When the moon is at its rest
a solo show by Clara Bro Uerkvitz
In the show, Clara exhibits paintings and sculptures based on the idea of the phenomenon “Nuchette,” and the plant Curcuma Longo.
Clara Bro Uerkvitz´ work deals with the subjective value and the experience of landscape. The concept of beauty is questioned by exploring the phenomenological idea of perception. “It is not in the eye, but in the mind”. In her painting practice Clara Bro is concerned with awareness of materials, as an ecological and spiritual interest. Her work celebrates the presence of the object, as a statement of the importance of beauty from an ecofeministic perspective. With a sensitive approach to the experience of colours and landscape, the work deals with questions of an established relationship to nature.
Clara has studied previously at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in the department of Performative Art. She is currently enrolled in the MA programme of Fine Art in Reykjavik. She is a member of the ecological artist collective Ragnarok Intelligence Project.
A solo exhibition by Josephin Hanke
Josephin Hanke’s work is based on socio-political topics as borders, exclusion and Otherness. Through her previous body of work dealing with the notion of observing and reflecting on the origin of fear in the Western European middleclass in the context of rigging the ‘Fortress Europe’, she now focuses on questions of dystopia and utopia. In order to create a space reflecting on society, she uses mixed media installations, video and performance.
Josephin Hanke lives and works in Berlin. Currently she is an exchange student in the MA programme of the Iceland Academy of the Arts. In Germany she is studying at the Weissensee Kunsthochschule, Berlin in the fine art/sculpture department. She is a member of the collective STANLEY (founded in Reykjavík 2017) and the performance group Bigottbar (founded in Berlin 2014).
