    OSKAR RINK - SCHICHTEN

    FEBRUARY 21 - APRIL 25, HAMBURG
    Oskar Rinks skulpturale, weiße Collagen erinnern an manifestierte Traumwelten. In der Ausstellung „Schichten“ scheint der Besucher eine solche fragile Welt gar selbst zu betreten: Den ersten Eindruck dominiert die großformatige und doch leichte, ganz in Weiß gehaltene Wandinstallation  HÜLLE. Ihr Gegenüber stehen fünf Vitrinen, die Einblicke in verschiedene Miniaturwelten bieten: Scheinbar den Gesetzen der Statik und Schwerkraft trotzend, schweben die grazilen Konstruktionen CONATUS (2014), MORGEN (2014) und DER GEDANKE (2014) losgelöst über schwarzen Podesten. Allein zarte Verstrebungen geben den architektonischen Fragmenten halt und fügen diese zu kleinteiligen Kompositionen zusammen.

    KATRIN FRIDRIKS - STENDHAL SYNDROME - FEATURE BY WIDEWALLS
    Circle Culture Gallery Berlin is currently showing Stendhal Syndrome, a solo show by the Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks. The title of the show comes from the series of works she has been producing as her visualization of “a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art“. The theme has been elaborated through the exhibited works and the overall setup, but most of all, through a captivating main installation of the show including a large canvas work that can be examined through a custom made magnifying glass.
