Elif Erkan & Fabian Schöneich
Dienstag, 2. Dezember 2014, 19 Uhr, Aula
On the occasion of her exhibition Konzentration der Kräfte, German-Turkish artist Elif Erkan will talk with Fabian Schöneich, curator of Portikus, about the function of objects as reservoirs of memory. In her sculptural works, Erkan directs our attention away from the original purpose or provenance of daily objects and toward their social connotations: that mental image we see as we are confronted with these objects. The talk will focus on daily objects like tableware and cloth and their use in very bitter-sweet moments of life.
Das Gespräch findet in englischer Sprache statt.
