In the context of the rhizomatic summer residency Emily Barsi is invited to curate a project of Tassilo Letzel. The German artist will develop new work at the NDSM-TreeHouse guest studio. An exhibition and performance will take place at proeflokaal KULTER in Amsterdam Bos en Lommer and in Amsterdam- Noord.
The work of Tassilo Letzel is focused on the paradox of the status quo within a society permanently undergoing changes. His artistic research deals with two geographic areas: suburbia on the one hand and rural areas on the other. Where farmland is absorbed by the periphery of the cities one can find undefined places being no longer rural and being not yet urban: terrain vague. During his stay at Amsterdam Tassilo Letzel will develop a project inspired by the urban and territorial transformation of Stadsdeel Noord. Tassilo Letzel (*1979 in Munich) works as a freelance cameraman, photographer and filmmaker. In his work he combines documentary techniques like film, photography and tracking-/bicycle-tours with sculptural works and installations. More information at http://tassiloletzel.de/
