Past exhibition at Lumiar Cité:
11.09 - 30.11.2014
For her first exhibition in Portugal Judith Hopf presents a cinematographic installation, two films and a number of sculptures that were produced by the artist during her residency at the Maumaus Programme.
Judith Hopfʼs oeuvre, which unfolds through sculpture, installation, graphic work, performance and film, reflects on normative structures, focussing on the frontiers between social participation and cultural exclusion. The artist maps the vanishing horizon of alternative forms of living, which exist beyond the logic of self-discipline. Avoiding social documentation, Hopf uses art to construct an autonomous space, in which observed and directly experienced social circumstances are rendered into installations. Here she creates a space ʻwithin which the circumstances can be made to danceʼ. Within her work Judith Hopf incorporates slapstick and caricature to undermine processes of simulacrum, which prevail in the construction of meaning – inside and outside the art world – in a time where communication, work and capitalism seem to be in flux (Daniel Pies).
Judith Hopf (Germany, 1969) lives and works in Berlin. She has exhibited her work in numerous solo exhibitions, including: ʻCracking Nutsʼ, kaufmann repetto gallery (New York, 2014); ʻTesting Timeʼ, Studio Voltaire (London, 2013); Malmö Konsthall (2012); ʻend rhymes and openingsʼ, Grazer Kunstverein (2012); ʻTürenʼ (with Henrik Olesen), Portikus (Frankfurt, 2007); and Secession (Vienna, 2006). Notable collective exhibitions include: the Liverpool Biennial (2014); dOCUMENTA 13 (Kassel, 2012); ʻHow to Work (More for) Lessʼ, Kunsthalle Basel (2011); ʻSlow Movement or: Half and Wholeʼ, Kunsthalle Bern (2009); and ʻDraw A Straight Line and Follow Itʼ, Tate Modern (London, 2008).
This exhibition has been coproduced by Maumaus and the Goethe-Institut Portugal, within the framework of the Maumaus Residency Programme.
