Works by Isabell Kamp und Anika Hirt

In der Doppelausstellung befassen sich die beiden Künstlerinnen Isabell Kamp und Anika Hirt mit Kommunikation, dem Raum, den sie einnimmt und ihrer Wirkung auf zwischenmenschliche Wahrnehmung.
Ob Laut, Symbol oder Objekt – unsere Kommunikation ist ein System aus Zeichen und ihren Bedeutungen, die auf konventionellem Weg verbunden sind. In Anlehnung an die Semiotik verstehen Kamp und Hirt ihre Arbeiten als „Zeichenkörper“, die das Zeichen als wahrnehmbares Phänomen erfahrbar machen.


Inflatables Compilation

These inflatables are a shareable space to be entered and explored. Depending on the lighting, the material used acts as a one-way mirror between inside and outside. The border between spaces is thus blurred, creating a purely visual sense of privacy.

An inflatable as shareable space to be entered and explored. Depending on the lighting, the material used acts as a one-way mirror between inside and outside. The border between spaces is thus blurred, creating a purely visual sense of privacy. This work is part of a series of inflatables made of silver and gold foil.

Dress the Kicker

"Kicker" is the German word for foosball. There happens to be a bunch of unhappy and boring looking figures stuck to a Kicker table. They are also all male. Come out and help dress 'em up on 701's art night on Thursday October 13th 2016 to make a collaborative art Kicker.

We will have some materials like fabrics, wool, pens etc but feel free to bring anything you can think of. The only restriction would be that the figures still need to be playable so don’t extend them too much in size (especially on the bottom) and don’t use materials like glitter that would easily fall on the table.

Bible Safe: Plan B or My Enlightenment

A Giddeons Bible as a Safe.

Plan B is a Bible keeping my secret safe. It is enclosed by a tiny mylar inflatable. Once plugged in, the fan starts to inflate the bubble and a tiny light peaks through the mylar.

"The history of the house Bible holds many accounts from Family History, Family Trees, Important Dates and records of Birth and Death. They were used to hold certificates, deeds, savings, money and photographs. Household Bibles were generally handed down through generations, making their contents heirlooms. The House Bible was the first thing snatched up in an emergency or house fire."

Solo Show: Double Bubble

Double Bubble is an inflatable made of silver and gold metallized plastic film, exploring, creating and sharing space. It’s an escape into a new world that creates the feeling of sensuality and belonging. The spaces and borders created are blurred by the material's translucency and changing light conditions.
