Annett Hardegen 'make me afraid! come closer'

make me afraid! Komm näher is the possible narrative of a love-hate relationship, about the temptations that identity promises and about the inability to fit into the respective offers.

Veranstaltungen in Berlin: Annett Hardegen 'mach mir angst! Komm näher'
© Hardegen

Not being able to take on an identity, no matter how enticing the images and promises seem, is a form of sociopathic refusal. And this impossibility amounts to wounding.

Not fitting in, not belonging, is a pain. A gap, a wound that remains open. And just as a cut in the flesh harbors within itself a striving for healing, a never-ending longing tempts to cover everything like a plaster. Every image, every template, every grouping could be the scab on the wound.

And each offer marks a boundary. Every image we enter, in which we try to resemble, is a door that slams shut.

mach mir angst! tries to transform the gap in the ego into a rupture that is inherent in the images. As a kind of cover. As a mantle, as a protective cover that nestles around us, that conceals us. Cover(s) is a decision to move away from us, is a movement away from us, into a generality to which the original belongs. We renounce originality and move in the free space of a non-identical simulation. Covers are a memory apparatus and the space of a self-superimposition without stability.
