until 12.11. | #0847ARTatBerlin | Westphal Berlin currently shows the exhibition “Beyond the blinding spectacle” by the artist Robert Stieghorst.
“He has an endless arsenal of images and like a bricoleur builds from images meant to be exist in different contexts new sentences. He resets the reality in wich those images already existed and gives them a fresh meaning and a new perspective. It is a hybrid method that initiates a third space where known truths start to quiver and are revalidated, a space whose associative dynamics are not clear. This imbalanced state, reflected time, the very compositions of the works, the literary form of the cento and its eccentric intertextuality is there to wake the dead and to reboot the imagination, an act much needed in times where this human quality is systematically disappearing through blinding spectacles.”
