This project forms part of a series of collaborative acts where KELDER will work with artists, curators, educators, institutions and writers to take the role of guest curator in order to realise a collaborative project.

Our first guest curator is the artist, Ingrid Berthon-Moine who works across sculpture, photography and installation. She addresses concerns around the representation of gender relations and gender narratives through her practice.
About
Barbara Gamper’s practice lies at the intersection of somatic bodywork, performance, moving image and textiles. The body holds a central role in her process of making. Gamper is interested in its archival layers of experience, emotion and sensation – the inert knowledge inscribed at the level of bones and muscles – and in the process of connecting and unearthing these. She graduated in 2016 with an MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London. Recent exhibitions include ‘Run the World (girls)’, Galleria Doris Ghetta, Pontives (2019); ‘At the level of the bone’, Chalton Gallery (2018); ‘Cellular Breathing (toward fluid bodies and autotelic experience’, Galerie Andreas Schmidt, Berlin (2018) and ‘We Move in Her Way’ by Sonia Boyce, ICA, London (2016).
