Announcing Yasmine d'O. as Curator of Bergen Assembly 2022
Bergen Assembly and our convener Saâdane Afif are happy to announce Yasmine d’O. as curator for the fourth edition of Bergen Assembly taking place in 2022.
Yasmine d’O. has been invited by Afif to further develop her ongoing quest in search of The Heptahedron – a solid body with seven enigmatic faces.
“For a few years now, I have been searching for a mysterious form: a solid body with seven faces. The French writer Thomas Clerc revealed its potential existence to me when he interpreted the seven faces of this solid body as the characters of a luscious little play-script that he titled The Heptahedron. The characters in order of apparition are the Professor, the Bonimenteur, the Moped Rider, the Fortune Teller, an Acrobats, the Coalman, and the Tourist. As you might have noticed, these characters resemble a game—a tarot deck—and that’s handy, because my work as a curator requires a certain level of divination. For now, I am becoming better acquainted with the seven characters of “The Heptahedron”, exploring them and discovering them through their puzzling names. They will then become the motifs guiding the seven exhibitions that will shape the seven sides of Bergen Assembly.”
Yasmine d’O. is a curator based in Berlin. Questioning the identity in formation, as opposed to inherited identities, she prefers the harvests to the roots. In her work she explores alternative narratives and using a transdisciplinary approach to fiction, she is concerned with the migration of ideas, hybridisation and mutation, and mythologies of the constructed self. Afif and d’O. began working together in 2014 and continue to collaborate often, most recently for the current exhibition The Fountain Archives and Beyond at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies in Barcelona.
