In this special solo show at PremArts, Dafne Della Dafne presents a collection of her latest song compositions and sound works, with accompanying video material, tracking her artistic interpretation of socio-economic and cultural conditions. In a landscape inhabited by changed climates, precarious living and gentrification, late capitalism’s gloom and doom is analysed in Dafne Della Dafne’s creative lab, Salon Daflon, and transformed into contemplative ruminations on how to survive and thrive in modern times.

There will be a live half-hour performance by the artist every evening.

Free entry, donations welcome.

Featuring 13 chromogenic prints including one diptych , True South offers a glimpse into the artist’s extensive travels. True south, defined as the direction towards the southern end of the axis about which the earth rotates, is more poetically described by the artist as “the direction towards the other side…and the eternity of an instant” as well as a “state of mind.” The photographic images in this exhibition evoke Ten Hoever ‘s innate ability to discover and capture on film a hidden secret or story within a place he dwells. This gift comes from his patience and openness to experience on a deeper level the people and atmosphere of the places he encounters. For Ten Hoever, travel is not defined by the destination but rather the journey that he allows to unfold. Whether in Taos, Cartagena, Pueblo Garzon, the Cyclades or Cape de Creus, the artist approaches the land and its inhabitants with a striking sensitivity rare in today’s world.

Oppelner Strasse –Summer in the City, 10997 BERLIN

Oppelner Strasse and its neighbourhood has its histories that wears on it in layers, vibrating to the contemporary tempo of the city in it and around it. Kreuzberg is based on settling, dynamism and remodelling. The city is ever changing and unique. In 2017, a collaboration between PremArts gallery and artists including Joe Hayes and Kwame Aidoo who found a new home in Berlin through the creative spark of its indegenes, started a conversation which has now become the seed project called Görlitzer Park Arts Festival. We look forward to an interactive, exploratory, educative and impactful festival where we can learn and have fun at the same time and breathe love into the city and inhale the beauty of humanity, interconnectedness and community.

MISSION AND VISION

On the topic of sustainability in global cities like Berlin, while addressing the prospects of change agents, we look at ourselves as artists, community members, children of the metrof the urban dynamics, makers, users of space, consumers, curators, bikers, merchants, food lovers, plastic waste collectors, etc. We focus on our direct and indirect responsibilities and how our body languages affect the things around us which in turn affect our anatomies. As such, the project will shine light on key sustainability issues, inclusion, and introduce us to change agents from a variety of disciplines.

PROPOSED DATES – AUGUST 2018

Kwame Aidoo – Inkfluent (Berlin, Paris, Accra)
Kenneth Balfelt – Kenneth Balfelt Team (Copenhagen)
Joe Hayes – Joe by Joe (New York)
Minnie Griffith, Photographer and PR (Berlin, West UK, Marseilles)
Elle Peril , Femina non Grata

Fountains – Strassenbrunnen Oppelner Str.,

THEME:

BODY LANGUAGE

Body language embodies the embedded reflections and silent choreographies of political agency In today’s reality of mass migration, voluntary and forced, where bodies resettle away from war and poverty to create diasporic public spheres where new identifications take place and new identities have to be negotiated. The governing maps of migration show that for refuge seekers, there are still key arbiters that define

who belong to the political community (e.g. citizens) and who remain outside (e.g. undocumented migrants). The affinities or rejections from nation states and local forces apropos to migrant bodies enforces codes of conduct that the settler has to adapt to, to survive. Bodies navigate a new language by losing the language their bodies already knew, new gestures and rhythms are engulfed on their anatomies which are also nonetheless ‘political sites’ Furthermore, migrant’s bodies are also sites of collective memory on which collective history, including colonialism, is written.
