Frederik is an ongoing project that follows the dealings of Frederik and the five Heresies that present themselves to her. Each of these Heresies seeks to defend their view of the Universe to its most minute detail.
The project started with Neon Medieval, an exhibition at Andreas Huber Gallery, where a series of sculptures, drawings and 16mm films represented the moment in the narrative in which Frederik enlists the advice of the five mutually conflicting heresies.
Inspired and enthused by the figures of Friedrich II and medieval culture, Frederik spins a new story. She transforms the historical, transferring it into a fiction with no defined time frame. The narratives that unfold in a labyrinth of plots and shapes draw on broad philosophical and historical context, mixed with references to physics, neuroscience and comedy.
