KERNEL + What We Name… @ Union Pacific, Feb 28 – Mar 28

26 February 2015

London gallery Union Pacific is launching Bridge, the latest exhibition from KERNEL, as well as projects with Sasha Litvintseva and Lewis Teague Wright titled What we name, we can contain, both running from February 28 to March 28.

In Bridge, the Athenian art collective (founded by architect Pegy Zali and artists Petros Moris and Theodoros Giannakis) takes a peripheral event as its source of inspiration, re-imagining a critical narrative on the modern movements of matter, people, and energy. Built as a reference to a new railway transport bridge in the suburbs of Athens that was mysteriously sabotaged, the exhibition takes the form of “millions of microscopic fragments of phosphor-coated lamb glass, deformed metal and wood chips are still lying within the tunnel, mixed with the gray crushed stone of the railway”.

For What we name, we can contain, Litvintseva and Wright provide only an abstract lengthy text referencing things like “lashing blood-infused spit”, “beacher mermaid”, and “the void”. The text ends with:

Tongue and beans in broth,

Brick in a box.

I won’t take no for an answer,

I was born to be a dancer.

What we name,

We can contain,

Out here hanging brain.

See the Bridge page and the What we name, we can contain press release for details. **

Enclosures (First Attempt) @ V4ULT, Dec 19 – Jan 8

12 December 2014

Collaborative platform KERNEL is hosting the Enclosures (First Attempt) exhibition at the newly opened Berlin V4ULT location, running from December 19 to January 8.

The Athens/London-based art, research and curating platform, founded by Pegy Zali, Petros Moris and Theodoros Giannakis, opens this new exhibition with an abstract text about light, darkness, wooden coils and metallic rails – “Each time that a beam hit the copper spiral, the warm light of the sharp reflections colored the crushed stone with which the ground of the tunnel was paved” – that gives away little else about the exhibition.

The location, however, is known, and taking place at V4ULT’s new Kiefholzstrasse location. Throughout the duration of the show, the curators are introducing two interventions, The first is Neïl Beloufa‘s 2011 film, titled ‘The Analyst, the researcher, the screenwriter, the CGI tech and the lawyer’ (2011) and takes place on December 19, with the second intervention yet to be announced.

See the V4ULT website for details. **
