THE SINGER



Alexine Chanel@48 Stunden Neukölln


THE SINGER is a multimedia installation which tells the story of a textile worker, a woman called Lucky. Lucky was interviewed in the urban settlement of Karai Basti, Dhaka, Bangladesh, in April 2016, during a research study of the condition of textile workers in Bangladesh. 

The installation THE SINGER features a song based on this interview. One hears the beautiful, melodic voice of the Bangla singer, emanating from the darkness of the catacombs, telling us about the life of Lucky - yet we don’t see her - only the Singer sewing machine on which she works. A single voice, a singing sewing machine, sheds a light on the existence of thousands of textile workers in Bangladesh. 

OUT OF THE DARK
This group show consists of special installations in the six “tubes” of the 4th underground level of the former Kindl-Brauerei. 
Six different site-specific artistic contributions in the so-called “tubes” of the former storage basement area, all dealing with the theme of light versus shadow. Some of these installations use light or sound to fill the unique architecture with new, artistic energy. Only adults will be admitted on guided group tours only.

Artists: Birgit Auf der Lauer und Caspar Pauli, Alexine Chanel, Janine Eggert und Philipp Ricklefs, Bodo Hartwig, Ulrich Vogl, Marc Klee

THE SINGER
Die Multimediale Installation erzählt die Geschichte einer Textilarbeiterin, die Lucky genannt wird. Die Frau lebt in Bangladesh und zwar in der informellen Siedlung Korai Bosti. The Singer macht am Beispiel von Lucky aufmerksam auf das Schattendasein von Menschen, dir für unsere Konsumgüter schwer arbeiten müssen, ohne sich ein menschenwürdiges Leben zu verdienen. Eine Textilarbeiterin aber bekommt eine Stimme, der wir konzentriert zuhören können.

OUT OF THE DARK
Eine Gruppenausstellung der besonderen Art präsentiert Installationen im 4. Untergeschoss der Kindl-Brauerei. Sechs künstlerische Positionen widmen sich in den sechs so genannten Tubes des ehemaligen Lagerkellers dem Thema Licht und Schatten. Zum Teil kinetische Licht- und Soundinstallationen füllen die außergewöhliche Architektur mit neuem, künstlerischem Leben. Zugang nur für Erwachsene im Rahmen einer Führung. Bitte achten Sie auf festes Schuhwerk!

Beteiligte Künstler*innen: Birgit Auf der Lauer und Caspar Pauli, Alexine Chanel, Janine Eggert und Philipp Ricklefs, Bodo Hartwig, Ulrich Vogl, Marc Klee

CSILLA K'S UNIVERSE / EXTRACT 28


ANNOUNCING: SHOW "CSILLA(S)*" / PUCCS CONTEMPORARY ART / BUDAPEST /



*Stars and Flowers
Opening on the 15th of June, Puccs Contemporary Art is showcasing two Berlin-based artists. The double feature will open with a book preview and installation by Alexine Chanel on June 15th, and is closely followed by an installation by Jörg Hasheider, opening on June 17th. Both artists, in radically different ways, are evoking the beauty and power of social practices.

Alexine Chanel focuses on the deeply spiritual practice of naming a child. A name gives a newborn baby an identity and a place in the world. In a manner, it is a prayer said over a new life, containing the soon-to-be parents' hopes about who the child will become and what they will accomplish. 
The name Csilla, or star - which also gives its title to Alexine Chanel's work - seems a shining example of parental hope and poetic power. Alexine Chanel takes a close look on the name and the named, the history, the life and the fate of individual Csillas.

Jörg Hasheider's installation "Gerbera" deals with the concepts of interaction and exchange, both fundamental for human development, in any given aspect. The flower "Gerbera" is very common to us, however it is,  much like massive amounts of fruits, vegetables and goods of all kinds brought to us from abroad, in this case from Africa. So the Gerbera appears as a fitting symbol and a concrete example of the positive energy contained in international trading, the exchange of thoughts and the human congregations involved in the process.


Neither story had a happy ending: the name Csilla is losing popularity and is on the verge of becoming "extinct". Gerberas are still very popular, but the people working for their production are, at least in some parts of society, not. Thus ignored, they die, excluded, behind bars.
