Caught in the Landslide

by Nicole Rodríguez Woods
Rhapsodie, Jérémie Martino’s latest solo show at Berlin’s Freies Museum, revolves around the series Moments de Détente dans la Vie d’un Peintre — a collection of viscerally rendered, semi-abstracted paintings of explosions. Capturing the seconds after a blast and the inevitability of the fall, French Berlin-based artist Martino depicts a wide range of explosions that vary in scale, unified by the softened, harmonious, almost lyrically mature use of color and subtly precise painterly techniques. Neither scrawling gesture nor photorealism are employed to convey this dynamic subject. Rather, he ap... [more]

Dossier Magazine: Thomas Mader on AND THEN YOU REALLY GET INTO IT

Clemens Wilhelm’s art really does come a long way. Especially his newest photoinstallations Der Weg nach Venedig (The Road to Venice) and The Meaning of Life. For the first installation the artist hiked all the way from Munich to the Venice Biennale, taking a photo every 15 minutes for the whole of his journey. Thus he created a very beautiful and impressive documentation of this voyage, which brings Goethe’s Italian Voyage to mind. One might argue that Wilhelm’s journey is far from being romantic, especially considering some photos just seem very banal. Others by comparison seem very romanti... [more]
