‘Grinders’ reviewed on photo-eye blog.

-------------------------

‘Grinders’ has been awarded third prize of Kassel Dummy Award 2017.

Jury statement

We were all both fascinated and disgusted by Grinders, ‘an encounter with DIY cyborgs’ by Hannes Wiedemann. There is something absolutely repulsive and yet current and relevant about this community of ‘body-hackers’ who perform the somewhat disturbing ritual of implanting devices and gadgets into their human body. Wiedemann portrays body-hacking by mingling an almost surgical distance with a visceral approach and he does it with great balance, blissfully staying out of poignancy and judgment. A disquieting feeling of cyborg lust is perceivable on the few faces that appear in the dummy. I once met a very talented artist affected by schizophrenia who believed the government had implanted a microchip under his skin to spy on his subversive life, as he had been part of an extremely leftist movement during the Italian Years of Lead. Who would have thought that what can be seen as the paranoia of a problematic activist artist of the 1970s could become, decades after, a real fetishistic ritual of people who take pleasure in having a mechanical or electronic device embedded in their body?
