Exhibition statement: The exhibition at the Crematorium Lilienthalstraße

7 showcases all artists’ works around the theme “The Peculiarities of

Khôra”. Khôra is an ancient Greek word coined by Plato as a term for

space, receptacle or site. He proposed that Khôra is a space that holds

no characteristics in itself, it cannot permanently contain anything but

bodiless, ephemeral, time based media and simply reflects the character

of the medium passing through. It is interpretable as a darkened room

unknown to a spectator, into which he/she is brought, deprived of

sensory input. To sensibly and intelligibly explore this space from

within, an observer can interpret the reflections of sounds, light and

shadow to grasp the room, its size and architectural geometry. The topic

was approached individually by each project member. The developed

strategies and methods aim to deliberately articulate the room and

emphasize its peculiarities in an individual artistic manner. The

exhibited works explore the cuboid space on several levels of perceptual


I am looking forward to seeing you.

All the best,
