GUTS
about
×
GUTS is 153 meters of white floor-to-ceiling curtains and the space they enclose. GUTS is also what transpires in this space: a program of art exhibitions, readings, and performances. The soft walls diffuse light, dampen sound, and require creative hanging. They are temporary and transient, deployed only when needed and portable by suitcase. When unfurled, GUTS becomes a site of political and aesthetic digestion. To take digestion as the guiding principle for an exhibition space is to acknowledge that it takes time to process art and that making or consuming art is not always productive. Taste may determine what enters the digestive system, but the gut is responsible for sorting nutrients from waste. This task is imperfect and never-ending but it provides sustenance. GUTS invites viewers to ruminate and strives to offer energy for future exercise.

Liking the Same Thing

04-12 of Mai 2024

What makes me so skeptical about the line? The inflated discrepancy between the
canonized myth and the absent doodle? From both narratives, gestures can be
derived that only serve as a reference.
The pillars keep their promise. There is now so much distance in the room that
nothing can be verified, and everything can be relativized. No roller smoothes as well as a proper exposure to the light beam. This distance is necessary to see better. Some gestures curve their surroundings so gently, that only the line stands out – everything else is ponderous or labored. And yes, the environment reacts to even the smallest interventions. A well-tested strategy is the use of noise to normalize the noise. The core does not disappear though. More diffuse at first,
it rears up against, but it becomes risky when it immerses itself in the
underground. To avoid this, winding ropes of reality are fixed to frame it on a coloured background. Some claim that there is only one original! It prefers to stay at home: Cuddle by candlelight, variations in familiar interiority, liking the same thing, caresses in a gentle swell and the same wavelength.
In contrast
we trust.
