BREATH ing HEART Filmscreening and Artist Talk
Please join us for the documentary about the Art Installation BREATH ing HEART followed by an artist talk. The film shows the current work of the Berlin based artist Johanna Keimeyer which debuted at Art Basel June 2017. The documentary (production by David Kettner, Picsters) premiered at Spektrum, SoHo House Berlin and at Spring Studios NYC in 2017.
Keimeyer installed a giant heart with 10 meter diameter in a historical water filter in Basel. The vault was staged as the interior of the visitor’s own body. Artificial oversized lung alveoli, vein-like light installations and spatially wandering sounds of music, heartbeat and breath created a space where one could focus on one‘s inner being. Keimeyer invited the audience to enter the breathing heart, lie down and listen to their own breath and heartbeat. Even an evocative scent was developed for the heart.
Artist collaboration with:
Kling Klang Klong: Sound Konzept mit Komposition
STUDIOLO Farbraum: Lichtprogrammierung
Lux Imago: Fotografie / Dokumentation
“I would like to give people the experience to confront and feel themselves“, – the artist said.
“If it were possible to enter into an analogue heart, it could serve as a trigger for many people to finally go within themselves. Johanna Keimeyer already made this turnaround…“ – Porky, musician (Deichkind)
The heart in numbers: 75 cubic meters, 70 helpers, 250 kg plastic, 7 days set-up, 12 sponsors.
