Under the Mango Tree

The two artists explore the relationship between space, body and sculpture. The poetic exhibition title BODIES WITHOUT ORGANS is a reference to the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, who developed the abstract idea of a body that lacks all organs. The two artists understand the organ-free body as a system without order, which in this way becomes changeable and flexible. Accordingly, the function of the sculptures developed by Chitayat and Schillig is not predetermined. Despite specific properties such as material, shape and dimension, the space-filling objects are neither furniture nor architecture; their use is open, playful and intuitive.

Chitayat and Schillig’s origins lie in architecture, a field in which the purpose of construction plays an essential role. At the same time, the two artists are interested in creating open forms that invite you to make the objects your own and use them as you wish. The Liebling Haus – White City Center, a German-Israeli center for the promotion of urbanism, architecture and monument protection in Tel Aviv, commissioned this work as part of their larger exhibition “Welcome to the Republic” and invites visitors to an interactive exploration of the a newly emerging agora today. The Gallery Under the Mango Tree is proud to continue this dialogue in Berlin. Three fragments, which occupy the gallery’s exhibition space as “satellites”, were transferred to Berlin as an idea for the project from Tel Aviv.

The use of the installation in the gallery “Under The Mango Tree” is open: You can sit on it, touch it, relate your own body to it. In this way, the artists overcome supposed spatial boundaries and place bodies in an intuitive relationship to their surroundings and material.

Since the project, was created over a long period of time in quarantine, the digital space was of central importance for the collaboration between Berlin and Tel Aviv. The characteristics of both cities are digitally / audiovisually combined in the installation.

The exhibition is Supported by NEUSTART KULTUR AND STIFTUNGKUNSTFONDS, GERMANY.
