Berliner Liste – Berlin-Germany – 15.09.2017-17.09.2017 – 1107

BERLINER LISTE

The 14th Berliner Liste, the largest Berlin Art Fair, will place in September, from 15th to 17th 2017, at one of the most important historic venues in the city – Postbahnhof. Berlin’s biggest and longest established art fair showcased affordable, innovative and contemporary artwork. Berliner Liste unites galleries and individual artists under one roof, giving them a wonderful opportunity to exhibit their art and share their visions – last year, we hosted 112 exhibitors from 25 countries. Entering the doors of our fair, more than 10.000 visitors stepped onto a journey of discovery, where contemporary art meets traditional and classical, where artists have the opportunity to meet potential buyers, make new gallery acquaintances, and enjoy the exciting ambiance. Along with the Berlin Art Week, the Berliner Liste, once again, proves that Berlin rightfully has a reputation of the world’s most cutting-edge artistic center, as well as the Berlin’s artists justify their limelight positions.

Emanuele De Reggi

« Emanuele De Reggi’s imposing bronze statues have the Olympian impassibility of pudicity.
Before offering themselves to our sight, they urge us to listen to their secret histories.
Their nature, as the Physiologist would say, becomes cold and solid by the incandescent alchemy
of a casting that, in the blue-green sparkle of its oxidation, renders their surfaces pellucid
and rippled, smooth and rough, all at one and the same time. »

Gésine Hackenberg

In haar nieuwe collectie Around and About tracht Gésine Hackenberg de vorm en energie in sieraden te vatten die door een draaibeweging ontstaan.
Het uitgangsmateriaal voor deze serie is klei, en het proces van keramiek draaien op een pottenbakkersschijf wordt een expressief medium. Gésine Hackenberg laat hierbij associaties van wervelende lichamen en tollen met klassieke vaasvormen versmelten. Zij materialiseren de bijna meditatieve concentratie die onlosmakelijk verbonden is aan het maakproces, maar ook elke dynamiek waarbij letterlijk of metaforisch een middelpunt in balans gehouden wordt.
De vorm van keramiek lijkt op dat moment een lichaam voor de menselijke geest te worden.

Thomas Lippick

Thomas Lippick is al 30 jaar bezig met een oude traditionele schildertechniek, tempera. In tegenstelling tot olieverf worden pigmenten gemengd met een emulsie waarmee ook de kleuren met water kunnen verdund worden. Dit is ideaal voor het werk van Thomas Lippick, die grootschalige, meerdere kleuren aanbrengt op het canvas om zijn individuele ontwerpen te creëren. De meervoudige lagen en kleuren van de schilderijen met hun onduidelijke, niet-specifieke beelden creëren een speciale diepte die samenhangt met het verloop van tijd, beelden van het verleden en de tijd op zich. Het soms meditatieve effect van het werk vergt de kijker om zeer nauwlettend te kijken naar de schilderijen die ze volledig onderdompelt.

Wordswordswords Part II

The exhibition ‘wordswordswords’ will shine a light on the use of words
throughout the generations. Disruptive, symbolic, soundless, imaginative, …
all the artists give their own interpretation on what words can be.

With works by Ante Timmermans, Navid Nuur, Philippe Vandenberg, Robert Devriendt, Bruce Nauman, Saâdane Afif, Marie José Burki & many more, this exhibition owes a debt to the rich world of language.

Galerie Max Hetzler announces a solo exhibition with new works by Christopher Wool in Bleibtreustrasse 45.

Since the early 1980’s, Christopher Wool explores the process and properties of painting itself. By reducing physical and compositorial principals and experimenting with different painting as well as reproduction techniques, he constantly broadens the notion of this medium. Methods of repetition, layering and erasing build major means of Wool’s artistic practice, focussing always on essential elements like form, line and colour.

In July this year, Sotheby’s will offer the only version of one of the most iconic works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti to remain in private hands. A celebration of the beauty of the artist’s first mistress, Fanny Cornforth, and a pictorial hymn to her glorious corn-gold hair, Lady Lilith comes to auction for the first time in thirty years. The work was painted during Rossetti’s most innovative period in the 1860s, when he created the cult of the Pre-Raphaelite beauty, or ‘Stunner’ as he called them, whose physical qualities were embodied by Fanny Cornforth. Two other paintings of Lady Lilith were produced by Rossetti during this decade and they now hang in museums in the US. The rediscovered picture will be offered at Sotheby’s London sale of Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite & British Impressionist Art on 13 July with an estimate of £400,000-600,000.

Who—or what—is Reena Spaulings? Since 2004 the name has stood for various collective artistic activities. Initially Reena Spaulings was the title of a novel written by an undisclosed number of anonymous authors from the circle of the artist collective Bernadette Corporation. Around the same time, a commercial gallery with an exhibition space in New York was founded, which since then has represented artists such as Merlin Carpenter, Jutta Koether, Claire Fontaine, and Klara Lidén. Also in 2004, an artist collective was formed that operates under the name of the fictional artist Reena Spaulings, creating collective paintings that are both reflective of the system and self-deprecating.

Japanese ceramic sculptor Shozo Michikawa at Lacoste Gallery – Concord, MASS – 03.06.2017-28.06.2017 – 11580

Incense Burner with White and Silver, 5.75 x 4.5 x 4.5”, stoneware.

Lacoste Gallery presents its exhibition Shozo Michikawa • Solo from June 3-28, 2017 with the internationally renowned Japanese ceramic sculptor. Michikawa is highly regarded as a contemporary master of Japanese ceramics with his work found in major museums and private collections worldwide. Born on the island of Hokkaido in the most northern part of Japan, he worked in business until evening classes gave him a passion for clay. Dedicating himself to ceramics, he works from his studio in Seto, one of the sites of the six ancient kilns in Japan. His innovative works that start on the potter’s wheel and often twist on an internal axis are sculptural yet retain a core of functional pottery. The artist insists on this “as pottery was so integral to people’s lives in Japan”. Each piece is faceted and glazed to mimic the effects of nature.
