_ MATERIAL TURN
A dreamscape where upon entering the space, you witness the close encounter of two unyielding forms leaning against each other: Melitta Baumeister and Paul Jung.
The installation is an extended temporality, where fashion imagery, garments and materials resist formal interpretation.
Through a cinematographic mechanism of thoughts, Baumeister Jung use sequences of emptiness and content, a mise-en-scene between the virtual and the actual _ processing materiality. These sequences, presented in various media, question the objectified properties of the process and place the audience interpretation and experience center stage. You are taken on a journey that goes beyond material forms.
It becomes personal, immaterial, a crude touch _ the identifiable metalanguage of Baumeister Jung collaboration.
This installation follows the publication of the book entitled Material Turn by publishers ...,staat, Supermarché and Baumeister Jung.
