Christine Hoffmann ‘Brave new world‘ mixed media installation, Herford 2017

The installation ‘Brave new world‘ was shown in September 2017 at art space ‘Kiosk24’ in Herford/ Germany. Christine Hoffmann´s work was inspired by the book ‘Artistic and Scientific Taxidermy‘ from The LFTT Library.

Artificial zoomorphic creatures seem to grow in a research laboratory. Small animals crawl towards all five edges of the room, showing synchronized behaviour. They are connected with veins or ventilation tubes and filled with green nutrient solution. Clones are stored in regales of glass and breeded by red heaters. Large drawings describe a plan for the genetic recombination of hybrid beings.

The title ‘Brave new world‘ aims at the dystopic novel of Aldous Huxley. The installation is a warning against the manipulation of nature by man. In correspondence with the Fransiscan idea, it´s a call for a more conscious interaction with nature.

The vernissage started with an artists talk between Susanne Albrecht, Angelika Höger and Christine Hoffmann – and ended with an eat-art-initiative ‘eat your monster’ – a transformation of energy.
