r/evolving: Lara Salmon
Opening: Tuesday August 21st 2018, 6-9 PM
An exhibition of work and performance projects in Germany by American artist Lara Salmon, a SomoS resident for Summer 2018. In Berlin, Salmon performs “Tower 13” a ritualized sleep-in at the Tempelhof airport for 30 days leading up to the opening date of her exhibition, which can be seen as a poetic musing on the complicated history of the site itself. The artist will also exhibit a video project, produced in collaboration with Yaron Guerrero Santos, a fellow Los-Angeles artist.

Her sculptures are currently exhibited as part of the “21ᵉ édition de Sculptures en l’Île à Andrésy,” taking place from May 18th – September 23rd.
Alexei Gordin is the winner of the 2017 “Young Painter Prize,” one of the most important art events in the Baltic countries, uniting Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian young artists. Part of the prize is a Summer 2018 sojourn as Artist-in-Residence at SomoS in Berlin.
Bianca Tainsh is a visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia. She is known for her meticulously conceptualized and executed multi-disciplinary installations.

Angela Flury, associate professor in the English department at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana, USA, is a writer, scholar, speaker and educator interested in the history of the novel, genre fiction, world literature, translation studies, visual studies and cinematic narratives. She returns to SomoS as part of its Visiting Researchers Program, devoting her time and energy to the preparation of her academic courses and to her novel-in-progress “Berlin Cards & Crimes.”
Lara Salmon will spend June-August 2018 in Berlin to expand on her performance work focusing on the relationship between longstanding communities and recent migrants to Berlin and how this relates to a global context of human movement.
