FEATURING

Theo Eshetu

AT

Millerntor Gallery #4

29 – 31 May 2014

 

 

Ethiopian artist Theo Eshetu lives and works in Rome and Berlin. His works have been shown at the Venice Film Festival, the London Film Festival, the New York African Film Festival, the 2nd Video Biennial in Fukui, Japan, and many more. His films have won numerous awards, for example at the Berlin Video Festival, the International African Film Festival in Milan or the Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto. Eshetu has exhibited at the ICA, London, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the National Gallery of Canada, the Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin and the National Gallery of Cape Town, South Africa among others. In 2011 his works were shown at the Sharjah Biennial and the Venice Biennale. In 2012 Theo Eshetu was a guest of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program.

In January 2014, The Return of the Axum Obelisk, (2009), was shown as a 15-screen video installation at Berlin’s DAAD Galerie, after having first been presented at BOZAR, Brussels. Shown here in its single-channel version, the film chronicles the repatriation of a monumental war trophy from Rome to Ethiopia and the religious ceremonies that surrounded its resurrection. Eshetu shows the return of the “Roman” Axum Obelisk to Ethiopia more than 70 years after Mussolini had it shipped to Italy as spoils of war. Building on his own film documentation of this extraordinary incident of restitution, Eshetu has created an elaborate work whose compositional complexity honors the historical complexity of its subject. Unlike most monuments that are built to consolidate and commemoration a given event, the exceptional characteristic of the Axum obelisk has been its unique capacity to change significance with the course of history.

This screening marks the first step in a future collaborative initiative between MOMENTUM and Viva Con Agua in Ethiopia which will engage local artists an enable them to create new works to benefit their communities and to be shown internationally.

Besides the air we breathe, water is the most fundamental source of life. Water creates life, water is life. Water means healthy living, happy living. For Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli this is the primary motivation for the funding and implementation of water projects around the world in order to enable people to access clean water.

 

Millerntor Event Logo

 

The MILLERNTOR GALLERY #4 occupies the football stadium of the FC St. Pauli in Hamburg. For three days, the stadium transforms into a public art project that provides an arena for creative engagement, intercultural dialogue and an exchange with the urban collective. The main objective of this hybrid event is in support of international NGO Viva con Agua, whose aim is to raise funds in order to support clean drinking water and sanitation initiatives, as well as to raise awareness of the lack of available clean drinking water in many countries of the global South.

The MILLERNTOR GALLERY #4 is a unique project that combines art and social commitment. Starting as a 4-day vernissage, it then turns into the first permanent social art gallery in a football stadium: The stadium of the FC St. Pauli.

Performance Series for Month of Performance Art (MPA-B)

May 4, 11, 18, 25, June 1 & 15


 

SUNDAY 25 MAY at 17:00 – 18:00

THOMAS ELLER, THE white male complex (endgames)
 

THE white male complex (endgames) is the working title of a series of art works, performances and talks by artist, curator Thomas Eller, in which he navigates the cultural plateau we have all entered in the West. With little chance for change we are collectively engaged in re-spelling the vocabulary developed by artists generations in the past 40 years – a conservative approach to progress resulting in endless artistic endgames. At PANDAMONIUM he puts this approach in stark contrast with a group of media artist from Shanghai largely unencumbered by such deliberations.

Qiu Anxiong, Finite Element
 

Finite ElementA work-in-progress developed specially for MOMENTUM’s ‘Works on Paper II’ performance series during Berlin’s Month of Performance Art. PANDAMONIUM’s artist in residence, Qiu Anxiong, embarks on an experiment to explore new, uncharted territory in his artistic practice. For the first time in his oeuvre, Anxiong will combine video with live performance and animated paper cut-outs, all overlaid to create a surreal contemporary re-invention of the traditional Chinese art of Shadow Theatre. Projected onto a screen resembling the form of classical Chinese scrolls, the traditional medium of paper is here re-imagined and animated with moving images and moving bodies.
