Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart
Eva Fàbregas takes over the historical hall of the Hamburger Bahnhof with a monumental, site-specific installation. The artist's largest solo exhibition to date expands the boundaries of sculpture, inviting visitors to a sensual, spatial experience. Amorphous sculptures and a sound installation transform the museum's railway station architecture, which is characterized by industrial iron girders, into an organically grown space.
With this new commission, Fàbregas (b. 1988 in Barcelona, lives and works in London and Barcelona) responds to the passage-like architecture of Hamburger Bahnhof’s main historical hall. The soft and corporeal objects, characteristic of the artist's work, spread out throughout the entire space, from the sides, from the ceiling, and through the metal structures. And while the sources of the deep tones of the sound components cannot be clearly identified, they are physically felt through their vibrations. The mix of sculpture and sound reorients the visitors’ experience of the former train station hall. The borders between technically generated, and the human and non-human worlds become blurred. Visitors find themselves immersed in this organic-technical environment.
The exhibition is accompanied by the second issue of the Hamburger Bahnhof's new publication series published by Silvana Editoriale Milano.
The exhibition is curated by Anna-Catharina Gebbers, curator at Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart.
