Never Memorize Poems in Landscape Leeway
With Didi Cheeka, Discoteca Flaming Star, Constanze Fischbeck, Donna Ogunnaike
This evening of performance, conversation and film is part of the German-Nigerian project NEVER MEMORIZE POEMS IN LANDSCAPE LEEWAY, initiated by Constanze Fischbeck, Abraham Oghobase and Discoteca Flaming Star. The exhibition is on view at Galerie Nord | Kunstverein Tiergarten from 07.12.2018 – 12.01.2019 (Tuesday – Saturday 13:00–19:00).
As part of their performance, Discoteca Flaming Star (Cristina Gómez Barrio, Sofia Lomba, Sara Pereira and Wolfgang Mayer) will present a new fragment of their horror comedy cycle "Ingrid“ (2003 – present) called “Landscape Leeway“. Its protagonist Ingrid finds herself the devastated post-mining landscape of Lausitz, Germany, a landscape inhabited by ghosts from sunken villages and buried deserts. Their approach to memory, politically shaped landscape and monstrosity, marked by personal narrative and contingency, will be superimposed with the poetry of Donna Ogunnaike who among other things examines songs of the miners' wives in Enugu. By means of poetry, film and music, they explore the complex relationship between nature, landscape and transformation, collective transmission of cultural heritage, memory and history/ies and geopolitical utopias.

Intervention by Sara Pereira and Sofia Lomba
Sofia Lomba and Sara Pereira bring together two perspectives on body and transformations, staging deformations, mutation and hybrids. Facing with, looking at, being looked at, showing, exploring and showing again, are processes that both works deal with. In their part they propose a classificatory approach. On one hand, Pereira introduces a collection of moments extracted from the forest of everyday life, made of notebooks that track the the fluidity of bodies and the precarious landscapes in which they are placed. On the other hand, Lomba proposes a series of drawings exercising botanical taxonomic systems that consciously confuse the reproductive organs of plants and humans.
