Black Napkin, Blanca.art, Corinne Glaziou, Gritta Roesing, Tati S. Titch
Two Berlin photographers/artists/gallerists inviting three international guests from cyberspace: as the title suggests, an associative collection of freshly combined, mostly handmade works, focussing on original photography, at this cozy little place in an up-and-coming “Moabit art mile”.
BLACK NAPKIN from Italy, a poetic artist and archeologist, shows NOTHING PERSONAL: “The world is full of images, virtual images. We see more images per day than our grandmothers saw throughout their lives.” He tries to reflect on the value and selection of images and words.
CORINNE GLAZIOU, a dancer / photographer / medical biologist from France, offers CRYPTOZOOLOGY: “Collages and assemblages allow me to evolve with unlimited freedom in a space like a dancer on a little scene, playing with different energies”.
TATI S. TITCH, a young, universal, instant and streetart producer: “What really disturbs me: shifts of priorities in people’s minds. We have stopped looking up at the stars, too concentrated on entertainment and consuming.” So her series KOSMOS is about space as an alternative.
GRITTA ROESING’s installation FIREWALLS OF HUMAN RIGHTS contains hand-written articles of the UN declaration of the human rights on oversized B/W shots of demolished houses along the former Berlin Wall – “a vivid memorial”.
BLANCA.art creates her own flood of imagery in MOCK MURALS, loose clusters of her color pictures and drawings – opposed by I GOT YOU, an old, bandaged album filled with “rough and tough collages from an earlier stAge”.
