111 and Co Verlag present “Various-Verschiedenes”
The art and studio house Torstraße 111 and Co Verlag will unveil 2 new exhibition spaces featuring the work of James Bullough (Street art), Michael Ebert (Installation), Ingo Fröhlich (Drawing), Rebecca Loyche (Video) and Ulrike Seyboth (Painting).
A group of artists have restored the site of 111 to its original structure for the sole purpose of fostering a place for contemporary art. Joining 111 is Co Verlag the new project from the former MMX team. After a full year of renovating, the space will reopen to the public parallel to the onset of Gallery Weekend and the Berlin Biennale. Featuring the artwork of 5 differently disciplined Berlin-based artists.
Coming off his year-long street art project "The Cave Berlin" in which he hosted and collaborated with numerous international street artists, James Bullough shares this new work for the first time with the public mixing street art painting techniques with the accuracy of his photorealistic oil paintings to create a series of “Giant” portraits.
Michael Ebert's installation work deals with poetic reduction and minimization to expose the essential. He aims to show the fragility of past memories and goals and the conflicting results of perception of the individual and the other.
The large-scale works on paper by Ingo Fröhlich reveal a simplistic, methodical and repetitious mark making process. The grandeur of the rooms influence the site-specific installation of his drawings.
Rebecca Loyche’s work always plays with perception and her three-channel audio and video installation “The Art Fair” address the dynamics that transact at such a place through the use of profiling by three professionals.
Ulrike Seyboth's colorful and contrasting delicate paintings activate the inside of the partially preserved factory ruin space. Her work echoes the vitality and richness as well as decay and emptiness in such a place.
