"of roses and territories" - Gabriella Hirst
Please feel warmly invited to Gabriella Hirst´s visit to the HBK.
Gabriella Hirst will give an insight into her artistic practice and recent shows which have focussed on the subject of the politics around gardening and plants - not solely in connection to botany but much further into the colonial themes implied. These topics will be contextualised within an open conversation framed by Gabriella Hirst and Kerstin Honeit.
Gabriella Hirst (she/her) is an artist and writer. She was born and grew up on Cammeraygal land (Australia) and is currently living between Berlin and London. She works primarily with moving image, performance, and with the garden as a site of critique and care. Gabriella's practice explores the politics of capture- most recently in relation to museums, gardens and irrigation. She maintains an ongoing research/garden project with curator Warren Harper navigating the entanglements of nuclear armament and colonial gardening practices.
Gabriella's recent projects have been exhibited and commissioned by the Kunsthalle Osnabrück (DE), Focal Point Gallery (UK), The Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Australian Center for the Moving Image (AU). She is the recipient of the 2020 ACMI/Ian Potter Moving Image Commission, is a previous Marten Bequest Scholar and a recipient of the John Crampton Fellowship. She is an associate lecturer in Media Studies with the RCA School of Architecture.
Kerstin Honeit (she/her) works as an artist with experimental documentary moving image formats.
She lives in Berlin, where she studied visual arts and stage design at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule. In her filmic works she researches mechanisms of representation in the production of hegemonic image worlds, focussing on the politics of voice. Honeit teaches at various art academies and currently shares the professorship for spatial concepts at the HBK Braunschweig with Candice Breitz. Her work is regularly presented at international film festivals and in exhibitions.
Hasan Zeytin (dey/she) has organised this event and will also host it.
