Grass Harp, formally a brief series of exhibitions in an apartment in Wedding, re-initiates itself as a facilitator of informal artistic experiences and intimate social gatherings. 

A small private studio space in a former print-works, temporarily vacated, provides an unlikely setting for a conglomeration of small scale works by roughly 30 artists and friends. Bringing small objects together in a small room at the end of a corridor, suggests for us something akin to the amateur collection. If not an anonymous archive, perhaps an index of micro-events and everyday occurrences, championing the overlooked, sometimes with a hint of humour, and often with a subtle poetics at play.

Beginning with a few small works in our own humble collection, the idea promptly turned outwards to the many people we find a connection to through our practices. Like any group show the individual works can be taken as single events referring to a wider context (whether artist/originator or subject/cultural surroundings) which in turn form unexpected dialogues. We like to think of these fragments also as a simple working methodology in itself, one that gathers both people and objects together and lets things speak of their own materiality and essence.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a booklet edition of related images from each artist. Depictions of the exhibited artworks will be in the form of a sticker collection, which can be added to the booklet as one chooses.

During the opening, at 8:30pm visitors will be led by a performance by Daniel Kupferberg, back down the corridor, out across the yard and into the garden area at the back of the building complex. There we will continue the second part of the evening with further works installed between the trees.
As in all Grass Harp events, food and drinks will be provided and visitors are encouraged to relax and sit a while with the works.

Grass Harp is delighted to have the rare opportunity to present the work of Antony Hall, an artist and furniture maker currently living in rural Sussex, in the south of Britain. His work employs simple geometric designs - which he describes as "functional" - often incorporates pattern, and an acute materiality which simultaneously suggests both an organic formation and an elusive handmade process. 
He works between painting and sculpture (often through and as part of a drawing process) and within each practice there remains a tension between the 2d and 3d worlds which he habitually draws on. Diverse influences can be registered, from modernist furniture and Bauhaus pattern to early abstract painting and outsider design yet the overall effect is perhaps nearer to some kind of hand-made museum of natural history, an invented 'natural science' of sorts that champions the simple pleasures of making, collecting and living among selective objects as part of daily life. His small scale sculptures often appear fragile and at the same time embody a certain solidity, sometimes being carved from a single piece of wood, playing with the idea of gravity, image, scale, with a deceptively simple form. 

For the exhibition at Grass Harp, Antony will present a selection of all new, small scale sculptures, alongside a special edition box, which refers directly to the making and cataloguing of these items, as well as including an even-smaller version of one sculptural element, like a sample piece or offshoot.

Archiv-outsourcing auf rutschigem Grund   
mit Materialbeständen von Dieter Lunt und Daniel Kupferberg
zu Gast: Theda Weber-Lucks & Alice Escher

Donnerstag 29. Juni, 19.30 Uhr
f.b event 

Das Werkstatt-Gespräch ist Teil der Ausstellung Grass Harp 002 Daniel Kupferberg - Speicher: und wird wird in deutscher Sprache geführt.

Wenn Sie an diesen privaten Veranstaltungen teilnehmen möchten, melden Sie sich bitte für unsere Mailingliste auf unserer Website an oder kontaktieren Sie uns unter: 

Nachlässe aus dem Tresor, Paralleluniversen, Weitergang 

Als Ausgangspunkt schauen wir uns Auszüge aus dem Nachlass von dem bildenden Künstler Dieter Lunt (1967-2008) an, der über Jahre mit Theda Weber-Lucks befreundet gewesen ist: Unveröffentlichte und für die Welt bislang unzugängliche Skizzenbücher aus dem Tresor. Was könnte die Nachwelt damit anstellen? Daraus folgen viele weitere offene Fragen: Die Sperrigkeit des Mediums - wie kann sie ausgestellt werden, wie vermittelt? Gibt es Wege über die “gängige” Praxis, im Stile von Best Of Cobain-Faximiles, hinaus diese Bücher zugänglich zu machen? Was ist dieses Format, welches konventioneller Weise zwischen zwei Buchdeckeln sich ausspielt, überhaupt? Und wie hängt das alles zusammen mit Themenkomplexen die auch in der aktuellen Ausstellung Speicher: allgemein als offene Bearbeitungsfragen in den Raum gestellt werden: Archiv, Prozess, Werkzeug, Digitalisierung, Überschreibung, Transkription, Gesamtwerkkonzepte, usw.? 

Neben Theda Weber-Lucks (multidiszipläre und experimentell-forschende Musikwissenschaftlerin und Musikpädagogin (2008 Dissertation über vokale Performancekunst)/zwischendurch Brezelbäckerin und Kulturverantalterin in Quebéc (2008-2014)/Leiterin des Fachbereichs Neue Musik and der Leo Kerstenberg Musikschule in Berlin) ist für das Gespräch Alice Escher eingeladen, eine berliner Künstlerin die in Performances, Videos und Hörspiele u.a. mit Sprache, experimentelle Vermittlung und idiosynkratische Gedankenvernetzungen arbeitet.

Der Raum ist leider nur bedingt Rollstuhlzugänglich.


The Slipperyness of Archival Outsourcing  
with material stocks of Dieter Lunt and Daniel Kupferberg special guests: Theda Weber-Lucks & Alice Escher

Thursday 29th June, 7.30pm
f.b event 

The workshop-talk is part of the exhibition Grass Harp 002 Daniel Kupferberg - Speicher: and will be in German.

Estates from the Vault, Parallel Universes, Proceedings 

As a starting point, we will have a look at outtakes of the estate of the visual artist Dieter Lunt (1967-2008), a long time friend of Theda Weber-Lucks: So far unpublished and inaccessible sketch books from the vaults. What ways could the afterworld approach this? Several open questions follow: The medium is bulky - how can one exhibit it, how to mediate it? Could there be ways of making these books accessible beyond the “established” practice of making Best of Cobain-style faximiles? What is this format, which conventionally takes places between two book covers, in the first place? And how is this all connected to the wealth of thematic webs which also are being questioned in the current exhibition of Speicher: — archive, process, tool, digitalisation, over-writing, transcription, concepts of gesamtwerk, etc.? 

Joining our guest Theda Weber-Lucks (multidisciplinary and experimentally researching musicologist and music teacher (dissertation on vocal performance art 2008)/from 2008-2014 brezel maker and cultural event organiser in Quebéc/currently head of the department of New Music at the Leo Kerstenberg School of Music, Berlin) is Alice Escher, an artist residing in Berlin who in performances, videos and audio pieces works with language, experimental mediation and idiosyncratic thought-interlinking.

Unfortunately the space is only partially wheel chair accessible
