11.09.2020 - Amie Siegel: Gropius Bau, Berlin
Amie Siegel: Gropius Bau, Berlin
Amie Siegel's Quarry (2015) will be screened from 7pm (CET) on Friday 11 September at Gropius Bau in Berlin, as part of Revolverkino's film series What is Landscape? along with films by Joanna Hogg and Hannes Long.
Quarry traces the source of marble from a dark, cave-like underground quarry in Vermont—the largest in the world—to its high-end destination in Manhattan real estate developments. The orchestral soundtrack forms an emotive underpinning to the sleek interiors, echoing at times the aspiration of the luxury rendering. White marble, with its association to classical renaissance sculpture, is shaped and constructed into the interior surfaces of these luxury apartments, designed to bring even the most mundane spaces in closer proximity to the materiality and values of art. Through a distinctive camera choreography of tracking shots, gliding movements and sudden tableaux, the film reveals and montages increasingly elaborate layers and strategies of re-creation and simulation. Ultimately the representation of living or life exposes a complex economy of production and speculation.
Friday, 11 September, 7pm (CET).

12.06.2020 - Amie Siegel: Scharaun, Berlin
Amie Siegel: Scharaun, Berlin
As part of The image of the city in the cinematic space, curated by Olaf Stüber and Jaro Straub, Amie Siegel's The Architects (2014) will be screened online from 6pm (CET) today for six days via Scharaun, Berlin.
The Architects cuts transversally through the city of New York, moving through various architecture studios, from Fifth Avenue to downtown to Brooklyn, creating a seamless timeline and a singular visual unfolding. The camera’s ceaseless parallel tracking takes in vast office spaces and gazes uncompromisingly at the highly networked production of global architecture. The view into this world is obscured by surfaces and layers of representation; facades, paintings, models, screens, windows - the very architectures of looking and seeing. The locations, objects and long horizontal desks frame the wide spectrum of practice, unveiling typologies of sameness and difference through the offices, between the lens of the camera and the view of Manhattan, always, and only, just outside the window.
Friday, 12 June, 6pm CET through Thursday, 18 June.

In 2011 and 2016 Kunstmuseum Stuttgart presented the work of Amie Siegel in two solo exhibitions, Black Moon and Ricochet. The two exhibitions, including performance, video, and works on paper, were separated by five years yet conceived as a single exhibition unfolding over time under the umbrella title, Ricochet. The visual motifs and ideas reflected between the double exhibition format assumes its final translation in the exhibition catalogue. Instead of combining both presentations in a single publication, Siegel, together with graphic designer Kerstin Riedel, created two mirrored books which are, however, bound together into one volume. Opening the catalogue reveals two double spreads that offer multiple possibilities to combine the illustrations of Siegel's artworks. This unique catalogue elaborates on the thematic contrast across the exhibitions — the archaeology of cinema, image provenance, psychoanalysis and economies of gender — to further involve the reader's associative participation.
