Joseph Craig presented solo exhibition HomeisWherethe Hearthis at Berlin’s Centrum, which opened April 8 and ran to April 23.
The London-based artist works across a variety of media to explore “the various taboos which manifest once an individual finds themselves in a space where their body feels alien” by re-assembling objects and materials and probing his own childhood to dissect his identity.
Using both installation and text, the exhibition becomes a type of fairytale that centres around the fireplace and its connection to tradition, history and ‘obscure outliers.’ The objects and appropriated materials are ‘shaped and supported’ by the text/ script, which evolved into a live re-enactment on the closing night.
The publication launch on April 23 was host to readings by the artist, as well as actors Sebastian Rein and Anna-Maria Hadorn, and performance artist Inês Miguel.**
