Production Details / Press Releases
WILHELM GROENER – Günther Wilhelm & Mariola Groener – create the frst part of the cycle »becoming undone« as a hybrid between exhibition and performance. Curiosity for new links that scrutinize our habitual patterns of reception is the impetus for WILHELM GROENER´s new performance project. »becoming undone« unfolds in three parts and deals with process-related openness. During the opening hours the visitor can observe a constantly changing situation that probes changing experimental arrangements of space, sound, body and things.
The spectator has the choice: observing the developing performance in full length over the course of three hours, attending an excerpt or stopping by several times, on different days.
WILHELM GROENER: The artist Mariola Groener and dancer Günther Wilhelm have blended their names and arts into their alter ego WILHELM GROENER since 2001. With a predilection for the odd and absurd, their work uses elements of performance, dance and installation. The pieces Vorgang benutzt, Paravent privé and Hotel Hassler have been invited to the German TANZPLATTFORM 2000, 2006 and 2010. In spring 2011 they presented seven pieces of their opus during a retrospective called WILHELM GROENER – born on 1st of May, 2001 at the UFERSTUDIOS. As their latest project they presented the K-cycle between 2013 and 2015, to which the publication aber auch and the website www.aber-auch.net has been released.
