9th March – 24th March
Johanna van der Linden & Gabriel Mello
Hold is the first collaboration between Johanna van der Linden and Gabriel Mello. The installation explores the ambiguous process of recording the relationship between gravity and the corporeal. The body is deconstructed and revered through objects, traces and documentary. Mello’s sculpture records the trauma of weight on and against the body. Scattered in the space, these castings alter the navigation of the living body. van der Linden’s prints respond as the inverse of Mello’s work, existing as traces of the absent body. The corporeal is invoked through a reminder of the place it was. This is documented through the ritual of waking, leaving and recording.
