#SaveTheDate24 November – 16 December 2022! HOLON is a new interdisciplinary format for research and play. Initiated by Berlin-based experience design company MONOMANGO, it uses virtual instruments to support knowledge transfer, and collaboration, and connect people between the virtual and physical spheres. The opening event will take place on 24 November 2022 and be on show to the public at selected times over the course of a month.
The format brings artists from different fields together to expand their work’s limits and explore new contexts. Their findings are documented and showcased at the end of each project period as a site-specific commission.
HOLON sets out to provide a stage for discussions and performances that shed light on new technologies and their environmental and social impact. As well as to understand how physical and virtual spaces can support our human experiences.
For more information about the opening event and exhibition, visit the HOLON website and its associated social media channels. There, you will find more information about the artists and themes.
In this particular site-specific installation between visual artist Maria Braune and multidisciplinary collaborators Hannelore Braisch and 11v151131_m06, the three artists dissolve, blossom and resemble each other’s works through HOLON’s physical and digital portals. Flowing forms, tentacles outstretched, Braune’s physical sculpture crawls into the interfaces of Braisch and 11v151131_m06’s virtual worlds where it develops, modifies and reappears optically on the other side. Like the transition from air to water, the artists compensate for what each cannot replace in both spheres, blurring the barriers between what is tangible.
