“Hello, my name is..."
...and... "Yes, I am fine.”
Are we holding on to the objects of remembrance – or is it the objects that are holding on to us?
In his first solo exhibition in Portugal, produced for Lumiar Cité, Gernot Wieland presents, among other works, his most recent film “Hello, my name is...” ...and... "Yes, I am fine.”. In this work, Gernot Wieland links personal narratives, historic reports and scientific facts, fictional and real elements with tragic and comic events, generating a sense of the uncanny, mostly in an ironic or absurd way. It also deals with parrots, the history of drones, psychotherapeutic settings, analyses of powerlessness and the artist’s Catholic childhood, complexifying notions of interpretation of memory.
On the opening day, the artist presents the lecture performance Speaking of Places. With the artist’s performance and the display of images, this presentation has components that are linked to the film, extending it to speculations about crystals and the Austrian actor and cabaret performer Karl Farkas.
