until 30.06. | #3050ARTatBerlin | Esther Schipper currently shows the group exhibition L’Invitation au voyage and invites you on a journey by viewing the works of various artists from different eras.

The long tradition of escaping the shackles of a burdensome reality for a moment by travelling to distant places in one’s imagination, whether by means of fantasy or dream, is the theme of L’Invitation au voyage, an exhibition of paintings spanning several generations and artistic approaches, opening at Esther Schipper on the occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin.

At a time when real-life travel is becoming increasingly difficult and the ease, indeed recklessness, with which we have taken this freedom for granted is being questioned, the exhibition-the title L’Invitation au voyage is taken from a poem in Charles Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal-evokes the freedom of such imaginary journeys to non-existent places.

In the last year, dream and fantasy have taken on a renewed importance as a release from the strain of the persistent uncertainty of everyday life. With its depictions of dreamlike or fantastic figures, scenes or landscapes, L’Invitation au voyage gathers works that refuse the limits of reality and give us glimpses of worlds that exist on the threshold of the real.
