Greta Hauer: IMMUNE ZONE
@ROOMSERVICE 485 Lorimer St 2Fl. Brooklyn NY 11211
SARAHCROWN is pleased to announce IMMUNE ZONE an exhibition by London based Artist and Designer Greta Hauer (Germany/UK) who will transform the Gallery into an enclave for outsiders and the lonesome.
The exhibition proposes a type of legal futurism in which the societal and political system is defined by un-adapted norms and codes of the local culture. By interweaving fiction and reality, the work stages modes of kinship and offers a sense of belonging and alternative bureaucratic conventions.
Greta Hauer spent more than a month in Brooklyn, NY, interacting with the local community and diverse subcultures and studying their stereotypes of communication, daily objects, codes of conduct and claiming territories. Drawing on these moral and visual codes, Hauer developed objects of art, fictional legal guidelines and an illusory environment that will be accessible by the audience.
The constitutive elements of the exhibition will therefore narrate the local history and its problems and at the same time offer ideas of ganglands and an alternative to today’s already conflicting politics. By entering the IMMUNE ZONE the visitors will find themselves within a scripted space, defined by imaginary laws that undermine our conventional ideas of protective measures
In conjunction with the exhibition and the annual Bushwick Open Studios a legal walk-in service will be provided on Saturday October 1, 2016 from 3 – 5 pm. Please contact the gallery for further details.
Opening reception: September 21, 2016 from 7 – 9 pm
Exhibition: September 21 – October 3, 2016 on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays 3-7 pm

About the artist
Greta Hauer is a Designer and Artist living and working in London who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2014. Situated within the socio-political context her practice aims to rethink existing structures and environments often considering the public realm as a resource. Projects result in a multidimensional work and the creation of scripted events and spaces using mediums such as film, performance and objects which then serve as artefacts.
