DEAD EXHIBITION. An almost narrative exhibition | Galerie aKonzept | 01.12.-28.12.2018

until 28.12. | #2291ARTatBerlin | Galerie aKonzept presents from 1st December 2018 the group show DEAD EXHIBITION. An almost narrative exhibition.

The idea for this exhibition came after reading a short anonymous French text. The subtitle of the exhibition “An almost narrative exhibition” was chosen because the works on display do not directly illustrate the text or tell its story. They are a supplement to its content.


db, the grandson of the famous mb and the son of the less famous jb, lives in his grandfather’s house in a
village far from a town, from which he was not allowed to leave and where he received us holding his dog
on a leash, first for a coffee on the terrace of a restaurant near the station from which we came – I think he
wanted to know if we were honest people before he let us into his house, formerly the house of his famous
grandfather – where he sat in front of us and ordered a sausage sandwich and apple juice, a coffee and
apple juice for us, without taking off his mirrored sunglasses, and we also did not take off ours, we talked
about his dog, she had hers too, then he took off his glasses, and I saw a blue one under his right eye that
wasn’t running down, I had already noticed the indicative tattoos on his forearms, we got up and went to his
house, but before he arrived he was attracted by the stiff body of a sparrow lying on his back and he wanted
to revive him and claimed that he could get him out of his lethargy with water, he told us to go on, then he
came to us and then we entered the great house of his grandfather, the famous mb, where he showed us
some works by such famous artists as his grandfather, then, because we were there to acquire a work, he
took from a large shelf a small object from 1957 by cm, which we bought, then he gave me a bill and told me
that he was more or less illiterate or dyslexic and that I shouldn’t blame him if he made spelling mistakes,
he couldn’t guess that I was writing this way to avoid spelling mistakes, which are more common when
words and style are too elaborate, and he took us back to the station, we liked each other, my girlfriend
sometimes texted him, and we saw him again a few weeks later, he seemed less tense, he knew us, didn’t
have to be suspicious anymore, we weren’t thieves, he unpacked a sculpture of hm, unscrewed it to show
us the signature and the date, it was over our budget, he almost apologized, I bought the beautiful multiple
OM MANI PADME HUM by fk from 1968, we left again after about an hour, and a few days after our visit, my
girlfriend sent him an e-mail to offer him a work of cg’s, but he didn’t answer even though we had previously
agreed to visit cm together, but since he didn’t answer my girlfriend’s e-mail, I called cm and he told me that
we could visit him the day after my call at 10 am, what we have done, and when we arrived, we told him we
would have liked to come with db, but he didn’t answer our messages, then mg said he shot his life,
