Posted 8/21/14
A human skull rests atop a modest wooden table flanked by a chronometer, books, musical instruments, an earthenware pot, and swathes of silk. Harmen Steenwyck’s (1612-1656) is emblematic of the vanitas genre, most commonly known for its intimate tabletop tableaux alluding to the transient nature of all worldly goods and pursuits. Upon entering Vanitas – Nothing is Forever Anyway at Berlin’s Georg Kolbe Museum, one immediately encounters an alternative reading of the still life: a tabletop... [more]

Paweł Althamer at KunstHall - Deutsche Bank October 28th, 2011 - January 16th, 2012
Posted 11/13/11
The exterior of the Deutsche Guggenheim, which occupies a corner of the Deutsche Bank building on Berlin’s epic boulevard Unter den Linden, sports a green sign which says “ALMECH” in an italicized cartoony font. Inside the single large exhibition hall that makes up the Deutsche Guggenheim is a glass box opposite the admissions desk. At the far end of the space in a diagonally opposite corner is another glass enclosure. To the left is a growing army of figurative sculptures. To the right, rebar... [more]

      For  – the final project at Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin – the artist John Bock has developed a masterful meta-structure within which he installs works by 63 artists. An eleven-meter-tall walk-in steel construction creates a range of spatial situations over four levels, linking the individual works into a kind of Gesamtkunstwerk, or total artwork. Unlike the classic white cube, this scenario offers the works on show anything but a neutral setting. Within a structure that is functional... [more]

From Here to Eternity   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Paweł Althamer, Olivier Babin, Johanna Billing, Maurizio Cattelan, Tacita Dean, Pierre Huyghe, William Kentridge, Lars Laumann, Gabriel Orozco, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Struth, Guido van der Werve, Lawrence Weiner, Artur Zmijewski at Marian Goodman Gallery July 1st, 2009 - August 28th, 2009
Posted 7/19/09
Taking its title from a Lawrence Weiner work, comprises works that contemplate impermanence and mortality, often from a personalized, humanist point of view. There is nothing fussy or overly sophisticated about this one. It talks the talk and walks the walk.  The show opens with Maurizio Cattelan's simple photograph of a pen that has just run out of ink, then proceeds to two poetic films  by William Kentridge and Guido Van der Werve, respectively. The latter's Nummer Acht... [more]

Posted 12/1/08
The current exhibition of catalogues entitled Fama and Fortune Bulletin at 2nd Cannons is sexy. Partially because of the design: brown, recycled paper, soft covers with uniformed layout and matte pages. Somewhat because of their presentation: aligned on four white shelves with warm spotlights.  But mostly because of their content: every issue one or two artists are invited to design, write and format the contents of the publication. Albert Oehlen, Franz West, Martin Kippenberger, Frances Stark... [more]
