Currently, Praterstr. 48 Berlin is showing work by Hanako Geierhos. Geierhos’ work references elements of textile design read through Minimalism. Her main preoccupation is with space and social interaction; she explores this through a combination of performance art, masks, and participatory sculptures – viewers can arrange the floor reliefs at will, creating possibilities for exchange and communication. Her leather pattern images, stacked in boxes, are designed to be arranged and rearranged on the walls – the viewer as the curator of their own exhibition.
Given the current buzz surrounding Austrian art, Praterstr.48 Berlin is very much a space to keep an eye on.
