until 17.05. | #2012ARTatBerlin | Galerie Berlin-Baku shows from 27th April 2018 the exhibition “Caught in Reality & Future” by the artist Sabine Burmester with a sound installation of Steven Kovar.
To kick-off the Gallery Weekend we present for the 3rd time a “From Waste to Art” artist at our gallery. This year it is the German artist Sabine Burmester. As with Khalil Chishtee (2015) and Kitty Wales (2016), the artist gets the gallery space for free development and the installation is created within a specified period of time inside the gallery premises. Let’s get surprised!
“Materials from nature and everyday life play a very important role in my artwork. Old, proven, consumed, used, discarded materials are communicating with each other on canvas, they are interdependent but at the same time approaching, supporting and complementing each other. I consciously use their surface structures, their colours and characters for my compositions. In conjunction with a broad, complementary colour spectrum (acryl), they show the subject of being human, the transience, the persistence and discovery of new (living) spaces. I place the materials in a new context. This is how artworks with contemporary and environmental political, economic and social critical statements are created.

My working motto is: “to constantly get involved in new things, to get things which arise in front of my eyes with spontaneity!”
The installation in the Galerie Berlin-Baku deals with the limitations of life, which either are selected by one’s self or through no fault of one’s own showing the horizon of everyone. Trapped in a net means in the broadest sense the instrumentalization of human being by recognizable and unrecognizable external and internal influences: whether trapped in conventions, in relationships, in data network, in a totalitarian state, in the power of economy and banks or in the inherent environmental sins – paralyzed like the victim of a spider.”
