Pimp my Ride to heaven, 2014 installation view Deutsche bank Kunsthalle Berlin
Linchpin of the exhibition ›Vanitas Fair‹ is the installation ›Pimp my Ride to Heaven‹ by Nika Fontaine, created for an exhibition of Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle, Berlin. The dark scintillating installation celebrates the topics of vanitas and rebirth. Focus lays on the examination of different kinds of mortuary practices and the fetish around death and rebirth.
Zohar Fraiman’s artworks approach the vanitas-theme from a different point of view. Her works are concerned with the extremes of interhuman relations. Possessions and bedevilments are the central topics of the oeuvre. The exhibited works deal with a figure of Jewish folk belief, the Dybbuk, who embodies a restless soul of a defunct person.
