Hats off @ Ashley Berlin, May 13 – May 26

, 13 May 2016

Kris Abdai is presenting the Hats off exhibition in collaboration with Matt Hill (aka Umberto) and Kineret Louri at Berlin’s Ashley, opening May 13 and running to May 26.

Closing their Winter 2016 Residency Program, the gallery will be transformed into a theatre consisting of two cinemas that operate as a stage. Live scenes will be presented throughout the exhibition featuring a film in each room: ‘Don’t Look at Me’ directed by Abdai and scored by Hill and ‘Enjoy Your Voice!’ directed by Kineret Louri.

Berlin-based artist Abdai works across time-based media, including sound video and performance with particular focus on “the face and the close-up”. Hill’s Umberto project is based in Los Angeles, releasing music on labels like Not Not Fun, Death Waltz Originals, and Permanent Records, while Louri is a London-based Israeli artist working with collage, moving image, sound and drawing.
