Event Details

We cordially invite you to the vernissage of Shantel Liao’s exhibition On/Under the Skin + Berlin Premiere of SPELLBOUND + shibari performance Mayfly by Gestalta & Shantel Liao.

Exhibition Shantel Liao

Shantel Liao started with photography and later mixed-media calligraphy. She is fascinated by the power of identity nowadays, how it shaped us in various ways, physically and mentally. From gender to culture, how we connected with our own history and the greater environment. Solo and group exhibitions were hold in Taipei, Tokyo, L.A., Athens and Paris since 2010.



Film Screening SPELLBOUND

The vernissage evening will also include the Berlin premiere of Uli Kaffei’s short film SPELLBOUND, featuring Gestalta + Marika (Gorgone). There will be a Q&A after the screening with the director and the protagonists.



Shibari performance Mayfly

‘Mayfly’ is an ongoing collaboration between calligraphy artist Shantel Liao and shibari artist Gestalta. It takes its name from a text in the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry (‘Classic of Poetry’ – c. 11th – 7th century BC), which grieves the short yet beautiful life of a mayfly, and is used as a repeating motif throughout. It explores the tensions between nature and development, as we learn how to inhabit the space in-between our heritage, and an increasingly uncertain future.
