Feeler /ˈfiːlə/ noun
an animal organ such as an antenna / aerial or palp that is used for testing things by touch or for searching.

EJTECH /’eitek’/ is the artist duo Judit Eszter Kárpáti and Esteban de la Torre. In their Budapest-based polydisciplinary studio they are working with unstable media, experimental interfaces, electronic textile and augmented materials, investigating the relationship between human, material and technological agencies. The use of sound, space, light and time as material building blocks are prominent in their work. Their work investigates sensorial and conceptual emergent networks between subject and object by creating performative installations, dynamic surfaces and multilayered environments.

The exhibition explores the heights and depths of the invisible substances around us, where the several meter long sublimated and meticulously pleated soft monolith FEELER­, receives and extends out to become an instrument which unveils the spatial quality of LRRH_AERIAL – the tone-of-place, a perceptual space is experienced by the visitors. The soft monolith is tuned with augmented material sensitivity to electromagnetic tides flowing within the space and amplified into audible range. In FEELER, the artists bring attention to the continual flux of energy and vibrant materiality by sculpting the air, combining concepts of space, energy, matter and time into a multisensorial soft sculpture. This self-generating soundscape is autonomous and perpetually modulated by the electromagnetic activity occurring within reach of the monolith’s soft antennae. What is invisible finds its way through.



In Himmelblau, Thomas Lohr photographs the clear, cloudless sky from different locations around the world. While the place from which he takes each photo varies dramatically, the photographs themselves are necessarily of the same sky; only close scrutiny reveals subtle variations in light and colour between them. This is Lohr’s purpose. Rather than accenting formal or aesthetic differences between views of the sky, the photographer uses the technology of the camera to evidence their commonality. We all live under the same blue sky. We all look up at the same blue sky. And the act of looking up is perhaps as near to a universal human experience as there is. Himmelblau absorbs its viewer into the sky’s blue immensity without letting them forget where it is that they stand.

Sagí Amir Gross & FRZNTE

Performance & Dance

On the evening before the Art Düsseldorf opening, the choreographer Sagí Amir Gross shows a second solo performance at LRRH_ AERIAL. It is called Vortex again.
In fluid dynamics, this term stands for a rotational movement of flowing elements around an axis. That is what FRZNTE from Berlin stands for as well. She will perform at the pole after Gross’s Vortex.

The half-hour event takes place in the context of our two current exhibitions: Feeler by EJTECH and Himmelblau by Thomas Lohr. Both installations are part of LRRH_’s ongoing Kite project.

Sagí Amir Gross is a queer Israeli /Dutch theater director, choreographer, filmmaker and dancer. His creation Vortex explores the theme of identity formation and the need of belonging. In it, Gross questions his physical, choreographic signature, which he calls Physical Script.
Gross was educated at The Dutch National Ballet Academy, Amsterdam, Bat-Dor Dance Academy and Tellma Yellin High School for the Arts, Tel-Aviv. Since September of 2021 he has been the artistic director and choreographer of WDTanztheater; since 2012 director of the foundation GrossDanceCompany Amsterdam. Gross has collaborated with international companies and academies such as: Sydney Dance Company PPY, Staatstheater Braunschweig, Grand Rapids Ballet, Michigan, Architanz, Tokyo, The Royal Ballet Conservatory The Hague, Busan Dance Academy, South Korea, to name only a few. His dance film and performance Silent Force received great international attention.

FRZNTE is an East Berlin-born dj, pole performer and cultural producer. She has worked with Transmoderna and Peaches, among others, and occasionally tours with Apex Anima. In her pole performances she combines performative, choreographic and sculptural elements, often referring to the architectural context.
FRZNTE would like to be announced with this quote from Audre Lorde’s The Use of Eroticism: Eroticism as Power: “Recognizing the power of the erotic within our lives can give us the energy to pursue genuine change within our world, rather than merely settling for a shift of characters in the same weary drama. For not only do we touch our most profoundly creative source, but we do that which is female and self-affirming in the face of a racist, patriarchal, and anti-erotic society.”

T Dönges is a visual artist and technically implements the musical concepts of both artists. Usually Dönges spends most of the time participating, and producing techno & notable electronica.
