Shahryar Nashat & Adam Linder
Performance by Hannah Weinberger
Schinkel Pavillon
28.04. – 15.05.2016

Schinkel Pavillon present artists’ Shahryar Nashat and Adam Linder, who work collaboratively to stage two parallel projects, where they place their respective practices – sculpture and dance within an interactive dialogue. For the time-based intervention Some Strands of Support, Nashat will exhibit sculpture work paired with video, whilst Linder activates these works by responsive choreography entitled Hard Up for Support. These sculptural, filmic and performative elements are presented in a sequence and accompanied by a specially conceived sound-track. Through the collaboration and different disciplines employed, a tension is created between the ethereal presence of the performative body, film and of sculpture. The Pavilion’s Schinkel Klause is a site for artist Hannah Weinberger’s PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE –  a participatory performative work, which involves an invited group of musicians who create a social space through music. Weinberg leads the musicians on atmospheric directive but keeps the door open for interpretation of individual style, and in turn creates unique performances within diverse and arbitrary concert hall environment. This concert evolves into a social experiment for the artist, where she questions the relationships between the audience and performer and creates a sensibility for our everyday aesthetic, societal and cultural relations.
