Exhibition “Tranquil Motions” by Marcel Odenbach
Venue: Alliance Française de Karachi.
Opening: 6th April
Events: tbc: lectures/talks with Marcel Odenbach
The exhibition “Tranquil Motions” by Marcel Odenbach who one of the leading video artists in Germany is produced by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifA) in Stuttgart and curated by Matthias Mühling.
“Celebrated for his complex collages, detailed drawings, and cited in countless publications as a pioneer of video art: it’s no wonder why he has become a figure of national heritage. He continues to be considered––in his native Germany and beyond––a preeminent protagonist of the field, and of contemporary political art.
Often dealing with how the past infringes on the present, Odenbach’s work repeatedly merges connections between his own biography and the history of others. How history itself is configured, represented, and rewritten is frequently explored. Whether approaching Africa’s colonial history, the Rwandan genocide, the American Civil Rights movement, or most prominently National Socialism and the Holocaust, his research and practice persistently contemplates social justice, migration, and freedom of expression. Drawing from personal observations, recollections, and public archival material, his work reflects on a wide array of social and cultural concerns that serve to illustrate specific topics and at the same time bring about universal perspectives on humanity, identity, and the individual in a global world. A master of montage, Odenbach’s experimentation with media, and his decidedly special form of storytelling, helped establish the foundations for contemporary video art, paving the path for generations of artists. Perceiving the self and the other, in manifold ways his work subtly mediates material memorials, tragedy, and social consciousness.
