About this Event

Gianni Manhattan is very happy to invite you to a screening of Barbara Kapustas video installation The Leaking Bodies and a conversation between Barbara Kapusta and Steph Holl-Trieu.

Kapusta’s immersive three-channel video installation The Leaking Bodies and her most recent acrylic glass works seek to describe the effects of environmental, social and emotional stress, the increasing toxicity of landscapes, political instability and how our relationship to these events work in, and on, our bodies.

Both Kapusta and Holl-Trieu are interested in technology, theoryfiction writing and speculative worldbuilding.

The conversation will be held in English.

The zoom link will be sent out shortly before the event.

Barbara Kapusta is an artist and writer based in Vienna. Her recent show The Leaking Bodies Series opened Dec 2020 at Gianni Manhattan. She is interested in the conjunction of the body with materiality and speech. Materiality becomes entrusted with a queer agency that allows for diversity and vulnerability. She was awarded the Otto Mauer Prize in 2020. Her most recent publication Dangerous Bodies was published in 2019 by Gianni Manhattan Vienna and Motto Books, Lausanne, Berlin.

Steph Holl-Trieu is an artist and researcher interested in imbrications and slippages between digital materialism, ecology and technical aesthetics. Steph works with methodologies of performance, gameplay, theoryfiction writing and speculative worldbuilding. She works as a curator at the project space Ashley Berlin and is part of the Research Institute for Technical Aesthetics (RITA), her work has been presented at Roter Salon (Volksbühne), 3HD, Haus der Statistik and Trust in Berlin and the Mosaic Rooms in London.
