God is an Asphyxiating Black Sauce

Opening for the summer solstice on June 20, the Klosterruine hosts Johanna Hedva’s first solo show in Germany. Hedva is an artist, writer, musician, and astrologer whose practice tunnels into the radical permeabilities of the body and investigates its relationship to time, capitalism, death, nothingness, and the cosmos. For their exhibition "God is an Asphyxiating Black Sauce", Hedva mixes new and unreleased sound pieces by friends and collaborators with their own site-responsive, shape-shifting works of music and text, concocting different versions of the work to be experienced, remotely and on site, virtually, and telepathically. Continuing their inquiry into breaking the unholy union between time and productivity, the installation creates a soundscape of noise, music, and language that prods and howls at the infinite. What does absence feel like, sound like: this black sauce that runs beneath, through, without and within our everyday time? Does absence exist at all? Isn’t it always teeming with the presences of histories, memories, ghosts?
