Andrea Lehmann (D) - GREENELAND

Andrea Lehmann has created, painted and built a wonderful, picturesque room installation. On the scene: the Euphonia, an instrument to create human voice tones – the precursor of the telephone, which Alex Graham Bell claimed for and patented. Motivated by greed and an inbred philanthropic interest for the deaf-mute and their eternal eugenic prevention. We enter Greeneland, a special parallel world, where to find the details and other historical anecdotes of the technologies of the late 19th Century, and the worries and sorrows of the late British Empire of the first half of the 20th Century. Lehman takes us into a game of self-reflection and self-questioning of the picturesque media and sculptural space amongst the visitors and her own work.
