D665 presented two exhibitions 89 Vorhänge at Frankfurt’s fffriedrich which ran October 28 to November 24, 2017 and Preshowritual at Offenbach’s Station on October 21, 2017.
Curated by Hendrike Nagel, the artist collective D665 (Maria Anisimowa, Magali Laurent, Emilia Neumann, Lutz Pillong, Sven Prothmann, Dennis Siering and Malte Zenses) explore circular narratives across two spaces. A show that puts the lens back onto itself, the work seeks to stage a moment, conserve it and ultimately ask “do I always have to say something?”
The press release ruminates on the process of showing and performing, where spectator and visitor are not separated and the space/stage holds as much importance as the ritual it houses, leaving us with the question, “What happens if the curtain itself finds its own spectacular character?”**
