Opening: Margins for Madness, Undesirable Monuments

From Novem­ber 23rd to Novem­ber 30th, Sara Ham­dy turns the gal­le­ry Blech. Raum für Kunst Hal­le into a gar­den and radio space.

The instal­la­ti­on Mar­gins for Mad­ness, Unde­s­i­ra­ble Monu­ments is part of Hamdy’s ongo­ing rese­arch loo­king at the ways in which mad­ness and unrea­son are soci­al­ly con­struc­ted. How is mad­ness embo­di­ed and embed­ded in public space? For the artist, the simul­ta­ne­ous seclu­si­on and exte­rio­ri­ty of urban gar­dens are a meta­phor for what we call mad­ness.

On Satur­day, Novem­ber 23rd, at 6.30 pm, the space will be ope­ned with a live radio per­fora­mance. Plant lovers are invi­ted to bring their favou­rite, beau­ti­ful, sin­gu­lar green flat­ma­tes and let them be part of the instal­led gar­den.
