COMFORT ZONE / Carolin Weinert & Frenzy Höhne
The exhibition COMFORT ZONE / Carolin Weinert & Frenzy Höhne took place from 10th of November until 16th of December 2017. The opening day was on 9th of November 2017.
Our comfort zone is our well-being zone. Comfort can also generally be defined as the absence of discomfort, thus the absence of conspicuous unpleasant sensations. It is assumed that the human being constantly compares current situations with previously experienced situations. As long as there are no discrepancies between the experiences and the expectations placed on a particular situation, it is not consciously perceived. Only when differences occur, they are determined in concrete terms. The work of the two artists, Frenzy Höhne and Carolin Weinert, is circling around this exciting network of great gestures, self-mocking aspects, pugnacity and cynicism, which unleashes the limits of comfort. Through formalization and small shifts in ordinary actions, they produce irritations which refer, with ease and irony, to the consolidation of perceptual patterns and the values and norms of our contemporary society.
„I’m continually trying to make choices that put me against my own comfort zone. As long as you’re uncomfortable, it means you’re growing.“ – Ashton Kutcher
