An evening with Anaïs Horn & Eilert Asmervik:
Join us for a double book launch, reading, sound performance and conversation with Paris based artists Anaïs Horn (AT) and Eilert Asmervik (NOR), each presenting their new publications: “Longing Ghosts in Deep Blue Paranoia” (Drama Books) and “Kette von Bild und Aber-Bild” (InterStar Verlag) alongside their collaborative project “How do you feel about ‘Lou’” (Meta/Books) and other recent publications by Anaïs Horn “Je suis malheureuse et heureuse” (Meta/Books) and “Die Hand voller Stunden, so kamst du zur mir” (Edition Camera Austria).
Writer and curator Wendy Vogel will read her text from the latter, as well as a selection of texts and poems from the other artist’s books present. The reading will be followed by a conversation between Asmervik, Horn and Vogel, moderated by Craig Mathis (Printed Matter) and a sound performance by Eilert Asmervik.
Anaïs Horn, born in Graz (AT), lives and works in Paris, currently in residence with ISCP New York.
Anaïs Horn’s work intertwines text, photography, video, drawing and painting to explore intimate moments. With a focus on liminality, Horn observes people and their spaces. In her artistic process, she investigates time, memories, the body and its traces, the cautious intrusion of privacy, the aesthetics of reality, and fugacity. Her images take shape by exploring surfaces and objects, and they frequently unfold into spatial installations. The artist‘s book is an essential medium for her work.
Eilert Asmervik, born in Trondheim (NOR), lives and works in Paris.
Mainly disciplined in oil painting and sound he approaches creation intuitively. As co-founder of the fluid, international InterStar freedom platform, he continuously contributes to bringing interdisciplinary, inter-medial, inter-esthetic expression to the world in the form of Guerilla-shows, publications, editions, sound performances and other formats.
