“Worlding It Otherwise or Else” explores how artistic work works.

Beyond the material conditions of production, artists may invent their own set of conditions and relations through which their work is rendered working.

And those circumstances are no less real, significant, or material for that matter.

Taking this supposed paradox as a starting point, the group exhibition assembles four artists that each in their own way define laws, narratives, and forces – effectively putting worlds into practice, making things visible that are there and that are not.

stephanie comilang

Stephanie Comilang lives and works between Toronto and Berlin. She received her BFA from Ontario College of Art & Design. Her documen-tary-based works create narratives that look at how our understandings of mobi-lity, capital and labour on a global scale are shaped through various cultural and social factors. Her work has been shown at Ghost: 2561 Bangkok Triennale, Inter-national Film Festival Rotterdam, Asia Art Archive in America New York, and SALTS Basel.

magdalena los

Magdalena Los (*in 

Jastrzębie-Zdrój, PL) lives and works in Hamburg and Cologne. Her Zodiac sign is pisces, in the dog horoscope after D. R. Otalora she is a dalmatian. In her work she combines objects, perfor-mance, editions and text. 

Her main quality is muta-bility, which makes her hard to pin down. As a passionate storyteller she likes giving people what they want, but not what they thought they wanted. Her work has been shown in the Kunstverein Hamburg, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Große Kunstschau Worpswede,  and in a lot of spaces under the radar in Germany, Poland, London and Italy.

anna m. szaflarski

Anna M. Szaflarski's works in illustration, narrative wri-ting and sculpture reference themes related to psyche-delic, surreal, supernatural, and feminist science fiction that questions the purpose and potential of the female body. In her work she com-bines objects, performance, editions and text. Her main quality is mutability, which makes her hard to pin down.

Recent projects include exhi-bitions at the Vernacular Institute in Mexico City, and Ashley Berlin, and publi-cation projects such as her collection of essays in Letters to the Editors (2015).
She is currently working on an upcoming collection of texts and illustrations to be published in the summer of 2019 (Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite & AKV Berlin).
