Artist Nina Könnemann (German, b. 1971) presents the first New York screenings of her short single-channel moving image works. According to critic Jan Verwoert, Könnemann’s pieces “gently unhinge [viewers’] sense of time and space. No special effects are used, and all the actions shown are real events, none of them what you might call spectacular.” These works deal with disillusionment, the dark side of ecstasy, and the unrequited search for connection and, perhaps, passion. Könnemann concentrates on the “after” of events, celebrating what happens on the sidelines and in the margins, and locating a drama in the otherness of the ordinary. Special thanks to Karin Guenther.
