Friday, September 5, 7pm

pcnc_bay is a nomadic, changing textile; a backdrop, a centre, an in-between. It is a flying carpet, drifting between the borders of production of art, its display, and its consumption.

For the iteration in TOVES’ court yard, pcnc_bay (Manuel Scheiwiller (CH), Lucia Elena Prusa (DE), and Anna Holtz (DE)) will collaborate with Swiss artist Reto Pulfer.

Cucumber Bones is an exhibition based on our predilection for attributing human characteristics to objects.
Similarly to when we recognize features or faces in pebbles or a cloud formation, we keep insisting on incorporating human characteristics in the design of our everyday appliances often using cute and emotive anthropomorphisms to counteract their inanimate properties. This wish seemingly opposes the contemporary human self-image that is migrating towards a more clinical, technological state of being.

Cucumber Bones features a group of works that in different ways explore forms of anthropomorphisms and their inherent connection to notions of nature-culture. In function and gesture these work oscillates between human and artificial, between utility and fog.

In medias such as animation, sculpture, assemblage, text and installation the artists give inanimate objects human features dealing with the foolish, tabooed and sometimes banally humane in being human.
This exhibition emerges from these diverse conceptions of human conditions, dealing both with physical and aesthetic characteristics within that range of (pseudo) bodily elements that we have become so invested in technically bridging.

 

SANS SOUCI
Saturday, 20 September at 20.00

The internet may have brought on a wave of strange bedfellows in the shape of tentacles and monsters, often associated with rape fantasies. SANS SOUCI asks if perhaps sex with the Other also could, and have been, a place for less boring power exchanges.
A screening night of classic and unclassic intercourses and a death erection will mark the finissage current exhibition CUCUMBER BONES.
