About

Hallenglas

What has fascinated me the most during my 17 years in the Berlin clubbing-scene, is the type of environment that is created in the various venues. It’s not by accident that the last 13 of those years have been at what is now known as Berghain (formally OstGut). I find that when I try to describe what the ‘Berghain experience’ is like, words like family, community and safe space come to mind. But they don't truly suffice…

I’ve witnessed many forms of self-identification expressed by Berghain’s guests. From graphic interpretations of the building as prominently featured coverphotos on Facebook, to tattoos of the logo etched on the nape of necks. Rather than to attempt to describe the ever unique and therefore countless experiences one can have during a “Klubnacht”, I chose instead to investigate the consistent relationship between myself and the building’s very structure. I’ve focused on the spaces which felt like the warm, reassuring embrace of a friend, while in actuality being just a cold, concrete corner. It is in these spaces I could retreat into cognitive seclusion and see myself anew, time and time again.

 

I am Rommelo Yu, an artist who has drawn inspiration from living endless days and nights in the heart of Techno. Hallenglas is a reflection (in the form of an installation) of my personal experience being part of the Berlin Club culture for over the past 17 years.

Roughly 2 years ago, after creating Klubkronenleuchte, I found what became the inspiration to start working on Hallenglas.

Two Japanese artists, Hokusai and Hiroshige created artistic homages to the same mountain, Mount Fuji, even creating their own ukiyo-e series similarly entitled "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji". Erika Eiffel was the founder of OS Internationale; an organization for those who develop significant relationships with inanimate objects. To succeed in her Archery career, she drew inspiration from the Eiffel Tower. She later went on to mary the tower after having ended her 20-year relationship with the Berlin Wall.

I like to describe these two examples as inspiration derived from resonance found between one’s self and a structure. With Hallenglass, I took these ideas further.

 

The result: the use of modern technology to put on display and communicate the sensation provoked by the immersive experience that is Berghain.

Stained glass windows. Each view is imbued with memories through the use of colors, but devoid of any other structures. Just me and the building – one and the vibe.

I need your help to make this a reality.

Supporters of this project receive special gifts; namely, custom designed necklaces, entry to the exhibition, art prints, and even pieces of the artwork are all to be had, relative to the size of the contribution made.

Risks and challenges

The design and production are well underway. However, I need your help to make this project a reality. The funds will be used for CNC milling 300 pieces, material and labor costs.

Because of the immersive nature of the installation, I strongly feel that [premature] publications would only hamper the desired experience. If you have any questions regarding the installation, please feel free to contact me.

I have something big waiting for you... Better than my Klubkronenleuchte. If we are unable to reach our funding goal, we will have to cancel the entire project.
