The exhibition Fathoms attempts to create a place where the various levels of reality can exist, a kind of sub-level, parallel but not quite visible „Nebenplatz“. Our brains are influenced by the constant technical advancements which happen all around us, and because of this the idea of a parallel universe is no longer purely conjectural but has become a constant of our everyday worlds.
That’s what it says on the press release anyway. I get confused at this kind of language, and I often wonder if I’m the only one. I mean, it’s great, but I have no idea what it actually means. I am however led to understand that the exhibition involves such things as a time loop involving a floating surfboard with possible face shapes shimmering in and out of existence, that it involves classical landscapes intruded on by UFOs, that it includes a video show called Submerged! which involves a variety of interpretations using various media of short stories which themselves spring from dreams dreamt.
Intrigued? Yeah, me too. The wonderful-sounding exhibition opens this Friday night at 9pm, with an after-party which kicks off at 10. Until 11 it’s free to get in, thereafter you have to pay. Although you don’t have to pay after all if you’ve won our two tickets to get into it.
Write to win at indieberlin.de if you’d like to win our pair of tickets to the exhibition and wild and crazy afterparty!
