NO.HOT_L (2020 — ongoing) is a transdisciplinary artistic intervention series temporarily accomodating in holiday apartments and other transitory living spaces. Performative, installative and collaborative artistic interventions developed on site deal with phantoms and questionable aspects of “travel”, “home” and “work”. Amina Handke as artist and curator uses given space and furniture to create communicative stagings, recombinations and present-tations in the no/wo/man’s land between private and public.
Comparably, definitions of authorship are being expanded, as more artists and art related persons based both on-site and abroad are invited to collaborate and contribute. The ensemble of works, exchange and processes is the declared aim and product: The apartment is the exhibition, the exhibition a film setting, and the film is shown in the apartment. The cast of “artists” and “audience” is overlapping while exchanging informally in the Salon and connecting simultaneously with other places and times via portable devices and the internet wormhole.
Amina Handke (Vienna, Austria) is an artist, curator and author. Her work explores questions of originality and complex, contradictory constructions of identities and authenticity. It also addresses the borders between disciplines, mainly using time based media and methods: audiovisual, performative and conceptual.
Dennissa Young (Chicago) is a Native New Mexican with Spanish and Indigenous roots, currently residing in Chicago. Working primarily in video performance and relational aesthetics, Young’s art focuses on activating, organizing and collaborating. Exhibiting nationally and internationally, her work strives to foster friendship, radical softness, and to question the spiritual journey we are all on. Young’s artistic practice creates time, space and honesty, where audience members can engage and participate however they see fit.
