[statement & dialogue IV]

Angelika Middendorf, Borgman | Lenk

Angelika Middendorf was a master student (Meisterschülerin) at the Berlin University of the Arts, where she used her work to explore themes of perception and the construction of reality. Her time-based work works are often developed as snapshots of highly complex realities. The results are minimalist interventions and spatial installations which open an experimental window on space and time. Middendorf’s formal language has always been open, and she works with inter-media formats including video installations, performative interventions and photography

After studying in New York and Paris the two made use of grants and residency programmes to work in Marseille (France), Mojacar (Spain), Dublin (Ireland) and Dale (Norway), among other places. They then moved to Hamburg and finally to Berlin, where they have lived and worked since 2000.

[statement & dialogue II]

Martin Bretag

Light and sound designer Martin Bretag is the first to make sure that the ruins of the minster don’t remain hidden in darkness during the winter. His installation, using spotlights and neon, cloaks the minster ruins in an ambient light and follows the outlines of the unique architecture of the culturally historic monument. His work plays with the historical architectural substance, transforming the site into a modern workshop for light. Bretag uses elements of the surrounding contemporary architecture and transposes them to the ground of the former church interior.
