Gonzalo Reyes Araos: …the sky is falling asleep on the desk of the time… March 16 – April 28, 2023
Having recently returned to Berlin after seven months of working with artists in the Atacama desert in northern Chile, the title of the exhibition comes from an AI series of predictive text prompts that was generated from his past correspondence. Computer code will be turned into puzzle pieces where meaning can be shifted by moving the blocks. There will also be patterned grids of multiple paper strips with glitches representing the constellations of the indigenous Atacameño people of the desert who because of the absence of light pollution have too many intensely bright stars and instead seek their constellations in the empty black space between the stars.
Andrew Gilbert – Spring 2023
Scottish artist Andrew Gilbert will be presenting a solo exhibition of his works for the first time in Vienna. Long-known for his radical installations, drawings, and paintings that address the historic and ongoing violence of imperialism in imaginative ways, Gilbert reminds us that we are far from the postcolonial future that we would like to envision. In his upcoming exhibition, Andrew Gilbert will continue to confront our romantic notions of the past by showing us that empires of oppression are very much alive, from today’s great power games playing out on the geo-political stage to the everyday violence used to bring products to the market.
Gracelee Lawrence: Collected Trot – December 15, 2022 – February 18, 2023
Exhibiting for the first time in Europe, New York-based artist Gracelee Lawrence will present a series of her pioneering 3_D printed sculptures. NY Times critic Roberta Smith recently wrote that “Lawrence ingenuously exploits her small 3-D printers and described her work as “mouthwatering”, “gorgeous” and “covetable.” Working from scans of her own body and various plant and fruit forms, these digital files render the organic into works of startling originality.
