until 22.01. | #0876ARTatBerlin | Galerie im Körnerpark shows from 05th November 2016 the group exhibition “LINEAR MONUMENTUM” with works from the artists Simon Faithfull, April Gertler, Vanessa Henn, IEPE, Melanie Irwin, Pia Linz, plan b, p.t.t.red, Richard Rocholl und Sofie Thorsen Kuratiert von Conny Becker.
The exhibition LINEAR MOMENTUM addresses the drawn line in its relationship to our movement through space. Instead of approaching the theme through drawing, the genre traditionally associated with the line, the project incorporates performance-based works, as well as sculpture, wall drawing, photography, and video. As a connection between two points, the line always references its movement-based genesis. Thus, the exhibition approaches the line from a temporal and spatial – a performative – perspective.
In most of the works, the line appears as a visually prominent formal element, as in a bent banister or a stripe of moving light. In other works, the artists refer to existing utilitarian lines (the Berlin wall, overhead tram cables, the Greenwich Meridian), which themselves rest invisible, but determine our navigation in space and time.
