Toni Schmale: HOT HOT HOT

Exhibition Overview


wildkatze

In the works that she realizes in mediums such as installation, performance, sculpture, animation, video and drawing Toni Schmale examines and questions the gender constructions that exist in social power relations. References to subjects such as sexuality and gender, fetishism, sport and physical exertion open up in both the formal designs and also in regard to the assignment of titles. While early works took physicality or physical exertion as their subject more directly – her video documented box performance wo die angst ist geht es lang (2005), for example – Schmale’s current sculptural work seems more abstract. In place of a direct representation of the body there is an empty space, which is palpable and it induces us to imagine our own position. Her installations negotiate gender policy utopias and queer identities in a way that is unbendingly radical.
