Softly John: Bea1991
For the last show of the year, Weserhalle invites Dutch multidisciplinary artist BEA1991 to present a mix of her visual works produced under the alias “Softly John” – the character she embodies in photography.
A gentle ex-geography teacher, John is balding wildly. Hair peeps out from his nostrils and ear holes. His body moves along with a comfortable old age. His trousers sag a bit. John doesn’t care about his appearance, but he cares about what he sees around him. He observes with grateful eyes, befriending the objects he encounters.
Weserhalle will become the space in which John presents his work, attaching findings to the wall as if looking for patterns, decoding a new language as the images blur together.
