Laying in a bed above a bar, I was told about the owner of that bar, how he would bang his fists on the tables quite regularly, it seems to be a professional thing.

Next day I was wondering why Monika kept calling me a phlegmatic, but a good one as she insisted, maybe that’s why:

On Saturday artist Monika Frycova was my guest and gave us an entertaining lecture on her projects, starting with a soundingstring performance

To the moped that took her from Iceland to Portugal to bring salted Bacalhau from the north to the south and the two Trabis she converted into a Trabilimo

And much later a nightly skype talk with her Icelandic Brotherhood friends

Jennifer Bennett took extended trips through Central and North America and dug for native clay in places as distinct as Medellin and Detroit. The resulting sculptures differed in color and texture due to their varying geological properties. The history of earth is inextricably linked with the most recent contemporary history. The strangely archaic ceramic bars and frames remind one of chemical models of geological structure grids or modern-day socio-scientific organigrams. Communication and social contexts, early and recent history, geology.

The sculptures are part of a series named “Stands on All Sides.” Inviting tricks of the mind, the ceramic objects function as a double or joker, like a plug that can be plugged in any direction. How many turning axes does the object have? How many levels of symmetry? Its legs stretch out towards all points of the compass. It’s a multi-point connection – a creature like a cat that always falls onto its clay feet. Its feet are painted – like varnished toenails or stained-glass socks – enamel.

“Being Home” is Jennifer Bennett’s second exhibition at Galerie Dorothea Schlueter. The artist will be in-residence at the gallery during the time of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be held at two locations simultaneously, as “Go Discuss: The Artist Comes to have Lunch” opens the same evening just a few hours later in Galerie Oel-Früh.
