“Mystica” was a painting and multimedia installation by the Düsseldorf/London artist collective hobbypopMUSEUM. Its members are Sophie von Hellermann, Christian Jendreiko, Matthias Lahme, Dietmar Lutz, André Niebur, and Marie-Céline Schäfer.
We believe strongly that in artistic collaboration lies something other than compromise, something very valuable. As a group we create site-specific installations. These installations can be seen as textures woven out of figures that are linked together by iconographic and formal criteria. The arsenal of figures spans from painting, drawing, photo, film, and sound to words, performance, sculpture, and architecture. Which form the figures will have depends on the basic idea and how this idea is developed by the group, while working on the site of the exhibition space.
We see our work as a journey, with each exhibition representing a station on this journey. This image is enhanced by the fact that we travel, meet up, disperse, and reconvene for our exhibitions all over the world.
Here we are looking to transform the finite space of the gallery into an infinite space, employing a form of alchemy that we have specially developed for this purpose. Playing a decisive role will be a huge fan, a musical organ, and an overall kaleidoscopic effect. And by melting our individual cores, we will achieve a massive release of beautiful energy.
