Tiril Hasselknippe presented solo exhibition Queens of the Tear Duct at Cologne’s DREI which opened April 27 and was extended to June 10.
Hasselknippes’ installation brings together sound with a large sculptural intervention made of concrete and epoxy resin that runs through the space, “unfolding a dystopic scenario of broken structures.”
The work is also framed by an accompanying text that quotes and misquotes authors such as J.G. Ballard, Hans Blumenberg and the New-York-based artist herself among many others, with an excerpt such reading, “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.”**
