The ouroboros signifies the cyclic process of time, the snake makes an endless self-supporting system renewing itself by devouring itself. Holding together and harmonising the opposites of life and death, light and dark, destruction and creation. Transformation is the process of growth and decay which take place in nature giving the ability to rise in a series of different forms. In amongst ruins stand strong defiant figures. Powerful queens who rise up from the ashes of their collapsed empire; like the resurrection of the phoenix who continues to renew itself through death and re-birth. Symbolising renewal, the sun, time, empire and metamorphosis.

Dear friends gape,

the first 6 gape events were a blast of wonder. Now we announce we will continue with our program this coming Autumn, there we can see is still so much to offer.

OPEN CALL
This means our OPEN CALL for performers and artists remains in place. Please contact us at [email protected] if you are interested in performing. Previous performers are welcome back with new works.

KATALOG - PHOTO SUBMISSIONS WELCOME
In the meantime..... we are committed to publishing a katalog of gape, as a way to thank our underpaid performers and to showcase the performance photography of Miss Moon, DB, and....? Perhaps you! If you have photos, documentation or reviews of any of the gape performances, please get in touch [email protected] or via facebook, and we will add you to our dropbox and invite you to be part of the editorial process of our katalog. Publication ideas and connections also welcome.

FUNDING
We are currently investigating funding opportunities for gape, so that we can evolve from artist funded to funding artists. If you have any experience with applications please, we would love to learn from you or work with you. ( [email protected] or via facebook )

THANKS!!!
gape Team

Decay

Painting is a creature that man has devised in order to 'save' history. The durability of paint has evolved accordingly. But to be present forever and not to fade away is impossible.

It is an art-form to appreciate the discoloration, spots and cracks in Japanese pottery. To hear the baked soil breath. Paper and canvas breathe in the same way.

So do we. The changes that occur in the female body from infancy to adulthood are dizzying. Many painters have captured the beauty of the female. But it is truly impossible to contain such beauty, even in oil paint. Because everyone breathes, stains, fades and dies old.

Throughout history, painters have captured and preserved the female form. And why is it that people look? Not because it is a human, but because it is an animal, walking on its hind legs. There are many reasons why a creature stands, but presented with the face and abdomen, we see the vitality. Hands are free to use tools and faces can express language. In a bold act of expressing evolution, painters throughout time have painted the face and chest, because the abdomen instinctively interested people.

You should also pay attention to the differences in the preservation of Japanese and foreign cultures. For example, old wall paper peeled off the walls of a Berlin house reveals hidden layers. Japanese houses, with different architecture, reveal different layers of paint. So it is that the evolution of painting itself is different from culture to culture, climate to climate and country to country.

My paintings represent decades over layers. Peel under the portrait veneer, and a second layer of abstract painting reveals. This two layer structure and act of peeling represents the history of painting.

I am now in Berlin to depict all of this through the picture of the girl, deconstructed during the period of growth.

"LAUTE STILLE" DIE ZEITBOMBE

Elias Elastic, mime artist from Berlin, known for his python skin of the variability creates in "Time Bomb" a wonderfully diverse pantomime program for a new generation of visual theater.

A professor from the future in his laboratory possesses a time machine. What tests and surprises lie ahead of him you must see for yourself!! A stunning journey into fantasies of our imagination, in "Loud Silence" The Time Bomb.

GIFT!

Born from the ashes of the former St.Genet, GIFT, is a one man noise project based on guitar, pedals, and loops. Between holy and demonic expression, soft guitar whispers meet against hard, crying, violent strokes. Loud, rough, and yet soft, GIFT is flight, crash, black and white noise poison, contamination by creation.

MIMI AND THE GUYS

Berlin-based Mimi & the Guys began in early 2012 as a playful experiment between Mimi König and Mariano Scopel, only to quickly grow into a larger ecosystem involving a varied cast of friends and collaborators.

Dreamy voices, catchy melodies, meandering loops, and chillout sounds mingle in and out of a sun-drenched dream of electronic compositions, hints of post-rock, tropical psychedelia, and indie twists.

FREAKY FREEDOM

Experimental music is the keyword when listening to Freaky Freedom but they also use written material to work around such as graphic notation, a small text or a bass line but always leaving the freedom of expression to speak for itself.

Gregor Siedl - tenor saxophone
Antti Virtaranta - double bass
Adrian David Krok - drums

HAN SATO

Han was born in 1973 and playing saxophone since 1986. In 2004 he started playing as a member of “Shibusa Shirazu”, a world well-known underground jazz orchestra, with whom he has toured around the globe. Now he performs jazz and experimental music in Berlin.

We are going nowhere.
Here we are.
