honkadori
An exhibition of works by Gabriele Bas ch\, Franziska Hünig and Isabel Kerkermeier

\n

In honkadori\, Stedefre und presents new works by Gabriele Basch\, Franziska Hünig and Isabel Kerke rmeier. Basch contributes large-scale cut-paper pieces\, Hünig responds to Stedefreund’s spatial context with an installation of printed and painted a dvertising tarpaulin banners\, and Kerkermeier is represented by three scul ptural works.

\n

Despite the differences in their artistic approaches\ , the three Berlin-based artists are united by a single operating principle : They take motifs or materials from their immediate surroundings\, reinter pret them and then place them in new formal contexts. The title of the show title\, which is borrowed from Japanese poetics\, refers to a similar tech nique. The term honkadori describes a particular style of quotation or allu sion in which verses or passages from classical poems are reproduced in new poems. In Japanese poetry\, this act is viewed not as unimaginative copyin g\, but rather as an admirable attempt to take up the mood or melody of an older text and cause it to resonate in a new context.

\n

Like the know ledgeable reader repeatedly refers to familiar texts by the device of honka dori\, the viewer may recognize a similar act of “taking up the melody” in the art of Basch\, Hünig and Kerkermeier. In various ways\, the artists cre ate references in their work to everyday life\, working with motifs or mate rials we already know from other contexts.
