The artist Cyrill Lachauer designed a five-part reading of his Seenotizen (Sea Notes) as an intermezzo until the opening of his exhibition in Haus der Kunst. These writings include notes, thoughts, observations and stories in which the experienced blends with the remembered and the imagined with told. Lachauer has now completed the reading’s second part, taking us on the Pacific Coast Highway along the American west coast, the legendary route that connects Canada and Mexico.
Since 2012, Lachauer has published his Seenotizen in an essay series of Flipping the Coin, a Berlin label dedicated to artistic practices situated at the interface between art and music. The Seenotizen are texts about travelling, being out and about.
In his upcoming exhibition, Cyrill Lachauer. I am not sea, I am not land, which is presented by the Sammlung Goetz in Haus der Kunst, the artist explores the idea of land in its most varied forms. Lachauer’s works are autobiographical and are created on mythical-ritual hikes, alpine tours and extended journeys to other continents.
