Kon'voi'
Experimental video, Artist film SciFi | 4k | color | 9'23'' | Germany | 2017
A group of travellers of unknown origin arrive out of nowhere into an open landscape. Over the course of a day, they explore and scan the environment with their unique handmade triangular antennae. Through their sensual decoding of information and hypnotic choreography of sign language, a necessity of care for this strange and beautiful planet emerges.
Claudia Hill is a Berlin-based cross-disciplinary artist who makes objects that create possibilities for personal encounters and community. Hill’s work developed from a career in fashion presenting her collections between New York and Japan. As her designs expanded beyond the boundaries of the industry, she made costumes for choreographer William Forsythe, The Wooster Group, and became a frequent collaborator with choreographer Meg Stuart. Her interventions range from performative designs to constructing large scale, textile based sculptures, and conceiving participatory actions for art centers such as Centre Pompidou Paris, and ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe. Hill’s own artist film Kon’voi’ has been presented in several international film festivals. She is currently developing new work for Supernova, an artist group formed around Damaged Goods´ Sketches/Notebook (extended version) for the HAU Berlin 2018 season.
