Julius von Bismarck at alexander levy 5/3/13 Posted 5/3/13

The gallery alexander levy is pleased to be able to present three new work complexes from Julius von Bismarck from 26 April to 15 June 2013 in the exhibit Unfall am Mittelpunkt Deutschlands. Like "Punishment I" in the previous year, the second solo exhibit of Bismarck in the gallery is characterised by a confrontation of "nature" and "culture". A basswood tree was planted in February 1991 in the small community of Niederdorla in the Thuringian province. In April 2013, the tree inexplicably became the stage for a stran... [more]

Guido Canziani Jona at Galerie Mario Mazzoli 3/23/13 Posted 3/23/13

Galerie Mario Mazzoli is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Guido Canziani Jona in Berlin titled "A synthesis. Emerging as one." The main focus in the work of Canziani Jona is the merging of sound, painting and video into one central work, with the idea of vitalizing the static one of his main concerns. For this, Canziani Jona finds an artistic form of expression in the invariably stronger interconnection of video, painting and sound. The process of fusion is not concealed with Ca... [more]

Frauke Boggasch at Cruise & Callas May 18th, 2012 - June 30th, 2012
Posted 5/23/12

That sunny dome, those caves of ice — den Titel ihrer zweiten Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Cruise & Callas hat die Künstlerin Frauke Boggasch dem Gedicht Kubla Khan des englischen Romantikers Samuel Taylor Coleridge entnommen. Niedergeschrieben nach den Eindrücken eines Opiumrausches steht die Verszeile für Coleridges Spiel mit den Realitäten und für die romantische Kluft, die der Lyriker in die Beschreibung der Naturgewalten einbettet. Die vereinten Gegensätze, die sich mit dem Ausstellungstite... [more]

(Image: Leila Pozooki, Just For Living Room, Neon light, 60 x 140 cm, Ed. of 4, 2011; © Gallery Isabelle Van Den Eynde) Leila Pozooki (b. 1977, Tehran, Iran) Leila Pazooki’s work explores the aesthetics of context. She questions the creative force that working within and transcending certain moral, religious or ideological frameworks can have. She uncovers the nature of this transcendence, how the magnitude of transgressions is so often entrenched in the context of where a person lives o... [more]

(Image: Asta Gröting; Familienwerkbänke, 2011; © carlier | gebauer) Asta Gröting (b. 1961, Herford, Germany) The fourteeen Familienwerkbänke which Asta Gröting has brought in formation at gallery carlier|gebauer, open up the idea of the family as much as that of the work for reconsideration. The objects document thirteen families, prehistories of the artists, whose parents handed over their work benches for this exhibition, while at the same time the exhibition assembles a new family, the el...

His art works encompass sculpture, drawing and installation, displaying a complicated but subtle interest in bodies and organisms, human and otherwise, via scale, subject and materiality.

(Image: Björn Dahlem, Schwarzes Loch, 2009, New wool, linen, 180 x 220 cm; © Galerie Guido W. Baudach) Björn Dahlem (b. 1974, Munich, Germany) The artist Björn Dahlem represents the modern type of sculptor. His sculptural creations are rooted not in stability but in what is fragile—for fragility, Dahlem believes, is the defining condition of human knowledge. Profoundly knowledgeable about intellectual and cultural history (including the history of popular culture), Dahlem transposes complex iss... [more]

The artwork is thoughtfully put together and works well within the space.  There's a lot in the show without over crowding.  It's also fun to see how he displays the theme of doubles and triples. [more]

Frauke Boggasch + Adrian Lohmüller at Cruise & Callas September 23rd, 2009 - November 7th, 2009
Posted 10/22/10

The pictures of Frauke Boggasch, painted in many glazed layers and sombrely romantic appearing, are conceptual and above all a confrontation with classic questions on painting. In the glazes she buries the knowledge of painting’s conditions. Archetypes, confrontations and allusions are hardly or not at all visible anymore. These layers and histories face up against the completed picture, which on the surface display impasto application and appear almost manically worked. Boggasch employs this mania... [more]

Sibylla Dumke, Katja Strunz at Cruise & Callas May 1st, 2009 - May 30th, 2009
Posted 10/22/10

It is the joy of colour and its combination, as we know it from looking at beautiful carpets, that Sibylla Dumke calls forth in her work. A grid structure assembled from triangles is typical of the artist’s abstract paintings, whose planes Dumke paints in vibrant colour. The style of composition can appear almost coarse, but proves itself to be just as delicately employed as the colour. Carpets are actually a source of inspiration for Dumke. The patterns “of ancient African carpetsspontaneously break... [more]

by
Michael Stokes at STYX Projects September 8th, 2010 - September 29th, 2010
Posted 9/11/10

Stokes seems to have the creative freedom that may have other artists, serving more commercial or intellectual masters, becoming anxious. It seems like Stokes just makes whatever he feels like, or works with whatever the sea provides, as it were. It's as though a fisherman waits patiently to see what might bite. But surely this reading is too simple. A reading of this body of work involves a certain amount of time, for there are no dry references to art history or to art theory. Stokes also do... [more]

(Excerpt from 'Ellen Harvey' posted on Whitney Biennial 2008. Found on http://whitney.org/www/2008biennial/www/?section=artists&page=artist_harvey) Watch Harvey guide us through her work in this short Whitney-sponsored video. An artist with a keen sense of both art’s potential and its limitations, Ellen Harvey was trained not only as a painter but also as an attorney, and fittingly her work balances an auteur’s faith with a lawyer’s skepticism. From her works for public spaces to her gallery-based practice, Harvey’s be... [more]
