Hlynur Hallsson | Jenny Michel
01.04. - 13.06.2021
The Kasseler Kunstverein has brought together two artists for "abandoned stories" whose works could hardly be more different on the surface, but who combine to create an exciting and stimulating exhibition. Hallsson and Michel work with the supposed claim to absoluteness of what is written - political statements, theoretical edifices or more personal assessments, but without fuelling the current "fake news" discussion. Instead, text and image or text as image are combined in new and surprising ways, poetically combined, and the artists allow new contexts, references and connections to emerge from the fragments.
