Artstic Strategies to shape the City Body

about the exhibition

Regina Pemsl develops artistic strategies that stimulate the perception of the human body to the city. Through practical work, she invites the audience to engage and interact with each other as well as to shape their own living environment.
Various visual installations in collaboration with Lostgens Contemporary Arts Space will be presented as a result of her three-month Artist-Residency Project in Kuala Lumpur with the invitation of the Goethe-Institut Malaysia. These installations include:
“My Little Kingdom”- a walk followed by a Batik session.
“Jalan Panggung Hanging Gardens” - a visual stimulus to create more green in the city.
“Vanish”- a film portrait
“Cukup – Chinese character – Enough” - an installation made together with workshop-participants.

Regina Pemsl entwickelt künstlerische Strategien, die die Wahrnehmung des eigenen Körpers in der Stadt anregen. Sie lädt ein, über praktisches Arbeiten sowohl Kontakte zu knüpfen, als auch die eigene Lebensumwelt zu gestalten.
In Lostgens und der Umgebung werden Beispiele für Kooperationen vorgestellt, die in einem dreimonatigen Arbeitsaufenthalt auf Einladung des Goethe Instituts in KL entstanden sind, wie “My little Kingdom“ - ein Spaziergang mit anschließender Batik -Praxis, „Jalan Panggung Hanging Gardens“ – ein Impuls für mehr Grün in der Stadt, „vanish“ – ein Filmporträt und „cukup – enough – chinesisches Zeichen“, eine Installation mit Publikumsbeteiligung.
