until 23.07. | #0574ARTatBerlin | Guido W. Baudach is presenting from 4th June 2016 the group exhibition”East of Eden”.
East of Eden is a collaborative project between New York based artists Grear Patterson and Yves Scherer which takes its title from John Steinbeck’s novel published in 1952. Conceived as an exhibition series, this project unfolds over multiple stages and cities in the month of June and Galerie Guido W. Baudach is pleased to present its first chapter.
For this the artists take over the back space of the gallery, usually reserved for private viewings by collectors, with an immersive environment inspired by a recent trip of the artists across the USA down to Mexico and their experience of shared living in the northern part of the Bronx.
This installation is extended into the entrance area of the gallery which has been turned into a waiting room, offering seats and distraction to the visitors. Here you will be welcomed by the inhabitant of the space, Anahid, who takes over the role of the host and of the emcee. As you follow her through the narrow corridor you enter a rather domestic setting. There is a little kitchen table, some candles and there is rainbow motif on the wall. Take a cookie from the bowl, they’re home made, and some tea too. It’s like the oracle’s place, a transition area where dimensions meet, an interface. Sit down and have a little chat with the medium if you feel like. It’s your time.
In the back corner of the space you will find an area of comfort, that’s where the magic happens. Anahid will guide you to it, help you with the glasses and start the program.
