Expelled from Earth

A world is a world is a world. Exhibition by Jan Berger and Jaakko Myyri.

17 Jan till 13 Feb 2023

How do societal worldings constitute the understanding of the self within a grand epic? In Jan Berger’s work High Seat, images of terraformed topologies are conflated with narrative snippets that allude to the making of cultural policies, their semantics, and subjectivities within their respective Western cultural world-frames.

Myyri’s sculptural ceiling works Gully-body/Aeolia-body play a constant loop of rainy day gifs: an image subject that is most commonly shared online as a backdrop to show poetic grief, personal yearnings, or the need for ‘a break from everything’. Myyri uses the object of a fan to both emphasise the need of machines and humans alike to cool and process, as well as the geodesic onset to communicate intimate narratives in complex environments.

Welcome to selected proofs of 30 years working in the Netherlands: drawing, painting, video, stones & one work to take part in...

In hundreds of very small, or very huge drawings Hermelinde Hergenhahn explores human hopes and fears, with relentless humor and ambiguity. Her writings, films and installations in public space transform these anxieties from the private to the very public arena of everyday life. She describes her approach as of a Critical Nearness in contrast to the term Critical Distance in postwar philosophy of the Frankfurt School.

Hanna Hrabarska
Ukrainian artist in residence on place, time and her continuing journey as a ‘war refugee’

8 till 11 Dec 2022

WG Artist in residence Hanna Hrabarska from Kyiv made Amsterdam her temporary home after escaping the war in Ukraine. In this exhibition, presenting photography and texts, she reflects on how the history of her country transforms into her own life and destiny.

Since leaving Ukraine with her mother, Hanna Hrabarska has documented her own journey as a ‘war refugee’; and what it means to set up ‘home’ elsewhere, distanced from her homeland which continually is present in her life. Being ‘artist in residence’ in a foreign county makes her question what it means to be ‘in residence’, as well as what it means to be an artist. Her story and her work, like her personal journey is ongoing.

Hanna Hrabarska (1986) is a Ukrainian photographer, artist, journalist and teacher. Before the war, she was running a small portrait studio in the center of Kyiv and touring around the world with music bands and techno DJs.  She has established herself as a freelance photographer, photojournalist and documentary artist.  She is passionate about telling stories through the photographic image.

The exhibition ‘Ongoing’ is a itself a memory, accumulated throughout the years of living in the constantly changing historical landscape of Ukraine. Unlike some of her other, much more intimate photography projects, Hanna Hrabarska images present a bigger picture of Ukraine in time and space — from 2014 till now, from the eastern city Kryvyi Rih to Mali Selmentsi on the Slovakian border. The journey nearly always leads through Kyiv — a central place in a history of Ukraine and the heart of her personal life; and now the epicentre of Europe and the entire world. Her story and her work, like her personal journey is on-going.

Artist talk: puntWG will host an artist presentation and interview on Friday December 9th (17:30 hrs) where her photographs and other works become starting points for further dialogues. Hanna Hrabarska has asked Michiel Schwarz to moderate the conversation.

Hanna Hrabarska’s WG residency is supported by the Dutch Fund for Ukrainian artists, Mondriaan Fund and airWG.
