Etwas kam auf uns zu / Something was coming upon us (2019)

To make the best of a bad situation, namely, a prolonged eviction process, nine artists have come together to gift a Charlottenburg apartment one last life as an unusual exhibition space. On February 9th Something was coming upon us opened in a partially gutted and completely empty 122-year-old tenement slated for demolition. Funded by the city of Berlin, participating artists produced site-specific projects and interventions. The artists were: Emma Adler (DE), William Engelen (NL), Friederike Feldmann (DE), Dagmara Genda (PL/CA), Emily Hunt (AUS), Thomas Locher (DE), Joachim Schmid (DE), Louise Witthöft (DK) & Rodney LaTourelle (CA).

I laughed, I cried, I split my side (2014)

"I laughed, I cried, I split my side is the evocation of a horrible laugh, at once absurd and pained, funny and awful. Skirting the lines of discomfort, ridicule, and cynical self-deprecation, the exhibition explores the interstices of humour and horror." This group show ran at aka-artist run centre in Saskatoon Canada. Artists featured: Kyle Beal (Calgary AB), Erica Eyres (Glasgow UK), Christine Negus (London ON), Shanell Papp (Lethbridge AB).
