until 08.06. | #1271ARTatBerlin | galerie gerken shows from 28th April 2017 the exhibition “Nah und Fern” by the artist Dieter Mammel.
With the solo exhibition “Nah und Fern” the artist Dieter Mammel gives a comprehensive insight into his personal impressions and experiences in interaction with the political events of our time. Escape, search, journey and location of the human being and the associated longing for arrival and acceptance are facing a loud, blind rage of self-aggrandizement and self-staging. Mammel sensitively commutes between those possible states of being, grasps the subtle emotional differences and similarities of excesses and thus provides a profound image of his, our world. In the well-known monochromy of his tinged paintings, the portrayed characters appear against the wind and the weather, hurry and dwell surrounded by water and forest, look into the distance with their eyes wide open and search for knowledge.
