Preview of the exhibition “Notizen aus Stein” (notes made of stone) at BauSchau Essen.
The exhibition will display their first collaborative work of Arisa Purkpong and Jana Buch. It connects various narratives and points of interest, such as their engagement with films by (female) directors of the 1960’s and 70’s, as well as the question of how mythological women and their depiction are still present in our current society, both linguistically as well as ideologically, subtle or overtly as references.
The video collage intertwines images, sounds and narratives, such as sequences that were filmed during the work with the “Friends of Women Foundation” organization in Thailand to connect these with images of the Düsseldorf copy of the sculpture of Perseus holding the head of Medusa.
The artists focus on narratives partly forgotten that still influence assumptions in today’s society and hope to reduce their impact.
