Tresholds. Limits of Space

BNKR.space
Ungererstrasse 158
80805 München

Opening: September 13 - 7pm
Exhibition: Sep 14 - Dec 9

The upcoming exhibition cycle, conceived by Berlin-based curator Lukas Feireiss, starts with the group exhibition Thresholds. Limits of Space. Based on Bruce Nauman’s seminal work Body Pressure (1974) which provides a set of typed out instructions for merging their bodies with an architectural surface, the exhibition explores the corporal-spatial unit of critically experiencing space through the works of different generations of artists. In her ingenious single channel video performance entitled Little Frank and His Carp (2001), the American artist Andrea Fraser is for example seen walking around the atrium of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao listening to the institution’s official audio guide, which culminates in an almost erotic encounter between the artist and the architecture. In a newly conceived site-specific work Korean-artist Jeewi Lee makes the invisible visible in the exhibition space, whilst German artist duo Wermke/Leinkauf investigate the surmounting of architectures in Berlin’s former border area in a mixed-media installation and Berlin-based artist Raul Walch transforms city hydrants in the surrounding urban environment into ephemeral fountains.

Artists: Bruce Nauman, Andrea Fraser, Jeewi Lee, Raul Walch, Wermke/Leinkauf
