Gallery Weekend Berlin is here again and 032c is here to help. Take a look at our best bets for navigating through the openings.
Timur Si-Qin – Recent Horizons
Growing up in a multi-cultural environment has helped inform Si-Qin’s unique sensitivity to materials, in addition to his interest in contemporary discourses in philosophy and science. For Recent Horizons, the artist will show sculptural LED panels playing edited footage, most of which the artist took on his smartphone. Each of the videos will be branded by PEACE, a visual identity consisting of a PEACE slogan and a redesigned Taoist Taiji symbol––which the artist has used on several occasions in recent years.
Coinciding with the opening of Koenig Gallery’s new location at St. Agnes, German artist Katharina Grosse will show large, colour-intensive paintings which seem to have been made for the lofty, expansive space in which they are shown.
Daniel Keller – Kai ♥ Dalston Bushwick
For Daniel Keller’s first solo exhibition in Germany, Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler will show edible Spirulina algae growth chambers, 3d printed bas-reliefs, and freestanding glassworks culled from the broken windows of a newly constructed Kreuzberg condo smashed by anti-gentrification activists.
Galerie Max Hetzler
Swedish artist Ida Ekblad will show new large scale paintings for her eponymous show at Gallery Weekend Berlin. The artist’s dizzying colour palette mixes references to graffiti aesthetics, cartoon characters and digital or virtual imagery, producing a body of work that evades every definite classification.
Cyprien Gaillard – Where Nature Runs Riot
Where Nature Runs Riot is centered around a new film created by Gaillard over the past three years. Shot on location in Berlin, Cleveland, and Los Angeles, the artist reflects upon the dis- and relocation of landmarks and vegetation, misguided urban planning and cultural vandalism, and the anachronisms that constitute the world around us.
Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff
Berlin-based duo Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff will present photographs shot in apartment viewings in London, Berlin and Zurich. A musical performance by Trevor Lee Larson which is heard but not seen will accompany the exhibition, exploring ideas of the interior and exterior, as well as that of the stage.
Isa Genzken – El Salvador
Extrapolating from Genzken’s major Hyperbolo sculpture from 1980, El Salvador juxtaposes the eponymous work with selected pieces from the 1980s and 1990s along with new work from her current production.
Athena Papadopoulos – Rancho Rat-King-Cougar
Building on a body of paintings, drawings and sculptures, Canadian artist Athena Papadopoulos’s work is a cartoonish expression of her imaginary world of sex, blood and dreams.
