KAYA (Kerstin Brätsch & Debo Eilers)7th Athens Biennial

Athens Biennial, Athens, GR

24.09. – 28.11.2021

  • _OraKle Paintings (Catacomb Mirrors) are vessels anointed by the collective KAYA, who conducted a participatory workshop at Tropez, Sommerbad Humboldthain, Berlin, which honed and resonated inside the wish-sound paintings. Amplifying the sonic transmission from the static painting, they worked alongside Nicolas An Xedro, who conducted the mirrored surfaces to howl, sing, and buzz, performing a healing process through the sonic vibrations of both painting and tone, which then culminated in the performance Kaya Yo-Nah Yo-Ho inside an old bear pit in Berlin. These works represent for the artist collective an extended body of painting that, in turn, becomes an extreme form beyond the material, culminating in the energy of seeing.
