:: :: Sculpture as Writing

Kirsten Palz: 100 works, Read by Erik Steinbrecher.
Sculpture as Writing 2007-2014,
a rakete.co publication /Distributed by Motto

Meine künstlerischen Arbeiten untersuchen einen erweiterten Skulpturbegriff. Das Verhältnis von Mensch und Raum ist zentrales Thema; der Raum ist Initial für die Ideenentwicklung, Ort der Interaktion zwischen Künstler und Betrachter, er ist das Feld des materiellen Eingriffs.

Der Werkkomplex „Sculpture as Writing“ an dem ich seit über 10 Jahren arbeite, strukturiert sich um ein Archiv, welches aus über 470 einzelnen „Manualen“, Choreographien, Skizzen und Kompositionen besteht. Meine eigenen Arbeiten wurden in Ausstellungen, Performances und Lesungen im In- und Ausland gezeigt.

Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Berlin.
8. March 2020 International women's day

Dear friends and colleagues,
On Sunday 8. March 2020 - on the International Women’s Day - A special Guest-editor and Kirsten Palz will host this year’s Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Berlin.
We will together on our laptops develop Wikipedia entries for women to be found on Wikipedia.
The idea is that we teach you how to be an editor of Wikipedia and that we all finish an entry on the night of the International Women's Day. 
The aim is to finish the entry that far that it can be published. Additional information can obviously be added later. For the ones of you who can find time beforehand, it would be great that you are already having an own account and editor-name. We are also encouraging participants to work in pairs on this evening and help each other.
Please reserve the date.
There are only 15 places – so please RSVP to k.palz@berlin.de or call 01634519699
Please bring with you a laptop, charger and ideas or even better a contribution to WIKI that you would like to load up to the web.


Art+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship. Last year, over 1,500 participants joined Art+Feminism’s second annual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at The Museum of Modern Art in New York and more than 75 satellite events around the world, resulting in the creation of nearly 400 new pages and significant improvements to 500 articles on Wikipedia—including articles about female artists, feminist artistic movements, and feminist scholarship.

„AMERICA IS DYING SLOWLY, SHE SAID“
30.10.-14.11.2020 SOLO_SHOW , By Kirsten Palz.


Künstler*innenmigration und -selbstverständnis in Beziehung zur Gesellschaft.

Die Reihe „AMERICA IS DYING SLOWLY?“ in Spor Klübü, Berlin, (13.08.-19.12.2020) beschäftigt sich mit dem Thema Künstler*innen-migration und -selbstverständnis in Beziehung zur Gesellschaft und zeigt Künstlerpositionen, die in ihrer Künstlerkarriere für ihr Weiterkommen Ortswechsel zwischen Deutschland und den USA, insbesondere zwischen New York City und Berlin vollzogen haben.

Das Projekt eruiert vor dem Hintergrund der künstlerischen Arbeiten Erzählungen über die Selbstverständnisse von Künstler*innen. Diese sollen Aufschluss darüber geben, wie die eigenen künstlerimmanenten Systeme im gesellschaftlichen Austausch mit Blick in die Zukunft und mit Hilfe einer Gegenwartsanalyse organisiert bzw. verändert werden können und welche Rolle dabei Anziehungspunkte wie große Kunstmetropolen spielen. Die Auswirkungen von transnational sich verändernden politischen und gesellschaftlichen Gegebenheiten werden in die Betrachtung mit eingeschlossen.
Zum Projekt erscheint ein gedrucktes Programmheft.

CURATORIAL WORK with CATHERINE CHRISTER HENNIX. Maerzmusik, 2017.
https://www.berlinerfestspiele.de
'Christer and I share a love for music, mathematics and the conceptual arts, our friendship has been such a gift.'
In 2016, I took contact to Christer with the wish to curate 'The Electric Harpsichord' (first performed in 1976 in Moderna Museet in Stockholm.)
'On Architecture as an Instrument' was written as part of the catalogue.
Kirsten Palz - curatorial work with Catherine Christer Hennix.

_______
Extract from catalogue-text, Maerzmusik, 2017.
Since the 1970s, Catherine Christer Hennix has conceived her sound compositions in close relation to the spatial environments in which they were performed. The architectural and acoustic qualities of a particular space thus form a principal element for the music and site-specific installations. This relation points to Hennix’s concept of sound as an immanent property of physical space, and her conception of it as an instrument that can be tuned and played. 

This notable characteristic of Hennix’s spatial consciousness combined with her interest in mathematics makes the Kuppelhalle in the former crematorium in Wedding a particularly interesting environment for the concert.

The Kuppelhalle is a unique vaulted space above an octagon-shaped floor plan covered with black stone tiling. The space has a surface area of 200 m2, is 17.0 m in height and is surrounded by two wraparound balconies formerly used to access a succession of wall cavities for urns.

For a period of seven days before the first concert on March 16th, 2017, the musicians, technicians and Catherine Christer Hennix herself will collectively fine tune space and composition. Fine-tuning and adjusting the sound during rehearsal is essential in interweaving the acoustics of the brass instruments, voice, computer programming and space. 

The Kuppelhalle will be set up for eight musicians, instruments, equipment for sound and projection and an audience to create a sensitive instrument involving musicians and listeners alike.
In Catherine Christer Hennix’s owns words: “My idea is that we become one instrument with the space”. 


Sound, therefore, becomes a quality of space rather than time.  (Kirsten Palz)

PROTOCOL SLOW LIGHT / 522928.03N/ 132444.50"E
Authored by ActA.
ActA is an artist collective founded by Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez and Kirsten Palz.

https://actaacta.com/
.

The protocol collects materials and records our process and discussions. It has been written in the studio parallel to our ongoing dialogue on making and being with sculptures.

All procedures and processes connected to Sculpture in four parts are entitled: Slow light.
Slow light principles determine this and all protocols that follow.
''When something is slow, it might be that one will be able to see it much later in time, - in a different time. Imagined is hereby a process that for the perceiver expands the time beyond the Now. Slow light affects the common practice of seeing, similar to the perception of a slowed down ray of light passing through water. The perception is fragmented over time.
Slow light installs temporal trajectories that lead from the present to the past and potential of later points in time. Like a constructed lens that conveys the Seen, a hundred years from now.''
PROTOCOL SLOW LIGHT / 522928.03N/ 132444.50"E can be ordered.

MOLTO with Rivane Neuenschwander, Knut Henrik Henriksen and Kirsten Palz. Curated by Caroline Eggel. MOLTO was shown 2011 at Artissima, Turin.
MOLTO is set up in a launderette in Turin and exploits an original curatorial modality. The idea, developed by Christian Frosi, Renato Leotta and Diego Perrone, is to “mount” a two-dimensional exhibition, entirely printed on a sheet, an exhibition where the works are paged by a software, according to the criteria formulated by the curators, but leaving plenty of room to the programme work and, necessarily, to chance.

‘Sculpture for friends’ in Ozean, Berlin. The performance ‘Sculpture for friends’ asked all guests to stand inside the garage-structure constituting the architectural space of Ozean. The route around the structure was timely documented by me beating various found materials and objects towards the three metallic walls and the one wood wall, while passing. The large metallic plates of the original 5 garages were hereby altered into a responsive sensor for movement - and a audio depiction of sculptural space.
