More on ‘MAIN BODY’:
Sally von Rosen’s solo exhibition at Trauma Bar und Kino comprises a substantial pyramid-like structure constructed from 57 abstract, headless bodies, delicately balanced atop one another. These headless forms interlock like puzzle pieces, revealing bones that appear to meld into each other’s frames, culminating in a single, grand skeletal sculpture: the main body. This static presentation unfolds upon a black square, serving as the stage for this ritualistic-like assemblage, whose precise purpose remains ambiguous. Five artworks, evoking the visual language of Hieronymus Bosch, stand sentinel around the installation. Bosch, the twisted pyramid, the enigmatic black square – all symbolically encapsulate a novel fusion that materializes as something recognizable yet alien, both ancestrally ancient and forward-looking.
Curated by Juliet Kothe and Madalina Stanescu with reproductions of five drawings by Hieronymus Bosch with the kind permission of Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin. The exhibition is part of Berlin Art Week’s special program ”BAW Featured”.
