KÖRPER (06.03.-27.03.20)

Was macht einen Körper aus? Muss er in Relation zu etwas stehen um wahrgenommen zu werden oder reicht der Bezug zu sich selbst? Wann lösen sich Körper auf? Wann bilden einzelne Körper zusammen etwas Neues? Wir stellen vom 6.3.2020 bis voraussichtlich 27.3.2020 Werke von Kunstschaffenden in einer experimentellen, offenen Ausstellung aus.
Die eingereichten Werke beschäftigen sich mit dem KÖRPER als Medium und der Interaktion von Körperbildern sowie Körperlichkeit, sowie dem Körper als veränderlicher und verändernder Faktor im Raum. 

Aufgrund der COVID-19 Epidemie mussten wir unsere Ausstellung leider vorzeitig schließen. Um sie dennoch zugänglich zu machen, könnt ihr die Werke nun hier digital betrachten!
Bei Nachfragen oder Kaufinteresse meldet euch gerne bei ausstellung(at)ori-berlin.de.

The black eye, Magdalena Parfieniuk
Oil on canvas
We spend our lifetime in a box called body. We decorate it, waste it,
sacrifice for dump reasons. The matter that is yet truly a mystery is the
inside. What is it? Is it just a bunch of chemical reactions or is it more?
What drives us, what defines us – the body or the mind?

edgeedge, Reza Kianpour
Video, 2,22 minutes
This work tends to question, in a humorous way, the idea we have of a body
and its boundaries. As we are identified with our own body, do we lose a
part of „ourselves“ when we shave, cut our hair, nails…
If the body is not our entire being we call „self“, what else composes our existence?

Plastic skin, Simone Karl
Aluminium, plastic, sextoys
The work denounces the missing intimacy of our time, which makes us seek
for the plastic skin of mass produced products rather than real human
beings. And don’t we produce enough plastic waste anyways?
The work shows the post-capitalistic face of sextoys and our notorious need
to wrap everything in plastic.

Par Excellence, Jana Smetania
How shall we women accept our bodies if the artistic representation of the
vagina is still a taboo? A vagina, is society is an object that sets both desire
and horror. In art it is not even represented at all. We have to destigmatize
the vagina and feel no fear, no shame. The artworks are part of the project
,,Body’’ which started in 2017 and is based on research into how the
standards of women’s beauty has been changing in the modern world and
the reaction of society to those changes.

The clit is lit, Stella Meris
The large format artwork shows a direct connection to the artist’s body.
A wide range of visual techniques captures Meris‘ silhouette on a large
format paper. Markers and spray outline the body’s spatiality and are used
next to other materials like neon colors, oil pastels and egg tempera which
visualize the vitality of the body and elements surrounding it. The painting
begins to tell its own story, like any body interfering with the outside world.

Testtiere, Luka Naujoks
Acryl on C-print
What happens if two or more bodies clash? The artwork creates a new body
out of multiple body parts and dissolves thereby the fixed borders within
we perform our body images.

The body of Christ, Lorenzo Papanti
videoWe live in the digital age but how can we display emotions through
data? The archetypal form of the body of the Crucifixion incarnates human
pain. We can see the numerical evaluation going into research within the
body, representing pain as a result of an algorithmic calculation which is
displayed through the body.

Transzendenz, Clara Westendorff
acrylglas, video, permanent marker, glass colors
,,Wieder und wieder habe ich gesprochen und wurde nicht gehört. Wieder und
wieder hat man durch mich hindurchgeschaut.’’ (Damals, Siri Hustvedt)
The work shall animate to think about the transcendence of the female
body through outlining the archetypical female shape which is covered
with narrative from the outside.

Book of Genesis
,,Good created human in Her image, in the divine image She created her, female and male She

created them.“

The first human encounters the new world. In the meagre surrounding Eva experiences an

unknown state of boredom. She calls God.

Book of Genesis 2:22
Then God made a man from the rib taken out of the woman, and she brought him to the woman.

Book of Genesis 2:50
The woman and her man were both naked and the felt no shame.

The alternative interpretation is based on Christian beliefs. The author and artist disassociates

herself from the contents of Christianity and its restrictive binary view of human kind.

The Incarnation, Sonja Sartys
Have a close look at a fresh interpretation of the history of human beings.
The alternate genesis – which is shown in a trinity of analog photographs –
scrutinizes the impact of christianity on the modern society.
