Ute Wassermann, voice and object, with a DJ set afterwards

Multiphonic trills and yodels, loops of ululations, sudden percussive outbursts, warbling glissandi….  Ute Wassermann masks her voice with various bird and palate whistles and percussion objects. She transforms into many vocal beings with sculptural, oscillating, swirling tone-colour. Her voice dissolves into  the sound of birds and insects, machines, electronics, scraps of otherworldly language. Does her voice remain human or does it become the other?

 

Ute Wassermann is a vocal artist, composer-performer and improviser. She tours worldwide as a vocal performer, she realises audiovisual performances and composes for soloists and ensembles. Her multidimensional singing makes her voice oscillate between electronic, inorganic human and animal qualities. In addition, she alienates and expands her voice with bird and palate whistles, objects, acoustic costumes or various microphones. Ute Wassermann has premiered numerous works written for her with well-known ensembles and orchestras. She has received commissions from: MaerzMusik, University of Amsterdam, Poetica Sonora Mexico City, Ryogoku Art Festival Japan, Transart Festival Bozen, Musik der Jahrhunderte, maulwerker and Distractfold Ensemble. Releases on labels: mode, nurnichtnur, creative sources, ABC Classic, Psi, treader, olof bright.

10 Dec 2020 – 10 Dec 2021, from dusk on the facade above the gallery

coming-events-one-item.php (leftcol & maincol)

Brüder-Grimm-Haus, Galerie Nord | Kunstverein Tiergarten

As dusk falls, wondrous sequences of words will shine in deep blue on the façade of the Brüder Grimm Haus at Turmstraße 75 from 10 December 2020: AUS – MAUS – MUS – RAUS – RAU – REH – RUM.

“15 Letters – 101 Words” is an artistic intervention by Penelope Wehrli over the lettering on the Brüder Grimm Haus building, which begins this evening as a year-long word-light play as part of the DraußenStadt initiative. The name BRÜDER-GRIMM-HAUS identifies – usually little noticed by passers-by – the historic house in Turmstraße, which with all its institutions has been dedicated to art, culture and further education for decades.

Penelope Wehrli places the name above the window front of the Galerie Nord | Kunstverein Tiergarten at the centre of her installation. The individual letters of the three words form the material for her artistic work and the puns she has composed, some unusual, some absurd, shine in the most varied combinations, speeds and rhythms. They make references to the German dictionary of the Brothers Grimm and give rise to images of their collection of fairy tales. The overriding of syntactical references and the use of tonal sound sequences evoke associations with comics, trash art and Dada.

Our language is a living organism and is in a state of permanent change. Letters and sounds become words, they are shaped, written and spoken. They denote and generate consciousness and meaning. They play with meaning, are the medium of our culture and create a sense of belonging. Again and again, new words and terms are created – or disappear from our vocabulary, for fashionable or socio-political reasons, sometimes rightly, sometimes wrongly, accompanied by a feeling of relief or regret.

Language crashes, cuts, sings. Be it crude, precise or poetic: it opens up spaces for imagination, sound and feeling. With her intervention, Penelope Wehrli not only raises awareness of the name of the house, but above all of the vitality of culture and language.

6 pm: Curators’ tour

The curatorial team of “Eccentric 80s” offers a tour through their exhibition.

7 pm: Panel “Women working with women. Feminist Art:  80s/Today” with Ergül Cengiz (3 Hamburger Frauen), Burcu Dogramaci, Sarah Happersberger and Marie Schleef

The figure of complicity, which is central to the exhibition “Eccentric 80s”, refers to a solidary collaboration that transcends generations and modes of expression. The panel discusses being an accomplice with a view to feminist artistic, curatorial and research practices. Artist Ergül Cengiz, theater director Marie Schleef, art historians Sarah Happersberger and Burcu Dogramaci will talk about collaboration as empowerment: how can feminist historiography function less as a promotional visualization and more as a gesture of cooperation with historical positions as well? What new queer-feminist spaces of thought and action modes are and have been opened up by working together in the 1980s and today?
