Blain|Southern Berlin will stage an exhibition during Berlin’s ABC weekend entitled Selektionseffekte.

For this exhibition, Anton Henning, Marius Bercea and Rachel Howard have invited a single artist they admire to exhibit work alongside their own. The resultant exhibition will be a presentation of paintings by the six artists in the long gallery on the second floor of Blain│Southern Berlin— all united by the curatorial chain proposed by this exhibition.

Henning’s practice explores a synthesis of the arts, with paintings that fuse the formal language of art history and kitsch. He has  chosen another German artist, Hartmut Neumann, whose obsessive collage-like paintings are an explosive vision of shapes and colour, which explore the relationship between art and nature. 

Romanian artist Marius Bercea’s landscape paintings present an amalgamation of childhood memories and personal experiences of the Romanian revolution. Bercea has selected the Serbian artist, Ivan Grubanov, whose work focuses on the freedom of expression and communication, and much like Bercea, relies on history and memory.

The figurative and abstract paintings of Rachel Howard use the expressive potential of colour to explore the complexities of human emotion. Howard has chosen fellow British artist Matthew Burrows, whose figurative works have a dark and sometimes absurdist edge.
