Nile Koetting “Hard In Organics”
This event has ended.
Koetting is an emerging artist who works actively and freely across genres of video, installation, sound art and performance with much interest in “sensing”. In this exhibition the artist will present a new video, as well as an installation consisting works made of piezoelectric elements, piezo films, and crystal among others. The new 20 minute video Deep Signals is largely inspired by the idea of “body as clothing” from Perniola’s The Sex appeal of the Inorganic, and captures 6 women exploring their own bodies through actions like physical exercises, rituals, make-up and tattooing. They play a role of Kannagi (sorcerer) to mediate human and non-human, and the world and the external world, transforming a former DDR radio station building into a theatrical space. Terms as “Aerobics” and “Make-up” from actions in the video will be laser-engraved on cowhide and exhibited in the installation.
