Statement

Kenno Apatrida, originally from South America, has been exiled in Berlin for the past two decades and has been part of the city's radical creative transformation. His works, which go against the tide of aloof post modernity, are phantasmagorical, spiritual and transcendental, humorous and at times painfully genuine.

Apatrida's practice refers to philosophical precursors ranging from shamanistic rituals to the nightmares of William Blake and Henry Füseli, William Burroughs, political junk from the former GDR and Zen Buddhism. Collected from various squats and abandoned flats in Berlin, the "cultural detritus" Apatrida incorporates in his work are re-inscribed and re-positioned, undergoing an alchemical process with the results returned to us as icons of a spirituality specific to our modern age.
