until 22.10. | #3630ARTatBerlin | Galerie Société  presents from 16. September 2022 (Vernissage: 15.09.) the exhibition “Ogress” by the artist Marianna Simnett.

The ogress is a shape-shifter. A devourer. She entices, lures, and captures. In fairy tales and folklore, the ogress is a voracious monster who deceives men and torments children in her quest to ravish them whole. Marianna Simnett wields the ogress’ insatiable hunger as a radical force that allows for a porosity with other beings and technologies. Simnett’s video, sound, watercolor, and sculptural works intertwine personal and mythological worlds to delve into our innate drive towards collection and collectivity. OGRESS revels in the mutual metamorphosis that occurs through our psychologically charged attachment to the objects we possess—and which in turn possess us.

Marianna Simnett (b. 1986) lives and works in Berlin. Simnett’s film installation The Severed Tail is included in the 59th Venice Biennale: The Milk of Dreams, and her work Prayers for Roadkill is currently exhibited in Espressioni: The Epilogue, Castello di Rivoli, Turin, and was shown at the 52nd edition of Art Basel. Simnett’s work has been exhibited internationally in solo exhibitions at venues including Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem; Kunsthalle Zürich; MMK, Frankfurt; and the New Museum, New York.

Vernissage: Thursday, 15 September 2022, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Exhibition dates: Friday, 16. September until Saturday, 22. October 2022.  

Event: Thursday, 6. October 2022, 6-8 pm, POSSESS – ATTENTION, postponed until further notice
