A3 PROJECTS SUMMER RESIDENCY 2
A3 PROJECTS SUMMER RESIDENCY #2
A3 is pleased to announce it's second A3 PROJECTS SUMMER RESIDENCY at its Berlin premises in Fasanenstraße with the 2019 TOY BERLIN MASTERS AWARD WINNER, Bianca Kennedy. Kennedy will be shooting her new video "Bath the Pain Away" as part of this residency.
Kennedy was born in 1989 in Leipzig, Germany and lives and works in Berlin. She studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and graduated with a Master's degree in 2017. Her works have been shown in museums, galleries and festivals, including the Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, the Museum of Fine Arts in Leipzig, the CCBB Rio de Janeiro, the LOOP Festival Barcelona and the Sundance Film Festival.
Her stop motion videos, virtual reality experiences and drawings merge into unconventionally disturbing installations that address physicality and the depths of human nature. With a wide formal range, Kennedy's works lead deep into the human psyche. Her animations appear as feverish dreams which unmask suppressed drives and atmospherically explore the limits of what is bearable. Her interest in the staging of the bathtub represents the climax of this confrontation to date; in the 3-channel installation and her drawing series (We're all in this together, 2018) she gathers all human emotions and brings the viewer into the bathtub (VR all in this together, 2018).
