SubheadlineIn this group exhibition, the three artists Mirsini Artakianou, Michal Fuchs and Katharina Gahlert, with the help of curator Silvia Gaetti, unite their works into a new structure and expose them to mutual interaction.
Unstable Equilibrium is a concept from the field of kinematics and describes a state of equilibrium of a body that starts to tilt even with a minimal external impulse. Instability, transformation and movement are common themes and foci of the three artists Mirsini Artakianou, Michal Fuchs and Katharina Gahlert. Their works negotiate in different ways questions about changing identities, migration, inner and outer landscapes and the relationship between humans and nature in times of the Anthropocene. Confidently, they demand space, create large reference surfaces and fields of tension with each other and with the viewers. Materiality plays an important role: from thin thread to solid concrete - each of the selected raw materials is skillfully used and reflected. A quiet and slow dynamic and liveliness can be felt in the rooms: in several places something is dripping, burning and moving. Central themes such as touch and contact take on a whole new level of interpretation in times of a pandemic, as well as the protracted, repetitive and ritualized movements in the production process. These are visible in the foreground and they critically cite the perception of women* in the art world. The exhibition brings together the three artistic positions and sets them in relation to each other. In doing so, points of contact as well as contrasts are made visible. The exhibited works refer to microcosms as macrocosms: from growing roots to entire landscapes and extend spatially from floor to ceiling.
