In her sculptures and endurance-based performances, the artist Georgia Sagri references contemporary power structures, identity constructs, and codes of social behavior. With the aid of her body, she tests physical and spatial limits while laying bare political structures and societal norms: How do we live together? What do we believe in? How do we act?  What drives us? These are the questions the movements and forms of her works emerge from. By adapting and imitating familiar patterns, gestures, and rules, the artist portrays them and questions their logic and seeming naturalness.

With Georgia Sagri’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, the Kunstverein Braunschweig aims to offer an overview of her previous works. The architectural structure of the Villa Salva Hospes has set the tone for their selection and presentation. Duplications and repetitions guide the visitors’ movements through the space and create an active as well as contemplative site.

Georgia Sagri (b. 1979, Athens, Greece) lives and works in Athens. She studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts in Athens and Columbia University in New York. Her works have been shown in numerous international exhibitions, such as: documenta 14, Kassel and Athens (2017); Manifesta 11, Zürich (2016); at the Sculpture Center, New York (2015); at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2015); at the Museum for Modern Art, Warsaw (2014 and 2015), as well as the 14th Istanbul Biennale (2015), the Lyon Biennale (2013), and the Whitney Biennale, New York (2012). In 2014 she founded the Audio-Magazine FORTÉ as well as the curatorial project SALOON, and initiated the project space ΥΛΗ[matter]HYLE in Athens.

 

GUEST ROOM: Thanos Stathopoulos

Following the invitation of Georgia Sagri the Greek poet Thanos Stathopoulos (b. 1963, Athens, Greece) presents poems from his not yet published volume of poetry. The guest room becomes a platform for presentation of the so far internationally unknown oeuvre.
