Sibylla Dumke at Cruise & Callas September 14th, 2013 - October 26th, 2013
Posted 10/22/13
Sibylla Dumke is showing for the third time in the gallery Cruise&Callas. For some time now her work has been quite intuitive having been inspired by the fragments of nature and products of civilization. At the current solo show she installed a scenario where the opposing elements are combined together. Collected branches are tinted by Japan Ink. Consequently, her objects are captured and held together by black colour. The artist’s 'Mumifying’ has several layers of meaning which are... [more]

  In 1968 the Ghanaian author Ayi Kwei Armah published a brutal and visceral novel of (then) contemporary, post-Inde­pendent Ghana, titled “The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born”. Armah recounts an unnamed man’s struggle in a soci­ety rotten to the core, a result of the aftermath of colonial­ism, and the failures of the new regime. A dream deferred… The exhibition The Beautyful Ones takes as its starting point Armah’s utopian lament for a better Africa, and the ongoing problematics of the... [more]

When the intersolar spaceship Pioneer 10 was launched in 1972, it was equipped with a gilt metal plate – a message to potential extraterrestrial intelligence. The plate showed the schematic depiction of a man and a woman in relative proportions to the space shuttle, an interstellar map, and a model of the hyperfine transition of hydrogen. These signs were meant to be “universally” comprehendible, even for those potential life forms in outer space. The exhibition at the Kleine Humboldt... [more]

The herringbone parquet was first adopted as an alternative to stone and marble inlay on the floors of French palaces. Using wood could be seen as a compromise, the acceptance of time shifting the material, which must be cared for and maintained. As with many other objects woven through our social fabric, today’s parquet is an almost imperceptible touch of wealth. It is handcrafted luxury made affordable. It is the silent triumph of man standing upright, of his right to step on the... [more]

The group-exhibition »Meta-Ikon« mainly presents photography as the dominant medium for recording and generating images, and as the contemporary appropriation of the historically acknowledged canon of images. Accordingly, the show is an arrangement of new statements that are not documenting reality, but refer to existing images of Western culture found in painting, photography, sculpture and film. Using different strategies the artists transform the collective images/icons of our cultural... [more]

Throughout, the impact of digital technologies – facilitating rapid distribution of content, the breakdown of production – consumption hierarchies, and the dismemberment of the moving-image – is in focus. The featured artworks announce the wrack of the Twentieth Century entertainment industry in the download era. In so doing, Say Goodbye to Hollywood alludes to the future of... [more]

In 1992, after he had returned from his exile in Switzerland, IPUT / ST. TURBA transformed the Statue of Liberty in Budapest into a soul. He covered the 40-metre-tall statue – which had been built under the Stalinist regime on the occasion of the liberation of Budapest by the Red Army from the Nazi occupation – in a huge, white gown with two black holes for eyes and it blew there in the wind for four days above Budapest. The Statue of Liberty’s Soul remains, more then twenty years after... [more]
