  • Alex Beriault: Sometimes a little Sin is good for the Soul, 2020. Still

GAK Projekte:
Alex Beriault

19.09–18.10.2020

In her film “Sometimes a Little Sin is Good for the Soul“, Alex Beriault creates a kind of architectural in-between space. Three female bodies can be seen in a dream-like condition, neither temporally nor spatially locatable. An “Exit” sign repeatedly appears, offering the only clue in the form of language. But the camera continues to wander around, orienting itself on colours, shapes and objects. It slows down, gropes, tilts.

Two abstracted environments, one industrial, the other pure colour surface, form the background for the unclear circumstances of the bodies. They are in a state of limbo, apparently without direction, decision-making power or capacity for action. The aphoristic title of the film alludes to a violation of a code of conduct. But instead of clear, causal relationships, space and time are manipulated at the intersection of performance, film and sculpture in such a way that a mental interior space is created instead.

Alex Beriault (born 1990 in Toronto / Canada) is a master student of Rosa Barba at the HfK Bremen. In 2014 she received her BFA in Sculpture/Installation from OCAD University in Toronto.

GAK-Projekte is an exhibition series on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst.
