until 31.03. | #1881ARTatBerlin | Dorothée Nilsson Gallery currently shows the exhibition “Faces and Movements” by the artist Yvon Chabrowski.
For her current series of works, the artist Yvon Chabrowski (born in East Berlin) dealt with the functioning of three monitoring and recognition systems that recognize and evaluate faces, movements or feelings. In a setting of video installation and live performance, she makes various aspects of these systems visually and spatially tangible and opens up a fragmented view of the relationship between the image / surveillance image and the body.
“Images and role models created by surveillance systems are registered in the body – how much freedom can one still live?”
Yvon Chabrowski studied photography at the Leipzig Academy of Visual Arts with Timm Rautert and Florian Ebner, and fine art at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. She graduated from the master class with Peter Piller. In her work she deals with medial pictorial formulas, which she removes from her context and thereby alienates and even makes tangible. Her sculptural video installations convey awareness of the grammar and manipulation strategies of ubiquitous media images. Her works have been shown in numerous international exhibitions, including the EIGEN & ART Lab in Berlin (2009 and 2014), the 4th Moscow Biennale for Young Art (2014), the Liechtenstein Art Museum (2016), the 5th Odessa Biennale “Turbulence” and “Between Post-truths and Events”, Frestas Trienal, Sao Paulo (2017). This year she has already received the Aartists in Residence – a program of the Foreign Office in cooperation with the Landesverband Berliner Galerien (lvbg).
