until 13.05. | #3830ARTatBerlin | Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung presents an exhibition of the artist Johannes Regin from April 1, 2023.
Looking into the microcosm of Johannes Regin, into overlapping fragments of traces with the smallest deviations of dot placement, of tension shifts in the rhythm of his grids requires concentration. Seeping, old traces of paint and remnants of signs attract attention. The abundance in the evenly appearing order of these meditative pictorial spaces becomes perceptible. The individual dots are double and triple superimposed dot characters. Moments of the artist’s collection are transferred to us viewers. Regin gets involved with the found material he has consciously selected in a lengthy process. It is immediately clear to him how large his innumerable dots have to be, whether they have to be applied by drawing or painting or whether they have to be pierced, punched or chiseled into the material. Found objects are a counterpart for him, he looks into their stories; gently touching or hard set, a state of suspension is evoked. Stronger colors come into play from the edges – recently also as concentrated color fields. Regin has drawn a nuanced framework for his works that is ready to absorb change. A macrocosm is inherent in his microcosm. This can spread out in recent wall drawings in Eberswalde. Johannes Regin conquered dilapidated gate wings with his dotted grids. The contrast of underground and new occupation leads to a timeless weightlessness between intention and decay, in which surprising energies unfold.
