, where we have to go, what time we have to arrive — it is often our calendar that dictates all this. But where are we, who are we and what belongs to us? PERSONAL TERRITORIES is an exhibition by six international artists whose works pose questions of how we move — continually crossing borders, blurring time, meeting changing expectations. Photographs, videos, installations and performances prompt reflection on borders, borders as barriers, borders as portals to the unknown — and reflection on lack of boundaries. Physically bounded territories become readable as symbols, the effect of symbolic boundaries on the intimacy of the body. The artists move as travellers, experimenters, seekers of refuge, correspondents.
Performance: „I Got A Plan To Get Us Out Of Here“, Chryssa Tsampazi, 10 October 2014, 19h
Finissage: Lecture and discussion with Ingo Arend, catalog release event, 24 October 2014, 19h
