No natural disaster @ HORSEANDPONY, Nov 27 – Dec 18

25 November 2016

The No natural disaster group exhibition is on at Berlin’s HORSEANDPONY, opening November 27 and running to December 18.

Featuring Viktor Timofeev, Diana Artus, Caitlin Berrigan, Tamen Perez, Armita Raafat, and Clémence de La Tour du Pin, there is little information on the nature of the show, aside from a text excerpted from Berrigan’s experimental book Treatise on Imaginary Explosions, vol. 1 (Broken Dimache Press, forthcoming 2017).

Covering similar themes of power, politics and capitalism that inform her performance, video, sculpture, and textual practice, the piece describes a post-apocalyptic landscape, not dissimilar to the salinity-blighted ecological disaster area, once an aspiring resort town, of California’s Salton Sea:

“Postcards of a resort oasis show blue water,
bronzed bodies, white boats and yellow blossomed date palms.
Now full of metal and oxygen-eating microbes,
the sea’s fish thrown in for sport are suffocating”

An evening of readings and encounters @ HORSEANDPONY, Jun 29

28 June 2016

Berlin’s HORSEANDPONY will host an evening of readings and encounters on June 29.

In and amongst the work and solo show by Nick Jeffrey, Dream Divider curated by Carolina Ongaro of Jupiter Woods, several artists will read and be present for a chat in an informal event that rounds up the final week of Jeffrey’s exhibition.

Speaking will be writers and artists William KherbekBitsy KnoxWieland Rambke, Matilda Tjäder and Alex Turgeon.

Dream Divider, which captures Jeffrey’s practice by emphasising his observations of gaps and blank spaces as they are filled in, and his tendency towards filters, touches and additions seems like a fitting place to experience readings inside.
