Im Mittelpunkt der Ausstellung Marianischen Antiphonen I – III steht ein Performancezyklus, der vom 5. August bis 7. August 2019 in und um den Marienwallfahrtsort Fátima in Portugal stattfand. Die dokumentarischen Fotographien der vollzogenen Handlung, die wie alle Performances Gabriels ohne Ankündigung im öffentlichen Raum stattfand, werden in der Ausstellung mit poetischen Texten, Fragmenten und konzeptuellen Arbeiten kombiniert und präsentiert.
Im zentralportugiesischen Fátima soll im Sommer 1917 an einer Steineiche die Muttergöttin Maria drei Hirtenkindern insgesamt sechsmal erschienen sein. Sie vertraute ihnen eine Prophezeiung an, die als die Drei Geheimnisse von Fátimain die Geschichte einging. Der Titel Marianische Antiphonen greift die an die Gottesmutter gerichteten Gesänge (Antiphonen = Wechselgesänge) in der christlichen Liturgie auf. Sie verweisen auf das Motiv der Schutzmantelmadonna, die sie seit Beginn der Entwicklung dieser Performancereihe inspirierte. Maria als liebende, wärmende, verständnisvolle und schützende Mutter.
I am looking and I see myself looking out – Shino Nam & Viktor Petrov
Shinoh Nam (born in 1993, South Korea) lives and works in Düsseldorf and Berlin. Nam is enrolled as a Fine Art student with Monica Bonvicini at UDK Berlin and Architecture with Donatella Fioretti at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. He has previously worked in Photography and Visual Media in Seoul, where he also obtained a qualification in psychological counselling.
Viktor Petrov (born in 1991, Bulgarien) based in Berlin, he finished his Meisterschülerabschluss at UDK Berlin with Prof. Monica Bonvicini in 2021. Petrov’s oeuvre explores socio-political contexts embodied in architecture and everyday objects. In his sculptural and graphic practices, he transforms materials and symbols to highlight their ambivalent meaning.
Shinoh Nam and Viktor Petrov met at university and have been sharing a common workspace ever since. In their upcoming exhibition, they will explore the topics of architecture and spatial observation within a display space. Through their sculptural bodies, consisting of transparent surfaces or structural fragments such as steel beams or facade connectors, they reflect on how architecture affects society and our identity. While Nam’s work deals with psychological and philosophical notions of perception, Petrov’s main interests are focused on sociological and political dimensions.

The borders between art and design are becoming increasingly blurred. In this exhibition, artists and designers Leon Emanuel Blanck, Illya Goldman Gubin, Mathias Hornung, Ia Kutateladze and Jakub Kubica will offer us works that are not luxurious, not abstract nor purely functional; rather they offer a response to modern living that combine various points of view- intuition as well as logic; poetry as well as common sense.

Suffer nothing to remain outside- Michal Martychowiec

Download the exhibition text: Suffer nothing to remain outside
It is usual for a visitor of a gallery or a museum to come with an expectation to ‘see something’. And thus, a visit to the exhibition Suffer nothing to remain outside might offer a surprise, for the space of the gallery remains thoroughly filled with thick fog making it impossible to see anything but oneself. In this exhibition, Martychowiec utilises various media such as films, neon tubes and fog installations to allow us for a personalized touch at our past and present circumstance.
