“Fragmented Time” at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery
This exhibition assembles works by four international artists Ella Littwitz (Israel), Rachel Monosov (Russia/Israel), Benjamin Verhoeven (Belgium) and Reijiro Wada (Japan). The works here are experiments which freeze, reconstruct, resurrect and mock time. In Ella Littwitz’s Whistle (2013), the viewer hears the layers of history folded into a physical material, in this case a post war vinyl record. The starting point of the work is the found piece of broken vinyl in the Tempelhof excavation, which, upon examination of the artist, revealed fragments of English words from American military postwar broadcasts. Littwitz pressed a new vinyl retaining the shape of the original broken piece. The resulting 8:19 min track effectively resurrects the sound of its original as the listener hears surviving fragments from that dark point in history.
