Vika Kirchenbauer is an artist, writer and music producer based in Berlin. With particular focus on affective subject formation, in her work she examines violence as it attaches to different forms of visibility and invisibility. Recently, the Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf, has presented a comprehensive solo exhibition of her work, titled *FEELINGS THAT MOVE NOWHERE*. Her films and installations have also been exhibited in group shows and screenings at, among others, the Tainan Art Museum, Taiwan; the Whitechapel Gallery, London; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; the Berlin International Film Festival, the New York Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival. *Untitled Sequence of Gaps* | 13 mins | 2020 Composed of short vignettes in different techniques and materialities, the essay film approaches trauma-related memory loss via reflections on light outside the visible spectrum – on what is felt but never seen. Carefully shifting between planetary macro scales, physical phenomena and individual accounts of affective subject formation, the artist's voice considers violence and its workings, class and queerness not through representation but from within. Ghosts appear from holes ripped into time by an unremembered childhood, and a recently abolished witch-burning ritual in the artist's rural home town serves as a foil against which to question the politics of visibility. *Untitled Sequence of Gaps* screening via Bahia Colectiva's Platform November 10–17, 2021 Artist Talk via zoom (link to be announced) November 14 at 1pm PST Process Materials available in the archive November 7-21, 2021
