until 29.03. | #2674ARTatBerlin | The GalerieETAGE of the Museum Reinickendorf shows from 24th January 2020 the exhibition Eroberung des Raumes (> Conquest of Space) with artworks by the artists Ashley Scott and Daniel Sambo Richter.
With “Conquest of Space”, GalerieETAGE Reinickendorf presents an exhibition in which the artistic positions of sculpture by Ashley Scott and painting by Daniel Sambo-Richter enter into a dialogue with each other. The works share an intense colorfulness and uncompromising form-finding, their presence taking possession of the surrounding space.
Daniel Sambo-Richter’s dark, dehumanized ice landscapes and armored samurai address the relationship between power and powerlessness created by humans. This apocalyptic mood in painting meets the offensive colourfulness of Ashley Scott’s sculptures. The latter deals with themes such as identity, discrimination and class thinking.
Ashley Scott covers the history of her own Black history as well as the history of her family, including issues such as slavery, sexism, minority segregation and racial discrimination. The exhibition Hair Hats and Aunt Fancie, which was also on view at the White Square Gallery in autumn 2019, shows 13 works by American Ashley Scott. Her real Aunt Fancie, her own family history and especially the history of the women in her family are the central thread in her works. It is the third series on this theme. Parallel to the group exhibition at GalerieETAGE Reinickendorf, works from the series will be shown at Centre Never Apart Montreal as part of the Black History Month there.
Scott’s works are loud, demanding and intrusive, inspired by jazz musicians such as Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane, who have based their brilliance on the dissolution of existing rules and harmonies. The accidental and the deliberate are bundled into a unity.
Scott’s themes are arduous and political and confront social conditions of different eras in the relentless reappraisal of one’s own identity as a black, discriminated and sexualized woman whose cultural identity has been stolen from her.
Ashley Scott is living and working in Berlin for several years now. She is represented in Berlin by the White Square Gallery.
