SABINE REINFELD mit PHILIPP REINFELD
In her performances, Sabine Reinfeld (*1976, D) breaks down conventional ways of looking at and narrating spaces. She analyses physical structures and the social structures behind them in order to question them through precise physical gestures and movement sequences. She understands physical action as a means of creating images. Thematically, Reinfeld often addresses issues of identity, whether in relation to East-West German history or the art world. The architect Philipp Reinfeld (*1974, D) examines how the reception and production of architecture and the city are affected by spatial representation in visual media. His practice has always been closely linked to artistic issues. His teaching and research focuses on the relationship between architectural design, photography and virtual reality. In their first joint installation, Sabine and Philipp Reinfeld deal with the American architects and theorists Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown und Steven Izenour, who coined the terms "decorated shed" and "duck" for certain types of buildings in Las Vegas in the 1970s. A wooden box stands at Nordbahnhof, a sign emblazoned on its roof: "JE NE SUIS PAS UN CANARD". What then? A pipe? An art transport? A Western parcel? A GDR citizen in clandestine transit towards West Germany? Opening of the box / performance: Daily at 16:00 (except 15.09.). Timber construction and design: Tuvmali.
