until 25.06. | #0514ARTatBerlin | As part of Gallery Weekend Berlin, Galerie Thomas Schulte presents from the 30th April 2016 the exhibition Rhythms with new works by Idris Khan paralleled in the Corner Space of the gallery by »Triptych: a work in situ« by Daniel Buren.
In his third solo exhibition at Galerie Thomas Schulte, Idris Khan will show a new large sculpture, and several paintings on glass, aluminium and paper. Khan’s latest works are characterised by materially and constructively superimposing layers of text through a process of repeatedly layering the surface with painted lines of language and numbers. In a new work called Rhythms 2 (2016) Khan will display 27 oil stick paintings on sheet music. Here, the notation has been blocked out leaving the natural breaks on the page. As a group it takes on a minimal presentation creating a rhythm of shifting lines across the gallery wall. This exhibition reflects the artist’s interest in philosophy, art history, music and the importance of scripture in relation to cultural memory informed from a wide range of authors, including a.o. Jacques Monod, Barnett Newman and Paul Celan.
Daniel Buren for his new project at Galerie Thomas Schulte is going to transform the gallery’s prominent window on the corner of Leipziger Straße and Charlottenstraße. Since the 1960s, Buren uses the iconic 8,7 cm wide stripes as a ‘visual tool’ for his works in situ. The stripes, chosen for their neutralising and anonymysing effects, which the artist applies to walls, windows, and other architectural features, serve as a political intervention dissolving existing distinctions between inside and outside, private and public.
