Current Exhibition

Linda Havenstein | In Tongues


Opening: January 21, 6–9 pm
January 22 – March 5, 2022

For her first solo exhibition “In Tongues” at Dorothée Nilsson Gallery Linda Havenstein created a series of paintings and sculptures which further explore her interest in language, codification, and the post-digital. 
Her paintings hint at the figurative, the sculptures appear to be an examination of material culture of the 20th century, yet both have a hidden layer that is only revealed with the help of Kassandra. This app gives the viewer a second reading and allows the works to be deciphered from a binary point of view. A language that is used daily is exposed, written down in a new manner, and allows the viewer to explore its material qualities. Havenstein aims to render the digital in an analog manner by applying paint to canvas and reorganize everyday materials.

Text auf deutsch
Für „In Tongues“, ihre erste Einzelausstellung in der Dorothée Nilsson Gallery, hat Linda Havenstein eine Reihe von Gemälden und Skulpturen geschaffen, mit denen sie ihr Interesse an Sprache, Kodifizierung und dem Postdigitalen weiter verfolgt. 
Ihre Malereien deuten das Figürliche an, die Skulpturen scheinen eine Untersuchung der materiellen Kultur des 20. Jahrhunderts zu sein, doch beide haben eine verborgene Ebene, die nur mit Hilfe von Kassandra enthüllt wird. Diese App ermöglicht den BetrachterInnen eine zweite Lesart, indem sie die Werke aus einer binären Perspektive entschlüsselt.  Dabei wird diese alltägliche Computersprache offengelegt, neu aufgeschrieben und den Betrachter*innen erlaubt, ihre materielle Qualität zu erkunden. Havenstein gibt das Digitale auf analoge Weise wieder, indem sie Farbe auf die Leinwand aufträgt und Materialien des Alltags neu arrangiert.
