Group exhibition at the project space Axel Obiger with Michael Bause, Harriet Groß, Myriam el Haϊk, Charlotte Mumm, Carsten Sievers, Francis Zeischegg.
„Wenn das Sinnlose das Sinnvolle überlebt, wird das Sinnvolle sinnlos“ - ist diese Lesart der seltsamen Figur des Odradeks aus Franz Kafka's Erzählung „Die Sorge des Hausvaters“ nicht auch eine Metapher für den Zweifel am Sinn selbst in unserer agitierten Welt geprägt von Unbeständigkeit in sozialen, geopolitischen und territorialen Fragen. Oder ist Odradek nicht auch eine Chiffre für den aktiven, immer unabgeschlossen bleibenden Vorgang des kreativen Prozesses. Odradek wäre damit keineswegs der fertige Gedanke, das abgeschlossene Werk, sondern das sich immer wieder entziehende, bewegliche, erst zu findende Werk. Dem abwesenden Phänomen Odradek also, auf dass sich die von Harriet Groß eingeladenen Künstler Michael Bause, Myriam el Haϊk, Charlotte Mumm, Carsten Sievers und Francis Zeischegg, von unterschiedlichen Ausgangspunkten aus eingelassen haben, wird hier mit den Arbeiten und den daraus entstehenden Bezügen eine mögliche Form von Sichtbarkeit gegeben.
Opening on Friday, September 27th at 7pm
Where: Axel Obiger, Brunnenstraße 29, 10119 Berlin, Germany
When: September 28th – October 20st, Thursday - Saturday 14 - 19 Uhr

The exhibition 'Biased. Pause.' at Phoinix is the artist's result of The Spur 16/18 residency at Sputnik Oz. It’s a sketch of patterns, prints and objects.
During her stay in Bratislava, Charlotte Mumm worked with patterns. These patterns are based on a dialogue with befriended artists about what patterns mean in their work. Patterns – not just as a visual decoration but- as a psychological process, a structure and imprint. And how rhetorical habits infuse the visual world and vice versa.
In 'Biased. Pause.' the artist is showing the input and outcome of this dialogue in which she approached patterns as a vehicle looking for clarityor objectivity but simultaneously getting more personal. Through the looking glass. This is accompanied by objects, which are dealing with the ambivalent processes in the pattern making and are providing a counterbalance. All of this is part of an ongoing process.
The opening takes place on February 15th, 6-9 pm. I'll be present.
When: February 15th until March 11th, 2018. Where: Phoinix, Štetinova 1, Bratislava, Slovak Republic
