After the Delay is a group show joining five artists with different artistic practices such as writing, installation, painting and sound to collaborate on this particular project. The show is part of my diploma in visual communication at Kunsthochschule Weißensee.

About the Artists:

Jenny Kalliokulju, born 1986, lives in Malmö

"I work with the tension that occurs between the physical or material and the mental presence. I do this by combining different types of media, materials, found objects and texts; layers upon layers of information-flows that reacts to each other. Like a collage or a choir of fragmental memories, whose base are intuitive studio work, appropriated or own texts, memories, dreams used figuratively or like a shadowy outline, fuzzy unsubstantial image for my work. The idea in the state of “in-betweeness”, floating in cyberspace or in dreams, a place where all laws of time and space is dissolved or mixed up. I’m interested in the notion of the “ghost” or “ghost-traces” like the flare, secondary image or spurious signal, misty, airy, or subtle materials - colliding with raw, dirty materials, found objects and chemical substances.

Once created I always re-use the pieces in new configurations/installations, to further explore the idea of form and memory. All ideas are rooted in the idea of the temporary exhibition situation, its possibilities and limitations. And in this way the work/installation creates a sort of "pocket" where all the laws of time and space dissolves and creates something new. The work becomes a kind organic jigsaw puzzle of stories, like a universe of its own. Staging a specific moment - by recreating situations/events and conversations, I explore how we are affected create images of our memory - and how this further effects our historiography."

Umberto Eco referred to this movement in his 1962 essay volume The Open Work: In it he takes the ambiguity of the image as a starting point, to which no clear statement is allocated, but only a vague conception, a tendency, transported by the structure of the picture, which in turn he understands as a “system of relations. ” The viewer also interprets this system openly, or rather contextually, depending on which culture, society or experience his background consists of. Despite the dark underlying tone of Rödel’s paintings, they can be read as open and interactive in Eco’s sense of the words. They do not subscribe to certain spiritual or surreal mindscapes, but stay in motion. Romanticism becomes an ontological atmospheric expanse.
