brot.undspiele galerie presents
Opening: 28.08.2009 at 7 pm
Opening hours: tue.–sat. 3 pm–7 pm
Kinga Dunikowska is known for her installations, which take the spectator to generally known, but purely virtual places. With poetry and with a wink, the contemplator gets seduced and becomes often enough part of the staging.
In her older works the places are mostly mystical and part of a narrative or mythological tradition. Now the artist builts her newest work around a strict abstract question. But the result is not less enchanting.
Oscar Wilde’s conclusion »Illusion is the first of all pleasures« gets deconstructed by Kinga Dunikowska and like a complex mechanism separeted into it’s main components. That her poetic interpretation is neither limited to the aesthetical surface nor to an exclusively subjective perspective, but also describes the motor of our society, must be seen as an exceptional quality of this work.
However, the exhibition offers all components for a new mythology: The all-seeing eye of god, a tree of knowledge, melancholy, beauty and seduction through the attraction of the eternal new.
Since 2005 brot.undspiele galerie berlin presents artists who‘s works bring unconventional impulses to art. Hereby we concentrate on contemporary art of the last 30 years. Mostly we are interested in the tension between the works of different generations of artists.
