MELVIN MOTI
Hyperspace

In his project, the "Hyperspace“ Dutch artist Melvin Moti approaches the idea of multi-dimensional and reduced spaces. His 24-minute-long 35mm film "The eightfold dot" (2013) presents an abstract narrative that begins with the point, continues with the line then progresses to the square and the cube, all the way to the hypercube, which acts as form and symbol of the fourth dimension.

Featuring:
CHLOE STEAD, Multiplicity #3 – a reader

KERSTIN CMELKA
All Change

Kerstin Cmelka's interest in the format of "microdramas" provides the focus in her exhibition at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof. The short dramatic texts of frequently performed plays – considering their distribution – have gained the popularity of a folk play. Arranged in an installation of video projections, the plays physically direct the viewer through the exhibition space.

For this exhibition, shown in the fourth week of the “Rochade” project, the artists Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann and Philip Pichler will “pull one over” on the Kunstverein, literally. They will outfit the top of the glass waiting pavilion with a sculpture – an object reminiscent of mundane relics found in a train station, inspiring us to reconsider public art projects.

ADRIAN LOHMÜLLER
And to make you toe the line

For his installation "And To Make You Toe The Line" at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, in the former waiting room for first and second class travellers, Adrian Lohmüller establishes an extensive, artificial space that is both open and refers to its own limits. We are reminded of parks laid out in urban space as consciously constructed and geometrically structured open spaces.

Am Piano: JOHANNES WILDE

"Vortrag/Trag/Nachtrag: Versuch zum erfolgreichen Scheitern" ist die Rede über Kunst und die Frage nach der Sinnhaftigkeit von Professionalität. Innerhalb des Vortrags wird der Vortrag sich auf sich selbst beziehen, abschweifen, zitieren, aufzählen. Er endet im Scheitern, könnte aber immer wieder im Loop von vorn beginnen.

SHAHRYAR NASHAT
Stunt

A stuntman, Frédéric Dessains, sits on a bench in the Rubens room of the Louvre. Commonly seen in French action films, Dessains was hired by the artist Shahryar Nashat. With keen concentration, he warms up for the physical challenge of turning the conventions of looking at pictures upside down.

This show is the first in a new series “Am Piano” (On the Piano), featuring young artists from Hamburg accompanying the exhibitions in the main hall in 2012.

Is this where it ends?

The artists Sunah Choi (*1968, Busan, Korea) and Haroon Mirza (*1977, London) are concerned with the translation mechanisms of noise, and in " Is this where it ends?" Choi and Mirza sound out the exhibition space phonetically as well as kinetically.
