NEZAKET EKICI - EVERYTHING WE POSSESS POSSESSES US, TOO
Performances, installations, videos

June 7th - August 16th, 2015

The exhibition tells a story of boundless possibilities, obstacles and outdated taboos, of interaction, corporeality and spiritual freedom. Not least, however, it tells a story of being possessed by possession for as long as we have not found the key to our own independence.

Time and again Nezaket Ekici‘s projects and actions equate to self-assurances in a multicultural, globally expanding society. As a woman and human being the master student of Marina Abramović throws herself against this trend with all the force and self-confidence at her disposal, creating strong images in the viewer‘s mind and triggering mental processes of transformation, bursting through limitations.

72 Leiko Ikemura

 

Summer visitor, August 22 – September 6, 2015

LEIKO IKEMURA - PRELUDE

The Japanese artist Leiko Ikemura has delved into the world of the coloured woodcuts by Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1853) since 2009. With delicate pastels she records her responses to his most famous series, the "Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō", covering the pre-eminent sights along the eastern coast of Honshū.

The serene meeting of popular landscapes from around the middle of the 19th century with the interpretations of a confident painter and sculptress in the Berlin of the early 21st century seems like a mirage rising from the depths of the world’s collective memory into our present age.
