Supplement - Exclusion Zones : Susanne Kriemann & Eva Wilson @ Motto Berlin 18.07.2017_Motto

Supplement 2 – Exclusion Zones

Susanne Kriemann & Eva Wilson

Published by Fillip

From 7pm

In conjunction with the release of Exclusion Zones, join artist Susanne Kriemann and writer Eva Wilson at Motto Berlin on Tuesday, July 18 at 7 pm for drinks and an informal discussion in the courtyard.

Exclusion Zones, the second issue in Fillip’s Supplement series, unpacks Susanne Kriemann’s photographic investigation of uraninite (or pitchblende), a radioactive, uranium-rich mineral found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (where it was mined for the Manhattan Project), Canada (in the Athabasca Basin and Great Bear Lake), and throughout Europe. Kriemann’s work focuses on the impact on the land surrounding uraninite mines operated by the now defunct mining company SDAG Wismut in the Ore Mountains of the former GDR. In Kriemann’s work, radioactive pigments drawn from wild plants growing near the vast sludge ponds at the decommissioned mine become raw photographic material: toxic, volatile, and beautiful.

Documented through Kriemann’s photographs, archival images, and a new text by Eva Wilson, Exclusion Zones charts an economic-geologic-cosmic nexus that speaks to the diverse impacts of industrial resource extraction and environmental remediation.

Sleep. Grouper. Fillip Editions

**Edition of 800 white 180g vinyls housed in a PVC-lined innersleeve with glossy cover** Breathtaking stuff from Liz Harris presented by Canadian publication, Fillip with suitably refined production values. This edition of ‘Sleep’ is a fragment of a longer composition (we could imagine it exponentially longer) first performed at the Berkeley Art Museum in 2011. More recently the label organised its performance in an abandoned polar bear enclosure at Vancouver’s decommissioned Zoo and now it finally reaches yours and our ears like some cathartic cloud of harmonised tape symphonics that just floated across the Atlantic. It’s difficult to say exactly what the source material is – it could be vocals, it could be synths – but that’s beside the point, and whatever it is, it’s one of the most beautiful things we’ve heard all year.
