Victor Payares
Victor Payares uses layers of various paint languages that combine the haptic physicality of mark making together with archeology, sand, and palimpsest for his artistic practice. Architecture, meteorology, and spatial analysis are reappearing references in his work in which he often materializes recollections of his childhood in Cuba into new arrangements and convictions.

Victor studied at the Art Institute, Miami International University of Art & Design, at the Royal College of Art, London, and is a current participant of the Berlin Program for Artists (BPA).

HANNAH HALLERMANN (HAHA)
In her multidisciplinary work, Hannah Hallermann combines clear, essential forms with complex social issues.

"When we are confronted with two options, we tend to conclude that there must consequently be a right and a wrong answer. Hannah’s works challenge this assumption, playing with the paradoxical and by allowing different thoughts and forces to compete with each other without a winner having to be decided... In her installation Agent (2021), built-up tension can be relieved through a process of collective decision-making. The interactive “experiment structure” consists of a taut carbon bow connected to an electronic device. On a display, visitors are invited to answer a question concerning the possibility of social change. If a critical majority opts for one answer or the other, the machine fires and an arrow becomes the physical messenger of a decision. Agent combines the notion of an autonomous machine with the power of human thinking and the decision-making process."
- Text excerpt: Saskia Trebing, from Tools and Tales for Transformation, Hatje Cantz

Hannah now questions "ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH YOUR DECISION?", which seems to be at the center of her artistic practice. She makes in fact each (edition) piece unique, by shooting the blue butcher's curtain with her bow and arrow multiple times. Aiming at "YOU" and "SATISFIED" as the primal target, human error or precision remain as the final mark.

Are you satisfied with your decision?, 2022

MIRIAM KONGSTAD

Miriam Kongstad’s piece We Say This Rose Is Beautiful But When This Rose Is Destroyed This Rose Is Ugly Or This Rose Is Clumsy We Say forms a delirious network of emojis, frozen bodies and cowboy aesthetics, while a refrain of violence and anger, sedated by sex appeal, PR strategies, entertainment, and two-dimensional smiles penetrate the piece. The title of the work, engraved into the piece itself, is borrowed from a poem for one of Kongstad’s performances, offering an example of how she uses poems, rhymes and text to offset and augment the visual worlds she creates in her works.

Original location: Kunsthal Charlottenborg + train stations and bus stops all over Denmark - project info

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Lemn Sissay
