Antje Majewski, 2012

Nest

With Nest, painter, video artist and photographer Antje Majewski (1968) has created a video work that reflects a complex set of approaches to painting, the notation of the visible, magical practices, rituals and animism.

We see the artist leaving her studio in Berlin-Wedding with a construction lamp, powered by colored electric cables, to bring selectively chosen objects, structures and scenes out of the darkness. She appears to be following a prescribed path, which she continues to follow until the point at which she paints her own hands and face as a ritual act before finally lying down on an urban wasteland of silver balls – "metallic seeds" – in a nest on the floor.
