POURING INTO AN ARRAY OF CHARACTERS
Pouring into an Array of Characters is an exhibition about forms of connectedness and exchange with both the here and now and the otherworld. With artworks by Chiara Fumai, Omsk Social Club, Tabita Rezaire and Saya Woolfalk, Galerie im Turm becomes a spiritual lounge where elements of science fiction, occultism, meditation and play come together.
The double meaning of the word ‘character’ refers not only to people, but also to fictional or abstract figures, letters and symbols. While Chiara Fumai acts as a medium in her works and makes contact with historical, often marginalized female figures, Omsk Social Club uses methods of Live Action Role Play and Real Game Play to create social situations in which players can explore fictions or potential realities.
Saya Woolfalk creates a fictional, symbiotic species, that suspends dichotomies in its hybrid universe. Beyond Western thought traditions, Tabita Rezaire investigates connectivity and dynamic networks in technological, spiritual and biological respects. Pouring into an Array of Characters questions common rationalist notions of reality. How can we create an open space to redefine our existence in relation to the world?
