While Mother Earth is busy sustaining global interdependencies, human and non-human bodies similarly strive to perform resilience. Microalgae or plants produce saturated dyes as a protection against heat. Human bodies join forces to stop the past from repeating itself. The duo exhibition Pale Burnt Lake by artists Sina Hensel and Hannah Mevis draws attention to current states and signals of bodily perception in human and non-human life forms. Whereas for Sina the lens of colour is a means to grasp new pathological vulnerabilities such as thermophobia (fear or intolerance to heat) or heliophobia (fear or intolerance to solar radiation), Hannah focuses on the exhaustion of sculptures and how they represent the marginalization of the female. The exhibition translates these phenomena and body states beyond language - starting from the senses and for the senses - to shape a topology of human and non-human perception.
Within the exhibition context, Sina and Hannah will host events to talk about their work through the perception of one or several of our five senses. Dates: September 18th and October 9th. More info will be shared throughout the exhibition process.
