Stills Exhibition: Urban Reflections

Stills exhibition: Urban Reflections

Opening: Saturday 22 November 2008 6-8pm

Nina Fischer & Maroan el Sani (Germany), Dan Graham (USA), Sabine Hornig (Germany), Santu Mofokeng (South Africa), Rhona Warwick (Scotland). Curated by Kirsten Lloyd and Christine Nippe

Warped, fragmented and endlessly repeated. Responses to the urban experience have ranged from unbridled enthusiasm for these vibrant hubs of glittering prosperity to examinations of the psychological shadows of city living: alienation, anxiety, tension and fear. The current age of 'global cities' is marked by new geographies and social relations moulded by advancing technologies and economic systems. How do contemporary artists respond to these conditions? Urban Reflections presents works by artists from across different generations and locations as they reflect literally and metaphorically on the theme of mirroring the city.

Saturday 22 November 2008 6-8pm Exhibition Opening: Urban Reflections FREE
Join us to celebrate the launch of Urban Reflections on Saturday evening. The afterparty will be held at Wasabi Disco from10pm at Sneaky Pete's in the Cowgate (free admission).

Sunday 23 November 2pm - 3pm Artist Talk: Sabine Hornig FREE
An opportunity to hear the artist Sabine Hornig discuss her practice, coffees and cakes will be served.

Sabine Hornig's images of vacant storefronts reflect Berlin's city landscape into interior spaces, troubling visual perception and exploring the shifting relationships between humans and the urban context. Subtle tricks of scale result in a blurring of the boundaries between photography, sculpture and architecture while the works themselves - positioned in an indeterminate zone between reality and image - are infused with a sense of the uncanny.
