a performative act / a video art by Pauline Doutreluingne and Lee Duk Hee
evening projection in Bergstrasse
On the border between Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg lies the secret garden of Pauline Doutreluigne and Anne Duk Hee Jordan with its magic universe. For Die Balkone, they used their windows to give us a brief glimpse of what goes on within through a shadow play of creatures and underwater projections. Their work takes inspiration from marine life, biology, sexuality and reproduction, nutrition, and ecology and researches them with the help of specialists from various fields.
Set designer and painter Isabella Sedeka works with color and oxidized metal layering in her abstract paintings. She contributed to Die Balkone with a large pink blue canvas waving in the wind on airy Danzigerstrasse.
Pauline Doutreluingne is an independent curator, researcher, and writer based in Berlin. Through her work she seeks to stimulate cultural and ecological differentiations and deconstruct societal ideas originating from colonial thinking. Her curatorial projects are dialogues and exercises into progressive imaginaries. Doutreluingne is trained in Sinology at Ghent University, where she completed a master’s thesis on experimental Chinese art and post-Orientalism. She then followed with a master’s program in art criticism at CAFA in Beijing.
ANNE DUK HEE JORDAN
Transience and transformation are the central themes in the work of Anne Duk Hee Jordan. Through movement and performance, Jordan gives materiality another dimension – she builds motorized sculptures and creates edible landscapes. Her sculptures are intended to draw the viewer into the present and open a dialogue between natural phenomena, philosophy, and art. Her work is like an interactive fantasy play with knowledge and theories about the world and our souls.
