My first show in Berlin, SCHMUTZENGEL (Trash Angel). This was also my first international show. It was a one-off performance with @faustianfraulein and Christoph Hahn from Swans with sculptural pieces I fabricated. It was about cell death as an embodiment of societal collapse. At the centre of the work were residual fragments, units generated by the recovery and aggregation of forms and materials that reveal the wear of time. The sculpture resembled an ancient star map, or a human nervous system. I wanted the work to be caught in a perpetual ritual of cannibalising itself.
Christoph called the show a ‘hit and run’. I liked that. .
Big thanks to all involved, and all who came to see it. . 📸 @gavrielmaynard
