On Thursday, 26th October at 6pm Evelin Saul and Madlen Hirtentreu will open their first joint exhibition ‘Transmission’ at HOP gallery.
The exhibition stays open till 14th November.
In 1632, Galileo Galilei published his ‘Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems’. Some pages of the aforementioned book are dedicated to a discussion of a ship that leaves Venice for Aleppo. One speaker, Sagredo, imagines a pen that would leave a visible mark of the entire voyage from Italy towards Syria.
Noble Venetians ponder how it could be that everything on board remains immobile, while at the same time leaving a thousand-yard-long trace. They discover that a true and real motion can be seen from different perspectives, including those from which this very movement would be as if nonexistent.
Exhibition involves inner and outer space, movement between instinctive, controllable and uncontrollable.
One is left with resonance.
Attention: Access to mechanical inventory is physically restricted
