Exhibition Catalgoue

Jul 20, 2023


In the catalog for his exhibition “Time Collapse,” artist Bodo Korsig invites 25 writers to reflect on his works, resulting in a diverse collection of statements, prose, and poetry. Curated by Bernhard Serhexe under the theme “Knots in the Neuronal Fabric,” this collaboration delves into the intricacies of communication and interpretation.

Through symbols, we navigate the known, decoding meanings embedded in our shared lexicon. Yet, societal harmony hinges not only on comprehension but also on the interpretation of the unspoken. Serhexe’s musings on the complexities of societal agreements illuminate the fragility of our collective understanding, emphasizing the importance of implicit communication.

But how do we communicate the uncharted, the ineffable? How do we navigate the realms beyond convention? These are the questions that permeate the pages of “Time Collapse,” inviting readers to contemplate the nuances of human expression and the boundaries of shared understanding.

In this collaboration between visual art and written word, Bodo Korsig’s evocative works serve as catalysts for introspection, prompting audiences to explore the depths of the unspoken and embrace the mysteries of the unknown. “Time Collapse” is not merely an exhibition catalog; it is a journey into the realm of the ineffable, where art and language intersect to unravel the complexities of human experience.
