IMMATERIAL AT EMMA
For the presentation of „immaterial“ we developed an exhibition
concept that featured the virtual tour of the installation from the swimming hall but also extended
the constellations of fragments into yet another context. Alongside, the exhibition presented
contextualising video works that gave insight into the events and encounters at the former garden
spot in its last days.

THE RING CONSTELLATIONS
Constellations of fragments, forming itself out of the
substance of memory and exchange, and dissolving back into it. The tactile process of
sorting the fragments, for us, was a very essential part to grasp the information contained
in the material. Through the installation the visitors became part of a continuous sorting
process. An evolving exchange between the material memory, the visitors and other visitors,
that took part in the process.
The vacancy on the site had been used as shelter by many for several
months. LA LUCRU gives insight into an encounter that does not stop at the failure of
speech. The people in whose reality we get a glimpse of in the short documentary, show
incredible hospitality in the precarious circumstances of the last days before the
demolition of their home. The, at times hermetic at other times poetic, images focus on
these shared and very honest moments of human warmth in the face of uncertainty.
As one day friends from the ballet came by to visit the
exhibition and they immediatley approached the ring installation with a lot of sensibilty
and interest, the visit turned into a collaboration very organically. For the closing of the
exhibition we invited them to use the ring installation as a frame for a performance. A
continutation of the forming and unforming and a final exchange between the material, the
dancers and the visitors who took part in hanging and moving the fragments.
