The beings in the universe are filled, in turn, like human barometers, with the stuff of the universe. This is as true for art as it is for the irreducibly complex systems and substances that constitute the weather.
Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick: The Weather in Proust
Swallow is delighted to invite you to “The Weather in Fred Sandback”, an exhibition imagined by Martin Ebner, Audrius Pocius and Ariane Müller and featuring works, music, and gestures by Eric D. Clark, Michèle Graf & Selina Grüter, Laura Kaminskaitė, Sebastian Luetgert, Robertas Narkus, Eleni Poulou & Hilary Jeffery, Ulla Rossek, Julia Scher, Valerie Stahl von Stromberg, Hannah Weinberger, Martin Ebner, and Ariane Müller.
“The Weather in Fred Sandback” is an exhibition conceived in the space between Berlin and Vilnius, and then in Venice and Kassel when we were able to meet again, in the bliss of restarting to talk and to plan. It is until now an unreal exhibition, with us trying to reassemble a world out of scattered parts, objects promised but lost—artworks in which we have encountered something real. The Weather in Fred Sandback strives to reconstruct the world out of sounds, gestures, customs, depictions and documents that we still have from it.
During the opening night, the visitors will be greeted with a reading performance by the iconic Eric D. Clark, the artist behind Whirlpool Productions’ “From Disco to Disco” as well as a performance entitled “Pedestrian” by Michèle Graf & Selina Grüter, embodied by Saulė Noreikaitė and Hanna Ijäs. Afterwards, we will be heading downstairs to Bar 2123 for a concert of “Organza Ray” a duo formed by Eleni Poulou, founder of “Noshe Noshe” and former keyboard player of the British band “The Fall”, and Hillary Jefferey, the trombone player of the celebrated contemporary music ensemble “zeitkratzer”. During the concert, the sounds of trumpet, trombone and bass will blend in with beats of electronic music. Finally, we will be closing the night dancing to the music selection by the legendary DJ Eric D. Clark.
