April 1st- 7th 2016
Konigsbrucker Strasse 6a, 01099, Dresden, Germany
In collaboration with Gallery EX14 and kindly supported by The Henry Moore Foundation, Captain Lightfoot presented their newest project Strange Loop in Dresden Germany in April 2016. Strange Loop is a group exhibition of new site specific works by the collectives three founders, Anneli Holmstrom, Emma Pratt and Kadie Salmon alongside the Dresden based artist Maximilian Stühlen.
Strange Loop, explored the concept of symbolism and narrative in relation to sculptural form. The focus was on the individual object: exploring the shifting narrative structures present within sculptures and their occupied space. To do this the artists consider how the assemblage and alteration of physical components within an artwork affects and distorts its inherent symbolic components. Like words in a sentence, that when reshuffled, form new meanings, the show strives for a curatorial device to examine the transient state of narrative in relation to the sculptural form itself: by means of a physical process.
The new works of each artist were reassembled daily over the course of the exhibition, inviting viewers to re-visit the shifting works and forge new readings from each new alteration. These daily changes were recorded digitally as well as compiled film footage which was screened in Gallery EX14.
Strange Loop is travelling project and will be developed for another exhibition which will take place later in the year in Trondheim, Norway.
