Kernel – Enclosures (first attempt) – V4ULT
NERO is pleased to announce the newly opened space of V4ULT in a new address in Berlin. The space opens up with an exhibition by Kernel that will be marked by two interventions, the first of which will take place this Saturday, December 19th at their new location. We recommend that you don’t miss out on this exceptional event and that you also check out the recently published book curated by V4ULT and published by NERO.
Enclosures (First attempt)
The thick darkness inside the stone hill was violently disrupted by the flashlight beams. Their perfectly concentrated light was slicing the humid air towards every possible direction. As the light was landing on the bulky stack, it fleetingly constructed the forms and surfaces of the roughly assembled objects. With its metallic load wrapping it tightly, the big wooden coil is being installed strenuously over the iron rails. The edges of its wheels are worn and torn by the harsh rocks and the red soil of the slope. Its volume barely managed to get through the violated rusty mesh of the steel cage that separated the slope from the tunnel’s entrance.
Casings of fluorescent lights are ripped off from the stainless trays that were installed along the tunnel. Rocks that were transferred from the foothills of the slope and wooden planks are stacked together with the uprooted casings and their destroyed lamps over the coil.
Each time that a beam hit the copper spiral, the warm light of the sharp reflections colored the crushed stone with which the ground of the tunnel was paved.
There will be two interventions into Kernel’s exhibition:
*INTERVENTION 1 / December 19, 2014 *new date*
Neil Beloufa – ‘The Analyst, the researcher, the screenwriter, the CGI tech and the lawyer’, (2011)
*INTERVENTION 2 / TBA Jan 2015
V4ULT is a curatorial platform by Anna Mikkola and Hanna Nilsson. V4ULT explores spatial boundaries by inhabiting different types of built constructions and structures. Moving beyond physical spatial limits and exploring fenced-in space as a node in a network, the exhibitions extend from an occupied space to the V4ULT website.
V4ULT – Kiefholzstrasse 401, Berlin
Intervention 1 /19 December – 7pm – 9pm
