until 04.09. | #3103ARTatBerlin | Galerie Thomas Schulte currently shows the solo exhibition Listen to me, little pig! by the artist Maria Loboda.
Maria Loboda’s exhibition Listen to me, little pig! at Galerie Thomas Schulte is dedicated to the failures, double interpretations and misinterpretations in the communication between humans and nature. With characteristic wit and irony, the artist transforms the space: a series of prints of pastoral landscape paintings bear hand-embossed titles of unexpected ambient soundtracks. The prints form the panoramic backdrop for Loboda’s fragmented garden landscape. Between fruit trees growing out of brutalist sculptures and candle-shaped overgrown metal trellises, the artist plants manipulated quotations from literature, music and art history, among which visitors mingle to be seduced.
In the gallery’s Cornerspace, artist Lawrence Weiner’s exhibition Dried Earth & Scattered Ashes Or Dried Earth & Buried Gold Or will be presented at the same time. The gallery is delighted that Lawrence Weiner has accepted the invitation to show a work in the gallery’s Corner Space this summer. Weiner defines his work as sculpture. Sculpture consists of language and the material to which it refers. Here, language is the primary form in which the work exists. When the installation of the work that Weiner designed specifically for the Corner Space disappears, the frame of what the language represents to the viewer will remain; in other words, the concept will remain in the context of the viewer of the work. This is what stands the test of time, a continuum whose values remain for the viewer if he or she chooses to do so. With the publication of his first artist’s book Statements in 1968, Weiner is one of the pioneers of conceptual art.
Galerie Thomas Schulte would like to thank Hubert Winter, Vienna, and Konrad Fischer, Düsseldorf/Berlin, for their kind cooperation in making this exhibition possible.
Opening: Friday, 16 July 20201, 6-21 p.m.
