The works in ÜBERleben take on a series of scenarios in which (retro)active myths of the Gothic are used as exercises of ideological critique. Whether we speak of psychological terror or graphic horror, the Gothic has always functioned in relation to its cultural context, exhuming fears, visualizing anxieties, or dealing with unresolved dilemmas already present in society. With details that reference 13th century Gothic architecture, the exhibition structure places the artworks in and around a series of polygonal chambers that were conceived using a technique of pentagrammatic triangulation.

In this gothic land of zombies, vampires and other monsters where social moods of stagnation, depression, anxiety, emptiness and inactivity are controlled by the boundlessness of consumption, the artworks present a vigorous need for survival. Überleben (survival, over-life) implies a certain in-between state, a state that perhaps lies between life and death while at the same time being 'over life', maybe even outside of it - a controlled 'survival' going out of control.

opening hours: Tue-Fri 2-7pm, Sat 11am-7pm
