In the Studio: Collectors Agenda

Voices of Contemporary Art and Culture
Interview with Sophia Pompéry "Sophia Pompéry is an observer. In quiet concentration she draws poetic truths from the seemingly mundane. Her conceptual art works utilize everyday things and their underlying physics, inviting us to examine and get to know these presumed already known articles anew. In greeting us at her Berlin studio Sophia ignited a candle, suspended from the ceiling, with a wick at each end. Burning from each end towards the center, the double-candle sets the duration of our conversation, similarly to an hourglass. ..."

Nach dem großen Erfolg der Gruppenausstellung BOTTOM UP im Jahr 2018 bietet deren zweite Ausgabe erneut einen Überblick über das künstlerische Schaffen in Berlin. Durch den selbst-organisierten Zusammenschluss von Künstlerinnen und Künstlern fand eine Gruppe zusammen, die geschätzte Kolleginnen und Kollegen eingeladen hat, das Kühlhaus Berlin gemeinsam für die Dauer einer Woche auf drei Stockwerken virtuos zu bespielen. Die Auswahl wurde nicht durch eine Einzelperson oder Institution getroffen und weder thematisch oder medial eingeschränkt noch durch Altersvorgaben oder Ähnliches begrenzt; was die beteiligten Künstlerinnen und Künstler verbindet, ist die Stadt Berlin als Bezugs-, Lebens- oder Arbeitsmittelpunkt. Der Ausstellungstitel BOTTOM UP ist angelehnt an die gleichnamige Methode aus der Soziologie. Diese bezeichnet als Gegensatz zu TOP DOWN den Vorgang der Selbstorganisation in sozialen Systemen „von unten nach oben“, bei dem von einem Zusammenschluss aus Einzelnem auf das große Ganze geschlossen wird — Induktion statt Deduktion. Zudem bedeutet es umgangssprach-lich so viel wie „den Arsch hochkriegen“, d.h. nicht in einer Post-Covid-Starre zu verharren, sondern die Dinge selbst anzupacken und in Bewegung zu bringen. Nach drei Jahren pandemiebedingter Einschränkungen will BOTTOM UP dazu Anstoß und Gelegenheit geben: 19 Künstlerinnen und 17 Künstler werden in den großzügigen zentralen Räumen des Kühlhauses in musealer Dimension zusammengebracht.

Drawn from the Arter Collection, the group exhibition ThisPlay revolves around the concepts of childhood and play. The exhibition aims to explore the liberating aspect of play, its defiant capacity to suspend and reconstruct reality, and the ways it transcends the humdrum of daily life to create unique systems and structures of meaning of its own, within the context of artworks, and the experiences they offer. Approaching art both as a maker and breaker of play through concepts such as competition, tension, chance, imitation, ritual, magic, trance, and pleasure, ThisPlay opens up space for both adults and children to indulge in a play where there is no winner, or everyone wins.

Throughout the exhibition, the journey of play and related concepts, starting with their inception in the imagination of the artists until their manifestation in the form of a completed artwork, is accompanied by different ways of thinking, interpretation, and alternative production processes.

Changing the rules of the game with their unusual forms and sizes, unexpected encounters and surprising ways of forming relationships, some of the works featured in the exhibition convey the idea of play itself and its tools to the context of art, and act as intermediaries for new meanings, propositions, and questions. Other works that are presented in ThisPlay highlight the methods, attitudes and approaches of the design and production processes of art by putting forth its similarities with the nature of play that defies the daily flow of life and welcomes chance, ambiguity and chaos while creating its own language and order.

Taking place in Arter’s first and second floor galleries, the exhibition also interprets, through playful interventions, the architecture of the spaces occupied by the artworks. By attempting to open a door that swings both ways, ThisPlay aspires to bridge the worlds, oscillating between reality and fantasy, of a child who takes dreaming seriously and a grown-up who never gives up playing.
