Press Info:
Not unlike Bonnie Tyler in the iconic Total Eclipse of the Heart video, enter Berlin’s impenetrable boys boarding school of techno and life, watch the spectacle of digital art and live music, experience light and darkness, come out a different person with an acute sense for rampant beauty and the uncanny.

After the success of our exhibitions Twist in my Sobriety at Kaufhaus Jandorf in October 2013 and Open House at Konzulát for Art Week 2014, Your Mom’s invite you for an exclusive audiovisual artistic show in one of the world’s best and most mysterious clubs for a highly memorable experience.

“Once upon a time there was light in my life, But now there’s only love in the dark, Nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart.”

Los Angeles alternative darling ACTUALLY HUIZENGA’s “video and music, in case you’re unfamiliar, are of the catchy, dance-y, futuristic variety, and are peppered heavily with boner-inducing lyrics […] and beautiful scratchy dance-pop sounds like a tape smuggled back from the future.” (Vice) Her paradoxical video SR will reveal the dark aspect of Actually’s work, as well as its lighter pop side, both reminiscent of Hollywood lifestyle stereotypes. actuallyactually.com

Award-winning and internationally exhibited, BORIS ELDAGSEN’s work revolves around the idea of losing oneself, from the metaphysical to the erotic. Eldagsen hijacks and transforms the external reality to paint an inner room beyond space and time – that of the unconscious. Inaccessible to the rational mind, his photomedia works POEMS compel the iewer to turn to their own memories and feelings. eldagsen.com

Berlin-based Israeli multidisciplinary artist DORIT BIALER uses the language of taxonomy and infographics to break down emotions and abstract situations. At first, she seduces the viewers with colourful and playful shapes, then reveals a disturbing reality. The BERLINER IN A BOX series deals with social clichés and stereotypes by exaggerating them and confronting the viewer using sarcasm and humour. iwanteverything.de

HYENAZ are electronic musicians and Butoh-inspired transgressors. Their upcoming album CRITICAL MAGIC uses techno-shamanic ritual and found sounds to transform contemporary states of domination into sites of interpersonal transformation. Wrapped in elaborate “werehyena” regalia, Hyenaz stalk stages across Europe, Asia and North America with performances oscillating between the hefty ideas of eternity and annihilation. hyenaz.com

JAMIE HARLEY is a Paris and Bangkok-based VIDEO artist, a “cult filmmaker,” according to Dazed & Confused. His recycling of found footage mixed with original material confronts the viewers with the meaning of reality. Harley has released more than 200 videos over the last few years – and under several pseudonyms – for artists such as Koudlam, How To Dress Well, Clams Casino and Twin Shadow, among others. jamieharley.tumblr.com

French electronic composer KOUDLAM’s 50% CHAOS 50% SYMPHONY is a solo live performance embezzling R&B, trance and gabber techno to build the avant-pop dandy’s own icy musical monolith. For over six years, his exotic electronic music has seduced the younger, intellectual or even fashion-obsessed crowds, as well as critics, and has united the corporeal and metaphysical in clubs and festivals across Europe. koudlam.com

KRITZKOM & ROMAIN FREQUENCY (also known as Electrosexual) are both Berlin based French solo DJ/producers who like to explore dark atmospheres, light melodies and the diverse aspects of techno. They have teamed up with Basslet to create a SOUND INSTALLATION that combines nature field recordings and raw machine beats with a customised wearable, in order to trigger different stimuli in the body and mind of each subject through sound and vibration. kritzkom.com | Romain Frequency at DT.de

LISA WASSMANN’s work runs the gamut from contemporary portraiture and documentary PHOTOGRAPHY with a subtle mystical flair to psychedelic collaged images and videos for fashion and lifestyle magazines such as Neon, Pitchfork, and Vice. Music creates its own world, where time is meaningless and a club can become a spaceship; this is how Lisa selected club photos that look from far away in space and time, as do the artists who created these moments. lisawassmann.com

MARIANNE JACQUET is a creative activist. Her cross-media pieces create a playful dialogue between ethology and conceptual art, where reality opposes genuine experiences. The sound installation ESC 3.0 is a primitive net art reflection on communication systems, where a circuit of logs reveals the hidden signal of the architecture and people’s movements, while Meeblip transforms the ghost signal of the logs into music. supermagrittejaco.tumblr.com

MARTIN MÜLLER is as an award-winning illustrator and designer in Berlin. He is known for emotionally-loaded illustration posters and magazine works. In his modern “paintings” he uses cello tape as his main medium. This large-scale light box FIST OF LOVE offers the viewer a range of storylines, originating from the title, the meticulous, raw textures, the iconic gesture of the depicted object, and its trophy-like presence in Berghain. 183off.com

NATACHA MANKOWSKI is an award-winning French architect and artist. She aims to blur the traditional representation of space by considering virtual and real space in terms of technology and experience. She teamed up with Bleech, Onformative and MARTIN EDER to develop an ”archaeology of the virtual” using 3D modelling, photomontage, graphic animations and augmented reality in two distinct VIDEO experiences. natachamankowski.com | martineder.com

PEACHES’ 2000 debut The Teaches of Peaches catapulted her into the spotlight for years to come; Fuck The Pain Away is still the soundtrack of Generation X. She’s since collaborated with Iggy Pop, Joan Jett, Yoko Ono and many more. What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches – a collection of pictures over the years – is already a best seller, and now, Peaches is presenting her own VIDEO interpretation of Total Eclipse of the Heart. facebook.com/officialpeaches

Technologist and musician PETER KIRN is the founder/editor of CDM. His LIVE PERFORMANCE is a burst of rhythmic, colourful synesthesia, using custom software of his own creation. Image and sound are manipulated simultaneously in a fused interface, providing for live improvisation in both media, where Kirn’s work balances delicate moments informed by his classical piano background with raw digital textures and techno crescendos. pkirn.com

The collective PHNTM BEACH work with a variety of media, while concentrating on the longing for a Dionysian tropical night. For the last few years, Phntm Beach have tried to influence the growth process of the FRUCTUS EXOTICUS with sound, wherein a constant exposure to a sine tone of 33 1/3 Hz, created by Heavy Listening, resulted in excessive growth of the fruit. The experiment was video-documented and ratified by experts. phntmbeach.tumblr.com

VALQUIRE VELJKOVIC is a Berlin-based artist. His body of work includes a variety of photography, music and fashion VIDEO, media art performance, as well as installations and music for his own and other artists’ projects such as Tata Christiane or IAMX. Valquire’s art is his simple and heavily adorned statement, with a recurrent aesthetic of mirrored patterns and a certain dark brightness, this time using video techniques from vvvv. valquire.de
