WHITECONCEPTS Gallery is excited to invite you to a special event.
As part of our 10th anniversary show “The X Part I we are going to present the performance
BUTTERFLY #3 by the Hungarian artist Hajnal Németh.
The performance takes place on the 21st of February, 6 pm
at WHITECONCEPTS Gallery in Auguststrasse 35, 10119 Berlin.
BUTTERFLY #3 will include an approx. 17 min long adaptation of the song
Three Of A Perfect Pair (King Crimson, 1984) . The artist will be accompanied by award winning Christian Bringzen (electric guitar) and Albert Orgon (vocal).
In her artistic practice Hajnal Németh creates musicals, operas, performances, films and photographs. Through slight modifications of poems, songs and texts she encourages political statements. Her artistic activity is based on performative works. These are mainly musical interpretations of written texts drawing on the broad spectrum of musical tendencies and the tools and devices of other performative fields, sometimes placed in an environment of light- and spatial installation.
Hajnal Németh was born in Szőny, Hungary in 1972. She has lived and worked in Berlin since 2002. She participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions at prestigious art institutions in Europe, America and Asia, including MUMOK, Vienna; Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin; Tate Modern, London and many more. For her artistic work, the artist received many awards.
In 2011 she represented Hungary at the Venice Biennale.
