> DESCRIPTION

For her exhibition “Shop/Like” at the Galerie EIGEN+ART Leipzig Christine Hill draws a connection to her Berlin-based store “Volksboutique Small Business”. In the exhibition space she will install a life-sized Kaufladen, which can be activated by gallery visitors.
The scaled-up version of the familiar children's toy occupies the main gallery. Familiar shop accouterments and renditions of objects usually found in Kauflaeden (packaging, bottles, jars) are all on display. The shelving contents reflect an interest in the phrenological divisions of the brain or thought process — the collected objects on display are assigned meaning and priority based on their placement and labeling. Taxonomically, they address more existential questions and considerations.
