Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart: Eva Fàbregas | 06.07.2023–07.01.2024

Editors’ Choice

From 6 July 2023, Eva Fàbregas will occupy the historic hall of the Hamburger Bahnhof with a monumental, site-specific installation. The artist’s largest solo exhibition to date expands the boundaries of the sculptural and invites visitors to a sensual spatial experience. Amorphous sculptures and a sound installation transform the museum’s station architecture, which is characterised by industrial iron girders, into an organically grown space.

Eva Fàbregas (born 1988 in Barcelona, lives and works in London and Barcelona) takes up the architecturally designed passageway situation of the station hall with her work at Hamburger Bahnhof. The soft, corporeal objects characteristic of the artist’s work penetrate the hall from the side. The low tones of the sound installation cannot be clearly assigned spatially, but can be felt physically through their vibrations. The combination of sculpture and sound irritates the perception of the actually clear orientation of the former station hall. The boundaries between technically generated, human and non-human worlds become blurred. The visitors are immersed in this organic-technical environment.
