Ausstellungszeitraum : 24/8/2018 – 10/10/2018
Anja Fußbach commits her Berlin solo debut and presents a comprehensive work show in the form of a room installation. Most diverse media and materials are deployed, held together by the characteristic handling of Fußbach, who operates with a free combination of objects and merges them with her artisanal craft. On the one hand the title Candy Land reports on a curatorial overall concept, on the other hand it imparts a first access to the dimension of the show in terms of content. Artificially built places like amusement parks often use an exaggerated symbolic language of a deceived positivism, which turns quickly into fiction and disillusionment by its exaggeration. Places where enacted sweetness rules mostly contain just as much bitterness in reality and reflect human needs in a complex way along with their attached oddity. Fußbach transforms this vocabulary into her own language thereby using the formal capability and placing disconnected autonomic statements about the human in society. The contained ambivalence of pretence and being can be relocated within the stressed relationship which unfolds between the works and work.
Jan Bernstein and Peter Wackernagel
Exhibition : 24/8/2018 – 10/10/2018
The kinetic works by Jan Bernstein hide fundamental questions regarding time underneath their fine elegance. The continuous change of appearance, the delicate whir of perfect running mechanics and the movement itself working as a dynamic content unify his works to a complex reflection of transitoriness. With the minimal aesthetics a necessary silence for contemplation is transferred primarily hypnotizing the viewer by the pure appearance and subsequently confronting him with the visualization of time passing. Bernsteins pieces are gentle and sensitive possibilities to pause in times of loud abstractions.
Peter Wackernagel’s objects appear with their sharp and distanced aesthetics as to have fallen out of a virtual into our real world and report with a cool perfection about imaginary rooms. The idea of visualization of the digital world is one main aspect of Wackernagels work. He transforms this parallel universe into a sphere of possible perception, but changes the familiar light and shadow expectations to keep a sort of strangeness. In this appearance of aloofness Wackernagel raises questions regarding cognition and empiricism of possible forms of objective embodiment which constantly surround us.
