The artist Pauline Curnier Jardin will open an exhibition at Kunsthalle Winterthur in October 2023, bringing together all the works related to the Luna Kino universe. This large installation/cinema was first shown at ChertLüdde in 2022.

Luna Kino is an immersive installation created by Curnier Jardin in collaboration with the scenographer Rachel Garcia and inspired by the true story of Luna-Lichtspiegel, a cinema in Berlin kept open by women during and immediately after World War II. Luna Kino alludes to a multitude of references and historical contexts: women’s roles in Northern European society; iconic women in entertainment history; moon, domestic and cinematographic imaginaries; traditions on menstruation and virginity.

Pauline Curnier Jardin is a Berlin-Rome-based artist working across installation, performance, film, and drawing. The artist is known for creating fictional cinematic narratives while using the language of documentary filmmaking or historical research. Often accompanied by large installations that are musical, sculptural and architectural, Curnier Jardin unfolds and amplifies the formal and conceptual thresholds between the two mediums. She is the winner of the 2019 German Preis der Nationalgalerie, the 2021 Villa Romana Prize in Firenze, and recipient of the 2019-2020 Villa Medici fellowship in Rome.

Curnier Jardin will next open her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands at Centraal Museum Utrecht. In this show, titled Hot Flowers, Warm Fingers, the French artist will display work from the past five years together with presentations created especially for this exhibition.
