Press release by Manuel Osterholt:

“… for each beginning bears a special magic that nurtures living and bestows protection.”
Hermann Hesse

“With the group exhibition THE NEW YESTERDAY, HVW8 Gallery Berlin celebrates new beginnings in challenging times.
The ever changing landscapes, physical and psychological, shifting to new manifestations. Resting for a singular
moment, to transform into another the next. How does it feel to make this first step into the unknown. The uncertain
that lies ahead and how do we react to it, in a leap of faith. The artist is by nature repeating this process, with every new
work. It becomes a part of the process. Selected works from the artists’ most recent series are shown together for the
first time. And we´re off to new beginnings.”

HVW8 Berlin, Linienstr. 161, 10115 Berlin
Opening: February 10th, 6-9 pm
Exhibition: February 11th – April 15th
Opening hours: Tue-Sat, 2-7 pm

44flavours — ”No more process, only instant results“

”No more process, only instant results“
by 44flavours

Exhibition – Opening: Thursday 9th of February 2023 at 6pm
at: Bar da Suêni, R. do Ribeirão, 24 – Centro, São Luís, MA, Brazil

The initial idea of this project is to show painting as a medium in motion.
The body of work consists of a mural (about 5m x 6m) and 10 painted T-shirts, which will be activated by exhibition visitors.
Above all, the work is about rethinking the medium of painting, or about the question of how painting can be further developed in the 21st century.
In addition, it’s about the interdisciplinary intersection between painting and dance.
The natural course of movement in the everyday context is declared as dance or performance.
The work becomes a fluid snapshot that constantly changes and creates new images.
For the realization of the project, I collaborated with @maricecosta and @concitacostan to create 10 oversized linen T-shirts. The oversized t-shirt as the basic form becomes a robe, a costume in which one side is painted over the entire surface and the other side is printed with pinstripes. The robe becomes the canvas, the painting surface, the painting gives the fashion item an object-like quality.
At the opening of the exhibition, 10 different people will be wearing the robes in the same format, so that the robes create different effects due to the size variations.
These people move naturally in front of the painted mural during the opening, but become part of the exhibition.
Because they present the painting in motion, they become the protagonists of a performance.
The exhibition is accessible to everyone and takes place in public space.

The title of the exhibition is an allusion/ parody of the fast pace of life, that results are constantly being presented, but that basically every moment of a process is nothing more than a kind of momentary result.
The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the project space @chaoslz in the context of an artist residency.
The project was curated by @marciadeaquino13

44flavours — You Never Know When the Bridge Falls Apart

You Never Know When the Bridge Falls Apart

Posted by JR on December 2nd 2022 in Exhibitions

A Group Show with 12 Artists
Opening: 02 Dec 2022, 18–21:30 h

”12 different positions by a spontaneously thrown together bunch of great & unique artists and Trouble friends, curated by Jenne Grabowski, formed into a community on a voyage, a family. Something that we could have missed in recent years, something that was even partly on trial.

”You Never Know When the Bridge Falls Apart“ – a synonym for being vigilant, the unexpected thing, when important questions are left to your intuition rather than shredding your brain. And before running to one side or the other, it might be good to stop and look around, stay in and foster the community, flock together – carrying each other, sharing, supporting, for the jokes, and the happiness. And lots more.

With no strings attached, no social credits needed, we unite, keep the bridge steady and move forward in our spaceship, together! Opening on Friday, 2 Dec 2022 at StudioTrouble™ in Berlin-Kreuzberg.”
