Anna M. Szaflarski will be featured during the Futureless Group Exhibition with her video project "Will you please be quiet?" which demonstrates the liberating potential of dismantling the domestic realm. In this work, three common domestic items appear as if they are falling autonomously from the sky; rejected by a force greater than an individual, like a planetary immune system that pushes them out of the body.

The womb of a fish, a buried river and the voices of the city come together in LIQUID ENTITIES, a multidisciplinary installation by ecofeminist artist duo Areej al Huniti & Eliza Goldox that is presented during the Futureless Group Exhibition. In this work combining virtual reality, video, writing and sound, the artists turn towards mythological interpretations of a dried-up river in Amman, Jordan to generate feminist imaginations of the personal and societal.

Fallon Mayanja, featured in the Futureless Group Exhibition presenting the video installation, 'Or the Inescapable III.' The video utilizes electronics and technology as tools to share, feel, and listen, to combine the audible and the inaudible, the unspoken and unspeakable, the world inside and outside of sound. It is an exploration of bodies and identities, particularly their plurality and multiplicity, considering the intersections of Blackness, queerness and femininity.

Futureless opens April 1, running until April 18.

Heather Renée Russ' multidisciplinary installation, 'Tidewrack' is featured in the Futureless Group Exhibition which traces the myriad of possibilities for queer/feminist futures. Her work explores the conflict between celebration and anxiety; celebrating nature while feeling its precarity, celebrating queer togetherness while also feeling anxious for the next displacement.

ji-yeon kim is painting one hundred poetic portraits from tinder profiles

You might remember Jiyeon Kim's well-known series in which she painted 100 portraits of people she saw on Tinder. The paintings sparked controversy about privacy on the internet, and led us to question how we portray ourselves on social media.
For her latest exhibition, Jiyeon Kim - After the Flood, the artist explores other aspects of the internet, moving from the selfie to the "story," documenting the effects of the flood of visuals and information that we are faced with everyday. She depicts this visually in her fragmented, collage-style paintings, which will be on view at SomoS, opening on Tuesday March 17th at 6pm.

For all those interested in joining the next Fantastic Beings Workshop - "Body Sculpting & Assemblage" #2 taking place 7- 8 March - here is a look back at our last workshop from December 2019!

In the Fantastic Beings workshop, Spanish multidisciplinary artist Iria do Castelo will teach you how to build a human-like sculpture using plaster bandages, homemade paper mache, clay and found objects. The workshop is designed to give an opportunity for participants to improve their creative process and explore new paths of sculpture and assemblage together with an established and experienced artist.

Conducted in English and suitable for anyone, artist or not, from 18 and above. All materials will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring along curious objects that they may wish to incorporate into their sculptures. Registration is required.

Iria do Castelo presents the workshop as a way to highlight the imaginative opportunities that are possible when sculpture, assemblage and the body come together. Inspired by Gothic art, eroticism, dreams and the dark depths of the human psyche, in her own work, do Castelo creates perverse and disruptive settings in which sculpture draws on emotion rather than formal rules. What often emerges from do Castelo’s creative process are fantastical creatures that bear resemblance to human figures. With do Castelo as a guide and teacher, participants of the Fantastic Beings workshop will be led to replicate their own bodies, transforming their moulds into new non-human, biomorphic compositions with the aid of assemblage techniques.

Iria do Castelo's installations draw from the hidden tensions and impulses of human’s psychology. She uses the body and the unconscious perception that we have of it, as a starting point, materializing it into sculpture. Looking at eroticism as a very unique way to approach the physical limits and the animal condition of the human body, do Castelo's work draws on emotion rather than formal rules.

In 2012, do Castelo graduated with a Masters in Graphic Design from Fundación CIEC. A Coruña, Spain and is represented by galleries in Spain, Hong Kong and Melbourne. She has exhibited extensively in a number of solo shows, group exhibitions and art fairs internationally. Her work has been featured at MAC Contemporary Art Museum in Coruña, Spain.

Hi Berliners, I'm an artist from Russia temporary residing in SomoS till August. I'm doing my project about the political aspect of food, looking for vegans, vegetarians (together with green activists, dumpster divers, guerrilla gardeners, etc.) My main task is a set of video-interviews with vegans/ vegetarians: I ask people to choose their fav cafe and take a vegan/ vegetarian meal. I make a video while they are eating and asking questions. Mostly about the origin of their lifestyle, ideology, plus some speculations. Only one condition: I ask to eat with hands, not to wipe mouth, and look directly into the lens. Kind of going beyond cultural codes. Also I ask to speak native language. Since I do not speak German I would ask to translate briefly into English to be able to follow the speech. SO! If you feel like participating or can help with contacts or what it will be lovely! To familiarize yourself with my work - my web site is kseniayurkova.com. Feel free to contact me directly for the details. Vielen Dank!!!
