ABOUT THE PROJECT
As part of Kvadrat’s institutional collaboration program, South Into North has worked together with KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin and artist Tamara Henderson.
For KW, Henderson transformed the exhibition space into an underground cinema. The film Womb Life is accompanied by a group of eight characters masked as performative items of furniture and equipped with intrinsic instructions for the willing participant. The windows, shrouded in custom-made curtains, create a theatre space that breathes the lights on and off, allowing the visitors to encounter the furniture as sculptures at times while the film is inactive.
Curator: Anna Gritz
Assistant curator: Maurin Dietrich
South into North’s role in this project is part of our work consulting Kvadrat on their collaborations with artists and art institutions internationally.
