Düsseldorf / Berlin, Germany

The final installment of Horizontal Vertigo’s screening program at Julia Stoschek Collection will present a selection of videos by artist duo Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė.

The videos and fragrances featured in this screening are connected to the artists’ ongoing performance project YOUNG GIRL READING GROUP (YGRG). Through YGRG Gawęda and Kulbokaitė depict, examine, and contextualize the reading body, rendering it a site of active relations in which the interdependence of the text, the body, the environment, and technology unfold. Through YGRG, they strive to create a new sensibility toward reading as a form of embodied language and a collective practice.

  • Adrianna Ault: Levee

    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief.
