Moyra Davey: Hell Notes - Solo Exhibition

09 December 2017–28 January 2018
Opening: 08.12.2017, 19h

Portikus is delighted to announce the first institu- tional solo exhibition of Moyra Davey in Germany. Over the last 30 years the Canadian Artist who lives in New York has created an impressing oeuvre. Her main focus is on mostly unremarkable things, everyday occurrence, and the pass- ing of time. At Portikus Davey will present an installation of several hundred serial photographs, Copperheads, which she has started already in 1990. For this purpose Davey took macro shots of the 1 penny coin. These close-ups make the known face of the former president Abraham Lincoln become peculiar landscapes. In combination with a Super 8 film the show is an psychoanalytic debate on currency and value, materiality and function.
