Tiril Hasselknippe is presenting solo exhibition Queens of the Tear Duct at Cologne’s DREI, opening April 26 and running to June 3.
Leaving us with some anticipation, the press release does not provide any details about the show, a part from a piece of text that is described to be quoting and misquoting authors such as J.G. Ballard, Hans Blumenberg and the New-York-based artist herself among many others, with an excerpt such as:
„the world is beginning to flower into wounds. That road over there, it used to carry me to my lover, now it’s going nowhere. Sad“. “I remember driving so fast, I had the impression that all the cars on the highway were stationary, the spinning earth racing beneath them to create an illusion of movement”, one of them said. „There are no accidents, only nature throwing her weight around“
This is Hasselknippe’s second solo show with DREI and also takes place at the beginning of Art Cologne 2017, which runs April 26 to 29. There will be both a breakfast preview and an opening reception in the evening.
