until 23.05. | #0038ARTatBerlin | BERLINARTPROJECTS is presenting a group exhibition with the six gallery artists Daniel Harms, Ulrich Riedel, Yaşam Şaşmazer, Eda Soylu, Claudia Vitari and Meike Zopf. The exhibition will continuously re-constitute itself as individual works are being swapped and therefore context and effect change simultaneously. The works of the artists give an insight into different views of the world, filtered and shaped by their own thoughts, experiences and world views.
Whether the art involves reflections, critical perceptions or alternative concepts, each new setting creates its own reality. The works mutually enrich each other, again and again emphasizing new aspects. The replacement of one work therefore also affects the entire exhibition – as new concepts and relations are gained, others disappear its reality becomes ‘recharged’.
One remarkable position in the show are the ‘dying flowers in concrete’, that will be shown to a later time during the exhibition. The young Turkish artist Eda Soylu embeds flowers in concrete. At the beginning they are still able to draw water from the slowly drying material while then gradually they dry out and die.
The pieces shown range from drawings and paintings to photography and sculpture. The cultural backgrounds are equally diverse; as the artists originate from countries such as Turkey, Italy as well as Germany.
