Collected Smells: Smell Lab Showcase
Community showcase night
During the past months Smell Lab was born as part of the new art space SPEKTRUM. A group of enthusiasts with a passion for the sense of smell and its uses in art and science, gather every month to experiment and discuss new realities and approaches to one of the most forgotten senses of the human body, olfaction.
This night will showcase the work that has been going on in the lab so far:
Collected Smells is the first installation produced by the Smell Lab. The work consists of several smells gathered during the Smell Lab's meetings and derived from various locations in Berlin-Neukölln. The installation is made up of sheets of cloth imbued with scents from our surroundings, for example - the water, the soil, cigarette smoke... The work is the culmination of the lab's explorations and is the first in a series of future projects.
At 20:00 there will be a short presentation about the piece with the participating artists: Daria Chesnokova, Chaveli Sifre, Max Joy, Alanna Lynch, Sheraz Kahn, Mareike Bode, Dimitri Cacouris and Klara Ravat.
This event is part of the transmediale/CTM Vorspiel 2016 festival
