GENEALOGY – Lecture Performance

28th August 2016, 19:00 h

in conjunction with:
Galerie Patrick Ebensperger, Berlin
13 August – 10 September 2016


Over the past 25 years, Bjørn Melhus embodied over 90 different characters in his films, videos and installations. On August 28, Melhus will personally present these characters at silent green – a journey through their backgrounds, representations and relations, accompanied by the work itself and artistic-research material: a different kind of genealogy.

In parallel, from August 13 until September 10, the neighbouring Patrick Ebensperger Gallery will show the HEADSHOTS, a portrait series of all of the characters. On the evening of August 27, the exhibition will be open to the audience.

Sunday, August 28
6pm HEADSHOTS at Patrick Ebensperger Gallery
7pm GENEALOGY: Lecture Performance by Bjørn Melhus at silent green
Entrance free

+++ The evening will be held in English. +++
