ich bin, varım, je suis, Abendrot

light machine, light night

For the exhibition, Susanne Kriemann gathers objects between prehistory and future that are directly connected to Körner Park, Berlin Neukölln. The highlight is a mammoth bone from the Ice Age that was found in Franz Körner’s gravel pit around 1900. Also on display is the Geiger Fries by Neukölln sculptor Moritz Geiger, a sample of light-reflecting Blingcrete TM, a tree stump that once belonged to a tree growing in Körnerpark, and a scaled model of the park itself. Through their arrangement, the objects are removed from their respective time continuums and become individual organisms, which visitors illuminate themselves with the help of a hand-cranked lamps.
Ich bin, varim, je suis Abendrot is designed as a process. In dialogue with visitors to the exhibition, ideas are developed for a future-oriented illumination of Körnerpark. Together they will think about sustainability, personal responsibility and innovative ways of producing light. At the end of the exhibition, on the night of the time change from October 29th to 30th, 2015, the research results will be presented and the dusk will be extended to dawn.
The exhibition design was created in collaboration with architect Oxana Gourinovitch.
