4.5 — 18.6.2023
part of Neubau Tropeninstitut hosted by Hotel Simplon at Rhythmus Messy Cambio
For this presentation with Faltpavillon, Anastasia filmed a large selection of drawings and sketches with a handheld VHS camera. The resulting slideshow reveals a thought about fixing some thing or feeling or idea with direct and efficient means – perhaps the intention of drawing itself. The cadence of images gives you a moment to grasp what you are looking at before the next takes its place, and, where no clear narrative reveals itself, the same kind of curiosity or impression emerges that might inspire a drawing in the first place.
The work was shown inside a tower constructed of two tents, our collective contribution to Neubau Tropeninstitut an exhibition at Rhythmus Messy Cambio created by Hotel Simplon. Hotel Simplon is a collective consisting solely of Jacob Ott, which functions somewhat like Faltpavillon, but has no vessel at all, attaching itself to various ideas and groups, hosting and being hosted by them.
