A conversation with Kerstin Cmelka

The Animals

Austrian-born, Berlin-based artist Kerstin Cmelka creates work that navigates the spaces between improvisation, gesture, performance, reference and reenactment. She is currently pre-producing “The Animals”, a deconstruction of method acting and anthropomorphic depictions of non-human fellow Earthlings that will be hitting white cubes, black boxes and interesting cultural spaces inbetween next year. Collaborators include cinematographer-filmmaker Volker Sattel and polymath Mario Mentrup. Mentrup’s band, Pasadena Projekt, will contribute to the soundtrack.
Cmelka has released two teasers. No. 1 gives a taste of the upcoming drama, while no. 2 features a musical interlude by Pasadena Projekt. Stay tuned more more updates.
