The Weitere Weiterreichung

The Weitere Weiterreichung @Kunstquartier Bethanien,

About the Show in Link Below



Berlin is on deborahsp.wordpress.com

Collaborated Work by Akiko Wakayama And Dimple B Shah Curated By Deborah S Philips 

The further handover

in the project room (ground floor) and in the Druckwerkstatt / kulturwerk GmbH (1st floor) in the Kunstquartier Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2

Vernissage (on 2 floors) at 7 p.m.

Productive communication between artists takes place here through the further development of prints as an initial idea.

Artists who work with printmaking techniques often pass on their work to colleagues, so that the following person continues the next step with their artistic handwriting. This approach has a long tradition and is also known as "Corps exquisite". This is about a process of communication both between artists in different countries and printing techniques as well as the resulting works of art. There are limits everywhere, including on the sheet of paper that serves as a medium for artistic printing. What happens if a second print from another authorship is added to the first on the same sheet? Are important boundaries of artistic autonomy exceeded here? Or is there a dialogue, conscious or unconscious in nature?

This idea is being taken further in the project room: from 19 to 22 September there are installations and performances that embody this idea. Works on paper can be seen at Druckwerkstatt / kulturwerk GmbH (1st floor) until November 29.

Survival and Coexistence

For Bio-Network Event on 15th of May 2020 

Performance During Lockdown

The proposed project is a response to the Covid19 pandemic situation. This project is to understanding and decoding social singular body in the context of Nature and ecology and changing the social setup in the pandemic period it is a triangular tie-up, where every individual and artist are left to be alone in isolation (Quarantined). Humans are social being and during this period we have to maintain social distancing and isolation and lonely time it creates a psychological problem. We are not used to staying without socializing. We are coming in terms of our existence and are confronting our mistake and exploitation of nature the imbalance created and destruction of our whole ecosystem. We are trying to understanding the cause of this pandemic and how to fight this. We already broke the rules of Nature and the ecosystem. We failed to understand the importance of our coexistence of other living beings. The world is changed for us; we have lost our freedom to unknown things.

Stainless Steel Nirvana -Path to Atmanirbharta

This performance was part of 'The Nest' a group exhibition presented by Anant Art and curated by Aditi Ghildiyal. 12th June to 10th July 2020 

‘Isolation’ and ‘repetition’ have been considered instrumental in the path towards achieving nirvana. Surprisingly, the global pandemic we are faced with has compelled us to immerse ourselves in this path. Isolated from the world, we are living in our 'nests' that have become protective sanctuaries for us. The act of cleaning– ourselves, our house, clothes, or utensils– has become a ritualistic practice. This time has brought us closer to our conscience, giving us an opportunity to introspect our thoughts and actions. The performance, ‘Stainless Steel Nirvana- Path of Atmanirbhar,' by Dimple Shah, will be a part of the upcoming exhibition ‘The Nest’ curated by Aditi Ghildiyal. This is the artist’s effort to portray an uncanny intermingling of circumstances in recent times. The artist's approach towards her art practice has been very profound, often taking weeks of research to compose her performances. This project has been an outcome of several discussions and brainstorming sessions that took place over the weeks and we dearly hope you will enjoy viewing it as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

This was a performative video act for the camera during the lockdown period done for ‎

In_process Open source‎ to Room of Thought (24th - 26th April 2020)

Home quarantined an experiment to involve oneself in childhood memory freedom and spending time. It is also creating a quarantine enclosed space where one has a conversation with oneself with minimal things around and activities when one does, is to measure the area of space both physical and psychosocial state of mind and in silence. It is both a positive and negative experience. Where one can find ecstasy in solitude and also one finds depressive in loneliness This is a performance which talks about silent soliloquy in an enclosed 193 inches of Space.

A Laboratory for Survival (Performance During Lockdown)

performative act for the camera which was done for a series of

Coronavirus Artpocalypse_ The Art World Responds - 

Part 2 by Waswo Waswo X Artists series

This work was down during the Lockdown period in March and my reaction as performance artists acting as Virologist, Studying oneself as a body in the time of COVID 19.    I created the whole lab space in the Living room with all my collection of laboratory jars. It was a metaphoric representation to understand the invisible virus and how one could fight with it there different psychological state where I am trying to breathe through my hand gloves and almost feeling breathlessness and taking it to a terrace where I am getting wrapped in food wrapping foil again to protect my body but a paradoxical act where I  feel suffocated and breathlessness and finally the maketh the positive act of burning a maketh of coronavirus and turning it to ashes it very surreal and abstract imagination of virologist. 

The Appearance of the Dark Matter (Performance during Lockdown Period)

This work is a performative act for a camera which was done to celebrate world performance day in isolation organized by 

Beyond Belfast performance group Same Difference – Equinox to Equinox.
22 March 2020

This was the work when lockdown had started in March and my reaction to this coronavirus this is like an alchemist who is seeing a reflection in magical water made out of turmeric and lime water slowly changing the color in orange and then blood-red a mirror of future there melting candle drops which forms an image of virus metaphorical representation making it visible through this act and I do small act holding a toy gun in the forehead that this is suicidal what we have humans have created. I am also wearing a mask with needles and holding a doll which is us who become a mute spectator (a puppet) of what's unfolding now. It is a metaphoric expression to the present state.
