Oscar Muñoz: El Coleccionista — at carlier | gebauer

Muñoz’s work stages scenarios in which we witness the accumulation, dissolution, deterioration, or disintegration of the image. Manipulating evanescent elements like water, dust, heat, sun, and time, he has poetically reflected upon the fleeting nature of the human condition through unconventional formats such as mirrored portraits activated by breath or a vanishing self-portrait made with water on hot cement.

OLIVER WESTERBARKEY: DIE LANDSCHAFT FÄNGT AN, WO DER MENSCH AUFHÖRT — at 68projects

Throughout history humankind has attempted to control nature, much as depicted in the Baroque gardens of the late-16th century, who’s geometric treatment of gardens depicted the power of man over nature. Oliver Westerbarkey, instead, communicates within his work that nature can exist without humankind, and it is in fact humans who cannot exist without a relation to their surroundings.

Far Back Must Go Who Wants To Do A Big Jump— at Chert Lüdde

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from an eponymous work by Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, one of her quintessential typewritten visual poems. The phrase alludes to a series of backwards steps that are necessary to take in order to jump forward, a dualistic notion which provides the golden thread of the exhibition.
