Pressetext

„Mai Thai University“ ist die Inszenierung einer subversiven „Dichterakademie“ im Berlin Kreuzberg des Jahres 2010. Alle Personen dieser 48-stündigen Inszenierung entstammen dem Umfeld Keren Cytters und Ihrer Performance Gruppe Dance International Europe (D.I.E.) Now Company.

Die Ausstellung in der Berliner Galerie Christian Nagel zeigt eine Dokumentation dieser Vorkommnisse sowie die neueste Videoarbeit von Keren Cytter „Konstruktion“, in der diese auf Filmebene sublimiert werden.

Das gesprochene Wort geht über in Dichtung, der dichterische Text verwandelt sich in Bilder. Ein poetischer und konzeptuell anspruchsvoller Berlin-Film mit ästhetisch einprägsamen Bildern und einem Rhythmus, der nicht nur die Sprache und die Bewegungen der beteiligten Personen durchdringt sondern auch deren Blicke auf die sorgfältig gewählten Umgebungen und Objekte.

 

„Mai Thai University“ is a staged subversive poets academy in Berlin/Kreuzberg in the year 2010 and background for Keren Cytter’s new video work. All participants of this 48-hour happening belong to the closer environment of Keren Cytter and her performance group Dance International Europe (D.I.E.) Now Company.

The exhibition in our Berlin gallery shows a documentation of this happening as well as Keren Cytter’s video Konstruktion, for which the artist sublimated and transformed the occurrences into a film.

Spoken words transform into poetry, the poetical text transforms into images. Konstruktion is a composed and conceptually sophisticated Berlin-film with aesthetically catchy images and a rhythmic structure that permeates not only speech and movements of the participants but also their glances on the carefully chosen surroundings and objects.

The ceremony will be hosted by the established writer and filmmaker Tim Blue. After the ceremony the students and their friends will be given the chance to celebrate with a shot of Absinthe.
