Framework 2: feel at home
Valentin Hertweck with Irene Pätzug and Frank Hauschildt
For »Framework 2: feel at home« insitu collective offered two artists the possibility to each make themselves feel at home for 10 days in their former exhibition space on Kurfürstenstr. Berlin. The decision on what to do with the space was up to them: insitu Berlin could be used as a studio, a meeting point, or as a laboratory.
»Framework 2: feel at home« is part of insitu collective's Cycle II, a series of exhibitions on the topic of ‘relationships, networks and connections' in which insitu collective established a series of formats or 'frameworks' for invited artists and curators to respond to.
Valentin Hertweck’s objects and interventions often rely on the reaction or movement of the audience. For »Framework 2: feel at home«, Hertweck presents the new work »Mobile« (2014) as well as two pieces he created in collaboration with Irene Pätzug and Frank Hauschildt.
Like a relational system in itself, the neon-mobile »Mobile« reacts to every subtle change in the exhibition space. One slight touch or a shift of air as visitors pass by, starts a floating chain reaction. Hertweck’s piece is constructed just on the edge of being small enough to not completely block the path of visitors, but slightly too large so that it forces visitors to shift their behaviour in the space.
Movement is used in a similar way for »Klappstuhl« (2014), developed in collaboration with artist Irene Pätzug. Here, a mechanical curtain system pulleys a wooden chair through the exhibition space. The chair changes position constantly, directed by the strings attached to the machine. The system not only directs objects through the space, but also visitors who must navigate around the object. With »(ohne Titel Prototyp)« (2012) Frank Hauschildt and Valentin Hertweck visualize a infinite dependency. In an imaginary sysphianean action two toothpastes are forced to refill each other in an endless loop.
Marinella Senatore, ESTMAN RADIO – 10 days free radio station
Marinella Senatore consciously avoids taking a decisive role in her projects. She merely attempts to find forms of representation for the processes that take place. In this sense, she avoids traditional notions of authorship and work, as well as established hierarchies between viewer, artwork and artist. According to the motto »the journey is the destination«, the process is very much the work in her approach to art. It is logical, therefore, that Senatore’s work can only be understood completely by participating in one of her projects, by changing one’s role from recipient to (co-)producer.
For insitu, Senatore brings the free podcast radio project ESTMAN RADIO to Berlin for its first time, after its launch at Kunsthalle St. Gallen. For ten days, everyone is invited to contribute with lectures, speeches, dramas, thoughts, recipes, songs or more to the radio station.
