The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills

The second solo exhibition of Düsseldorf and London based artist CHRIS SUCCO, *The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over The Hills*, features new sculptures, collages and two new workgroups on canvas. In his upcoming exhibition Succo shows his large-sized "Dye Paintings" for the first time. The motives and patterns were created by the artist, printed with a special technique onto cotton and then hand-dyed. The dyeing process is an association of Succo´s work with analogue photography whereby the canvas replaces the photographic paper and the dye replaces the developer. Although the work is bas...

Halina Kliem: the Turnabout

We find here a characteristic logic, the peculiar logic of the "insideout" (‡ l'envers), of the "turnabout,", of a continual shifting from top tobottom, from front to rear, of numerous parodies and travesties,humili- actions, profanations, comic crownings and uncrownings. Mikhail Bakhtin I have spent all my life with dance and being a dancer. It's permitting life to use you in a very intense way. Sometimes it is not pleasant. Sometimes it is fearful.But nevertheless it is inevitable. Martha Graham Can you meet me halfway, right at the borderline?That's where I am gonne wait for youI'll be loo... [more]

Evan Gruzis New Work

    DUVE Berlin is pleased to present Quazai, the second Berlin solo exhibition by Evan Gruzis. As the title - a combination of the words ‘quasi’ and ‘banzai’- suggests, Quazai is a selection of work that emphasizes the absurd through hybridity and conceptual nuance. Recent to Gruzis’s work is a layered process used to produce three new canvases. Starting with one of his ink paintings as a background, Gruzis collages objects onto its surface in low relief. This assemblage is photographed and printed onto canvas, which is lastly embellished with paint. With Self-Portrait As A Self-Portrait... [more]

Clash of Reality

by E-Slant Team
  DUVE Berlin is pleased to present * Hot Pink Lemonade *, Marcus Knupp’s first solo exhibition in Berlin. The exhibition features a series of new paintings and drawings. The overriding theme of Marcus Knupp‘s works might best be described as a clash of reality. Knupp is a painter who uses the canvas as a catalyst for dreaming up surreal worlds, mocked up futuramas and distorted, drug-induced dreamscapes that seem to occupy numerous realities at once. Knupp constructs his worlds intuitively from a vast array of source material known to anyone who is familiar with American cable TV, comi... [more]

Fallen Utopia

by E-Slant Team
"Allegories", Walter Benjamin wrote in 1928, "are, in the realm of thoughts, what ruins are in the realm of things" (178). And, to give his thought a backward reading, ruins have long been taken as allegories: for the unsettling experience of change, for the moment in which man-made creation can no longer resist natures destructive forces. Kjærgaard's work evolves around the existential struggle between work of man and nature at stake within ruins and desolated landscapes - crumbling architectural structures and empty urban shells; mines, ships, watchtowers, sheds, and factories. All o... [more]

Kepenek's captivating crush

by Ana Finel Honigman
        While Yoshihiro Suda creates gentle gestures invoking nature's oft-overlooked loveliness, at DUVE galerie Ali Kepenek presents a grand, generous homage to the questionable beauty of young, scrappy Australians.  One such subject is Geoffrey Lowe, whom Goldsmith PhD Jan Hietala describes in the exhibition essay for Kepenek's 'From Beyond Black' exhibition as "one of those adorable men coming up to London from Australia. He was born 1982 in Sydney. He works at a leading fashion house in London. He loves the party. Yet he is something much more." What more he is, however, is not convincingly d... [more]

Space Cinema

by E-Slant Team
We are pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of the New York based artist Sarah Oppenheimer at DUVE Berlin.Oppenheimer's work evolves from an engagement with space through sensory perception and social interaction. Visual perception and bodily movement are central to her practice; through her architectural interventions a cinematic experience of space is created.In recent work, methodical perforation of architecture raises questions regarding the space of exhibition as institutionalised narrative. Horizontal Roll, an installation of holes through the St. Louis Art Museum, created new va... [more]
