The Chinese Seismic Investigations present Emily Jones and Nina Wiesnagrotzki joint exhibition is on at the temporary Berlin space, opening February 11 and running to March 4.
Alongside new work by Jones and Wiesnagrotzki is a text written by fellow artist Holly White who also performed a reading on the night of the opening.
“A fox had died in the bushes on the side of the motorway. We had to walk up the hard shoulder 3 times that week and the smell got worse each time. But eventually it didn’t smell anymore. We remembered when people lived here and talked about cities we could move to. Later we walked through the village and found a button that, when you pressed it, played recordings of people applauding.” – excerpt from Holly White’s, Green Flash (2016).
The installation consisted of sculptural interventions by both artists, as well as a film by Wiesnagrotzki shown below. Chinese Seismic Investigations examines “earthcult, human-technology-nature-counter-realities, and alternative body languages of history, science and politics as unstable utopias of the future.”**
The Chinese Seismic Investigations present Emily Jones and Nina Wiesnagrotzki exhibition is running from February 11 to March 4, 2017.
