“From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.” Franz Kafka
A dialog between the two artists that turns into an installation, a collection of objects, videos, photographies, sounds and texts about the transformation of things. The show iniciates a time travel through personal memories, particularly those ones that pull you back and don't let you move forward. The elements of the exhibition, as gateway between past and present, become the symbols of a purifiying ritual.
On the occasion of the Berlin Art Week, from the 18th to the 20th of September 2015, Vesselroom Project in cooperation with Erratum Galerie will host in their premises the performative installationStendahl Labor by Carmen Loch (DE) which will take place as an unbroken continuation of the exhibition Point of No Return.
