Detoxing after Armageddon for Alex Heilbron’s Scent Description for a Young Woman at Ashley Berlin, Apr 27 – May 20

, 26 April 2017

Alex Heilbron is presenting Scent Description for a Young Woman at Ashley Berlin, opening April 27 and running to May 20.

The press release includes a text describing the textured and tangible world around us in microscopic detail by Jenny Gagalka:

“…and a feedback loop. A suite of fans oscillates. Airborne liquid solidifies. Paint dries.
A fruity floral scent, the smallest particles, pigments, spread with hair onto all-natural fibers wrapped around a wooden support. Then I fill the tub halfway, then riding with my surfboard, surfboard, surfboard, graining on that wood, graining, graining on that wood. A misunderstanding.”

On April 30 and part of the Studio Sunday series, Heilbron will also hold a reading called ‘The End of the World, Detoxification and Farming in the 17th Century Competence+ Quality = safety’ with Klara KayserTaking the form of notes, poems and found texts, the pair will “attempt to draw correlations between detoxification, harvesting in the 17th century, and the imminent Armageddon.”

See the Ashley Berlin website for details.**
