Summer Road Trip

Rena Bransten Projects

1639 Market Street
94103 San Francisco, CA
Exhibition
Online since 4 July 2014

Summer in America means road trips, evoking notions of freedom and adventure, of spectacular landscapes and expansive skies. The work in "Summer Road Trip" at Rena Bransten Projects doesn't show that kind of road trip. Taking a cue from John Water's hitchhiking journey from Baltimore to San Francisco, chronicled in his recent book "Carsick", our summer group exhibition explores the off-putting, humorously mundane, and potentially creepy sides to hitting the road.

Rafael Cidoncha - Fragments

Galerie Albrecht

Charlottenstrasse 78
10117 Berlin
Exhibition
Online since 2 July 2014

Four years ago, Rafael Cidoncha developed the idea for a series of paintings, and now the exhibition in Berlin led him to realise it. It was a very intense creative phase for the artist: he produced 20 paintings in a little less than two months. In them, he processes the Spanish world that he encountered in his early youth without understanding it; a world that only those who experienced it themselves can understand. Read more...

Andreas Eriksson

Exhibition
Online since 30 June 2014

Since his youth, the Swedish artist Andreas Eriksson (b. 1975, Björsäter) has been preoccupied with painting both as medium and as subject. His atmospheric works are evocative of the landscape surrounding his studio in the Swedish countryside. At the same time, he is less interested in creating images than in using canvas and paint to project and formulate his visual and emotional experience of the natural environment. Read more...

Online since 30 June 2014

Previously shown in the Polish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2013, the sound sculpture by Konrad Smoleński (b. 1977, Kalisz, Pl) is based primarily on the manipulation of the tolling of a bell, an ancient instrument that has for centuries set the rhythm of our earthly and "eternal" lives. Through the process of transforming the familiar tone of church bells, Smoleński also changes its meaning. Read more...
