A matrix of life, nature and the cosmos, Antje Majewski’s World of Gimel is the artist’s own private universal museum in a nutshell, featuring a septet of objects: a clay teapot in the form of a human hand, a shell, a pot made of fragrant wood, a Buddha’s hand citron, a hedge apple, a white stone, a meteorite—acquired by Majewski during her numerous travels and encounters. The exhibition is a book; the book is an exhibition; the World of Gimel—a hybrid of Aleph and Babel, of fantasy and scientific knowledge—is a language laboratory, a structure en abîme, Majewski’s unique venture into the universe of things and their other identity.
