HEIMO ZOBERNIG
wood painting

30.1 – 1.5 2016

The Vienna-based artist Heimo Zobernig has achieved wide recognition for his sculptures, paintings, videos and performances.

For this solo exhibition at Malmö Konsthall, which is Zobernig’s first solo presentation in the Nordic countries, a series of new sculptures reflects on the iconic architecture of the gallery space, unpacking its role as a neutral container for art. The artist has incorporated the temporary partition walls built to display works in the preceding exhibition, Joan Jonas’s Light Time Tales, which have been left unaltered in their original positions. This enables them to gain significance as sculptures that bear an ambivalent resemblance to plinths and stage props, subtly questioning what an
artwork is.

JUMANA MANNA
A magical substance flows into me
30.1 – 1.5 2016

C-salen

Malmö Konsthall presents Jumana Manna’s first solo show in Sweden. In her sculptures and moving-image works, the Berlin- and Jerusalem-based artist addresses issues such as nationalism, the construction of communities, and the body’s relation to specific histories of place.

The centrepiece of her exhibition is the feature-length film, A magical substance flows into me (2015), which draws on the radio program Oriental Music, made in 1936-37 for the Palestine Broadcasting Service by the German-Jewish ethnomusicologist Robert Lachmann. To realise her film, Manna travelled across Palestine/Israel to meet the groups Lachmann had studied, playing his recordings and making new ones of her own. The film is co-commissioned by the Sharjah Art Foundation and Chisenhale Gallery with Malmö Konsthall and the 2016 Biennale of Sydney.
