SARAH WESTPHAL

→ everything has remained untouched as
a sleeping still life waiting to get awakened

During her residency at CAAK, Center for Art & Architecture in Kanazawa (JP) 2016, Sarah Westphal has departed from traces found in a house from 1931. The house is abandoned since the former o→wner died. Everything has remained untouched as a sleeping still life waiting to get awakened…
The gathered images Westphal made for her solo exhibition touch upon the Japanese expression Reading The Air - kuuki wo yomu - which is translated as „reading an atmosphere“. It points out things between the visible and invisible, what cannot be said but can be sensed when you listen carefully. And this is what the artist did during her stay in Japan; reading the air, listening to its sound and measuring its weight.

Opening:

September 10 at 2pm.
