Anna Solal



Trampoline is pleased to support the participation of artist Anna Solal in the group exhibition Wet Resistance held in 2022 at the Dortmunder Kunstverein in Germany. This support follows the encounters organised for the Kunstverein’s director Rebekka Seubert, through Trampoline’s professional invitation program in 2020.


The exhibition Wet Resistance begins its narration with a dystopia : in a dried-out world dominated by moisture-repelling technology and artificial intelligence, wet resistance emerges in defence of natural, humid, human qualities, and celebrates moisture as exchange, humour and life. A large-scale installation of tiles and metal plants by José Montealegre becomes a landscape in which the works of eight international artists are embedded. Wet Resistance contrasts the wet, mossy, growing, overgrown and irrational with the dry, clean, rational, technical and broken. The human body, with its high water content, is conceived as an organism entangled with the world in which it lives and which it constantly co-creates.
