BODIES WITH(IN) FENCES
In "bodies (with)in fences" Saskia Hölbling and Laurent Goldring go in search of new anchors and territories, without wishing to compete with the shrill seduction strategies of urban space in their crudeness. The sphere of action lies outside of any glamour and luxury and far removed from any comfort zone. Quite in its function as a multiple barrier, a monument made of construction gratings opens up spaces and volumes of exclusion or of display. It outlines its own control systems or puts up walls.
In the middle of the monumental sculpture, which raises almost insuperable barriers, three bodies repeatedly and continually go about dissecting their rigid surroundings, ploughing through the many-layered barriers and thereby keeping the system in suspense. In bodies (with)in fences Saskia Hölbling and Laurent Goldring have created a delicate but noisy work, which through an inescapable loop designs a perpetuum mobile that necessarily leads to a dead end.
