IRRMITATION

By | Exhibtions | No Comments
Solo Exhibition
06. – 20. May 2017
Cologne, DE

 

In the context of this year’s Sommerblut Festival I got invited by tanzfaktur to present an solo exhibition with my works in Cologne. It turned out to be four old works of mine, of which I adapted two to the new location.

At the time of the exhibition the tanzfaktur has been a place of becoming: After a long period of reconstructing the location revealed itself in new size and beautiful industrial aesthetic: Freshly painted plasterboard drywall installation on top of the broken concrete floor, puristic pallet interior, improvised bar and sitting possibilities inside an old storage hall.

Using the left-overs of the construction I built another room in the foyer of tanzfaktur, framing a neon light on the ceiling. It became part of the adaptation of my work „Mimikry“: The light switched on and off randomly, I filmed it frontally from the bottom and projected a fullsize version of it on the floor.

On the stage I installed my work „Chairway to Heaven“: Seven chairs stood next to each other, creating a sequence of movement of the chair. In short intervals they got illuminated after another, creating the illusion of movement. The stage was seated with 60 chairs, of which I used 7 for the installation. So 54 chairs in the audience were watching the „performance“ of 7 on stage.

 
Furthermore I exhibited „Verschleißerscheinung“ („sign of wear“) and my 2-channel-videoinstallation „Let Go“ with Meret Mundwiler in the major role.

This project, named „Irrmitation“ was curated and initiated by Kai Kullen and Adrián Castello. I’d like to thank them for the invitation. The project also included a performance choreographed by Adrián Castello, which was presented on May 14th.

I also would like to thank Slava Gepner, Lukas Medzech, Karl Werner Maria Meyer and most notably my brother Thomas Zerbst, who was a enormous help at the setup of the exhibition.
 

 

 

 

 

Misunderstandings

SOLO EXHIBITION
10. – 16. January 2017
Hanoi, VN

 

‚Misunderstandings’ was an solo exhibition that reflected critically about how a producer of cultural contributions that claim to be relevant is able to work in a foreign culture. Lukas Zerbst made his situation his subject and divested it in four works.

Among the sound-wise most opulent installation „Ghostriders“, the movie „Speech Bubble“, the Video-Loop „Towards New Adventures“, as well as a documentation of his site-specific installation „Selfie“ were exhibited.
 
With this solo exhibition Lukas finished his stay in Vietnam in January 2017, where he lived and worked for five months.
 
Lukas likes to say Thank you to Claire Discoll and Doriab Gibb for the art space, as well as Fabiola Büchele for a good cooperation and interesting chats. Furthermore a special Thank you is dedicated to Bui Kim Dinh for her outstanding support.
