until 30.06. | #2067ARTatBerlin | Laura Mars Gallery currently shows the exhibition “EROL” by the artist Tina Born.
EROL, the third solo exhibition by Tina Born in the Laura Mars Gallery, is a space-related installation that runs through the gallery space.
Based on so-called stick maps, three-dimensional constructions, which were formerly used on the islands of the South Pacific as a navigation aid and reminder, the artist also installs a kind of connection, associative memory and recording system, which pervades the gallery space.
For example, in Polynesian stick charts with shells, stones, snail shells and the like, special fixed points have been marked within the rod construction. Here, different objects are integrated as points of reference or accents into a compound system drawn three-dimensionally into the space and following the architecture of the gallery spaces.
Along the built lines / bars, the visitor encounters, among other things, a horse, time, a book island and the Greek god Tithonos, who was unable to die, shrank more and more and finally turned into a cicada.
These encounters occur in chronological order, similar to a sequence of words that make up a sentence. This sentence could be:
The black horse EROL draws the time, the time before and after, and those we have not (anymore), leading us to an island that bears witness to our hidden yearnings and phantasms, our exploration, incorporation and destructive urges to what is progressively disappearing or already lost.
