Introducing this show of a somewhat mysterious title with a fragment from Graham Harman's "On Vicarious Causation" might refer to both inevitability of thinking through objects and duality of such thoughts.

Artist list

Barbora Jamrichová, Triin Kukk, Merlin Meremaa, Kun Zhang
Since the Objects belong to the realm of the real they are constantly escaping us. We cannot do anything but keep on training our sensory apparatus to distance from itself. The act of sensory perception is the never-ending story of the vital, like two ends of one piece that never meet each other although they are connected permanently. Meanwhile the transient refers to border territories of matter and its nature, of life and nonlife. Even the strongest can be fragile.
What are these spaces in between, are they only given to our instrumental use or is there a mutual poetics exchange revolving around the properties of objects?

About the artists:

Kun Zhang is a Chinese object artist based in Germany. Her work is based on materializing internal desires through “planning” and “following”, she believes that the final form will present the unconscious will of the maker. She gained her BfA and MfA degree in Gemstone and Jewellery at the University of Applied Science Trier, Campus Idar-Oberstein. Her works are displayed in various exhibitions since 2016 and have won prizes in the field of Jewellery and Sculpture, including Marzee Graduate Prize 2018, Perron-Kunstpreis (promotion prize) 2019.

Barbora Jamrichová is a jewellery artist based in Bratislava, Slovakia. She completed her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (MFA), with exchange studies at the Hochschule Düsseldorf and the Hochschule Trier, Idar-Oberstein Campus. Her work examines the illusory and conceptual potential of the mutual relationship between materials and objects, projecting it in the final form as an idea, tension or doubt. Her pieces have been selected for several international group exhibitions including Talente 2019Legnica Jewellery Festival, Melting Point and Constellation in Pinakothek der Moderne.
