until 07.10. | #3968ARTatBerlin | Galerie mutare shows from 28. July 2023 the exhibition with paintings, bronzes and wooden figures by the artists Tamim Sibai and Hans Scheib.
Tamim Sibai, born in Damascus in 1991, studied painting in his home town in Syria until the outbreak of war. Like many artists, he left the country – but not initially for Europe. In Khartoum (Sudan), he learned German and has already exhibited his experimental oil portraits in publicly acclaimed solo exhibitions. In 2018, he completed his master class studies with Prof. Burkhard Held at the UdK. Tamim Sibai has focused on the human figure, especially the portrait, increasingly abstracting and reducing. His works have already been shown at solo and group exhibitions in Damascus, Berlin, Khartoum and in a private collection in Beirut, Khartoum, Graz, Montreal, Paris and Berlin.
Hans Scheib was born in Potsdam in 1949, grew up in Berlin and studied sculpture at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. Hans Scheib is considered one of the defining German sculptors of the present day. The human figure is at the centre of his work. His sculptures and objects are expressive, sometimes absurd and provocatively aesthetic. The works always take up socio-critical and political themes without following a fashionable direction. In addition to wood sculpture, his work also includes graphics, woodcuts and bronzes. Hans Scheib’s works have been shown in numerous national exhibitions in Dresden, Essen and Berlin, among others. International projects and presentations have taken him to Finland, Brazil, Africa, London and New York, among other places. He was awarded the Carlo Schmidt Prize and the Bautzen Art Prize. His works are in public and private collections worldwide.
Exhibition dates: Friday, 28. July – Saturday, 7. October 2023
