Soon Enough @ Project Space Festival, Aug 3

1 August 2016

The Soon Enough group exhibition is on at Berlin’s insitu opening August 3.

Guest curated by Matilde Cerruti Quara and Sorana Serban for the 2016 Project Space Festival Berlin, the event is a one-night series of performances and a group show with works by James Hoff, Franziska Lantz, Deborah Ligorio, Mara Ploscaru, Nicolò Russian and Priscilla Tea. Both will open the same night.

It is self-described as “an exploration of time” and posits that time is an assumption, “an apparatus humankind produced in order not to lose track of itself”. It further states, “once overcome, the evolution of species may spread beyond its borders, crossing the limits of this dimension”.

The performances represent a “metaphorical Big Bang within the context of the exhibition” and include a guided meditation by Ligorio. The meditation aims to develop “inner evolution through both critical thinking and relaxation” and will feature a sound performance intervention by Lantz, who will produce “ancestral sounds from an era of the future past”.
