Notes for a Letter to Angelina Jolie by Herman Asselberghs


Commissioned by HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Notes for a Letter to Angelina Jolie by Herman Asselberghs is a short, stark work offering a quiet, preliminary meditation on the imagery of celebrity advocacy. Originally intended as a video letter to Angelina Jolie (Special Envoy to UNHCR) but addressing the spectator instead, Herman Asselberghs presents a small notebook, an associative series of silent images and still thoughts, as he moves up close to the image, the screen and the viewer. Part of the live program Image of Rescue / Rescuing the Image at HAU, Berlin, Feb 10-11.

Anouk De Clercq shows 3 works in Berlin this month: It (collaboration with Tom Callemin) is part of Berlinale Forum Feb 20-21. Thing is part of a group show 'Karma Ltd. Extended' at Acud Macht Neu til Mar 04. And Building is part of the Phantom Horizons series at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien Feb 12–Mar 01.
