Rafael Cidoncha - Fragments

Galerie Albrecht

Charlottenstrasse 78
10117 Berlin
Exhibition
Online since 2 July 2014

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...

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...

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...
