FINSTERNIS exhibition at Gedok gallery 2015
6.11.2015 – 23.1.2016
My work SCHWARZ will be shown as a installation

„In der Grey Box zeigt Ellen Fellmann die audiovisuelle Installation „Schwarz“, in der der Klang des Ausstreichens zu einer Komposition gereift ist. Sie hat gestisch choreografierte Bild- und Klangbewegungen mit Vulkansand erschaffen und schon hier begreifen die BesucherInnen, welch vielfältige Eigenschaften Finsternis haben kann. Das Spektrum bewegt sich zwischen sanften, meditativen bis hin zu dramatisch aufgewühlten Klängen und Szenen. Die kleine, enge Box imitiert die raumgreifende Eigenschaft von Finsternis. Wir werden gänzlich eingesogen von Bild und Klang.“

(Sarah Frost, Kuratorin, zur FINSTERNIS Ausstellung, Galerie Gedok Berlin, (06.11.2015 - 23.01.2016)
