    studio view, Berlin

    2015 / 2016

    Stella Geppert’s recently developed installation “Hieroglyphendecke” (hieroglyph blanket) is a work about communication and encounters. It records unconscious and transient movements of the head – the lines thus created densify into a structure. The visitors of the exhibition are part of the installation and their actions bring forth artistic work. The “Encyclopaedia of dialogues” in which the drawings are archived renders visible the qualities and intensity of the recorded movements, and thereby also the relations of the people, in a further step.
