REVIEWS

“New Dawn”
SILBERKUPPE, Berlin
View of “New Dawn,” Silberkuppe, Berlin, 2014.

by NATASHA GINWALA

When foraging for food in the wild, orangutans conduct an intriguing ritual known as the “fruit stare.”(1) It unleashes a mimetic contract hinged upon intentionality and co-presence.

The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
