A hole is invisible without the surrounding material, but where is the material that originally filled the hole?

A new Reconstruction series was commissioned by Kunstraum Dreieich for a private collector. This offered an opportunity to revisit a project I had worked on during a research period in China some years ago, reflecting on urbanisation and mega cities as living spaces for humans and other species.

HELLA BERENT and MARGRET WIBMER explore relations between bodies, objects and spaces. Openness and a quiet oddity characterise the conceptual-poetic works of both artists, encouraging a reexamination of established culture-dependent conventions and norms. Thus, the two artistic positions juxtaposed in the exhibition “intrinsic oddity’ refer sensually and with ease to current issues such as feminism, (body)identity, and cultural affiliation.
