loose ends, exhibition

 loose ends 

Alessa Brossmer · Emanuel Mathias · Viktor Petrov · Mara Sandrock · Marie Lynn Speckert  

Opening: 03.03.2023  


The exhibition “loose ends” deals with different aspects of artistic research. The five artists use installations, archive collections and material experiments to show different approaches and ways of thinking. To do this, they use interdisciplinary research methods in the fields of medicine, glaciology, materials science and anthropology.


Loose ends are the open ends that arise and accumulate in every work process. However, loose ends also points to the intermediate state in which the researching artists are constantly moving. They understand their way of working as a process that they constantly check, question and change and in which they oscillate between scientific facts and their artistic interpretations.


The exhibition wants to make the forms of artistic practice gathered here tangible for the visitors* and invite them to embark on this alternative form of the search for knowledge.  


Ausstellung: 04.03.- 19.03.2023

Opening times: Sat/Sun 15 – 18 p.m. Künstlerhaus Sootbörn Sootbörn 22 22453 Hamburg
