This week it is Art Week in Berlin and of course we will be there to give you some impressions of what is going on and let you participate in the wide range of events. Last night a nice and simple beginning took place at the opening of sommer & kohl gallery in their new space in Berlin Tiergarten. The exhibition Brot & Salz (bread & salt) displays works by twelve, mostly female artists, including Mai-Thu Perret and Monica Bonvicini. The fact that the pieces are not tagged with the artists‘ names makes it a bit difficult to distinguish their creator, but also leads to a harmonious atmosphere: The gallery did a pretty good curatorial job.
In some cases a close observation is advantageous: A white latex-like curtain that is flooded with light will only reveal thousands of imprinted letters and typographies when you get close in enough. A chair on the wall carrying a collage of pictures lets you know its deeper and quite poetic meaning only when you make the effort to read the small-sized text the artist wrote on the images. But other pieces also become accessible on first sight, like the photography of a Jeff-Koons-like balloon chair or the cement-stone that is covered with small objects like dices, dominos and seashells.
