You asked me to post a few pictures from the exhibition and I would like to start with a picture of the Nebbiensches Gartenhaus, a neoclassical summer house located in a park in Frankfurt. This is the venue where you can still see views | interrupted, the exhibition by Sonja Ackermann, Christian Rocas and me.
But before I show you some more pictures, I would like to introduce you to the soundtrack that I recorded for the exhibition with my band mockART.
We – the visual artists involved in the project – all made a picture on the same themes. So we – mockART in this case – took the same themes and converted them into music for the exhibition. Two of the tracks I like to introduce to you here:
You can still get the album at the exhibition, but if you cannot attend, you can also buy it on Bandcamp as CD and download. You can also stream it on the most common streaming platforms, like Spotify or iTunes.
Now that you are in the mood musically, I will show you a few pictures I took on my mobile phone (therefore they are a bit on the low quality side. But let me assure you, that what you perceive as dirt really is a shadow!), right before the opening.
You probably remember some of the pictures, that I have already posted here. You can also see some of the paintings by Sonja Ackermann as well as some of the photographs taken by Christian Rocas.
You might wonder about the lines you see that connect the pictures with each other. As we really wanted our artworks to connect with each other, we decided to hang them in a way that they fit together as an ensemble. Therefore the pictures are not sorted by artist or theme. We created the grey line that goes around the room. From the grey line, coloured lines go straight up to the pictures and indicate the theme. We also selected traffic signs that were assigned to the themes as well as signs that indicate which artist created which one of the artworks.
We distributed cards (see above) with a table that indicates the meaning of the traffic signs and the colours. We also included the table as a poster in the exhibition and connected it to the grey line that goes around the room.
It may sound a bit complicated, but we noticed that the visitors are really having fun with the system. It allows them to explore the exhibition in different ways and experience it individually.
If you like to be part of that experience, you can still visit the exhibition. It is running till September, 18th.
