Where the digital becomes physical: Galerie Salon Halit Art in Berlin-Kreuzberg presented artists of YOUR ART BEAT, February 14 through 28, 2019
The group exhibition displayed a selection of artworks of some of YOUR ART BEAT’s unique and versatile international artists. For the prints, different materials were used such as glass and aluminium, but also FineArt Paper.
The visual artist Lita Poliakova (Life Is Torturing Awesome) portrays mental and physical transfiguration and recycles paper agents in order to catalyse the novelty. Her digital collages were printed on glass. She also presented a video on the creation of her work.
Dryden Roesch is an artist and graphic designer from Edmonton, Canada. Most of his recent work depicts architectural environments in vibrant and surreal ways to create an imagined (and sometimes disorienting) sense of place.
Sonia Bensouda is exploring the notions of time and space. She is an Interior Architect and Collage artist. Through digital collage and photography, she intends to explore the notions of Time and Space in the Urban environment. Her digital collages with old photography are printed on FineArt Paper.
Natalia Poniatowska is swinging between the digital and analogue photography, still and moving image. Project White is her investigation into the notion of absence of colour. She wanted to investigate what happens when we take out the colour of food. She painted the fruits white and they became completely new objects that are no longer associated with food and taste. She wants to make others notice how beautiful our senses are.
The London-based photographer Imogen Davis believes that photography is used to capture moments of peoples’ lives, moments that would otherwise be lost in our memories forever. For MY BREATH she learnt how to blow her own glass, making physical recreations of her breath that now have memories of their own. The MY BREATH series I-X was printed on glass.
Christoph Kühl’s works are almost exclusively collages, i.e. they are made of painted paper by using various techniques. The viewer is taken on a journey through three-dimensional spaces. Christoph’s collages are the projection surface of these sensational sites. Found image pieces are put together to convey new impressions.
Renate Marschner (1953-1990) was an artist from Lower Saxony and worked as a painter and broadcasting author in Berlin, Karlsruhe, and Switzerland. She has displayed her works in Berlin, Heidelberg, and New York. Her works deal with the issue of getting used to understanding things we don’t see.
For Zsolt Gyarmati, Art is Confrontation. The objective of his art is some sort of status report. Art should make people conscious of unconscious things. He showed the video DIOXINDAUER in Berlin.
Selma Köran (video) and Jonathan Rosenberg (music) have created an audiovisual dialogue with Renate Marschner that was shown for the first time. It is based on Renate Marschner’s drawing SPERRUNG (BLOCKING), oil chalk on school board lacquer. Selma Köran made a stop motion film with knead and Jonathan set it to music.
Lita, Dryden, and Christoph attended the opening of the exhibition. Thank you for this.
